Little Monster Playtime

Last week Adam, Aiman, Alana ada Little Monster Playtime dengan cousins. Since Halloween pun just around the corner, so senangla dapat costume and props hehe.


Here my Monster Pumpkin. Sebulat labu manis rupa dia hehe. Redho je Alana dengan baju labu tu. 🤣



And here the rest of us. Mummy jadi Hantu Bibik. See? I only need that kain lampin and place it on my shoulder terus dah jadi rupa bibik haha. 


Maktok2 join sekali sebab layankan cucu. We have Hantu Pokok there, can you spot one? Hehe.

Aiman couldn't be bother with this monster play, dia lebih focus kepada KFC atas meja tu. Konsepnya makan first, play later. 



Lepas tu kita orang main Treasure Hunt. Maybe more of Veggies Fruits Hunt. Kena cari Pumpkins, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Dragon Fruits and few others around the house. Homegrown buah and sayur gitu, memang dekat pokok. Bagus, dah macam playschool pulak. 


Ni cuti sekolah dah dekat. Mummy dah pening nak arrange activities for them. Sebulan lebih cuti huuuu, takkan siang malam nak bagi Xbox je. 🤣 Kalau korang ada activity nak suggest, mohon la letak dekat comment. Yang ada dalam list now Xbox, swimming, slime. Haha baru 3. Cuti sekolah punya lama. Adam Aiman ni kalau takde activity, dia punya bising boring tu nanti jenuh dengar.


Alana Admitted to Pantai Hospital Bangsar

RSV leads to Pneumonia.

It started with normal batuk, tak ada demam and later stuffy nose. So kami pi je klinik biasa. 2 clinics. Both clinics cakap, "biasa je ni takde apa". Fine. One week still tak ada improvement, bunyi phlegm dah makin sakan.

Then she started to develop fever, mula2 mild fever 37.5 and later on 38-38.5. Eh takleh jadi ni. Hingus pun dah sikit2 greenish.

To Pantai Hospital we went. Eh tak. Dome breakfast dulu lepas tu Mothercare sale haha demi sleepsuits 40% + 10% katanyaaa. 😂



Bila paed dia check, dia kata, "I'm not going to let her go this time. Bunyi teruk!". Sebab Alana sebelum ni 2 kali nak pernah kena tahan tapi Mummy biasalah cuba membuat alasan untuk take ubat orally at home. 😆 This time tak lepas heheh.

So bermula lah edisi percutian di Pantai. Dengan pemandangan nothing of beach but Menara TM tempat kerja lama Mummy. 🤣🤣



Still here in PHKL but progressing well. Ubat all taken orally, antibiotic satu makan and satu lagi jab DAILY. Hari-hari kena cucuk drumstick. Huh, tak kelakar betul. 😭 I tanya doctor kenapa tak set iv line, dia kata sebab baby and susah nak jaga and sebab dia chubby haha. Nasib baik labu manis ni makan ubat walaupun ada struggle dia.

Remember I cerita masa pregnant, I letak wallpaper Syrian Olympic swimmer Yusra Mardini? Because I want my daughter to be just as strong as Yusra Mardini? I think she is. Everyday ada 4 ubat orally, nasal spray, neb (ok ni tak sakit, dia suka je), physio, SUCTION, antibiotic jab, yet she still so chirpy like nothing happen. Isk. Kita yang adults ni, kalau sakit kepala sikit pun rasa nak lempang orang dah. 



I'm not going to elaborate further on the reasons why, I think everyone knows but please keep your hands clean dengan small baby. Smoker kalau dekat baby, even dah basuh tangan pun, particles asap rokok tetap ada di baju. Parents with school-age kids, kalau anak batuk teruk jangan la bagi anak pergi sekolah. Lagi-lagi kalau anak tu tak vaccine. Eh. Eh. 🙄 

Aiman started the batuk episode dulu. Vaccine schedule dia complete tapi tu la, terjebak juga lalu handover dekat Alana Si Labu Manis. 

Alana is due for her Pneumococcal jab this week sepatutnya, tapi dah kena serang dulu before amik additional vaccine. But maybe dia breastfed baby, so progresss nak sembuh tu cepat sikit.

Lagi satu nak pesan, young/first time parents terutamanya, AMIK INSURANCE. Selalu first timer ni, barang baby kebabom, insurance takmo amik. Jangan begitu ok. Walaupun kerja company cover, amik je. Alana kami amik one month before dia lahir, so bila lahir je terus boleh jalan "grace period" tu. Rasanya ni, bil lagi tinggi dari amount premium yang baru 6-7 bulan kami bayar. Worth ke tak worth tu? (Tak jual insurance, cuma pesanan khidmat masyarakat).

