End of Week 32 ... It's Week 33!

My dear Olympia, 
it's Halloween!
No, we are not celebrating it and we are not going for treats or tricks.
It's just a fun photo that mummy made.
And such coincidence that mummy decided to wear 
her Snoopy t-shirt and there are Snoopy stickers!

Papa has a precious off day today!
Friday - fifth week!
We went out for breakfast and after that decided 
to wash some of your clothes.
Hand-washed some, especially the reds and fushia pinks ...
Realised the colours did not run!
Means the next time, we can simply machine-wash them!

Check out your furry bro - Charcoal, guarding your clothes.
He really enjoyed that because he suntanned at the same time!
Your furry bro thinks he is a beach boy, 
I mean beach dog...
Always suntanning!

Will do one more round of clothes washing for you next week,
my dear Olympia!

Lots Love!

Mon - Wed of Week 32 with Olympia...

Monday 27/11
Hello, my dear Olympia ... 
How are you inside mummy?
I think the space is a big congested?
Hang in there, a couple more weeks to go!
After a 4-hour nap at Popo's house yesterday,
I couldn't sleep last night.
Chatted on Line with Auntie Mermaid for a while, 
shopped online for awhile,
Chatted with Auntie Zoelyn for almost 2h ...
Finally, I think I fell asleep before 3am.
I think the aching body contributed to the insomnia.
Mummy and Papa relaxed the morning away.
We had tea and watched drama as usual.
(I think this morning alone, 
Mummy watched 4 different drama series latest episodes.
Papa watched 飞虎2 with me)
And now, I'm so bored again.
Watching Catch-Up TV: 绝对Superstar.
It's not all play and no work.
I did prepare some updated materials for the jie jies and kor kors 
coming for the Secondary One Preparatory Classes.
In between, Mummy and Papa went out for lunch 
and some grocery shopping.
Wanted to buy the mattress for your cot
and playpen but could not decide on suitable ones yet.
Will get them these two weeks.
Mummy had her first coconut today.
Absolutely yummy!
At night, we were clearing out the storeroom and papa's office.
Threw some.
Sold some.
Make way for even more space in our house.

Tuesday 28/10

This is mummy's rest week and there is no lesson.
Papa went to the market as usual to buy mummy fresh food to cook.
Yesterday, mummy had grilled chicken, so today, 
I decided to cook the chicken drumstick in 
chicken broth and chicken essence.
Today was yet another simple and blissful day.
Papa and mummy went to Tesco to buy coconuts for Popo and mummy.
Also bought some stuff for you.
Spent the afternoon watching more drama series  and slacking away.
Chatted on Line with Auntie Chris and Auntie Carol for awhile.
Papa had two lessons today and I decided to follow him back to Estuary.
Mummy also swam and then we had dinner.
Ah Mah cooked dinner for us.
Of course, mummy had her daily dose of birds nest from Ah Mah too.

Oh yes!
Mummy received the tulle skirt she ordered yesterday! 
Absolutely loving it.
Perfect match for your skirt!
So excited.
Maybe we can wear this for CNY!

Wednesday 29/10
Mummy sent papa to the airport early this morning.
It's supposedly our monthly trip to make merit in Bangkok.
However, Olympia, you are growing much bigger 
(Well done! Good job and Keep it up!),
mummy could not fly with papa.
Off he went to make merit, conduct a lesson and shop for us! 
It's 10.52 a.m. now, mummy will be going shower and change 
so that we can meet you Godmama Ni for lunch soon!
Entry to be continued later! 

It's a whopping nine hours that mummy has been out!
Not really tired, maybe because the actual walking
and shopping is only about three hours?
Met your Godmama Ni at One Raffles Place for Paris Baguette.
You must be very excited to be kicking all the time
because you are with Godma.
See how pretty your Godma is!
We also shopped around a bit and Mummy bought 
you some white pieces.
Love them!

(Just now, Auntie Shar also bought you clothes, again!)
When Godma left, I shopped around a bit more before heading
to do my nails and lash extension.
You see, mummy is really a vain mummy :p

After these two appointments, 
Mummy was checking the phone and realised that
Auntie Marj, Shar, Daze & Irene were at Ikea!
Well, mummy decided to go join them!

It is always fun meeting up with mummy's friends!
You have been a good girl also.
You kicked and wriggled around as usual but you
did not cause too much uncomfy moments for mummy.
Good girl, Olympia!

Papa just messaged mummy.
He boarded the plane already.
He also bought a lot of things for you and for mummy!
Mummy just realised that actually I could have gone with papa!
However it was also good that I did not.
In Bkk, mummy won't be able to keep sitting and resting.
Any walk more than one hour makes mummy tired.

