Quick update

Today is my first day back at work. Beratnya pale ni, going through the office emails, melayan colleagues yg bertanya khabar lagi, menahan ngantuk lagi..my oh my terasa sungguh kepala tgh berdenyut skang ni.

Leteh beraya toksah nak cakap la. Leteh sangat. Leteh but enjoyable. Mummy ada misi tersendiri, raya sebulan kan? Agak-agak bole tak Mummy kumpul duit raya Afiqah sampai 1K? heheh..tapi kalo nak buat camtu kene pegi byk rumah lagi la kan haha. Bebudak zaman skang, mewah betul duit rayanya. Dulu seingat aku, d maximum amount of duit raya I got was RM400++ kut. Dia ni dah tahap Mummynya sediakan wallet khas utk dia ni haa nak letak duit rayanya hehe. Dasyat, dasyat. Kang dah besar sket mintak handbag dari Mummy ek.

Afiqah plak masa minggu raya ni laa dia dah start kenal org. 98% org yg ditemui sume dia tak serasi. Surprisingly dgn strangers dia ok, dgn sedare plak yg dia memilih. Even dgn my MIL pun dia tanak dah hehe nak kata apa ye tak? Punya la suspen nak bwk dia ke nursery lepas raya ni bila tgk dia dah berperangai sebegitu. Org keliling pun dok menambahkan suspen cakap “abeh la ko, cuti bersalin lama gile, anak dah selesa dgn ko mesti dia tanak berenggang bila hantar gi nursery nanti”

Tapi..alhamdulillah Afiqah serasi sgt dengan pengasuh kat nursery tu. Dia tak kisah langsung ditinggalkan kat sana, siap sengeh2 bila kita ckp Bye dgn dia, even bila nak amik dia dari nursery dia plak bole sombong dgn Mummy dia..tanak let go of the babysitter plak dah huhu..aih anakku ini.

Afiqah dah sunat dah semalam! Yeay! Menangis pun kejap je, strong girl la dia πŸ™‚ Cuma buat masa 2-3 hari ni my gynae cakap pampers kalo bole jgn biar lembab sangat,

Pre macam-macam syndrome

Ok I hope entry ni will be super short..coz I’m supposed to masukkan Softlan in a few minutes time in the washing machine, I’m supposed to start cooking in the kitchen which I know I’m going to be super stress because this is my first time cooking for my family. Sungguh tak reti masak utk ramai org, masak utk kami berdua pun rasa dah cukup tunggang langgang. Basically I’m not supposed to be online punnn..tapi dah nama tak reti masak, haruslah menggoogle resipi utk disalin haha. Printer tade..tulis secara manual jela nooo.

Ok dah terpesong dah. Aku ni kalo berblog tade intro bagai cam nak wat novel bole tak..tsk.

Hmm. No mood for Raya mmg sudah sedia maklum bagi anda yg mengfollow saya dlm FB..mmg itu saja la yg saya dok pokpek selama beberapa hari ni kan. Baju raya Afiqah dah menimbun, kueh raya dah terlebih banyak. I bought 3, MIL gave 3, my own mother bringing 6! soo silalah ke teratak kami utk menjamah kueh yeee..not gonna do open house, budget tarak. Kami berdua pekerja swasta dan NGO yg tidak mempunyai luxury bonus berbulan2, gaji tertunggak, duit raya pree dari kerajaan and what nots. Apa yg ada dlm gaji itu la duit yg diguna utk raya. So yeah..kami pokai. Hubby pun tak beli pape pun utk raya. Yillek. So, kami tidak akan sedondon ye ketika raya pertama. Dah tak larat utk memujuk dia membeli baju Melayu, tidak larat juga utk memujuknya utk menerima pelawaan aku utk membelanjanya baju. So yeah..no sedondon jiwang karat pose for Raya ye. Tapi we’re open to all visitors coming to our house..sila laa datang ye πŸ™‚

Sigh..I’m cranky coz I’m missing my little bambam. My lil one, my Liyana Afiqah. Tomorrow is the last day for her trial session with the nursery before Raya break and then it’s full time nursery for her. Starting from this week, we’ve been training her to be there for one whole day. I’ll be sending her off around 745-800, then both me and hubs will be fetching her around 545pm. Alhamdulillah she is doing great. No tantrums, no withdrawal syndrome. Nothing. Pegi dgn keadaan gedik, tersengeh2, arms and legs kicking everywhere penuh kegedikkan. Balik dalam keadaan tenang dan mamai huhu dah ngantuk lepas dimandikan by the babysitter. Minum susu ok, tido ok, sume la ok dia ni. Alhamdulillah, so I guess there’s nothing to worry about la kan?

