Review breastpump autumnz serene

Yea!ayden dah 2 bulan lebih dah. 74 hari to be exact. Which means mama dah start kerja balik dah. Boohoo. But actually not too bad this time around. Cause i had a really bad time during confinement, didnt enjoy it sgt and hence ok jelah nak pergi kerja. Part yang tak best adalah mcm rindu sket kat ayden. Tapi taklah teruk sgt. Ok je alhamdulillah. Tapi balik kena on time lah. No more stayback sampai malam. Hehe.

So start keje means start pumping waktu siang kaw2 la kan. So seminggu sebelum start kerja tu dok fikir yg tmpt luka caesar tu still sakit2 lagi, doktor pun kata jgn angkat berat2. Jadi terfikir la malas nak hangkut freestyle ke hulu ke hilir rumah - opis on daily basis. Means nak cuba kurangkan berat beg bila ulang alik dari rumah ke opis. So start la fikir nak beli satu pam baru yg bagus tapi murah (tak mampu nak beli freestyle dah) utk letak kat opis je. So that hari2 just transport back susu n ice jelah.

Search punya search apparently byk org kata spectra m3 n spectra 9 plus sgt bagus. So teruja gila dok survey2 n mcm best je m3. Tapi still takut tak masuk pulak dgn pump tu. Sbb masa aqeef dulu first time pakai pump spectra 3, every time pump sgt sakit!T-T still ingat lagi kesakitan tu. Made me stop breastfeeding all together kot. Nasib masa adam beli medela dah, baru ok. Alhamdulillah.

So due to that reason jadi takut nak beli before try. So off i went to pump on the go kat kelana jaya a few days before start kerja utk try spektra m3 ngan 9 plus. Excited nak beli spectra nih. Pastu sampai kat pump on the go tuh try2 spectra susu tak keluar pulak. Keluarlah tapi sikit jelah.Tapi takde lah sakit. Ok je. Pastu tak puas hati kenapa susu tak keluar, tanya adik tu pump mana yg menyerupai freestyle, dia pun kata autumnz serene. Pastu dia kasi try. First impression, actually tak suka rupa dia. Mcm mainan yg tak best. Tapi murah sket dari spectra m3 and murah byk dari spectra 9 plus.

Pastu try pump la kan. Ek eh byk pulak susu keluar memancut2. And sgt sesuai dgn diri sendiri. Tak sakit n dia ada 3 types of suction mode. 2 sama dgn freestyle plus additional one more mode. Menarik sgt.Haha. Adoi. So mula lah survey online dan2 tu nak tgk ada bad review tak, any downside of the pump yg tak best ke kan. Sekali takde plis. Apparently its a new pump and takde review pape pun. Adoi. Haha. Saya ni dahlah jenis tak suka beli brg takde review.

Tapi seriously autumnz ni best gila. Menepati lah kebanyakan kriteria saya. Murah (rm469 je!), pump yg sgt senyap (org kat ofis pun tak dgr bila mengepam n definitely senyap dari freestyle n m3 tu), ada 3 mode suction yg boleh kosongkan breast dgn efficient plus dia ringan gila and comel. Hehe. I still dont quite like the colour tapi ok jelah. Can accept. Masa beli tu mcm ragu2 jugak. Tapi sbb sesuai sgt dgn breast sendiri kan, tawakkal jelah beli. Huhu.

Tapi masa tgh cuba pump tu ada another lady tgk susu keluar byk bila saya pump dgn autumnz serene ni kan, dia pun try la jugak. Sekali tu dia kata sakit bila dia pakai. So maksudnya lain org lain perasaan utk setiap pump ya. Maksudnya before beli pump mmg better to try la kan. Mana yg sesuai dgn kita. For me autumnz serene ni adalah my soulmate pump lah. Gitu.. haha.

And lepas dah pakai 2 minggu bekerja, i love love love it so much! Mmg sgt senang kosongkan breast. Tiap kali mengepam pun dia sgt efficient n dpt keluarkan ebm yg sama byk setiap kali even bila tgh busy gila n stress gila kat office tu. Alhamdulillah..

But i still use freestyle kat rumah bila tandem nursing dgn ayden. Sbb pump serene ni tinggal kat office je. So all in all, its a good buy la, alhamdulillah. A pump worth trying, senang convert dari freestyle ke serene ni.

Pantang 3.0

Haha. Pantang the third time. No joke man. I have always dreaded being in pantang despite the appealing 2 months maternity leave. Every pantang comes with different challenges and the third one is the worst. Huhu, but alhamdulillah i have survived it and today is the 47th day post partum. Yea!!! Yesterday we went out to see my gynae dr siti in salam and yea, no more blood clots, uterus has gone back to its normal shape and place, and the dr has given us the green light to actually be together again. Eh. No no that one needs to wait until 100 days. Kahkah. She wanted to inject me with something to prevent pregnancy - epo something,  i cant remember the name. But since it will last only three months we figured better to wait until pantang 100 hari habis kan. :p

Aaah, so after our final check up (dr siti and kak seri was so happy to finally discharge us, no more appoinments!woohoo!love them, very motherly and kind, genuinely worried when i was not recovering well after the delivery) we went to setia city mall to have our celebratory lunch at tony romas. I said we cause syafik had also survived my notorious pantang. Ok he survived the not so fun and emotional me during pantang. Haha. Seriously kudos to him for enduring my pantang days. May Allah grant u jannah ya sayang. And back to the story, so we went to tony romas, i brought a good deal from groupon rm40 bucks for a set of meal that consist of ribs, roasted chicken, 2 side dishes, soup and drinks. A steal, right?and i added on the kicking shrimp and shared all of it. First time going out of tony romas without leftovers. Haha. Habis licin. And what i want to share here is, lepas makan shrimp luka caesar gatal2. Haha padan muka. Dah tau allergic udang tak sabar2 nak makan udang lepas pantang. So this serves as a reminder ok nordina. Jgn makan udang cpt sgt lepas pantang. Nasib baik kejap je gatal2, malam dah hilang dah. Pheww. And we went around setia city mall saja senaman. Hehe. And after that went to little whiz as they are moving out to a new shop and they had clearance sale. Since aqeef and adam are sleeping in their own room we got a baby monitoring to monitor them in case they wake up in the middle of the night kan. Ok lah. Dpt murah due to the clearance sale. Yea. And after that went to citta mall beli wondermilk! Ahaha. Byk betul mengidam lepas pantang. So ayden byk berjalan hari ni ya. And dia punya penat, malam tadi tido nyenyak alhamdulilllah. Yea. Ke sbb kekenyangan makan ribs jugak dgn mama. Hehe. Selalu makan lauk pantang je ikan singgang dgn sawi celur campur lobak putih kan. Hihi.

