Pamper me! Pregnancy Massage


I am a time bomb, I need a pause.

Yes, it's 34 weeks of my 2nd pregnancy, I don't think it's a good idea to go for a holiday, especially travelling by plane or any long journey drive. However, I really need to pamper myself. Please please, pamper me.

Pamper me, with the Pregnancy Massage.
Yep, Pregnancy massage , specially tailored for mom-to-be to help reduce anxiety and relief muscle cramps. 

Urban Retreat Spa @ The Curve offers the Pregnancy Massage.
It is located at 1st floor, same level as the MPH Bookstore.

The reception counter & waiting lounge.
They will serve you ginger tea before you begin your treatment. 

As you walk to your massage room.

Not to forget, Urban Retreat Spa is the winner of BAZAAR Spa Awards 2013 for the BEST Pre-Natal Massage. This is my very first experience for a Pregnancy Massage. 
Mom-to-be out there, don't worry, this is specially made for US :)

Meet Thip, my masseuse. 
Notice that super comfy pillow- The Pregnancy Pillow! Yes Yes Yes!
I told you, specially made for US :)
Her delicate touch & soft massage. No essential oil being used as some oil may be sensitive to some mothers. The massage focuses on lower back, hip, legs & neck. 

You will lied down on your left side, & hug the pillow and then to your right side.
I can't really remember what happened- I think I was in my deep sleep, hehe. It must be really good till I can't really recall what's going on ;p  It was all for 90 mins treatment 
(for RM159), for full body of course. 

 I normally will get body ache after any massage, but this time around, surprisingly, NONE. Must be the delicate touch from Thip, thank you Thip :)

I must say, I really enjoyed the pregnancy massage. Definitely will book for another session. Come & join me ;p There's a room for 2 ;)

If you plan to get a massage, you may do so at your 2nd trimester onwards.
and as late as 1 day or 1 hour before delivery :)

Besides The Curve, there's another outlet in 1 Mont Kiara, check out their website

I highly recommend mom to be out there to go for it.
You will not regret it, trust me.

I'm 29 weeks :) ABC on my pregnancy


I'm back! 

Finally, I can kill some time & update my blog.
I am officially....

Let's talk about pregnancy.

FYI, this is my 2nd child.
My first child, DHIA DAHLIA was born 11th March 2012.
She's turning 3 and will be getting a brother/sister ;p

Since, some of you asked , let me share with you.
Here's the essential check list during pregnancy:


1. WHAT YOU WEAR

I think it's important to look good although we are pregnant.
MATERNITY WEAR- my pick : 9MONTHS MATERNITY 
You can purchase it online & direct at the store ( there's one in KLCC (in Isetan), Empire Subang where I normally go to). It's always been my preference since my 1st pregnancy as you can definitely use them even if you're not pregnant.

2nd pick will be MOTHERCLUB- I purchased at KLCC as well (in Isetan). 
The bottom & dresses are really affordable & comfortable too.

When is the right time to purchase maternity wear?
Well, for bottom- pants & skirt-5 months above or whenever you feel that your existing pants/skirts no longer love you ;p For dresses, I bought it at 7 months pregnancy.
It all depends on how big is your tummy. I am not a skinny person hence I need to hunt for maternity wear ;)

If you fancy dresses, you can also opt for FLOW (it's not maternity wear but it's for plus size & people with curve , yeah, we have curve!- but it works for me & I will definitely reuse it even for post pregnancy )



FOOTWEAR?
 I recommend SNOWFLY LONDON,CAMEL ACTIVE, FITFLOP, HUSH PUPPIES, LARRIE
Opps, I don't really fancy rubber shoes ie Crocs but I like iPanema :)


UNDERWEAR?
You can always go to maternity/ baby shop for bra even nursing bra (only buy nursing bra when you are 7 months pregnant & above). For panties, normal lingerie shop would have a maternity pants, surprisingly AEON Jusco also selling comfy & very reasonable panties for mom to be, with adjustable strap & button :)



2. PREPARATION FOR DELIVERY 
  • Monthly Check up- I normally do my 1st monthly check up till 6 months of pregnancy at nearest clinic (Klinik Pakar Wanita preferably/ clinic that offer ultrasound, prenatal checks). Once I reach 6 months pregnancy, I'd get a summary/full detail report from the clinic & start to book / continue my check up at the hospital where I plan to deliver. My 1st pregnancy- I did my checkup at KLINIK KITA, WANGSA MAJU & now at KLINIK FAMILI DR WAN KAMARIAH SETIAWANGSA. Klinik Kita- flexible & no appointment required but you'll get different doctor (depends on their availability & time you visit the clinic- I think it's lack of consistency as you refer to few doctors). Klinik Famili Dr Wan Kamariah- available Mon-Thu from 9am to 1pm, however you need to come at 8am to que for your turn. It normally takes 1-2 hours of waiting and you can practically ask anything you want! I guess that's why the waiting is painful as everyone drag the doctor's time. I like the doctor, but I found it quite gross that they actually reuse/ recycle the urine plastic cup. Errr...
  • Antenatal Class - very useful for first time parents- I attended mine at HUKM, about RM100 per couple for full day class 9am-5pm , food & notes provided. About 20 couples per class. You can always register for antenatal class at any hospital- good to do it at the hospital that you plan to deliver- we had a tour to the hospital, emergency hall & labor room. They also cover breathing technique, how to bath your baby, confinement care, exercise during pregnancy. There's goodie bags & free stuff ie diapers, formula milk ( I guess this depends on sponsors).
  • Hospital & Gynae - at 6 months the latest, book & plan where you want to deliver. It's crucial to continue your monthly check up at the hospital as you will need to prepare if it's a premature birth & hospital would prefer patient will full record so that they could treat you based on your record & medical history. This is also to book the gynae that you want. For both of my pregnancy, I started my check up at 6 months at the hospital.
  • Carry your Mom's Book/ "Buku Merah"/ Hospital Book- at 7 months do make it compulsory for you to bring your book anywhere at any time. You don't want any last minute or emergency to happen & you don't carry your record with you.
  • Hospital Bag- at 7 months, get your hospital bag ready in your car/ at home where you can just easily grab the bag.

