Then this yr...i was bored and stressed at the same time..like that also can and started smoking again and somehow ummi knew i was smoking but did not scold me..hmmm maybe she dun care if i kick the bucket since i've done my duty as a specimen donor...
So recently i bought another set of ecig by smokerhaven and started vaping again....
And today..my boss was raving about this revolutionary product called thermomix....this baby can do mountainous job of a kitchen appliance with a touch of a button...well multiple buttons i would say.
So i google the darn thing and ...seriously i'm blown away...it can do chopping..grinding..kneading etc..and cook the meal itself....in the same appliance!!!
My boss swears it can even make sorbet...so 3 course dinner is possible with this thing...
Ok i need to put a disclaimer..i'm not an agent nor i can profit from advertising this stuff...though my boss did hinted to me...if i want..tell her...she can get better discount. I guess her friends is an agent and this thing is NOT cheap...RM5K plus...sheeshhh...ohh yeah she also said...dun worry..can pay installment RM499 every month....this is the new type of tupperware selling but seriously i'm tempted coz the inner cook in me keep whispering...buy it..buy it....Maybe i can join Masterchef with this stuff and kick some butt....

So buying alkaline batteries is not the best solution...mind you..i need triple the quantity. I always told ummi to buy those simpler toys..no electronic component..they have less tendency to get broken.
Ok enuff talking abt broken toys..i'm suppose to write abt my trusty eneloop batt. These guys are one of the best investment i ever made...maybe after our house and asb...ranked 3rd. The 1st set i bought back in 2008 in sydney...to power my pentax dslr. I was reading some review abt the camera and somebody recommended this rechargeable batt. Then i did further digging...lo and behold i'm hooked. The same set still chugging along powering their rocker and toys to this day. I did buy additional 4 new set AA and another 4 set of AAA early this yr..same model..These babies can last quite sometime...
Some toys need the bigger batteries..D or C type..no worries..i bought D adaptor in ebay which can house 2 piece of AA batteries and we're good to go..
So all in all...i reduced buying those alkaline batt with the eneloops..slightly reducing hazardous chemical from going into the dumpster and further pollute the ground...thats what the marketing campaign from them anyway...i'm a sucker for marketing fad
These 3 babies...does not run on eneloop battery..but on formula milk and homemade food. Need to recharge every 2-3 hours

Besides gerai buah-buahan, ada jugak mcm2 makanan. and this is my fav...sate tulang jelebu. dah lama dah teringin nak rasa sate tulang ni kat senawang tak sangka dia dtg bukak gerai kat Putrajaya. sate tulang ni bila tanya budak yg jaga tu dia kata sate yg dibuat daripada tulang ayam dan diperap dgn resipi rahsia. siap sebut tu resipi rahsia....tp mmg sedap la sate ni. tak byk isi buat sedap nak gigit2. masa lunch time beli secucuk nak try. 1 cucuk for RM1.30.
so now back to LRD....since now masing2 dah laju merangkak except for Leia yang masih seronok menjulur2, so kena la sentiasa watch out. dah la sorang kat sana...sorang kat sini. so Mr Daddy you better start looking for that pagar. tambah pulak dgn hobi terbaru LRD skrang suka memanjat...nak selamatkan si Leia....si Dhia pulak tersembam. nak selamat kan si Dhia....si Raid plak tergolek. anyway, here is the latest video of them....Leia and Raid watching TV and Dhia dok main rocker Leia.
I love you LRD

