Tips Beli Handbags on Sale

Salam Monday lovelies :) Hopefully it's a good start of the week for everyone ! Kak Erin dah nampak dah minggu ini bakal hectic and busy.. but it's ok. Just move on and enjoy every moment while you can. Kalau stress stress sangat, banyak terapi boleh buat..such as online shopping!

Siapa yang tak suka sale atau jualan murah? Baik mereka yang berduit mahupun tidak, things on sale are always appealing! Lebih-lebih branded items yang telah lama menjadi idaman hati. Betul tak? Barang-barang seperti baju, beg tangan dan kasut merupakan 3 jenis barangan yang sering menjadi tarikan utama ramai wanita. Oleh yang demikian, entri kali ini khusus untuk mereka yang menggemari koleksi beg tangan dan ingin mengetahui apakah tips-tips yang patut diikuti ketika membeli handbags on sale. It’s time to be a smart consumer!



1.      Set your budget

Walaupun handbags on sale selalunya dijual pada harga yang lebih murah daripada biasanya, namun tidak semestinya anda boleh membeli secara membuta-tuli. Anda perlu set dahulu budget yang ingin anda belanjakan. Jalan selamat, asingkan wang siap-siap dan jangan bawa kad kredit anda!

2.      Set your aim

Hanya beli handbag yang telah lama anda idamkan sahaja. Don’t simply go and buy beg-beg tangan yang anda fikirkan ‘Oh, yang ni nampak cantik juga, dan yang itu pon’ tanpa anda ketahui bilakah anda akan menggunakan beg tangan tersebut.

3.      Buy the quality ones

Pastikan pembelian anda itu betul-betul berbaloi dengan membeli branded handbags on sale sahaja. Ia lebih tahan lama dan anda juga menikmati penjimatan yang hebat pada masa yang sama.

4.      Don’t think twice


Set your budget, get the good ones and make the payment. Jangan pikir dua tiga kali dan akhirnya anda akan membeli koleksi handbags yang percayalah, akan anda simpan begitu sahaja. 


Sounds simple kan, but kadang-kadang kita terlepas pandang. Oklah, till next entry. Daa!

Sekolah darjah satu

Ha kan dah kata..rindu blog kan. Hamik kau entry hari-hari :P

Hadif Aryan turned 5 years old last January. Dia lahir 8 January 2011, so kalau ikutkan tahun umur he will enter standard 1 in 2018. Tapi aku baru tahu, untuk January babies yang lahir before 12 January, we can apply for standard 1 masa umur dia 6 tahun. Kira awal setahun lah. If you think about it, memang bagus pun cenggini sebab January babies memang boleh dikatakan besar dan matured. This is what I've seen kat kelas Aryan sekarang. Bila dia bergaul dengan bebudak 5 tahun yang lain, aku rasa dia macam Abang Long. So if there is an option untuk masuk sekolah awal, why not? Provided that we have to assess and make an informed decision yang anak kita tu dah ready or not to enter primary school. As parents, we should know our kids' capability kan.

Untuk sessi persekolahan 2017 dan 2018, registration is already opened since March 1st. Until 30 April 2016. Registration can be done online. Lepas register online, print registration form itu, bring it to school that you selected with the required documents. Untuk apply masuk sekolah awal setahun for January babies yang lahir before 12 January, nanti pada 1 June kena pergi Pejabat Pendidikan Negeri untuk isi borang. Kalau ada kekosongan, permohonan akan diluluskan. Camtu lah proses dia lebih kurang.

We are looking at option to send him to private schools as well. Dah ada banyak pilihan sekarang and the price is not so bad actually. Sama je mcm harga hantar pergi nursery or playschool. Seriously.

We did survey schools around Bangi and Nilai sahaja sebab mestilah nak yang dekat dengan rumah juga. And the ones which provide daycare service. Most of the schools that we surveyed, habis sekolah around 3 PM. Siapa pulak nak pergi amik Aryan kalau dia balik pukul 3.

Apa yang kami dah shorlisted are Al-Amin Nilai and Sri Ayesha Islamic School Bangi. If you ask me my preference now, I am prone to send him to Sri Ayesha. 

