while watching the man i love do all the work..

Am currently at our rental house in kota damansara.

All our stuff have been moved yesterday to our new home.

Today hubs wanted to clean the house b4 we return the key to the owner.

I helped sweep the floor. And did a little bit of mopping but that was it.

hubs didn't let me do anything else. He even yelled at me for removing something heavy. Terkejut tu yg terjerit tu..hehehe..

Now I'm sitting on the floor watching him do all the work..actually he didn't want to bring me but I insisted. ;p

Somehow I feel sad. Looking at this empty house.

Although its not ours, but this is our first house as a married couple.

We spent our first year together here.

All my first wifely duty i did here.

All the memories..


Ah well...we've got so many more years together..insyaAllah..

We'll just make more sweet memories in our new home.. ;)

DIY : Baby blanket (by request)

today I made this.

i promised my reader to show how I make the baby it goes..

[sorry because the pictures are blur..took using my phone camera..kenot find where mr hubs put the memory card...just hope you guys understand my writings... ;p]

so firstly, here's the patern i did for my blanket. you can always mix n match and change according to ur preference.

what you will need

for the middle part: 6" x 6" cotton = 35 pieces (mix colours according to your patern)
borders: 34" x 5 " cotton = 2 pieces
44" x 5" cotton = 2 pieces (colour according to patern)
back: 44" x 34" = 1 piece
Sewing machine (you could hand sew, but will take longer time to finish lorr)
pins (to secure you pieces when you sew)

** the printed cotton = rm29/3 meters from ikea (enuf for blanket, bedsheet, pillow n bloster case)
red and yellow plain cotton = rm3/meter from Kamdar
red plain flannel = rm4.50/meter from Kamdar

1. cut all the pieces.

2. sew the 6"x6" together according to your patern using 1/2" seam allowance.

closer image after all the 6"x6" are sewn together.

3. sew the border to the finish body. again using 1/2" seam allowance.

4. fold and make a triangle at every edge. secure with pin.

5. cut excess after securing the edges.

6. place the finish front piece with the back piece together. right side together.

7. secure with pins.

8. sew the 2 pieces together. again with 1/2" seam allowance.

sew all 4 edges. make sure leave 4" opening to turn the blanket inside out.

9. turn the blanket inside out and sew the opening by hand.

10. top stitch the angle and around the border.

something like this.

and voila!!! your blanket is done!!!! ready for your little precious to use. but do remember to wash first yee!! ;)

very the simple right?

happy trying!!

2 dinner. 2 places. 2 themes. 1 birthday.

me and hubs both had our company dinner last Saturday.

His at Sunway Hotel. Mine at Putrajaya.

His theme was Rock. Mine was Masquerade.

Which one did we go?

He went ti his. I went to mine.


He was on the commitee, so obviously he was obligated to go to his.

I on the other hand, dari dulu lagi wanted so much to go to a Masquerade theme dinner.

So, we both were single for the night ! huhu~~ ~~

me n my neighbour, fifah

with my ex team mates ~~

we were early..

the dinner was so-so, didnt really enjoy it much...only the live band...had the chance to dance a!! i love dancing, but i dont go this is the place where i can show my moves~~ hahaha... tapi selang2 3-4 lagu laaa...then dok lepak tepi jer...holding my belly... ;p

when hubs came back with pictures..i kinda regretted going to mine..sbb nampak happening giler..his bos was super sporting...with the wig, and the tattoo skin sock, the makeup...dasyat!!! then ade red carpet, with a backdrop for cam-whoring...bestttt!!!!!... no pictures tho... hubs tak kasik..huhu...

but well..whats done is done... I got a cooler doorgift tho...
