a busy week

I had a busy week .. and that's gonna continue till June. I am now working on this proposal on a commercial condo in Bayan Baru..right in front of our condo-to-be.. leceh betul.. I am so jealous...that seems to be a nicer one than ours :P ergh.. tapi takpelah.. for sure the one we already had is far cheaper than this.. but this is still under proposal, will be launch next year, after planning approval that was targeted by September. So seems I got somehting big in hand at the moment. I kinda hate this.. its kinda big, I should be happy with it... But the thing is, no architect want this project because initially they dont want to work with 'the top' project manager... well, if you know what I mean. So.. back to square-all project that is unwanted by other architect goes to me...just like old times...

Kesian this only lady - referring to myself - sort of kena buli

But whatever.. I'm gonna take this challenge.. tak kisah la whatever happen... well, Mr project manager, like it or not.. I'm the only one you have now..so take it or leave it (i prefer you leave it, then my life would be better off without this)

8P petua kebahagiaan rumah tangga

Petua 8P Ustazah Siti Nurbahyah

Siti Nur Bahyah berkata,

1) P yang pertama ialah 'puji' iaitu setiap pasangan perlu saling memuji antara satu sama lain dalam semua aspek kehidupan seperti masakan atau ucapan terim! a kasih apabila diberi pertolongan.

2) Katanya, P kedua ialah 'peluk' yang mana pasangan suami isteri hendaklah selalu peluk memeluk antara satu sama lain sekerap mungkin pada setiap hari kerana pelukan itu adalah belaian penuh kasih sayang.

3) P seterusnya ialah 'penghargaan' di mana amalan memberi hadiah boleh menambah kasih sayang.

4) 'Perhatian' adalah P keempat yang mesti diambil berat kerana kekurangan perhatian boleh mengakibatkan pasangan terasa diabaikan, katanya yang menulis buku Cakar Harimau - Tips Kebahagiaan Rumah Tangga, Amalan Ibu Mengandung dan Panduan Mencerdaskan Minda.

5) Siti Nur Bahyah berkata, P seterusnya mewakili 'persefahaman'

6) Menurutnya, P selanjutnya membawa maksud 'pergaulan' iaitu pasangan suami isteri mesti menjaga pergaulan masing-masing dengan orang lain bagi mengelakkannya daripada melampaui batas, menimbulkan cemburu seterusnya membawa kepada pembabitan orang ketiga.

7) Beliau berkata, satu lagi P adalah 'percutian' di mana kita perlu merancang percutian berdua-duaan dengan pasangan di tempat yang jauh daripada kesibukan dan kehidupan rutin.

8) Katanya, P yang terakhir ialah 'permohonan' iaitu doa kepada Allah supaya merapatkan kasih sayang antara pasangan suami isteri serta dijauhi daripada godaan kemewahan dan keseronokan dunia.

Siti Nur Bahyah juga menurunkan beberapa amalan doa selepas solat yang boleh merapatkan hubungan dan menimbulkan kasih sayang antara suami isteri iaitu membaca surah Al-Imran ayat ke-31 atau membacakan ayat ke-200 surah sama bagi mengurangkan panas baran suami.
Beliau berkata, kunci kebahagiaan rumah tangga yang sebenar ialah mendekatkan diri dengan Allah. Katanya, apabila seseorang insan mengabaikan tanggung jawab terhadap agama, dia akan mengabaikan rumah tangga kerana jiwa yang kosong.

"Ketika kita jauh daripada Allah, iblis yang suka umat manusia bercerai-berai akan menghampiri dan melalaikan kita daripada tanggung jawab terhadap keluarga," katanya.

"sampaikanlah pesanan yang bermanfaat walaupun 1 ayat"

coming soon??

It seem like our home-to-be construction is speeding up lately. That seems great..if we could move in earlier than expected, why not..save our rental fees. I am quite excited/nervous/do no where to start with this house. It is my first time moving (moving in after marriage doesnt count - that was just 2 bag and 3 paper bags??) and of course first time to own a house. A place on our own.. cant imagine that yet. Renovating could take a lot of work and cost a lot too!!

