Eating style

People said appetite and taste bud change during pregnancy and for me, my taste bud is pretty much the same compared to before.

I still love Japanese food like sushi, except for raw stuff like sashimi which I don't eat all this while. Been eating Japanese food quite a few times already since pregnant (but choices are limited at my hometown), hoping to train the little one inside to love it as well, so that next time his dad will have no excuse to not bring us to Japanese restaurant, wakakak.... *grin*

And don't mind trying western food once a while (though they can be quite heaty and fattening), I always pick fish or chicken cause I believe they are healthier.. and I don't eat lamb or steak but my hubs love them~

I'm still a rice lover! And will request for additional sambal whenever available, my love for spicy food increases during pregnancy like tomyam, laksa and curry! But I try to control these intake cause too much spiciness is not good for the baby, I heard....

Of course, desserts like these never fail to make me happy! ;D (Especially during hot days!)

And once again, I do cut down on icy stuff during pregnancy cause obviously too much is no good too, though doctor said I can eat whatever I can. But for chinese sensei, icy stuff is a big nono!

Besides, I sort of given up ice cream (it's my all time favourite) since preggie. But I'm looking forward to the day when I can indulge in ice cream again ^^

To all mummies out there, does your taste bud changes alot during pregnancy? Do share with me ;)


  1. good that you maintain your eating habit.. and eat more to give your little one more energy, haha!!

  2. Hi Hayley, for some reason or other I've never gone for Japanese food. All the years maybe 5 times....but had no choice when on business trips in Japan.
    Have a nice day.

  3. Good lah eat Japanese good for baby brain development....

  4. I was lucky that I don't have cravings during my pregnancy. I still eat as usual BUT I totally switched OFF radio, tv and newspaper during pregnant. I dunno why. I get 'sick' when I see those..

  5. Baby definitely will follow his or her mummy's taste bud...Most of them...My two preggy period does have a big diff. Calvin time i love meat n doesn't like sweet stuff. Hebe time i love more veggie and salad intake. It is totally out of our control.

  6. The dessert is very colourful.


  7. sushi is healthy :) but no cold and raw ones ya

  8. I think my appetite was the same in both pregnancies. Just that I enjoyed eating laksa, curry and nasi lemak (all spicy food) more when I was preggie. hehehe!

  9. Nope my taste bud still the same although I was pregnant. Enjoy your meal now... later during confinement you have less variety food to eat.

  10. wa Hayley, so much food ah? you mean you have being eating so much even before you were pregnant? lol

  11. i saw ur maternity photos tru FB .. wow ... beautiful :)

  12. 我是很多食物都可以接受都可以尝试的人,所以怀孕后口味也改变不大,基本上吃的东西都一样,也没有特别区尝试新食物。但是就是会突然想吃一样东西时就特别的想吃,哈哈。

  13. Have everything in moderation, that's the key :)

    But hey, I enjoyed my ice cream the most during my pregnancy especially when there's no fear of getting fat, muahahaha!

  14. Ice cream should be fine. 1 or 2 scoops of ice cream is not a big deal. You should restrict yourself from eating. Remember, mummy is happy, baby is happy too.

  15. Oh I am so hungry ~
    hahahah ~~~ a mummy love this all in pregnant period ~ all about eat!

  16. My eating habit is unstable although I'm not pregnant. Haha!

  17. I read your profile, you was in the communications or media industry? I was in the media industry too, are you referring to advertising? Can tell me more?

  18. I read your profile, you was in the communications or media industry? I was in the media industry too, are you referring to advertising? Can tell me more?

  19. eat everything regularly and try to avoid some food which is pregnant lady forbid to eat lol

    anyways. I am hungry on 3am now LOL :X

  20. I always wonder if I would crave for sashimi or not when I'm pregnant cos it's my favourite food but pregnant women are not supposed to eat them... Hehehehehe...
    Anywayz, reading your blog about pregnancy makes me feel so warm cos you seems to be so happy about it! :)

  21. I did not have any special cravings during my pregnancy too. Just ate the normal stuff minus those cooling fruits and icy drinks but during my 8th month, I ate a lot of ice-cream! :)

  22. Libby, that was last year, now no more ;)

    Thanks all for sharing!

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