Ok habis cerita celebrate pantang. So back to pantang story. So i was admitted after the 10th day of pantang kan. And after being discharged dr siti asked me to come again 5 days after that to see how i was doing, so on the 17th day i went to see her again. I was feeling fine at the time with bearable pain but surprisingly she mentioned that i had a big blood clot in my uterus! Like very big, the size of a football!(ok i'm exagerrating kot, but its big la). Muka dia risau siap panggil kak seri utk check out the clots. Adoi. So she was so worried, wanted to give me some medicine to contract my uterus so that the blood clots can be forced to come out but worried that my csec wound will be affected. She wanted to scrape out the clot manually but it would be too painful for me. Huwaa. Of course i rejected la kan. And finally she said, "cuba tungku dulu. After one week kalau tak keluar jugak we'll see how". Ok cuak tak? After asking kak seri how to tungku and so on we went out of the hospital and i was so scared. Thats it about being in pantang i often feel so scared and paranoid, so emotional to the point of not thinking clearly. So not me. Benci. Thankfully hubby was calm and we stopped by at marissa shoppe on the way back  to get the tungku besi and herbal cover. And alhamdulillah for that, sgt bagus ok. Higly recommended. Senang nak panaskan and easy to be used. All for around rm60 je kot.

And so for one week, saya bertungku perut siang dan malam. Eh taklah. At least 2 times lepas mandi pagi and ptg for at least 30 minutes. Sedap bertungku ni sebenarnya. Angin semua keluar and blood clots pun keluar. And since i was desperate to expel the clots out, i googled A LOT on how to make blood clots come out faster. I tried to put minyak panas (syafik punya krim mustajab halia tu best. Panas gila) and pakai bengkung, pastu on the 20th day lepas pakai minyak panas and bengkung tu, start rengat2, and dari google diorang ckp utk hilangkan rengat minum kopi panas. So i did and start pukul tiga petang start sakit perut gila2 mcm nak beranak punya contraction. Mcm senggugut sakit gila! Berpeluh2 rasa nak pengsan sampai pukul 4 pagi. Mmg tak tidur malam, berpeluh2 tahan sakit. Nangis2 bagai. Oh man, my stomach hurts just writing about it. Serious sakit weh tak tipu. But alhamdulillah at 4am, 4 blood clots the size of my fist came out like a baby and alhamdulillah the pain just went away. Lepas darah beku keluar tu terus lega. Pheww.. i think the coffee yg trigger dia nak keluar kot. Sbb tu orang tua2 kata dlm pantang elok minum kopi panas kot kan. Sbb boleh elak darah beku and keluarkan saki baki darah beku kot. But in my case, darah beku tu sebab trauma kena henjut dgn adam T-T. Lepas beranak tak sepatutnya ada darah beku besar penumbuk sampai 4. Adoi.

Tapi lepas keluar darah beku, bleeding byk pulak, sekali dgn sakit perut belah kanan. sebelum tu sikit2 je bleeding. I remember it was syafik's birthday 21 days postpartum and he took leave to see dr siti again. Pheww. And alhamdulillah uterus is clear of blood clots but they found a cyst on my right ovary pulak. Thats what causing then pain on my right stomach. Adoi. A 5cm cyst and i was shocked again. But the dr siti gave daisy based supplement that was to be taken orally 3 times a day for a month and after a month she'll measure again whether or not the cyst needs to be surgically removed. She also said to not consume chicken T-T. Nangis la.

Of course being a paranoid pantang lady i googled and studied about cyst. (I remember typing "possibility of dying from cyst" haha.sekarang gelak la). And the main reasons of cysts are abnormal hormon change (its very common for pregnant woman to have cyst actually, i had one when i was pregnant with aqeef and it was removed during csec), obesity, pesticide, and so on. So thats why the dr asked me not to take chicken. Sbb ayam byk sgt hormon pelik pembesaran pantas sgt bagai kan. So i stopped taking chicken and strictly controlled my diet for a month( sblm tu main2 jugak. Makan ayam jugak sbb nak sumber protein kan) and alhamdulillah, the cyst shrunk to normal size after a month and i lost 17kg after 44 days of pantang. Yea! I gained 16kg during pregnancy and lost 17kg postpartum. See how chicken can affect your weight. Now to keep on losing or at least maintaining the weight. That is the challenge.

Anyhow alhamdulillah for everything. My point of this story is to remind me that there is rainbow after every storm inshaAllah. Though it was hard for me to picture the rainbow during the confinement (trust me, i was really messed up. So hormonal it made my head haywire like crazy couldnt even psyched myself to calm down and think properly), alhamdulillah it has ended. And the best part of going through a hard time is, everything else after that seems simple and manageable hehe. And even though i still have minor pains here and there (i have the common throbing post csec pain now and then - which i didnt get for  the first two operation. Every csec is different i guess) but its nothing compared to the pain when the blood clots came out. Huhu. So, i am thankful. Hehe.

I think thats about it kot. My 3rd pantang story. The last one, hopefully?muahahaha.

Welcoming Muhammad Ayden Dzakwan

Happy new year! New year with a new baby alhamdulillah. I have safely delivered a baby boy on the 13th of january and on the 7th day we named him muhammad ayden dzakwan bin mohd syafik azrir. 2.7kg and he was born 3 weeks earlier than his supposedly 2nd feb due date. But alhamdulillah all is well.

Now going through confinement and its my 13th day inshaAllah. On the 10th day of confinement, i went to the hospital for ayden's 1 week check up and my check up with dr siti the gynae. After coming back home, at 9pm i had severe bleeding, like 3 full pads within 15 minutes. And a few minutes later i felt severe stomach cramp. Oh man it was so painful that i cried and my mom told us to go to the hospital immediately. So hubby brought me to the hospital and along the way, i nearly fainted out of pain. It was that painful.

