Kertas kabinet mengenai cuti bersalin swasta dibentang Januari ini

KUALA LUMPUR -- Cadangan cuti bersalin selama 90 hari mengikut pilihan bagi pekerja sektor swasta akan dibawa ke kabinet pada Januari depan, kata Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

Beliau berkata kertas kabinet mengenainya akan dibentangkan untuk mendapatkan kelulusan Jemaah Menteri bagi membolehkan Kementerian Sumber Manusia meminda Akta Pekerjaan 1955 dalam usaha memberi jumlah cuti bersalin yang sama kepada pekerja swasta, seperti yang ditetapkan bagi pekerja sektor awam.

"Kita sedang menyediakan kertas kabinet dan selepas dua minggu dalam bulan Januari ini ia akan dibentangkan. Jadi selepas itu mereka (Kementerian Sumber Manusia) kena bawa ke Parlimen," katanya kepada pemberita selepas majlis perasmian Sidang Kemuncak Wanita 2010 oleh Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin di sini hari ini.

Shahrizat berkata kementeriannya juga akan membawa satu lagi kertas kabinet berkenaan isu meningkatkan penyertaan wanita dalam lembaga pengarah syarikat-syarikat.

"Saya amat tidak puas hati bila tengok wanita yang diberi tempat dalam board (lembaga) termasuk GLC (syarikat berkaitan kerajaan). Kenapa tidak (diberi tempat) walhal wanita ramai sekali yang mempunyai kebolehan.

Beliau berkata perincian kertas kabinet itu juga akan memasukkan pelan strategi dalam masa beberapa tahun tentang jumlah peratus wanita yang mesti berada di dalam barisan anggota lembaga pengarah syarikat di bursa saham.

"Kita akan mengambil kira tentang situasi pasaran dan strategi dalam perkara ini. Contohnya dalam masa lima tahun di mana wanita akan berada dalam tempoh berkenaan.

"Bukan (permintaan secara) mendadak, sebab tak boleh buat macam itu kerana ia akan menjejaskan pasaran dan lain-lain. (Cadangan ini) supaya semua pihak boleh membuat persiapan," katanya.

Beliau berkata selepas 10 tahun kementerian itu diwujudkan, agenda wanita semakin dipandang serius di mana ia sudah menjadi satu agenda kritikal di dalam kerajaan, politik, ekonomi dan semua aspek pembangunan negara. -- BERNAMA

Duty of all to stop child abuse


2010/11/28
Hans Olsen

EARLIER this year, the life of a small child was cut short. She died from injuries to her brain, stomach and kidneys inflicted by an adult who was taking care of her, a person she should have been able to trust and depend on.
An autopsy conducted found cuts and bruises all over her body, believed to have resulted from previous instances of abuse. Her case was, and is, not an isolated incident.

According to 2008 statistics from the Welfare Department, the number of abuse cases is increasing and now, an average of seven children are abused in different ways every day in Malaysia.

But these figures are only based on reported incidents. Many more children are hidden behind these numbers and if they eventually get recorded, it may already be too late.

Can we prevent these abuses from happening at all? Yes, I believe we can. But to achieve this, everyone must regard child abuse as unacceptable and be prepared to take action and intervene.

In the case of this child, there were witnesses who saw her being abused close to her home. No one interfered. I can't believe that this was because they condoned what they saw. I think there is a widespread uncertainty about how to interpret what you see and how to act. Had these witnesses known how to act and be prepared to do it, the small Malaysian child may still be alive today.


There are mechanisms in place to support such action. Police and government agencies are trained to handle this kind of cases. An immediate report would have mobilised a team of law enforcers to save the child from further abuse and, in this case, death. Intervention depends on family members, neighbours and bystanders who have the knowledge and spirit to intervene and put a stop to the abuse before it is too late.

In line with the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Malaysia has introduced the Child Act 2001 to guarantee the protection for children. With this legislation, not only can abusers be held accountable for their actions, informers are guaranteed anonymity and protection by law.

Furthermore, Childline Malaysia, a civil society initiative, has collaborated with the government to set up the dedicated hotline, 15999, where the public, as well as children themselves, can call for advice or report abuse. It is crucial that people know and utilise these services, and that they feel they can make a difference.


We need to empower ourselves with knowledge about child abuse and what we can do as individuals or in groups to stop it. To provide an opportunity for this, Unicef has set up a dedicated website, www.uniteagainstabuse.my, where people can learn more about the issue and what to do to protect a child from abuse.

This website is part of the larger Get on Board campaign by Unicef to encourage people to break their silence and take responsibility for the children around them -- be it in their home and families or in their communities. We each have an important role to play.

The Get on Board campaign clearly recognises the challenges parents go through in raising children, and provides a link to special services provided by the government to help cope with the stresses of parenting.

Unicef also urges communities to provide support activities for parents to manage the stress they face. By focusing on efforts to stabilise families and provide support for healthy child development, we are collectively creating an environment around us that reduces the likelihood of child abuse.

Every child has the right to grow up in a safe environment and to be sheltered from all forms of abuse, be it physical, emotional, sexual or neglect. This environment is only possible when society unites around children's basic rights, openly confronting violence and defending their right to protection.

While the government is primarily accountable for translating the Convention on the Rights of the Child into reality, parents and other caregivers, like teachers, health workers, youth leaders as well as children themselves, have a crucial role to play every day to protect the rights of children.

Very young children who lack the capacity to report abuse, or older children who fear reprisals by perpetrators should be able to rely on the people around them to take action.

What we see in statistics of reported cases only tells us a small part of the truth about child abuse in Malaysia. We need to know more. Thorough research is needed to help the government establish benchmarks for measurement of child abuse.

Data from this research would also make it possible to monitor future trends in abusive behaviour towards children and society's attitude towards it. This kind of evidence-based intervention is equally important for individual interventions by family members and the community.

We cannot wait for more children to die or be scarred for life. Everyone must be ready to take action. The silence must be broken. I invite the people of Malaysia to get on board and unite against child abuse.

Call to extend breast screening

By Helen Briggs
Health reporter, BBC News


Annual screening for women in their 40s with a family history of breast cancer may save lives, research suggests.

The NHS breast screening programme currently offers mammograms to women aged between 50 and 70.

But UK researchers say a pilot study suggests regular mammograms should be given to younger women who have relatives with breast cancer.

A cancer charity said more data was needed to weigh up risks and benefits.

The study, published in the journal Lancet Oncology, looked at women deemed at moderate risk of breast cancer because they have relatives with the disease.

Screening is considered unjustified in women with no family history of breast cancer because of the risk of a false-alarm.

Women at high-risk - because they are thought to have a gene mutation associated with the disease - are already closely assessed, with many given MRI scans or offered early surgery.


False alarms

The study recruited 6,710 moderate risk women across the UK who were given mammograms to check for signs of breast cancer every year for four years.

These women are not currently included in the main NHS breast screening programme, which offers mammograms to women aged 50-70 every three years.

The researchers, led by Professor Stephen Duffy of Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary, University of London, compared cancer rates and deaths in this group with women from other trials who were not given annual screening.

