Alysha and her food

Bubur nasi+carrot


Nak lagi

Sedap sungguh..sampai bolats mata

Dan lagi...

Sape lak panggil Princess tgh nak mamam nih

Sedap la ummi...esok buat lagi ye

Beginilah hasilnya selepas makan bubur...

Tak caya??? Lihatlah pipiku ini

Dah beberapa kali managed to cook food for dearie Alysha...setakat yang dah cuba : plain rice porridge, rice+potato, rice+carrot, rice+broccoli(tp sbb terleka, hangus buburku waaaaa)..mmg Alysha suka yg amat dgn homemade porridge no time, licin...I made her porridge plain taste without any salt (salt is not good for her young kidney)...however, lps 2 hari berturut2 dia makan bubur nasi+potato n bubur nasi+carrot, the next day dia sembelit teruk sangat sampai nangis2...siannya Alysha..then continue balik dgn nestle baby rice cereal+ebm, ok pulak poo poo dia..isk...

Chinese herbs

For the past 6 months, I've been struggling to ensure that my milk supply is enough for Alysha's consumption. I would love to keep lotsa ebm stocks like the others eg. limaunipis's stock as shown below

I am really inspired to make ebm stocks as many as the above. However, due to the fact that I only own a one door fridge, it is impossible for me to make lotsa ebm stocks at one time. Sekarang pon seminggu sekali mesti kene defrost freezer tuh, if not, dah macam rupa igloo dah. I missed my 3 door fridge kat semenyih.. :(

Last week, there were only about 4 cases of ebm stock left in the freezer and I freaked out just looking at the stock. What I did was to eat whatever food/drinks believed can help to boost milk production. Examples are dried longan, red dates, oat, dates, pil ASI, chinese herbs etc. Not forgotten that I increased my pumping session from 3 times to 4 times.

This is how the chinese herbs look like (before and after cooking) was really hard to explain to the chinese shop owner to buy this herbs...the result was marvellous indeed...

This is how the chinese herbs look like(consists of 7 different herbs) before boiling.

Being tagged for the first time...and by 2 friends at one time

deFuhhh...mende le bende2 tag nih...tak penahnya kene tag..tetiba kene tag oleh 2 org serentak norrita n limaunipis n on the same topics.

Rules:1. Link to the person that tagged you and posts the rules on your blog.
2. Share seven random and/or weird things about yourself.
3. Tag seven people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. are 7 random/weird facts about myself:
  • Sebelum kahwin(meaning dari kecik sampailah ke anak dara) I really don't like small kids..dunno why...maybe sbb the gap between me n my youngest sister is 10 years?or maybe sbb umo 13 thn dh masuk boarding skool?that I don't have much opportunity to 'socialize' with small kids?or maybe being the firstborn in the family, I don't have the nephews/nieces until my sister Helen got her 1st son(at this time, I pon dah kawin)...but then lps kahwin and having my own kids....looking at small kids/babies will really make my day...rasa tenang je....

  • Nescafe will bless me with migraine...pls take note : only Nescafe brand, tak taulah kenapa..maybe the ingredient kot..ajaibnya I'm now addicted to the 3-in-1 coffee named Power Root Per'l Coffee (I know this addiction is really really harmful to my breastfeeding journey but I just can't help it)...

  • I love cooking, gardening etc but I just hate SEWING...isk..tangan bangku sungguh kalau datang bab menjahit ni...really can't take it...nak jahit koyak pon bercinta rasanya...dahle nowadays, there are no more badges/name tags that you can just pin it to your school uniforms...semuanya kena dijahit kat baju....isk....nak tak nak, terpaksa la jugak...

  • I am an introvert kind of person...kalau org yg x kenal MESTI ckp I ni sombong at first sight..but bila kenal..huh....baru tau mana langit mana bumi (macam tak kena je perumpamaan ni ye)...and one thing is that I treasure friendship very very much....

