Qiqah Little Amal

Salam Aidiladha to all muslims in the world!

today was the second day of aidiladha. we had the Aqiqah Day for little Amal. 
she is 6 months old now. and weigh approximately...8kg plus plus?
 whatever her weight is, my arm hurts whenever i carry her, or breastfeed her.

the little princess is now crawling all over the house.
she loves putting everything she sees in her mouth.
she is in the curious stage. and i am tired of saying no. 
when i put that thing, she finds some other things and starts to taste them. 

she likes tasting her own arms. and she would suck it sampai keluar bunyi sedut.
it is hillarious. she makes me want to taste it too.

the little princess of the day put on Ayra's dress. it was all about recycling.
as long as it looks new and the baby is cute, who's asking eh?
we recycled from head to toe, except the diaper.

she got a lot of angpows, and she was really eager to taste them too.
it's the way she shows her appreciation. lol

and she even had a unique gift: a bag full of sugar. 
well, actually, she got 6 packs of sugar all together. 6kilos in total.
so she is like 6 kilo sweeter today.

i havent received anything this unique. i havent encountered this before. 
my Mak said it's an orang kampung's tradition. but she herself does not know the symbolic meaning behind it. so, as usual i turn to Mr Google, whom we know has the answers to all. 
but whoa. Mr Google does not know it all after all!
i could not tfind the symbolic meaning of sugar. it was just a gesture show gratefulness.

and we are forever grateful for that. every little things matter.

dear Amal,
mommy hope you will the coolness of our eyes and our strength 

love u Amal.

Travel Halal: Disneyland Shanghai

Ni Hao! We just got back from a week holiday in Shanghai!

We went there with my mom, parents in law, sisters in law and her children. We were 12 altogether: 4 children, 1 baby and 7 adults. We booked out flights about a month before departure via AirAsia (what else?). December in Shanghai is winter time, so the weather was pretty cold with temperature ranging from 2-8C. That was really cold.

We bought a ground tour differently. Basically I was arranging the tentative, accommodation and guide. I found this tour guide from Mr Google: IslamiChina. They offer muslim friendly tour package across China, and also like ours, customized.

Our plan was to spend about 4 days in Shanghai and 3 days in Shaoxing. Initially Mom and I wanted to find cotton textile in Shaoxing, but that will be another story.

We reached Pudong airport around 1am. Our agent, Cici brought us to our Apartment in the city and our trip started off with Disneyland on the first day.  

I booked the apartment myself through Boo…

Muslimah Hair Salon. i Like!

ever since i got married, i have never got my hair cut by other than my husband. he doesn't let me go to sebarangan salon unless the salon only has female workers and no men are allowed in. i totally respect his wishes. because this is the right thing to do. he is protecting my honor and loyalty as Allah's servant. 
and because of that, i had been having no-so-great hair styles. sorry dear.. haha..  he said he doesn't mind the way i look and what not. but i do mind how i look in front of my own husband! because he is the only one that can see me totally, every little thing matters. what i look like, what i wear, etc . even he said he doesn't mind, i do. A LOT!
so, imagine my delight  when i discovered this muslimah salon in Shah Alam. Iris Salon & Spa.  located in Seksyen 7, near the tasik.
when i stepped into salon, i was already impressed.  the salon looked really nice.  dimmed light, zikir sounds, sophisticated interior, and most of all, friendly owner and styl…

Oil and vinegar

i finally found a Halal BalsamicVinegar!

i went to Setia City Mall to buy a broccoli to make fish and mashed potato with broccoli and tomato on the side, for buka puasa. whilst there, i strolled along the alley of vinegar and sauces.

Hubby and i have been looking for balsamic vinegar, to eat with bread and olive oil. the Italian style. or more correct, Rasulullah saw style.. yes, our beloved Prophet saw likes to eat bread with olive oil and vinegar. but the practice is more familiar among the Italians compared to the muslims in Malaysia. Rasulullah saw actually likes vinegar. there are many hadith that say this about him. i don't remember the exact phrase.. sorry..

we didn't know the type of vinegar used, but seeing the italians eat bread with balsamic, we guess it makes more sense than eating synthetic cooking vinegar! and also, balsamic is the only black vinegar that we know.

we managed to find balsamic before this but looking at the back of the bottle, the content said: g…
