Okay,well i have a lot to share, lets start with how Raisa finally decided to see the world...ooo wait.. she was actually force to see the world..that's more like it..hehe.
As scheduled, I was induced for labor on Friday(23Oct) afternoon at 2pm. I waited for a few hours, there was no pain at all.My gut feeling strongly tells me that its gonna be long hours of waiting. Ive learnt from few friends that force labor requires extra patience because it can takes more than 24 hours to dilate...but thank god my gut feeling was wrong!!My water bag broke at 7.30pm. and labor room..here i come!!
At 7.45 pm I dilated around 5 cms and still there was no pain which construed me to not opt for epidural.(what was I thinking????).
At 9pm, i was extremely excited..WHY?...becoz i get to watch 'Nurkasih'.20 minutes later..i started to feel the CONTRACTION. The pain was greater and greater. I was adviced to take the gas, which claimed to ease the pain, but hell NO..not only i can still feel the pain, i was drowsy, i got high and was completely not myself!I cant control myself, I was screaming...I saw my hubby's face..like 10 faces.It was a nightmare. My prince charming came to the rescue, my hubby managed to calm me down and after the 3rd push attempted..Raisa has officially ready to meet her mommy and daddy.The time was 9.53pm.After 3 days and 2 nights stay at Ampang Puteri Premier Ward, my gynecologist has finally set us free, 'we're going home Raisa!Yeay....
....but not for long. Raisa suddenly turned yellow n it was a red alarm for us.She was confirmed jaundice at 15.9 n had to be warded.I was almost crazy to be separated from her for 3 long days.I cried and cried but thank god Ampang Puteri Hosp is only 5 mins from home. Wut i did was, I stayed at the hospital from as early as 7 am till as late as 1 am. It was painful for me to watch my baby undergoing the photo therapy treatment.Fortunately, it was not for long. Raisa's jaundice reading was very positive that it has decreased tremendously from15.9 to 9.6 on the 2nd day and followed by 7.3 on the 3rd day. Raisa is finally back in my arms again. Syukur Alhamdulillah.
Sleepless nights, joyful tears, joyless tears...a new chapter in life begins. A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.
To Baby Raisa, Be a good daughter and always know, that no matter what happened, mommy will love you endlessly.

Anyway, My baby is still happily staying in my tummy...still enjoying all the nice food mummy is taking. Mommy is still waiting honey, but now, impatiently!
This gorgeous centerpiece is perfectly done by Yes. The baby shower favors, as u can see, the big milk bottle is actually a coins container decorated with ribbons and 'Its a Baby Boy' Hallmark cards are prepared by me.
I so love the purple n white helium balloons..Yes personally chose them since purple has always been Veen's fave color...and who would have ever thought that she would dress in purple top on that day?such a coincidence..she really did surprised us...aww so glad everything fell into places PERFECTLY!
The venue and food selection were done by me. The venue selection was basically based on the location, the coolest cafe that is the nearest to Ampang Putri Hospital, just incase if any emergency, u know what i mean ;). As for the food, I chose a bit of this and that, just to have varieties and the food are YUMMERS!! From left is steak sandwiches and on the right hand side is Peking Duck Crepe. The middle dish is my fave desert, "put it here,put it here"...hehe..yeah my Eton Mass..yummieee
Menu of the day:
Appetizer come main course
2 x Peking Duck Crepe
3 x steak sandwiches
3 x Baked Choc Pudding
2 x Eton Mass
All served in one go. And hey we managed to finished them all..hehe..its not a problem when u have 3 pregnant ladies, veen(9 months), cat(4 months +) & i(9 months +) in the house....we eat while we can!!
What most important is to make my dear friend Veen, happy!
"Veen, U have been so dear to me all these years and u deserve all the happiness in this world.Cant wait to see your cute lil' boy.Love you lots babe!Hugs**"
p/s: Thanks Yes, Cat & Naj for such a blast Sunday!

One thing for sure, I just got to share with you on what had happened last Sunday. I was asleep the whole afternoon after buying a bouquet of pink roses for my bestfriend, Veen. She's throwing a birthday party in the evening at Delicious Marc Service Residence. My hubby woke me up a few times becoz he knew that no matter what, i really cannot missed this one. And so i finally woke up, and at that time my hubby was all ready and set to go. I rushed myself and we left home at about 5 pm. The party was supposed to start at 5pm. I was late!
As i was there, suddenly Veen came to me and said
" Iza,welcome to your Baby Shower Party"
Hubby was smiling and so does everyone. I was so shock! Speechless..amazed with the beautiful decor...just like what I've always imagined..small crowd, intimate moment with my loved ones. Veen has been planning this for almost a month, and my hubby n Qme have been conspiring with her all the while. Im so touched.
Here's the Party favour made from love. A personalised mix cd with songs for mommies, daddies, aunties, uncles and babies, a teddy bear keychain, personalised fridge magnet "Iza & Yad's Baby Shower" and "It's a Boy", 'It's a Girl" peppermint candies :) Perfectly done by VeenWith my BFFs.....Veen, Myself and Qme :) Thank you Veen for being so dear to me. We have been through a lot together..10 years of true friendship. To My darling hubby thank you for never failed to make me happy. To Qme thank you for always being there for me no matter how far you are..and to Yes, thank you for being so sweet & kind to me.
Mummy and Baby(in my tummy) are both very happy and we felt so blessed to have such wonderful people around us.

