So.... BF in motherhood term means breastfeed. And yes, I only knew that recently. Hehehehehehhe.
For those who doesn't know, let me do some enlightenment :D
You know how people are very health conscious nowadays. Going towards environmentally-friendly society. Recycling, energy saving bulbs, hybrid cars, Earth Hour, and so forth.
Even with baby products (again, i only knew this) there's a range of products which are chemical-free, toxic-free, made of natural resources. There's cloth diaper (CD) with is basically a technologically-advanced version of lampin-putih-yg-masam-zaman-kite-kecik2-dulu. This definitely reduces non-biodegradable waste of the normal disposable diapers.
The main point of this entry is on exclusive breastfeeding. Another step of my generation towards all-natural way of living. Most hospitals promotes exclusive BF for new moms. They even have guidebook on how to continue exclusive BF if mommies need to go back to work after maternity leave. This includes products on express milk storage.
Initiation of breastfeeding within the first hour of life
Exclusive breastfeeding – that is the infant only receives breastmilk without any additional food or drink, not even water
Breastfeeding on demand – that is as often as the child wants, day and night
No use of bottles, teats or pacifiers
One thing that many people doesn't know is that baby doesn't need anything else when breastfed except the mommies' milk, and when i said nothing else, that means NOTHING ELSE. Not even air suam. Yes, no water, people!
Perhation: Entri tiada kaitan dengan penulis ketika kecil.
I was stalking some cousins and second-cousins on facebook. Wasn't interested to add them as friends - I don't approve/add kids on fb. FYI, "kids" in this context means those without IC and still studying for UPSR. I'm keen to know what kids do on fb. They don't go anywhere without supervision - so they can't upload photos of where they go everyday. They don't drive. They can't watch cool movies cos they're minors.
That has got nothing to do with what caught me today.
I saw this one cousin's photos. She's a kid. She's 9 i think. And she has one album of which she puts on photos of her growing up. Its called "Gambar Semasa Kecil".
Like hellooooooooooooooooooooo!!! U are masih kecil!!

I was browsing for baby clothes and such online. Find them a lot cheaper. Scored myself a set of 5 Nike baby rompers for just rm30. And a set of 4 Carter's baby rompers and 6 pair of socks for rm44. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~!!
Super geram tgk all those cute dresses for girls T___T
Then I stumbled upon these cool socks for boys. And I though... hmmmm... these aren't too bad. They have cute stuffs for boys too.
Until I came across socks for girls.
I'm hoping my brother will get a girl so I could buy these for my little niece :D
Of all things I am, one that im sure im not is a fashionista.
I just can't.
Some people have issues where their inferiority gets over them and.......
"Owh I'm not pretty enough to wear those dress"
"Owh my legs are not long enough for the skinny jeans"
"Owh I have huge bottom and my chest are too small for the super nice kebaya"
"Owh I'm too chesty for the nice fancy t-shirt"
As for me, I never think I'm too big to get dress up. Neither do I think I'm too short or too rounded or too wide or anything T_________T
But my problem is. Everytime I wear pretty dress, or pretty top, or pretty skirt, or pretty whatever.. I looked in the mirror and say "I look too nice and I can't go shopping/uni/lunch/dinner like this. This is overdressed."
How could anyone ever have that thought.
Same goes to fancy scarves. Of which I means tudung/selendang. Not those neck scarves and mufflers. Ko ingat malaysia ade salji ke? And I wonder where mat rempit came from. They always in jumper, jacket, snow cap, and yes, muffler sometimes @___@
I saw all nice shawls everywhere - shops, kiosks, markets, and even blogshops.They are just too nice I can't put them on. Hehehehe. And the way they are worn nowadays, again, too nice too pretty. And very complex too. Complexity level is ..... kalau tibe2 rambut terkeluar sikit pastu nak betulkan tudung, kena cari toilet dan suruh kawan/boifren/suami pegi makan dulu, baru siap. Atau kalau nak pegi solat kat shopping mall, dan nak amek wudhu' yg kena bukak tudung pasal tudung mahal takleh kena air, boleh la suruh kawan/boifren/suami baca wirid panjang2 atau solat sunat tasbih dulu.
Heres easy one I found while blog-hopping...Cara Pakai Shawl. Nak browse baju mengandung sebenarnye. Offroad skit T____T
Still. If I can't put on a tudung/shawl in a car without looking at the mirror, that's not simple enough.
I find Malaysian society to be super sensitive. And to be sorry, all the sensitivity are not being utilized at the right situation, on the right person, neither it is on the right time.
Back in the early 90's or late 80's (not too sure bout the timeline, correct me if im wrong), the whole rockband of Wings was publicly getting a haircut by a government minister, cause they said the image of a rockband - those torn tshirt and super skinny jeans and long hair, has bad impact on the society. Seriously. Takkan rockers nak pakai tuxedo rambut gel penuh, belah tepi. Kecoh.
