wani e's raya 2018



assalamualaikum and hi, beautiful, crazy peeps! haha

would like to wish you all :

SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI!! maaf zahir and batin.
no worries, i've no prob with 'mat ri ye' or other hipster terms for raya.
yang penting, sampai maksud :DD

team raya rumah in laws kat banting kita tahun ni.
tapi sehari sebelum raya, sy ada mintak cuti, lepak shah alam dulu.

aidilfitri, genap seminggu abah pergi. al-Fatihah to him :)

team raya shah alam on first day of raya. photo cedok daripada ma bro. lolx


theme baju raya asal super asalnya; emerald green kot macam tu.
long story short, jadi dusty pink.
disebabkan kitorang pun shopping last minute,
dapat baju yang tak dusty pink tapi ada tone-tone pun jadilah :P

beraya di tangga rumah kampung. spot anaqi with his peace sign & sampin shark. spot ariana with her helo kitty tudung, RM10 beli kat pasar malam s19. haha

konsepnya moderate je.
tudung pun ai is beli last minute.
baju pun sama. sebab last minute, dapat la murah sikit.
nasib baik ada saiz :P


ye, anaqi tengah berjinak-jinak dengan peace sign tu. so ikutkan je lah :D



with in laws. ada kelabu, ada biru, ada hijau. tetiba ada pink sesat. lolx



terkejut 50 orang kanak-kanak datang rumah beraya be like.



photo yang decent sikit :P

raya kitorang memang hectic dari pagi sampai petang.
cuaca agak lit lit, orang kata.
tapi redah je la.
anaqi pun kepanasan ketidoran, ada sekali dia tantrum bak ang kat rumah orang. haha
bagi yang tak memahami, budak tantrum memang ko tak boleh buat apa.
biar je dia golek-golek menangis sampai reda.
atau bila dah kurang sikit, ko peluklah dia.
so husband angkut dia masuk kereta.


petang sambung beraya. tu yang budak-budak kepanasan, penat tu. nampak bariana tidur kat belakang. haha

was at in laws' for three days.
enjoyed masak-masak kat sana.
ai is memang suka masak. kahh
ada satu malam tu diorang masak ikan tiga rasa semua.
husband and i join sekaki goreng sayur and goreng ayam. yums

ada one time kitorang goreng cendawan sambil nyanyi lagu raya dengan mic kat dapur HAHA
layankan je la kitorang ni ye :P

malam ikan tiga rasa :D



breakfast on 2nd day; i cooked nasi goreng cili api (macam biasa, tak berapa nak pedas HAHA) and panaskan dendeng sedap mommy non. mak ayah pun puji cakap dendeng tu sedap. memang sedap kot!

oh.
hari pertama tu pun ada sate willy.. beli sehari sebelum tu kat shah alam.
then panaskan.
sate willy memang sedap.
recommend la kalau korang nak buat makan time raya.
harga sekarang, secucuk RM1.10.
ye mahal, tapi gemuk-gemuk sate dia and rempah serap.
so i've no complaint.
kuah je la tak nutty sangat. dia macam blend hancur sikit.
husband suka lagi yang berkacang-kacang macam tu.

cakap pasal kuah kacang ni,
ada macam-macam jenis kuah kacang kan.
sy suka yang biasa, nutty sikit, pedas sikit.
sy tak favor yang kadang orang masukkan udang kering ke apa tu.. rasa dah lain.
atau tetiba ada belacan ke. kan rasa lain.
tapi lain orang lain kegemaran kan.

baju raya 2nd day pun sy beli last minute.
asalnya ada 1 pasang baju je.
tapi teringatkan 2nd raya mesti pi sambung berjalan raya punya,
so beli 1 pasang lagi baju sehari sebelum raya tu.
mustard yellow.

photoshoot sekaliii.



eh dua kali!



eh tiga kali! lolx!

ibal, my BIL yang tolong snapkan gambar-gambar di atas.
tabah la ye ibal. hahaha


beraya buat macam rumah sendiri. sebalang dia je yang conquer. haha

so ahad tu dah petang sikit, balik putrajaya.
kemas-kemas rumah, basuh baju semua.
the next day sambung kemas, lepas tu gerak shah alam.
will be spending my week here in shah alam.. teman mama.

again, selamat hari raya semua.
minta maaf banyakkk juta-juta kalau sy ada salah dan silap.
halalkan makan dan minum semua.

have a pleasant raya!!

