This and that

I always wanted to blog but time is really not enough. My son needs my attention all the time. Well that's life as a full time mummy....

Anyway, time to update about my naughty son. I mentioned I wanted to create a blog for Aden but I really don't have the time now, but nevermind, this blog of mine will always be here and he is able to read it when he grows up, haha!

Playgym from my friend Annie, I received it even before Aden was born. We put him in it and in the beginning, he wasn't really interested. May be some times later.......

We already brought Aden out many times, don't know why he seems to fall asleep in his seat, regardless of the noise or weather. But it's a good thing at least we don't need to entertain him.........

Do I still look good? Haha :P
Oh ya some of my friends commented that Aden looks more like his dad now, really meh?

He can now turn his body to the side and on his tummy, but he doesn't know how to turn back on his back, yet. Sometimes he'll fatt mang zhang after few tries and cry for helps, haha!

Just think this photo of him looks like girl girl ;)

Bought him some baby rattles and he's only interested in them for the first few minutes... To him, his burger fingers is still the best! But I am not giving up, giving him toys and let him touch can stimulate his sense of touching =)

The Bumbo baby sitter I ordered online arrived last 2 weeks. It helps alot as we don't need to carry him all the time, he enjoys his VIP seat very much. But of course we never leave him unattended even though he is sitting nicely on it.

My happy boy whenever he finishes his nen nen. He is now 3 months and 3 weeks, how time flies!

 He loves to exercise now....

Hubby and I went for a short trip to KL during the Raya holidays. We din't bring Aden along as it's a long journey for a 3 months-old, plus it's the Ghost month now, we avoid bringing him out especially at nights. So he was at home with my MIL and SIL.
It was my first time not seeing him for 2 days (32 hours to be exact) and I missed him so much!

Saw this Candylicious at 1U and I know Aden is going to love it when he grows up, haha!

Wanted to try 许留山and 糖百府 dessert after so many tempting reviews from bloggers, too bad they were very crowded, so we ended up eating at Meet Fresh (鲜芋仙). No wonder it wasn't crowded, cause it is only so so..... =_=

Lunch at Italiannies, I actually like this place ;)

Managed to grab some clothes, but most of them is for Aden, well it's expected, when we have kids, we are not the priority anymore.

Just to share my most satisfied shopping loot, it's a baby care cart for Aden. Finally something nice and not so space consuming to keep Aden's clothes! Well I think it can be used for quite some times, at least we don't have to custom make a closet for him for the time being.

Opps, I actually have another satisfied buys, brand new Lumix GF5. Blame it on the TV advertisement la, it says 'For every photonista' and I think it's very attractive :P
I admit I am a slave of camera, now I have 5 cameras included the DSLR (but am selling the DSLR).
Ok, actually the purpose of buying this is to shoot more of Aden and for our year end trip later ^^

Alright, I am feeling better now at least I managed to write another post before September comes.

Til then, good night y'all!

The Expendables 2 (2012)

Image from HERE

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jet Li, Van Damme

Hubby and I have been anticipating this movie for so long! Astro had replayed the first installment on and off and this made me even more excited to watch the second ones. Finally we had our movie date with Mr Stallone last Friday =)

As expected, this movie is no dissappoinment! Besides the previous super stars, Van Damme (as the super bad guy) and Liam Hemsworth (Bill the kid) are the new face in this movie. The actress, Nan Yu (as Maggie) is the only lady in the team, but to be honest, I'd prefer if someone more attractive else replaces her character, then it'll be more interesting, hehe..

Basically the storyline is pretty much the same as the first installment - to revenge and fight against the bad guys. But no single moment is boring, in fact there're some hilarious parts which I really like! And similar to the first episode, there're many bloody scenes and guns shooting.

I really enjoy watching all the big guys especially Sylvester Stallone, he's looking very muscular and strong despite his age. But one thing which surprise me is that Jet Li only appear in the beginning of the movie... How come?

Anyway, it's a nice movie which I think worth watching =)

Rating: 4.5/5

I reported the failure twice and problem only resolved today, good job to S******x!

Anyway, I hope you guys had a great holidays. I went for a short trip to KL with hubby while Aden was at home with MIL and SIL. I miss him but I enjoyed the shopping marathon which I have not done for some times already.... Managed to grab things I wanted too.

Shall write a proper update soon so please bear with me =)

17th August 9 years ago...

.. was the date when hubby and I dated for the first time ^^ Lazy to upload more photos so just one here will do.

 Photo taken in Aug 2003 at Genting, our first outstation trip.

