Happy Teacher's Day

To all of us who are teaching,
here's a toast to you!
we may not get the megabucks,
but that doesn't drag us down,
we work for those "moments",
a nod here and there,
a bow once in a while,
all the thank yous,
and forget-me-nots,
i feel elated today,
for a simple "greatest teacher in the world" card.

sayang's cravings

it's not easy looking at sayang carrying all the weight in this baby-business. as sayang's belly is getting bigger and bigger, i feel more and more helpless because i think i'll never understand and feel what she goes through everyday. i wish i could do more.

Syukur Alhamdullilah, sayang has not experienced any morning sickness thus far. but instead sayang would feel nauseated more during the night just before we go to sleep. sayang needs a lot of space in the bed because she get uncomfortable, the doctor said that it's due to her body readjusting itself.

sayang sangat2 baik in this pregnancy, tidak mengindam apa2 yang diluar jangkauan minda. cuma sejak last weekend sayang has been talking about eating steamboat but i couldn't find any so we compensated with nando's hot peri-peri. anyway today sayang's cravings was answered as the whole family went to a steamboat restaurant in subang perdana, but when the dish was served, sayang tak rasa nak makan bacause her appetite putus because of the aftertaste in the soup. so everyone pun makan sepuas hati except for sayang, sian dia.

that's about it, i'll keep you posted once we get back from our ipoh rendezvous, and maybe we'll show you sayang's growing silhouette.

gynae visit

we've never seen anything so wonderful on the computer screen - our baby's heartbeats! Subhanallah..

hari ni we went to DEMC to do sayang's second check-up. The first check-up was with our regular doctor - Dr. Zaini. But being first timers, we decided that maybe we should play safe with a gynaecologist, and we met Dr. Mazita who was really pleasant and we think we want her to be on our team when sayang delivers, InsyaAllah..

sayang did an ultrasound and we saw our little baby swimming in sayang's womb. the baby was moving round and round, and the doctor showed us the baby's heartbeat. we know some of you like our friend diza would want to know whether it's a boy or girl. Well, at just 9 weeks, it's too early to tell you see, because the baby is still yet to take on the form of a baby. but the doctor said that by our next visit we can see lil's baby looking more human like. well whether it's a girl or boy, we'll leave it to God to decide, and we pray to him that our baby will be born perfect and healthy..

anyway, on the ultrasound screen, kita nampak baby punya heartbeat degup-degup tau, you can't really see the heart tau, but nampaklah jelas gak it blinking and blinking on the screen! So proud our lil' baby working hard to grow up!

a while ago

life was carefree a while back, attending lectures and hanging out and churning assignments, that's all in retrospect. just a a glimpse back, and i see a shoe junkie and gadget addict who was all too willing to detached from any responsibilities.

i think i've said that i wanted to buy the most expensive shoes i can afford with the first paycheck, and that i'll remain a devoted tech-cult, that i'll be technocrat or gadget-sexual as husni described. i've kept to none.

i still fall for shoes when i come across ones that catch my fancy, i still need to hold them and smell the leather, but the urge to buy has left me. i used to be so into tech stuff, reading and experimenting with them, but the only thing i have now besides my aging compaq is a new vodafone hsdpa wireless modem. though i still sometimes dream of my dell that was stolen from me.

changed are my wants and needs. i look forward to her smile when i get back from work, conversations over the phones with her thrills me, waking up in the morning to an angelic smile leaves me warm inside. these days, i look forward coming back to a growing belly, i am happy.

those were good days indeeds, but these are definitely better.