They say the women given screening were significantly more likely to be alive 10 years after a diagnosis of cancer than women in the two control groups.

Professor Duffy told the BBC: "It means that annual mammography does reduce the risk of dying of breast cancer in this group of moderate risk women.

"It means they can go and seek medical help knowing that there is something that can be done."

Rough figures suggest that it would probably save an extra 50 lives a year, he added.

"It doesn't sound like much but it means alot to the people who are in that group because they have relatives who have had breast cancer," he explained. "It's not a huge expense to the NHS."


Surveillance

But Hazel Nunn, senior health information manager at Cancer Research UK, said the full picture was not yet clear.

"Since it seems 5,000 women would need to be screened to save one life, it will be important to weigh up these benefits carefully against potential risks of routine mammography before deciding whether screening really is the best course of action for this group," she said.

"We await the results of further research measuring the risks."

The NHS Breast Screening Programme said plans were in place to extend screening to women with a family history of breast cancer in the future.

Assistant Director, Sarah Sellars, said current guidelines for women at risk of breast cancer because of their family history recommend that certain women should be offered surveillance.

She said these services were currently commissioned locally but in the future would be run by them.

"In the future, the NHS Breast Screening Programmes will be taking on responsibility for routinely screening higher risk women under 50," she said.

"Several breast screening sites are currently testing the software to be able to manage these women effectively.

"This service will sit alongside our current breast screening programme for women aged 50 years old and over."

Sarawakian woman rescues lost child on bus


NOBLE DEED: Nur Asyikin receiving a letter of commendation from Abdul Rahim for rescuing the lost toddler

KUALA LUMPUR: If it was not for a mother-of-two, three-year-old Mohd Amin Rozi may have disappeared forever after boarding a bus alone on Wednesday morning with a milk bottle in hand.

Nur Asyikin Rufi became concerned when she noticed the boy looking lost and restless as he was constantly changing seats.

The Sarawakian, in her 40s, was sitting at the back of the bus and became suspicious when she saw a foreigner speaking to the boy.

"I did what any mother would have done," she said, walking forward to rescue the child. "The boy was unresponsive when I asked him questions. So, I called 999."

Nur Asyikin then got off at Jalan Tun Hussein and carried the boy to the police station, as advised over the phone. She also lodged a report after handing the child to police officers.

"I hope this is a serious lesson learnt by every parent as such young children are naive and vulnerable."

Expressing disappointment that no one aboard the bus tried to help Amin, she said: "We should also look out for other children around us."

The police took photographs of the boy before handing him over to the Welfare Department in Jalan Pahang. Copies of his photo were distributed at the Sri Sabah flats area, where the boy was seen waiting before boarding the bus.

At 5.30pm on Wednesday, a couple arrived at the Cheras district police station, claiming their grandchild had gone missing. The boy, whom they called Amin, had apparently been sleeping while the grandfather was washing his car.

Neither of them realised the boy had woken up and wandered off. Amin's mother also arrived at the police station later to retrieve her child, but police refused to release him until a DNA test was conducted.

When the test results confirmed the grandparents and mother were indeed related to the boy and the necessary documentation were produced, Cheras acting police chief Supt Abdul Rahim Hamzah Othman allowed the child to be reunited with his family yesterday.

"What happened here is typical curiosity of children at such an age. As adults, we should be more aware of their tendencies and look out for them," said Abdul Rahman, who gave a letter of commendation to Nur Asyikin yesterday.

It was learnt the bus driver was not aware of the boy's presence as Mohd Amin was hidden among the passengers when he boarded the bus. The bus had travelled 10km before he was noticed by Nur Asyikin.

Meanwhile, Bernama reported the boy was suffering from a hyperactive disorder. His mother, Norhaslinda Hashim, 23, said she was working when informed by her mother about her missing child at about 1pm.

Norhaslinda said she would try to keep a close watch on her son from now.

Kisah menyayat hati

Semoga Allah merahmati roh-roh mereka dan semoga kita semua dijauhkan dari dugaan berat seperti ini.

Rentung bersujud
Oleh Ibrahim Isa

MUSNAH...Rusidah dan Asaari melihat katil mangsa yang rentung dalam kebakaran, semalam.

BATU PAHAT: “Tolong mak, tolong Nini mak,” itulah jeritan akhir ibu tunggal, Lenny Mariyana Daud, 29, sebelum ditemui rentung dalam kedudukan bersujud sambil memeluk anak tunggalnya, Nur Sabihah Qasreena Mohd Nizam, 3, yang turut maut dalam kebakaran di Kampung Seri Paya Darat, Ayer Hitam di sini, awal pagi semalam.

Dalam kejadian jam 1.30 pagi itu, Lenny dipercayai hanya sempat menjerit meminta bantuan buat beberapa saat disertai tangisan kuat Sabihah ketika cuba menyelamatkan diri dari biliknya.
Lenny yang bakal mendirikan rumah tangga buat kali kedua hujung tahun ini dipercayai gagal melarikan diri dengan anaknya melalui pintu dan tingkap bilik akibat asap tebal selain api marak.

Melihat api marak selain kesukaran menyelamatkan diri, Lenny dipercayai hanya mampu membongkok seperti bersujud sambil memeluk anaknya sebelum dua beranak itu ditemui rentung di sudut tepi katil oleh anggota Bomba dan Penyelamat, kira-kira jam 4 pagi.

Kakaknya, Ratna Dewi, 35, berkata Lenny pulang ke rumah selepas membawa ibu mereka, Saringatin Jalal, 65, berurut di kampung bersebelahan pada kira-kira jam 12 tengah malam.

“Selepas itu, Lenny membasuh baju dan bersolat sebelum tidur di biliknya pada jam 1 pagi. Kira-kira setengah jam kemudian, ketika berehat di ruang tamu, saya terdengar bunyi hentakan kaki ke lantai.

“Pada mulanya, saya ingatkan dia mengigau dan tidak mengendahkan bunyi berkenaan, namun ia semakin kuat diikuti jeritan Nini meminta tolong serta tangisan anaknya.

“Saya dan ibu bergegas ke bilik dan membuka pintu, namun api marak menyebabkan kami gagal membawa mereka keluar,” katanya di lokasi kejadian, semalam.

Ratna berkata, tidak lama kemudian jeritan meminta tolong dan tangisan anak saudaranya itu tidak lagi kedengaran dan dia terus menjerit meminta enam lagi ahli keluarga yang lain menyelamatkan diri apabila melihat api semakin merebak.

Ratna berkata, abangnya cuba memadamkan api dengan menyimbah air di tingkap bagi membolehkan Lenny terjun menyelamatkan diri, namun api terlalu marak.

Sementara itu, adik bongsu mangsa, Seri Rusidah, 25, berkata, dia hanya sedar berkaitan kejadian apabila terdengar jeritan ibunya mengatakan rumah terbakar.

“Ketika itu saya dan suami, Asaari Mohd Muji, 26, nyenyak tidur sebelum pintu bilik di ketuk ahli keluarga yang meminta kami melarikan diri kerana rumah dijilat api.

“Saya bersama suami terus keluar untuk mendapatkan bantuan, malangnya apabila kembali, rumah sudah hangus manakala kakak serta anaknya gagal diselamatkan.

