Why I Am Doing What I Am Doing…

When I was growing up, both my parents were at the heights of their career.  Dad was busy travelling the world, fulfilling his duty as the country’s liaison on whatever committee that he was in, besides going back to his constituency, to fulfill his role as the elected representative.  Mom was busy crunching numbers for one of the largest shipping company in the country, besides making sure that all her 3 kids’ needs are being met.

I am not complaining that they are too busy to spend time with their kids.  In fact, I am thankful that they have done what they did, as I would not be the person that I am today without them.  They have thought me to work hard in order to get the things that I want.  They have also provided me with the best education that I can ask for.  They have never objected the choices that I have made in life.  In fact, they have provided me with the guidance that I needed to succeed.

With that, I am truly grateful to have such great parents.

Now, I am trying to become one too.

Since Noah was born, I have been missing many of his development milestones due to work.  I had to leave him for almost a week when he was only 6 months old for a business trip to Istanbul.  It really broke my heart to leave my baby at that point of time, especially when he was still fully breastfeeding.  That was the turning point for me as a mother.  After that I had promised myself to never put work before my family’s needs.

However, it was really hard to juggle between the pursuit to become a successful career woman and a great mom.  I again failed to stand by my promise to myself and had succumbed to the career demand.

2 more years had passed and I am still holding the same position in my career (though in a different organisation).  I am still not earning as much as I think I am worth (call me ungrateful, but I seriously think that I am worth more than what I am earning currently).  Despite being a specialist in the area that I am in, and saving the company thousands (or even millions) of ringgit in consultancy fees (they have reduced the need to hire consultants since I joined), I have yet to receive THE recognition that I think I deserve.

Hence, I am back to the point where I have sacrificed my time for my family over something that is not truly rewarding.

That is the reason why I have embarked on this Premium Beautiful journey.  Charting my way on the road less travelled.  It has been 8 great months and the reward is really fulfilling.

Even our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w once said that 90% of our rezeki comes from business (90 % rezeki yang Allah berikan kepada manusia di dunia ini, adalah melalui perniagaan).

In this business, you get what you earn.  The more effort you put into the business, the higher the return.  You are your own boss.  You determine your own income.  Hence, there is no more issue of not getting what you deserve as you determine your own destiny.

In my pursuit to become a Mumpreneur, I am giving my everything right now to ensure that I will be able to spend more time with Noah and his soon to be born brother (insyaAllah) in the near future.  I am determined to make sure that I will be available to send and pick-up Noah to and from his pre-school  on a daily basis, have every meal with him, and give him and his brother all the attention that they need and deserve.  Also, I am determined to give them the best that they deserve.

I am auwed by other successful Mumpreneurs in the Green Leader Group such as the great leader, CDM Hanis Haizi (mother of 2) and CDM Salha Zain (mother of 2) who had managed to juggle between being a great business women and super mom.  They are such inspirational Mumpreneurs.

With God’s willing, I pray that I would be able to follow their footsteps real soon.

My all time favourite poem from a great poet that had been my inspiration throughout my journey in life since back in 2006.

The Road Not Taken  by Robert Frost

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Premium Beautiful Testimonial: Back Pain and Slipped Disc

Time for me to share another greatness of Premium Beautiful

Suffering from back pain or slipped disc?

These are some of the testimonials from Premium Beautiful customers and agents that had suffered from back pain and slipped disc…

From CDM Salha Zain:

Semalam i berjumpe dengan sorang customer pb yang memang dah lame suffer back pain..dulu my customer ni sampai pakai wheel chair..memang back pain yang severe…sampai husband pun dah taktau nk buat cane lagi…bertahun2 jugak beliau suffer ngan back pain ni…and my customer ni cakap, yang buatkan die lagi sedih bile die nk dapat nk dukung anak beliau…

Alhamdulillah, baru after sebulan je pakai pb…back pain makin lame makin hilang and the happiest moment die cakap bile dia boleh dukung baby die sambil jalan and siap die boleh bendkan badan and die tak rase sakit lagi…

