About Me

Barely Supermommy is about my life as a daughter, doctor, wife and most recent… mother. My name is Halina, a 30-something doctor, married to a wonderful, gentle-hearted, superbusy man, and blessed with two angels. Sophea Isabella & Sophea Natasha. This is me, coping with mommyhood, at the same time struggling to maintain my life, friendship and sanity!!

bare·ly  /ˈbe(ə)rlē/ (adverb)

Only just; almost not: “she nodded, barely able to speak”; “a barely perceptible pause”.

Only a short time before: “they had barely sat down when forty policemen swarmed in”

su·per·mommy \ˈsü-pər-ˌmämmi\ (noun)
an exemplary mother; also : a woman who performs the traditional duties of housekeeping and child-rearing while also having a full-time job

  30. Hi and salaam :)

    Saya kadang2 skip post dr,bila perasan cerita pasal history bertudung it touches me a lot.Dan bila dr minta berbuat baik again and again it touhes me.Sebab begitulah paradigm yang terpaksa dihadapi oleh non hijabist bila nak revert kepada hijabist.Its a long way,dr but hamdulillah u r the chosen among the chosen.

    Saya selalu rasa dr adalah typical me.Nak happy family,nak cita2 jadi realiti,nak banggakan family and the list goes on,tapi yang outstandingnya dr adalah pengabdian dan penghijrahan dr mengubah landskap kehidupan orang lain juga.

    Dah 3 tahun tak balik Malayisa,teringin nak bekerja satu department dengan dr tapi saya minat sangat ortho,inshaaAllah dr akan sehebat Dr Harlina Siraj mungkin lebih hebat lagi.

    Way to go,aja!

  38. Salam dr,
    Im a Malaysian med student from egypt and planning to hve a speciality in anaesthesiology. But Im confused on what path shoul I take. Could you share with me about you and you husband’s experience on becoming a specialist?
    Looking forward to your help dr! Thanks. :)

  39. Salam Doc,
    Congrats on such beautiful and charming girls! It’s such a pleasure to follow you and your fashion /make up craze ;)

    Doc,
    Am writing to you now as I believe you can help make a difference in someone’s life.

    I know of this Lady who is considered living in kg, though near Shah Alam.

    I suspected and apparently earlier biopsy indicated that she has breast cancer.

    Given that she has no access to wifi, internet, much less computer, there is limited info that she has. That contributed to her fear of going to hospital, after listening to well meaning people who are unfortunately facing similar constraints.

    This lady used to provide massage services from house to house to support the family, and helped her husband.

    We were introduced a few years back and I found her to be very honest and someone with good heart and soul.

    I visited her last nite upon knowing her condition, she is overwhelmed by negative stories, tried to encourage her to go to hospital immediately as her breast has started bleeding.

    Doc, this morning I thought of u, she looks up to u n Dato.

    Would u be so kind to talk to her over the phone or if u want , I can also take u to visit her, to encourage her to go to hospital, and feed her with proper info? I tried, but since I am neither a doc nor have an experience in this, it didnt sound credible to her hahahah.

    She has young children, very independent lady but now facing difficulty to even move.

    What seems natural for us, is not so apparent to her and many others who do not have access to technology as easy as most of us do.

    Would appreciate your kind reply and whether you can help out.

    My hp is 019 385 3989

    Tq Doc, May you be in baraqah, always