This is a journal entry...quick snippet on the happening on 8th Dec 2012...Its 7pm..and ummi have left us all alone to go to Alor Star...so just you 3 and me...plus bibik..but she will have a minor role...coz her shift ends by 9pm...
Me..i'm freaking out right now...can i handle all 3 by myself till tmrw morning...coz we never done this before
I was thinking to bring them home to my hometown for the night...but after the ruined 1st day raya fiasco....they still threw tantrum to their grandpa and grandma... i didn't dare take that chance.. so this is quite a feat...and would qualify me to be nominated as father of the year.....so here we go!!
7.07pm : R went up to bed first..we was planning to go to bed only around 8..just to make sure they're really2 tired and sleepy..but seems like he already cranky...
7.20pm : R is sound asleep...ok so far so good...
7.51pm : L turn....D sorry you gotta wait...L keeps playing with my hand n finger but refuses to sleep. Its her thing now...grabbing my finger b4 going to sleep...
8.14pm : suddenly bibik knocking on the door, D wanna sleep she said...greatt...L still not asleep. This is when i wished i have super powers...not superman...coz his super strength wont help in this situation..i wished i'm plasticman..so i can reach both baby cot on the left and right side of our bed...i kept rolling left and right to give milk to D and also give my fingers to L so she can sleep.
8.38pm : Finally the girls fall asleep...
9.00ishpm : the daddy also fallen asleep..sheesh...i was planning to catch upon some movies and games from PSN....well that will not happen today

This was in Serai Cyberjaya last weekend..cozy place..not so many people around coz it was on saturday..parking near the elevator..big elevator to the 3rd floor. We keep forgetting to bring their teething biscuits..so we look like awful parents stuffing our face with huge amount of food whilst the kids watched us..too bad

I was bored...got nothing to do...flicking thru the pics gallery then saw a couple of pics...and the thought of prison break came to mind...loved the 1st season...after that it just went downhill...anyway i'm supposed to post this last week but an unfortunate event happens...i dropped my phone on the concrete floor and messed up the screen really bad..then my backup phone suddenly bricked...so went back to the cracked screen phone for daily use..sigh

Since i have not drafted the entry for how they came about series..and probably never will...this is sort of some snippets of those final months before LDR's arrival
i read ALOT of books just to kill time. I would go nuts watching drama swasta at 9pm..and that Boboiboy cartoon at 6pm every freakin day.....i'm still traumatised till this day watching their video clips..it just bring me back to that small single bed room in HUKM. Living in a small compound with a demanding and cranky soon to burst wife is not honeymoon. Whatever i do or say is not acceptable and way below her expectactions. FYI, i have no idea what her expectations were..its keep on changing every hour. But i took it like a man...i persevered..i endured..i survived............
I did get some rest or some peace and quiet whenever relatives come and visit us..that's when ummi put up her brave face..smiles..laugh...yes she's in denial mode...It's like when UN come to visit those in turmoil countries..and the president would tell the UN rep..everything fine in here...nothing to worry...the citizen are being taken care of..no civil rights are violated yada yada.....and turn green when they've gone back to their cozy lifes..hulk smash!!
Note to LDR : This is the sacrifice your father have to shoulder during those tiring times. Taking the shit from your ummi for you guys..
There was days when we try not to see each other face..coz plastic cups will fly....and it does hurts. To those criminal soon to be.. before trying to get a tenancy in Sg Buloh prison..try staying 30 painful days in a hospital with your pregnant wife...it is a nighmare!! Food is bad..the roommate is always in a fit...have i mentioned this..yes..food is bad...the room is cramped...there is no where for you to go and hide...
Ok..maybe bad food is a bit of a stretch compared to prison food..we did stayed in the private wing..so we can select asian or western menu..but this list of menus is limited..after 1 week..you can already know it is back to same menu. So yes...it sucks big time..
Furthermore, i usually buy the food from the canteen...slightly better selection...there is nasi lemak...nasi campur...etc..but after eating there day in day out...you just wanna throw up. But i need to point out...the yellow color nasi lemak with banana leaf is a joy to eat...that is the only one thing i can enjoy till today whenever we go there for an appointment. Kudos to the makcik...i've gained a kilo or two for that food alone...hello cholestrol!!
But on a hindsight...there was some silver lining...for one...i really love going to office. I'll immediately just bolted out of the door in the morning..even though it's monday morning....freedom!!
I would come back late from office though i've got nothing to do...why would i. So i become extra hardworking in those final months...
So this was my life before...and those who defending her with remarks about she was bearing 3 child in her tummy for 8 months....well this is my counter...the 3 kids..do not throw tantrum!! I was bearing an over dosed adult woman with too much hormone in her body and no where to release it and i was the nearest punching bag around...so spare me the argument....plus this is my entry anyway...hah..take that
My RM30 per day bed..during the first couple of days i was sleeping on the floor with just the toto..but i guess my back does not agree with me...it is like sleeping on the hard flat floor..so i opted to this foldable sofa cum single bed...slighly better but still not certified by orthopaedic society.

