Whom do you think I look like?

A couple of weeks ago, daddy and I were sort of discussing whom does bb look like. “Of coz me la” He claimed. Hehe… not only me but also most of my friends think bb looks very much like me. Daddy used to be upset when people said “lucky your son looks like mother”. He damn not syiok whenever people say that. He would complaint to me why those people talk lidat one. Hehehe…so today I am inviting you as the judge.

Left: Mommy said she was very fond of the scissors, look at her hair, hehe...she snipped her own hair when she was that young. Right: Daddy was a goody-good student, look at how handsome he was with that tie :)

That's me. I think I look very much like mom, so what say you?

Before and after

Before pregnant, everything seems perfect.

After pregnant, I lost count of the time I puked. I even cried after it. My pants are tight, I love to eat starchy food, cold and sweet soft drink, anything that is sweet - "yuck"!!!

My face and hair are so oily. I think I smell. I can't stand strong perfume. I feel lousy. I go to the loo so often and the loo stinks big time. I don't eat well. I have constipation. I can't listen to music. I feel sick all the time. Oh sunshine! Where are you?

The Nine Emperor Gods’ Festival

A back-dated post.
It was the most awaited festival of all for devotees of Nine Emperor Gods. Devotees celebrate the nine-day festival with a strict vegetarian diet. One reason why they are so popular is its magical power of answering prayers and grant wishes.

I have heard of its power since young but only recently have I had the opportunity to visit the temple. I decided to drag my family along to visit one famous Nine Emperor Gods Temple in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

We arrived at the temple in the afternoon. It was a gloomy day, the sky filled with ashes burnt from paper money nearby. I could hear birds chirping in cages. I saw a man with one blind eye directing cars to parking lots, another man who had one leg longer then another crossing the road in a clumsy way. There were beggers near the entrance asking for money. We passed through a long narrow passage that filled with stores selling beautiful cakes in the shape of tortoises embellished with Chinese best wishes words. There were also cookies, flowers, paper money, joss sticks, multicolour spinning fans and many more shiny blinking goodies. We bought some fancy cakes, joss sticks and paper money before heading for prayers.

The temple was choked-full with devotees. My husband and I had to take turn to pray so that one of us could keep an eye on bb, our son. I had to lift my joss sticks high up to avoid hurting people. The floor was extremely dirty. Unbelievably, some devotees dumped paper bags, joss sticks, rubber bands on the floor even though there were wastebaskets nearby. There were a few aunties with white outfits cleaning them with huge brooms. I had to watch out and skip away from them or they would swipe me like rubbish too. It was quite chaotic.

Frankly, I had no idea how to perform the proper prayers, I pray as usual telling the Nine Emperor Gods what I need him to help me with, in return I will be a nine full-day pure vegetarian. While praying around the temple, it started to drizzle. I quickly finished up with the joss sticks and headed to burn the paper money in a humongous cement hut. On the way there, many tea sellers approached me saying how good their teas are, one will find peace and safety if one drinks them. Wow! They cost RM5 for a tiny packet. I know all of them were there to make use of the occasion. I rejected their offer politely.

Later, we had our vegetarian fried Hokkien Mee( Fried thick noodle) and soya bean milk in a restaurant located inside the temple. It was very exhausting as there were charity organizations asking for money while we ate. We headed home after the meal. Bb was tired; he dozed off after having his feed in the car.

I have asked for something related to my career but it never happen instead something related to family came true pula. Not sure if my hubby asked for that or not. *Wondering*

While I was looking for my beading needle to fix daddy’s broken bracelet, bb went over to my dressing table. I looked at him in the mirror, wrapped him with my pearl lariat. Haha! He immediately removed it from his neck and told me “no, mommy”. I said “why?” “It’s nice what?”. He said “For girl girl not for bb one”. Haha! Luckily, he knows how to say NO, I was so afraid he like it and request more to put on his neck. Phew!

Then, he wanted to play with my eye shadow. I let him play with the brush but he wanted to paint my table with my eye shadow. I made him repeat after me this tongue twister “She sells sea shells on the sea shore”. He recited 3 times and I let him play.

This is what happened after some very quiet moment. What a disaster! Luckily, I am not a make- up person; I happened to leave these on my table after a wedding dinner on Saturday. Aiyoo…Got to get a new highlight eye shadow again.

Joining the Piggy-pig club

Hui sia is right, I am joining the piggy-pig club. Wow! Hui sia, you are very right, can pass to be a human pregnancy detector. Haha!. She told me the other day that she could sense me joining the club soon.

Yes, I am. I tested the pregnancy test kits 2 times with 2 different brands and has gone to the gynae to confirm and the most beautiful thing is I could see her heart beat. Since hubby has already informed his friends, I might as well share this good news with you guys. Well, Chinese is a bit “pantang” to inform people before 3 or 4 months. I just hope that everything goes well and baby is healthy. I have been feeling very sick and nausea-tic lately. I definitely need luck.
