Our Iman Soraya ♥

19/06/2017. Monday . 6 days old

Prior to the arrival of our Daughter, both A.H & I had a mutual agree that our Daughter's name must be simple, sweet & it of course carries good & beautiful meaning(s). I've always liked the name 'Iman' & we've been calling our Daughter by that name as soon as we found out that I was expecting at 10 weeks

Well, I never told this to anyone but I chose the name 'Iman' as a tribute to my Abah who was working as a Tuan Imam for almost 20 years before he retired in 2010. I had witnessed how dedicated my Abah was in fulfilling his job & tasks; not only as a Tuan Imam but also as Tuan Kadhi as well & I'm kinda grew up with the title 'Anak Tok Imam / Tok Imey (in Kelantanese dialect)'

Oh, there's another story behind the name 'Iman'

A.H & I had been married for 1 year & 8 months before we found that there's a little Bun in the oven. Whilst others were blessed with a child earlier than us, A.H & I were cool about it. Of course we did receive questions like "Bila nak ada baby?" but yeah, we tried to be cool with it & the least that we could answer to feed their curiosity was "Tak ada rezeki lagi. Tolong doakan lah". Hehe! While on the same time, both of us tried to remain positive & believed that Allah swt akan bagi rezeki when the right time comes. Just have faith in Him as He is the best Planner of all. So yes, our Iman Soraya is our personal epitome of us having faith in Allah & His Plan

How about 'Soraya'?

Both A.H & I came out with a list of names that we like & apparently, both of us like the name 'Soraya'. Needless to say, I was the one who came out with the name *winks* & Alhamdulillah, not only A.H likes the name but also both my Family & his

Hence, the name 'Iman Soraya'

Iman - إيمان   
Meaning: Faith, belief

Soraya - سوريا  
Meaning: Beautiful, gem, jewel (It is of Persian & Arabic origin)

We pray may our Iman Soraya live up to her name, grow up well, healthy, pious & be the coolness of everyone's eyes. Amin ya rabbal alamin

Announcing The Arrival Of Our Little Princess ♥

Assalamualaikum. In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent The Most Merciful

My Husband & I would like to announce the arrival of our daughter, Iman Soraya Binti Mohd Azzam Hafifi who was born on 13/06/2017 / 18 Ramadhan 1438H (Tuesday) at 1.00 am. Alhamdulillah

Our Little Iman is still pretty much uterus lagged, hence she's taking her own sweet time to make her first public appearance which is very very soon, I can assure you. Just like what she did when she decided to come out 11 days post her EDD. Hehe! 

Alhamdulillah, things are good except that we are still adapting & adjusting our lives with this awesome parenthood phase. And that includes those sleepless nights as well. So, now I understand when people told me to get enough rest & sleep before the Baby arrives because having good night's sleeps seems impossible now *yawns*

Nonetheless, we love you so much, Iman Soraya We pray may you grow up well, healthy, pious & be the coolness of everyone's eyes. Amin ya rabbal alamin

A Major Change

Assalamualaikum & hallo! Ramadhan Mubarak day 13!

Decided to do a major makeover to this blog, in conjunction with me officially being a Mother soon. InsyaAllah! Auww! Sempat lagi nak berblog kan at 40w6d of pregnancy?

So, this is the new look:

Bunga-bunga header + polkadot background
Ni baru mak-mak punya theme!

And this is the previous one before the major makeover:

Tangkat muat header & sesuci lebaran white background

No matter how much I love white background with simple blog header, changes once in a while are good ayte? And with our Little I arriving really soon, InsyaAllah, I really hope that I would still have some free time to blog & update this space

Celebrating The 36w of Pregnancy ♥

05/05/2017. 36w

Assalamualaikum & hallo!

This post is quite outdated as I'm already in my 40w6d of pregnancy today. I've been keeping this post in my draft list for almost a month but you know, finding a perfect sitting position has been very tricky (and I may add, painful at some points) with this huge belly of mine. Hence, terkepam begitu sahaja

Btw, I was on my 36w of pregnancy 4 weeks ago, on 05/05/2017 to be exact. Wow! It really feels like yesterday when A.H & I were excited welcoming the final month of my pregnancy. Little that I knew, I already passed my EDD & have been pregnant for 40w / 10 month. Hmmm, not bad. And just because entering 36w of pregnancy is really a major milestone for me & out Little I, it deserved to be celebrated! Hehe! 💕

So, how & where did we celebrate?

First Day. 04/05/2017, Thursday
Copthorne Hotel, Cameron Highlands

When it comes to choosing a place to stay during our holiday, A.H & I aren't that type of adventure ones. Bila dah rasa selesa & satisfied dgn 1 hotel tu, we will keep coming & staying there. During our last trip to Cameron Highlands, it was our 2nd time staying at Copthorne Hotel. Situated at Brinchang, this hotel is very near to Cameron Squares (they have Teh Tarik Place, Old Town White Coffee, 7e, Watsons etc there), Kea Farm & jalan nak pergi Boh Tea Farm. 

We left Kota Bharu at about 10 am & arrived there ngam-ngam before the check-in time which was at 2 pm. 

Although we didn't get our requested room (the one with balcony facing the tea farm), we were still happy with what we got (instead, we got a room facing the hill with a hotel/apartment construction going on). Okay la not bad. Stay for 2D1N je pung

Didn't go anywhere on the first day, except to Old Town Kopitiam, Cameron Squares nearby for dinner

 The last holiday as spouses before we become a Family of 3 soon. InsyaAllah

 A.H & his Plague Inc game that he was so obsessed with which I will never understand. 
A game to spread diseases, apakah itu?

Second Day. 05/05/2017, Friday

While I had a good night's sleep last night minus a few times I had to toss around finding a perfect sleeping position (went to bed at 10 something pm. Bliss! #teamsukatidokathotel), A.H had some troubles to sleep & only managed to doze off at 5 am. Tu la, siapa suruh minum Red Bull & Nescafe 2 tin sekaligus kan?

Hence, his lemau face 

We went to Sungai Palas BOH Tea Centre after the check out & had a breakfast there whilst enjoying a breath-taking beautiful scenery. Pergi Cameron Highlands but tak singgah sini, macam tak complete la kan?

We went to Kea Farm on our way home. Didn't go to Strawberry Farm sebab hari tu dah pergi. Lavender Farm pun tak pergi sebab A.H was drowsy (although I really wanted to. Huhu!) & nak cepat-cepat sampai Kota Bharu before it gets late. Plus, the crowd was getting merrier sebab hari Jumaat kan? Before jam ke ape, baiklah kita berunsur-unsur pulang

RM10 for 10 packets of vegetables 

One of the best 🍓 ice creams we ever tasted. RM5 per stick, nasib baik worth the money

On our way home to Kota Bharu, we stopped by at A.H's workplace to have an ultrasound scan to check whether everything is okay, just in case. Risau jugak sebab travel jauh-jauh at my 36w of pregnancy

Alhamdulillah, everything was okay. Our Little I's gender has been confirmed once again (dah makin confident nak beli baju Raya! Yay! 🎀), amniotic fluid pun okay. Little I's estimated weight at 36w was 2.698kg & her weight last week at 39w6d was around 3.179kg

Not bad, Little I. I just pray that I could deliver her via normal delivery soon sebab emak dia ni kecik je orangnya. Huhu!My current weight is 56.4kg & I've gained about 11kg so far. This Friday, I'll be 41w pregnant & willy nilly, I've to go to the hospital to see if I've to go for induced labour or otherwise. Please pray for me, people!

Ramadhan Mubarak Day 12