And i remember i kept saying to hubs while crying"ki, kalau apa2 jadi kat saya, tlg jaga anak2 ya.. " and hubby kept replying "sabar, kita nak sampai hospital dah" huhu intense sungguh. I can be so dramatic sometimes. Tapi mmg sakit gila ok, and rasa darah mengalir mcm paip. Reached the hospital drenched in blood and they immediately put me on drip and took my blood to prepare for blood transfusion. Begitu byknya darah. And when they took my blood pressure, it was spiking high and apparently that means that i was in a lot of pain and they instantly gave me painkillers. But i could still feel the pain and kept cringing and crying while hubby held my hand tightly.

And after they consulted my gynae, i had to be admitted for observation until my bleeding stops. So i had to stay for 2 nights and they gave me medicine to stop the bleeding,  antibiotics to cover any possible infection, some to contract my uterus and of course lots and lots of painkillers. And after scanning my stomach they found lots of blood clots which mean saya bentan. Haha tak tahu bentan in english tu apa. And it could be due to excessive movement in the hospital and possibly because as i was resting after coming back from the hospital adam sat on my stomach and henjut2 T-T. Possibly my uterus was shocked with the henjut2. Adoi.

So yesterday we were discharged. And oh ayden was admitted too due to jaundice on saturday jadi berkampung lah kami di hospital. But alhamdulillah his jaundice level went down very fast and he was discharged after only a night together with me after my second night in the hospital.

And after the incident i am traumatized about being bentan again. Sakit ok. Skrg sgt cautious bila adam dtg dekat, kaki tersadung pape, makan semua jaga and stokin mmg tak lekang kat kaki. Huhu dah kena baru nak beringat. Kalau tak, lepas keluar tandas lupa nak pakai stokin la. Huhu. Hopefully i will regain my strength back inshaAllah. Sbb kesian anak2 mak dia tak sihat kan.

Skrg marilah berpantang dgn baik ya. Please pray for me ya 😊 in the mean time, here are some photos of baby ayden for my keepsake. Kadang2 handphone rosak la hilang la, kena refer blog jugak. Baiklah siap2 post precious gambar dia kat sini. Hihi.

Of the coming new year & aqeef standard 1 expenses

Woh, its been soo long since i last wrote here and 2015 is coming to an end. Pheww time sure flies by really fast. Alhamdulillah i am now in my 36 weeks of pregnancy and due for csec for aqeef n adam's little brother on the 26th of january 2016. Hopefully everything goes well amin.. at the same time, i am finalizing my master's thesis to be submitted by the fourth of january to finally graduate inshaAllah.

And tomorrow's aqeef's 6th birthday. Yea! The day after tomorrow, we'll be sending him to his new primary school for his orientation day and on the 4th of jan he'll officially start his first year of primary school. I took leave starting today, the 29th to settle all his schooling matters and alhamdulillah managed to register him into sekolah agama in kota kemuning. Pheww so last minute but luckily still manage to score the last seat. Adoi. Thought it would be easy to enroll him in sekolah agama but apparently its not that easy ok. My mom went to 2 other schools but both were full and even though she begged them to allow aqeef to go there, they couldnt allow it cause its already over their students' limit, one class even had 44 students!😨😨 apparently there is no enough sekolah agama in selangor and the information system needs to be improved jugak kot. I actually googled online for list of sekolah agama in selangor but nada. Couldnt find any reliable site. Adoi.

Ok but then they told my mom to go to another school, nearer to our house and thankfully they still have a spot left when i went to ask them this morning. Rezeki aqeef. So i registered him then and there and they informed that the fees should be paid tomorrow. Ok. No problem there. Then i realized one more thing, still havent purchased aqeef's uniform for sekolah agama. Erkkk. Ok so off we went to get aqeef's uniform in plaza alam sentral. They have a canggih shop there situated at level 1 and its a one stop center for all kinds of school uniforms. And its relatively cheap too.

In november, aqeef had to go through his standard one's class placement exam and since we received the letter 2 days before the actual date, and the school required him to wear full uniform, we went to professor shop in shah alam mall to buy his first full set of uniforms. And it cost us rm100 for a set of primary school's pants and shirt.😱😱😱 mahal ok. After we went to canggih only we know that the price is ridiculous there. Haha. Nasib baik tak belasah beli 5 set skali. Kahkah.

So here is the total rough expenditure of putting aqeef into standard one. A reference for me , kot2 tahun depan GST dah jadi 20% ke. Boleh refer and meroyan. Haha. I dont know whether this is the normal range of expenses as this is our first time but it is definitely cheaper than putting him into kindergarten. Kahkah.

1. Full set of uniforms from professor - rm100
2. White shirts (sekolah kebangsaan) - rm 24.50 x 2 = rm49
3. Blue pants (sekolah kebangsaan) - rm 33.90 x 2 = rm67.8
4. Baju melayu (sekolah agama) - rm27.50 x 3 = rm82.5
5. White pants (sekolah agama) - rm 23.90 x 3 = rm82.5
6. Green sampin - rm19.90 x 2 = rm38.80
7. Singlets - rm8 x 3 = rm24
8. Full sports attire  - rm30 x 3 = rm90
9. School schoes, socks & belt = rm100
10. Primary school's books and fees = rm 210
11. Sekolah agama's books and fees = rm220

In total, we spent around rm1054.30. This is excluding aqeef's school bag sponsored by his mak long azira (thank u mak long!) and countless stationery, bottle water and colouring pencils.😒😒😒 adoi. Adalah additional rm300 easily kot. And oh label maker (rm100 ada offer kat popular) cause mama tak larat tulis nama kat buku. Nama panjang sgt nak oi. Haha

Thankfully nowadays all the text books are subsidized by the government means we get in on loan and needs to be returned by year end. We only need to buy buku rampaian and so on je for both sekolah agama and sekolah kebangsaan. Hmm. Dont know whether we went overboard with his expenditure, ke tak cukup kan. We'll know for sure when he starts schooling officially nanti kot. There is always the first time for everything kan. InshaAllah ok lah semua.

And yg kelakar, i took leave starting today cause i thought his orientation day is on the 30th but no no, i wrongly read the date and its actually on the 31st T-T. Takpelah, get to rest kejap sehari. Huhu.

Ok thats all so far. Til next time.

