Why I Wish To Have A PORTRAITURE-SESSION With TripletsplusOne

Dear Munirah aka Mommy of TripletPlusOne,

Thank you for holding this Great Giveaway. Your giveaway is an answer to my inner wish that I’ve been holding back as none suits my needs.

Please make my wish came true. The following are my reasons on..

“Why I wish to have a Portraiture Session with TripletPlusOne”

1. I am one classic example of extreme-case lousy photographer. In the past, at present, perhaps in the future??? (unless I sign-up for photography class but still that would be the least things I want to do)

2. Despite having a digital camera, a gift from dear hubby beginning of this year to support me with my new passion which is blogging, I’m yet to master it’s features. My camera is Olympus 10.0 Mega Pixels. (Sorry Sayang, give me some time, kay…)

3. I don’t envy those having DSLR & what’s-in-the-name-latest gadget in photography because I know it would still be useless to me. But, I do envy those who managed to snap awesome pictures and secretly wishing I possess that TALENT!

4.Our plan to have a Family photo shoot in a studio this year Hari Raya was backfired and I’m crushed that plan still did’nt materialized till now.

5. I desperately needed a BREAKAWAY from this hectic life and my idea of breakaway is to spend time with my family with lots of trees, seas, breeze & sun and have it locked in one session of moment with lots of photos so that I can re-visit!

6. I want to enter many,many,many Contest & Giveaway that revolves around baby & kiddies pictures. Awesome pictures meaning my winning chance is higher! Creative entry is insufficient you see!

7. Did I tell you that I envy you, Munirah a.k.a. Mommy of TripletPlusOne for your talents & skills? Your photos looks as if I am exactly THERE! To you out there, believe what I’m saying as I guarantee you will envy them too. Just give a visit to Munirah’s blog <= Click here.

8. Last but not least, I STRONGLY believe there’s a whole lots more I can do to the quality of these CANDID pictures of MyBoys…



Finally, please accept my participation for your giveaway. Once again, thank you and happy snap2 pictures! Keep it up!

Yours truly,

P/S : Chit-chatters, this great giveaway ends on 21st November. Hurry and don’t miss it! You might win these prizes!

BabyKidsLove Contest

I love putting on Cloth Diaper & dressing up my Baby Hambali in leggings. Cloth Diaper & legging to me goes together very well. I don’t need to spend on short pants & long pants for him as all I need is cloth diaper & leggings! Plus, I get all the fun trying to find which cloth diaper match with which leggings. :D

If the day is hot, just a cloth diaper & shirt will do. If the day is cold or nighttime or when we are outside from home, I will put on leggings to Baby Hambali. Blogger friends who met me & my bunch will confirmed about Baby Hambali’s attire!

Here are some pictures of Baby Hambali in leggings….

AliceWonders.com "Find The White Rabbit" Party

We were there last Saturday at Subang Square around 3.00 pm. AliceWonders had this “Find The White Rabbit” event, whereby 3 Lucky attendees could walk away with Free Bag from Alice Hearts Collection.Loads of AliceWonders’s bags was on sale!

Ming from Malaysian Dream Girl season 2 were there & me had a moment of posing with her.She’s the one who modeled those AliceWonders bags!

“She’s adorable, ain’t she?

As Farah & I had set up our date, we had fun with the ‘Treasure Hunt’ but luck were not on our side. Lepak-ing for some time & while wondering where on earth was Lyna, she arrived finally.

Farah, me & Mommy Lyna

After the three of us parted, initially, me suggested to hubby to head to Subang Parade but then remembered about the WatchShoppe Voucher, so we headed Tropicana City Mall instead.

Baby Hambali was so sleepy….

A new organic product is just entering the Malaysian market and here me showing my support on eco-friendly products.

He,he..my boys were getting grumpy…

Name of Baby in Picture : Hambali bin Hasrat

Date of Birth : 12th of June, 2008


Picture’s Location : Taman Tasik Seremban


The Story Behind this picture : That was the first ever we brought Baby Hambali along with his 5 years old brother outdoor. First time experience for Baby Hambali but countless time for his big brother.We did’nt do any specific activity just ‘lazing’ around there and let Baby Hambali roaming about, crawled under the watchful eyes of both his parents. Just in case, he put every single thing he found inside his mouth! LOL! It could be dangerous! After that activity we made a mental note to do it often for the benefits of our family.

How to wear & care Cloth Pad

1.The first time you got your cloth pad (CP), please wash it first either hand-wash or toss them in the washing machine.

