Tesco Online Shopping

Nowadays people like to do their shopping online. Me? I'm still 'old-style' because I kinda like to 'hand-pick' all the stuff I need :P (just to make sure that all the stuff I get are in its pristine condition).

2 days ago, I decided to do my shopping online. Just to see how it goes. So I browsed the Tesco online shopping web, chose all the groceries I need and finally chose the delivery date. I chose today.

And this morning, the delivery guys came. They gave me my order list, they brought all the stuff to my doorstep and asked me to check everything. So I went through all the stuff, make sure that everything was there, and finally made the payment.

I'm truly satisfied with the Tesco online shopping and the delivery service. The best part, Tesco only charge me RM10 for delivery. How cool is that! And the stuff are in pretty good condition :)

These are the Tesco delivery guys. Smile for the camera boys :)

So if you guys are busy, have no time for shopping, not really like to get stucked in the traffic, I guess online shopping is the best choice. This way, you save a lot of time and money (petrol & toll).

Yummy Muesli Bars

I was craving for this when I was still pregnant. But that time I didn't know where to get it from. I've never seen it at Econsave or Max Value or even at 7 E.

Found it last night at Tesco, finally! And the taste…yummy…

Suitable as a healthy snack ;)

Line 7 vs Pallas Jazz

For the past 3 years, we've been 'loyal' to Pallas Jazz. Both Aisyah and Amal had 2 pairs each. So this year, we plan to get the same pair for Anis. But as we were choosing her size at the store, hubby saw this Line 7 shoes. We instantly fell in love with this one because the outer part is rubber instead of cloth.

What's so good about rubber shoes? It's easy to clean! Just wipe it with wet cloth. Whereas the cloth type needs washing and brushing and of course drying…which is kinda wasting time and energy.

But of course the price is higher than Pallas Jazz. Pallas only costs you around RM25 while Line 7 costs you RM30++. Differs only by less than RM10. Still affordable.

Another advantage of rubber shoes is that we only need to get one pair for each, one for Aisyah, one for Amal and one for Anis. Whereas if we take the Pallas Jazz, we would have to get 2 pairs for each of them. So, we actually save a lot!

Hard To Say Goodbye!

Sunday, Aug 4, 2013 : It was noon when we headed to Kemaman to visit my dad who was hospitalised few days before. We reached there at 5.30pm. Met my sister who was looking after our dad this whole time. She told me not to be surprised…which gave me unpleasent feeling :(

When I heard my dad was hospitalised, I never thought he was in critical condition coz 2 weeks before when we went to visit him, he seemed fine. We talked and dine (berbuka) together. It never occured to me that it would be the last dinner I had with him…

It was still visiting hour when we arrived at the hospital. I went in first with my sister. Hubby stayed in the car looking after the kids. The minute I saw my dad, lying unconscious on the bed, I cried. Only then I realised that he was very ill.

I hold him, kissed him on the cheek…he was warm…he was breathing pretty hard…his eyes were closed…and it remained closed untill I left the ward :(

After I came out, my hubby went in. About half an hour later, hubby came out. And dad was still unconscious.

We break our fast at the hospital. After prayer time, hubby went in again. He recited surah Yaasin. When he came out, he told me that dad was breathing smoothly. So we decided to proceed our plan, that is to head for Kelantan, assuming that my dad would get better.

Sadly, he didn't! Just about an hour after we left the hospital, my brother-in-law texted me, telling me to turn back. I called him…asked him why?…what's wrong with dad?… He told me that the doctor was checking on dad…to confirm his death!

I cried all the way back to the hospital… no word can describe how I felt that time… part of me died along that night :(

I miss my dad so much… I miss him telling me "I love you" everytime he ended his call. I miss his voice… I miss everything about him…

On the night of 27th Ramadhan, I lost my hero, my most beloved dad. It was like a dream…hard for me to accept…but that's just life…no matter how hard for me to let him go, I still have to let him go…but he'll forever be in my heart, in my mind…and I will forever love him, as he had loved me…

Te…may peace be upon you…and may Allah bless you…I love you so much…my only regret is that I never get to say I Love You for the last time…

Your daughter,

Back To School 2014

This year, 4 of our kids are going to school - 3 at primary and 1 at PASTI (pre-school). So the expenses kinda increase a bit (actually quite a lot). And life is surely getting busier...

There are a lot of things that need to be bought before the school day starts. Some I can get from just any shop, while some other need to be bought only at the school shop ie. PBS workbooks. The school uniform, note books, basic stationery are all essential. While the workbooks on the other hand, is 'on-request' basis.

Why did I say 'on-request' basis? Because in my experience, only some teachers use the PBS workbooks, while others only use the workbooks given by the school. Last year I got all the workbooks that had been suggested by the shop keeper and ended wasting it coz they weren't being used. So this year, I decided to wait for the teachers' instruction :)

Sometimes, we tend to spend on unnecessary stuff, unconsciously. So, to ensure that I don't overspend, I make a list of all items to buy, as usual. It's kinda our routine to make a shopping list everytime we go shopping. And as last year, I've prepared for the unexpected 'loss' ie missing eraser, sharpener, or broken ruler etc. I've bought note books, pencils, book wrapper, eraser in bulk, knowing that throughout the year, the kids are gonna need them. This has saved me plenty of 'shopping hour' and money coz things are much cheaper if you buy it in bulk.

Among what I've bought...

Note books

Not All Women Are The Same

Assumptions can sometimes hurt people's feeling…especially bad assumptions…and so does prejudgment.

Men like to think that all women are the same. They like to think that all women like jewellery, diamonds, bags, shoes, all those luxuries and also window shopping. In another word, they think that all women like spending money. They're wrong! TOTALLY!

Not all women are as what they think. There are a lot of women out there that are different…and I live among them…and I'm also one of them.

Different than some women, my mom, mom-in-law and I are not really into all those luxuries, jewellery, diamonds etc. I also don't like handbags, window shopping, makeup, or having a huge collection of shoes and watches. I'm not a fan of cars or luxury homes etc.

A conversation with my hubby's friend few weeks ago kinda forced me to write this. He told us that his wife asked for a luxury car. He said that, women are tend to spend their husbands' money. So if not managed carefully, the wife might overspend.

To me, there's nothing wrong for a wife to ask something from the husband…a token of appreciation perhaps…after all, the wife has indeed sacrificed a lot for the husband and their children. But I myself prefer not to ask for anything. Maybe because I have nothing to ask for. And if I do have something that I want, I would rather use my own money than to burden my husband.

One thing we as a wife need to understand…the money that our husband work for everyday is for the survival of the family. Therefore, as a wife, we need to think a way of spending it wisely. And only on necessities. That is our responsibilities.

To men, not all women are the same. As a human being, we are all different from one another. And as a husband and wife, we just simply complete each other. Appreciate each other for each of us has made a huge sacrifice for our family in our own way.

Fathi's Present

One morning…

"Ma…Fathi nak toy Lightning McQueen dalam 'present'…Fathi bangun, SURPRISE!!…"

Subhanallah!!… at such a young age, Fathi manages to use his 'imagination skill' very well, Alhamdulillah…

He's been asking for Lightning McQueen for quite a long time. We've promised to get him one after he'd completed his toilet training for 1 month.

And finally, the day he's been waiting for has come…and both he and Hifdzi were happy to get their presents.
