Good news!

Hey there,

Le hubs and I just got home from a mini vacation with the kids and guess what?

We are going to have babies!

Not ours though, sorry to have your hopes high.

Our time is yet to come. Insya Allah, one day we will be granted the miracle. 🙂

But for now, we are happy for our friend, A and our daughter, M.

A and her hubs have been trying for years and they were actually going into IVF treatment just next month!

Allah is great, Allahuakbar.

We are both ecstatic  for these great news!

Much love,

Soon to be aunty & gma. 😀


Happy Friday!

It has been over a month since I got back from my vacation and I kinda miss all the great moments I’ve had with my friends and family.

I’m originally from the Borneo island so when I first got to Fort Wayne, it was really hard for me to adjust myself to the weather. To make matters worst, Fort Wayne was hit with one of the worst winter ever, in 20 years.



I was sick for a week and I had sinus problems. Which I never had when I was living in Borneo.

So anyways, I was hanging by the pool two days ago and it was good relaxing time for me. Just reminiscing old good times with my BFF.

We intended to go to Kota Kinabalu and hit the island but things just didnt happen that way. So we got us a room at one of the hotels in Miri, chill by the pool, hit the gym and went for dinner at one of our fav restaurant.

Oooh side note, breakfast was awesome at Park City Everly! I am so going to stay there next time just for the breakfast! Yummers!

Coconut trees everywhere! Weee

Another side note, I think the hotel needs to get a major makeover. Like gigantic.

The property is old. Bath tubs were dirty. Even the pool was dirty.

It’s sad coz it’s a great property and it’s been neglected way too long.

I really hope when I come home next time, the property will be so much better in all aspects.

Just like the Marriott.

I’ll write about the Marriott next time! The husband and I had a wonderful time there.


Girl missing a vacation.

Sleep like a baby.

My body clock is always messed up once I took a nap.

Probably because my nap is never short.

The shortest would be two hours. Haha. No kiddin.

So it sucks so bad when I have sick days. Like I did last week.

I took a nap on Wednesday afternoon and I went to bed about the same time on Thursday night.

I found myself wide awake early Friday morning. Like 3 am.

Yep, my body thought it was just a nap.

So I went to BBW on Saturday to look for this baby……


and it has helped me!

I sprayed it on my chest and pillows and it worked like a charm!

If you have trouble falling asleep, please consider this Aromatherapy Body Mist from Bath & Body Works and let me know if it helps.

Much love,

Happy Girl with Enough Beauty Rest

Sunday Funday

Sunday was Clint’s birthday and we had fun spending the day with him.

We bought him a collar and leash so he could come to the balcony with us and le kitty. He’s not quite liking the collar tho. :/

Sorry, kin.

Hubs made me pancakes on Sunday morning (he loves pancakes, me not so much!). I ate half of mine coz I already made my oatmeal.

Definitely breakfast like a king. 😀

Whipped cream was melting because I was finishing my oatmeals first. Eating the healthy meal first will make me eat less of the naughty stuff. Kihkihkih.

The pancakes were awesome tho. I did regret eating my oatmeals first. Oh well.

My OOTD. Mirror selfie. You know the drill. 😀 Dress is from Charlotte Russe. Lippie from Bite Beauty – Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Brandy. Bracelets from gold smiths in Miri, Malaysia.

FullSizeRenderSlippers from Rocket Dog. Biceps self made with love and sweat

Don’t mind the table lamp on the floor. It was placed on our entertainment centre but since our Comcast box needed change (and they freaking did not have the Moca box that fits in our entertainment centre box SMH), I had no choice. There goes my decor. Ugh.

So since I slept for fourteen hours the night before, I woke up early and made coffee for the husband. We ended up cleaning our cars on Sunday morning. Hah!


Accessories – Sunnies by Versace, Earrings & necklace from gold smiths in Miri, Malaysia. 


It was sunny and warm yesterday and we loved it. I did legs in the afternoon and to my surprise I dont feel so bad this morning. Yay!

Hope everyone is having a great start to this week.

Much love,

Girl Trying to Embrace Monday


Three days of training has left this poor girl exhausted!

How exhausted?

I slept for 14 hours.


So the husband and I ran some errands yesterday.

(Still got some errands to do today. Sigh.)

Then we went to the pool to just chill out!

Albeit a little breezy, it was sunny and so nice out.

Some pictures from our day yesterday. 🙂

Rad sunnies. Hubs picked this up for me. He’s crazy. He could spent hundreds on my glasses and he could also spent 5 dollars on my glasses. Either way, saya redha. 🙂

Proud Mommy.

When the sun is out… & Groove Book


The sun is always so shy to show itself here in Ft Wayne, IN.


Hubs and I felt like sprinting that day and my, my… I am an old woman now!

(I kept telling hubs I’m 27 going 50. Watch what you’re saying!!)

My right knee started to hurt on our way home and the pain still comes and go still. 😦

So on our way home I casually asked the husband to take pictures of me hehe. I’ll tell you why later ok!

No, I’m not a selfie addict. *in denial*

Here are more pictures from our run that day.


Star jump! Hubs is a great photographer. I only had to jump once and he got it! Weee!


Asking for my phone back from le husband. Btw I love my little running pouch. It fits my iPhone 6 but doesnt fit my set of keys. I know right? I’m too much. 

If you were wondering about my choices of clothing that day, yes, I purposely chose to wear pink. LOL.

I have a pink Nike pants too but i thought it was too much pink and I didnt think a lot of people would appreciate that.

Here’s a picture of le husband and uh huh, I’m a great photographer too. I’m so proud of myself.


Yes, we were thrilled for the sun! 

I need(ehem) to take lots of pictures because I am now committed to GrooveBook! It’s an app where you subscribed on monthly basis to get your pictures developed. It’s 2.99$ per month and I just received my first Groove book yesterday.

I am very happy with the quality of the pictures and I already sent in my new order last night! I’m almost done with my new order for May too. Excited!!

Thanks D for introducing the app to me! I love it!