True. But, I feel that it takes time for her to warm up with us once we fetch her from the nursery. I know its because dia mamai, laloq sume la cukup tapi rasa cam sejam lebih baru dia stimulated enough nak be back to her old self. Terasa anakku sombong denganku..huwaa. Ok Mummy dah emo haha. Hubby cakap dia merajuk coz kita hantar dia p nursery. Sangat, sangat. Pfft.

Tu la kan, what to do but I’m grateful I got 4 months to look after her myself before passing my role to the babysitter. At least I’m grateful that I’m the first witness to see her progress in her milestones and the last person she sees before she dozed off to sleep. I’m so grateful that I get to see her meniarap first before she was sent to the nursery..at least tade la nampak sgt nanti babysitter tu yg cakap “kak..afiqah dah bole meniarap la kak” rasa cam alaa ruginya tak dpt witness..huuu.

My assets pun dah tau kut aku ni nak anta anak p nursery dah. Susu dah tade. Huhu. Dah tinggal < 5% je kut bekalan susu dalam badan ni. Dia minum ke tak minum susu badan tetap rasa sama je breastku. So yeah..sudah bakal tamat riwayat la kut rasanya ni. Skang pun dia minum sekali sehari je susu badan and from my left side je. Right side tidak memberi kesan.

Takpe, I'm not disappointed. I've done my best. Dapat lepas tempoh pantang pun dah cukup bersyukur dah. Cuma sekarang kita harap anak kita sentiasa berada dalam keadaan sihat dan dilindungi dari segala perkara yg tidak diingini. Betul tak?

Pfft. Entry super short konon. So typical of me. Haha. Okla rasanya ni the last post kut before Raya.

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir Batin kepada semua pembaca blogku. Have a nice holiday with your loved ones!

Meniarap

I know that starting from 3 months onwards, babies will have the tendency to turn over a.k.a meniarap.

Since I delivered Afiqah, I didn’t really pay vigorous attention on her milestone because I know each baby is different and I don’t wanna let myself start comparing and stressing myself over my baby’s development over others. So I let time tell when my baby has progressed from one step to the other. The only reference I have is Babycenter’s subscription that comes to my e-mail every week to inform me on baby’s weekly development.

Tu pun sebagai syarat. Huhu.

Since Day 1,all mummies know that our babies progress from day to day. There’s never a dull day. Am I right? πŸ™‚ Everyday is a new day whereby each day our baby will show a new move, a new sign, a new look, a new tantrum, a new personality to us.

Tanggal 1 september 2010, hehe bukan 31 bulan 8 57 yee..my darling Afiqah bole meniarap. Tu pun one sided je. Only to her right side. She doesn’t show much interest in trying to roll over to her left at the moment. For me, that’s one good progress considering she’s only in her second week of 3 months. Dia masih tak bole roll over to her back la kan..of coz la kan..mengiring pun tak reti sgt, tup2 dia sdg berusaha keras kicking her legs, shifting her butt and tupp terlangkup sudahh. Pastu terus wat muka blur. Haha.

This morning, the babysitter said at the nursery she was practicing to roll over. Luckily I had told the babysitter in advance when I sent her to take some precaution coz u’ll never know when Afiqah might roll over without them knowing it.

I managed to capture these pictures last night..huhu. Skang ni pun dia tengah mengamuk coz I’m putting her on the rocker for a while since I’m blogging. Penat tangan Mummy sayang oit dok meniarap setiap saat bila datang mood galak dia tu. Tak sempat nak angkat tangan lepas pusingkan dia, dia dah meniarap balik. Haiyoo..ini baby 6kg++ can build muscles la to me huhu.

Alhamdulillah. Sayanggg diaa. Can’t wait for more momentous moments!

aiyak terkecik gambar plak dah haha..lantak la..

Keseorangan..

I have 1 1/2 hours left to feel this freedom..

I’ve slept for 2 hours, am still sleepy actually. It makes you realise how exhausted you’ve been all these months, pegi toilet tadi tengok mata lebam je and my face yg more than a year hasn’t been scrubbed or done any facial mmg dah rasa cam mak budak dah ni.

Nasib badan dah slim sket. Hah dasar syok sendiri.

I wanna sleep more..more means until hubby comes back from work but I can’t. The deal for these 2 days is half day only until 1pm.

Maka, gue melipat la baju dan mengadap laptop utk seketika waktu. Mende Β lain sangat malassss nak buat. I just wanna sleeeeeeeeep.

