Talking TOM

Assalammualaikum ,

Sharp 10pm .

Tonight will be the last night being an owl.

No more stay- up watching late night movie.

Career mode turn on .

Rania sleep early tonight, 9 pm shut eye. Full stop.

I got no time to choose and  edit our pictures  for Journey to the North's entry .I'm very busy .In the evening i occupied myself  reading , counting , playing , with Rania..i will be busy with work soon and rania will busy in her school and new friends- to-be .yay....in sha ALLAH

Gently reminder : this entry is all about rania .No motive at all.

No words can i described how lucky i am to have an adorable, clever , beautiful daughter.
Praised to ALLAH swt .
Sometimes she can be funny .annoying . bossy . and charming too.

 she thought ajf and i share the same name , baba is jazz lee,and mommy is jazz lee too. lol .funny aite ?
I'm bit curious today , rania call me mama instead of mommy .At first i just ignored because sometimes she likes to call  queen ,princess mommy ,or mom .but it getting weird when she keep calling mama  , the whole day and i notice she is not in *role-play * with her doll .

So.i asked her .

mommy : rania who is mama?
rania : mama ? you 're mama.
mommy : ermmm i'm mommy .
rania : owh i know that .( her favourite answer : miss know everythings phew )
mommy : then? why you call  me mama ?
Rania : you're my mom.your name is mommy.
mommy :.....................^ _ ^ .( confuse  )

what my name again ?

she started to think too much like her old man ( ajf ) now  , ya ALLAH swt i 'm so glad  if rania follow all her father's intelligence , skills , funny , Mr know-everything but not the Grey hair please  .blink eyes twice .hurmhurm ...
Other than creative idea , She now started to be ermmm what should i said .hmmmmmmmmm annoying ? too harsh ?
Bad behaviour is coming to pay a visit , laugh at mommy when i break the glass, give such an attitude whenever you ask for help ;

Mommy : rania , can u help mommy please .
Rania : NO ,thank you mom. I'm busy (while doing mess at her room )


Rania brand new excuses whenever we ask for help

Rania : I'm dizzy mom !

i just don't know how to react? angry? smile ? shout ? scream.speechless. I don't know who to blame , all day long she just with me and her father .no friends .TV show ? i guess yay , but she only been watching Disney Junior channel ( where she learn new English  words ) and Tv oasis to watch her favourite show : *Syoknya Mengaji *. After had a short discussion ,we ( ajf and i) strongly agree rania's behaviour is normal at her age .Child development stages ,peak time where she combined all beautiful & bad things in her surrounding to build the strong character .

 She loves Talking Tom so much , and started to sing along with Angela : the female cat in Talking TOm series .She even follow them , be a parrot ! follow each words , i think is rude but AJF thought is a cute and adorable furthermore he said  she only 4 years old .hurmmmm... see i told you is not easy to be a parent .Mental emotional pressured  to teach and to  be a good example for our children .

sigh .

Well, by the way  other than her un -expected behaviour , I'm proud to say rania now is really big girl she can even choose her own meals and drinks. 

 * I'm big girl mom , no more Disney channel ,i want owh my English ( it means TViQ channel ) .

* I love the cooking show ( food network or AFC ) : i want to cook like mommy * .

 She is such a darling except her *parrot * manner. I really can't tolerate with it!

rania : today / playing *play doh* / gift from her paternal aunt : Aunt farhana / with love

i love you no matter what because i trust every child is unique in his or her own way .be a solehah girl ya sweety .In sha ALLAH .


Fake Lashes? Yay or Nay ?

Assalammualaikum ,

gentle reminder , i'm not an  ANGEL who knows everything , just to share my  thoughts and knowledge i've learned .

Have you ever worn fake lashes ? you already know fake lashes is *haram * but dream to have long and curly eyelashes ? 

Frankly speaking , I've worn fake lashes for 3 times in my life .

1) Before i become Mrs AJF : Photo shoot with Nur Magazine .I  still remembered that funny day , it was a tiring day for unprofessional model like me .I had to stand still for 5 minutes just to get beautiful pose , it took whole day to capture 6 pictures with 6 set of dresses and one thing about the fake lashes , the photographer keep saying to me : eyes , your eyes .eyes wide open . shut , is not me tho , it's  the lashes .stuck on my eyes....blink blink blink like giraffe.

