old boys and old friends.

Hello all !
Updates, as promised.  

As if anyone really reads my blog, haha.

Two weeks ago, Mr. Sunshine brought Khayla and I to Ipoh, again. This time around it was for his former school, Sekolah Tuanku Abdul Rahman's (STAR) Old Boys Weekend. We took leave on Friday and checked in at Impiana Hotel, Ipoh that afternoon. Khayla and I spent most of our time in the room while Mr. Sunshine met up with his ex-schoolmates.

Khayla and Ayah at STAR, Ipoh on the evening we arrived. Mr. Sunshine took us on a tour of his school. I had goosebumps, as though it was my former school !


Khayla was pretty excited throughout the whole trip, polishing her walking skills and exploring every nook and cranny in the hotel room.

"Ayah is leaving us in the room ? No biggie, I'll just lie down and watch telly !"
"...or maybe lie down and check out what I can order from the room service menu !"

Trying to call room service ? Hehe.

I guess she found her happy place. Hehe.
Told ya she enjoyed herself !

Immediately after we reached home on Sunday evening (16/9/2012), we freshened up and headed to Gan & Wei Ting's wedding. Lene was supposed to come along, but she found a date at the very last minute and met us there instead. :)

It was such a beautiful night ! I got to meet my beautiful friends (and probably the only people apart from my family who know how to pronounce my name correctly, haha tetiba) and celebrate the lovely couple. I had tears in my eyes when I saw the bride & groom walking hand in hand. This is the guy I've known since I was 14 ! I know our friendship has changed over the years and we're not as close as we were before, but I was truly happy for him ! *nangis*

CONGRATULATIONS MR. & MRS GAN !! :))

The ever so beautiful Felicia and I. Even Khayla was enamoured by her.

L-R: Khayla, Me, Judith, Felicia, Marlene & Jaclyn. :)

Group photo ! See, Khayla is still trying to peek at Felicia ! Hehehe.

Ayah, who had to tend to Khayla when she started to get sleepy and cranky.
Looking forward to get together with all of them soon, since I'm back in Gombak already.

I had to go for a 4 days-3 nights induction course at UiTM's Training Centre, Kampung Gajah, Perak from last Friday to Monday.
I was fortunate that I had already attended an induction when I was working with the Ministry of Health, so I only had to attend 4 out of the 14 days of induction. Alhamdulillah.
I was very impressed by the rooms they provided for us for the course. Almost hotel-like, with two twin beds, air condition, water heater and we even have to insert our keycard for power. Hehe. It was a comfortable stay, plus I had an awesome roomie so all in all it was good.
I sure hope I aced the exam ! Ameen.

They even provided us with towels, shampoos & shower gels. :)






Mr. Sunshine and I will be moving out from Gombak to Shah Alam soon. We found a 2-storey house to rent for the time being. Why move out ? Well, it's an effort to save energy, time, and money. :)
We went to see the house two nights ago and it was okayyy lah. It isn't my dream house, but I can live in it. I think. Haha.

Although Syawal has ended, I'm gonna leave you people with two snapshots of my colleagues and I during our office's Raya celebration.

With my boss (in purple) and the pharmacy assistants. :)

Comel tak kami ? Haha.
 Here's to a smashing weekend, bye !

time waits for no man.

Hello all !
I've been struggling to find time to write a decent post but as you can see, I am failing miserably. I just got back from my UiTM induction course. I left Mr. Sunshine & Khayla for 4 days & 3 nights.
I hope I can squeeze in some time to tell you all the details on me being away, in the meantime here's a couple of photos of me & the new friends I made during the induction course.

Until then, take care all !

spreading the love ?

So, I just found out that Lene had diarrhea and mild fever at work on Sunday, Marc started to have diarrhea and fever yesterday, and Linn is vomiting & purging too ! The paediatrician did mention that Khayla could have passed the virus to us, so I'm starting to think that she actually did !

Woah.

But Alhamdulillah Daddy seems to be looking alright, so far lah.

stomach flu, boo-hoo.

Last weekend was supposed to be filled with us visiting relatives & friends & attending wedding invitations. But, we had to stay at home paying numerous of visits to the toilet instead.

The only friend we managed to pay a visit to was Diana, on Friday morning. Pictures and details at the end of the post.

Mr. Sunshine, Khayla and I are all recovering from a weekend of diarrhea, vomiting and fever. Khayla started throwing up on Friday afternoon and it went on for a good 5 hours. Everything she ate or drank (even plain water) would just come right back out. After the severe vomiting phase, she started to have very watery diarrhea, and that went on throughout Friday night right up until Saturday afternoon. She would poop every 1 hour and because it was so watery, it would leak out ! Tsk tsk. She had on & off mild grade fever. We tried to keep her hydrated throughout the whole ordeal with water, milk and oral rehydration salts. I also gave her SMECTA for her diarrhea. She showed signs of improvement on Saturday evening. Alhamdulillah.

Mr. Sunshine started experiencing nausea on Saturday evening, he was all feverish that night. I paid several visits to the toilet on Saturday night due to diarrhea. Can you begin to imagine how our Sunday was ?
Mr. Sunshine and I woke up throwing up everything we ate the night before. We were extremely nauseous, our tummies weren't feeling so good, and we had zero appetite. I started feeling extremely weak & feverish and I checked my temperature, it was 38 degrees Celsius ! I took two tablets of Paracetamol and went to bed shivering, in the hot afternoon. Poor Mr. Sunshine, who was also not feeling too good was left to take care of Khayla on his own. :(

Alhamdulillah the three of us are doing much better today, although I am still nauseous and haven't fully regained my appetite.
I just came back from bringing Khayla to her Paediatrician because she has been refusing to drink milk (only a cumulative of about 6 oz of milk since Saturday afternoon ! She usually has 5 oz every 3-4 hours) and doesn't have much of an appetite for food. Plus she is still in quite an irritable mood, and has been having a hard time going to bed, and would only sleep after I rub her tummy with some Yu Yee oil. :(
According to the Paediatrician, although the symptoms experienced by Khayla are similar to a Rotavirus infection, it could be any virus or bacterial infection. But since Khayla is no longer vomiting and her bowel movements have somewhat normalized, there is no need to get a stool culture done.What's important is Mummy & Ayah kept her hydrated. *pats back*

I am told to switch to a lactose-free formula for a week because all the diarrhea and vomiting has most probably stripped away the enzyme (that will properly digest lactose in milk) in Khayla's stomach's digestive acids which is causing the uncomfortable gas, heartburn, and diarrhea. Poor baby. :(
I was also told to give Khayla some Probiotics to assist in her intestinal healing, which can take up to 6 weeks. :(
In the meantime, all I can do is pray and be patient, hopefully Khayla will regain her appetite and usual bubbly self soon ! She has even lost a bit of weight.
Poor baby, Mummy misses watching you enjoy eating and drinking. *nangis*

Before I end, here are a couple of photos taken at Diana's mum's place on Friday morning (pre-stomach flu).

Harith was actually cranky that his mother was holding Khayla. Khayla and Harith had their first fight, over the rubic cube Khayla is holding in the picture. Hehe. Thanks for having us, D & Hanan ! :))

Ececeh, shy shy pulak. :p

Ok people, gotta get back to my baby.
Until my next post, bye !
