my dream shoe

the isabooties range. Happened to be Isabooties is an eco-friendly product.yey! Go Green!

soo my favourite :) (i know sure my frens would say...ok so color isem :) just cant help it guys)

Well clearly not for me..but for daania... hahaha, been eyeing for these isabooties shoes for several months tapi tak beli2 pun, just adoring it at the website n fb.. harga.. ouch! for a kid's shoe i think. huhu . And alang2 surfing on its website, i found a good article on Tips for choosing the right shoe for your infant / toddler. Here i copy n paste in (meaning i typed it back...huah rajin plak ek despite my lil' daania pun mnyebuk kat sebelah ni)

Tips for treating your baby’s tootsies right

Baby shoes keep getting cuter, but you may want to hold off on putting them on your infant. “If it’s a special occasion, shoes are fine-but otherwise, it’s best to keep your baby barefoot until he’s walking outside on unsafe surfaces or his feet need to be covered due to the weather,” says Tanya Remer Altmann, M.D., a pediatrician in Westlake Village, Calif., and author of 2006’s The Wonder Years and 2008’s Mommy Calls. Meanwhile follows these expert suggestion:

Buy shoes with flexible soles unless your child is a late walker (17months or later). Look for brands that are firm enough to protect your baby’s tootsies yet allow him to bend his feet easily

Choose stiff soles if your child isn’t walking by about 17 moths. “Children who are late walkers tend to have very flat, flexible feet,” says Ronald Valmassy,DPM. A podiatrist at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco. “They need a stable base of support to push off from”

Skip sock on slick floors. An unsteady walker can slip on wood or tile. If you want to keep those little toes warm, opt for soft, flexible shoes with nonslip on suede soles

Use sandals sparingly. Sandals are not for toddlers who are running, climbing and getting into everywhere.” Altmann says

Size up often. Re-evaluate your child shoes size every 3 months. That’s how quickly his feet grow


Frankly, i dont have the time yet to look at the shoes in store. The only store that i know tht sells it is Tiny Tapir, besides that are online store which sells cheaper than the market price. Only that b4 i buy it online, i think i have to take alook first ..huhu

But last few weeks i did found similar concept shoe at Tree House in One Utama, the designs are cool too and much cheaper but still isabooties have a lot more design range. So kesimpulannya... tgk lah camner.. haha :)

lil' daania's fav

Daania's latest stock.. Everything in this cupboard i bought at Cold Storage, IKANO :D
Skrg ni for her lunch and dinner, i love to make pasta (organic vege pasta; the top left in the pics) and mixed together with Heinz organic pasta cheese bake alternate with rice porridge ... walla!

Daania with her Rafferty's apple and cinnamon purie (her 9mths photo, rambut ciput jek..huhu)

Daania's fav snack at this moment, the white packaging snack i just discovered at Cold Storage Plaza Pelangi, JB (jauh tak...hehe), kat KL belum nampak lagi

Dalam banyak2 organic baby food in the market, my luv at first sight was this brand ; Rafferty's Garden. Suke giler because of its handy packaging. I started bought its cereal , fruit & vege puries and yogurt since daania 6mths dulu. Cuma now dah jarang beli sikit sbb started cooking heavier meal for her, so most of it i bought raw veges and organic pastas. And another brand is Organix, most of daania's snacks are from this brand.. only that it's a little expensive. So sometimes i do buy non organic snacks such as Baby bites or Heinz to alternate with the organic snacks :D

Since that i'm staying in Sri Damansara, most of the stocks i bought at Ikano; either Cold Storage or JUST LIFE, and saldomly around TTDI. And if im in JB, either Cold Storage, Plaza Pelangi or a Organic store in Taman Tasek ( tak ingat plak nama dia, i'll check later). But still most supermarket eg Jusco, cold storage, Sogo do sell organic products

