I’m off to hold my 1st CLOTH DIAPERING CHIT-CHAT.

Very excited yet very nervous! Anyway, the best part on doing the preparation is to challenge myself to learn more and more. The more research, the better I’m prepared. Not to put any high hopes because this is not to pass an- exam with flying colours. It is suppose to be in relax mode and ambience and just what is name, chit-chat! I’m sharing and learning at the same time. Let’s just hope all goes well and no silly hiccups along the way. See you there!

Alasan biasa kenapa orang tak nak ber-cloth diaper


Sebelum nak senarai alasan ni, nak beritahu ini this chat dari pandangan peribadi from me, pengakuan yang me terima dan juga perkongsian pengalaman kengkawan cloth-diaper mama yang lain.

Antara sebab orang tak nak ber-cloth diaper ialah…

* Lecehlah nak basuh-basuh, kalau najis lagilah, mana larat nak menyental. Mesti ada stain tertinggal kat cloth diaper tu, kan?

* Mahallah cloth diaper ni..sekeping berpuluh ringgit, anak kita pakai *pempers pun sehari 6-7 keping, mana mampu nak beli cloth diaper banyak-banyak?

* Cloth diaper ni takkan bocor ker? Anak saya kencing banyak!

* Iyer ker boleh jimat? Kalau asyik nak membasuh jer, banyak pakai air dengan sabun, elektrik lagi, boleh melambung bil-bil tu semua.

* Mana satu jenis yang sesuai untuk anak saya? Banyak sangat sampai pening nak pilihlah. Kang kalau dah beli, tak sesuai pulak, rugi jer saya.

* Anak saya kulit bermasalah. Dia sesuai pakai brand * tut-tut* jer. Kang tukar pakai kain, lembab-lembab kencing, bermasalahlah kulit dia.

* Taska / Nurseri / Penjaga anak saya mana nak terima kalau saya suruh mereka pakai cloth diaper ni? Lecehlah dioarang nak uruskan, dengan baunya, basah dengan bocor, nak simpan lagi..issshh..lecehlah!

* Nak berjalan-jalan anak pakai cloth diaper? Ish, susahlah! Pakai *pempers kan senang, kotor buang ajer! Nak bawak banyak-banyak lepas tu nak bawa balik..susah nak uruskan.

* Ala…pakai *pempers kan senang, dengan anak pun nak kedekut ker…macam zaman dulu-dululah pakai kain lampin lagi..kita dah moden, guna jelah yang boleh terus buang!

Amacam? Macam pernah dengar ker ayat-ayat tu? Secara telusnya, me pun tak terkecuali masa sebelum berhijrah ke cloth diaper ni. Alasan daripada me ialah part nak basuh dan part nak beli. Tapi itu semua dah tak jadi hal. Alah bisa tegal biasa. Masa mula-mula dulu nak ber-cloth diaper, hubs tanya me, “Awak larat ker nak basuh banyak-banyak?” Itu dulu, dan sampai sekarang hubs tak pernah melipat cloth diaper lepas angkat dari jemuran. Hubs cuma tukang masukkan dalam mesin basuh, kalau bukan me buatlah dan tukarkan lampin. Tapi, kalau nak tahu, sekarang ni bila me nak beli cloth diaper kena tanya hubs dulu. Bukan sebab wang ringgit yang difikirkan tapi design! Kang kalau corak atau warna tak berkenan, banyaklah ngomelan yang tak sedap didengar dari dia. Hehehe…see? Dia pun dah ‘involve’ dalam dunia cloth diaper ni dan dia pun suka tengok bam bam anak bongsu dia funky-licious! ekekekek..

So, kalau alasan-alasan macam yang kat atas tu antara penyebab anda tak nak ber-cloth diaper, mari chit-chat ngan me dan mari me tukar pandangan anda yer. Rasa nak bangga sikit, boleh tak? Okay, just nak beritahu, ada kengkawan telah pun bertukar ke cloth diaper setelah sekian lama baca my sharing on cloth diaper kat chatterbox ni. Malah ada yang dah jadi penjual cloth diaper pun. So…kalau anda nak tahu lebih lanjut, marilah hadirkan diri pada hari Ahad ni bersamaan 8 Ogos di Wisma Bling Lustre pukul 4 petang.

Ini ada sedikit peek on my preparation side….



Semua tu sebahagian daripada cloth diaper yang anda boleh lihat, malah pegang nanti yand didatangi daripada pelbagai rupa, dibuat daripada pelbagai fabrik dan fungsinya berbeza-beza. Telah dipinjamkan oleh seorang kawan yang sangat arif pasal cloth diaper. Itu baru sedikit, belum campur collection from yours truly. Nak cerita pasal apa? Setakat one-size cloth diaper tu dah common, kan? Apa kata kita kenal pula apa itu Fitted Diaper, AI2, AIO, Cover, Prefold, Hybrid, Flip Diaper dan kenal pelbagai jenis insert, apa itu soaker, liner, booster dan macam-macam lagi. Peningkah? Once you see it yourself, you won’t anymore.

