16th Oct 2007 - The Arrival of Chloe

It's been 2 weeks since i delivered baby Chloe. After 38 weeks of the pregnancy journey, finally, hubby and I were upgraded to PARENTS!

If u followed my previous post, I was worried about labour so much that I dreamt I'd be pushed into emergency c-sect.. Now that I consider myself one of the lucky few to have a smooth delivery. Here's a flash back to my birth story:

13th and 14th Oct - I'm glad I got to date with Hubby over the weekend! Just the two of us! :)

15th Oct AM - Hubby and I attended our 1st appointment at the HDB to sign papers for our resale transaction. Soon after the procedure, I whispered to Chloe inside me, "Hey baby, now that this has been signed, u can come out anytime now.. Papa and Mama are ready for your arrival! It's okay even Mama have to go hospital right here right now!"

15th Oct PM - Same thing, Hubby and I kept on talking to Chloe, asking her to give me some delivery signs soon (before hubby has to go on biz trip on the 27th)
Before sleep, slight cramp felt at my waist.. Could this be the IT, the sign?

16th Oct AM - Woke up and thought, "So nothing happened last nite!" But the cramp remained the whole morning. Had my daily routine and went to work as usual. After I reached the office, I started asking 'experienced' colleagues about contraction. "How does it really feel?" I told colleagues, "I got a feeling that baby will come out soon, today most likely!" Haha.. I don't know why i was so sure to make such a comment, guess it was pure mother instinct!! :)

10.30 AM - Slight stain spotted! Oh Wow.. getting more excited. This MUST be IT!! On and off cramp still there, texted a few close friends to double confirm about the signs and updated Hubby at the same time.. Thought I'd wait for a more reassuring sign to kick in.

12.30 AM - Pain was felt more during lunch break, oh good thing i get to enjoy a bowl of hot laksa :)

2.00 PM - The so-called (bloody)show came in! Called up gynae clinic to check. Nurse asked me to time my contraction. When it's getting nearer (5 mins apart) then consider to admit hospital.. Informed my superior and colleagues.. I asked for early release to go home.. Called hubby, mother-in-law and my mum at Indonesia. I was excited instead of nervous! :)

3.15 PM - Hubby came and picked up to go home together.. Contraction sometimes at 5 mins, sometimes at 10 mins apart.

4.00 PM - Reached home and bathed, had a quick bite. Mother-in-law cooked beehoon for me :) MIL urged us to go hospital soon rather than waited at home.

5.20 PM - This is the official admittance time at Thomson Medical Centre. At the observation room, midwife checked, and I was 4 cm dilated!! Yepee.. No false alarm after all, contraction timed at 5 mins apart. But she said to expect another 6 or 7 hours til delivery. Asked if I'd like to have some bite, so I ordered sandwich for dinner.. Yumz.. I didn't want to end up hungry and no energy to push haha

7.00 PM - Pain getting worse.. "Why is my dinner not served yet? Gynae has also not checked in!" Was kinda impatient.. somebody... please check if I'm making any improvement? Any nearer to delivery?

7.45 PM - Finally the sandwich was served.. But I only get to have few bites when the pain went off..

8.00 PM - Real pain.. I was holding on to my eeyore for stress release.. Somebody HELP!

8.50 PM - I forced hubby to bug the midwife on my condition, "Tell her I'm feeling real pain.. please come check on me!"

9.00 PM - Finally she pushed me to labour ward. Checked, I was 8 cm dilated! And started to prep up all the machine and equipment. I was given the laughing gas for pain relief. She taught me how to cope with the contraction by breathing the correct way.

9.15 PM - Oh my dear gynae finally eager to see me.. But wait, he disappeared and went next door to deliver other patient.. Yikes!! My laughing gas was substituted with oxygen, nurse and midwife started teaching me to push the correct way. According to hubby, I was at my most violent stage.. imagine yourself :)

9.30 PM - Gynae came in to see again.. "Oh you're doing great my dear. Keep pushing!" Before he walked out of the labour ward (again), hubby saw him breaking my water bag and said that's to expedite the process!

9.35 PM - Midwife pulled gynae in again (he's outside chitchatting with his secondary classmate, can u believe it?) Then the pushing, the yelling continued, in full force. Push and never give up!! Argh!!!!

10.00 PM - There, my lovely Chloe finally came out to see the world....

The rest was medical procedures: collecting blood from baby's cord and me, stitching, removing of placenta. They're painful, but it's nothing compared to the delivery. Yes, it's not an easy one, yet it's the most unforgettable experience! I still remember how I kept myself awake that night just thinking back the delivery process..