I'm packing my hospital bag, will share with you the essentials you need :)
Oh yeah, I will continue my blog-sorry I had to put a full stop as my lil Dhia needs me now ;)

For me, WATCH is equally as precious as TIME. I still see people wearing their watches (including me). In fact, watches are also a substitute bracelet to dress up our outfit and to complete our style. ( I bet most of you will agree with me as I do dress up & match my watch with what I am wearing).

#throwback Joey & Zoey Telemovie


YouTube-ing and found this!

Way back in 2009, did this for side income.

Spot me ;p



Some of behind the scenes photo that I still have

Me & Ainul- we are April babies!

Killing our time

MMU-ians, proud to be MMU students!
Azma Aizal Yusof is now a super talented actor, script writer & producer
Catch his latest work @ TV3, 7pm "Kerana Terpaksa Aku Relakan"


This was taken in 2011, I was 6 or maybe 7 months pregnant?
Azma was a producer and coincidently, he was shooting at my in law's place! (where I used to live at that time). Such a small world!


Was taken just recently at Rico Rinaldi's Summer Raya Fashion Show

Zahiril Adzim ( I hope it's the right spelling)


oh #throwback mode. Hehe.


My Wish List: Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop


Went to Japan Home Centre @ Wangsa Walk
(few shops from Cold Storage), was browsing through and this caught my attention.

There's a demo set there, I guess I've cleaned that portion of tiles in their shop!
Was too amazed to see & try it.


Check it out:


It's RM99. and there's also extra cleaning pad at RM17.90 (if I'm not mistaken)
and there's few other accessories as well.

Hubby said "Do you really need this now?"

I said "Not really but it would be good to have this"

After watching the video, I guess I can make my justification why I should get this
1. no carrying of pail & water (imagine I cleaned the floor and reused the dirty water for another round of cleaning, yucks)-I'm OCD! 
2. conventional cleaning method-messy and prolly I will end up using more cleaning solution
(imagine if you didn't finish your cleaning, you can keep the water and reuse it the next day/time?
3. I don't mind cleaning the pads ;p
4. convenient

Ok, I am so gonna go to Japan Home Centre tomorrow to get this.

Wish List. Attention to hubby :) :)

Dhia Dahlia- Trip to Hello Kitty Town, Johor Bahru


It's Dahlia first trip to Sanrio Hello Kitty Town, JB!

Recommend to purchase the tix online at 


Bought the tix online, easy and since Dhia is under 3 years old, free entrance for her.
RM55 each for me & hubby (with MyKad). So total of RM110.

As she's a big fan of Barney, we decided to opt for entrance to "The Little Big Club", where there is Barney, Bob the Builder, Pingu & Angelina Ballerina.

If your kids are above 4, I would suggest get entrance to Hello Kitty town as well.

Look at her, all gear up for the fun! 
Her favourite pose-mata mmg tutup kononnya senyum abis!

Papa pun naik excited juga! It's huge play area.
( I don'think we have all this when we were kids!, as mom, usual responsibilities to look after the stroller and bags. Haha). Wait til I have Bibik ya?



Papa dah surrender, haha. Obvious kan?
Dhia is completing her finishing line! Yay!

Ride in Thomas & Friends.

Her favourite, Barney! She spent quite sometime here

Mama pun tumpang excited

Spot Dhia! (Posing celah ketiak Bob), orang suruh pose kat kereta, she didn't

There's a cafe. Bit pricey, I had the Fried Rice Combo for RM15 (worth the taste)


Hubby had Chicken Burger Combo, comes with a mineral water

Bob The Builder!

Pingu!

Barney show! at 1pm. So make sure you be on time & checkout the showtimes schedule

Angelina Ballerina Ballet class.
Accessories & tutu skirt on loan 






 Some of the photos with Angelina, she seems to spend some time with Dhia.
Gomol-gomol abis

Souvenir shop! Dhia is checking out the stuff, she's a good girl, tak beli apa pun sbb dah banyak toys at home!

The Hello Kitty Town, 3 tingkat. 

Open 7 days a week, 10am-6pm

In case you wonder why you didnt see any crowd in our photos, We arrived at 10am sharp! Be early if it's Public Holiday/School Holiday ya :)

Have fun!
