Bismillah...


Kesinambungan dari previous entry, aku tgh berusaha kuruskan badan kan... 1st session was last Monday (semlm).

Kak yantee msg tny cmne ok ke bla bla... Aku ckp ok. Takde sakit badan. Lenguh2 biase jela takde teruk sangat.

And she kept reminding me to control what i eat. Fuhh bagus trainer ni ekekeke... Tp seriously susah nak control makan. Bila aku makan sikit, susu jadi sikit. Arini mcm kurang sikit makan dari biase (biase = mkn mcd/kfc/pizza or nasi 2 pinggan for lunch! Kahkah)

Fine. Bole je kurang makan tp kena minum air byk sgt cos very very thirsty especially lps nyusu anak/pam.

And today, 1st time stock susu ebm (chilled) abis sebelum aku abis keje...


Stock chilled ebm aku (mmg xde buat stock utk frozen cos takde lebihan)

Setiap hari every morning aku pastikan ada 4 botol susu ebm utk Raiq minum. 1 botol mengandungi 4oz susu. Tahan dari pagi smpai petang pukul 4-5... Aku pergi kerja lambat ya. Kedai buka 10.30pagi. Aku masuk kedai around 11-12 tengah hari (ikut sukahatiku la hehehe). Kat rumah pagi tu sempat direct feed or pump... Kalau bibik rajin masak, sempat makan dulu.

Anyway, arini left home dgn hanya 2 botol susu. 1 botol xsampai 4oz pun... Stress aku huhu... So petang tadi amik Raiq bawak ke kedai cos bagi direct feed je senang. I dont have time to pump.

Aku sangat2 lah busy lately. Memang tak menang tangan. Nak makan, nak solat pun terkejar2. Inikan lagi nak pam. Cmne la nak manage time dgn efisien.

Ok fine aku tau, tp susah nk buat.

Kena buat jadual pasni cos aku new routine (work out) plak nak ditambah dlm sehari.

Mcm arini takde sesi ke gym, but I managed to work out before mandi/siap pergi kedai pagi tadi. 10 minit atas cross trainer. Jadilahhhh...

Kelakar... 10 minit atas cross trainer kt rumah punyela hazab nak abiskan masa. Kat gym aritu 30mins atas treadmill boleh je... Huhuhu. Kena ade org teman. Ngengada btl lah


Ok ok raiq bgn lak. Sambung later. Bye

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim...




1st Feb 2016.

After 6 months operate (c-zer), baru lah aku nak beria sikit mengurangkan berat badan.

Kali ni aku amik trainer sebab aku tak nak  hangat2 taik ayam. And aku nakkkkk sangat berat aku berkurang. Preggy kali ke-3 aritu kena GDM weh. 

Mak aku ade kencing manis smpai cucuk insulin.

Yong pun ada kencing manis.

Aku ada risiko cos dah pernah kencing manis preggy kan. Huuuu...

Maka, kena kurangkan berat. Kena kontrol makan.

Nak kontrol makan sangatlah susah lagi2 ibu yang menyusukan (Raiq still minum breastmilk till now. Aku masih belum introduce solid food)

Aku asyik lapar je. And tak boleh tak makan nasik. Nanti takde susu pulak.

My trainer is Kak Yantee... Weee... Dia seorg ibu. Dia pun pernah czer (3x dah!). Dia pun pernah beranak normal jugak (1st baby normal, mcm aku). Dia pun nyusukan anak. So dia mmg paham sangat la tahap lapar ibu menyusukan cmne.

Haih.. Semoga istiqamah la yer.

Berusahalah ana. Kau pasti bolehhhh! 

Permudahkanlah ya Allah...

I want to be fit and healthy. 


Kasut baru beli... Ekekekeke...

Sebab pagi tadi aku pakai kasut futsal laki aku. Nasib baik muat. Punyelah tak ingat aku takde sport shoes (yela berapa zaman ko tak bersukan hoii)... Bila Kak Yanti call suh bawak tuala & botol air, aku tanya la "kak kena pakai sport shoes ke.. Sy pakai sandal bole tak?"

"Ish budak ni... Mane leh masuk gym pakai sandal oi... WAJIB pakai sport shoes"


Huahuahua.. Gigih aku shopping kasut sukan senja tadi. Esok takde session. Rabu pulak.

Sempat la esok shopping seluar and baju pulak... Kahkah..

Alhamdulillah...

Bismillah...

Aku ade penyakit pelik. Not really a "penyakit"/disease la kot... Tapi benda ni berlaku.

Baru je berlaku petang tadi.

Aku ade penyakit yang tiba-tiba je sakit tengkuk. Sakit yang tiba-tiba je datang. Sakit yang amat sangat sampai aku terhenti bercakap/berjalan/buat keje sebab tengkuk aku sakit sangat.

