Dutch Lady Friso GUT - Growing Up Together


Oman and I has turned three recently. It is so much wonderful to see him growing up handsomely in front of my eyes, as well as to see the growth of motherliness in myself.

Refreshing the whole journey, the excitement starts immediately after I saw the 2 red lines from the pregnancy test kits. Since then, I did everything believable to protect the safety and health of this miracle. I did also prepare and equip myself to be a good momma. I browsed the internet, I read books, I learnt from others experience and I also received free tip-top consultation from none other than anyone else, doctor mama & doctor mama in law. (Hello ladies! Ahem! :P)

I still remember his first kick that made me half hysteria. It was really an awesome hello from him. Day by day, I was so looking forward to receive more and more of his kicks and movements. Sometimes I just placed my finger palms onto my belly or just called him ‘baby.. baby’ and he would respond to it by doing somersaults in there. That’s how mother- baby communications are developed and it was beyond amazing!

Oman’s arrival to the world is the beginning of my parenting story. There were many chapters in this book with different expectation, findings and implementation.

First few days and first few months.Get to know his body, mostly showing-off. :P Oman was also introduced to some colorful friends.

A month before his first birthday, we went to visit Zoo Negara. Of all the animals, he was only interested with the fish. Like this we should bring him to the fish market instead. Haha.

Left: The second time he’s having fever, I have acknowledged that I should keep tepid sponging him to bring down the temp. He didn’t mind to be wrapped like makcik-makcik.
Very cooperative.

Right: At one year and three months old, Oman and I handmade a special Father’s Day Card to Dadda. He was not only painted the cards, he painted his leg, the floor and the slippers too. Too hardworking.

Last Ramadhan, we made Kuih Cuk Keria together. Very easy to recognize which ones made by him.

I asked myself what I really want as a mom, and what do I give to my son, for more years to come?

Apart from continue watching my son grows up positively, healthy and be happy, I would also want to explore, to keep learning and experience many things as I could do together with him. For me, this togetherness is an important key to an excellent parenting.

Well, I am feeling impressed when I got to know that there is a campaign who all behind this concept where the activities are created to allow parents to team-up with their kids. And because I am very much confident that there are many modern or progressive mommies out there who enjoy playing an active part in the growing up process, who inspire to physically, mentally and emotionally raise our kids in holistic manner, let me share with all of you what I was talking about.

Click HERE and you will get what I mean.

Growing Up Together or GUT is a concept driven by Friso, a company who is very committed in providing a balanced nutrition and protection from the inside to children growth. With the main objective to light the journey of motherhood, the joy of growing up together with our children, and to realize that experience is the children’s best teacher, FRISO believes that with a strong and good GUT, our children will be well equipped with the necessary strengths to fight off diseases and develop a healthy mind and body.

Diarrhea and Constipation are common childhood ailments which we mothers, at our best, need to ensure that the immune system or our children is strong and functioning properly. Friso has done many researches to continue developing best dairy nutrition that increase the good bacteria count and become the booster for children defense system. They called it Friso Gold which contains DHA, AA3 and SA to speed up information relay between brain cells, which aid a growing child’s overall development.

Friso Gold specially formulated with P2 Dual System. These combinations of 2 Prebiotics and 2 Probiotics protect the children from the inside and help increase intestinal bifidobacteria.

Don’t worries mommies. Cause this is a healthy live bacteria that helps in reducing diarrhoea cases.

There was one very early morning, at 5am like that, i heard Oman crying. When i approached him, i saw his eyes were tightly closed but he still crying. He cried for his Nenni, my mother in law.

I called his name softly, recited some Surah, hugged his body and he was then alright.


That morning, after he woke up from his sleep, we had these conversation;


Momma: Oman mimpi ye malam tadi?

Oman: Mimpi tu apa, momma?

Momma: hmmm.. mimpi tu macam.. hmmm.. Oman tengah tidurkan, pastu tiba-tiba je Oman pergi tempat lain. For example, Oman tido tapi masa Oman tengah-tengah tidur tu, Oman jumpa Atuk KFC. Tapi Oman tido sebenarnya.