It makes me wonder too camne la aku nanti bila dah start keje lepas raya ni. Confirm tersengguk2 coz dah biasa lepas uruskan Afiqah, mesti operasi qada tido akan bermula utk segarkan diri. Nak kenangkan nasib drive selama 45min lagi ke ofis, +/- jam di Fed Highway lagi..teringat masa 3rd trimester. Mmg dasar mengantuk tak hingat coz dah bermula episod kurang tido, bermula episod sentiasa mengantuk di ofis, honestly speaking I have slept like a wink for 5 seconds every time I drive to work during that period. Mmg ngantuk. Kat ofis ni ada quiet room, mmg quiet sesanget and dark. You have 3 partitions with long rest chairs and kat dinding tu ada scenery painting to make you relax. Mmg ni la port aku bila ngantuk. Tp segan pun ada coz sampai bila nak bertapa kat situ kan. Kengkadang lari p surau, kengkadang depan pc tu je aku slamber lelapkan mata utk a few minutes sambil bersandar.

I think I’m so gonna be like that once I start work nanti. I think most working mummies who are reading this will be nodding their heads. Tengah angguk pale eh? heheh.

Apa sebenarnya yg aku dok bebel ni? Si Afiqah la..kitorang baru hantar dia gi nursery hari ni for her trial period. Today and tomorrow is half day. Next week from Monday-Wednesday is full day. Aku ni dok imagine routine aku la ni..huhu.

My husband msged me asking me “tak rindu Afiqah ke?”

My reply was “rindu mmg rindu tapi baru skang terasa badan ni sungguh exhausted after many months tak cukup rest. And now I just feel like I wanna sleep, sleep and sleep. Rindu mmg rindu but rest comes first”

I have to take a time off b4 the rollercoaster starts.

Buat masa ni tidak ada emosi lagi bila anak tiada di sini. Honestly speaking, rasa lega. Afiqah pun being very helpful tadi tidak membuat ibubapanya rasa sebak langsung coz bila diletaknya kat cot dia, dia dah wriggling around, menggedik sengsorang angkat tangan angkat kaki tersengeh2 excited atas katil baru, bilik baru yg ada scenery castle and fairy and what nots. Leka dia tengok dinding tu. Alhamdulillah (for now). Let’s just hope at 1pm nanti the babysitter tells some encouraging news.

Hmm..

Sudah kekeringan idea utk berblog..

Tatau nak mengomel apa dah..

Kepada mereka yg slalue singgah di sini..apa kata anda beri idea kepada saya utk melalut merepek apa di sini..

Changes in me with Premium Beautiful

I’ve been wearing PB for about 2 months now and I’m beginning to like the changes on my body. At first I was doubtful, doubtful with myself whether I can pull this off. Yela..corset. I feel so much like the ladies in Pride n Prejudice huhu..ooh Mr Darcyyy with the corset, girdle and what not. Basically in plain English I felt old fashion haha. And then the price..aiyayaaa. You can buy a designer handbag for that price *which reminds me I’ve yet to have the privilege to start going gaga over handbags*.

Fortunately, PB is not a typical corset that serves to make you have a better body shape, it also improves your health and well being.

As for me..

a) For the first month of wearing PB, especially the girdle I find it very, very hard to wear it. It took me about 15mins to wear it and it was such a struggle because my butt was sooooooo gelebeh I tell u. Mmg ler org kata bontot besar senang nak beranak, tp nak kecut balik? seksa! I honestly dunno how much waistline I gained throughout the pregnancy, dunno how much fat I had accumulated down there but I know it was damn hard to wear it.

tengok gambar nampak senang je but in real life puas aku tonggek bontot nak kasi girdle tu naik ke pinggang ahaha dah cam Donald Duck.

But now, alhamdulillah my butt has shrunk hehe. From 15mins a month ago to only 5mins to wear the girdle. Pegang bontot pun tak rasa gelebeh sgt dah, dah kecik hehe. Before this, when I tried wearing my size 27 Levi’s jeans I can only wear it up to my thighs, pastu stuck. Last weekend, I tried again..sudah bole naik ke atas youuu tp takleh kancing lagi. Ngeee hehe. My current waistline is 29″, 2 more inches to go before I can start wearing all my jeans and khakis back.

b) It took me only a couple of weeks to hook the corset to its minimum size. The corset just like our daily bra has 3 places to hook. When I started wearing it, I was at the furthest level huhu kembang betul badan ku, but after a couple of weeks I can manage to hook at the smallest hook, sangat gembira rasa bila u can see the changes from one hook to the other. The best part is when you wear your attire, you can hide your spare tyre(s). Notice the s? haha.

c) I’m still learning how to wear the bra on my own.

