34 Weeks.

Only 6 weeks to go and i’m happy to announce that most of the things on my list has been cleared!

  • We’ve managed to move some stuff around, and found some space for the new addition.
  • We’ve settled on a hospital, KJMC. Been there twice so far for check ups, and i’m feeling pretty good about it.
  • We are officially free of boxes. We sent off the last of the storage boxes down to in laws in ipoh.
  • We’ve set up an account on Carousell, to sell off additional items that we can’t find space for. Take a look.
  • Bought a diaper bag.

Now we just need to….

  • Assembled the crib.
  • Source a car seat to buy.
  • Buy a pump.
  • Pack hospital bag
  • Handover work!

We are all systems go! Now if only the haze would go away so we can spend some wonderful time outdoors.


Nesting.. in overdrive.

Third trimester has loomed it’s head. Leaving us frantic…. WHERE DID THE TIME GO!!?

Suddenly, we have 12 weeks to prepare for a new baby. The house is in such bad shape.

– we’re still surrounded by boxes.

– we have NO SPACE for the crib or baby crap.

– the partition hasn’t been built. all the doors are broken. Fan in mama’s room doesn’t work. Now my sofa is broken due to an unfortunate incident.

– the bathtub rack needs to be spray painted cuz it’s rusty.

– we haven’t got a stroller/carseat/crib.

– confinement details/maternity leave details

– work replacement/handovers. argh.


SO MUCH STREEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS and i hate i can’t do all this shit myself!


#ProjectRumahKami: To Zigzag or to Chevron??

It’s insanely impossible to not notice the trend of chevron overload lately.

ps: How cute are those Chevron baby shoes!?

Its everywhere (heck, it’s even the background of this blog!)! From nail polish, to dresses, leggings, walls, furniture, and even cakes! Chevron might be simply a fancy way to say zigzag, but i can’t help it! I’m in LOVE!!

It’s apparent from all the pins i’ve collected in my Home Deco Board that i’m extremely bias with this trend.

I only hope that i can censor myself enough so that our home doesn’t end up looking like crazy zigzag land.

Check out a few of my all time favourite Chevron trends for home deco!

Kitchen backsplash? Yes PLEASE. But might be a little overwhelming. hmm.
Maybe something like this instead?
Maybe for Mahdi's or the Guest room?

I absolutely LOVE this flooring, but i'm pretty sure it would be way to much for our small space.

I'm in love with this idea of having a unique door. All i need to do now is convince Muuzi that we need this.

Again with the navy.. this time with yellow accent. LOVE!

So as you can see, i’m in a dilemma. I love this pattern so much… but obviously i can’t have it in every room.

So what stays? Hmmmm…

#ProjectRumahKami – Mahdi’s Room

Being a mom puts a lot of things in perspective…

So one of the main reasons I want our own house is so we can have somewhere to build a family and raise Mahdi in the best environment possible.

While obsessively pinning things on pinterest, i came across  this Montessori style toddler bedrooms which i LOVE.

Check out some photos below.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love this toddler room!

#ProjectRumahKami – Intro

We are on the final stages of getting our new home in Damansara Damai.

Unfortunately it’s gonna be another 6 months until we get the keys…. so i’ve got all this time to OBSESS over every little tiny detail of it.

If you follow me on pinterest, you can see that my pinning is a bit erratic as a can pin up to 100 pins an hour… as i said. I’m obsessed with this project.

We never really had a home when i was growing up. My mom rented a lot.. and MOVED a LOT. We basically lived out of boxes like modern day nomads. So when i got a family of my own, i made it very clear, we would need our own home. Lucky for me, Muuzi agrees.

So bare with me over the next 6 months, as i might rant a lot about home deco and pictures like this… which i LOVE! 🙂