2) My wedding .Okay this is really out of my control ( alasan ) call me naive , stupid , or what so ever . I knew about the eyebrow trimming , and yes i did special request to my Make-up Artist not to trim it .:) But the lashes ? nope , actually is not only once ? 3 times : solemnization , wedding reception for girl and boy 's side..hurm is it consider as 5 times worn lashes ?   My wedding MUA said my lashes is short and so -not -curvy hhahahhaha direct translation your eye lashes is like elephant 's lashes in Sesame street 

okay maybe not short : is long and not curvy ..see..
and My MUA try to change me to  this : 

see the difference ? i told ya...

and the last time i worn eye lashes , only lasts for 15 minutes .ahahaha

3) one fine day in 2010 or 2011 , seriouslyi bought the fake lashes with the glue and keep it for so long until i brought to my working place and tara ,...i worn it after work , konon nye wants to have a nice pleasant dinner with AJF ...until he laughed and says , sayang u totally looks so *heavy* .what ?? yeah me to hahahha i felt so heavy , and i felt so mean to stress up my beautiful eyes .and it so hairy too...

The End .

I've read a lots of article , watching in You -tube about the fake lashes , and now i'm strongly agree and understand.

Wearing a FAKE Lashes is HARAM !

This is  one of article I've read : 

Rasulullah s.a.w. menegaskan: “Allah melaknat wanita yang menyambung rambutnya dan meminta rambutnya disambung.” [Shahih al-Bukhari, no: 5934]

Maksud menyambung rambut ialah mengambil rambut wanita lain untuk disambung ke rambut sendiri. Ia dilarang, sekalipun sekadar hajat atau permintaan untuk melakukannya.

Selari dengan berkembangnya teknologi manusia, pada masa kini teknik menyambung rambut telah diganti dengan teknik memakai rambut palsu. Namun dari sudut hukum, ia tetap sama yakni ia dilarang. Juga berdasarkan kaedah qiyas (analogi), maka dilarang juga memakai bulu palsu sama ada di kening atau kelopak mata. Tidak dibezakan sama ada rambut palsu atau bulu palsu itu adalah daripada makhluk lain atau buatan manusia, ia tetap dilarang.

Namun para ilmuan Islam memberi pengecualian kepada larangan di atas, iaitu bagi mereka yang mengalami kecacatan, penyakit atau kemalangan yang menyebabkan kehilangan rambut, kening atau bulu mata. Bagi kes-kes terpencil ini, dibolehkan memakai rambut palsu serta kening atau bulu mata palsu

Clear? No more fake eye lashes .For all single lady , don;t ruin your big day when your wedding MUA ( Make-up Artist ) says u have short , not curvy lashes, and you will dead if not apply the fake eye lashes .This is the solution : 

This is happened  not long ago at my favourite shopping mall in Jeddah ,we stop by to the Make-up shop arab brand : Mikyajy owh my, i really love to see their promoters ,masyallah too beautiful ermm there are also one or two girls who really look like clown .hurm trying too hard i guess hhhhe.Yes Kingdom now so open-minded there are lots of female promoter and easy pessy for us to shop there .i mean saudi women .:P .. Still remembered my experience in Sephora Jeddah , pity the male promoter keep busy explaining  all about the eye shadow and concealer.I didn;t listen and give attention on him at all and walk away  , all i know is i can;t imagine a tough man ( he looks like body builder-man ) , straight  explain to me about the eye shadow.hahhahaah .
Okay back to the promoter in Mikyajy ,i was attended by one young girl who i adore , masyallah her eye lashes wow....so long, curvy ,black and mmmmmmmm beautiful .her makeup is natural but she gave full attention on her gorgeous eyes.i did asked her whether she worn fake lashes ( i know i'm stupid ) , mostly middle east women have beautiful eyes .I shouldn't ask .shuttt....:P Being a good promoter ( she  speaks english very well than others promoter ), taraaa.... she introduce the new MIkyajy product of Mascara ,effect exactly like wearing fake eye lashes, Mascara brings you length , an0ther adds some curls , gets you volume .Finish it all off with a sweep of waterproof sealant .All together 4 types of MAscara .

This product made from Italy and she really confident (tanpa was-was) is HALAL .
Only the tin (box) is made from ChIna .hahah 

( you really have to be careful if u shop in Saudi , check first made from where ? mostly their product is from China ) 
okay u guys may say ,what? 4 types of mascara ? expensive ? wasting time but seriously ? so much better than tanggung dosa wearing fake eye lashes ,which is  clearly HARAM !
And i know we don't have Mikyajy shop in Malaysia , guess what? you guys can mix any brand and find the solution for your own * future * long curvy volume *eye lashes.superb.
we've  tried the mascara on my sister for her annual dinner November last year , but i couldn't find any close-up pictures ( dinner : they pay attention more to the dress heheh ) .so i 'm really *rajin* to show to you guys .tara ....

my naked eyes : 

this is my usual normal makeup day out , just a eyeliner ,and layer of mascara .

after using Mascara 4 type ,Mikyajy : 

see ? not exactly 100% like fake eye lashes but i'm proud to shout ,yes this is my original eye lashes with little help of miss mascara (",) .and more easier when prayer times ,just remove it ,  take wudu' ,solat and apply back the 4 steps :) DONE.no need to bring glue in your handbag .
No more heavy *things* hanging over my eyes .

