Farm in the City Review

>>  21 May 2015

Last Saturday we went to Farm in the City in Seri Kembangan, Selangor. I thought it would be fun to bring Aisyah there since we can touch the animals. We'd been to Zoo Negara before but that time Aisyah was still small and still couldn't walk. Of course we couldn't touch the animals in the zoo.

We moved from house around 830 am, had our breakfast at the nearest Mamak and arrived at Farm City around 10 am. The sun shone quite intensely at that time. So we bought Aisyah a cap at the Souvenir Shop before the entrance of the Farm in the City. However, once we arrived inside the Farm in the City the pathway was covered. So Aisyah only wore the cap halfway.

Before we bought the ticket, we met with the ostrich first. The ostrich was very near to the visitor. Only the gate separated us from the ostrich.

Ticket price was RM32 (after GST) for adult and free for kids below 100 cm. So we paid RM64 for me and my husband. If you have no cash, they also has debit/credit card machine there. So, no worries.

We started our exploration from the left. We were greeted by the turtles, little turtles they put inside the fence while the big one, they left them outside. The worker gave us some vegetables to feed the turtle. It was kinda amazing to see how the turtles ate the vegetables. Aisyah helped us fed the turtle too but she didn't seem so excited maybe she still tried to get use to the place. The worker also captured our picture and gave us a paper with a number. It was the number of the picture which we can select to print at the exit.

Next stop was the bird area. They left the birds freely in the cage. There weren't a lot of birds and the cage was quite small. But the fun part was the worker put the bird on my husband's hand, let it walked on my husband's arm to his shoulder and licked his sweat at the neck. Haha. It was quite surprising to see the bird licking my husband's sweat. Haha. Apparently the bird likes sweat. Maybe because its salty? Don't know. Hihi.

Then we went to deer and goat place . Before that we walked through snake area. I think the cage for the snake was not really safe. There were even snakes on top of us (separated by glass of course). We just walked through this area since I was quite scared. Haha.

At the deer and goat place, we could touch the deer and feed the goat. Aisyah was so brave, she touched the deer so many times. She also fed the goat, so brave my daughter. I didn't remember where we went afterwards. I think maybe the rabbit place? They put the rabbit freely inside the rabbit area. So we could go around and play with the rabbit. Aisyah was quite scared at first but she still brave herself to touch a few of the rabbits.

The we entered another cage. There's few animal inside this cage. One of it was little monkey. There were two of the little monkeys. Me and my husband thought the monkeys were quite cute and approachable.

Next stop was a big covered area where they put few animals under it like chicks, ostrich egg, snakes, turtles, one hairy animal which we didn't know what animal was it and a few more. We gave a chick to Aisyah and she wanted to squeeze it. My husband cancelled giving the chick to her and put the chick back into its house. (-_-) . About the ostrich egg, apparently it can withstand 90 kg of adult weight but if it being thrown away, it can break. So magical.

So that's it, our exploration with animals.

Oh yes, there's also pony ride. TIPS, if you plan to ride the poney, don't forget to buy the ticket at the counter. Only RM7. We didn't know about this, so we didn't buy the ticket. I think it will be fun. Another TIPS, I don't think stroller is convenient in there. So try to use carrier instead.

Alright, time for pictures.











Till then, Assalamualaikum.

Friday Rambling

>>  15 May 2015

Fasting month, Ramadhan is coming in 1 month. Have you qada' your missing fasting day yet? I don't, I have 3 days more. Today, Friday I push myself to fast too. It's a bit hard because yesterday I was fasting too and also because I have gastric and still breastfeed my baby.

Back when I was single, I didn't even had to sahur (eat before Subuh prayer time). But now, I just can't. I have to eat rice and drink milk. Aging is catching up on me, gulp.

Having said that, I just can't wait for Ramadhan. Last year Ramadhan, I decided to fully cover my aurat (you know, wear socks and loose fitting outfit). I hope this year Allah will grant my wish to be a better muslim and also be able to go to terawih (well I don't think I can since I have a toddler but who knows right).

Since I didn't update my blog for quite some time, here a bit of update about me.

I've been quite busy with work, we just have a new software. So its been quite a learning process and I kinda enjoying it. Aisyah has been wonderful, she learns a lot of new things and making a lot of faces. Whenever I think of Aisyah and my husband, I feel very blessed and really I just don't wish for anything else.

