Things for Mother & Baby

leave a comment »

* This is a scheduled post *

After giving birth to my 1st kid, I prepared this list, to remind me to be smarter in packing my hospital bag, as well as a guide for buying new things for the new baby.
Things for Mother & Baby

Before having the list, I was a bit ignorant, thus I ended up over-packing my hospital bag, bringing a lot of unnecessary stuff (and not used also), which resulted to a heavy bag. Did regret it then… that’s what prompted me to prepare the list… And at least it has been a good guideline for me and my colleagues…

I have to forewarn though… the list is meant for Malaysian private hospitals only (I’ve only tried giving birth in Malaysia), and more concentrated on SJMC only (coz that’s where I gave birth). You are welcomed to download the list, and add on other things yourself.

You can also refer to the following links for more information, especially on what to pack into your hospital bag:

What Keywords make you #1 in Google ?

with 4 comments

Have you ever wondered what kind of keywords will make your site #1 in Google ? When I first read Lorelle’s post about this, it got me curious too! The challenge was not to use your name / blog name as the search criteria… instead you’re supposed to find other keywords to see which ones will make your site #1 in Google.

I’ve tried the following which made my site #1 in Google:

  • stressed out mother of 2 (this might not really be valid, since it is partially my blog’s name)
  • sun tech day klcc
  • ashley and hayley

Have a try and find yours!

Wireless router down!

leave a comment »

* Sigh * Wireless router suddenly cannot use… Happened few days back… after asking around hubby’s parents, found out that in the afternoon, there was lightning… so MIL quickly off the switch and pull out the plug… so why the wireless router still got ‘burned’ ? Very de curious, but it won’t help me go on the net… so the next obvious thing was to buy a new one lar…

Thus just now went to Digital Mall (hubby only… we all hung around at Jaya supermarket) to get a new wireless router… at least now I’m back and able to download kits for the scrapbook (but have yet to think of what to scrap, coz no new pix). Oh yeah, have been wanting to buy Star Bucks Java Chip Frappucinno to drink quite long (or rather have been longing for it few weeks)… just got it… hehe 🙂 Yes, it’s still around, just that they don’t have any promotion for it… Lucky me… *slurp* yummy!!!

Letting the steam of my system

leave a comment »

The entire week, I’ve been in and out of meetings only… basically, I hardly get to warm my seat, before going to the next meeting. Just because of the st*p*d proposal I’ve got to prepare… Colleagues whom know me well would know that I actually totally hate doing proposal… but no choice, got to do it due to my position (and no other reasons!) And it is totally the truth, even mentioned it to my boss (but I just totally got no choice)

Anyway, all my effort would not be shown much, as I’ve not put in much… hehe 🙂 Instead, I do want to have a part in the team’s new framework … Presenting the “Sphere” …

* Wanted to ‘hentam’ people in this post, but after a while, seems to have cooled down, thus nothing bad is mentioned now *

Pie’s first birthday party

leave a comment »

I got messaged by an ex-college mate (SY), whom I’ve not seen since I left college (which is over 10+ years ago). It was a pleasant surprise… She informed me of another ex-college mate’s (D) 1 year old daughter’s birthday party, which will be held in 2 days time. It was another surprise… but as I’ve not seen this college mate for about a year (the last time I saw the couple was during the birth of their daughter), so I agreed to attend the party.

Due to that, I had to get a present the next day and the only time I had is during lunch break. So, got friend’s daughter a present and went home to wrap (luckily I bought extra wrapping paper during Pie’s birthday).

Came dinner time and it was raining heavily. But since I’ve agreed to go, I know I won’t back out (no way jose). During the journey there (the dinner was held at a restaurant in Puchong), I was thinking whether it was actually a joke or not, as D didn’t tell me a single thing about the party. On the other hand, it’s no gain to SY at all. The entire journey was full of that thoughts… and esp. whether the restaurant exists or not as well.

When we reached Puchong, and turned into one of the mentioned junction, the restaurant was right in front of us… So the restaurant exists (my thoughts confirmed). Next was there are a lot of people (and some with kids) going into the restaurant and what more, going up to the 2nd floor. There should be a party going on…

When we reached the restaurant’s 2nd floor, I kind of expected to see balloons and banners… evidence saying there’s a party going on. Instead, we were met with normal tables and chairs and people sitting, like having family dinner kind. I was really into a shock… thinking that maybe SY is really was playing a joke on me…

Then D saw us and came to the door, ushering us in. Then his wife (L) also came out… I did hesitated, as I wasn’t too sure if I was actually butting into people’s family dinner (kind of expected him to be surprised to see me and ask what was I doing there). Instead, both of them were like… come come… you are one of the first few to arrive…

Next shock was the party itself. As mentioned, it wasn’t like the normal kind… instead, we were met with round tables and gas stove… My thought was… we are going to have steamboat ? But then my friend said that it’s seafood… I was like ???

OK, up till now, I’ve not mentioned the restaurant’s name. I would say that this post is for me to talk about my friend’s party, as well as to promote the restaurant a bit… What to do ? My friend got share in the restaurant and on top of it, the couple are my good friends. The restaurant’s name is Ria Seaview Seafood Restaurant, as Puchong (Jaya ?). It’s the area opp. IOI Mall. Full address, need to ask my friend first. I only got directions to go there.

So, comes back to the dinner. As mentioned it’s seafood, thus we were served Steamed Lala with Sliced Ginger, Brocolli, Butter Prawns, Lotus Root with Celery, Taufoo, Assam Fish & Crab (it’s something like Fish Head Mee Hoon, minus the Mee Hoon inside and it’s with Crab instead). Food was quite good, esp. the Assam Fish, Butter Prawns and Crab… the seafood was quite fresh… No idea about the price though… my friend ‘belanja’ wan mar…

We ended the party with the birthday cake. It was a dog-shaped ice cream cake. Overall, I would say Pie enjoyed the party… she didn’t eat much (but b4 hand she ate a lot of peanuts and vege and taufoo). But, where on earth would she give the birthday cake a miss, esp. when it’s an ice cream cake ? Didn’t see much of the birthday girl, Kei Kei, but Pie got to play with Annabel, Shireen & Alvin’s daughter.

So promotion done, I wonder if we were to go there and eat, there would be some discounts for us ??? Hehe… must ask my friend first.

Night time lullabies

leave a comment »

It’s a norm for me to sing night time lullabies for both babies (1 kid & 1 baby) now. I’ve restricted it to 4 lullabies only (else the list can go on and on all day long… just like the Energizer battery).

The 4 lullabies consists of 2 english and 2 chinese (from my baby days… imagine that long)… They are Rock-A-Bye-Baby, Lullaby (which I call Goodnight song, coz the lyrics are customized), ‘Yau-Yau-Yau’ (don’t know what is the actual name of the song) and ‘Kan Nan Su’.

My Mum is having a hard time looking for the ‘Kan Nan Su’ song and lyrics. Anyone knows where to find the song ?

Overbooked!!!

leave a comment »

I have a desk calendar on my table and also an online calendar. But then, it’s still not effective, as I have overbooked my own schedule for the next 2 days! Did I not imagine that I’ve agreed to review my trainees here and later on attend meetings there! My goodness! Now I’m in a mess!!!

I can’t let my trainees down, neither can I afford to miss those meetings. *sigh* If only I have a twin, then I’ll be able to attend one session and my twin attend the other one.

I’ve seriously got to manage my time for efficiently…