From Norshidah Kamarudin:

Mengimbau sejarah kesakitanku..6 months before my wedding…!!! Just imagine with loads of wedding stuff to settle on my own and it happened when I was ironing my shirt (nak pegi keje masa kat umah mak) then tetibe terbersin and I ter-twist pinggangku ala2 nak menyabit gitu..alah macam orang main golf tengah nk swing kayu golf dia tu kan..haa gitulah mak terbersin penuh aksi uols..!! ambik ko pastu terus takleh bergerakkkk…!!!! beraksi sangatkan…?! Sepanjang2 kesakitan tu kene tunggu adikku balik dari kerja utk hantar ke hospital time tu.

sampai kat Hospital Columbia Asia Seremban terus masuk emergency sebab tak boleh nak jalan..nak turun ketepun berdukung sebab tak boleh nak luruskan badan langsung…imagine…!!! terasa OKU jap..lagi2 kene duduk kat wheelchair..aduss malu mak!… time paling hazab masa nurse mintak naik atas bed sebab nak cucuk painkiller terus kt lower back tuh coz I was crying and crying everytime nak bergerak..haruslah admit ke ward kan..!! after siap xray then MRI then blood test n blablabla of testing..I was diagnosed having sciatica at L5S1 then di-upgrade as disc herniation ..ape kebendanya nombor tuh…? its the location of the disc yang affected..so mine kat lumbar spine..!!! hazabbb

So I did my reasearch on this pain and refer few of orthopedic and surgeon coz doctor yang ni cakap tak yah operate, yang ni suh replace disc to artificial disc lah, ada doc suh remove the disc terus pun ada…!!! Operate is my last resort..kalau dah tak boleh jalan due to this pain then I have to surrender..mana tak takot..? my disc yg affected tu sangat dekat dgn nerve okeyy.. if stupid mistakes happened masa tengah operation tu could make me paralyzed…? ohh nonononno..katelah hape doc,saya takmo takmo takmo…risky! takotttt..!!

But I didn’t duduk diam2 dan berserah pasrah dah nasib ku kene disc problem ni..It is not a minor pain ye korang…!! when its strikes that’s it…!! mulalah nak gerak sikit pun SAKIT….!!!dengan sengal2 yg tak tau nak buat camane utk kurangkan..been thru loads of treatments such as the common physiotherapy sessions yang akan letak kita on machine yang ada vibration effect utk lancarkan aliran darah (tak ingat nama machine tu dah) then put on InfraRed machine kaler merah yang panas diarahkan ke area yang kita sakit and mesti buat some exercise utk kuatkan muscle on every session..

tell u the truth, the pain just gone for few hours then it comes back..!! I don’t know about others, but to me it doesn’t work..tak ingat dah berapa lama i’m on physio treatment..ada berbulan2 jugak sampai satu tahap rasa penat ulang alik pegi hospital je then sampai rumah, sakit balik..!serupa tak yah pegipun takpe..dahla mahal per sessionkan..nasiblah company cover physioterapi..kalu tak hancuss bajet ahkak kikiki..so i try pulak urut2 traditional..ada yang melegakan tak kurang jugak yang menambahkan sakit sampai berhari2 nak jalanpun macam orang tua okeyyy..urghhhh my life was horrible time tuh…!!!!!

untillah I found about this Premium Beautiful corset can loose weight and also relieved back pain….!!! waaaaaaa i need this i need this…!! Maka tanpa pikir panjang, I just bought coz my aim is nak kuruskan badan, kurangkan berat utk treat my slipped disc issue nih…tak sesabar dah..!!

Premium Beautiful Testimonial: Period Pain

Premium Beautiful & Period Pain

 

 

Many suffers from period pain every month.  Some gets it irregularly due to their irregular menstrual cycle.  However, the pain that women experience during these times are excruciatingly unbearable.