6 months in

Alhamdulillah i am 25 weeks with adam and aqeef's little baby brother inshaAllah. 😊😊 couldnt feel more blessed. Thank you ya Allah. Especially now that i have abang aqeef who is so caring in terms of my well being. When i am down with my morning sickness or backache, he'll be the one asking me whether i'm ok or not, massaging my head, my back, asking me whether i need anything and constantly reassuring me that i look pretty(even when i just throw my stomach out and had saliva across my face) and that he loves me so much. So blessed alhamdulillah.

Even though at his age, academically, he's not where i expect him to be, i am thankful that his heart and manners are way bigger if not beyond any of  the adults that i am surrounded these days. And adam's progressing well as well alhamdulillah. At 25 months, he is so active and loves to play. He's very friendly and its very easy for him to adapt with strangers unlike his abang aqeef. We can actually leave him with his atok and nanny and he will not even cry a little bit. The only thing is, he's still not talking properly. I am fine with it but his maktok kept hinting me to send him to see a speech therapist, seeing that his cousin zulaikha who is 6 months younger already can speak properly.  Bahahaha. To which i just laughed cause i believe that he'll speak when its time for him to speak. Afterall, zulaikha's mother didnt even speak until she was 5 and she turned out to be the genius in the family.

And my father's alzheimer has gotten worse which affects him physically, mentally and pschycologically as well. Cause at times he will forget how to walk, where he is and how to do even the simplest thing such as going to the toilet. Hmm, but his temper remains the same and its really affecting the family. With this condition i really feel that i need to love my children enough so that they can take care of us when we're old. Cause my father's the type of father who buys his children's love with money and demand attention with his anger and hence, now only a certain number of his children willingly takes care of him at his old age if not none. Its my mom who really takes good care of him and still he constantly direct his anger to my mom. Its so depressing.

I am taking care of my father because of my mom, to be honest. To take some of the burden off of her, sad to say. 😦😦 cause i cant take his means words, not then and not now. Especially when i'm full with all these pregnancy hormones now. Pfftt.. ok enough for today. But to quote one of my colleagues, zul " takkan takde langsung kebaikan abah kau yg menyumbang kepada perkembangan kau?ingatlah and berbaktilah selagi boleh". Insaf. And with that i am thankful for my father regardless what he's said or done cause i wont be who i am now without him. I wont be this strong authoritative woman with him, cause i got it from him. Hahaha.

Ok again i am thankful for everything, pray that everything will go smoothly for my father and the whole family, amin.

Thinking out loud

I think you should treat people the way you want people to treat you. It is not fair to treat people like shit and when people treat you like shit, you get angry and bitter as if you dont deserve to be treated that way.

I know, we need to treat people nicely regardless how they treat us yada yada yada. But hello, not everybody is an angel ok. I am so sick and tired of people who acts like everything they do is correct and that its ok for them to do shitty things to others but the moment that they are treated badly, oh man, all hell breaks loose. Blerhgh. Who do you think you are man? You are no king. Even if you are the king, u shouldnt behave like a shitty moron.

Urghhh. I am so pissed right now. Especially for people who likes to say whatever it is that they want to say. Well what i want to say to them is "f**k off man!". Please lah, whenever u want to say anything, filter your words lah, whether it is true, necessary and kind. If it doesnt fit to any one of the criterias, shut up then, will you?

cuti cuti bali 2015

Alhamdulillah, we went to bali last week from the 30th january until the 3rd of february to celebrate hubby's birthday on the 2nd and also to bring my parents on a fully sponsored trip (Untuk membalas jasa diorang la selama ni bawak kitorang jalan2, kononnya..last2 byk jugak mak spend utk the trip. haha). A lot of things happened during the trip, my dad's Alzheimer's got worse and he behaved a little bit worse than my youngest baby, Adam. Pheww. what a trip. but, alhamdulillah, we survived. haha.

Bali. Wow. That is exactly the word to explain the island. Subhanllah, super duper beautiful beyond words. Although it is filled with temples all around, but the temples are rather nice, beautiful and suits the beautiful scenery. Huhu. I will share the pictures later, once hubby has manage to extract photos from his camera. Ok, another sad story, i lost my handphone in the cab on the way back from klia2 to the house. T-T so, i lost most of my bali photos. Now i am trying to retrieve it from i cloud. Hopefully its still possible to do so. Huwaa.

And continuing the story, we travelled to bali by malindo. Reason being, my clever sister delayed the booking of our flight and we could not get good flight timing to travel by MAS. At the time, the cheapest was malindo. The flight was OK, tapi ada la sikit2 glitch yg tak menyenangkan hati macam, kerusi roda my parents, orang yg tukang tolak tu buat perangai diva, diorang bagi aqeef duduk seat yg isolated dari kitorang and so on. Hello, aqeef 5 tahun baru kot, ada ke diorang pegi letak dia duduk jauh dari kitorang. Hampeh punya airline. But alhamdulillah, aqeef ok je, abang2 betul tau.

And we arrived in bali and was picked up by our villa's supir. We stayed in Aswattha Villas, by Premier Hospitality Asia which i managed to buy via groupon and it was super cheap, considering the condition of the villa. Oh my, alhamdulillah, for RM2500, we got a villa for 5 days 4 nights with private pool, fully equipped kitchen (with microwave & stove), 3 spacious bedrooms and daily breakfast, served at the villa itself! Oh my! For the same cost, which is Rm600++ in Malaysia, we can only get a room with 2 king beds with small private pool at the Grand Lexis PD. Oh man, alhamdulillah for the villa, super duper great. Its situated in Canggu, near to Seminyak and Tanah Lot area. Cause we didnt want to stay in Kuta, scared of the Bali bombing even though it was soo long ago.

And on the first day that we arrive, kitorang lepak2 je kat villa and had a barbecue dinner served by the hotel for 200 ribu rupiah per person, which was roughly about 30 ringgit. And it was scrumptious and we slept through the night so peacefully. And on the second day, we started out tour around bali with the help of our pak supir booked from pak isme. u can goggle pak isme and he's all over the blogs, i dont think its even necessary for me to put his name here. Daily price per car is 400,000 rupiah which is roughly about RM120. Cheap, right? But of course, they will bring you to expensive shops where they can get lebih komisyen and i think they get their income that way kot. And on the first day, the supir asked my mom " Buk, anak2 ibuk n ibuk kerja apa ya?" and my honest mom shared everything and of course lepas tu bawak pergi makan nasi padang pun sorang rm50. huwaa. takpelah rezeki dia. haha.

