Flipping over...

Did I mentioned that Naomi could flip over now? I didn't, did I? Old already, can't remember.

Well, Naomi flipped herself over without help at almost 5 months old. But she seldom do it. Probably she's lazy. The day she flipped over, she was able to take her hand out already. That was a surprise and shock to me when I walked into the room and see her lying on her tummy with her head up and both hand supporting herself smiling at me. What if she felt down from the bed because I didn't put any pillow around her. *phew* my bad.

Today and yesterday, she kept flipping over whenever I put her down. But after 10 mins she will start screaming for help because she couldn't turn herself over yet. But after I lay her down on her back, she'll start to flip over again. Mummy is so tired as well.... Now, can't wait to see her sit up without help.... :)

TAG- The last post...

This depressing tag is from Nicole....

WHO? WHO started this depressing post? I refused to do it! :P I don't even want to think about the very last day left for me to spend with my precious family... No No No, this is too depressing!

And No I am not going to pass this depressing tag to anyone and trying to make anyone else feel depress like what I am feeling it now...

I have to forget about the last day thing...

I am sorry, I am a bit emotional now...

Guilt....

I am feeling so guilty, I had rice today... Why guilty? Here's the conversation on saturday night...

Me : "Hon, I am so fat...."
Papa Sze (didn't even look at me) :"No hon, you are not."
Me: "Yes, I am. I don't want to eat rice start from tomorrow...."
Papa Sze (Burst into laughter) :" Ya right, if you can do it, you will not be a FOO(my surname)..."
Me: "Hrm! I will try, don't look down on me!...."


And I had rice today already... no wonder the number on the weighing scale doesn't come down anymore.... I love rice, so much that I would turn into a rice bowl if I could... Fragrance rice even nicer. Erm, brown rice, no thanks.


Like my niece Trinity said, "white rice is the yummi-est thing in the world!"


Oh by the way, I am not a FOO the day I married the NG, right? Yeah! I can continue having rice without feeling any guilt.....


Just to share my Naomi's punk head.... Hehehehe...

Over-over-over spent....

Ok ok... how much did I spend this month on Naomi alone.... the expensive pneumococoal and rota virus vaccination, toys, clothes, more clothes, and today I bought a Chicco High Chair and Britax First Class car seat.... next month we'll all have to go on diet. And next month Naomi is supposed to start on solid...

The money is so small nowadays, I have to spend at least $200 each groceries shopping and I do this once a week. Did I spend too much? I don't think so, those are essential household products; shampoo, detergent, food, diapers....

Financial planning is never my talent, I am a shopaholic! Papa Sze has been complaining about "our" spending habit (by the way, for those who doesn't know my hubby, he is a consultant doing cost efficiency, his job is to cut cost; while the wife.... sigh...), I am, really, I am trying very hard, to save money, not to overspend, start from next month-lar, k?

Dear Lord, please grant me power to resist buying those cute little shoes, pretty pink dresses for Naomi; please blind my eyes from those things that I already have, e.g (shoes, blouses,jeans....)... Amen. Arrgh.... tomorrow fabulousmom got warehouse sales.... so we make it next month lar... Amen

Frozen numbers....

Why why why why why????

The digit on the scale is frozen at that particular numbers whenever I step on it.... Bad scale! Bad scale! Bad scale!

I've decided not to step on it for at least another 3 months....

Black out...

Last night, we experienced our first ever black out at our area. Naomi was fast asleep. I was so worry that Naomi would wake up from her sweet slumber so I quickly rushed into the room and fan my princess. It was a one hour black out, my arms, were so tired when the electric currant came back.

And as I was fanning my lil princess, I remembered my papa used to do the same to us whenever there was black out back at my little hometown. We would lay down on the floor and my dad would fan 3 of us, me, my brother and my sister at the same time. Sometimes the electric didn't come back for the whole night and he would fan us the whole night, of course rests in between... OOhh, that must be real tiring but papa never complained a single word.

