Suddenly have a need to stop whatever that I’m doing and re-organized my thoughts and TO-DOs. I’m distracted, by something, but I couldn’t figure out what it was. Starring at the excel and trying to generate a tracking report out of it doesn’t help at all.

With the MIL moving in next week, and the number of things I heard that she’s bringing over, I couldn’t help but fear that there’s a lot of things that I will need to cover my eyes. The house ain’t big… where is she going to store all those things?

IKEA will be sending over the bookshelves, table and chairs today. I hope that will help me to re-organize at least the study room before she moved in. And soon… my privacy will be gone. The luxury of walking around in minimal clothing and leaving all doors wide open will be gone as well. Alas…

The way some people talk can be real irritating. It’s as if they are the king and know-it-all, and that the company can’t survive without them.

Talk politely to your colleagues as much as possible. It will not only brighten up your day, but theirs too, making the whole working place a better place.

It’s so simple but yet people just don’t get it.

Monday Blues… but I’m not wearing any blue on me. I’m quite sure I woke up at the wrong note today. Hadn’t slept well last night, probably partly due to the comments made by the lil’ hub while we are chatting and lying on the bed.

It’s true that the house was in quite a mess. There were bags of things everywhere and none of us tidied it. I mean, put it this way, if I don’t keep, the lil’ hub will leave it as it is too, since I’m the one doing most of the whatever household chores that we are doing. But for the past few days, I’m really too tired and shagged by the time we reached home to do anything at all, not even mopping of the floors on alternate days. And the weekends were spent outside researching and getting some things for the house.

Food – Granny’s Secret @ OG Albert Complex

I just had my lunch actually. Ate Long John Silver, since they are having the 1-for-1 promotion that cost less than $11 for 2 sets.

And now, I’m having some snacks with my parents, godmum and sister at this restaurant called the “Granny’s Secret”, located at level 2 of the OG Albert Complex. It’s somewhere at the corner, near to where they sell all the auntie’s clothings, and to the toilet.

Well, the first impression wasn’t that good already. I sat down at the point where the waitress was pouring the tea into the cups. And as she poured, thanks to the design of the teapot, a lot of tea flowed out and onto the table instead, wetting one whole patch of tablecloth.

The lil’ hub is awake! But I’d already had my breakfast – a cup of milo with biscuits, and a piece of cheese, so that I can take my multivitamin for the day.

Went to the baby fair yesterday which was so packed. Only bought the stretch mark cream from Mustela which caused $75 for 2! I usually got it for at least $54 per tube and the cheapest I’d seen so far is like $48 per tube.

After having a few discussions with the various people that I chatted with yesterday, I’d decided to take a walk to the library while waiting yesterday at NEX, and borrowed some books on pregnancy and breastfeeding. Since the lil’ hub most probaby won’t be reading up on anything, I guess I’ll have to be the one. And after chatting with so many groups of people, you’ll realise that each has their own thinking and method.

Conclusion, it makes it (sometimes) even harder to make decisions.

And so, I’m going to take all those advices, plus whatever that I see, touch, feel and read, and decide on my own (with lil’ hub) regardless of what any other people said. After all, their babies like it, doesn’t mean our little milkie will like it too, right?

Shopping – Isetan @ NEX

WE GOT OUR FIRST THING FOR THE BABY! – A 3-in-1 milk bottle steriliser! Brand? Philips Avent. Cost? $99. ^^

One of my cousins passed us a steriliser that’s spoiled, and asked us to trade in at the promotion baby fair at Isetan. And so, that’s what we did. Since we have no idea what’s good, and what’s not, we just have to listen and follow all these hearsays.

But anyway, the usual price, after buying it and walking around to check out the price, yes, this brand – Philips Avent, seems to be not very cheap (though it’s not the most expensive range). And it seems rather popular among the parents.

Shopping – The Wallet Shop @ NEX

Today is a happy day because I FINALLY found a cardholder that can hold all my CARDS! Yes, I do have a lot of cards. No, not credit cards but membership cards, such as that of… Charles & Keith (shoes), Kiddy Palace (Kid’s wear etc.), IKEA (furniture), Watsons (supermarket), NTUC (supermarket), KBOX (Karaoke), Golden Village (Movie) and many many more…

Yes, it’s a wide range of cards but there’s no harm if it’s going to give me perks and discounts, right?

And yes, I’d been searching for it for a damn long time, and normally those that I saw, I can probably only put half of the cards that I have, and it will already look bulky. Anyway, was shopping around in NEX during my lunch break and saw The Wallet Shop at a corner, located at Level 2. The location isn’t really that good, not near to the entrance nor visible unless you walk to that section of the building. But at least, it’s located right on top of the Information Counter, in front of a escalator.

I’m back to work after a ONE WEEK REST! Back with a vengence! *LOL* But that’s about my rest all the way till June/July this year already.

Nevertheless, definitely felt fresh and light, with the short hair but the back is starting to ache after working for only 3 hours. Never mind, it’s going to be lunch time soon. I cleared my emails and handled some of my financial related matters too. SO… now it’s time to re-list my TO-DOs! Been a while since I last did it.

Food – Cafe Beviamo @ Paragon

Met up with my girlfriend today to settle the insurance for the baby. Oh yes, the insurance companies really know how to earn money isn’t it? And then of course, there’s those “kiasu” parents-to-be who eagerly start to buy all these insurance even before the baby is born. So… HOW CAN I LOSE OUT?!! *LOL*

Alright, I’m not going to sell insurance here though I would say, it’s quite a good “investment” and “protection” at certain times. And if you have some little spare cash, it’s always good to cast part of the money that you have, and get insurance. Remember, insurance is not for you, it’s mainly for the people around you. But of course, it depends mainly on the budget that you have. If your money is “tight” every month, then I don’t see why you want to buy insurance.

It felt like as if I slept for only 15 minutes but then, it’s already 7.05am, the start of a new day, and my last day of rest. How time flies…

Time really doesn’t seem enough, isn’t it? How I wished there’s 48 hours a day, and the number of hours of working and sleeping still remains the same, so that there’s a lot more time to do other things.

For the whole of yesterday, I only managed to complete one thing. Damn. Today, it will be another busy day…

But thankfully, at the very least, my arms are no more in numbness and pain.