Kumeniti awan yang kelabu
Kutempuhi lorong yang berliku
Mencari sinar yang menerangi
Kupercaya nanti suatu masa
Sang suria kan menyinar jua
Membawa harapan yang menggunung
Engkau tiba bagaikan pelangi
Tak bercahya namun kau berseri
Tapi cukup menghiburkan
Seharian waktu bersamamu
Tak terasa saat yang berlalu
Bagai pelangi petang
kau kan pasti

May 2009, the month begin with me getting the additional number or AGE or +1 to be exact I turned 29 but my 29 bday was not as fancy as my previous years. No Hooha celebration..Just me n hubby having dinner n spend some quality time together..it was lovely.Thanks Hun!and.. yeah have a great bday lunch with Veen. Thanks for d lovely flowers.Love it!
May has been such a busy month for me...I'm working on 3 HR major projects and alhamdulillah all went well..we have recently successfully commenced teleworking in TM and I'm so delighted that my boss was tremendously satisfied with my work that he thinks that i deserve to have a rest for a week..can u believe it...yeay..and yes i am on leave until next Wednesday.
May I..Everyone..introduce you to YBhg Dato Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar, the Chief of Human Capital Officer of TM. He was formerly from Shell and this is Dato' giving an opening remarks during the commencement of teleworking in TM.The fat lady at the rostrum..that was me..emceeing!May has also been a horrified month when i had a very bad or should i call it the greatest pain of toothache..urghh..just imagine..i was emceeing an event live broadcast nationwide..while me having such pain of toothache, but still manage to smile, pretending everything was OK.At that point of time, i wish i can have a pain killer but NO No No..preggers can only prescribe paracetamol which doest help at all.
May all the pain dissapear...thank god my suffering moment ends when i finally decided to go to dentist to pull my tooth out. And..arghhh...NO!!it was even more painful..and i thought it will all soon heal but YES alhamdulillah..come the second day, i can now smile..becoz I'm okay now!alhamdulillah. Syukran Syukran
May was such a happening month..packed with celebrations, Mothers day, my mom's bday, my dad's bday, teachers day, youth day.. And wow sedar tak sedar its another half way to go for me to become a mommy..insyaallah. Amin
p/s:will upload pics soon..where on earth is my camera cable??hmm

I am 6 weeks pregnant :) My baby is still very small, at this stage my baby's heart is no bigger than a poppy seed but has now begun beating. I almost had a tear falling, after 1 year and a half waiting, finally me n my hubby get to experience the 1st moment listening to ur baby's heartbeating. It was a remarkable feeling.Syukur Alhamdulillah.
During the first trimester, I have to be extra careful. No more heels, no more eat everything i want, no more hoo haa..hehe..i spend most of the time talking to my baby, reading lots of academical books, reciting Quran and even put on my baby bump with earpiece of my digital quran, so that my baby can listen to Al Quran very much clearly.
I have started experiencing some very common signs of pregnancy but thank god no vomitting..oh yeah..no.. only once..i cant stand the smell of durian.i vomitted and i found it hard to believe..i was a hantu durian n now i cant even stand the smell..weird huh?
Another not so good sign is i experienced some spotting. I went straight to Ampang Putri ER and fortunately my gyne, Dato' Dr Ashar was still around. According to him, light bleeding or spotting during pregnancy - particularly during the first three months - is fairly common. But its always good to detect early. I was given an anti-abort injection + some other medications and a week mc. I need a lot of rest.
An advice from a fren really motivated me. She said i should take it as a challenge. Be positive and insyallah u'll go through this. Yeah, i know i can do this, Insyallah, God's willing everything will smooth sail until the day i become a mommy. Segalanya merupakan ketentuan Tuhan.Aku redha.
Dear friends, please pray for me that everything will goes well as planned.Amin.

Unlike past years, this year around we chose to have the celebration with our family at our home :) My darling hubby was pretty shock (happy shock off course) the moment he saw his bday cake. Yes!mission accomplished! Only god knows the trouble i have gone through just to get the big smile on his face. It was not so the trouble la..hehe..wut i did was i went to almost 6 bakeries to get the exact cake that i wanted and finally Secret Recipe managed to convince me. Surprisingly they even offered me a very reasonable price . So i chose Secret Receipe and yes i am very satisfied. The funny part was that I even received compliments from them..believe it or not they said that my cake was the coolest cake ever.Waaa..they hv got to be kidding..LOL! They even took some photos of my cake for sample..i should have be getting more discount right? But i was too happy that i dont even bother to ask..hehe..
So here's how the cake looks like..what do u think?