“Sayu hati kami melihat dua beranak berkenaan rentung dengan arwah kakak dalam keadaan bersujud memeluk arwah Sabihah,” katanya.

Am I ready for another baby?

Non-daily contraceptive options available include the levonorgestrel intrauterine system, copper intrauterine device, progestogen implants, and sterilisation.

JULIE, 33, is a senior manager at an accounting firm. She has been married for five years and recently gave birth to her second child, Jayden, 10 months ago. Her first child, Caitlin, is two years old.

Although Julie and her husband are very happy to have a son, they did not plan on adding to the family so soon as they are both still focused on building their careers. Julie’s unplanned pregnancy happened when she forgot to take her oral contraceptive pills, and she does not want to run the risk of being surprised with another child in the next few years.

For couples such as Julie and her husband, deciding whether to expand your family by one more – whether this would be your second child or your fourth – is one of the most significant decisions you will make in your lifetime. Assuming that you have struck a happy balance with your present family size, it is understandable that mothers can be pulled between the joys of having another child and a reluctance to upset the balance that currently exists.

While you and your husband are still deciding on whether you wish to have more children, it is essential to have effective and reversible contraception.

Non-daily contraceptive options available today include the levonorgestrel intrauterine system, copper intrauterine device, progestogen implants, and sterilisation.

The advantages of these methods are that they require less action by the user, and for levonorgestrel and progestogen implants, create steady blood hormone levels due to continuous release of a low dose of hormones.

A ‘fit and forget contraception’

The levonorgestrel intrauterine system or LNG-IUS is one of the most effective contraceptive options available when compared with other methods such as condoms, oral contraceptive pills, and hormone injections. Most importantly, this method does not require daily patient compliance as it provides continuous and effective contraception for up to five years.

The LNG-IUS is a small, T-shaped device made of impregnated plastic that is placed inside the uterus (womb) to provide continuous contraceptive protection. The LNG-IUS releases a progestogen called levonorgestrel (LNG), which acts directly on the lining of the uterus to make it thin and unreceptive to implantation of a fertilised egg, and changes the lining of the fallopian tubes and the mucous produced by the cervix to make it difficult for sperm to swim.

In some women, it also stops ovulation from occurring.

The insertion of LNG-IUS can be carried out in your doctor’s clinic within minutes. Once inserted, you should not be aware of the system. The device is removed by your doctor after five years, or earlier if contraception is no longer required. If further contraception is needed, a new system is inserted at the same time as removal of the previous system.

The most common side effect of the LNG-IUS is a change in the pattern of your periods. This can include an increased time between periods or longer periods, but the longer the LNG-IUS is in place, the more likely that periods will become fewer (further apart) or, for some women, absent altogether.

The LNG-IUS is useful for women who need effective long-term contraception, have just had a baby, who need a reversible alternative to sterilisation, and those who are dissatisfied with other methods of contraception. Compliance is good as it is a “fit and forget” method, which makes it convenient to use. The LNG-IUS is also becoming an increasingly preferred alternative to the irreversibility of sterilisation among women in developed nations.

An advantage of the LNG-IUS is that it can provide effective contraception for a mother who is breastfeeding as the hormone effect is contained within the womb and will not affect the composition or volume of breast milk produced. Other benefits of the LNG-IUS include reduced menstrual flow and pain, a shorter duration of menstrual bleeding, as well as increased haemoglobin and serum ferritin (iron) levels.

Normal menstruation generally returns within 30 days after removal of the LNG-IUS, and a woman’s usual level of fertility returns quickly after removal, with conception rates becoming equal to before IUS use (90% within the first year). Pregnancies progress as normal with no increased risk of foetal abnormalities.

The Copper IUD (Cu-IUD)

A Cu-IUD is also inserted into the uterus and may be left in the uterus for up to 10 years. However, it is different from the LNG-IUS in that it does not release hormones, but copper, into the uterus. Copper is toxic to sperm. The presence of an IUD interferes with the movement of sperm, fertilisation of eggs, and implantation. Cu-IUDs may sometimes cause increased menstrual flow, cramps, or backaches.

A Cu-IUD is a small plastic device that has a stem wound with fine copper wire. It looks like a small anchor with two side branches. Attached to the base of the stem is a nylon string. The string hangs out from the uterus through the cervix and can be felt with the fingers high in the vagina.

The insertion procedure for the copper IUD is similar to the LNG-IUS. Fertility will also return with the removal of the copper IUD.

The implant

The contraceptive hormonal implant is inserted under the skin of the inner, upper arm to provide three years of contraceptive protection. The implant is made of plastic containing a progestogen, and is 2mm wide and 4cm long – similar in shape and size to a match stick.

Your doctor will remove the implant after it has been in place for three years, or at any time prior to this if the contraceptive effect is no longer required. Normal fertility returns soon after removal of the implant. To continue contraception, a new implant must be inserted at the time of removal of the previous one.

The contraceptive hormonal implant will continuously release a progestogen hormone called etonogestrel, which prevents ovulation from occurring each month. This means that no egg is available for fertilisation, so pregnancy is avoided. The contraceptive hormonal implant also changes the mucous produced by the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus.

Even though the contraceptive hormonal implant is inserted and removed with just a local anaesthetic, you need to be comfortable with the idea of having an implant placed under your skin if you plan to use this contraceptive option. Prolonged, irregular or absent periods, acne, weight gain, headache, and breast tenderness are among the side-effects that have been reported in some women using the contraceptive hormonal implant.

Sterilisation

This is an irreversible method of contraception which can be performed on either the male or female. In tubal ligation for the female, the Fallopian tubes are cut and stitched to prevent the ovum (egg) from reaching the uterus. It is a surgical procedure requiring a general anaesthetic.

In the male, a vasectomy is a minor surgical procedure that interrupts the vas deferens (tube that connects the testes to the urinary tract), preventing the sperm from entering the urinary tract, so that semen is ejaculated without sperm. A vasectomy is usually done under local anaesthetic. Sterilisation results in permanent infertility in the female or male in which the procedure is done and cannot be reversed.

Deciding on whether your family is complete or not is a personal decision and one that needs to be discussed thoroughly with your partner and other family members. Family members bond through the process of being considered in the decision making process. Discussing and gathering input will help you and your children prepare for the challenges and the joys of adding a new member to the family.

Nevertheless, until you and your husband decide that the family is ready, effective contraception is a vital consideration in avoiding an unplanned pregnancy.

Bayi dijual RM10,000 perkg.

KUALA LUMPUR: Mengejutkan, hospital swasta di Jalan Ipoh, yang diserbu polis kerana dipercayai terbabit dalam sindiket penjualan bayi petang kelmarin, didapati sudah tamat tempoh lesen operasinya sejak April lalu.

Selepas serbuan polis yang membongkar aktiviti haram itu, tinjauan Berita Harian semalam mendapati hospital berkenaan berkunci dan diletakkan tanda “ditutup”.

