Berbuka with kesayangans Ramadhan 2014

We have missed the first two weekends of Ramadhan since Love was warded due to dengue.

That Friday after Love recovered, we went to TGI Friday's Paradigm Mall with my dearest Uniten clans. Incomplete since Mel, Farah and Mimi had to cancel last minute. But still so much fun nonetheless.

Look at my cranky baby

The venue selection was just so so. Traffic was super clear to Paradigm. We left at 615pm and we arrived just before buka. I booked a table earlier but they forgot our reservation. Not making me happy since they gave table at the outside and Khaira apa lagi.. running around lah since dekat dengan air pancut outside. Sigh.. But the surau in Paradigm was very convenient :)

My forever fav food in TGIF is always the Nachos!

Then, on Saturday we went to The Club for buka puasa with Love's relatives. Khaira by that time socialized well with kids near her age. Made our day ♥

Sunday, had our buka at my grandmom's crib. Sighh.. the only grandmom we have this year. I can't imagine how Raya would be..

Monday, went to Tony Roma's Citta Mall with Love's uni clans. Ok. Best gile. Service was superb. Food was delish. They threw us so many desserts and appetisers in the house. Would definitely go there again!! And boy, the surau was also convenient enough for me to bring Khaira in.

Ohh.. and Monday to Wednesday.. kids eat free! Khaira had so much fun because this particular branch is very kids friendly. And Tony Roma's always have the best caesar salad with grilled chicken. :)

Tuesday was Nuzul Quran. Had our usual buffet tradition at Kelab Darul Ehsan with the in laws. This year, they had violinist. Khaira was mesmerized so we had our buka peacefully. And later she danced non stop to the music. I have no complain at all on the food. But the surau, memang can be improved a lot lah. Hopefully next year.

Spot Khaira

The fourth weekend on Saturday, we had Papa John's all you can eat at IPC for buka with the Ampang clan. We bought the Groupon deal, RM 82 for 3 pax. The service in IPC was super duper slow.. totally wouldn't recommend this place for buka.

Then on Sunday, went to Cozy House for buka with my SABians dearest. Reservation please if you intend to buka here. And must place your order before 4pm on that day. No website for the menu, so must memorize the menu like that lah. So funny. Dah la ala carte served only after 8pm. But the food was super good so it was worth it.

The Friday just before Raya, I planned a date just the two of us with Love. Burger King + Hercules + all you can eat durian at SS2. It was a damn good one.

That Saturday, had dinner at Horizon Garden, Bangi with my family. It was a simple one, went back right after buka so we can have our Maghrib at home.

And the next day, Raya eve.. the tradition. We had all the ketupat and rendang for raya.

Alhamdulillah, ya Allah for giving me the opportunity to have this Ramadhan and Raya.. I must have been so blessed :)

Meeting my kesayangans

Now that the time to give birth is nearing, the nesting instinct becomes crazier.

I didn't know if I would be able to have my Raya or not, didn't know how fasting for a full term mommy would be. Thus, I was just so glad to get to meet my kesayangans before Ramadhan.

After all I'm gonna miss a lot during my confinement later on. Weddings of my two best friends and ohhh.. David Blaine in Malaysia :( lots of open houses.. sedihnye. Dahla I'm a Raya freak.

Anyhow, I thank Allah for the opportunity to meet my SABians bfs. Do you know that we are ALL pregnant this year? Hurrah!

And the opportunity to meet my dearest Unitenians at Mika Kaleel's first birthday.

Earlier that day, we went to Baby Adleena's aqiqah. I so love the matching outfits of these daddy-child though Khaira refused to look at the camera.

Anyhow, happy birthday Mika darling. And welcome to the world Baby Adleena. Semoga menjadi anak yang soleh/solehah dan sentiasa dalam perlindungan Nya. We love the both of you a lot.

Khaira's salon haircut

Felt like supermommy these past couple of weeks.

Love has been down with dengue, but life must go on especially that the EDD is nearing!!

I went grocery hunting, with a trolley full with stuff.. alone twice. Imagine me with perut so big and fasting some more to carry all that from trolley to car pun tak larat. But I believe Allah SWT sees every good deeds. Love always helped people around and true enough, both times, a guy helped me out with the heavy stuff. My doa so that good things will happen to both their wives in return.

House chores lagi, all the laundry and stuff.. Alhamdulillah, given the strength to manage everything. Especially with the online shopping, Lazada I love you!

But the most important thing was that, I managed to bring my little girl for her raya haircut. Her first salon experience. She was so calm, no gadget needed until the stylist started to blow dry her hair. Hehe..

Good job, Little K!!

Fighting with dengue

The nightmare began last Friday. Mom was down with fever since Wednesday. Khaira became feverish on Friday. And when I got home, I was feeling under the weather as well. Love cancelled his weekly futsal and headed straight home after his office's kenduri. He too fell sick after he massaged me.

Day 2.

Both Love and I were too weak to even drive to clinic. With the help of my brother, we arrived at the hospital and Khaira was given ubat bontot since the fever did not subside after normal medicine.

Day 3.

Decided to go back to clinic since Love and Khaira had temperature up to 40 degrees the night before. All of us including mom and brother who caught a fever as well by then had our blood test. Mom and I were ruled out of dengue immediately.  Love had a platelet count of 135,000 which was border line. Developed rashes on some part of his body.

Day 4.

After my pregnancy check up, we headed back to clinic since Love's temperature did not subside and he was having bad body ache. Blood test indicated that the platelet count dropped to 95,000 and he was given a referral letter. Went to Columbia Asia Puchong where he was confirmed to have dengue and admitted there straight away.

Day 5.

Aside from bad body ache and constant headache, fever was still around 38+ degrees. Platelet count dropped to 88,000. Brother was ruled out of dengue today.

Day 6.

White cell was normal but platelet count still dropped to 72,000. Doctor said as long as fever was there, hard for platelet count to go up again. He was out of drip but caused him extra dizziness and raised in temperature.

Day 7.

Drip again for a few hours to make him better. Temperature still around 38 degrees. Platelet count dropped to 62,000. Khaira was ruled out of dengue today.

Day 8.

Temperature slowly going down around 36 to 37 degrees. At noon hiked up a bit to 38. Platelet count still dropped to 58,000. Rashes started to itch and skin became thinner.

Day 9.

Temperature finally normal and platelet count went up to 95,000. Love has finally been discharged today!

In conclusion, it has been a tough week for all of us. I strongly believe Allah SWT wants to ease us up in other things, let's hope one of them is the delivery ♥
