Breastfeeding - It's Difficult To Be A Woman

Breastfeeding as Enlightenment

Breastfeeding for me is an enlightenment. Breastfeeding is a "source of thoughts", as quoted in Breastwork (Bartlett 2005 pp. 21-22)

"The bosom" is regarded as the seat of thoughts and feeling. ... Lactating breasts become fertile grounds of wisdom, active organs producing food for the mind as well as the body.

Noe Indi and Rani as Actors

The Breastfeeding Mothers Support Group Singapore assigned me to take part in a documentary film program on Breastfeeding. Not that I have a beautiful actress's face, heck, I never even use lipstick in my daily life! I was assigned because I had experienced many problems related to breastfeeding during the first few weeks of Noe's life. So in this documentary I had to share my experience to overcome those problems.

So, last weekend the crews from megamedia (Hazel, Shereen and another lady which I forgot the name) came to my house to do a shooting. It was semi-scripted with interview segments. I had to reenact the situation when I had mastitis. It was real fun!

Prophet Muhammad, our Ancestor

Last year, we began creating family tree in the Wiki-based genealogy site, Rodovid. At that time, we discovered that both Indi and I were descendant of Ken Arok, and we shared the same ancestry up to Bhre Kertabumi (Brawijaya V)

Yesterday I got more information with regards to our ancestry. It turned out that we're descendants of Prophet Muhammad, 41 generations apart. Now that does not mean that we're pious or good religious people. But it shed a light that possibly many Javanese people are descendant of Prophet Muhammad.

How did it happen? First, let me just share with you my methodology in mapping our family history. It's actually pretty simple, based on available data, I plotted them into Rodovid Website

  • First, I plotted my ancestry up to Sultan Agung, 11 generations before me. The data is credible, because it is a certified family tree published by the Jogjakarta Sultanate. Solo Sultanate also have similar family tree. We can make the database richer if you can plot your family tree if you have on, or whatever genealogy information you have.
  • Secondly, I found Babad Jawa Versi Mangkunegaran online, which traced the lineage of Javanese Kings, Queens, and Princes, up to Ken Arok and Tunggul Ametung. This resulted in a family tree that I put here almost one year ago
  • Thirdly, last year, I googled genealogy information of Wali Sanga and particularly Sunan Ampel. This gives additional information on the Javanese family tree during Raden Patah era, in which intermarriage with the Muslims started to happen. Last year I could only traced the lineage up to Maulana Malik Ibrahim
  • In the mean time, Indi's genealogy information is added based on information available in the book Komat Kamit Selo Soemardjan, that mentioned his ancestry up to Sultan Demak. This information was also plotted
  • This year, I just saw an update in the Wikipedia page of Sunan Ampel. New information of Sunan Ampel's lineage is added, with ancestry information up to Husayn, the son of Ali bin Abi Thalib and Fatimah Az-Zahra. So I plotted this information.
  • It turned out that somebody else had already plotted genealogy information of Prophet Muhammad, so what I do is just link my plotted family tree into this family tree. This resulted into a colossal family tree that spans 59 generations, from third century BC up to today.

Ikea discourages the use of plastic bags?

Indi went to Ikea Alexandra with Noe yesterday to buy tent for Noe's playhouse. We knew that Ikea in Singapore had just adopted the policy of discouraging the use of plastic bags, and we truly support it, to minimise waste!
