Bye, my great 2012

Today we say goodbye to 2012 and when the clock strikes 12 tonight, we welcome the brand new 2013.

On the last few days of every year, my usual practice is to do a quick recap of some memorable events that happened throughout the year. So I am not going to miss it this year.

Here are some special and memorable events of my 2012:

- Announced my baby gender to everyone
- Second year in giving ang pao, spent my CNY with my 6 months-old baby bump

-Started to count down to my EDD
- First visit to Kuala Selangor

- First visit to Sitiawan
- Went for my maternity outdoor shooting

- Short trip to Penang with friends
- Started packing for my delivery 


- Enjoying my confinement moment
- Aden's fullmoon and I was officially released from jail ^^

- Started my life as a stay at home mum and handling my baby all by myself

- Short trip to KL without Aden

- Saliva collection ritual for Aden

- My first birthday with Aden

- Year end vacation to Canada and US
- Participated in Whitesoot blogger circle
- Aden's first solid experience

- Aden's first baby gathering
- Everybody survived the so called 21st doomsday!

Of course the most amazing thing that happens this year is the arrival of my son, and also carrying the title stay-at-home-mum.
Overall 2012 has been quite fruitful for me and I am enjoying every single seconds despite all the tiredness. I hope you had a great 2012 too!

Here, wishing all my lovely readers a happier, greater and healthier 2013!
Have fun tonight! <3

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…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)

Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
