I declare 'no-milk-day'!

It’s amazing. And I’m abit worried.

Yesterday, AIR’s last proper milk feed was in the nursery, before he fell asleep as I went to fetch him. At about 9pm, he awakens and has some milk, probably about 4oz. Not his usual amount. He stirs and wakes up again at almost 1am (yes, normally his last feed is about 11pm to 1am – depending on when he dozed off) and so we made milk for him.

Anticipating his reluctance in having milk recently, we made less, only about 4 oz also, and guess what, he rolled over and went back to sleep without even taking a sip from the bottle. He just refused. He turned away whenever the bottle was brought near him.

So nevermind, left him to be, thinking that he would disturb my sleep again shortly. But no, when I woke up at 530am, bottle was still full in the holder (means hubby also wasn’t awaken) and baby was happily babbling to himself, rolling around the cot. Boy oh boy. So I tried to tempt him with the bottle and again, same reaction.
Left him and got things done. Came back later and tried again (with newly made milk) and same response. So I thought to myself, this fella superbla, suddenly not hungry at all?

I was worried. Gave him biscuits and he took it, but unlike days when he is really hungry, when he finishes the piece he has, he will ask for more, but this time no, he kept on playing and only until I offered him another piece that he got distracted and wanted that piece. So for breakfast today, it was biscuit and juice instead of just milk. It must be really horrible to have the same milk for 10.5 months now, right? :)

Oh well…let’s hope he’s better with milk today at the nursery.

Oh No!

Its been ages since I posted anything.

This was supposed to help relief stress and vent my feelings, but no, it didn't turn out to be so.

On Sunday, AIR had fever. His 1st ever fever but we didn't think much about it, cos by evening, it was gone. then on Monday, in the wee hours, I realised he was HOT again. Hmmmm I got worried. Morning came and I reluctantly sent him to the nursery but by noon he was still the same. later, I think he wasn't feeling too good and the nursery called to say that he kept crying.

Worried, I left slightly early and went to pick him up. By that time, he wasn't hot anymore. Or warm. Just manja. And so I solicited help from dear Mum to come over (yes, import mali from Penang) to help take care of AIR. We were worried it could be something more serious.

By the next day he was actually fine, but not 100%. But being ultra-manja that he was, he enjoyed every moment with Granny.

On the day Granny left, we discovered spots on his face pulak. Oh Boy!! Hope its not the pox! Thank God, the Dr. confirm tat it could've been bedbugs or mites. Hmmmm his cot!

Luckily he's fine now!

and the weekend's here.....

what shall we do this weekend?

Is that all there is?

It's interesting or perhaps weird would be a better word to describe it, that when I had lunch at Pasar Siti Khadijah this afternoon, all, and I mean ALL the stalls there were selling the same food, i.e. nasi campur and soup (as in noodle soup). And EVERY single stall was the same. Perhaps the only difference may have been some of the dishes for the nasi campur, however, there were a few 'signature' dishes, i.e. the daging bakar, budu with something and alot of masak lemaks. (that was what I could gather glancing once over at some of the stalls.

Let's see, what shall I have for lunch tomorrow? I had bihun sup just now and it wasn't too bad. Hmmmm maybe I'll just drive around. I spotted a nasi kukus with ayam bakar which smelt very nice this afternoon when I drove by. The aroma of the ayam bakar seeped into the car. :) Or perhaps something else. hmmmm

Its been a long day....goodnight :P


Erm, yay because of what? because I can finally leave my sitting infront of the computer and go to site. Yeah!

1st it was a day trip to JB. Yes day trip...not exactly very tiring la, but I'm not a fan of night driving. Thank God it wasn't raining.

And now, I'm in Kota Bahru. Yes, and no, I didn't drive but flew here.

My 1st trip to KB was probably 20 yrs ago. Yes, that long ago and I barely remembered how it was like. And gosh, so many things are different here than the other states on the west coast of even Pahang. Terengganu is somewhat similar, but still not the same.

I'm quite surprised that people here are quite friendly and nice.

In fact, after completing my tasks, I had some time to drive around (part of my task, but I just went further) and well, seems like life here is pretty simple. I've yet to see the 'urban' housing estates yet. Hmmmm....

Anyway, lets see what else I'll be exploring tomorrow :)

Accident? Heart attack?

What’s your take if you see;
1. An elderly man sprawled on the road, half his body on the sandy roadside and the other half on the road, motorbike parked near him, upright and nothing wrong;
2. One hand outstretched onto the road;
3. Looked like sleeping (but dunno if he is);
4. Drenched ;
5. And it was RAINING heavily but he is still in that position sprawled; and
6. No one coming to aid (though it was the mainroad and many cars were passing by)

Of course being a female driver and alone, I wouldn’t stop lah. However, after I passed I noticed 2 motorcyclists actually turned around and went back to that ‘scene’.

And this happened near a car workshop, but not in view of the workshop. I suppose due to the rain, not many people would’ve heard him if he screamed.

My guess is that he may have had a heart attack or something. I hope he’s ok…or some kind Samaritan did help him somehow.

Terry Fox Run 2009

My 'partner' throughout the run
1st Nov 2009 – wow, 2 more months to the new year! How time flies.

Went for the Terry Fox Run, supposed to meet some colleagues (my boss, actually) but didn’t have her contact number, so I didn’t meet her there so we wouldn’t know if either party went. However, I was there as promised. Gosh, from the parking area, it was a good 10-15mins walk to the start point, through the park too. Lake Gardens is huge and all the parking areas are full.

So, I reached the starting just in time as they were calling for those with ‘wheels’ to be grouped at one side. I think not many took heed but I went anyway and soon, as I reached that point, it started. Oh, I had lil’ AIR in his stroller with me. And the best part was, he slept from the house right to the start and all the shifting from carseat to stroller didn’t wake him up.

I walked and there were just too many people. Somehow I was walking pretty fast, with or without stroller, and soon I began walking past a lot of people, while I have to realize I have to make way for those who are running. Then suddenly, up this one slope/hill, I decided to run. And so I did for the rest of the 3.5km. I guess it was my first run, complete with stroller through an undulating route. I didn’t get to go really fast cos it was congested, yes human-traffic-jam. But good enough for a jog. Superb. Until certain points where the sun came in the way and was shinning at AIR, had to stop for some adjustments to his stroller.

The best part of the whole thing was – AIR slept right through, sun shinning on him or not, road bumpy, rickety or not. Oh boy, it was bliss…there were kids crying out to be carried, complained tired and hot and didn’t want to go any further….and here I was enjoying myself running with AIR.

At the finish point, one guys even commented that he was amazed that AIR slept, and I actually expected him to wake up maybe 30mins later. Cos from home to the start was already a good 45 mins and his morning naps don’t last longer than 1 hr.
On the walk back to the car, just exiting Lake Gardens, he suddenly awakens and cries out. He slept for a good 2 hrs! My oh my! Now he wants to be carried. Not good enough just having eye contact with me. Can u imagine, now I have to carry him in one hand and steer the stroller with the other and road was not flat. Yes, tired, arm aching after less than 200m. So I pujuk him to take a seat. Thank God he sat down quietly. And I kept imagining if this had happened during the event.
Somehow, I had fun....
