Madame Blossom's Book of Poems

Friday, August 31, 2007


(bagi menunaikan permintaan beloved SIL..)

actually, there's too many stories from different perspective to tell, about having a baby.. X 4 some more.. macam berjela2.. boleh buat buku..
So, i'm going to concentrate on the C-section thingy - general or regional anaesthesia.
kalau nak dengar about other things like nursing and preparation and what not.. nanti tell me ok. here we go..

1st experience.. semua nak super duper..nak deliver kat Mt E.. ingat paling expensive paling best.. but REALLY buang2 duit aje..
i still think in terms of room, food, service - KKH is the best - based on my last experience about 5 yrs ago.

ok.. so the 1st one tu.. macam anxious kan.. some people say, the baby may come a few days or up to a week before the 'EDD' (expected due date).
But Hadi, decided (Allah SWT da tentukan) that he wants to come out on the due date itself. So at about 2-3 am that morning, i felt a 'pop in my tummy. The water bag burst. I told hubby, and i told him i'm still fine.. so we shud just wait first.

About 5am, i timed the contractions.. macam 5 mins apart, so i told him.. maybe we shud start to go.. but I REALLY felt like having prata, so could we stop by Adam Road for prata before heading to the hospital? He agreed. So with contractions still going on.. i had my prata.

Kat hospital, i was wheeled in.. and after 2-3 hours more i cannot bear the contraction pain.. i asked for epidural. The pain was gone like magic.
After that I was sent to a big comfortable room.. since I didn't feel the contractions nor the pain, I was happy watching TV siang2 hari.. but my cervics was still like 2-3 cm. SAMPAI malam! like 11pm.. at last the doctor said.. it's too long, and i'm getting dry inside.. let's do a caesarian sect.

I cried.. i wanted a normal birth (well, not so normal with the epidural) but.. anyway.. no choice.. baby's safety more important.
I was wheeled into the operating room and they put me on GA (general anaesthetic) and I went to sleep. I woke up a bit when i was wheeled out, and remember seeing my mother in law.

About 3am in the morning, they woke me up to see my baby. it felt funny - especially when u don't see him coming out from you.. it's like they just brought some baby over and say.. this is your baby. .. BUT.. he was the cutest baby, to me. and so ok.

It took me about 3 days i think, before i could walk about.


.. was 2 weeks late.. after EDD.. still takde rasa apa2 pun.. at last masuk hospital.. they induced me.. pun macam tak nak keluar, but i started to feel the contractions. Oh yes, Hanaa onwards.. i was at KKH. Again, cannot bear the pain, asked for epidural.

So, they were monitoring the baby.. then they told me, the baby's heartbeat is irregular. they felt that it would be better to have the baby out asap, so that they can monitor it directly, in case of anything.. So, another emergency C-section for me.

Another disappointment on not having normal birth, and another GA. I was asleep.

This time, about 2-3 days jugak ah.. before i sit up and walked.

After 2 C-sects, this one was planned. So, boleh choose date, I chose 1 day lepas raya, so that i can go jalan2 first.

This one also.. i took GA - although i've heard of regional anaesthesia, where you get numbed from the waist down. But no thank you. Takut.

The delivery for eema was more like, everything according to plan. No surprises. I'm contented.

I still took about 2-3 days to recover, i mean before i walked about in bearable pain.

I was having flu, on the appointed date that i was suppose to deliver her, by C-section again.

So this time, a lady doc on duty, she came by my bed and asked me how I was. Then she asked if I want general or regional anaesthesia. 'GA of course' i said.
'Why don't u want to try regional? she asked. So i told her la.... ermm..i'm afraid. She assured me it was OK. I won't feel any pain at all.

She STRONGLY encouraged me to go for regional. In terms of safety, she felt it will be better for me, cause i was coughing and having phlegm. And she also said, it's much better than GA, i'd be able to see the baby, and I'll recover faster. Because under GA.. the 1st day alone.. is recovering from the GA itself..

I was still scared, so i asked.. what if i insist on GA - she said, then i may have to wait 2-3 days more, until i recover, so as not to take the risk of chocking on my phlegm.

Ok, NO WAY am I going to sleep with more than 10kg of tummy for one more day! I'm tired! I've been counting the days to delivery since the last 90 days or so.. I'm not going to wait another 3-4 days! So ok lah.. go with the regional anaesthesia. Tawakkal.

