to all parents out there who have kids with talking talents :)

Ibu & bapa seringkali mengeluh apabila anak mereka terlalu becok,asyik mahu bercakap tanpa henti.Apabila ini berlaku, seringkali kita rasa marah dan malu kemudian cepat sahaja meninggikan suara dan mengeluarkan kata-kata seperti "Abang boleh diam tak?" @ "Becok btollah kakak ni..bingit lah Mommy!!" @ "Isk..asyik bercakappp jer! Sudah2 lah tu adik! Penat Daddy dengar!"sebagainya. Cuba kita tukarkan ayat kita itu menjadi satu ayat yg lebih positif dan menaikkan semangat mereka seperti, "Wahhh...kakak ni petah betul bercakap, dah besar boleh jadi pemidato yg hebat! Mommy htr ke kelas Public Speaking nak tak?" @ "Wow..anak Daddy memang bijak berkata-kata. Boleh jadi Ustaz Don junior dah besar nanti kan? Daddy & Uncle kat depan ni will be so proud of you sayang! Kan Uncle??". Secara spontan anak kita akan diam dan mula mendengar apa yg kita mahu katakan. Mungkin kita rasa pelik bila pertama kali mengaplikasikan ayat2 seperti ini, tapi apabila kita menjadikannya rutin harian, ia sgt mudah dan menjadikan kita lebih kreatif dalam menggunakan ayat2 yg positif dan membina. Insya Allah..

I got this from my FB friend.. just sharing some good info:)

Hashida's New Haircut

Last week, I took the chance to cut my girl, Hashida's hair. Her hair was big, long and curly that I don't think it suits her chubbiness.. This is what her hair used to look like

After birth...

And this was a year later..(1 year old)

A year after the above picture..(2 years old)

And another year passed..(3 years old)

So, her hair grown so fast as well as her body. Since she never wanted her hair to be tied or to be put any accessories on them, I decided to just cut her hair. Before this, I just asked my aunt to cut or trim her hair. When I thought that her house is quite far from our place, so I just brought Hashida to a hair saloon near Emart Matang.

This is how Hashida looked like befor her hair was cut...

I was a bit afraid that she might cry or insisted to get down of the chair, but anak mama was behaving very good that day. She said she wanted to look pretty. That's my baby :).. the hairdresser blowed her hair and made her look pretty and cute and cut her hair with chinadoll style.

This was her after cut-the-hair session..

She asked, "cantik tak?" to my husband and I. Well, ofcourse she looked adorable and cute! She was very happy with her hairstyle and smiled all the way out of the hair saloon. I must give a credit to the hairdresser because being very passion along the session. A hairdresser to me has to has that credibility and can stand customers behaviours.. So, out we went after paying RM16 for Hashida and my haircuts.. cheap eh??

After just one week, this was what her hair looked like.. :P

Hashida was posing with Hashimi, her little brother. It's ok honey. Mama loves you eternally no matter how your hair looks like <3 p="p">

Hashimi's new portable nebulizer :)

Well, i've got the mood to write something in here since this blog already berhabuk. Am going to write about Hashimi's new portable nebulizer. my boy has been suffering with asthma since he was 4 months old. this breathing problem came to it's peak when he was 1 year old. my husband and i have spent so many nights (well to be exact, midnight) going to E&T department. name all the specialist we got here in kuching, all had got visits from us. once, we went to KPJ kuching and was asked by the specialist to admit Hashimi there for further check up. but i thought of how much money will be spent there and that brought us to SGH. the last time hashimi was warded was somewhere in April 2012. he was warded for 4 nights.

it was a hard time for me. really hard. but i took it positively that God had better plans for us and especially for Hashimi. it all started after hashimi and his sister got flu, fever and cough. hashimi is a very fragile little boy especially when it comes to flu and cough and to make things worse, cold day. so, after been discharged from hospital, the specialist provided us with AEROCHAMBER which is for hashimi to use with ventolin inhaler. they gave us two types of inhaler. one with light brown colour on the cap and the other one is in dark blue colour. the light brown is for everyday use that is to prevent the asthma from attacking. and the dark blue is to use when emergency. by now, i only use the dark blue cap inhaler for about 6 times.

