Party on a Friday night!

Last Friday night, I received a party invitation from my Aunty for her daughter (my cousin's) 15th birthday party. It was last minute, where they booked the venue at 3pm but it turned out to be an awesome party! The party was held at Bora Ombak, Putrajaya.

As this is my aunt who owns Hanna Petals (the best florist in Bangi!), of course the decorations for the party was beautiful. I didn't expect it to be so grand!

This is the birthday girl! Happy birthday Nurin!

This is the owner of Hanna Petals!

The venue had its own live band which kept us entertained! My family love singing and dancing, you should see us in a karaoke! This time was no different, although there were some other people there, but we didn't really care! heheh we partied like it was ours.

My ever so talented cousin Nuha also entertained us by singing a few songs. The live band were impressed by her voice and the lady singer was grateful that she managed to rest for a few songs!

They also had beanbags facing the live band and overlooking the marina.

So all in all, it turned out to be a happening party! Even Nazrin (well he loved running around jumping on the bean bags) and Aaman enjoyed it. Both kids were not asleep until they got in the car (which was around 11.30pm!). We were all so happy that everyone managed to join the party, a great get together with the Tok Noh clan!

 Happy birthday Nurin and also Happy Anniversary Mak La and Uncle Muaz!!

35th Birthday

I turned 35 a week ago! old so old!

Anyways the birthday celebrations kicked off with Diana. She treated me to tea and scones at Starhill Gallery. She was 37 weeks at the time and I knew I had to catch up with her quick before she gave birth so I meet up with her on Friday evening before my birthday.

On my birthday weekend, we had a wedding to attend to in Penang so we went back to our kampung on Saturday. Prior to that, we made a quick stop to KLCC to buy my birthday present from Kimi. After searching high and low, I finally settled on this watch.

On Sunday, we checked into Hard Rock after briefly attending the wedding. Nazrin who came down with some tummy bug was vomiting since Saturday. At the wedding, he slept so we decided to leave after eating. Thankfully and miraculously, Nazrin was all better after seeing the pool! Phew!

Upon checking into our room, HRC was kind enough to give me a birthday cake! Yums!

Dinner that night was obviously at HRC. The boys were tired already, so we quickly ate dinner and went back to the room by 8.30pm! After quickly putting the boys to bed, Kimi and I stayed up to watch a horror movie called "UNFRIENDED". It had a Blair Witch concept, (using webcams) and revolved around killings via social media. Do check it out! It was a pretty good movie.

The boys absolutely loved the pool! It had a sizeable waterplay area for Aaman to walk around and play with and A few slides which Nazrin loved. The private beach section was also nice and clean.

Overall, we loved our stay at the HRH. And this is my fave pic of the family! Look at cheeky Aaman sticking his tongue out too!

The next day on the way back, I was suddenly hit with food poisoning instead! Whilst I was in between of throwing up, my aunty from Hanna Petals came by and gave me a bunch of flowers! Super sweet!

I also finally opened up my gift from Diana. I wanted to wait until it's actually my birthday to open it but in the rush of going to Penang, coming back with food poisoning, I didn't get a chance to open it! She got me an LV twilly! I need to bring it to LV with my bag and get them to put it on!

I also had lunch with my CBA's last Friday. I was a pretty rushed lunch as I had a Board meeting that evening but I am so glad we managed to get together.

Thank you for the yummy millie crepe cakes! At one point before my birthday, I did want the salted caramel one!

Over the weekend, I celebrated with my Sexy Bombshells and I chose karaoke! We did this 2 years ago and it was so much fun. So happy and grateful for the girls who could make it. Wished the rest could come too but one was in confinement, two were working, one was sick and one had family thing.

Last but not least, a small cake cutting with my family (well more like the niece and nephews!). Thanks hubs for buying the cake!

Alhamdulillah for another year. Thank you for all the birthday wishes and presents. Another blessed year of being loved. As for myself, I wish to improve myself further. I always feel like I need to go for some spiritual cleansing, get closer to Allah. No idea where to start though. Let's try and make it happen this year!

Review - Master Palette by Mario and Huda Beauty Matte Lip

As a birthday present to myself (alasan je) I ordered myself this highly coveted, most sought after eyeshadow palette! It's my Mario, who is Kim K's make up artist. This is not available in Malaysia so I ordered this through my friend Feeza, a fellow make up junkie. She bought this in Dubai and it's RM320. Pretty expensive but totally worth it!

