Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello! Hello!
Miss my blog so much! So sorry for ignoring you, but I've been super busy ( OKlah, I admit I've been taking a lot of naps also hahah but hey! I am making a baby ok! I need my rest! )
I just wanna update everyone about my pregnancy and what I've been doing as I am gonna deliver anytime now :) I am currently on 38 weeks, normally pregnancy is about 40 weeks.
So far, everything is good, been busy preparing for baby, so many things to buy and read about babies. My baby weighs about 3.1kg as of yesterday's visit, which the doctor said is a bit big for my size. Just last two weeks, the baby was 2.5kg and the doctor said when I deliver, should be about 2.8/2.9 kg but now, he already hit 3.1kg. Honestly, I am quite nervous, don't know if I can push my baby out or not hehe but should be ok, I leave it to GOD :) Please pray for me ok?
Let's talk about happier stuff! My new stroller!! Which I LOVEEEE!!!!!
When I first saw it, I knew I must have it
IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT :)
Introducing Mima Xari, Snow White :)
I know a lot people will say... sure dirty fast etc etc, but it's leather and easy to clean and you can even change the colours and buy accessories. Honestly, it's like getting a new handbag. I can't wait to stroll around with Baby M :) I also love the alien like egg shape as it looks posh and futuristic. The Mima Xari stroller is quite high ( can avoid backache and more eye contact with baby ) and you can change it to a carry cot.
Thank you mom, mom in law and brother in law who bought this gift for me!
Baby M is so blessed
I also consider myself very lucky as many of you told me that I am glowing :) Since then, I love to doll up and apply make up! I just want to look pretty during the second and third trimester. Here are some makeups which I recently bought which are my current favourites!
Decided to change my foundation and giving this a try, very moisturising and long lasting which I love and I like how it gives my skin this smooth refine texture. It's a perfect pair for my Chanel LeBlanc powder, which is the best powder I've ever used for this past years. I only use on special occasions. The rest of the time, I just prefer to put concealer under my eyes and to cover redness.
I am also now trying their LeBlanc cleanser, I used it once before, but it was a different one, I think that one is for moisturing and dehydrating. The sales person recommended this because she said I might look dull after giving birth, due to not enough sleep and tiredness. So I need the LeBlanc to brighten up my face :)
I love love love my new concealer from Marc Jacobs! It makes my eyes a lot brighter and can conceal all my redness along my nose and chin. I used to use the YSL touché éclat, but since I can't find YSL in Malaysia, I decided to give Marc Jacobs a try! You can get this at Sephora.
My latest addiction, the GIVENCHY lip liner which is waterproof, glides easily and I am so loving this colour, I can use it for everyday look!!! It also comes with a sharpener! Yay! Highly recommended! Got this from Sephora, if not mistaken it's RM 75.
No, I am not advertising for Sephora, it just that they carry good brands. My next target would be PHYTO for HAIR. My sister and Marcus has been using it and it's one of the best hair care brand. I also am looking forward to Tom Ford makeups, but I can't get in KL, nearest is Singapore. I bought one lipstick from them and totally love it, hopefully I can travel again to Singapore after my delivery.
Ok, enough of beauty products, let's talk about FASHION!
Our bikini line, Mermaid Dreams is now available at POP SHOP JAYA ONE, under THE SCHOOL
It will be placed there till end of October, so hurry! Get your bikini for end of the year holidays! Not only that, my clothing line KINSXSTYLE is also there and it's now on 20% discount :) ( the two racks on the right corner ) Go ahead and have a look at our material, padding and finishing :) Our materials are from Japan and comes with push up padding for some designs.
Just ask the promoter where is KINSXSTYLE booth and they will guide you incase you can't find it :)

The other day I felt like dressing up but I was so sick of wearing dresses, do I decided to try to fit in my tee from Dimepiece LA, which I order online and I can still fit! You know lah, American XS is still huge for me and it fits perfectly with the baby bump! This is one of my favourite tees from them.
AIN'T NO WIFEY
Btw, I just coloured my hair Ash Brown cos I know I will not have time once the baby is out and my hair condition is already quite bad! Half black half brown :( And I wanted to look nice when the baby arrives, yes I'm gonna pack some makeup to the hospital, perhaps my Marc Jacobs concealer hehe!
Also, I've been looking for a pyjamas for easy breast feeding :) Found this from LaSenza and totally in love with it. I bought one black and one grey. I would need a button top so that I can easily breastfeed my baby :) This one I can just pull it and the buttons will open smoothly and fast! SCORE!
Highly recommended for mothers who breastfeeds! I am wearing M size here. The looser, the better! Now you can breastfeed in style LOL!
OK, gonna end the post with a happy note.
Last week was Chris and Jolyna's ROM in Saujana, overlooking a beautiful serene lake and lush of greens as the background. I love weddings. I would cry every time. As the bride walks with her dad, I begin to cry and I noticed Lina also started to cry hahah I guess the Ooi sisters cry easily :)
It was a indeed a beautiful wedding, simple and elegant.
Congratulations again to the beautiful couple
Husband and I
Family :) Sister Lina and Cousin Sheena
Aunty Mimi, Jordan, Lina, Me, Sheena and Mom in Law
As you can see, the theme colour was white and khakis :)
Dress and blazer from H&M
Shoes from Melissa
Necklace from KINSXSTYLE
Cant wear heels till baby is out!
PS : During the wedding, I was hoping that my water didn't break! haha :P I told the baby, you better stay inside and be a good boy!
Perhaps the next post would be written when I already given birth, for latest updates, you can follow me on Instagram @Michiekins. I am sure many of you want to know my baby's name :) Till then,

