A long week..

...or may i say weeks!

Absent from the office for the last 2weeks, i worked only 2 weeks for the whole august! its a long story! But to cut it short, i've been hospitalized for 6 days in Putrajaya Hospital, my sister gave birth to beautiful baby girl (23rd), and my parents when to off for hajj last saturday (28th). So many things can happen in one week, right? Alhmdulillah, everything went well. I have been discharged before mom left, and i was hospitalized in the room beside my sister's which enables me to help her once in a while :)

In the office today settling few items. preparing for my boss pre maternity break items, tho he got most items covered already due to my absent these few weeks :) Not my mistake i have literally no assistant after one colleague left in 2014 :) And then my boss arranged for me to being partner-ed with one being thrown out from her previous group..hehehe. Buang, and recruit baru. Our group left with the one they dont want anymore. Sigh. I am open, i accept anyone, but if you do not want to learn, its not my problem :)

im still pregnant tho~
Hospitalization was for pre-eclampsia, which i guess needs a special post for it. My doctor (specialist handling my case) was so careful in discharging me, she actually really refused to let me go by day 6!

Oklah thats all for today's update. Kita tgk what happens for 1/9/2016 which is my next appointment with the hospital specialist. Sept baby afterall. Inshallah :)

Yay! It's friday!

Salam Jumaat! :)

Too many things planned and inshallah happening this August and September! All week long i have waited for friday to come! Yalah, who doesn't like weekends kan? Mom is going for Hajj inshallah this year, and we're still waiting anxiously for the final debut of my sis baby due end of August. Aliyya had finished her A-levels and passed with flying colors guaranteeing her a scholarship to the UK flying off inshallah this mid Sept. Fahmi my brother in law is getting married instead of just getting engaged. And me myself, we're expecting baby no 3. Haa too much in too little time. We'll take one thing at a time lah kan?

Enjoy the weekend chilling with these duos. Buying time for a nice story telling session :) Some playground/park/ice cream outing maybe. Maybe some arab food for the sunday night, boleh daddy?


See ya!

Those Lamb Chops...

August the 8th, 2016
Working post 3days weekends :) All brand new and excited to do new things today. Jom kerja!

Had some beautifully marinated lamb chops last week as requested by hubs. Pity him, I rarely cook this pregnancy around, and my lamb chops had always won his heart and stomach. Always! So yes, I had to made him some! And to my surprise, lamb chops were really iman's favorite too..tak sangka! Well, that makes mommy's work a lot easier. Sekali masak, favorite semua. And what's better than pairing those lamb, with some simple coleslaw and potato fries :)

For a lovely monday, let me share how easy the rub I made for the chops!

500g lamb chops of preferred part
1 medium sized onion*
5 cloves of garlic*
1/2 inch of ginger*
2tbsp of course ground black pepper
3tbsp of ketchup
5tbsp of soy sauce
1tbsp of oyster sauce (optional)
1tbsp of cumin powder
Salt to season
1. Pound all in (*) together to form a paste.
2. Add paste and all other ingredients into the lamb. Rub thoroughly until all is mixed.
3. Let lamb sit/marinate for at least 1hour.
4. Grill your lamb up to preference. Better without any additional oil. Glaze left over rub seasonings whilst grilling.
For some gravy, add milk/cream into the used grilled pan. Mix and season to liking. Serve

Senang sahaja kan?
Tastes better than your steakhouse for sure!

Happy Monday everyone!

3rd trimester at 8 months+ pregnant

2nd August 2016
Syawal ke-28

Lama tak share perkembangan baby Z3 :) Kalau ikut kalender, this week dah masuk minggu ke-34 tp klu scan size baru 32 weeks at 2kg+. I guess maybe scan date yg betul, mana mana pun janji adik sihat and menendang dgn jayanya, alhmdulillah. this time around mmg rs ms teramat pantas! Dgn raya nya, and puasa nya (yay! We've made it for full 1mths ramadhan!). memang x paksa tau ms ramadhan tu, siap mmg ada kurma and biscuits dlm bag sentiasa 'in case'. But alhmdulillah, genap 30hari puasa kita.

Third trimester ni biasalah. semua br perasan perut tetiba dh besar. Yups, perut dh besar, jln dh mcm penguin sebab kepala dh kat bwh. dh in position, and rsnya mcm dh engage. last check-up 2wks ago post raya, belum engage lg and doc kata perut nmpk kecik, tp bila ukur and scan alhmdulillah ok. Hb ok, berat ok, blood pressure ok, urine ok. Susu and vits still on skrg dh tukar to Marigold HL pula sb Dutch Lady lo-fat rs mcm too milky pula tiba2 (--"). Vits kita masih go on with Vitalea yg dh sesiap beli utk pantang sekali (60 days -> 120tabs). 

Pregnancy kali ni was smooth alhamdulillah, though dah masuk 30s and post 2 csect, i was expecting the worst, sakit blkg takdelah teruk mana, and sentiasa top up on minerals esp isotonic drinks etc to avoid leg crampings. Cuma letih lah, i slept daily 9-11 sblm bgn balik to do house chores or read to the boys. And for this time i developed eczema on both foot kat bahagian atas. Gatal juga but doc takboleh prescribe steroid due the pregnancy, so i just put some vco and bear with it dgn doa by delivery hilang lahhh.. amin!  dulu with amsyar and iman develop juga eczema but kat ketiak. homai mmg pedih2 and gatal and need to be sentiasa kering which was really difficult with my job nature. office pun dh level 3. from one place to another took me 10mins walking at least (--') So yes, my mc's this time was quite minimal (3 hari je ...since day 1 pregnant) alhmdulillah. Cuma skrg to move around mmg quite difficult and sometimes i forget i'm pregnant bila perut tersadung pemegang tangga lah, bonet kereta lah, and my feet swells after long hours of part trial terlupa nak duduk. mcm itulah.....

Everything dah mcm ok kan? going on smoothly, normally alhmdulillah, cuma belum start check-up kat hospital. Next week inshallah. Previous scar pun xde sakit or apa, cuma ambik extra precautions, kita tak tau kan, sebab risk of uterine rupture (rahim pecah) ni higher for c-sects moms esp bila baby dah membesar. Yang tak pernah c-sect pun boleh rupture, inikan pula csect mommies. 

About prep menyambut org baru, last week dah start membasuh koleksi baju2 abg amsyar yg still elok. tak byk pun sbnrnnya. Lampin yg berpuluh2 helai dulu pun dh tinggal 8 helai sahaja, yg lain tatau g mana, misplaced (T_T) Barut alhmdulillah still in stock >20pieces assorted sizes. So maybe kena tmbah 5pcs shj lagi. Bantal baby dh beli, minyak telon dh beli, bakul baby dh beli. bottles dah order from lazada. hah tu jelah..yang tak beli lagi..baaaanyak lagi! 

For mommy lagikla..this year inshallah my mom nk perform Hajj so, kita kna pantang sendiri inshallah. Dah takmau susahkan MIL sb dia pun tak sihat sgt dah. So byklah yg kena put in plan bila pantang sendiri ni, thing to DIY, lauk2 simple. Periuk nasi mini pun dh beli for hubs tolong tanak every morning, inshallah..ok ajer as the older boys will be going to school whole day, so kita with baby ajelah. Boleh inshallah, nak set-up pantry and pumping station kat bilik sahaja as I plan to rest sahaja for confinement. Simple2 sahaja. Beli mandian herba sikit, cari tukang urut.. tu jalah disamping menjaga diri sendiri dan berharap diri boleh buat stock susu byk2! Doakan i berjaya okeh?

Tu ja kot update this time around. Panjang pula..maaf! :)
