Heard the GREATEST news from daddy. I don't dare to announce it here until it is official. Buat malu je if tak betul but let me tell you this I've been dreaming of this moment for the past 9 years. (I'm not exegerating, ok) I've come close a few times but if this is true... well all I can say is syukur and thank you god. You've given me so much and I'm so blessed...
To hubby and baby... Thanks to both of you, for being my great motivator and to the other for being the inspiration... Love you both so very much...
Ok I shall not go on and on about it until it's official. Maybe after that I shall shout it from every roof top :) hahahahahahah

Venue: Jalan Kebun & Klang
Synopsis: Lan helped with the korban @ the masjid near his house. I stayed at home gossiping with sis in law. Went home to Klang in the evening, finish washing all of Beanie's clothes ( I hate doing freaking laundry and no matter how cute the clothes are tiny baju's are double the annoyance *grrr* Things you do for your child..hehe) At least hubby the laundry freak helped. Terima Kasih :)
Occasion: Post Anniversary Celebration??
Venue: Pavillion KL
Synopsis: We spend half the day in Pavillion roaming around and getting baby stuff. I was salivating over the bags. Coach was having clearance sale so is Marc Jacob. Was contemplating buying one but can't find one that I really like (i.e. was also a bit put off coz Mr Azlan was making faces..huhu)
I managed to get the last bit of present shopping out of the way. I'm left with one xmas prezzie and I'm done for the year :)
Went to Parkson and we saw the Petunia Pickle Bottom line of diaper bags and I fell in love. Been hunting for some stylo diaper bag for the past few months and finally found one that I like within reasonable budget and it was on sale. The bags are also quite versatile and you can even attach it to the stroller with the stroller clip. Thanks darling me love the bag so much :)
Check out the designs in www.petuniapicklebottom.com.
The one with the vampire, warewolf and annoying whinny girl :p
We went and watch New Moon on the same day. Made hubby get me the gold class ticket, which was a good call coz my legs was aching after 3 hours of non-stop shopping. If you like the book, you'll like the movie, though I find it a bit draggy for some reason.
None of the actors would be winning Academy Award for their performance but it was a good entertining flick for the obvious reason (total eye candy feast) En. Jacob is so hot. Robert Pattinson is not bad if you can look past the paleness and ridicoulous red lips (haha) Kristen Steward just annoy the shiz outta me in and off screen. I never like the character Bella that much. So whinny and clingy, tak girl power lansung.
However, don't let my comments put you off from watching the movie. Serious best if you want easy entertainment :)
Sun Day Lazing...
Didn't do much today. Lazing around, was a bit tired from all the walking yesterday. Need to do a bit more cleaning up today and I think I'll go to bed early.... lalala
Off to watch Iron Chef.

Anyway, baby update time. I’ve gained 9.6kg so far. Beanie is in his 34 weeks going to 35 and currently weight 2 kg (comel dan tembam) I’m relieve coz he has passed the minimum weight requirement (i.e. insyallah he will not be born underweight) Tapi janganlah gain too much weight ok sayang :) Kesian mummy nanti. Hehehehehe
Doctor was able to detect Beanie’s testis already, and he’s doing fine. I’m ok too despite having terrible bouts of heartburn for the past few days (well nothing much can be done about it anyway). Mengikut pantang orang tua, the more heartburn you get the more hair the baby would have, so I shall suffer a bit for Beanie's vanity. But even if you turn out bald mummy will still love you branches and branches... heheheh
Last week was my first baby checkup without hubby. Hubby had to work and can’t take leave. It’s not his fault and I know he would have been there if he could (Lan have been there for every check up & pre natal classes) so I don’t really blame him. But couldn’t help feeling a bit down (biasalah emo je lebih).
I’m currently obsessed with my hubby (I think its normal; p) I have to have him around me or I’ll be very agitated. I’ll be like “we don’t spend enough time together” and he’ll reply “errkk you see me every day???” He must think I’m nuts but I don’t care (hahaha)
I really really want to go for my babymoon but having a hard time to convince hubby. I gave him a “scare” 2 weeks ago and now he refused to go anywhere beyond KL with me. But I know he thinks it’s a bit silly to book a room in a hotel around KL, so I’m still trying to convince hubby.
Endless Baby Shopping…
I got my Madela Swing B/P + the Citystyle BP bag from Robinsons. The price for both is quite cheap even as compared to getting it online, so I’m HAPPY. I also got Beanie this 2 adorable jumpsuit from Tiny Thots. Quite pricey in my opinion but I can’t help myself it’s just too adorable.
I got several kind offers for Beanie’s gift. To tell you the truth I’ve gotten 98% of the things in my list, so not much left “useful” things to get. Someone suggested for a list similar to the one I had for the wedding. Tengoklah if I rajin :)
Gotto go finish my presentation. See ya later alligator.

