The mid-week point forms

1. So it's the 14th day since new year but life is like usual to me. Got to pay attention to my online business and look after Aden as usual, but at the same time doctor advised me to rest as much as possible. Very difficult to carry out the latter action but for the baby and myself, I know I have to rest a lot also. Thank God I got helping hands which is my mum and the in laws. 

2. I miss baking and Yoga lessons. Guess I can only resume baking and attending Yoga classes months later (that also depends on if I have the time >.<) I foresee this year is gonna be busy for me, and I will become one hectic aunty, LOL! But I do hope I will have at least some extra time to come and update my blog. 

3. CNY is coming within a month but there's nothing exciting for me, we cannot 'celebrate' yet due to grandma's passing 2 years ago (the Chinese pantang larang ritual). I din't really shop much and in fact I think I can just skip the CNY shopping this year ;) 

4. Aden is currently 2years 8months young and he will be attending Montessori school next month, while I am currently 23 weeks pregnant. Sure not easy to be pregnant while looking after an active toddler but I think I can do it ;)

That's all I can think of now. Thanks for reading my random notes and I wish you all a happy Wednesday!

  6. Most importantly, take good care of yourself. So long your mourning period? Anyway, in your condition, just let it pass - go somewhere nice and quiet and rest and relax. Hassle-free, get away from it all - much better that way.

  7. I am very surprised that your family still observe this customs of respect for mourning that long and not to celebrate the CNY. This is really very good for the family and I do believe this is important for the departed souls but many people have changed. My friend's family was terrible cos they all immediately wore red clothes right after cremating their father. Adoi!!!

    1. TM, just some sharing, my relatives (my father side), some of them, they are Catholic, as for me, i'm a Christian, as when my grandfather passed away in the year 2003, we still gather at my Uncle place during the year 2004 CNY to celebrate CNY...

  10. hahaha!! "Hayley the Hectic Aunty" so funny but I like this title, hehehe.. I think if you are not attending your Yoga class, you can still do that at home huh?? I have heard of some Yoga which is suitable for pregnant ladies and also for the post natal period leh.. maybe you can do that to relax yourself and I supposed you can drag Aden to do it together also, haha!! must be fun~~ :D

  13. CNY shopping...can't remember when was my last time of it!

  14. It's funny that most of my friends/colleagues of similar age only start picking up cooking and baking after they have babies. Before it was always eating out and tapao because no time, but when babies enter their lives, they start to be paranoid about outside food for the babies, so they somehow manage to squeeze time to cook and bake. Some of them refer to my blog for cooking tips XD

  15. Take good care of yourself and I'm sure you will have a lot of helpers for the next few months or years.

  19. You sure have your hands full, Hailey.. yes, do try to rest more if possible..you need all the energy once the baby is on her/his way.. :)

  20. Glad to read your updates. Yes, sure hands full looking after an active kid while you are in a delicate state. Take it easy. Rest well because now you have all the times. Trust me, when baby is here and you are full time looking after both kids, you do not even have time to go to toilet!! ^^
