Travelling with a belly

Singapore
Singapore

Last year seems to be all about wedding and pregnancy, gives me shivers just to think of these keywords(!). I regretted not taking more photos during with my belly though, as I spent most times of the last pregnancy being worried about what kind of unfortunate events could possibly happen. 😑 Thank God for these not-so-meaningless photos that almost left forgotten, a good reminder that my 2017 wasn't so terrible because I actually travelled to few places, it's not that bad afterall.

Around a year ago, I was in my early third trimester when all the morning sicknesses and loss of appetite have far gone, I decided to tag along my parents and their friends to Singapore. It was a pretty relaxing trip. The best part was I don't even have to plan anything, just have to pack my bag and fly. It's kind of like a last minute thing. Our itinerary wasn't so packed, we even managed to meet up SW's family before we set off to Batam the next morning.

So surprised to find temples all over Batam. We did not explore the beach side this time and spent the whole day in town for foods, window shopping and massage. And that heavenly massage we all enjoyed after early dinner, was something I would go back to(how I wish I can go back again the next day just before we leave!) The fact that I was suffering for muscle & joint pain for a while from my growing belly, I get rejected by all massage centres in Malaysia just because I was pregnant. So this masseur easily done a good job.

P/s: I had a brief memory about having some temper tantrums drama with my dad on our last night but I couldn't remember the whole story—what when how and why. But well, I bet he doesn't remember a thing either.

One Fine Day

Baby Boss
She'll always be fine with snacks.

Baby Boss
..or Pinkfong videos!

It's hard to me to have my camera with me now when I have a diaper bag and a baby to carry most of the time. Last week I went out for quick lunch nearby where I can also do my grocery next door. Never thought it would be a nice place to take photos because the surrounding was all full length glass windows that brings in ample natural light. I truly enjoy this moment, with camera in hand and no one else to disturb. P/S: I actually play videos for baby so she could leave me in peace while I'm trying to work on the camera settings LOL judge me however you want ok? 😆

I guess she's not fond of the veggies section.

Now she can no longer fits into my favourite romper from Uniqlo! 😭

Happy 61st Independence Day, Malaysia!

National Day #malaysiabaru

Obviously it would be difficult for us to go all the way to Putrajaya for the national day parade(sources suggested we should reach before 7AM to avoid massive traffic!) so I made us another plan—which is to dress up for photos at Dataran Merdeka instead. KL has always been a favourite for street photography. And boy I can't believe how much it has changed, I used to be around here so often. It's so tourist-friendly(even for the locals) now with road signs everywhere that it's possible to explore KL city just by walking. We took advantage of the LRT right beside our condo and traveled to Masjid Jamek where our short KL street tour began.

FYI it was her first time being exposed to grasses and she's not afraid at all! Making a fuss out of it was because she lost patience for being away from me who's busy setting up the camera and tripod 😒

The weather was super nice to us as well! It was hot and humid but bearable because it's also cloudy from time to time. We have absolutely no meal plans as my main intention was to take photos before the sun rises above us. We made our move to Lim Kee Cafe because it's the only nearer place I could think of and I totally lost track of the hippest cafes in town. What I didn't expect was they serve only toast and half boiled eggs! 😩 We then Grab our way to KLCC to have a proper lunch before we go home by LRT.

I doubted myself if I was making the right plan. I felt bad for having to wake Joe up early on his day off. So at the end of the day I spoke to him, it surprised me when he said he would never come here any other day if it weren't for a day as special as this year's National Day so it's actually good that we made it happen. However I got a little upset & panic with the tripod set up & camera settings earlier, and came home knowing my LR couldn't process my RAW like before, it really gave me heart attack. Thank God the photo outcome was very satisfying. I'm just glad and happy our efforts didn't go to waste, knowing our little one will have these photos to look back at in the future and I certainly can't wait to tell her all about it.

Exploring Canggu

Poolside

峇里島真的是個充滿驚喜的地方。這一次朋友安排住在CANGGU區。雖然比上次的NONA'S BALI來得方便,可是住宿和設備都比上次的VILLA遜色很多。(突然好懷念當時候自家廚師住的炒麵和煎蛋,園丁在大家喝茶時段剪草澆花,打掃的則忙著打掃房間⋯⋯ 我就整個少奶奶邊喝茶邊監督地舒服臉 😂 哇那畫面~)

這一次帶了兩部相機和一顆鏡頭,最後還是敗給貪方便的心態和不想(寶寶的)背包那麼重而放棄了比較重的PEN-F和鏡頭,只帶了COMPACT型的MJU-II,沒想到漏光程度這麼的放肆!😏 這也是我第一次用FUJICOLOR C200,個人是覺得這底片色調太適合拍SUMMER HOLIDAY了!
