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

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 :}

Newborn Photoshoot

24th May 2019

Dear Chibi,

Today we received photos from our newborn photoshoot that was taken when P-chan was just 9 days old (or his 10th day if we calculate his birth date as day 1) It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks since. He’s growing up so quickly, and a part of me just wants time to stop :) His tiny days are so precious and limited. I want to love and protect him forever.

It was our first time out since returning from the hospital, and we were surprised how much we needed to prep just to leave the house XD! Luckily, P-chan seems to enjoy the car ride, despite his face looking a bit frowny ^^; Cute, but I’m looking forward to when he starts to smile too, hehe.

P-chan was well behaved and slept through the entire photoshoot. Our photographer Tina was super gentle with him and made sure he was extremely comfortable. I love how the photos turned out! My heart is exploding from all the cuteness <3

Ah, too adorable.. I can’t decide on a favourite. Gotta get these printed out some day :3

Maternity Photoshoot

2nd April 2019

Dear Chibi,

Being pregnant is a beautiful thing.. and I want to cherish every moment of it. I can hardly remember what it feels like not to be pregnant, with this little one kicking about in my belly :).

With less than a month to go, Hubby and I spent an afternoon at the secluded ‘Secret Garden’, doing what could be our last photo shoot with ‘just the two of us’ :3

Thank you Hubby for these beautiful photos <3

My ‘Sweet Dreams’ Baby Shower

24th March 2019

Dear Chibi,

I’m going to be a Mummy :3

I’ve been growing a tiny human over the last several months and in just a couple more weeks, we’re finally going to meet our precious little Babian :3 (Not his actual name..incase you were wondering hehe ;D)

This pregnancy has been quite an experience so far… I’m now almost 35 weeks along. Hubbian and I are both very excited and ready to take on this next chapter of our lives together. (As ready as one can be anyway

Yesterday, we celebrated this special time of our lives with a ‘Sweet Dreams’ themed Baby Shower for his pending arrival :3

Michelle’s Baby Shower

19th February 2019

Dear Chibi,

Mich & Troys Baby Shower

Last Sunday was our dear Michelle’s Baby Shower, a BBQ lunch hosted at her apartment’s spacious rooftop. When we arrived, we were greeted by pretty pink balloons :D

It was our first time coming here and we were rather impressed by all the facilities. Swimming pools? Gym? A library? Music room? View of the bridge?! The list goes on…but an air conditioned room was our best friend on this unexpectedly warm day XD