Tindakan itu dikatakan berikutan penahanan enam suspek termasuk pemilik hospital yang juga seorang doktor bergelar Datuk, isterinya dan anak perempuan mereka juga doktor serta tiga jururawat hospital itu. Mereka ditahan reman selama tiga hari mulai semalam.

Sumber Kementerian Kesihatan memberitahu, hospital itu kini pada peringkat rayuan untuk memperbaharui lesen, namun enggan mendedahkan sebab lambat mendapat kelulusan.

“Hospital itu ada membuat permohonan memperbaharui lesen, namun disebabkan beberapa isu, kita masih belum meluluskannya,” katanya yang enggan mendedahkan butiran lanjut.

Berita Harian semalam mendedahkan, Unit Anti Pemerdagangan Orang Bukit Aman menyerbu hospital itu dan menahan enam suspek berkenaan kira-kira jam 4.15 petang selepas selesai urusan menjual seorang bayi perempuan berusia seminggu di hospital itu kepada sepasang suami isteri dengan harga RM21,000.
Dalam kejadian itu, polis juga berjaya menyelamatkan seorang bayi lelaki berusia kira-kira empat bulan. Kedua-dua bayi yang diselamatkan itu kini diletakkan di se-buah pusat perlindungan Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat.

Sumber itu berkata, pihaknya banyak menerima aduan mengenai salah laku hospital dan klinik swasta yang dipercayai menjual bayi itu, namun sehingga kini tiada sebarang laporan diterima.

Katanya, jika hospital itu didapati bersalah menjual bayi, Kementerian Kesihatan mungkin menarik semula lesen operasinya, sementara pembatalan bagi lesen perubatan doktor berkenaan adalah di bawah kuasa Majlis Perubatan Malaysia (MMC).

“MMC akan membuat inkuiri dalaman dan akan memanggil doktor berkenaan untuk membela diri. Jika terbukti bersalah, mereka akan membuat keputusan sama ada untuk menggantung atau membatalkan lesen terbabit,” katanya.

Sementara itu, jurucakap MMC berkata, doktor itu sememangnya berdaftar di bawah majlis berkenaan.

Dalam operasi polis kelmarin, polis turut merampas sijil lahir bayi perempuan itu dan wang tunai RM21,000 dipercayai dibayar suami isteri berkenaan.

Siasatan awal polis mendapati pasangan itu, membeli bayi perempuan berkenaan selepas berurusan sejak sebulan lalu.

Hospital itu dipercayai memalsukan maklumat ibu bapa kandung bayi itu bagi membolehkan pasangan suami isteri terbabit mendapatkan sijil kelahiran yang mereka perolehi pada hari yang sama dengan dibantu kakitangan hospital itu.

Difahamkan, harga bayi dijual sindiket itu boleh mencecah lebih RM30,000 mengikut bangsa dan jantina. Harga bayi lelaki dikatakan lebih mahal yang biasanya dijual antara RM15,000 ke RM20,000. Bayi berbangsa Cina pula paling mahal dan dijual mengikut berat, iaitu RM10,000 sekilogram berikutan permintaannya tinggi dan sukar diperoleh.

Pantau anak marah


KUALA LUMPUR: Ibu bapa harus memainkan peranan penting untuk menyekat pendedahan terhadap keganasan sama ada menerusi televisyen, video dan Internet yang boleh mempengaruhi perilaku anak mereka.

Pakar psikologi Universiti Teknologi Mara, Prof Dr Amelia Abd Aziz berkata, remaja sememangnya mudah terpengaruh dengan apa yang mereka lihat dan dengar serta akan mengaplikasikan perilaku itu apabila berdepan perkara yang membuat mereka marah.

“Baik remaja mahupun orang dewasa, apabila diselubungi perasaan marah, mereka akan bertindak di luar pemikiran waras sehingga melakukan sesuatu yang buruk tanpa sedar.

“Mereka sedikit sebanyak akan mengikuti perlakuan yang pernah dilihat sebelum ini,” katanya.

Beliau mengulas muka depan akhbar ini semalam yang melaporkan kejadian remaja berusia 14 tahun mati akibat terkena serpihan kaca yang diacukan oleh kakaknya selepas pertengkaran berebutkan alat kawalan jauh televisyen.

Menurutnya, mungkin suspek tidak berniat membunuh mangsa namun apabila berada dalam keadaan marah dan tertekan, dia terdorong untuk bertindak sedemikian.

Katanya, pertengkaran yang berlaku sehingga terjadinya cabar mencabar juga mungkin menyentap kesabaran suspek sehingga bertindak mengacukan serpihan kaca kepada mangsa.

“Keupayaan untuk mengawal kemarahan adalah penting supaya mereka dapat mengendalikan emosi dengan baik.

“Justeru, ibu bapa perlu memahami perilaku anak mereka dan perubahan yang berlaku terhadap tingkah laku mereka perlu dipantau,” katanya.

Reports over bosses mistreating pregnant staff on the rise


KUALA LUMPUR: There has been an increase in the number of reports from women workers who claim their employers discriminate against those who are pregnant.

Among complaints normally given by employers is that pregnant women under-perform in their duties.

MCA public services and complaints bureau head Datuk Michael Chong said he has received six complaints from women who alleged their bosses gave them a hard time, leading them to resign from their jobs.

Citing an example, Chong said one woman complained that her employer always nagged her for going to the toilet so often.

“She had to explain that she could not avoid it as she was pregnant,” he said, adding that the complainant also alleged she was put in “cold storage” by not being assigned the tasks she usually did before her pregnancy.

“Unable to take it any more, she resigned from her job,” Chong told a press conference here yesterday.

He said it was traumatic for pregnant women, who had worked to support their husband or family, to eventually lose their source of income.

“The department is contemplating legal action against employers who harass pregnant women under their payroll,” he said, adding that among those who had lodged complaints with his department were women who were still under probation at the work place.

Others had worked for two or more years with their employers.

Chong said he was worried that with the extension of maternity leave to 90 days for working mothers, there would be an increase of such victimisation.

Jangan ganggu emak memasak ya (English)


I wished it were a matter of simply watching Mom while she cooked. Mom is a fantastic chef, but she did not like interlopers in her kitchen. She preferred to be left alone, and we girls knew better than to bother her while she was cooking up her culinary achievements. Even Dad steered clear when she was at work. My plan to sit in the kitchen and carefully document each step as she prepared her sauce meant that I would be entering uncharted and dangerous waters.

Thursday arrived accompanied by rising anticipation. I rushed home from work, quickly changed my clothes, and sat at the kitchen table with pad and pen. "Don't worry, Mom. I'll stay out of your way. You won't even know I'm here."

Mom gave me a look that said, "I already know you're here." She set an empty pot on the stove and began chopping an onion. I watched her and asked my first question. "How big is that onion?"

"What do you mean, ‘How big?' It's an onion."

Her back was to me, but I was sure she rolled her eyes.

"I know it's an onion, but is it a small, medium, or large onion?"

She sighed. "Let's just say it's a medium one."

I wrote that down: one medium onion, finely diced.

Then she reached for the garlic, broke off a couple of cloves, and crushed them.

"How many cloves was that?"

"Two... unless of course they're large, then you only need one."

I wrote that down as well.