time ni lepak mamak sementara tunggu baju kering kat dobi. haha. malas nak sidai baju banyak. so basuh kat rumah, keringkan kat dobi layan diri.



tengah malam dok makan lagi kami :DD

meeting his Creator

assalamualaikum & hi everyone.

abah has passed on and meeting his Creator, last friday, 8 june 2018 (23 ramadan 1439H), at 2.20am.
it was a gloomy morning for us, but a beautiful journey for abah.

mama told us the day before (thursday), that abah's condition was worsen and he couldn't eat or sip anything anymore.
i went back to shah alam at night, slept at the living room on the couch with mama.
abah was also there on his bed.
faliq stayed at night, then went back to his home for a while.
around 2am, mama woke up to perform her ibadah (i was sleeping, thinking of waking up at 3).
suddenly i heard mama called me, so i went to the bedside with her.
she felt his chest and the heartbeat was getting slower.
we both recited surah al-mu'minun, 115 as told by an ustaz. i continued till the end ayat, 118.
right after the ayat, abah suddenly woke up (it was a miracle of al-Quran, really), and that was the time when we taught abah syahadah.
he didn't remember things because of his brain cancer,
but miraculously he woke up and his mouth was saying Allah, his forehead was sweaty and then he just passed calmly seconds after that.

mama was preparing abah.
i called faliq and harith (in penang).
they came right after.
harith reached shah alam on subuh.

i remembered the signs of husnul khatimah and i touched abah's forehead.
top of his forehead was still sweaty.
i was actually overflowing deep inside, it really did open my eyes.
yes i was sad, but the same time reda and happy for abah, for meeting Allah in the best way; on friday, the last 10 nights of ramadan.
the sky that morning was calm and cloudy. no sun, no rain either.
family, neighbours, masjid people and friends came to visit; at our house, at masjid and the Islamic cemetery.

i would like to express my heartfelt thank you to everyone with their doa, kind words and also to ones who'r visiting.
hanya Allah dapat membalasnya.



at the cemetery. many people came to visit. we as family, really thank you for the thought and kind gesture :')


the process was fast and smooth, since the masjid people were getting ready for solat jumaat afterwards.
i didn't know it's 'canggih' now, they have cranes to cover the grave (hole).
so it really took just a few minutes to finished.
alhamdulillah.




this is us on the third day, visiting in the morning. still gloomy on my face, but abaikanlah. lolx

abah was indeed a very kind and generous person.
he loved to go to masjid for jemaah, even when he's on a walking stick (tongkat).
he's a giver; he always give, donate and help his family and other people.
and most importantly, his faith to Allah is really high, even mama used to say "kita orang-orang biasa ni takkan faham." lolx
he used to told me about Allah and zat Allah, which i still try to understand until now.
he told us about qada' and qadar all the time, so this time, it's destined and we're letting abah go in a good way.

you will be missed very much, abah.
thank you for all the wonderful years with us :)
may Allah grant you Jannah and blessed you with his rahmat. aamiin.

juadah ramadan

assalamualaikum, bertemu lagi kita :P

macam biasa,
koleksi gambar-gambar makanan, mana yang rajin di-snap.
alhamdulillah, kebanyakan time sy masak aje.. 1 atau 2 lauk.
tapi ada juga time sy makan di luar/beli di luar, makan di rumah.

murtabak ayam, beli kat bazar putrajaya.

murtabak ni harga RM3 saja.
sedap! sebab generous daging ayam dan telur.
murtabak yang biasa kita makan, rasa bawang je banyak kan HAHA
murtabak ni sy 1st time pandang, nampak macam a sloppy murtabak.
bentuk sloppy tu la yang meyakinkan sy, murtabak ni mesti sedap.
so let's beli.
alhamdulillah, betul pulak tekaan :P


nasi beriyani gam, also from bazar ramadan putrajaya.

yang ni time beli tak dapat nak predict sedap ke tak,
sebab dah siap berbungkus nasi, ayam dan kuahnya.
rasa, tak cukup seasoning. ahaks
biasalah orang berpuasa masak kan.
tapi alhamdulillah, makan kenyang jugak :D


yang ni sedap ikut tekak, sebab sendiri masak. bahaha

kwey teow goreng, dimasak untuk sahur.
sebab asyik dok makan oats je.
sesekali nak jugak makan kwey teow kan :P
sy kadang suka jugak makan kwey teow kering macam ni.
lagi-lagi yang penang kwey teow. fuhhh! (bila nak gi penang lagi ni hahaha)


cendawan goreng tepung. goreng kat rumah. sedap!

