I'm so jealous reading other mommies blogs who are able to fully breastfeed their babies even up until 2 years old. When I first had Nia, I was trying so hard to make sure she is fully breastfed. Sadly, my milk supply was not as much as I want it to be. Regardless how hard I try, all kind of food I ate, sama jugak.

So, azam for my next baby, is to try even harder to fully breastfeed him/her. Meaning, during pregnancy, I have to start taking milk and so on. Any ideas how to make sure my milk supply byk nanti?

I was upset last Sunday.

Bukan pasal ape pon, it was because I had to repeat myself countless times over the same thing for the whole weekend, both Saturday & Sunday.
Question asked was, "Eh!How come you're alone with Nia je? Where's Fahmi?".
Obviously he was not around last weekend.
Reason being was, we had so many invites and at the same time we want to try and please everyone.
So over the 2 days, I was like a tape-recorder and blaber out the same thing over and over again explaining to oh so many people, at the weddings, the tahlil and on Facebook! Urgh!

Why we had to split resources?

Point 1: Fahmi needs to go back to Batu Pahat to visit my MIL who had just undergone an operation
Point 2: I had to accompany my mom to a wedding on Friday night at Dewan Felda Perdana
Point 3: Nia has missed 2 weeks of classes in a row, so we're trying not to miss anymore (Sunday Mrorning)
Point 4: We planned for a tahlil arwah at home with my brothers & sisters on Saturday Night
Point 5: I have Alif's wedding that we both has RSVP-ed to attend on Sunday

On top of that, our schedule is packed for the next few weeks:
Next week: Alif's garden reception at Titiwangsa
Next Next week: Back to KT for 2 weddings + holiday @ Perhentian
Next Next Next week: Might be in Kelantan with the family (continution from the above)
Next Next Next Next week: Nurul's wedding reception at Merak Kayangan

We will only have a free weekend on 26/27 June (sigh)

So, basically we really have to split resources in order to keep everyone happy. Between the two of us, we have no issues in splitting resources. But the rest, Oh so nosy snoooozy people~! I cannot tahan!~ Urgh~

Pan Roast Strip Loin With Tarragon Onion Butter - Asian Food Channel Recipes

Pan Roast Strip Loin With Tarragon Onion Butter - Asian Food Channel Recipes


Is there any where that I can purchase fresh tarragon?

Reason why I'm asking is I'm planning to cook steak for Mr Husband.

Watching AFC Channel has always inspires me to cook - and 2 days ago - while watching, and wishing that I can cook like all those celebrity chefs, my mom actually said, before attempting to make all those fancy dishes, why not start by trying to prepare the finest butter steak.
Makanya, taking that as a challenge, I googled and found a very simple recipe and the outcome looks quite yummilicious.

Since we won't be around this weekend to try this out, am planning to test my culinary skills as soon as we're back from Penang.

Hmmm...looks like I have to go and hunt for the spices at Cold Storage or Village Grover this coming Monday.

Wish me luck!

Tarragon is one of the four
fines herbes of French cooking, and particularly suitable for chicken, lasagna, fish and egg dishes.

A Big Hope

I am officially panicking.

You know how much I've been rambling and complaining about the Single Framework exercise that Kerang is currently doing to us.
All this while I wasn't that particular as I've always thought that it is still a long way to go.
But now that the time will come this October - I must say that my panic button has been triggered - officially.
I seriously need to start looking for jobs.
What Single Framework will mean to me is - PAYCUT - A whole lot of paycut - more or less around MYR2000/monthly.
No doubt a little bit of compensation is given to us in the beginning - but then again, how long can that money lasts?
So, Dear God, if you are listening to me, please please please, open some doors for me.
I really need this going along.
Else, we will have to start tightening our monthly 'belts'


opsss!!...before i forget...

For the first time...Nia looked at me last night and shouted "Meeeemmmmy!!!"
Well...boleh laa...it sounded like Mommy too....only with a Mat-Salleh accent!!!

Love you much munchkin!~

Babah Vs Nia

There were times when Mr Husband had to help out in watching over Nia while I do my chores. Instead this is what I found when I came in the TV Room to check on them.


In a recent survey, it was made known to me that somehow employees of Kerang no longer has pride in working with the company....this however varies according to the location of where the employees are currently residing....those who are located in the European region apparently doesn't take any pride to be attached to Kerang at all....on the contrary, the situation seems to be the exact opposite especially for people who are based in the Phillipines - who seems to love Kerang very much...
So my question now is, am I proud to be associated as a Kerang employee?
I was - when I first got this job 4 years ago....but like people say, time change, people change and feelings can definitely change too...since Kerang has some what or rather 'betrayed' my love towards him, I no longer bore any soft emotional feelings for the company...its very much platonic now - purely monetary...and that's why people say, the GenX Babies only work for the $$$ - nothing more and nothing less - and I am definitely one of those....

I'm a Junkie

I somehow think that I am turning into a gadget junkie.. I have previously nagged and begged for a iPod Touch, which I now own for the size of 32GB...and its awesome....I love the touch and feel of it and most of all - I enjoy all the applications very much...somehow it is much more user-friendly compared to the games that I see Mr Husband in playing on his PS3 - sgt complicated!

Anyhow, next on my list would be a new mobile set...This is not a priority but more of a new-to-have wishlist...my current set likes to 'kill' itself so many times in a week - for over no reason that I can think of...not sure what is the problem but it likes to over-heat itself and during the night sure the battery will flat out....this is not including the times that it likes to simply stuck and hang and not allowing me to anwer any calls...tak faham la ape masalah dia...the only reason I could think of is perhaps Nia slalu lock/unlock the phone countless times in a few seconds...ehehe...maybe sebab tu dia penat...so, the next aim would of course be the upcoming iPhone 4G... *drool*drool*drool*....

next wishlist, a Wii-Fit...

bestnye kalau ade ni....before marriage I used to hit the gym a few times in a week...BodyCombat, BodyStep and RPM classes were my favourites....dulu stamina tip-top....can even jungle-trek kat FRIM tak rasa penat at all....but if I were to go now, I'm sure after 15 minutes kaki dah nak cramp....*sigh*...so in order to menyahut seruan kerajaan to live healthily, again, I would like to start pumping....since I can't bear leaving the house without taking my Semek along - I might as well get something that is fun (so that I also spend time with My Hubby) and of course will help me to burn all those calories on my tummy and urghhh so flabby thighs....so Wii-Fit - you are definitely next on my list....^_^
