(WW 41) : Epic sleeping style by SN Jr


SN Jr, like Abg SN is one sleepy baby when we are travelling. I've shared Abg SN's sleeping pictures compilation in the entry  SLEEPY PASSENGGER

Here's SN Jr's sleeping picture complications that I've captured when we are travelling.

(1) In the stroller, while travelling



(2) In the stroller, on a train trip



(3) In a car seat, on a car journey

+- tak menyempat2 nak pakaikan seatbelt, dia dah tidur berguling2 -+


(4) In a baby bassinet, on a plane ride

+- walaupun pakai seatbelt, tetap nak golek2 sesuka hati -+


And I personally think, the most epic sleeping position by SN Jr would be this one.............

(5) On a plane-float in a swimming pool

+- gaya tidur tahap tertinggi, siap angkat kaki ke atas -+


Bet not many baby could strike such pose like SN jr did...bwahahahaha.


Psssstt : walaupun SN Jr kuat tidur masa jalan2, tapi kalau kat rumah budak kecik ini adalah sangat susah nak tidur....kene mengempeng sambil cium ketiak mommy baru boleh tidur haisyyyyyy.

Defying all odds

Salam

Being in the Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing under the Department of Aeronautical Engineering  means that most of the staff are guys. As for the Aeronautic department, there are only 3 ladies including me. To make things worse is that the other 2 ladies are on study-leave for the next 2-3 years which means that I will be the only working lady at the department right now..phewwww.


Don't get me wrong, I'm comfortable working around guys as I myself was raised with 5 boys in my sibling.. so I'm used to be surrounded by guys all day. The only concern that I have right now is regarding to my pumping session. 

To maintain the milk supply, I should pump at least 15 minutes for every 3 hours during the working hours. It's not a problem when I'm in the office but it does create a tiny little problem for me when I have to go outstation with those guys.


2 weeks ago, I was assigned to go to a meeting in KL with 4 other guys in the department. The journey from Batu Pahat - Putrajaya took 6 hours back and forth plus 1-2 hours of meeting session, which clearly means that it does interfere with my pumping session. I brought along the Medela Freestyle Breastpump and I was planning to pump when we stopped for solat

Unfortunately, my B was sending the signal that it can't stand the milk anymore so I should start pumping to avoid them from transforming me to be Pamela Anderson ... LOL. 

I have no other option than wearing my nursing cover and start pumping. Luckily I was sitting by myself in the last row of the Exora MPV; and luckily the sound of the breast pump was not that loud compared to the sound of air as the car accelerates through the highway. 


Those guys doesn't even had a slightest clue on what I am doing at the back row at all. One of them did turn at the back to check on me *whether I'm comfortable or not sitting at the back row*...and he thought I was feeling cold *he mistaken the nursing cover as blanket/shawl* ... and so he asked "ko sejuk ke weh?". I nodded religiously and couldn't even say any word when he 'help' to turn the aircond blower away from me LOL.

+- my colleagues who were in the car with me at that time. none of them noticed that I'm pumping inside the car -+


When I told this incident to my husband, he personally thought that it's a shameful thing to do. So I had to explain to him that no one noticed it, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. 

I guess other moms will agree with me that mommies can defy all odds and go to all extend into providing the best for their kids. As quoted by Marion C. Garretty  "Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible"

Psssttt : I hope my colleague wont read this entry, if not lain kali kalau kena pergi outstation dgn diorang..kantoi la pulak kan hahahah

Mimijumi bottle for the fussy little SN jr

Salam,

It has been almost 2 weeks that I started sending SN Jr to a nursery nearby the university. His teachers are having some difficulties to put him to sleep for an afternoon nap. He was sweating like no one's business, while 2 other babies at the nursery were having their sweet afternoon nap.

SN Jr like Abg SN is a 'hot' baby..by 'hot' here; I refer to easily sweating and in need of air condition 24/7..aigoooo. Thus, the only solution for his teacher to put him to sleep is to take off his clothes leaving only his diapers. Itu pun lenguh bahu gak lah teacher tawaf satu rumah tu nak bagi dia tidur....adeh, cobaaaaan.

Luckily he can be easily fed these days after couple of attempts of trying out different bottle. I do understand that it is hard for breastfed babies to drink from a bottle, thus I've tried my best to find the one that has nipples as the most similar to mom's teat. I've tried MAM, Avent, Tommy Tippee and Medela..but to no avail. 

+- some of the feeding bottles rejected by SN Jr -+


At last, I found Mimijumi bottle and thank Allah; it works wonders. Though it is quite pricey (RM68 for 120ml bottle, RM87 for 240ml bottle and RM34 for replacement nipple) ; but as long as my baby is happy..I'm happy too "apalah sangat harga botol tu kalau nak di bandingkan dengan kebahagiaann mu oh anak" *poyo mommy*.

+- mimijumi feeding bottle -+

Sudahlah harga nya mahal, bottle ni jugak susah sikit nak jumpa kat kedai. You can get it online at onebabyworld or head on to their respective store. Hari tu I beli kat QQ kids kat batu pahat ni, tapi semalam pergi dah out of stock pulak. Luckily we went to JB last week, ikut daddy yang kena attend workshop for accreditation thingy. So, mommy and both boys lepak2 kat dalam bilik hotel dan bila petang turun swimming kat pool eheh

+- melepak kat bilik je while daddy attending meeting -+

+- SN jr's first swimming pool experience. muka berkerut sebab mengantuk -+


Bila daddy ada break untuk dinner baru sempat keluar pergi FabulousMom stoe to buy this bottle. Check out the store yang jual mimijumi bottle ni here.

