Things that happen when you want to take a proper photo with baby. 

Looking everywhere but the camera lens 

and then got distracted by it 

21st July 2023 - Received this joyfully  enjoy-the-moment baby from daycare 💗💗💗

THe photos sent from daycare always looks extra cute. Not sure is it because I am on work, and this makes me miss her more. 

and her hand gesture got me into thinking the heart sign which is very commonly seen on Kpop idols.

Bitten by Yee Xuan  

Her bite is really full of strength one. Despite she is having only 4 teeth. but it is quite painful. and the pic above was taken 2 days after. Meaning she bit me on 16th July. 

It all started with , in the car...i was supporting her while she was mesmesrised by the car view outside, then she also casually turning here and there. She turned to my arms like she usually does, I thought she was just going to use her tongue to move...like sucking on pacifier thing. 

Then only I realised that she treated my arm as food the moment she bit me. It was painful though! 

The picture on the left was the 2nd time she bit me . on 17th July night time. WHile I was carrying her into the bathroom. And guess what...the biting is through my clothes. but the bite marks are so obvious! 

Okay...checking on the second day morning...it dissapeared already. 

17th July : I am down with cough and flu  

I am still sneezinga and coughing now, I rest at home. 

Sunday 16th July 2022 : Physical tuition with my students. 

asking my student to present about the disease to me. 

July baby's gathering! 

Nowadays, it is hard to gather everyone together but we made it!  Although JM still wasn't there la. Gathering with my husband's high schoolmate. Those who sat in front are the July Babies! 

Sat 15th July 2023  Curious baby likes to see the view outside 😃😃😃

4th July :Baba woke up early to..... 😭😭😭(touched)

\ 4th July 2023 :Baba woke up as early as 6am today to prepare my porridge (to steam chicken fillet and to cook hard boil egg.). and recently new addition to my daycare meal....bread and steamed carrot stick....because I can eat more now. 

Mummy was thinking of increase the portion of the porridge , but daddy said... let her to eat variety than eating the same food everyday. 

Mummy thought : I am actually quite touched, because he woke up early every day to prepare a healthy , nutritious , hearty breakfast made with 💗💗💗. 

and to make the comprehensive meal, means more time and effort is required.  

On Sun night, the dinner prepared by beloved WS baba八政汤

the baby food I cook for Yee Xuan 

I like the great lightning in a Malaya style cafe, called Uncle Lim in seapark , PJ

My family came over to KLduring the Haji holiday. So we got to spend time. All my family members are so excited to meet YX 

Me lightly dress up . 

but first, we go and have a good high tea first before picking up YX from daycare. 

Our high tea at Farmer's Bar. My father doesn't fancy the western Cuisine. He has just done Chemitherapy, and he jokingly said... This kind of food....makes him want to puke

Then we go and survey the Salmon price in village grocer. It was Rm 135/kg for Fresh Norwegian Salmon - air flown. 

I felt so guilty that day because my baby has been waiting for me for 2hours since 2pm. I am so sorry Tan Yee Xuan. I learnt that Ineed to communciate effectively next time. 

I'm not sure when did i take this, but YX is cute! and mummy was feeling pretty on the day. 

Things that I wish to tell my younger self

 The 3C : Consistent  | Commitment | Concious

Compare to my current state of mind, of course I have gained more maturity then me 10 years ago. 

I realised some of the mindset of young adults nowadays are quite mature, and long-sighted 

I wish I could have this long vision back then. 

Back then I was a happy go lucky person.  Whenever I have to make decision related to my future. I don't think about the long term outcome. I choose it purely based on my preference. 

If I dont like it, then I would switch. So there's never a long term commitment in there. 

So far...I think one thing that I have been doing it consistently ...up until now... is blogging. 

If you are into the social media...

BLogging is consider quite outdated. 

People would usually turn into motion picture = video like Youtube, Xiao Hong Shu to get information. but sometimes...some thought is best expressed perfectly in text form, which is why I still keep blogging. 

Anyway, now Isee that my younger self has lesser commitment and consistent, because I was not trained to have that long term commitment mind...and therefore..less responsible and less consistent. 

Back then...Iguess my parents just want me to live a happy, care-free life that it's okay if I just wanna stop dancing class or piano class.   

Now, I learn that being commited and consistent are keys to cuiltivate small yet significant healthy habit which will lead to a successful lifestyle . I could imagine that if I have been doing something consistently in the right direction, it would be a very great snowball effect, compounding to a bigger changes day by day.  

Be Consistent also means being discipline in a sense. 

I admit that my discline is inconsistent. It depends on my motivation and my mood of the day. 

But after journal this down, I wish that I would be stay consistent. 

What I mean is...

I wish that I would be able to do the same things repeated action ...which could be boring... 

That means, showing up on the day even when I dont feel like it. 

For example, 

If I have been doing dancing since secondary level until now. I could be a very  professional dancer. That's the way I see it. 

So from now onwards, whenever I pick up something new... for example... like aerial yoga, kpop dance...

or even in terms of my career, 

getting a new tuition job...I will do it for long term .... not rushing, but cultivate the small habit, and do it consistently with great commitment. 

Conciousness --- aka Be Mindful
