Confinement the Premium Beautiful Way – Part 2

After 2 weeks of confinement, I am loving the result of wearing the Premium Beautiful Waist Nipper as an alternative to the traditional bengkung.

The result can be seen as early as 2 days after wearing the waist nipper, that is Day #5 post-delivery (as you can only start wearing the waist nipper on Day 3 for those who give birth naturally).  Even the kakak that massaged me told me that my tummy and womb looks as if I had worn the traditional bengkung.  She gave me her seal of approval of course… My mom also had given her seal of approval, though she is quiet a traditionalist when it comes to confinement do’s and don’ts.

As for the weight loss issue, I am slowly trying to shed all the baby fats.  My last weight during pregnancy was 75.2kg and I am now down to 67kg.  I have 10 more kgs to go and let’s see if I can achieve my pre-pregnancy weight by the end of confinement period… Insyaallah…

Why I Am Doing What I Am Doing…

When I was growing up, both my parents were at the heights of their career.  Dad was busy travelling the world, fulfilling his duty as the country’s liaison on whatever committee that he was in, besides going back to his constituency, to fulfill his role as the elected representative.  Mom was busy crunching numbers for one of the largest shipping company in the country, besides making sure that all her 3 kids’ needs are being met.

I am not complaining that they are too busy to spend time with their kids.  In fact, I am thankful that they have done what they did, as I would not be the person that I am today without them.  They have thought me to work hard in order to get the things that I want.  They have also provided me with the best education that I can ask for.  They have never objected the choices that I have made in life.  In fact, they have provided me with the guidance that I needed to succeed.

With that, I am truly grateful to have such great parents.

Now, I am trying to become one too.

Since Noah was born, I have been missing many of his development milestones due to work.  I had to leave him for almost a week when he was only 6 months old for a business trip to Istanbul.  It really broke my heart to leave my baby at that point of time, especially when he was still fully breastfeeding.  That was the turning point for me as a mother.  After that I had promised myself to never put work before my family’s needs.

However, it was really hard to juggle between the pursuit to become a successful career woman and a great mom.  I again failed to stand by my promise to myself and had succumbed to the career demand.

2 more years had passed and I am still holding the same position in my career (though in a different organisation).  I am still not earning as much as I think I am worth (call me ungrateful, but I seriously think that I am worth more than what I am earning currently).  Despite being a specialist in the area that I am in, and saving the company thousands (or even millions) of ringgit in consultancy fees (they have reduced the need to hire consultants since I joined), I have yet to receive THE recognition that I think I deserve.

Hence, I am back to the point where I have sacrificed my time for my family over something that is not truly rewarding.

That is the reason why I have embarked on this Premium Beautiful journey.  Charting my way on the road less travelled.  It has been 8 great months and the reward is really fulfilling.

Even our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w once said that 90% of our rezeki comes from business (90 % rezeki yang Allah berikan kepada manusia di dunia ini, adalah melalui perniagaan).

In this business, you get what you earn.  The more effort you put into the business, the higher the return.  You are your own boss.  You determine your own income.  Hence, there is no more issue of not getting what you deserve as you determine your own destiny.

In my pursuit to become a Mumpreneur, I am giving my everything right now to ensure that I will be able to spend more time with Noah and his soon to be born brother (insyaAllah) in the near future.  I am determined to make sure that I will be available to send and pick-up Noah to and from his pre-school  on a daily basis, have every meal with him, and give him and his brother all the attention that they need and deserve.  Also, I am determined to give them the best that they deserve.

I am auwed by other successful Mumpreneurs in the Green Leader Group such as the great leader, CDM Hanis Haizi (mother of 2) and CDM Salha Zain (mother of 2) who had managed to juggle between being a great business women and super mom.  They are such inspirational Mumpreneurs.

With God’s willing, I pray that I would be able to follow their footsteps real soon.

My all time favourite poem from a great poet that had been my inspiration throughout my journey in life since back in 2006.

The Road Not Taken  by Robert Frost

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Premium Beautiful Testimonial: Back Pain and Slipped Disc

Time for me to share another greatness of Premium Beautiful

Suffering from back pain or slipped disc?

These are some of the testimonials from Premium Beautiful customers and agents that had suffered from back pain and slipped disc…

From CDM Salha Zain:

Semalam i berjumpe dengan sorang customer pb yang memang dah lame suffer back pain..dulu my customer ni sampai pakai wheel chair..memang back pain yang severe…sampai husband pun dah taktau nk buat cane lagi…bertahun2 jugak beliau suffer ngan back pain ni…and my customer ni cakap, yang buatkan die lagi sedih bile die nk dapat nk dukung anak beliau…

Alhamdulillah, baru after sebulan je pakai pb…back pain makin lame makin hilang and the happiest moment die cakap bile dia boleh dukung baby die sambil jalan and siap die boleh bendkan badan and die tak rase sakit lagi…

From Norshidah Kamarudin:

Mengimbau sejarah kesakitanku..6 months before my wedding…!!! Just imagine with loads of wedding stuff to settle on my own and it happened when I was ironing my shirt (nak pegi keje masa kat umah mak) then tetibe terbersin and I ter-twist pinggangku ala2 nak menyabit gitu..alah macam orang main golf tengah nk swing kayu golf dia tu kan..haa gitulah mak terbersin penuh aksi uols..!! ambik ko pastu terus takleh bergerakkkk…!!!! beraksi sangatkan…?! Sepanjang2 kesakitan tu kene tunggu adikku balik dari kerja utk hantar ke hospital time tu.