Sekolah ni ada sekolah rendah sampai sekolah menengah. Guna syllabus KBSR integrated with Islamic syllabus by JAIS. Fees dia seperti di bawah.

1. Annual Material fees [range RM600 – RM 950]
2. Annual Tuition fee [range RM3,600 – RM6,000]
3. Food (Snack and lunch) –  based on the caterer’s cost

Actually before this, we surveyed juga Greenview yang baru bukak kat bangi. But the fee is not affordable untuk kami. Hekhek. Logic lah sebab sekolah itu International school. Guna Cambridge syllabus. Ada few schools lagi tak habis survey like Adni kat Bangi juga ada this one Integrated school I forgot its name. Will update later.

Ok back to work. Daa!

Konnichiwa !

No, I was not back from Japan vacation. I am here doing nothing, waiting for job placement. *Err very sensitive issue to talk about now*

By the way.. it's my first post for 2016! Haha. Luckily i still remember the blogspot password. Duuhh. So many things to share but I forgot how to blog already. Sigh. Quick ones :

1) I cannot run from updating about this strong little man of mine- Hadif Aryan. 2015 was a very tough one for him, and of course for me and MNI as well. But Alhamdulillah, Allah chose us for His own reasons. After series of surgeries, trying out a lot of trial and errors, Alhamdulillah Aryan is back on track. He started going to school again in 2016, 99% recovering that's what I could say for now. Still need close observations especially during this very hot climate. So far we stick to this treatment for his seizures -
  • Homeopathy - treatment with Dr Suryakathun
  • Young Living Essential Oils 
  • Food supplement - honey, habbatussauda, aloe vera gel, kampuchea tea, al-manna
  • No processed food, trying as best as we could to go for all organic including chicken, vege etc. For this reason, our groceries shopping shifted to Jaya Grocer or Cold Storage due to varieties of organic stuff. And yeahhhhh that means lagilah bnyk perbelanjaan nya.
  • Enough rest and sleep

Alhamdulillah, so far these work on him. He is 6 months seizure-free. I pray everyday that he will fully recover and his condition will remain as today if not better. Alhamdulillah his development is progressign well despite of cuti sekolah almost setahun. He now can read Peter Jane books and also Iqra' book 6. MNI tengah struggling to teach him tajwid dengung etc. and we discovered both of us are in need of cikgu tajwid as well. Hekhek.

2) Khalif pun Alhamdulillah baik-baik belaka. The only thing that worries me is budak sorang ni is too clingy, takut orang and tidak pandai bersosial seperti Aryan when he was at this age. Pastilah sebab Khalif duduk dengan bibik all day long. Takde kawan. Kesian dia. So we plan to send him to playschhol starting next year. 3 tahun dah besar juga kan.

3) Work wise, maybe you've already heard that Oil & Gas industry recently got hit by the oil price crisis. Of course everyone in the industry got affected. As for my company, I could not say much - everyone is not certain about their job now. Everything will be answered this Friday after official letters are released. So tunggukan aja.

4) And ohhh, one thing to celebrate is I lost 4kgs this year. Haha. I started Aerodance class end of last year and I am now a gym freak. Hoho. Makan juga tengah berpada-pada. Overall, I just want to live a healthy lifestyle. That's all.

Oklah. itu sahaja setakat ini. Now I feel like rindunya berblogging. Hekhekk. Daaa!

Endoscopy and now colonoscopy

Hati mak pecah lagi sekali. Sebab anak masuk hospital lagi. Sobs.

Well we were scheduled to be admitted actually. So hati kebal sikit sebab dah mentally prepared. Sempat buat doa selamat dan makan-makan raya 2 hari sebelum admitted.

Why admitted again? 

Oh sebab perut dan usus Aryan masih belum sembuh sepenuhnya. He had tremendous improvement tapi at least once a week mesti ada episod sakit perut yang sampai dia merengkot tahan sakit, muntah-muntah dan tak boleh makan dan minum langsung. Hati ibu mana yang boleh berdiam diri melihat keadaan anak begitu.

