Today is my day..

I am now in my 20days of my confinement period. So as it said la.. I am still on my strictly confinement diet complete with body binder and all the rempah/mandi lulur, however being a fulltime housewife, the house chores (launderettes, sweeping, mopping, washing dishes, except cooking) must continue to perform. It’s been a month I being a sahm. Not a single complaint for the time being as the monthly salary is still there; wait till it stop, then.. hehehe..

So, what’s up in the studio?
I’ve start sewing and taking order for raya. Yup, you read it right. I know it is a taboo to sew during confinement (in our Malay culture), and I am not trying to prove anything here. It just that sitting and doing nothing can basically kill me, so to avoid committing suicide, I need to be me: pampering myself with things that I like: kemas rumah and sewing.

My first project (after delivery) was sewing the baju kurung(s) for little kiddo(s) age one and two. A very simple sewing however took me more than 2days to complete it. Well, I guess my sewing momentum is still decelerating. I am in adjusting mode as a mother of two: one being very active (however easy to control) and another one being a koala bear that love my b00bs very much. Yes, Hamza is very clinging. My me-sewing-time is when he is asleep, and at that time I also need to sleep as well. So, kena pandai curi-curi masa untuk menjahit.

Menjahit sambil menyusu ni:



So, what’s up with the above title?
Well, today is my birthday. *grin* I am 31 years old, married, having a stable life with a secure career, with a pair of kid. I am content. Thank you Allah swt for all the gives. I couldn’t ask for more.

And since today is my special day, I would like to give something to my beloved blog reader: you can choose: to have a (A) book: Panduan Menjahit Pakaian by Mariam Abu Bakar or (B) 4mtr fabric (suitable for making baju kurung).




So choose A or B (or both, but you will be able to get only a gift) by commenting at the comment box below. Add together your email address, ya. You’ll have till Monday to enter this giveaway. Lucky two will be announced on Tuesday, 29 June 2010. Good luck. Oh, again open for Malaysian resident only (everyone are welcome to join as long as you have a mailing address in Malaysia). Heheheh…

That’s all. Thank you for visiting NeezaNeedleS.com.

Oh..oh.. I need to go now.. Lil’Guy is screaming:

  5. Salam Neeza. Happy birthday and congratulations on your newborn :). I know how you feel adjusting to two kids. I have two myself. It gets a lot easier as the baby grows. Arwen can play by herself infront of the tv while I sew when previously, she’s clingy too. Kita di kawasan yang sewaktu dengannya ye...