2. Snap the CP just like the pic below.

Picture credits to Mama Patch

3. It is essential to get a Wetbag to chuck soiled CP especially if you are working, out & about or in other words you doesn’t stay at home 24 hours a day.

I got my wetbag from Mum7Kids who produced the Saffa Pad for RM 15.00. It is made from Flannel PUL & the size is 8 inch X 8 inch and can store up to 7 CPs.


Then, by luck I stumbled this Dual Bag which I improvised it to be my very-the-handy-&-small wetbag so that I can put the fresh CP on one side & the soiled CP on the other side. Got it from Guardian for RM 11 & measured 5.5 inch X 4 inch, can store either 3 Regular CP OR 2 Panty Liner & 2 Regular CP. Fits in my handbag nicely.Dual wetbag is also available at Mama Patch.

4. Rinsed soiled CP under running water until water runs clear before chuck them in the wetbag.Make sure you wring them dry enough before temporary storing to bring back for further washing. Fold them up to save storing space.No worries about smell and you will be surprised soiled CP does not smell inside your wetbag.

5. During laundry, you can choose either to soak them for few minutes to remove stubborn stain or wash them immediately. You can either hand wash them together with your undies or toss them in the washing machine.

6. DO NOT SCRUB your CP.This will spoiled your CP durability.Light rubbing by hand is the best with frequent rinsing.You can also add a pinch of salt in the soaked CP in case there’s stubborn stain. NEVER EVER use Softener or Clorox as this can damage the CP fabric.

7. The Sun is the best bleacher just like it does to cloth diaper. Based on CP user’s experience sharing, recommended to wear your CP up to 4 hours on normal flow & less than 4 hours during the heaviest days.So roughly about 5 to 6 CP is needed during the heavy flow & 2-3 CP on the normal days and 1-2 on the lighter days.So no worries about leaking.You know your body best!

Next : Sneak peak on various type of Cloth Pad

Review on Malaysian-made Cloth Pad (CP)


…..As per Chit-Chatters Request & as promised, here goes! Wink!
:D

[From left to right: Saffa CP, Mama Patch CP & Snexi CP Snuggbaby –
All are Regular(Medium) CP]

Hanz’s Note : I’ve used mostly Panty Liner & Regular (Medium) CP as it based on my needs. Average hours of usage for each brand is 4 hours & on lighter days it will be more but not more than 7 hours before next changing.

I was surprised as previously if I prolonged the duration of wearing disposable pads, sometimes I experienced itchiness but with cloth pad, it is far from that. Don’t talk about stinky smell because with disposables, it does but with CP, it doesn’t.Trust me as I’m not the only users confirming this sort of experiences.Better still, it cut the flow days and many CP users just like me noticed the lesser menses output.No need to worry about the stain because with proper wash, you won’t experience one.

I would suggest that if you are on heavy side, try not to exceed more than 4 hours. Perhaps you would like to read great post especially for those on heavy flow side & those who wants to use it for Post-Partum. Glam Mama had share her experience on these. Click GLAM MAMA.

Allright, here’s my reviews and you can just click each brand name to be link exactly on the page of CP Makers whereby you can obtain all the details.

Mama Patch Cloth Pad

What I like : Thin & slim cut yet absorption withstand amazing. Easy to wash & did’nt leave any stain. I forgot that I’m wearing one during the end days of menses though I was wearing the Panty Liner.

What I dislike : None. Hoping that Chin Nee will come out patterned or yummy print fabrics soon. (he,he..always drool over yummy prints just like what I did with cloth diapers & cloth wipes)

Saffa Cloth Pad (Mum7Kids)

What I like : Thicker a bit & comes in varieties of colours & prints. Contoured nicely over panties. Absorption wise good.

What I dislike : They sell very fast as you can see they are available in some our local Cloth Diapers store & blogshops as well so you tend to miss out some prints you fancy. Hopefully Ummi Zhadami will restock fast or maybe increase the same prints quantity.

What I like : So far as far my search ongoing this is the first unique shape CP that I ever came across. Diamond-cut shape & when it folded it works like any other CP. It comes in 3 bright colours nevertheless the colours did’nt ‘bleed’ when wash-out or damp or wet. Absorption wise good. Liza has upgrade the layers with PUL recently & bet no leaking worries.

What I dislike : I only hope that Liza (as I did highlighted her) will make it curvier & its unique shape can remains so thinking if it is curvier and folded, there’s no remaining fabric around the panties edges so that it will rounded the panties snugly.

Next : How to wear & care Cloth Pad.
