putrajaya FPP

I recently had baby delivery in Putrajaya Hospital FPP (full paying customer) program whereby it is government hospital, but by paying a reasonably cheap amount, you get to have baby delivered via specialist doctor of your choice in the hospital. In Putrajaya, there is only 3 doctor you can choose: Dr Hazim(head of dept), Dr Azim and a Malay lady doctor. I went on a Friday afternoon when they have a session for all who want to join this program to book your doctor and to be brief on the charges etc. I went to Friday session not knowing which doctor are avail for choosing nor which doctor I want. At the end, i chose Dr Hazim solely cos overhearing ppl attending the Friday session say Dr Azim like to propose Caesarean.

They did proposed caesarean due to my age(close to 40) and also cause not have baby for long time after married(maybe >2-3 years consider long for them?). Anyway I request to try vaginal birth due to I not have any health issue(gestational diabetes etc) but only my advancing age, and thank God bb come out 8hours after induced, which is really fast I think for first bb.

Total delivery fee for vaginal birthday(with vacuum) with 2 night stay, ie 1 day prior delivery and 1 day post delivery: 3k.

My bb did stayed in special care nursery (SCN) for 5 days after birth due to some issue and had to be administered 5 days antibiotics, and that is under government, not FPP, for only <RM100. The SCN is very well equip, clean and pleasant environment, they are many baby inside, maybe ~ 30+ visiting permit for either mother or father at a time at visiting hours(afternoon/dinner time).

Overall, my experience is not bad, one of the reason I go putrajaya for delivery is due to many good comments on FPP program, and don’t have to be “slaughtered” in private due to my age la… BLA BLA…  😀

putrajaya FPP

The wait for room to stay on day prior to induction/labour is quite long and tiring, we went very early morning and can’t recall but I think 3/4pm only gotten a room. I bought a lot for eating from their canteen while waiting for them in hospital for their callback once room available, prob ate lots due to tired, suspect I gain 2 kg from eating that day lol… My weight on delivery day was 84kg, weight before pregnant was 64kg. Now 74kg with bb is 11 months. Still fat

They is a visiting hours. My hub stayed with me (after delivery) as managed to get the more expensive room(~RM300). Prior to delivery, have to stay my own as not able to get the executive room. I was alone in 3 bedded room, nice not have to share, but the room is freezing and no way to lower the Aircon as it is centralized air con

Recipe: Basque cheesecake

i have tried a few recipe, and below yield satisfactory yummy cheesecake

Basque cheesecake, 7″ round, very nice, based on foodandwine.com version of the recipe, nice goey centre which still hold its shape

500g cream cheese

120g sugar (ori recipe used 163g)

2.9 large eggs + half egg yolk, I used 163g-168g egg liquid(slightly more than 3 egg)

235g heavy whipping cream(tried ok 145g+40g milk)

1 TBSP + 1 tsp (11g) cake flour

half teaspoon vanilla extract

1. scrunch baking paper into ball, then only fit into baking pan

2. Use spatula to mix cream cheese+sugar+flour, so that sugar don’t fly all over later. Must mix flour at this stage, hard to be mixed later

3. Mix in egg with hand mixer, then mix in cream with spatula(to prevent air bubble)

4. b4 baking, tap on counter to remove air

5. Bake in the TOP tier of oven, 230C 30min till side is just set and centre in “”jiggly””. Bake 30 minute

Note:

  • No need salt, adding salt sometimes too salty, cos normally cheese already got some salty taste
  • Remember bake in TOP rack of the oven to get that burnt look. I forgot once and so hard to achieve that burnt caramel look and ar the end bake it a bit too long causing inside don’t have goey centre
  • normal flour is fine, no need pastry flour cos using so little
  • my recipe is scaled down for 7″ inch round pan, cos it is just hub and I eating, this cake pan portion can make 5-6 very good sized cake slice
  • tried 100g sugar is not sweet enough. I don’t like too sweet stuff, but this cake does need some sweetness, I used 120g sugar(scaled down from original 160g) whichtaste just nice, not too sweet

above scrunch up the baking paper and pulling it apart so the pate reach every book of the baking pan

Above is mixing cream cheese with sugar and flour using spatula, no mixer please unless you want flour and sugar all over your counter top. This step is game changer for me, sugar no longer fly everywhere

above is cream cheese + sugar + flour + vanilla all mixed well, ie flour and sugar no longer will fly 😀 you can then use hand mixer to mix it more well blendes

i like to use spatula to just mix in the heavy cream, no need mixer

Ibasque cheesecake

Pour into mould, and tap it as much as you can to remove air bubble

basque cheesecake

bake for 30 minutes in highest temperature for your oven, I think my Breville oven is 220C. Remember bake on TOP rack

basque cheesecake

cakey side with goey centre. You need that contrast for the tastiest basque cheesecake. Made this multiple times. Tatura cream cheese works well, I tried Bakewith yen Conapole cream cheese not so nice.

i tried some of below recipe, and some comment I have as below. Basically first and 4th recipe not nice, 2nd & 3rd recipe not yet tried

Recipe 1:

