100 days to go

How time flies. 

I still remember vividly the day when I found out I was pregnant and also the starting of my morning sickness. Time does pass quickly. 

The next thing you know, we will be welcoming our baby.

100 days to go :) 

I am not gonna count, but rather just enjoy the moment. It's gonna be a busy 3 months plus for us to prep for the baby. Sometimes I feel do scared, but sometimes I feel confident that I can do it.
No mothers / parents are perfect. 

It's very expensive to have a baby now compared to my parents era. My checkups normally cost about 200-300 per visit, and also we did more scanning like detailed scan and down syndrome scan which are actually optional but parents nowadays do it as well and it cost about RM 400-500. Plus we even bought the baby insurance which is about RM 300. Milk bottles also cost about RM 200... not to mention my baby clothes, LOL which I spent more money on that and buying too much. I think my baby first month won't repeat his outfit hahaha joking!

Jasiminne bought more new clothes and so did I, all from London. 

This is what I told Jas to buy for me :) I went to and just click whatever I want to the shopping cart and Jas went to get it all for me. Some is from H&M :) I LOVE H&M UK! Here don't have any newborn clothes 

I even ask her to buy some stuff from Aden and Anais, can't wait for it to arrive!!!

Too cute, I cannot tahan :P

These are Jasiminne's gift to Baby M :) Thank you Jas! LOVE IT SO MUCH!
The shoes are just too adorable! I can't stop looking at them!

Almost cried when I read your lovely two page letter to babykins

My kind neighbour, Leonard also gave us Acca Kappa hair brush and soap! Baby is so lucky! Now our whole family uses Acca Kappa comb! :) 

One of my girlfriend, Rachel got us this cute instagram onesie from Baby Gap! I LOVE IT! I am an Instagram junkie, follow me at @michiekins

I am so into JellyCat toys now! We bought the Bunny and the Dog :) I chose the bunny while Marcus chose the dog :) Both so soft and is safe for newborns :) They've got so many nice designs, you can check out their hashtags #jellycat on insta.

My parents and MIL said that our babykins is so blessed to have many wonderful things already, last time they drink milk from glass bottle nie, like the kicap bottle wan.. ahahha, no such thing as 3D scan, and after all that, they are still fine. Don't even get me started about education. I don't want to think that far.

Babykins have been actively kicking me now, even the doctor said that my baby started kicking quite fast, perhaps because it's the world cup season? LOL! and those who follows me on FB sure saw my status before that I jokingly said that I will name my son after the footballer who scored during the finals? and coincidentally the guys name also started with M, Mario. Hhahaahah I was like woahhhhh so ngam? 

But no, we are not naming him Mario :) I surely want to name him starting from M, but we still haven't really made up our mind yet... any suggestions for Baby M? Trust me, it's one of the hardest thing to do. 

His dad also suddenly brought a football home the other day and started playing around and told me that next time our son is gonna be a footballer. I just smiled and said : 

( He likes to play around my handbags rack and makeup table  -__- )

Also, I notice that I've changed a lot. I become more motherly. I am addicted to house cleaning and decorating now. Things I thought I will never buy, all end up buying like nice household deco stuff. I guess when H&M Home opens in Avenue K, I will go crazy.... I already eye on some products hehe. I already planned my baby room long time ago, can't wait to actually do it and show you guys! 

Will keep you all updated! Till then, have a blessed week.

Hooiliday 2014

What is Hooiliday you might ask?

OOI liday :) 

OOI Family holiday :)

This year, I wanted to do something special for the family trip to Pulau Perhentian. We've been to Pulau Perhentian since we were toddlers, I was about 2-3 years old when my parents took us there and we would drive there with all my dad's fishing kaki friends. We used to go there quite often when we were younger. The journey normally take about 5 hours from Taiping. But from KL, it took us about 6-7 hours.

We left KL about 3 am and just in time for sunrise :)

I actually plan this family trip for my dad, for his birthday actually as he loves fishing and I proposed this idea last December, before I was pregnant but we kinda cancel it when I was battling with my morning sickness, but thank goodness I was feeling much better after my second trimester and told my dad to let's carry on with the plan :) He then called his friend who works there to arrange everything for us. They've been friends for more than 20 years and still keep in touch. 

What my parents didn't know was we were planning family games this time instead of just chilling. It is good for family bonding and I was very much inspired by one of the episodes from Modern Family.

So I separate the team into two colours, and even printed T shirts for them with their childhood nicknames with numbers.

 Red Team 

Mom - Tikus No. Sepuluh ( all of her siblings are called tikus according to numbers, my mom was the youngest amongst all, anak ke sepuluh )

Marcus - Cus Boy ( Marcus mom calls him Cus Cus since young )

Cavin - Chukibin ( This is his first nickname given by his friends since he was young ) 

David - Khoongfupanda  ( A lot of people say that he looks like kungfu panda )

Mich - Maggie Mee (My hair used to be super curly like maggie mee, I rebond my hair like a million times hahah )

Blue Team

Dad - Mick Jagger ( My dad's friends said he looks like Mick Jagger since young and my friends all calls him Uncle Jagger instead of Uncle Garry )

Lina - Tong Sampah ( Lina was the only child who had straight hair in the family and my parents used to teased her that they kutip her from the tong sampah )

Nixon - Momok Pau ( This was Nixon's earliest nickname given by our cousin Chin Hui, who we used to play together since young

Sheena - Miku ( Sheena loves to eat Miku a lot since young and they said her hands and feet apparently looks like Miku )

We only told them about the family teams/games and t shirt when we reached our destination. My parents were shocked, happy shock and little did we know that the most competitive ones were both of them. They were so cute! Always trying to tease one another :) 

I was the referee and also the game planner for this round as I was preggers. 

My baby will be number  # 010 :) Cant wait till our next family holiday! For this trip, the RED Team WON :) and the Blue Team have to pay for dinner. 

This is such a good idea for family bonding and I suggest you all to try also! 

We stayed at Bubu Long Beach, Perhentian Kecil for 3 nights 4 days only. To be honest, it's quite expensive and not worthied for the priced we paid. But it was the best hotel in Pulau Kecil. Ala Carte food was good but the breakfast was just so-so only.... and they gave 2 free cocktails everyday from 5 - 6 pm for each person with some finger food. 

The sea is so beautiful with blue hues and white sands. It's actually more beautiful than Perhentian Besar. But the only thing is Long Beach is famous for it's party scene. Lucky we stayed at the far end and it's more quiet. But at night, the siblings did went dancing and drinking at the bar which was fun! I even joined them for one night and yes I danced with my baby hehe. Later kena marah from Marcus cos I jumped a bit too much while dancing haha! :p Not to say I jump that high also -_- " 

The next following days we just relax and chill from morning till evening. We also did water yoga and my siblings did managed to do one morning dive. It was a relaxing trip :) 

Till next time, Perhentian Kecil :) We shall bring Baby M there!