Sakit yang sampai tersenget-senget bahu tahan sakit. Sakit yang buat aku berhenti and makin rapatkan kepala ke bumi menahan sakit.

Tapi sekejap je. Tak sampai 1 minit.

Seperti mana tiba-tiba je sakit tu datang, tiba-tiba juga dia berhenti.

Been having this since i was a child. Sejak darjah 2-3 kot. Tapi sangat jarang-jarang berlaku. 

Dalam setahun maybe ade sekali or dua kali je (if ever). Tapi mmg acute pain.

Risau pulak.

Sebab apa dan bagaimana nak stop?


I've no idea.



Alhamdulillah...

Kecoh timeline FB aku dengan kes breastfeeding.

Bagi aku personally, takde mende pun. Am I offended if people whip out their tits to feed their hungry babes? No.

But to other people it seems very offensive. Oh well, still figuring that out.

Yang pasti, lepas ni semua mak-mak yang menyusukan akan lebih berhati-hati dengan gambar menyusukan anak haha...

And tak kurang juga yang akan still pandang pelik dengan ibu-ibu yang menyusukan anak di tempat public ni. Dari komen-komen yang bahasa sangat memualkan, you'll see lah...

"Tak malu ke... pergi la kat kereta, masuk toilet bla bla bla"

"Laki dayus biarkan bini menyusu bagi orang tengok (xnampak pun)" and bla bla bla


Can't help but felt a little hurt by such harsh comments.



Sedih eh... How to normalize breastfeeding then?

Mulanya macam tak paham sangat... eh, men get aroused ke bila tengok baby nyusu?? For me it's like... omg, really eh??

But it seems so.

Susah nak ubah mentaliti orang makanya... follow the flow & advices lah. *shrugs*


On another note on breastfeeding woes;-

Raiq is now 5 months and demanded 5 oz per feeding! I pumped 9oz paling banyak per session (only 2 sessions of expressing milk daily)... dulu 9 oz dapat 3 feedings (3oz per bottle), now nak dapat 2 pun payah. Sedihhhh... mula la mikio nak start campur FM je...

Sian anak2 aku... start 5, 6 bulan je mulala mak kome campur yer.... yang pastinya bila dah campur, aku takkan pam dah cos malas. Errr...

See? Bukan senang nak nyusukan anak dengan susu terbaik di dunia. Macam-macam halangan. Maka janganla hentam ibu2 yang menyusukan ni.


Sekian.

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim....


I have so many things to jot down, but being a working mother of 3 sons now, I found it really really hard to find some alone time to pause, reflect and write in my blog.

Let's start with the bad things I have to face.

I don't have enough manpower to handle all the admin work. I have lots of stuff in the shop, but haven't had time to upload them online! Which is really bad for business cos I depended on online sales 80%!

I have my brother working with me but you know, being a single man and not really into baby stuff, it's really hard la to ask him to do this and that. He's just not into this baby stuff thingy. Understandable really... If I don't have children, I wouldn't be interested as well!

Some of the time, I do get annoyed and really 'terasa hati' when I found out my customers (kutu player IN FACT) didn't admit they buy the stuff from me. Instead, bole plak sebut kedai lain. Sabar jelah kannn...

You're on my kutu group and you always pay LATE, then when you share pics on your facebook and people asked where you bought it, you said elsewhere!

Terasa wei. Kot yer pun malu beli secara kutu, takyah la sebut beli guna kutu. cakap jela beli dari Mama Panda. Settle.

Kenapa aku terasa? Ntah... tak leh ke?

hmmm... kita ni bisnes kecik-kecik nak tolong orang. Cos tak semua orang mampu beli barang branded-branded ni cash. Yer, paham tu. That's why buat kutu. Tapi bila orang tak appreciate, terasa la.

Ape yang buat aku still buat kutu dari 2012 till now? Well nasib baik la lebih ramai yang menghargai dari yang tak ngaku. Yang tak ngaku nyer sorang la yang aku perasan now. Yang lain bagi feedback mencairkan hati.

"Nasib baik Ana buat kutu ni... kalau cash gedebuk memang akak tak mampu la nak beli... nak beli yang elok supaya tahan lama.. alhamdulillah yang XXX dulu tu sampai adik dia ni leh pakai pulak... berbaloi sangat"


Those are the words I cherished.

I may not be a very friendly seller asking for feedback and always contact customers back (cos I'm a really busy woman), but seriously I treasured those feedbacks.

kalau nak dikumpulkan testimonial dari customers, berlambak-lambak lah kot. Aku takde masa nak save pulak. huhu...

Ape-ape pun tu la... antara cabaran-cabaran berbisnes ni weh.

Macam-macam.



Ada banyak lagi aku nak citer tapi busy nak mampus so better sambung lain kali.