so, each time used, we have to puff two times using the aerochamber and hashimi will inhale through it. everythings seems to be ok for about 5 months. hashimi had never stand without asthma attack for that long and i guess that was quite a relief until one day, somewhere in the middle of september, hashimi got flu and cough and of course asthma came after that. at first, we brought him to a private clinic. he was given a neb and the doctor gave him salbutamol supply. his condition got worst after that plus the heavy rain outside. so, my husband and i decided to bring him to SGH for nebuliser. he got neb twice and then, we just got out of the E&T room.

the next morning, while invigilating for UPSR, my mind was everywhere, my heart was restless thinking of what will happened next? will hashimi be admitted for another time? how is he doing at home?  does he breath well? i could not focus on my tasks. so, later i text my husband that after work we will go to pharmacy to look for a nebulizer machine so that we can monitor hashimi from home. after the paper of the day finished, i rushed home to find my husband was already home and been babysitting our kids since morning. he took a leave that day. after a short lunch we made our way to the nearest pharmacy in Matang. oh, i forgot to mention that i text one of my colleagues before to ask where can we find a nebulizer machine so she suggested that place.

upon our arrival, my husband imidiately asked the pharmacist. she later showed us one small nebulizer machine. then, my husband requested for demonstration and all of us stood in one circle to see how that machine works.. aahhahahh... and all of a sudden thick mist came out of the machine (well, it is suppose to do so :) ) and everyone was likee...wahhh!! everyone seemed to be in aweeeee... i found that quite funny because the workers themselves never saw that machine functioning. that was one silent, noiseless nebulizer machine. it's very small that it is only the size of my palm. and it is very easy to operate. just put a few drop of water, the medicine and voila! the nebulizer machine is on its duty..

so, that's it! so far, hashimi is doing good. i think he likes the machine very much because it doesnt have sound at all...i'll update anything about this later if i have leisure time to write in here. sayonara!!

middle nite blogger...

all of a sudden tonight i am eager to update my blog. maklum la dah berkulapuk...jadi last time i remember i updated my blog was around august this year. dari beranak sorang, sekarang dah ada two beautiful and adorable bundle of joy.. how time flies..

during my 2 years plus of being a parent, there are ups and downs...but i think that's pretty normal la. no down, how can we go up??? especially when my children were sick, ill or most terrible of all admitted to hospital. and i think all of the things i went through gave me A++ experiences for me. so, it's fair if i share the experiences so at least parents out there can avoid bad things to come.


my daughter, 2 years, 6months and 23 days to date. she's been a good girl since she was born. she never gave me hard times. she woke up at 8 every morning. she slept at 8 every night. no trouble at all. except that she got this skin problem maybe due to environment (or maybe i-hate-to-admit-this because of my overconsume of soybean milk during my pregnancy). we went to the specialist, we changed formula milk and at last we found this cream; elomet

but this cream is not highly recommended especially for babies because it contains steroids. so, i just used this cream when necessary only. when she reached one year old, miraclely her skin problem stopped! but then, she started to get fever every month. but, some people say that it's good for babies to have fever because that's the way their body fights bad things in their bodies. so, when she was 1year and 6months old, she got high fever and dehydrated. she didn't want to eat but she still able to have milk. but the main problem is, whenever she had milk, she threw up and that made her dehydrated. so, she was admitted to hospital and being dripped and monitored by doctors. the doctors advised not to have milk. give her whatever, snacks, syrups, porridge or anything but milk. i tried but she refused to have anything but milk! 2 days later, i think she gave up. she requested for 'bo-bo' which means porridge and she ate half bowl. i was relieved and she was discharged later evening. Phew!! that is quite an experience dont u think? after that, shida was healthy as ever... but now she's over healthy i must say. the nurses who did the check up to her early this month had categorized her as obese! one of the problem with obesity is to monitor her diet. how can u stop a child from eating? that's a bad habit i know but i dont think she's that obese considering her height. people always see her as a 4-yrs-old child. but whenever she opens her mouth to talk, people ask about her age. and to their surprise she's not even 3 yrs old!
that's it about to my baby boy

