As this was the first time, or shall I say the first 'test', we chose Empire Gallery which is only 10 minutes distance from home. We plan to go there after iftar & Maghrib prayer since it's a weekday and Fadzil was working.
Now that I have 3 child to get ready for plus myself, I started to get them dressed as early as 5.30pm! It started with the twinnies, I bathe them, dressed them, and later tandem feed them. As soon as Faiqa & Falisya were in lalaland, I bathe Faaz and dressed him up, packing up my handbag a.k.a the diaper bag. Believe it or not, it took me 2 1/2hours to complete all of these, without me and Fadzil getting ready yet! Huhu, I really need a helper...
By the time I bathe and got ready, its already Maghrib and time to break the fast. Soon, it was time to feed the twins again. In order to cut short the time, I chose a simple combination of outfit with the main criteria of... THE LESSEN NEED TO IRON :P So what I wore was...
a black chiffon palazzo pants which I bought from ThePoplook (note: chiffon material is less crumple, and no ironing needed if you hang it nicely)
match it with my cotton ruffled Zara top (note: ruffled sleeve need not ironing except the body part hence saving time :P)
and complement it with a crumpled scarf from viscose + cotton material (note: of course a crumpled scarf need not to be iron! :D)
Well, I have save some time to get ready. As for the makeup, I only applied the basic stuff; compact powder, mascara & lipstck and I was done! still can't afford to melawa-lawa but enough to look less pale (still, can't hide the blackish eye bags...redha je la :P)
Managed to pump some milk while Fadzil got ready. I need the EBM as standby, in case both girls need to be fed at the same time later, Fadzil can assist one while I feed the other...
Alhamdulillah, we managed to arrived there by 8.30pm. The triple F was asleep, of which supposed to make our shopping trip easier, by right. Unfortunately, it did not happened that way. We were surprised and overwhelmed by the attention we got as soon as we entered the mall (I totally forgot about this as I was too long confined in the house, and perhaps too excited to go out after quite sometime!). While walking, while browsing, in the lift, at the counter, and while eating...there were people who greeted us and admiring the babies. Paying for items at the counter took at least extra 5 minutes for a short "interview" of the twins, missed the lift to go up, and go out from the lift at the wrong level due to answering some questions about the twins..something that we never encountered before. Nevertheless, we appreciate the share of joy of seeing a pair of twins :)
So most of the time at the Empire, we only went to one shop to another, browsing and surveying. The only things that we managed to buy was the twins' 1st shoes (kasut raya :D), a hulla hoop for Faaz (he's been requesting for it this week) and white raddish for me...haha! you read it correctly, I was hunting for white raddish, one of my milk boaster. The mini market near our house don't sell it so terpaksa la cari, nasib kat Jaya Supermarket ada! :)
Eid Mubarak is just a few days to go..and we definitely looking forward to the second (and more trips) to the mall. May it be a smooth sailing journey this time as we know already what to expect. Really hope the kids will be at their best behavior too! If not, alamatnya tak beraya la kitaorang...hehe.
I know by tomorrow most of you will start the Eid holiday and go back to the hometown. Drive safe, ok ;) With an open heart and humbleness, I seek forgiveness for my wrongdoings through actions or words. HAPPY EID MUBARAK everyone! :)
