Money Matters Part 2

Assalammualaikum,

It has been over a year since my last post on this matter. Alhamdulillah.. I now have a career and I am not planning to 'move' yet. I kinda like what I am doing now. ;)

Dear Husband and I have been discussing about "house" for the past couple of weeks. He has his plans and I do too, which sadly to say it's not the same. Haha! But we have slowly figure things out and slowly plan our future.


Our first step to a better family financial planning is to take Takaful Dream House, insya Allah we will start investing in August. We have decided to take 15 years maturity. Hence, while waiting for our own house, we will be renting Government house by next year. My family is multiplying!! Hehehe ;)

I believe it is a wise decision to start early investing in Takaful Dream House (or any other investments) while you are still young especially when you're planning to have your own house by taking less amount of loan but taking a lot of time. As what dear Husband said, instead of us paying high interest now for taking out loan, why not let the interest pays us first. I was reluctant to his idea at first but seems like it's a better option for now. :))

And for Baby Iqbal second birthday, we will take Takaful Education for him apart from saving at his account in TAIB. Alhamdulillah we can do it on monthly basis now. Insya Allah, Baby no.2 will have his/her own account too when he/she is one month old just like Baby Iqbal and his/her takaful when Baby no.2 reaches two years old.

I am really grateful with our condition now and thankful that we manage to save and 'splurge' sometimes at the same time these days. And I even can help my parents and siblings too. :DD

First Appointment

Finally I went to see the Doctor in the government clinic on 6th July. I went to the clinic on Thursday then they told me to come to see the Doc the next Saturday. Keep telling me that I'm a late booker. Pfft!

I was asked to fast on Friday night and mom took my blood for tests the next day before I went to the clinic. Dear husband kindly accompanied me. :D The Doc referred me to a dietician and I was asked to do an ultrasound on the 9th July which I'm excited about! GTT was schedule to be done on 6th Aug and I have to attend dietician briefing this 22nd July (next week!). Sighs! Its keturunan you see! I'm not unusually petite and thin.

When Iman and I attended the ultrasound, we were so excited to find out our baby's gender. But of course, we would like to know if our baby is healthy and how the baby is in my tummy. Alhamdulillah.. Baby no.2 is doing great. When Dear Husband asked the Doc if we can find out our baby's gender, she said.. "Most likely a xxxxx" but I am not satisfied with her answer. I'm not convinced yet truth to be told. We'll find out again soon, insya Allah.

Salam Ramadhan




Alhamdulillah.. Once again, we are able to meet the holy month of Ramadhan.

Months ago before I found out that I was pregnant, I was eagerly waiting for this month to come. Just because I had missed the last two. Little did I know, I had to miss it again this time.

Nevertheless, I wish all my Muslim friends "Selamat Menyambut bulan Ramadhan".. Mudah-mudahan segala amal ibadat yang dilakukan akan di terima oleh Allah SWT jua.. Aamiin ya Rabbal 'Alamiin!!

Bag Lust: From GST to PST

I mentioned in my previous post that I'm aiming for Chanel GST next. After a lot of researching, reading  and measuring I have finally decided to get a PST instead.

I have been using big bags all these while so this time I'm looking for bags that are right for my size. After all this is not going to be my everyday bag for work. Just for casual during the weekend perhaps when I need to go out. Or function and events. :D

So here is the picture.. *drools* :P Hehe
