Happy 2nd Year Wedding Anniversary Baby!

27 May 2009 (Wednesday)

As the title of this blog entry suggests, Alan n I celebrated our wedding anniversary the whole of today. He took leave and brought me out. Yay!

In the morning, we went to our gynae again to have our routine check-up. It was also time for us to find out on the gender of the child but the Naughty One had his / her legs crossed and refused to allow us a peek into the future. However, Alan is still very convinced that it is a Son because of a little hint the baby gave. But I'm not announcing till when I am sure. Baby @ 15wks 4days old

After the appointment (we were awfully grateful Dr Wong wasn't his usual late self), I took a blood test and collected some medication before we headed to the delivery suites. Quite OK and the father even has a comfortable arm chair and the tv to watch when I am screaming and tearing my hair out. How considerate of them!

The maternity wards were all full and we couldn't pop our heads into the wards but perhaps on our next trip, we would be able to get a clearer picture of what a suite (no less please!) would look like. The baby sleeps with the mummy in this hospital and that's nice.

After we left the hospital, we made a bee-line to Pavilion. We parked at Alan's office and strolled there and went to check out what movie there was to watch. 450PM I Corrupt All Cops (by Eason Chan, Tony Leung etc. Then, we hopped over to Red Box to croon and croon and enjoy a buffet luncheon set up and a free flow of soft drinks. hahaha. Per pax was RM18++ only! OMG!

After we had our lunch and screeched to our hearts'content, we left at 3pm and wandered around Pavilion. We went into Parkson and realised that they are going to have a Babycare sale from this weekend onwards. OH YEAH! Then, we went to share a toast at Toastbox at the foodcourt so I could take my pill.

The movie was quite interesting and depicted HongKong police in the 60s and 70s and how before colonial influence they were all (or mostly) corrupt. Quite an eye-opener.

Dinner was a stroll away at Starhill Gallery. We ate at Jgoya, a Japanese buffet restaurant which we had eaten at last Valentine's Day. At RM100 per pax, it was mighty steep and not worth the while because I wasn't very hungry.

AGain, I hung out at the soup section most but tried a variety of other stuff and left some space in my tummy for the wide array of desserts. There were macaroons, cookies, fruits, tarts, pies, cakes and HAAGEN DAZ icecream!

We got home at around 10+pm and went to bed by midnight after berating our daughter for forgetting our anniversary. hahahaa.

A New Best Friend?

Tonight, after a nutritious home-cooked dinner, we headed to Mango Mania at Bangsar to commence our 2nd Year Anniversary Celebrations (hahah that's just an excuse)!

We shared a mango cheesecake (low fat, low sugar and not that creamy and shiok) and I had a frozen mango yogurt and Alan had a Mango drink called Cube Cube- Mango. hahaa.

Then, we made a new Best Friend at a shop next to Mango Mania. :D

On Saturday 23 May 2009,

Alan and I refused to wake up till around 1030am. We called for a Mac Donald's breakfast and lazed in the house until the late afternoon. Then, we zoomed off the The Gardens where we had a late "lunch"at 6pm and caught the 630pm Night At the Museum II.

It was a deliciously funny and entertaining show and the monkey, Dexter, in my humble opinion, stole the show :) After the movie, it was almost 830pm and we roamed around Borders (I bought a Baby book again) and then left for Chinatown to have our dinner.

Alan (errr and I?) wanted to try the Hokkien Mee stall which had been featured on Astro channel as a recommended stall to try. We parked near a hotel and then ventured ourselves to look for the place along Jln Hang Lekir.

Using the Iphone GPS (a very useful device, I must add), we arrived in one piece after walking through the cramped lorongs filled with fake LVs and Guccis. I didn't even take a second glance and just paced through speedily in order to get out of the way of seedy characters.

Finally, we arrived at the stall and boy was it crowded. We were directed to our seats and ordered (black) Hokkien mee for two and cabbage + meat "ball"soup and two glasses of barley water.

In the end, after the meal, both of us were sorely disappointed at the non-praiseworthy noodles and declared that the barley drink was the saving grace of our dinner. *sigh*

Sunday 25 May 2009

Again we had to wake up early (read 730am) to bring Coco to obedience school. He didn't do a good job today so we were half relieved when the trainer postponed Coco's exam (and the rest of the class') till middle of June, instead of next week!

To satisfy my cravings, we hopped over to the food court next door and ordered some sinful breakfast. I had chicken chop with black pepper sauce and Alan had lamb chops with the same sauce.

Then, it was home sweet home and all five of us (2 adults, 1 little baby in womb and 2 doggies) fell fast asleep. ZzzzzZz

Actually, at 5pm, Jay Jay was slated to commence another 10 sessions , this time of Novice training. However, the Pregnant Mama cajoled and threatened and pleaded and in the end, we didn't turn up for the lesson. heehe.

We went, instead, to the Bangsar Pasar Malum. The mangosteens were beckoning and we bought 2kg worth. We also picked up some prawns and two big pomfrets which were fast flying off the counter of the fish monger's. We also bought Rm28 worth of vegetables from the Indian lady again.

Next stop: TMC where we bought around RM200 worth of groceries to fill the bellies of the husband, the wife and the child. haha. Then, an idea struck us: We left quickly for home and Alan whipped up a storm in the kitchen and dished up pork chops and aglio olio. It was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!
