Updates !

Assalamu’alaikum lovelies !
Hi. :)

How is everyone doing ?
I can’t believe that it’s already 16th Ramadhan 1435H.
Are we satisfied with what we have done for the past 16 days ? Have we satisfied Allah ?

Alhamdulillah, Khayla turned 3 last Friday according to the Hijrah calendar (13 Ramadhan), but her actual birth date is 13th August 2014, so we’re waiting until next month to get a cake. I am thinking of a Frozen themed one, because she’s Anna and I am Elsa (and Ayah is Olaf ‘gemuk’, tsk tsk), ya know ? Hehe.

Any suggestions on where I can get it from ?

Oh boy, I can’t believe she’s 3 !
She is sooooo talkative. Mr. Sunshine claims she got that trait from me, pfffftt. :-p

I have been sending her to a nursery since April this year.
Which means she is no longer being taken care of by the babysitter in front of our house because she would cry every single morning when I dropped her off. It was torturous to see her like that every morning. I would sometimes cry all the way to work too ! Tsk tsk.

But Alhamdulillah, she does not cry in the mornings anymore. Well, there are the occasional emo sessions but it is a whole lot better than crying EVERY DAY.
She is learning quite a lot from the nursery. New songs, new doas, new words. Most of them are in Malay lah. She knows the doa makan & meaning, doa tidur & meaning, doa selepas makan, ayat Kursi and she loves to berzikir. She insists that I play my zikir CD in the car every day. Alhamdulillah.

My only worry is that she not speaking English. Yes she does know some English words, but 80% of her vocabulary is in Malay. I am not trying to say that English is more superior than Malay, but I grew up speaking English at home so it’s only natural that I would want her to be able to speak in English too. The Malay language is not an issue, because it’s our mother tongue, pasti boleh cakap melayu punya. :)
Is it too late to get her to learn English ?
I would appreciate any tips. :)

I wanted to blog about my new workplace but I think I have written too much already hehe.
I guess I’ll save that for another post. :)

Until then, bye !

xoxo