Not sure when this epidemic started..but it is spreading quite rapidly...first it was D. Nowadays she does not insist to be picked up every waking hours or whenever she sees adult in the vicinity. Nope..she's over that..getting picked up is lame...its for babies...she's a grown baby now...thats different category.
Since she's able to sit down now..so no more watching the ceiling or the fan for that matter. She can play with her toys the way toys are meant to be played around..or watching tv..babytv most of the time..sometimes sinetron with bibik..and sometimes those philippines soap opera too...sigh
Anyway..she will demand to be accompanied by adult everytime...we don't have to do anything....she'll be doing her business...watching tv..playing with L and R..but we shud be around to shadow her...
I can't even go to pee for that matter..we must be visible and also within 3 meters radius from her. Exceed that limit and all hell break loose. She'll just scream her lung out like she got beaten or something...and plus now she added tears into the mix...goshhhh
This has been going on for couple of weeks...but L has catch on with this tactic a week back. Both of them is ganging up together and ensure tok umi and bibik does nothing but watch babytv with them...
Tok umi totally blame this on ummi which i do agree. D does not sleep in the baby cot nowadays..she sleeps with us most of the time coz she does not hold her own bottle during the night. LR already proficient on this skill but D is the clever one. She can hold the bottle during play time...but spread her arm in T shape whenever milk time. She just refuse to hold the bottle..so since each of them wakes up twice every night/morning...that's a minimum of 6 time ummi have to feed them. Since LR can feed on their own..we can just straight away continue our sleep after giving them the milk..but D knows this...she wants the parent to work hard.....not her. So we ended up giving her milk on our bed instead..and since then on she'll just wake up screaming when nobody around her if we put her back in the cot..sighh..thats where the separation anxiety begins....
Pic below depicts those times we have to join watching babytv...pls reserve ur criticism on our parenting skill...yes watching tv is not good...but Tok umi and bibik have other things to do in the house.

So, now ummi already got rid of the big giant lipstick mark with something more generic...i'm a happy camper. But still we haven't find the time to sit down and re-do the layout again. Maybe this weekend if we're lucky...

Whenever going to open house or gathering.. Arrive earlier than the expected time...for us its quite natural thing. We prone to arrive earlier than other guest. For one...u get the best parking spot...currently with the big ass mpv is a pain to park..i would scout the area for the most convenient to park for the shortest distance to the door...coz usually i'll be in charge of the cargo unloading...and my back is not in the best of shape
Lesson no 8
Open house is a good place to get free babysitter...especially for D. She couldnt care less who pick her up..as long as she not watching the ceiling...she's happy. So whenever frens or relative approach me while holding D, i will do the std script with D.."Nak uncle/aunty xxx dukung Dhia tak?"...and i would just shove D in their arms...i don't wait for their answers.... 99% of the time those gullible folks will always fall for it...hehehehehe
Lesson no 9
Referring to lesson no. 8...do not work with L and R..it will not happen....period
Lesson no. 10
Avoid traffic jam...somehow...LDR hates traffic congestion...this hypothesis has been tested twice..so far, it is still valid..couple of times in Plus Hiway heading Alor Setar during Raya...it was raining and alot of fender bender....another one was when i need to pump air on the tires at Petronas in KL..its not traffic jam, but we're not in motion....they would toned down a notch after i press the gas pedal....i dunno why So i would plan ahead of time..using waze..select the best route..with the least traffic... This also applies to riding the stroller..no stopping watsoever...good exercise for me
Lesson no. 11
LDR are like wild stallions..they cherish the freedom..open space..it is always a challenge to put them to bed...they just roll over the cot and mumbles all night...so need to wear them down..till they tired and then you hit them with a bottle of milk...works like a charm

