Cheerio, u realli so bored till like tat ah. I shall join u. I have been clicking in and out of this site since morning. Its Friday and yet it seems like such a long long day. Actually hor, I dont noe how to remove it. I think probably the administrator would noe.
u taking full time degree?
acutally, its not good to last minute study because you will burn out.
advertising need not memorise so many things so long u understand the theory. but you must give expamples to support your theory, then got more points.
my in-law heard us talking about carrot cake and she thought is from market. she offer to buy for me for breakfast. luckily we clearify with her otherwise i dunno what to do with that packet of "black black Cai Tao Kuay".
i dun dare to eat "cai tao kuay" cos its very very fattening.
recently i begin to like going to JB to shop and eat, all started when a good fren drove us in and had a real fun day, just eat and buy eat and buy... the YAMI yogurt is so much cheaper there.. and City Square is quite a good place to shop loh
visited a fren who gave birth a week ago. asked her how's her confinement food.. she said eat seasme chicken for 1st 2 weeks then 3rd week onwards, can add in veg and fish...
wah... dun think i can eat the same stuff, day in and day out. when i asked is baby crying louder now, cos 2nd day after delivery, went to see her, baby cried, hardly any sound. she immediately shhh..said, cannot say such things...
ah... so do u all believe all these? Like no shower for confinement month, can only eat seasme chicken, and cannot say baby cute or very "kuai"...
Cheerios, Im a big fan of Patissier too. But I like their green tea selection and the tofu cake which is very unique and different, and super tasty. Hmm.. JB, its cheap and fun to go, if u go on the weekdays, can go to Holiday Plaza, the top level have so many shops tat does mani and pedi and they r super cheap on weekdays coz no one goes during weekdays.
Twin fairy, its superstition. A lot of things cannot be said in front of the baby when they r juz born. Better be safe than sori.
err personaly i'm not those 'pantang' type..in fact i think all those r BS lah...hahaha
most ppl will go 'bu ting lao ren yan chi kui zai yan qian' n hav the 'beta dun take the risk' mentality..but seriously lah..its only the chinese mostly thats into all such things which r so nonsensical..if it can b explained scientifically i will believe n practice but none otherwise
Serene, u'll say tat now, till something happens, then ppl will start to believe. For me as long as its not the extreme, I'll follow. Maybe I'm considered more pantang. Even my colleagues also say Im rather pantang for such a young person.
PinkyDy nah i just look at solid examples like my boss, angmos like them who recently gave birth n wives not doing anything silly like chinese ppl, convince me all the things our mothers n grandmothers said r nonsensical
my other fren said when her baby borned, also cried softly.. then as baby got older, crying got louder..
logically, is normal for newborn baby to cry softly cos just borned, not much strength.. but as baby get older, of course, more strength, crying also get louder... dun think is becos of a remark, the baby suddenly will cry louder..
think when is my turn... most old folks will be angry with me...
and.. really cannot shower??? wah... weather so hot, cannot shower... hmmm... when breastfeeding time... isnt it not hygienic?!
its so unhygiene not to bath for one whole mth. I bath everyday and wash my hair every alternate days. As for food, actually it taste very good (cooked by my mum).
Degree of Pantangness depends on individual. my mum very patang, hence cannot say the bb good or bad. For eg, my nephew cannot come in contact with pregnant women or else he will be very cranky the whole day. My sis dun believe it initially, after few encounters, she have no choice but to believe as my nephew crankiness almost drove her crazy. From then on, she is more alert on this.
Actually its realli cannot shower. Becoz if u do, 'wind' will go into ur body. When woman get older, they will have problems with their bones and joints. So no choice. Tat's y they have invented the dry shampoo and all those dry stuff. Its in powder form so its suppose to absorbe sweat and all tat. Before breastfeeding, can use wet ones to wipe clean first mah. But must dry it immediately before breastfeeding lah.
And I noe now actually can shower already but must use this herbs in hot water and shower very fast, like splash over ur body and out of u go. dry ur body and blow dry ur hair immediately so tat no 'wind' will travel into ur body and get trapped.
So for the better of ur health and body in the future, 1 month is no choice.
ya, used the special herbs for bath. Juz bath quickly, after tat take a hot drink and then lie in bed with the cover loh.
Actually for the 1st 2 wks of confinement, will sweat like nobody business (think during labour, was given drip, hence water retention after tat), hence it make sense to bath everyday, especially i breastfeed my ds. Also, i massage for 7 days after delivery, hence i need to "wash" away the herbs everyday before i carried my ds. BB's skin are very sensitive, hence image "exposing" them to a "dirty" mummy.... wait the face also got red spots....
so, those going to give birth soon, do prepare some hankies on standby as will need it.
actually those powder shampoo is not very good, will "absorb" the oilyness to a certain degree. I still feel that washing hair during confinement is a must .... or else cannot imagine the state of the hair by the end of the confinment.
Initially my mum also dun allow me to wash hair, can bath only, but i fight for it and with the help of my sis, we manage to persuade my mum loh.
