The One Where I Celebated My 36th Birthday

I am only inches away from being 40.
If you think that excites me...think again.

We had spent the day before taking the no2 and no3 to KLCC.


 

No I did not try to juggle 2 strollers in one go hehehe

Anyhow...yes I was rethinking about what goes on around me and it was at that moment that I thought it was high time for me to make some adjustments to my NOW and ONGOING life. One of which is this.

Anyway my most beloved brother as usual had surprised me a Boston Cheesecake which was superb. Nothing more I wish for...honestly.


An in tradition, I had asked one of my kids to blow out the candles (all 36 of them!) while I made the wish :)


p/s I wished for more wishes as usual :P

Happy 2 Month Old Amel

My very "sopan" third in line Amel is 2 today.


2 Month that is :)

She is like I said extremely "sopan" - even when she cries dia sangat sopan. I never noticed this until I went to a family function and there was another baby. The decibels were ultimately apparently different ya! With Amel being the most lowest - sopan la tu hehe

Now that she is 2 month old I kinda know why out of spur of the moment I named her A'amelia. She can be trusted definitely. She not that much of a fussy baby and can be trusted when I need a little "me" time or extra time to do the house chores.

But Amel is a mommy's gal in every sense. Tidur mahu natural pacifier that I cringe on other mommies who have the same deal and need to go out of town on business. Kesian mereka.

I also trust that Amel will be the one to soothe my heart - yang akan hiburkan hati mak dia when I am old and fray. The one yang "Ma, Amel beli handbag baru untuk Mama" or "Mama jom kita makan kat Chillies Amel belanja". Syasya is daddy's girl so I dont hope much. Aliya mungkin time tu dah busy dgn family dia sendiri, who knows...

Amel and her kesopanan - she will have a very very soft heart when she grows up...I can bet on that.

Its what I see in my brother and my cousins - mesti ada satu yang rajin bawak mak dia berjalan, belanja mak dia macam, And at the same time I feel sad sebab teringat one of my arwah aunt. She was kinda neglected by her own husband and coz she was the 2nd wife, she didnt really get the kinda treatment a wife should. Tapi I puas hati her kids gave her all they can give and all she did not receive. Dia seolah macam diperhambakan but I am sure she is in a much much happier place right now disebabkan kesabarannya.

I can dream right? That giving up on certain things, my daughters will cherish me in the future Insya Allah...

Iiamo go self-warming feeding bottle dari Denmark ciptaan Karim Rashid

Designer Karim Rashid telah mencipta bayi botol susu yang memanaskan suhu badan tanpa menggunakan kuasa elektrik. Hebat?





Disebut Iiamo Go, produk memanaskan susu menggunakan kapsul disposable yang mengandungi air dan garam. Haba dihasilkan apabila garam terhidrasi (salt becomes re-hydrated)



Pesanan dari penciptanya Rashid:



iiamo go adalah botol self-heating yang berkemampuan untuk memberi susu pada tahap suhu badan pada bayi mereka di mana sahaja pada bila-bila masa tanpa menggunakan kuasa.




iiamo go adalah satu-satunya botol di dunia dengan kombinasi unik dari kartrij pemanas portabel, non-elektrik, pakai buang organik katrij pemanas (iiamo warm) dan teknologi pemanas dipatenkan yang terintegrasi ke dalam botol itu sendiri.



Proses ini sangat ringkas.

Tuang EBM (susu perahan ibu) atau susu formula ke dalam botol, masukkan kartrij di bahagian bawah botol dan tekan, tunggu beberapa minit dan susu tersedia untuk diminum.

Pertubuhan Kesihatan Dunia (WHO) mengesyorkan pemanasan susu dengan suhu tubuh sebelum disajikan untuk bayi dan iiamo go kini memungkin anda melakukan ini di mana-mana keluarga berada - di dalam kereta, di pejabat, ketika mengunjungi sanak-saudara, ketika sedang menikmati kenduri kahwin, di supermarket, di kafe atau di taman.

Juga, berbeza dengan sebahagian besar botol susu, botol iiamo adalah dihasilkan 100 peratus BPA-free material PP (polypropolene)

iiamo warm - kartrij pemanasan adalah sebahagian daripada misteri dan kerahsiaan di belakang kejayaan iiamo go dan terdiri daripada garam (CaCl2) dan air menghasilkan haba dengan menggunakan tenaga re-hidrasi dari garam dehidrasi.

Karim berkata daripada reka bentuk "Memberi susu adalah saat intim antara ibu bapa dan anak. Botolnya direka untuk hubungan keakraban/intim.
Walaupun produk yang sangat fungsional, botol bayi tidak perlu menjadi berfungsi semata-mata. Emosional dan estetika harus dipertimbangkan juga.

Anak-anak menyukai permukaan reflektifn bahan mengkilat berwarna-warni - saya juga - mungkin saya masih ada sifat itu dalam diri saya.

Jadi sudah sampai waktunya untuk membuat botol bayi yang terdiri dari objek yang menarik yang mempunyai animasi berwarna-warni sehingga bayi akan benar-benar akan senang dan seronok ketika diberi susu. "