Punca sakit perut dan usus ? As for now, bermula dari alahan ubat. But according to Dr Nazrul, sepatutnya kesan alahan itu tidak akan prolong until 6 month! Yes you read me right, 6 bulan. Dr Nazrul prescribed 'Nexium' a kind of ubat gastric to be taken twice a day. Aryan responded well to this meds tapi as I mentioned earlier, masih ada episod sakit perut kronik itu once a week at least.

That is why Dr Nazrul nak buat colonocopy to ensure and to see sendiri keadaan usus besar. Bahagian perut dah tengok through endoscopy which was conducted in June. Dari endoscopy tu yang conclude a severe gastritis. Colonoscopy ni buat sebab takut Aryan kena IBD - Irritable Bowel Disease.

Alhamdulillah the procedure went well. Aryan had to be full GA, kat situ hati mak pecah lagi. From the procedure Dr Nazrul nampak mmg ada inflammation dekat bahagian hujung usus besar but not that severe. To him kalau begitu level inflammation, tak mungkin Aryan punya sakit tu sangat teruk. So he decided to to CT Scan to evaluate bahagian usus kecil pula (colonoscopy tak dapat tengok bahagian usus kecil). From CT Scan, it shows that ada bahagian usus kecil yang bengkak dan nampak macam blockage.There you go, that might answer segala teka-teki selama ini.

Dr Nazrul kata kalau blockage, we may need to allow for a surgery to remove that blocked part. Hati pecah lagi sekali seboleh bolehnya taknak. Sebab kalau secara logiknya, if completely blockage, takkan Aryan bowel dia regular everyday? Shi shi poo poo semua normal.Kalau blockage bukan ke patut muntah hari-hari? Simple logical thinking from an engineer. Hekhek.

So after discussion, Dr Nazrul decided to do another test macam tracer test. Aryan needs to drink 'barium' pastu buat macam 4D seismic, amik gambar (x-ray) every 1 or 2 hours to see the movement through the digestive system. Results shoe mmg lambat sungguh movement itu, but the point is barium tu boleh lalu through that 'blockage'. Makanya Dr Nazrul kata tidaklah critical utk do the surgery now. Instead he advised to wait for the lab result next week so he can decide what medication to use to treat that inflammation and reduce the 'blockage' (Masa buat colonoscopy dapat ambil tissue usus tpt inflammation itu). Or even if a surgery is needed, apa apa pun tgu lab results tu dulu.Doakan yang terbaik utk putera hatiku.

By the way, nak meredah all the procedures, aku snagatlah cuak. Because semua itu membuatkan Aryan tertekan and emotionally unstable. Especially nak pasang drip, nak bagi sedation, full GA, even nurses asyik datang pun buat Aryan stress ya amat. Aku sangat lah kena menjaga emosi dia because any stressful event can trigger seizures on him. Sedih hati mak ni I dont know how to describe. Up to a point I feel so tired already to handle and manage semua ni, tetapi bila berlaku perkara-perkara keluar masuk hospital ni, macam aku kena start balik all over again. Astaghfirullah.. Cepat cepat istighfar. Bahawasanya setiap kesembuhan itu adalah milik dan izin Allah. Kalau kita usaha sekuat mana, rasa penat segunung pun, kalau Dia tidak izinkan sihat, maknanya Dia masih nak menguji hambaNya. Apa-apa pun kita kena yakin yang Dia mengetahui apa yang terbaik utk kita.

Ok nak cerita how did I manage Aryan emotion and to avoid seizures during hospital stay especially masa nak masuk and keluar OT ? Tadaaa ..... Joy and Brain Power essential oils! Alhamdulillah these oil worked well on him.

Macam mana guna? Brain Power on brain stem pagi dan malam. Pastu hari yg ada kena masuk OT, sapu brain power sekerap mungkin like every 15 mins. Joy pula on wrist and liver area juga every 15 mins. Aku siap bawak 2 EO ni masuk OT. Nurse and doctor pelik apesal bau wangi sangat ni (sebab dalam Joy ada rose, so mmg wangi). Tapi mak buat muka selenga ke apply the oils, aku dah tak kisah dah. So long tak kacau kerja doctor kan.

Right after he came out from OT

Brain Power and Joy


 Doakan kesembuhan sempurna buat Aryan. Semoga lab result next week takde apa yang serious. We plan to see doktor homeopathy this week. Later I'll update apa pandangan dia pula, inshaAllah.

