Post Wedding Update

The wedding is finally over. A huge load off our shoulders. Honestly never knew planning for a wedding was that stressful, especially when you've got less than a month to plan the entire event. Super proud of the husband that he managed to get almost everything done himself -- we didn't even have a wedding planner. Definitely wasn't an easy task and further affirms my decision that I've chosen the right man to marry.

Post wedding, we've been slightly busier with baby matters. Went for our scan last week and it was such a heart warming moment to see baby dino wriggling inside. Sonographer commented on how active the baby was, which just reminds me that everything I've gone through so far was absolutely worth it. The morning sickness is getting better these days. I'm still extremely sensitive to smell, and it doesn't help that there's this smell in my office which I cannot take at all. I still feel nauseous every morning because of this stupid smell, but thankfully the puking has stopped, hopefully for good. My digestion has not improved that much though, my food still remains undigested for a long time, making it really tough for me to eat to my heart's content because feeling full = feeling uneasy and it's a horrible feeling when that causes the wave of nausea to come back again. Regardless, I'm just glad the morning sickness is easing because that was hands down the worst part of the pregnancy.

Now that I'm heading into my second trimester, I can no longer fit into my old clothes. And so, needless to say, I had to let the colleagues know about the pregnancy. Within the first day the news probably spread like wildfire and everyone's more or less aware of it now. To be frank, everyone's been pretty nice about it which is good. I kinda expected a lot more shocked expressions, but I guess everyone might have been able to tell already. Not complaining, because I'd hate to have to go through all those judgemental looks and whatnot. Not like I really cared that much anyway.

So a lot has happened in just the first 2 (coming 3) months of 2018. The husband's birthday is coming up in March and I've been busy planning a celebration for him -- he's had a tough start to the year and he definitely deserves an awesome celebration. I've also been wanting to post some feedback/ complaints regarding one particular restaurant (which we were considering to go to for our wedding but thankfully decided against), plus some other miscellaneous rants. Will come to that in a bit. Meanwhile, time to get some work done before lunch!

Review on Shopee & Its Unethical Sellers

I am fuming mad right now. I've shopped online since I was 15 and have always loved the convenience of having things delivered to you, right at your doorstep. It was a great alternative to having to visit retail shops personally, squeezing with the crowd and all. But not once have I had such a terrible experience.

So I was introduced to Shopee sometime last year. I'd heard raving reviews about it, like how the things there were super cheap and whatnot. Everything was good initially, lots of promo codes, vouchers to use, etc. But this platform has grown and expanded so much that I think they're starting to get cocky. They don't even care about the interests of their buyers anymore. I have submitted countless feedbacks, genuinely trusting that sth would be done but nope. They probably think it's enough implementing penalty/demerit points on irresponsible sellers, but c'mon. The bulk of these sellers don't fucking care. A few negative reviews or a few screwed …

16+4 Weeks Pregnant; Experience at NUH O&G

Today I am 16+4 weeks pregnant with baby Dino. What an experience it's been thus far. It still feels very surreal that I am married and pregnant, and there are just so many new things I'm learning about pregnancy everyday that sometimes I wonder if I'll be able to cope. I don't think I have coped well so far, what with the awful first trimester and the gaining of weight (I've put on nearly 8 kgs). But at the end of the day I am still super psyched to welcome the arrival of my firstborn, and I am already looking forward to Sept :)

Just thought I'd share my experience at NUH O&G so far. Overall it hasn't been that much of a pleasant experience for the husband and I. First of all the waiting times are crazy, and it doesn't even matter if you're scheduled for an appointment at 9.30 am because you'll have to wait at least two hours to see the doc anyway. Not sure if it's because of our gynae (we were assigned Dr Vanaja, a senior consultant, a…

Pregnancy & In-Laws

So we're at week 15 now, and in a few more days' time we'll be seeing our little Dino on the u/s screen again :) one month crawls by so slowly and everytime we visit the gynae I just hope for a little more time to see our little one, because that beautiful image is what keeps me going whenever I feel down about the pregnancy.

Honestly, there's nothing exceptionally bad about being pregnant. I mean, I cannot stand the gassy tummy and bloatedness, but I can still cope with it, albeit barely. What I absolutely cannot cope with is having to live with others. I am thankful that I get to stay home (my parents' place) during the weekdays because I get to enjoy so much freedom and privacy which I otherwise don't get. But these days I've come to dread weekends, where it's time to return to the husband's place.

It is not that I particularly hate living with his family that much. In fact, we used to go back every weekend before we got married and I got pregnan…
