Yuni is currently sleeping in the cradle. I had to take 1/2 day EL. Abg who planned to stay home to look after Yuni had to cancel the plan since he needed to go to hospital, attending to Opah.

As much as Abg wants to bring Yuni to see Opah, that is as much as how I wanted to bring Yuni too. But, Abg said they had prohibited children below 12 years old from entering any government hospital. Is that true? Well, from Abg's story yesterday during his visit to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital, the awareness of H1N1 is quite low. Not to condemn or anything, just that I was surprised. Why? Because most government hospital treat H1N1 cases, so, their staffs bears high risk of getting infected. Therefore, they should implement the mask wearing etc...

Just for a comparison, I am used to SDMC (formerly known as SJMC) and eversince H1N1 spread, they have been thightening controls, such as checking for high fever ptients or visitors going into the hospitals, masks were provided to ALL the staff and doctors and General Doctors implement hand sanitizers...etc...

When Yuni had a flu, I quickly went to SDMC. Since it was at 7pm, no more Paeds on duty...They had this General Doctor on duty. This one doctor (male) who attended to Uyuni was very "clean" concious! We were talking about Yuni's symptoms, but he was too concentrated on cleaning his hands *Aiyah!*

New doctor, I guess. He was a bit awkward when handling Yuni...hehehe
(Well, in the end, he just gave us a nose drop-which was actually an eye drop!)... I'm not complaining anymore because it helped Yuni...Alhamdulillah, sekarang dah baik


Health concious is currently important, regardless you're single, married or even have kids cause virus don't really select its target.

Nota kaki: Do they sell baby masks? To protect Yuni when she had to go out (12hb & 13hb ni...especially)..heheh *Bukak pose Seoul Garden tuh....lapar2...hhahaa*
