Ramblings.

I find it totally fine being a worrywart for my child. Afterall I’m a first time parent and I should be given the chance to be extra attentive to my first (all) child. It’s not because the advices I’ve got from you guys ain’t fantastic. But how could you expect us to tone it down just because you’ve been there and done that? I don’t enjoy being worried but I find that it’s a process for all first time parents […]

First-Time Parents

I have been so held up with taking care of Charley that I simply have close to zilch energy to blog recently. Forgive the hiatus. So what have been we been up to? Many times people wonder how could one be so busy taking care of baby. Shouldn’t bonding time be free and easy? Not quite so. I could tell you most of my time is taken up feeding and burping baby, trying to coax her to sleep, washing bottles […]

No point crying over split milk.

Literally. This is a post to remind myself to have my eyes wide awake when I express the next time round.. Which is in the next few hours. Painstakingly made a good 70ml only to topple it on the bed; left with 40ml of goodness and a very upset me. No point crying over split milk they say. Share This:

The Pediatrician

When Charley was born, she was directed to a pediatrician (PD) recommended under my gynae. Me and the hubs didn’t really went to google much about this PD. Or we did, and the Internet has very little info about her. Our PD is Dr. Ratna Sridjaja. You can see Charley doing ‘breakdancing’ as Dr. Ratna does the routine checkup for her, haha! If you’re heading towards Gleneagles to deliver your baby, I’m highly recommending her to be your PD. Dr. […]

Charley’s Diaper Bag

We have been out with Charley a few times that we have quite a good insight to what should be in her diaper bag. I finally understand now when my gf says that I would no longer have a place for my own bag, instead, my bag would probably be downgraded to a necessity pouch (wallet, keys, iphone) within my baby’s bag. True that. The first few times we went out as it was time to bring the baby to […]

Shopping at Redmart

So there I am, amidst doing my confinement and fussing over the little one. I actually found some time to review this new app that allows me to do grocery shopping without having to step out of the house. Speaking of which, if not for those few trips to the gynae and PD, I would have fainted due to cabin fever. So I’m very thankful that the doc trips are scheduled as such! So what is Redmart? It is a […]

Follow up post: What should really be in your hospital bag (caesarean)?

This is a follow up post on what should really be in your hospital bag. Previously I’ve written about what I’ve brought along.. guess what? Plenty of things were left unused and we ended up lugging everything back. Note that I was too confident earlier that we were able to. That’s no easy feat considering you have a baby in tow and stitches of pain that makes you unable to stand, sit, bend well. The latter pretty much makes you […]

Little Charley.

If you haven’t already knew by now, we have a new addition to our family! Little Ms. Charley! It’s pronounced as ‘Shar-lee’ btw. I know the name is not very gender specific but that’s the way we like it. Currently we are trying to fix up her chinese name. Initially we didn’t think about going to a master to calculate the suitability of her name based on her bazi. But since we have went for a horoscopic caesarean.. We might […]

See you tomorrow Bean!

It’s quite amazing how the days go by just like that, into months, and before you know it..we’re having a baby.. tomorrow! I’m not sure if I have any energy to blog about anything post-delivery or even hours before it so I guess I’m writing it before I enter into a panic attack. Haha! I’m also very happy to have found a fellow mum who happens to be delivering in the same hospital as I am tomorrow, all through the […]

We will stand together hear the lions roar.

So on today’s papers, they had an article on how our new NDP song manages to evoke strong comments from our fellow Singaporeans. Heck, funny clips and parodies were even made weeks after the song aired on wherever. I have to admit the one where they edited Stephen Chow movie snippets into it really strike a laughing chord in me. I don’t really want to put the video up but it’s real easy to google it on Youtube. As a […]
