It's 31/December/2020, the last day of 2020.

Just like that, finally, we come to the end of 2020. Wow!!

This year has been…. I don’t know! I can't say it amazing as I think it quite bumpy journey and I have learned so many hard lessons in my life ( every year is the same haha).

So, here is my HIGHLIGHTS this year.

  • I’m pregnant my first child ( weird enough, I missed being pregnant haha)
  • I experienced work from home ( I've been wished for this before, nah…mendapat!, not bad).
  • I experienced maternity leave ( It's not a holiday y'all, its preparation/training for another permanent job as a mother)
  • I experienced giving birth for the first time ( now I can say, its not so scary after all)
  • I experienced how to breastfeeding for the first time ( I think I should try better next time).
  • I experienced postpartum (it's really scary and killing me!, thanks to my friend, Maz and my husband for being there for me!)
  • I experienced berpantang ( I didn't wash my hair for 1 month, gross! but yes this happened!)
  • I experienced being a working mum ( I can say, its really really hard but I choose this path)
  • I tried my best to do my new tasks ( I really try my very best but maybe its not for me)
  • I finally have the courage to make a change in my career ( I really really scared to make a change actually but I determined to make a change, pray for me!)
  • I admit I still have a problem with my financial management ( I really want to get out from this)
  • I admit I’m still cengeng with my mum ( I still cry when my mum left me after my pantang, I make a post about it  >>> HERE.)
  • I still have my baby weight body, I need to get rid of this a.s.a.p. This evening I will start to go for exercise.

2020 has been so many ups and down but its AMAZING because we got our first child, Karl Sibal.

It’s really changed our life.

We don’t sleep like we sleep before.But, sometimes tersleep lebih hahha

We don’t go out like we go out before. Always want to come back home early and asap because I miss my baby.

Some of the things still the same because not everything can change overnight and not mean to be to change.

For this last day of 2020, I just feel thankful for,

  • still alive well and enough ( even I had so many thing going on)
  • still survived because of God with me.
  • I have my family with me.
  • I have my friend, Wiwie helped me for taking care of our baby. 
  • I can VC my family at kampung

As 2020 become to end, I make a bold decision in my life that going to change my 2021.

The future is uncertain but I believe and have faith in God and do my best toward uncertainties.

For now, let’s be grateful and enjoy life.

To 2020,

thank you so much for “come to my life” and I able to experience you. Never ever think that you will be so different than the previous year. We experienced many new things.

To my readers,

thank you so much for reading my blog.

I hope you learn something useful from my blog or you feel a good vibes here. This is the place I love to write and be so frank or honest about what I have experienced in my life. I hope you enjoy read and learn something for your life.

As I mentioned on my previous post, I revamp my blog to become parenting blog. But, non parent readers don't worry, I still write about life experience that everyone can learn from.

I hope you have a good experience in 2020 and if its bad, let's do our best in 2021.

Before I end this post, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 in advance!

See you next year! ( virtually here).

Sincerely and full of love and blessing to you,


Highlights of 2020

31 December 2020

Hello there!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

How are you? I hope you doing well and safe wherever you are.

Before 2020 end, I would like to announce that, I'm revamping my blog ( merombak blog saya).

As you know, my blog is all rojak topics before, ada fashion, ada food, ada travel and etc. 

So, next year which is lusa, I would like to revamp it and focus on one niche/topic which is blog about PARENTING. Start from my pregnancy journey and tips, my deliver and labor, raising my son and our life as a new family. Also, sharing tips and review and tools that can make your life as a new parent easier. 

I still going to talk about other stuff ( don't worry non-parent readers) but most of the time it will be all about parenting thingy. No worries, eventually you will become one and hopefully, you can come back to my blog...hehe.

Why Parenting blog?

We just become a parent this year and we kind of clueless parent ( our first time) and we have many things to learn and looking for a guide. Most of the time, I'm googling or asking friends about what to do, which product is okay or not and how to do that and many things. Banyak bertanya jugalah...

There are many parenting blogs on the internet but mostly western people blogs. I never found one particular blog that blogging about Malaysian parenting that shares about their personal experience, especially from Borneo. So, that's why I think I should do this. 

Oh ya, if you know Malaysia parenting blog, please do comment and share with me. I would like to read and follow. 

I would like to share my personal experience on becoming a parent and the first time parent will be not so clueless and make the parenting journey a little bit easier. I can't magically make it easy for you but at least, make it little easier and most importantly, you don't feel alone in this new journey.

I will share the interesting topics via

+ Blog ( here)

+ Podcasts ( Spotify)

+ Youtube 

+ SocMed ( Facebook, Instagram & Twitter)

Looking forward to embarking this new journey with you.

See you on the next posts.



[Announcement ] Revamp my blog

30 December 2020

It's midnight and I just can't sleep.

My life is under turbulence lately.

I make a very big decision in my life. I feel really scared! 

I still try to embrace this change but I can't really take it well, I've been so messed up lately and a lot of things does not go well. My mind keeps thinking about many things and what-ifs things not go as I planned. I had a sleepless night and I wish I can sleep peacefully.

But, one thing I want to remind myself,

"Change is scary but stay at my comfort zone forever is scarier".

