twillight


Twillight? It was hot some years back. Heard about it, but my husband wasn't keen on ghost stories.. apatah lagi vampires.... so it has been in our dvd collection.. and we never even talked about watching it. Until I was in confinement, the end of it to be exact. Nasuha was well, and i'm healthy and doesnt need that much rest, and need some entertainment (in other words, dah start boring la tu).

So I asked dear hubby to buy me all twillight dvds...(i dont even know the sequence, asked around which one's first, before watching them). That time, my intention was only to know, what's so hot about it. I wasnt relaly into buffy, and wasnt really into other vampire story as well.

It might be the story, it might the the actors, it might be the good quality of the dvd, it might be my loneliness, it might be the ambience around me while I watch.. I dont know.. but I do relly fall for these saga!!!!!! I started of with twillight, felt bored in the beginning... siap tweeting lagi masa tengok. I miss some actions in it. Then new moon begin to struck me, with interesting cross section thru human, vampires and werewolves - or the shape shifters to be exact. And I totally fell for this saga after Eclipse!!!!! Eclipse was awesome!!!! I like!!

I have always been a fan of these kind of movies-from-novel thingie.. just like harry potter (that reminds me I havent watch the recent HP) so of course I was ticklish to read the last book, Breaking Dawn.. I just have to know what happen next. Nasib baik sangat la dah publish dah bukunya. Or else merana jiwa la daku. And as I could predict myself, it is not enough for me to read just Breaking Dawn, so now i have read all the four books of the saga.

Stephenie Meyer, I like your books, and she is lucky... all the movies so far was a success. Of course, I think J.K Rowling's HP is still my favorite. Harry Potters were filled with imagination, and excitement that kept me reading...but the Twilight Saga has kept me in the stories, and pours emotion thru the whole book. And I could say I totally love them all.

Of course, movies are a bit different from the book-thats a norm. But some are okay to me.

In Twillight - I would say its ok for the movie to be a bit different. The way Bella found out about Edward is better enterpreted in the movie compared to in the book. In the New Moon, the book explains more, of how could Bella loves Jacob too. In Eclipse the movie, I just hated Jacob so much - so kacau daun-tak faham faham kind of guy- but in the book, Jacob seems to be so pitiful. Mangsa keadaan-wujud tak kena tempat.

Ecplise and Breaking Dawn was written differently. (I read the books back to back, and watch the movie back to back, so I could notice the difference) Eclipse has quite a lot of explanation of what Edward and Jacob were, as if anyone reading Ecplise will never felt missing a lot from the first 2 books. And the way Eclipse was ended from Jacobs' perspective-touchy. Very touchy.

And Breaking Dawn is my favorite book of all (if you think I would spoil the mood, stop reading here) I bet the movies would be the best. It will be in 2 part, I heard. Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2. I read it twice!!!! (and dont ask how many times I watch the movies)

So, overall.. I dont know about quality, filming, literature.. bla bla bla.. but The Twilight Saga is worth watching. Its not a ghost story, or a vampires adventure kinda story.. Its actually a love story, that is against nature. Love in between human and vampire..with a werewolf stuck in between. its a new fairy tale story, a new rome and juliet (not really gooey like that) in other words - an epic.

why'd I say its a new fairy tale???????????? hehehhe

Because it ended with "Forever and ever and eve"

Ok, I'm a spoiler????? Not that much. You can hit me now.

masuk kerja

this is my last week, of being at home mom. and Nasuha, believe me I had a great time with you. Yup,, all those hiccups and stressful moments with you - ended up so worth it. Ya... mama miss those gaji hujung bulan... but you are this little once in your life time je. Setakat ni alhamdulillah, Nasuha sihat-in fact very good in health... harapnya masuk nursery tak de kejutan. Hope Allah lindungi anak mama...

hmm yg tak bestnya belum kerja dah stress!!!! baru je fikir nak masuk kerja.. tetiba stress melanda!!! hmmm ada tak tempat kerja yg seronok dan tak stress. Ada... tempat kerja Norhasnadira Hashim.. hingga hubby dia suruh berhenti pun dia belum hantar surat resign. (kalau org lain la.. suruh hantar surat next week, minggu ni dah hantar dah lepas dpt green light) talking about stressfull work place. (naa is a positif person actually, she did admit she did felt stress lately-sorry na.. borrow ur name untuk membebel kat sini)

Most of the workplace mmg la stressful. biasa la kerja.. but some of those stress are unnecessary! Kalau stress pasal kerja byk, dateline.. itu adalah biasa.. ini stress pasal lain!! yg tak sepatutnya!!!!!
you know what.. these unecessary stress actually leads to - lost of passion to the job, lost of sincerity to the office, lost of loyalty... mcm2 la..

ha? stress unnecessary tu apa? biasa la.. people's attitude, office atmosphere, persaingan kurang sihat, apa lagi ek . hmmm (can u guys help me out here??) hmm office politics.. or just moron bosses... for me? hmmmm.. my office are the typical - ofis orang melayu (walaupun office ku bukan office org melayu, but the attitude is there) - where orang suka komen pasal org lain daripada improve diri sendiri. bla bla bla.. dan lain lain lagi

hmm i'm going to step into that by next week..and start life all over again. I am older now, more matured.. could i face all this, dengan lebih bijak lagi. As usual, i'd mind my own business. and doa banyak banyak that things will go easy for me.. semoga rezeki anak anak kami dipermudahkan, amin.

2.5 months Nasuha


Nasuha is 2.5 months now.. almost 3 months.. but to our eyes.. she seems older than that. She looks bigger for a 2 months old, she is strong physically, she held up her head high to look around. And she start to respond to us...mimicking faces, and making sounds that we love! And when she smiles... we melt!!!!!

There's another 2 weeks to go...for me to spend time with her... then she'll be in nursery... pity my baby. But rethinking about it... its ok.. Zahraa had a great time there, and hope Nasuha will too! We are lucky i'll be close, so I could visit her anytime i want.. (this reminds me..of the pumping routine-which would begin at the office soon)

Happy growing Nasuha! As much as i want you to grow quick, i enjoyed spending every single moment with you... so far, i havent miss anything (you're even by my side when i sleep, remember that). Mummy loves you Nasuha!!!!

milk supply

one of the main reason to spend confinement in Penang was to build EBM stock for Nasuha, as a preparation for her to enter the nursery. We were quite dissapointed as Zahraa was exclusively breastfed until 5 months only. This time, my husband wish for me to do more, try better this time.. insyallah, i hope really hope I could do so.

For now, I could only pump once a day, usually early morning..wanted to pump more (tried pump twice a day, but couldnt get much) as Nasuha keeps nursing all day long.

On the 40th day... this is basically what we had so far



this time around i tried the plastic bag as milk storage. So far i tried 3 brands and my favourite is the Autumnz... good at the price with that quality. I love the double zipper, and the indication in oz and ml.
