Besra, Daddy & Mommy just cruising along...

Oh Captain, My Captain Peter Robinson just got himself a new boat and so he took us for a spin around the islands... hehe.. what posh friends we have eh! baby enjoyed the ride.. it wasnt too bumpy plus she attached herself to her daddy like a leech so i was mostly left to my own devices... stopped at one of the resorts on an island but i didnt get to go see the hotel n floating rooms (built on the water) cos i was on baby watch (she slept very soundly!) so that was a bit of a drag.. anyway, the weather was perfect, the waves were kind and of course my hubby looked gorgeous as ever. was a purrrrrrfect day!

New Year's Eve Party at Melinsung..

This might be the last new year's eve party i have at Melinsung Apartments... been doing it for at least the last 4 years now.. and its tradition to give everyone a wine glass, carry bottles of bubbly and walk or drive down to our sandy beach to watch the fireworks. also a must is to dip my feet in the sea to wash away all bad luck.. as you can see from the pic.. we all had great fun that night, bbq-ing the night away... in the pic is future sis in law to be joeanne and big bro steeve, alex and jo, luvy and alan, aloysia (taking the pic) and of course me.. looking a bit stumpy compared to the rest.. ah well.. cant have it all right!? anyway, wonder where i'll be when midnight comes at the end of this year... hehe..

I knew it! He's a boy!!!

I'm extremely happy to announce that the wee lil thing that's growing in me is a healthy lil boy! I'm going to be real smug and say 'I told you so!' hehe.. cos even from the very begininning, my gut feeling was 'male'. plus 24 hr sickness started in the 6th week (1st pregnancy: 3rd month) and it hit me with a vengence as you all know (evil pukey monster!)! i was craving beef and a certain four legged animal's innards (gross eh!) most of the time and they say most boy babies makes you turn into a carnivore. i used to love vegetables but now i can't stand the sight or taste of it so i only cook meat for meals now.. hehe.. force myself to eat an apple a day to make sure i am not constipated and man, no wonder the humble apple is dubbed "nature's toothbrush". it really works!

martin is happy but not estatic.. for some strange reason he prefers girls... Besra is daddy's lil girl so i'm excited that i may have a mommy's lil boy soon.. hehe.. but maybe fate will play tricks on me and send them both his way... quite sickening really how i dont exist to Besra when her daddy is around.. at the same time, it's very endearing how much she loves n adores him.. ;-)

as for names, we have one picked out already. Besra is the name of a falcon and so is Lanner. so Lanner it is then. ;-) i'm sure people will confuse it with Leonard but they'll get it eventually. Both are beautiful falcons... in fact, i would encourage them to have a tattoo of the actual falcon when they are old enough so they can show ppl! hehe.. my chinese name is Sui Ean or pretty Swallow (the bird) and i got it tattooed on the right hand side of my back shoulder when i was 22. martin is a name of a bird called: martin. hehe so you can see where our eccentric child-naming skills come from, there's a method to our madness! hehe.

seems like everyone i know is having a boy baby.. alex and jo will have a boy in april, and so will tang and jason, also expecting a boy in april. Lanner is expected in May but i wonder how long this one will stay in.. hehe, hopefully not a premature baby like Besra because the govt hospital experience was akin to hell on earth! sighs... ;-)

anyway, doc couldnt download a nice pic this time, baby is about 10 inches but not very filled out yet.. so probably the next scan will be clearer. hugs to all out there n thanks for taking the time to catch up with us wiles. ;-)
