Fook (Fu) Cross Stitch for Valerie Lee, the Confinement Lady

Valerie, my confinement lady whom I engaged from Peiling Confinement Services Center. My experience with Peiling was a nightmare. My husband and I have a big fight with Peiling staff just a day before I am going for Cesarean. We went to the center to check out who is going to be my confinement lady. Guess what, the staff told me that they are not able to tell me whom my confinement lady is and I don't need to know who she is. They told me this is the company 'policy'. Can you believe, as a customer (I am paying RM5000 for the services) I do not have the right to choose who to be my confinement lady nor to even know her name until the day when I pick her up from the center. Gosh!

Blessing in disguise, Valerie, she is hardworking, kind, responsible, quick action. I don't even need to go to kitchen at all. Hah... I am being served like a queen :)

Look, she even potty train my baby at 1 week old.

Without her help, I don't think I can finish my cross stitch (for Dr Ng) within a short 2 weeks, phew...

She loves my cross stitch very much. So I offer to stitch her something. She request for a 'Fook' (Luck), immediately I design my every own pattern and finish it within a week.

My new born - Seven Si Janeway

Finally, mission accomplished!

Our sweet baby girl was born on 17 01 09. As usual, a 'crazy' Star Trek fan like my husband surely named his children with Star Trek characters name :) My first boy, we named him Riker Si Tee Kirk (named after Commander Riker and Captain Kirk) from Star Trek Next Generation. Obviously, my daughter, will equally have her name named after Star Trek, hah ... Seven Si Janeway (named after Seven of Nine and Captain Janeway in Star Trek Voyager).

If you notice the date of birth; 17 01, the official registration number of Starship NCC1701.

We thank God for this wonderful gift. Of course with the help of my Gynea, Dr Ng Soon Pheng, I have successfully delivered Seven with no complication, though Seven only born on 36 weeks, but she is perfectly healthy.

I was thinking what to give to Dr Ng as a token of appreciation. The first thing came to my mind is Cross Stitch. Ya, why don't I stitch something for Dr Ng. So, right after I discharged from hospital (after 3 days admitted), immediately I start my cross stitch project, and have it finished within 2 weeks.

And so happened it was Dr Ng birthday.
