CONFINEMENT CENTRES & HOMES IN PENANG

To all parents or expectant parents,
Nowadays, doing survey for confinement centres is one of the crucial things in your planning to have babies.
Many mothers are going to confinement centres instead of hiring confinement ladies.
I'm sharing some information on confinement centre contacts, massage service and full moon gift set service here.
As I know I can't get the compilation of these contacts from the Internet.
Hopefully, this information does help in your searching.
You are always welcomed to add any comments (good or bad about any of the centres/services).
I'm aware that many mothers have visited my blog for title of "My Life at De Garden" when doing their searching for confinement centres in the net.
Therefore your opinions/comments might be useful for those viewers.
If you have any new contacts, you may share them here as well.

THE UGLY SIDE OF POS MALAYSIA

This incident happened a few months back.
My parents received this slip from their letter box.
We were curious they supposed to send the item to our door step.
I asked my daddy if they went out that day, but they didn't.
They were at home the entire day not only that the entire week they didn't go out.
This means the personnel from Pos Malaysia did not perform their duty.
They just simply put the slip into the letter box and lazy to go upstairs to send us the item.
They assume we all went out for work or something.
Maybe based on their experience 80% of the recepients will not be at home during office hour weekdays.
Look at the slip, they didn't put the time they were here (my parents' home).
And this will trouble us to collect the item personally at Bayan Lepas Pos Office.
What kind of service they are providing?
This is not the right way.
I'm speechless......

MY TOY - BABY'S ROOM (9/7/2010)

This is my toy - Handicraft.
I bought 1 set of the DIY Shop which contains of all the material needed to build a room/shop (depending on your preference).
There are many types of room/shop i.e. Baby's Room (the one I've done), Flower Shop, Phamarcy Shop, Noodle Restaurant, Bakery, Rose Garden & etc.......).
Since this is the first time I'm doing, I've chosen the most simple one.
Shall buy a more complicated models soon.
It's time consuming to build it part by part but it's nice.

The Material

The Frame

The Toys

The Furniture

Baby Cot, Diaper, Milk Bottle & Books

SRJK (C) Kwang Hwa - 6M Class of 1990 20th Anniversary (1/5/2010)

It's 20th anniversary!!!
Gosh, time flies!!
We left our primary school for 20 years already.
1st May 2010, we were having our 20th Anniversary Gathering.
The organizer sets 1st May will be our gathering date every year.
So that people will have less excuses to be absent for the gathering (1st May - Labour Day).
We went back to our primary school to have a walk and refresh our lovely childhood stories in the school.
Our school has changed a lot.
There are 2 new huge buildings.
The old classrooms, library, hall, staff rooms have been demolished.
Left only our s0-called new building during our generation (standard 5 & 6 building).
Their new pupils' life have been upgraded.
They have at least 6 fans in a classroom and even fans in their toilets. (unbelievable huh...)
Below are some photos taken on that day.

SRJK (C) Kwang Hwa Logo

Our Old School Hall (has been demolished)

Our school backyard has been changed to a nice field.
Last time was just like an abandoned land with sand only.

Another view from our school backyard.

A view of the old building (last time was our new building) from backyard.
Ground floor is the canteen.

The space for us to line up last time (in front of the canteen) has been changed to a nice garden.

A few artistic arches in the garden.

Our 6M classroom. Our tables are still in used.
But the classroom has been converted to Bilik Kemahiran.

Another pictures of our tables.
Good quality of material can last more than 20 years.

The New School Hall

The school hall consists of 3 badminton courts whereby our old hall had only 1 court.
The shuttle cocks can always hit the ceiling due to the hall was too small.

An eye sore of the school.
This classroom is in the new building but look at the cleanliness.
What a shame for the pupils do not know how to take care of the school property.
Do you notice a small white board on your left.
The board is used for jotting down what & when is submission of the homework.
Serve as a reminder purpose.
Our very very old Cocoa Tree.
She is still there with good condition.

Another view of the old building.

Look at the canteen now.
Nicely renovated with colourful benches and good lighting system.
Last time we were using broken wooden benches.
Our picture taken at the canteen.

At the 2nd floor of the old building.
That floor used to be our standard 5 classrooms.

Our classroom 6M.
Last time we had 6 classes for each standard - M (Merah), K (Kuning), H (Hijau), U (Ungu), B (Biru), J (Jingga).
Now they have another 2 more - E (Emas) & P (Perak)

Our picture taken at 6U due to 6M classroom was locked.
Our friend here was complaining the duster was badly broken and said that he'll donate 1000 duster to the school.
Most probably an empty promise. *laugh*

The wooden rostrum has been replaced by a stainless steel one.

Our picture in front of the main building.

6M Classmates

Only 3 ladies of 6M attended the gathering.
Hopefully next year's gathering will have more participants!

My TV is BACK!!! (6/4/2010)

My TV was out of order on the first day of Chinese New Year, 真是大吉利是!
Few days before, my DVD player was down.
What can I say, 鸿运当头.
We missed all the good programs during CNY, SIEN!!!!
1 month plus without a TV in our home.
Brought for repair mid of March and finally came back this week.
Now I know, life without a TV is fine for me.
But life without a PC (with Internet connection) then my life will be miserable. ^_^

MY LIFE AT DE-GARDEN (11/1/10 - 7/2/10)

After the discharge from Pearl Maternity Hospital, I was sent to De-Garden Confinement Center for a 1-month stay. At first, I really got home sick although my hubby came to visit me & my baby everyday. Later on, I got used to it already.

My life at the confinement center was quite routine: eat, sleep and feed.
Chinese believes that a lady after delivery cannot take bath for at least 12 days.
We have people cook for us, do the laundry for us and taking care of our babies.
What else can we do at the center?

We have 5 meals per day:
8:30am Breakfast
11:30am Lunch
2:30pm Tea Break
5:30pm Dinner
8:30pm Supper

It's really hard to loose weight during the confinement month and also it's not advisable to be on diet on this particular month.
Chinese will eat a lot of herbs to recover the body and all the herbs are the heaty type.
My body was not used to the heaty herbs so my nose was bleeding a little bit.
This is so called 虚不受补.

This confinement center has wifi provided.
We can go online any time.
However, my hubby only brought me my notebook after 2 weeks.
His concern was I must spend my time to rest for the 1st 2 weeks as he knows that once I go online I'll be spending my time playing games.
He is right actually.
I understand his concern is for my own good.

Luckily I have nice room mates (Seok Foon & Sarah) to chat with, not that boring.
Not only that, I know new friends like Xuang Xuang, Yuet Kit, Josephine, Esther, Xiao Qi.
We had mama talk and stories sharing.
Miss the moment actually.

Another activity for the mothers is suntaning the babies (those who got Jaundice).
See the pictures below.




I'm sharing some pictures of my confinement center and you can see the environment of the center. Quite comfortable & clean.
