Being a SAHM

not exactly, but you get the idea

It has been over a year since I graduated with my First Degree and have not 'found' a single career. They say these unemployed people are being choosy for wanting to work with the public sector only and not with the private sector nor start own business. I wish those people know that some people are not lucky.

We had a few debates among my family members asking me to work as soon as possible. Some even suggested me to apply as a teacher, no offence to all teachers out there, but I know myself that I am not capable of being a teacher. I have been applying for career within this period, been going to written tests and interviews but still here I am at home taking care of my baby.

I have discussed this matter with DH. We have agreed that I will stay at home until Dad retires this November. We do not want to have maid to take care of our baby hence we came to this decision. I am still applying for career when the post advertised are something that I have interest to do and not only it can improve myself but also, allow me to contribute to our country. No, I am not being choosy but I want to start a career for the next 35 years of my life (Insya Allah!) not a job. Yes, I have applied both to public and private sectors.

I am enjoying my time at home now with my baby. There is only me-time when he is asleep, that is for sure but I do not mind. I can do the house chores when I have my other siblings at home so they can look after Baby while I do the chores. I don't feel comfortable leaving him out of my sight even when he is asleep hence making me difficult to do the house chores. I'm glad that I am still living with my parents, they have been helping me a lot since.

We have not decided that I will forever be a SAHM, this is just for temporary - until Dad retires at least. If I manage to start a career before he retires then I hope I can place Baby in a daycare - hoping daycare will be available at workplace soon. I am constantly worrying about a lot of things, sometimes I can just be over-thinking about everything. DH has always been really kind and patient - I am really thankful that he is my lifetime companion. ILY!

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
