Ceritera Confinement

I have been under confinement for almost two weeks. *sigh* Why sigh? Two words to describe bout confinement are leceh and boring coz need to take care of so many things such as medicines (morning n nite), tungku, bengkung, etc…

But of coz the best part is you don’t have to worry bout work & office even though I still received calls n sms-es from my colleague who is replacing me asking this n that. But, still acceptable la… *wink*

Going to share bout my confinement here… Where I do start ya?

Ok… let’s start with shower since it is the first thing I do every morning. *grin* I shower with air rebusan daun2/kayu2 (sorry, I also dunno what they are! But mom calls it “Rusap”) which imported from KK. And as-to-date, I have yet wash my hair!! Can you imagine the smell and the stickiness?! *faint* (wrote this yesterday and I’ve washed my hair today sbb x tahan! LOL)

Before I proceed, here’s my confinement staff…

A. Tungku (RM14.90)

B. The old folks in Sabah called it “Pecah Darah’. It’s a set of 2 types of pills. Yes, it’s for pecah darah and buang angin. The ‘sin sei’ in KK sure knows it’s for those yang baru beranak. There are 10 mini boxes inside each box. RM18/box. (for 10days)

C. Confinement set – Warisan Afiat Herba (RM79.90)

D. Pati Ikan Haruan (RM32) (6 bottles per box – for nite)

Next, bertungku… During Rayyan’s, my mom just filled in hot water into an empty bottle and I have to ‘roll’ it on my tummy. As for this round, I bought a tungku (refer to item A on above pic). It has to be steamed first and 'tuam' on the tummy while it is still hot. A step to mengecutkan rahim dan memecahkan ketulan darah di dalam rahim spy keluar sebagai darah nifas… I hope I’m giving the correct explanation here! Hee.. ;p

Next, berbengkung… utk mengempiskan perut dan mengembalikan kelangsingan. Hehehe… Glad that I found the Bengkung Zap Balqis while browsing the net. It is so much easy to use compare to my previous bengkung – the traditional type where you need to lilit2...

Firstly, apply the minyak angin (A) on tummy. Wrap tummy with any cloth (B), then wrap with the Barut Berubat (C) and then with the bengkung (D). Bengkung is advisable to be worn for 24hours. Take off only during shower. As for me, I can’t comply with that. So, I only wear it after shower and take it off at nite. Should be ok la kan? *wink*

My tummy with bengkung... yg bakal slim.. ehem ehem..

For breakfast, I had been having a bowl of mi-suah with chicken soup and a cup of nestum for the passed 10days!!! Gheezzz…

And here come the medicine part… For the full set of my confinement product, I bought Warisan Afiat Herba. It consists of 10 items and the Barut Berubat is what I attracted to at the first place (refer bengkung).

 Pic A – medicine taken for the 1st 3 days during confinement. 2 types of Afiat + Pecah darah.

Pic B – medicine taken from the 4th day for a week. 2 types of Afiat + Pecah darah.

Pic C (below A) – I don’t think my throat can accept the pills. In powder foam will be much easier!

Pic D (below B) – The pecah darah! Mcm Pil Chi Ki Tek On kan… *grin*

On the 20th day, I will have to boil the Akar Kayu Afiat… untuk diminum!! Mesti pahit gila!! *roll eyes*

A part of all the above, I also take a teaspoon of black vinegar every morning and nite. Mom says it helps to heal the luka dalaman bhgn bawah… ;p

Phewww… Done! Till then… ^_^
