An Update & Decision Making


Hmmm… I wonder what’s poppin’ up in your mind when you saw an update from my blog today?? The subject sound serious and scary too huh?? Heheheh… You guys must be expecting to hear good news from me huh?! *grin*

Well, I do hope that I can share the good news with you all by now. But, I guess you guys still have to wait lah!!

Went to Hospital this morning. Uppsss… you guys should read it as yesterday morning as I did the typing of my post at nite.

Doctor said that my water bag’s level is still ok. Baby is currently weighting at 2.85kg. Not bad huh for a fussy eater like me??! As per Kadus_Mama’s comment on one of my entry… yeah… I have to wait another week??!! *sigh* *roll eyes* I will have to admit to the hospital on the 29/10 if I still not delivered within these days. Oo’ohhh… That’s the very last thing I wanted to do and avoid if possible!!

I guess I got the wronged instinct then! Tot that I would be giving birth earlier than my EDD. Sekalinya, post due pulak!! Aisehhhh…

The worst part is Doctor only issue 1 day MC for me which is for today (yesterday). Gheezzz… I actually asked for 1 week MC but Doctor refused. What’s wrong with that? So, I’m considering whether I should go to the office this week?? Of coz not tomorrow (today) coz’ I’ll be staying at home tomorrow (today)! Thinking ‘bout the unpaid leaves make me pening!! It would be at least 5 days of unpaid leaves!! *faint*

But, don’t you think it’s weird to return to the office when you are actually on leaves?! And to be exact, it’s a maternity leaves??! Weird + funny lah!! Plus, I just can’t imagine if only my water bag burst when I’m in office!! Ohh… dear!! Malunya!! *blush* I would surely create a history!!! Goshh… I definitely do not want to take the risk ok! Perhaps, I’ll opt for an advance of my maternity leaves! I know it would be easy for me to say it at the present as I don’t see my baby yet! Wait till baby is around, then only I realize how heavy hearted it is to be apart with a lil’ baby! *teary eyes*

One of my friends is of the opinion that I should just go to work instead… Moving and exercising might expedite the labouring process. Yeah… I know that! But… Seeeee… always a ‘but’!! She also added that it is not like as showed in the movie where you’ll be labouring easily without experiencing any early signage such as vaginal pain, back pain, waist pain, vaginal discharge, etc.

However, hubby and aunt advised that I should just stay at home…

Woww… tough decision again… What you say???

p/s: Posted by Hubby on behalf of me! Thanks Dear…

My Last Posting...

Well, today is my last working day before I start on leaves tomorrow. Meaning to say, this would be my last entry as well before I ‘reactivate’ myself again. Gheezz… gonna miss my workstation, pc, colleagues, net surfing and blog hoping soooo verrrry mucccch!! *teary eyes*

Of coz’ I’ll try my best to persuade hubby to help me in updating my blog on my behalf. Already did the step by step instructions guide for him thou, with the illustrations some more!! It would be peanuts then!! Don’t think he can say NO this round… :lol:

Have already cleared everything in my hand. Handed over stuff to other colleague. Emailed whatever softcopies of files to my boss for his safekeeping. Yup… 100% ready for my long leaves!! *grin* I don’t actually mind if they are going to call me asking this and that during my confinement which I pretty much sure that they will at their very best try to avoid doing so.

Guys… pray for me & baby and wish me luck ok… Will update you soon... *wink-wink*

Life Goes On

It’s 13th and I’m still not due yet!!! Everyone in the office keeps on repeating the same questions whenever they bumped into me… in the toilet, pantry, passing by…
* You still around?
* Belum meletup lagik??
* When is your due date?
* When are you going to start on leave?

And I have to answer and answer again… almost everyday except weekend of coz!! Geezz…
Berat mata memandang, berat lagik bahu memikul bah!!

