The Haul from Robinsons Part 2 of 3


Just an update about my Graco playpen we bought for Little Chuck the day before. The salesman from Robinsons gave me a call to say that the playpen has reduced price from $249 to $229! It seems weird that a salesman will do that, but if I were to make a trip down he could […]

The Haul from Robinsons Part 1 of 3


The Not-So-Secret Robinsons Sale. This is my first time to a closed-door shopping sale and I must say it’s a great experience! It all started with a registered mail from Hong Kong. Daddy Chuck’s company has this reward system where they reward their employees with shopping vouchers for their good performance. After looking through the […]

What is labour like?

As my due date draws nearer, I can’t help but imagine what labour is like. A lot of anxiety, a lot of anticipation, sometimes fear and a little worried. Just a teeny weeny bit of excitement. What is labour like? Some say going into labour is like having painful menstruation cramps. Some say it’s like […]

Stretched Away


I drank like a hippo when I made myself Bird’s Nest and I had sudden sharp pains on my bladder! I had to bend my body forward 90 degrees to relieve that pain. Gosh.. can’t stuff that much into me ya. Number 1. We were having dinner at a new found beer spot at BLooiE’s […]

Getting Poked in my Dreams

I could remember my dream vividly. A syringe was being poked into every one of my fingers on my right hand and blood was drawn. Happens swiftly, no hiccups – needle goes in vertically, draws blood and it’s out. I was then adjourned to another place and the poking continues on my left fingers. This […]

The instructor makes sure the right parts of your body are toned and focuses on some techniques for breathing. Quoted from […]

5 Food I Miss Most after I got Pregnant


This is listed down in increasing order of preference. #5 Pineapple Rice – I could probably do without pineapple (the fruit itself) as I was never a big fan of it, but I love pineapple rice when it comes to Thai food. I will sheepishly ask Daddy Chuck if I can have pineapple rice whenever […]

Of Heartburns, Teas and Manuka Honey


I’ve been suffering from minor heartburns recently – the feeling is such that a small amount of acidic substance seeps up and down my throat. I also burp quite a bit, sometimes with a big relief. I’m either eating too much at a go or just blame it on the hormones! The scientific explanation for […]

Little Chuck’s Skin


I spent an evening’s time to look for a suitable “baby blogskin” for Little Chuck’s blog. My criteria is that it should have pastel colours, not too girlie (or pinkish), something simple preferably with 2 columns and has enough blog space to put up proper 480-pixel pictures. It’s been many years since I’ve used Blogspot, […]