YLEO simple facts



So now at least you know that not all essential oils can be categorized as therapeutic-grade. Some people asked me whether Young Living essential oils are just like aromatherapy oils. The answer is of course no.


Therefore, please ensure any essential oils that you choose is therapeutic grade. And you can expect effective results from the usage. And when you can get essential oils with relatively very very cheap or low price, then you may want to do more research about that oils. To be honest, I do not know about other essential oils, what's the difference as compared to Young Living etc.I did some googling before I decided to use Young Living. And Alhamdulillah diketemukan dengan orang-orang yang memang dah pergi ke ladang-ladang yg memproduce Young Living Essential Oils and they witnessed all the process dengan mata kepala. Dan juga based on testimonial depan mata. So from there aku rasa yakin utk guna. As easy as that. 

And ada juga yg question dah kenapa nak kena apply oils ni di tapak kaki. Bukan main jauh kot nak sampai ke organ and otak! Aku sendiri pun berasa sangat skeptical pada mulanya. I just could not brain why on earth kau nak letak minyak di kaki kalau kau sakit perut atau selsema. Contohnya. Tapi la ni aku dah malas nak fikir. Sebab janji ada kesan, Alhamdulillah. Ada sifu yang kata, kalau you are in doubt mana nak apply the YLEO, just apply saja di tapak kaki. You can never go wrong. Because the oils know where to go. Funny right? Tapi as I said, bila aku buat ada kesan, Alhamdulillah. 


And of course, please use with caution :)

Young Living Essential Oils - Digestive Energizer!

Hello awaks sekelian. Tgh panaskah cerita pasal kabinet dapur baru? Agaga. Aku ni dah stok tak kosa nak melayan. Tapi kalau tak layan, tidak akan ada apa-apa perubahan. Ini menentukan future anak cucu kita. Ok patriotik sungguh di situ. But seriously things happened recently lepas satu per satu tak make sense langsung. Sakit hati, jiwa pecah itu pasti.

Itu semua tidak mematahkan hati kita pada YLEO ye awak. Lumur YLEO tetap rutin kita hari-hari. Ni meh aku share sikit based on own experience on Aryan. Ini specific berkaitan dengan perut - peghadaman, pencernaan, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, bloating dan apa apa yg berkenaan dengannya.


  • Selepas lapascropic surgery, perut Aryan bloated kembung sgt sgt. Stok ketuk sikit bungik gendang, Keras ya amat. Everyday mak gigih sapu minyak telon up to a point perut Aryan jadi merah-merah. Maybe dah sebotol minyak kena tuang, he could not bear the heat. That was where aku pejam mata beli DiGize. At that time aku sendiri tak boleh brain kenapa aku sanggup beli oils ni bagai. Kalau harga sepluh hinggit maybe tak ralat, ini beratus ko ! Tapi betul lah org kata, kalau utk anak kita mmg takkan berkira. Mungkin kalau aku yg sakit, sampai lebam pun aku takkan start guna YLEO ini.
  • Btw, after 2 days applied DiGize, Alhamdulillah perut Aryan kempis like normal.
  • Selepas lapascropic, few weeks lepas tu doctor diagnosed dia ada chronic gastritis pulak. Again ! Every time sakit perut mmg Digize lah best fren dia.
  • And now, doctor diagnose dia ada IBS- Irratable Bowel Syndrom pulak. Gila kau tak tertekan.Tension sangat kepala ni nak memikirkan. Tapi every time aku rasa nak give up, MNI selalu igtkan betapa pentingnya utk redha dengan setiap ujian. Tsk tsk tsk.
  • Anyway, apa yg aku nak cakap dalam every situation ini, mmg aku apply Digize because of cos akan ada stomach discomfort. On perut.. Ada caranya ya.... massage anticlockwise utk tujuan A, clockwise utk tujuan B. Contohnya,
  • Kalau dapat telan Digize ni mmg lagi elok lah. Tapi celah mana nak suruh Aryan telan, memang mencabar jiwa, Aku pernah try titik Digize bawah lidah. Hamik kau rasa macam longkang ! Eh pernah rasa ke longkang. Serious aku tak boleh blah with it's smell. So apa aku buat, kalau nak telan Digize ni, kena masuk in vegetable capsule. So telan takkan rasa di lidah. Selamat trus masuk perut.



