Hey Hey Hey Folks! We have now reached to the month of March. And only a few more days till we reach Ramadhan. MasyAllah. And the big questions that many will ask… *DRUMROLL please* is…

Have you potong kain yet? (Have your send your material) Here in Asia, especially Brunei Darussalam. For Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid Mubarak Festive Season) we like to send our materials for stitching to make lovely national dress called Baju Kurongs (that can be designed with normal cut or fashion & trendy) It all depends on the mood of the individual.

I on the other hand, prefer to purchase ready-made and my girls will have theirs custom-made. I guess it because that I know my dress that has been sent for stitching will only last for less than 6 (SIX) months. haha. Yes it’s true.

This year however, I plan to have a different plan. To Try & Fit Into My Old Baju Kurong From Last Year. 😀 Now that would be a miracle. How you may ask?  Check this out:-

World Breastfeeding Week August 2015

image

This year’s theme or motto for World Breastfeeding Week is to support working mums or Work At Home Moms who are breastfeeding. To ensure that they get mutual support from the working environment by allowing flexible time and also arranging for a place for mothers to pump.

When I first started to breastfeeding, I was working in a call-centre environment. I have to admit, when you are first learning the curbs and trying to maintain your breastpumping schedules on a 8 to 5 working schedule is kinda tough. Especially when you’re glued to the phone the entire day. And it would feel uncomfortable if you had to pump at your own table even with a shawl or a peek-a-boo breastfeeding shawl (as the call centre team also consists of male co-workers). Alhamdulilah the location had a prayer room and also a nursery. Early morning when I arrived at work for the early bird shift, I had to pump at the nursery. And by afternoon if the nursery was occupied, after conducting my daily prayers (Zohor and Asar) I would pump for 10mins to 15min just to stimulate my breasts. And would get about 2oz or 4oz per session.

When I looked back, breastfeeding during the eras of my first-born has evovled so much now eg: Breastfeeding awareness at the local clinics and advertisements on breastfeeding such as posters, breastfeeding knowledge sharing sessions etc. I have to admit only till my second born did I fully understand the importance of breastfeeding.

Now education on breastfeeding is no longer something of the past. I am glad that now people are aware on the importance on supporting breastfeeding. When I visit some shopping complexes and other public places such as government hospitals or clinics they provide a room especially for breastfeeding. I hope and pray that the youths and young mothers will continue this practise and will stand up for their rights to breastfeed in their workplaces. Having a circle of friends who have the same mindset or same mission as you can help to keep you motivated at times when you feel like there is a lack of support or when you feel the demotivation spirit slowly creeping in and whispering in your left ear that you should consider infant formula when all hope is gone. Remember this: Breast is Best.

Happy World Breastfeeding Week to all mommies around the world wherever you maybe. My love goes out to you. ❤

Eid Mubarak : Then and Now

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir dan Batin. A blessed Eid Mubarak to all and may you have a blessed Eid.

As much as I am sad that Ramadhan has gone. And praying that I we will see next Ramadhan InsyAllah, ameen ameen Ya Rabb. This year Eid Mubarak I have had the chance to see, experience and feel the different aura and environment of how Eid (Hari Raya as we like to call it here in Brunei) is celebrated outside of Brunei. This year we managed to visit Kota Kinabalu. My husband’s relative is located in Papar and we had the chance to visit the neighbouring country. We witness on how Hari Raya was celebrated there. Despite the different culture and traditions, you can still sense the Hari Raya spirit in the air. With music of hari raya songs blazing in the shopping complexs, hari raya songs of new and old playing back to back on the Radio stations. And meeting old faces of long distance relative makes the heart warm. The food is oh so my…a mixture of sweet, spicy and tangy of different varities of home-cooked meals. What touched me the most the scene of when we returned from KK to return to my husband’s aunt place (as we were staying there overnight). Its was past 12am ish and the streets were dark (literally dark as there is no street lamps) and the brightest house on the very end welcomed us of cheer, children playing fireworks, bright & colorfull festive lights and relatives from each corner of the village welcomed us with such hospitality and kindness. The warmth of the moment melted my heart away as it had brought me to a flashback moment of my childhood in the 90s and how we celebrated Hari Raya.

Back in the 90s
When I was growing up, the joy and cheer of Hari Raya can be felt as the environment was filled with young children visited every home on the street and was invited in for a glass of cold beverages, cookies of all kinds and of course, green packs for each child. The cheer of lighting fireworks during the night, the spirit of spring-cleaning the homes and re-arranging the living rooms for family and friends to get comfortable during their visits. Sights if the males going to mosques to perform their prayers and giving Zakat.

Now in the 21st Century
Now in our Era, many things have changed. There are less visits by the children, as there are all grown-up now. And more into virtual games then fireworks. Huhu. And the tradition of what used to be our joy of walking to visit our neighbours have now slowly faded. But on the other hand the Traditional Family portraits are now made of selfies and wefies, which is hip and kinda fun. Capturing moments that you can store at the palm of your hand and you can see them whenever you like.

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies

Traditional family portraits are now called Selfies or Wefies.

As the ages come and gone. There are much differance of Hari Raya then and now . Apart from aging each year, I feel that some traditions are slowly fading. Hoping that youth will still carry on the true meaning of Eid Mubarak (Hari Raya). That is asking for forgiveness, being thankful that we are still well and alive and not forgetting to give to those who have less.

Here The Deens would like to wish everyone a blessed Eid Mubarak.