Received call from the Hospital this morning. An Antenatal class will be conducted on this Wednesday. I’ve called to enquire ‘bout it earlier (before Puasa). Unfortunately, there were no one signed up to attend the class and of coz they won’t conduct the class if there are only 1 or 2 participants. Tot I would never have the chance to attend the class… By attending the class, I guess I will be more mentally and physically prepared, confident and have a rough idea to face the laboring process specially the breathing part!! *sweating* However, I will have to attend the class all by myself as hubby is at his busy mode at office this week… *sigh*

Alamak… just recalled that I have a check-up appointment at the Klinik Ibu Mengandung on the same day. I won’t be able to make it then. Better to attend the class to gain some knowledge, besides I will have another check-up at the Hospital on Friday. *sigh*

Oya… there will be a Sabah Ultimate Home and Property Exhibition which is organized by SHAREDA (Sabah Housing and Real Estate Developers Association) at 1 Borneo, KK from 16/10 to 19/10. I’ll definitely be there IF I am at KK. Am currently looking and planning to purchase house in KK before going back to KK PERMANENTLY (<--- yeah! You read it correctly!)! Woww… IT IS indeed a big decision in my life!

Been stuck here in KL for almost 10 years (inclusive the 3 yrs student life)!! I think it’s time to consider starting a new life in KK. Nda jugak kaya2 keja di KL ni!!
Hujan emas di negeri orang, hujan batu di negeri sendiri, lagi bagus di negeri sendiri!! Ahakss… Friends and relatives keep on asking me the same questions everytime I went back to KK…

*When are you coming back?
*Nda mau balik Sabah sudah ka?
*Mau jadi urang KL sdh ka?

If only I go back to Sabah right after I finished my study, wonder how my life would be now! It sounds negative pulak kan?! Nope, I don’t mean staying in Sabah is bad but of coz it would be different la bah kan… Things might not be as what it is now… Perhaps I won’t married my hubby, I won’t convert, I won’t… mm.. I don’t know what will happen… But, one thing for sure… LIFE GOES ON and there is nothing to regret about… It is our destiny…

Anyway, for those who are going to the Exhibition this weekend, tulung lah tingu2 and share any collectible properties info for me ok… *wink-wink*

*Sleepy Mode* (Updated)

*Yawn* Totally sleepy like hell now! As if the eyes been attack by million of stones!! *yawn* Another 3 hours to 6pm!! *yawn* Gheezzz…

Our Contract Department has invited me for a makan-makan during lunch just now, in conjunction with Hari Raya la ba kunun ni. It’s a port luck actually, where everyone will have to bring their own dish. So, I did bring some kuih raya.

Since it’s a Raya celebration, ketupat and rendang sure will be the compulsory dish lah kan. We also have nasi pulut, curry, fried mihun, fried rice, fruit (mango), kuih seri muka and of coz the kuih raya.

The ketupat, rendang, nasi pulut and curry are superb!!! Yummy!! But, 3 attempts were enuff to make me full already. 3 and not 2 attempts ok!! By the way, the ketupats are not instant one ok. My colleague spent 8 hours to steam them!! *roll eyes*

They even managed to snap few pix during the makan-makan. Will upload later lah yaa… Wait for my updated version k…

Me added nasi pulut for the 3rd round! Can't resist the curry bah!

From left : Myza, Madam (Datuk's sis), me and Mrs. So

Short post for today as brain not ‘working’ properly lah! Tummy is too full too generate idea as tummy keeps on sending sleepy and lazy signal to the brain!

Oya! Just to update you guys that I’ve submitted my leave form to the HR dept. I will be start on leave on the 15th Oct. IF (if lagik!) I deliver over the weekend, then my leave application will be cancelled automatically and replaced with maternity leave. Let just see if I’m around or not on Monday!!

FORCE Labouring!!!

Hahahaha... the subject saja mau kasi suspen!! :lol:

Another Board Meeting on this coming 16th which means another Board Paper to be prepared. Before I start occupying myself with extracting agreements thingy AGAIN for the Board Meeting, let’s talk ‘bout yesterday…

Am on MC again yesterday. Padahal baru 2 days start working :lol: But, hey… now is the easiest time to get MC ok. The doctor will surely generous enuff to issue MC to a 38 wk preggy lady without questioning. *wink-wink*

We began our journey (ceh!! Macam jauh ja perjalanan!!) to hospital at 7.25am. Reached hospital at 7.45am. I was the 3rd patient of the day and was called in for ultrasound at 8.55am. 