Mummy shall now watch drama and slack and unpack more shopping loot.
We will go to the airport after midnight to pick up papa.

Rest well for a while, Olympia,
before we head out again!

Lots Love.

Life of a Vain Mummy-to-Be for the Past 32 Weeks...

(Kind of a long post. Tried to categorise and paragraph properly
but it ended up like verbal vomit :p)

Good morning, Olympia.
You are in your 32nd Week today!
How fast time flies!
We will see you in about 6 weeks time.
I guess I'm still going to chill and relax 
(Auntie Shar doesn't like the word chillax - 
she said it's kind of ... I forgot that adjective)
because no matter how excited and nervous I am,
one will never be fully ready for a new journey in life.
So, we will all take it as it comes!
No point worrying and bothering excessively.
Life goes on and Life will always be great!
I hope you will grow up like Mummy, 
where you don't let insignificant people and comments bother you.
Or worry about being judged for what other people think they are doing right. 
( I waited till I'm quite old to realise this, hope you will acquire this earlier in life.)
We walk our path with a good conscience.
I also hope you will be like Papa,
who is a simple and hardworking man,
working hard and always motivated to soar to the next higher point.
Contentment is fine but we never give up trying to reach the next peak.

Mummy has been very blessed and very lucky to enjoy the pregnancy.
Thanks to you, my first trimester was simply sleepy, sleepy, sleepy!
You are such a good girl!
After which, the second trimester till now, 
Mummy has been enjoying her time with you, 
shopping (for you and myself, haha) , meeting up with friends,
watching drama whole day long (mummy even has a notebook to 
record the shows and episodes completed), more sleeping and just slacking.
I'm loving all the new clothes I have purchased but at the same time, 
I hope they will be too big for me when I give birth to you.
Mummy will work hard to lose the weight!
Of course, with a swim-director-Papa, Mummy tries to swim at least once a week too.
Papa says this is 胎教.
Mummy is also blessed with your ah gong, ah mah, gong gong and popo's love.
Also, all of mummy's family and friends' love.
SOOOOOOO much love.
I've never had so much birds' nests and cod fish in my life.
Haha. Papa has been very conscientiously buying me cod fish.
Ah Mah and Popo have been feeding me with birds' nest like every other day.
On a record breaking day, I had it thrice!
Breakfast at Ah Mah's place.
Lunch at Popo's place.
Supper at home.
Overwhelmed with birds' nest.
I hope you will benefit from all these good food!

Papa has also been very generous with Mummy shopping for you.
In fact when he went past Hermes, he asked for those cute booties for you.
Too bad there was no stock but luckily :p
Mummy bought them already!
I know people always tell me to buy something neutral that can be passed down
or not to buy so many designer pieces.
I still think I want the best for you.
And IF you do have a di di or mei mei, 
I will also make sure he or she have the same amount of NEW things.
Yes, there will definitely be hands-me-down however
Mummy will be fair too.
I also have said this many times, 
blessed you are to have the love of everyone 
with gifts of all sorts.
Remember to grow up thankful, 
very thankful.

The other day at Dr. Yang's, I asked if I can have eyelash extension on during delivery.
Haha. initially vain Mummy has already packed two sets of falsies into my delivery bag
(so that I'll look good in photos), but since permission is given for the extensions,
Let's Do It!
I've made two appointments. 
One will be next Friday (to look nice for the weddings I'll be attending
in the month of November).
One will be the end of November, to welcome you with my favourite
makeup-less but big eyes look!
We will all look nice in the photos.
Cutie you, wide-smile Papa and big-eyed Mummy!

See you real soon, Olympia.
Our family has been blessed and so, 
we must always be thankful and do good to the society.
Always remember to return to the society, Olympia.
Do it in your own way, within your means.
 There is a Chinese saying “取之社会,用之社会”. 
It means that you should remember to give back what you have 
taken or benefited from the society. 
Grow up well, Olympia.
We will try our best to educate you.

Lots Love.

Gynae Visit to See Olympia

Hello, Dear Olympia,
The visits to Dr. Yang have been scheduled every 2 weeks since the last visit, 
instead of every 4 weeks.
This means we'll be seeing you live, real soon.
Mummy wore a new dress today.
Last couple of weeks to wear this big dresses.
Then again, I'm always wearing big dresses.
Auntie Marian chose this for Mummy when Auntie Cyn took us to this shop
in Far East Plaza.
We waited quite a while at the clinic and so, 
Papa and I decided (no, rather I asked Papa) to take photos.
Mummy lost another kg (yeah!) with the strict diet,
so the nett gain for Mummy is now 6kg.
At the same time, no worries, you are 2.2kg and will be 32 weeks this Saturday.
Dr, Yang also said that by the end of Nov, she will be able to give a rough date of your delivery.
It will definitely be much earlier than the given EDD of Dec 20.

