Feeding On Bottles

27 November 2012
While I was in my confinement (pantang), it took me a while until it knocked me that I need to start to train her using bottles for feeding. It was at about the 3rd week or 4th week when I started, but due to kemalasan, they weren't frequent. It was also mainly because I got tired trying to feed baby Aisyah. She continuously refused being fed in bottles and cried and cried.

I was sorta taking advantage of having my husband feed her and deal with all the tantrums because there are tips on having somebody else, not the mother yang feed the baby. Because the baby would recognize his/her mummy's body smell and rasa pelik kenapa  guna cara yang dia tak familiar with. But his crazy working hours means he's always tired and not around. Jadi I wasn't disciplined enough to do it.

One month before I masuk keje semula, bells started ringing in my head. Panik gila. I had visions that I had to take some unpaid leaves (or worse, quit) sebab my baby couldn't feed EBM (expressed breast milk) on bottles therefore I have to be with her all the time. 

I turned to facebook to luahkan perasaan. My mak angkat back in my Sheffield days was one of those who responded. It was a very comforting and reassuring coment she  made. She said, "Teruskan (cuba bagi EBM), baby takkan biarkan diri kebuluran, when mum isn't there dia akan minum jugak"

It was a tough first week for Aisyah since I came back to work. But she has been OK since, and true enough to my mak angkat's word, my worry was shifted to maintaining EBM stock.

For those who worry about your baby not able to bottle feed, I say worry not. Please start bottle milk (EBM) very early and be persistent. InsyaAllah

Mines South Lake Cruise

15 November 2012
And so on a Deepavali public holiday, two of my siblings, my mum, baby Aisyah and I went to Mines Shopping Centre. It has been so long since I last went there, thought the place already dead, but it wasn't quite, really. Tujuan pergi was to utilize free vouchers for 4 adults for Mines water cruise which Hubby and I obtained upon signing up for Palace Vacation Club.

Before that, kami sibuk jugak nak beratur for free Starbucks drinks . Each person received two drinks, so you see there was a very long queue in front and behind us. There were the Red Bean + Green Tea Frappucino and Caramel + Tea Jelly Frappucino, but we couldn't finish the green tea one..tak sedap.

Anyway, off we went for the water cruise. My sister's friend called it "longkang cruise". It wasn't far from the truth. The ride we got was free but people queueing in front of me paid hundreds (like RM 100-200) for their families to hop on. The ticket costed RM 30+ per adult, I felt it was a ripoff.

Dato' Kadir Sheikh Fadzil's house

Cruising through the canal, or should I say, through shops' backdoors?

It wasn't worth going. But hey, at least it's free.

Claiming my Clinelle products

06 November 2012
So I finally managed to slip out of the office to claim my prize which I won about two weeks ago in a radio contest. Pergi awal just before 11am to avoid lunch rush and came back at 12.10 camtu. Of course being an honest employee, I covered the time taken for me to go out. I was working through lunch and after 5 pm. (Ala mananya pernah kami semua tak complete keje 8 jam sehari, terlebih2 ada lah..huh)

I was driving from KLCC to Tropicana City Mall, its head office. Agak jauh aa but thank god for the Sprint Highway, it took me only about 20 mins one way to reach the place. 

It was very quick, it took me less than 5 minutes to claim my prize.

Look what I was entitled to. 

  • Clinelle Ingenius Optimizer Daily Booster 
  • Clinelle Skin Smoothing Scrub
  • Clinelle SnoWhite Mask
  • Clinelle Hydra Firm Night Cream
Initially on the day, I call sebab nak dapat Clarins product, which was offered earlier than Clinelle, but on the same day. But I wasn't the 8th caller through, so I tried for Clinelle. Tiba2 rezeki dapat pulak..alhamdulillah.

I am not a skincare regime kinda person but I know I should somehow start. Minat jugak dengan Optimizer Daily Booster since it's meant for aging skin..haha. I guess I don;t have the boost coz my skin has been so perfect and smooth (err..perasan). Anyway, hope this is the boost I need. 

Thank you Capital FM.

Renovation Expo and Mother Baby Kids Expo, Nov 2012 @ PWTC - verdict: Disapponting

03 November 2012
Just came back from there this evening. If you are contemplating to go there, I suggest you skip this one. Since there were two themes for the expo, lagi satu ada Mother, Baby and Kids Expo (MBK) from the same organizer, Hubby and I were expecting throngs of people. But it wasn't for the Renovation Expo, ni mesti sebab ada Homedec Part 1 and Part 2 just finished last week, so I guess the timing was really bad. 

The Renovation Expo was the bigger scale out of the two. Tapi sadly memang noticeably tak ramai orang. Expect a lot of vendors selling water filters and kuali, bukannya renovation per se pun. As for the Mother Baby Kids Expo, it was much smaller scale, tapi yang tu ramai orang, but still tak ramai macam kat Midvalley dulu (some motherhood expo or somethin)..since the last time any such event was in August kot kalau tak silap. 

And since the place was small, it was congested. Don't bring your pushchair if you have a baby carrier. You can circle the whole area in less than an hour and we were like, "Is that all?". Tempat untuk baby expo ni tak strategic - you gonna have to traverse through the whole Renovation Expo, seberang the sungai and naik tingkat atas untuk sampai baby expo. Untuk ibu mengandung, kesian tau.

I couldn't find what I wanted kat MBK expo. Kalau ada pun, harga dia tak la murah sangat pun compared to previous expo, so I ended up not buying what I targetted. I bought Aisyah's pyjama for RM 18.00 and Hubby bought a cap (RM 12 or somethin...)

All in all, it was a waste of my precious weekend with Hubby where it could be channelled elsewhere. We spent the rest of day got lost in traffic and trapped in traffic jam for 3 hours. It was a mix of a lot of traffic lights, sesat and accident at Jalan Tun Razak. Not a good day. I keep in mind that will not go for this organizer punya expo next time. That's how bad it made me feel. Haha.

Again, if you are contemplating to go, I suggest you go for a picnic instead.
