Turned 35, the next box to check. Gosh!

As per our yearly tradition, it's time to summarise my life in a post! How has turning 35 changed for me?

Work: After a good 4 years at the advertising agency, I decided on tendering. Didn't really feel like that was my calling you know? The work just wasn't for me. Also feel that the kids are growing up way too fast and I just wanted some time off to spend time with them currently. This is a short term approach though as I would still want to return to the workforce sooner or later. And in the meantime, I'll be using this break to spend more time with the kids.

Family: Relationship with my parents has been good. Been catching up with my parents often. Even if we couldn't meet, we would spend time on the phone and send pictures of the kids.

Love: I have to be honest, having two kids isn't a walk in the park. It's tough parenting with two kiddos below 3 especially when I have to do most of the heavy lifting most of the time. This is also a reason why I decided to take a short term break as Skai has a new job and spends a lot of time out. Someone has to be the constant in the family.

Health: Breastfeeding has been easier the second time around. I guess cos I didn't officially stop. With the help of Aimin, I managed to lose the balance of my pregnancy weight! Phew. I only wished, I had more time to myself and be able to exercise haha.

Friends: No change here. Kept those who matter close and distanced myself from those who I felt were toxic.

Blogging: Spending more time on Instagram instead as I hardly have time on the computer. Still love doing what I do, just more regularly on a different platform. Holler if you have any opportunities!

Thanks to everyone and anyone who has wished me a very happy birthday. As mentioned every year: birthdays just symbolises another year closer to the grave (to me). So love like you have never loved before, eat like you have never eaten before, live life like every day is your last.

Hit 34 last week! As per my yearly tradition, it’s time to summarise my life into one post to see where I’ve failed and where I’ve succeeded.

How has turning 34 changed for me?

Work: Am in the same place as per last year. Have a good bunch of colleagues who I really enjoy working with! <3

Family: Same old, same old. A few scares and operations but all is good.

Love: We really enjoyed having a lil gremlin so much that we decided to upgrade our family! Am blessed with a lil girl, am baking her right now and she'll join our lil family soon! We planned for a second kiddo with a 2 years age gap between #2 and Aidan. I also didn't want to have #2 too late as I wanted to close shop by 35. heh.

Health: Pregnancy this time is tougher. Am feeling more aches and pains. Morning sickness was such a bitch! Didn't have it with Aidan but with Davina, it was SO BAD! Am glad to have continued breastfeeding, so gonna tandem latch once Davina is out!

Friends: No change here. Kept those who matter close and distanced myself from those who I felt were toxic. Nothing changed here. ?

Blogging: Hello! I've pretty much evolved into a parenting blog! Am open to more parenting topics, so do get in touch if you have any opportunities for me!

33! I feel so old now! As per my yearly tradition, it’s time to summarise my life into one post to see where I’ve failed and where I’ve succeeded.

Work: Been in the same place for a while now. It seems that things will change, with new job roles etc. Let's see how things go 🙂 Honestly, I wished I was a SAHM. So that I can spend more time with Aidan. But with current situation, new house and all, it's pretty tight. Good thing is, I get to go home on time and spend time with family.

Family: I miss my mum a lot! It feels so different after moving out. I talk to my mum everyday but it's just so different. Miss her cooking and Miu Miu a LOT! And as always, Family comes first. Always. 

Love: HAHAHA. Skai isn't the love of my life anymore. Aidan is. I never thought I'll be like this but  I guess it's all about making the best of the situation. I still find other kids irritating HAHAHAA. Honestly, dating and marriage was easy for us. But as parents, there were many times we disagreed on things. It's all about compromising and understanding, or well, trying to understand each other I guess? Aside from that, I have never thought I had so much love to give. I guess, we were lucky that Aidan is such a happy baby. He smiles at us all the time and while he has his moments, it's pretty much all good 🙂 Tiring, but good.

Health: Pregnancy was tough. Motherhood is a challenge. I'm so exhausted all the time. I'm surprised I have kept myself going with the breastfeeding and all but I'll try to continue till I dry up. Hope to hit my goal of 1 year at least. 🙂 I'm definitely healthier now after giving birth considering the lil hiccups during my pregnancy. But the sad thing is my weight gain! Can't seem to lose weight! Boo. Never mind, I'll go on my low-carb diet after I stop breastfeeding!

Friends: Kept those who matter close and distanced myself from those who I felt were toxic. Nothing changed here. 🙂

As mentioned in my previous post, Skai aka c(hubby) surprised me on my birthday. First with a sneaky lightbox sign.

After that with a rainbow cake during Chinese New Year (same day as my birthday). Honestly, I was surprised and almost close to tears when his relatives starting singing Happy Birthday and he brought the cake out.

It felt good to actually go out for a while! Really tired these days and have been resting as much as I can. The final month awaits. Maybe even shorter. o.O
