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." -

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!
I've got until 14th Sept to consider it. Ergh.. very tempting shiah.. Have been thinking to upgrade my other account too the other day. More over, this is the home of all my collection...

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!
See ya there :)

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

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!
