Setsubun 節分
★2017/02/06 13:55

While most of my friends were celebrating Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year), getting fat eating New year’s feast and snacks with all their might, I was here with my boys were having peaceful days…wondering when can we too getting fat with mom’s cooking, lousang, kuih kapek, etc!!

Anyways, in Japan, we had Setsubun 節分 on the 3rd Feb, literally means a  seasonal division, which also means winter is ending and spring is coming!!
People here usually celebrate this day by performing “mamemaki” 豆まき, throwing beans to cleanse away all the evil spirits (bad luck or so) from the former year, inviting good lucks to the coming year!

Throwing beans at Setsubun 豆まき

It’s like a new start! A festival that was thought of as a sort of New Year’s Eve previously in the Lunar calendar.

Evil out lucks in! 鬼は外、福は内〜
The familiar characters during this festival.
Left: 福の神 Fuku, the God that brings luck
Right: 鬼 Oni, the Devil that brings bad luck.

And so, everywhere was playing their role on throwing beans! f_been.gif

Made a 'Oni'mask at kindergarten 節分、幼稚園で鬼のお面作った〜In the kindergarten, they made an ‘Oni’ mask, and did the ‘beans throwing’!

Making the Setsubun beans box 節分、豆箱作りAt home, we made a beans box from a milk pack..

The birth ☆
★2016/07/19 09:50

I felt my pregnancy with Little-big-boss Kta was fast.

I was so busy with our moving to a new place and all the preparation for Little-big-boss Uto kindergarten admission that I felt like I didn’t have enough time to enjoy my maternity period or feeling the wonders of my moving tummy..face3_kao20.gif

Somehow, Little-big-boss Uto enjoyed mommy’s baby bump h_heart09.gif

When I ask Little-big-boss Uto, “There would be no more baby bump when baby is out.”
He would then say, “Mommy, get back the baby bump again!, I want 10 babies!” (counting fingers..) face2_coldsweats01.gif

Meet my new Little-Big-Boss ☆
★2016/06/18 10:41

When I knew that I was pregnant, needless to say, I was super excited a2_up2.gif a2_up2.gif a2_up2.gif

How I wished to tell everyone the good news, just like anyone would do.

Even after I’ve got through my first trimester, a stable stage during pregnancy, I was still reluctant to get this news to public.., even to my friends..

Unlike my first pregnancy, which went all public with overly excitement us, who did not think much of any circumstances that might occurred..face2_catface.gif

What I wanted to reveal is, exactly one year before I knew I was pregnant with my new Little-big-boss, I was pregnantf_been.gif

2nd pregnancy - miscarriage

A pic from year 2014 September

But a miscarriage..
I felt like I was brought up high to the sky when I got a “line” on the pregnancy test, and being slammed back down to the bottom of the earth  when the doc told me that this baby is not likely to be growing inside my tummy..

There was no heartbeat detected on my 7 weeks checkup..face2_weep.gif

This miscarriage was really an experience for me. A valued one.

I was shocked and sad, but not extremely.

I did my research and knew that, especially for an early miscarriage, it was not an accident, nor a fault from the outside or inside. It was a coincidence.

It was due to chromosomal abnormality. A cause that is biologically natural that would occurred to anyone, even if you are a completely healthy person.

It was said that in 10 pregnancies, there is a very high percentage that one pregnancy will end up on a miscarriage of chromosomal abnormality..
Just that I got it on my second pregnancy..face2_despair.gif (kinda? face3_kao20.gif)

It is not a rare case.

To think of me myself is a living being, this miscarriage is just a natural occurrence. Not a thing that can be prevented.
In fact, I considered this as lucky, where I didn’t carry this  abnormality to a further stage..
Most of the time, the nature is all made up very fine itself. The body knows something is wrong and tried to terminate it.

This fact balanced up my shattered feeling a lot.

Though sad and confused, I was kinda ok with my feeling.

Just that, I was afraid to face the upcoming pain.

I chose not to have a D & C surgery (Dilation and Curettage). I chose to wait for the fetus to come out by itself.

I was told that I shouldn’t wait for too long for it might cause an infection.