I was dad's lil princess back then. I didn't have to take off prawn shell or crab shell, my dad would do everything and place them nicely on the plate for me to eat. Dad would leave drumstick for me and my sis, wings for mum, chicken breast for brother, he always take the bone part... His love for us is infinite...

Dad's liver was swollen and in terrible pain 3 years ago and we were so scared of losing him at that time. I just realised our life would be so different without dad... And with God's blessing, dad was alright. I cannot imagine our life with no daddy around.

Papa, I love you so very much that no words could describe.

Naomi is 5 months old...


Ha! My girl is 5 months old already...... You might say "aiyor, so fast 5 month liao-ar(means 'already' in some chinese dialect)?" Yeah, fast, to me it was pretty long 5 months... And some might say "very fast one, blink blink your eyes and she'll be a grown up..." I blinked many many times, she's still this tiny. :P But I am happy that she's 5 month old...

Naomi at 5th month...


Papa Sze found an excuse to dine outside (I know he's sick of my cooking already, rice with dishes everyday), to celebrate Naomi 5 months old... So we went to 1 Utama for some Peranakan food which is pretty good. Papa Sze is so addicted to sling his princess in the baby carrier, he happily sling her. Naomi can support her head very well now. This BabyBjorn Carrier Air is really a life saver for us. Naomi always refuse to sleep in the pram and need to be carried to sleep. We have ring sling, pouch sling, Indonesian selendang and this carrier and this is the only one she accept to be in it. Now she can comfortably sleep in the carrier. But this carrier doesn't support baby above 11kg. So Naomi, please don't grow heavy so fast hor....

Another Tag- Sweet 18....

I have been doing tags non-stop!!! And if you have realised, 70% are from my dear Nicole. So to gain my readership, I have to follow the rules of the game... :P

And here it goes: Go to PopCulture site.Pick the year you turn 18 years old.Get yourself nostalgic over the songs that year.Write something about how those songs afffected you.Pass it on to five more friends (5 again????? no way no way.... )

I Believe I Can Fly - R. Kelly
I Finally Found Someone - Barbra Streisand & Bryan Adams
Don't Speak - No Doubt
Un-Break My Heart - Toni Braxton

Ar, these song basically didn't affect me much but I remember that time was my college year, I had to work part time in a cyber cafe to fund my own living expenses. These songs are the hit songs that kept playing and playing and playing for one whole day... And I was the one playing them... The only thing about those songs are they accompanied me to earn very very little money at my 18 years of age, and not that sweet at all.... :P But was fun though.

So to those above 18....
Banu - You might wanna hate me for keep tagging you...
Becky's Mum - Still remember your 18?

What's in my handbag??? - Tag

From Nicole's mouth only I realised I got this tag from Angeleyes, who tag me for the first time, who really has a pair of big round angel's eyes.... :) My responde very fast-leh, because my hubby don't need to use internet tonight, so now we side by side doing our "work" on our own laptops. How fun........???!!! Oh Nicole, I said I wanna put the pics of my diaper bags, now you see them lar.
After Naomi was born, I no longer carry a handbag, I only carry diaper bags... I have 3 types of diaper bags, a backpack for long journey so I can put more diapers and toys to occupy Naomi's time; a cross shoulder small diaper bag for very very short outting, like groceries shopping or playgroups; and the shoulder diaper bag that I use most often for casual shopping and normal outting.

What's in my diaper bags will be wet tissue, diapers, diaper changing mat, my purse, sometimes only credit cards no purse, toys, extra cloth for Naomi, a mobile phone (a must), keys... no bottle as Naomi is still breastfed, no food as Naomi is "underage". So basically that's it. Oh, sometimes there'll be a lipstick and a compact... but rarely...
Inside my bag....

Cross shoulder diaper bag - my favourite actually, very small...

Backpack diaper bag for long journey used...

My casual use diaper bag...