suka pakai tepung ayam alagappas untuk goreng cendawan.
tapi sekarang bila cari, tak jumpa pulak kat mana-mana.
ai is kecewa.
tepung cap lain semua ada MSG. boo hoo!
(bukanlah sy tak pernah makan MSG, tapi seboleh-bolehnya nak cuba kurangkan. at least dalam masakan di rumah. yang kat luar tu mostly memang pakai MSG).


assam laksa aeon. hihi

assam laksa ni memang kalau datang aeon tu, semerbak dari jauh dah bau :P
nak tak nak, bungkuslah jugak untuk berbuka kat rumah HAHA
sedap woihhh terbayang-bayang ni.



lauk simple yang sedap; telur masak kicap. ahaks

tengok lauk simple,
faham-fahamlah ni mesti lauk sahur kahkah
tuan blog ni kan ala-ala menjaga waktu tidurnya, especially pagi tu kalau boleh nak kurangkan bertungkus lumus kat dapur :P
simple-simple pun, telur kicap tetap menjadi pilihan rakyat malaysia. best!


ayam kunyit ungkep style, cendawan tumis cili api & ayam goreng for the kids.



ayam goreng (air-fried) kicap dengan kentang DAN sayur bayam masak bening. sipi-sipi tu gambar mi maggi tomyam, husband punya. dia teringin nak makan maggi, katanya. :D


hari ni mungkin beli kat alamanda je kot,
sebab husband berbuka kat KL.. tuntutan kerja :D

selamat 10-malam-terakhir ramadan!
banyakkan beribadah, beramal and bersedekah, guys.

toodles! :)

AA's DIY dinosaur art project

hello, beautiful peeps!

just recently, AAs just finished working on their dinosaur art project for the school.
the project of course, involves us, the parents too. lolx
need to use recycled items, so here are the things that we need :

PAPER MACHE DINOSAUR

1. clean, used milk bottle

2. lotttsa newspaper

3. cardboards (recycled)

4. cellophane tape

5. PVA glue (white in color)

6. scissors/blade-knife

7. black marker

8. poster colors/brush/water


DIY STEPS :

first, we need to 'sculp' the dino.. i used the bottle as its body.
then, crumple the newspaper to make its head, feet and tail.
using a black marker, i drew its 'bony plates' (the ones on top of the dino) on a cardboard.
we're making a stegosaurus here.
then i cut out the bony plates and attached em to the body, using a tape.
same as the head, feet and tail. i used tape to joint em all.





next, tear the newspaper into smaller size to start making a paper mache.
just put the glue onto the body, and paste the newspaper there.
do this until the whole dino body is covered with the newspaper.




then put aside (in front of a fan.. lolx) and let the dino dries.




after the dino is drying up,
call the children for them to continue to next step; i.e coloring the dino :DD



we chose pink because green and brown are so mainstream :P

for the bony plates, we thought of rainbow colors.

full concentration. lolx



yes, ariana did most of the coloring. anaqi on the other hand, was in his own world, painting his paper. HAHA

let the color dries in front of a fan :D

and here's our dinosaur, after i covered the whole body with PVA glue and let it dry again.
why the PVA glue?
because it gives a nice glossy effect to the dino's body.. a non-expensive method ;)

taraa! a pink dino! :)

p/s: don't forget the eyes! you can buy googly eyes from art/DIY shop or like me, i drew a smily eyes, cut em and glued em to the dino's head. try it! :)

buka puasa di pullman, putrajaya



assalamualaikum & hi, peeps!

jumaat lepas kitorang berbuka puasa di hotel pullman, putrajaya.
setakat ni kebiasannya tiap-tiap tahun kitorang berbuka kat sini,
be it beli sendiri atau orang belanja :D
it's not just the food that i dig, but also the experience that comes with it.
sebab tu kot harga buffet ramadan dia boleh bikin pengsan. lolx

tahun ni, dapatlah beli dengan harga early bird.
some may think it's super expensive.
tapi pada sy, berbaloi dengan apa yang pullman sajikan untuk pengunjung.
a masked man on a walking stick, kat belakang kitorang.