Oman: Ooooooo...

Momma: Yeke dia faham ni?? (Dalam hati).

Momma: Semalam Oman mimpi Nenni yer? Momma dengar Oman sebut-sebut nama Nenni? Macam sedih sangat.

Oman: Yelah! Oman mimpi Nenni la..

Momma: Yeke?? (excited). Oman mimpi apa?

Oman: Oman mimpi, Nenni tengah mandi swimming pool. Pastu tiba-tiba je Nenni jadi Belon. Terbang jauh. Sebab tu Oman sedih.

Momma: Uish. Camtu sekali Oman mimpi? Tapi xpe. Mimpi bukan betul-betul pun. Mimpi tu tipu je. Oman tak percaya kan?

Oman: Tak. Tapi betul tau! Nenni jadi belon.


Sungguhla tak agak-agak mimpi Oman kan ? =D

The next few days, when i asked him about that dream, his story never change. The same sentences, the same intonations.

So i chose to believe him.

Psst.. The part that his Nenni turned out to be a baloon is so scary. If I were to have the same dream, i would cry too. :p

Recently, Oman came to me and told me this,


Oman: Momma, Oman mimpi bibik malam tadi. Mimpi sedih.

Momma: Iyer? waa. Oman mimpi cemana?

Oman: Yelah! Oman mimpi...Bibik tengah mandi swimming pool. Pastu tiba-tiba je Bibik jadi Belon. Terbang jauh. Sebab tulah Oman sedih.



No. 1, Should i believe him again or not? hihi.

No. 2, do you think Oman really get what MIMPI is?


I can't wait to hear he told me that he dreamt of me in the swimming pool and then I turn to be the flying balloon. I will not forget to ask him if i wear the two-piece or not. =P

Anyway, looking at our kids sleeping is the most amazing thing in this world.. or the second most amazing thing, maybe?


Momma: Kidd.. look at that.. Aaaaaaww! This is the reason why i always wanted to work at home. (Momma and Dadda tengah watching the same view as the photo)

Dadda: Oh yessss me too.. It looks so comfy, right?

Momma: Right! ........................................... eh wait.. did you just you say 'it'?

Dadda: Emmm.. we are talking about the bed right?

Momma: Ish!!!!! Omanla!!

Dadda: Owh.. tu confirm!!



I love you, Dadda.
I love you, Oman

Have a nice day, people.

The placed i stayed when i was in Colombo named Cinnamon Grand Hotel. It's really a huge hotel with huge chandeliers at it's atrium.


I think this hotel's doing a very good business in event management. There was wedding going on every day in the huge lobby atrium.

Sempat lagi hakak snap sepatah dua photo :)

My deluxe room was neat and spacious. What i most liked about it was the 4 little cute compartments in the bathroom for the body shower, shampoo, conditioner and lotion. My mom siap pesan suruh bawa balik 1 set for her :)

The room

I did also admire the mirror in the function room's area. It'd reflected my whole figure less 3 inch than actual. I know it's a big lie but how kind! :p

There's one evening where all delegates were invited to a Welcome Dinner by the Tuan Rumah. Located not far from the hotel, we were brought to another Cinnamon Hotel group in Colombo named, Cinnamon Lakeside.

Our private dinner was held on a floating restaurant. The 'boat' is called 8 degrees on the lake.

Let's see some photos k!!

Ready!! :)

8 degrees on the lake.

On the last day in Colombo, i tagged along my colleague to a shop who trades stones, gems and jeweleries. There are so many types of these beauty pieces ranging as low as 1 dollar per carat, to thousands per carat. Phew!!

Kalau i pakai yang besar tu mau pengsan Armi. :p

Last but not least, please also enjoy few photos that i took before the night i left Colombo to Malaysia.

Ramai orang chill kat sini.

Pokok kelapak di colombo :)

The end.
