“Who I am and Why I’m Here”


Hi..I am Nura from Malaysia, currently living in Cardiff, UK, pursuing my Masters degree in Cardiff University πŸ™‚

Living here with my husband and little family, enjoying being a mother, also a postgraduate student.

I have always been interested in blogging ; being an avid blog-reader myself, just because I found it interesting.

Blogging is better than private journal because in future, if I look back 5-10 years later, I can see my progress in future and how I have changed for the better. and maybe, my baby could also look back and read what mommy’s ideas and feelings when she was pregnant ;).

For this blog, I will write about my personal life mostly, things that I enjoy; cooking, fashion, travel (although now it is on halt due to current circumstances πŸ™‚ )

I would love to connect with people all around the world, especially those sharing the same interests.

If I blog successfully throughout 2014, I would hope to continue blogging and hope my blog could be as popular as Β some of the ones I am currently being loyal reader to. πŸ™‚


The pregnant story


It has been about 2 months since I knew I am pregnant. My husband and I was super happy when we realised I am pregnant. :).. My mom was the happiest of all as she’s so excited to have a grandchild hihi. These past 2 months been amazing. My tummy has been showing slightly – the baby bump :). Such an incredible experience! Thankfully my morning sickness is not that bad. Just occasional nausea here and there. Cant be on laptop too long or else feel sick, cant smell strong perfume; I have stopped wearing strong ones and even my husband too. My sweet husband stopped smoking the instant he knew I am pregnant :). The happiest moment! well second happiest :)..


Initially I seem to be glowing during the honeymoon period. Then this pimples just started appearing :(.. Blame the hormones..Thankfully, I changed my skincare routine and just about to enter my second trimester, my skin started to behave again :).


My appetite initially was enormous..and changed too..I have been craving just white rice with chicken or fish dishes. I actually forgotten that I have to eat healthy food only during my pregnancy lol. So after hearing advices, then I forgo my snacks and instead snacked on fruits or bread. Now I tend to cook my own meals as meals outside sometimes cause me food poisoning.


Earlier in my pregnancy I actually had 2 episodes of bleeding. Spotting to be exact. Not really the fresh blood, just brownish staining with some tummy cramps. Really got me worried. Hence my off work for 2 months. After being resting in bed completely, the bleeding stopped.Β 


My energy level was so low during the early period of pregnancy. Even climbing down the stairs will cause me breathless. Sometimes dizzy too. However now just about to enter my 2nd trimester, my energy level seems to climb back up which is awesome! πŸ™‚


The first time seeing my baby on the scan machine with the hands and feet; all actively moving just touched my heart. :). Now I cant wait for the baby to get bigger and bigger and just feels awesome enjoying my pregnancyhood. πŸ™‚



Husband and I decided to have brunch a this new and hip place called plan B. We were really excited as we never been to the new shopping complex as well, Publika which is based on everything creative and has art gallery itself. Nevertheless we got lost initially then found the place.

The place was beautiful indeed however we were late (breakfast served till 6m) and was not able to sample its breakfast menu..:( **tsk

Instead we had lunch and just had a leisurely time enjoying the shopping complex :).

Wedding diaries


Some of the pictures during my wedding day. It was 3 whole days which were the engagement day, solemnisation and the wedding ceremony itself. Such a busy and joyous occasion plus my whole family came from all over just to help and be with us to celebrate my wedding day. I could not thank you enough especially my mother who sacrificed a whole lot especially in making sure this event goes perfectly and beautifully. Thank you MOM πŸ™‚
