Another year but none the wiser???

That is totally not correct. How come after a year and somebody could be none the wiser??
Everyone must be wiser or more knowledgeable one way or another. Wiser about life for instance. More experience, etc.

Another year gone by in my life. What have I gain last year? Many. All the bitter and sweet experience that makes life more meaningful. All the bad things that even how hard i tried to forget but couldn't (if only I have selective amnesia), but sure make me more matured. And the good things.
What have I to anticipate for another year? Only the goods I hope. Please, please no more heart breaking, heart wrenching things.

I wish for a life full of love, full of good friends, full of sweet memories.

p.s.- that's the 'nice' wishes.
the not so nice wishes- I want a kitchen aid mixer, iphone, macbook, new handbag, new shoes, a car, a house, some cash would do, bla, bla, bla....

p.s.s- Mr. AB, why oh why do u have to be in Germany? Your office always have very bad timing!

Of catwalk models and Flu bugs

I have a dream
A song to sing
To help me cope
With anything....

Well...once upon a time, I had this most ridiculous dream.
I rather called it a fantasy rather than a dream, because i never think it will ever comes true. I was right about that.
I fantasized my self being a model.
Yup true...being a catwalk model. funny it may sounds
It started when I was still in primary school. This fantasy grew up with me. It..well...let's say it ended when I was in college.

I imagined myself in expensive, beautiful dresses, with the right accesories, beautiful stilettos, walking down the runway, full of confident.
On sleepless night, when i had trouble falling to sleep, that was what I do.

That was just too much, for someone who is not that attractive, rarely wears make up, and only wear flat sandals...

Anyway, on a second thought, I don't think I could live their life. Mmmmmm...n do they really change clothes in front of peoples backstage???

Fantasy of a girl...sometimes can make you gag...


On other notes, I was hit by the nasty flu bugs. The bugs didn't only hit my respiratory system, but also my eyes! nasty bugs, terrible bugs...
I'm much better today.

Have you lied?

Can somebody answer me??
Why do people lie?

ok..ok..there are thousands or may be millions reasons of why people lie.

I am sure everyone did, at some time in their life.

Do you think you could get away with your lies?
Please think before you do that again.
Most of the time, you will get caught. You won't get away if you do bad thing, u will get caught one way or another.

Lies hurt people's feelings.
Lies make people cry.
Lies make whatever effort you made so far seems worthless.
Lies make people not to trust you.
Lies make people have doubt of your every move.

LIES HURT....full stop.

Someone, once, have shared with me that- never lie even if the truth hurts.

My current state- I am suffering from a nasty flu, with red eyes, and PISSED...

FOUR she is....

Laiqa Najma is four on the 21st March.
I did not do anything special on the day.
Mainly because, Mr AB not home. Secondly because little Munif and me are down with flu. Laiqa herself and Umar had just recovered from the flu bug.

Anyway, we (me and Umar) sang her happy birthday early in the morning. Mr Ab called to wish his princess a happy birthday.
Then she requested me to bake her 'Dora the Explorer' cupcakes. And wanted me to buy her Barbie doll and a milk bottle for Sonia (her baby doll) for her birthday present. I leave the present part to the daddy when he's back from India (what?? another trip to India?? he must be really fascinated with the place or what..).

I postponed the Dora cupcakes until Mr AB's back. Anyway, amid my fever and headache, managed to bake her some plain 'red velvet' cupcakes.

She is four now. But I still think she is such a baby. So much different when Umar was four back then. Umar is more independent, friendly, talkative, etc. He is more mature.
Laiqa is shy. She still is her father's baby girl.

Anyway, now she has two brother who love to tease her.
One is Umar of course. He would tease her from the break of dawn till bedtime.

Notice that he is drinking from a pink Dora tumbler that belongs to Laiqa. He always does that purposely, so that Laiqa would scream her heart out and cry.
And you haven't seen this boy in action in teasing her sister. He has got his own tricks too.

What a handful for Laiqa. :)

Switch off the lights... will ya

I am a nature lover, yes I am.
I try to 'Go Green' as much as I could. It's hard to go green.
Yes, it seems so difficult to love the earth, and to do our part in preserving it.
And sometimes, it does seem more expensive.
For instance, if we want to change all our cleaning products, from the usual brands (FAB, Breeze, Dynamo), to a more natural products, it'll cost us more. They are surely more expensive.

A bit of info here (yeah, yeah..some facts...just bare with me... hey, it's for your own knowledge ok!)
Earth Hour is an annual international event created by WWF, held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change.

Just stop for a moment and 'stare', how many electrical appliances in our home are in stand by mode or are always switch on. And what a small gesture, to switch them off when not in use, and that alone can already make a difference. Thia small gesture actually helps (claims to save a few percentage of energy consumption, thus less CO2 released). May be it won't do anything to the 'green house' effect that is already worsening, but it create awareness.

Too much for your idle mind???
Let me try to put this in simpler sentence. - You out there who just think- the heck with the world! Just switch 'em off. You'll save money for your electricity. That extra cash, sure will comes needy.

