Kaedah Budak 7 bulan!

Armand is 7months, 2weeks old... lebih kurang... i would say, he's pretty much the normal 7months baby.... crawling all over the house... eager to walk... hanging on to cabinets... love tv remote controls.. handphones...  *phewwww* tak menang tangan menjaga budak ni... sape kata jadik mak ni senang... huhuh... *terus cium tangan mak sendiri*

So... having a 'moving' baby which is quite hard to control every single movement of his/hers.... what can we do as parents, to minimize their so called 'prone to injuries'? hmmmm.... have you 'child-proof' your home? buang terus meja yg ada bucu2 tajam? owh... sungguh over... ahahahha... as for us, we only managed to remove our tv cabinets... wall mounted our TV... change to higher table to put all those dvd player/ astro/ speakers and etc... hide all the power points as much as we can... other than that.. we don't know what to do.. hehe... if all 3 of us (mummy, daddy and Kak Pur the maid) need to 'work' around the house... we will leave Armand with his toys in his babycot.... bring the babycot close to the door so that he can see us 'working' around the house... budak2 kecik ni bising kalo dia duk sorg2... ke anak uols ok terkelip2 sorg2 tak nampak mak ayah dia.. hehe

ooooom pe cak! inilah gunanya ada babycot yg gabak... ekekke..

for the never ending crawling.. hanging to cabinets.. i don't think i can manage to hear he screams every time when i pulled him away... no choice.. just to follow him everywhere he goes... haihhhh... *semangat utk mummy/ daddy kuruih!*

kantoi! saya sgt suka memanjat tangga umah nenek... daddy dia duk ikut je lah kt blkg.. kang tergolek.. benjol!

WARNING: don't feed your baby after 7pm! he'll be super active... ala2 sugar rush gitu! huishhhh... all i can do is distract him every 10 mins with new things... and yes, his toys are no longer attractive after 10 mins... last night... i gave him tupperware! ahahaha...

oh yeahhhhh.... half an hour with it... banging it... turning and twirling with it.... and suddenly...

jegelup!

so mommies, what did you do to cater to your baby 'moving needs'? care to share...

*sniff sniff*

shrotttttttttttttttttttttt.......... idung saya bermukus hari ahad lepas! my body temperature 37.8 deg C! mummy and daddy keep sponging me all night...... temp go down to 36.9....  but rise again the next morning... so they brought me to see DocSanjay.... temp back to 37.6... doc said it's a 'normal fever'... baby under one year, usually will have a bit feverish, their natural way to fight disease.. monitor his temp not to go above 38... he'll be okay in 2-3 days.. no medication needed... so mummy and daddy just keep sponging to keep me cool... and for the stuffy nose... mummy 'sprayed' me the Sterima... i think it's a mixture of salt and water.. just to keep the airway clear... huhu... i don't like!

i'll scream everytime i got sprayed!

but after that i felt much better... and sleep!!

during visit to DocSanjay... we had to wait almost 2 hours.. first, we are on the waiting list because of emergency appointment.. secondly, doc's gonna be on a 'holiday' for a week.. so the whole week appt were brought forward on Monday.. aishhhh... me so bored.. with stuffy nose... so stressed! *mummy oso* but mummy knows how to distract me.... finally i can use the mini playground at SDMC...

 sorry peeps.. no energy to smile!

owh... flower looks nice!

today... i felt wayyyyyyy better! no more high temperature... alhamdulillah.. nose still a bit stuffy.... but no more sneezing... insyaAllah i will be 100% free from disease by this weekend so we can have fun in Kuching! yayyy... another flight trip!! hhhmmmmm..... but this time AirAsia... definitely cannot get the baby bassinet! during the trip to Vietnam... i got to be in the bassinet.. so cool! pic in mummy's iPhone.. hmm.. she doesn't know how to transfer it to laptop! ahhaha... yes.. mummy hates iPhone.. she's a blackberry person...

can't wait for KCH trip!

I'm 7 months on Mummy's bday!!

 5th November 2011... mummy celebrated her 32nd birthday... *yaaa... mummy saya tak muda dah.. hehe* and that makes me 7 months!! yayyy... mummy promised, when i reached 7th months, she wanted to start to add rice and meat to my food... yippeeeee!!!!! :)


As it was on Saturday... daddy ordered mummy's favourite flower, Lilies to the house... hmmm... mati2 i ingat bunga tu utk i sempena 7 bulan... hoh! Daddy also ordered mummy's favourite cake.. carrot cake... mummy ate a lot... hmmm... pastu mengadu berat tak turun2.. hmmm... we had fun as all the families were here for Aidiladha... happy2... laugh2... all the way... other photos are forbidden to public... ahahahhaah....

Armand: "So mummy.. how about my rice and meat???? :)"
Mummy: "yelah yelahhhhhh....."

Puree: Rice with fish and carrot

Ingredients: one small carrot, 1/2 fish (no bones and skin - and i use Seabass *siakap la dlm bahser melayu*... ahhaha), 1/2 cup of rice

steam fish + carrot for 15-20 mins



Blend rice using dry blender until it's smooth.. then take 1/2 cup... the rest keep in a airtight tupperware. Why I blend it? it makes it easier to cook the rice... no more than 5mins! cool aite??

 Cook the rice... add reasonable water of course... *pok pok sape2 yg tak reti masak bubur.. hish*

within minutes, the blended rice will cook smoothly... jangan duk campur garam gula pulak ya...

Then pour the cooked rice into the steamed carrot + fish...

