#2 March 8, 2012. Yes to loungewear! Received my Forever 21 order, now waiting for the Victoria's Secret one. Woo Hoo!!!
** If you do not know already, F21's lingerie, lougewear items are final sales & are not refundable/returnable.
#3 Then the VS order arrived on the next day. Purchased a few more sets of loungewear in case I have to stay in the hospital longer than I expect.
#4 March 9, 2012.（＾ｰ^)ノBunny, wanna kidnap you can? Spotted this cute stuffed bunny at Safeway, ugh, time flies and Easter is just around the corner!
#5 Was browsing the luxury accessories & picking up some stuffs at Neiman Marcus. With the pink Prada, how cute the bag is! And I then stated this on my FB--A 27-week pregnant mum-to-be, a survivor and a pink slave (also just traded my eye whites for the pic effects @.@)
#6 March 10, 2012. Pic taken at Neiman Marcus on the same day as well. It's the double C earrings & it's pink m(_ _)m

#8 March 13, 2012. A cute Hello Kitty Bread Toaster that my good friend, Alice gave me, but I can never toast a perfect Hello Kitty face eh! Failed (~_~;)
#9 March 13, 2012. Leisure evening! Love how the sun's rays shinning through the sky & heavy clouds. Chean & I went on an evening stroll and that's the strong sunbeams and my bare face with tiny little generic Asian eyes o(^▽^)o
#10 Remember I once mentioned about baking Soya Milk Chiffon Cake? I did, and it turned out decent. Thanks YvonneS for the tips, yup, do not grease the chiffon pan, view the recipe H.E.R.E ^____^V
#11 Already pregnant for 7 month and I'm in the home stretch! The safest period to feed myself with nutritious traditional herbal soup. Look how huge & thick the fish maw (花膠) is, slurps~~
#12 Starbucks breakkie and decaf coffee are my best pals now. My current favorite? Hot Caramel Macchiato.
#13 March 15, 2012. Eww... This glucose tolerance test beverage tastes so bad. G.R.O.S.S!!! Guess what, the lab just called, super grateful that I passed the test despite my over-consumption of sugar lately @.@
#14 Dinner at Amu, a famous Japanese Sake Bar and Restaurant in Boulder.
#15 Great & fun dinning experience~~ Just that I wish the seats are a little spacious, preggie Bev can hardly fit in the bar seat right at the narrow aisle.
#16 Adore tiny serving portions as always!
#17 March 17, 2012 (yesterday). The latest me before heading out for breakfast & shopping. It's a weekly ritual to fill my tummy with Asian food. Dim Sum here I come (again)!!!
Catch me now on Twitter or Facebook if you want to sneak peek my recent updates more frequently!
****************** The Real Joy ******************
I got so lucky in love, unbelievably lucky. Chean tolerates my ridiculous mood swing, hot temper (just sometimes) and sensitivity to every tiny thing in the past 7 months. Yes, I'd definitely put the blame on the hormonal changes and the extra poooooounds that caused me having uncountable sleepless nights.
Just yesterday, I woke up in the middle of the night to find myself penetrating by sudden coldness and shivering uncontrollably from inside out. It was pretty warm yesterday, perhaps one of the nicest weather we could ever ask for since Jan. I don't understand why that happened but I hysterically screamed my lungs out: "Darling, I'm freezing & dying!" Chean got up and checked on me, no fever or anything, he then stroke my head trying to comfort me and wrapped me in his arms. He must have thought I was having nightmare or something. Anyway, I did go back to sleep peacefully. Until 7a.m this morning, drenching sweats abruptly woke me up and this time, my bed, comforter and pajamas are all wet as if I were sleeping on a broken waterbed. I broke down in tears while murmuring to myself: "I just want a good night's sleep and why all these nasty things restricting me from practicing my basic human rights?" Chean got up again, rushed to the bathroom and handed me a dry towel. He then stroke my head trying to comfort me and wrapped me in his arms. I did go back to sleep peacefully and soundly again.
Finally, at 11a.m, I survived the awful night. Woke up again, washed up and went downstairs to seek morning hug. Guess what I saw, a warm Starbucks breakfast sandwich with a hot decaf Caramel Macchiato (exactly like pic#12) sitting on our dinning table. "Morning," we greet each other, we hug and we have breakfast together, just like what we usually do on a typical, casual & laid-back Sunday. Then I feel the real joy silently fills the room, and paints our hearts with the color of happiness.
#18 Thank you darling for being such an awesome husband, unequivocally. And to the little one who's now intensively rehearsing her self-invented martial art inside me, you are utterly lucky to have such an awesome father. I wish you are as loving and as talented as your dad.
p/s: Don't worry, I'm feeling great & energetic now. Guess I was just too tired after shopping all day ;)
Love you two,
