What’s in your bag?

Yesterday, we chatted about tudung. Today, let’s chat about bag.

(Nak raya ni…dah beli beg raya ker belum? :> Me dah awal2 sambar satu from Alice Wonders!)

This is my bag. The bag that I bring to work & even to certain outing. Got it from Alice Wonders. That design is no longer available in Alice Wonders.

It is roomy enough for me to dump many, many, things inside.


Those are ‘things’ that you can find in my bag. Hemm…let’s see..what are those..


Wallet (purse), coin purse, glasses + case + contact lense case, solution, camera (not in pic coz i’m using it-lah), camera battery charger, pendrive, small powerful torchlight, small umbrella, old Nokia phone, phone charger, few make-up (a must), cloth wipes + case, small black notebook, pen, rolled-up reusable shopping bags (two of them in medium sized is a must), name card holder, sunglasses, sweets (munchies), keys, pursehook, blotter, balm, book or novel (me left the current reads at home so the mag is substitute & mask! (H1N punyer penangan da…)

If me out with the boys for short trip, that bag can even hold additional 1 to 2 Baby Hambali’s CD & 1 extra clothing, just in case.

Hemmm…currently Alice Wonders is having Unbirthday Party! Woo-hoo! And, I’m eyeing these bags…..

Me been thinking to get a lighter shade rather maintaining black, brown & red for a bag! (But the 3s are my favourite colours for my appearance attire!)

Nak ubah image, kan? Ahaks!



So, what’s in your bag?
😛

My Evaluation on this year Resolution

Exactly few days before my birthday on December 24th last year, I had listed down 10 Resolution for this year right in this Chatterbox.

We are already in the second half of this year and before you have much thought about the remaining months…2010 is just around the corner & it is time for you to say goodbye to 2009.

Guess it won’t hurt for me to evaluate on my own whether I have accomplished the self-initiated resolution now.

Okay, here we go…

2009 Resolution Checklist Evaluation:-

1.Love myself more – allocate time to be on my own just to do stuff that I love such as reading novel, portrait sketching, listening to music simultaneously sing along & dance like nobody is watching so I be less stress in juggling roles in my life.

Well, I’m back on track in reading as each month, I make sure at least I buy one book for myself. Am enjoying music & have been on likes of few albums, yet to sketch any portrait though..

2.Spend more time with my eldest son – I admit that since the born of my younger son, I’ve been neglecting him..I used to read to him, homeschool him daily for about 2 hours touching many subjects & he always tag along when I’m out on my own…(sigh..)

Homeschooling him now & having him around me every Thursday & Friday in the office so I can teach & spend time with him, yes..I am accomplishing this..from time to time I plan allocate time over the weekend for outing with him since our 1st date recently.

3.Increase frugality in our financial maintenance.

Hemm….no more dispos for the boys, always buy refill for items like shower foam, growing up milk for Hanafi…buy our boys apparel during Sale & utilising the membership & accumulated points as much as we can, always lookout anywhere we can obtain voucher or lower price in many ways…teaching Hanafi to save money (Menabung), Hubby took the Al-Rajhi progamme & am have been surveying to teach again part-time…

4.Start recycling project in our family despite the fussiness & hassle for the good of mankind.

I’m guilty as can be…the closest we are doing now is reduce plastic bag usage by bringing our own shopping bag & cloth diaper lil Hambali.

5.Be the social bug like I used to be – meet up more people & get myself involve in any good cause activities.

Social bug, not so bad…good cause activities? Hemmm…need to be work out more on this part.

6.Pray & read Quran more & be thankful of what we are having.

Again, guilty as can be…just average to rate me on this manner…nevertheless we are thankful with the rezeki & gifts of the past months…

7.Take up new skill & attend more workshop or sign up classes…what I have in mind is to take language course.

New skill? I will start my Bento project very soon….

Attend workshop or sign up classes? Language class still pending due to lack of fund & time constraint…oh there’s one upcoming next month, perhaps could take up that as new venture…I still did’nt materialise this Arty-Crafty idea of mind though I have been haunting few Art Shop around..where can I slot the time to focus on this? Sigh…

8.Keep on reminding hubby & myself to hang on tough in times of turbulence & support each other.

Oh this one, all the time…

9.Get closer to the people that I love & serve them more.

Just so-so when it comes to both my side & dear hubby’s side of family..

To our family, we are ongoing bringing up our two boys the best we can manage & spending & doing things for them is forever fulfilling..so the Saturday & Sunday always be Our Family Time, no compromise on that!

10.STOP PROCRASTINATING & go back to No.1 to 9 & do it without any excuse as well as for Lillahitaala.

Ha!Ha! I am procrastinating in ‘some’ in the list, am I?


