  • Week 1: Life changing!

    Mama’s Precious Princess,

    You have totally turned my world around!

    Pictures for now… and more about my experience later.

    After all, a picture speaks a thousand words.

    I am still trying to get over the amazement of having you here with me now, when just a week ago you were still inside me.

    You don’t really like being swaddled (and you sleep better with your left hand free) but you don’t really have a say in the matter at the moment.

    I have never seen your PaPa smile so much! PaPa loves you and I can imagine him trying to stop himself from trying to spoil you rotten.

    And I will keep reminding you that you will have to learn to smile a lot like your MaMa… One of your favourite expressions at the moment;

    Love, MaMa.

  • Blessed Christmas

    Thank you dear Lord for a wonderful year. I have so much to be thankful for this year.

    A wonderful family who loves me unconditionally. Thank you – and I love you.

    My husband, my friend who has been supportive, patient and kind. My husband who has always been there for me. I love you so much.

    I am healthy and happy.

    We are so blessed to have Little Miss Seow, whom we will be meeting soon. I love you already.

    Wishing everyone a joyous and wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Thank you Lord Jesus.

  • A very rainy Koh Samui: 4 to 7 December

    I kid you not when I say it did not stop raining at all! The rain just kept on coming… on and on and on and did not let up even when we left 3 days later. We had to take a four wheeler to the airport to catch our flight because it was flooding. Thank God! The airports were not flooded though there were many flights that were delayed – again, thankfully not ours.

    It was cloudy the day we got there.

    The following morning – there was a bit of a hesitant sun… and from 1pm it started raining… and it DID.NOT.STOP.RAINING after that.

    We stayed at Beach Republic on Chaweng Beach. It’s a nice place, we had a pool villa which we did not use because it DID.NOT.STOP.RAINING.

    Nevertheless, I had a fantastic time with my husband – all we did – since there was nothing else we could do, and we were indoor bound… was talk about our feelings… and plans for the future. Yeah right! HA.HA.HA….. For those of you that know my husband – as if that is ever likely to happen.

    Some pictures:

  • Shanghai: 3 to 7 November 2010

    This is my first trip ever to China. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and had lots of fun and good food.

    The sights in Shanghai are amazing – my pictures does not do the place justice at all!

    The Bund at night.

    This picture was taken from across the river – not the best of pictures, but it’ll do. I thought it was breathtaking.

    Probably the only tourist site we went to – Tian Zi Fang. I loved it because it was full of  little quaint shops and eateries!

    Absolutely packed with tourists with their cameras. Has anyone noticed how every other person has a DSLR these days? I have one too!

    I also went to the very busy Nanjing Road where millions of people venture every day.

    And my not so favourite things in Shanghai – this fast food restaurant that serves porridge and noodles and you tiau (though the soya milk is yummy).

    And I found this rather icky too; pre-packed chicken wings?! Seriously?!

    So pretty – sitting next to the propellers didn’t seem too bad after all.