On the end note, I'm still very much proud of myself giving birth the natural way, without getting induced, without any drip and without epidural! Oh Yeah! :*

And Laogong... Thanks for always being there for me :) Love You! Muach!

The Third Trimester

It says 34 days to go to the arrival of my baby Chloe..
I must say the third trimester is really a challenging period for me.

Am currently at my 35th week. Feeling slow, heavy and clumsy mostly. My baby Chloe weighed about 2.4 kg last week. And my total weight gain up til now has been 20 kg!! No wonder moving around is really something now! I need a breather after climbing steps, the sighing ain't sexy at all :( Getting in and out of the house over that steel door also requires some skills!

My mobility is one thing. The tossing and turning at the middle of the nights is another issue. The frequent trips to the bathroom; my increasing body temperature (i wonder why it keeps on rising!) which always awaken me up; the uneasiness of mind; and the highest level of sound sensitivity has made me the lightest-sleeper ever!

By the way, i just broke a new record this morning. I made 5 trips to the bathroom and I got up at 3.45 a.m.!!

As I hoped to find more peace during the night, I developed a BOIL under my waist yesterday!! OUCH.. I still gotta endure the sharp pain above all the previous issues. :_(

As compared to the first trimester, I believe the third trimester challenges one's patience and endurance. Maybe all that I'm experiencing now is to prep myself better when Chloe arrives :)

"More sleepless nights and more commitments are on their way," I comfort myself, "Hang in there... Just another 4 weeks to go..."

Or maybe less,.. judging by how my gynae always comment on the tad big size of my baby. (Oh ya, Chloe gained an average of 700 g in every 3 weeks for this trimester) I can't wait for my next appointment in another two weeks. He said if baby has gained and grown enough, he will try to induce me for earlier delivery. Hm...

I pray nothing but for safe and smooth delivery...

I bumped into Michelle Chia!!

Very rare chance that hubby and I would go down Orchard to shop. We went down to Ngee Ann City (Taka) today to visit its Baby fair.

First stop after reaching was, of course, going to the loo (mind the pregnant lady!)

Second stop was buying some finger food at its market (for the cravings!)

That's when I bumped into Michelle Chia, spotted queuing behind me buying for the same kueh kueh :) I was so excited to see her 'live' in front of me! I think she's the first female local artiste that I admired since I came Singapore. Probably would be the only one that I'd go up to for taking a shot together.. haha

I regretted I didn't leave the house with some make up today.. and also my contact lens! Argh...

As for the baby fair, we checked out a couple of baby stuff but purchased nothing in the end due to its crazy long queu.. Might go again one of this weekdays to avoid the crowd.

Well at least our trip to town resulted in something :)

The Power of Dream(z)

Over the last weekend (05.08.07), we made two biggest purchases in our lives.

A dream house and a dream car..

After a few failed attempts in purchasing a HDB flat, finally we found this 5-room flat we like just opposite our parent's house. With housing prices soaring so high lately, this is considered by far the most reasonable one. Good thing it falls under the price range of Median Resale Prices by HDB. At least we know our heads are not chopped due to this housing estate bubbles :)

Located at just across the street from our parents' house, it guarantees future convenience in getting babysitting help to our baby. The only setback about this new flat is that it's only on the 2nd level.. but lucky enough we're also currently staying on the 2nd floor... at least not so much of a 'downgrade'.

The first appointment of the resale transaction is scheduled sometime in October. And we're hoping that the whole procedure will be accomplished by November. And looking forward to move in early next year :) Argh... so relieved that we can finally have our own place where we can call HOME...

As for the dream car, we're upgrading to a 7-seater MPV.. It is to accommodate increasing family members (our baby Chloe). The new ride is scheduled to arrive end of this week.. Some thing to look forward to over these boring weekdays.. *__*

Hubby gave me the privilege to choose for the colour of the car, the combination of the leather seats, and also the new wheel rims to go along with... Ha.. i hope all turn out to be fine.. perfectly fine..

More activities done in this month can be viewed here. Have a great week ahead everyone!

Chloe at Week 28

A little update on my little one...
Check up last week measured that she's weighing at 1.1 kg, and her head has engaged (turned down)..That explains why i feel more pressure and weight recently..

Gynae couldn't scan on her facial features due to her position.. no ultrasound photos to upload this week..

