This is what I get for Naomi... hahahaha...
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.... :)
Ok, Naomi says,

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

1)Banu - sorry lar, don't hate me
2)allthingspurple - Another meme to 8 about you.
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 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....
Naomi with her dad...
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?
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.
Naomi in the Bumbo Seat.
"Bad Mummy, do my face....."
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....

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?