Another favourite oil utk tujuan seperti Digize is peppermint. But effect dia a bit 'softer' than Digize at least for me aku rasa cenggitu. Peppermint aku apply kat tapak kaki Aryan. Kalau awk nak sapu Peppermint kat perut budak kecik, kena dilute dulu k sebab dia agak panas.

Peppermint ni sgt bnyk lah kegunaan sampai mmg sentiasa dalam henbeg ai. Nanti aku share satu per satu apa yg aku dok sayang sgt peppermint nih. Btw, kandungan dalam Digize - ada Terragon + Ginger + Peppermint + Juniper + Fennel + Anise + Patchoulli + Lemongrass. Boleh kau bayangkan macam mana perut & usus bertindakbalas dengan bahan-bahan ni semua? Serious kau akan rasa detox kaw kaw punya.

Young Living Essential Oils - Demam

Hello hello salam 10 Syawal. Tomorrow pasti ramai orang hati pecah nak start kerja semula after long Raya break. Hati aku dah lama dah pecah sebab tak cuti, Raya ke-4 dah start kerja. Choii sangat. Tapi redhalah anda berkhidmat utk negara katanya.

Last few days, on Thursday night to be exact, memalam Aryan dah start sakit perut. After almost a week takde komplen sakit perut. Macam tahu-tahu pula dia on the next day tu ada follow up with Dr Nazrul pediatrician gastroenterology. Dia mata pejam macam tido tapi mulut bising mummy deddy sakit perut. Sambil itu aku boleh dengar perut dia gendang gendung berbunyik. Sambil gigih minyakkan Digize on his tummy.

Tiba-tiba MNI tanya kalau demam nak letak oils apa? Aku dah knapa sape pulak demam tiba-tiba nih memalam buta. Aryan dia kata.Adoilah hai anak. Kalau demam memangnya lah aku kalut.

Terus inilah Young Living Essential Oils yg I used on Aryan utk demam dia.

1) Peppermint - 4 drops on each sole (neat). 4 drops on his spine (dilute with V6). Peppermint adalah sangat effective utk menurunkan suhu. Kalau buat sponging, air at room temperature, letak few drops peppermint and sponging whole body guna air itu.

2) Oregano - 4 drops on each sole (neat). Ini wajib try dilute dulu sebab minyak ni panas. But Aryan aku apply neat on soles. Oregano adalah anti-virus and anti-bacteria.

3) Lavender - 4 drops on each sole (neat). 4 drops on his spine (neat).

Normally people use Thieves as anti-virus and anti-bacterial agent. But on Aryan I used Oregano instead sebab dalam Thieves ada oil Rosemary. Rosemary boleh trigger seizures for some people. So aku takutlah nak guna Thieves on Aryan, Thieves just utk Khalif sajo.


And utk dilute kan EO, boleh je guna virgin coconut oil or olive oil. Before this aku just guna coconut oil, tapi rasa tak best sebab coconut oil ada bau, Bila mix dengan EO, dia affect bau EO. So rasa tak best sgt. Eceh mengada sebenarnya. So gatallah juga membeli V6 oil from Young Living. V6 ni guna utk dilution- boleh utk massage and also nak dilute for ingestion. Multi-purpose juga. Takkan la kau nak massage guna EO semata, rabak lah poket beli EO bebotol botol nak massage dek non.




Alhamdulillah esok paginya Aryan kebah dah demam dia. We went to work macam biasa. Called bibik few times to ensure Aryan ok, Alhamdulillah dia tak demam or tak jadi demam entah tak tau nak kata.

So itu sahaja yg ai nak share. Dah jatuh chinta sangat kemaruk mmg cenggini kekdah dia kol 1 pagi google pasal EO lagi.There's so many things kena explore and it's just amazing bila korek-korek ehhh rupanya benda cenggini boleh guna EO ini lah.. itu lah...Pastu ai tanyalah pada yg expert betul ke kekdahnya guna EO itu untuk ini itu dah sebagainya. Takdelah membuta tuli gittew..

Ok dah. Bye.