Well anyway, to other breastfed mom that are having difficulties on finding the perfect bottle for your baby, I would highly recommend this bottle. Thanks to the genius inventors of Mimijumi bottle, my fussy little baby can finally drink the expressed breastmilk using  bottle


Pssssttt : kalau tak jumpa botol ni hari tu, nampak gaya nya teachers kat nursery tu kena feed SN Jr guna syringe la kot huhuhuh.

Graduation ceremony in Japan

Salam u ollls,

Tora datang lagiii eh eh eh I muncul lagi...amboii rilek nampak kije sbg lecturer sampai boleh update blog regularly ehehhe. Takde makna rilek nye pon; tapi dah nama pun baru lapor diri, jadi belum dapat workload lagi. Infact bilik pun tak dapat lagi, menumpang kasih kat bilik incik hubby je minggu ni...jadi mari lah update blog dengan ceritera tertangguh sebelum2 ni.

Let's take a look at my graduation ceremony last week (26/03/2013). There were 2 sessions for the ceremony. The first session was held at Fukuoka Kokusai Center and the second session was held at the department in the university. 


+- before the ceremony begin -+


The first session at Fukuoka Kokusai Center started at 12.10 p.m for the post-graduate student. Earlier, before that, a graduation ceremony for undergraduate student was held at that venue at 9.50 a.m. We arrived at the hall by 12 p.m. I was supposed to sit on the ground floor with other students, but it will be difficult for hubby to handle both SNs so I decided to sit in the family area too with them. 

+- mak incik duduk kat seat family jetak duduk kat seat student kat ground floor -+


The thing about the graduation ceremony in Japan is that it wasn't as 'grand' as the one that we have experienced in Malaysia *jubah pun tak ada wehterpaksa mak incik import sendiri dari Malaysia ngeee*. The ceremony begins with a little speech by someone "important" (excuse me for that, I didn't know who was it as the ceremony was conducted solely in Japanese language).

+- MC -+

After that, 5 students who represent each faculty were given the scroll on the stage.......... And then, the ceremony finish!. That was it, only the representatives gets to go on the stage, as for other students...you'll get your certificate personally on the second session at your department. 

+- 5 representatives from each faculties -+


Pretty much, the formal graduation ceremony took about 40 minutes only. Kalau kat Malaysia, separuh hari tunggu dalam dewan tu ye dak? ekekekekThankfully it took only 40 minutes as my husband and I were having some difficulties to handle both SNs. Abg SN wanted to run here and there on the stairs while SN Jr wanted to be fed and finally fell asleep half way through the ceremony ehehe.

+- Abg SN muka bengang baru lepas kena marah dengan mommy sebab main lari2 kat tangga, SN jr pulak bantai tidur berdengkur dengkur -+


We took the chance to snap a few photos outside of the hall before heading to Ito campus, Kyushu University for the 2nd session. 

 
+- SN's family inside the hall -+

+- yours truly outside of the hall -+

+- Both SNs malas layan mommy & daddy ajak bergambar -+

+- posing koya by yours truly depan hall; am wearing Jovian rtw size M sebab hubby tak bagi beli yang size XS takut ketat sangat kat pinggang -+


The 2nd session was held at the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics Engineering for me as I was under that department of study. For this session, PhD students were seated on the first line and then followed by the master students. I was seated at the 3rd row. 


+- sebelah kanan tu professors in our department -+


Hubby had to handle both SNs on his own so that explained why there's no proper pic of me receiving the scroll. Luckily this session was also short and fast..it took about 15 minutes only...and then we're done!. Phew, I'm glad it's over as SN Jr started to cry already by the time the ceremony was over.

+- yours truly di kelilingi kumbang2 berkot hitam ngeee -+

+- gambar blur..tu pun hubby snap lepas dah dapat certificate. haiyohh, blur pun tetap nak tepek gak lah ahaha -+


There was a simple party after the session but I decided not to join the party as both SNs are getting bored with all the formalities of mommy's graduation ceremony. 

+- sempat posing dengan SV je, lepas tu Abg SN sibuk2 nak pegang cert & scroll mommy -+


So we decided to have our own outdoor photography at the campus, but SN Jr had already fallen asleep.. thus explains what the stroller are doing in the pic below hahaha.

+- SN Jr tengah sedap mentidurkan diri dalam stroller, Abg SN pulak pose 'oppa gangnam style' -+

Abg SN was giving full cooperation for the photo shoot as he enjoys wearing the smart outfit that he addressed as 'baju oppa gangnam style' LOL. He even poses like Psy in those photos. Sigh, I wonder where he watches the oppa Gangnam style video as I never showed it to him. I guess when things become viral, it is hard for parents to control what their child was viewing these days with all the technology within the fingertips.

+- angin bertiup kencang masa ni, tapi sengih tetap sengih ngeee -+

+- last pose kat batu bersurat Kyushu University eheh -+


We called the day off with a simple celebration at Baskin Robbins AEON Gakkentoshi. No bouquet of flowers as a graduation present or any chocolates like the one that we'll receive in Malaysia *kononnya lagi banyak pegang bunga, lagi nampak macam ramai peminat..ececececeh*.

+- nyam nyam nyam...dapnyer dapnyer -+

+- kampaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii -+

I guess the best gift for this graduation is SN Jr. He was the best gift that I've received a few months before I finish my study. Despite all the hardships and days of living apart with him after he was born, I finally was able to receive my PhD certificate together with the greatest certificate as a mother of 2 sons *wink wink*. 

+- budak kecik manja kededek yang geram nak di cobettttt pipi -+


Psssttt : Walaupun sejuk, nak jangok punya pasal...I gigih gak pakai baju kurung sampai sanggup pakai heat t-shirt dengan leg warmer kat dalam tu ekekeke.