Blogging 101: Day 7 – Keepin it Real by personalizing your blog

Its been almost a week since I took up the free blogging course by The Blogging University : The Daily Post. For today’s post is to create a personalize blog by creating a fun, wicked header image.

If you have read through my blog, you will notice that only recently I took blogging serious. Previously I was blogging to share on my experience, self-experiments and sharing on products that I loved and enjoyed consuming on a daily basis. That is food & health supplements. This year I took the iniative to step-up the blogging game by focusing more in-depth on what I hope and wish for my blog to acheive by the end of this year. And one of the ways is by joining this free online course that is conducted by The Daily Post : Blogging University.

Now we at day 7. What I wanna share is how I created my Header Picture. Back in 2012, I named my blog ‘TwentyFirst Century Momma’ because my focus back then was to sell breastfeeding accessories and share motherhood journey and experiences. Only recently this year, I decided to purchase the Domain dot.com (.com) and changed my blog domain from wordpress.com to 21stcenturysarah.com. The roots and foundation of why I created this blog will still remained rooted which is Motherhood, Breastfeedings, being a Bookworm, Beauty, Energy, Health and Wellness will always stay close to my heart. By investing my time into how my blog layout, images, topics and content is very important to me. And I wanted to ensure the origins of my blog is pure and closet to its natural origin (real, honest and close to the truth). My header I chose a customize image from Canvas Image Editor where you can select FREE open source images.

My header tagline is ‘The Purest Of It’s Origin Is At It’s Core’. This statement I had as my MSN Status (yes back in the day when I used MSN to chit-chat). The story of how this favourite motto of mine came to mind was when I was looking for a unique phrase to express the self-discover I had back then in the year 2007. A self journey to wearing the Hijab full-time. Until now, this motto of mine has a special place in my heart.

Now this year, am hoping to keepin it real on my blog by personalizing my blog with bits and pieces that represents me (in someway). And at the same time hoping to get inspiration from others bloggers on how they conduct the placement of the logos, headers and headerlines and tagline. Can’t wait to surf the posts.

To Blog or Not To Blog? Is that a question?

We all have heard the term: “To be or not to be, that is the question”? In this case, to blog or not to blog, that is the question. These few months has been a wild roller coaster. To be honest, I have never found myself in a position where I have hit the backspace button more in my life. At times, I have had trouble writing as if a huge gigantic writer’s block that is stuck to the inside of my skull and working it’s way like a magnetic chip. After a while, I felted that there was something bothering me, coz I was distracted by many thoughts in my head. Then I decided to sit-down and have a little ‘ME’ time and wanted to sought-out the things that has been bothering me. And here is what I found:-

1. FEAR

FEAR is a motivation

A few months back, I have decided to resign from my current workplace as my youngest daughter needs to go for Speech Therapy sessions and Early Development Programs sessions at least 3 (Three) times in a week at the local Child Development Centre. And these sessions will take 1 hour up to 3 hours in a day that will last for the next 6 (six) months. Both my girls were diagnose with Learning Difficulties and Speech Delay, with my youngest she had NASB (Negative Attention Seeking Behaviour) where she could have mild to severe tantrums at times when she felt frustrated if she could not express herself. As a concern parent, I decided to take a leap of faith and handed in my 2 (two) months resignation letter. And time flies by very fast and this month will be my last month titled as a ‘Working’ mum. Only did it hit me when some of my relatives were asking me ‘What am I going to do next’? And it occurred to me that, will my plan to run a full-time online business with a part-time income work for me? What happens if it has gone down the drain? How are we going to find an alternative income to pay the bills, to buy groceries, to buy school necessities for the little ones during back-to-school seasons, to purchase necessities during next Ramadhan and Raya (Eid Mubarak)? There was a voice inside my head that grows louder and louder by each and every day as the days on my calendar count-down. The voice was so loud that the tiny, little whisper of hope was almost gone. Then chills ran down my spine, as I realised that I feared of what the future will be.

2. LEAP OF FAITH

Now that I was able to identify the factors that created the writer’s block inside my head. I admitted to myself that I feared of something that was not certain and that it was all in my head, imagining and envisioning of things that could bring negative impact to me. I told myself and kept repeating to myself that I took ‘A Leap of Faith’ and why should I fear of something that is uncertain, when I have Allah. Only then it hit me. These 4 words meant something to me:-

“A LEAP OF FAITH”   

Leap : to transition / transport one place to another.

Faith: To believe in your faith and that your faith will guide you.

When we believe, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.

Is prescribed upon you [the] fighting while it (is) hateful to you. But perhaps [that] you dislike a thing and it (is) good for you; and perhaps [that] you love a thing and it (is) bad for you. And Allah knows while you (do) not know. Ayat Al-Baqarah, 2:216

I told myself that if I kept on thinking of negative thoughts, my body will take me to that direction. Apa yang kitani fikirkan adalah doa (What we think is apart of our prayers). Think positive, have the right intentions, set a positive mind, plenty of Doas & Prayers, plenty of Usaha (Actions), Istiqamah (Consistency), Tawakal (Trusting in Allah’s Plan) and always and always tanamkan rasa Syukur (Appreciation and Thankfulness)

Motivation.FEAR04

On the other side, Alhamdulilah that I am able to identify the bumps and curves that are affecting my girls development. And I know in my heart that this sacrifice will be an investment for them and their future. Now I end this post with a question:-

“To Blog or Not to Blog” It is a choice. And we all have a choice, a choice to fear or a  choice to identify that fear and do something about it.

Much Love; Sarah@21st Century Sarah
