Online shopping anyone?

I made an online purchase yesterday with online banking too. (this would be my first time using that combination la - aiyo, so jakun) haha anyway, I was told that delivery would take 2-3 days. Fine by me, I'm in no rush to receive the package.

But suddenly, this morning, not even 10am, and it was sitting on my table waiting for me already. Boy was I surprised. Never did I expect such efficiency. And it all came via Poslaju and not any other courier services.

There it was waiting for me....

I didn't unwrap it instantly la..cos I already knew what was inside...hehehe

It's Friday already!! Yipee!! I can't wait for tomorrow's event. It's gonna be my 2nd time, and I'll make sure I will not miss out on any camera-worthy shots. Yala, what to do, I'm cam-shy ma...

I'm entering Week 33 already and this morning I woke up actually feeling that I'm carrying something. Yeah, so now it is getting heavy. haha before this I didn't even notice the 'weight' except for it's expanding size. :D

But the funny thing is I was reading this article saying that by this time, I'll probably be getting disturbed sleep at night due to frequent urinating spells and also difficulty in finding a 'perfect' position to lie in bed. The first one - no, I don't seem to be experiencing that, unless I'm awake. Funny. But number two - yeah, sometimes, but usually I'm quite bonked when I get to bed at night I so far, thank God I'll sleep through till the next morning, just few minuted before my alarm goes off!

I'm excited....

We Walked, Walked and walked

Yesterday was a whole lot of walking for me. After my checkup, it was walk & shop time...

After my hearty lunch at Dome, yes I finally had my serving of Dome's Chicken & Mushroom pie while hubby had catch of the day. Yummy, both were...I loved the herb rice which came with the Catch of the Day, and the fish was nicely done. The Pie was as usual. But the Twister wasn't as good as it was before. It was a let-down.

Then, we set off for almost 4 hours or roaming around, shopping for some necessities before deciding it was time to go. LUckily we left when we left.

And after a short 1.5 hours of streched-out-legs resting, I set off for another adventure. This time close to home, but it was not short of another 2 hours of walking. Gosh. My legs weren't really THAT tired, but my problematic right ankle did shown some signs of relief when I finally sat down again. I love browsing around, in search of what I want...and perhaps on the lookout of a good bargain.

This morning, I woke up to some weird muscle ache in the hamstring. hahaha yeah, its weird, and some slight pain in my right ankle. But all's well now.

I'm planning what to wear for the event of saturday night. Yes, I'm going to KL Film Festival in PWTC. hmmmmm

Since I was going to be alone on Saturday, I decided to ‘explore’ 1U, this time it’s new wing to see what’s new, cos we’ve always been frequenting the old wing.

It still seems pretty much the same, except for some revamp on the GF. Managed to grab a bargain top for mum before spending lots of time in Parkson and then my tummy decided it was lunch time.

So I decided to head to Delicious. I’ve not tried the food there, it has always been the cakes. After pondering on the menu, I decided upon Smoked Salmon Angel Hair and Death by Chocolate. The Angel Hair comes in cream sauce topped with some caviar. It caught my interest and it tasted quite nice. I’m a sucker for anything in cream sauce. Hehe….

Smoked Salmon Angel Hair licked clean...

Death by Chocolate was tame…not as I expected it to be, somewhat much milder that that of similar in Dome. It was simple iced choc with vanilla ice cream.

Death by Chocolate

Somewhat I think I’ll drop by Delicious again. Something tells me that I wanna try more of their food.

But the highlight of my lunch was this couple (a mid-20s to early 30s lady with her mom) who were speaking Hokkien mostly, sitting next to me. So anyway, it didn’t really bother me until the fact that when my main came, the mum (let’s call her M and doter D) asked D what I was having. So she said it was pasta. Fine. They were talking about food, what they were having etc etc and it wasn’t my intention to eavesdrop but they were so close and I just could hear everything.