Bye

bismillahirrahmanirrahim...


Pukul 1.20 pagi ni wei... tapi since takde keroje and takleh tido, aku nak review tentang stroller ni. Rajinnyeeee nak review stroller yang aku tak jual pun! HAHA... hampeh. Takpela sharing is caring.


Ni baru kali kedua stroller ni dibawak keluar and guna untuk strolling around hehehe


Sejarah pembelian stroller:-

a) Bought in March 2015 from US. Posted using USPS and arrived in Lumut 2 weeks later. First time beli barang cecah ribuan ringgit dari US. Aku confident barang sampai cos sebelum beli ni ade kawan FB dah beli dulu warna biru. Sampai barangnye. Lega haha. So baru lah aku order.

b) Peram tak pakai sampai baby lahir. Baby no.3 lahir 29 Julai 2015. Still tak pakai lagi until baby dh 2 bulan/abis pantang. Tu pun pergi Tesco je. =P

c) Stroller ni tak datang dengan adapters for Maxi Cosi carseats. Aku beli kemudian at RM190 kot? Lupe dah berapa... 

Phil & Teds Verve V3 in Cherry.
Comes with bumper bar and suncover for 2nd seat
(I think? cos it's a netting stuff I don't use, I just leave it at home)

Tapi kat gambar atas sekali tu aku tak pakai bumper bar since tempat cucuk tu 
diganti dengan adapter for Maxi Cosi carseat. Both items kalau tak pakai leh biar je kat stroller bila dah lipat. Tak ganggu pun...


Actually, before purchasing this stroller, I was considering another double/tandem stroller which is the Baby Jogger City Select double stroller.

TAPI sebab Baby Jogger tu seats dia tak boleh fold sekali and have to be taken out, then it is not an option lah. Cos I hate removing/disassembling strollers for a quick out and about. Moreover, I was usually alone and I can't have a stroller that needs some time to store in the boot.

So why did I buy the Phil & Teds Verve V3 stroller?

1. First and foremost, mesti boleh fold both seats altogether. Need to save space and time. Checked!

2. Big space for the 2nd seat. Yelah, yang duduk bawah tu kesian le kalau sempit kan. But no, it is spacious. My chubby abg sado (18 months) could fit just fine with plenty of leg room.

3. Can be used with Maxi Cosi carseats. Of course, since I'll be having an infant carseat too kan... Might as well put it on the stroller if I can. Checked.


Quite compact. Okla for us.
Muat dalam Honda CRV and Nissan Serena.

And this is the pic by my friend - packed inside her car...
Kalau tak silap kereta Honda Odyssey

Cantik kan warna biru ni? =D
Pic credit to Kak Tini.



More info on this stroller:-

a) This stroller is intended for children from newborn to 5 years. (which is great for me cos Razin will be 5 next year and Raiq, the youngest is 4 months now. All my 3 boys can fit in this stroller hehe)

b) Maximum weight in the newborn position is 9 kg. Actually stroller ni leh rearward facing tapi tak pernah try cos macam leceh nak cabut seat bagai... so abaikan. I use infant carseat je senang. Selagi muat leh duduk dalam tu.

c) Maximum weight in the upright main seat is 20kg

d) Maximum weight in the double kit on rear is 15kg. Oklah... now berat Raul 14-15 kg ok je =P

e) Adjustable sun hood. Canopy or hood untuk lindung dari cahaya matahari tu boleh diadjust mengikut sinaran matahari yang kena pada budak. Bahagian belakang canopy tu tak melekat pada frame stroller, so boleh ubah-ubah.




f) Adjustable handle. Yang ni best so takdelah if mak/ayah yang tinggi kena menunduk or lenguh tangan ke ape...


Phil & Teds Verve adjustable handle. Vibe pun sama rasanya.



On the Phil & Teds stroller, my 4 months old baby was in a Maxi Cosi Pebble Plus.
(the newborn insert already removed)



The adapters that were purchased separately.




Hehe... My boys loved it!


Jangan risau or kesian kat baby yang duduk bawah tu ya... cos ruang luas and bukannye tak nampak ape. Still leh tengok ke luar, no big deal. My boy loves it! Raul boleh duduk depan and boleh duduk belakang... dia tak kisah asalkan stroller tu bergerak. haha...


Raul. 18 months.
Weight: 14-15kg




Kemain happy lagi Raiq kalau bawak berjalan.

Balik Beruas jela baru berjalan keliling kampung dlm stroller...

Kalau kat Lumut, jalan dalam malls jelah huhu....


Overall, really satisfied with this stroller.

Sayang weh... setiap kali lepas jalan aku lap tayar bagi bersih so leh letak masuk rumah.

Gile tak sayang, stroller paling merabakkan poket kot ni...

Semoga berkhidmat dalam masa yang lama. 

Adios.
