..to ensure that he wont't be a vegan..

Still remember in my previous entry that we try to switch Irfan’s formula milk? Well, he didn’t like it at all.  We gave him a few times but he refused to drink it, well, he tried drinking it for 1~2 sucks and then he put the bottle away. I know it is hard to suddenly switching his milk, at his age, where he already knew what he wants and what’s not, he can differentiate the tastes and choose what taste he prefers. He understands everything (almost) and that make us more difficult to convince him.  I know there this table when you want to switch formula milk but he refused to take it AT ALL TIME.  So, we decided to give him a try the taste of fresh milk, eat chocolates, cakes, buns etc etc.. After few times giving him try, he can eat most chocolates (means that he likes the tastes), cakes, buns and biscuits.  However he still refused to take some amount of fresh milk.  I believe he doesn’t like the taste ‘cos there is a far different between cow’s milk and soy’s milk taste.  I don’t want him to grown up and be a vegan. NO and NEVER pls! and after few tries, we discover that he is NOT allergy to cow’s milk or having the lactose intolerance BUT he is actually allergic to nuts! We gave him one time a brand of biscuit that contains cow’s milk, butter and nuts and he starts coughing immediately after he finished eating (coughing is one of the symptom if he is allergy to certain foods). But luckily it didn’t prolong ‘cos we gave him Ventolin. It settled faster than before. Then, one time we gave him KitKat and he didn’t coughing AT ALL.  So, we make a comparison between the ingredients in the biscuits and the KitKat.  The biscuits contain peanut traces and no peanut traces in KitKat.  I believe most of biscuits in the market contain peanut traces so Irfan will take a longer time to suit that.

Am a bit relieved about it.  We can now give him the chocolates (with no traces of nuts) and chocolate cakes.  I hope that even so he is allergic to nuts, this will not leading him to G6PD.  I hope that it will settle later when he grown up.  Hopefully.. InshaALLAH… I will put an effort to take care of him as to ensure that he will not grow up as a vegan.

..when dealing at the counter..

Am not good in dealing with people at counter.  Or shall I say it am just fair enough when dealing with people at counter.  I prefer to do all the process i.e.: renewal license, renewal road tax, pay the bills etc etc online.  Just a few clicks will give it a go.  My driving license is due today and I just realized it on Wednesday. I know that there is Myeg where you can renew your road tax and license online.  But, the process is quite time consuming whereby you need to submit a form through fax and the process will take about 2 days.  Apart from that, you cannot pay with your online banking directly because they have their so-called 'myeg debit' when you want to pay fees. And then, your license, which has been renew will be posted to you which will be taking 2 more days.  So, comparing when you go the post office where you can directly pay the fee at the counter and get your license on the spot which I guess it will only take 10~15minutes! (Except if there are more people queuing, you have to spend more time at the post office, obviously!).

As for my case, I went to the post office early in the morning (well, when I say early it was 8am) and the counter not even open yet. The message hanging on the door says "Kaunter Dibuka 8.30pg ~ 5.30ptg".  Yup I was early as to avoid queues.  So, after waited few minutes, the door open and I was the sixth person.  Here is the conversation at the counter,

Me: Assalamualaikum puan, saya nak renew license.
Che Puan Kaunter: Setahun RM30.  Nak renew berapa lama? (without answering my salam).
Me: 3 tahun.
Che Puan Kaunter: 92 ringgit.
Me: Kenapa 92 ringgit? (curious)
Che Puan Kaunter: 2 ringgit komisen.
Me: Owwwhhh... 

You know what, there was this lady before me renewing her license too at the beside counter but the that Encik Kaunter didn't took any commission 'cos I heard that lady too renew her license for 3 years period, paid with RM100, and the Encik Kaunter gave back RM10 to her.  I was wondering for who do the commissions actually to?

The Che Puan Kaunter start the process of her work while having a little chat with her colleague.  After few minutes, she suddenly said;

Che Puan Kaunter: Alamak dik! Sorry. Saya tersilap key-in data. Nak buat 3 tahun tapi saya  tertaip setahun.
Me: (Shocked). Owh ok, takpe..
Che Puan Kaunter: Nanti saya buat balik yea..
Me: Ok.

Then, she starts the whole process again and I have to wait another 10 minutes.  That's the problem when you people were talking while doing your work.  If you're competent enough you will be detail and oriented when doing the process 'cos you know there is the data you need to key-in.  But for me, she is still human being which did mistakes and that could be happen to anyone including me.  I went off after I got my license with saying thank you.

To be honest, me too is fair enough when dealing with people at counter because I didn't do that since I'm married.  Road tax renewals, all the bills and etc etc are done by Mr Hubby even he does it online.  Thanks to him who is so understands that his wife is too busy with her little Irfan which have no time to sit in front of the lappie when at home.  For me the most important thing when you're at counter are the grooming, the language and of course you smile.  Your smile can actually make people's day.

..ending up the intolerance..

I've been thinking A LOT of switching Irfan's formula milk. He'd been consuming ISOMIL by Abott Nutrition for the past 2 years. It started when he was 6 months old, he'd facing a problem when consuming cow's milk brands. No rashes but the wheezing sound which keep develop thru months! We went to a Paed, and he suggested to try Novalac. AlhamduLILLAH, he gets better until he reached the age of 1year old, the problem started again. Again we went to the Paed, and the Dr told us to that Irfan might be facing with lactose intolerance or allergic to cow's milk protein. Fyi, Irfan at that time cannot take egg or even worse half-boiled egg. My auntie once said, he may be facing with protein problem which his stomach cannot digest properly.  So, we continue the Isomil until now. The problem with Isomil is that he can easily get fever, flu and cough. At that time I was already suspected that he cannot consume Isomil anymore in which soy's milk have no enough good bacterias for baby's development compare to others cow's milk brand. Apart from that, he is still facing the wheezing sound problem and even worse he got admitted twice within a month due to bronchitis problem. My mom keep triggered me that we might have to look for another brand of his formula milk, but, am not sure what I did at that moment.  Until last week, we keep browsing the internet, asked the most intelligent Prof Google on lactose-free milk or non-fat cow's milk, make a comparison on each brands in the market and we end up to try on S-26 or Novalac.  After all of the study we've did, we made a decision to try those two brands first.

Am not sure whether those two brands are the best for him. But we will never know until we try it, right? No. Am not a typical mom where she does an experiment to her child on switching formula milk randomly. For me that is so "no brains" mom. Anyway, I have to try it first and observe him if there is any rashes, diarrhea or wheezing sound comes out.  Hopefully he will be fine. After all he is almost 3 years old and I believe his stomach can digests better than before and hope this will ending up the intolerance...
