5km Fun Walk; Asthma Malaysia x World Lung Day 2022

 

25 September 2022 is World Lung Day for health advocacy to take action and promote better lung health globally with the focus on saying no to tobacco, protecting people through vaccination, breathing clean air, take regular physical exercise. 

In conjunction with World Lung Day, Asthma Malaysia organized a Fun Walk 5km at Taman Botani Negara, Shah Alam. Asthma Malaysia is a non-profitable organization with the mission 
  • to serve as a credible resource on asthma 
  • to raise awareness of the best standards of care
  • to empower patients in the management of their asthma
Asthma Malaysia's vision is to be the leading portal for asthma with a view to creating more informed and empowered patients. They aim to ensure that asthma care in Malaysia is equal to the best in the world with a view to reducing the suffering and deaths associated with it. They intend to evolve and proactively engage in research and promotional campaigns to increase awareness of asthma in Malaysia.



The day started with heavy rain and then became slowly making everyone anxious in the first place. While YB Khairy (Minister of Health Malaysia) and Dr Helmy (Cofounder of Asthma Malaysia and Consultant Respiratory Physicians) joined in the walk too.



Fun Walk with my family. I'm glad my baby is joining us and my mum made it her first 5km as a cancer patient. Let's create more memories.



Completed a 5km walk and received a cute glass medal. It's a happy family day. While resting and eating the day continue with a lucky draw, memorandum, and health talk.

For your information, The Generational End Game Bill aims to ban smoking for those born from 2007 onwards. It's a huge game changer when referring to a section of the Control of Tobacco Products and Smoking Bill 2022.

The above is in line with the Global Initiative for Asthma, a World Health Organization collaborative organization founded in 1993 to increase global awareness of asthma. Understanding asthma cannot be cured, it may be managed to lessen and avoid asthma attacks.

How to Self Care without Selfish; Oh La La Event

Being a new mum recently, my baby is 7 months now, and I'm no more feeling being myself is my priority. I also feel hard because of body changes. I know I need to gain back my strength again to face my new chapter of life, as a full-time working woman, a new mum juggling with the little ones and also hustling at the same time from home based. I now have a more purposeful life and a busy schedule ahead.

In order for me to continue playing each role, I need to take care of myself properly. Just like a car you need to service it from time to time. Sometimes I feel mum's guilt when I need to take care of myself first. I know I cannot be selfish and grateful I can get support from my dear husband and family members.

Last weekend was a self-care day, an Oh La La event organized by Tammy for the women's community. I'm very happy to be invited and to see everyone again after 2 years of movement restriction order. This is the time when I get to play dress-up and take a moment for myself.

Hands free while walking in the park. Also as baby is growing, my hands is tired to carry baby all the time. Sometime I'm using it in the house too to comfort my baby.

Postnatal Care with Mamaway Support Belly Band

About 3 weeks ago I just gone thru a new life experience delivering my first baby. Recalling back when I didn't expect that Covid hit my family members and automatically I became close contact. The worries started and not long, baby also started to show time. Well plan B executed, landed at government hospital for labour with strict Covid measures, quarantine life although I'm negative, baby isolated until the discharge time only I get to see him. He cried, I cried too but I'm grateful we both are well.

Currently I'm doing my confinement at a postnatal care center. Recovery from wound, pain and emotion take times. While at the same times, I need to adjust my new life schedule and I'm still working on it. Thankfully my family and friends are there to support me.

Talking about support, let's see a postnatal recovery and support belly band from Mamaway. Most mummy will talk about how to reduce postnatal belly and effectively. Either consume internally or wearing externally or both works. The main treatment is to reduce uterus size within 6 weeks recovery period, tighten abdominal muscle separation to get back in shape and also reduce back pain.



Mamaway postnatal belly band made from nano bamboo in Taiwan. It has anti bacterial, anti odour and far infrared rays. Materials is legit stretchable and look breathable. Sewing is neat and strong. First hand look it feel good quality and durable.




Wearing instructions is very easy. Wear on clothes. Band is narrow at the top and wide at the bottom. Align the bottom edge to the lowest point of the pelvis and fasten the velcro. Use the secondary straps to target problem areas or create an immediate waistline. Adjust your own tightness for compression. There's no need to get other people to help you like 'bekung' type.



My verdict:- after wearing it for a few weeks, it works as it said. It's stretchable, breathable and comfortable to wear long hours. My Dr did palpation on my abdomen to locate my uterus height. She is surprised that my uterus has reduced. I guess I'm SVD so I recover sooner compare to C-sec mom. But don't worry C-sec mom also can wear it after your wound inspection and recommendation by Dr.

After many wears, the velcro tape is still strong however the band fiber started to wear off while it's still feel durable. I like to wear it during day time to support my back during nursing. Up to now the belly band doesn't easily look dirty or smelly as of the bamboo material. Also it's easy to clean using fabrics spray or hand wash if needed. 

Hopefully my uterus will recover completely, belly look less bulging, get my waistline shape back, weight reduced, also healthy baby, happy mom. Too much wishing but grateful.

Mamaway postnatal recovery and support belly band has size from S-M (100cm) or L-XL (115cm). Price at RM 380 RM 330.
