Goal # 7: Child bearing - almost a (✓)

I'm starting my countdown now. 8 more weeks to go before my scheduled cesarean. After this, I'm done with child bearing, one of the goals before I hit the big 30. Time to focus on other important goals in life, i.e. endless tai-tai-dom lifestyle of mahjong, shopping and pampering. (DH, if you're reading this, please know that I'm just kidding. Hah! Please don't faint.)


...and Happy Malaysia Day to all Malaysians!

Weight, I hate you

Belly Art photos by Mark Jordan

It has been 29 weeks (or slightly less than that) since I had a puff of fine tobacco leaves with a bottle of icy cold Hoegaarden while enjoying a good game of pool. It has been more than half a year since I hit the beach or pool with a pair of bikini, showing off my postpartum body that screams, 'I am a proud mother'. 

I have 9 more weeks to go before my scheduled cesarean. And my weight is off the scale again. It took me 4 months to shed all my unwanted pregnancy pounds previously and I'm gaining it back again with absolutely zero effort. During my last check up, record shows I gained 8 kilos in 5 weeks. Yes, it's not a typo. I meant kilograms. Up till last week, I've put on 22 kilos in total and I'm not even full term yet. That's obviously way too much compared to the recommended weight of 15 to 17 kilos for the entire pregnancy.

Deprivation of my wants, crazy weight gains that makes me look like Shrek and a tummy so huge that makes a good night sleep impossible... all these are turning me into a whining biatch again.

Where: Ippudo @ Mandarin Gallery
Address: As above
What to eat: Pork ramen
Price vs. Portion: Quite expensive. One bowl is definitely not enough to fill my hungry tummy. You might want to order some side dishes.
Verdict: Good to try at least once. 

Where: Space @ My Humble House
Address: 8, Raffles Avenue, Esplanade Mall, Singapore
What to eat: Mama Leong's chicken rice. Chicken is so SO tender and juicy!
Price vs. Portion: Reasonable.
Verdict: A must try!
P.s:- For alcoholics like Dear Hubby, it might not be wise for you to order their Tiger draft beer. It cost $12 per glass (which is even more expensive than MBS theater beer price!)

Where: House @ Dempsey Road
Address: 8D, Dempsey Road, Singapore
What to eat: Shaved Pear Salad, Red Snapper & Pandan Jelly Sponge (in pic above)
Price vs. Portion: Can be quite pricey, depending on what you order. Shaved Pear Salad ($16), Red Snapper ($28), Pandan Jelly Sponge ($6).
Verdict: A great place for desserts.