On the first day, the supir brought us to silver factory where my sister memborong silver sampai more than RM1000. haha. maybe due to this jugak kot, the supir tgk, ek eh budak ni boleh shopping sampai berjuta2 rupiah in one place, (Based on his komisyen kot), lepas tu dia bawak pergi tmpt mahal2 je. Adoi. And after that we went to batik painting factory and of course shop where my mom pulak memborong. Lepas tu pergi kedai painting and cantik2 sgt painting diorang. Tapi takde maknanya pergi bali borong painting, so not me. Ok, the first 3 stops mmg saya tak membeli pape, so proud of myself. hehe. And then we went to Kintamani to see the famous volcano, Mount Batur. Gunung berapi hidup ok. On the way there we stopped to buy sim card for internet purpose. 40,000 rupiah (RM12) can get 1 GB simcard. Super cheap, kan? That's settled. And then, we stopped at Tegalalang to see padi bukit yg sgt cantik. Amik gambar sikit2 and jalan terus ke Kintamani. Kat Kintamani, kitorang pergi makan kat one of the restaurants overlooking the mount batur. Sgt cantik subhanallah. I think, for Bali, u need to go and experience the view yourself kot. Mmg lain view actual dgn dalam gambar. Go lah go. Ok, kat kintamani, lunch dia buffet, sorang 100,000 rupiah with 21,000 tax. Dalam RM36 la duit kite kot. OK sgt kot. Dapat view lagi. Cantik sgt lah. Urgh, tak syiok plak cerita takde gambar.

OK, from Kintamani, we headed down and stopped for kopi luwak. (Kopi datang dari tahi musang). haha. Ye kot. Geli tak geli, minum jugak, mmg ada musang tu kat situ. And shopped for people in the office yg pesan kopi luwak. And after that, since my mom and dad dah penat, semua balik villa solat zohor n asar. After that, my sis and hubby together with adam went out to factory outlet to shop! haha, my favourite activity. They have a lot of outlets focussing on beach stuff weh. Sama macam bandung tapi focussed kat barang beach la. Managed to score a couple of beach sandals and tshirts for the kids (Billabong, Quicksilver and so on). My sister of course, borong habis. Syioknya org tak kahwin lagi n takde anak, borong utk diri sendiri je. Dia actually sebelum pergi nak bawak RM300 je "Ala, pergi bali mana ada benda nak shopping". Haha. last2 dia yg memborong habis. Ceh. OK habis day 1.

On the second day, we started our day by heading to Tanjong Benoa. Beautiful beaches and a lot of water sport activities. Harga pun boleh tahan gak. Of course, our supir brought us to the most expensive shop. Ceh. Naik boat pergi pulau turtle 6 orang 1.8 juta rupiah which is around RM540. My mom dah siap nak bayar, and then nasib baik my sis pergi jalan2 kat kedai sebelah and found out that the same boat ride to pulau turtle tu cost RM120 je (400 ribu rupiah). Gila tak gila diorang charge kaw kaw. Nasib baik tak bayar lagi. Mengamuk je org tu, siap tak kasi lalu beach diorang bagai. Takpelah weh, asalkan kitorang tak kena bayar mahal. Huhu. And we went to turtle island, best gila! Dapat pegang turtle yg sgt byk, dari yg muda2 sampai la dah 96 tahun macam dato' kame tu. hehe. Tapi geli gak la. haha. Nantilah ada gambar nanti, akan share eh. Kat turtle island ni ada macam2 jenis haiwan jugak (ular la, parrot la, burung enggang la) and semua boleh amik gambar. Cool gila.

Lepas tanjong benoa, we had lunch kat kedai nasi padang sedap gila walaupun mahal. haha. nasib la labu. 500 ribu rupiah utk 6 dewasa n 2 budak. RM150 sekali makan, ok la kot kan. melantak tak ingat dunia sbb lapar. hehe. Kalau kat bali ni, nasi padang je lah yg halal insha Allah. yg lain semua ada babi guling la apa la. Adoi. And lepas makan, tumpang solat kat musolla nasi padang tu, kitorang pergi ke pandawa beach. Another beautiful beach. Nak masuk satu kepala 10 ribu rupiah. Tapi pak supir tu cakap ada 4 orang je dalam kereta so bayar 40 ribu rupiah je kot dalam Rm12. ok la. Beach sgt cantik as usual, tapi sgt panas la bali.. huhu. Terik.. And kat beach tu amik2 gambar and since semua org dah penat kitorang bertolak ke kuta utk shopping kat Krisna. Semua barang2 souvenior bali semua adalah, and cheap too. Alhamdulillah, that's settled. Afterwards, we headed straight to Uluwatu for Kecak dance. Subhanallah, sangat cantik weh, watching the sunset while watching the Kecak dance, marvellous. Actually ada byk dance lagi kat Bali, but my sisters yg dah pergi semua ckp, with the kids, its not advisable to go to the dance other than Kecak, cause unsur2 pemujaan dia melampau sgt. Actually Kecak tu pun puja2 jugak, tapi still ok for me kot, ada gelak2, lawak2 jugak. OK la. Sgt cantik.. subhanallah, tgk dance tu dgn sun set kat blkg. cantik gila. And supposedly lepas dance tu kena pergi Jimbaran for romantic dinner. Tapi semua org penat gila and request nak balik villa terus. So, baliklah.

OK, third day now. we went out with my mom, hubby and the kids, my sis and father stayed to enjoy the villa. First stop, Tanah Lot. The most beautiful part of Bali. It actually consists of lots of beautiful pura (temples) and satu temple ni actually duduk kat laut, kalau air surut, ada jalan utk ke temple tu, tapi kalau air pasang, jalan tu akan ditutupi air, and temple tu macam jadi island kat tgh laut. Sgt cantik subhanallah. Kuasa Allah sgt besar. And we had fun just watching the view and taking pictures here and there. And sempat amik gambar and siap print kat situ and it cost only RM6 je! haha. murah gile. From there, we went have lunch at Malioboro, at the town, macam ayam penyet lah, sgt sedap, and of course sgt mahal, makan 3 dewasa n 2 budak Rm150. ces. habis duit noks. And lepas tu since kitorang dah kat kuta, kitorang pun pergi la kuta beach and jalan2 ronda hard rock shopping2, haha. kat sini habis paling byk duit. syiok kot, rock shop diorang ada hard rock cafe and hard rock hotel. huhu. Cool. Lepas tu, kitorang pergi jimbaran for our romantic sunset dinner. And kat jimbaran tumpang solat kat restoran tu and had dinner for hubby's birthday. Sgt romantic walaupun ada anak2 berderet. Haha.

