On Isabella ...

Ever since she entered my world, I've been besotted. Never imagining I could be enraptured in a swirl of mixed emotions from someone so tiny, I found myself being enthralled at her every move, sound and scent.

I am drawn to her innocence and the tranquility captivating me each time she’s in my arms, close to my heart. Amidst the topsy-turvy and hectic schedules we're all engulfed in, this was a welcomed change. I could not get enough.

As I held her in my arms, my thoughts wandered off to what it would be when she goes away to a foreign country with her parents next year. And I realized that though I've known her for only a month, she's the one I'll miss the most for the next three years...

Oh dear...Isabella is leaving the country? Wah so small and already know how to travel ah? Hehe. But we know how u feel GP! We also have little nieces and nephews, and a few have left us to stay in another country. We do miss them, but all thanks to technology, we can still keep in touch with our kiddos no matter how far they are. We're sure u can too! So don't feel so sad ok? =)

What a tiny little thing. Don't want her to grow up lah! Hehehe.

Mariuca October 29, 2007 3:29 PM

Thank you NAFA for such a nice comment here. You did make me feel better about Isabella going away! She'll be in UK soon, sigh... just when I'm getting used to having a baby niece around, she has to leave! But ur right, we can still keep in touch thanks to technology! You're da best la NAFA! :):):)

Hehe! No problem. Or we have a better idea! Why not have your own child? Ah...that would make u much much happier. =D

Mariuca October 29, 2007 3:41 PM

Own child huh? Ok, that is under consideration NAFA ;) But Isabella is oredi here, no need to wait another 9 months for a baby to arrive he he he...

Marzie! What you described is the joy of parenthood that I felt when my daughter was born. Like you I also felt it when my dear little nephews were born...they aren't so little anymore two are pushing 18 and one 8!

But that was before we had a child of our own too and sharing in the warmth of the little babies is really something special. SO I know exactly how you feel! :)

Great pic by the way.

Marzie, isabella is simply adorable. I love to look at little babies & held them in the arms just like you do. Where are they heading to? You're gonna miss them for 3 yrs. By the time she returns would be able to call you Aunty :)

Thanks GK! I love this pic, Isabella looks like a tiny doll he he he!

GK, imagine if I'm already feeling this sense of attachment with my niece, what will happen when I eventually get my own baby girl? :):):)

Genie Princess

Mariuca October 29, 2007 4:04 PM

Janice! Isabella is heading to UK, so far away right? And thank you for the compliment, she's too young to say it now but I know Isabella loves being called adorable! :):):)

kimfei October 29, 2007 4:35 PM

She is only 1 months old??she is so cute,is she sleeping in ur arm??Quite nice for her actually since she can travel by plane when she is one month old and I am already 22 but yet to have a chance to catch on flight..sigh..

Mariuca October 29, 2007 4:53 PM

Aiyo Kim fei!! You are only 22 is it? So damn young he he he... Anyway, Isabella won't be leaving until next year, when she's around 6-7 months, so it's okay for her to travel by plane then. I hope u get to take a flight somewhere soon! :):):)

Bobby October 29, 2007 6:59 PM

I'm sure you can visit her and she will visit you! What a precious little baby:)

You look stunning in this photo Marzie!!! You and Isabella are two super lovely ladies:):):)

Mariuca October 29, 2007 7:03 PM

Thanks Bobby, Isabella is precious isn't she? :):):)

Well, if I can save up enough money to visit her in UK, then I guess I'll get to see her when she leaves, so wish me luck!

Jean Chia October 29, 2007 10:37 PM

marzie, well said! That's exactly how i felt when chloe came into my world.

oh, she's leaving next year for 3 yrs? that's so sad. Berat hati lor! I bet you are trying to get your equipments ready like the webcam and microphone so that you can keep in touch with your Isabella. Must keep that closeness always.

She's such a lovely little baby girl. Pls lightly kiss her forehead for me! :) Good bye, Isabella!