tiap tahun yang pakai costume ni berubah-ubah.
tahun ni ada storm trooper, clowns dan belon-belon mereka, wanita dengan gaun kembang, orang berkaki panjang, orang dengan baju berlampu-lampu menaiki hover board dll lagi.
memang bestlah dan super meriah.
budak-budak pun enjoy, sebab diorang ada aktiviti kat sini.
banyak makanan yang diorang boleh makan.
so most of the time, AAs akan duduk makan di meja. bahaha
kalau berbuka tempat lain, makannya sikit sangat,
selebihnya berlari-lari atau kadang berenang atas lantai. HAHA
= kids-friendly. thumbs up!




spread?
macam tahun sudah, memang rambang mata tengok spread dia.
macam-macam ada and sedap pulak tu.
cuma tengok this year macam tak banyak choice lauk-pauk untuk nasi, just moderate je.
mereka lebihkan macam bakar-bakar, ada indian food, kwey teow, noodles, rojak.. bestlah.
sebab kalau nasi, hari-hari berbuka kat rumah tu pun makan nasi.
so at least for me, sy nak makan yang lain pulak.
the food selection was quite good.
sy makan pun tak sampai bloating, tp sy dapat try makanan yang saya suka & really enjoyed em :)


kambing bakarunnah.



ikan goreng (tepung). tapi diletakkan di rangka ikan goreng yang super huge ni. sedap!



our first plate. sy tak makan udang, sy hadap ketam je :P



us four, at our table.

kedudukan meja jugak adalah agak strategik.
belah kanan, seafood/sate bakar; kiri station kambing, ikan, beef, air semua tu.
depan, station durian.
sebelah bakar-bakar tu pentas live performance,
tengah-tengah berhampiran meja, terus tangga turun ke surau.
never been blessed with a strategic location like this.. alhamdulillah. hihi
yang jauh daripada kitorang adalah station dessert & nasi/mi.
tapi tak pe, sebab banyak ambik yang kat bakar-bakar tu. haha


kat belah dessert ada ais krim. banyak jugak choice dia. budak-budak sukalah ni. toppings dia jangan cakap, macam-macam jenis ada. cuma tak sempat snap. lolx



dessert area.



anaqi happy makan ais krim.



my eating plan, makan buah dulu lepas seteguk air roselle selasih.

lepas minum makan buah tu, solat maghrib dulu siap-siap.
sebab time tu tak ramai lagi kat surau.
orang tengah makan kat atas (surau bawah tanah).
once naik daripada surau, bila nak ambil makanan kat tempat bakar-bakar contohnya, tak ramai orang sangat sebab orang yang dok makan tadi, pi turun surau pulak.
agak selesalah nak beratur dan makan.


belakang ariana tu stesen durian. ada meja-meja kecik untuk orang makan durian (tak boleh makan tempat lain. dok situ je sebab takut ada pengunjung yang tak tahan bau).



sate pullman is da bomb! lovelove the kuah kacang. pekat, nutty dan sedap gile.

sy memang suka sate kat pullman.
sy ambik timun dengan bawang tu banyak-banyak, makan dengan sate & nasi impit.
makan sambil pejam-pejam mata sebab sedappp.


eh terjumpa pulak kawanku murni yang jugak pencinta makanan, kat situ. haha



lighted man. bersama AAs.



ariana suka bergambar dengan orang lampu. anaqi memang sampai ke sudah tak tau posing. dok buat muka confuse dia tu.. hahaha



persembahan api! havoc sakan :DD



ni gimik tarian kat pullman. ala flash mob la.

best tengok gimik tarian ni.
sebab most pengunjung berkumpul ramai-ramai and enjoyed the show.
pulak tu pakai lagu despacito.. ariana pun sukalah.
lagu yang dia familiar kan *ajaran babah. lolx*



enjoying the magical night, as what pullman stated in their promo. magical.






dapatlah glow stick ni, diorang edar-edar kat budak-budak. siapa cepat dia dapat.



sempat snap station durian. time ni tak ramai orang.

ai is ambik sepinggan je.. ada la dalam 6 ulas.
share dengan anaqi.
tak nak makan banyak-banyak, nanti tak dapat enjoy makanan lain. haha
husb cakap dia makan 3 plates (ariana sekali).


my fave ketam!!



udang, untuk tatapan semua :P



enjoying my ketam sambil dengar lagu raya. lolx!


last sekali, harus la bergambar kat prop ramadan pullman.
tee hee.






overall, a great buka puasa experience.
worth every penny.
thank you, pullman for the wonderful treat.

tata!
