As a WFHM (Work From Home Mom) the biggest challenge is to find that balance between being a Mama and a Producer all under one roof. More often than not, I feel guilty when I have to tell my daughter “Sorry Sayang, Mama has got to work..” and then divert her attention to one of those popular children videos on YouTube. That is why, I cherish our weekends. They don’t have to be elaborate, because to me the most important thing is that we are all there.
1.30pm — Lazy Sundays. There is just something special about that particular day of the week, that somehow allows you to not really care about time wastage. For me and my family, it’s all about chilling and somehow, letting the day run us. I guess, we don’t get that luxury enough, as sometimes even on Sundays, we might have to be out for shoot, or if not, still be banging on the computer for deadlines and such. So, yea, Sundays.
2.22pm — Hanging out at VXX Cooperative for a nice all-day brunch with the babies. Our friend is one of the owners of the cafe, and the one thing we love about it is that it takes us on a gastronomical journey everytime we dine there. And the ambience is definitely an experience of its own kind. Definitely one of our favourites.
4pm — My hubby and I used to run a cafe called Rouse. Till now, we call it our first baby. And this happened before our kids came into our lives. It was definitely an experience of a lifetime for us. The most expensive kind of education, and ironically nothing money can buy.
5.15pm — King William Chocolate; my first ever order from Boost. And that was back in 2007, in Sydney, Australia, along Coogee Beach. I was on a 2-month hiatus, fresh from a break up and ready to take Sydney by storm. However, I ended up just crashing at my cousin’s place the whole time. Still, IT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE TRIP EVER.
5.55pm — My son was born on 8th March 2017, a day before his scheduled C-sect delivery. I thought that was pretty neat. Although he didn’t come out as heavy as his sister, who weighed 3.88kg at birth, he totally caught up to her by the time he reached his 3rd Month mark, and took the scale at a whopping 8.3kg! Suddenly, I had a pretty massive son. Lol. But with that comes the reality that he fits nothing at home now, and so, we have to shop for new clothes. Currently, he fits the sizing of a 9-12 month old. And he is only 4 months. I wonder what it’s going to be like when he hits his first year.
6.26pm — Being a parent, means having to prepare yourself for anything, and most of the time, it means leakages, and having to change in the middle of Zara. Thank goodness for the nice saleslady who redirected me to the changing room. WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT?! There are so many things that I have learnt from both my kids, and one of them was surprisingly patience, because prior to this, I prided myself for being a pretty patient person. Well, they surely proved me wrong. And so our day ends, rather abruptly I must add, but still am very thankful for our lovely little Sunday together, Onto the next, In Sha Allah.
