I remember my confinement lady shared that she prefer not to take confinement job during Chinese New Year. Because she also wish to spend time with her family during Chinese New Year. Also, I have heard that there will be additional charges for confinement service during Chinese New Year. My confinement lady also shared that, if she is on confinement assignment during Chinese New Year, she will take a few days off starting from Chinese New Year eve and back to work on the 3rd or 4th day of Chinese New Year. So, with confinement centre, you do not need to worry about no one taking care of your confinement needs during Chinese New Year.

I would love to share my personal views on having confinement at confinement centre. Some of the advantages as below:

  1. More personal time with our own self after the pregnancy and delivery
  2. More privacy and able to rest better with less things to consider and less distraction
  3. Both baby and mummy in good hands
  4. No need to worry about confinement lady run away or quarrel with confinement lady
  5. No headache to buy confinement month needs for both mummy and baby (bath care, confinement food, body care). This will also save your money.
  6. No additional things need to prepare for confinement lady – additional bed, room, daily needs
  7. Able to share advice and mix around with other new mummies
  8. Avoid ‘family crisis’ during confinement month

To be fair, I would also share my view on having confinement at own home as below:

  1. Family member especially new father can join in the joy of having a new born 24/7. He also can learn to care for baby at an earlier stage
  2. At your own home, you will have everything you needs
  3. Other family members can join in to care for new born
  4. Friends and relatives can visit whenever they wish
  5. Order your own favorite confinement meals
  6. Confinement lady can also cook for new father. This is true for my case because my hubby only know how to cook instant noodle and fried eggs. It also depends on confinement lady because not all willing to take care of other family member as she’s paid to take care of new mummy and baby.
  7. Confinement lady fully taking care of one mummy and her baby only, no need to share attention with other mummies and babies
  8. Convenient for the father to send the mummy and baby for follow up at clinic

I hope my sharing here on confinement centre in Kuching will be able to provide alternative for mummies-to-be for her confinement month. If you had experience at these confinement centres, feel free to share your view at the comment column below.

If you still prefer to have a confinement lady to take care of you and your baby during your confinement, please drop a message below or send an email to me. I have 2 confinement ladies whom I can refer. The first one is my own confinement lady who took care of me and my baby in June 2016. The other is a friend whom I know and she has experience with confinement at Australia. I can tell, she is very experience and friendly too.

Twelve Years Old and Working Part-time

My 12-years-old niece who just completed her UPSR exam last week already start working part-time at a local supermarket. At first, I was surprised when she told me she’s planning to work after her UPSR exam. But, after she explained it, I think it is also a good idea for her to spend her free time.
Her mum (my sis-in-law) also supported her idea of working part-time at the supermarket for 2 reasons. First reason is so that my niece won’t be glued to her laptop from the time she wake up till she sleep at night. It’s true. Since she has laptop and internet connection, she spent almost 100% of her time facing her laptop and facebook.
Even when she’s doing her revision or homework, she still has her facebook page active. Wondering how she can concentrate on her study. Second reason is so that my niece will have her own pocket money to buy whatever she wish to have. Recently she told me she wants to buy a new smart phone.
Well, I guess there’s a third reason – so that she learn to manage her finance early and so that she learn that the money does not drop from the sky 🙂 Also, she’ll be exposed to the ‘working world’ and gain some experience from there.
Comparing with my niece, it was really a different world for me. For me, after I finished my UPRS, I just enjoy my free time to the fullest. Playing with my younger brother, watching television and spending time with my parents.
How time really change the way we live!
