. During my first pregnancy, one of the tips that i applied happily was to always interact with my baby via music. I did this in many ways.
1) After prayers, I recited either Surah Maryam, Surah Luqman, Surah Yusof or Surah Muhammad by rotation. Reading Quran is a form of music too. Indah!!
2) During working hours, i kept listening to music using my headphone. The most frequent song i played was from Project Pop - Bukan Superstar. Astaghfirullah. Nak tergelak pun ada. Dangdut pop weh. I didn't get it why. Haha!!! But i really could feel that oman moved a lot inside there synced the melody. (Ntah2 dia ngamuk x suka :p) Thank God Oman is now into rancak song like Bad Romance or I'm a Bee rather that 100% cintaku, Kalau bulan bisa ngomong ke kan? x ke haru????
I was at the 26th week of my pregnancy.
We + 3 more AJK semendut-mendut karoukeing from S.Alam to Penang and Penang to SA. I know! I know! xkuase sungguh!
Look at his "abang layan dangdut dong ah!" face.
Armi was really being sporting although it was actually a force from me. Ngeeeeeee! :)
3) That man in the picture loved to sing to my belly like a lot!. Very famous song. The one and only Glory Glory Man United :p He also played that song every night before sleep and did his starjump whenever he saw left and right bonjolan appeared at my belly.
"Uish confirm kiri kanan tendang bola ni Bi". Very ambitious father.
While we put our hands together for the Doa after prayers, i could hear he added on the last part about the baby growing up going to MU academy, football star and so on. Sempat!!!! Amin! :)
Hmmm.. Lemme think for a second. Did i tell Armi that my laptop screen saver throughout my pregnancy was Kaka instead of CR? (that time CR was still kebanggaan MU) Ngeh! Ngeh!
After Oman was born, we still loves to interact with him via music. Siap lagi I composed one song for him. Semangat!
Every night before i put him to bed, it is the best time for me to educate Oman with some Doa Harian and also songs. Like Doa makan, Doa tidur (Baca Doa dengan berlagu kan music jugak) and currently i keep repeating al-Fatihah and Kalimah Syahadah to him. Oman would listen and love when i leave blank some parts of every sentence to him. Suka hati dia lah nak sebut apa and if it's wrong, i akan betulkan. Sometimes he purposely make it wrong to see my reaction. Noti tau. It's fun. Insya Allah anakku, slowly kay! :)
Doa makan with Oman
There are few Kanak2 song that Oman has almost mastered them so far. Itula favorite yang di ulang- ulang nya tiap malam. :)
Anak Nabi Kita
'Dadda'ku Pulang dari Kota
Air Pasang Dalam
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Whether he correctly completed the Doa/songs or not, i would still give him the best compliment and we clap our hands together.
But be careful. When he's too motivated then he doesn't want to stop and sleep. He keep wanting me to sing so i started to make my singing sounds like pretty ugly way, Out of tune. He get fed up and say, "momma nyanyi esokla k". :p
Well, I am sure every parents have their own good ways to educate their children. Music is one of it. Music is good for kids' brain development. At the same time, you and your kids gonna have fun together.
After all, no matter what, anak-anaklah our SUPERSTAR kan? :)
My Superstar dengan tahi lalat Pua Chu Kang nyer. =D
"oh mama! i love you so much each and everyday. You mean a lot to me. Today is the most special, because you receive loves from not only your kids, but the rest of the world too. HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY, mama and mama!!! =)" posted on FB and smses to both of them by me at 3 am in the morning cause i accidentally sleeping after my son wished me. Too Happy.
Until 9am in the morning, i didn't received any reply from both of my mama. I was too worried if those messages were failed to be delivered. I asked my mama, "mama, dapat tak message K.Yung?". She went like, "Oh! dapat!! TQ! TQ! sorryla x reply. mama busy" :) hahahha. Yelah ramai btol yg wish yer!!! :P

Don't you know that The First Lady of US, Michelle Obama loves brooches so much? I am agreed with MillionLooks that she was the one who made brooches extremely popular again. She has it on at almost of her outfits!
As a person who wears hijab, I found brooch and i will never be separated. To me, it's like a compulsory accessories to be worn at least a piece on.
Of all, i am currently so deeply in love with our Malay Traditional Brooches. Oh my! Their design are so delicate and their beauty are timeless. Our great great grandmothers were so brilliant to initiate this pieces as their outfit accessories. :)
Yes i have few of them in my collection and i am totally excited to have them more. Lemme share them here;
My first collection. Sangat cantik kalau dipakai dengan baju kurung & kebaya.
The second. Yang ini size dia 10cm x 10cm. Cantik jugak!
The third. Wau Shape. Nice.
They are undoubtedly beautiful to be worn with plain Baju Kurung or Kebaya aren't they? And for those who wear Hijab, pin them on your hijab near to your shoulder will definitely make a great effect.
Well, you could also make some difference. Inspired by few celebs on red carpet with their hair brooches on, I dared to adopt this style on my hijab.
WELCOME to the piece of me, a SURI with full of dreams and interests, who also loves everything that makes her life all positive and colorful.
Primary in life, I would always remind myself to learn more and practice Islam better, at the same time keeping my life moderate and wasatiyyah.
I'm very grateful that i belong to such wonderful people around me. Being a SURI in their hearts, i feel a completion. May us living happily & blessedly ever after.
Today is the day! i'm writing my own blog!! :) and this is me until today:
I am happily married to a guy who never fail to make me love him more and more everyday :) We've been on honeymooning since 2006, and soon, we gonna have a baby! Me and him are majorly excited and counting the days of the arrival. Doc estimates that the 'war' will be on this coming 18th Feb, and it could be early..wohooo!!!!
My dream is to be the BEST. Best for Encik Armi (my hubby ler ni) and our future kids. And that's where 'MOMMAHOLIC' comes from. A supermomma. Hehe..hopefully bukan konon-kononla :) Aamin.