On the operating table, they asked me to curl up into a foetal position, then they injected something into my spine i think.. it hurts, but not A LOT.. terperanjat and takut aje.. i think.. after that.. slowly.. i began to lose feeling from my waist down.. it felt funny.

The doctor poked to check.. i didn't feel anything.
So he said.. we'll start now. There were 2 doctors.. so they were chatting with each other, as they started to operate - macam kita berbual kat kedai kopi.

After a short while of waiting.. i asked,' So, when are u going to cut?' they he said,' Oh.. we cut already.. now we're taking the baby out.
WHAT? waah....

they did a bikini cut. so.. after that, they pressed on my tummy to 'push' the baby down and out. Then, they brought the baby close to me..
MasyaAllah.. a different kind of feeling.'

Pastu the nurses took nadhrah to be cleaned, and the doctors started to stitch me up. The giving birth part was only about 10 mins.. but the stitching back up was about 20.. because they had to stitch, i think, 3 layers? when he pulled to tighten the stitch IN my tummy.. i felt a tug - not painful at all, just felt a tug. after they finished stitching me up.. i was wheeled to a recovery room, and then 1-2 hour later back to my room.

I was afraid that when the anaesthesia begin to wear off, that i might feel intense pain macam nak pengsan.. but no lah.. ok ok jugak. In fact the next day, i tried my best to sit up already and started to walk about on my 2nd day. it's true. i recovered faster. And i prefer this experience better than the GA.

Pain? sure la. Since i never had any natural birth, i cannot imagine the pain THERE.

Bearing a baby for 9 months, the last 3 months being most trying, because of the weight on ur tummy, you cannot sleep!
Imagine carrying 2 sacks of 5 kg rice on ur tummy for 3 months.

It's what all mothers go thru kan? Cannot back out last minute right?
Sebab tu.. sayangilah mak korang.

Ok la.. itu aje cerita Birth untuk kali ini.

jangan marah eh, aku cakap

Kalau aku cakap, kau jangan marah eh.
Aku rasa kan.. deodorant is a necessity, not a luxury.
sebarang type of deodorant lah
asal tak keluar bau dari ketiak tu.
Pergi lah pakai - it affects your image.
Image seorang Muslim, is suppose to be clean.

tak tahu lah.. kalau orang dulu2 rasa bau badan ni ok.. sedap.
But zaman sekarang dah lain.
Lagi2 kalau kau kerja selalu jumpa orang
example macam kat restaurant.
kau serve makanan - you'll have your ketiak at people's faces.
kalau diorang bau kan.. tak best.
dah 2 image tarnished - you and the restaurant.
then orang tu.. takut hilang pulak selera nak makan.

Aku tahu, orang selalu tak cakap pasal ni
tapi aku concern la jugak.
So, jangan marah la aku cakap.
Ini untuk kebaikan kau.

victims of the norm

the norm, is what you keep seeing and doing.
it slowly becomes a norm,
no matter how wrong or abnormal or ridiculous it was before.

and we have become victims of these 'norms'.
we often forget, that what's norm,
does not mean it's right, doesn't mean it's good either.

they say it's cool
we say it's cool
we're playing simon says.
we don't think.

And we so easily get shaped,
into what syaitan (which comprises of men and jin) tells us is the norm.
We have no self control or the ability
to stop and think and defend ourselves,
our souls.

practical examples.
i think i don't need to dwell into pre marital sex,
gays & lesbians,
jeans that show your you-think-it's-nice-but-it's-err-ahem butt & panties.

it includes
employers taking advantage of employees, emphasizing on discipline at work and disregarding their discipline towards their own family
big TV companies, getting people to sign off every right the people have, if they want to appear for 1 stupid minute on their channel.
companies practically shoving totally unnecessary products that they manufacture, into consumer's faces
deceit as a part of the marketing ploy - it's what they call 'standard marketing tactics'

when do we wake up
and even realise the reason for living
we have got to save our selves and our souls.
and stop being victims of the so-called 'norms'

men of understanding, are we?

this verse, moves me.
much more when heard or read in it's original language.

Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day,- there are indeed Signs for men of understanding,-

Men who celebrate the praises of Allah, standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides, and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth, (With the thought): "Our Lord! not for naught Hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the Fire.

Al Quran Ali-Imran 3:190-191

إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لآيَاتٍ لِّأُوْلِي الألْبَابِ

الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىَ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَذا بَاطِلاً سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ

and we do this and that

at last we meet, after so long.

and we eat and we drink

and we work (or not)

and we talk

and we meet again

test over.. for now.
when the new set of lessons start, can i please prepare early?

