It has been a year!

Today marks the first year I have been successfully breastfeeding baby Iqbal. Syukur alhamdulillah.. :D You can read how we began [here] and when we reached the 6th month marks [here].

We have tried a few times to supplement Baby Iqbal with formula milk after he was 6 months old. Failed attempts every time. There are times when I am worried about my milk supply. So as usual, what I'd do is to eat and drink a lot. Somehow I feel like I am not that petite anymore.
-___- Haha it's okayyy ;)


I am constantly worried because he is slowly not gaining any weight for the last three months despite having three meals daily. Breakfast with fruits puree, lunch and dinner with either butternut squash + pear or sweet potato + apple, though for the past couple of months he also eats rice with fish or chicken and pasta with us for lunch and dinner.

Since he has started on solid foods, he only direct feed about 5-6 times from morning to midnight, and few times when he sleeps. He basically just opens my shirt whenever he wants it. Other than breastmilk, he drinks water and eat snacks in between meals. I have not introduce him to fresh fruit juices yet. Maybe I should do that soon!

I must say, it has been a wonderful journey being able to breastfeed Baby Iqbal this long! I never expected it. I keep telling myself, "selagi masih ada and mampu, just continue breastfeed". Dear Husband keep reminding me the same thing too. Alhamdulillah.. I always have him to support me. ILY Sayangg! :D I love baby mama too! :D

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.


Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.


1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…
