Thank You Mummy and Daddy

It’s super easy to say thank you. When you’re given what you need. When you’re given what you want. When someone lends a hand. We can just simply say, thank you. Thank you is a very easy thing to say but what’s difficult is when things are done just so often that we tend to take advantage of the situation and we just say thank you out of habit and not because we really mean it. Or we do mean it, we just don’t express it well enough.

Our parents have done so much for us since before the day we were born. Mothers care for themselves in order to care for us in the womb. Fathers get hit with a parent truck the day we are born and their lives change forever. There are more responsibilities, extra effort put into everything to provide the best for their children. Us.

Have we said thank you enough? For many of us, expressing ones feelings can be difficult., especially when it comes to doing it face to face. We tend to get shy or even our ego’s take over and we don’t want to seem small or overpowered. Too much? Why not try thanking them in words. I know I’m much more expressive in writing than I am verbally. Birthday cards I give out usually have essays in them. LOL

Malaysia’s Resume is a platform where Malaysian’s can contribute by writing a story, create a video and/or even pictorials about the people they care for the most. If you’re lucky, you’d be able to see my story to my beloved parents in there too!

If you feel like you want to write a thank you story to your parents or any one for that matter, register at www.malaysiaresume.com and submit your story.

HP Print Apps

HP print apps – easy family fun!

Technology is so advanced nowadays with gadgets and gizmos a-plenty; it’s pretty hard to keep up. Luckily our printers don’t really need to be changed as much as we try keep up-to-date with our phones.

Back in the day, when choosing a printer, it was always about print quality and many prints a cartridge of ink can produce. These days, same case but there are WAY MORE functions then there use to be. Kadang2 I pon boleh pening yo!

Printers started out as black and white printers, then colour printers, and then they added a scanner function, then adding a fax machine. But what is awesome is that these new functions are seriously awesome!!

Today, multi-function all-in-one printers with print, scan, copy and fax features are easy to find and now with the new- aged advanced technology, say bye-bye to the hassle of hooking up cables to your computers and laptops. Most printers now also have a built in wi-fi function which allow us to print even from our mobile phones!

I have always been using a HP printer which has been treating me great for many years. As much as i am a tree-hugger, i’m a very physical worker and i need to touch what i read and edit with a pen. I’m old-skool like that.

Recently i received a little gift which was the new HP Ink Advantage 4515 printer which is AWESOME! On top of the printer already producing excellent quality prints and photos, HP had a little addition to the features – Print Apps by HP. These are essentially special print apps available exclusively for use on HP Web-enabled printers. A print app is a shortcut to printing content from the Web directly from your printer, without the use of a computer.

Print apps give you direct access to great pre-formatted content from HP and leading companies from around the world, like Dreamworks, Crayola and Rovio (of Angry Birds fame). You can choose from a growing library of print apps making printing faster, simpler and more useful than ever. And the best of all, these apps are FREE!!! As long as you purchase a HP web-enabled printer, the world of these apps is your oyster!

Steps on how to download exclusive HP Print Apps:

Step 1: Create an HP ePrint Centre account or if you already have an account, log into hp.nu/C3qCA

Step 2: Collect your printer’s claiming code by following the instructions here: hp.nu/C3rdV

Step 3: Click “Add a device” on the Devices tab and enter your printer’s claiming code.

Step 4: All set! You can now browse through the exclusive HP Printables and download them into your HP Printer.

Once you’ve downloaded from HP Printables wide range of free content which include Dreamworks, Angry Birds, High five, Leapfrog, Origami, Math Olympiad onto your HP printer, they will then be available to print out directly from your HP printer without the need of your computer and you can even schedule your prints for automatic delivery on the days you choose.

It’s always lots of fun when it comes to printing because then i can make colour books for my daughter Ariana and even print out worksheets for her as she loves learning. Every day Ariana would be begging me to print out more and more and i wouldn’t have to feel lazy turning on the computer and searching for things to print as it is all already loaded on the printer itself. TOO EASY!!!

Mummy, daddy, don’t fret! There’s stuff for us too! For brain busters like myself, there are crosswords. A big library of recipes are also available for printing for cooking lovers (like myself too) and even apps for those who want to keep up to date with the latest news (NOT like myself).

All in all, HP has been around for the longest time and I can trust them and their printing products. I am always a fan of what they have to offer.

Sponsored Post: My Sunsilk Story

MY SUNSILK STORY

Donning the hijab was a HUGE step in my life, a challenging one too. I refused to go out in public and my social life turned a whole 360degrees and I felt like I was rejected.  ‘Dugaan’, they call it. I faced many obstacles which in a way had affected my self esteem. All I see the tudung is as a piece of cloth on my head, I’m still the same person I always was, just a bit more timid.

NO MORE BAD HAIR DAYS

The humidity & heat and the hijab don’t come hand in hand. We tend to complain about how hot it is and me having a heavy head of hair, being cover on a daily basis in the sun isn’t very comfortable either. My solution? Sunsilk Lively and Clean shampoo!sunsilk menemanimu After using Sunsilk, My hair feels much fresher, less itchy, I feel much more confident and my hair smells great too! Hubby loves how good my hair smells and that’s a plus point! Even my tudungs aren’t stinky from a long day out (with kids) – I LOVE it!

HIJAB IN THE KITCHEN

With the whole Raya buzz, it’s inevitable for me to be in the kitchen covered from head to toe as people come and go to visiting and eat, eat and eat. Being cooped in a kitchen cooking, fully clothed, hijab is a bag of sweat, discomfort and itchy head of hair waiting to happen. Using Sunsilk Lively and Clean helps me avoid the itchy scalp and allows me to cook with ease – minus the sweat.

MY ASPIRATIONS

Being confident with my new appearance, I am getting back out in the open and putting my life on full speed ahead. I have started a own hijab line under L’adorn, a new parenting/child enrichment website (www.withlovemummy.com), I currently teach drama for kids between the age 3-6  and I am now venturing off to making Homemade Baby Food for the mummies who have no time to do it themselves.

Confidence comes from the self, not from the people around you. Your life is your own journey and only you have that steering wheel to keep it moving. For most women, our hair is an important asset and keeping it clean and healthy is a must, tudung or not.

Sunsilk Menemanimu

I’ve shared my hijab story at https://apps.facebook.com/sunsilkmenemanimu and maybe you should too! With a grand prize of RM20,000cash prize for you to achieve your aspiration, there’s nothing more easier to do. Not only that, you will also get a T‐shirt with your tudung journey illustration and also Sunsilk Products!!
