What’s In Your Kikay Purse?

A dear big sister ate Litzie tagged us with this cute meme. I did this a few years ago over my wordpress blog. It’s about showing off what’s inside your bag itself. I’ll wait for that since it’s been years and a lot of things happened and has changed. I was using a small handy bag, but now, I need a big one – and when I say big, as in BIG bulky put-all-the-things-in-it bag. LOL!

Ooopps! sorry, The little one can’t help including herself when I was taking a shot of my kikay purse, hehe! This pouch was a gift from Julia’s god-mother, Joana last Christmas 2009. Thank you Ninang.

What’s inside?

  • Body Shop Face Base Foundation
  • Body Shop Mirror (Masha’Allah I have this for almost 4 years now, wow!)
  • 2 Maybelline New York’s Eye Liner
  • Maybelline New Yokr’s Pink Frosting Mousse Blush (love the shimmer!)
  • Bene tint (every girl should have one!) I put on this just in case of emergency, hehe! Need to rub those cheeks to go pink when I’m getting pale because of irate customers, hehe! Just kidding.
  • Rimel London Concealer (Believe it or not: I’ve just learned how to use this last February, LOL! I’m  a late bloomer when it comes to this things)
  • Marks and Spencer: Rasberry lip butter (another Christmas gift from a friend, Ceejhay).
  • Marks and Spencer: Lipstick – shades of Golden Sands

That’s all what’s into it. If you happen to drop by and see this, please do tag yourself and let me see yours too. Hehe! Thanks ate Litzie for the tag. Until next time.

Manic Monday #209

If you could write your own bill of rights, what would you include?
~ Hmm… I’m not updated with politics. I hate politics. For me, they are all the same. At first, they will pretend that they’ll make our world a better place to live in. Next, they will ask for your votes. Once they got your votes and win, third they will pretend that they’re doing something. They will do it, yes but part of that project comes – conspiracy, corruption and continuous lies. My answer will be: DON’T PRETEND! DO IT!

What is going on in the world today that affects you the most?
~ Global warming. It’s creeping me out big time!

What do you think is the secret to a good life?
~ Happiness and contentment. If you have both, everything follows. For me, I have a good life because I pray for it and whatever God gives me, it’s okay for me then. I’m blessed. We all are.

Mommy Moments: Red

mommy moments 
It’s another Friday. Before I tuck myself in bed, let me post my entry for this week’s Mommy Moments and the subject is RED.
IMG_0215
I couldn’t find any special RED for me and the little one on my EHD since all my photos for our last vacation got deleted and I don’t have a copy here with me. My FIL though have but I have to wait till our next vacation to have a copy from it. So the only thing that was left was this box with a bow (that’s what I call it). This was made by my SIL’s husband. He made it just in time for Julia’s first birthday last year.

So goodnight for now. See you all next week then.

1. Where are my digiscrapping mojo?
2. If wishes were horses a lot of people are in the racing arena right now, betting for their horses to win – it’s like betting for their wishes to come true first. LOL!
3. I'd like to see snow fall, sigh…
4. When I was a teen, I thought I will look different when I reached the 20’s age. I thought all people will have a big difference with their looks, LOL!
5. One of my mother's favorite sayings was “If spending money is for food, go ahead… spend it all…”
6. I'd have a hard time doing without my internet connection – it’s a must!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to sleeping early, tomorrow my plans include ironing clothes (agian?!) and Sunday, I want to start a weekend an irate free week!

3x Thursday: Personal Projects

1. Do you have any personal projects (it could be anything) in the works? If so, what are they? If not, got anything coming up?
- I just finished this afternoon a pregnancy portrait for a dear friend of mine. I don’t have that much accessories to bring with, except my tripod, my dslr, my kit lens and lastly my imagination + the important thing of all, I dragged along a close friend so to keep an eye on my little one while me and my pregnant friend do the shooting.

2. Have you completed any projects lately? What were they?
- as I’ve said, the photo shoot that I’ve just made was a success. Now the next thing is to furnished the shots.

3. How’s your health? Do you have any ‘health projects’ (exercising, loosing weight, figuring out health issues) that you have going on? If so, what are they? If not, are you in pretty good health?
- I’m thin. I need to gain weight. I need to fix my sleeping habits and lastly, I need to do something to have it all worked out. I don’t have much time to enroll for a gym class. I’m a working mom and aside from work, I have online task sometimes too. So I really can’t squeeze in some health projects right now. But – with all that complains, I’m thankful and blessed that me and my family are fit and healthy. Not fat, not that thin, but healthy.

“I Want…” Wednesday #78

What do you WANT from your boss/job?
- Oh dear! That’s a cool question to ask. Increase? hahaha! None for now. Our new CEO is such generous and understanding person. I like his thinking especially when he allowed us Muslim employees to wear our hijab at work. It only means that he respect our beliefs.

What else do you want this week? Share it all.
- Tomorrow Today, is a big challenge for me. I’ll be doing my first photo shoot for a dear friend who’s on due giving birth next month. Yup! It’ll be my first for a preggie portrait aka I’m-not-that-professional session photography. I hope it ends up cool. God help me!

Blog Listing

Shucks! This is such not a good news! I’ve just edited my theme as you can see (yah I know, this is like the Nth time) and I thought that my listing will not be deleted. Well, I just noticed now that all the links that I added the last time has disappeared. I’m really sorry for that. I’ll try to check on this one by one. I guess I’ll just upload it via blog rolling to make sure that all links is saved up.