When was the last time i watch an indonesion movie? Very long long time ago...during the days of Barry Prima...i bet majority of the readers here never heard that name before...he is a like the chuck norris of indonesia...ok...maybe readers here still have no idea who's this dude either...maybe i should mention Jason Statham just to set the right tone...
So why i end up watching this movie? I was going to office today and saw a short clip of the movie in the bus...yes i ride bus...i'm a tree hugger...gonna write an entry about my bus riding thing..but that has nothing to do with LDR...so defeat the purpose of using the same opening title 'the triplets and how. ......."
Anywayss...the title of the movie what intrigue me...The Raid Redemption...hehehehe....get it? No???...oh welll....so i quickly pull up my trusty IMDB app in my phone and check out the rating. I have a rule in movie watching..always watch IMDB rating above 7.0 points...lower than that score usually sucks big time...dun waste ur bandwidth downloading it. I usually just search 8.0 and above movies just to cover my basic movie needs..i think i have covered those range except for oldies movies like Casablanca or Gone with the winds...i cannot stand those kind of movies...
So after reading the synopsis and user review...i was impressed...its an indonesian movie with unknown cast and director...i dun read those professional movie reviewer..i feel they just being paid to like or hate movies...being pretentious about the plot, character development and other BS ..i would love to have their job though...
After coming back from office...i straight away search the movie...and found a copy..dun ask me how i got it...that will constitute as admission of guilt. Pls be advise, get a version with subtitles. I didn't have it...so i have to do alot of guesswork on the plot..my indonesian vocab is quite limited...compared to tok umi and LDR recently. They've been watching alot of afternoon sinetron together with bibik...so the movie dun have much plot...just small talk...but alot of action..really2 awesome fight scene. This is like OngBak with Tony Jaa...indon version. I won't write a movie review coz IMDB have a bunch of them and it is nicely written...
I wish Malaysia can do something like this...a good action movie portraying silat...like what this movie did..we had enough of romance direct to astro movies by david teo...or horror movies with different variant of local malay ghosts and the occasional action rempit cum drift movie by the haslam clan..
So there you have it..a movie worth watching...i have to wait till R is 15yrs old to watch his movie...its brutally majestic...
Wednesday, September 26, 2012
On that note...i'm taking a break on writing the...how they came about series.. It just hit me..that story is pretty long....i dunno why i did it in the first place..regret..regret..regret... i need to break it up to several entries just keep my mind sane...Ok i digress alot already..
Coming back to raya....yeaaa..1st day raya in my hometown goes like this.
We target to do at least 3 house on that day...arrived in sepang around 12noon . Went straight to my aunt place...we parked them in one corner of the living room..So the makcik2 start ogling them..and then...Leia starts screaming...and scream..and screamm...and couple of seconds later Raid join the frenzy...I was still eating kuih raya by the way since 2 kids crying can be easily handled by ummi and bibik..
But the cries never stop...Dhia do join in later when I have finished eating..and thats when our bibik starts eating very slowly..I mean seriously...i dunno why she enjoys eating very slowly...it need a separate entry on its own with regards to eating with triplets. Leia have yet to stop the tantrum...ummi even sat in the car with aircond on hoping it will soothe her. Well....it ain't happening!!
