(4) Ongoing temptation

“Hello everyone, I’m 5 months already. Now I can rolling over from my back to my tummy. 

I’m now can grasp thing very fast. Which caused my Mama almost chocked while drinking or eating. 

I guess I inherits her ‘temptation on food’. “


Talking about the temptation, let me continue the story of my pregnancy for the part four (4).

This drink I must have early in the morning, instead of tea. I also brought it to work, the only drink that can get in my bowel system. ahaha.  Or… this one below :

I always craved for Justea Anggur even in the middle of the night.  It was a MUST drink, at least once a week. huhu.

Now let’s talk about food.  It was weird when I discovered I can stand spicy food when I was pregnant.  All the food I dislike were my favourite then.  KFC Hot & Spicy, Nasi Ayam Penyet, Sarawak Laksa (it must be Sarawak Laksa Kampung Patingan) and the most top of them all was DOUBLE CHEESEBURGER. Luckily at that time, there was no promotion of triple cheeseburger. ahaha.

I remember craving it like almost everyday.

I even craved for sweet food such as Cadburys Hazelnut Chocolate (Large packet, which I can eat in one go), Chocolate cake, Big Apple Donuts, Ice Cream with Nuts Sprinkles on the top… Ahaha. I wonder why it must have been specific for certain food.

As for fruits, I don’t crave for something sour. Instead, I was craving for something fresh especially Jambu Batu & FUJI APPLE… Must be FUJI Apple. Not an ordinary apple. muhuhu.

Buah hatiku….. Everyday I must get those apples!

People told me if I was craved for salty & sour food, I might be pregnant with a boy. If I was craved for sweet food, I might be pregnant with a girl.  I was confused with myself then, because my temptation were full of mix tastes. ahahaha.

Weekend temptation project

Last weekend I did my first trial to make Blueberry Cheese Tart. It’s been awhile since I stop baking.


There were many challenges before I started my first trial. Almost every supermarket didn’t sell Philadelphia Cheese. I wonder why. Dah pupus ke brand cheese tu?


Well it doesn’t stop me. So I bought tatura cream cheese instead. The project was successfull. ahaha. Even Amani also helping me by dipping her hand inside the blueberry jams. 

p/s: I have a problem tasting my own cooking. Feels tasteless.

March 2012 Drug

March drug for this year.


Sugar & Spice from Jules Standbridge. It was a gift from Akma. I thanked her for giving me such a delicious drug. By reading this book, makes me eager to bake and had a dream to become a passteure. Well, currently my temptation is Blueberry Cheese Tart.


I just print out the recipe and plan to bake it this weekend. Weheee.. P/s: Flipping through a cookbook is my favourite. Hehe.

(3) To KK with Love

We’d been planning our ‘trip to the moon’ 5 months before the date.  I was very anxious and looked forward for the trip.  The saving I had keep from my online business would be my budget for the trip. It was the first time me and DearDear fly together and it was also the first time we went to KK. In my mind, there were tones of planning, including going to Manukan Island… if possible we wanted to go to Kundasang as well.

But then… kita hanya merancang, Allah menentukan segalanya. Apart from the ‘midnight sickness’, there was another ‘dugaan’ I had to face. One day at the office, I discovered ‘spotting’.  I was very nervous and afraid at that time. In my mind I had one word. ‘Miscarriage?’ Rasa nak nangis pun ada time tu.  So I text my sister, cuz she also experienced the same problem when she was pregnant withAdam before.  My sister told me to go check-up with the doctor. So I rush to the doctor… (On that day, our boss planned nak belanja makan for the winner during our annual dinner. I had to cancel it as well.. wuwu)

Arrived at the clinic, the doctor scanned me. She said it was normal spotting during earlier pregnancy. Unless, the colour getting darker like fresh blood, then it is called miscarriage… Lega.. tapi masih susah hati. Back at home, terus research pasal spotting on the first trimester.  I had to limit my movement and couldn’t lift up heavy things. I must clear up my mind and never get stressed… Every day I prayed to Allah SWT that this is only a part of his ‘ujian’ for us.

Then it worried me about our trip to KK. Should I go or just cancel it? My friend advice me to cancel it. My sister told me to go on with the plan but be extra careful. Plus, ticket pun dah beli. And… thought that this is the only ‘gate away’ for me to release the tensed.

So there we go… we flew to the moon… hehe. (p/s: the picture above was taken by me during the journey. my fav!)

Suprisingly, my cousins (Lina & Liza) were the same flight with us. It was unexpected and unplanned. So we board together and check-in the same hotel…. even went to sightseeing together-gether lah. Since Liza had went to KK once, so she became our tour guide. hehe.

— My cousins : Lina & Liza.

Well, the spotting keep continuously ‘spotted’. Most of the time I took a rest in the hotel. Luckily our hotel room had a seaview. I still had the morning sickness, but when I went out to shopping the nausea feeling was gone. Bwahahaha… DearDear pun heran.  ‘Mun shopping berjam-jam tahan nya. Pande ilang rasa mual..” Itulah repakan sinis DearDear terhadap ku.

The first kedai makan I searched in KK was McDonald.  Cuz that’s the only food which I can take with appetite. hehe.  I remember Lina’s colleague belanja us makan seafood on the first night in KK. Everything were tasteless to me.  Remember, I had a night sickness. Maybe that’s one of the reason why I didn’t enjoy the food at night.   I can only eat something like ‘umai’ that night. The rest I surrender.

Our prior activities was window shopping and eating. muhahaha… Since I was searching for McDonald (Walopun Kuching ada McD, tapi… sampai di KK masih jugak nak McD. “Macam sik kalak nemu McD jak…” sindiran sinis my DearDear lagi.. ceh), I kagum la almost every shopping complex in KK ada McD. So, don’t ask where we had our lunch… Mostly McD. Sian DearDear & my cousins. Bwahahaha! McD memang makanan Amani rasanya. Sampai 9 bulan, only McD in my heart. My younger brother (Edos) always ‘tapau’ McD burger for me kalau mengidam tengah2 malam.. muhuhu..

Our most visited places. Pasar Phillipines – 1 Borneo. Sebab nak pegi Pasar phillipines tu cuma jalan kaki je. And then gi 1 Borneo just naik charter bus. hehe.  Of course we regret couldn’t go to the island.  But nevermind, maybe some other day. And in future, we will go again now with Amani going along. hehe.

I bought baggy trousers and shirts.  At that time, I already feel uncomfortable wearing tight trousers and shirts. I also easily exhausted. But the worst part was during 8-9 month pregnancy compare to the first trimester. And then another weird habit, I like to smell the morning dew. To me, the fresh air in the morning smells so sweet and refreshing. Until I get back to Kuching, every morning I will put my head out of the window and breathe in the morning fresh air… something I must do every morning.

Talk about the smell I hated the most and the drinks & foods I’m addicted to, I’ll continue for the next entry.
