Day 9 in the life under Restricted Movement Order

Dayana Z | Thursday, March 26, 2020 | 0Comments |
Today's Day 9 after the government announced the Restricted Movement Order ("RMO").

Alhamdulillah there's still enough food (or maybe more than enough).
Today we ate Nasi Ayam.

Grocery stores are still open, though no more visiting malls and other leisure areas.

Naurah wants to go to Gymboree already.

Mia Durrah is exploring all the places in the house.

The bread, face masks and hand sanitizers have became quite scarce at the shops. Other things may not be stocked up as fast too. Tried calling the banks' customer service centre, the bot that answered mentioned "system down". Maybe everyone is still adjusting with working from home.

I still don't know how people, especially mothers without maids, and with small children could work from home. Their husbands would be working too right? So who'll be taking care of the crying, hungry and bored children? Still haven't figured this one out.

Bahagianya shopping!
Siapa yang tak suka shopping kan, perempuan ke lelaki ke, sama je kalau bab dapat barang baru mesti gembira.
Disebabkan dah berjanji dekat diri sendiri tak boleh shopping sesuka hati dan perlu berjimat cermat hidup sekarang ni, makanya Mama Naurah ni shopping disposable diapers online jelah - itu pun dah bahagia.

Kalau beli Petpet Newborn 1 pek 62 keping di kedai harganya dalam RM31 satu pek.
Tapi, Mama Naurah jumpa offer di Lazada, 4 pek x 62 keping hanya RM76.90 sahaja, kos pos RM5, total RM81.90 sahaja. Maknanya, satu pek RM20.475!


Sesiapa yang nak cari barang baby di Lazada bolehlah KLIK DI SINI!

Pre-natal Check Up Experience at Az-Zahrah and KPMC

Dayana Z | Tuesday, May 16, 2017 | 0Comments |
Because I have benefitted reading other people's blog post on their experience going for check-ups in hospitals, I shall share mine too.

For my first ever pre-natal check up, I went to Klinik Desa and Klinik Kesihatan Sg Chua. The waiting time was bearable, but of course, you'd have to take the day off of work if you're a working mom. I wasn't working yet at that time so I went with Ibu. The doctor was a young GP. She asked questions thoroughly, and wrote a lot of things in the pink book. The check up was totally FREE. If I wasn't working, I would have continued going to government clinics for check up because their service is alright.

For the next few check ups after that, I went to Kajang Plaza Medical Centre (KPMC), my appointments were with Dr Anitarina. She's soft spoken, motherly and would always explain things thoroughly. I like her. My check up was always on a Monday night. KPMC was a bit gloomy and the air conditioning to me was not cold enough - which I could still tolerate. One thing that got to me was that there's no tissue in or near the toilet at the ground floor, but at the nurses' counter which I thought was inappropriate. Halfway through my pregnancy my mom's friend who's a doctor, recommended two doctors in Hospital Islam Az-Zahrah, Bangi, so I tried going to Az-Zahrah. 

At Az-Zahrah I chose Dr Fazlina because when I called to make an appointment I was told that she's available on Saturdays. I prefer weekends or weekday evenings because I didn't want to use up my annual leave for check ups. I tried for a check up with Dr Faz. The doctor seemed professional, and the hospital is clean and bright too. I continued my check ups with Az-Zahrah, reason being, all the OB doctors are women. I don't know how doctors work, but if I had to deliver at odd hours, I don't want a man as an on-call doctor. 

Dr Faz gets straight to the point when she wants to tell you something which I thought was a bit scary at first, but as I get to know her over a few check ups, she's actually nice. She explains things well too. I could always ask questions, but I understand she has a long queue waiting outside, so she had to explain things quite fast. After sessions with her, I would google things I still don't quite understand. Dr Faz delivered my baby girl, Naurah. Despite being in labour pain, I got to notice how Dr Faz was in control of the whole situation, she knew how to handle the nurses and her strong aura was passed on to me which made my final labour process easier. 

In terms of cost, of course the cheapest would be government clinics with no fee at all. Az-Zahrah is a bit more expensive compared to KPMC - I think, but only around RM30-50 more.
In terms of recording and writing things in the pink book, both doctors in the private hospitals did not write as much as the doctor at the government clinic.
At the private hospitals, I got to scan my baby during every single appointment. I heard ultrasound scan is only for specific weeks for check ups at the government clinics.

If you have queries regarding things that I have not mentioned, do drop them in the comment box below.

I shall write about the experience of being in labour in another post. Till next time.

Healthy Food Search at ISETAN, KLCC

Dayana Z | Monday, January 16, 2017 | 0Comments |
Today's lunch hour was the first time I went to look around the Isetan Foodmarket, after almost 4 months working in KLCC.

I was on a healthy food search! 

But I did find what hearts desire ;) - wide choice of ice cream!  

Insaf sikit, went back to look for healthy food, healthy cereals, looking good.

I'm not sure how the price of groceries in Isetan Foodmarket compare to other big retailers like Tesco, Giant etc. out there. What I do know is that, there's plenty of options of imported foods here. Be it from Europe or Asia.

Continuing with the healthy food search, I found healthy organic grains - which I'm clueless on preparing them, hence I might not buy any in the near future.

Alas my lunch of the day is a variety of salad from the salad bar.

Which costed me RM9.49 for a mid-sized, not so full bowl.

Here's what I ate, there's fruit salad, potato salad, there's broccoli, a little bit of pasta, and brussel sprouts. They were quite delicious. 

A mother and a career woman at the same time?

The last time I wrote something in this blog was about my cute little kittens! That was months ago, when I was back in England. Now the cute little kittens are still cute, but not so little anymore. Arthur weighs easily more than 4kg! While we're at it, please do follow my ragdolls' instagram account: ragacrystal_ragdolls.

I'm now working, in a very hectic city. Mana lagi kalau bukan Kuala Lumpur.

Here's a photo of my office, courtesy of Google. I need to take a picture of me and my office someday.

And, I am alhamdulillah 24 weeks pregnant.

There's this feeling of excitement as I think of how our baby is going to look like, but it's nerve-wrecking to think that I'll be leaving baby for almost 12 hours a day, or even more. During the daylight. Won't I miss my baby?

Every career woman goes through this I suppose, and it is doable with the support of husbands of course, family and friends. Abang sila bertambah lah kesabaran anda ya :).
It's just, I'm a bit worried if I don't get much involvement in watching her grow, teach her things, learn from her even. May Allah give all mothers out there strength. Indeed, I very much need it.

I suppose, mothers just get their strength out of love.
Their love is unimaginable and extraordinary.
