Short rant

Monday, April 28, 2014
Thought I'd update the blog a little since I'm waiting for my macs to come before heading to bed.
I have been eating supper NON-STOP since I gave birth. Terrible, terrible. But I'm always feelin' hungry nowadays?!?!
Strange thing is that my weight has been dropping! I'm already below my pre preggy weight btw! :O
I guess that's one of the perks of breastfeeding.

Anyway, I've been feelin' like shit for the past week or so, physically. And it seems to be getting worse.
As I'm typing this I feel as though my brain is being fried. Ugh, I hate feeling unwell. And I hate the fact that I can't kiss or get too close with my baby. Boo hoo!
On the side note, Little A has finally started taking the bottle a little. Baby baby steps, but we're getting there.

J took me out to the movies today. Weirdo chose a day that I'm feelin' unwell to head out but I'll take it. Really needed a breather anyway. We caught Captain America! Have been wanting to catch it for awhile now and we were actually pretty surprised it's still showing in the cinemas. I loved the movie. Marvelfan4eva!!! Yay!!!

Recently I've been getting alot of snide comments and remarks about being a bf-ing SAHM.
Easy for you to say, because it's not you. You don't have to be the one waking up every 3 hours to feed her.
Yes, I may get rest in the noon sometimes, but I barely get to sleep 8 hours in a row at a time.
Many people tell me I'm lucky because I can work from home, but that's where you're wrong. FYI, I work from home, but I have other assignments to handle and my personal online boutique as well. It isn't easy even with the help of my MIL (Which I am very thankful for).

Aite. Enough of ranting, my macs is here!

Little A's 1st trip to the baby spa

Thursday, April 24, 2014
Brought Little A to the baby spa some time last week.
Decided against bringing her to the pool because of the chlorine, shall wait till she's slightly older. 
My fatty baby enjoying her massage
Just chillin'
Finally into the mini pool
Bwahahaha, her reaction was so funny! Should've video-ed it down, what a waste!
The staff teaching Little A how to swim
Amused
Little A was pretty stoned throughout, she didn't exactly swim much
HEHEHE
Just floatin' around
Gettin' bored
I love lookin' at her frm the glass panel
Just check out her lotus thighs
Hmm???
She kept standin' around
Maybe cos she's not used to it?
And... we're done!

-----

I didn't like that when I was standing in front of Little A and there were ppl standing outside, the staff just turned Little A to face out at people who were looking. I felt really uncomfortable with that, she's there to enjoy herself, not an animal in the zoo. 

Price wise I felt that it was abit steep? $55 for 20-30mins.

Overall I thought it was just an okay experience, not good or bad.
I'd rate em' 2.5/5.

If you ask if I'd bring her back there again, probably not. Might try other outlets though.

If you're interested, the outlet I went to was at:

5 Ways To A Successful Relationship

Wednesday, April 23, 2014
In collaboration with Love Out Loud Asia...

Disclaimer:
This post is based entirely on my own personal thoughts. To each his own. You may have different views. I do not claim to be an expert in relationships, in fact I've made tons of mistakes myself. There are times I've expected too much, been too dependant, been too suspicious or sensitive over things & had the same tiff for the umpteenth time. There were times I didn't even know what we were fighting about. To put it simply, relationships are not easy. It'll not always be rainbows & butterflies. 

-----

Here are my opinions on 5 Ways To A Successful Relationship:

"Courage means to keep working in a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods."

Trust.
This is something I can't help but to stress. Trust. Trust is the most fundamental value in a relationship.

Trust is the key to any relationship because without it you cannot have the confidence to share your feelings, memories, emotions, and yourself with someone else. It involves a degree of vulnerability as you share personal details of your life with your partner and it’s deepened and validated when you adhere to the boundaries of the relationship. When you extend your trust to someone else you have no doubt in your mind about the honesty of the person.
 Trust is so important is that without it, a relationship cannot survive. Cheating and lying can break it and in turn can create problems. If it is not restored the relationship will lead to stress, anxiety, reduced intimacy, and can potentially dissolve the relationship. Trust is the foundation of a relationship. If you cannot trust then how can you love? Without love no one can extend their heart fully. A relationship begins with trust and it is the building blocks to a long-lasting relationship.

Communication.

"The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together."

Communication is another principle you definitely need to have in a relationship. Constant & consistent communication. Don't be afraid to voice out your opinions & say what you want. If you don't say, who is ever going to know? Tell your feelings; sadness, happiness, anger, anything. Express yourself. If there is something bothering you, learn to speak up. Bottling up feelings will only worsen things between the both of you overtime.

Compromise. 

"It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognise each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is." 

