    Okay.. it has been about 2 weeks since I have this new theme and I'm still trying my best to make it look beautiful, like disable the double header, trying to give header a photo, the "Home" page makes my posts look like I never give them "Space" and "Enter" T___T, trying to fix the comments button but somehow I don't have this "smartness" anymore to find out where to edit them and how to make them more beautiful like I used to do (many years ago). Or I guess.. simply because I am just lazy. Hahaha. And then hor.. a not beautiful perfect theme somehow demotivates me to blog.. hahahahahaha.. okay. I lied. I have been lazy since my pregnancy started.. or.. was it before? or.. waaaaaayyy before I got married?? O.o and I don't do selfie that often liao lor.. cos I think I look fat from whichever angle. I say real real one. Let me show you. #1 201504_Dunno02 #2 201504_Dunno03 #3 201504_Dunno04 #4 201504_Dunno05 #5 201504_Dunno06 I used to complain tell theHub that I look fat ever since I discovered I have little one in the tummy. But this morning I decided to stop complaining telling him that I am FAT cos I think he started to get boring over the same thing I've been repeating. I saw a video "11 Struggles Pregnant Women Know Too Well" shared by friends who are Mummies now. I am not sure how true all of them are now but the only part that I know is I don't look good in the mirror T_T I am not complaining. I am just not used to see myself changing from a not-so-slim-but-also-not-fat-kinda size to the current huge tummy. That's not all. It's gonna grow so much more bigger in another 20 weeks time and I don't know how am I going to handle that. I look into the mirror and stare at myself, feeling blessed to be able to pregnant and give theHub a little one but at the same time feeling sad cos the sizes of my attires have gone up from XS and S to M and some to L and maybe not long after that to a size I couldn't believe I will be wearing O.o 201504_Dunno01 and then during these two weeks, I have been having some pain at below ribs, next to the tummy. The pain is so unbearable I was thinking I might have some cancerous organ in me T____T #PregnancyDepression The pain only come everytime when I lay down on bed, trying to get some rest, at night. I've been sleeping for less than 3 hours, everyday, for about 2 weeks. Wake up after the most 2 hours of sleep and started to sit and stand and walk around the room or visit the toilet until the sun comes out. Everytime I wanted to lay back to sleep, the pain started to poke into the nerves and made me cry every night like a ghost. So, during the day time, I'm like a very bad mood zombie at work :( I've visited doctors and none can help because I am pregnant and there is nothing much there can do except to ask me to bear the pain. T______T But I'm so glad that everyone around me has been so caring and even comfort me that it will be over soon. MIL gave lots of advise and even gave me a wonder cream that many friends said this is one awesome cream - Lucas' Papaw Ointment . I applied it though it didn't help much in curing the pain. I even tried to apply muscles pain cream to that area. Love the hot sensation but the pain came back after that T__T 201504_Dunno07 Parents on the other hand got me some Coconuts to bring home.. and Papa even help me to chop them off to ease theHub to poke a hole for me in the coconut so i can just put in straw to drink while Mama cook some aloe vera drink for me, just in case my body is too hot for myself to handle. Well, I guess I've talked too much for today.. I shall leave the rest for tomorrow.. kakakaka.. Till then, have a great Monday and Be Happy ^.^

    Got a long message from a friend who advised me to take note of the food to eat during breastfeeding time. I am not anywhere near breastfeeding yet, but it's never too early to get some knowledge about it. Since she shares in whatsapp, I will just type them out and attach with some pictures (if any). Hope this little post helps those who are going to breastfeed. Or if you know anything about breastfeeding, do let me know too. Our little baby will be very much thankful to you ^.^ 1) Peppermint Any kind of food that contains mint can potentially reduce milk supply. This includes herbal remedies or herbal tea which contain mint. Large amounts of consumption can greatly affect milk secretion, which wouldn’t be great during a period of growth spurt for your baby. One or two peppermint drops should be fine, if you must have mint candy, but no more than that. 2) Spicy Food Why oh why are you in the list? It is said that spicy food like chilies, peppers and hot sauces are a sure way to induce crankiness and fussiness in infants while breastfeeding. T__T 3) Garlic Although most people love garlic, a baby’s palate hasn’t developed enough for them to appreciate complex flavors. Mothers consuming garlic may encounter finicky eaters or babies who refuse to breastfeed if they smell garlic in the milk, which could lead to malnutrition if this occurs often. 4) Alcohol Most people already know about alcohol and its negative effects on brain development. Alcohol in milk secretions can make a baby groggy, drowsy and sleep deeper than normal. Mothers should not consume more than two alcoholic drinks at a time while breastfeeding. Though you can “pump and dump” before feeding (pumping some milk and discarding it if you have been drinking no more than two drinks) – but making a habit out of this is not recommended! 5) Caffeine When consuming caffeine, these chemicals can cause sleeplessness in your infant, which in turn can cause crankiness and other kinds of sleep disorders. Because of its potency, caffeine isn’t secreted out of the digestive system. Caffeine also causes intestinal irritation, since an infant’s digestive system isn’t fully developed yet. If you must consume caffeinated products, make sure there’s ample time to allow your body to process it out of your system (about 6 hours). 6) Chocolates Chocolate of course contains caffeine, the negative side effects of which have already been described. But did you know that chocolate can also act as a laxative in infants whose digestive systems are still developing? Mothers who are also chocoholics should cut down on Hershey bars, or at least wait to leave enough time for your body to process it before feeds. 7) Large Fish and Shellfish Big, wild caught salmon and tuna should be avoided since there is a risk that they could contain trace amounts of mercury. Mercury poisoning not only causes birth defects, it can result in brain damage in an infant’s developing nervous system. This includes sushi for mothers who are breastfeeding. Also, women who are allergic to shellfish such as mussels, shrimp or lobster (or have family members with a shellfish allergy) should avoid it. Even if you are not allergic to shellfish, that doesn’t not mean that your baby isn’t. Happy baby pic to end the post :)

