We are back!

Yes, we are back. Everyone is doing just fine. Things are gradually getting back to normal. These are photos of Nadeen.

Nadeen with a pretty lady on board... hihihi!



Playing in the bassinet



At last asleep & mama managed to indulge her meal in peace


Just woke up, irritated with the camera


Nadeen in a different attire. She pooed & stained her dress. Hmmm...


At Dubai International Airport

Home sweet home. Really missed the girls! Surprisingly, I survived. Perhaps I was rather occupied with Nadeen most of the time which in a way helped me to focus my mind elsewhere instead of my 3 girls back home. But on the third day I was defeated by Balqis. She asked her sister to ring me up, wanting to talk to me. I gave a "hello" & on the other line she uttered "Mama ayang Aqis...?" (Do you love me, Mama?). That did it! Tears came pouring down my freshly blushed cheeks. According to my mom, Balqis did not whine for me at all during my absence. She understood that I was not around. So, it was merely me. Crying out of guilt!

I could tell that they missed Nadeen. Kept asking me about Nadeen. In fact, Nadeen did long for her sisters too. There was once I went out with a friend & she brought along her 3-year-old daughter. Nadeen really could not take her eyes off that girl. Smiling & saying things to her. It almost brought tears to my eyes...

It was real hot in Dubai. Summer is indeed approaching. The temperature was 40 degree C. We stayed indoor most of the time. The big sale has not yet begun. So, did not really do much shopping. Just things for my girls.

Nadeen behaved so well through out our trip. It was only the 4th day that she looked uncomfortable. Started to cough & her skin turned red, dry & a bit flaky. It must had been the hot weather. A pharmacist recommended us this baby moisturiser. It did the magic. Now, I feel that her skin is softer than before we went to Dubai.

Baby Avalon Organics - 100ml ( DH57)

Dubai from our hotel window. I could not really snap many photos in Dubai as my hands were occupied. HB was busy, most of the time I was out with Nadeen & a friend.




The infamous traffic - what Dubai is synonym with.


We took a night flight back to KL. Nadeen was rather too uncomfortable to sleep on her own in the bassinet. I hugged her most of the time. She slept but not me.


Nadeen at KLIA. Notice her red skin..



At home, whilst the girls exploring & parading with the things I bought for them... I just had to surrender to the luxury of my own bed. Paying back my sleepless night & perhaps jet lag did contribute a bit.

Wardah,
I'm happy to be back... muahhh!

jabishah said...

Myn,
How are you now? Dah sihat? It's ok, no problem at all. In fact the weather was too hot for you. Demam, blk pulak nanti.
Guess you heard about the deal. Am no longer thrilled. Klu dpt that will put us in a big dilemma.
And btw... Silicon Oasis is full. Hv to wait for another somewhere in Al Warqah or Mirdiff.
Salam to Leen.

Hi Jabishah, you sure you a mother of three kids? 4?
Glad to read you had a fabulous time and a safe journey home.
And Nadeen, she's absolutely gorgeous! Just like her mother. Beauty sure runs in your family.
Stay beautiful, Jabishah and get some sleep, Lee.

I know exactly how u feel missing your children, felt the same way too when I went to LA last month.....so, Ja, nak pindah Dubai ker? That's the purpose of the trip kan? I could read between the lines (heheh)...

Shera said...

Ja,
I personally feel that Nadeen is the trip-saviour, otherwise u surely would have had the other three girls in mind all the time!!! And that would kill the whole adventure. Anyway, glad that u r home safe and sound...The girls sure suka giler mama dah balik. Or did they sigh??? Hahaha...Kidding darling.

Cutenya Nadeen ni...dengan rashes lagi cute!

Shera said...

Eh ye ke Ja that u r moving to Dubai? I would second the idea, after all u don't have job commitments which stops u from going. Apa yang dilemma nya? Chewah, sibuk je aku ni!!!

Leen said...

Sob..sob..jadik ke nak pindah Dubai? Alahai sedihnye. Dah la dok Puchong, once in a blue moon baru leh jumpa, ini kan pulak kalau dah di Dubai.

Anyway, good luck. Just whatever you guys decided to do, I know it's the best for the family.

You (sob..sob..) got (sob...sob...)my blessing (..sob...sob)

jabishah said...

Hi Uncle Lee,
Hahaha! Thank you.You get the figure right.. 4!
Have a nice day ;-)

jabishah said...

Dikny,

Thought you brought along the whole troop to LA ;-) It was difficult kan? That's part of being a mom I guess...

Editors are so good reading between the lines eh? Not finalized yet. That's all I can share ;-)

Take care!

jabishah said...

Shera,

Amongst my friends, I like your type - straight from the shoulder. Hehehe!

In dilemma due to the benefits given. Covers only my 3 girls not Nadeen. Education mahal woah... sana. Silap2 aku start kerja balik ni! Might blog about it one of these days.

Take care now.

jabishah said...

Leen,

HAHAHA! Mind me laughing. You don't really make a good picture sobbing.. hehehe.

Look on a brighter side. Free accommodation mah for you shopping in Dubai... Still too early to tell anyway. Ada rezeki ada. Klu takde rezeki am still offering the free lunch in Puchong... ;-)

Have a great day!

lizamurni said...

u know what Ja, it's been my "kinda out-of-the-world" dream to live abroad, not for a holiday but to actually stay there for few years (i'm weird, i know)....tapi if you kat Dubai, boleh ler i pay you a visit coz Along is in Abu Dhabi, dah dekat tuh....

i didn't bring along the whole troop to LA, just my eldest...

eileen said...

nadeen - eileen...mcm sama jer..hehehe

jabishah said...

dikny,

nah... you're not a weirdo but rather different in a venturesome way. it took me quite some time (years ok) to give the consent to jemir. biasalah.. i kan anak mak.

is it really Along in AD?with his family? brp tahun dah?

enjoy your qeekend...

jabishah said...

eileen,

sama but tak serupa ;-) ring me up once ur in KL. take care.
