16 Nov 08: IBW08 Walk Penang

Im a bit nervous with ibw walk at qb mall coz I totally forgot the penang marathon bridge run will be held (start/finish) at qb mall as well. Several roads will be closed and sure the parking space would be packed.

 

 

But im totally wrong. The road is clear and the parking space is more clear hehehehe. Since anis woke uplate,I manage to go there on 11 am. We promised to meet near coffe bean on 10.30am. when I arrive, all of them are ready to start the walk. Everyone are so ‘bersemangat”.

 

We wait for a while for other members to come but after half and hour of chit chatting among us, we decide to start off. We start the walk from coffee bean at north zone towards poslaju at south zone.

 

While we are walking , sure we got some attention but nobody dare to approach us. Hahahaha. We also not dare to approach people as we dun have any permission to hold any formal gathering in qb mall.

 

It was a happy moment for us. We discuss about different carriers. We chi chat aout our children being wear. Evethough it’s a sleepy time for this babies (noon), these babies didn’t fussy at all. They being so contented im the sling till they sleepy soundly.. it just the mother who very kepoh with each other. So excited being walking in the group. No more people dare to call us bibik becoz we are not alone.

From the poslaju, we take an escaloator to another floor.what a breeze taking an escalator without being worried if the baby would fall from the stroller. That what worries me evrytime I saw a stroller being push down/up towards escalator.

The we walk straight to jusco baby department. To promote babywearing since there would be lots of mother and fathers overthere. so far no response. People are just looking at us with lots of questions on their face but not dare to ask us. We also not dare to entertain them. . hahahaha

From jusco baby department, we go having a lunch at swensons. Very meriah with baby, mommies and daddies. It just a very great time to have this bw awareness walk. We should do this again.

Celebrate Babywearing!

It is International Babywearing Week this week and the last Penang Gathering on Nov 8 was just simply to Celebrate Babywearing!

The feast…

The team… my little one was indeed singing “Happy Birthday” ;p

Sadly, the Penang team was missing Shida on that day 😦

It was a fun gathering and above all, it attracted some new participants from the launch of the IBW08 launch at the Little Penang Street Market. And, who is to say, after this gathering, that only Moms would wear their babies?

From the exposure in the papers and media (thanks to his wife putting him on the Babywearing Show), Daddy here is now a pro with the Beco and is all hands-on and glad to show off his skills with it 😉

And, aren’t we glad that a confinement lady and a babysitter made it to our gathering to learn up how they can wear the little ones in their care while they attend to their chores 😀

And, me, baby-less, is always trying to grab the opportunity to show off the different ways and methods with someone’s baby ;p Here’s the long-forgotten two-pouch method:

Penang Babywearing Meet July 2008

Vatanai

Vatanai

July 2008’s Malaysian Babywearers in Penang had our Eyes on Simple Pieces of Cloth.

It was great for us all that Aizura is back from the States, and was able to share with us her carriers and wrapping techniques. We had a huge feast on carriers 😉 Beco, kozy, Girasol, Didymos, Vatanai… just to name a few…

This particular meeting saw more than 25 attendees and more little ones running around than ever.

As the topic was on simple pieces of cloth, we focused on tying that particular piece of cloth… any cloth… one shoulder, two shoulders… wrapping etc. with the main focus on wrapping. For this session, we demo and worked on:

  • Tying one-shoulder selendang/kain batik
  • Front Wrap Cross Carry
  • Front Cross Carry
  • Rucksack Back Carry Tibetan Tie
  • Hip Cross Carry

Go youtub-ing and find your way to the many ways to tie that piece of cloth… Better still, come to our next meeting!

As usual, the meet ended with potluck (yummy yummy) light tea and lots and lots of mingling 😀