OK. Macam dah penat menaip. later2 sambung lagilah. Gigih menaip gak sbb takut lupa. ;p

Til next time, toodles.

Aqeef Danish Turns 5 & Going to School As 6 Years Old


Alhamdulillah, aqeef danish turned 5 last 30th december and we had a little makan2 session with all of our closest relatives and friends. I started planning to have this makan2 only a week earlier cause the office was kind to give us all 1 week break to celebrate the new year. Hehe. I was on leave for a week since 27th dec and went back to work on the 6th of january. Woohoo, so we planned to have this makan2 to celebrate aqeef and adam's birthday together (i felt so guilty as adam never had any birthday party, cause i was so caught up with work and study during his actual birthday, hence the combination of the birthday parties with aqeef).

And alhamdulillah, food was prepared by my mom, maid and mother in law, together with some ordered food i found from instagram and internet. Huhu. Most of it was very delicious but one or two dishes (the polkadot apam & cupcake) were not that nice. Hmm, never going to get it from that seller again. But i came across a superb food supplier @mysugarshack, order lasagna, brownies & tartlets and the food was soo good especially the brownies and tartlets. Aih kena order lagi ni, sgt sedap kot.huhu.

And during the week's break i managed to order banner for the party and ordered bouncy castle since aqeef has been requesting to have it for his birthday.  And i found one great supplier from instagram "@kidzbouncycastle" and their service was superb! They came soo early to setup the castle and when its time to pick up they came later than the mentioned time (with notice of course) and allowed the kids to play more.Double  thumbs up and highly recommended. And the banner for their birthday complete with the kids photos printed on canvas were done by @yncreative! Also superbly done, i ordered on sunday the the 28th of dec and on the 2nd i received the beautifully done banner, alhamdulillah for all the superb service.




















And of course, special extra thanks to mak ngah ana acip n adam for the decoration, mak ngah spent a lot jugak beli helium balloons and so on sbb dia cakap masa dia kecik tak pernah ada org celebrate birthday party dia. Hahahaha.

And that was that, and school started officially yesterday 14th january for aqeef's school but he has been going to fardhu ain and iqra' classes since monday the 12th. This year's school schedule hs been delayed due to the flood and hence the delayed first day of school for aqeef. So this year aqeef will go to school in the morning and in the afternoon he will go to his fardhu ain and iqra' reading class. Huhu and thankfully he's loving both of his schools :)






And everyday i will send him in the morning and maktok will pick him up and send him again to his fardhu ain class. We cut off his ipad usage and television time during weekdays, its about time kot kan? We will only allow it during the weekends and although at first he was reluctant to be separated from all those things (kept asking for the ipad), but now he's already ok and happy doing physical activity instead such as playing balls, nyorok2, lumba lari, karate maktok n atok. Eh. Haha.

So all in all, good progress for the first month of the year it seems, alhamdulillah.😁👍

Adam's First Cinema Experience & Aqeef's First in 2 Years

OK, title post takleh panjang lagi kah? hehe. So semalam adalah cuti umum untuk menyambut keputeraan Sultan Selangor tercinta. huhu. i love 11th December. Suka cuti. :) And kitorang satu family sibuk la plan berjalan2. Mula2 plan nak kemas bilik kami yg sepah2 sungguh sbb takde masa nak kemas, tapi maid nak bercuti pulak la hai. Tak delah nak kemas bilik kalau maid takde. Budak2 ni mmg tukang "kemas" sejati. Kang lagi sepah lagi ada.

Lantas, papa ajak servis kereta kat glenmarie and plan asal hantar kereta and suruh org honda tu hantar pergi subang parade, sbb diorang ada provide servis pergi dan balik subang parade sementara diorang servis kereta. Cool kan? Tapi kitorang pagi2 khamis dah tercongok pukul 8.30pagi kat honda tu, so papa dapat no 3 and diorang kata sekejap je servis ni, since da dtg awal kan, dalam sejam setengah je. Lantas, apakah kang dah sampai subang parade kejap je berjimba nak kena amik kete dah kan. So we decided to stay kat honda tu je.

And it turned out to be great sbb diorang ada play room yg best, seronok the boys main, mama pun excited sbb boleh relax and air conditioned sedap. Pastu ada tmpt tgk TV with massage chairs. Cool gile kot, seronok mama n papa the boys urut badan. hehe. Plus, the provide complimentary food. Nasi lemak kot. Nasi freaking lemak for free. haha, papa sedap makan. And roti gardenia pun byk juga diorang provide, yg butterscotch, vanilla, coklat bagai tu. Seronok la budak2 ni makan. And then, ada complementary hot drink, milo, nescafe, tea, green tea, what ever you want la. And cream cracker biscuits too! Sgt sedap cicah milo panas2.Hui, syiokla kat situ, semua ada. Patutlah papa suka pergi servis kereta. Ceh. Selama ni tak pernah ikut sbb ingatkan boring and susah nak handle budak2 kat situ, sekali mmg best gila. Haha, tahpapetah pergi tempat servis pun excited. Tapi mmg best la honda glenmarie. Dulu pergi honda kat Jalan 222 PJ tak best camni pun.

OK, so after service kereta, fikir2 nak pergi mana yg ada wayang sbb Aqeef bising dok nak tgk Baymax, so terus la pergi Sunway Pyramid, since dah pukul 10 lebey n  nak tgk early bird punya movie kan. Taknak lah pergi jauh2. Sampai Pyramid, ada movie pukul 11.15 and terus beli tiket, food n terus masuk. Alhamdulillah dapat seat tepi, beli 3 seat dapat 4 seat utk adam. huhu. Aqeef was so excited and we can't believe how well behaved he was. Good job abang Aqeef! :) Dia tengok cerita tu, duduk je diam2, tgk and gelak2, and dia cuma kena minta tlg mama or papa ambilkan air and hotdog sbb dalam tu gelap kan, dia tak nampak. Cool.