As mentioned, most of the time i bought organic veges, potatoes, sweetpotatoes, pastas, fruits at JUST LIFE because i think its cheaper probably because its an organic & eco store & has more variety (jd member dapat discount :D) .. even organic tempeh, organic candy, organic chocolate pun ada..huhu.. and besides that really2 luv entering this store cus it has a rustic & rugget look :)
p/s: im not receiving any commision by promoting this.. hahaha :)

what's eating daania

Due to personal decision & supported by my husband n family, we chose to give Daania organic food as much as we can. Probably because looking at myself yang allergic with certain food, im just trying to avoid my daughter to have the same problem as me. Some of my girlfrens did ask is it truly beneficial? nnti anak ko x cerewet makan ke? tak mahal ke?

here is an article just to share with u guys on the benefit. for detail you may click here
" Is organic baby food really best for your baby? Pediatrician Elizabeth Knapp, MD, with Austin Regional Clinic Far West, believes it can be beneficial, especially before the age of two when baby brains are developing at a rapid rate and the organs are most likely to be sensitive to exposure to harmful substances.

"Good nutrition is important at any time because its helps build a body that will sustain a child for the rest of his or her life," says pediatrician Elizabeth Knapp, MD, with Austin Regional Clinic.

If financially feasible, Dr. Knapp recommends choosing organic baby foods or making your own from organic products to avoid contamination with pesticides or other toxins. "Even small amounts of pesticide exposure are dangerous for babies because of their smaller body mass. Their brains are developing rapidly and are especially sensitive to neurotoxins at this age."

Non-organic foods, including baby foods, also contain higher levels of hormones and antibiotics "

Part yg cerewet makan pun, i tgk my daughter tak cerewet pula untill now. Sumbat lah apa2 dia hepi jek menganga nak :D Its just as a working mother, you have to sacrifice your time to cook her meal every day early in d morning before sending her to the nursery. I do admit that sometimes mmg tak sempat nak masak, so got to rely on the nursery's food and redha jek lah... huhu.

Mahal? its subjective... for me at the end of the day how our baby's health we want it to be. I think not that much, just bought a little portion just for them, untuk mak bapaknya makan macam biasa jek lah :)

Next entry i'll may list out what organic food i usually buy for daania, her snacks and where to buy them

book description
Now, you can help your baby get started right. It's never too early to start a healthy blood type diet lifestyle. Help your baby get the best possible start in life with Dr. D'Adamo's Eat Right 4 Your Baby. Dr. D'Adamo follows his best selling health library with a program designed to provide optimal conditions for fertility as well as for pregnancy and childbirth. Divided into sections for the 4 blood types, Dr. D'Adamo provides nutritional strategies--including recipes--offering detailed advice on what foods to consume, avoid, and how frequently to eat. He also suggests exercises for before and after birth that are based on type. This is a complete, easy-to-use guide that every health conscious parent to-be should have. (

I've posted this before in my FB long time ago. Daania were 4mnths old when i bought it, at that time tgh cari baby foods recepies for 6mnths. It was so good and i did promote it to all my frens with baby and most of them bought it too :D.

When Daania started her solid, i tried to feed her organic food as much as possible. Its just my own personal decision. Even in this book it mentioned that "Choose organic food only". Susah nak achive 100% though lagi lagi la bila dah masuk nursery..huhu. It lists beneficial and avoid food based on your baby blood type to boost up baby immune system and what our baby is prone to. As for daania she's a AB baby, so she's more prone to colds (which is totally true), but by giving her the right food and suppliment (and seboleh2nye try to avoid ubat spital;still my personal choice), her recovery is more natural eventhough it took some time

Last important info.. I bought it at POPULAR bookstore with only RM19.90. Reasonable price huh!?

the time has arrived

after years of thinking.. and thinking...and thinking..i've created a blog! yey! alast! as mentioned above creating this is genuinely inspired by my dad n daania, how they affect our lifestyle & health specifically... especially through out my pregnancy and having our lil' princess.

Im just hoping that our experience or others will benefit everyone here
and other than that, just having fun with this blog

Lets have a great & blessed life... Amin :D
