Pregnant with Baby Moon Cat

Dear Baby Moon,

Where shall I start? Haha...

MaMa found out that I was pregnant after a beautiful family holiday in Sydney as we were spending Christmas and New Years there. During the trip, MaMa made some goals that I wanna start in 2018.

First being healthy, to start my personal training with Uncle JinKhai
Secondly is to focus on my Moon & Wild swimwear business
Thirdly is to travel more, plan more camping trips by the beach, try skiing and go to music festivals
Fourthly is to do eye lasik and also maybe invisalign

Well, all of those MaMa had to put on hold when I found out that I've got you. You became MaMa's  number one  priority right away. Everything else can wait.

During the first trimester, MaMa suffered from morning sickness again. It was a painful 3 months but it's more bearable than Mika's. MaMa vomited less, but the nausea was always there. Not only that, MaMa always felt more lethargic. I just wanna lay in bed and sleep. MaMa slept a lot. Mood swing was not too bad, quite calm like Mika's. ( Second pregnancy mood swing was the worst )

Being pregnant with you was very different from Mika's. You like sour, salty and spicy food while Mika loves sweet stuff like ice cream, chocolate and laici. MaMa always loved chocolate but during the first three months, I stayed away from them which was unusual. Ask anyone, everyone knows that MaMa loves chocolate. With you, MaMa's belly is lower while Mika's was higher. We still haven't found out your gender yet as of today because you were so shy during the last scan. MaMa also felt like my backache was worst this time round, there's minor pain below the belly at times because you are growing bigger and bigger everyday! And if I ever sat on the floor, it will be very hard for MaMa to get up! Mika would always help me by trying to pull MaMa up. He is really excited to meet you! He kept on asking me when are you coming out and he will talk to you and blow raspberries kisses on my tummy just to see if you'd move. MaMa also felt like I am more easily tired this round, like for example when MaMa is cleaning the house ( only doing the light stuff like picking up Mika's toys, laundry, tidying up the place ) MaMa would have to rest for 20 mins, then later only continue doing it. But Mika has been helping around, so it's all good. He's really into doing the dishes nowadays.

As for PaPa, he's really excited too as he really wanted you! He's been busy with work and working real hard to provide us a better life. He also spends quality time with us and will take MaMa on dates if there's a sudden craving. Once, MaMa was really craving for potato chips and PaPa actually bought a really huge tin for MaMa! It tasted so good at 5 am and you and I were both enjoying it while everyone was asleep. Yeah, MaMa had insomnia and would wake up about 3-4 am or 5-7am but MaMa always managed to sleep back after turning on NETFLIX to rewatch F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

We can't wait to meet you and we wonder how'd you'll look like!

Meanwhile, you just chill in MaMa's belly yeah!

See you in September!

How I Met Your Father

  • This post is dedicated to Mika and Moon Cat

Your father and I met in 2007 at Laundry Bar, The Curve Damansara. It was the first time I laid my eyes on him as I sip my glass of white wine together with Aunty Su and Uncle Andrew.  From a far, he looks really cute with a charming smile. He was actually working there at that time and it happened to be the most happening place back then. It was always packed and getting a table is quite hard.

I was a little tipsy and I just told Aunty Su that, “ Hey, that guy over there is quite cute “ But I didn’t mean anything. I was just merely telling her my opinion. The next thing you know, she just raised and waived her hands to call him over. I don’t remember what she said, but all I remembered that I was blushing. Your father just stood there and welcomed us to Laundry Bar and told us his name. Marcus.

I was extremely shocked and feeling shy so we didn’t talk much after that. Just exchanging names and small talk.

Mommy was in Laundry Bar almost every weekend and your father was always busy working but he will come and talk to me every time I am there with my girlfriends. He even bought us some drinks and food too. I remembered my favourite dish was their seafood marinara paired with a glass of white wine.

Do you know that your father’s nick name was DJ Bak But Teh? He sometimes will spin the closing song which is always “ With Or Without You by U2 “ Once he even danced with mommy on the dance floor while playing this song. 

 Your father did asked me out once to Chinoz at KLCC but I was too lazy to drive from Sunway, so I kindly rejected him once. Little did I know, he would actually offered to drive me there. I knew this much later on. 

We only became closer once your father got promoted to open a new branch in Sunway Pyramid. Mommy was always there with my friends. Mostly Aunty Su and Aunty Brie. Sometimes mommy will also wait till 3am when your father finishes his work and we will have supper together in Asia cafe, SS15. Just getting to know each other better. 

So one fine night in Republic Bar, I challenged your father to down 3 oysters with lots of cut chillies and Tabasco sauce. I still remembered the look he gave me and he said he would gladly down it if I agree to go on a date with him. Obviously I said YES! Your father downed it like it was nothing! Because he actually love spicy food LOL, I felt like I got conned at that part. But it was all good. We then both set the date and went to this German restaurant in TTDI for dinner, followed by the arcade while waiting for our movie to start and I thought that was it! But NO, we actually continued by going for another makan session followed by a few rounds on foosball which I totally whopped his ass. It was such a fun night out but your father didn’t kiss me that night. I guess he was really shy! 

Then there was a music festival happening in Penang, if not mistaken it was the Rainforest Music Festival where musicians from all over the world came to showcase their country’s music instruments. Aunty Su was organising a trip and I asked your father if he wanted to go. He said sure and brought a friend a long which is Uncle Stanley. Your father almost didn’t make it there as Uncle Stanley didn’t answered his phone when they were supposed to leave from KL to Penang at night. Uncle Stanley finally answered the called after 26 missed calls. I kid you not. 

Penang was really fun as we met up with Aunty Sheena and Uncle David. We even went to the botanic gardens for a walk and stayed in Batu Ferringhi and one night your father and I had a nice walk by the beach till 6 am. It was the first time your father hold my hand. But still no kissing! I guess your father was just really really REALLY SHY!

The next day mommy had to go back to Taping while your father will be driving down to KL. We just talked on the phone for hours, at least 6 to 7 hours for a few days before mommy returns to the city. 

Once I got back, your father immediately asked me to be his girlfriend in Sunway Pyramid because he was working at that time. He took a 10 minute break and walked me away from the bar to asked mommy. There we shared our first kiss together as a couple. 

Three years later, he proposed.

Two years later, we had Mika 

Four years later, we have Moon Cat. Your brother kinda decided your nickname, not us.