Adik adam on the other hand is not quite ready for a movie in the cinema lagi kot haha. Eh, sbnrnya ok je, compared to Aqeef's first cinema experience last time, most of the time kitorang kena bawak dia keluar. Tapi adam better sbb dia boleh disogok dgn nenen everytime dia merengek. Cuma dia too excited and skrg sibuk nak menjerit. Excited tgk Baymax keluar jerit, excited bila other kids jerit, dia jerit juga. haha. Nasib baik movie smlm byk budak2 jugak, tu yg ok je, suara dia tenggelam dgn suara budak2 lain. For the first hour, dia ok, tgk je movie, lepas tu dia ngantuk mula la nak nenen, nak gerak2 jalan, huhu. Bila bagi dia nenen dia stress sbb movie kuat sgt suara n dia takleh tido, tu dia nak jalan2, seb baik dia start struggle masa lagi 5 menit nak habis movie, papa just dukung dia diri kat bhgn atas sekali kat cinema tu and dia tido dah.

Tapi next time abang aqeef mmg boleh dibawa movie date dgn mama dgn papa lah, cool je dia. tak banyak movie and relax je. :) Lepas keluar movie terus ckp "Nak toy baymax boleh mama?" haha. Aqeef nak tgk penguins pulak lepas ni. OK la nak, cuti sekolah ni marilah kita berjimba. Huhu.The last time kitorang bawak aqeef tgk wayang was a disaster, dia muntah kat dalam wayang lepas makan popcorn. Masa tu tgk jack n jill kat MBO subang parade yg baru bukak, oh my, habis satu wayang bau muntah and kitorang kena keluar bersihkan aqeef dan tak pernah lagi tgk wayang kat subang since then. haha. malu.
 
 
Lepas wayang tu pergi makan and jalan2 sket around sunway pyramid and lepas tu pergi amik the maid kat alam sentral shah alam. Sementara tunggu the maid, the boys had their haircut kat basement area of alam sentral tu. Huhu, terkejut jugak papa agree nak kasi potong rambut adam. and so, here goes, adam danial's first haircut since majlis cukur jambul dia (Masa tu botak habis)...

 
Adam dengan rambut baru dia, :)
 
Mula2 abang aqeef potong, pastu abang aqeef muka cuak n takut jerit2, si adam ni boleh gelakkan abang dia. cheeky betul budak tu. Sekali time dia, mula2 dia gelak2 excited. Sekali rambut yg dah dipotong jatuh kena leher dia, dia geli n terus menjerit nangis dia. Kelakar sgt, pastu mestilah abang aqeef gelakkan dia. haha. kelakar sgt semalam. Ai budak2 ni, macam2 hal. Huhu. Selamatlah smlm tiga2 ketul dgn papa sekali potong rambut, semua rambut cam askar.
 
Itulah cerita smlm, adam's first cinema experience and hair cut jugak. Ada harapan nak jadi penakut gunting rambut cam abang aqeef jugak. Huhu. We had fun, and malam mama pengsan terus while the boys tgk malaysia lawan vietnam and won! woohoo. ok la, till the next entry, toodles..

Little angel

I was on medical leave for the past 2 days, been vomiting with loose stool and on off feverish feeling. The worse part is, aqeef also had the same symptom. So, i was tending to his needs throughout the 2 days as he was too weak to do anything. His vomiting was the worse as he needed to throw everything out every half an hour or so. Poor little aqeef.

So, yesterday night, as he was feeling better, alhamdulillah, he came to me as he had an extra nail protruding from one of his fingers.(lebihan kuku yang rasa tak selesa and nak cabut tu). 

Aqeef : Mama, boleh awak tolong saya tak, cabut kuku saya ni?

I was lying down totally focussing on his little brother who was walking around the house. Pffft that boy is a little disaster waiting to happen. He would stumbled into anything in the house now. Sikit sikit jatuh, sikit sikit jatuh. Huhu. So, as i was saying, i pull his extra nail and poof it was gone in 1 second. Then aqeef suddenly hugged me and said "awak baiklah mama, i love you sooo much.." And gave me a kiss on the cheek. T-T.

The way i felt back then was undescribable. Awww. That kind of love and compliment is soo pure and honest, i felt like crying. Even now, i am shedding tears just thinking about it.

Ya Allah, please take good care of my children, give them all the happiness in the world and guidance (including a mom who can love them without scolding at them 24/7 ;p).

Anyway, just putting this up so that i wont ever forget that feeling of contentment. Pheww, moments like this makes you want to have more children. Eh.

iphone 6 review

Hi all,

Latest update : i have the iphone 6 already. yea! a birthday present and i am loving it to bits. :) previously, prior to this iphone 6, i have been using samsung s4 and before s4, i have been using the iphone 4s and before that an iphone 3. So, it is safe to say that I am a fan of iphone.i have always loved iphone solely because of its sophistication. i do not know how to explain it but i feel that other phone is filmsy and at the low range in terms of reliability.

The only thing about previous iphones that i do not particularly like is the shape and size. When all of its competitors are striving to sell slim phones with bigger screen display, apple kept its boxy shape and small screen display. That was the main reason why I chose to change from iphone 4s to samsung s4 last year. I was actually curious and intrigued to use android based phone and the slim design and shape of the s4 made me jumped to the shop to purchase it last year's July.

And now after being used for one year and 3 months, the phone started to have major problems that i just could not ignore anymore. (Actually I could, but the iphone 6's too beauuutiful to not be purchased, haha). The s4's started to have symptoms such as when you change to full screen it will be upside down, when playing games, when we tilt the phone to left, it will turn right instead and vice versa. Furthermore, the cosmetic of the phones looked so worn out as if i have been using it for 10 years. boohoo to samsung for low level of cosmetic reliability. And to top it off, 2 weeks before iphone 6 was launched, the phone's camera decided to die on me. T-T. When i want to take pictures, it had to be done via apps such as instagram. That was too much of hassle, wasn't it? But still, i thought "meh, i can still live with this, why waste money to buy new phone when the phone still can be used for basic function such as calling people and whatsapping?".

OK, and then, another issue came up. My mom's birthday's coming up on the 21st of November and us sisters decided to get her the new iphone6 on the day that it was launched - 6th November - for fear that it will be sold out and won't be restocked again. So, there i was asking syafik to go get the iphone on the first day of launching at the new shopping complex - the main place in usj, as his office is just next door. So, being a good husband (I love you ki), he went and bought the phone for my mom. And, the night that he brought home the phone, i fell in love with the phone instantly. Mostly due to the phone's slim shape, but suffice to say, it is everything i ever wanted in an iphone! T-T. still, i kept my calm and convinced myself that there is no need for a new phone.