  • I'm good in memorizing numbers...maybe related kot dgn my accounting field nih...dulu wktu sekolah, klu nk buat any transactions, I don't need to refer to my bankbook pon sbb dah hafal no akaun bank tuh...till now, I can still remember my friends' birthdates (birthdate anak/husband/parent/sibling sume mmg xyah cakap le)n lots more...yg peliknya, dari kecik mmg tak suka...tak suka...tak suka...maths...

  • Love to watch tv..cumanya, bila dah ada anak 4 ni,masa terhad sikitla...yg sempat tgk skrg : Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty, Bersamamu tv3 and a few more. Rancangan tv yg minat sgt wktu kecik2 dulu : Full house, Out of this world, Jam and the hologram,The Greatest American Hero (hehe...still boleh ingat the theme song) Isaura(spelling?) and many more.

  • Dapat breastfeed my 1st doter 2 minggu je(teramat2 cetek ilmu n x pro bf at this time), second and third children pon dpt bf kejap je sbb x tau boleh pam susu bila naik 4th one- alysha- alhamdulillah, masih mampu exclusively breastfeed tanpa mencampurkan formula milk even dah masuk keje 4 months ago...

Adam and his new achievement

Contestants were having breakfast-fried meehoon and curry puff- before competitions started...

Adam showing his bored face, getting ready to start his coloring contest.

Just started his work...

Still coloring...

His final piece of coloring art
Adam receiving his hamper n cert- reti baca ke tuh Adam?

Too glaring...pic taken by amateur photographer..need lotsa improvement

A very proud face !!!

Last Saturday, Seri Iskandar public library together with 'Agensi Anti-Dadah Kebangsaan' held Storytelling(for primary school students), Singing (open to all children) and Coloring (for preschoolers and kindergarten children) competitions. Kakak was forced to take part in the Storytelling as one activity in her 'Tunas Budaya Club' cocuriculum meanwhile we just enrolled Adam to join the coloring contest for the second time(he was so depressed when he was not among the winners when he joined this competition 2 months back).

This time, I gave him several tips on the art of coloring though I'm not an artistic person myself hehe...When the contest started, he showed a gloomy face as none of his kindy friends were around taking part this time, but I gave him some words of encouragement...half way through, he told me that he's so tired and wanted to go back home....I persuaded him just to complete the coloring and then he can rest...finally, he's the first to complete the coloring and handed his completed work to the jury...After completing his work, his smile was back on his face as he started to play around with his brother,Haiqal. When the result was announced, surprisingly, Adam won the second place in the coloring contest...and he was sooooo was Ummi hehe..

Kakak started her story..

She couldn't finish her story right after this...pity her

After crying(teary eyes and red nose) ...with her best friend,Nayli

Then, we moved to the Storytelling competition where kakak was so stressed and came to me saying she didn't want to join but was forced to do so. As this was a requirement in her Tunas Budaya Club, I just told her not to stress out, stay calm and just to finish off her part...don't think of anything else. Later on, her name was being called upon to start her story titled "The Lucky Jack"...she started off very well with good intonation, loud and clear voice, good gestures etc..however, at the middle of the story..she stopped and scratching her head, wiping her face and I could clearly see that her face has turned pale...oh no!...she must be having nervous breakdown...she stopped talking, looked at the juries and just shook her head and went down from the stage...

She then accompanied by her best friend,Nayli, hid between the book racks and cried..and cried...and cried...I went there to console her asking what's wrong and she just keep crying...I hugged her tightly to let her feel secured and after few minutes, her cries ended...then only she managed to expresses her feelings-saying that she saw that the juries' faces were so fierceful as if they're going to gobble her up..and there were naughty secondary school boys making funny noises that distracted her and she just lost her words at that point...I said 'It's's not easy to stood in front of have proven your will get better from time to time...even ummi is an adolescent. I still have the nervous breakdown, stage fright whatsoever...I told her that the first day I start my lecture, I was sweating all over...even my hands were shaking when I was pointing to the slides...but things get better when the confidence level increases from time to time'...then she's able to smile again.
p/s nape entry kali nih in english?emm saje je..nak brush up balik english writing/vocab/grammar yg dah lama terkubur x digunakan hehe