Mom poured some olive oil into the pot, and then added the onion and garlic.

"Wait! How much oil did you use?"

"I don't know. Enough for the pot."

I ignored the growing annoyance in her voice. "Well, how much is that?"

"It depends on the size of the pot. Just enough to coat the bottom. Use your judgment."

I didn't want to use my judgment. I wanted a recipe.

Mom emptied a can of pureed tomatoes into the blender. Then she added the blended mixture to the onions.

I grabbed the empty can and noted the size. "But why did you bother to blend tomatoes that are already pureed?"

"Because this is the way I make it. Are you here to tell me how to prepare my sauce, or to learn?"

Next, she poured one can each of tomato soup, tomato sauce, and tomato paste into the blender. I wrote down the size of each empty can when she finished.

While I wrote, Mom took a bunch of parsley and began chopping. Scooping up a handful of the chopped parsley, she moved toward the blender.

"Wait!" I jumped up and reached for her wrist. "How much parsley is that before you add it to the tomatoes?"

"A handful."

"But, Mom, how much is a handful? Your hands are smaller than mine!"

I grabbed a large measuring cup and had her empty the parsley into it, noting the amount. After blending the parsley and tomatoes, she added the mixture to the pot. I could see she was beginning to get a little rattled, but thankfully we seemed to be near the end.

"Mom, I forgot to ask. How long were the onions cooking before you added the other things?"

"Once the oil begins to bubble, simmer for about five minutes."

Then she sprinkled some oregano into the palm of her hand and walked over to the stove, only to be intercepted by me once again. I carefully emptied the contents of her hand into a measuring spoon. "Aha. Just about one teaspoon." I dashed back to my pad and wrote it down.

"That's it. Simmer the whole thing for about an hour."

"Uh... Mom? That's the second time you said ‘simmer.' Exactly what does that mean?"

She counted to ten before she answered. "It means cook over a low flame."

The sauce was simmering, and so was Mom.

I waited a few moments before venturing to ask my final question. "Are we done?"

"Yes, we're done. Now it just cooks — simmers — for an hour. There's nothing more for you to write down, so please get out of my kitchen before you drive me completely crazy!"

An hour later, we all sat down to dinner. My sister was the first to speak up. "Mom? This sauce doesn't taste like you usually make. Did you do something different?"

"Of course not. It has the same ingredients I always... wait a minute." Mom grimaced and shot me one of her patented looks. "I forgot the sugar... and the salt and pepper."

The rest of the family laughed as I shrunk down in my seat.

I learned an important lesson that day. We've now been married more than thirty years, and my very special husband has always been served a very special spaghetti sauce.

More women giving birth after 40


When it comes to changing diapers, breastfeeding and swaddling, 40 is the new 30.

A recent national report found birth rates falling in virtually every age group of women in their childbearing years — except for those between 40 and 50. The group aged 40 to 44 had its largest birth rate since 1967.

Benefiting from improvements in reproductive technology and the fact that most Americans are living longer, more women 40 and over are choosing to have children in later life, particularly after they've accomplished career goals.

That means that as the nation celebrates Mother's Day, over-40 moms are still scheduling visits with the pediatrician while some their age have become grandmothers. Yet several local over-40 moms said they'd have it no other way; the births come when they're more settled, selfless and focused on family.

Pukul anak biar berpada


KUALA LUMPUR: Ibu bapa masih mempunyai pelbagai pilihan mendidik anak termasuk memukul, namun tindakan itu tidak boleh keterlaluan sehingga mendatangkan kecederaan dan boleh diklasifikasikan sebagai penderaan.

Peguam Kanan Persekutuan Seksyen Syariah, Jabatan Peguam Negara, Mahamad Naser Disa, berkata ibu bapa perlu bijak mendidik anak bukannya mengikut emosi dan panas baran.

Menurutnya, memukul anak secara keterlaluan dan mendatangkan kecederaan boleh mengakibatkan ibu bapa terbabit didakwa dan dikenakan tindakan undang-undang.

In my daughter's eyes


In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

No milk, please: The lowdown on feeding newborns cow’s milk.

MANY Malaysian mothers do not breastfeed their newborn babies. The babies are given bottled milk at birth or within a few months after birth. The bottled milk is usually derived from cow’s milk which comprises protein, fat, sugar, vitamins and minerals mixed with water. Some babies are allergic to the proteins in cow’s milk. This occurs despite the efforts of the milk manufacturers to produce bottled milk that is as close to mother’s breast milk as possible.

It is generally accepted that about 1% to 5% of infants are allergic to the proteins in cow’s milk and its various formulations.

Letter: Daughters are a parent’s assets


EVERY mother, I guess, would hope to have a daughter primarily due to the belief that daughters would take care of their parents better.

I don’t really know how true that is.

I come from a small family and have two brothers. Being the only girl, I’m the one closest to my mum and I was my Dad’s girl when he was alive. However, my elder brother is the favourite of my parents and the younger one, as usual, is treated as the bongsu (youngest child).

My brothers and I are now in our 50s and have our own families. My elder brother migrated to the West with my mum after my father passed away. I migrated to Malaysia because of marriage and my younger brother stayed back in our home country.

At first, it was difficult for my mother to overcome her longing for her children because we couldn’t all be together to see her regularly due to financial constraints. I communicate with her through letters and phone calls. I had the opportunity to visit her in 1997 (after eight years) and then again in 2008. She managed to be reunited with my younger brother after 15 years.

Ibu Mithali (Cerpen)

PENERIMA ketiga berjalan perlahan-lahan turun dari pentas. Di lehernya, telah terkalung pingat "Ibu Misali". Tangan kanannya menggenggam erat satu sampul dan segulung sijil. Tangan kirinya pula memegang beberapa hadiah iringan.

Anaknya setia melangkah di sisi."Sekarang ...," suara pengacara majlis bergema kembali, "Tibalah kita kepada penerima anugerah "Ibu Misali" yang terakhir. Penerima ini agak lain daripada yang lain dan sungguh istimewa. Untuk itu, dipersilakan Puan Afifah Rashid naik ke pentas bersama- sama Cik Nurul Humairah, untuk tampil memperkenalkan ibunya. Dipersilakan. "Mataku tercari-cari pasangan ibu dan anak yang bakal mengambil tempat itu. Di barisan penonton paling hadapan, aku dapati seorang anak gadis berkulit hitam manis dan bertubuh tinggi lampai, sedang berusaha memujuk seorang wanita dalam lingkungan usia 60-an untuk bangun.

Just a mum?


A woman, renewing her driver's licence was asked by the woman at Registry to state her occupation.

She hesitated, uncertain how to classify herself.

'What I mean is, ' explained the woman at Registry, 'do you have a job or are you just a ...?'

'Of course I have a job,' snapped the woman. 'I'm a Mum .'

'We don't list ' Mum ' as an occupation, 'housewife' covers it,' said the recorder emphatically.

I forgot all about her story until one day I found myself in the same situation.

Shahrizat Gesa Pengajaran Kesihatan Reproduktif Disegerakan

KUALA LUMPUR: Menteri Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil menggesa agar pengajaran mengenai kesihatan reproduktif kepada pelajar sekolah berumur seawal 12 tahun disegerakan.

