I went to bed & woke up with a terrible and throbbing headache yesterday. Decided to stay home to rest. Since I can't be resting the whole day, it was also planned that Zach will not go to babysitter's place after school.

I went to his school at 11.50am to pick him up. He saw me, got up, with a surprised look ran to me and gave me a very very tight hug! I can't help but to tear.. I juz felt so helpless at times like this because he needs me clearly but being a full-time working mum, I can only relish this joy once a while..

We had small shell pasta with cream snapper n mince pork for lunch. It feels good to watch him finish up his lunch!! :)

I made an impromptu move to bring him to East Coast for sand play. He's having runny nose n some fresh air may help!! Round up all the tools required, we made our way there...

He was very happy to be able to play freely with the sand & water. I felt so relaxed and happy too.. Wish the day would last longer cos we only spent 45 mins at the beach :(

Nevertheless it was great spending quality time with Zach before the arrival of his lil bro. I wanted to make sure Zach will not feel left out or lonely. I've made mental note to bring him put on an individual basis every mth!! :)

We're both fooling ard at home. Hehe

Half-way mark

Yesterday marked my 20th week of pregnancy. Time flies for sure.. Counting it'll be another 17 or 18 more weeks to go. Boy, it's scary. Scary because of delivery? Nah.. Scary because of confinement? Nah. Scared whenever I thought of returning back to work. The logistic nightmare of preparing 2 kids. One to nursery n another to babysitter. With me need to express, can I even get decent sleep?? Haha

Before CNY I went for my routine gynae checkup. I'm expecting a baby boy again!! The boy gene is surely very strong in his family. Boy or girl, though girl is much preferred doesn't matter cos as ppl always say "As long as baby is healthy". I do hope mine is.. I've been very nottie, eating raw food at times I can't resist!! Haha

Chinese New Year 2011

Chinese New Year 2011 is gone with just a blink of an eye. Technically, it is still CNY as it is only the 7th day today..to me, as long as I started work, CNY is over for me.

This festive season is always fun during the preparatory stage and when it is the actual day, everyone just fall flat on their back - too tired, fatigue, hot weather! Kids will be the happiest because they will be receiving Ang Pows (red packets). Even Zach started saying "Give me ang pow" after his "Gong Xi Fa Cai"..arrggh..i m so 'paiseh' each time he said that cos that sounded so wrong! Luckily he only dared to say that to his grandpa (my dad)..lol

We resorted in giving him an empty red packet to hold
