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*

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

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…
