Of Fears & Being Paranoid…


Ok I don’t normally type two entries in one day, cos I was planning to type one tonight with regards to Anugerah 2007 Finals. But I need to get something off my chest, hence this extra entry.

In my previous entry, I stated how fearful I was with regards to my daughter’s back development and that she might suffer in the long run if I were to subject her to sitting on walkers and Bumbo seats. My entry has got nothing to do with slagging off anyone for being an irresponsible parent, nor was I hinting directly on anyone. It was my own observations and personal fears based on what I heard from my mother and what happened to some of her cousins. I likened the Bumbo seat to the walker, just like one likens an eagle to a hawk in that they both come from the same category of carnivorous birds.  

Fear and a bit of paranoia overtook me over the course of time and I have to admit, I did not seek professional opinions to understand that a Bumbo seat is indeed ok in medical context. You have to remember I too am human, and not everything I say is politically correct, the be all and end all. You can choose to understand my beliefs or you can just read and move on if you disagree. I’m not a perfect parent (yet!) to shove whatever things I know into my readers’ faces and I never set out to do that. Whatever we know, we share. I guess this is what blogging is also about – Knowledge Sharing, and I certainly learnt quite a few stuff just reading other people’s experiences. I am still learning and I believe so is everybody else…

So please don’t take my previous entry as a personal attack on anyone. I was merely stating my own fears and paranoia. Don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions and cause distress on others who might have been coincidentally linked to what I was talking about, even if I was not referring to them…

P.S. Thank you for the tips, sis… Am surely gonna buy a Bumbo seat very soon now that I know it’s most definitely ok for my daughter to sit on it…

Well-known on RIA 89.7FM as a controversial and sensational critic able to invoke thought-provoking and sometimes, fiery responses from fellow listeners. Have since evolved into a distinguished blogger of reputable claim with takes on the Malay entertainment industry and football-related matters. Brutally honest and believes in only reporting the truth as I see, hear or experience it. Self-styled critic who does not mince his words and is definitely a non-conformist.
