This is not saying Goodbye...

I'll be spending more time over there at my new home, now that the new efx2blogs@Bloghoster is ready. The other refugees from the broken efx2 are slowly re-registering themselves there too. It's nice to see familiar faces avatars and usernames. The community is rebuilding itself. :)

I'll still be backing up my posts here, regardless. Tapi minta maaf banyak-banyak in advance ye, kalau terlambat moderate comments or terlewat reply to shouts in the chatbox. Agak 'challenging' sket nak maintain two blogs at one time, even for a stay-at-home-mommy. hee hee hee.

Y'all be good now.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Who would've thought, the most difficult thing that a SAHM has to deal with is time management?

*nervous*

Orang Ketiga

For the past err... *counts fingers* ...7+ years of my marriage, waking up for sahur has always been a twosome affair. Very minimal talking sebab ada orang tu nak bukak mata pun tak boleh, but we would, at the very least, talk about plans for the day.


Hari ni pukul berapa nak amik I?

Tak tau lagi. You nak balik pukul berapa?

By 5:15 lah. Nak gi tapau makanan untuk buka lagi.
Buka nanti nak makan apa?

Tak tau lagi. You nak makan apa?


Lebih kurang begitulah gist perbualan kami. No prizes for guessing who'd normally give the "Tak tau lagi" answers. You'd think he would be able to at least suggest what to eat. Hmmmph.

Anyways, this year, because the school is encouraging kids aged 6 to fast at least half a day, we have a 3rd person joining us for our pre-dawn meals. :)

The first sahur of this year's Ramadhan... she was very excited. It was her first experience. We woke her up at 5:00 AM and she was all excited and eager and was her usual chatty self. Her ongoing questions kept her Ayah awake.

I asked Sofea to take a nap before taking her bath but she refused. She chose to watch TV instead.

This is her, in the car, during the drive to school, on that first day of Ramadhan.


Kesian sungguh Princess ini... hee hee hee.



This is her, waiting for azan Maghrib after coming home from school.


'INFO' button on remote is used to check the current time


She managed to fast the entire day that first day, Alhamdulillah. :)

It's almost 9 days since the first day of Ramadhan, and so far she had missed 3 days of puasa. Two days because it was the weekend (and temptations in the form of an eating and drinking Aidiin, were hard to resist!), and one day because I did not hear the alarm go off, so nobody woke up for sahur, and her Ayah and I didn't want her to fast on a totally empty stomach.

I don't want to force her to fast full days since this is her first ever attempt at fasting, but I don't want to appear as a discouraging and unsupportive Ibu either.

I think the teachers at school promised the kids some special hadiah at the end of fasting month.

I just want to tell her that I am proud of her for trying.

The Return of the Blogging Mommy (Pt 2)

Hokay... it took me a whole day (and a half!) to figure out why the Commenting feature refused to become (re-)enabled. But it's fixed now, so yayy!! :D

I still have some links that need to be updated. And a few more to be added as well. I'll get to that by this weekend, hopefully.

The Shoutbox has been up for a few days, as you luvelies can see (and have 'Shout'-ed... hee hee).

Thanks to Madame Elisa, I've created an account on blogrolling.com, but have yet to check out the stuffs there.

I think I'll skip godek-ing this layout any further. My last godek-godek experience had me switching back and forth dunno how many times between the Classic Template to the New (Advanced) Template *blush*, and I had to redo the Fonts and Colors settings until I could almost hafal the hex codes for the colors. So... I'll just leave things as is, lah.

Oh, I did sign up at the new efx2blogs, but have yet to play around with the settings and whatnots, and to migrate (export?) my previous posts from the 'old' efx2 to the 'new' efx2. Not super-urgent to do, but it's comforting to know that the entries are there, waiting to get migrated. (Thanks Keith!)

I'll write more later... need to upload some pictures first.

New Chapter

I have always known that this day would come. I just never imagined it would be this soon.

Should I be ecstatic?
I am. 'Thankful' would probably be a better word.

Should I be sad?
I am. But only a teeny, tiny bit.

Should I be worried?
Of course I am. I know this is a BIG step to take.




I would be lying if I said that was/am not afraid... of what's to come, of the changes and the unknown.

But I am definitely hopeful.
Lagipun, Ramadhan is a good time to berhijrah, no?

Kalau tak cuba, tak tahu. And, InsyaAllah, rezeki tu ada...

Semoga segala kekusutanku terurai, akhirnya.

THIS IS IT!! No turning back now... :)

Berdoalah untuk saya, ya?

The Return of The Blogging Mommy

What's the matter with that other blog provider?




Wow!!! I can't believe I am actually writing an entry. FINALLY.

I see many of my friends have started to update here, in blogspot. *waves Hi to everyone*

This blog has always been my contingency blog, I'd cut entries from efx2, and paste them here as backup... as a 'just in case', macam sekarang ni lah. I'm glad I did.

The thing is I was too lazy to maintain two blogs, so I had disabled most of the features here. The Comments Box is one of them.
Ah well, since I'd probably be updating here from now on, I might as well start figuring out how things work. *blush*

I'll enable the commenting feature first.
Then I need to figure out how to put up a Shout Box. hee hee.
I'll be updating my outdated links after that.
I'll need someone to teach me how to make the RSS feed thingy work, too.
And obviously, this layout needs major godek-ing.

So, I'll see you when I see you, ya?

Selamat Menjalani Ibadah Puasa. :)