Manic Monday #208 (Late Posting)

It's time for my late posting for Manic Monday.

How has your life been different than you imagined?

  • Oh that’s a hard one. Life, I may say has been good to me. Fate is just fair. We all have it’s own ways to have this and that, but I’m just leaving life one at a time. The slower it takes, the result gets better.

What lessons have you learned from your relationships?

  • I’ve learned to love myself first above all. Love has taught me to be strong and not to take all seriously. Everything happens for a reason, and that reason puts me where I am right now. And I wouldn’t change a thing if given the chance.

If you had to move to a city besides the one you currently live in, where would you move?

  • Can it be a country? Because I’m currently based in the city itself where all access can be found. If we moved out here, it’ll be a disaster! haha! So for that reason, I’d live permanently in a country with all the 4 seasons, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. When I Google, it’s giving me two answers only New York and Italy. Wow! Both countries sounds expensive! LOL! So I Google again, now it’s giving me these: Canada, Australia (some parts of it does), Switzerland, France, Upper part of Italy, Romania and some part of the United State (New York). Insha Allah, God wiling if given the chance, why not leave there.

I have an entry for this weeks’ MM. Weeew! Click on the image to join the meme.

This photo was taken a month ago. The little and I were waiting for a friend down our building since that day we were planning to go the salon to have my hair straightened up.

What else do you want this week? Share it all.

This week will be busy day for sure. I’m hoping that one of the plans will be to go to Carrefour to buy natural plants. Our boss instructed me to do something with the shop the soonest possible time. So I’m pretty sure that we’ll do something useful this weekend.

I Heart Tom & Meg

imageimage

And this is what’s making me crazy for the past few days. Oh how I love the two of them. I love how they act in both of these films. I’ve seen it for for the nth. And I love their tandem. I do wish though that they are together for real but then you know Hollywood. It’s always a mismatch. But I’m happy that Tom Hanks’ marriage life is one of the successful marriage yet in the business. I’m not sure though with Meg. I don’t follow her career as much as Tom *insert a big grin face here, hehe!

Anyway, I’m off to watch You’ve Got Mail tonight. See you in the world wide web.

Manic Monday #2

Join us here.

Are you doing what you really want to do?

  • In work not really but in my chosen faith, being a mom and wife, yes. I’m lovin’ it just as it should be.

What is your biggest fear? How can you conquer that fear?

  • I fear heights. I’ve always wanted to feel the feeling of jumping over a cliff or like those people who went to Singapore and jump over one of the highest buildings. Yikes! Just thinking of it makes my stomach upset. LOL! But really, I would do all the things if given the chance to either do bungee jumping or sky diving.

Have you settled for mediocrity in your life?

  • I believe so. I have a loving husband, a loving family and an amazing family-in-laws too (that’s a few in a million, for a person like me married to an Arab nationality), and having Julia in my life makes me COMPLETE.

Mommy Moments – shoes

DSC_7797

Sometimes I feel sorry for not updating Mommy Moments. Most of ate Chris’ topic is not yet for me that’s why most of the times I can’t post up any photos for it. But never the less, I know she understands why. Well, for today’s subject, it’s shoes. Well, last month, I bought Julia her first Croc sandals. It took us like an hour to choose what crocs is suitable for her. Her feet is kind of fatty that’s why we can’t decide which one to buy for her. Anyway, I’m looking forward to buy 2 more sets online from a friend once her stocks arrived.

Join us here on Mommy Moments ~ enjoying motherhood’s precious moments with our kids.

i’m back!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while. I’m really sorry for abandoning this blog for sometime. I was quite busy these past few months. I moved my 365 days project over to my other blog. So if you have the chance to visit, please do.

For the meantime, I changed the theme for this blog. And I’m looking at it as not a Life in the Big Tree anymore, but a Cup of Meme. My plan is to have this blog as a separate blog for all the memes, tags, q&a games, or anything under the sun with regards to blogosphere. Personal experiences of course can be put in here since most of the times, there’s a lot of memes that needs to be answered, so yah I think I can consider this as another personal blog.

Thanks for coping up with me by the way. Happy reading guys!

3x Thursday – hobbies

List and describe 3 hobbies that you have (they can be anything).

NIKON D40X DSLR – I love photography and I wish I could like do something worth it about it. I’m fond of taking photos here and there but not in a professional way.People say that I have an eye of a photographer *blushing cheeks. Kidding aside, having a good of set tools will do but since I can’t afford right now to upgrade my cam, I’m just loving each and everything my eye catches me to shoot. You can check my 365 Days Project on here.

BLOGGING – well, that’s obvious. LOL!

SINGING – during my younger days, every weekends with some friends, we used to rent those Karaoke machines then boost our voice up to the highest level, hehe! But right now, if there’s a party that includes singing, shyness comes in. No chance at all for me to sing – except inside the bathroom, LOL!

Manic Monday #1

What are you grateful for today?

  • Today we had our meeting with our manager. And I’m grateful for the work that Allah God has given me and my husband in order to provide the needs of my parents and as well our needs too.

What's missing in your life?

  • Alhamdulillah! Thanks be to Allah God almighty, everything is complete. No more, no less, just happiness.

Has the conflict and harm religion has caused outweighed the good it has produced?

  • Too much actually. There’s no use fighting against something we don’t own. Religion is based on just perceptions of those who knows too much. FEAR YOURSELF above all, no one else.
