{health} Yoga

Standard

I’ve been doing yoga for quite some time…errr around 5 months if I’m not mistaken. I do the yoga privately with my friends and the teacher also my friend. So it is fun actually, doing something healthy with your best friends.
Before I did try yoga at some gym center, but I didn’t find it interesting. So I thought hey yoga is not my thing. Butttt after my best friend asked me to do the yoga together privately with a teacher and after 3 months then I am beginning to love yoga. Now I am totally in love with yoga thanks to Sherley and Novi 😘😘
I am still learning and not yet a pro…still newbie ☺️

Here are some of the photos:

{Beauty} What acne breakouts mean

Standard

Credit to : Lauren Conrad

I need to post this in my blog as a reminder.

Here are what your breakouts are telling you in five different zones of your face:

1. Forehead. Breakouts across the forehead are often triggered by stress or sleep deprivation. Make sure to log 7 to 9 hours of beauty rest a night to keep your forehead clear.

2. Above the brow. The area above the brow is affected by your immune system. Breakouts here tend to happen right before, after, or during a cold or flu. If you notice a breakout in this zone, slow down for a couple days, drink plenty of water and eat these 10 immune boosting foods.

3. Between brows. Breakouts between the brows can be caused by overindulgence of unhealthy foods or a food allergy. Cutting back on sugar, dairy, rich foods, and alcohol can help clear up skin in this zone.

4. Cheeks. Your cheeks are linked to your respiratory system. Smoking or breathing polluted air can cause breakouts here.

5. Side of chin. The sides of your chin are affected by hormones. Breakouts here occur around the time of your period and happen on one side or another depending on which ovary is ovulating that month.

{Maximus} Breastfeeding…

Standard

Kali ini gw mau cerita soal ASI.
Waktu Max lahir sih campur antara ASI sama sufor, krn Max lama di NICU. Nah pas pulang ke rumah, bersyukur banget bisa kasih Max full ASI sampai Max umur 5 bulan. Selama menyusui gw jarang banget pergi, bisa diitung dengan jari. Kenapa? Karena kalo pompa dapetnya ga mencukupi kebutuhan Max. Sehari cuma bisa pompa pagi doang itupun cuma dapetnya berkisar 90ml – 160ml. Jadi gw prefer untuk menyusui langsung. Nah seminggu setelah Max ulang bulan yang kelima, tiba-tiba ASI gw menyusut, ga tau kenapa, mungkin karna ga minum mama soya selama 2 hari atau karena datang bulan. Jadilah dikasih suplemen susu formula. Wahhh Max ga mau dikasih similac…nangis2 dia. Sedih banget deh…disusuin langsung ehhh boobiesnya* tongpesss 😦 terpaksa deh semua sufor gw beli: s26, enfamil, enfamil soya, nutribaby, anmum, Nan. Semua Max ga mau kecuali si Nan ternyata Max mau, walopun ngasihnya juga yang rada susah, mau-mau enggak gituh. Agak lega dan tenang jadi Max ga bakal kelaperan, dan ini bikin gw jadi ga stress. Karena kalo gw stress yang ada malah bikin produksi ASI gw menurun kan. Oh iya kenapa gw ga kasih ASIP ajah daripada sufor…ya karena gw ga punya stok ASIP, boro-boro mompa, disusuin langsung ajah masih kekurangan si Max.

Akhirnya gw curhat, nah sama temen-temen disuruh ke klinik laktasi. Sore itu juga gw langsung ngacir ke St. Carolus gading serpong. Yg lagi tugas suster Eka. Trus ditanyalah kan ya sama si suster & gw cerita panjang kali lebar πŸ˜€
Wejangan dari suster Eka:
1. Harus banyak makan sayur yang berwarna hijau, sop-sop berkuah
2. Banyak makan kacang-kacangan, boleh kacang hijau, kacang kulit, dan lain-lain
3. Hanya minum air putih sehari minimal 3 liter, ga boleh soda, teh, kopi
4. Positive thinking ASInya selalu cukup untuk baby kita
5. Kalo boobs* kanan yang di susuin, setelahnya boobs kiri kudu diperah pake tangan alias marmet, jangan dilihat berapa banyaknya, begitu pula sebaliknya kalo yang disusuin boobs kiri, setelahnya boobs kanan yang diperah

Info juga dari Mita (thanks yah Mita) untuk ikutan hypnobreastfeeding sama:

Gw belom sempet hubungin Fonda, neex week sih rencananya.

Sekarang lagi dilakuin ke 5 poin diatas plus tiap hari minum suplemen utk ASI seperti lactamam, fenugreek, asifit, gaia lactation support, moloco, milmor nf. Mudah-mudahan produksi ASInya berkecukupan untuk baby Max…Aminn.

{A visit} from Thailand

Standard

On 2002 I went to EF Boston for 9 months EY Program. It was really a fun and amazing time that I will always treasure. We came from many countries around the world. So lots of international friends :))

On 2010, a dear friend of mine from EF, Mr. Matthias Coosen from Amsterdam, visited Indonesia and me :)) Here’s the story about his visit

In this year another friend from EF, Mr. Poppy Dugary from Thailand, visited me while he participated the Thailand Trade Show 2012 at JCC. He stayed in Jakarta from 13-22 June 2012.
I met him on his booth at JCC on 15 June. Long time no see like for 9 years. Too bad I couldn’t stay longer because I had to go to Hermes Pacific Place to pick up my ghillies bag (YAY!)

