Women Empowerment Day

Assalamualaikum wbt..

My company's Public Relation (PR) and Marketing department organized an event called Women Empowerment Day. So women from all departments (Engineering, Procurement, Finance, HR,  Legal and Project Development Department) gathered today in the conference room to celebrate women, raise awareness of women's health and beauty and to make positive steps towards greater empowerment of women.

There was about 50 of us during that day and two speakers from M.A.K.N.A (National Cancer Council Malaysia) and BidanKota was invited to give a talk on health and beauty.

It serves as an important reminder to us in the company who work really hard to look after on our own health and inner beauty. The issue on cancer are myriad. But today the speaker from M.A.K.N.A was focusing on the breast cancer issues and understanding breast cancer. The representative from M.A.K.N.A was explaining on the pros and cons of the standard breast cancer screening tests, including mammography and clinical breast exam, as well as MRI. She explained on what happens if a test shows something abnormal. In rare cases, breast cancer can occur in men. Well, do you know about this? We just get to know it today.

The other interesting part of today's event was when the founder of BidanKota, Puan Safi Abd Rahman,  gave her speech on the traditional medication and massage especially for post-natal treatment. There was also a live demonstration on basic light make up for office, traditional tea making using ginger, lemongrass, and mas cotek leaf!

What I learned today:
Make your own lemongrass tea

2 lemongrass stalks
Honey or sugar to sweeten (optional)
Boiling water
I tea bag
Juice from ½ lime

1. Cut off the root end of the lemongrass stalk and remove any of the dry outer leaves. Gently bruise the base of the stalk with a rolling pin.
2. Tie the lemongrass in a knot ad place on a cup and sweeteners if using.
3. Pour in the boiling water. Add a tea bag and remove as soon as the water is golden brown.
4. Add lime juice to taste and serve with a lemongrass stirrer.

Just so you know, drinking a cup of lemongrass tea after a large meal will take away that full feeling and will aid in digesting the food just consumed along with helping to remove unhealthy food additives, chemicals and excess fats. It also aids in the relief of constipation, keeping the bowels working properly and removing toxins to keep our body healthy and energetic.  Interesting fact isn't it?

Adding more fun to this event, Puan Safi held a guess and win contest and we had a photo session before the event ends.

Again this month, the PR and Marketing Department will organize an event involving the employees and Pertubuhan Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (RACTAR). This is the first charity event organized by our company.There will be treasure hunt activity with 40 kids from RACTAR at Lake Garden Kuala Lumpur on 26 May 2013..

Well done PR and Marketing. We are looking forward for more events like this:)

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays. Her new doll with blinking eyes and annoying sound..  So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks

Carnaval Churrascaria

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.. Last week we had an invitation from our boss for a departmental dinner.This is the third time I join in with the whole Renewable Energy team for official  makan-makan . So we had this dinner session at a weird place named Carnaval Churrascaria, (I still had a problem of pronouncing this restaurant's name) somewhere near to the Atria Mall in Damansara Jaya SS22, Petaling Jaya. Carnaval Churasscaria is one such Brazilian Restaurant, decked out with Brazilian national colour of yellow and green. It is a brazillian style where all the meats are grilled and the waiter come to each table with knives and skewered meat and slice it for us.. For non-MEAT lovers, you may opt for the non-meety buffet..they actually have rice, pasta, potatoes, salads and some seafood. For those who loves garlic bread, you should try their garlic bread which mixed with cheese..Two thumbs up!! yummy!  

Aulia' birthday party

Assalamualaikum wbt I am finally getting around to share few photos from Aulia's birthday party from a couple weeks ago. We had the greatest afternoon at my in-law's place with siblings, cousins and relatives celebrating our little girl turned TWO and Eid:) I think it's really fun to throw parties for our baby. I know she won't remember it, but it's her birthday and in my opinion, it's more about celebrating everyone in the family and we all made it! What a great year! I am so thankful my in-laws help me with last-minutes stuffs. Sunday morning was hectic! SILs had to pick up the cake and the boys spent the morning finishing off some of the decors (tied the banner together, arranging the furnitures, etc.). The tables, catering foods, fruits, candies and chocolate fountain were also delivered that morning. I took a few pics beforehand, but too busy with Aulia' to take any pics during the party. (My BIL manage to took pictures of the party. Pheww!).
