Another learning experience....

Two Sundays ago, my Mum, the gals & myself went to Hong Kong and scheduled to be back on 19th May 2013.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Emma & myself came back earlier.  We took the Tuesday night flight and reached Sg in the wee hours of morning.  This trip was extremely tired.

First of all, Hong Kong is a place that I have a love-hate relationship with.  I love their food & shopping but I hate the crowds and the lack of space there.

Secondly, the air in Hong Kong was bad and not to mention that its not as clean as Singapore in terms of the public places.  Plus it does not have child friendly facilities like baby changing places except for shopping malls like IFC, The Elements or more well-established restaurants like Yung Kee & Din Tai Fung. 

The funny thing is that Claire commented to me that the toilet in Din Tai Fung is very nice. 

It was Emma's first trip to Hong Kong and she doesn't take it too well there.  She hates the lack of space & constantly constrained coz I cant let her roam free like in Singapore.  She was okie during the first 5 days except for an eczema attack.

Out of the blue, she contacted stomach flu.  This made her extremely cranky and the whole household (my Auntie's place) unable to have a good night sleep.  I bought her to see the PD at Jordan instead of the usual one in Central (coz he dun open on Sundays).  The Jordan PD, Dr. Lee gave me some medication but Emma's condition dun seem to improve especially her fever doesn't subside.  Not only that Murphy's Law kicked in, the thermometer was spoilt!!!!

At 2am, Tuesday morning, I was freaked out by Emma having feverish fits.  In the end, I decided to book the flight back home at night.  But before i did that, I went to see Dr. Lee to get a letter certifying that it is alright for Emma to fly.  There, Dr. Lee commented that I should not have bought Emma out to travel and the best age for children to travel is 4 years old.  I was pissed off by his remarks, what further pissed me off is the political remarks of Mr. LKY.  I just dun understand why the Hongkies think that Singapore is an oppressed country.  Without Mr. LKY, Singapore won't be where she is!  Idiotic.... 

The moment I reached Sg, I bought Emma to see Dr. Irene Chan for a second opinion.  She commented that the medication dosage that Dr. Lee gave to Emma is too strong.  No wonder, Emma was so cranky & weak when taking his medication.  What i learn from this is I should have brought Emma to see Dr. Chow instead of Dr. Lee in Hong Kong....

Boy, this whole ordeal made me so tired that I managed to regain a bit of strength.  The next thing i need to do is to clear up the house and starts my job search.

Emma is my younger one who is turning 14 months old in 2 weeks time.

She is my "Sammo Hung".  I called her that coz she is chubby but super agile.  She can so fast at times that I cant even stop her.

She is very active and she is only still while watching TV or sleeping.  She is definitely a bundle of joy to me.  I must confess at this moment, i dotes her more than Claire coz of her cheeky, mischievous and bubbly personality.

I guess i must enjoy her now as much as i can before she grows too fast for me to catch her cuteness!

Rusty, dusty and dirty...

It has been a while since i last updated my blog... So i can say, this blog has been rusty, dusty and dirty.

So much changes had been happening in my life.  The best thing that occurred is Emma, my 2nd born.  She just turned 13 months and it just seemed like yesterday that I had given birth to her.

I find it hard to do regular posts on this blog, it could be due to lack of time or perhaps, blogging is no longer my priority.

Hopefully, i will pick it up again... Like meeting up with old friends and catching up....

Asperger Syndrome?

This is what alot of ppl suspected Claire has... For me, i deemed it as a form of personality inherited from PK.

But alot of outsiders (including her childcare teachers) had highlighted to me about this possibility. Now, i just have to bring her to the polyclinic, get referrals to see the specialists at KKH for assessments n stuff to determine whether she has Asperger Syndrome.

God just help me.

Woke up at 3.41am to answer the call of nature and realised that PK is not sleeping.... Went to get him back to bed...

Guess what, I m the one that can't get back to sleep. Piglet is going to HK next month with Mum at Mum's request, or rather HK Aunt's request.

Piglet is funny, when we asked her, "Do you want to go visit Yipo in HK?" She shook her head. When we told her that she will be taking the aeroplane to visit Yipo, she did not answer us. After a while, she told us, "I want to find Yeh yeh and Yipo ah!"

For me, I suddenly have this notion to visit Piglet in HK and helped Mum to bring her back (almost towards the end of the trip). My only problem is whether my work enables me to take leave? I m researching the air ticket's prices to Hong Kong, its either i take budget airline (serves no purpose coz the flight timing coming back dun coincide with Mum) or I take the same airline as Mum.

Quoting Sis => Can't bear to let her go, dun let her go.... (But the selfish me wants to have a break from her.)
Quoting Mum => Itchy butt syndrome....

1st Trip

I m at Changi Airport, T2 waiting for my flight... Super sleepy now... It will be a long day later at the KL office.

No agenda for this trip and i can only say, "Expect the unexpected." Having mixed feelings about this trip but it will be another learning trip for me.

Will miss Ms. Piggy n PK for these 3 days. I told Ms. Piggy about my trip yesterday and she seems to understand and yet dun what I m trying to tell her. She was awake for a while this morning before i left for the airport.... Perhaps, her way of saying, "Mama, have a good trip?"

Just so weird.....

Recently, i have been feeling distressed over my work...

Surprisingly, I did not turn to shopping to vent the unhappiness, emptiness inside myself. (That's the first time i will do!)

I wonder, what is happening to me? Especially, I have not been chanting or things like that.. in fact, I feel like I m just waiting for time to pass, for things to happen.... Just so weird....
