Hello, Wooooorrrrllldddd!

Alhamdulillah ya Allah, the most precious gift from Allah has finally arrived and her name is Daria Richelle! Our baby giiiirrlllllll! :)

Daria originates in Greek language and means "owner of goodness". Daria or Dariya is an indirect Quranic name for girls that means good-mannered, lady-like, intelligent, perceptive. Meanwhile, Richelle is a female French name. It originates in Germanic language and means "daring power" or "brave ruler". I chose the name myself and proposed it to hubby, which took a while for him to approve heheh. Anyway, Daria was born on Sunday, July 23rd, 2017. So she's 4 days old today! Yay! You know what's interesting? Both Daria and I are born on a 23rd, and on a Sunday too. Ha! :)

Even though it's been 4 days only, it hasn't been so easy specifically for me. Aside from the physical pain post natural-birth (e.g. it really hurts to sit) and having your breasts swollen as breast milk starts flowing, I can feel it to my bones, and see it through his eyes, Shahmeer's eyes, of how sad and jealous he is. I didn't know this was going to be the difficult part. Everyday I cry when I am alone. I see his eyes in my head, and I know what those eyes mean. It shows an unconditional love of a boy to her mother, and he is scared of losing me. And I feel just the same way. Somehow, I am sad because my love for him will be shared, even though I will always love him just as much. I kiss him and hug him every time I can, but he always acts cold. And in the night, he would come to me and sleep on my legs. You see, even typing this made me cry. I don't know how to describe it in words, but I just love Shahmeer very very very much. InshaaAllah both Shahmeer and Daria will make great siblings and we all love each other very much too. Amin ya Allah.

See you later, blog! Gotta feed my baby girl. Nice chatting with you! :)

Fried Chicken Once Again

A casual Sunday. Took Shahmeer to the playground, and had dinner with my family at a small village. Simple pleasures! :)

Big Earrings Are Better

Running my businesses from far away, I have to actually wait to get my hands on my own products haha. Everything is visualized, conceptualized, designed and crafted over emails and lots of photos. After they are all finalized and produced and launched, then my team will send the products to me. And when the time comes that I actually have them in front of me, I feel soooooo happy. Just like today when my Up earrings arrived safely here in Switzerland. Woohoo! :)

It's Gonna Be Okay

No matter what the problem is, it's always nice to hear someone telling you 'that it's gonna be okay'. I think it's not about how factual that statement is, but more about hearing what you want to hear when you just need the slightest hope.

Sunflower Madness

I have been wanting to visit the sunflower fields in Provence but the idea of going through a 4-hours drive just kills me because honestly, I pee like every 10-20 minutes nowadays and my butt hurts when I sit too long due to my pregnancy. But hey, lucky me, lucky us, we found a beaaaaautiful sunflower field just like 5 minutes away from our home. OMG! I am so so so so happppyyyyyyyyyyy....:)