And when I finished with my pasta and went on to my drink, trying to take it in slowly and enjoying every bit of it, D asked M, this time it was something like ‘She’s pregnant and isn’t coffee bad or not good for pregnant ladies? Doesn’t she know about it? ‘ she paused and added ‘They should somewhat have similar food ‘pantangs’, right?’ They, referred to Malays, cos I looked Malay. And M told her that yeah, it’s supposed to be not good for pregnant people cos blah blah blah….then she added that maybe it’s because I was craving coffee. Pregnant women have weird cravings and their taste actually change a lot. And then D added, ‘Shouldn’t cold stuff be avoided?’ I was about to interject their conversation by answering to them that I was having cold choc and not coffee….but I held myself. I dunno who’d be more embarrassed. Hehe…and I was thinking to myself, I don’t have cold drinks very often, but since my mum and doctor told me its ok, so IT IS OK la….:)

And so their conversation on pregnant women went on and on, even up till I’ve ‘drank to my death’, paid my bill and left.

Bagan Lalang

Everytime I drive to Bagan Lalang for dinner, I will recall the times I used to cycle that same route on Sunday mornings. It was a real workout and a fun-filled time. I miss those times. There will be a group of maybe 4-6 of us cycling. Pit stops for drinks and meals were part of the itinery, either en-route to Bagan Lalang or on the way back. Somehow we never ventured further than that, but it was my dream to be able to ride with another friend all the way to Port Dickson. Hmmm I wonder if this will ever materialize?

Sunday’s dinner at our usual seafood shop was good. Cheap and good, as we always say, but it’s the distance to get there that doesn’t make it our weekly destination. We had garoupa, pari and bamboo lala and vege. And after so long, only then that we realized they serve nasi lemak too. But that wasn’t an option as it doesn’t go well with seafood. Probably next time. And for the first time since Hari Raya, I had additional rice! So I guess it’s either I was really hungry, or the rice portion was rather small.

And today, there was a network problem in the office. Of all days. And so I’m preparing my blog so when the network gets back, I’ll just post it up.
Luckily I found a ‘book’ which I downloaded sometime ago, so I’m actually reading it now. Otherwise, I really do not know how else to kill time. It’s called ‘Wow Mom!’.

And that was so yesterday. The network never came on till it was almost time for me to go I just left it as it is. I guess then i'll have more to do today :D

What a Sunday!

I just couldn't belive what I saw on my phone - I got a text message from my boss on a Sunday morning asking me to be at the office about noon, and the time was already 11am. Goodness....Hello, it IS a SUNDAY....

And when I thought he mentioned that we maybe asked to come back over the weekend to help finish some documents, I had in mind Saturday. And since my Saturday wasn't disturbed, I thought that we were not needed at all...haha, fat chance, I suppose.

I had already planned to stay in the whole afternoon with the telly until it was time to go to the airport to fetch hubby. And so my lazy-sunday was busted. Still rather groggy, I had to get myself ready and then go for my lunch la. Hmmm on my way out of the house then only I replied the message saying that I would be late.

And so here I am in the office, already done with what I could do, waiting for both the bosses to be back. I shall make my getaway soon! :P

In the begining

I've finally started one. It's always been in Multiply or mere notes in Facebook, and so after many weeks of pondering if I should actually switch, I did. I wonder if its a wise move, or it's just a emotional decision.

Well yes, I've been on an emotional roller coaster these 3 days, to be exact. One moment I'm up and cheery, the next I'm just picking up pieces, crying to myself while I watch telly and just wanting to break into tears, and I get really sensitive to alot of things. It is really terrible. And now I can relate to my friend telling me about her 'experience' going through it.

It's just that the thought of hurting people on the way, the outburst I create whenever this happens, I'm really sorry.

I've never felt this vulnerable, I don't seem to be able to control myself emotionally. Not very nice, I'd say.

Anyway, the weekend's here and I hope that I'll be able to hold myself up and pull it together. Sitting at home and relax maybe good, but then I fear that I'll be thinking too much and again, I may not 'overcome' it. Perhaps I'll just have to be around people and mask this. Nevermind. I'll find something.

No pics up this time, but I'll try to put something interesting in the near future. It's almost 32 weeks and I'm counting. Excited as I can be, I'm also very nervous and worried. Yeah, it's normal.

My dearest hubby, please bear with me. I just am not myself these few days and I hope it will not be this way long.
