I have received many questions regarding all my scarves and shawls that I wore.. Where did I got it..
I always bought my tudung stuffs from the same shop. Somehow I always buy from them because they have good quality tudung, shawls and inner tudung with awning with good reasonable price.
This is not a sponsored post. I sincerely like stuffs from this online boutique and whenever I have time, I’ll drop by at their place in Shah Alam.
Today I received my order from them.. all colours for inner tudung with awning.. Hahaha.. And that is about 24 of it!! :D
Have fun shopping!!
Yes, that is true!!
Keep on moving!!
That’s why today, when I got some me-time in the washroom..
I showered, did some online shopping (I bought a handbag!!) and paid my bills from my iPad in the washroom!
Keep moving, people!!
Today I’m back behind the steering wheel!! Hehe..
It feels sooo liberating to be able to drive back my car.. Suddenly I missed traffic jams! :D
I really cannot follow the traditional pantang style. Cant go out for 40 days? How can a woman these days not go out for 40 days? What do you do at home?
I tried bengkung.. I walked like a geisha with that thing on. Of course it’s good because it helps to hold the shape of your body from the tummy down to your hips. But it is so hard for me to bend and pick up my baby!! Remember, I’m a mother of two now (yay!!) and I need to be able to function as a mother.. So, I lasted only for a day with my bengkung.. Haha..
I then substitute my bengkung with a bodyshaper… much much better, I can walk and do daily work like a normal human beings. So practical!
During pregnancy, hormones like the progestrogens and oestrogens did effect our musculoskeletal system, mainly our abdomen due to the uterus expansion and the abdominal wall muscles, its called diastasis recti. The hormones also soften the connective tissue. Expanded uterus cause the abdominal muscle to separate and that one contributes to our back pain, even during post delivery. Thats why wearing a post-partum girdle will help with this problem. We need to support our spine for it to go back into its original posture.
One more thing that a post-delivery mother always forget to do is the pelvic floor exercise also known as Kegel’s exercise. Why we need to do this? Again, it is due to the hormones cause the ligaments to stretch (otherwise, how can a baby pass through the birth canal??) and loosen the pelvic floor. This problem will effect as many as about 60-70% of mothers post delivery. You will notice that you suffer from incontinence when coughing, sneezing, or laughing after giving birth. So, how do you do pelvic floor exercise? Haha.. it’s your job to find out about it!!
Back to my pantang story, as for now, I still don’t carry heavy thing due to all this loosen ligaments, thanks to my husband who helps me a lot with Bella and all other heavy stuffs. I still keep my socks on. I’m still on this pantang diet..
OK, I took a sip of coke from my husband’s glass the other day ;) But I can’t follow the strict no excessive fluid intake. I need to produce milk!! How larr??
I drink a lot of Horlick and Milo.. and not forgetting the hot ginger drink..
I’m already missing my high heels.. Cant wait to hit the gym soon!! X
My little Bella has shown her interest in beautifying herself!! ;) We got this picture earlier on during our trip to Krabi/Phuket.
Somehow she managed to climb and reach the dressing table and play with my… urmmm… “first aid kit”!! ;)
She pretended like she was putting on the moisturizer, played with the compact powder and then she found my mascara tube. Trying to figure out what to do with this thing..
“I’ve seen mommy did this before.. maybe I should do this too…” Probably that’s what she said..
Me and my husband had a good laugh looking at her (Of course not in front of her!)
Daddy: She’s becoming like you!
Mommy: Yeah! Yeah! I trained her well!! -__-
I went for ultrasound scan for my second baby last week, and to my shock,he/she is underweight and looks small for his/her age. At 33 weeks, the parameters are only at par with a 29 week size baby!! Oh my God!! Have I been a bad mommy?? I know it’s not the end of the world but I guess there are few factors that I would like to share with all of you mommies out there..
Up until now, I’m still breastfeeding Lil B, not regularly but usually at night before she goes to sleep. The nutrition that should go to the new baby might have been taken by the breast milk… Well, I just can’t say “No” when Bella said she wanted “shushu”. She did it with the cutest face ever!!
Besides, I’m not eating very well during this pregnancy, that’s the different between this current and previous pregnancy. I just don’t have that much appetite like before. I just eat for the sake of eating.. Alhamdullilah there was no vomiting or feeling nauseous but my appetite is just so-so. Besides, taking care of a toddler and carrying a baby at the same time is really no joke. Work is as demanding as ever. We moved house, packing and unpacking.. A lot of crazy stuff is going on during this current pregnancy. There was just not enough time to lie down and put my feet up. Husband has been a great partner. He helped me in every way he can but I guess progestrogen really effects your body more as you get older.. It makes you tired and sleepy, it retains water, makes you forget things, stretches your ligaments (OMG!! Thats the worst!! Sometimes I feel like I left my pinggang on the chair when I tried to get up!! Hahahha… Husband comes handy around this time to pull you up without complaining I’m too heavy!! Haha..) My weight gain is good coz my body retains water easily (thanks to progestrogen!! I’m like a sponge retaining water!!) but baby’s weight gain is a little lagging..
My point is.. (not to blame anything here!) I missed taking my multivitamins!! *insert regret face here!*
Don’t get me wrong, I love this hectic life.. I just hate the progestrogen!! Hahah..
From now on, I have to force myself to eat and takes my multivits regularly..
To expecting mommies out there.. do NOT take things for granted. Take your nutritious food regularly, multivitamins. Just do it for your unborn child. No excuse!!’

I was out with my BFF yesterday after work (L-R : me, Dr Elly, Dr Rey) it has been awhile since we met up with each other.. work, family and more work delays our get together sessions. It was just a short session cause we only manage to meet up after finish work, around 5pm until maghrib prayer time before rushing home again..
Back at home, I knew there was no more frozen food for B but I just had to meet up with my girlfriends!! It so hard to catch all three available at the same time. So I decided to just let her daddy feed her with bottled food from Heinz! Hahahha… (Hey!! everyone screw up sometimes, right?) Daddy said ok coz he knew I haven’t been seeing my girlfriends for quite sometimes..
Poor daddy had to face all the drama.. Bella refused to take the bottled food. Penat daddy pujuk Bella ngangan mulut nak makan but she just refused!!
Hahahha.. I don’t know who to kesian.. daddy or Bella :D I reached home around 7pm, cooked for B her favourite meal and She’s a happy baby!! Hehehehe…