I can't believe I left 60 days to go! ....... sorry still in shocked when I checked my " Im Pregnant " App, the app I used to keep track of my baby's growth :) I am still nervous but excited. Marcus and I just went for our Parentcraft course last Saturday and when I saw the EPIDURAL needle, I was woooahhhhhhhhhh, everyone in the auditorium was laughing in shocked how thick and long and needle is. For now, we opted for normal delivery birth and depends of my pain threshold if I need any mild dosage of epidural or not as a pain relief. I want to remain as calm as possible and listen to Rockabye Baby Lullabies in the labour room. I seriously can't wait to blog about my experience.
So far my third trimester hasn't really been treating me well. I loathe my first trimester, LOVE my second trimester and now, I just want my third trimester to pass quickly. It's not as fun as the second trimester but still much better than the first. WHY?
1. My back ache is sometimes unbareable. OMG I TELL YOU, I've never suffered so much of a backache before and I can't do many things. Sometimes I admit, I can forget that Im pregnant ( pregnancy brain ahhahha ) and I am quite CHOH LOR ( rough, clumsy ) when I am cleaning the house. Yes, I can't really stand dirt right now and I just want to clean and decorate my house only.... I even curi curi go shopping alone last two weeks when Marcus is not around at H&M Home to buy a few nice pillow cases just because I got a new sofa bed. I love/adore H&M Home! Ended up buying quite a few stuff! Their glass jars and storage bags are quite cool.
2. I am forever HUNGRYYYYYYY, and I only crave for sweet stuff! Most of the time I will think of ICE CREAMS! or cakes/desserts. But mainly ICE CREAMS! I am now currently 50kg and I think I have to add another 3kg before delivery. Later no strength to push my baby.
3. I am forever tired and sleepy. YES, I sleep a lot these days.... back like in first trimester. I wake up, eat then go back to sleep ( if the house is clean ) if not I will clean a bit first.
4. I am feeling hot altho the aircond and fan is ON! I can't believe that I actually sweat! and Marcus said he's just fine. But I quite like the hot flushes, makes me look like I have natural pink cheeks hehe but for a while only :(
5. Nowadays when I wakeup, we all would normally stretch right? I can't even stretch my legs or else sure kena cramps :( You know, the muscle pulling type which is soooo painful. Sigh... Everything also must do slowly.
6. Forever running to pee... well, this is normal but sometimes can be quite irritating having to to go the toilet so many times in a short span. Oh yeah, did I tell you my good friend CONSTIPATION is back from my first trimester? hahahahahah and now that my baby is growing bigger, and the bones are harden, sometimes I feel quite painful when he starts kicking or moving. Sometimes I can't sleep because of that.
7. Mood swings. I was calm in the first two trimester but I must say it's slowly getting worst now. I get angry, moody and annoyed easily but yet I recover very fast from that. Then I am calm again. I hope I will stay calm throughout delivery. If I scream also if just to scare Marcus during delivery hahaha... to make sure he knows that how painful it is giving birth hehe ( so jahat right ? )
So I think I better cage myself at home but at the same time, I always feel like going out on weekends, to buy baby stuff or home stuff or window shopping for a while. Sometimes I forgot that I AM HEAVILY PREGGERS now.... maybe cos I didn't really gained that much weight as I expected but now I do feel it... :) I still love dolling up and meeting friends but now I faced another issue. NOTHING TO WEAR! Or more like CANNOT WEAR most of my clothes... ( can cry wan you know... ) also, I now prefer to wear simple dresses but face and hair must look nice. This baby really like me to FA CHONG, CAT ICI! Hhahaha.
Oh! I also discover that H&M Avenue K has newborn section!!!!! I WAS BEYOND HAPPY!!!!! Because I remember that Jasikins told me she couldn't find it in H&M Lot 10 ( I was homebound due to morning sickness ) and so I had to order online from their UK website. While I was in Avenue K, I just went to the baby section to check it out and to my surprise, they have the newborn section :) I am happy as a clam and also to think I can shop there as I love H&M a lot! Their baby clothes are super cute and most importantly, super affordable :) Not only that, Plaza 1 Mont Kiara H&M outlet also has a wide range of kids's clothing! Good la, then I don't have to drive so far when there's an outlet which is just 5 minutes away :)
OK, enough of me ranting... I wanna take a short nap now. Chao!

I love taking pictures, it reminds us of fun times and also how time pass so quickly. How our dressing and makeup can transform ones look. I was looking back at some of the old pictures from 2007 and some of them really made me laughed! So I wanna share with you some old pictures of what I used to do and also how I look back then and now :) I did not do any plastic surgery or photoshop my face. I noticed that when I'm fatter, it will hit my face first, then my thighs ( same goes to pregnancy, my face and thighs so much fatter now, arms still ok ) Promise not to laugh ok? I also got a picture where I am super skinny, 40 kg. I also notice that my nose will enlarge when Im fatter LOL, and when Im thinner, it will slim down! LOL! Dunno la!
Quality of the pictures are quite bad back in 2007-2011 :/

This picture can be deceiving, it looked like I partied and passed out right?
It was New Years Eve and Marcus went to HK without me cos I wanted to spend some quality time with my sister who comes back once a year while she was studying in London. Took this in Jordan house, I was a bit emo cos Marcus wasn't there and I was waiting for his call at 12 sharp :) I actually went to sleep early and then you know la.... many strangers come kacau me, sum more dare to put mask to cover my eyes

The very first picture we took before we got together, I think Brie helped me to take this shot. It was already closing time at Laundry Bar.
Experimenting with colourful hairs back in 2012, from Turquoise, Pink to Purple. Then I regretted it cos my hair was so spoilt because of the bleaching, but it was nice to play around :)
Cut my hair short right away, bye bye bleach damaged hair! Now I can't wait for my hair to grow longer :) It's been two years!