As per last visit, I guess morning is the best time to see baby’s face. Baby is now weighting at 2.57kg! Doctor only asked me to prepare mentally and physically as I’m going to deliver ANYTIME!! Phew… I wish I will too… Panat sdh bawa2 ni perut ni… kekekeke…. Besides, I still have 2 routine check-ups next week which I really I wanted to avoid them… If by 20th (my EDD), am still not delivering… I will have to go direct to the hospital. Don’t tell me they wanted to induce me??? FORCE LABOURING??? Ohhh noooooo…. Baby, keluar la capat!! Kesian mumy…

Wonder when am I going to start on leave?? Am still considering lah! I only have balance of 2.5 days of AL to be cleared. Which means if I applied 5 days leaves for next week, the other 2.5 days will be unpaid leaves, IF( if lah) no delivery within those days applied. 60 maternity leaves will only start ticking on the day that I delivered. One thing to complaint here… Why the hell the 60 days is inclusive of all the public holidays, replacement of PH if it falls on Sunday, Saturdays and Sundays?????? Gheezzz…

Mmm… I think I might be start on leave on Wednesday, 15th lah!! Staying at home waiting for unpredictable delivery pun boring juga. At least, I got internet at office!

I’ve been thinking to apply for a broadband actually. Just for the sake of my 2 mths maternity leaves??? Yayyy… But, seriously… do I have time for internet browsing or blog hopping during my confinement at home?? Being a first time mom, I am totally ZERO in motherhood knowledge! I have to learn ‘bout baby! I have to learn to be a mom! I have to learn and be alert on everything single lil’ thing! Naaa… you tell me whether I have time for ‘broadbanding’ during my confinement??? I guess it is not worth for me to invest on it huh???

1 Syawal

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii… Now that you are able to read my latest post for today, meeeeans… I AM still working and no early delivery during Raya! Hehehehe…

What a long break huh??!! Uppss… some of you only had the 2 days PH. What to do lah kan?! So, how’s raya celebration and/or holidays??

As for me… I went for another last minute shopping on the very last day of Ramadhan. Again, bought kuih raya!! Too tempting!! Yummy yummy… Malam raya, changed cushion’s covers, filled up kuih raya into the bottles… Mum was excited too as this was our first time raya together and she did feel like as if it was a preparation for CNY. No lemang, nasi impit, ketupat, kari or rendang preparation… wonder why?? Continue reading k…

Kuih raya of the year... hehehe...

1 Syawal… Woke up early (nda jg awal betul ba!), showered, dressed up… the most important thing was to salam my hubby, minta ampun for every single lil’ thing that I could have done wrongly as a wife. *wink-wink*

Thanks to Anty E and friend for willing to accept a last minute tailoring order!
Purple theme for this year!!

Family pix - Hubby, me mom and bro

After the pix session and had our kuih raya, we were then head to my SIL's house. Another 2 younger SIL and BIL were already there.

After the bersalam-salaman session among the siblings, it was makan time… SIL prepared ketupat palas, lemang, rendang, chicken curry and 1 vege dish. Her rendang was yummmmmy even mum love it very muuuuch. Mum is very fussy when it comes to meat. When you see her eating meat, then thumbs up to the chef!! Now you know why we do not have to prepare the lemang & rendang huh?

Next, we went to my uncle’s house at Gombak. Besides the kuih raya, we had our 2nd round of lemang and rendang. But still we preferred SIL’s rendang!!

Only 2 houses already make me full! Pheww…

For the rest of the days until yesterday, I only stayed at home watching tv. Bored huh? But there are lots of tv programs to be watched!!

I’ve been trying to finish this post since this morning. *sigh* I guess I just stopped it here la k. Bukan ada story best pun… At least, you know that I AM still counting for my delivery day nervously.... *grin*