Blueberry Custard Tart


Just want to share our Tea Time Dessert yesterday , sunday. 

Blueberry Custard Tart 

This time is an instant dessert ,it's only took approximately 10-15 minutes to prepared it .Why i call it instant as i already made the pastry ..ermm like 2 weeks ago , i 'm not gonna to spend a day long , messy and tiring day with the pastry and the custard in the same day .I love so much doing this ,you can just made it and keep in airtight tupperware up to 2-4 weeks .Just re- heat  in the oven  before you fill it with your own favourite filling .:) 

So there we go the recipes i used for the pastry : ( from my mum ) 

The Ingredients
200 gm Butter 
80 gm Icing Sugar
360 gm  Superfine Flour ( u can also use All purposes flour ) 
1 Egg 
1 tsp of vanilla essence 

1) Preheat oven 170 degree C 
2) Combines the butter in the bowl with sugar  and beat until light and fluffy .
3)Gradually add the egg, beating just until incorporated.
4) Add the flour mixture all at once and mix just until it forms a dough :) ball.
5) cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes or just until firm.
6) Lightly prick bottom of pastry with the tines of a fork ( this will prevent dough from puffing up as it bakes )
7) Bakes for 10 minutes or until dry or lightly golden brown .

   obviously you also need the tart mould .,you can get 5 pcs from MYR 3.50 ( around that price.) 

 Rania and i bake it last 2 weeks ago ,and yesterday we made the easy and quick tart filling , for a lazy mom like me .

What do you need for the filling : 

Fresh Blueberry where u can get from tesco /Giant /Cold Storage store 
Custard flour 1 1/2 tbs 
1/ 2 cup caster sugar 
4 Egg yolks 
3  cup milk 
Non- dairy whipping cream 1 cup or as you wish .hehehe 
1/2 cup all purposes flour 
30 gm butter 
1 tsp vanilla  essence 

How : 
1) Sieve 
 all flour ( custard flour and all purposes flour ) with sugar .
2) In the same bowl , add egg and 1 cup of milk .Whisk until incorporated ,then add another 2 cup of milk .Add vanilla essence .
3) Heat the mixture just boils and then allow to simmer until thickened.
4) When the mixture thickened , remove from heat .Add butter and stir until mixture smooth and shiny . 
5) Keep in the fridge for a while ,
6 ) when u ready to serve , whisk whipping cream until fluffy and add the custard mixtures together .

the custard filling.
please kindly ignore the cream puff ( its really nice tho : yummmy dip dip dip and eat ,heaven ) 

How ? : 
To make a simple and beautiful delicious tart is,  one blueberry in the pastry , add the custard filling ,and  one more blueberry on  top....tada..............

Besides my Blueberry custard tart , we also had my sister ina 's Chocolate Ganache Cream puff....hurm drooling ...

Look at this cream puffs..perfect and beautiful with the chocolate ganache,..yummy .

5 minutes ..and duuummm all gone in our tummy ..: 

ok then , got to have my beauty sleep now .Will update more tomorrow when i'm free 
in Sha ALLAH .

Assalammualaikum , 

Hye pumpkins , 

Truly sorry a bit chaos lately to a *nomad * wife like me , been in KL for 2 weeks and i'm back .AJf will be here until monday so let's Blog-ing whilst ajf taking his *handsome* nap .:P .I can smell hurmmmm yummmy cream puff from mak's kitchen tho , owh can't wait to eat it yay ...is kak ina's turn to make dessert .( sejak bila ntah ada turn-turn pun tak sure ) 

ok then ,i still have a few story to share in sha ALLAh will find one nice day to update about it .For now let's concentrate more about FOOD . 

After we came  back from Padang Besar journey in perlis ( which i will update soon in future ) , we planned to have seafood dinner for the Birthday boy , Mr ajf .We are so lucky that the restaurant is  less than 5 minutes walking distance from our Hotel .don't want to take any risks , we booked and ordered the food 2 hours before,furthermore it is the weekend and i heard LInda Restaurant is the most famous seafood in Kuala perlis , better to be prepared with the crowd .

hahahaha seafood dinner for the Birthday boy who is allergic to seafood ? haha great , but no one can resist the delicious ikan jenahak , sweet creamy crabs , crunchy prawns ...kan kan? so for this time AJF * melanggar * pantang nye .:) Alhamdulillah nothing really bad happened .

okay, i'll stop babbling and let's enjoy the food...pictures of course .

2 jugs of watermelon and fresh orange.

