This is the smell that I chose. It is refreshing, bubbly, flirty and it makes me happy 😃

And I promise you it is not the smell of coffee although I would love to do that. Hahaha..

Top notes are more of fruity, citrusy smell. Middle notes are a little flowery.. Jasmine to be exact, thanks to Coco Chanel for that lesson and the base is cedar, a little musky I would say…

Why Desire?

It’s about desire for success, being independent and strong but yet feminine at the same time.

Why Inspire?

I guess you have to ask my husband at the Meet-and-Greet the Entrepreneur session soon. So, to all who is interested, please kindly visit this FB page for more info.

Have a nice day!

Homesick!

I’m currently in Penang attending the Annual Scientific Congress of the Malaysian Society of Anaesthesiologist. That’s a mouthful of everything..

This is my first time way for the longest time ever from my family. Usually it’s only one night at the hospital during oncall and I’ll be home the next morning.. But this time.. 5 days and 4 nights! That is 4 nights of having the bed to myself!! The thought of leaving the children behind makes me sad, but my husband told me it’s gonna be good. I’ll get to rest, have some me time. It’s like taking a break from chaotic routine at home. I don’t buy that! He is probably happy having the whole bed to himself!! Hahahaha…

I got ready late for the airport, thinking that missing the plane might be a good idea, at least I can get extra night at home reducing my stay in Penang only for 3 nights!! (Hahaha.. Smart, eh?) But my husband’s driving skill is annoyingly skillful. We made it on time for the flight. Urrghhh.. So I had to leave…

It’s funny how I cry every time S left for outstation (he didn’t of course!) and when it’s time for me to leave.. it was still me who is crying.. Totally a cry baby!!

First night upon arrival in Penang.. I was too tired to miss anyone, I just slept like a dead log.. The next day, I had too much fun with my colleagues from Selayang Hospital. We went to Gurney Drive and ate like nobody’s business. At night, again too tired to think about anything…

Day 3.. daytime, I was busy with lecturers and all. Another round of night out with my colleagues to Batu Feringghi but I’m starting to miss my girls.. and S of course. I feel like my nights are too quiet. No little voice screaming around me. No Tasha’s little feet kicking my face in the middle of the night.  No Bella to touch my ears.. yes, that’s her weird but funny habits. She likes to touch my ears before going to sleep. Only mommy ears. Not daddy’s! Hahaha.. I’m starting to miss them..

I don’t want to talk to them over the phone or even FaceTime with them.. just in case they started to cry and I really don’t want to get S into trouble of consolling them. Even worse, if I started to cry. Hahaha…

That’s the whole gang just wasting time by the beach at Batu Feringghi. Waiting for sunset and dinner..

Tomorrow is the last day of the conference. And my flight back home. Yay!! I can’t wait to hug those little minions!!

In the mean time, I have my friends with me, just to keep my sanity intact! (or probably insanity!!)

Check out the rock on my fingers!! Photo taken at Baxter booth, MSA Penang!

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!!😉

They Wanted Daddy..!

Hi all..

My life has been upside down for the past two weeks. I spent so much time at work, had to do some readings.. and less time for family. By that, I mean my girls.. I only sent them to school in the morning while they are still sleeping and come back from work late.. sometimes until 10pm. When I reached home, I still need to do some reading and all.. I need to focus on my work and study right now.

My husband has always been supportive. He will pick up the girls from school, bathe them, feed them and all. MasyaAllah.. May Allah grant him Jannah for all his sacrifices.. No complaint. He loves the girls and loves spending time with them. They had so much fun together. They went out for dates.. Hahaha.. Yes, daddy and the girls at MooCow!

And where’s mommy?

At the hospital..

I was busy with my stuffs until two nights ago, I wanted to put my girls to sleep.. and they refused me!! Both Bella and Tasha wanted daddy!

I cried in my heart.

It’s only two weeks and they forgot their mommy?