 Blend it together... until puree smooth... this last texture, depends on your baby... Armand doesn't like lumpy food... so everything needs to be pureed. Some babies prefer lumps bit here and there....

put into your babycubes! with the above portion, i managed to fill up 16 babycubes. Wait until it cools down... and freeze it up! :) i usually microwave it for 3 mins.. and add some chilled EBM before serving it to Armand... and he loves to eat! hehe... which babies do not? hiks! Armand eats 3 times a day.. dinner only banana or prune juice.....

Happy trying mommies!

As for Armand... he had a blast! :) Grandpa and Tok, Nda Na and Ami Faiz, Abe, Abe Adeem and Kak Naili flew all the way from Pasir Mas to celebrate Aidiladha with us here in KL... Nda Tik and family didn't join because Kak Lia is sitting for SPM this year.. so she prefers not to follow... but promised after SPM, she'll hang out in KL for as long as she can.. ahhaha... 

So, for the first time for me, on Hari Raya... No food prepared! hehe... we visited our relatives the whole day instead.. First stop, of course Nenek and Atok in Kelana Jaya.. after that... Ami Syed Jalaluddin and Nda Sah in Bangsar.. lastly Nda Teh at Jalan San Ah Wing (betul ker nama jalan neh... alah.. yg dkt jalan gurney keramat tuhh...)... As usual, Armand will play 'adult' by holding on to any cabinets that he can reach! aihhhh... baru merangkak sebulan.. sibuk nak berdiri dah.. hishhh... sabor la anak weiiii... penat mummy nak kejor!

i like to be cute when mummy takes a photo of mine... daddy said, Armand senyum kambin...

Xin chào VietNam - final!

ya yaaa... i know... so long never finish yet ka citer vietnam neh... ekkeke... one more one more... :) final odi.. just to summarize...

we had fun!

 Vietnam roads look like impossible to cross.. heheh... 80% of it, full of motorcyclists... but i can assure you, they will never run you down... and i think their accident rate is lower than ours too.. hehe...
one more thing that amazes me is, their helmet!!! soooo cute!!! *kalo kat msia.. mmg tak lulus helmet camni yaa* also can be bought along the streets.. murah murah jual...


not really a 'leisure vacation'.. especially when you are traveling with your parents and baby! only valid thing to do.. is shopping! ehehe...

this is my hasil.. chiffon and cotton! :) *the plain orange have been 'cut' into skirt!* hehe.. definite sharing with you the outcome...

last but not least... the main reason why Vietnam is my choice.. is to attend Bodyjam Advanced Instructor Module 1 in California Fitness & Yoga, Hung Vuong Plaza... this is the gang... :) i had a blast... wishing to continue my Bodyjam teaching very soon... *owh.. cepat la kurussss!* thanks to Arnold Warren for the valuable feedback! thanks to Annie, Philip, DJ and Ing for the warmth hospitality.... :) do contact me if you are coming to Kuala Lumpur for workshop ya...

Leo jahit baju!

yessssss.... i made it!! i have successfully made a caftan blouse wedding gown  in 2 hours!! (with Armand 'helping' around of course... geget geget tali inci.. seb baik mummy beli 3)... yelah yelah... caftan blouse jek.... bukannya baju gempak2... sabor leeerrr... slow2 dulu... nanti advance la sket ekk.. gimme time k.. :)

material is chiffon... :) bought from recently Vietnam trip of course... Dong80,000. (1.5m)
caftan blouse with boat-neck... this is my 1st trial... next caftan will be more on the design.. and hopefully to make a trip to Jalan TAR soon... nak beli manik2, kristal2 ka.. so takdelah nampak kosong sgt kaftan tu...


mlm semlm buat (sambil dgr Vokal Bukan Sekadar Rupa - and post ni ditulis ari senin mlm.. ehhe)... hari ni mummy melaram pi opis lorrr...
as i didn't make any lining, i wear it with inner instead... *kalo inner tu kaler belacan cantik kann.. huhu.. esok carik kt Mydin* my old Bawal tudung... Dianpelangi style.. nak jugak tiru minah gempak tu kan.. ekkekek... *do browse her blog.. love her style!* 
Sorry Dian... ter-marketing awak punya blog kat sini.. :)

i have a vision.. a Nawaitu... which is, at least, i want to be able to sew my children school clothes :) just like my Mak.. i want to be super duper mommy like her... working mom... but still have time to check her children's school work... still make time to cook for us... sew all our clothes.. kurung, kebaya, blouse, skirt.. you name it... also being a super busy grandmother at 72yrs of age and still sew Armand's bed cover and stuff.. *phewww* insyaAllah... i'm blessed if i even can do half from what she has done for us... hubby gives me 120% support... :) *also a critic to my sewing skill... hahaha*

commercial? hmmm.. let's see how it goes... as of now, this is my hobby... just like Bodyjam... however... i'm so inspired by several bloggers with their creativity and design... DianPelangi is one of them of course... Others in my top list are:

They are, of course doing this as a full time... All the best for them!! 

As for me.. We never know.. rezeki Allah nak bagi kita tak tau.... tapi yang penting, kita kena berusaha dgn gigih dan berdoa bersungguh2... Allah janji, Dia tidak akan mengubah nasib kita kalau kita sendiri tidak cuba mengubahnya... :) Dari dulu, this is so my principal.. if you want something.. really work smart for it... if you don't get it, meaning Allah has better plan for you... Aminnnn... :)

syukur dgn kebolehan yg dianugerahNya...
