am so glad the weekend is here again. nothing beats spending the weekend just lazing around the house. having some cg friends over soon and the house is clean and tidy. always loved this feeling of a house being cleaned, especially when you watched your husband hard at work at it. and i appreciate it much!

my mum in law is making black herbal chicken soup for us, yum yums! and tomorrow we're going to celebrate another dear friend's mr chong birthday with another round of buffet. its really amazing the amount of food we can eat when we all get together. plus there's another round of bbq when the husband and him are going to celebrate together. thats what we do, eat, ha!

this is completely random. saw my sis last week with her cg after gen rev and this was our conversation.

sis: i bought you wish toy

me: huh?! wish toy?! (the foodcourt was very noisy)

sis: no! fish toy!

me: (very puzzled) fish toy? what fish toy? (i was thinking the baby not out yet, so fast she buy toys for him)

sis: noooo!!! fish toy!!!!

at this point, i went over to asked her what fish toy and its actually fish oil capsule. as she's wearing braces, thus the lisp hahahahha...

sis: must eat ah, good for the baby's brain.

me: but what happens when my brain got too good and i became too clever?

sis: (rolling her eyes) that will never happen.

see how much she loves me, hahaha... but i felt very touched that she bought it for me. its her way of showing her love. though i will really my best to eat it as the capsule is still big by my standards and it has a fishy smell, ewk.

thank you!

stayed home today as my tummy was upset with me. had the runs but now feeling much better. still i think i have to see a doctor to get the all wonderful piece of paper to make staying home legal, ha!

had my birthday yesterday. the night before when i was in bed, the husband surprised me with a cake in bed! we were sleeping when he suddenly went out. i thought he was going supper with the guys or something cos i fell back asleep soon. only knew what happened when he brought the cake in. sometimes i'm truly amazed at what he can surprise me with.

then during the day at work, one of my longest friend who's also working at the same place with me came to surprise me with cake and flowers! it was just so sweet and fun.

i think its true that as you get older, the birthday celebrations don't matter anymore. so long as you spent it with the people you love, its not so much the scale, but rather the heart and sincerity thats in it. the presents don't matter, unless its a huge inheritance from a long-lost uncle or striking the toto, ha.

guess what it matters most, is that people remember thats its your day and offers you their best wishes for you. and i'm grateful that people remember me.

not alot of words

finally! i've pop by to write an entry, ha!

maybe a summary. ok, here goes my usual random spaghetti train of thoughts.

well, we know the baby is a boy. he is currently 23, going 24 weeks as of this entry. he likes to kick around the same area of my tummy. likes to kick alot, his father takes that as a sign of him being a striker. his name is being settled. don't really care if other friends says its quite common, as his name has a good meaning and biblical story behind it. campaigning with his dad to put in a middle name too, ha!

current favourite past- time is to just sit and watch my tummy moved. everytime he does his kicks, it feels so magical. and always makes me laugh when i see the little protrusions. he is so adorable, i tell you. and the first time the father felt him kick, priceless. its just fascinating and amazing how the baby is formed. indeed God really went into the little details when making us. we are truly fearfully and wonderfully made by Him.

oh! and we passed our first year anniversary with...... out any celebrations! haha not that it matters anyway. though i did casually asked him if he wants to do anything, and he gave me a non-commital reply and me having no idea what to do, just leave it as that. so when that day came, nothing happened. but he surprised me 2 days later when he came to pick me up after work.

we were in the car when he asked me to look for a cd in the compartment and when suddenly this bunch of flowers came out of nowhere! i mean i saw at the corner of my eye that he was trying to take something out at the back seat but i was thinking oh maybe he's also looking for the cd and then he handed me my first bouquet of flowers for our first year! i went aw, darling flowers! and he was like all smirky face, and then i proceeded to asked him where he got the flowers and how much it costs, hahahaha. very romantic of me.

had an impromptu birthday cake while having dinner with friends of the forest. shared it with mrs tan as our birthdays are a day apart. and planning our own birthday celebrations today. second year we'll be doing it together. last year was at botanic gardens. this year? hmm, have not decided yet.

will be going for gen rev camp this year. after 5 years, looking forward to it. going with no expectations but mainly to enjoy the praise and worship. its freaking awesome when it leads to the free flow of worship. that tangible prescence of God, the touching waves of love enveloping you, the hopes and desires in your heart being fulfilled, you have to be made of stone not to know that God is real.

parents are on a jet setting lifestyle. went to redang, china and koh samui. holiday troopers are they.

parents in law are currently staying at our place while they're house hunting. its quite nice to have them around. had a pleasant surprise one day when i saw the neatly stack of folded clothes and freshly pressed shirts in my room. that was the first time my ratty sleeping t-shirt could have ever felt more dignified! haha...

just experiencing alot of grace and favour around. people giving up seats for me in the train and buses. strangers giving me the right of way, friends and family rubbing my tummy and being happy for us. not taking things for granted and just being of good cheer.

so now i'm living my days as they are and eagerly waiting to carry him in my arms!
