Mummy or Maid?

Though I wanted to babywear since last time, I actually do not know the proper way to do it yet. *embarassed*


Anyway, so I went to a mum&baby shop where I could test and try it out and decide what I want. But then I actually prefered designs of the slings from other online sources, so I contemplated. Ended up going to the shop so I could physically test it out and at least get some proper guide, and had to settle for some ready available designs. Hmmmm wat to do...

OVer the wekend, we went to Pavillion with the whole family including mum and dad. And so I carried AIR2 in the sling while AIR1 was in the stroller. Mum went into a shoe shop and I decided not to follow, so we waited outside. Not too long after, a maid with a stroller and a child and some shopping stood outside the shop too. And it struck me - if not for Dad waiting with me (hub went off with AIR1 first), I'd look just like her - a maid, slinging a baby (that's what alot of Indonesians do with a sarong, anyway), waiting for the Madam shopping in the store. Unlike shopping complexes like One Utama, Mutiara Damansara area and Mid Valley, the babywearing community in Pavillion I guess is limited to the maids ;p

And I wasn't really into shopping so I more or less 'accompanied' mum walking into and through all the shops, and mum being Chinese, is very fair, and people wouldn't ever think we're related. So I guess I was bibik for the day....slinging baby and walking behind mum most of the time! :)