Some use the hot water bottle to ease the pain.  Others opt for medication that only helps to take away the pain at that point of time.  They would have to take the medication on a regular basis (every time their menstrual cycle starts).  These are just temporary measures that you would have to repeat every month.

I know of a friend that would have to take MC every time she gets her period.  At times, she will take off work for 2-3 days just to overcome her period pain.  And this had affected her work performance to the extend that the HR issues her a warning for taking too many MCs in a year.  That sucks rite?

Premium Beautiful can help to ease period pain as the Far Infrared Rays (FIR) in the fabric helps to regulates the blood system in the body.  Hence, it eliminates the chances of blood clots in the body.  Most of the sickness that are related to women like migraine, period pain, fibroid, cysts can be reduced with constant wearing of Premium Beautiful for a minimum of 8 hours a day.

Here is a testimony from Salha Zain‘s client on how Premium Beautiful had helped her ease her period pain.

My friend ni ade masalah period tak teratur… tapi masalahnyer.. die sering dapat senggugut walaupun tak period.. kesian my friend nih… 2 days before die pakai PB.. senggugut die datang teruk tapi tak jugak period2.. then bile die dh received set PB die terus pakai 8 jam for that day…
after 8 jam, terkejut tak terkejutla kan… malam tu terus period… and surprisingly takde senggugut langsung… selama ni siap kene beli pil kt pharmacy nk hilangkan period pain… now even period, perut rase selesa je.. boleh siap jalan2 shopping lagi…

Premium Beautiful and Ovarian Cyst

I have been highlighting a lot about how Premium Beautiful can help you to lose weight, tone your body and make you look good.  However, there is more to Premium Beautiful than the beauty factors.

Premium Beautiful is designed for 70% health and 30% beauty.

Let me share with you on how Premium Beautiful can help with Ovarian Cyst.

What is an Ovarian Cyst?


An ovarian cyst is any collection of fluid, surrounded by a very thin wall, within an ovary. Any ovarian follicle that is larger than about two centimeters is termed an ovarian cyst. An ovarian cyst can be as small as a pea, or larger than an orange.

Most ovarian cysts are functional in nature and harmless (benign).[1] In the US, ovarian cysts are found in nearly all premenopausal women, and in up to 14.8% of postmenopausal women.[citation needed]

Ovarian cysts affect women of all ages. They occur most often, however, during a woman’s childbearing years.

Some ovarian cysts cause problems, such as bleeding and pain. Surgery may be required to remove cysts larger than 5 centimeters in diameter.

Source: Wikipedia

It is a common thing today to find a young lady that has ovarian cyst.  My younger sister had it a few years ago and the doctor that she first consulted suggested surgery as an option without any hesitation.  And if I am not mistaken, two of the friends did undergo surgery for the same problem.  Mind you, they were still young (below 30 years of age at that point of time!).

Surgery is not the only solution for Ovarian Cyst (provided that the cyst is not larger than 5 cm and does not change its form into ovarian cancer).  Even if you opt for surgery, there are still chances that it might grow back at the same place or on the other pair of ovary.

How far can we guarantee that the cyst will shrink on its own?

Are you willing to consult your doctor every single month just to follow-up on the cyst growth?

Are you willing to depend on medication every single day, hoping that the cyst will be gone?

Premium Beautiful can help with this problem with constant wearing of the corset for at least 8 hours a day.  InsyaAllah, with God’s willing, the problem can be overcome.

How?

Because, Premium Beautiful has FIR (Far Infrared Rays) embedded in the corset that functions to:

  1. promotes elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood;
  2. stimulates enzyme activity and metabolism
  3. repair and restore imbalanced anatomic nervous system and helps stabilizes the blood organ functions

and most importantly, FIR is anti-cancer in nature.

Here are some testimonies from other Premium Beautiful users that have had Ovarian Cyst.

You can also read on how Premium Beautiful had helped Aienn Latifi to deal with Ovarian Cyst here.