On Sunday I picked him up at JCC, then we went dinner at Sushi Tei in senayan city, after that we went to Santika Hotel to get his luggages and went back straight to my house.

On Monday we played golf with hubby and my golf instructor, Mr. Yahya at Bogor Raya Golf.
(insert photo)
Since Mr. P wanted to see Hubby’s factory so after golf we went to Cikarang. On the way home, me & Mr. P stopped by Living World to have dinner at Han Gang. He requested to eat korean food πŸ™‚

On Tuesday, Mr. P had to meet his colleague, so I arranged it and we were gonna meet Mr. H in Grand Indonesia around 2pm. Since we had late breakfast aka brunch, so we didn’t want to eat first. We thought the meetup won’t take long time, so we were going to eat lunch after the short meetup. Deymmm, the short meetup became longer. Mr. H asked us to join with him to see Mr. Ambassador from Thailand, Pak Thanatip. Ofkors we had to accept the invitation :)) (apalagi gw yg belon pernah ketemu ambassador negara manapun pula…hahahah). So we went to Thailand embassy with Mr. H. Before we met the Mr. Ambassador, we thought it would only like 30 minutes, since we bet Mr. Ambassador would be so busy. Yet again we made wrong calculation πŸ˜€ The chit chat with Mr. Ambassador lasted 3 hours :)) Let me tell you, Pak Ambassador is very a humble, great and smart guy (after my hubby Ofkors :p ) He showed us his residence and his whole embassy. And the best part was Mr. Ambassador is using Natur and he wanted to meet with the owner. It was really an honor for me :)) such a delighted afternoon that i will always remember (thanks to you Mr. P!)
Mr. P and Mr. Ambassador planned to have an informal dinner with Mr. R for the next day. Actually on 20 June, Wednesday, Mr. P had to fly back to Thailand. But since Mr. Ambassador insisted him to have dinner so Mr. P changed his flight. Around 6pm we left Thailand embassy. On the car, Mr. P said that he could eat the whole chicken just by himself….hahahah poor baby so hungry. We went to Pacific Place and met Hubby there. We ate at Tesate.

On Wednesday, we just relaxing at home. Around 4pm we left the house and went to Sun City for the dinner. On the way to Sun City, Mr. P asked me to buy something to eat on the car. I was planning to stop by at McD butttt Mr. H called and told me that Mr. P had to wear Batik Long Shirt. Ooohhh nooo!!! So we made a quick stop at Danar Hadi melawai to buy batik. So we didn’t have time to stop by at McD. Again he’s in a hungry mode…oopsss πŸ˜€
We met hubby at Sun City. The informal dinner went well. I had such a good time. On the way back I asked Mr. P and hubby if whether they are invited or not for Thursday event, The Thai Night Party and they said they did not get invited, so did I.
after arrived at home, me and Mr. P talked until 3.30 am πŸ˜€ we were reminiscing the old days at EF. Mr. P asked me that for Thursday, his last day, he wanted to have a relaxing shopping and play billiard. Basicly he wanted to enjoy his last day without in hurry and in hungry mode πŸ˜€

On Thursday…yeayyy we were gonna enjoy this last day of him…NOT! ahhahah still today we were in a rush again. So here it goes, we left home at 4pm. we were heading to Senayan City, to shop, dinner, and play billiards. Before we reach Senayan City, it was around the corner of Beautika Resto, Mr H. called and he said that Mr. Ambassador wanted us to be at the Thai Night Party in Hotel Sultan Ballroom and we had to be there at 6.30pm AND Mr. P had to wear suit. Wha??!! And he was wearing tshirt and jeans :)) It was really funny actually…after I hung up the phone, we were laughing, like why we could not have a normal last day πŸ˜€ So in a hurry we stopped by at Senayan City to get him a G2000 long shirt and I bought white pants from Banana Republic. (I bought the pants because no way I am gonna attending the party with my leopard leggings….aaarrrrr). We made a pact that everytime he visit me, we should always bring formal clothes on the car, just in case we’ll get an important phone call again :))
We arrived at Sultan Ballroom around 6.40 pm. Again, Mr. P was in hungry mode, so we looked around the buffet. The party finish around 8.30 pm. after we said goodbye to Mr. Ambassador and Mr. H, we looked each other and we agreed we still had to play billiards :))) so we went to Q Billiards at Senayan City. we played until 12 am and we ate at KFC wolter mongonsidi. What a fun day!

On Friday…Last day! His flight was on 16.35 pm. Okay, shud be just chillin’, thinking gonna had lunch and a little shopping at Puri mall before we went to airport. At 9 am I got a phone call from Mr. H, and he said that Mr. P’s good friend asked Mr. P to get things from Jakarta, 2 ties from Salvatore Ferragamo and 1 long shirt white crisp slim fit from Van Laack. Okay, here was the thing,
1. Mr. P did not yet ready, did not take a shower yet. (important note: I already took a shower :p )
2. Salvatore Ferragamo locations at Senayan City
3. Van Laack locations at Pacific Place
4. Did not forget about lunch…we had to eat lunch before arriving at the airport
5. It was Friday…traffic jam everywhere!!!
But Thank God we managed to get all, had lunch at Aji Tei, bought things from batik keris, and arrived at terminal 3 Soetta perfectly in time.
