MEE T THE NEIGH­BOURS

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Contents -

EZRINA NAZRI, a home­maker who re­cently gave birth to her third daugh­ter, spoke to Nawaf Rah­man about her three girls. Here’s an ex­cerpt of the con­ver­sa­tion with the fam­ily. First of all, con­grats on your third child! Ezrina Thank you! Did you have crav­ings dur­ing your preg­nancy?

EZ I craved Malay food. I ate Malay food ev­ery day for the past nine months [ laughs]. When I had Em­bun and Yumi, I was heav­ily on In­dian food. You have three daugh­ters now. Do you have any plans to add a boy to your fam­ily in the fu­ture? Ridzwan Haha. I’m blessed with three girls and I think we’ll stick with girls only. Can you de­scribe each daugh­ter’s per­son­al­ity?

EZ Em­bun is an emo­tional and talk­a­tive kid. And be­ing the el­dest, when­ever she and Yumi play to­gether, she will de­cide what Yumi’s role is. For ex­am­ple, if Em­bun is Elsa, Yumi is Olaf. Yumi is not even Ana! [ laughs].

R Yumi, she’s cheeky and gen­er­ous. She’s friendly with ev­ery­one and she’s a foodie!

EZ For Rose, we’ll see. Haha! How has moth­er­hood changed the way you see things? EZ Be­ing a mother, ev­ery day is a new ad­ven­ture. I learned a lot and am still learn­ing on how to tackle this and that. For me, it’s okay to make mis­takes, and then to make sure to learn from them. Also, moth­er­hood has made me be­come less judge­men­tal. You have a play area for the kids in the house. That’s cool!

EZ Yes we do. We spend most of our time in the liv­ing area, so we cre­ated a spe­cial ‘art space’ for them. The girls love the space be­cause they can do their ‘art’ and play to­gether there. Your In­sta­gram feed (@dar­ling.moi) is filled with shots of your daugh­ters. And they can pose very well. So cute!

EZ Haha. Well be­hind the scenes, it took sev­eral at­tempts to take a nice pic­ture with them. But usu­ally, Yumi will follow her sis­ter’s pose and ex­pres­sion. How was your Raya cel­e­bra­tion this year? EZ Not good! I’m still in con­fine­ment pe­riod so I can’t eat ren­dang and other food. Em­bun It was fun! I like to play with my cousins. Did you get a lot of ‘duit raya’ this year? EM and Yumi Yessss! EZ But guess where some of the money went? Toys ‘R’ Us!