Especially on a special day.

I was quite frustrated,
when i was told not to take half day.
Now i understand.
That, i appreciate.

Then, comes the card,
When i first read the card,
I almost fell off my seat.
I wanted to laugh out loud.

'..stunning beauty'?? '..and the mini garden, it's so you..'
i know him.
it's soooooo not him.
But hey, thanks for the thought!
It's funny.

what i really do appreciate:
his call
his song
his flowers
the dinner company
the dadha surprise
the 5min self made 'blossom n nur' card
bros and sisters smses n wishes
my children's gifts and cards

you are all soooo sweet.
thank you for having me in your life.

we learn as we grow older,
each and every single day.

*husnuzon - bersangka yang baik, assuming good.
especially towards ur hubby.

places and moments

places we've been at
places that mean so much
when the time has passed
and people have changed or are gone
yet those places remain the same

places that bring memories
places that hold a history
of individuals
in their own historic moments

when they leave those places,
with a heavy heart
wishing that they can stay there
in that exact moment and exact situation
or perhaps just replay those moments
over and over again
like how you would a movie on a dvd player

but in reality
a moment passed, is a moment gone
never coming back
never going to be replayed

and some of those places,
they are there like they were before
unchanged, unaffected

but the individuals,
those moments may forever remain in their minds
with only the places to rekindle those memories
of it's historical individual moments
that somehow shaped the way they think, feel and grow

true and everlasting blissfulness
can and will only happen in Heaven

Ya Allah, yes i do realize
that especially during those moments
we think life on earth is blissful,
and we often forget, it's only limited and temporary
but the Hereafter, is infinitely better and everlasting

May we always be reminded, and may we always be guided.


*inspired after watching 'before sunrise' (again).
i especially like the end part, where they show the places
they've been at - it had such an effect- how those places are seemingly unaware of the such momentous things that took place.

places, time, people, 3 separate elements combine to create 'the moment', WITH Allah's decree. and this effect - somehow got me reminded about the finite and limited bliss or happiness or goodness that this world can offer, as Allah has reminded us in the Quran:

بَلْ تُؤْثِرُونَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَى

But nay, [O men,] you prefer the life of this world,
although the life to come is better and more enduring.

Al Quran, Al-A'la 87:16-17

Yesterday, J at work, gave me some mooncake to try.. then suddenly
she shrieked, "EH! so MANY ants!!"
"Where?!" i asked.
And she pointed to a single lost ant.
This is what i call exagerration.
But she's cute.. in the office she laughs the most.

It was raining very heavily this morning. I had to walk a longer way to get to the car.
I'd rather walk a longer way or get a little bit wet or half wet, than carry an umberella-ella-ella-e-e.
(i know.. the song will probably be stuck in ur head for the rest of the day).

And so, I was late. If it was not raining, I may have been 5 minutes earlier.. but still 5 minutes late.
Hmm.. what's new.

Anyway, back to the topic of rain.. as it was almost literally pouring earlier in the morning. I imagined, how it must have been during Prophet Noah's time, when Allah SWT made the big flood. I mean like even now in normal heavy rains we had flash floods. So masa tu, Allah SWT made it rain so heavily from the skies and also let water out from the earth, so imagine how fast the flood would have consumed the whole land. Subhanallah.

Thereupon We inspired him thus: “Build, un­der Our eyes [12] and according to Our inspiration, the ark [that shall save thee and those who follow thee]. [13] And when Our judgment comes to pass, and waters gush forth in torrents over the face of the earth, place on board of this [ark] one pair of each [kind of animal] of either sex, as well as thy family - excepting those on whom sentence has already been passed; and do not appeal to Me [any more] in behalf of those who are bent on evildoing - for, behold, they are destined to be drowned!

Al Quran, Al Mu'minun 23:27

Will you then not consider?

p.s. my lovely hanaa is 10 today!

qurrata a'yun - comfort of our eyes

And those who pray, "Our Lord! Grant unto us spouses and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous."