I guess we can’t have everything in life. One way or another, if you want to achieve something, part of your life will be sacrifice. Salute to all ambitious mommies out there, juggling work and family. I have a friend who completed her post-graduate study with kids and NO maid! That’s unbelievable!! Salute to all husbands and daddies who sacrifies for their family, taking care of their children while their wives is struggling to achieve their ambitions.

In my case, I just need to do some adjustment.. like less sleeping time (hahahah.. and more coffee probably..) and finish my study at hospital and spend more quality time with my girls (I need a date with them too!!)

That night, when Bella and Tasha rejected me was like a slap in my face. I can’t take it..

I need to change.

Wish me luck, ok!

Because People Live When You Give..

Are you free next weekend?😉

There’s going to be a blood donation drive going on at the eCurve.. well, obviously to collect more blood for our Blood Bank.

The reason I’m advertising for this is because..

I like blood..? Haha..

No, that’s not what I meant.. It’s just closely related to my work.

I’ve seen bad polytrauma cases that needed 25 pints blood and blood products transfusion, pregnant mother that bled 12 litres while giving birth, dengue haemorrhagic fever that needed blood transfusion, liver transplant will have 30 pints pack cells and more blood products standby for transfusion. We drink blood here in the hospital, people!!

Seriously, your blood will save peoples life. Who knows today you help others, another day, someone else will help you, insyaAllah..

Lets donate some..

because people live when you give..

Happy Mother’s Day!!

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day!!
A day to celebrate all mothers out there for everything they have done for us!!
Today I’m oncall in maternity theatre, seeing all these mothers in labour reminds me to write something to share with you..
Labour pain!!
It’s crazy painful ok!!
20 bones getting fractured at the same time!!
Can you imagine??! NO, right!!
Trust me! It will be even worse if you need labour augmentation like intravenous oxytocin. I had that before during my second delivery. MasyaAllah.. All I did was praying for forgiveness and mercy from Allah and istighfar… That was what kept me going (before I asked the nurse to give me pethidine 10mg stat when the os opening was 8cm!! Haha..) Crazy, crazy, crazy intense pain.. I don’t even have a word to describe the pain.. Pain killers will only make me drowsy and it doesn’t really make the pain disappear. I woke up again every time the contraction started and that is 4 times in 10 minutes lasted for 30-40secs and all I can do is just pray for mercy from Allah…
The reason I’m writing this to all of you is because I wanna share with you the importance of learning what to expect during labour. I personally have met a few mothers that actually told me that they didn’t expect the pain was gonna be that bad!! My eyeballs almost popped out (literally speaking..) when I heard that statement.. Where did all these people came from? Masyaallah…
It’s important especially for new couples to attend antenatal classes during pregnancy. Learn how labour progress and how to at least ease the pain through breathing method.. Seriously, mommies!!
OK, I have a confession, I didn’t go to any antenatal classes because I kinda know what to expect during labour. I can still remember all these things that I learned during my housemanship in ObGyn. Until now, on and off when I see my pain in labour room before giving epidural, I still teach them the breathing method. So, I don’t really see the point of going to the antenatal classes.. Haha.. Until I was in labour myself..
I forgot to breathe!!
Yes, when it comes to my turn in labour, I forgot how to do it!! Hahaha.. Lucky my husband remembered!! He thought me how to breath in synchrony with my contractions!! (I secretly think he googled that on YouTube!! :D) Haha..
So, my point here is, every mommy should gain a little knowledge on what to expect in labour. You may not remember it all but at least the labour process doesn’t come to you as a surprise. And don’t forget to bring your partner who will be with you during labour, insyaAllah.. be it your husband, or your mother or your best friend.. Because if you can’t remember a thing, he/she better be!! Haha..
The beauty of giving birth is.. the pain just disappeared after you see your baby for the first time. When your baby look at you, when you hold your baby in your arms. You forgot about the pain.. totally! I’m not making it up.. Seriously. I don’t believe that before until I felt it myself. Subhanallah..
May Allah blessed all mommies out there for all their sacrifices, sweat, blood and tears going through labour pain..
Thank you, maaa.. I love you so much!!
Happy mother’s day to my dear maa, my mother-in-law.. and all mommies out there..