    I believe everyone has a childhood memory of this !! Orange flavour ice tube with samboi. Hohoho. It used to cost RM0.10 for shorter one without samboi.. and RM0.20 for longer one with samboi. FYI, back then our pocket money only 30cents. So, have to think really careful before buying. Haha.. In the earlier days, they call this type of dessert, ais kantung. It used to be more difficult to eat ais kantung but olden days people have their way of eating without dripping / wasting any of it. It has been ages since I last had this and since we were at this tourist place in Kuching, how can we miss this famous roadside ais kacang. TheHub wasn't raised up in Kuching during the primary schooldays, so I let him try the rumored-to-be-very-nice Ais Kantung @ RM2.20 It wasn't easy for us to finish one kantung at the cloudy weather. Both of us thought that the kantung is a bit too sweet for our liking, at our age. 20150314-15_Sunshine15w5d_Borneo Delight_02 We then walked pass a laundry shop where people queued with their baskets of clothes waiting for their turn to get their laundry done. Like seriously?! O.o and then, on our way back to our car, we saw this corner eating shop called Borneo Delight, located just opposite Life Cafe Carpenter Street, facing the main road, which I thought mainly to attract angmoh tourists to dine there. I was wrong. I glanced through their menu and was surprised at the price of the dishes offered. Our initial plan was to go to Alain's Kheng Lee to have lunch but unfortunately he was cleaning up when we reached there. We had no choice but to wander around the area since we have a proper parking space along Carpenter Street, hence we became tourists in Kuching for the afternoon. We even managed to find my childhood fried chicken wing and fish ball stall near the temple, opposite Star Cineplex. THE AUNTY IS STILL SELLING THE YUMMILICIOUS CHICKEN WING AND FISH BALLS !!! and now even added drumstick to their menu, or they memang have it just that I didn't know? Hehehehe.. Whatever it is, now I know they are selling on Sunday afternoons .. hehehehe... Ok ok.. Back to Borneo Delight, we ordered our drinks at rather reasonable price in this place. Neslo Tarik for only RM1.50 !! 20150314-15_Sunshine15w5d_Borneo Delight_04 While waiting for our food to be served, theHub got attracted by Musang Durian fridge and went to look at what they have inside. haha.. 20150314-15_Sunshine15w5d_Borneo Delight_03 We only ordered a plate of Dabai Fried Rice @ RM5.00 to share because we were not sure of the quality of the food. To our surprise, this plate of fried rice is so much better than Aunty's Corner. 20150314-15_Sunshine15w5d_Borneo Delight_05 We love the cozy environment and we are definitely going back to you again, Borneo Delight ^.^

    It has been more than a month, more than 5 weeks, that I did not go to the gym after the discovery of our Little Sunshine. I couldn't take it any longer because at-least-must-sweat-kind-of-person-like-me, suddenly need to stop all the workout and better be worm after work T_T because they say it is very dangerous during the first trimester to do any form of exercises. T_T But our doctor told me that I should be doing all the things like I used to do, best not to change my lifestyle, must exercise if I'm a regular gym goer, but must make sure it's not too high impact (after I told him what kind of exercises I've been doing all this while - BodyAttack with tuck jumps, high knee run, jumping jacks, jumping lunges. LOL !!) Still, I can do BodyAttack with low-impact, so.. there I went to the gym on Wednesday. Hohoho.. 20150311_LUF_01 I didn't sweat as much as I wish, but I'm glad I'm finally back to the gym to see all those regular faces. My huge tummy (at least to me cos I've never seen my tummy this huge before) was hidden with the attire I wore. HAHAHA.. KC requested for a picture of the fatty worm but I refused. Probably the next time I'm at gym with mirror, I might consider taking one and show to you guys la. But for now.. I've more interesting photos to show you. We were invited to Coco's house for her forever sweet 21st birthday celebration with the SLA gang. Photos were all sent to us by the pretty birthday lady. Jenny, the Zumba instructor and I syiok sendiri in the 6 photos. HAHAHA !! 20150308_Coco's 41st Birthday_01-06gif Philip managed to capture this candid pic of us laughing when Mylo walked over to us and wanted to be in the group photo, but the back is facing camera :D 20150308_Coco's 41st Birthday_07 While theHub syiok sendiri at the back with Pink Panther and when Jac tried to adjust Mylo to the correct position but.. 20150308_Coco's 41st Birthday_08-10gif When theHub is still playing with Pink Panther and when Jenny.. em.. trying to hit the birthday girl? HAHAHAHA.. I'm just kidding.. I've no idea what she was doing.. 20150308_Coco's 41st Birthday_11,14gif and finally one proper picture after all the hilarious photos. :D 20150308_Coco's 41st Birthday_13 Happy Happy Birthday Coco.. May you grow more beautiful each day and stay LOUD !!! >.<