a friend of mine suggested me to put 'ramadhan' in my son's name since he was born in ramadhan (muslim's calendar). and so do my family. i like 'ramadhan' so why not put ramadhan in his name. it's a holy month then. well, enough said. let me tell you about my boy. since he was born he didnt get any other problems like his sister who got jaundice since day 1 (did i tell you that?). his MAIN problem is breathing. every time he breathed he couldnt get enough oxygen. when he was out of my womb, he didnt cry! he looked blue and pale and i sensed that he got this problem with breathing. and how right was i? the doctor said he got respiratory problem and have to be monitored and gave antibiotics. not again? his sister was admitted in paed ward since day 1 and not my son again? so, then, my baby boy was there in paed ward for 12 days. he was discharged on 23rd of august and on the 24th, my grandfather passed away.. how sad was that? the joy of having new member in the house was crushed with sad news like this. however, i know a good friend who experienced worst than this. cant imagine how she handle her feelings. mixed feeling, mixed, until he was 7month, nothing serious happened except for he had high fever when he was only 40 days old. he was soooo close to be admitted and God!! you just can't imagine my feelings that time. a few days after he was recovered, shida was admitted to hospital.. when shimi was 7 moths old, he got his first asthma attack. since then, every month he got neb atleast once. so, i tried this oil.. jerslin oil and white scott's emulsion. alhamdulillah, he was okay for nearly 3 months. but in november 2011, he was attacked AGAIN. i was really down that time. all i ever wish was for my boy to be healthy. it turned out that he got bronchitis and i realized that every cold weather, he'll have trouble breathing. he was admitted for 2 days and finally my hubby and i decided to buy the neb machine so we dont have to go to emergency every time shimi got trouble breathing.

ok, that's it. before i suffer backache i better stop. till then, see you when i got the mood to write!

The Second Adventure...

Belum pun habis cerita pasal first babyku kat first entree ya, dah ada nak second baby..eehehhe.. Ceritanya mcm tok....
lebih kurang la mcm nak first one. Actually, I never planned on this second one (not this close ok!) and all of a sudden after 3 months of not having my mens... check2...dua line naik berdesup! That means, my daughter was only 5 months old when I got this little one (another one) in my womb..
The first baby was born thru caesarean, I pretty much expected that this second one will be born naturally.. Well, the doctor did not put high hopes on that but still it was possible.
A few days before my due date, (expected to deliver at least on 20th august 2010) on 2nd day of Ramadhan 1431 Hijrah.. I was bleeding after sahur. Tuija juak nak sahur ya...eheheh... mcm ada mix darah n lendir. Mom suggested to go to GH for further check up because most probably, the baby's ready to come out.. Rileks jak ku masa ya. aku sik cium pun Hashida.. sbb aku sedih..aku takut aku nangis dan akan jejaskan emosi dan tekanan darah aku. Aku limpas jak bilit mak sbb Hashida ada dalam ya walaupun hati aku meronta nak cium tangan mak, nak cium Hashida...
Sampey jak di GH, aku terus dimasuk ke labour ward sbb tekanan darah aku TINGGI gilak..berapa kali kenak cek akhirnya dtg doktor mengerobok aku...nya mdh bukak baruk 1.5 cm...sedihnya aku masa ya. maksudnya lamak gik nak nunggu bukak besar. Doa aku pada tuhan semoga dipermudahkan aku beranak kali tok. Maksudnya beranak biasa...
Dipendekkan cerita, 2 org doktor pakar dtg jumpa aku. Educate me on my method of delivery. 2 choices was given and only God knows how stressful I was at that time...First choice, normal delivery..the risk? During the process, anything can happen to the baby and me or my womb. They cant say what the risk might be but there are always there... Second choice, another caesarean. Since the first child was delivered by caesarean, if i go on with another c-sect, i have limited number of children..currently only 3 childs are allowed...and i have to take the risk after the c-sect process..bleeding...scars and all post operation effects.. which one did i take? what choice did i have?