So ummi vetoed me to go back straight to my parents house...raya cancelled!!..pls note, Leia have yet to stop crying and screaming..it was a good 20 mins plus minus till we reach my parents place. By then...there were alot of ppl..my cousins..my brother and sister...and some relatives i have no idea who they are.....and then other 2 i.e Dhia and Raid re-join the tantrum..
I think by this time..ummi's make-up already melted....my brother asked her to go into the room and switch on the aircond...I was still holding R or D i cannot remember...imagine the TV series..ER..when George Clooney not yet famous...that's how frantic it was..all 3 still crying for no reason.We pulled out toys...rattlers...squishy pillows...gave them milk..sing a song..selawat by my mother...still no indication L gonna stop. RD already stopped after 30min reaching home...but Leia..she's a tough cookie. I read somewhere in parenting magazine( yes, i do read them)..those with tantrums are very determined babies..they know what they want..and cries if they're not getting wat they want. So the issue here is..we have no idea what L wants.
We did all in the checklist
1. Milk - not taking anymore
2. Toys - not interested
3. Air cond - full blast
4. Diapers - still dry
5. Cuddling - not good enough
6. Ummi and daddy funny faces - yeah right
So after a good 1 hour of screaming and kicking...L finally quit her tantrum and went to a deep sleep. A good 3-4 hr sleep during the day is very rare...i can say never..so by this time it is already 4pm..and i was in no mood to go beraya anymore. The kids tend to consume your energy..its like their the bunnies..cute and cuddly..and we're the energizer batteries...
Around 5pm, Princess Leia woke up with a smile but still growls to my parents..so we do not want to risk another round of tantrum...we decided to pack our bags and went straight home. The end...
Yeah only satu rumah beraya...technically my parents house does not count..they went there just to sleep..
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Last friday was a memorable evening....i was busy with a proposal submission...ummi has a launching event to look into. So both of us will be coming back quite late...on top of that ummi sent me on a wild goose chase for 16 bottle of oxygenizer water drink for FLOM which she will be attending the saturday launch event....like evian is not good enough for her.
Anyway, i arrived around 7.40pm....LDR no where to be seen in the living room..so i thought...this evening gonna be a peaceful evening...again...my hope was dashed away when i walked into the bedroom. LDR was wide awake....all in their own baby cot mumbling nonsense..but very much awake. Bibik was giving milk to D but L and D was talking loudly...and bibik already ran out of milk...and none of them sleeping.
That's when bibik suddenly made a quick getaway..Tuan, saya mahu sembahyang dulu ya?...of course i cannot say no.....so she walked out from the room and never to be seen again...what the heck!!!
Refer to previous entry on my lesson learnt..never ever be alone with all 3 awake...it was freakin chaos....i was jumping from one side of the bed to the other..then running back to the milk station. I think i can apply for a barista or bartender position after this with my ever improving skillset concocting milk cocktailEventually it worked out alright...but deep down inside i have a feeling bibik was trying to sabotage my baby whisperer title.... I was trying to take a pic of my victory..but it was too dark...

