Baby at week 13

Every time I'm about the step in to the ob-gyn consultation room, I can't help but feel excited because I know I'm about the see my unborn baby through the scan. Just the black and white image showing a baby's heartbeat makes me want to cry. It is really that exciting. Here's a scan of my baby at 13 weeks, from a small pea sized baby just 4 weeks ago, my baby has grown human-like already. It gives me a warm feeling just knowing baby is developing well inside me. Thank God for that.

All things pretty

One thing about me is that I'm a big time procrastinator. I always have this big ideas of how I want to run an online store selling women's accessories, designer costume jewelry, clothings or all things pretty. But there's always this tiny voice inside me that keeps telling me that I might not succeed doing it. There's this question of what if it's not good enough, what if nobody likes my stuff and a thousand others what if. As a matter of fact, I registed a domain way back in 2007 hoping that someday I'll have the courage to run an online store but too sad that didn't happened. Why? Because I just don't know where to start. Poor me.

My cousin sister runs an online boutique and I must say that she's doing very well. I'm sure she hesistated too in the beginning, but after seeing that she has achieved significant good results and good customers feedback, she must sure feel good about herself now. Maybe it's time for me to stop procrastinating too, and really put my mind to it. You go girl!

New iPod Shuffle

Oh, what a tiny piece of mp3 player that is. The new ipod shuffle, the first music player that talks to you. Did I just say talks? Yes, indeed. VoiceOver is the remarkable new feature that gives iPod shuffle a voice. It tells you what song is playing and who's performing it. It can even tell you the names of your playlists. How cool is that.

Seeing is believing. The new iPod shuffle is jaw-droppingly small. Yet there's room for so much more. With 4GB of storage, it now holds up to 1,000 songs and lets you enjoy multiple playlists, too. I really don't mind getting this as a gift.
Now, you can get your ipod shuffle engrave for free at Apple online store. Isn't this just the perfect gift for any occasion.

Dream wedding

It's almost over. The fatigue I experienced since Week 5 of my pregnancy is almost over. I don't feel as tired anymore. See, I can stay up till midnight, something which I wasn't able to do for the past 3 months. My body just felt so weak and it does trick to my mind as well. Just like how lack of sleep can makes me feel like I can float in the air, drifting along with the wind or something like that. Seriously.

I was watching Discovery Home and Health on cable TV just now, and didn't even realised that it's already was past my bed time. You know, I love watching the wedding planner because that kind of gives me an idea how a real wedding is. Of course there are endless and endless things to prepare, things to do on the wedding day itself. It's really getting to a point where it's almost impossible to have a wedding without a wedding planner. Unless you're in for a chaotic wedding.

No wonder more and more people are opting for destination weddings in romantic places far away from home, like at the White-Sandy Beaches of Riviera Maya. All they need to do is to fly in their closest family members and every thing else is taken care of. Stress-free wedding is so becoming the next big thing.

I'm now seeing pink!

I really can't wait to find out the sex of the baby I'm carrying now. Well well, 13 weeks is way too early to tell, right now, my unborn baby is about72mm, so no way it's possible to find out if my baby is a girl or boy. Honestly, we're all praying for a baby girl. We've got 9 boys altogether between my siblings, and you know a girl would be nice if not smashing great. My sister sent me this place where you can find really cheap cute baby clothes. Oh, those little teeny tiny outfit are all so cute. Feels like just buying everything in store. I got to wait for at least another month to know if I'm carrying a boy or a girl. As for now, I just get to browse the online store, no buying baby stuff just yet.

That's 500 bucks gone

Just got home after a long day out. We went to the hospital for my 3rd check-up and I'm happy to say that baby is growing so well despite the fact that my belly is not quite showing. My gynae told me that I've gained some weight but hello..400g don't count right. I can lose that weight after a pee and a poo. Seriously. Never mind, so long that the weight gain is not too dramatic.
I jokingly asked my gynecologist if it's too early to tell the sex of the baby (deep down inside, I'm hoping it's not too early to tell!), he said it's still to early and furthermore, baby's legs are positioned very close together. Oh well, never mind.

Oh, one more thing, there's glucose in my urine, which basically explains that my sugar level is quite high. So my gynae advised that I do self-monitoring for my glucose for the next couple of weeks, just in case he needs to put me on some medication. I've got a loan of the glucose monitoring device from the hospital for 320 ringgit, and my visit to the gynae cost 83 ringgit. That's like a whopping 500 bucks spent in just half a day, which includes our meal of course. Oh, money! So hard to earn, so easy to spend it. I need more morgan dollars.

After that, we went shopping, bought 2 panties. You know how all my clothes are starting to shrink, or rather I'm getting bigger as day passes. No thanks to the Sushi and Udon we had at sakae sushi before heading home. I used to be able to go out the entire day and not feel tired at all, but man, I'm so sleepy now already. I need a rest.

Here's Baby Josh

This is my cute baby nephew Josh and his mommy at his fullmoon dinner last Saturday. Born at only 8 months old, he weighed only a mere 2 kg at birth but has grown so much since I last saw him at 3 days old. He was born via an emergency c-section because he was kind of under stress in his mommy's womb. He's sure a survivor, not having to stay in an incubator at all, not evenf for a day. Though tiny, Josh sure is a tough boy. He's such a cutie pie with very nice features. Oh, I'm falling for him. I love babies, and I really can't wait to hold my newborn this coming September.

Monex my BFF!

My aunt was just telling me the other day that for her daughter's wedding, she'll just give her a big ang pow (monetary gift) for her wedding, in which I reply, "you shouldn't". I know it's really not my say, a mom can give whatever to her daughter and of course I have no say. Instead I suggested that my aunt should buy gold accessories for her daughter, be it a gold chain, a bangle or even a pair of diamond studded earring. At least her daughter will have a valuable keepsake from her mother, a keepsake I'm sure she'll treasure many years down the road. Agree?

And guess what, just last week, my sister told me that gold price has increase up to 129 ringgit per gram. In just a mere 2 months, and that was like before the Chinese New Year, the price of gold is still somewhere around a hundred ringgit a gram. If only I knew gold price will increase so quickly, I'll spend my fortune buying gold instead of just cashing it in the bank earning a pitiful interest rate. Gold prices and Monex is now everyone's best friend.

Ya, so I said, If only! Too bad I didn't.

Bored as I am

I'm so looking forward to the weekend. No waking up early, chauffeuring my son to school, sleep in late, go shopping and go eat out. I'm so sick of staying at home, I'm stuck at home with no car, no bicycle, and with a motorbike which I have no license to ride. I so need to get out there to just to let my skin breathe, let my eyes roam and let my legs walk a mile in the mall. Can't wait for Friday!

Not just a glass of cold drink

One day, when I was at my sister's house, I asked for a glass of icy cold water, and she, surprised as she looks, said a pregnant woman should never take cold drinks. I was like "huh, seriously?" I find myself so loving ice water ever since I got pregnant. And to say that, I've been drinking more ice water for the past three months than perhaps the entire year combined. Well well, how true is it that pregnant woman is forbidden to drink cold water? I really don't know. Maybe this is just another Chinese old wives tale.

Anyway, just want to share this with you. Apparently, heart attack and cold water they're the worst enemy. Of course it is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal. Just like what the Japanese and Chinese loves to do, drinking hot tea after mealtime. There goes my big glass of icy cold water.
