But the other day I read an article in a local newspaper about the do's and don'ts during this festival, I found it very interesting and I wanna share it here (May be some of you had read about it too). It doesn't matter if you are not a superstitious person, no harm reading them to enhance knowledge, right? ;)
- Do pray the Tu Di Gong (土地公) first at the cemetery.
- Avoid stepping on other 'homes' (But sometimes it's unavoidable right? Especially when that area is crowded)
- Do not walk bare footed because it'd bring unwanted spirit home.
- If you hear chinese scripture (经文), try to leave the cemetery asap because some scripture are not meant for us.
- Eat a red egg on the spot to represent new life (新生).
- Tap away the sands underneath your shoes before leaving.
- All praying must be done before 3pm.
Thank you for reading and have a nice day ahead!!

All you need are honey, oatmeal and plain yogurt.
Step 1. Measure 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt into a small bowl to form the base of the mask. Cook 1 tablespoon of plain oatmeal. Once it’s cool down add it to your yogurt base. The oatmeal acts as a natural moisturizing ingredient.
Step 2. Add one tablespoon of honey and mix all ingredients well. The honey will act as a moisturizing ingredient and help thicken the mixture. Apply to your face immediately and leave for 20 to 30 minutes.
Step 3. Wash away the mask with luke water. Apply moisturizer onto clean skin to ensure your skin moist is lock in. Repeat this mask twice a week and see the difference.
This is the first time I'm doing this mask and have yet to see significant results, but I do feel that the skin feels smoother and more delicate after the mask is wash away. Mums-to-be also need to feel beautiful inside out :P
Why not you try it and share with me the results? ;)

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....

Time to indulge in something you like...
I've just back from a relaxing manicure and pedicure session, and my hands and legs smell good with OPI moisturising lotion! ;)
No nail polish for me though, just buff and spa, cause I'm having difficulty reaching to my toes nails, haha ;)
Mums-to-be also have the privilege to relax and chill, I reckon relaxing moments like this will somehow
And by the way, the tart and fruits are my tea break today.
Went for a check up this morning and thank God, doctor said everything is fine and baby is healthy too! (But I forgot to ask about baby's weight... *slap forehead*)
Probably not updating this weekend, so wishing you folks a great and safe weekend ahead! ^_*

I read a beauty tip from a local newspaper the other day, by using honey and facial cleanser and it would prevent the annoying blackheads! This is so easy and cheap!
I've been doing it for the passed few days and though no significant results are shown, I do feel my nose is smoother than before. Will continue this method and share with you guys if it works! (Just rub a little bit of honey and facial cleanser on the nose every morning and night)
I also googled other benefits of honey and here are some:
-It is a natural energy of carbohydrates.
-It is a natural moisturisers to our skin in general.
-It is a natural cough suppressant and sooth the throat.
-It ease the mind after a night of excessive alcohol.
*More information H.E.R.E*

I've lost the mood to blog (again), plus internet line these few days is bad I really lost the patience!
I'm doing great so far, will be going for another check up this coming Friday and hopefully to receive good news from the doctor!
By the way, I apologise, this is another pregnancy updates of mine cause nothing else is more interesting in my life so far, haha. Hope you won't feel boring! :P
I've been having alot of weird and funny dreams lately, probably about 3 dreams per night? Every dream is short cause I just need to wake up for bathroom trip. People say dreams represent something in real life, I've try googling for dream analysis but it doesn't explain much, guess my kind of dreams are just too weird, LOL.
I am planning for a maternity photo shooting probably within these 2 weeks, since my friend who is a freelance photographer is available. Cannot wait for the photo shooting cause it's my favourite thing to do! But not for hubby, he is not into camera but he promised to accompany me for the whole process. Thank you love! ;)
I have frequent leg cramps at night recently and sometimes it really wakes me up. The calves muscle feels pain the next day, and takes about 2 days to 'recover' :(
As mentioned, my baby is kicking and rolling hard and sometimes he strenches so hard I have to sit down and bend my waist. Also I can see a bulge when I'm lucky ;) He is getting super active at night, I think he will be the same when he comes to this world...
Many have been asking me, natural birth or C-sec? Well of course everyone prefer natural birth including me! I wanna go for natural birth but that also depends on alot of factors. Just not thinking too much first, time will tell....

Feeling excited and nervous at the same time!
Hubby and I are slowly getting things ready, what we need most right now is a cabinet for our prince. We've been searching at Ikea during the recent KL trip but to no avail, so we decided to custom make a baby closet, I am still thinking about the design though.
Image taken from here
I'm so in love with such concept! Too bad there's not enough space in our room already, being occupied by both hubby and my closet :P Plus, we still need space to put the playpen and baby crib and other stuff, so probably something simple will do
I've also started to soak and wash the baby clothes/cloth diapers/socks/bibs/mittens/bedding sets and etc. It's funny how I love watching these hanging at the balcony, cause they are just so cute!! (Sorry, I guess that's how a first-time mummy feels)
As baby bump is getting bigger, I find myself having difficulties squatting or sitting on the floor as well as getting up, even when I do my laundry =_= And online source is true about clumsiness during pregnancy, I really feel clumsy these days. I also read that, pregnant lady should reduce time of driving alone =_=
Went for another check up last week and doctor told me baby's head is finally down ;) I've been talking and singing to my baby everyday, and he's really behaving well! He kicks and strenches real hard whenever I call his name or when I rub my tummy. And sometimes when the kick hurts, I told him to be gentle and 'sayang' mummy, somehow he understands! He is truly mummy's boy! ;)
Baby bump at about 30 weeks. I've gained about 11kg so far
I love recording these in my blog and I hope you enjoy reading too!
Darling baby, mummy loves you! ^^

I've seen so many cute and pretty baby dresses, hair accesories, shoes and etc etc. But for boy, choices are always limited.
But, thinking at the bright side, having a baby boy means save more money and less headaches on which one to choose, LOL.
My friend said to me 'Nevermind, aim for a baby girl next ;)' LOL, I'm not thinking that further yet!
Just to share what I've got for my prince lately:

GPS managed to bring us there but unfortunately, it opens at 6pm and it was only 4pm when we reached.
So we settled our late lunch at Laut Villa restaurant, which is also nearby. Fyi, there're a whole strench of seafood restaurants at Kampung Cina and almost all are full.

To see how attractive it is, friends and I paid a visit there yesterday.
Weather was nice along the way but......
The famous Gong Pian selling at RM 1.50 per piece, inside are the yummy char siew filling
Saturday, March 10, 2012
This morning I woke up early just to make a trip there, because my friend told me there's a stall selling cute baby socks.
Din't know what to eat then, until I saw an Indian uncle selling this on his bike....................

My brother has the habits to send a postcard back to home for mum and dad whenever he travels oversea. I did that too for a few times, and will continue to do that if time permits and if I manage to find a nearby post office (because I usually follow tours and it's quite rush).
Of course the postcard take weeks to reach, so usually we are already back home when the postcard finally reaches. It's like sending a letter/postcard to ourselves and it feels good! Muahaha :D
Do you love collecting postcards?

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 ^^

We reached quite early and there were already crowds... and 90% of the ladies that day are pregnant, LOL.
We managed to buy some stuff for our prince.

Starring: Alex Veadov, Roselyn Sanchez, Nestor Serrano
This is a real life story on a group of Navy SEALS, and on how they rescue a CIA agent who has been kidnapped by terrorists.
The beginning of the movie is abit boring to me as there are quite alot of talking. But the plot gets more exciting towards the middle and the end. Overall, it's a so-so movie to me, but hubby likes it as he likes to watch this kind of movies.
Personal rating: 3/5
