Hello #PoppyseedSia!

I know it has been a while, but I have to keep the secret ‘a SECRET’ until the time is right. There is nothing else I want to document apart from this exciting new chapter of mine and every time I log onto my little space, I just feel like sharing my joy with you all. And here is the news: Kenny-and-I-are-EXPECTING! *tonnes of yays* (I cry breaking this news, so excited!)

I didn't expect a pregnancy initially. Cos every time I think of pregnancy, I have this story my biology teacher told me, playing over and over again in my head. She said: For a sperm to fertilize an egg, it’s a long and rough journey, and most of them didn’t make it through. And for those that did, if they make a wrong turn, then BAD LUCK! The Egg can only live for one day and is waiting at the other side! (See! We'll need a lot of luck to get pregnant!!!)

So, when my period didn’t report on the day it should, I just thought it was late. (and partly also because I don’t want my baby to be born in January or February, like me, for a very silly reason: No one would remember his or her birthday because it’s still school holiday.) But still, I went and bought pregnancy test kits just so I can pee on one bahahahhaha

May 2015: this is the first time I peed on a test kit! *milestone*.  It was a very long 5-min wait in my bathroom….. I came down and Kenny asked how many lines I got: I said none! It was a messy test (you don’t want to know the details) and I got an INVALID result. *husband laughed hysterically at me* I quickly forced my bladder full and tried again. This time (using a different method), I got one line!

Okay, I’m not pregnant.

Somehow, I was a bit disappointed and I was rather confused. ‘It just doesn’t explained why my period is late if I am not pregnant!’ And it’s funny how, I got addicted to peeing on test strips for the next two days and got disappointed again and again, until one of the kit actually showed 2 lines, one FAT and one very very slim line!

My heart raced a little and I went to look for Kenny in his cave to check if he too, saw that almost imaginary line that I saw! It was the longest stares on a piece of tool coated with my pee and with a very uncertain tone, he said, ‘…ya…I think there’re two lines!’. Next thing we did, we dug out all the kits in the bins and they all read one FAT and one faint line.  *happy tears*

We rushed to a clinic just to confirm my pregnancy but the Doc couldn’t see anything on the ultrasound and the pregnancy test cassette (supposingly the most accurate) gave me that imaginary line again! My doc concluded that, either I wasn’t pregnant *very very disappointed T______________T*……or that it’s too early to pick up.  I have to return in a week’s time to confirm.

The wait was killing me. ‘Am I pregnant or am I not?!’ I just need an answer! I peed on the kits again and broke down seeing the imaginary line was almost gone!

*Fast forward to one week later* I was so nervous when I went into Doc’s consultation room. I was so afraid that I’d be disappointed again. ‘Please don’t play with my heart’ I prayed.  When a sac showed up on that black and white screen, my doc said ‘Yap, you’re pregnant and that is your baby!’. I was so happy~~~~ so relief ~~~~ to learn about the news! Just overjoyed! *happy tears*

I was only a little over 4 weeks pregnant! And our baby is merely the size of a Poppy Seed! #PoppyseedSia. Oh, my baby! I’ll do anything to protect you! *in tears*. I got really protective since then.

Example 1:
I let my dog out for a run and he almost made me trip. *ROARRRRR~~* He got scolded after that!


Example 2:
Me: Say hi to baby!

Niece: *looking at my tummy* Hello?! AnyBoDY home?


I can’t help it! My maternal instinct to protect PoppySeed is so strong!

*Fast Forward* Poppy seed is coming to 15 weeks old! I am pretty grateful that Poppyseed has been treating me quite well. I am so called the LUCKY ones! I went through my first trimester with no morning sickness, no headaches etc. The only symptoms I have were constant hunger and what Kenny described as ‘Silent but deadly’ gases! Hahahahahah!

I am now in my second trimester, and my belly is starting to show.

To my baby,

Please grow well inside mommy’s belly k? We just want you to grow strong and healthy! We love you, our little bundle of joy! See you in the next scan! Be good!