And i have gained another 2 kg, total of 14 kg pregnancy weight gain so far..

Geez.. don't ask how heavy i am now, or how heavy i weighed pre-pregnancy

Bodhi Tree@Jin Long Si

Hubby came across about this Singapore's oldest Bodhi Tree at Jin Long Si temple in some forum 2 weeks back. So we decided to go down and witness it ourselves that weekend. We were fascinated! We visited the temple again last week, we even brought friends along :)

Jin Long Si temple (a village-like temple that doesn't look anything like the modern temples in Singapore; it has the unique kampung atmosphere and a place of community spirit) and the 120 years old Bodhi Tree.

What makes this Bodhi tree unique is that you are able to see some (spiritual) images in its trunk. Here we pointed out a few:

An adult elephant, plus another baby elephant if you can see...

An opened left arm stretched downwards...
Hubby and I feel it's a pity that the authorities are taking over the land in the name of progress. They claimed that the land is needed for MRT circle line. The Millenia institute next to the temple has already been torn down. We helped signed the petition to save both the temple and the tree during the trip. If you have the chance, do pay a visit and see it for yourself why this place should be preserved.

Read more about Jin Long Si temple and its Bodhi Tree here and here.

End Note. We saw this rooster while we headed back. Hubby insisted me to snap a photo. Yes, it's such a rare view in Singapore...

Chloe at Week 26

These are few shots taken by my dear gynae two days ago. She was caught yawning in pic #1. It was so cute to see her yawning act live in action on the screen!

Chloe is now weighing at about 990gram. And me, 1kg weight gain for 2 weeks (the slightest of all the time!) I think i'm a bit stressed lately due to work. Now that i have to remind myself everytime i lose control, "Take it easy!" "It's only work!"

Then perhaps you could tell me where did all the extra kilos go to? 0_o

The Slow Down Culture

I read one interesting article about Slow Down Culture yesterday. Though source unknown, I'd like to share some good points from the article.
  • It is a culture with no-rush attitude which encourages people to do things with greater quality, productivity, perfection, with attention to details and less stress
  • In another word, it is to reestablish family values, friends and leisure time
  • It has been practiced in the European countries such as France, Germany and Sweden
  • There's even this movement called Slow Food. As opposed to Fast Food, it encourages people to eat and drink slowly, with enough time to taste their food, spend time with the family, friends, without rushing
  • Applied to work context, this culture means less coercive work environment, more happy, lighter and more productive where employees enjoy doing what they know best how to do
So now is the question: How many organization in Singapore actually appreciate and practice the idea? How many Singaporeans are aware that we need to slow down a bit once in a while?

My company recently organized an employee climate survey to improve the working environment. Few remarkable questions asked were:
  • Has the work quality been compromised to meet the quantity and deadline?
  • Has the job allow sufficient time to socialize with friends and family?

It is HOW you choose to live the moment...

Both hubby and I have been going on walk in the weekdays evening. (Yeah that's the evidence of our walk last night!) It's part of my pre-labour exercise, his keep fit attempts. An hour walk around the neighbourhood area, grocery shopping. It's kinda nice to leave the car in its parking lot, abandon the mobile phone at home and spend quality time strolling and sharing. This might not be an ideal romantic way to spend the night away. By the time we reach home, we take a shower, do some reading and hit the sack at 10pm...

"Many of us live our lives running behind time, but we only reach it when we die of a heart attack or in a car accident rushing to be on time. Others are so anxious of living the future that they forget to live the present, which is the only time that truly exists. We all have equal time throughout the world. No one has more or less. The difference lies in how each one of us does with our time. We need to live each moment."

Chloe at 24th week 2nd day

These were some shots of my baby taken last Saturday, at her 24W02D. She is now weighing at 650 g. Yeah that means I've put another few kg this month. To be exact, 3 kg this round :( and total pregnancy weight gain has been about 11 kg!!
"Hey, as long as baby and mummy are healthy, let's not worry too much about the extra fat that I've been putting on.. "

Seen below close up of Chloe's feature (use ur imagination to figure her head, eyes, little nose and lips!)

This one was a little covered by her tiny little hand :) She was waving at us i bet!

And her little feet... :)

Pre-parental Training

Invited to a friend's housewarming during the weekend.. Ended up babysitting and playing with the kids for hours! With two princesses - Beverley; Curtinas and mischievous Donovan. Lovely!

