Standing (L-R): Dr Ruzaimi (my sister’s husband), my father, Dr Arif ~newly graduated ;), my mother holding sleepy Tasha, Dr Hamizah (my baby sister at 6 month pregnant)

We are back!! Arrived KL yesterday afternoon..
Our Dublin trip was good. We attended my brother’s graduation from Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland. It’s like a get together for my family coz all my siblings were there. Nowadays it is so difficult to get all of us to sit together because we live far apart from each other. Unfortunately my husband couldn’t make it because of prior work engagement. He had events in KL, Penang and flew to Riyadh for meetings. We missed him dearly.. Hmm.. ok, maybe mommy yang over 😀
Proud parents 🙂
We didn’t do much there. Eat, sleep, shopping..
feed the swans and ducks..
feed the birds..
and the zoo!! Dublin zoo!!
and we did what Dubliners do when there’s the sun…
Picnic!! (except that our spot is under the tree, away from the sun!! :D)
We took Emirates fight to Dublin via Dubai. It took about six and a half hour to Dubai, two hour transit and another seven and a half hour flight from Dubai to Dublin. Not that bad because at least we had a break between flights. Not too boring for the Bella, at least she can run around for awhile. Even during the flight, she kept wanting to walk around the cabin and see other people.. Haduih..
My preparation for a long haul flight..
#1 Milk bottles filled with milk powder
#2 Extra milk powder ~ just in case if the one you’ve pre-prepared finished (#1)
#3 Hot boiled water in a thermos, or just thermos will do. The cabin crew definitely will have boiled water at the prep area, but I love to have my own, just in case..
#4 Plain water ~ again, I need some on my own, or you can just ask from your cabin crew
#5 Diapers, changing mat, wet wipes, extra clothing for both girls..
#6 Ipad/iphone downloaded with lots and lots of videos / flash cards / cartoons.. Hmmmm.. Maybe I’ll have an entry about what I have in my ipad for Bella.. insyaAllah..
#7 Mommy stuff : Lip balm, moisturiser, lippie and things that makes me feel pretty 🙂
What do I use to carry all this.. My trusted Storksak Sofia. I really love that bag to bits. Worth every single cents.. You can get yours here..
I’m glad Bella is not the type that has to have her favorite blanket or bantal busuk.. any selimut or bantal will do for her. Otherwise, I’m sure I have to bring that along too!! Haha..
I just finished with unpacking and the laundry and now back to packing again..
We are going to the City of Love tomorrow… Paris here we come!!
..and if you’re wondering.. Yes, Bella and Tasha are coming along…
Love is in the air…

Im on maternity leave plus breastfeeding leave. And yea you’re allowed and only if you boss approved.. Houseman tak buleh lar..

Reading your entry here helps me to prepare my own first big trip with my 8 mth old son. I have to bring him to Kuching for my work engagements because I’m still breastfeeding. Thanks for the tips on what to bring in the plane, even if mine is short.
Even a short trip needs good preparation tau!! Kalau anak dah melalak dlm airplane nanti.. Saper yg susah? 😉
oh my god! after this, dr will fly to Paris?? Oh god.. interesting! i want to join u too. hehe…
one thing i love most bout the oversea is the cleanliness. there are a lot of clean places! no rubbish everywhere.
love to see ur all family members were meet for each other 😀 a happy moment
Bella and Tasha are very lucky kids. sejak kecil, they travel to many places to the entire of the world with their beloved mommy and daddy. 😀
Hahahhh greatt! Baru balik dari Dublin then flight to Paris! Have fun Doc… ^^
Eerrrmmm…I just wanna to say Hi…that’s all:-)
OHh Eemm Gee.. Just wondering jamu urat ape yg doc minum.. After 6+7 hrs on board, unpack, and packing again.. I just cameback from Istanbul with 12hrs on board..pastu pengsan seminggu.. Xcampur jetlag yg tetibe telelap kt ofis kol 8pg.. Hahahaah.. Toloonngg.. Give me some tips camane nk cergas mcm u sis.. **inspired by ur entry, InshaAllah will have a trip to Baitulmaqdis someday**
Haha.. Memang penat.. Dlm flight pun bukannyer buleh tido kan!! Im not on any supplement. Yg tinggal cuma smangat.. and caffeine is good if taken moderately..
Hi dr helina..just wondering..before u travel u ada amik any vaccination for your kids x..coz ramai gak anak2 kawan yg balik travel ja demam..any advice..
I just follow the goverment recommendations.. added with pneumococcal and rotavirus. Make sure they get enough sleep and drink lots of water. Alhamdulillah.. Bella rarely get sick.. Maybe because she drinks breastmilk too.. it boost up her immune system..
Paris wat ape? Jenjalan dgn hubby?
My husband is giving a speech at Paris Air Show. Keje sehari je.. Hari2 lain enjoy!! . kitorg ni tumpang sekaki lar 😉
doc guna kamera ape ea? lawaaaa hihi nak ikotttt! one day one day *bukak buku belaja*
Sony NEX 5.. I dunno how to use canggih camera.. Haha..
yg penting stylo hihi btw,picture nak sprint tu sangat comelll
Doc halina, nak tanya doc guna stroller apa yea utk bella n tasya. Saya nak beli stroller yg senang 4 travel tapi xtau nak beli apa brand? Any recommendation doc? Oh stoller for NB up to 3or 4 yrs old
We use Maclaren Globetrotter for travelling. Sangat ringan. Tasha doesnt really in a stroller, so far only in a carrier when we travel. At home, we have Stokke..
wah,semua doktor ye..seronoknya..sejuk perut ibu mengandung. 🙂
Salam doc. Just to check w u. Pneumoccocal and rotavirus tu available ke kt gov hosp? Usually I saw it available di private hosp or clinic. Can you share where did u took it? Thank you. Have a safe journey.
Private clinic and hosp ada. Government hosp ada jugak yg ada but you have to buy them i.e HuKm..
happy 4 u…n ur family..:)

Hi Dr Harlina,
Hv a safe flight ! Ada 1 hr tu mak saya sembang dgn sy, isu tentang nenek yg terpaksa menjaga cucu nya..
Mak sy cakap, nnti kalau dah ada anak usahakan bagaimana nk membesarkan mereka, jgn terus nak bg emak jaga cucu, mak tu tak kisah nak jaga cucu tapi anak kena faham jgn ambil kesempatan terhadap mak ayah yg dah nak rehat selepas penat bekerja dan mengasuh anak… melainkan kes kes yg tdk dpt dielakkan dan ada permasalahan
Mak sy siap bg contoh, contohnya adlh dr, mak sy ckp tgk Dr Harlina, pergi mn pun dalam or luar negara masih bawak anak, tak tinggal anak dgn mak ayah dia even mak ayah Dr masih ada dan sihat… mak sy ckp ikut mcm Dr Harlina dan suami nya Dr Sheikh bagus usaha menjaga anak walau susah & senang…
Doakan saya mudahan mendapat pasangan yg baik, menjadi ibu yg baik & dikurnikan rezeki anak yg baik 🙂 Nice knowing u dr & ur family too… from Pahang wiv luv ❤
Just notice ur correct name is Dr Halina instead of Harlina…sorry doc ^_^ !!!
Dr Halina..your blog is more popular than any other government websites!!