وَالَّذِينَ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا هَبْ لَنَا مِنْ أَزْوَاجِنَا وَذُرِّيَّاتِنَا قُرَّةَ أَعْيُنٍ وَاجْعَلْنَا لِلْمُتَّقِينَ إِمَامًا

Al Quran, Al-Furqan 25:74

Happy National Day

i guess, i am glad to be in singapore, mostly because of all the convenient things that Singapore has. MasyaAllah. E.g. like i can pay ALL my monthly bills on the internet, do govt-related paperwork on the internet. surf wirelessly and some places, easy to install broadband, anywhere we live. internet connection is somewhat reliable, if compared to others. government agencies are quite efficient. Food is nice and most fast food can be ordered thru phone or online and they deliver almost anywhere.

There are a lot of mosques in singapore ACTUALLY. It's just sad that we don't use it that often. Ok, that's one issue that the mosques has to work out. Because during Rasulullah's time, the mosques was not just a place for prayer - it was more like a community center. Even visitors from other countries would visit Rasulullah SAW in the mosque.

Singapore is clean.. and I appreciate that Singapore IS GREEN. I know last time i hear about green singapore.. but i never really notice. but now I start to notice.. yes Singapore is GREEN. everywhere you go, you will not find a single place where there are no trees or shrubs around - of course not counting indoors.. but hey.. you know some building DO have small trees IN THE building.

What I don't like about Singapore? I think we are not honestly proud of our roots. We 'say' we are, but all plans, mass media, what's called 'appreciating arts' what is being 'open minded' - are all in trying to so imitate the moral-deprived certain westerns. We are not brave enough to say 'MORALITY is THE right thing. I don't have to bare my most of body to get business into SINGAPORE, stupid" or lower my moral values? - think about it.. it mostly comes to that.. one way or another.

So what is advancement? How do you say we've progressed when there are more rapes and unwanted abortions and becoming robots without empathy for others.

I also HATE the calls from singapore banks. Hi miss.. we'd like to offer you a LOAN, or a CREDIT CARD, or SOME ADVANCE CASH. How stupid do they think I am. Sometimes i feel like nagging back to them.. saying" I actually don't need a loan, now, why do you think I would need one? I am happy with my life now, no stress because i have no loans. If I take on your loans, just because you offer it, and then now I have an obligation to pay you back the loan PLUS INTEREST and I am going to feel that I have added a burden to my life. So how is that LOAN suppose to help me? Please explain. (I think I'll print this out and read it to the next person who offers me a loan or credit card or advance cash.

oh.. sorry..the topic is about how i appreciate Singapore. Right.

So.. what did i do today? I went to hubby's best friend's place and I helped made the sushi! The last time I made sushi must have been about 2-3 years ago. anyway.. it turned out ok. So, we talked and we ate and we ate, and we talked. while the children swam and played games and what not. Not a bad day. and I didn't eat too much. Alhamdulillah.

abis actually pink nak ajak tengok fireworks.. but we started the 'plan' at like 6plus. so it was kind of impossible. we figured, next year, if we're going to watch it, we'll plan at least 1-2 days in advance, rather than 1-2 hrs.

Totally moving

For almost 3 years now, we have been sitting in a 'temporary' place since this project started. Next week, we'll have to move back up to the 2nd floor.

Well, at least that will give me the needed 1 minute exercise at work every morning, walking up the stairs to the 2nd floor.

Sitting downstairs so far, has it's ups and downs. The 'ups' is that, the big bosses are all upstairs, so we are in a more relaxed area.

i can come in late EVERYDAY. Not that I WANT to.. but i've become complacent. But i do make up for it in the evening la, by going back later. Next week onwards.. Allah SWT help me.. I've been trying though.

Downstairs, lunch hour is any hour u feel like it actually - which is good. Because you should really eat ONLY when u're hungry and not because it's lunch time. oh man.. talking about lunch now, when I'm fasting... i'm hungrier. but insyaAllah can perservere. Down, nafsu, down!

ok, then the 'downs' of being downstairs, is that, i'm seated between the office main entrance and the big conference room. And I'm facing the walkway. Being in a Japanese company, they expect you to greet each visitor actually by bowing a bit.. saying hello or good morning or ohayo gozaimasu. It gets a tiring, disrupts my concentration, and it's irritating sometimes.

I have even contemplated coming up with a sensor device, that will play my recorded "hello" everytime someone walks pass. Brilliant idea right? I only have to look up and smile, if i'm not too busy.. or else, the person wud have thought that I said it and he responded late, so I have continued with my chat work.

