See you, July

Time flew by in a blink of an eye, today marks the last day of my favourite month.

What a huge relief that our wedding is finally over. Nothing really changes though. We have been staying together for almost 2 years. Basically everything is going well as how it's planned earlier, which includes being successfully conceived.

Yes you heard it right! There's a bun in the oven!

Let's just leave the wedding topic aside. The truth is.. I have been too busy being pregnant. I felt horrible for the first few months until recently.. my morning sickness just got better, my fatigue has slowly gone away, my nausea and dizziness are still unpredictable but I've got a way with it. I'm definitely hormonal(even if I'm unpregnant haha) and became very anti-social. I'm trying to feel better about these changes in my body and be optimistic about it.

With all that being said, I can finally skip my afternoon naps now and not feel like an useless person. I can go for grocery shopping and come home to prepare dinner for Joe. I can even take Tofu out for evening walks. I'm not moody to blog/share too. What a blessing! It's just so happy to think about I can finally act like a normal person. T_T Sometimes I don't even remember I have a life growing inside of me.

I have also been attending hypnobirthing classes with Joe to get a better understanding about birth and learn about the effective ways to natural birth, to understand that my body was made to give birth to little humans and most of all, to overcome my fear. After only 2 classes I'm starting to look forward to meet this little cupcake in my tummy and quite eager to experience labour.

I went for a detailed scan the other day and I was completely amazed by everything an ultrasound can show. Seeing the baby making moves and kicking is just something really amazing to look at even I can't feel it yet. For the most part, it was a huge relief to finally learn that my little cupcake is all healthy and growing stronger each day.

Can't wait to meet my gynae next month already!

Life Lately

Red Riding Hood @ Fluffed Cafe  Latte @ Fluffed Cafe

Can't believe it's mid March already. It's 2 weeks til our long waited Korea trip(I think we have waited for a year and more) while counting down to another 3 months plus til our big day. I have been so busy lately and I want to believe that it's a good thing. Ever since I come back from Saigon I haven't really got time to just sit down and refresh my memory.

The first 2 months of the year have been insane. We got even more busy since the day we brought home our adorable furkid whom we named Tofu. While being frustrated and stressed out with wedding preps, we got to learn to be patient and train her. She changed our lives completely and also in many ways. We are both new parent so it's so challenging yet so fun to train this lil girl. Most of all we're just so glad that she became a part of our family and brought so much joy to us more than we could ever imagine. This love and dedication is way out of my expectation, to the extent I think I may have love Joe lesser now.. Ha!

We have also started hunting for a bigger living space as we put family planning into our consideration. I still remembered how such a nightmare it was to move houses twice in a year. Now to think about packing stuff, even with our little studio apartment, it's still the scariest thing I want to refrain from thinking.

The Dorm

Throwback to New Year's Eve, I was already laying on top of bunk bed at 10pm ready to call it a day. I was too tired both physically and mentally. This spontaneous getaway was meant for me to take a break and refresh my mind for the beginning of the year. But it turned out that my brain still couldn't stop thinking about everything and I miss home more than I could imagine.

I don't usually meet Asians in the same dorm but this time around we have 3—one from Malaysia and two from our neighbourhood country Singapore! It was such a shame I didn't get to talk and share so much with them as I'm in anti-social mode most of the time, struggling with myself.

My ideal NYE night started off with a good shower after a (really) long day of walking. Then I enjoyed my quiet time in bed watching videos over my tab with my earphones on while getting myself comfortable in my PJs where the fresh laundry scent still lingers around. My designated bed was facing the window where I got to see what's happening outside the street. The rooftop party was happening since evening and it's getting louder as it's getting late. It did not bother me much.

I was wide awake until 4 before I can finally fall asleep. Few hours later I woke up for breakfast and continue to explore as it will be my last day here before catching the night flight home.

So long Saigon, thank you for the perfect weather 3 days continuously. Thank you for making it so easy to explore places on foot. I will see you when I see you.

這一年來不算有很大突破,可是生活中卻發生了很值得記錄的大小事:例如搬新家、在潤年的29號給刺了個MATCHING TATTOO、告訴雙方家長我們要結婚了,開始了籌備婚禮的節奏、生日旅行期間意外地被補上了求婚、然後於上個月在親朋好友的見證下完成了註冊手續,成為合法夫妻、買了部新車取代為我們家服務了15年的阿ENG(T__T)⋯⋯去了好多地方走走和旅行、也去了好多的演唱會:RICHARD MARX、鄭秀文、張敬軒、五月天(就差我杰倫哥了,因為放票那天我還在環島嗚嗚)



後來也持續了「一年一部機」的習俗,幾個月前敗了部舊底片機OLYMPUS XA1來玩玩。(心虛中)因為希望三個月內能成功敗下那夢寐以求的微單寶貝回家玩。相機控的掙扎,應該就只有好攝之徒才能明白。加上今年壞了兩個不怎麼便宜的腳架,應該是時候忍痛投資品質好一點的旅行腳架了吧?

就這樣,對我來說算是很不錯的突破,至少實踐了些事,絕對是一個好的開始。今年將會是很忙碌的一年,所以不會定下什麼目標,一切 #順琪自燃(很有梗的說)。當然希望能夠和去年一樣,繼續做自己想要和喜歡做的事情;也希望自己可以一直保持著逆來順受的心態,見招拆招。💃