Lesson learnt 1
- this is pretty obvious but sometimes we just forgot...coz whenever we go out...we're always rushing like mad to get into the car...so always have a backup of everything..i.e clothes..diapers..bottles..pacifier...blanket.....baby wipes..formula milk..always expect that shit will happen anytime...even just going out to your next door neighbour...so be always prepared for any contigencies..we even have a backup of the backup ready in the car..just in case..
Lesson learnt 2
- do not at any circumstances to take all 3 wide awake kids to go to bed together. One must plan ahead who shud go to bed first..and make sure he/she asleep before taking another one to the bed. Dun try to be a superparents with super powers and try this impossible feat..it always end badly i.e accepting defeat and taking them back down to the livingroom and to be looked after by the bibik..it is embarrassing..sometimes i feel bibik is ridiculing my parenting skills. All this will avoid the domino effect when one of them waking up the other who already asleep..it is madness to stop the vicious cycle set by this chain reaction...
Lesson learnt 3 - when they cries...2 basic checklist...they pooped or hungry. Sometimes we just over analyse things and not seeing the obvious..they're hungry or uncomfortable...just go back to basics...
Lesson learnt 4 - Always remember when they're fed. In the beginning we have a log book with time and volume of milk taken. This is to keep track which one is still full and which one is hungry. The worst thing to happen is overfeeding ur child..
Lesson learnt 5 - when D is pretty much occupied by watching tv or staring at the ceiling figuring out how to conquer the world...dun ever let yourself be in her line of sight..she'll just cry for attention and ask to be picked up. Once i had to jump over the sofa from the back and lie still for a couple of second to play dead...just to avoid her radar....that bad
Lesson learnt 6 - Don't lie down on ur back and hold them horizontally...especially after feeding. They might just puke on ur face...true story
and many lessons to be written...till then
Monday, September 17, 2012
hi...umi is back. dearest daddy dah installed the blogger apps on my phone so hoping for more updates from my side of stories. hopefully reader tak confuse with who is who. have to admit that daddy is a better writer...till then...
Sunday, September 16, 2012
Coming back to the scratch marks...their nails are quite sharp. Once, L or R had a long scar from the forehead down across the eyelid down to the cheek. IT WAS AWESOMELY BRUTAL. Just like Kratos from God Of War series. How ever we trim them..it will be as sharp as usual. See, they inherited the only part of me ummi always praised off. My long and beautiful nails. Its those glass type...not the lame cup type shape like ummi..and maybe the rest of the world..hehehehe
When we got the news of having triplets..ummi prayed for healthy babies..strong..beautiful...like ummi...all about her lah...and pretty nails like daddy. So i'm considered the minority shareholder if LDR is a public co.
Even when ppl asked who LDR resembles...ummi will claim its all from her side of the family..the arabic side. She still denies there is any part of jawa descend in them..except for the nail that is... So yeah sucks to be me....
these are just the minor cut...
Thursday, September 13, 2012
Both never been to parenting class...and never been a parent before..duhhh...so we have to learn while hitting the ground running...alot of mistakes...alot of lesson learnt..we even take notes of those..just in case we forgot and make the same mistakes again...i shud do the lesson learnt entry in the future...
So LDR..if you're reading this...from the bottom of my heart..i'm sorry if we messed up ur life...we're noobs....it was trial and error...too many advises with conflicting view points. I do hope u wont murder us in our sleep for traumatising your childhood...(p/s: L...we're sorry you've fallen from our bed the other day...u actually did quite well by landing on the pillow..we're cool abt this right?....no hard feelings...)
Coming back to baby whispering thing...last friday ummi got stuck in a meeting until 8pm i.e way past time their bedtime. We usually put them to bed around 6.30 to 7pm. So i planned strategically to put R to bed first coz he's the easiest if we bribed him with a bottle of milk. So in 5 min...R went down counting fluffy sheeps. So then i decided to take up L since D just woke up an hour ago and pretty much wide awake..L is quite a difficult sleeper...so it took me till 7.30pm to get L sleeps quietly. She usually talk to herself while flipping left and right..she does get loud and will always woke up R. This is where my multitasking training in corporate world comes in handy...i'd go back and forth betw R and L giving milk...stop halfway..go to the other one..like main galah panjang...
So about Maghrib..i went down and took up D who have been sitting quietly in the rocker..Tok umi said she's already sleepy..so this will be easy..piece of cake...Not!!
D is the unexpected one..it's really difficult to gauge her mood..maybe becoz she's the youngest...she'll start talking on her own and pulling the pillow over her head..smothering herself...sometimes with 2 pillow. That's the odd habit she just took up recently. We cannot leave her alone with a pillow. So after 45 mins of pillow tug of war with me..she finally falls asleep..
So there...i successfully put all 3 in bed alone..with no help from ummi. Coz usually this is a 2 man operation....I got skillz!!! Maybe I should advertise my skillset for hire. You never know....