In late 90's, remember Gil? The cousin of boyband Moffats? He looks pretty much like Rody from Kristal. Muka jambu with long sliky straight hair. Government made him wore a cap/beret to cover his long hair when he did a tour to Malaysia. Reason being, the long hair image is not a good reflection of a decent Malay culture. Kamon la babeh, lagu dia jiwang, stok jiwa2 boleh kawan ngan Dafi AF kot. Again. Kecoh.
Recently, i was just reading Fynn Jamal's blog. People was criticizing one of her song. Saying the lyrics could lead to unwedded sex and baby dumping. I went to listen to that song. And i remember saying to myself "Really?". Doesnt sound out-of-ordinary, doesnt sound unethical at all. Its just a simple song with simple lyrics. Kecoh.
Oh, talking bout songs. Malaysian society again, dengan bersungguh-sungguh, analyse (as detail as anything could get) few stupid songs and link it to Jewish/Illuminati/Satan. Like really. They watch every milisecond of the video and check every single word of the lyrics. One that i could remember was "Asareje" by Las Ketchup. Cam bodoh sgt je lagu tu. Kecoh.
One that makes me wonder.
Like OMG penat nye aku pikir.
Arthurs Day is allowed in Malaysia? Bangga gila plak tu. Satu page penuh iklan dia. Nak kata penyanyi Malaysia tak participate, ade je. Nak kata it will be a clean concert? Huh, dalam mimpi pon tak lepas dude.
Orang buat ceramah kena tahan ISA, orang sambut Guiness Arthur's day takpe pulak. Nak promote Malaysia di mata dunia katanya. Baru global. Baru terkenal.
I feel like writing on customer service in Malaysia.
Quantity wise, I give 10/10. No other country has more labor than Malaysia does. We might have 10 times more CS reps as compared to any place elsewhere. Note the "might". I don't really know. Im just assuming. I might be exaggerating, like I always do.
Quality.... Hmmmmm.... I tried to give more than 5. I just couldn't. I couldn't even do more than 3. Its just pathetic.
Mari membincangkan kenape SiGemuk menulis tentang CS.
Saye dah bosan dengan salesgirl, akak kedai runcit, operator telefon air asia, akak jual tiket kat sales counter, akak budget cun keje kat kedai baju murahan kat sunway pyramid, dan akak2 yg rase mereka hot kerana mereke bekerja di kedai2 yg konon2 best tapi tak best pon seperti MNG dan Guess.
N: Kak, kalau beli tiket over the counter boleh dapat online price tak?
ABC: Online tu online la! Apsal nak counter plak.
N: (Cakap "Tak" je kan senang)
*ABC= Akak budget cun
N masuk ke kedai baju konon2 mahal dan saiz XL ialah untuk orang2 sebesar Husna dan memakai baju kurung selebet kegemaran. AKH memberi pandangan "Hey budak gemuk miskin, ape ko buat dalam kedai untuk orang kurus kaya ni hah?"
AKH tak sedar dia hanyalah salesgirl. Mungkin belajar pon tahap SRP je. Gaji pon takde la mane sgt. Gelabah kena over.
I couldn't write more when I did the initial "Birthday Wishes" post. So here's more. Elaboration from the initial pointless post :p
Technology's awesome. I cant imagine my life without facebook. I cant imagine myself applying for jobs, sending hundreds of copies of resume on snail mail. I cant imagine being so far away, not able to contact my loved ones. I cant imagine watching TV with 3 channels on, full of crappy dramas.
Oh well.. Maybe I can, but I refused to.
The world is getting smaller almost entirely a good thing. But hmmmm.... I think it gets meaningless over time.
Back in my school-ing days, we were still on film camera. Every shot counts since there's only 12, 24 or 36 shots available on one roll of films. To have it printed takes 3-4 days. It was kinda an exciting event to see the final product. 36 photos was all we had. But they all matters. Now, we have digital camera of which has a minimum capacity to store 1,000 photos; 36 shots only last u one pose at one place on one angle. So which of those 1,000 matters to u? Maybe less than 200 of them after flicking thru all of them for a million times. Hmmmmm....
Before mobile phones gets so mobile as it is right now, people were a lot more punctual. A meet up was as simple as fixing a date, time and venue, and turning up on the day. There's no mobile phone to tell the other person that we're going to be late. There's no room for delay. I think I stopped being punctual after awhile, because as much as I tried to be late, I will still be early. It gets annoying. I guess its easier to just follow the "technology" flow. Punctuality decrease as technology advancement increase. Shouldn't it suppose to be the other way around?
