The one with... Khayr goes to Kizsports & Gym with friends!

It's lunch time now, but today I wore my new shoes to work and as expected... ada sedikit melecet at the ankle part there. Sigh. I didn't bring any other extra shoes / sandals.. so, tapao-ed food for me it is then..

In the mean time, to kill off the time by doing work.. I'm just gonna do a quick update on Khayr's activities during the recent Sunday :) I have the pictures all ready, so here goes.

During Azidi's wedding on the weekend before, Kerol and our other Gombak friends were in-charged of welcoming the guests and whatnots. So we the wifeys (ala2 the soccer players' WAGs la kononnnn.. :D eh tapi in this case Ws je sebab semua pun dah married.. haha) were seated at one table and that's when Hana brought up the idea of bringing the kiddos to this place called Kizsports & Gym. If I'm not mistaken they have 4 locations altogether -- One Utama, Bangsar Village, GE Mall, and Desa Park City. Hana has been to the one in One Utama previously.. So for a change this time around we planned to go to the one in Bangsar. And I'm glad the plan went on smoothly coz I enjoyed seeing Khayr and the other kids went all excited and happy playing there!

Khayr sorang yang tak boleh berjalan lagi.. Hehehe. Sampai2 je lepaskan dia, haaaa terus excited exploring the place :)

We went early in the morning, around 10.30 - 11 am.. So tak ramai orang.. Best! Entrance fee for the kids below 2 years old is RM9.99 for unlimited time.. :) I thought I had a good impression on the place in terms of the set up and safety.. But in terms of hygene.. Hmm, that was something that I had doubt actually but decided to just trust my instinct which is, such a place should take care of that aspect already. If only they had a check point to monitor babies' / kids' health condition, i.e. whether demam ke tak.. selsema ke tak.. you know.. But alas, I think they hold the parents responsible for that. Like, maybe they trust that reasonable parents won't bring their sick babies / kids to places like that for fear that the others might get it too. I hope I am not wrong for thinking that way.

Anyways. Here are the rest of the pictures.. Courtesy of the hot mamas that day.. hehehe.. Thanks Hana, Yannie, Lynn and Aimie! :)
Khayr's first 2 favourite spots.. Berlagak je lebihhhh.. Padahal belum stabil lagi budak nihh.. Hehe.

Exploring the 'tunnel'.. Kelihatan mama Khayr di situ turut serta joining in the fun.. :D

He's like on the loose or something.. Went to all areas available for him.. :)

And kids just love 'em colourful balls huh?

 Weeeee the sliiiiiideeeee ... ! Ni belum ada kaki lagi nih.. So masih memerlukan bantuan.. Kalau dah boleh berjalan.. Hmmm.. Mesti lagi syiok eh Khayr? :)

Showing off his skill.. Hihi.

The place separated the areas for kids below 2 years old with the one for kids above 2 years old. So Khayr and Aimie's Zuhair memang asyik stuck kat area sini lah.. At the back doing yoga or something was Hana's Aleesya.. :) Lynn's Aleeq malu2 kucing lambat sikit nak warm-up so asyik berkepit dengan Umi dia whereas Yannie's Insyirah memang dah boleh berlari and all.. So asyik laaa hilang ntah kemana main kat tempat for those above 2 years old...

We were there for about 2 hours or so.. Khayr main sampai mengantuk!!! Which was true coz after that we made move to Delicious for lunch and guess what.. Khayr slept allll the way! Hehehe.. Kerol and I get to have our meal in peace :)

Meet the parents.......

Malam tu Khayr memang tidur lena throughout the night.. Hehehe.. Tidur kepenatan kot..

To hot mamas sekalian, we should do this more often while our kids are below 2 years old..! Oppss to Yannie, sorry Insyirah dah melepasi had umur untuk dapat cheaper charge of RM9.99.. :P Anyway from reading it was said that the one in One Utama has a bigger area.. And the one in GE Mall is big enough also, and with a lesser crowd.. Hmmm.. Harus terjah ni since GE Mall is so near to my parents house... We'll see :)

All in all, we had so much fun.. And I'm so happy to see Khayr being all excited and active...

Definitely will repeat this kind of activities in time to come.

Okie dokie.. Need to get back to work while waiting for my food. Till later~!

The one with.. snapshots.

Sigh .. Blog ni lately tak ber update because of these 2 things:

2. TAKDE MOOD. Because I feel uncomfortable people judging me by what I wrote about my life, which really, it's only thiiiiiis tiny part of my entire world. But still. When I wrote about being too engrossed with work, it does not mean my life is ALL about working. And when I wrote about my little baby k, it does not mean my life is ALL about spending time with family.. you know? There has got to be more to life, why can't people get that? Hmmmm.

Anyway, I need to (and want to) keep on writing because I realise that I enjoy it so much skimming through my past entries. It reminded me of those things that took place in my life in yesteryears, that might have slipped my mind.