This is the main entrace into the house. Look too big is it? Those square feet here should be shifted inside, I think
The bathroom at master bedroom

The master bedroom.. I dunno if we really need that sliding door? Err.. dont think will need to lepak outside, no one is smoking by the way

2nd bathroom. hmm i dont really fancy the tiling choice of the architect

Bedroom 3

Bedroom 2.. Zahraa's room-to-be??

Corridor towards the rooms..quite narrow.. I plan to install book shelves here.. but err dont think it would fit

The living area and dining area

3rd toilet

4th room / utility..might turn into laundry room

Yeah!! my kitchen.. it look small to me, it seems not proportionate to the whole house...might need a renovation later

Another sliding door at the living hall.. got to spend a lot for curtain (and have fun choosing curtains!! yippie)


So these are the picture of our place to be... Thanks for these pictures, I took these from the blog


The pink building is Sri Malaysia hotel

There are little slack here and there.. but which building is not.. anyways I am grateful to have a place to stay.. there are still so many people being homeless in this world, and even inappropriate house in our country. So whatever it is, I'm so grateful to Allah for this rezeki. Hope the construction will be completed soon.

who's anne frank

well.. since Mye's has asked about it.. I thought why not I write about it??
I remembered reading this when I was in primary school...around 9-10 years old, I think.. and it was the first true story book I have ever read (seingat aku la..) It is about a girl who is in hiding place while there's war.. she wrote about the hiding place, err soldiers if i'm not mistaken.. and I think its the ever book that taught me to imagine things :P every time I think of the word diary I will remember this story book.. Love it.. the one i read.. warna pink cover with brown or black fonts :P and the picture of the girl.. rambut gulung.. err.. entah le bertul ke apa yg aku ingat ni..

But since Mye asked, I was thinking, betul ke ada buku yg aku baca ni, and betul ke it is a real story, so I googled out.. oh, rupanya there's a lot about her.. and even a official website :D Thanks Anne Frank.. I think I learned writing a diary/blog from you :P

And thanks Mye.. giving me the idea what to write today :D

"I haven't written for a few days, because I wanted first of all to think about my diary. It's an odd idea for someone like me to keep a diary; not only because I have never done so before, but because it seems to me that neither I - nor for that matter anyone else - will be interested in the unbosomings of a thirteen-year-old schoolgirl. Still, what does that matter? I want to write, but more than that, I want to bring out all kinds of things that lie buried deep in my heart." (from The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, 1952)

green phone charger




This is so cool, yet so green.. A light, a charger becomes the solar energy Eneloop Solar Light. It stores solar energy in the day to get ready for the night. It is composed of nine white LED light source which can be divided into three levels of flat-panel brightness adjustment. According to the brightness of LED light, it will last different time; usually it can be maintained after the 9-50 hours. Even if all nine lights turned on and the brightness to maximum, it can be used continuously for nine hours. In addition, it is equipped with USB interface; On top of that, the USB port charges your phone/gadgets, all by using solar as energy.

Zahraa loves to play with her Abah's pen, and note book..one day she scribbled on her palm, feet and cheek.. I am not sure whether 14 month old baby is ready for stationary or not, so I decided to try her on a magnetic drawing board..well, she seems know to use the thing ..

Well, forget about the machine, I hand sew then.. :P So I did..a dress for Zahraa, of course it wasn't perfect.

Earth day

22nd April 09 is Earth Day!!!

zahraa ate durian!!