Aaron back in action

Just saw the newspaper this morning about Aaron Kwok's Live in Singapore on Sept 1st, 2007. Being a number one fan since many many many years ago... it's really a pity to miss this upcoming one! You can judge me being bias, but having watched him perform on stage is one hell of experience(s)!! True performer, true idol!

As i do my count down, I'd be in my 32nd week by then. There's no way i could be in the National Stadium cheering/supporting/yelling for him :P For others that could be there, please support him for me! Or send some regards on my behalf too :)

Week 23

"Your baby is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound. He may be able to feel your movements now, so put on some tunes and dance around the house. No matter what race your baby is, he looks red now due to blood vessels showing through his transparent skin. His true skin tone will develop over the course of his first year. Blood vessels in your baby's lungs are developing to prepare him for breathing, but complete lung development will take many more months. The lungs are the last organ to fully develop." - babycenter.com

What about the mummy? Mummy is glowing as Chloe is kicking more prominently these days. Yesterday I finally managed to 'catch' her kick. Felt it directly on my palm. My hand bounced when she kicked! I can't wait to 'see' her kick now.. I want to see the wave on my belly from one side to another :)

Kick me baby one more time!

Music and Lyrics

Watched Music and Lyrics DVD over the weekend. It's been some time since i last watched a romantic comedy as nice as this. Maybe since 50 First Dates? or The Holiday?

What first attracts me to watch this show is of course Hugh Grant :) and the fact that it resolves around music and lyrics! But the show turned out to be more than i expected. Sweet, funny, smooth and most importantly, something i can very much relate to!

Best line i love (quoted by Drew Barrymore) from the movie is:
Music or melody is the physical attraction or sex; while
Lyrics is the insight after you get to know the other person deeper

Not forgetting the cheesy 80s music performed by Hugh Grant (and his hot hip moves!) also the main song composed by Hugh and Drew in the movie, Way Back Into Love (the lyrics is beautiful!) Check out the lyrics below..

:: Way Back Into Love ::

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past, I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need em again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind
All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere
I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not just somebody just to get me throught the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end
There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end

New Home for my Private Photos

Wah-hey... It only took 24 hours for Yahoo! to move my 1,315 photos to Flickr.
And they are giving me the free trial of Pro account for 3 months..
Tsk tsk.. i wonder if i will succumb to the offer after it expires!

USD 24.95 per year for renewal. How, what'dya think?

For those who know me, view my photos here and add me as a contact!

Closing down of Yahoo! Photos

For those of you that are not aware yet, Yahoo! Photos is closing down for good, on September 20, 2007 (That's another 99 days from now)

As a user since college days, i have quite a number of private photo collection uploaded there. Now that i have to move those pics to another home. Yahoo! claims that they'll ease the moving if i'm to transfer them to Flickr as it's also the creation of Yahoo! Well i haven't tried it just yet. Maybe i should create another new account so that i won't mix my general shots with these private photos :)

For more info about the closing down, read here

Happy moving aye!

End note: Indeed it's an easy process of moving from Yahoo! Photos to Flickr. All i did was to confirm a few account names, a few clicks. The rest will be taken care of. And i'll receive an email to notify the completion of the moving. How cool is that :) Oh i love Flickr!

Week 21 and counting...

Have been quite vain lately after knowing the gender of my baby..
I perk myself up by putting back the make up that 'almost' starts collecting dust in the shelves..
I keep on wondering will my baby girl look more like me or my hubby?
Either way, we both have to look good enough for her to take our good features haha!

Just taken this pic via my new G5 IMac Photo Booth, must say it's really a great software for vain girl like me :P
Comparing this pic to the one on my profile.. ergh.. i think my face has got extra fat by 2 cm all round :X

Friday, June 8, 2007

It's a girl!!

Went for my detailed scan yesterday at week 20.

Sonographer asked: "Do u both intend to find out the sex of the baby?"
I nodded hard: "Yes!" (in my mind thinking, yes pls, go ahead and announce it loud about my prince)
Sonographer: "GIRL"
Me: "Huh?"
Sonographer: "It's a girl"
Me: "Looking at hubby with mixed feelings..."

Well well, after putting quite high hope on having a boy, i'd be lying if i say i wasn't disappointed.

Happy to see my princess is doing well though. Everything look normal from the scan, except that she's a bit big considered for bb at week 20. I've also gained too much for the past month, 4.5 kg.. geez.. Think i have to control my intake now..

