Eat. Pray. Love Bali- Day 2

Assalamualaikum wbt.. It's been a while since I shared about our Eat. Pray. Love journey in Bali. My life was a bit hectic since Aulia' was hospitalize due to Rotavirus infection. On the other hand, mom also recently was hospitalized because she was complaining she had exactly the same symptom like last year . I, myself decided to further my study after thinking to do so for four years. We'll see how it goes. So, back on the farm, our day 2 of Eat.Pray.Love Bali continues with a light breakfast at the hotel. There is a cafe called Kopi Langit at the rooftop of the hotel. I had Seafood fried rice, fried banana with chocolate topping, fruits and pineapple juice but really sleepy to had breakfast that day. I can't remember what hubby had for his breakfast haha.

Aulia' down with Rotavirus

Assalamualaikum wbt.. Last week, Aulia' was down with the deadly Rotavirus. Rotavirus is scary. It's scary because there's a vaccine for it right? If it weren't harmful, they wouldn't have created a vaccine to save us from it. Well, I didn't vaccinate Aulia' and so to happen she contracted Rotavirus. Would she have contracted it if I had vaccinated her? Who knows? While I am no expert, I am also not a fortune teller.  Rewind a little and let me explain: I do not advocate all children being vaccinated or not. I have firm beliefs on the issue on who should and who should not vaccinate... so don't get your panties in a knot and start screaming that I'm what's wrong with the world.    So back on the farm, Aulia' is not vaccinated.  Either way some basic facts about Rotavirus: it is the most common cause of diarrhea among children, is very common and affects almost all children by the age of 2-5. It infects the intestinal tract, gene