sampai kat Hospital Columbia Asia Seremban terus masuk emergency sebab tak boleh nak jalan..nak turun ketepun berdukung sebab tak boleh nak luruskan badan langsung…imagine…!!! terasa OKU jap..lagi2 kene duduk kat wheelchair..aduss malu mak!… time paling hazab masa nurse mintak naik atas bed sebab nak cucuk painkiller terus kt lower back tuh coz I was crying and crying everytime nak bergerak..haruslah admit ke ward kan..!! after siap xray then MRI then blood test n blablabla of testing..I was diagnosed having sciatica at L5S1 then di-upgrade as disc herniation ..ape kebendanya nombor tuh…? its the location of the disc yang affected..so mine kat lumbar spine..!!! hazabbb

So I did my reasearch on this pain and refer few of orthopedic and surgeon coz doctor yang ni cakap tak yah operate, yang ni suh replace disc to artificial disc lah, ada doc suh remove the disc terus pun ada…!!! Operate is my last resort..kalau dah tak boleh jalan due to this pain then I have to surrender..mana tak takot..? my disc yg affected tu sangat dekat dgn nerve okeyy.. if stupid mistakes happened masa tengah operation tu could make me paralyzed…? ohh nonononno..katelah hape doc,saya takmo takmo takmo…risky! takotttt..!!

But I didn’t duduk diam2 dan berserah pasrah dah nasib ku kene disc problem ni..It is not a minor pain ye korang…!! when its strikes that’s it…!! mulalah nak gerak sikit pun SAKIT….!!!dengan sengal2 yg tak tau nak buat camane utk kurangkan..been thru loads of treatments such as the common physiotherapy sessions yang akan letak kita on machine yang ada vibration effect utk lancarkan aliran darah (tak ingat nama machine tu dah) then put on InfraRed machine kaler merah yang panas diarahkan ke area yang kita sakit and mesti buat some exercise utk kuatkan muscle on every session..

tell u the truth, the pain just gone for few hours then it comes back..!! I don’t know about others, but to me it doesn’t work..tak ingat dah berapa lama i’m on physio treatment..ada berbulan2 jugak sampai satu tahap rasa penat ulang alik pegi hospital je then sampai rumah, sakit balik..!serupa tak yah pegipun takpe..dahla mahal per sessionkan..nasiblah company cover physioterapi..kalu tak hancuss bajet ahkak kikiki..so i try pulak urut2 traditional..ada yang melegakan tak kurang jugak yang menambahkan sakit sampai berhari2 nak jalanpun macam orang tua okeyyy..urghhhh my life was horrible time tuh…!!!!!

untillah I found about this Premium Beautiful corset can loose weight and also relieved back pain….!!! waaaaaaa i need this i need this…!! Maka tanpa pikir panjang, I just bought coz my aim is nak kuruskan badan, kurangkan berat utk treat my slipped disc issue nih…tak sesabar dah..!!

almost a year dah pakai premium beautiful corset and this is how i feel:-

  • mula2 pakai rasa sakit sket tapi CDM Mai cakap that’s normal sebab FIR tengah bertindak dgn badan kita and sedang meng-adjust tulang belakang kita..so haruss mak bersabarrrr..!!
  • dalam material Premium Beautiful dah disulam dengan Far Infra Red Rays (FIR)..ibarat mak mengangkut machine infrared tu kat belakang..tak ke melegakan tuh? I think the FIR yg betul2 melegakan back pain nih..seriously!!

  • postur badan semakin improve..tak bongkok lagi..Alhamdulillah
  • sengal2 kat belakang bahagian atas berkurangan sesangat…kalau tak memang suke sesengal sesukes hatis dia jessss..!!! esp kat part tulang belikat tu..fuhhhh memang lega…!!

With 2k that I’ve spent investing buying Premium Beautiful sangatlah berbaloi2 kalau nak dibandingkan dengan Back Pain that I’ve gone thru and RM15k++ spent to treatment yg temporary relieve saje..corset ni kita pakai at least 8 jam sehari so setiap kali pakai, kita boleh treat our back pain, darah sentiasa lancar and kita boleh protect tulang belakang from further injuries..Slimming is BONUS from wearing it 8 hours consistently daily..!! best kan best kan…???!!!!

Strawberry Milkshake – such a beautiful pleasure….

I have been craving for strawberry milkshake since I got pregnant.  However, it seems that not all McDonalds sells them anymore…

I used to walk all the way to Carl’s Jnr in Pavilion just to satisfy my cravings… Luckily their strawberry milkshake is good… Or shall I say, gooooooooooooood….  🙂

Since it is the fasting month and I am getting heavier by the day, walking to Pavilion just to get a cup of strawberry milkshake is no longer an option for me.  Hence, I’ve been searching high and low for a cup of a delicious strawberry milkshake.

After googling for places that sells them, I actually found the recipe to make them instead!

Made them for iftar today and now both mummy and baby are satisfied…

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

Fresh Strawberries & Strawberry Syrup (optional)

Mix them all together in the blender

And enjoy….!

This is what I call beautiful pleasure….