Also to-do-list for me now is to buy PINK stuff for my baby. Start looking around for baby products. Looking at nice baby girl pics, they say this will help to enhance your baby feature :)

And, we have decided to name her CHLOE :)

Chloe, How lovely!

There goes my dream house

Ok.. it's more like my dream flat.

After been waiting for about 4 months, so disappointed to learn that the owner needs another 3 year to sell her flat to us!!
Said she has just bought a new bungalow which needs 3 years to be completed. So she gotta postpone the selling..

Though it's not a 'dream' dream house like pictured below... but it's the best that fits hubby and my requirements in the past one year.

A flat that is near to the inlaw (for obvious reasons, taking care of baby, and the meal provider :P). This one is just 8 floors apart!! Flat that is high floor. On the plus side, it has the pool view right from the master bedroom!! How romantic!! Though it's just a public swimming pool across the street, hey, what beats a FREE view??

Duh.. the more i write, the more disappointed i am..

Now has to go back to square one, start contacting our house agent, go for house viewing, provided we find something we like~~

I won't stop telling myself.. maybe this is blessing in disguise, maybe this waiting game will lead to some good find in the end of the day. Say maybe we're striking toto soon? so i can get my dream house??

A Year after ROM

I get so excited about today as it's officially been a year after our Registration of Marriage (ROM). Though hubby is down with flu and hence all plans HAVE to be postponed. But it really warms my heart to start the day!

I'd always like to remind myself on how lucky I am to be married to him (ah so mushy)..
It didn't take long for us to tie down the knot.

Here is the highlight of our milestones!
We started to get to know each other 1st Jan 2006 via the net.
We first talked on the phone on the 4th Jan.
We first (casually) met on the 5th Jan.
We first (officially) dated on the 7th Jan. Ta-da, we officially became an item.. :)

He (casually) mentioned about marriage in March 2006.
We flew back to Indonesia in April to get 'approval' from my parents.
He (officially) proposed on the 2006.05.04. time 1:02:03 am (yah that makes the memorable!)

We registered our marriage on the 1st of June 2006.
We held our customary on the 20th of January 2007.

There you go...For people who do not know us well might think that we're some love desperados that can't wait to start a family :P Anyway.. those are such memory-testing!! But certainly bring back all the sweet memories.. Maybe this post is useful in the future to remind myself on our journey!

The 18th Week

I feel bad for myself for not being able to update my posts here. Maybe i shouldn't name my blog PRIMAdaily after all... More like PRIMAmonthly

Here are some updates on my pregnancy journey so far:
- After all the morning sickness and nauseous in the 1st trimester (total throw up: 12x) finally that i get a hold of my energy back and been putting on weight steadily :)
- I feel my baby kick all the time now :)
- Oh yeah, gynae said 75% i'm expecting a boy.. OH YEAH!

Apart from that, today is my hubby's last day at his current workplace. Next month he'll be under the same holding company as mine, though different place and nature of business. Bet he will stay long this time :)

My 2nd sis-in-law has given birth this morning. Named Jazeline Jolie Wijaya.. oh i love the name :)
My best friend too has given birth to her baby twins, Macy and Lindsey on the 8th of May.

Babies, babies.. lotsa babies this year.

Can't wait for October for my turn :)

Ok.. hubby reaching soon.. gotta sign off now

psst.. at least i manage to post something hohoho

The Part of Me That No One Sees...

The Part of You That No One Sees

You are powerful, passionate, and dominant.
You have a vision of how things should be, and you do your best to make things happen.
People rely on you for your strength. You are a rock to many.

Underneath it all, you aren't so sure about your passions.
So many ideas spark your interest, it is hard for you to get behind a select few.
However, you see indecision as a sign of weakness. So you pursue your goals full force - no matter how foolish they turn out to be.

How Angry Am I?

You Are 27% Angry

You're occasionally angry, but it's really not an issue.
While you may give in to your temper once and a while, you're pretty mellow.
And as long as your anger doesn't effect your relationships, then it's probably in check.
You know that anger is a bad habit - and you don't engage in it often.

What Finger Am I?

You Are the Index Finger

You are ambitious, driven, and capable.
You aren't afraid to take responsibility for your actions - or place the blame on whoever deserves it.
You are honest, free thinking, and objective. You see things in your own way - and you aren't afraid to let everyone know about it.

You get along well with: The Thumb

Stay away from: The Ring Finger

The Changes in Me

Would like to dedicate this post to my friend S** (haha) who is soooo curious of me being pregnant.
To sum up, these are the changes i feel, i have, i endure for the past 9weeks.