We headed to Thomson for lunch and of course Mummy had to stick to the healthy diet.
Well, I'm getting used to it.
As for you, please grow well and strong!

Lots Love, Muaks!

More new clothes for you, Olympia.

Hello, Olympia, 

It's Deepavali (Public Holiday)  today but both mummy and papa decided to teach because the exams are nearing for all your kor kors and jie jies and papa had some replacement classes to conduct. 

I know it's not your fault, but mummy is really feeling the backaches, rib pains and stuff. Well, Dr. Yang says it's absolutely normal. Please continue to flip, kick, swim, breakdance, whatever in me. Be active. We really can't wait to bring u for a swim. 

You are a very lucky and blessed girl to have all the aunties buying you tonnes of stuff all the time. Haha. Fashionista Auntie Shar is right on top of the chart. She keeps on buying clothes for you like how she kept on buying for Heather jie jie the last time. Lucky and blessed you are. 

Today, Auntie Jackie bought a dress from one of her favourite shops, which is also one of mummy's favourite! The dress is so me! I mean,  my style but for you. It's one of mummy's favourite colours, tutu style and bling bling! All rolled into one lovely dress! I'm sure you'll love it just like how mummy adores it. 

Papa and mummy will be visiting Dr. Yang tomorrow. See you during the scan. Please show us everything about you! 

Lots love. Muaks!

Eventful Weekend ...

Hello, Olympia! You are into the 31st week!
See you real soon!
Stay well and healthy :)

Attended Abel's Baby Shower in the early afternoon.

Welcome to the Devilz' Family, Abel!

Other Juniors!

Love the Polaroid that we took!
I think all three turned out nice!
Too bad Bucky wasn't with us.

Went to do some shopping and had dinner at Parkway Parade with parents.

After (to me) many days of wait, I finally receive the camera!
My TR35 is here!
More selfies!

TGIF... Celebrate in the Name of Audrey!

Didn't have to drive around yesterday.
Laogong drove me around :D
Wore my new Innit top...
In fact, there are still several new pieces of Innit unworn.
Shall wear them all!

We picked Shar up and headed to check in at Novetel.
Thanks to Daze to the room.
I quickly did up the mini candy buffet for Audrey.
Marj and Ja arrived and we went to Liang Court for more shopping of food and snacks!

Slacked in the room till dinner time and we headed to Mad for Garlic.

Left early at 9pm.
Olympia was telling me she is tired.
Hehe ...
Great time out with the gals even though I skipped F&K with them.

Eating Healthily for Olympia (and myself)

Glad to find the Pacific Chicken Broth.
Solved a lot of hassle and saved a lot of time!
Decided to use the broth and Essence of Chicken to cook the chicken.
Laogong has been going to the market diligently to buy me fresh chicken, salmon and cod fish.
They are mainly my staples now.

Based on instincts, haha, I added the broth and two bottles of essence.
Boiled it and then simmered it for about 15 minutes.
The smell was very good.
This method is really hassle-free!
I don't even have to season / marinate the chicken.
While simmering it, the chicken will absorb the taste of the broth and the essence.

Simple low carbohydrate dish.
Think the highest sugar content dish is the apple!
I didn't eat the whole apple.
Hehe, I have a third of it to Charcoal.
And to aid in my burping (I don't know how to burp!),
Perrier is a good friend.
Carbonated and no sugar.
Ended the meal with a pot of decaf tea
while watching my drama series.
Safe for pregnancy.
If not for Olympia, I'll still be eating unhealthily.
Well, good that I am eating healthily, losing weight while being pregnant,
baby gaining weight still.
Shall attempt to keep to this healthy diet after confinement!

More of your things, Olympia!

1. Your playpen is ready in our SA home! It's so pink! I 's currently in our bedroom but we'll pinkify your room soon! Need to get that Queen size Hello Kitty covers and stuff. Oh yes, we also need to set up and do up your cot in Estuary.

2. Papa woke up from his nap (he had a bad headache) at 2300 and insisted on fixing up your pp even though I asked him to continue sleeping. 

3. Today, Papa was also happy to find you The Chair! We both had that when we're young. Kind of surprise to know it cost so much but well,  it's handmade and most importantly, it's for you! 

4. I bought Papa a magnet. I'm sure he'll be your First Love :)  He sure is going to dote on you!
