Happenings in my life

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, April 24, 2007 0 comments Links to this post
Well, nothing much has been really exciting in my life except more kicks from baby Caleb throughout the day as well as going to East Shore Hospital weekly on Saturdays to attend antenatal classes with CT.

I chose East Shore Hospital because it is reasonably priced as well as it is not so crowded. The other reason is that it is located in the East which makes travelling down easier to go for classes or doing visits.

I have really learnt a lot from the class about how and why the body is changing. The nurse will first talk about nutrition, then breastfeeding, signs of labour, bathing the baby etc. Next few weeks will be teaching me how to exercise and breathe properly to ease the delivery of baby. How interesting I must say.

Currently at the moment. CT and I have decided to employ a helper a month before I deliver the baby to take care of me. I have never wanted to relied on one but it seems I do not have much a choice since CT prefers to stay in our own house and both our mums are not free to take care of baby.

I do not wish to employ one because it seems inconvenient to have someone new coming into our family and stay with us. And also, I do hope that aside from all the maid stories that I have heard, I can still trust them.

I do pray I will get one who is honest, pleasant, takes initiative, hardworking and has the ability to take care of baby Caleb, cook and clean the house.

Cooking

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, April 17, 2007 0 comments Links to this post
Last Sunday, I felt like eating burgers. So, I decided to make my own mushroom swiss burger.

Bought ground beef and seasoned it with salt, black pepper, worcestershire sauce and tomato ketchup. Usually, I would add beer as it would taste nicer but I guess I didnt want it to be so fanciful. So, I kept my seasoning simple.

So I first sauteed the white button mushrooms with onions. Then I made my beef patties and grilled it. Then add the cooked mushrooms on top, and lastly, top it off with cheese on top before putting on my already grilled bread with melted butter.



It was delicious and filling as we both took 2 burgers each. Had baked beans, salad, and chicken vegetable soup for sides. Actually, I had mashed potatoes too but decided not to cook them after I saw that there was so much food.


It is really simple to make. If you do not eat beef, you can always replace it will grill chicken breast or grilled dory fish. It will also taste good.

Give it a try!

new additions to blog

Posted by Dawn at Sunday, April 15, 2007 0 comments Links to this post
Just to let y'all know that I have added on movie recommendations in my blog. The reason in doing so is because CT and I love watching movies and thus, I felt it might be useful for those who like to catch a movie but do not know what is good out there. Pre-warning: The movies that I recommend is purely my own personal recommendations and thoughts written about it.

The other thing I added is a website link(on the right side column) to the forum which I live in-The Punggol Forum. My neighbourhood has their own forum and lots of useful titles for you to read up if you like to-e.g for food lovers-gd places to eat or recipes, for pregnant mothers & mothers, lots more.... as well as a wide collection of photographs to Punggol.


Do check it out when you are free!

Good Friday

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, April 07, 2007 0 comments Links to this post
Today is Good Friday and my church has a service in Expo for all Presbyterians in Singapore- a combined service. CT and I gave it a miss because I didnt want to be in crowds. Instead, CT suggested bringing me to the Pasir Ris Park to catch the sunrise.

Truthfully, I would much rather catch up on my sleep as I have been lacking from the days of waking up early in the morning for work. But since CT initiated (which he seldom does), I wanted to support him by agreeing to it and wake up at the usual time during working days-which is 6am. CT suggested as he knew I would like watching, which I do..

So, today at 6am, woke up as usual and took the same usual route as I would have gone to school as my school is near the Pasir Ris Park. I really felt as if I was going to work. We managed to catch the sunrise though it was not very strong and contrasting in colour. It was still pleasant to catch the breeze and see the pastel colours in the sky.

There were an elderly couple there already doing their morning exercise.



At times, we could catch the commercial airlines flying in the sky as it is near the airport..

We also caught sight for an egret looking kind of bird along the shores..


After that refreshing time in the morning, we went for breakfast at Pasir Ris Market area.

Every time I catch the sunrise/sunset/beautiful flowers, I always thank God for his creation. Indeed there is a God who created all these and He is the same one who claims: "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

May this Good Friday weekend be a good time for you to reflect upon the meaning of Good Friday and Easter Sunday to think about His love, think about His goodness..

22 weeks old

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, April 05, 2007 0 comments Links to this post
Baby is now about 22 weeks in my womb and boy, it has been kicking. No complains as I love to feel it kicking. Its mostly awake at night after dinner time but recently, baby Caleb has been kicking in the day time when I am in school too. Hope he is learning Mathematics as I teach my students! hehe





Here is a picture of him. He is now too big to take a full picture of him.





When CT saw this, he said, "wha..caleb so handsome.."

Hmm..go figure..