Beliau berkata subjek berkenaan perlu dipercepatkan kewujudannya bagi membendung gejala kelahiran dan kehamilan luar nikah yang menjurus kepada kes pembuangan bayi yang semakin meningkat kini.

"Saya minta Kementerian Pelajaran supaya mengambil berat isu ini, walaupun pada masa ini ada subjek atau pengajaran tentang kesihatan reproduktif tetapi ia tidak cukup mendalam.

"Kita mesti ajar mereka (pelajar) secara ilmiah, saintifik dan berhemah. Jadi kita minta kementerian berkenaan tingkatkan masa yang diajar untuk subjek itu," katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan kempen 'Kami Prihatin' di sini semalam.

'Kami Prihatin' merupakan inisiatif akhbar Utusan Malaysia untuk mencetuskan rasa keinsafan dan menebalkan kembali nilai kemanusiaan di kalangan masyarakat dalam usaha menangani kes penderaan kanak-kanak dan buang bayi.

Beliau berkata kementerian itu telahpun mengesyorkan modul kesihatan reproduktif ini kepada Kementerian Pelajaran, tetapi sehingga kini masih tertangguh kerana ramai yang menganggap isu itu sebagai sensitif dan tabu.

"Selalu kita lihat kes-kes kehamilan ini berlaku kepada anak-anak muda kita berumur 14, 15 tahun...jadi sebelum hormon dan biologi mereka menimbulkan masalah, mereka mesti dah tahu, jangan terlambat.

"Kita dapati ramai remaja kita tidak mengetahui tentang risiko apa yang akan berlaku jika pasangan itu membuat hubungan intim. Saya percaya kalau ramai remaja kita tahu apa akan terjadi kepada badan mereka, maka perkara seperti kehamilan luar nikah dapat dikawal," katanya. - BERNAMA

Budak maut tertelan anting-anting

REMBAU: Seorang kanak-kanak lelaki berusia empat tahun maut akibat tertelan sebentuk anting-anting di rumahnya di Taman Pedas Indah, di sini.

Dalam kejadian kira-kira jam 2 petang Rabu lalu, R Arrokiya Nathan dipercayai mati ketika dalam perjalanan ke Klinik Kesihatan Pedas, dekat sini kerana anting-anting berkenaan tersangkut sebelum mencucuk kerongkongnya.

Ketika kejadian, kanak-kanak itu dikatakan bermain dalam bilik bersama seorang adik perempuannya berusia tiga tahun, manakala ibu saudaranya berusia 30-an sedang tidur di bilik sama.


Ibu saudara kanak-kanak terbabit yang terjaga dari tidur terkejut melihat anak saudaranya batuk dan muntah darah lalu memberitahu ahli keluarga lain.


Berikutan itu, mangsa terus dikejarkan ke sebuah klinik desa berhampiran untuk mendapatkan rawatan sebelum kanak-kanak itu dirujuk ke Klinik Kesihatan Pedas dan mati ketika dalam perjalanan.


Ahli keluarga pada mulanya tidak mengetahui punca sebenar kanak-kanak itu mengalami muntah darah sehinggalah satu anting-anting ditemui dalam kerongkong mangsa.


Ketua Polis Rembau, Deputi Superintendan Mizan Md Dom berkata, mayat kanak-kanak berkenaan kemudian dibawa ke Hospital Tuanku Ja’afar Seremban (HTJS) untuk dibedah siasat bagi mengetahui punca kematiannya.


“Hasil bedah siasat mendapati kanak-kanak itu mati kerana tertelan anting-anting yang tersangkut dan mencucuk kerongkongnya.


“Polis mengklasifikasikan kes berkenaan sebagai mati mengejut (SDR) dan menolak wujudnya unsur jenayah di atas kematian kanak-kanak itu,” katanya kepada Harian Metro di sini, semalam.


Beliau berkata, polis yang menjalankan siasatan di tempat kejadian tidak menemui sebarang unsur jenayah terhadap kematian mangsa.


Menurutnya, polis menasihati ibu bapa supaya lebih berhati-hati bagi mengelak tragedi dialami kanak-kanak itu berulang pada masa akan datang.


“Ibu bapa dinasihatkan supaya menyimpan barang-barang yang berbahaya di tempat selamat bagi mengelak ia disalahgunakan sebagai alat permainan untuk anak-anak kecil mereka.


“Mereka (ibu bapa) mesti menitikberatkan aspek keselamatan dan memberikan pengawasan yang lebih terhadap anak kecil bagi mengelak kejadian sama berulang,” katanya.

Program susu sekolah ditangguh sehingga pengilang patuhi syarat

KUALA LUMPUR: Program Susu Sekolah (PSS) akan ditangguh sehingga pengilang terbabit mematuhi syarat yang ditetapkan bagi mendapatkan sijil "Hazard Critical Control Point" (HACCP), Dewan Rakyat diberitahu hari ini.

Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran, Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong, berkata satu jawatankuasa bersama telah ditubuhkan antara kementeriannya dan Kementerian Kesihatan (KKM) dan menetapkan pemerolehan sijil tersebut bagi mengelakkan berulangnya kes keracunan susu di sekolah.

"Sejak dua tahun lalu, kementerian dan KKM sudah mengadakan beberapa mesyuarat dan lakukan audit ke atas pengilang tetapi sampai hari ni pengilang masih belum buat penambahbaikan atau pengubahsuaian seperti yang disyaratkan oleh pensijilan HACCP.

"Oleh itu adalah wajar program ini ditangguhkan sementara waktu," katanya menjawab soalan Chua Tee Yong (BN-Labis) yang ingin tahu bila PSS akan disambung semula dan langkah untuk mengatasi masalah keracunan susu, di sini.

Wee juga berkata, hanya terdapat satu pengilang susu di Semenanjung Malaysia iaitu Dutch Lady dan selepas tiga pengauditan dibuat dalam tempoh dua tahun, KKM telah menghantar surat kepada Kementerian Pelajaran bahawa kilang tersebut masih belum mematuhi syarat seperti yang dijanjikan.

"Maka disebabkan itu, kita tidak dapat meneruskan program ini," katanya.

Selain pengilang, katanya kerajaan turut menitik beratkan rangkaian pengagihan susu ke sekolah termasuk cara mengangkut dan menyimpan bekalan susu yang telah diterima.
"Tiga aspek ini perlu diberi perhatian. Kalau sekolah yang besar, 'chiller' perlu dibekalkan untuk memastikan susu yang segar, bukannya susu basi dibekalkan kepada pelajar miskin," katanya. - Bernama

Kindy safety

Kindy safety
By PRIYA KULASAGARAN
educate@thestar.com.my

It is impossible to live in a state of fear, but early childhood education providers are taking greater precautionary measures to keep their premises safe.

IT is unfortunate that certain issues only seem to merit serious widespread attention after a tragedy occurs.

The recent horrific attack on three children at Tadika Sinario in Muar, Johor has sparked questions on just how safe children are in their schooling environment.

A man armed with a hammer had barged into the kindergarten and bludgeoned three six-year-olds, after attacking the kindergarten operator who was present.

