Home Maker

I thought I would have ample time to blog since I am now 'working part time' from home, and am a fulltime Home Maker.


Boy was I wrong.
It has been almost a month since the last day of me working in the corporate world. 28 days to be exact.
and only now that I can blog.
So how is my life? Hectic.

Robber's Attempt

This is a real story. I need to share this for the benefit of all. (dramatic tak bunyi?)
Jokes aside, one of our colleagues went through this traumatic event that almost  cost her her car, or even her life.  but Alhamdulillah, she managed to survive.
Ms N went out with her friends who came from Perak to Seksyen 7 Shah Alam. She brought them to I-city for sightseeing etc. and it was about 11pm that they decided to head home.
Going out from I-City, in the car that Ms N was driving,  they were queing to make a U-turn to head home. Suddenly, an Indian man on a motorcycle came  and asked them to go out from the line and out of the car. Thankfully, they did not follow.Ii mean, seriously? Why would anybody?
So they proceed to make the u-turn and speed off.  However, the man was not putting on hold or lose hope. He pursued them and he was chasing them in his bike. 
They got scared. Really scared.  He started to show a long metal and waving it around. He was scaring them off. Ms N being behin…

My Kitchen Rules

i've posted something in my previous post on kitchens.
what i wanted etc for a new project.
and ive been quiet on it. 
since i am on medical leave, i can blog on this happily.
we moved in to our new house on January 2015.  the prev one was put to rent.  this was unexpected rezeki from Allah.  alhamdulillah, so many alhamdulillah.
initially, we wanted to sell it off. but my heart said no. not only that it has so many first memories and sentimental values, but i was thinking of my children and whether they can afford one in the future.  so we decided to keep it and let it become an asset. 
alhamdullilah, Allah eased our search for a good tenant. 
it has been about 8 months now and i am thankful to Allah for bringing this lovely couple to us.
so, for the kitchen project: Kitchen is the Heart of the Home
i have to make sure our kitchen is up to My standard as i will be spending a lot of time there. i cook a lot. well, daily basis.  so, having a good set up, ventilation, feel, etc is …

Our Home's Best Friend

Meet our new beloved robotic best friend:
We have a name for her. it's Livi.  Initially I proposed the name to be Vivi. you know, Vivi the Vacuum.  but Ayra kept on pronouncing Livi instead of Vivi. in the end, Livi it is.
so, Livi is a breed of Neato. coming from the species of Vacuum cleaner. but upgraded species, a robotic one that is. which makes her super duper cool.
I decided to buy her one fine day, after many many thinking and googling.  Googling for the best brand and most efficient one in the market of robotic vaccums.
there are many many robotic vacuums in the market. a lot! from the cheap ones to the most expensive ones. I have to look at many aspects before deciding that Livi the Neato Robotic Vaccum should be ours.
I had to invest in one. Reason: i'd go crazy looking at all the hairs on the floor, despite us cleaning or vacuuming after it in the morning. my hair is falling off like rain. im suprised i'm not bold! and we are super duper tired!
and the dust. w…

Project Kitchen

I am onto something big which i wont disclose just yet.
but, somewhere along the line, one of the components involved is the kitchen.
Kitchen is my fav place in a home. kitchen, is simply the heart of the house. because, it is the place where 'love' is prepared for the entire home.
it must be neat, clean, and homey.


I am currently drawn into a contemporary type of kitchen.  i'm done with modern type, which is what my current kitchen looks like; the typical 3G acrylic door. 
i have a red 3g acrylic door, with black concrete table top. 
what drives me really2 crazy, is I Cannot See Where The Ants Are!
Oh my. they annoy me to the max! i have come up to a battling stage with them where i'd go berserk trying to murder them all. Murder.  wahahahaha.  i am murdering all the ants.
i cannot see their steps on the table top cos they blend into it. all of a sudden, they are already making a long train chain on it. marching on and singing 'The Ants Go Marching One by One, Hur…