- clothes feel tight due to body has expanded a little
- boobs getting bigger and really sore!! yeah need to invest on new bras!
- can't get in to my fave jeans anymore. even though i try, i'll be changing to a comfy pullover in the next second
- i think due to hormonal changes, nails grow faster, hair does grow faster too (not only the hair-'hair' but all kinda hair in ur body.. must keep on grooming and shaving la!!)

- i cry over silly commercials; 5 seconds of touching moment on the screen; little things that bug me or even little arguments
- i daydream more
- overworrying unneccessary matter
- i become more blur sotong.. keep on forgetting things
- easily irritated, easily irked..

The not-so-proud of changes:
- hungry yet fuzzy over what to have for dinner.. wanna keep on exploring NEW food that i never try
- tend to dislike my old fave dish, little taste or smell of it could make me jump
- strong sense of smell in the surrounding.. stink smell, perfume that makes me dizzy, food smell that i hate
- the dizziness, nauseous, tiredness, backache etc etc

Well i hope the third part doesn't scare u off
Trust me it's all worthwhile :)
Yes it is...

Tuesday, March 13, 2007


Yes the last post i had was pretty outdated. It has almost been a month since CNY, now then i got the time to publish the pics :P

Now that i'd like to do some update about my life for the past month.
Haven't been feeling very well lately. No, that's not necessary a bad thing.
Cos it's my 8-week-pregnancy all the reason behind the sickness *grin*
Yes life has been going really well as i wished.
Now i wanna do some ~cheesy (and very familiar) line about thanking GOD :P
Haha i'll save that to myself - Just really happy and contented how life has improved from the past years.

Oh and i finally got myself a digital camera last weekend. We chose CANON IXUS 75 to the huge 3" LCD screen.
Haven't got a hold on it. Still cracking my head with its instructions/manual :X
Well let's hope could snap good pictures to share with u guys soon.
Yeayyyy.. could upgrade myself from a self-proclaimed mobilephone maniacs to an amateur digicam user!! :)

B-day vs V-day

I used to think celebrating birthday on valentine's day was such a cool thing!
I was wrong when it comes to choosing a restaurant to dine-in. Getting a present and buying a flower!

Now that i'm officially 25 yrs old. Heard ppl tend to be more mature and more realistic when they grow older.
I'm not sure if more mature applies to me. But more realistic is indeed right! :)

Forget about the commercialized V-day.. I shall just enjoy myself on my B-day!
My mom-in-law woke up early this morning to prepare Birthday *Lucky* Eggs for me.. *so touching*
I got the whole family members singing birthday song for me! *Yeah!*

After all the effort they've put in, I guess I'll try to be more mature this year on :)

And oh, by the way. I'm enjoying V-day every other day :)

Heavenly Mushroom

Ok i never done any food review. But this one is worth recommending.
Mushroom Garden at Serangoon Garden. What first caught my attention was the nicely design interior. very zen. very soothing. very rejunevating.
I was then further impressed by all the aesthetic details they take care of. All the cutlery and the servings.

The mushroom sets are divided into 3 classes : economic, business and VIP (no kidding! that's the name they gave!)
Each set consists of starter (mushroom colddish to be dipped with wasabe, and mushroom floss!), famous Ba Bao Cha (Eight Fortune Tea), mushroom hot pot, steamed rice and desserts.

Though it's more pricely compared to the Mushroom Pot (The business set we ordered was at S$36.80++ per pax), the overall experience was certainly worth it!
Savour your appetite with all kind of mushrooms u never tried or even seen! And all including the vege and meats were imported from Taiwan.. (fresshhh..)

Drawing Personality Test

drawing personality

The results of my analysis say:
• You tend to pursue many different activities simultaneously. When misfortune does happen, it doesn't actually dishearten you all that much.
• You are a direct and forthright person. You like to get to the core of the issue right away, with few signs of hesitation.
• You like following the rules and being objective. You are precise and meticulous, and like to evaluate decisions before making them.
• You have a sunny, cheerful disposition.

What does your drawing say about YOU?

In The Mood For Love

I browse thru 'flower' in flickr everyday in the office.
I download and set them as my wallpaper too..

I admitted to my hubby yesterday, "Hey i'm beginning to love flowers lately!!"
He replied, "Is that a hint or something?"

This sudden change in me, i guess I'm in the mood for love :)
