First Day Dress (pattern by Dana)

This would be my second time purchased Dana’s patterns. The first was Kid shorts. What I like most about Dana’s  pattern is her detail instructions with lots of clear how-to photos which makes it easy to understand & visualise too. The simplicity of the pattern which incorporated with variety of styles (both her shorts and dress/top) are a huge bonus! Totally a plus points for any sewist to buy her patterns!

Anyhow, here’s a two dress top I made for my eight years old daughter, Mia.


A simple dress top using plaid . Turns out quite well! Rockin’ her top at the new Spotlight store recently open in Malaysia.

Here’s another dress top with peplum style I make for her the following day. Yes, the pattern is so easy you can’t stop at making only one! 🙂

If only my hobby could turn into a full time job, I wanna sew this all day long. Someday perhaps uh? heh

Until then, bye peeps!

My baby girl turns EIGHT!

In case you hadn’t notice , my three kid’s birthday are close by. And September 9th, was my daughter – Mia who just turns eight years old. Wrote her a card with lots advice and hopes and dreams for her.. when asked, “do you understand what mommy wrote in there” ” Yes Mommy !” and she smiled. Later on, as I was cleaning up the kitchen and washing dishes, she came from my back and hugged me real tight “I loveeee you Mommy” That the best feeling ever. I feel so blessed and thankful for a wonderful daughter.

Love you Mia Aisha.. LillahiTaala

Off to the Museum


Mia has been asking me for the longest time to bring her to visit  our national museum. One fine day, I finally make the time to bring both Mia & Mike (sans husband and baby) here. Kids below 12 years old can enter for free, while adults (with MyKad) are charged at only RM2. Cheap right? !

Its been ages since I last visited this place. When we stepped in, I must say..I was pretty impressed. So much has been changed. It was bright and looks spacious, and nicely done too- the arrangement and few new interactive media. And to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of history, but I believe it is important our kids to learn the olden times and its history background. Now as I’m a parent I understand better hehe.. So my dear children, learn your history!!


Mia couldn’t stop asking me the why, the how, the when,…endless. But we totally had fun discussing it. Mike was curious as well as he actually finished reading “Curious George goes to the Museum” so he was hoping to see dinosaurs’ skeleton but there was none.  Good thing he wasn’t disappointed but carry on exploring the museum like a champ.

At the end of the day, we had another round of ice-creams. Yes, before we entered the kids had one each. I say why was indeed a hot sunny day.

Road to recovery

March welcome us with not so good health for our entire households. For close to two weeks all of us came down with flu,cough and fever. It all started from my youngest son mukhriz then mike and me, and last was my husband. Mia was very lucky as she just had a runny nose and slight cough.

All is good now Alhamdulillah praise to Allah.Although now my baby is in a teething phase so at times during his ‘feeding’ session I cringed and trying to hang in there while my poor baby gave me a gummy smile..haih too cute! I know this too shall pass but I just cant wait for it to be over.
one of my favourite photo of my children all together 🙂

Until the next post, just remember no matter how good or bad you think life is,wake up each day and be thankful for life. Someone somewhere else is fighting to survive.

New Year,New Beginning


A new journey for my eldest, Mia Aisha – off to Primary school in year one and my three year old-ish Mike to kindergarten. We have no problem sending Mike on his first day. He was practically teacher’s favourite since her sister’s days there. I was more anxious for Mia on her first day in school, it felt surreal just to see her in the dark blue pinafore with white shoes and tie (was told to be worn on first day of school). Hard to believe she’s all grown up for big school. Finally I myself has become a school-going mommy! Hah a new adventure for this mommy alright 🙂  There’s nothing more than a mother  wants the best for her children and I pray she’ll do well in school and make friends for life there.

We picked Mike up after his school and brought him to Kakak Mia’s school. He was thrill to see her sister! even willing to share his drinks…well, just for a minute! haha ..
