My Back and Alin's Tummy

I don’t believe it. It’s been 4 days and my shoulder blades still hurt. I have tried everything; YokoYoko, koyok, putting my pillow out in the sun, heat pads. Nothing works. Mom said I would just have to wait it out.

I’ve been sleeping on my back, straight as a mummy for 3 nights and I tell you it’s not very comfortable. Usually I sleep on my side, partially on my tummy, with my booster pillow between my legs. One hand would be under my head, another would be on my waist. From an aerial view, I look like I’m dancing the tango. But at least I’m comfortable.


Hubby drove to Melaka today for a morning meeting. Took Dania with him. She was so excited, siap pakai bedak, combed her hair, even though she hadn’t taken her shower yet. Funny little girl.

Dina was asleep when I went to work. This morning she woke up at 5.30am, had her feed but then refused to go to sleep. She instead demanded I stay up with her, discussing the country’s current political state and the tragic news of the Pitts breakup.

Ok, so I made that up. But man, that gal is one talkative chick. Cooing and cooing away, like nobody’s business.

It was kind of cute despite the fact I really wanted to catch a few more minutes of sleep.


Congrats to my colleague, Alin, on getting pregnant. After trying for 2 years plus, all prayers have been finally answered. My piece of advice, get all the rest while you still can. Once the baby is here, say goodbye to 8-hour sleep. You’ll be lucky if you can get 2 hours at one go. Hehehee.

Puan Sri, have you tried what the African Khoikhoin and the Bantu tribes use, 'Harpagophylum procumbens' or Devil's Claw... it may relief the pain!

Huh? What's that? You're asking me to do voodoo on myself? Gile ke? Afterwards, got horns coming out from my head, mampos kang.
