Kat’s Birthday @ Cuckoo Callay

24th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

Today Kat, Kaz and I had brunch in Newtown’s Cuckoo Callay to celebrate Kat’s 33rd Birthday. It was my second time leaving bub at home, though I think I’m ready to venture out alone with him next time :).

Cuckoo Calley was located literally outside Newtown station ticket gates. It’s hard to miss the bright pink logo. I grabbed a seat inside next to a huge mirror which end up being a pretty fun prop to play with XD. Our table looks so much bigger than it is XD.

Happy Birthday sis! Hope you enjoyed your birthday treat :D

A day at Roselands

20th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

Another week, another babies catch up :) Hubby and I met up with Newway at Roselands Shopping Center. I haven’t been here before…it felt like a tiny Westfields! It had the smallest little Myers too, it was kinda cute XD. Well, not its super old abandoned-looking lift. When you’ve got prams, you’ve got no choice ^^”

Growing bigger each day T.T P-chan is almost 17 weeks.

Lucky Hubby gets both cuties! P-chan is starting to catch up to Chloe’s size :O

Two little sleepy heads :D It was almost their nap times BUT WE WANT PHOTOS.

Ah, I love watching babies interact! Chloe was all touchy-feely while Lucas was a bit of a losty ^.^”

It’s fun taking bub out when he’s always on his best behaviour :)

Chocolate delights

14th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday I received these surprise Belle Fleur chocolates in the mail :D Isn’t it so pretty?! They look too adorable to eat ^^

Hubby and I shall savour it :3 Thank you Robbie, you are awesome :D

Leo’s 1st Birthday

11th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

I’m back here at Lab Kitchen, this time to celebrate our nephew Leo’s 1st birthday. The poke bowl I got last time was so yummy I was this close to ordering it again XD Instead, I went for the miso salmon and got Hubby to get the poke bowl (so I could still have some too ohoho 8D)

Cofa lunch @ Fratelli Fresh

6th August 2019

Dear Chibi,

Last Sunday was P-chan’s first time catching the train and light rail :D. We were heading to Darling Harbour to meet up with the Cofa gang for a late lunch at Fratelli Fresh. We hopped on the same carriage as Somps & Dong and travelled together. We also bumped into MZ and Amy while waiting for the light rail.

We arrived right at 2pm and took advantage of a off-peak 50% discount. Unfortunately it was only valid for groups with less than 11 people, and we had…well, 11 people XD. We end up splitting up and eating on separate tables close to each other.

There was a lot going on with all the people, lights and live music. So much to take in for this little one :3

Friday lunch @ Lab Kitchen

2nd August 2019

Dear Chibi,

My in-laws invited me out for lunch today at Lab Kitchen in Wentworth Point. It was my first time out with P-chan without Hubby, so I needed to know how to put bub in the car seat & assemble the pram. It end up being a pretty stress-free day since bub was on his best behaviour and did not fuss at all. He sat in his pram quietly watching us eat for over an hour. He was so perfect :3 It also helps that Mary came over to pick us up so I didn’t have to drive.

I ordered the poke bowl and taro latte. It was really yummy! Sylvia also brought back some kyoho grape flavored KitKat from her recent Japan trip :D Overall, it was a pretty good day.

Babies day out

30th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

There’s something comforting about hanging out with other mummies and their babies. Even better when they’re friends you’ve had since High School :)

Lunch @ Chow Bella Cafe, Lidcombe

‘Just the 3 of us’

29th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

With Hubby’s camera in hand, we spent an afternoon at a nearby park for some family time outdoors. Hubby captured so many great shots it was hard to select just a few to share… I’m going to love looking back at these photos one day :) P-chan is the cutest little munchkin :3

A visit to the library

29th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

I had a nostalgic moment today when we took P-chan to the local library. It’s honestly been over a decade since I’ve walked into any library and the funny thing is… it feels the same. This wasn’t the same library I used to go to as a kid, but it had the same old 90s vibe and the same smell. It was kind of comforting. Does that even make sense? XD

I signed up for a membership and left with a couple of colourful books. Yay for more bonding activity :)

Somps’ Baby Shower

28th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

It didn’t seem like that long ago when Somps shared her pregnancy news with me. We were having ramen at Lidcombe Centre, where we spent the day buying party supplies for my Baby Shower and searching for that perfect moon balloon. Yet here we are, 30 weeks and celebrating the pending arrival of her baby boy!

This was also the first time I’ve seen the cofa crew since giving birth to P-chan, so it was nice catching up and introducing him :) They described him as being “pretty chilled”. He has been a pretty good boy :}
