Little one on the way

For the past few weeks, my tummy has been giving me some problem. I felt it was very sensitive and I just did not feel too good for the past few weeks. I had shortness of breath and I thought I was down with some illness. So went to doctor 2 weeks ago but did not find anything. Doctor just concluded it might be some muscle contraction that I was feeling in my ribs that caused me to be breathless.

I thought it was my lack or no exercise that caused it.

Anyway, after that, I started feeling slightly nauseous..very slight. I told myself that I think it is just psychological and that it is not true. I didnt want to raise my hopes too high as every month, I always feel disappointed when my menstration came. So, this time round, I told myself that I should not expect anything.

After missing my menstration for a few days already, I told myself that it might be due to stress cos I have been given a lot more responsibilities by my new principal and so, I told myself, I cant be pregnant.

Who knows today when I finally plucked out courage to take out my pregnancy kit (the cheapest one I could find from the store yesterday) and test, it came out positive! I was shock as I have tried 2 pregnancy kits before many many months back or a year back, it has always been negative. So, it was strange to see 2 lines there this morning.

Being skeptical, CT asked me to go to the doctor to confirm. I agreed as I felt preg kits can be wrong, especially when I got the cheapest one from the shelf. Haha..

Yep, the doctor confirmed it after waiting for an hour place to see the doctor and doing the urine test. He said I was 6 weeks pregnant already and will roughly give birth around 27 Jul 2007. Hmm....I just hope the baby will be due on a date CT and I can remember easily. Hehe..

Who knows it might be due on our wedding anniversary-8 Aug? :p

CT and I have been to Vivocity twice so far. Our first time was probably in October when we went for a Charity Movie Premiere there, and watched "An Inconvenient Truth". It is a show starring Al Gore-the ex-vice president of USA.

Basically throughout the whole show, you just feel as if you are sitting in a lecture hall listening to Al Gore give his wonderful speech about global warming. I must say I did not expect the movie to turn out like this, but it does create an awareness in me about how the world is dying with all his statistical findings and evidences. I would recommend this movie to everyone if you do not mind sitting in a lecture hall, where Al Gore is the speaker. I did enjoy it very much.

Before the charity movie, we had free dinner buffet in the cinema as well as free flow of champagne, red, white wine. Minister of Environment was also there..There was lots of leg room space and the screen was much wider.

This is how Vivocity looks like for those who have yet to go there..

This is the entrance of Vivocity

I love the architecture..

On the other side of the building, you can actually see Sentosa and you can go out of the building on the 2nd/3rd floor to view a small pool there as well as enjoy the view and breeze

Our second trip to Vivocity was recently this month where we went to catch the Doulos ship where I used to volunteer in. I worked in the ship for about 3 weeks and I must say it was the longest and toughest 3 weeks, but yet the most enjoyable. I got to know so many friends from all over the world in this Guiness World Record ship. It is only 2 years younger than the Titanic as well as the largest floating book fair held in it. Loads of fun working there, but it wasnt all pure fun, it was hardwork.

We had to reach 7am at the ship every morning to spend time doing our devotionals together as a team and sometimes, we stay back as late as 9pm or 10pm to have prayer meetings. I was exhausted after working whole day in the ship but as I said, it was all worth it because of the fun we had at the same time.

I remember it was also during Christmas time when the ship came and I took a group of my Nigerian friends from the ship to Takashimaya and see the Christmas decorations and to the East for supper. They had curfew which was 11pm to go back to the ship and my local friends all sped back in our cars to send them back along ECP. So fun..Anyway, this is the picture of the ship..

Food glorious food

Most people would know that I love to cook. I always tell myself when I cook is that as long as it is edible, it is good. So, I do not really put too much pressure on myself. I believe that the food has its own taste, especially when the ingredients are fresh. So, you do not really need to put much seasoning into it. So, as long as I make sure it is edible and that people do not get a stomachache after eating, I have succeeded.

A couple of weeks back, I cooked nasi lemak and it is my first time cooking it. I have time now to cook since I do not spend whole day in school.

Here is how it turned out...

My very own nasi lemak with egg, cucumber, ikan bilis, ngor hiang and prawn paste fried chicken. Not forgetting sambal balachan. Nasi Lemak without sambal balachan is not nasi lemak.

There are times when I like my cooking to be elaborate and go through a lot of time to cook a meal. But there are also times when I enjoy just eating rice with soup or sometimes just rice and a beef/chicken stew.

My dad, right from day one since the accident, has been focused on giving his testimony about how God has been good in his life despite what he went through-the peace and joy he receives.

So it is not surprising to learn that he has been invited to speak in churches to give his testimony.

A couple of months back, the family went to support him at Frankel Bethesda and the church actually did a video presentation and showed it before my dad went up to speak. So, I would love to share this with you.

Note: Pls turn on your speakers! Enjoy...
