Detailed Scan

When I got pregnant for the 1st time, I am so into mommies’ forums where I got lot of useful info and tips bout pregnancy. I find myself having fun reading the forumers pregnancy experiences. One of my fav forum stop is cari.

This is where I get to know bout Vision College; an institute offering highly skilled internationally recognized graduates in the field of Sonography and Health Science.

KL’s mommies normally will come to Vision College for a detailed scan or 3D scan. Why? Because it offers you the cheapest rates in town! Detailed scan and 3D scan will cost you at RM150 and RM90 respectively. Mommies will walk away with a piece of CD containing reports, images and videos of baby! If you would have to go the any other private hospitals, you will be surely charged at rm200 and above! *roll eyes*

Detailed scan or Fetal Anomaly Scan is supposed to be carried out before the 24th week of pregnancy; however I mixed it up with 3D scan and dragged it till my 28th week before I called up Vision College for an appointment. (Not sure what was in my mind that time!) I am very looking forward for this detailed scan as I got to know bout Rayyan’s condition also from this scan previously. It is always good to get ready, rite?

VC : Puan skrg dah 28week? Kite bleh buat 3D scan jer. Kenapa puan tak call awal2 for detailed scan?

Me : Huh?! Mmg skrg ni tak bleh buat detailed scan lg ke?

VC : (Checking with someone) Err.. kite bleh try buat detailed scan tp x janji bleh tengok betul2 sbb baby dah besar. Maybe the measurement semua pun tak betul. Tp utk detailed scan ni puan kena byr RM150 and 3D, RM90.

Me : Ok.. I go for the detailed scan.

VC : (checking again and pass the line over) Maybe the girl thinks that it is not worth it for me to pay when I can’t get the result as expected.

Student : Puan, mcm ni la.. biar I try tlg buat detail scan tu FOC and kalau puan rasa tak puas hati and nak minta my tutor yg buat the scan, then puan bleh buat appointment with my tutor.

I was so happy to hear that the student is willing to run the detailed scan with FOC! So, I fixed up an appointment even though hubby might not be able to accompany me. *sigh*

Taking half day on that particular day, I went for the detailed scan by myself! Have to take LRT to Tmn Bahagia and get a cab to the college. Hubby was quite worried for letting the wife going alone and feels guilty at the same time. Stubborn jugak the wife kan? *wink* I will save RM150 for the stubbornness, worth it or not? You tell me!

I was half an hour late and the student have been waiting. Even though she was rushing for her class, she still spent 1.5 hour for me. Sooo very kind of her.

Let see what I got this round..

My lil' angel

The yellow circle marked confirming the gender! Can you see it?

Overall, everything seems to be ok this round. 2++ mths more to go… Insya-Allah.

Kaamatan & Mother's Day

Saturday, 8 May 2010.

Surprisingly hubby was in his mood for the yearly event of Pesta Kaamatan Klang Valley which was taking place at Hotel Flamingo (as usual). Since mom also kind of excited bout this, so we headed to Hotel Flamingo at about 1.30pm.

The event started at 12.30pm with an entrance fee of RM5 per adult. Believe it or not, even I’ve been staying here in KL for almost 11 years, it was my first time being here for the event!! *grin*
1. The entrance chop
2. The ballroom

We were so happy to see Sabahan fellows dressing in our traditional costumes. Rasa mcm betul2 d KK ni. Hehehe… The ballroom was almost full. Only the few back row seats are available. We took our seats and makan. Hahahah… Terus makan lagi tu kunun. LOL. The hotel is serving fried rice, fried chicken, mixed vege, fruits and orange for the drink. Ok la ba tu kan…

Staying there for 2 hours, we managed to watch the 1st round of the 15 contestants of Unduk Ngadau, performance of Magunatip and singing performance by Esther (OIAM) – still remember her? I enjoyed her show very much. I like the way she tackled the audience. At least, she made me laugh. She’s such a talented performer, I think.

** Sorry lah pics are all blurry.. Guna hp cam ja ba!
1. The foods
2. The Unduk Ngadau contestants
3. Esther teasing the guy that she pulled from audience seats
4. Magunatip performance

As I’m typing this post, I’m still wondering who has been crowned as the Unduk Ngadau Klang Valley. Hmm… Been googling for an info, but zero! *sigh*

Sunday, 9 May 2010.

It’s Mother’s Day and we already planned to celebrate it at my SIL’s house at Sentul. Just a makan2 only. We bought a cake, SIL other pizza hut and another SIL fried chicken for the simple celebration. *smile*

(Heran jugak napa nda blow the candle dulu! Hahaha...)

For my dearest mom, I bought her a watch. :D

Well, that’s all bout my weekend…

Happy Mother's Day

A quicky post for the week before I go on half day leave in the afternoon today. I still got some pending stories need to share here but let wait till next week lah.

As we all aware, this coming Sunday is Mother's Day and it's my 2nd yr being a mom - still learning a lot to be a good mother though. *wink*

Being always left alone with my bro at home since kids coz mom have to work for living, our relationship is ok but we seldom show the love we have, but we know we love each other. It's just that we didn't really express it.

So, taking this opportunity to wish my beloved mom a very Mother's Day. We love you and we owe so much, mummy! Thanks for always there for us. Thanks for all the sacrifices. You're indeed the best mom in the world.

To all my mommies friends and all the mommies in the world, Happy Mother's Day to you. ^_^
