I’m finally a mom of two boys now Alhamdulillah our bundle of joy was born on Thursday smoothly. I didn’t expect it to be this soon since my gynae said maybe it will take another week or two before the due date.
Today I have started the bertungku and berurut session with the same kakak bidan I used during my firstborn confinement period.
As for the berpantang food for lunch and dinner, I am lucky that dear Hubby is able to cook for me. The menu consists of grilled fish marinated with ginger and black pepper, sawi sayur air and plain rice.
I am adjusting to the weird hours of breastfeeding and sleeping while sitting. Hopefully the next 40 days will go by without any problem.

Last Sunday we went to Claytime Art Jam at d7, Sentul East KL. I saw the advertisement about Claytime on Facebook on Friday and quickly contacted the person (Mr Ben) who advertised it.
My son who has been watching Sesame’s Street School going to pottery lesson is very excited to try his hand on the pottery wheel.
After 1 1/2 hour, he managed to make a single candle holder using the pottery wheel and several figurines using the pinch technique. I can’t wait to see the final products. Master Cheah, the pottery teacher will send all the creations made by participants that day for firing and glazing and we have to go and collect our stuffs once they are done.
Anyway, we are planning to join their finger painting on canvas Art Jam this Sunday. Hopefully I am healthy and has not given birth yet by this Sunday..haha!
My son has been making a lot of LEGO cars lately. He used to take the pictures of his creation using Ipod.
I told him to try taking pictures using my point and shoot (old) T30 SONY camera.
It’s quite hard for him to get a decent picture even when his dad preset the camera with stabiliser.
This second picture was taken with flash on. I hope after a few months of practising, he’ll get less fuzzy pictures.
In a few weeks time the second baby will be born (hopefully, because I can’t see the point of being overdue past the 40 weeks..isk isk!) This time for post natal set to be used during confinement, I decided to try set bersalin from Nona Roguy.
Last time I used Tropical Herbs by Amway. The set was quite good and convenient to use but since I have a terrible constipation problem, I thought I’m going to give the jamu based product a try this time around.
Apart from the products in the set, I also add on a few more items to be used during berpantang like bengkung, tungku besi, sarung herba, daun mandian, serbuk param, serbuk pilis, minyak telon and tungku for baby.
As usual I bought all the stuffs online and now waiting for them to arrive in few days time.
Will update about the progress of the post natal set usage once I use them. Please pray that the delivery of the baby will be smooth and I will be back to good health in no time.
I have a few more weeks to go before I deliver this baby and honestly I don’t know why suddenly the mood to clean up strike me. I have another 2 custom made decoupage orders to be completed. Since we live in a double storey house, sometimes I have to go up and down the stairs several times a day to get what I need to use for the craft work.
Then I found this on pinterest. A brilliant idea since the DIY caddy is easy to make and it’s not heavy to be brought up and down. I already have a wooden, heavy caddy for my craft supplies which I find a hassle to carry when you are 8 month pregnant..huhu!
Will do this with my son soon. At least he could see that there’s something else that could be made out of the paper towel tubes apart from making race cars (he learned that from Art Attack).
