A Day at Clover Ward


Little miss Iris was admitted again on last thursday night. After three rounds of nebulizer treatment at A&E, doctor sent her to Clover ward, the children centre of King George Hospital. Though her oxygen level was progressed to normal but her blood pressure was still rather high hence close monitoring was needed and obviously not safe to go back home.

It was expected therefore we were ready and accept the decision. The overnight bag was also brought in advance with some dry food, thermos and clothes for Iris and me. So i managed to feed all of us a homecooked chicken porridge during dinner time at A&E..

Clover ward was already deserted and quiet when we came in. All the nurses who worked during night shift were so warm and friendly, so we felt ease and comfortable. And as soon after hubby go home and Iris got her next session of nebulizer in the ward, she quickly dozed off to Lalaland. Though in the nighy she was being checked every hour by nurse and once by Paed at 4am, she didnt stir at all. Poor my lil girl, she was really exhausted. I know because i have athma too..:(

The next day, she seemed herself being chatty and quickly ask me when she can go home. Huhu i said she will soon but have to wait until doctors come and check on her again. She took it very well..but it's hard on me..:(

After breakfast (cocopops + milk, toasts + blackcurrant juice for both of us), the new nurse (morning shift) came and brought her Hello Kitty picture in quite big size with pencil colours! Iris was so excited as Hello Kitty is her favourite character therefore that had kept her busy for a while. Yes only for a while because when she's tired she asked me to colour the rest. Hihi.

After colouring, she wanted to do some crafts. The paper and the crafts accessories were also given earlier with Hello Kitty pic and the pencil colours. Really, Clover ward and all the staffs are so amazing to their patients and us the parents. Kudos to them! :)

When hubby and Zafri came in after sent Zahin to school, Iris was still into the craft. But after seeing his lil bro playing outside at the playground which was just outside the ward, she wished to join him too. Luckily not long after she was being switched to inhaler from nebulizer therefore she was allowed to play at the playground but not for too long..because she was still not fit enough. Then we brought two of them to the playroom instead..until lunchtime. We were served fish and chips, yummy! :)

Later at 4pm, hubby came back to after fetched Zahin from school the same time when doctor came for the third time that day and this time we had a good news that Iris was discharged. Alhamdulillah...the doctors knew Iris wanted to go home badly after asking her so they let her. Actually, they didnt think she's well enough to go home but i guess they did for the sake of Iris's happiness..we knew from their concern and they asked us to bring her back immediately if she's no any better with her new and higher dose meds prescribed.

But up to date, she's still recuperating slowly but active though. Alhamdulillah. We kept her at home today, as she still have cough and cold. It is really cold outside but we have no choice to send her to school tomorrow. :( but In shaa Allah..we pray that she gets better as soon as possible. Amin!

Ps. Now me plak down with cold and fever. :(

Laduree Macarons at Harrods


The first time i tried macarons when we were in Paris in 2011. (Trips With my parents :)) The mini macarons were bought at one of the cafe at Metro station.

Honestly, i like the packaging more than its taste. It's too sweet for me! Huhu.

But then i heard about Laduree. Their macarons are so hit and so famous! At first i still had no dire to try it eversince my first trial..but not until recently.

I had tagged hubby to his uni but i ended up go to Harrods instead. Kikiki.

Anyway, nothing much i could afford except for a coffee expresso at Harrods Food Hall. ;P then since i have ample time i went for macarons-hunting! ;)

Thankfully, I finally found the shop. At last..dah nak blk Msia baru jumpa Laduree..hehe so apalagi, i quickly went inside the famous shop in the world..tapau la 8-box of mix flavoured macs, include salted caramel, vanilla, mint, pistachio, and chocolates in mini size..saje nk try dulu mana yg best. For me, i love vanilla and salted caramel most! The sweetness was just nice. ;)

Afterwards i walked from Harrods to Hubby's campus at South Kensington within 15 minutes..when hubby finished his work we went home to fetch Eins at school. The Eins also love the macs so in shaa Allah we can buy again next time. :)

Overall, i've truly enjoyed the outing, hence i did it again the next two days..and will def do it again soon in shaa Allah. Zafri pon sgt well-behaved, baik je duduk dlm stroller dia. ;) once dah wean off from breastfeeding senang, Bila letih dia tido je, bila dia bangun ummi kasi dia mkn snack..hihihihi.

Eidul Adha 1434H

Despite hubby's not feeling well because of cavity, we were blessed to have bffs aka neighbours who came to celebrate eid with us. :)

I just managed to make pulut kuning, kerutuk daging, ayam and some currypuffs while our honourable guests brought us yummilicious Nasi Impit, Rendang and lontong. So nice of them! :)

The kids really enjoyed themselves as well! Two hours meeting was just not enough to catching up. They were so sad when bidding goodbye to each other. What to do, they are schooling on the next day.

In shaa Allah we'll be seeing them again soon. We really thank them for coming, and it had totally cheered us up and felt the raya mood. :)

Lastly, hope still not to late to wish everyone eid mubarak.

Till then wassalam.

Fingers Painting


Hi. I dedicate this post to whom who misses us! Hehe..

It's been ages to try fingers painting with the kids but i'd kept postponing it since i can't stand the mess. ;p

So till recently, i've bought the crayola washable colours and some other utencils such as glitter shaker for this activity. As expected, the kids really enjoyed themselves...they seemed didn't want to stop once they got started! Hehe

They got their playroom back too! ;) so the activity was held there..after three rounds, i had to stop them because it's already past their bedtime. But i saw their happy face
..;) after tidying and washing up, they put all their fingerworks up on the wall too..walla..hehe. And as soon as they woke up the next day, they went straight to their playroom..and worked again! :D

Anyway, it's already Autumn here. ;) So it's pretty cold. 8 degrees C, Brr! We are trying our best to keep healthy. In shaa Allah.

Till then, Have a nice weekend, everyone! :)