So here goes some snapshots of what has been happening of late:

1. Had to do outstation job for the first time and be away from baby k for 3D2N. First 2 days was ok, but on the third day, mendapat laporan daripada K besar bahawasanya k kecik telah dibiarkan merayap sensorang maka terjumpe lipas mati and mamam! (bukan kunyah2 dan telan.. more like nibbling..)Haaaaa... Menjerit lah saya dari kejauhan but K besar telah memberi assurance bahawa everything was under control. None of the lipas's body parts went missing. Tsk. So that goes into Khayr's milestone list -- kumam lipas mati at 8 months. Hehehe. Oh ye, managed to transport back 15 bottles x 4.5oz of expressed breastmilk via airplane safe and sound.. Hip hip horey! =)

2. Also, at 8 months and 2 weeks.. Khayr managed to stand on his own and made 2 little steps..

3. But, masih tiada tanda2 gigi akan keluar. Hehe... ;)

4. Khayr makan agak sikit per meal time.. the quantity is equivalent to 2 spoonful of sudu besar, approximately. Time nak kasi makan tuh, hmmm memang bersilat lah...  To worry or not to worry? Some days I feel ok about it, because he is just all fine and a one healthy active boy.. and he gains weight gradually too. But there are days I feel so worried because, yes, what else.. after comparing him with the other babies of same age lah. Huhu. Dah try macam2 combo dah. And now I can see that he's more into potato-based dish instead of rice-based. So I'm exploring more towards that option.

5. Last week I had great plans all tabled down before me, awaiting to be executed. BUT. Buttttt... unfortunately with the battle I had to fight with, things did not go so well. Wah, battle lah sangat... Hehehe.. (Skarang boleh la gelak2, cuba kalau last week.. Huhu.. Seriously I thought it was end of the world already..)... Anyway, I had this thing called 'breast abscess'..  Isk. What a scary experience.. :( This thing apparently is one of the challenges a breastfeeding mom could have. Long story short, my case had to be referred to the breast surgeon in PMC Bangsar, and thank god, it was still at the early stage.. So no incision or surgery required.. LEGA + SYUKUR SANGAT2!! Coz on the day before my appointment with the surgeon, I did some search and found a lot of articles + blogs about it.. I got so scared thinking about the worst case scenario.. Siap nangis2 tak boleh tidur.. Huhu. But anyway, I was given a 2 1/2 days MC and feeling much better now.. Still on antibiotics + painkiller, but yep, recovering. My follow-up check up this morning confirmed that. And the most important thing, now that Khayr is already 8 months and 3 weeks, I am proud to say that he is still exclusively on breastmilk in addition to his solids.. :)

6. Nevertheless. Though things did not go as planned and that I was still on pain now and then, things still took place in ways better than I could have imagined. First, on the days I was on MC (of which I have planned for annual leaves actually), Kerol and I managed to sort our housing loan.. (finally..) wee hoo! And next, Kerol's birthday on 21 October 2010. We sent Khayr to my mom's house as agreed, he was sent there for an overnight for 2 reasons -- (1) both Kerol and I thought we wanted to have some cuti2 Kuala Lumpur sempena Kerol's birthday *wink2* and (2) my sister Liana was going back to Jakarta already, so she wanted to spend the night with Khayr. Kerol and I, we did not manage to have our cuti2 KL because of reason number (5) above.. but still.. we had great time being alone together reminiscing our days as a couple... ;)

First we went to watch this movie.. it was AWESOME! I so totally can relate myself to the storyline, i.e. adapting life once a baby enters into life. The joy and excitement of having a baby. The scary thought as to whether will Kerol and I be able to be a good parents or not. The those changing-diapers-moment and feeding-solids-moment and the who's-turn-to-do-what moment. and a lot more. Sobs. Very touching I tell you this movie! It gives me a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Huhu.

Plus points: Josh Duhamel is oh-so-yummy and Katherine Heigl is so witty and funny as always and little Sophie (which was played by a triplet btw) is are so brilliant! =)

And then came the celebration dinner :)

Went to the Shang's Lemon Garden cafe using a colleague's Privilege membership card, 50% off the total bill yaw! :) Good food and good time spent together talking about future and whatnots.. ;)

Alritey. That's all I have for now sebab dah nak balik. Nak update on Khayr's activities on the weekend that set him happy and all excited, hence slept throughout the nite sebab kepenatan! Hehehe. On Saturday we brought him to Maya's Barney birthday party and on Sunday we brought him to Kizsports & Gym in Bangsar. But that has got to wait for now :)

Till next time comes!

The one with.. snippets.

Since I got back from my outstation trip, life has been pretty hectic for me I didn’t have the time to update my blog huhu. Anyway, I’ll give you snippets of what has been going on with me for the past one week by re-posting my facebook status:

5 October 2010
Khayr turns 8 months old today! But he’s still down with fever. Get well soon please cayang
Between work and family. Choosing one in terms of priority will still make you feel guilty towards the other. Choosing both is impossible. The kind of thing working mother has to bear huh.
6 October 2010

People take emergency leave not for nothing. Why can’t people understand? Why the constant pressure? *depressed*

7 October 2010
Saturday night – all weak due to fever.  Monyok and melepek.  So heart-breaking :(

Tuesday night – alive and kicking. Temperature more stabil and normal. So heart-relieving :)
After baik demam, tiba2 harini badan Khayr naik bintik2 merah. Doctor cakap maybe measles. Or viral fever. Dia suruh monitor for the next 2 days see whether the bintik2 spreading out or not. Errkk.
There. Wishing that Khayr is gonna be back to be in a pink of health. And wishing that I get to enjoy the weekend with my 2 K’s, unlike the unpleasant one we had last week.

Till later~*