I also tried a new skincare last 2 weeks and it was so terrible. My face became so dry, got rash, redness and even peeled a lot. It was quite stressful since I need to go to work. I really avoided talking to people and of course avoided the sun. I was suppose stop using it when my skin became dry but due to the review and also from the owner of the skincare's advice, I continued using it for about 1 week and half. Urgghh, what a mistake. My skin is still recovering now. I was thinking to seek consultation from the doctor but after 3 days using my old cleanser and moisturiser, it got a lot better so I cancelled my intention to see the doctor. Alhamdulillah, it got better. I hope no one will try like me, stop using any harsh product on your face. Even your skin get better after using harsh skincare, trust me it won't be for long. Once you stop, your skin will become even worst than before.

Okay till then,

Assalamualaikum.

Time

>>  30 March 2015

My time at home and during weekend run out so fast. Without knowing, the weekend already ended And the Monday starts again. The cycle went so quickly and my list of things to do was never finish. I always update my list of things to do and planned to settle them during the weekend but the time always beat me. Like today, I still have 5 pending item to do. They are simple tasks but getting to the process of doing them requires time which I don't have.

But I have learnt my lesson. I won't rush in doing this task (unless its extremely important) because if I do that, I will get stress and my family will be affected too. So until I can, I just enjoy every moment I have. If I can do it, I will do it. If I cant, then I will let it go. Life is too short to be stress too.

Okay, that's it for today.

Haha.

Bye, till then. Assalamualaikum.

Aisyah and Constipation

>>  03 March 2015

My baby is having constipation right now. It is more than 2 months already. We are not sure what was the cause. Coincidentally, she got the constipation one week after discharged from the hospital due to fever. Here, some chronology of her case. 2 months ago, she took 5 days to p**p, so we gave her enema at her b**t to trigger the p**p to come out. Her p**p was like goat's p**p. Round and hard. Then we discovered there was blood when we was cleaning her b**t.  It triggered us to bring her to see a doctor, doctor A. Doc A prescribed lactulose with 2 m/l dosage three times a day before meal. The result? Nothing change. She still cried whenever she  p**p. In the meantime, we controlled her diet and no longer gave her cheese and provided a lot of fruits. We also changed the usual white rice into brown rice. We tried the 2 m/l for almost 2 weeks. 


Since there was no result, we brought her to a pediatrician, Doctor B. Doc B explained to us how the digestion system works, intestine, fiber and when we asked him was it due to her diet? He said no. Apparently it was not true. It's partially due to diet as well. Doc B prescribed lactulose with 4 m/l dosage three times a day. The first day after using that dosage, her p**p was no longer as hard as before and she didn't suffer so much when p**ping. But after that, it went like before. She took 3 to 4 days to p**p. We tried that dosage for almost a month and still not satisfied because she still cried whenever she p**p. 

So we bring her to another pediatrician, doctor C. Doc C explained to us about everything. The diet, how the intestine works and prescribed us with lactulose with 5 m/l dosage (medicine dose is given based on weight). Aisyah drinks 100% breast milk so it is definitely not the milk case. I never heard any case baby got constipation due to not suitable breast milk. In fact, she's been drinking breast milk even before that constipation case. The doctor also explained to us if this dosage does not work, he will prescribed her with other medicine which is the liquid paraffin. We tried lactulose with 5 m/l dosage for about 2 weeks and increased her fiber intake (a lot of fiber in the form of green vegetables in her porridge). And the result? Nothing change. With Doc C, we also suspected it was due to Aisyah psychological thinking. Maybe she scared to p**p? We are not sure. 

So yesterday, we met again with Doc C. He gave us the liquid paraffin with 7.5 m/l dosage two times a day after meal and also provided to us referral letter to hospital. If Aisyah still does not p**p normally at the end of this week, she needs to be referred to the hospital. Why? Because they can provide other medicine which was not in his clinic (I'm not sure what medicine), admitted to be observed (this is weird since I'm the one who need to cook her food, right?), X-ray or maybe referred to child psychologist. The child psychologist will persuade her to p**p normally. He also asked us whether after I gave birth, the doctor gave the thyroid test. He explained normally after gave birth, the doctor will give the result test but apparently most of the doctor seems to forget. They did the test but forget to provide the result. I am so not sure about this. Might need to check Aisyah's book again. However, based on Doc C's observation, Aisyah should not have thyroid problem since there is no abnormality in her skin and she is a cheerful baby.

Hopefully there is good result by using the liquid paraffin. Really wish we does not have to go to the hospital. Amin. If need to see a child psychologist, I totally agree. 

Okay, that's all. Till then, Assalamualaikum.
