Tummy ache: baby or ...?

Since we don't really plan to have baby yet for now, the stomach ache I had last week was quite worrying both of us. Lan really got cold sweat when I started to say "Maybe... I am really preg..." I did not even get the chance to finish the sentence, he stopped me right away. Heheh...
Well, a number of people do ask me about the 'good' news and even suggest me to buy a testpack. Thank you very much for being so caring. :) Even my mother asked me the same question. But, the answer is... not yet. Sorry to disappoint you, friends, but I am not pregnant at the moment.
Why am I so sure? Because my monthly guest has arrived! *yey!*

Well, it is not we do not want to have baby. It is just that we are not ready yet and, more importantly, we do not have a stable income for now. We depend on our scholarships of our study at the moment and for the next 3 years. So, I don't think it is really wise to have baby now and, thus, we are postponing it for the time being until we fe…

Is it about life, pain or comfort?

Two nights ago, I was going through the TV's channels until I was stuck to this one particular program named "Dispatched: Abortion, what you need to know". Apparently, UK government legally allows abortion in this country, as long as the pregnancy has not reached the 24th week. The reason is that: the scientific study shows that the fetus (baby in the womb) can only start to feel pain in the 24th week, where the brain is fully developed.
Some agree with the 'law' and feel comfortable to carry on the abortion activities in their clinics/hospitals, thinking that as long as the fetus cannot feel pain, they are not 'fully' alive. Not all agree for the same reason. One lady that spoke in the programme, said that we should make abortion legal in the thoughts of the women; What if they are not ready? What if pregnancy and baby become obstacle to their future? And many more what ifs...
Some, clearly, disagree to making abortion as legal. One argument is that premat…

malesku lagi kumat...

Lama ga post pake bahasa Indo...
tapi sayangnya post kali ini mesti bilang kalo penyakit males ngeblog lagi meracuni aku!
Plus seminggu ke belakang perut agak bermasalah, I got some kind of funny feeling!
Makan, tidur, duduk pun ga enak.
Rasanya seperti masuk angin, tapi kadang juga seperti ditusuk-tusuk oleh tusuk konde.
Tidur pun tak nyenyak, selalu kebangun akan mimpi-mimpi yang tak kumengerti...

Hayah... ada apa dengan badan ini?!

Being in the office...

Been awhile since my last post... I really don't know what to share. From two weeks ago, my routinity has started; going to the 'office' from Monday to Friday.
I call it a great thing, being a PhD student in this country (or maybe just UofL, they give us so many facilities. We got a shared office, where we have our own private PC (which includes the fast Internet) and our own desk. We even get all the stationary, coffee and teas provided for us! (You just have to bring your own cup!) However, those facilities really pay off what we are actually doing. Real research, real thinking. No more lectures, you work on your own motivation under the guidance of your supervisors.

Well, I have to thank The Lord for giving me such nice supervisors, that I knew well during my Master degree. But I am not pleased to say that I am having a hard time coming back to study after one year of rest. Still, I am trying my best, although sometimes it does give me a severe headache.
Another motivat…
