If you haven’t known by now, I love stars. And their exotic yet meaningful names. That’s why I named my first born ‘Aldebaran’. When I got pregnant for the second time and it’s a boy again, I was happy cause then I will be able to name him with another favorite star of mine, ‘Altair’. Having two…

What my boys said

Me: “Sayang, is it true that I am too temperamental?” Him: “Of course you are. I…

First OB-GYN Visit

I told myself that if I ever got pregnant again after Zal, I would love to have Dr. Citra again as my gynae. She was the gynae who helped me delivering Zal two years ago. And alhamdulillah, it happened. It wasn’t easy to get an appointment with her. When I called NUH last month after I…
