Cake Smash

Did a cake smash shoot at home for Alyssa's 1st Birthday! It was not like any other cake smash photos I have seen online cos she totally rejected the cake I specially ordered for her. 😩

2018 Highlights

I was looking at life events column on Facebook one day and realised Joe & I are in the 4th year together now. Time flies so quickly after we're married and even more after Alyssa was born. One of the things I've failed to achieve last year was to write regularly but I'm not complaining, I think I'm naturally a stay home mum. I did pretty well didn't I? 😅

January
Leaving confinement centre is something I really looked forward to ever since I delivered. For the first week I can't stop thinking about being free from "jail" so I can go out with my baby. Coming to the end of 2nd week, oh man I really wish I could stay longer—I really love the fact I get delicious meals everyday, and few knocks on the door to signify it's dessert time. A phone call away to bring away a crying baby, to help manage and keep my EBM, sterilise my bottles, to bring me my herbal bath water... I felt like a queen!


In the first month of the year I had one of my teenage dreams fulfilled. Thank you mum & aunt for offering to take care of our little one so that we can take few hours off for Jay Chou's concert I've been dreaming about.

May
May's biggest event is none other than #GE14! For the first time in history the opposition aka PH claimed victory after winning majority parliamentary seats. And of course we went home to vote. 🤩


September
Another concert treat! Joe got free tix for Eric Chou's concert and he offered to babysit Alyssa so that I could catch the show. I dragged along ZX with me knowing he hasn't been to any concert before!


October
We finally moved in to our new apartment, phew! After going through massive nuisances with all our contractors, I'm glad everything has come to an end. I didn't get much time to really decorate yet with an active baby around so there isn't any particular space or corner I'm in love with YET but as usual, I love being at living hall the most! Neighbours here are friendlier as there are more families than working expats here compared to our old place, this being one of the reasons we really like it here the first time we came for a look.

December
We celebrated Alyssa's 1st Birthday at home! 😭 Took so many pictures and we were really thankful for our guests who took their time to come all the way here just to share this special moment with us.

In the past year, I made the efforts to travel as often as I can so that I wouldn't feel being tied up as a stay home mum. As much as I miss those days when there's just the two of us, it's all about making memories as a family of 3 now.

Here We Go Again

We made a spontaneous trip to Singapore last month, just few days after we moved in(finally!) for a weekend to meet my SIL and SW, it's just so great we got to spend time together. We also went to the zoo, which was something I really looked forward to but they were having company events for families so it was really packed.

Lunch @ Haji Lane

I guess the (most unexpected) highlight of the trip has got to be Mamma Mia Musical. I happened to find out on the newspaper when I was just flipping through at the hotel lobby. I had been telling Joe how awesome it was and I would pay for the front row next time because it would be totally worth it. Isn't this destined to be?! That I get to watch it again? So without a doubt, off we went! Upon arriving at the theatre entrance, most guests are decently dressed for the occasion, except for us. We went in with Aly of course, and we have to keep her busy with snacks or toys at all time so she wouldn't make a sound, which is entirely impossible.

When the show began, she started to lose her patience and I was then invited to leave the hall by an old lady who was in charged of my section. I'm really thankful for this lady as she didn't just walk away but stayed by my side to cheer me up. I felt so much better talking to her. About 15 mins later Joe reach out to me, he knew I really wanted this, so I passed over baby to him and went back inside for the show while he watched it outside on screen.


I just remembered about wanting to compliment this old lady to Sands Theatre thru email but goddamnit I forgot her name by now. And Joe, thanks for making my dream comes true, you've done it again! ♡

Blue Sky Therapy


離正式搬家的日子真的不遠了,WHAT A RELIEF! 可是人生就是這麼的諷刺,當我們越接近入伙的日子,平时被忽略的窗外风景显得特別的美,特別的藍。Now I'm super reluctant to leave this place! 以後的家望過去對面,看到的會是隱隱約約的人影,或者是鄰居在陽台各種活動。


只能安慰自己說,以後將會有這個不錯的夕陽美景為每一天完美的落幕。每天晚上睡眠時間不會再聽到各式各樣的車子在高速公路上飆車的噪音。(上個禮拜深夜4點發生的3死7傷大車禍,那幾聲巨響讓我到現在還心有餘悸。我擔心很久的事情竟然在我搬家前發生了😰)

热 • 浪岛


闊別7年重遊熱浪島,有种既熟悉又陌生的感觉,走過的每一個腳步彷彿聽到笑声連連的回憶點滴。記得20歲出頭的那幾年,熱浪島成了年度旅行的必去之地。以前還可以在這沙灘給來回走幾圈,但現在體魄確實不如從前,身上也多了個一包米重の娃,加上太陽先生不是普通的猛烈,在下真的有心無力。
