Life: Weight

Well, I set a goal that I believe it should be easily achived by the end of April.
It was set a month ago in my home calendar.
I positively belived that I could do it coz I had done it before.
And now 6 more days to go and I come to realize that I was far away from that goal.
Instead of losing 2kg, I AM now GAIN 2kg.

I know the root cause.
I've been taking naps after lunch almost everyday.
I've been telling myself not to fall asleep, but Zara wont take her nap until I do.
Sometimes, I sleep before her. Haahahahaha

The only way to balance the 'guilty' nap is by doing exercise more
I try to go to corec often at nite. (After Zara asleep)
If not, I will just jog around the neighbourhood alone. (When hubby is willing to take care of Zara)

Today, I wont be alone anymore.
Zara will be my jogging buddy onwards.
Coz I just bought a jogger stroller :) at garrage sale today!
Love it! I can jog anytime I want without worrying who is going to take care of Zara.

Now, we have 3 strollers at home.
And they are not fully utilized (mind you, i'm an industrial engineer. i need everything to be optimized).
Should I get rid the old one?

Life: My new handbag

I bought a tote yesterday from TJMAXX.

Me: Cantik tak? Lawa kan if bawak gi office (berangan di kala naik lrt bersama handbag baru)
Hubby: Banyak nya bag nak pakai?
Me: Mane ade banyak! dulu mase undergrad lagi banyak. ni ade 3 je.
Hubby: Habis tu nak pakai 3 skali ke? Satu sling bag, satu baby bag, satu tote...
Me: Alaaaaaaaaaaaaa tak kan asyik nak pakai bag same? (nada sedih sbb mcm kene return kan balik je, but i love the design)

Yes, I only have 3 bags in total now and I always carry my sling bag and baby bag along (it is a must). I used to have more than 10 handbags while I was in undergrad.
I have became more practical person since I have Zara. No more small hobo or clutch. Coz it's definitely no no for mommy!
I can say all the bags I'm having now is functional because they suit the purpose.
Neither for glitters nor glamorous .

My baby bag is light. That's good coz I can fill it up with Zara's stuff, camera (mind you, the heavy dslr), video camera, food and sometimes Zara's toys! You can imagine how heavy it is!
Since the baby bag is usually full and messy, I could not find my phone whenever I dump it in the bag.
So, I decided to get myself a sling bag where I can place my phone and purse in it. It's practical right? Sling bag is the best coz it is small and I will not easily leave them behind ( i always forget most of the thing when i'm out alone with Zara).

Now, I'm not sure whether I should keep the new handbag or let it go.

If anyone interested of having this bag, I will let it go for RM150.

Saya dah awak

When addressing my hubby in front of others, I would call him hubby or bi (in short terms) and and he calls me wifey.
And the rest of the conversation will be as 'saya' and 'awak'.
We have been using the terms since we are together back then.
I know it sounds so high school..but it sticks in the blood. I could not change it, so do him.
We are so accustom to it.
However, recently, Zara has picked up the terms easily.
She starts to adress us AWAK!
The other day, while I was driving..she shouted from the back of her seat.. AWAK!!and kept babling..
Another incident, she just woke up and heard her dad in the living room, she yelled..AWAK..and dadddyyy...
Oh my, what should we do?
Should we start calling each other mommy and daddy so that Zara knows the right words to address us!!!
I dont know, but hubby heard in one of the ceramah, telling us not to call each other by mommy and puzzles me a bit.. is it true? what is the reason behind it?
Can someone tell me the reasons please?
