It finally hit me....the idle bug....heheheh...i've been out of job for almost 4 months now..(not really out of job...more like a year long vacation)...been quite a milestone for me though...gave birth to my beautiful son, Hassan Naufal, confinement for 2 months, hop on the next flight to Edinburgh with my kids and mom, dad comes along and join us, did some touring around here, hang out with my family, waiting for my sisz Nawal to come and visit us.....and.......now comes the silent part....i do nothing....hehehehe....except being a full time housewife...a nanny, kitchen officer, floor engineer, bed warmer, baby doctor, blogger, financial officer, lover and ebay bidder....hahahah...its a dirty job, but somebody got to do it...did i say i missed my job?? maybe....hahaha...i actually dreamed about doing my office work..hahahaha..how pathetic was that?..well...i still got eleven months to go before i return to the usual office life...bet i'm gonna be transferred to another office by the time i got back...its about time for a change anyway....now back to my idle bug issues....i also think that i'm missing Malaysia, missing my siblings and their antics, friends back home, friends at office and even the foods over there ( i didnt say i missed my job, rite??)....huh...like my sisz once said; an idle mind is a devil's playground.....most of the time i got things to do around the house or around town...since its noe Malaysia, and its winter time...so the daytime are shorter and theres isnt much of fun (define fun = ade laaaa) stuff to do...but sumtimes i do feel like i'm not really doing anything now...what am i suppose to do anyway??..hehehehe....takkan la nak p sightseeing hari2 ?? bankrap la beb....hehehe....well, no decision yet about what i'm really doing here, so, i'll just keep it all moving on a daily basis..hahaha...bukannya tak tahu nak buat ape, originally i applied for a one year leave with the excuse to accompany my husband and take care of my kids (the whole family bonding stuff, my boss once gave me that idea) ....hehehe...and that is exactly what i do rite now...am i not fit to be a fulltime mom? why am i too worried bout this?...i dont know yet...still trying to...is it that difficult to lepak all the time, watch my kids grow and nurture them with love, not to think bout office stuff, eat and sleep and jalan2 when you want and go dating macam muda2 dulu with dearest hubby ...does it sound difficult to do ??.......i'll update more later when i finally figure it out..maybe its the best opportunity given by Allah SWT for me to reflect on my life and what i've been doing all this while...a chance to look back, learn and move forward with life...at least that is what i could come up with at this moment...cheers all !! ...

"Nooo...mak tak tipu...betul snow..."..mak actually said that befor i finally decided to have a look at the windows, its been a couple of times mom did that to me, and there's no snow..hehehe...guess i wanted it so bad, they all start to make fun of me..hehehe..it was 19 january 2009 when it finally happened....haaahahahaah...it was one of my reasons why i left my job for a year...lame though, but i loved it.......nothing magical nor glamorous...i just wanted to play with the snow!!!...hahahahahah.... and i got it...i'm thankful that i'm able to share this wonderful experience with my family; my children, hubby, mom and dad...i wished my siblings and the rest of kajang clan could be here..missed them a lot...hahaha...just typical me, being all quizzy and mushy inside..we danced and jumped and run (not really dancing lah..) in the snow...took photos and just stare at the window untill it almost stopped snowing..one of the millions wonder of Allah s.w.t creations...MasyaAllah...reminds me back then during christmas season, when everyone here was hoping for it to snow...but it didn't...pity them..hehehe...people here didnt fancy snow that much though, coz its the aftermath is not something u wanna see...when it snowed, roads become slippery with the ice, then the wind plus snow makes it difficult to drive etc....then after the ice started to melt, it all become slushy and black...eiii..geli aku...heheehhe....and all the icy thingy kinda got me to miss ABC and cendol at home...what else i missed back home? plenty...its the life i had....but once we decide to move on and make changes, we need to learn to adopt to the changes and embrace it...hope i got it all right...InsyaAllah...
Been a while again since my last entry...a lot had been going on my mind, but haven't got the time (or maybe enuff effort??) to do the writing....hehehe...anyway....its new year, gregorian or hijrah...means new resolution...i normally make new resolutions every year...but this year, i decided to recycle a few of my old ones...hehahaha..seems likely they're easier to compile all the resolutions then complying to any of it..let's not try to wonder what are my resolutions...it may make u to raise ur eyebrows and cause unnecessary wrinkles..hehehe....
i'm already here for almost 6 weeks and we've been visiting few places around edinbvrgh (they pronounce it as 'Ae-din-bregh''.seen beautiful historical sites, car boot sales and mall with bargains.....but we cant go anywhere far coz its still winter..with freezing temperatures and ghastly wind going around....most of the time we're indoor....eating (creepy thought...) but we had good food..i mean great food !! since most of the time was my mom's cooking...heheheheh...(soo sorry sisz Billa and bro Ama !!for borrowing mak and abah for a few months)...mak and abah seems to have plenty of time to relax and nothing much to bother about...at least that how i see it..hehehehe...i know they really REALLY really missed home and everyone in Kajang (Especially Nabilla - hows the food there ? ur studies? i know u do great...(hang on a bit more,sisz)..hehehe..Amar - got a job alrealdy?? Ame - are u eating alright?, Aina - what are u up to now? Zaid - how tall r u? Along n Kak Long - is the house under control? hehehehe..and a bunch of question...well, they'll be back home soon..
during the new year's eve, me and ayang planned to go and see the Hogmanay Celebration .. its the nu yerr eve'celebration in Edinburgh...its one of the many celcbrations they have here ...edinburgh is known for its long list of celebrations and festivals..i heard it was a fun and colourful event in below freezing temperature..but, that night Hassan got tummy ache, so he cried and refused feeding for almost 5 hours..i almost got into my panic mode....luckily Ayang and mom are cool...finally his tummy ache resides.., but its past midnite..hehehe..so, happy new year !!