On 28th March, 8.30pm, I'll be watching the TV in the dark, with the fan on. Hehhehe..does that make me a hypocrite? Mmm... May be I could turn off the TV too.
Candlelight dinner...anyone??

Gamma Linolenic Acid

Now comes an entry that is more educated compare to just the usual entries-'blabbering of a mom of 3'. hehhehe..
( Ms D asked me about GLA the other day. So, here goes..)

Gamma Linolenic Aid, or GLA in short. It is an essential fatty acid, found primarily in borage seed oil, evening primrose oil or blackcurrant seed oil. Essentials fatty acids (EFA) are a group of fatty acids that is needed by the body, but could not be produce (in the body). It has to be taken from food.

I will just give a short info about it, rather than go into all the medical jargon of GLA.

Researches found that GLA has an anti-inflamatory properties. If taken regularly, it will combat all the illness that is caused by inflammatory response, such as, PMS, arthritis, autoimmune diseases or eczema.

GLA is sold here as a dietary supplement, in a capsules form.

Think twice before you ask...

One thing you should now, never to ask people about their kids, be it their kids are still kids, or already adults. The parents will start telling you everything about them...bla..bla..bla...

Recently, 'saya' has been asking about Laiqa (kakak).
Lately, I rarely posted pictures of the kids, compare to last time.
Anyway, just for your pleasure.... (gag reflex ready, guys... I might be exaggerating about her...hahhahah)
ta da...presenting Miss Laiqa...

She's going to be four soon.

So, time think twice... or you'll be presented with a stack of my kids photos...muahahhahahha...

Travel here, travel there...

Have you come across an application that let you mark/pin the places you have been to on a world map?

It's a good application, if not great. It shows you the world map, and what you have to do, just pin (mark) the places you have been to.
The question that arise is, what is the purpose of this to be link in your blog or homepage? For your own knowledge (u could put that in your journal)? Your friends keep asking about the places that you have been to, and you get tired of answering? Or you simply link it there without knowing the purpose? You didn't realise it was there? Or is it showing off? ahhahahh
Anyway, I am sure you have your purpose, and I respect that. May be it has something to do with your life , or the entry you are posting, etc.
May be I envy you who travel a lot. I do entitle to be jealous, don't I. It's either your job need you to travel or you inherited such wealth that makes travelling is second to nothing.
If I pin the map, there would be only a few dots here and there. Hhahha, so, toss the map. Don't need them.
As for now, let just say I am travelling extensively...through the travel channel. ( pathetic)

Anyway, the gist of this entry is- I am jealous with Mr AB who are travelling extensively all over the world.
So, AB, you better snap as much photos, buy me something from there, and tell me the place is not that great as it sounds. I mean, this time, it's just Goa...what could be great in Goa, other than the picturesque scenery, white sandy beaches, good weather, cheap food and nice hotels. And stop staring at the bikini babes!

Interview with the Vampire (ooopps...NO)

I was being interviewed by the adorable HLiza, in JANUARY. Yup, you read it correct, January. And I only complete it now. Actually I did answer some of it, but then I've delayed posting it, until march. My bad.

1. You're a medical doctor by profession. What makes you quit the job? Do you see yourself returning back to that field at some point of your life and if yes, when?

My husband forced me to quit.
Hahhahah...just kidding. Many of you must have said, 'how terrible is her husband'.
Well, in fact, he's a saint (almost! because he did make mistakes too that make me feel like strangling him hehheh). He gave me total freedom, but he did give me his point of view.
Hmm..I didn't call it 'quit' though. Because for me once you are a doctor, you will always be. I just resigned from the goverment.
I am always in the field. I give advices, consultations, etc. It just I did not return back to working the whole day in a hospital. My heart is always in this field. It's always my passion, my ambition from the moment I knew what the meaning of 'ambition' is. Only to be taken aback by the fact that doctors have to dedicate their whole life to work. I used to spend most of the time at work than at home. Home was only a place to sleep. Yup, really.
I have my other reasons too, but, I'll blog about it next time, may be.

2. What 3 principles of life that you live by?

i. do unto others as you would like others do unto you
ii. live life with no prejudice
iii. Life is full of choices, why force yourself to do things that is against your heart desire.

3. Is there any period or era in your life that you wish you could change? Why?

My teenage years. I so hating it. I think I was extremely ugly then, with all the bad decision. I pick the wrong dress, wrong shoes, wrong glasses. Even the wrong words when I talk.
I think I might have been a geek. I read books all the time, while my classmates play netball or enjoying the days socialising.
My dad was extremely protective too.
I don't even have many photos of me during those years.

4. What are your traits that you wish your kids will inherit and what are the ones that you really really really wish they won't?

Inherit:- Smart, kind hearted (I think I am)
Wont inherit:- impatience, stubborness

5. Name one thing that you feel you're most talented at and how does that talent shape your life so far?

I am soo good in window shopping. I can spend the whole day doing it, but I can only spend 30minutes jogging and get bored.
This talent has make me slim even after 3kids. Hahhahhahhah

Seriously, I have no idea what my talent is.
