Leaving on a Jet Plane at 25 weeks

The hassle of getting a letter from my doctor to certify that I am still fit to fly was totally unexpected. It took me 3 days and 2 trips to the hospital to collect the letter before my flight to Singapore tomorrow (Yes, blame it on the nurse's SOP and my increasing level of forgetfulness). Although it will only be a 1 day trip there for 3 business meetings, I am still excited. It would be another first for me to have Peanut on board with me, in me! :)))

What happened last week:

1) I attended my first baby shower party - it was to celebrate Lisa's soon-to-pop-out prince! The games were a lot of fun and I hope to be able to play them at my baby shower (if I do have one). Most importantly, it was nice to catch up with everyone ever since Lisa's wedding 2 years ago. Where did time go?!!!

2) Had a marathon session of the Korean version of F4 series, aptly named Flowers Before Boys. The mister was away for 3 days to attend a friend's wedding and I had the whole screen and room to myself. So I became a naughty girl and watched the series from morning till night till the next morning until I got done with the entire series! I didn't get much sleep during that weekend, I must say and I hope Peanut wasn't mad at his mama. On another note, mama fell in love with Kim Hyun Joong, who played the character of Ji Hoo. It was so frustrating that the heroine didn't choose him in the end. Such irony! However, this Korean version definitely stood out from the Taiwanese and Japanese versions. Highly recommended to watch  if you have the time to kill and if you want to go back to your high school days of going boy-crazy! :)))

What happened/is happening this week:

1) The mister bought a keychain of Kim Hyun Joong (KHJ) when we ate at the Korean Village in Ampang. The big deal about it is that the tiny thing cost RM15 and I feel spoilt! I am 31 going on 32 afterall... But I still can't help smiling looking at it everyday. We wanted to get the poster but it certainly wasn't worth the price at RM50! The mister suggested that I do a collage of KHJ and he would send it to the printer to make a banner out of it. The result, "Even bigger, better and cheaper!" Tsk tsk. Now I just need to find time to do that. I hope Peanut doesn't feel neglected :///

2) Penny Neverland, the bestie, got us girls together to enjoy the promotional buffet at Jogoya in Starhill. I have not been to that restaurant in ages, or since 4 years ago, to be exact. When it first opened, my ex-colleagues and I frequented the buffet 3 times in a span of 2 months. Needless to say, we got sick of the place. And I haven't gone back ever since. But when Penny told me of the Buy 1 Free 1 promotion, I obviously couldn't resist and ended up pigging out with the girls. I am glad I did as we had a good time being just girls and dishing out on anything and everything.

3) As mentioned earlier, I will be flying off to Singapore tomorrow. Charles & Keith, wait for me! I need to stock up on my flats!!!

4) We are gearing up for the Baby Fair that's going to be held in Midvalley this weekend. I am doing my 'stock take' and 'asset management' on the inventories that have been passed down from the mister's sister. But it still seems like there's a whole truckload of stuff to get! Oh dear mister, we will brave this together! I sure hope that my folks who are coming up to KL will also 'lend a helping hand' to look for the best deals and steals :D Speaking of the folks, they are back from the States and I can't wait to check out their loot for me and Peanut. Hehehe :)))

Okay, time's up. Need to get to the airport in 5 hours. Peanut, are you ready for your virgin flight? :D

Either a Fortune-Teller or a Big Time Joker

Yesterday was the full detailed 2D scan of Peanut at Dr Tan's. Peanut is only 23 weeks old and already declared 'very handsome' by the doc. And he added that no money should be wasted for a 3D scan.

So I cleverly asked, "Are you not equipped with a 3D scanner here? Is that why?"

But of course, doctors always tend to be cleverer. He pointed to his 2D scanner and elaborated on its multi function features (which included transforming into a 3D scanner at the click of a button.... why of course... as if you didn't see that coming).

He ended his explanations nicely with, "I still don't want your money. So you can forget about doing the 3D scan here."

Wow! First, he's a Fortune-Teller (or a big time joker???).

"Peanut will be very handsome," he repeated for the 3rd time. I couldn't help but to roll my eyes. I am cynical that way. But the mister was laughing all the way.

"The compliment(s) wasn't meant for you, Mr Len," I had to remind him. Ini orang memang manyak suka shiok-sendiri.

Anyway, back to the Fortune-Teller. He's now helping us to save money too.

I really like this life lah.

Especially since I escaped a traffic summon this morning as well. The guy was printing the summon ticket for the car parked next to mine when I scurried there. Boy, I sure made it in record time but not without heaving heavily and smiling meekly at the law enforcement officer.

Talk about having baby luck! :)))

Footnote: The difference between a 2D and a 3D scan

2D scan (Presenting to you again, the Handsome Peanut at 13 weeks)

3D scan (taken randomly from some picture online)

Apparently, 2D scans are meant to scan right through the organs and everything else to make sure that the baby is developing and growing well in the tummy. For example, there are no leakages in the heart or deformed kidneys and also to measure the bone sizes of the thighs, arms, etc.

As for the 3D scan, it may really be used to see if the kid's going to be a future heartbreaker. 

(But then again, I got a doctor who's also a Fortune Teller... so dum dee dum)
