I lost 1.5 hrs of my life and I did not feel refreshed doing so

I woke up at 6.45am and roll around until 7.00am.

The boys were rolling with me on the bed. Had breakfast and got changed and dressed. Have not made face. Bed looked so tempting. It was about 7.40am cos I heard Isaac left for school.

Told myself I'll just lay down to smell the pillow. And 😴 zzzzz

The next thing I know, I woke up at 9.15am.

Garhhhh. Late for work.

Didi is 14 months today!!!

Dancing here after closing the toilet door to his own rhythm.

Isaac took these photos cos didi so funny and acting cute.

Oh @calvinadawn ED is 1 yo today right??! Happy birthday πŸŽŠπŸŽπŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰

Urgh!!! This is the amount I get after 15 mins pumping at 4.30pm. Terrible la.

Power Pumping

Power pumping starts today.

My milk yield is abysmal at best.

In Japan, it was already terrible, but after coming back from my business trip in KL last week where I had time to pump only 4 times in 24 hours, my milk supply has suffered.

Poor didi, not enough milk ah!!!

Power Pumping

Going to do this at 8.45pm today.

It will take 1 hour. Might read a book whilst I'm doing this.

Let's hope milk increases after 3 days.

It's actually best to do it in the morning, but man, I've got no time for that!

Power pumping in session!

A bit late cos didi fell asleep only at 8.45pm. Did some #fermentationfun brewing and washed some pump parts before hand.

Darn it!

Power pumping got interrupted just 10 minutes into it cos didi woke up.

Back to nursing didi to sleep.

Sigh, after nursing didi, he fell asleep and I continued pumping. But he woke up again after 5 mins of me power pumping.

Batdude said the pump is too loud!

Dammit. Now plans abandoned. I've to go back to work tomorrow and get the freestyle home. Have to place this PISA back at work then.

Big sigh. Maybe I should just have bought another freestyle after all.

Wah super wet and heavy morning run to the school.

But he definitely enjoys this. 😍

Bringing Isaac to work today after his school.

Give helper a break. Haha

In the pumping room together.

So noisy la he!

Don't wanna bring him tomorrow already.

Pang kang loooo!!

Waiting for our bus home!

I went introducing myself to my global head during the meeting and ask for a job.

She ask me to drop her an email as there is a specific opportunity coming up.

Omg yeay! Looks like I may work in Basel sooner than my expected time frame.

Wohoooo.

There is nothing concrete yet but I am so grateful for this opportunity to introduce myself and let it be known of my interest.

She said, just knock on doors. Just ask.

And ask I did.

Every new head I met, I treated it as if it was an interview.

And I told them how inspiring it is to be in their role as they got to help us at the local offices in the day to day submissions.

Garhhhh I'm so excited!

Gasp!!!

#dayrebeauty

Got TC so whilst listening, I went and apply the 24K on my lids.

Awesome la. Can use for xmas make up. To match my gold glitter hand bag.

Husband is on a mission to bring self esteem up.

Not consciously la.

But does make me smile like a school girl again. Although I wasn't a school girl when I first met him.

And I did not look like your average high school sweetheart.

In fact, I look like a pretty "hard" looking Vietnamese mail order bride.

BEHOLD!

The ravishing beauty, her adorable mom and cute sister.

Seriously?

Hahahaha.

"Gip me maaaneyyyyy, I lurp you long timeeeee"

Yesterday, both the boys woke up in such a good mood!

Laugh until fall back onto the bed.

Quickly took my phone and snap pictures of them. Too precious.

I don't know what was so funny, but hearing their laughter was 🎢

My little ah bengs, schooooo cuteeeeee (bias)

Love their banters.
