1. We can live without the NEP.
2. We think of ourselves as Malaysians first rather than Malay, Chinese or Indian, bumiputera or non-bumiputera.
3. Race-based politics no longer form the basis of our governing policies.
4. Those in power stop blatantly usurping taxpayers' hard-earned contributions.
5. When everything stops being too sensitive to be discussed.
6. When there is REAL freedom.
Rest assured, I'll be sure to play my part in this coming election to bring about these changes.

Everything's peachy except...maybe I could do with smaller boobs. I've had to run out several times to get myself tops in new sizes. No more S for me. I've had to look at M and even L!! Tops which are too tight only emphasize the enormity of the twin peaks (though they look more like trodden molehills than perky peaks) and tops which are too roomy just make me look fat overall. I am now averse to underwires, so it's my nursing bras all the way. No more going bra-less even at home or I'll end up soaking my T-shirts with spilt milk when Sophie cries or if the udders become too full. I don't even know what I'm going to wear when I get back to work. Sigh...
But I suppose it's a small price to pay for the satisfaction of hearing the bub's contented gasps and sighs when she's stuck on a boob and drinking her fill. And knowing that I'm the source of that content. Or rather, me = food = happy Sophia = contented sighs.
If this is all it takes to be a resident cow, I wouldn't mind trading the rat race for this greener field. For now this resident cow is pretty much enjoying the field that she's grazing in. And being milked by the little monster that she calls her babe.

Current weight: 4.7kg up from 3.6kg last week. Whoa!! The formula we've been feeding her twice a night or the increased intake of breast milk? No wonder my confinement lady's arm feels numb from trying to lull her to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.
I've decided to take Sophie out for a walk tomorrow morning. Would be good to get some fresh air into her lungs (then again, I don't know how fresh is fresh, seeing as how polluted our air is). In any case, a little bit of sun ought to do her good.
In the meantime, we've got to try to figure out why she's been fussy these past few days. My guess is my increased intake of low fat milk as well as her introduction to regular (cow's milk) formula.
We'll test that theory this week and see.

It just goes to show how limited my imagination is. The movie will be out later this year.
I visited the website and found my own daemon.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Philotheus:

The nurses in the peadiatric ward took this polaroid of Sophia for easy reference. She was admitted for a high level of jaundice. Her parental units schlepped back and forth to nurse her and to send her nightly supply of EBM (expressed breast milk). Total nights of stay: 3.
