Happy Ramadan, guys!!!

I received a few messages linking to my old Ramadan resolutions post and reminding me that it’s not too late to do them this Ramadan. Thanks for that, guys! Definitely motivating me to make full use of this Ramadan to do good deeds and ibadah.

I went for Terawih (is it Terawih or Tarawikh?) prayers yesterday with Dean. And we were kind of late so we rushed and packed all our things. I put on a T-shirt, comfy loose pants and put on my telekung. We mumbled goodbye to the kids and zoomed to the mosque. Had to park at the very end of the parking lot and walked up the many stairs hurriedly because the Imam was already reading the Isyak prayers.


the sweetest presentation

Ok so you might want to steal my best friends after this post, but I’d like to declare that they are bounded to me by a friendship contract so carefully worded that basically means they’re stuck with me and that you can’t sit with us. Unless you bring cake, we like cake. Well, I like cake. You can sit with me. I’ll leave them anytime.

So every single day AVA group chat beeps like mad, with three hormonal girls updating the ups and downs of our days. It’s truly a rollercoaster ride of emotions in there, stories from three different lives coming together on just a tiny screen. Some good, some bad, some just plain useless like Mimak’s toilet schedule, some truly useful like me correcting Toots’ grammar and Mimak’s spelling. Seriously, why am I friends with them.


a little boost

I haven’t blogged for weeks and let me tell you, I was one of the grumpiest versions of me. I just cannot… I need to blog, I need to write, I need to pour my creative juice into this Word document. Seeing a blank white space get filled up with this black font, it just excites me and I can already feel my battery being charged. There’s just this sense of belonging when I come to Proudduck, a sense of security and comfort when I write in my blog, and I sometimes wonder at what hour of the day can I steal time to just even write “Hi. Bye.” on my blog.


but I wanttttt

My nephew Aman came out holding a red tub. You guys know what it is… My mouth watered, my heart melted and my fingers itched to grab some. Once you pop, you can’t stop. Haha. It’s Pringles la duh! I kept myself from asking him for some because two pairs of little eyes were watching me; they belonged to Daniel and Mariam.

I swear if my kids weren’t there, I’d be finishing that tub of Pringles in 5 minutes.

Daniel looked at me and asked slowly knowing that I wouldn’t be happy, “Mommy…..” he called softly.


glamping. never again!