Compromise is an inherent part of a relationship. You will have to sacrifice for it to work. If you want to have your way all the time, stay solo. It's all about finding a healthy balance. Both people in a relationship must understand the necessity of compromise and sacrifice in a relationship to make it work.

Remember, a good relationship is always built on compromise and a great deal of give & take from both parties.

Forgive & forget.
All couples have their fair share of ups & downs. If your partner has hurt you and even if things are changed between the both of you, it's best to forgive him. Forgiving and forgetting is the key to a better relationship.

Commitment.
A relationship requires a lot of work and commitment. 

Commitment is a relationship is the act of giving yourself, in whole, to the other person and the relationship. Staying faithful to the other person, being there whenever the other person needs you and putting up with the other person, no matter what happens.

Commitment cannot be a single minded decision, with one partner issuing all the rules and conformities, it has to be a mutual agreement of needs and requirements in a future you want to share together, with commitment levels you present to each other open to compromise and discussion. 

"You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity."

GE NAILS | Mobile Manicure Services

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Finally introducing to y'all my new nail sponsor, GE NAILS by Jeanne. 

Just to share...
Being the curious and kpo person that I am, I actually asked her why not JE NAILS since Jeanne starts with JE right?
Jeanne actually told me because GE NAILS actually sounds like GENIUS!
Totally brilliant please? I would've never thought of that!

-----

Anyway, let's get started!

I told Jeanne I couldn't decide on what I wanted and decided to let her do anything she wanted. 
Yes, I know, I'm always so indecisive... 
Jeanne workin' hard on my nails
Shinin' the light onto the polish

AND VOILA!

My right hand;
&left hand;
Did I mention I've always hated short nails?
In case you haven't realized my nails ALWAYS has extensions on.
This is the first time I'm keeping em' short and I'm proud to say that I love it! 

CHECK OUT MY MAD ADORBS TOE NAILS AS WELL OMG
Yes, I know my feet looks supa fugly but please just focus on the nails k!

BTW HAVE Y'ALL NOTICED ANYTHING DIFFERENT ABOUT HER SALON YET?

*DRUMROLL*

...

...

...

Yes, what's special about Jeanne is that she runs a MOBILE SALON.
She provides nail services to your doorstep!
Freakin' awesome or what?! 

Quoted from her, "You can now save the hassle of travelling out for nails appt but at the ease of your convenience at your comfort zone. You can now work from home, watch your favourite Drama, lie on your favourite sofa while you get your nails done."

I can't even begin to describe what a GENAILS (GENIUS) #punintended idea that is! 

Ever since I've had Little A I don't exactly enjoy headin' out without her,
I cannot describe how elated I was to have found that Jeanne goes to you, as long as you're ANYWHERE in SG *Happy dance*

She was also tellin' me that some customers have told her that her price is pretty steep...
But tbh, I find it absolutely reasonable!
Just check out how much stuff she has to bring just becos she wants it to be convenient for you!!!
FYI, she had to lug two freakin' huge suitcases up my 4 storey place, with NO LIFT, all by herself!
Glitter, glitter everywhere ~
Half of the GEL nail polishes that she brought over.
Ps/ She has normal nail polishes as well
Just some of her many designs! 
I'm eyeing on afew of em', can't wait to get my next set of nails done alr!
Can you guess which is my fav charm? 
Hehehe, more charms ~
Can't wait till Little A gets older so I can spam charms on my fingernails! 
Jeanne also gives every single customer a new personal set of nail files & buffer as she believes in personal hygiene. 
Tbh, this is the first time I've ever heard of nail salon's giving out/ having a NEW personal set for EVERY SINGLE CUSTOMER. 
Plus points for her! +++
Tee hee, my personal set!

ANYWHERE YOU ARE IN SG, SHE GOES TO YOU

Went for a short meeting & rushed over to our relatives place right after, some time last week.
Walked over to Jurong point to walk around and have our dinner. Decided to settle for some Chinese restaurant cos the queue at Din Tai Fung was so long! Was abit upset cos I was secretly craving for XLBS! :( But oh well, at least we managed to settle down and filled up our tummies pretty quickly. I was so famished!
Everything tasted really good! Not sure if it's cos I was starving or they just served really good dishes. Ha ha.
Min min & Little A ^^
Lookin' confused
Ended up at Fairprice, AGAIN. I've no idea why we always end up there somehow! Hahaha.
Yay! Happy Little A! :)
Little A's so lucky to have sooooooo many people doting on her :')
Waited for FIL to come fetch us & headed home.
Changed into her pjs & ready fo' bed!
She keeps biting her hand and sucking the bottom of her lips these days.
I wonder if it's becos she's teething? :O
Her daddy tryna kiss her
"What are you doing to me??!??!!"
"No, go away!!!"
It's days like these that make me feel like pushin' on
It's days like these make me feel so so thankful :)
