Ady Rifqi is two weeks old today. Hubby shaved Ady's head last Sunday so he no longer has any hair now. Shaving a newborn's head is a sunnah in Islam. It signifies cleansing so a new set of hair could replace the one he has since inside the womb. The shaved hair will then weigh and equalise with gold's rate and the amount will be donated to those in needs. Another sunnah is having aqiqah, which is to sacrifice 2 lambs or 2 parts of cow for a boy. Insyaallah aqiqah for Ady will be done in two weeks time.
This is Ady's latest, new look. He looks a bit different now isn't he?
Ady got jaundice on his third day. Photo therapy session was done on him in the ward before we were discharged and we did two follow ups at SDMC to check his bilirubin's level. The last test was done Friday last week and it was 222. We have tried carrying him under the morning sun, bathing him with special ginseng for jaundice treatment and even made him drink goat's milk and black grape juice so we are going back to SDMC tomorrow, hoping that he is free from jaundice. The best remedy for jaundice is actually breastmilk and it is his only food source so hopefully it helps too. Ady drinks a lot more nowadays compared to last week. Previously it was around 40ml to 2oz but now he could drinks up to 3.5oz per feeding session. I just knew that boys drink a lot more compared to girls. I planned to provide him only with EBM for few months at least but I'm pretty worried whether I would be able to do it because it is a bit of a struggle. Don't know how some people even have expired EBMs due to stock overload because in my situation, it is hard even to keep few for stock. I'm trying hard here so wish me luck on that ya ;-)
On another note, after one month waiting I finally received my online purchase. It was my first experience buying a handbag from an online seller who is living in US and I'm telling you it was not a pleasant one. Everything was okay until full amount was transferred but there was no news after that on status of the item. I have sent few emails and even posted on her FB wall, still no reply. I didn't mind how long it takes for the item to arrive but she should update her customers whether the item is available and whether it is already couriered. It pissed me off when she managed updating her FB status on new orders and sharing pics on other items for sale but didn't seem to care about her current customers. There were few other buyers who were experiencing the same problem as mine and they too didn't get any reply from her. One day her FB status mentioned that the bags were already couriered to Malaysia but I still didn't know whether mine was included in the shipment until someone who was also a customer gave me contact number of that seller's local associate. I sms-ed her and happy knowing that my bag was already here. Considered myself a bit lucky because there were still others who haven't got theirs. Anyway, let bygones be bygones. Hubby picked up the handbag earlier today and this is the new 'kid' in my handbag collection:
I didn't intend to buy a Coach bag actually but I was kinda desperate to have a tote bag that could fit my iPad since my handbags are mostly small in size. I only used my Gucci D Ring tote but I don't want to spoilt it carrying heavy stuff and over-use it (although I already did) because it is a sentimental value item (bought it in Bali during our honeymoon). Thought of buying a Longchamp at first but the one I had my eye on was already sold out in their boutiques here. Felt in love with Kate Spade's spring collection but they were priced at RM1000++. Quite expensive for the inital purpose so when I saw the seller's FB status and photos from Coach outlet's catalog on Coach Memorial Day Sale, it didn't take me long to place an order because that Coach bag was really cheap! From retail price at USD268 it went way down to only USD83 so I only paid RM380 for the bag, inclusive of shipping and service fees. Best of all, it's pink and matches my iPad casing, my pink mobile and my pinky camera too. Total awesome! :-D
