What’s In My Bag..

I went to Putrajaya this morning but when I reached there, I got lost because I didn’t see the sign boards, it was raining heavily and my vision while driving was very poor. Suddenly I was near PICC (Hahaha.. nope, I wasn’t supposed to go there!) Called up hubs for help.. then he asked me to switch on my Waze.. I was like.. duhhh.. why didn’t I think of that earlier :D

Anyway, when I reached the place that I wanted to go, it was still raining.. I needed an umbrella. Unfortunately, I left mine at home.. (why oh why..) the only umbrella that I have in my car way B’s Pororo umbrella. Hahaha.. I can’t go to government office in Pororo umbrella right? ;) So, there I was, stucked in my car while waiting for the rain to stop…

I was bored..

So, I did this video… I wanted to try this new app.. Hyperlapse where I can speed up the video faster..

Check this out.. Its called.. “what’s in my bag..”

I use Gin&Jacqie handbag organiser to make sure my bag doesn’t look or feel like a black hole. I’m a freak when it comes to organising stuff. Haha.. You can get yours here.

I have to have my note book. I have all this note taking apps what not on my phone but sometimes I just want to be traditional. Writing down ideas / my to-do / to-buy list is still the best. I got that note book from MPH. It comes with a very good advice from the bad girl next door.. Marilyn Monroe. She said.. “It’s better to be ridiculous than to be boring” ;D

Then, my card holder where I keep whatever cards I have, like membership cards, or discount cards.. And the pen.. Of course no point having a notebook without a pen.. and lipstick. My favourite lipstick brand is NARS. I have moved on from all these Israelis supporting products. I just don’t have the heart to buy anything that supports them. Even my trustworthy SKII. Yes, I am that fanatic. Geezzzz..

Moving on to sunglasses. Must have but rarely wears it. Haha.. and my Macbook compact mirror!! ;) Hubsy saw that one online and he ordered one for me!! So thoughtful ;) Haha.. And of course, my green reusable foldable groceries bag. Just in case if I need to go for emergency groceries shopping, I can help safe the world by not using plastic bag!! Yup, keep the world green for our children!! Haha..

On the inside, facial tissue, purse and iPad Mini.. I keep many books in my iPad Mini. Easy to read and carry around..

So, there you go.. What’s In My Bag..

What’s in yours??

NoteShelf

I don’t know about you but I always lost my notes. Especially when it is in a paper form. My notes will just magically disappear.. Haih..

But recently I found a solution! Write my notes in the iPad!! Yes, my own (ugly) handwriting where sometimes I can’t even read it myself..! I found this app in Apple Store called NoteShelf. I feel like it’s very useful for students to take notes during lectures / self-study.. You can draw, use the keypad to type or in my case, I like to write it down myself..

Please excuse the handwriting, I’m a doctor, it’s legal for me to have my own ‘font’ Haha.. And the drawing.. OMG! I’m definitely a left-brain person!

You can have as many notebook as you like and save it in this app. Or even send your notes to Evernote. (Don’t even get me started on Evernote, that is my favourite keep-all app ever!!)

I just thought this would be useful for students out there.. Give it a try!! ;)

Breast Milk Storage

All this while, I’ve been keeping my milk stock in this pre-sterelized milk bag like this!!

Really not-so-clever and not space savvy at all!!

Silly me!

Recently I have discovered a new (for-me, at least!!) way of storing my stock..

Flat on the surface.. soooo much better, I safe a lot of space in my fridge!

See!!

This fridge is like a drawer (tilt your head to your left for better view :p)

It looks more like a filing drawer in the office, arranged according to date!

Love, X

Update:: Click here if you wanna know on how long you can keep your breast milk

Overcoming My Forgetfulness

Breastfeeding sometimes can be confusing.. not in a complicated way.. but in a very simple way that makes you (in this case.. me!) feel silly!!! Sometimes I forget which breast I feed her with previously.. For those who is still new with breastfeeding.. yes, you have to alternate breast every feeding. This is to keep the milk coming.. Another little tiny things that I frequently (dulu lar) forget is when was the last feed, how long was it.. It is little things that becomes annoying when you forget.. Don’t blame me.. I’m only human :)

Initially, I had a piece of paper on my bedside table just for me to jot something down.. but another problem occurred.. I lost the paper :D

Until one fine day, while feeding Baby B and browsing iphone App Store (Yes, I love to shop even at Apple’s Apps Store) I found this app!! This is the answer to  my problems!!

Baby Log!! I tried the free version first and I love it.. It has everything that a occasionally-forgetful mommy like me needs! ;) Beside, it is in my phone..  not that I will never lost my phone (yes, I did twice) but at least the chance of me losing my phone a lot lesser that a piece of paper.. I can key in all B’s data from feeding, diaper change, sleep, play, bath, poo poo and more! The screen that you see below is an overview of B’s activity today..

In detail, when you enter the feeding page, you can add the side of the boobies (ni lar yg I slalu lupa!) time, duration. If your baby is on bottle milk, you can choose the type of milk like formula milk or breast milk, or juice etc..Even if you fed your baby both sides, you can enter the details here..

This is the page for diaper entry.. There’s also other basic entries as I mentioned above live sleep. play, bath etc..

Not just daily basis notes, you can also enter your baby’s measurement. These are the things that doctors measure during your child follow up during vaccination visits at the clinic. These numbers are quite difficult to understand unless you see it in a form of a graph. (Typical schematic doctor!!)Taddaaaa… This graph is also included in this Baby Log app!! Amazing isn’t it!! Now I don’t have to worry about forgetting B’s stuff anymore.. I just have to remember not to forget to key in the data!! ;)

Till then.. xoxo

Mommy Likes : b.box essential baby box

I just bought this awesome, colourful baby box to make my (or my husband’s) life easier when we go outing with Baby B.. It is a (bright and colourful) container that holds a changing mat, diapers and baby wipes inside it!! I was looking for something like this to avoid another episode of “diving” into my handbags looking for stuffs when I want to change B’s diaper. Everything I need is already inside the box. In fact, I can always slip in a sample size diaper rash cream too!! Its mainly for short outing like when we go to the malls or visiting relatives.. Well, I do have a baby bag to carry all B’s stuff if needed but sometimes mommy needs to look chic too!! ;)  This baby box is cool and practical, hence the name, Essential Baby Box by b.box!!

This is how the inside looks like.. the changing mat is folded and held with a holder. You can also slip in 2 or 3 diapers in it and also on the other side of the cover, there is an opener for your baby wipes.. This box has 2 wipes opener sides.. from the inside or the outside. Not that I have found any wipes brand that have double-sided opener but at least with this box you can either choose to access from inside or outside..

Yes, I am an organizer-freak person! Not 100% freak.. but maybe 83% ;) I love everything that’s organized and well-arranged. Owh.. another good news, this Essential Baby Box is BPA, PVC and Phthalate free and made of durable and washable materials like polypropylene. In a simple  words, it is free of the harmful chemical to our baby and easily clean..

It comes in 5 different colours.. all are eye-catching! But when I saw this one in lime green.. I’m sold!!

My Verdict: Love it!