TOmyam for 3 persons , melimpah-limpah udang ....(nasib baik order for 3 person ja )

 hurmmm look at the extremely beautiful and yummy crabs ...:) hurmm drooling .

All together dinner for 6 adults is MYR 210 plus the beverages .(",).Cheap right?
and my rania ? she not a seafood fan like her uncle ..

Satay ayam for rania :) her favourite.

Sesiapa yang ke perlis , i strongly recommended this restaurant LINDA IKAN BAKAR near Kuala Perlis with delicious , fresh seafood with reasonable price .:).. definitely will go again

till then .

Journey to the north : Bukit Kayu HItam

Assalammualaikum , 

Day 1 : Part 1 

Malam -malam baru datang rajin nak meng-update blog ,kalau siang ada je aktiviti especially semua ada di sini kecuali my little baby brother .Actually we all plan nak ke Pulau Langkawi memandangkan sudah lama our family tak ke sana , ermm last dalam 1994 rasanya .pergi sendiri visit my aunt ada la few times but bukan makan angin la :0 so we postpone Langkawi   next family trip , Jom layan Perlis Indera Kayangan .

Perlis ,approximately 2 hours drive from my parents 's house , ermm ( will double confirm with ajf as i slept all the way to perlis hahahahhah ) , memang dekat .dulu time both sister belajar sana memang kerap la ke Perlis, lepas tu memang tak ingat bila last pegi .Bonda yang beria-ria ajak ke Padang Besar and Wang Kelian i mean 1day family trip la  kiranya pagi pegi petang balik.

My sister ,kak ina penganjur acara , cadangkan to stay kat Perlis for 2 days , saturday and sunday ,jalan puas-puas makan puas puas dan rest puas -puas ,AT least tak la rush sangat nak drive balik ke kedah .

There we go , after homemade breakfast  nasi goreng at home ,....with 2 cars , broooommmm..brommmmm
our first destination : BUKIT KAYU HITAM 

 Bukit Kayu Hitam is Kedah 's main border town on the Malaysia -Thailand Border.
Kali terakhir ke sini bersama family 1992, wuarghhh lama tu hahaha my brother pun takdak lagi , ( brother - oct 1992 ) .Memang banyak yang berubah , dan tak happening macam dulu kala.Mungkin orang lebih ke Padang Besar atau Wang Kelian.

Sesampai di sini , kita akan melalui satu gerbang besar , ada laluan kereta dan laluan pejalan kaki .
memang terlalu banyak kereta last saturday al maklum la cuti panjang ramai yang ambil kesempatan ber-holiday kan .

But we all membuat keputusan untuk parking di luar dan berjalan kaki masuk ke Bazzar BUkit Kayu HItam , For those yang tak de kudrat berjalan dan sanggup la stuck dalam kereta berjam-jam lamanya mahu pun bercadang ke Thailand , di sarankan menaiki kenderaan dan melalui laluan kereta ya .:) lagipun untuk mengelakkan ketiadaan parking di dalam .

Ramai photographer holiday kali ini ye semua gile gambar :P

Ini laluan kenderaan , as usual pihak immigration checked our IC , no passport required kecuai kepada sesiapa yang nak ke Thailand la ye .Tapi kalau setakat shopping duty Free di KOmpleks Bukit Kayu Hitam , they just check our MyCard je .

Ini laluan pejalan kaki yang gigih untuk berjalan kaki ke kompleks Bukit Kayu HItam ye .Sangat di saran kan memakai baju yang nipis ( jangan la jarang sangat ye sehingga namapak badan pula ) , kasut yang comfortable , dan paling penting stroller .dah berhabuk stroller rania , tapi trip kali ini memang perlukan stroller tak sanggup la  nak dukung rania all the time .

kaunter immigration untuk para pejalan kaki sekalian .

Gigih nya berjalan kaki sempat lagi memetik punat di kamera.:P 

Still ada shopping Mall Duty Free The zon , tapi ermmmmm bak kata Ajf sama je harga nya hahahahha and Bazar ? hurmm menghampakan ..sungguh tak tipu ni , tak payah pegi .Memang membuang kudrat yang ada memecah peluh .hahahhhahha tak banyak kedai yang buka , takde buah-buahan yang di jual , takda toto hahaha ...kalau ada pun tak da choice .

Jadi pulang la kami dengan perasaan yang menghampakan .:) lol ...drama sangat kan..

dan seperti awal , nak balik pun kena melalui immigration ye , check MyCard takut-takut la you orang Thailand.Btw before i lupa di dalam kompleks tu punya la banyak parking area , tapi tu la nak masuk melalui jammed di counter laluan kenderaan tu yang tak sanggup.

okay guys really need to sleep , will continue in sha ALLAH soon .
our next destination ke Padang Besar ,Perlis 

tata..Good night darlings.
