D'yana Bangi Outlet Opening 2015

D'yana, best known as - "Your Muslimah Fashion Specialist", recently opened a new outlet which happens to be their sixth outlet to date! Customers started queuing as early as 6am to grab the free D'yana Jubah and D'yana Shawl coupon offer which was given to the first 100 lucky customers! I'm green with envy!

 Just look at those happy faces!

D'yana jubah emphasizes on modest muslimah wear that cares for women's aurah. Their line of jubahs are loose and not transparent, making it syariah compliant which is a major concern for it's owner, Pn.Ira Abdullah and her husband. They also have a comfortable and high quality fabric selection which includes exquisite lace and sequin details. These details have become a huge hit with D'yana lovers!

Oh and good news ladies! D'yana jubahs are super affordable, priced between RM149 to RM249. Crazy right? Just look at the details on the jubah. Not to mention, their boutique also offers beautiful lace shawls and even jubahs for kids. Get excited mommies!:D

After their opening in Bangi Sentral, they are planning to open two more boutiques, one in Kota Bharu and one in Pasir Tumboh so that everyone can get their hands on D'yana juabhs!

That Annoying Thing Husbands Do

Before I got married people told me that I will eventually find out things about my partner that I would've never thought of. You know, bad habits. I have a ton of bad habits too I'm not gonna lie, but there's this one habit my husband does that drives me crayzayhh. I'm pretty sure a lot of husbands do this too.

You know how men carry so little when they go out as compared to women who have a Marry Poppin bag full of essentials they can't live without. Guys usually just have a wallet and handphone which they carry in their pockets, right? That's great. I love that they're simple that way. Not like women who have a place for everything. A compartment for makeup, a compartment for safety pins, sunglasses, baby toys(if you have kids), phone, wallet..and the list goes on. More importantly..we have a place in our wallet for coins!!

OMG are men actually aware the existence of coins that they don't bother having space in their wallet to put their change? Every time I'm cleaning the house I find a coin here, a coin there, a coin in the corner, a coin under the carpet. It doesn't stop there. In the toilet, in the car. Amagaaaad. And don't get me started on laundry. You know you have coins in the washing machine when it makes a loud clickatty-clack sound. So every time I do the laundry I have to be extra careful at emptying his pockets before it goes into the washing machine.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has this problem? LOL. On the other hand, you wouldn't believe how much all the coins add up to after you've been picking them up and saving it into a jar/tin . One time I told my husband to go and cash in the coins at the bank. One tin of coins looked like maybe RM30 or so in exchange. But it actually added up to 4 times more! Imagine how much you can save in a year(or more) So maybe it's not a bad habit after all? Whatevs, it's still annoying.

Ps: I still love you hubbybi!:P

Till then!

I Chose My Kids

After I finished my studies, I happened to land a job at a private college as an architecture lecturer. I didn't plan on becoming a lecturer in the first place because I wanted to practice architecture and work at a firm. Only after I took the job I realized that I loved teaching! And I knew that if I worked at a firm things would be even tougher if I got married and had kids because of the workload and stress it comes with. So I decided to stick to teaching. 

Once I had Juhd(my first baby) working became quite hard for me as I couldn't quite focus at work. I kept thinking about my baby at home(even though my work place was just like 3 minutes away from home!) At that time my husband was the one who took care of Juhd while he was working from home(I know, wow right). I would get to see them during lunch break and even that wasn't good enough for me. I wasn't happy working anymore. I thought of all the precious moments of Juhd's first-everything that I might miss(first word, first roll over etc). And it broke my heart every time to see Juhd cry as I left for work in the morning.

So after I got pregnant with my second baby, I made a vow to quit my job of 4 years and be a SAWAHM(stay and work at home mom,yes I totally made that up) after I give birth. I just couldn't bear the thought of leaving my kids for work ever again. I want to be there for them every single moment as they grow. Because truth is, I only have one shot at motherhood. And I want to do it right. My kids are going to be this small only once. I will have plenty of time for work in the future when my kids are all grown up and independent. 

When I told my husband that I wanted to quit he couldn't be happier. He had always preferred that I stay at home from before we got married but it was always me who felt the need to develop a career. He was always supportive of my decisions regardless.

So here I am, working from home while I get to see my kids grow in front of my very eyes. Alhamdulillah. Words can't explain how contented I am with my life right now. I can spend my days teaching and educating my kids just like my own mom used to(I never went to kindergarden/pre-school). I get to wake up every morning only to worry about entertaining my kids and what would be our menu for the day, now that I cook everyday bahaha!*domestic goddess alert!* I love being a SAWAHN. I finally feel like a supermom. Its like a normal mom, only awesome-er!

Yes, that's Qomar's head and Juhd's hand in the frame :D

Motherhood : Expectation Vs. Reality

Honestly for me, going through motherhood the first time with Juhd was quite a struggle, especially the first month! Everything was hard the first time; learning to breastfeed, learning what to do when Juhd wouldn't stop crying, learning that I wouldn't be getting proper sleep for the next 1 or 2 years, and a whole bunch of other stuff! But as months passed everything definitely got easier and easier, Alhamdulillah. It was just a matter of getting used to a new life schedule.

After giving birth for the second time with Qomar, everything really did get easier(handling only Qomar that is) But handling TWO small human beings at once was a whole different story. Luckily I have Fiq by my side and he is wonderful with the kids. But when he's working and not around to help, things can be a little overwhelming.

Imagine having spent half an hour on breastfeeding Qomar, then another half and hour putting her to sleep only to be waken up by her big brother throwing toys to the wall or stomping on the table. -_-

And then there's the guilt of feeling like I'm not spending enough time with Juhd. It does get me all emotional because Juhd is still small and needs my attention. I really do miss spending more time with him and trying my best to make sure he doesn't feel left out because of the new addition to our little family.

Me being a mother means balancing between maintaining a clean house, getting all chores done, and keeping the kids happy and entertained while keeping my sanity

I am a blogger and part of my job requires me to promote clothes, events, services etc. Before I had kids, taking a simple OOTD photo was no biggie. I could take my own sweet time, take as many shots as I pleased(camera memory card constantly full with my pics) that used to really annoy Fiq bahahaha.

But after having kids, to take a decent OOTD photo requires a lot of strategizing. Because one moment Qomar is crying, then the next Juhd throws a tantrum or needs a diaper change. By the time they're both asleep(which is close to impossible during the day) then only I can finally get that OOTD shot(also if nothing was spilled on my tudung/baju). So yeahh everything really does require extra effort when you have kids.

Case in point:
I was promoting someone's makeup services. In the left photo which I posted you will see a picture of me calmly smiling and control-ayu-malu-malu-beruang. But In reality what I was doing is calming a crying Qomar.

See what I mean? Getting a good OOTD shot isn't that easy when you have your kid photobombing you all the time. So whoever says my outfit shots are still nice even after two kids, please know that there is a lot that goes behind it! LOL

If you're expecting, keep calm and don't freak out. Motherhood is totally awesome no matter how tired or how much you need to multi-task at one time. There is so much to look forward to when you have a child. I love being a mother more than anything in the whole wide world. And you know what they say..If you ain't tired, you ain't doin' it right!

P/s: I love my kids.

 Till then!