But after further contemplation i scrapped the idea. Cause not only guests pass that way, my colleagues (still ok la), the tea-lady (still quite ok), the cleaner boy, the warehouse boy.. I couldn't risk them thinking I'm crazy. Plus what if they walked pass to and fro in a matter of minutes - and he hears "Hello".. Hello'.. then also.. what if 4-5 people all walk in a row.. the sensor device would have sounded 'hello, hello, hello, hello, hello" da macam record rosak and my 'smart' trick device wud have been discovered. Not good for my appraisal.

You can tell right, today, i'm not very busy (cannot say 'free').
Plus is pre-holiday.
Tomorrow Singapore National day mah..
No, I'm not wearing red.
No, I'm not wearing red tomorrow either. I think i DON't have any red t-shirts/shirts.

Yes, I'm bored.

Yes, I'm a bit sick.

Yes, I'm waiting for 5.20pm (cause i came in 5 minutes late today)

Ok.. i think i better start moving my stuff now.

InsyaAllah, I'm going to enjoy my loooooong weekend. And I hope u too. And maybe take some pictures in the toilet.. but before that.. finish my homework and hafalan.. insyaAllah. (da brpa kali aku cakap nak buat?)

what'd I think

tadi ingat nak blog about something else.. da tulis panjang2.. abis tak jadi.

tadi jugak, plan nak baca tarikh tasyri ke... hafal Quran ke.. but apa aku buat? baca Good Will Hunting punya screenplay.

but i like this part..

Will was offered a post at NSA (National Security Agency). Sean, his psychologist, asked him what he thinks about the post. Will answered :

Say I'm working at NSA. Somebody puts a code on my desk, something nobody else can break. So I take a shot at it and maybe I break it. and I'm real happy with myself cause I did my job well.

But maybe that code was the location of some rebel army in North Africa or the Middle East. Once they have that location, they bomb the village where the rebels were hiding and fifteen hundred people I never had a problem with get killed.

Now the politicians are sayin, " Send in the marines to secure the area" cause they don't give a shit. It won't be their kid over there, gettin' shot. Just like it wasn't them when their number got called. 'cause they were pullin a tour in the National Guard. It'll be some guy from Southie takin' shrapnel in the ass.

And he comes home to find that the plant he used to work at got exported to the country he just got back from. And the guy who put the shrapnel in his ass, got his old job, cause he'll work for fifteen cents a day and no bathroom breaks.

meanwhile my buddy from Southie realizes the only reason he was over there was so we could install a government that would sell us oil at a good price. And of course the oil companies used the skirmish to scare up oil prices so they could turn a quick buck. A cute little ancillary benefit for them but it ain't helping my buddy at two-fifty a gallon. And naturally they're takin their sweet time bringin the oil back and maybe even took the liberty of hiring an alcoholic skipper who likes to drink martinis and play slalom with the icebergs, and it ain't too long till he hits one, spills the oil and kills all the sea life in the North Atlantic.

So, my buddy's out of work and he can't afford to drive, so he's got to walk to the job interviews, which sucks cause the shrapnel in his ass is givin him chronic hemorrhoids. And meanwhile he's starvin' cause every time he tries to get a bite to eat, the only blue plate special they're servin' is North Atlantic scrod with Quaker State.

So what'd I think? I'm holdin' out for someting' better.
I figure I'll eliminate the middleman.

Why not just shoot my buddy, take his job and give it to his sworn enemy, hike up gas prices, bomb a village, club a baby seal, hit the hash pipe and join the National Guard? I could be elected president.

Yup, i think that about sums up, what I think about the government of that country too.

Have you watched Good Will Hunting? You should.

before sunrise - beauty defined

right now.. tengah in love with the movie - before sunrise.

I've seen it before, and loved it. I saw it again, and love it still. There is also a sequel called 'before sunset'. Amazingly, the movie is totally without any action, it's just mundane conversations.. but the possibilities that arised from the situation they were in.. is so amazing.

Then, there's the lead actress, julie delpy, she's not gorgeous actually.. but her intelligence and confidence made her quite beautiful. You see the beauty beyond the outlook. And those kind of beauty, the inner beauty - which to me, includes, iman, intelligence, confidence, being a person with her own mind - those kind of beauty are the ones, that are important, and will lasts in this lifetime.

The movie is sooo sweet. i love it. did i say that already?

So, the last few days, for me, was busy with discussions about the movie, when we should be discussing Qawaid and hafaling the Quran .

Yes, my revisions will start soon, insyaAllah.