Sekianlah. Mummy is bored. And. Kenapa Najib tak buat rokok harga RM50 sekotak? Asyik naik harga minyak buat apa. Isk. (Jangan dia reply "Amboi" pulak kang hahahhaah).


April Baby Coming Soon!

Lamanya tak update blog. Cerita memang macam-macam ada dalam kepala, tapi masa sangatlah limited. Selalunya tak ada masa nak sort photos (resize and filter) hehe, sebab macam tak syok kalau tulis entry without supporting photos.

Tapi hari ni ada check-up dengan doctor, 36 weeks. New baby coming soon. Rasanya macam tak cerita sangat about pregnancy number 4 ni (doctor counted as #4 sebab #3 miscarriage), eh ke memang tak pernah cerita? Kesian baby ni. :P Unlike Abang Adam, almost every day (if possible) nak tulis pregnancy journey tu hehe, biasalah first timer, semua nak record. Aiman 2nd child, record jugak sikit-sikit, yang ni langsung record tidak dapat dikesan.

Anyway, after 7 years, this round rasa macam first time jugak. Macam-macam benda rasa blur. The early stages lagilah rasa takut tu macam-macam, sebab first trimester kan fragile. Nak makan, nak buat kerja semua hati-hati, tapi bila masuk 2nd trimester haha terus meligat sakan. Moving to 3rd trimester, merasa la jugak minum air gas hehehe, tak tahan la oihhh F&N Strawberry dengan ice penuh, sedapnyaaa.

First two pregnancies dulu, tak ada langsung morning sickness. This one, first trimester ada sikit-sikit, and paling tak boleh kalau perut kosong. Foods tu memang kena sedia ada. The moment rasa macam lapar or perut kosong, memang terus nak muntah jadi dia. Different pregnancy journey different story gitu. I was crazy lazy in the beginning; malas masak, malas kemas rumah, malas lipat baju, malas kerja, malas practically everything hehe.

Dah 25th weeks baru kehidupan back on track, in fact macam terlajak rajin towards the end ni. These last few weeks, baking memang back to back, in between uruskan Adam Aiman sekolah, kadang-kadang pergi tengok dia orang waktu rehat, then manage Gloria Jean's (at KPJ Selangor, Shah Alam, jemputlah datang hihi) and balik malam selalunya uruskan hal-hal rumah lagi. Don't know where the energy came from, tapi memang lain macam kerajinan dia.


Semalam, I was busy the whole day doing laundry (6 loads washer+dryer) plus 2 rounds hand-wash baju baby. And lepas tu settle lipat, kemas, sangkut and all. Sempat jugak lari pergi cafe dekat Shah Alam, kemas master bedroom, before finally 'kong' at 1am haha. Tidur awal pun bukan lena sekarang, macam insomnia pun ada kadang-kadang. Pusing sana, pusing sini, tinggikan bantal semua serba tak kena, last sekali bangun tengah malam vacuum rumah. 

Nanti confinement dekat rumah my mom, so ada few things dekat our house kena settle dulu. Laundry basket kena empty, mountains of bajus nak kena fold and sangkut, Mat Kown's shirts nak kena iron dulu banyak-banyak (at least for two weeks usage), dapur kena lap berkilat, lantai nak mop and paling penting toilet nak kena cuci bersih dulu. Then ok, baru tenang to leave the house. Sebab balik nanti lepas pantang kan dah ada baby, don't know what the routine will be like, so baiklah settle rumah cantik-cantik dulu.


This round pun agak independent dah berbanding zaman Adam & Aiman dulu. Dah tak harap Kown teman serba serbi. Maybe umur pun dah berapa, anak-anak dah besar, Kown pun kerja banyak and busy, and since I am very mobile, lebih senang buat sendiri. Checkup pun banyak pergi sendiri je. Sebab lama sangat nak tunggu, bawak Kown pun buang masa dia je, baik biar je dia kerja haha. At least dia kerja boleh jugak duit masuk, satgi yang nak mintak serba macam sisthurrrr jugak :P

Still driving at 36 weeks, walaupun jarak dari stereng tu agak jauh dah, sebab perut very pointy this time. Thank you Allah for my height, at least masih boleh nampak jalan raya walaupun duduk jauh sikit dari stereng kereta hehe. Hari tu I jatuh, eh tak hari tu sangatlah, last few days. Jatuh dekat parking, sebab masa tu baru lepas hujan, so the parking area was wet. Luckily time tu both hands kiri kanan pegang Adam Aiman, so jatuh tu tak la terduduk sangat. Tak panic nak pergi clinic pun masa tu sebab masa 24 weeks dulu pun jatuh jugak haha. Tapi doctor kata wait for 24 hours, monitor baby movement, or severe pain or ada bleeding ke apa. Since baby gerak ok, active as usual, I relax je.