Jean Chia

Adrian October 29, 2007 10:48 PM

GP! The feeling will be magnified a hundred times! You think this is attached and close...think again! If you...No...when you have your own you will feel like you've never felt before!

From the time you find out...and while he/she slowly grows inside you and you feel the movement tickle and jostle...until you finally see a tiny little face all covered in goo looking helpless and fragile....you'll never feel the same! never! :)

Mariuca October 29, 2007 11:39 PM

Hi Jean, She's leaving next year only but still..that's like just a few months away! :( I haven't thought of setting up the webcam and stuff, thanks for suggesting it! Good thing ur Chloe the stress reliever is not going anywhere far! :):):)

Genie Princess

Mariuca October 29, 2007 11:41 PM

GK!!! A hundred times? Oh boy, dunno if my heart can take it la LOL!! And I'll never feel the same again? How will that be I wonder... I guess it's something that I should be looking forward to and not scared of huh? :):):)

Emila Yusof October 30, 2007 1:50 AM

Marzie! Pity you...baru nak bermanja dengan Isabella...but don't worry, you can always visit Isabella in UK!

LadyJava October 30, 2007 3:07 AM

Liza October 30, 2007 4:23 AM

Oh Isabella is so cute! Three years is very short, you won't even notice it :)

parisukat October 30, 2007 5:05 AM

I have a cute 3 month old baby niece here at home.. I'm glad she's not going anywhere... Well, not just yet, I guess. But if ever she has to go somewhere else just like your lil Isabella, I'd surely miss her too.

FL Sam October 30, 2007 7:29 AM

GP, Isabella is so sweet and adorable. I am sure you sayang her very much.

I like NAFA suggestion that you consider having one yourself so that when Isabella leave the country, you will have a baby to take her place. Hehe.

Happy Tuesday. :)

WaterLearner October 30, 2007 10:00 AM

Oh she looks so sweet. And hey GP, you look good in that photo too!

Mariuca October 30, 2007 10:23 AM

Emila, expense mah! But UK would make a nice vakasi lokasi! :):):)

Genie Princess

Mariuca October 30, 2007 10:25 AM

Hi LJ, she'll be doing a whole bunch of other stuff besides walking! Must spend more time with her and snap away my camera till she leaves! ;)

PS. Oh yeah, songket la this year, show la ur baju raya he he he... :):):)

Mariuca October 30, 2007 10:53 PM

Wah ha ha ha kena puji! Thank you LJ, and of course the focus of conversation will shift to kids once you have them. I'm sure u notice that amongst ur friends with kids. ;)

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:46 PM

*Hari ini saya nak nyanyi lagi Isabella, ehem ehem...*

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:48 PM

tapi ni lagu kumpulan Search, ok..here goes:

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:48 PM

Isabella adalah
Kisah cinta dua dunia
Mengapa kita berjumpa
Namun akhirnya terpisah
Siang jadi hilang
Ditelan kegelapan malam
Alam yang terpisah
Melenyapkan sebuah kisah...

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:48 PM

Terbayang lambaianmu
Salju terbakar kehangatan
Dunia di penuhi
Warna berseri bunga cinta
Kita yang terlena
Hingga musim berubah
Mentari menyepi
Bernyalalah api cinta

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:49 PM

Dia Isabella
Lambang cinta yang lara
Terpisah kerana
Adat yang berbeza
Cinta gugur bersama
Daun daun kekeringan...

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:49 PM

Haluan hidupku
Terpisah dengan Isabella...

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:49 PM

Tapi aku terpaksa
Demi cintaku Isabella...

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:49 PM

Moga dibukakan
Pintu hatimu untukku

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:49 PM

Akan terbentang jalan
Andainya kau setia
Oh! Isabella....

Emila Yusof October 21, 2008 5:50 PM

ok everybody repaeat kat Dia Isabella....