Here are some looks I created. Apologies as I know most of my looks are the same! :p

The eyeshadows are so pigmented! and so easy to blend and super soft. It's totally worth the money spent! The range of shadows are awesome so I am set for the next 2 years without having to buy any other eyeshadows! MAJOR LOVE!

Also another current fave is my Huda Liquid Matte in Ikon.
I love this colour and the staying power is pretty awesome (although on me some of it rubs off after eating). It doesn't dry the lips or accentuate any cracked lips.

Here is a flatlay of the make up I used in Singapore.

Here is the look!

2016 SCORE Amazonian Race

At the office, we have a Sports Club and one of the classes offered is a bi-weekly aerobics class. One of the plus point about the current company is the Sports Club where we have a fully equipped gym, a sauna and classes like Aerobics and Zumba. About a few months ago, my boss who is an avid runner and an active sports woman invited us to join the Amazonian Race. It's a women only, 5km run with 12 obstacles. My boss invited the girls from Aerobics class and 4 of us decided to join (plus Natte - she doesn't do Aerobics :p)

I couldn't sleep the night before because Aaman didn't want to stop nursing plus I was super nervous about the event. I got up at 5am and Natte picked me up. After sending the kids to my in laws (yes at 5.30am and yes they were both awake! *pantang kalau mummy bgn!) we headed to Sepang. Luckily we car pooled because the roads were kind of dark and scary!

Upon arriving, we had to register. I wished that this could have been done earlier though. There were long queues of ladies, trying to get their wristbands before their 7am start.

Our excited (plus my scared and nervous face succesfully concealed) faces just before the race.

After a quick warm up lead by a Fitness First instructor, the race started. 

Well, it was hardly a race as it was not timed (phew!) The trail was behind the F1 Circuit and it was not to hilly. There were 12 obstacles in between so you don't feel the 5km at all which was GREAT!

These were obstacles that we had to go through.

  1. Balance walk on a plank 
  2. Rope swing - barely anyone escaped that muddy, cow poo stinking puddle!
  3. Over and under the barriers
  4. Crawling under wires
  5. 10kg sand bag
  6. Walked through a bunch of tyres
  7. Wall walk
  8. In and out of valleys
  9. A wall of rope
  10. Wooden wall
  11. Steep slide 
  12. Dunk in icy water
Obviously, I totally made up all those names! I have no idea what they are actually called!

The obstacles
Alhamdulillah, we all managed to finish the course in around an hour and a half. But most importantly, I finished without any injury (main concern for me each time!).

I had so much fun! Will definitely do this again!!

Birthday Wish List

Hey everyone!! Getting excited as my birthday is THIS WEEKEND! I went birthday present hunting over the weekend with the hubby and got it narrowed down to a few things. Unfortunately, one is out of stock while the other was the display unit. But it was a fun trip nonetheless! 

I have been requested for my wish list. I think it really helps everyone and makes it so much easier when there is a list, so as you wish :p These are in not in order.


Shower gels

I love shower gels, so anything from Bath and Body Works, L'occitane or Body Shop.

Make up - base

I just splurged major on an eye shadow palette (Master Palette by Mario - who does Kim's face) so I have enough eye shadows at the moment. But my base is running out so I have this on my TO BUY list at the moment (just the refil).


I have lost my mascara! Grr...

Scented candles

Diana got me Baies scented candle last year and OMG i am hooked on this scent! I love it so much and have used it all. It's so pricey though so any other scented candles would be awesome!

Duck Scarves

Fluff in Tea Tree

Jersey in Mint

Matte Satin Silk in Pinkdew

Black work pants (UK12 or size 40)

Now that we can wear long pants to work, I welcome black or dark coloured tailored or tapered pants. 

Workout pants (L)

Need another pair of long workout pants (ala yoga pants) as I currently have 2 long ones only and do 3 classes a week.

Sport socks

Had to throw a pair of my adidas socks after doing the Amazonian Race


Any nice tops is welcomed


So there you go! Obviously this is just a guide and I am not expecting anything. A prayer for good health, wealth and so that I am a better Muslimah would mean the world to me.