See you there this Sunday. Anything, check kat stickt post tu ya….

Siapa berminat nak attend chit-chat Cloth Diapering?

STICKY MODE till 25th July, 2010

Me ada satu passion. Selain suka chameleon dan bercita-cita nak bela chameleon, me juga suka Cloth Diaper. Memanglah bukan me yang pakai, tapi suka tengok my Baby Hambali yang pakai. Me rajin basuh, belek-belek, masukkan insert dalam poket, rajin mengushar CD, rajin buat self-research, rajin jawab soalan pasal CD dan tidak dilupakan rajin juga membeli.

Oleh sebab itu, me rasa sudah tiba masanya me nak buat meet-up, ala2 get-together, macam sembang-sembang tu kan untuk semua peminat CD! Eh, bukan peminat CD sajer, yang penting pada sesiapa yang mahu tahu lebih lanjut pasal CD, segalanyer tentang DUNIA CD-ing, mari kita sama2 kemukakan pada Hanz! Eih, Hanz itu bukan me ker?

Why nak buat ni?

Out out my passion, out of my concern & simply sharing! Ooopsss..gini ceritanyer…me receive quite of numbers Qs dalam email, FB, face-to-face dan segala bentuk soalan pasal CD-ing ni. Tak semua orang boleh jadi macam Hanz, gi berguru CD sendiri jer! (Perasanlah tu!) No..itu memang kenyataan sebenarnyer coz itulah me, my character, kalu me minat pasal sesuatu, me akan go all out cari ilmu sebanyak dan sebaik mungkin. (Eih, ni nak cerita pasal aper ni?)

Anyway, me sangat-sangat memahami tentang sesetengah ibu-ibu di luar sana, ada yang berhajat nak ber-CD tapi tak tahu bagaimana dan dengan saper nak rujuk. Nak rujuk dengan penjual CD? Ada penjual CD yang sangat berhemah dan sangat membantu dan ada juga yang bo-layan jer. Betul tak? Ada tu pula sekadar nak jual produk dia jer. Tapi dalam DUNIA CD ni sebenarnya luas. Banyak yang boleh dipelajari (macam kat sekolahlah pulak!) dan sebenarnya banyak kebaikan dan kelebihan kita boleh dapat dalam ber-CD ni. Cuma nak kena tahu caranya. (Eh, Hanz nak kongsi tips ker?) Dan, sebenarnya tak susah mana pun ber-CD ni.

Dah ramai kengkawan yang menggalakkan me buat chit-chat ala2 workshop ni dan ada yang dah beritahu nak attend. So, why not?

So, how about U? Berminat? Me bukan nak jual mana2 brand CD tau, just me akan bawa few collections untuk contoh, me buat nota sempoi sambil kita sembang-sembang dan kunyah biskut.

Kalu berminat, tinggalkan tanda minat tu kat entry ni ya. PLEASE tinggalkan email address, senang me nak further contact. Bolehlah jugak kasi tahu apa yang akan dijangka dan expectation dalam chit-chat ni, so boleh me prepare. Kalau ada banyak soalan lagi bagus, just kasi tahu,ok? Maybe small fee akan chargeable just nak cover modal air liur Hanz, nota sempoi dan sewa tempat. Cepat tau! Kasi tahu kat kengkawan jugak. Akan dibuat sebelum bulan Ramadhan…insyaAllah…
MUCHAS GRACIAS!

I am so glad that I attended KEGEL with POISE


I had two events clashed with one another on its timing last Saturday. One was the Cloth Diaper Mommas get-together & one was the Kegel Fair with POISE. I chose the latter as this one time event was not something to be miss! Boy, and I don’t regret on my decision. It was an eye-opener and something worthy to be share with all woman.

Saw Nia & Lily already up their post on this. As we went along the whole programme lined-up, Nia, Lily & me did shared about each other brought up the same topic of the day.

I was the one who arrived early between the 3 of us so while waiting, snap pics here & there.

The main entrance to the hall

Participants has to check their registration here

POISE reps. introduced the many range of POISE pads.
Nia & Lily grabbed a piece or two but me as always,
being true to my cloth ways.

Celebrity like Low Ngai Yuen, former 3R lady shared her story about Urinary leakage, something that we woman, can relate to. Dr Peter Ng from Continence Foundation of Malaysia highlighted the medical side about overactive bladder & before the launching of Kegel with POISE, Dr Seri Suniza Sufian from Prince Court Medical Centre provided some tips and infos on how to prevent urinary leakage.

Launched of the KEGEL with POISE

Even songstress Atilia was there too!
I look so gumuks beside the slim Atilia

We were served light refreshment before the KEGEL exercise session consists of Mini Cheese Turkey Burger, Dim-Sum & Cheese Cake. As I just had brunch before arriving there, and so were Lily, the three of us really ‘makan’ there.