Date : Friday the 13th November 2009
Venue: One World Hotel, Damansara
Theme : 1950's
Verdict : Awesome
Out of the 3 SC Annual Dinner I've been so far, I think I had the most fun yesterday. Didn't win anything (also another first). Wardrobe planning was a bit of a nightmare, because I can't make up my mind on a suitable outfit. To tell you the truth I have tons of 1950's theme appropriate (but of course non-fit me anymore)
Anyway I had a great time getting ready (fave part of any event). A bit of a boost to confidence exercise :p Can't help it sometimes, esp when you're so huge and all over the place hehehee.. '
I'll blog more a bit later on other stuff. Shall leave you with some pics from A.D. More in FB I supposed :)

I’m currently actively hunting for birthday, wedding, newborn and xmas presents. As if present hunting is not stressful enough I have to do it within a dateline in mind. 6 more weeks to go to Beanie’s expected due date (give and take I might be 2 weeks early: p)
Sweetstuff volunteered to get my stuff from online US websites and delivering it to me. I already took her on her offer once and ordered some baby stuff and a new Vera Wang Hobo. Initially I wanted to get this stylo mylo diaper bag, but hubby sneered at the picture, so I cancelled the order and choose a bag for me instead (hahaha) Tapi murah je because they were having sales (Hubby is reading this so I better emphasize on the MURAH part)
So now I’m deciding on whether I should order stuff online or go present hunting in flesh (haha) not much time and on a limited budget: p I need to prioritize, I guess. Beanie, I’m so jealous of you, getting all this cool new stuff and making me feel extremely guilty every time I make unnecessary purchases.
It’s a total 180 degree turn from being the one who is always on the receiving end to the one giving.I guess that is one change I have to make. I can imagine the attention you’ll be getting from your atuk & wan. I was told that if you want any indication on how your parent would treat your child, times 2 the attention that they usually give you and your siblings. *hmmm* If that is true, I guess you’ll be receiving A LOT of attention from everyone, everyday and all the time. I can feel you kicking in agreement. Suka lah tu: p
SC 2009 Annual Dinner is this Friday. The theme? 1950's. My dresses are ready for both the dinner and my sister’s engagement. I like the engagement dress better (so flow-y I feel like a princess... hahah) but the dinner dress is ok-ok lah… I guess when you’re 8 months pregnant, you don’t have that much option. I wanted to wear the dress with my killer nude 4inch stiletto, but my leg look so fatso in it, so will have to make do with my 2inch wedges instead. Don’t really feel like going shoe shopping at the moment. Anyway I’m making hubby wear all black and his fedora (he insisted on buying one a few months back for god knows what reasons, so he better put it to good use now)
Anyway this are the shortlisted items of things that interest me. Shall put it in my wishlist, maybe I'll get it for myself if my bonus this year is satisfactory :) or manalah tau hubby is secretly planning to give me a "delivery present". Ingat tak apa ustaz kursus kahwin tu cakap "bila visit wife after labour nanti, don't come empty handed but come bearing gifts i.e. gold, diamonds etc" hahahah hey words from a very wise and religious man, husband out there should really take note :)..
Bags from Micheal Kors : Love this purple satchel
Betsey Johnson Satchel : Simple but adorable
For my little one: Kingston Rossdale inspired (who says you can't get cute stuff for baby boys?)
Everyone looks cute in a bunny outfit :)
Polo bodysuit. This is quite cheap due to the Patriot Day sale :)
*Awwww* cute baby shoes :) heheheh
I think I'll continue browsing and salivate. Nak kena save duit for next year *alhamdullilah* we're on to some very good news. Will blog more on this once I received a black and white confirmation. Rezeki baby I think :)

As you can see from above we managed to complete 90% of baby shopping already ( I just need to get the Breast Pump and Bath Tub) We bought Beanie's cot (so adorable,it came with matching bed sheets and all) and his baby seat and stroller. Lan insisted on the Quinny Buzz (*sigh* he COMPLAINT that I spoil Beanie too much, but dia lagi OVER) and we got the matching Maxi Cosy Cabrio car seat/infant carrier. I also got some EDUCATIONAL toys and books for Beebee...
I just feel this HUGE satisfaction, that Lan & I are able to provide Beanie with all the essential & some added luxury. *alhamdullilah* Months of saving, penny pinching, and minimizing on shopping escapades to ensure that Beanie is not deprive of his needs as long as it is within our power and budget :) (The Azlan household policy is not to buy anything you can't afford or need. I adhere to the first but argue on the later as our definition of NEED is contradictory)
Anyway it's been a good week so far becoz
- Exams went as well as expected (not GREAT but not horrible)
- I got some extra $$$ coz of some technical mistakes made by Finance earlier :p
- SPMS evaluation went ok despite some attempt by "makcik" to sabotage me *whatever*
- Manage to find some time to hang around with some of the chickadees during Fiena's Baby shower...
- Heard this great news from hubby. If things goes as plan...well... all the better for Lan, Beanie and I :) and my mummy would be ECSTATIC heheh