Muah! Mommy loves you!

so this is 'First Aid'...part 1

I have 2 days of First Aid training at my workplace, and it turns out to be fun and hilarious!

Trainer:I have seen people putting weird stuff on the wound. What have you come across?

A: Coffee!!
my monkey mind: Wow?! Very creative! Liddat also can?

B: Tobacco leaves!!
my monkey mind: Huh? Miss smoking that much?

my monkey mind: I wonder what is the reason behind? Somemore must be COLGATE...not DARLIE?!

My monkey mind: But how come this man pakai colgate and left with this much of teeth only?

Trainer: Guys!!! See ~ ~ ~You get all different kind of 'Treatments'. This is what you should do *and he explained for the next 20 minutes*

Trainer: Now, what do you as a First Aider when someone got burnt ?

D: Find some butter!!

Trainer: To make it EXTRA CRISPY is it?

HAHAHAHAHA !!! *that is me laughing loudly in the Auditorium*

Can not tahan, my colleagues are so funny!   LOLOL!!!

View so this is 'First Aid' part 2 here!

Taiwan: JiuFen - PingXi (九份-平溪)

*Continuing from Taiwan: Taipei post* Day Two!
Here comes our Amazing race!
First up, Tip #1:we headed back to the bus station (台北西站B栋) to put our luggage (1 x big, 1 x small, 1 x hand carry) into the locker!
Can not fit leh!
I felt like we were playing log puzzle live with our luggage
Hahahaha we tried all combo, vertically, horizontally, on top etc but it just won’t fit.
In the end, I combine our luggage into 2! Sit on both of them to zip it up, stuff it into locker, and force the door shut with my butt pushing against it! I know it’s a bit Sia Suey to do that in public (somemore the lockers are just outside the restroom, lots of people passing by you know) but never mind lah, no one knows we are Malaysian. Lolol!
Tada! Done!
No luggage! We are good to go!
Tip # 2: We took a train toRui Fang train station (瑞芳火车站) and then a bus to 九份. [Tip # 3: Bus stop is next to Welcome Mart (顶好) just opposite the train station. Hop on bus number 1062, 788, 856, 825  or any buses that is heading …

Wedding 101: Bridal Studios in Kuching

*continuing from Wedding 101: Wedding Planners (Kuching/Sibu)*
I came home. Dad greeted 'Where have you been?'

'Bridal Studio Hunting' I said.

'HARRR?!'  he exclaimed 'You surveyed all the Kuching Bridal Studios liao har?!'

Oh my cute Papa! Of course NOT!!! I laughed for a moment and a thought stroke in. 
Hang on, dad has his point too, I don't have to spend almost every weekend being physically in one of the Bridal studios ehh! There must be a more efficient/ convenient way~ 
Then, *wink* I got an idea!
TIP #1:Why not survey them online (Fb, website)! It'll save a lot of time and you can still narrow down the list!
Read their REVIEWS. Check out their photos for their PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS. Message them if you wish!
This will save you a lot of time (and petrol too)!

TIP #2: Well, in case you are clueless about the Bridal Studios available in Kuching, I've compiled the list below.Some are pulled out from forums (in Black), some from my visits (Red)

Wedding 101: Choosing a venue for Wedding Reception

*Updated: 25 July 2014*
*Hi, I am preparing for wedding on 09/09/2014 and I'll be sharing my story/ useful info/tips on my little space here. Hopefully it's helpful.
I have created a new label under 'Weddings 101' so do check them out! 
*continuing from: Wedding 101: Where to 'Kua Zit Ji' in Kuching*
I guess both parents have met and set your wedding date? Next up: You need to book a wedding venue ASAP!
Let's face it! There is only <----> this much of wedding reception venues to choose from in Kuching, plus with that 吉日, you can pretty much expect that there are a few more couples that are getting married on the same day!
I suggest you get an idea about: Tip #1: if both families are gonna have a joined reception (男女联婚) or separate? Tip # 2: the max numbers of guests invited.
These two questions will help to narrow down the available choices.
Tip #3: here is the compilation I have done for tables above 40:
(pls note prices indicated excludes 6% tax and 10 % s…
