A little note to myself (Part II)

*Part I is here*

Just a little recent updates in case you miss me ;)

1. They say hair glows during pregnancy. I do feel my hair grows faster and thicker, but definetely not smoother. I see split ends and my hair ends are dry.

2. Doctor check up has changed from once every month to once every 2 weeks. Besides, I went to the government clinic for the first time last week. Spent 3 hours there, did twice the urine tests and twice the blood test, and the nurse left 3 holes on both my arms >.<

Having said this, I'm terrified going to the government clinic.

3. Baby bump is getting bigger and bathroom trip is becoming more and more frequent too. But I still manage to go here and there, just to be extra careful for my own safety. Instead of people making ways to pregnant ladies like me, I chose to give way, cause I realise Taiping people are harsh. And I keep reminding myself 'Don't expect people to give ways even though you're pregnant!'

4. Life these days is mostly about eat and sleep. Hubby restrict certain activities like doing house chores or going anywhere alone. But, I still carry on like usual. LOL.

5. But I listen to the elderly, like don't use scissors on the bed, don't simply carry other babies, no lifting heavy stuffs or climbing and etc. I even heard other weird pantang larang like don't change bedsheets on my own (which I don't know why). Actually I think there're lots of chinese do's and don'ts during pregnany, but it's impossible to follow all of them, right?

6. Last but not least, I'm entering 3rd trimester (30 weeks to be exact) and have gained about 12kg so far. Baby is practising his kung fu kicks everyday, even now while I'm blogging this, and I'm enjoying every single moments ^^


  1. Yeah.. do miss u a lot. ^^ Glad that everything were fine and I felt excited for the "kung fu kick" too LOL.

  2. yeah, i think it's wise to give way rather than to wait for people to give you way, this is safer.. and why cannot change bedsheet?? OMG, then it will be very dirty and smelly!! @_@

  3. Well, Hayley mummy enjoy your pregnancy while you can!

  4. My, my, you are enjoying your siu nai-nai life to the fullest XD

    That's all you need to grow a happy baby.

  5. Is it true that you needed to give way instead of others? I still remember mine did have a lot of privileges. When I queued up for food, I was given higher priority by the hawker. I guess it is depended of the maturity of people and not the place.

  6. Hi Hayley, so sorry for not keeping up with your blog for quite some time.....been very caught up with work thus leaving very little time for blogging activities.

    Wow, when I realize you are now 30 weeks pregnant, then do I realize how time flies becos the last time I visited your blog, you were not yet pregnant. Congratulations to know about the good news! Have you already known whether it's a boy or girl? Stay careful of your surroundings ya since your baby bump is big already. I agree with you about giving way to others especially when moving around in places with a lot of people becos of this philosophy - "you can't change others, but you can change yourself". But I do agree with Sheoh Yan when it comes to queuing up....pregnant ladies 'always' have the 'right' to demand to have their turns first! ^_^ Anyway, people will usually give in to a pregnant lady becos they are afraid to be seen as an inconsiderate person. ^_^

  7. 30 weeks of pregnant, sound so fast wor. 10 more weeks to go to meet your dragon prince. Wish you smooth pregnancy and delivery.

  8. It's nice to record all these tiny things.

    I went to Taiping on Sunday with my friends, jus to visit the zoo hahaha.

  9. Hahahah, about 10 weeks to go before the wonderful baby comes out,, just relax,chill,stay away from smokers,keep calm, do some breathing exercises,, (breathe in thru nose,hold it for a while then exhale)keep humming your favorite songs (the happy ones, not the sad sad ones)keep stroking your baby and keep visualizing that this "child" will be great and wonderful,,

    most of all,just enjoy your pregnancy ya,,,,, happy for ya,,, must give me ang ku kueh in due time ya?

  10. Glad to hear that you are enjoying your pregnancy. Doing some light exercises daily is good for your overall health too... like walking.

  11. Congratulations, Hayley! Great to hear that you enjoy your pregnancy. Do try to relax more. Try to eat lady fingers before delivery because I heard people said this will help in smooth delivery and also reduce chances your baby to get jaundice. I am so happy for you going to be mother soon. :)

  12. 啊!好感动,都是我的感想我的感觉,妈咪万岁,hayley你要加油 =)
    你照顾得很好,我慢你两个星期, 肚子比拟的大了,哈哈。现在重10~11kg,要好好control >__<

  13. wow seems like . . . you are more stress than me :X

    take care aite :)

    And I believe lots of March Baby coz one of my friend is end of this month, yours coming soon? :)

  14. SK, LOL... it's not to change bedsheet on my own (meaning asking someone else to help), not that I can't change it forever! :P

    Yan, I don't always wait for people to give ways, though some people actually do that.

    Alice Phua, it's a boy ;)

    YT, oh really! Hope you enjoyed the trip.

    Eugene, haha ok, but I don't deliver to Penang *blek*

    珊姑娘, 谢谢!你也要加油哦!
    嗯,你的肚子的确很大了,而且*ehem*还很丰满呢 :P

    Kian Fai, my EDD is end of May ^^

  15. The last trimester, getting everything ready for the arrival of baby. heheh! You never know when he is going to come out. ;p

    I been to government and private during my 1st pregnancy, but for 2nd baby, i just go to private clinic. Suppose to go for natural in my 1st pregnancy but ended up go for caesarian.

    And I like it when I was pregnant that people gave way to me and also help to pump the petrol for me instead of me doing those pumping. ;p

  16. Ahhh.. u making me miss the kung fu kicking days in my tummy! Time to get pregnant again! haha..

  17. Rose, yep! Getting things ready for my prince is exciting! ;)

    Merryn, haha ya, time to get Ethan a brother/sister ^^

  18. Hi Hayley, I'm glad to hear that you are doing fine. Do enjoy your pregnancy and remember to take good care of yourself.

  19. So charm... 3 holes on ur arm...
    But I tot those nurses in gov hospital is very professional..

  20. Pregnancy moments is always the best....I miss that moments whereby baby kicking my tummy.

  21. Simple Person, depends, some are just trainees...

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~


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…

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…