I forgot about this picture. I was browsing thru my phone today and these really make me smile. This was taken in december, which she was 10 mo +. We can't really believe she loves the durian. She screamed when I took it away from her..we had to finish all durian quickly so she didnt eat so much of those..


green home - pica condo

I am a new addition to this project, Pica condo, a 4 tower condo@bayan mutiara a.k.a Queensbay area. Our head architect, Syed Hyder (masih bujang) drag me into this as the ID. The meeting I attended yesterday was very interesting as it was dicussing about Green Building certification. Our client plan to make this condo as the first condo in Penang having this cert of Green Building or it is called as Green Marks Certification. A consultant from Singapore came to give a review on our design. He, however would give a full advice on how to get points to pass the requirement (there are examiners that will look into the building, make assessment and give mark to the building) after been appointed by our client. Those passing 50 points will get the least cert. Oh, by the way, the cert has many levels too, in a simple way, it has like 2 star, 3 star, 4 star.. as such)

Some of the criteria mentioned yesterday in order to get the Green Building cert are (still basic as we haven't appoint them yet):

- Landscape: Volume of trees of certain types of trees
- Glass walls and windows: Installing special film to reduce heating
- Cool paint: Apply a special paint that will reflect heat. This heat reduce could be calculated and proved with this usage of cool paint.. (i think this is super cool :P)
- As much as natural lighting and natural ventilation to the common area
- If all parties, architects, C&S, M&E and QS has the cert of ISO 14001 - 1 point will be given
- If manual is given to the residents of how to practice living in green concept - 1 point will be given
- Swimming pool - maintenance free and chlorine free
- Using mobile compactor and providing recycle bin
- Lighting load reduce
- Using solar panel to reduce power consumption

I will update these item form time to time. Before this, I was glad architects has awareness into green living, but it cant happen if developers are not willing to invest in it. I think it is great that our client want to do this, however, we are waiting for Penang CM to have a nod to do this this year.

body weight management

I am always worry about my body weight especially when those apparels need another size up and half of the wardrobe cant fit me anymore. But I never did do anything about it. The only thing I did was having light and early dinner.. (light was just like, 2 or 3 currypuffs, or 2 slice of bread) Well, thats for almost a year now, but I dont loose weight much.

Recently my best friend made me realise that good diet and exercise is not only to loose weight. But it is also for health, for a better preparation if we are conceiving. I was like.. dang!! never really thought of that. So that was where I make a turnaround and decide I have to watch carefully what I consume and find sometime to exercise. My husband was beig very very supportive :D, gave me some RM to buy a new running shoes. Yesterday, we went to Pisa stadium and I joined the aerobic there while DH play with Zahraa.

Its great, why dont join me? Venue: Pisa, Time: 8 am every weekend Fees: FOC

P/s It left me feeling very very tired today... :P sakit badan . huhuhuhu

coming up with this blog

This is a second time I am creating blog. More than 1 year ago, Mye introduced me into blogging, and I had zoora.vox.com since then. I found blogging is great, and it has been a new hobby to me, making it interesting and all. It teaches me more about the net too. Vox was great, entries are easy to post, I have my own library, and the it easy to use, suits one who is new to blogging like me (no working on codes and html and all) However, after sometime I noticed there are certin things that I cant to or manage with vox. 1. Non member cannot leave me comment 2.I cant add more than 1 favourite widget 3.It doesnt show all my favourite links 4,I cant have my own template.
That is how this blog come up. Just want to make thing more interesting. However, there's a few tips I want to share. First of all, the template I am using was downloaded from some blogger template website. I have chose a few other skins earlier, but this particular one I am using is the only one successfully uploaded. Well it seems this is my destiny then :D hehehe. But I had a few bumps upgrading it as well.. and at last, I found out that the templates cannot be upgraded or edited or been customised when I'm on my Mac. It can only be done on Window's Internet Explorer, and this fact wasnt told in all those help tools and websites i've read. Thank you for all the responses and advices gave to me, but it is that simple-it doesnt work on Mac (hope the designer read this) What happened actually was some of the tabs doesnt appear as it was suppose to be, and there aren't buttons there are suppose to be there on the site map..funny rite.. but that was what happened to me.
If there's anyone has encountered this, it is actually that simple - runs on a different OS.

By the way, thanks to my husband who has help uploaded this template and fix the codes so it works.