Yeah, I can’t deny that I was still carrying a slight hope that this baby is growing inside.. maybe the doc missed out something, or maybe the heart hasn’t start beating yet only?, lost counting cz of my irregular menstruation? face2_weep.gif

I had a time limit of 4 weeks, if nothing miracle or the not-growing fetus is not coming out naturally, I will have to undergo the D & C procedure..

Obviously, there was no miracle.

I waited without any signs but knowing that my baby is not growing inside me..for like more than 3 weeks.
-It was dreadful..

A few days before my D & C appointment, I started bleeding.

At last some sign!

Bleeding from really light to heavy with lots of clots. One of this clots is supposedly the fetus..

I was still bleeding until the day of my appointment..

I was hoping that my tummy is cleared but no.. fetus still there..
But doc said it will come out soon, so we decided not to perform the surgery yet.

True enough, at night on the same day, I felt like my womb was going to tear off! Felt so heavy and pain. Much bleeding and with more clots! Big one!

Some people said this felt like a mini labor, and I couldn’t agree more.

The pain came very gradually.

Felt so much pain at one point and so much was coming out that I need to get rid of them in the toilet..face2_crying.gif

The great pain subsided on the same night..

Went to the doc the next day, and as expected, all is gone.

I was relieved.
Studies and researchers revealed that early miscarriage (due to chromosomal abnormality) is not all a bad news. It also proved that we can conceive normally, and most likely the next pregnancies are going to be good one with a healthy baby face3_kao06.gif Most of the time, miscarriage is a one-time occurrence.

So if anyone is experiencing the same case, don’t worry too much!
This is also an episode of life p_futaba.gif which still not a bad one, just a coincidence.
(If this is hard for you to accept, maybe try to think that your baby forgot something and he just went back to God to get it face2_smile.gif)

My only concern after that was, I couldn’t made it to give a look on my not-growing fetus..face3_kao20.gif

2-3 months of rest, we tried to conceive again. I wish that my baby comes back to me as soon as possible to fill my lost.

And he did! -exactly 1 year after thath_heart09.gif

My new boss freshly from the oven

Once again, meet Kta, my new Little-big-boss!h_heart02.gif body3_te03.gifFreshly out from the ovenh_shine.gif

Trip to Malaysia 2015: The Water Parks
★2015/08/18 01:44

On hot hot weather in Malaysia,

The sunglass ❤Yes, water playing days non-stopmark3_sign01.gif

w_5_mist.gif At PJ Palms Sports Centre in Petaling Jaya w_5_mist.gif

Sliding on the water slideThe water slidemark3_sign03.gif face2_happy02.gifh_shine.gifw_5_typhoon.gifw_5_typhoon.gifw_5_typhoon.gif

Sliding on the water slide so professionally..SPLASSSSSSHmark3_sign03.gif face_self-conscious_smile.gifh_sweat.gifh_sweat.gifh_sweat.gif

Little-big-boss and cousin in the kiddie poolHe was having so much fun and like so familiar on the slide with lots of stances sliding down until he got to an accident bumping on to a kid who kept blocking the way down at the exit of the slide..face3_kao14.gif

His parents were no where to be seen! He was a foreigner who doesn’t speak English, which he didn’t seem to care for my warning till the unfortunate accident resulting Little-big-boss got hurt and bleed on the his lips..face3_kao14.gifh_annoy.gif

I was trying to avoid this and been very careful guarding Little-big-boss and my nephew, making sure nobody was down at the exit again trying to climb up from the slide..

The slide was a curved slide where you can’t see actually if anybody was blocking when you are up the slide.
I warned and made sure the kid was not near there.
I can’t watch 2 ways up and down at the same time.

And there when the accident happened h_annoy.gifh_annoy.gifh_annoy.gif The kid was back at the exit!

I know it was also my responsibility to let this happened!

But I still need to make this statement!

body2_a_paper.gifParents out there, please do look after your children, especially when they are in the pool and watch over them not only for their own safety but also others. And plus, so that they don’t break the rules and disturb other children playing at the same placemark3_sign03.gif

My case here,
he is your child, he doesn’t understand English, Malay and Chinese in Malaysia and doesn’t seem to listen to me. Do all these make enough reasons for you to even have to guard and guide them mark3_sign02.gifh_annoy.gifh_annoy.gifh_annoy.gifh_annoy.gifh_annoy.gif


Other than that, we had fun face3_kao07.gif
This place was quite nice with restaurants surrounding the pool.
