A VALENTINE for THREE


Pre-celebrated my Valentine with my hubby and the small little one in my stomach yesterday as I think I'll be on confinement on 14 Feb.


Nothing special as no one will agree driving up a 9 months pregnant lady to KL for Valentine's celebration. So we chose to dine at Kensington since Seremban has no other better choice.



Wanted to have lobster but too bad they didn't have it on yesterday (o_-)



valentine1b
Although these meals are not new to me, but I really love the taste of every dish. Quality is always GOOD (。♥‿♥。)


valentine2b
Super love the baked potato skin and I think their food presentation has improved significantly!



After the gratifying dinner, hubby and me went back home for a photo shooting session requested by me \('-')/


I haven't had time to edit all the photos and thus, I can only show you a few of self-camwhoring pix at the moment.



P1302400b
Super hard to have good-looking pix because my face is so chubby now. But due to my persistence, I can have a few CHIO photos finally! The tricks are to try different angles and cover my face with my hair!!!

P1292326b



As you can see in the photos, I changed from my dress to casual wear, then to pyjamas because I camwhored non-stop til the moment I removed my makeup (*Beh tahan myself).



Although I'm now goyang kaki at home, but I have many many things to do and prepare!!!


P1302426b
Planning my confinement menu! Really learned a lot from this book.


I no need to eat those boring "黄酒鸡" and "麻油鸡" everyday. YEAH!!! \(^•^)/

Cheesie was so surprised seeing my big stomach and swollen legs.



Besides watching TV and online at home, what I can do is ................................


EAT EAT EAT!


Chinese style course meal is something that you shouldn't miss during CNY. Not only that, I went to Matsu for Japanese food too. Always love Japanese food because they are less oily and thus made me think that it's more healthy!!!

My sexy legs are gone!


Due to the weight gain and severe water retention problem, my slim legs have turned into a pair of elephant legs which I could hardly accept. You may think I exaggerated but I'm not. Scroll down to get my evidence!



Just to show you my slim and sexy legs BEFORE I got pregnant.

Since the 6th month during my pregnancy, I have problems fitting into shoes. My foots were swollen and my ankle disappeared after work everyday. But swelling was gone in the morning after I soaked my foots in hot water and did foot massage.


PB221357b
This is the proof.



PB221362b
When it came to the 7th months, swelling problem got worst. I couldn't find my ankles anymore from day to night (︶︹︺)



My foot on 36th weeek

P1071837b
Swelling problem seemed to get better at foot area (as you can see my foot got a lot of crease and wrinkle) but something WORST happened.



I totally can't accept this!!!



P1142118b
My swollen elephant legs. Swelling on right leg is more severe as you can see in the photo (crying in my heart everyday when I see them)


P1142114b
The sacrifice of being a mum. Fat legs that FATT MY LIFE!



There are two more weeks to go. I really can't wait to start my slimming program!



Before I end this sad post, I gotta comfort myself by posting some pretty and fashionable photos.

Reunion Dinner 2012


Chinese New Year won't be complete without reunion dinners. This is an important part of the Chinese traditions that helps keep the family bonded.


This year I did not help in the kitchen because of my big stomach and I can hardly stand for more than 15 minutes. However, I did snap some photos when my mom-in-law was preparing the delicious typical CNY dishes.

Giant prawns. My favourite!


P1222244b
Abalone. Used to make soup and to cook with the sea cucumber.

P1222266b
My first Yee Sang for the year! Huat ar!



As the year of the dragon begins, let us spread our love to everyone surrounding us.

Wish you all Gong Xi Fa Cai and may this dragon year bring good health, prosperity and happiness \(^•^)/

Just to share my CNY purchase with you all.

P1082087b

P1082075b
It's still not enough for me to put all my headbands :(



ARTIFICIAL NAIL SETS


Since pregnant lady gotta stay away from nail polish, I purposely bought a few sets of artificial nail sets for CNY. They are cheap, easy to apply and remove! Most importantly is my nails can be "leng leng" during CNY.


P1082048b

BIRD NEST


Due to the bad experience with Eu Yan Sang that I mentioned in the previous post, I changed my bird nest supplier to Hockhua, a Singapore company, which is also famous for its bird nest. They also won the Singapore's Choice SUPERBRAND 2011. So I have no doubt on their bird nest's quality.


P1152135b
Instant bird nest drink


P1152150b
See the bird nest content!


P1071843b
Instant bird nest drink again. But this is smaller bottle type.


P1152178b
This one contains less bird nest.


P1071820b
This is the premium instant bird nest drink from Hockhua.


P1152167b
That's why it's premium. FULL bottle! Can you see the big pieces of bird nest!!! Super super love this.


P1152131b
Freeze-dried bird nest, a gift from my hubby, for me and our baby.



CNY Gifts for our loved one

P1142104b
They are for parents and siblings.


This year I'm going to enjoy my long long holiday during CNY. Yeah, started my maternity leave and will be back to work on April.


Will spend almost all my time sitting at home during CNY to wait for my baby to meet this beautiful world. Finger crossed!