Do you remember the time pre-friendster-and-facebook era? Do you remember those biodata book and those fancy organizers you have? U have ur friends name and addresses, phone number, birth date all on that thing. Owh and favorite food, drinks and color. Anyway... That time u would send cards for ur friends birthday. Its not an easy thing, so you would only send it to those that matters. A close friend. A real friend. A meaningful wish. So to actually get a card, is a thing. To have a friend remember ur birthday is enough of an appreciation.
When sms era starts, I was already annoyed. 30 text messages in one day with similar template messages. It was too easy. It wasn't as meaningful anymore. Well.. It gets worst today. 100 messages posted on ur wall in one day... because ur birth date is clearly posted on ur wall. I experimented people's reliance on friendster/facebook. Mentioned this in the previous post. Its proven. Even my roommate didn't remember my birth date. I remember Hudra and Shasha messaging me saying "I thought u were born in August, why does it say July 7th?". Thanks girls, I appreciate those :)
Its a bonus to have a program to remind us when's important dates are. I'm not really saying those wishes on ur profile wall do not matter. Just that I think, it would be better off be remembered for being part of someone else's life. To have ur day planted in someone's memory matters more. To hear a person's voice feels more "human" than to read a writing on a virtual space. At least for me...
Ni tinggal sebulan. Apsal macam takde mende nak buat?
HAHAHAHAHAH *gelak keji*
Ok jom cari mende nak buat.
Hantaran 3 balas 5. Kalau boleh nak 2 balas 3 tapi nanti kena bebel. So pasrah je.
Mari buat list!
1) Cincin - checked
2) Watch - KIV
Lagi 3 ialah makan-makanan. Pasal tanak bagi "perishable" goods seperti shirt dan tie. Lagipon boleh makan sama2, hehehehehhe. Sirih pon tanak. Ape kejadah nye. Zaman millenium takde sape makan sirih. Membazir daun sirih je.
3)Kuih Kelantan as suggested by mama. Agak menarik. Akok, Buah Tanjong, Jala Mas, Taik Itik.
Rase2 logik tak makan-makanan ni diaturkan jadi macam Karaben?
Macam tak kreatif. Takpe, Oja kan ade. Dia kan hardcore jepun. Anything Japanese would do. Yang ni boleh tak? Hehehehehhe.
4) Cukelet :D Thinking of a box of Godiva. Malas fikir. Beli sekotak letak atas dulang. HAHAHAHAH.
5) Hmmmmmmm.... Ape lagi eh? Thinking of cake or cupcakes. Cake tastes better. Cupcakes look better. Tapi kat KB tak byk yg buat fancy cakes or cupcakes. Even if they are they might not taste good. Mungkin beli brownies kat Secret Recipe je. Senang.
These are the only two blogs I found that sells cake/cupcake in Kota Bharu - One and Two.
Last day at office was September 30th 2009. Have been bergembira menghabiskan duit eversince. Man it has been a lil over 5 months. I’d underestimate myself. I thought I would have 2 months of pure nothingness and I’ll be bored to death. I gave myself 3 months max to just sit and do nothing. Boy I was wrong. I’m still enjoying myself.
My short term cash is running out yeah. Tipu la kalau tak, kan. Ingat duit aku macam air Coke kat Subway? Refillable? But hey, what the hell. I care no more. I wanna do what I wanna do. Currently, I wanna do nothing. And its pure fun. Nanti duit abis I keje ogeh? Hik hik.
There’s one thing I miss tho. No, not those accounts. Hell no. Balance sheet, profit&loss statement, trial balance, tax returns – these makes me sick *puke*. I miss wearing shirt and work pants and high heels. I miss looking like a working woman. People thought I’m a college student everywhere I go. Mmg la, dah ko lepak tgh2 hari buta, mane ade org keje kuar mase office hour ngok! Oh well, I think I look good in office attire.
Owh, theres another thing too. I miss looking at my bank account decreasing and increasing every month. A nice pattern to look at. Now it has been downhill eversince October. Asyik kurang je. Tak tambah2 pon.
Pernah tengok perempuan nak bertunang pegi mall dan balik 30 minit sebelum majlis?
Pernah tengok orang perempuan nak bertunang makan bertambah di hadapan bakal ibu mertua dan bapa mertua?
Pernah tengok orang bertunang pakai baju raye?
Pernah pegi majlis tunang yg panas pasal rumah tak letrik?
Pernah pegi majlis tunang yg dihadiri oleh 8 orang termasuk bakal pengantin?
Jika jawapan anda ialah Tidak kepada semua soalan di atas, maka anda bukanlah termasuk dalam 8 orang yg menghadiri masjis pertunangan saya. Hik hik hik. Atas permintaan ramai, ini ialah kesemua 6 keping gambar yg diambil pada majlis itu. Gambar cincin nanti la ye :p
Ini ialah bakal pengantin. Kan best kalau boleh sanding camni. Kan santai tu.
