Lucas P-chan ~ Our Little Bundle of Joy

18th May 2019

Dear Chibi,

Hubby and I both feel incredibly blessed to be parents to our perfect little boy :)

Born 25th April at 8.10am, our little bub Lucas (affectionately nicknamed Pi), entered this world at 3.14kg :3 He arrived while I was 39 weeks + 1 day pregnant. Today, our little P-chan is 3 weeks & 2 days old.

P-chan at 9 days old <3

The days leading up to his arrival were some of the most difficult days Hubby and I have ever endured. I went through 3 days of excruciating back pain labour, followed by 12 hours of established labour. Although delivery didn’t go exactly to plan (I ended up with an emergency cesarean), I know we did our very best. Most importantly, he arrived safe and sound. Despite all that we went through, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I love him so much, and will treasure all the moments we have together as a new family of 3.

I’d like to blog more regularly, but with a newborn it’s hard to find free time ^^” I’m struggling to stay awake most of the time, but am trying to take it easy and rest as much as possible. It’s been made a little easier with Hubby by my side.

Parenthood is a lot of hard work, and I know this is just the beginning. Still, without a doubt, giving birth to P-chan and being a mother has been the most incredible experience of my life.

Meeting Baby Chloe

23rd November 2018

Dear Chibi,

Tonight after work, Hubby and I went to visit Newway & Alex to meet their adorable little newborn Chloe :D She is 3 weeks old today and is the cutest bub ever *_* She even smiled at Hubby for a second, awwwww. Smile at me Chloe! XD


Precious little baby <3 So glad to see them doing well.

Catch Up Dinner @Billu’s

6th October 2018

Dear Chibi,

Last night we caught up with this lovely bunch at Billu’s Indian Eatery in Harris Park. Nothing quite like spicy on a cold, wet, gloomy night :) It’s been a few months since our last hangout and Bert is now pretty huge :D (I CAN FINALLY MENTION THIS ON MY BLOG XD) Can’t wait for the Baby Shower next week :)

Coles mini collection

1st September 2018

Dear Chibi,

Happy first day of spring!!

Coles Mini Collection

Who doesn’t love a mini replica? :D Last month Coles supermarkets had a promotion where if you spend over $30 in one transaction, you get a random ‘mini’ of  a everyday consumer good. Hubby and I regularly shop at Coles but we hardly ever spend over $30 in one go. I didn’t think I’d be able to get my hands on any, but luckily my work colleague was collecting these for her daughter and gave me her extras! Yes… ALL of these were her duplicates!! Lucky me! There were 30 different products to collect. I end up with 13.

Coles Mini Collection

My favourites from the lot: Colgate toothpaste, Tim Tam, Leggo’s bolognese sauce, Oak chocolate milk and Milo.

Spicy Ramen Challenge

18th August 2018

Dear Chibi,

For those who know me, I usually avoid eating spicy foods as my tolerance has always been rather low. Well, over the last couple of years Hubby has slowly trained me up and today sent this challenge my way:

It was actually quite delicious XD.

We both ate a bowl each, and I found the amount of sweat dripping from Hubby’s forehead so amusing XD Meanwhile my face is completely dry and I didn’t drink any water until I finished the whole thing.

WHAT A BOSSS. Yup, I just said that about myself :D

I’m still horrified by the sight of chili peppers though ^^”

 

Back to Class

21st February 2018

Dear Chibi,

Tonight after work, Kaz and I did a one-off short course together in the city. We haven’t been in the same ‘classroom’ in a really long time, so it was pretty nostalgic XD. I can’t say I learned much from the course, but I had a good time hanging out so I consider this a success :D

Dinner@ The Sambal

1st February 2018

Dear Chibi,

Sunday night we had my inlaws over to watch the Australian Open Finals match between Federer and Cilic. It was a pretty fun and amusing evening XD Of course, it also helps that Federer won ^.^