NotGoodhttps://norecipes.com/burnt-basque-cheesecake/ used conapole cream cheese, lots of creamy centre due to high whipped cream content. Nice if you like very creamy throughout, prefer foodandwine cakey side and creamy centre
350 grams cream cheese (cold)
154g sugar, try 120g
3 large eggs (cold), 147g
370g heavy cream
23g cake flour
0.8 teaspoon vanilla extract


Recipe 2:
*https://www.spatuladesserts.com/easy-basque-burnt-cheesecake-recipe/, tried, ok only as flour not mixed well, need try again
500g cream cheese
167g sugar, try 120g, I used 110g, sweet enough
3.3 Eggs room temp, 162g
250g Heavy Cream room temp, 36% fat. I used 170g cream + 80g milk
25g Pastry flour


Recipe 3:
*https://cookieandkate.com/basque-cheesecake-recipe/
500g cream cheese, at room temp
83g to 165g sugar, try 120g
3.3 large eggs, 162g
265g heavy cream, divided
0.55 teaspoon vanilla extract
16g cake flour (1.9 TBSP)
0.25 teaspoon fine salt 


Recipe 4:
NotGoodKAF basque cheese cake, 30min, more goeey centre than foodandwine, prefer foodandwine’s recipe which has more structure on the side prob due to flour. I am less fan of this recipe without flour
500g cream cheese, sub some with butter if not enough cheese
146g granulated sugar(lower already among many recipe, tried 100g not sweet, try 120)
183g (~3-4 large eggs)
125g heavy cream
(optional) half tsp vanilla/vanilla bean
(optional)0.25 tsp salt, 0.4 tsp too salty

Aloft KL Sentral

Room size is 33m3/355 sqf feels much much more smaller than Alila at 38m3/409 sqf.

If we are to stay in this hotel next time, will opt for bigger room size

Their breakfast are quite good, los of variety and yummy(nasi lemak, hash brown, chesses, pain au chocolate etc). Only thing is no fresh fruit juice avail

Alila bangsar staycation, December 2023

Alila Bangsar hotel

Had a staycation in Alila Hotel with hub and baby in tow. The room is very spacious and the bed feels really bigger than the usual king bed. Room size according to their website is 409 square feet/38 square meters. Love our stay here, only cons i would say there is no shopping mall outside for strolls and it takes 3 lift ride to get from car to room. First one from car to ground floour, then ground floor to check in counter on 41st floor, then another lift to get to room on floor 35-40. But given all these cons, i will consider to stay again due to spacious and well design room, free snack on lobby of each room floor(murukku, kerepek, coffee).

Their pool open till quite late, not the usual 7pm, but very dark so a bit scary when I swam there at night.

Santorini Confinement Centre, Sri Petaling

Before given birth to baby mid this year, I have went to research few centres and below are notes and thoughts I have on them. Overall i chose Santorini because of location is nearby my house, and also price is not too expensive, my package is 14k. Only thing I would advice is to expect to pay extra (~RM180 per session) for lactation massage/service if you need one, cos they will refer you to Love Latch if you have lactation issue like engorgement, blocked duct etc.

santorini has good camera placement to view your baby, there is camera which face your baby bed, another which view the bathing area, and another which view the whole baby room where you can see your baby when the nurse feed them.

Garden Gem, Petaling Jaya

Room is the nicest among all the confinement centre I been, very spacious, full of natural light. One of my friend love it there, they have inhouse lactation specialist which can be a major plus

~15.5k and above

2 weeks once doctor visit

Need pay 30% deposit

Luna confinement, Central Residence, Sungei Besi highway 

I quite like Luna as well, the price is reasonable, can’t remember, I think around 13k as well, but 1 main draw back is there is no natural light in whole centre. The room has no window for sunlight!

Has 2 block

For main block: 12 baby 2nd floor, 10 baby 1st floor

1 nurse 3 baby(all the centre will say this ratio)

2nd block 2 floor (7 baby + 7 baby)

Has in house jaundice treatment, Rm120/hr

10am-7pm visiting hour

Provide 80 sanitary pad

Uses Huggies airsoft (Santorini also uses this)

3k deposit, 50% pct (rm300 admin)

Tues 2pm-6pm lactation specialist visit

Olive Dove, Bangsar South. I don’t like this centre, the person who showed me around really feels like sales person and not the motherly caring type 😀 the place feels huge and cold. I don’t feel this suitable for first time mum. However if you not first time mum, this can be a good choice as the room is like a hotel room which is quite big and with balcony! Just remember to ask for room facing morning sun otherwise it will very hot. I don’t like their baby room as it is not entirely viewable from outside. Santorin’s one is much better and fully viewable from camera and also when you walk by. This centre is cheapest among the few I mentioned here, I think got 11.5k when I asked

Huggies diaper

Doctor once a week(HKL)

Complimentary MAM bottle(Santorini also free 1 MAM bottle)

Deposit 3.5k (admin 300)

Below are the food I had in Santorini confinement centre in mid this year. Their food are mostly home cooked, don’t have bought pau, processed sausage etc. the most processed food I think are spaghetti sauce(cream/tomato) which I had few times for breakfast

Dessert in Santorini centre: the most look forward as their dessert are made in-house and very yummy

Above is pumpkin kuih I think, first meal I had when I check in, very yumm
