我和Aden的第一个生日/My first birthday with Aden

(This year's birthday was way simpler than last year's. I remembered I celebrated my birthday with the BDS gang last year, cause so coincident it was my best friend, Annie's wedding day! Time flies and a year gone, I also gave birth to my son already)

今年生日,我没收到任何礼物 T___________T
(This year, I did not receive any presents. May be because I din't ask? LOL!)

(But it doesn't matter, I am thankful enough to receive lots of birthday wishes thru phones and FB from dearest family and friends. Most importantly, I have my son celebrated my 28th birthday this year. According to the lunar calendar, I am actually 29 this year. But I always use my birthday month to calculate my actual age.)

说到礼物,如果问我今年要什么礼物,我会想要一个长假!自从做了妈妈这份工,虽然没有好像以前那份工的压力,不过妈妈也有说不完的累和辛苦。虽说我每天在家顾孩子,不用出外晒太阳或淋雨,不过有时也很闷的。尤其是当Aden发少爷脾气时,怎样哄都搞不定!真是pek chek啊!当然他现在渐渐长大了,比较好顾了,不过他长大了,又是要面临另一个阶段的挑战了!
我终于明白为什么有些朋友当了妈妈后,整个人变憔悴,样子也变‘惨’。。。不过我尽量不给自己变酱啦!哈哈,我要做靓妈! ;)
(Speaking of presents, ask me what I want as present this year and I'd say I want a longgg holiday! Ever since becoming a mum, I am really exhausted and tired, though I've already say goodbye to the terrible pressure in my previous job. And even though I am at home all day looking after my son, it can get boring and frustrating at times. Especially when Aden is throwing tantrum and I couldn't calm him down.  Now that he's growing up and is easier to look after, but it's time for me to face another stage of challenge!
Now that I understand why some mummy friends of mine become haggard. But I will do my best to avoid from falling into this group, haha! I still wanna be a pretty super mum!)

Anyway今年的礼物要等到下个月才能‘拿到’。下个月会和老公出国,这次是到一个我从来没有想过会去的地方,因为之前听说要出Visa很麻烦。好不卖官子啦,就在这告诉大家,我们会去加拿大的多伦多和美国. 不过美国方面就会去纽约和华盛顿罢了(好过没有啦!)到时再来个shopping spree,选礼物!^^
(Ok I know I've drifted apart :P Anyway, I gotto wait til next month to receive my actual birthday present. Will be travelling with hubby to a country which I never thought I'd be going as I heard it's kinda troublesome to get a Visa there. But things changed abit now and we're going to Toronto[Uncle Lee here I come! ^^] and US, erm it's New York and Washington D.C to be exact. I am looking forward to the shopping spree there to redeem my birthday pressie! ^^)

Ok back to the topic! 生日当晚老公带了我们去Secret Recipe,其实是我自己选的,不懂为什么就是很想吃他们的蛋糕~ 再加上其实太平没什么特别的地方可以庆祝,所以没关系啦,好坏也是一餐。我对于吃很cincai,不嘴叼。
(Alright back to the topic! Hubby brought us to Secret Recipe that day, my choice, cause I was craving for their cakes. Furthermore, there's no special places to go here at Taiping.)

 我点了个Black Pepper Chicken,老公呢就要tomyam。至于蛋糕,我选了marble cheesecake和Turkey Chocolate Indulgence。两样都很好吃!
(I had Black Pepper Chicken while hubby had tomyam. I chosed marble cheesecake and Turkey Chocolate Indulgence as dessert and both tasted great!)

(My darlings. I am always the camera lady hence you seldom see me in the photos. Well I guess I am just doing what I like the most :P)

(If you are my friends in FB, I mentioned that Aden woke up extra early this day and he din't nap much in the afternoon, so he was quite fussy during the night. Obviously we din't get a proper family portrait, even the shop staff commented Aden is a crying machine)

(Hubby was eating while I coax Aden to sleep. Many times mummies are the one who deal with cranky babies when going out while the daddy still get to enjoy like usual. Sometimes I wonder why is it so unfair since we are both the parents of the baby? But on second thought, at least I am close to my son this way, haha)

抱了一下,Aden就入睡了。这就是Oppa Aden Style,哈哈!:D
(Aden slept in his stroller shortly after. This is what I called Oppa Aden Style! :D)

(Obviously there's nothing luxury this time, but I am contented to be able to celebrate with my loved ones.)

p/s: 心血来潮来个双语帖子,没什么的。。SK,我不是copy你啊!:P
(I have made it a dual language post today just for fun ;) I am not copying you SK! :P)

  23. When Ethan was that young, we did not even celebrate our birthday out as yeah, they can get cranky kan?

    Happy Birthday pretty mommy :D

  24. I understand how you feel. It is really exhausted to take care of your child on our own, and we always longs for a holiday or a short escape to somewhere. But being parents is rewarding at the same time when you seem them growing up health, and started to picking up skills, or start babbling your names. You are always a pretty mum!

  25. Happy belated birthday Hayley. More birthdays to celebrate with Aden. :)

  26. Belated Birthday wishes to you, Hayley! May you have many many more with Aden, and many many more with your love ones... maybe another addition next year :p *run fast*

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

Hi world! It's been a while! Hope you are doing fine! ;)
Life is busy as usual, and extremely tired lately due to the crazy weather and sick bugs came visited me :( 
Got to sleep soon, just wanna come in here to make my blog a bit alive, haha!
Take care and have a nice week ahead!

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…