See how 'young' we were! Haha :D Sometimes really cannot tahan but to laugh when I looked back at our 'old school' photos, very cincai in wearing and still makeup-less. But I kinda miss my long straight hair back then.. And I certainly looked much slimmer, haha!

We dint really celebrate this date for the passed few years. I think this is just a 'normal' anniversary which doesnt need to be so grandly celebrated. As long as we remember this date in our hearts, right?
*Edited: Anyway, we have a movie date with Mr Sylvester Stallone tonight ;) *

From 2 of us, to 2 families( mine and in laws) and now, our humble family of 3 with Aden, I wanna say thank you hubby for everything you've done!
I love you and I know you too, kekekek :P

Happy 'paktor' anniversary darling!

p/s: Wishing all of you happy holidays! Drive safe on the road....

No money no talk

Ever since the arrival of Aden, we've spent quite alot of money on his clothes, diapers, formula milk, toys, stroller, bedding, baby bottles, monthly check-up and medication and etc etc... In fact, money already spent when I got pregnant (tried to give him the best when he was still in my womb ^^)

What I wanna say is baby stuff is really not cheap at all these days. I only got abit hands-me-down from friends so we have to buy most of the stuff. They say baby doesnt need much clothing as they grow up very fast but, how can you resist from buying? Baby clothes are so so cute! Especially the girl ones... hehe.

One thing we need to spend for sure is the formula milk, I think that's the most expensive thing. Aden is taking Dumex formula milk and a tin of 1.5kg cost about RM 120. He finishes a tin in about 2 weeks time =_= I think that's why breastfeeding is greatly encouraged, and that's also one of the reason I am still giving him breast milk, though not every meal.

Hubby and I are planning to open a bank saving account for Aden soon, I think it's good so that the money can be used in the future. I think very soon, we'll have to settle for his education, haha =D I'm not sure but my aunty actually told me to get Aden register in school earlier as this is the year of Dragon, many Dragon kids are expected. To me this seems like few more years to go and I don't see the need of it. I even thought may be she is abit exaggerate, but erm...... Let's not bother about it now, afterall Aden is only 3 months plus now ^_*

But anyway, I am thankful that we dont have to worry so much about financial for Aden. Of course I am trying not to over spoilt even though he is the first child. I believe early education is important =)

It has been 3 months

My naughty boy is 3 months old today!! ^^
Time flies even though I am doing the same thing everyday.. Feed him, bath him, play with him, put him to sleep and the list goes on.........
Well, life a mother................... ;)

Brought Aden for his 2nd DPT/HiB Polio injection yesterday and he only cried a while.. Good boy!
He is now 6kg and 62cm tall.

Apparently he has quite tanned skin compared to most babies at the same age, I don't think this will change anyway...... But nevermind, since he's a boy it's ok to have tanned skin, LOL!
And many commented he looks more like me at the moment, haha I am very pleased when I hear it ^^
(I mean hey, I carried him for 9 months+ and went through the labor pain for 7-8 hours to give birth to him!)

Despite the tiredness of looking after him, and the lack of sleeps, I am still pretty enjoy life as a mother. Its amazing how much Aden has grown since day one and I love taking photos of him and record his daily behaviours. I even thought of creating a blog for him but time doesn't allow right now, may be some times later.

Shall write a more proper updates very soon!

Those big changes

Happy mid week everyone! =)

Aden is turning 3 months old next week, how time flies right? This also means it's almost 3 months after I gave birth, looking good and losing weight are my main concern now.
Speaking of losing weight, I have lost about 11kg up til today, I still need to shed off 5kg to go back to pre pregnancy weight.
11kg might sounds alot but stubborn fats are still here on my tummy, thighs and hips, they are super difficult to be shedded off! >=(
But I wont give up la! So I get myself the following items to help me...

Body Sculptor Shower Gel from Alqvimia, Julia's Shape Oil, leopard print body shapewear, Julian Jill  Velcro belt, and the white belly belt (only wear it during my confinement). Besides all these, I already finished 2 bottles of slimming cream for my urut session during confinement.

Apart from the weight issue, hair lost is another big change I noticed ever since delivery =_= I actually planning to color my hair this month but I think I'll have to postpone the plan. I have no idea how serious the situation will get, but I have the following items to help me as much as possible.

Black sesame powder (recommended by other mummies), energy shampoo for postnatal and hair tonic liquid.

Last but not least, I got myself a new spec, I do think it looks better than the previos one ^^

What do you think? ;)