Sekali bila bagitau Kown kita jatuh, dia freak out lah, lalu chase me to go to hospital. He was not around that time, tu la kot dia yang over panicked padahal I duk kat rumah tengah chillex makan cupcakes Wondermilk (my staple foods this pregnancy, apa la nak jadi ni). So I left my two kids dekat rumah my parents, lalu drive pergi emergency Pantai Bangsar. Sampai dekat labor room (close to 11pm), nurse tanya, "husband mana? mak ke?" I jawab takde, I drive je datang ni hah. Terjojol mata dia tengok Shilashower haha. Told them my husband outstation, mak I jaga my kids, and I am completely fine to drive, so no need to wheel me. Sebab dia paksa suruh duduk atas wheelchair and I refused. :P Masuklah labor room kejap for monitoring, baby heartbeat ok, actively moving walaupun dah midnight and no contractions, so boleh balik. Told them, jangan surprise kalau nak bersalin pun I drive sendiri pergi hospital haha (ok joking, don't take this seriously). Eh tapi kalau takleh fikir time tu mana tau, tiba-tiba waterbag pop dekat Bangsar Village ke apa ha gituuu. 

Preparation barang baby this time agak nak pengsan, macam anak first jugak gaya dia. Sebab semua barang tak ada. Only left with stroller and breastpump je. Itu punnnn, service balik and tukar parts Freestyle, dekat 700-800rm. Boleh beli Swing kot. Service dah RM75, then beli charger, tukar connectors parts, tubing and corong tu, so melayanglah RM tu. Itu pun nanti tengok later baru beli battery baru, sebab tu pun ala-ala nak kong jugak, tapi battery Freestyle harga 400+ ahhaahaha nangis. So tak beli. Guna plug point je la dulu, after all I tak kerja office dah macam dulu, so harap ok lah.



Akhir kata, doakan for a smooth delivery and baby ni keluar 14 ke 15 April haha so next year I boleh buat kek 4 tingkat. :P And harap normal delivery la hendaknya, sebab this time dah tak ada PM Care untuk berkhidmat macam zaman kerja TM dulu heehhe, sekarang PM Kown je hadoooo. Jangan botak terus suami sis sudeh lerrr.



Perth Day 1 - Caversham Wildlife Park

First activity kami dekat Perth ialah melawat Caversham Wildlife Park. Sebab trip ada kanak-kanak, so kena beli jiwa dia orang dulu haha. Yang shopping and merayau dalam CBD tu kita push towards the end, awal-awal ni semua activity yang sesuai untuk kids.



Caversham Wildlife Park is more than just a zoo. But in comparison to Phillip Island Wildlife Park, of course PIWP lagi best, but fret not, once you arrived at the Whiteman Park entrance, the scenery will leave you in awe! The route towards the park was very scenic, lots of native trees and plants and we even spotted few wild kangaroos from afar. 30 minutes drive from the city, guna Google Maps Inshaallah sampai hehe. Plenty free parking around the park, don't worry :)




Weather was hot, like crazy hot, maybe akan lebih enjoy the place if weather a bit breezy. TIPS: Don't forget to apply sunscreen and bring along a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Plenty of shady spots to sit under if needed, but still panaih rasa dia :P




Zoo entry fee is reasonable (Latest - Adult: AUD28 and Child: AUD12.50), good variety of native Australian animals, knowledgeable zoo keepers (helpful too; most of them rajin tolong take photos), farm show was amusing (please check on sessions timing to avoid disappointment), great park layout and directions around the park quite clear (Inshallah tak sesat hehe).  





Two famous attractions are Wombat & Friends enclosure (meet the super fat wombat, interact with snake) and Kangaroo enclosure; where you can touch, interact and feed the kangaroos (selfie also cannn). However, I rasa the Kangaroos look a little lazy or maybe overfed as the food are freely available. As for Koala, we can only see but not allowed to hug or cuddle, slightly stroke their fur boleh lah. Anyhow, just don't forget to take the mandatory selfie with Koala (walaupun they barely open their eyes, quite sleepy when we went in) hehe.










There's a small cafe there (near the entrance) but not sure on Halal status tho (said to be Halal, boleh check on website kot). Clean washrooms and ada souvenir shop too, just in case nak cari seketul dua barang kenangan. Overall, the place is well kept and maintained, even the animals are sufficiently fed too. The park is definitely as good as most reviews mentioned, fun for both adults and kids. 




For more info, visit the website if you are planning your trip here . :) Caversham Wildlife Park.

After spending the earlier part of the day here, then kita keluar picnic lunch and solat at one of the playgrounds around the park (still within Whiteman area)




TIPS: Bring your own food, we even angkut the rice cooker haha and utilize the excellent picnic facilities. We then had a quick tour to the Motor Museum (perfect for boys) and Train station. Ada waterpark jugak, unfortunately we were running out of time, sebab nak pergi Margaret River pulak.