The thing is I’m so used to wearing my bra by clipping the hook first, pastu pusing the bra to the front. But with PB since I still have some fats around my upper body, xleh nak pusing duh bra tu haha. Sian betul aku ni. So, currently this job is for my husband. I’m still at the furthest hook. Tunggu la badan cam kerengga baru bleh hook ke yang paling minimum. Hehe.

even the picture shows u to wear the bra from the front not from the back..kuang, kuang, kuang

d) Ok to the health sector. Cewah sector tu. The most major changes I noticed after wearing PB is that my stretchmarks is starting to fade. It hasn’t vanished of coz, but it has started to fade. My stretchmarks are crimson in colour btw, now it has turned to light pink. Can’t wait for it to turn to skin colour. Patience my dear..patience.

e) Previously pre-pregnancy and during my pregnancy I had quite a lot of discharge down there. And the colours tak enak untuk dilihat huhu. Dalam kata org Melayu kita ni masalah keputihan la noo. Dulu slalue je kena tukar pantyliner. But now, after I finished my darah nifas, back to the usual routine I notice that the discharge seems to reduce, and the colour pun xde la seteruk dulu. Most of the days I don’t need to wear pantyliner at all coz there’s hardly any discharge. Kalo tak dulu slalue je rasa basah la melekit la kat bwh tu skang jarang2 sekali.

So far, so good. Alhamdulillah. I like the changes. I’m only pointing out the major changes, the mini2 ones of coz ada..I guess due to the FIR (infra red) from the PB it helps to circulate your blood and also it helps you to detoxify. My last period was 10 days u know..amik kau segala darah kotor dia kuarkan dari badanku..jenuh laa aku nak ganti puasa nanti haha.

I dunno about other brands e.g Spanx and what nots because I’ve never surveyed on it. Mmg since the last stages of my pregnancy, I already set my mind to purchase PB and I’m all smiles. No regrets at all..*especially when you’re allowed to pay installments haha*

Gila di Midvalley

Right after Afiqah’s 3rd month injection, we went straight to Midvalley. Dasar selfish gila mak bpk Afiqah ni la..mementang her paed said the probability of her getting a fever after the injection is very mild, terus kami without further thinking went to Midvalley to hunt for her car seat.

To Mothercare we went, there weren’t much car seats as expected but one car seat caught my eye. Luckily that particular car seat is for birth up till 18kg (equivalent to 4 years old) and it is on 20% sale, terus rembattt car seat ituu.

Why did the car seat caught my eyes?

because it’s pink!

Haha..I am soo destined to have a baby gurl eh coz I myself love pink. Dapat plak baby gurl..huu sungguh la tiada alasan utk TIDAK membeli kan? Dari RM499 discount 20% kira ok la tuu..it’s within my budget. Alhamdulillah.

Disebabkan lately ni kami ni sering berkunjung ke MC, Hubby said why not just grab the VIP Mothercare card even though the main criteria to have one is to spend RM800 within 3 months. The thing is, laki aku ni tingtong sket. A few mths back we spent RM500++, resit tu dia kata takyah simpan coz jarang pegi MC..barang pun mahal. Ok fine I ditched the resit. But the other day when we bought the carrier for RM119, dia ada hati mau kumpul lagi resit nak cecah RM800.

Juling bijik mata.

But surprise, surprise (rolls eyes jap)..we managed to achieve that figure ye.

Mengucap 10 kali masa nak swipe card tadi..aduh demi kamu wahai Afiqah, Mummymu dah banyakkk pokai nii huhu.

hasil rembatan termasuk free gifts diberi oleh MC setelah mencapai target

Terima kasih MC kerana memberi sampul raya, car sticker dan handbag clipper πŸ™‚

After that, we went to the Parenthood Expo dgn niat untuk singgah je dah alang2 ada kat situ. We had no idea about it pun huhu. Aih bad move, bad move. Seriously this time round, the Parenthood Expo is worth going both for parents to be and new parents. Banyak booth ada. To those yang nak rembat baju budak memurah, there’s a lot of booth selling it. To those who are preggy and in the stages of buying baby product, I saw Medela’s booth, Avent, Graco, My Dear, Combi memcm la..

I didn’t really go gaga this time round coz I was still in dazed after the big expenditure in MC. Ikutkan hati mau spend saja duit di Avent, Pa&Ma, Fisher Price..tapi apakan daya duit dah tade. Nak beli CD nursery rhymes utk dak ni pun tak sempat huhu

I only spent my money on Pureen’s booth and I bought items that is needed for her nursery. I bought baby bath, insect repellent, some towels and baby wipes. Any purchases above RM80 u’ll get a free recycle bag from them (yang tergantung tu) Afiqah punya is the red giraffe πŸ™‚

Lastly, look who was invited to give a talk during the Parenthood Expo..

kalo korang dapat identify who she is mmg tajam gila mata korang..

Hehe..it’s Amber Chia la πŸ˜‰

Sekian laporan untuk kali ini. No more shopping till after Raya..I hope. I’m really on the verge of cutting one of my credit cards in half so that I no longer buy stuff with it. Huuu ada berani ka? Dup dap dup dap. I think I need to have that keberanian. Potonggggggg and just pay my hutangsssssssss yg banyak itu.

Gulp.
