I still owe alai rayyan's birthday celebration post but am too lazy to switch on my lappy nowadays..plus i still havent got the pics from his uncle gee..was too busy entertaining alai's moodiness that i didnt took any pics myself..
So u might wonder about my random headline :) Read an article in the weekend bb last sat about a 2.5 years old girl who's addicted to iphone & i was just worried about exactly the same thing. I could hardly get hold on my phone now since alai is hogging it all the time. It all began when I started downloading all these educational stuffs to distract him when i need to and indeed it works wonder! So i put all his stuffs in one page so that it would be easier for me to find it..it didnt took alai a long time to learn how to unlock my phone and scrolling to his page! After a while he started to get bored of his own page and start scrolling to the other pages exploring for others that might interest him. Now, everytime he sees me with the iphone, he would grab it away & he even knows how to reject calls and exit any incoming texts (so ppl, the delay in responding of your smses is definitely not my fault hehe).
What worries me is, iphone is the first thing he looks for when he wakes up & it seems to be the one that could put him to sleep..oh & the onnoconno is also in my iphone. At first i didnt understand when he said onnoconno repeatedly when he woke up. & one day he just took my iphone & start scrolling to mxtube, switch on video and played pocoyo! & the mxtube is not even on his page! So now i know onnoconno means pocoyo hehe..oh yeah alai has now beginning to learn and says few words other then his usual kalakalak or kayakaya or gilagila :) ..like if we asked whats his name is he would say 'ayieee'..& he knows ball, banana and other simple stuffs..i guess he wanted to be able to talk before the baby comes so he could complains if we dont give him enough attentions then hehe..
& alai's lullaby now is kelly clarkson's song - already gone (which is again in the iphone). I tried downloading a proper lullaby songs for baby but he would just switch it to kelly clarkson again and i have to play it repeatedly until he falls asleep.. It does make my life easier though.. Now i can schedule his nap & bed time..no matter what he's doing at that moment, i just need to switch on that song & he would immediately crawl up on bed and lie down beside me...oh how i love my iphone! Hehe but again it can gets quite worrying...what do you guys think? Is it safe to just let your baby gets addicted to all this technologies.. Would it actually hinder him from gaining other skills i.e socialising & human interactions or how about his eyesights? Im loving how i can use my iphone as a distraction tool & even thinking of buying him his own itouch but again will there be consequenses in the future?
Went for the monthly pre-natal checked up just now and apparently I' ve gained 4.5 kg within this 1 mth period...i blamed it on the raya festivals + fruits season..been having durianss, tarap and tibadak almost everyday! Now i have to watch my diet..Dr advised to take low carbs item and no sweets..yikess! It would be hard for me not to esp now my liur is more to all the sweet stuffs.To make things worse, my hb level dropped again from 9.9 to 9.6. Its not surprising tho since i also suffered from anemic on my 1st pregnancy..i guess i have to be more consistent in taking my vitamins.
Alai is currently with my mil in keriam while i'm in lamunin doing my part time job - nursing my younger brother. Its only been 2 hours being away from him but i couldn't help feeling guilty and i miss him a lot. I guess being a full-time mother makes you become very attached to your baby. Wonder how would it feels like to leave your babies from 8-5 everyday for work...if i think about it...i would rather stay at home and spend my precious time with my little bubs. If only government could classified housewives as a job..after all children that grew up with enough love and attentions would turn out to be better citizens for the country isn't it? :) if only....
Yup..been a while since i last blogged..infact i've even forgotten my blogger p/w that i had to reset it! I know a lot of you are aware already but to those who are not..i am currently 6.5 months pregnant! I've successfully graduated end of July and been back in Brunei eversince. And No i am not employed yet...been doing my jobhunting but no luck so far. Well, to be honest i didnt do much job hunting..i applied to 3 places only and i'm done with the recruiting processes for all 3. So far, got declined by 2 which left me with 1 which i have the least confidence in getting...so i guess i would remain jobless till i deliver.
So at the moment...besides being not a very good housewife, i'm also helping my mum in taking care of my youngest brother who you all might recalled was involved in a car accident last year and was suffering a serious brain injuries. Alhamdulillah..he's recovering slowly..he can talk like normal people now and he can move his right hand. He could even write text msgs using that one hand! As the Dr confirmed that he's not paralyse, we're hoping he could get on his two feet eventually..So people please pray for him yeah...
Oh and before i forget...tonight Alai Rayyan finally call me Mama like he means it! I hope he would be able to talk soon which i think he actually knows how to but refuse to show us..just like last night..He was counting 1-5 and yesss a proper 1-5..and i asked him to repeat to me which he did...thennnnn i called his abah and asked him to listen..So there goes Alai saying oneee... choooo..but then he realised his dad was listening so he began saying kalak kalak kalakk (yup his fav phrase!) instead of saying chee (3)... Hehe funny isn't it? Which makes me conclude ~ my baby is so shy in showing off his pemandainess :)
Other than that..there's nothing much to write about my life..will try to update more frequently from now on...insyaAllah...
Here I am, supposedly buzy with all my revisions for this coming mid-semester exams but I can't seems to focus or even begin at all! I couldn't help but feel a vast of excitement as Hubby and Alai Rayyan will be paying a visit very soon! I know I should be studying so I could spend more quality time with them and I know I would regret if I don't BUT I just don't know how to start!
Oh crap, I'm feeling sleepy now..So what should I write about? Eversince Alai Rayyan is no longer here, it feels like there's is nothing significant in my life that I could share the details around. Writing about myself is not appealing at all...I guess people are right when they said that this blog is mostly about Alai Rayyyan hehe...Oh God...my eyes feel so heavy...sigh...I guess I'll take a nap for a bit and will continue this random post later...hehehe..anyong haseyo!

Wow....Its been more then 4 months since I last update this blog...most of it was because I've been busy spending time with hubby and my family in Brunei. Being in long distance relationship really made u appreciate your partner more...I just wish I didnt have to come back here...and as u all might know already..I'm now all alone, without Alai Rayyan by my side :'( Its been one month now..and God knows how much I miss my lil angel. (I feel like crying already...God! Im not good with expressing myself..thats why I did not post anything up to now...otherwise I'll ended up all being all emotional).
Moving onnn.....lets change the topic before these tears start rolling down...so much had happened the last few months. My older brother got married, Ikin got married, Lyssa and myself had our mandi belawat, and there's my anniversary with hubby - which we captured by doing photoshoots on that day :) We went for KK trip with a bunch of friends just before I left for Oz and it was fun.
Some photos for all the above events:
