Money Matters Part 2

Assalammualaikum,

It has been over a year since my last post on this matter. Alhamdulillah.. I now have a career and I am not planning to 'move' yet. I kinda like what I am doing now. ;)

Dear Husband and I have been discussing about "house" for the past couple of weeks. He has his plans and I do too, which sadly to say it's not the same. Haha! But we have slowly figure things out and slowly plan our future.


Our first step to a better family financial planning is to take Takaful Dream House, insya Allah we will start investing in August. We have decided to take 15 years maturity. Hence, while waiting for our own house, we will be renting Government house by next year. My family is multiplying!! Hehehe ;)

I believe it is a wise decision to start early investing in Takaful Dream House (or any other investments) while you are still young especially when you're planning to have your own house by taking less amount of loan but taking a lot of time. As what dear Husband said, instead of us paying high interest now for taking out loan, why not let the interest pays us first. I was reluctant to his idea at first but seems like it's a better option for now. :))

And for Baby Iqbal second birthday, we will take Takaful Education for him apart from saving at his account in TAIB. Alhamdulillah we can do it on monthly basis now. Insya Allah, Baby no.2 will have his/her own account too when he/she is one month old just like Baby Iqbal and his/her takaful when Baby no.2 reaches two years old.

I am really grateful with our condition now and thankful that we manage to save and 'splurge' sometimes at the same time these days. And I even can help my parents and siblings too. :DD

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…
