Yoga-ta stop visiting TYI Diaries and dot WordPress!

leave a comment »

Through my dusty Nuffnang dashboard, I came to notice that some of you (well, about 6++ of you that) seem to still be opening The Yoga Instructor Diaries to be directed to this fairly new blogsite of mine – on a daily basis! It is mind-boggling yet flattering though (as you could have just typed ‘ninie’ and your URL should show suggestions of this new site, no?).

I have to shout a loud THANK YOU anyway for that, because I still get not bad a passive income from Nuffnang for The Yoga Instructor Diaries even after five months of having stopped blogging there.

Today, I plead all of you to change your bookmark / sidebar link from https://ninieahmad.wordpress.com (and http://theyogainstructordiaries.blogspot.com of course) to http://ninieahmad.com as this domain is now hosted on a private server 😉 and I won’t be writing from WordPress anymore after this post.

See you at http://ninieahmad.com after this click!

I take care of myself now to prepare taking care of my children. In the future.

I believe that

  • it will be hard to love someone else when we don’t love ourselves wholeheartedly
  • it will be painful to accept others’ flaws and weaknesses when we don’t acknowledge ours, and
  • it is not going to be easy to take care of other living beings (cats included) if we can hardly take care of ourselves and our own health

Speaking of taking care, I was checking this picture captured during my best friend’s wedding last Saturday,

As I tried to protect her and her beautiful dress from being stepped on, I thought I look like I was doing a Chair pose (Utkatasana) with Rihanna singing “you can be under my umbrella, ella, ella..” at the background, ha ha!

Another almost similar photo was this priceless shot captured one Sunday morning in last August during my recreational basketball session,

I should have just sticked to yoga. And futsal. And hockey.

And isn’t my Julie‘s Luna Alyssa the cutest baby in the world?

At 13-month old, she is already half our height!

Take care, big love and promising January ahead.

I am looking forward to renew friendships and celebrate love (albeit others) in 2010.

What’s a better way to start a new year when

  • you are given the honour to be the maid-of-honour for your bestfriend’s wedding on the first day of 2010?

  • and when you see yourself with your other bestfriend (whom you were her maid-of-honour) gracing January issue of Harper’s Bazaar

My dearest Fara Dila,

Congratulations for bringing your relationship to another milestone. Having known (and having shared embarassing secrets with) you since we were 13, I am honoured to be a small part of your big day today!

My lovely Juliana,

Never have I met anyone who is only 43kg at her most pregnant and still looks smaller than me at six-months pregnant (yes, she was four-months along as time of shooting the article above)! My prayers go to for your second baby and I can’t wait to plan your baby shower again when you come back from Holland in February.

Nevertheless I have been a maid-of-honour for the SEVENTH time and that it’s not funny attending weddings and baby showers when I am single yet again, I am excited to witness more friendships rekindled, love celebrated and beautiful babies born in 2010.

Love and a blessed year.

My dearest Fara Dila,

Congratulations for bringing your relationship to another milestone. Having known (and shared secrets with) you since we were 13, I am looking forward to be a small part of your big day today!