While the pupils survived the ordeal, the violent episode has only worried parents abouthow they can protect their children from it.

Johor State Women, Family, Health and Community Development Committee chairman Dr Robia Kosai had earlier this week called for all kindergartens in the state to hire at least one security guard, while State police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff urged for the installation of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras.

But as an early childhood education provider in the Klang Valley quips, “No system is 100% foolproof. If some psychopath is bent on harming children, he will find a way to do so.”

Malaysian Association of Kindergartens chairman Jayawathi Perera thinks that in such unprecedented situations, parents and teachers should be careful to not play into knee-jerk solutions.

“While the Johor case was a brutal example of how twisted some individuals can be, this does not mean we should lock up our children in cages,” she says.

“We can’t live in a perpetual state of fear, because that will be equally damaging.

“The best measure is to be alert and vigilant all the time, to never let your guard down.”

She thinks that a blanket rule to enforce safety in kindergartens and preschools might not be entirely appropriate.

“The basic precautions aside, such locking up gates and employing security guards, each preschool is different and therefore each will have its own individual needs.

“This is where parents and teachers can work together in discussing the most effective solutions.”

Jayawathi adds that safety is a continuous community effort.

“We can’t just talk about the safety of children, as it also affects everyone in the neighbourhood. We need our communities to be close-knit and supportive to combat crimes like these.”

Angela Toh, the principal of Tadika and Taska Kinderland in Ipoh, says that many parents have voiced their concerns about her kindergarten’s safety precautions.

“We’ve already had in place plenty of security measures,” she says.

“This includes restricting who goes in and out of the compound and making sure that all pupils are escorted by a teacher during dismissal time.

“All our staff stay involved in maintaining the safety of the children.

“But of course, the parents’ worry is understandable, so we immediately responded by hiring a full-time security guard.”

Madeleine Kindergarten director Jeffrey Chew has even stricter procedures enforced at his kindergarten in Petaling Jaya, including CCTV cameras.

“We have one security guard each for the day and night shifts, and parents have to sign in to get a visitor’s pass before they can enter the premises,” he explains.

“If the parents don’t inform us that someone else will be picking up their children, we will not release them until we get clearance from the parents.

“Also, we have an intercom system that links all the classrooms to the main office, so that everyone will be immediately alerted if anything goes wrong.

“In the future, we hope to connect this intercom service to the nearby police station.”

He adds that he has yet to receive comments from parents questioning the safety of their children.

“This may be because before the semester begins, we request for parents to attend an orientation so that we can brief them on all our security measures.

“Having this sort of cooperation with the parents really helps us enforce our safety system.”

Parent Theva Rajendren agrees that parents should do their part to protect their children.

“Even so, this doesn’t absolve kindergarten operators from taking responsibility,” he says.

“We are entrusting our children in their care, so they should take every step necessary in ensuring their safety.

Lum Soon Heng meanwhile, is concerned by parents enrolling their children in what he deems to be “dodgy” nursery schools.

“It’s well and good to say that we must enforce security measures, but what if these kindergartens are illegal to begin with?” says the father of two toddlers.

“How will the authorities adequately monitor the security of these places when they are operating without a licence to begin with?”

Parent Fatimah Karim echoes this sentiment, but says that cost is an issue for a significant number of parents.

“Measures such as installing CCTVs and employing enough security guards will obviously be good, but are additional costs. Most parents will ultimately feel the pinch as it will be incorporated into the fees.

“I just hope that steps will be taken to ensure that every parent is able to send their children to a kindergarten or nursery that is safe.”

Doktor merasa hairan kenapa saya tidak mengerang kesakitan apabila contraction.. tidak seperti ibu2 yg lain... semasa saya dimasukkan ke wad rahim saya telah terbuka sebanyak 2cm...setelah 2jam rahim saya dah terbuka 5cm..doktor terkejut betapa cepat nye proses itu... kerana ibu yg lain ada yg sudah hampir 24jm..masih juga 3cm... bertambah hairan bila doktor menanyakan bahwa kenapa saya tidak merasa sakit.. saya cume menjawab saya makan ini...sambil menunjukkan SALINDAH... 8cm saya sudah boleh melahirkan cuma mengambil masa 10-15 minit saja...

    kini anak saya yg sulung berusia 8thn...bersekolah d sekolah cina..anak saya mengamalkan EXAMO semenjak berumur 2thn.. Alhamdulillah dia mendapat BEST STUDENT IN MATHEMATIC di sekolah tersebut...


    En Riezal, Batu Caves


    Assalamualaikum..
    bersyukur ke hadrat Allah s.w.t isteri saya telah selamat bersalin anak pertama kami secara normal pada 7 Julai 2010. Baby boy berat 3.08kg.. Saya juga ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada produk Salindah kerana sejak usia kehamilan 3 bulan, saya telah belikan set Salindah dan beri kepada isteri saya untuk mencuba. Sepanjang kehamilan isteri saya kurang mengalami sakit2 yang teruk.. ketika ingin bersalin isteri saya cuma mengambil masa 15 minit sahaja sebelum dapat melahirkan baby kami. Sekarang setelah anak saya berusia 3 hari, saya nampak tanda-tanda dia telah mula mengangkat kepalanya kepalanya sendiri dan mula menendang. Ibu dan bapa mertua saya juga hairan melihatnya..


    Puan Rosadia, Seremban

    assalamualaikum,

    Saya menggunakan set lengkap SALINDAH ketika mengandungkan anak kedua yaitu pada thn 2007, masa anak pertama tahun 2003 saya ada juga mencari SALINDAH tapi tak berjumpa masa tu mungkin belum rezaki lagi agaknya.

    Perbezaan antara anak pertama dan kedua saya amat ketara, Anak pertama saya mudah mendapat demam, kurang keyakinan diri, dan mengenal huruf pun masa umurnya 5 tahun,mempunyai perwatakan yang agak lembut dan pemalu.

    Bagi anak kedua pula ia tidak mudah mendapat demam, agak aktif ,berkeyakinan mempunyai tulang yang agak kuat, dlm usia mencecah 3 thn dia sudah boleh mengira sampai 10 dan mengenal beberapa huruf abc dan alif ba ta, mudah berkawan dan sentiasa mengingatkan kami sekeluarga membaca doa semasa makan..

    Dan untuk anak ketiga saya juga pasti menggunakan SALINDAH hari ni baru nak pergi beli, sebab kandungan dah nak masuk 12 minggu..

    tq  SALINDAH


    Puan Susie, Johor Bahru

    Salam, saya telah menggunakan set mengandung Salindah sejak saya mengandungkan anak pertama & kedua.Saya menggunakan seawal usia kandungan 3 bulan (12mggu).

    Hasilnya semasa mengandung saya tidak mudah letih dan sentiasa cergas walaupun saya perlu memandu 1 jam setengah setiap hari untuk ke pejabat. (Pergi balik 3 jam.)

    Alhamdulillah semasa melahirkan juga tidak menunggu masa yang agak lama lebih kurang 2 jam sahaja untuk kedua2 anak saya.

