Housewife's heaven...



A few years ago, I would strived to make sure that I'd have my own career, I couldn't imagined myself staying at home for the rest of my life...
For me, life at home was not a life at all...
I've gone through almost 2/3 of this marriage with me busy completing a bachelor degree in IIUM, a year ++ as a full time housewife in Malaysia and 2 years as a full time housewife here in Deutschland..
In that 1 year in Malaysia as a housewife, I had many plans for myself, to further studies, to get a job, to start my own business etc etc..
I just couldn't stand it, couldn't bear life as a housewife.. I found it utterly... boring...
But in these 2 years of life as housewife in Deutschland, I have not even felt the slightest boredom, I have no longer wished a life as a career woman, In fact, I don't want any other kind of life but, the one that I have now !!!
I don't know if this feeling is only temporary or not, because being a housewife in Deutschland is very highly acknowledged, and appreciated..
I got scolded once by my Deutsch teacher for saying,
"I have no profession, I'm a housewife.."
And she got all emotional and said,
"Housewife is a profession!! you cook, clean, take care of your kids, bla bla bla... maybe in M'sia it's not a profession, but here in Deutschland it is, bla bla... "
hehehe


So I guess, I've already have a profession and it's the best !!
Count my word on that, and recently, I've discovered something from one of the stores here, a painting boards... lots and lots of them, with different sizes...
Oh my, suddenly, the desire to paint again overwhelmed me heheh..



So I started last week, my 1st trial, I bought a small board 1st, in case in turned out disastrous :D
But it didn't end up disastrously, fortunately enough for me hehe..
I tried a simple and kiddy kind of drawing 1st with Fatini nearby, watching me closely, scrutinizing details of my drawing, and repeated the same compliment over and over again,
"Wow... cantik nya mama lukis !!"
For a 4 year old, cantik sgt la painting ni, but.... hubby was also impressed???!!!!
Aiyo, wait till he sees my real paintings... haha !! :D
Just kidding, i'm not that good actually, but hubby said there's part of me that has never been exposed, or that part of me that he never knew about?? hehe
Maybe he's right, there's so much desires in me, to paint, to play music, to decorate, to come up with something different, but none of it was possible in Malaysia, the exposure was just not there..
But here, everything seems possible and is made possible by existing opportunity..
I'm not so good at any of it, but I can certainly make something simple looks attractive.. but again, it lies in the eyes of the beholder..
Some people might find it not even the least attractive hehe..




For example, I found this from a different stores, and combining it...



Tadaaaaa....
Not bad huh ??



Or, this...



And this...
Just a lil bit of imagination, and there you go...

By the way, the whole house is like 'kedai bunga' already hehe..

So, what a great life a housewife can have, you have lots of time to start your hobby, to do whatever you desire, as for me, I have so many things to do in one day that time never seems enough for me...



I have lots of time to read, currently, i'm on this interesting Mary Higgins novel...
And, I have lots of time to cook too..
Not just any cook, I can try any new recipes any time I want !!



This one is called Irischer Auflauf, obtained from Nuraliza's blog, sedap tau, I suka !!
Later I'll post an entry bout this recipe :)

And also, I have lots of time to play piano, to learn Deutsch, to start painting, to spend times with the kids which is priceless, to help Afeef with his homework, to go out and have fun anytime I want, and most importantly, I have lots of time for ibadah, isn't that cool ??

Isn't housewife the best profession ??
The answer is YES to me, and it's heaven on earth, and I know, later in Malaysia, things might be different, everything might not be as sweet as it is now, but...
Life can be interesting anywhere, everywhere right??
With God's will, everything is possible..
And, the truth is always there, God has plans for all of us, it might not be something we like or what we wanted in the beginning, but turned out to be a bed of roses, and with a lil bit of realization and a positive thinking, the truth will hit you.....
That life, wherever you live it, is full of blessings, in it's very own way..
:)

zaman yg mencabar ni memang patut isteri jadi housewife..tp kengkadang life kita yg memaksa kita bekerja (mcm kat msia yg serba serbi tinggi, compare kat sini yg cukup makan dgn duit elaun)..saya pon enjoy sgt2 dgn life di sini as housewife, cuma tak tau la di Msia nanti camne, susah nk cakap hehehe...
btw cantik lukisan tuh...i like..leh lukiskan unt saya tulips tuh ek lain kali..hihi

hajar: jadi housewife kat m'sia tak se best kat sini kot huhu, sbb dekat ngan kawan2 yg semua nya ada career masing2, so kdg2 terasa jugak, and plus, org keliling yg anggap housewife ni tak educated, etc etc.. tu yg jadi x best, tapi hajar x pe, dah ada keje, teruskan aje.. macam sy ni, mmg tak de la kot nak carik keje kot, setakat sambung blaja tu insyaAllah la :) nak lukiskan tulip sure boleh, kein problem.. :) klu smpai duisberg nnt sy bwk kan as geschenk :) sy nak lukis tulip purple and pink ni, nantikan ia hehe..

liza: oh ye ke?? ade macam2 inti tak tau pun :D nanti klu liza buat, jgn lupa update, sy pasti try, sy suka sgt2 ngan Irischer auflauf ni, pada sy mmg sedap sgt la, dah 2 kali buat pun, yg 1st time buat lagi sedap, sbb kentang atas nipis aje.. kali kedua ni tertebal kentang nya, so kureng la sket rasa.. tapi still sedap :) next time buat, sy tau dah tips nye, macam liza cakap tu, kentang atas kena nipis and kasi pedas sikit, fuuuhhh sedap bol.. mmg puas hati :)

Bestnya jadi housewife kat Deutschland.. Nak pindah sana gak buleh...? Hehehe.. A'ah btl kata fauzana, surirumah di sana dan kat msia mmg sgt2 berbeza.. Mcm kes saya, jgnkan org luar, family pon ada yg pandang rendah sbb sy dah x keje sejak kawen dan lahirkan anak.. Ada degree pun x laku sbb org asyik sibuk mengutuk sbb saya ni surirumah jer.. huhuhu..