So, how do I rate? Do you care to share your point of view, my Chit-chatters? 😛

What’s up?

It’s my birthday today. As I’m mulling the remaining day…it dawned on me to jog down the memory lane and give it a serious thought.

What I have achieved in my life?

Let’s view from the monetary sense. Yes, I am not rich. I’m just a middle-class working citizen having to meet both ends and fulfilling duties and obligations. I can’t simply grab whatever I fancy and don’t even glance at the price whenever I do shopping. I can’t simply start a new collection as a hobby and less care whether I still have enough cash in hand. I can’t simply treat people around me with things like gifts, lunch or dinner treats and such. I can’t simply pamper myself at least weekly just go to spa, do facial, hair treatment and such. Does it bother me that I can’t do those? I don’t deny it that it is nice to be able to do that but would I be happy and satisfy when I do those kind of things? If I can do that without feeling guilty, then I would say yes, just continue doing so as long as you are happy.

Let’s view from the physical side of myself. I did lose weight after giving birth second time and I still want to lose more weight. I owe this to self-discipline during confinement and the beauty of breastfeeding. Nevertheless, a little bit of exercise and stretching few times per week does good to me too. Am I happy? Of course! As long as I am happy on doing it, I will continue to do so.

Let’s view from the emotional state of myself. I’m blessed with 2 beautiful and smart sons. I would say they are both beautiful because they are the combination of both hubby and me. I’m blessed with the love I received from my loved one and able to return the love. I’m blessed with roof upon my head and enough food to feed all 4 of us. I’m blessed living in a peaceful country and freedom is not at stake here. I simply can wake up in the morning with full sense of security and knows that I can go anywhere without fear. I know that I am needed by my three boys (2 sons & dear hubby). I am aware too they the only one make myself busy to cater for their needs. Self-fulfillment, self satisfaction. Happy? Affirmative. Will I continue to do so? This is my life. No compromise.

Let’s view from the intelligence side of myself. I am smart. But some people think I’m dumb. To hell to those people who know me less but simply underrated me (sorry for my choice of word). Somehow, I do like to act as if I’m dumb so that I can see the true colour of some people. When people think you’re dumb and think you know nothing, they would start talking about themselves more. They would start rah-rah about their achievement, how good they are, how you should look up to him or her and try to be more like them so that you can be successful just like them. As for me, I rather remains low profile, never ever self-complimenting on what I’ve achieved especially on part what I have been doing in my life. As you know, this blog is to share and for me to keep track on whatever I’m up to would still remain it’s true purpose. I did’nt see myself as an achiever but I would be concentrating more on values rather than look for success. Because what success means to you? How do you measure it? How people measure it when they see your achievement? Can people determine on how much you should be achieving? NO. It is in you. You determine it yourself. That is your intelligence.

Let’s view from the spiritual of myself. Some people I’ve known stated that they are free-thinker. What is free-thinker? To my understanding it is one without faith to any religion or non-follower to any spiritual fulfillment. To them material is what matters them most. One claimed (let’s call this person L) that the needs to fulfill and to achieve success, some immoral things must be done. L claimed that if L remains religious, L unable to achieve success. So to get what L want, L must condone to few immoral things that is unavoidable to L. L only has two choice. L chose the latter one. When I heard this I remain quite and did’nt make any slightest comment. Just nod and brush the topic aside. Me? I am happy that I have faith and believe and following the religion that I embraced. And I am contented. No compromise in this matter.

There goes my thoughts. No fancy gifts for today. Celebrate the day quitely within me and self-amusement to fill in the day. A few well-wisher from close friends is good enough to be appreciated.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to HANZ!!

NEW YEAR RESOLUTION

I might be procrastinating soon but it won’t hurt to list out things that I plan to do, I want to do, I must do & I feel I should do. At least I shall get myself on track next year:-

1.Love myself more – allocate time to be on my own just to do stuff that I love such as reading novel, portrait sketching, listening to music simultaneously sing along & dance like nobody is watching so I be less stress in juggling roles in my life.

2.Spend more time with my eldest son – I admit that since the born of my younger son, I’ve been neglecting him..I used to read to him, homeschool him daily for about 2 hours touching many subjects & he always tag along when I’m out on my own…(sigh..)

3.Increase frugality in our financial maintenance.

4.Start recycling project in our family despite the fussiness & hassle for the good of mankind.

5.Be the social bug like I used to be – meet up more people & get myself involve in any good cause activities.

6.Pray & read Quran more & be thankful of what we are having.

7.Take up new skill & attend more workshop or sign up classes…what I have in mind is to take language course.

8.Keep on reminding hubby & myself to hang on tough in times of turbulence & support each other.

9.Get closer to the people that I love & serve them more.