    Anak2 saya mempunyai kulit yang cantik dan kanak2 yg sangat aktif.IQ nya juga amat memberangsangkan.

    Semestinya saya akan menggunakan Salindah lagi sekiranya hamil anak yang seterusnya..


    Puan Dirayah Dollah

    Saya telah menggunakan set lengkap Salindah sejak dari awal kandungan (3 bln), dan saya telah selamat melahirkan anak pertama secara normal dengan berat bayi 4.3kg.

    Saya dapati anak saya lebih kuat tulangnya dan cepat dari segi pertumbuhan fizikalnya. Dia mula mengangkat kepala sejak usianya 2 hari, mula meniarap seawal 2 bln, mula tumbuh gigi di usia 4 bln dan mula duduk pada usia 6 bln. Malah pakar kanak2 mengatakan ia adalah bonus kerana mendapat anak yg cepat perkembangan fizikalnya.

    Saya pasti akan menggunakan produk ini lagi sekiranya saya diberi rezeki utk mengandung anak kedua kelak. InsyaAllah.


    Puan Yanti Mat Isa

    Assalamualaikum,

    Saya hanya mula menggunakan Salindah ketika mengandungkan anak yang ketiga. Itupun setelah diperkenalkan oleh kawan-kawan. Setelah menggunakannya, saya dapati memang ada kesannya. Semasa mengandung saya kurang loya berbanding dulu. Badan pun lebih bertenaga. Proses kelahiran juga cepat. Alahamdulillah saya dikurniakan anak yang sihat, berkulit cantik dan comel. Anak saya juga tahan daripada penyakit, misalnya susah nak demam, selsema dan sebagainya .

    Memanglah kita yang merancang dan Tuhan yang menentukan, tapi sebagai manusia biasa kita boleh berusaha ke arah kesihatan yang lebih baik. Salindah memang tak menghampakan saya dan saya akan terus menggunakannya jika saya mengandung lagi.. Insyaallah.


    Puan Ros Aslina, Sri Serdang


    Saya telah menggunakan Salindah semasa mengandung anak pertama saya dan mendapati kesan-kesan baik contohnya anak tidak kena demam kuning dan kulitnya pun cantik. Cara bersalin pula sangat mudah, hanya dengan dua kali "push" sahaja. Semasa mengandung saya terpaksa memandu seorang diri dari Serdang ke Setiawangsa setiap hari bekerja. Pemanduan dua jam (sejam pergi dan sejam balik) setiap hari bekerja tidak terasa letih langsung. Saya memang mengsyorkan produk ini kepada ibu-ibu yang mengandung.


    Puan Salbiah


    Saya adalah salah seorang pengguna Salindah ini dan anak saya yang ke tiga baru berusia 3 bulan lebih. Dari pengalaman saya ini, produk ini amat sesuailah dengan saya. Walaupun setelah mengandung 7 bulan, saya baru menggunakan produk ini (baru dapat tahu), saya dapat rasakan perbezaannya semasa mengandungkan anak pertama dan kedua (kini 2 ½ tahun dan 1 ½ tahun). Antara perbezaannya ialah :

    1 - Kurang merasa letih dan lesu, sentiasa ceria. (semasa mengandung dan selepas bersalin)
    2 - Tidak kena "cramp"
    3 - Anak tidak kena sakit kuning
    4 - Anak tidak meragam, lebih cergas.
    5 - Senang bersalin. (Berat anak saya ialah 3.85 kg dan bersalin normal - alhamdullilah)

    Tentang anak putih melepak tu bergantung pada gennya lah, kebetulan saja anak saya keluar putih dan gebu (tembam).


    Puan Wan Samihah Wan Ahmad


    Makcik husband saya menggunakan product ni dari awal pregnant hinggalah lepas bersalin. Dari apa yang dia beritahu ianya memang OK, sehingga rasa sakit bersalin tu kurang lah berbanding dengan 3 orang anak yang kesebelumnya. Bayangkan, pintu rahim dah terbuka 5 cm pun dia cakap dia OK je...tak rasa apa-apa pun.


    Puan Khasiba Taib

    Saya ada menggunakan product ni sewaktu mengandungkan anak ke tiga. Alhamdulillah...pada saya kesannya seperti :
    1 - ia mengurangkan keletihan badan semasa mengandung.
    2 - waktu nak bersalin mengambil masa yang cepat.
    3 - kulit anak sederhana cerah dan kurang ditumbuhi ruam.


    Encik Norsham Yunos


    Isteri saya ada menggunakan salindah nie sejak umur kandungan 3 bulan lagi (anak pertama). Nampaknya alhamdullilah isteri saya bersalin pun mudah. Tentang anak putih melepak tu bergantung pada gennya lah, jika emak bapak nya putih maka anaknya pun putihlah, kalau kelabu maka kelabulah......


    Reazal


    Setakat ini produk ini tidak memberikan sebarang masalah malah membantu ibu-ibu untuk bersalin terutamanya sewaktu tiba masa untuk bersalin dan seawal masa selepas bersalin. Pasti anda akan rasa perbezaannya bila mencuba produk ini. Sebab isteri saya sendiri yang menyatakan perbezaan yang dialaminya.


    Puan Noormala Che Noor, Keramat Wangsa, KL


    Saya adalah bekas pengguna SALINDAH dan ingin mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih dan tahniah di atas kejayaan produk ini. Saya telah selamat melahirkan seorang anak perempuan (3.8kg) yang sihat walafiat dan kini berusia 4 bulan. Dari pemerhatian saya, anak saya ini kuat daya tahanan diri dan punya tulang yang kuat. Kali pertama anak saya meniarap sewaktu berusia 1 bulan. Dan kini telah menunjuk tanda-tanda pertumbuhan gigi. Saya menggalakkan bakal-bakal ibu untuk mengguna produk ini. Saya juga insyallah akan mengguna SALINDAH untuk zuriat saya yang seterusnya.


    Encik Hamizat Harun


    Assalamualaikum wbt.

    Isteri saya ada menggunakan salindah nie sejak umur kandungan 3 bulan lagi (anak ketiga). Nampaknya alhamdullilah isteri saya bersalin pun mudah. Seperti yang kita tahu segalanya dari Allah, namun jika tidak berusaha mana akan dapat hasilnya. Jadi jika sekiranya isteri saya mengandung lagi, insyaallah pasti saya akan memberi isteri saya "Salindah" ini.

    Saranan saya kepada bakal ibubapa atau yang belum pernah mencubanya, agar mencuba akan produk berjenama "SALINDAH". Di sini saya juga ingin memberikan pendapat saya, kenyataan sakit bersalin itu sememangnya sakit. Sebab itulah Allah s.w.t berfirman "Syahid" bagi kaum ibu yang bersalin untuk melahirkan anak itu jika mereka-mereka ini meninggal dunia. Jadi sebagai kaum bapa, kita pun tidak boleh pun mengurangkan kesakitan yang di alami oleh kaum ibu. Tetapi, Insyaallah dengan produk salindah ini sekurang-kurangnya kita berusaha mengurangkan sedikit bebanan kesakitan kaum ibu itu. Insyaallah.
