Doctoral + Motherhood? Yes I Can!

Image
The reason for my recent "disappearance" again on the blog sphere is because I was busy with my doctoral proposal defense that happened on the 4th of August and guess what? I PASSED! Yeayyyyyy.. I just need to submit my amendments within 1 month and i'm good to conduct my research. 
Being a working mother of 1, a wife AND a student all at the same time is tiring! only God knows how overwhelmed i am feeling sometimes. But to be honest, being a mother while doing my doctoral degree is a blessing in disguise. Without my baby, I don't think I will be motivated enough to defend my proposal in the first place. I am so motivated to finish what i've started 4 years ago -- I was single and bored that's why I signed up for this haha. 
Last year, I remember my supervisor coming from Shah Alam to KK for a meet up. I was already 2 months pregnant that time. Then she told me about one of her student who just got married and she advised her not to have a baby yet or else s…

Carbs for my love

I'm almost 8 months post-partum. To be honest I sill haven't gotten back into my pre-pregnancy weight. I tried dieting but since i'm breastfeeding it's so hard. I get hungry easily LOL. Dieting for me means not taking much carbs like rice but the thing is, rice especially  brown rice is my milk booster. The other day, I only had fruit juice for breakfast and fried spaghetti for lunch. I pumped for 40 minutes and got only 1oz.

Diet plays a significant role in producing milk so I can't afford to diet now. So this morning I had oat + banana smoothie for breakfast and brown rice for lunch. This afternoon, I pumped nearly 5oz.. I'm one happy mommy!

I learned that different people will have different type of milk booster food. When my baby was still a newborn, I was told to drink young papaya soup. I tried but the result wasn't as good as oats and rice for me. Oh, and drink lots of fluid :)
The truth is, you don't need to spend alot of money on those milk boo…

Finally I've figured out Blogger LOL. I actually had given up on it and moved to Wordpress but I find the interface to be not as user friendly as Blogger. So this morning after my morning class I worked on it and here I am :) My new blog on Wordpress was called "Pammie knows it all". I think i'll retain this blog's name because this blog has historyyyyyy.. let it stay as it is lah kan. So yeah, I just want to say...
I MISS THIS SPACE SO MUCH AND I'M GLAD I'M BACK!
Thank God I didn't delete this blog last time :) So stay tuned OK because i'll be posting more updates on this blog starting TODAY
