An Open Letter To My 21-Year-Old Self

Dear 21-year-old me, You’re stronger than you know. At this point in time, you’ve been married for over a year, been through a miscarriage, and are currently in the hospital freaking out over your rainbow baby who has been admitted in the NICU with congenital pneumonia. He’s going to be there for over a week and…

It’s Baby Versus Rambutan And The Fruit Won

  Little baby Aisha isn’t very interested in solid food. Usually I give her toys to play with but this evening there were a few rambutan on the table so I placed some on her table top to distract her while I tried to feed her. After several unsuccessful mouthfuls I realized that something was off….

I Tried Out Durian Condoms

So today Sam wrote a story about durian flavoured condoms from the company ONE. A short while after it was published, ONE shared it on their Facebook. And I’m not sure how this happened but that afternoon they sent over a bag full of durian flavoured condoms. I love them. For their packaging. They smell…

I Found A Lump In My 4-Year-Old’s Neck

Sulaiman has had a lump in his neck since he was around 2-years-old. I thought it was just a lymph node that was swollen due to sore throat or a cold. But it’s been two years and it’s still there. Yesterday Ayub had a follow-up appointment at Hospital KL with his therapist. I showed her…

The Baby Rolls Over At 4 Months Old

Aisha has been trying to roll over since she was 3 months old. She was doing pretty ok. Getting to one side. Luckily for her, she’s much lighter than her two old brothers who were decidedly fat 🙂 At around 4 months (I can never keep track of weeks), she’s finally strong and coordinated enough…

Gina's Place Breastfeeding Centre KL

Gina’s Place Helped Me Breastfeed Successfully

Despite my efforts, I have struggled with breastfeeding since the beginning. Ayub was bottle fed formula, and I pumped exclusively with Sulaiman. This round I was adamant about breastfeeding Aisha. Luckily I stumbled upon Gina’s Place through a friend’s Facebook testimonial, and it was the best thing that could have happened. What is Gina’s Place? Gina’s Place…

My 7-Year-Old Chooses To Take Ritalin Everyday

I was a little skeptical of Putrajaya Hospital’s dyslexia diagnosis of Ayub, but we got in touch with the Dyslexia Association of Malaysia all the same. But following certain events, which I’ll get into another time, I decided we needed a second opinion. Since all the doctors we’ve ever spoken to since Ayub’s birth have…
