If you wish for a better life…the key is PATIENCE

 I hate to brag. But I love to share joyfull news.

Recently my pain of leaving the old workplace was heal. They say money makes the whole world go round. I cant help but say it does.

I got a shock when I saw my pay slip. Maybe because I’ve not seen that much money in my life. To hit nearly 3K on my pay definately makes a HUGE different. I dont even know what to do with all that money that I gave my mom 1/4 of it to be kept. If I keep it in my bank…I’m tempted to shop till I drop!

Of course the baby comes first. Because as Malays we believe its the baby’s REZEKI. But rest assured I’ve had good night sleeps more than I have ever before.

Reason being?

I’m paid nearly RM700 just for my shift allowance + transport

I’m paid double OT to work on one public holiday – I’ve be working on 3 next month, another 8 hour for training on Saturday (2 Feb) & 2 hours extra for the Team Meeting 4-6pm = around RM725.

Now a combation of just my shift allowance + transport and the OT, that was like nearly the old salary I got before. I’ve not counted my basic yet…so now you understand me jumping for joy???

However?

There should also be some sales money in there as well (since we are offering an online service to our clients – one sign up is RM8)

Good ratings for my calls – I got 85% for one so thats RM20 and for 75% thats RM10.

But thats besides the issue.

SO..whats my financial planning?

Money for the delivery
2 baby cots – one for the one here in KL and another in my mother’s house
The best baby motivational toys from Fisher Price
Loads of baby books (you know the cloth type ones)

A senior recently asked me if I could handle the stress. Its manageable if I equip myself with the proper information and education. Beside I have starbucks, watsons, guardian and McD just a few floors down…HA HA HA

I’ve tried getting the doctor to print my scan photos but she said it was still no small…but I got to see the first few glimpse of my mini me…shy and hiding from the scanner…HA HA HA doctor had to scan a few times before she could pause and let me have a first look.

I know I can afford the best hospital but since I’ve always this cheapskake gal, I’m gonna deliver at the new hospital in Ampang – 1st Class should not blow a hole in my pocket right.

I’m starting to pay taxes…so why dont I just used the service anyway right!!?

I hope the decision that you’ve made or going to make is for the better. But I do believe that there is GOD (in my case Allah SWT) and patience.

Nothing is impossible if you put a little faith to it 😉

On being preggie…

 

Am sure that with recent developments thats going on in my body I should have my head hanging over the toilet bowl.

Or else with fainting spells

NOT!

Alhamdulillah I have been blessed with an anti-puke pregnancy. My mum says it runs in the family. But the not so good side of it I just cant STAND STRONG PUNGENT SMELL…including the MANLY smell of my darling husband. Husband now has to smoke outside before I start screaming at the top of my voice.

I am also blessed with a taste bud for fiery food – heaps and heaps of cili padi. Last night’s beef stew with cili padi (something I would SWEAR OFF) was HEAVEN.

My kind generous loving brother-in-law JoJo gave me an enormous box of donuts (i swear it had 10 mouth watering ones) from Big Apple Cafe in Pavillion.

But after one bite I was amazed at how YUCKY they taste…the sweet ones only la (jgn marah aa JoJo). But I loved the spicy chicken floss one and had this crazy idea of placing a slice of cheese ontop and placed it in the my oven to grill….HEAVEN

  

For baby’s sake I have totally stop coffee, tea, coke-cola and anything with cafein. I tell you its a TORTURE!

But I love the enfamum low fat milk in chocolate flavor i have once in the morning and one at night…at least something.
I’ve started conjouring up thoughts of buying a crib and a diaper change table for our mini me in my tummy. Aiyooo MIMPI BESAR ni. Also how to decorate the nursery…but BIG DREAMS only la. We were looking at baby buggies and baby Moses baskets at TESCO yesterday…cant believe it will be us in 8 months time.

Ok..am at my last leg of work. Good thing about attending Aus & NZ is that things get pretty quiet after 3.00PM 😉