And then, we found out that the iphone 6 needs to be using nano simcard instead of the micro simcard, I need to go to maxis center to change my mom's sim card since her number is under my account. So off we go to maxis center on a saturday - 8th November - to change my mom's sim card to be used with the iphone 6. We went to the center in sunway pyramid and the center was swamped with people trying to secure the iphone6. boohoo. and then it happened - that feeling of wanting something so badly - i want that new iphone! haha. but i still kept my calm.

Went straight to the counter to change the sim card and the people at the counter asked me " Ms, do you want to upgrade to iphone 6?You can still keep your old plan (i have been paying rm100 for my phone + data plan since forever ), we will waive the rm600 advance payment and simcard change's fee,since you are a loyal customer with good payment history and you can get the phone for rm1.5k++ (cant remember)". And i fell apart. Since hubby's buying as my birthday present, i said yes! haha. why not, right?  Actually you can get the phone for much cheaper if you buy it with maxis' latest plan RM155++ monthly, but so far rm100 has been enough for me throughout the yeasr, i feel that another additional 50++ would be unnecessary and an additional burden to my monthly expenses. So, i got the iphone with my old plan and i am one happy wife. :)

Anyway, focusing back on the phone, I got the iphone 6 and not the iphone 6plus as i feel that the iphone6's size is just nice for me, nice grip feeling and the fit is just nice for my hands' size.if you like your screen bigger and dont mind using the phone with both hands especially during typing, by all means, it is better to opt for the iphone 6 plus as the picture's resolution is much higher than the normal iphone 6. but honestly, being an employee of sony specializing in high definition TV, i can say the the iphone 6's resolution is clear and sufficient for normal high definition youtube viewing. Other than that, the iphone 6 plus also has longer battery life and a better iphone with faster shutter speed or something. Other than that, everything is pretty much the same with the iphone 6. Based on that judgement, i opted for iphone 6 and still pretty much heads over heels with the phone. :) And oh, the battery life for the iphone 6 after using it for almost 2 weeks now, is marvellous! The battery can last 12 hours with heavy usage ! And by heavy i meant continous usage of safari, facebook, youtube, whatsapp & instagram. Teeheehee. that's all i do with my phone anyway. Awesome right? Previously, for samsung, i need to recharge my phone after 4 hours of the same activities ok. So, kudos to iphone for the longer battery life.

Once i got the phone and got to play around with it, i suddenly felt so relieved to be using an iphone again. i never realized how much i loved the sophistication feeling of an iphone. Albeit the fact that i will miss the free apps from android, i feel that everything about the iphone is at a slightly higher level than any samsung phones. Hmm, i do not know how to explain it further, but i bet any of the avid iphone user can understand that feeling, right? :)

So, what are you waiting for?Go get an iphone 6 now! :p

busy bee

Assalamualaikum.

Wah its been sooooo long since I've updated this blog. woohh, its been so busy, what else is new eh?
My masters class has started September and this semester I am taking 2 classes with final year project. Work is at its peak, pheww.. Saying I'm busy is an understatement. Had to balance work, class and the kids. Thankfully le hub is self managing himself. huhuhu. Not good, I know. T-T.

Apart from being swamped with work, last week Aqeef had to be admitted for an operation, and to top it off, I had vertigo attack mid week. pheww. Really a challenge. But even when I was down with vertigo I couldn't take my mind of work, study and everything. Had nightmare that I couldn't finish everything on time and my boss shot me and I died. tskkk.. Sakit pun tak senang. MC sehari pastu esoknya dah tak sanggup MC, kerja berlambak lambak.

Anyway, thankfully, despite of being super duper busy, my milk production is still OK. There is  occasional dropping of production, but somehow, managed to top it up again. Thankfully my frozen ebm is still OK, I still have around 200oz backup and since my mom bought the deep freezer, all the frozen milk can actually be stored up til 6 months. Hence, no worry there, hopefully it can help me until Adam is 2 years. 10 months to go insyaAllah. ehehe. but I still keep reminding myself, "if I can continue for another 3 months, I am more than grateful". Small steps remember?

And study point of view, now I am drafting my thesis for final year project and still in the middle of multiple assignments for current class. uwaa. but busy is good. I just have to bear with it. Major reduction of shopping mall visits, means my bonus and monthly salary is not being used. woohoo. one good point of having classes during the weekends. tsk tsk tsk. good point la sangat kan. Can you tell that I am still undecided whether I like being busy or not? huhu.

Anyhow, I am thankful sgt, nothing to complain other than this busy upcoming 2 months. But...all this can easily be done insha Allah, especially when I have a new belated birthday present.. woohoo...

 
Alhamdulillah, a new toy that can be played even when I am in the class.. haha. Til next time. Tata.

29 Ramadhan

Alhamdulillah, today is the 29th day of Ramadhan. Sad that Ramadhan is leaving us, but happy that I managed to go through it smoothly. Alhamdulillah, syukur banyak2 sgt.

Adam turned 11 months yesterday (26th of November) and he's going to be one in a month's time insyaAllah. Eeekkkk.. how time flies kan. Alhamdulillah he's still fully breastfed. Ramadhan has been nothing but a blessful month for our breastfeeding journey. Not an oz of his stock was used, in fact managed to top up and add on to his ebm stock. Syukur sgt alhamdulillah, Allah mudahkan. Sgt byk Allah tolong. Bila hari2 yg susu kurang tu - sehari dapat 15 oz je, balik rumah tgk2 adam minum pun 15oz je, ada lebih lagi 5oz utk esoknya. Syukur2. Memang banyak lah Allah tolong and mudahkan.

Anyhow, I'm going away for a short business trip on the 7th day of Syawal. Ok, another new experience of our breastfeeding journey. First time being away from each other since he was born. I am now still studying how to bring ebm back from abroad. Some say need to invest on a good cooler bag, some say, the normal cooler bag is sufficient but need a lot of dry ice and so on. Hopefully Allah will smoothen everything insha Allah.

And here's a picture of how mama celebrated Adam turning 11 months. Happy 11th month sayang, i love you, mama shall try my hardest to provide you the best, hopefully until you are 24 months. 13 months to go,:)