Now, I will have to pass it some someone... can be only one? The One???
God's Little Angel, Banu, you might want a meme.

My baby's a model....

Trinity and gong-gong here for Easter Holiday. And Papa Sze is working from home this few weeks. Since Trinity is a bit of a disturbance to papa Sze, I have to take all of them out. Yesterday we were in 1Utama Art Attack, today we went to Borders book store in The Curve. I actually enjoyed it very much, shopping is my favourite pass time, including window shopping.
I put Naomi into the Bumbo Seat for a try, hey, she seems to like it for the first 10 mins. But after that, she started to cry to be cuddled. I wanted to get that for her if she liked it, I continued letting her sitting in there and offered her some toys but she still cried. So I don't think she will be sitting in there for too long. Saved my RM199.90 then.

After that there were 2 ladies from one of the baby shop asked for my permission to take Naomi's picture to put on their brochure. Naomi was sitting in her stroller with her legs on the bar in front like a "big boss". They thought she's cute like that. Ar... my baby's a model... :P

Naomi in the Bumbo Seat.

Vaccination, again....

Naomi went for her PCV(pneumococol) and rotavirus vaccine yesterday. As usual, the nurse will take her weight and to our shock she is already 8.1kg, at 4 months and 3 weeks! And 69cm in length, pretty big and long. It's not easy to carry her around anymore, the arms will feel the weight after 30 minutes carrying her.


Once Naomi saw the doctor, she straight away cried. I think she remembered this bad man used to poke her with needle! But she took it very well, didn't cry much after the jab. Mummy as usual stand far far away and poh-poh will take care of the rest.




"Bad Mummy, do my face....."

Where I want to go next? - Tag

Nicole just give me the hardest tag in the world.... it's not that I need to send it out in 7 days, it's that I need to tag 5 people who has not done it, this is the hardest and so impossible for me, hey I am so new in blogging! I'm still considered one newbie, ain't I?

I am a shopaholic, where I wanna go next? Definitely MILAN, Italy!

So, now I have to talk about Milan....

We will begin with the world biggest cathedral 'Duomo'. It's located at the Piazza del Duomo, Milan's neuralgic center. A must-go place if I were in Milan, to be able to admire the view of the city on the roof.... And not far away is one the world's greatest opera houses, La Scala. And then I'll go to the museum, Pinacoteca di Brera. I don't think I'll stay there long, last time in the lourve Paris only took me 2 hours. Finally saw MonaLisa and couldn'y recall much about what I was looking at before hand. I am not very artistic person-lar. Ok, talk about artist, then i'll too go to have a look at the Statue of the famous Leornado Da Vincci, know not much about him but still will go there take pictures. Not to mention Castello Sforzesco the castle, Parco Sempiore the huge park, Arch of Peace.....etc etc etc...

And then, nothing else but to shop shop and shop!!!!! You let a shopaholic into Milan, ha! You have to be prepared for any consequenses. It's not complete without shopping in Milan! First, I'll go to the famous Golden Quad,Quadrilatero d'Oro, with the world's most exclusive boutiques, Gucci, Prada, Missoni, Armani...... I'll definitely go to Alessi to get some of their cutest household products.

Ok ok, enough or I 'll start bugging my hubby to go Italy....

Naomi's nap time...

You know, before I delivered my baby, everyone has been warning me about tough, sleepless nights. No one mentioned to me about day naps are causing just as much grief!

To my surprise putting Naomi to sleep at night was a lot easier than making her sleeping in the day. Naomi seldom sleep long, and hard to be settled to take her nap. I read from the books, magazines and articles that baby at this age would need 15 to 16 hours of sleep a day, and about 4 to 5 hours in the day and 11 hours at night... Luckily Naomi normally take about 12 to 13 hours of sleep at night.

Everyday I have to think of new tricks to make her sleep. Today, what work was making funny face before putting her down to sleep. Yesterday was sing songs as loud as I could... sigh, what's tomorrow?
