    seoul-searching with my little family

    Just came back from our first ever family trip to Seoul. Withdrawal symptom is hitting me hard right now. Why must it end? Actually, I’d take that back. Travelling with a baby for 7 nights was just enough. Any longer, I would be questioning my life decisions.

    the second month

    You’d definitely be pooped on at least once by now. That literally happened today. I’ve forgiven you, my child.

    The second month didn’t get easier. We just got used to having a baby around. Thanks to my helper who is taking turns with me, I get to squeeze in some extra hours of sleep. On good nights, I can get by with 3-4 hours of uninterrupted sleep which I’m so thankful for. But sometimes, the baby boss decides to party up before his 3-hour sleep and what can I do about that? Nothing much but, wake up.

    life lately & a surprise baby shower

    I have not been updating my life here because typing is hard work – what pregnancy does to you! Jokes aside, fatigue from pregnancy is real so is pregnancy brain. All I could muster after a day’s work is lying down on my bed doing absolutely nothing. Believe me, I counted down to my maternity leave since week 10. Initially, I wanted to start my maternity leave at week 38 but, nah that so not happening! That being said, tomorrow is my last day in the office. I cannot be any more proud that I made it this far – being pregnant and working full time can be quite a feat.

    the second trimester’s kicks

    The second trimester is definitely a treat so far. My mood is lighter, my appetite is growing and I’m pretty convinced that I have some kind of pregnancy glow going on (or that could possibly be slaps of foundation on my face). Whatever it is, I’m feeling much better than the first trimester. Alhamdulillah 🙂

    life after the wedding

    How time flies. It’s been almost 3 months since we got married – no one is dead yet, kidding. Getting into the routine of things took us some time. Well, we know that it isn’t going to be easy, but we also know that it won’t be that hard either. Just take some getting used to (at least, that’s what we tell each other all the time).

    Things like, the doubling pile of laundry, the constant yakking coming from me about leaving hair/dust on the wet toilet floor and the wet sink (I still don’t get it!). These are just some of it. Also – Luq freaked out at how OCD I am about our room – just our room. There was once, I looked conflicted before leaving our room and he asked why. So I said, “the dresser is really messy… you didn’t place your ring box properly”. I guess you still learn new things about your partner every day.

    finally, a mrs…

    The only wifey thing I’ve done thus far was to unwrap a fillet-o-fish for my husband to eat while he was driving. 1o points for me, surely.

    Days leading to the big day was manic. I was still running errands the day before my wedding – only got to sleep past 2 am. And everything that could have gone wrong on the wedding day, did go wrong. I kid you not. First of many things would be, there wasn’t a chair at my dais – were you expecting me to sit on the stage with my mega-ass long train? Second, the Tok Kadi was 15 mins late for our solemnization – and, everyone else just had to be early on that very day. Well, those were just two of the many things… but heck it, we had a fantastic good time despite all that.