I will embrace this change process and be strong and move on.

I can't share details about what happens now but I will share it soon or later.


Be strong and move on

Hi there!

How are you? I hope you're doing fine and healthy and safe always.

When I think of this article's title, I just feel wow! almost a decade already I'm working. Time really flies very fast and there are so many changes I witnessed and feel. As per usual, I love to share my life experience and this what my blog about. All about sharing life experiences.

I started working on 3 October 2011, I still remember my first day look like. I was nervously getting to know everyone because it's my first job. I still remember I wore an all-black outfit.

Before I started my work, I had a rough starting point actually. I can't find the "bilik sewa" before I go to work but thanks to God, I found one right before I enter work. On my first day at work, I tumpang one of the same workplace with me because I don't have a car. For the first month, I just tumpang some of the colleagues that working at same workplace. That time, there's no e-hailing ( maybe exist but for my side, I don't know about it). After I got my first salary plus with my dad support, I go bought my first car and this time also my first ever big money transcation. I never make a big transcition before and I think this is the starting point to make a big transcations. 

- Be good or at least know your senior at college/university

Most of the people that help me at my beginning are my senior at college. Actually, I don't really know them since they are far different batch than me.

- Enjoy the rough starting point

Starting a journey is not an easy one. There are many obstacles but I can say, enjoy it and learn from it.

- Have a career plan/career vision

I don't really have this from the beginning because I don't have any idea. I think I got it quite late but there's no late in this life.

- While you at it, be good and responsible for your job.

I am not perfectly good and responsible for my job, sometimes I make mistakes and seems not doing my job but I really tried my best to give my everything.

- Enjoy meeting many types of people

Everyone is not same, semua ada perangai tersendiri. So, you can't control others behaviours so enjoy meeting them. If there something you can learn from them, learn and if there something that not good enough about them, if you can tell them, just tell them. If no, then just ignore it and go forward.

- Have life goals and determine to achieve them

I had achieved most of my life goals this decade. I get my boyfriend, my fiance', my husband, the same person lah. I mean, I got to experience how bercinta cintun, getting engaged and getting married. Also, I become a mother too. 
On the other side, I bought my first house and hopefully to pay off my first car loan May 2021.

This is the lessons that I can think of now. I will keep updating this if I can come out with many. I wrote this article at 6am haha. I am really thankful for this almost one-decade life experiences. 

And, I am ready to embark a new life journey for the next decade. I will share about this at a different post.

For now, peace!


After almost a decade of working, what I have learned?

25 December 2020

It's our first Christmas as a parent. I won't say anything but Wow! I'm thankful and feel different too. 

What's the difference?

1. Need to follow our son's schedule, no more our schedule.

2. Need to prepare his milk and all his need when we go out. Bring his bag everywhere.

3. He will be sleepy at any time he wants. He just doesn't care about you...haha.

4. No more going out during the night for celebration. We had limited time to go out for celebration and no more night celebration as our baby needs to sleep.

It's really different than before.

But, we are thankful for able to celebrate Christmas healthy and happy. I am really happy because I can celebrate with my husband and my son. What really matters for me.



Our first Christmas as a parent

26 December 2020

This year is our son's first Christmas.
Back in before I gave birth, we already planned that we will go back for Christmas this year and do thanksgiving party for my son at my side and my husband's side too. But, we never ever imagine this year Christmas will be like this. We can't go back to our hometown due to several reasons and the main reason is due to COVID-19 pandemic. We are stuck in Semenanjung Malaysia.
To be really honest, I feel really sad due to this. I want my son to know where he comes from and gets to know our big family at Sabah and Sarawak. But, who am I to make everything goes like I planned. I am not a God. I tried to not to feel sad and not to think too much about this because there's nothing I can do about this now. So, to make me happy, I do what I love which is take photos of my son's first Christmas. Here you go!

Just like that, the first Christmas is gone! 
I hope next year, we will able to celebrate with our family at Sabah and Sarawak.

Hi semua!

Apa khabar semua? Saya harapkan kamu sihat- sihat sahaja dimanapun kamu berada.

Biasanya di hujung tahun, acara pertunangan/ perkahwinan selalu diadakan. Saya rasakan ia merupakan acara "wajib" ada semasa bercuti hujung tahun.

Untuk melaksanakan acara besar ini tidaklah mudah, ini adalah berdasarkan pengalaman saya sendiri. Saya bertanya kepada yang bertunang sebelum ini sama ada mereka ada template untuk flow acara pertunangan? Kebanyakan tidak menyimpan, saya faham juga, siapa mahu simpan kan?

Jadi, saya rasakan saya mahu membantu setiap pasangan yang akan bertunang dengan sediakan FREE template untuk flow acara pertunangan.

Anda boleh download dengan PERCUMA dengan klik link dibawah dan print untuk digunakan.

FREE Template acara pertunangan

Untuk yang beragama Kristian SIB Sarawak, saya juga ada borang pertunangan, kamu boleh download dari link dibawah:

Saya berharap template ini dapat membantu kamu dalam merancang acara pertunangan kamu dan pasanagan.

Happy engaged!