Gambar cilok from Nia. Thanks Babe!

Then, the event highlights, KEGEL exercise

Participants getting ready

Our lady instructress, led by Cik Neng Shahidan Sabullah,
Physiotheraphist from Prince Court Medical Centre

Mokcik dah tak sabar nih!

If Mrs Imran (in black shawl) did’nt greeted me, I would never knew she was there too. So, as always, snap piccas with other Blogger friends.


And, some goodie bag to bring home. I love the Poise Pilates. At least, some steps that you will tend to forget from the exercise session, can refer to the DVD. And, to my surprise, few of the steps is actually I have been doing them all this while for my exercise regime. Oh, not forgetting, now I have an exercise mat, thanks to Poise, I don’t need to use our kekabu mat anymore.

Hanz’s Note : Kegel exercises strengthen the pelvic floor that supports the vagina, uterus and bowel and keeping these muscles in good working order is very rewarding for women in all stages of life.Mothers should exercise their pelvic floors so there is less risk of muscles already weakened by pregnancy and birth being strained further when picking up growing children. Weal pelvic floor can caused urine leakage and less enjoyment of sex.

Special note : Thanks to Ms Sophie & team from In Deed Commuincations for this invitation. Ada lagi event, jangan lupa me!

An exhausted yet fulfilling Storyteller : 1SK-Bling Lustre Family Day


I am aching all over. Yesterday, call in sick & today back to routine of 9-6. Another mundane day.
It was great having the opportunity to put me back in action especially on the Mother’s Day itself. The Storyteller in me just awaken!! Pretty nervous okay, I got butterflies in my stomach before the performance, I did’nt even practiced, only the night before the actual event, I managed to prepare my props and voila! I gave my best shot, though I missed my lines, there’s one part where I supposed to tell the sailor boy supposed to take off his shirt and pant as the day was hot and then got to find his ‘origami’ shirt floating nearby but I slotted that to the end, yadda, yadda…

Thanks so much Lyna & the gang for giving me this opportunity to hold my storytelling session. And, best of all thanks to Kak Nur & Dian.. You ladies are rock! Such a great teamwork I had last Sunday. Without them, definitely will put me to tears of panic attack.

From my observation, the kids were enjoying the colouring session, but they were overwhelmed and tempted with the felt craft too….hahaha…and when the Storyteller, yours truly started to tell a story, alhamdulillah, they were in attentive mode though I suspected it’s quite difficult for them to understand. I told a story not in their mother’s tongue, hope the song, the action, the props able to assist the understanding part.




But, to wrap the whole session, I truly enjoyed the origami. Folding a square recycled paper to transform into a fish must have been a great experience for the kids. Hope they will be able to remember the steps as it is actually very easy!

I was unable to visit other session or visit other booths as I have to man the upper floor since indoor activity was under my care together with Kak Nur & Dian. Pretty sad as I look forward for the Bengkel Ikatan Tudung. Anyway, I’m truly glad to meet Coachsha again as I knew she will be there.Make it a point to clear few lingered questions that hubby & me had in mind about homeschooling. After her much assurance, we felt relieved and more motivated ever than before to continue Homeschool our eldest boy.


(L-r)Su, me, Nia, Lily, Anna, Dian, Fid, Sharina & Tifa


It was great to team-up again with MBP team-mates Ambassadors though we manned different tasks like Nia, Lily, and Fid, Tifa, even Juan who dropped by and of course not forgetting K.Ros. And meet again blogger friends like Azza, Shila, Sumi, Isabelle & Fathinz, who came all the way from Seremban. Also, make new friends.


Sue & Me


And, the best part I finally meet my old friends, way back in studies days in UiTM, Sue. Sue was also my ex-roommates. Hehehe..sorry Sue, unable to chit-chat with you.


Isabelle, Nad & me


And oh, finally met Nadnye. I can’t believe she is she. Petite and sweet, thought she was somebody else.

To anyone that I did’nt mentioned here, please forgive me. I was in chaostic of managing my stuff.And, I did’nt stay till the end.Rushed to MIL’s house about 5 something. Of all the day, SILS’s made some eating treat among us, so when we headed there, I was already in sleepy mode and throbbing pain in my head. The heat caught me again.

Hanz’s Note : All in all, thanks for all the parents and the kids for the Storytelling Session though I must admit a bit chaos on the registration part as some just leave their kids behind and did’nt approached us confirming on the attendance. We believe that due to the fact that it was raining and some took a shelter inside or went inside to get some rest and place to lepak-ing. :>

P/S : I’m such a bad blogger. Did’nt pass camera to hubby & unable to snap pictures on my own though I brought it. All pictures above courtesy of my dear blogger posse. Huhu..thanks friends!