So here we go...in apr/may...we went back in to MAC after ummi pms cycle started...but unfortunately or fortunately Doc Natasha went into labor. She's having twins! I think that was a hint from God. So our case was passed to Prof Hashim.
Since we already decided to go with IVF..Prof cannot say anything much..as we were told he prefers the natural way of conception..but he's one of the best. The other one is Prof Zainul..
So Prof gave us a bunch of prescription to stimulate the hormone development...it was costly...i think 3/4 of the whole expenses came from the meds..it ranges depending on the condition of the patients...some need more dosage..some need less..even after she was pregnant..the prescription bill kept on accumulating...to ensure the fetus development goes as planned..
You can say ummi was pumped with full of prescribed pills...like eating M&M for breakfast. Also she has to get jabbed on the tummy every morning...that meds was freaking expensive. She's like a junkie with needle marks on the stomach instead on the arm. Since she is afraid of stabbing herself with a big ass syringe...i got the honour to play doctor for the next couple of weeks...everyday..whoopieee..my parents would be happy..his son finally became a doctor..though for a while...ooh yes..those were the days i can stab my wife and not getting prosecuted..good times indeed
To be cont...

Friday, September 7, 2012
It started way back in early 2011..where we put our target date to get a child..sorta long postponed new year resolution. We tried IUI twice...first back in 2007 and also 2010. It did not panned out well and the folks in LPPKN suggested to try another IUI again. But we just cannot take the agony of going to beraya in 2011 with no child in progress.
Those childless couple would understand how depressing it is to meet your relatives and slapped with the bonus questions :
1. Anak dah berapa ( How many kids?)
2. Dah mengandung blom ( Are you pregnant yet?)
3. ( fill in the blanks) dah mengandung..ko bila lagi ( Your ........... already pregnant, when in yours?)
4. Jgn tunggu lama2 ( Don't wait too long)
5. and other variants...some meant to my ever bulging tummy..sigh
Anyway..we commit to ourselves..no more of those silly annoying questions...i mean we can take it for the first couple of years...we usually just shrugged it off as a joke...but after 7 years..it's getting old..and you really just wanna slap them..literally...multiple times if need be!
So in Feb 2011, ummi called HUKM - MAC Dept for an appointment. She decided HUKM is the least expensive facility to do the IVF. We managed to secure a date couple of weeks later with Doc Natasha. We're lucky to have those medical reports during our IUI phase and presented it during our appointment.I have to give credit to ummi for being dilligent enough to file and catalogue majority of the reports...history..even receipts..i mean she's anal about filing stuff into those clear type folder..where ppl used for during job interviews. Even our current paed was impressed with her filing skills...kipas sket
I noticed certain couple went straight to MAC with no prior report of their health...so they were turned away to another clinic.dunno where..
So during the conversation with Doc Natasha, we insist to go ahead with IVF..we're not looking for another round of IUI. She agreed and discussed the period cycle to align her schedule for the next step.
To be cont...

The most common question i got from my frens regarding having triplets was...did u asked for triplets from the doctor?
so the answer is No!
It's not McD where u can order 2 large BigMac set and 1 medium Quarter Pounder. It's not that straight forward. We were lucky enough to even go thru the procedure once...compared to some couple who have to endure this tiring process twice or more..and yes..it takes perseverance..patience and of course money to go thru this..
So I'll try to document as much details as possible the journey we took up until they're born...maybe when LDR grow up..they can read this and appreciate what the sacrifice their parent have to go thru to make it all possible...well i didn't do much...mostly ummi do most the heavy lifting(pun intended)..hehehehe
To be continued...(blogging on mobile phone is tedious)
...ummi finally decided to walk away from this blog due to family and work commitment. Yeah..she has started working since June coz i asked her to. Duk umah shopping online not helping our family ever increasing expenses...
She will comment and participate to defend her stand. So from now on this blog is about a father's point of view handling the triplets...
Btw this is the daddy....
