The Best of 2012


Today is the end of 2012! How time flies! I must say, the highlight for this year has got to be being a first time mom overall. From breastfeeding, to cloth diapering, to making homemade baby food and best of all, watching my baby grow up every single day. Alhamdulillah! I could not ask for more blessings than these.

There are ups and downs for the past one year but with my kind, loving and supportive husband and families, I managed to get through. Patience is definitely what I always struggle with and I'm glad, I have learned being more patient and less grumpy. :P There are times when we get 'the look' from people when we are out, like we are too young to have a baby. *lol* This is always funny and annoying sometimes! We've past age 25 already people~


Early this year, Dear Husband and I celebrated our 1st Wedding Anniversary at Li Gong, Empire Hotel. We also enjoyed our Ramadhan and Syawal more this year with Baby Iqbal and my sister got hitched before that in June. Seeing Baby Iqbal in his baju melayu always put smiles on our face. Adorably cute!!! We also had our Majlis Mandi Belawat dan Berdikir just about two weeks before we celebrated Baby Iqbal Pororo-themed 1st Birthday. We also made our first trip to Miri with Baby Iqbal for Dad's birthday celebration. We also had friend gatherings throughout the year too - with Iman's friends, my best friends and my Uni friends.


For this, it is definitely in the beauty department - skincare and makeups. I rediscovered my long lost love for skincare and makeups that I had few years ago and now, I even became more adventurous in trying out new things this year. I found that some works, and some did not. Being me, once I found something that works I would stick to it for the longest time until I have another "rediscoveries". :P Hehe.. I'll try to get the things I have in my wishlists first and work it out from there if I need? want? more.

On the other hands, for handbags and shoes, I have few things that have been on top of my list for the past years (this deserves another post, I will work on it!). And, I have also added few more this year. :P Michael Kors. Coach. Prada. to name a few.

I guess that's about it. Baby Iqbal and I had been having fever since last Wednesday and Iqbal's condition worsen on Friday. But Alhamdulillah.. We both are getting better already. Yay!

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…
