Happy 1st Bee-day, C!

Dear C, It’s been almost 1.5 years since your mum told me that she was expecting you. That moment when she told me about you was one filled with mixed emotions, especially since we’ve lost your older siblings previously. Your arrival took a huge rock off my chest and it was being replaced by pride and joy. Baby boy, you did well. The last year was tough, spending most of my time an ocean away from you meant that I couldn’t cuddle you, spend time with your parents or be there when your mummy needed help. Yet, I am glad that even from afar, I’ve always been kept up to date with your progress with the daily photo / video.  As you turn ONE, I wanted to let you know that we want to celebrate all those moments – The first time I saw you and snuggled up with you, the first time I heard you cry when you were separated from mummy, to the first few steps that you took unassisted right in front …

Turning Twenty-Nine

My favourite photo of me with my beloved Godson ❤️ I turned Twenty-Nine! Wow, how time has just flown past in an instant. It seems like yesterday when I was celebrating my Twenty-First birthday at home with my friends & family. It’s really hard to imagine that I am in my last year of my twenties. As I hit my late twenties, I started to prefer an intimate birthday setting in comparison to the bashes that I used to have. Just like the last 2 years, we headed out of the country for a holiday and I must say that I am loving this new tradition.  This year’s celebration was a relatively quiet one filled with loads of food and just taking a slow stroll down the streets of Ubud. I am super grateful for the cake that the staff from the hotel gave me after singing the birthday song. I used to be one who would make lists to accomplish for the length of my birthday year and has since ceased doing so. It …

Turning a year older

This year’s birthday is probably the best I’ve ever had – a surprise birthday party the night before we flew off, weekend trip to Perth, spending quality with my bestie and her family, birthday dinner at my favourite Ciao Italia and having churros on a rainy winter birthday night with my fiance and girlfriend from University. My last birthday before marriage was a success. In the year to come, I can only hope that I’d have more energy to deal with more wedding planning and not turn into a Bridezilla. Time has really flown by and looking back really helps me appreciate all the trials and adversities that I’ve been through. It made me the person I’ve became and I hope it would continue to mold me as I take on new roles – a wife, a mother, a daughter and a sister in law. Cheers to another year of crazy adventures!
