Splashes of Colours


Counting down… 4 more weeks


With less than 4 weeks to the D Day, you cannot imagine the excitement and restlessness around my family. Especially for first parents like my hubby and I, we simply can’t wait to have it happen.

Of course, we both know the baby can arrive anytime now. We have friends, who were also having their first baby, delivered on 37th week.

One thing which both of us are very curious is how does the baby look like. I hope he will be cute enough… haha. The scan image actually shows the features of the baby. Hmmm, doesn’t look too cute with the puffy eyes, but some said that’s the sign of a big-eyed baby.

At my last visit, the baby weighed 2.6 kg, which was “WOW”! 2 weeks ago, he was just 1.9kg. Looks like Taylor is not quite as small as we expected. Hubby keeps telling the baby (aka my tummy) to grow bigger, but what does he know? He’s not the one delivering a big baby. I have made my own deal with the baby, and I believe he will stop at 3kg (max 3.5 kg), and not make mummy so tired.

Rattana Thai Restaurant @ Tanjong Pagar Plaza


Hubby bought a Groupon voucher for this Rattana Thai Restaurant at $30 for 2 pax. It’s located at an interesting junction where one side is the one of the busiest business district, while on the other side is the old Tanjong Pagar Plaza. What totally surprised me is the fact that there are HDB flats around the area. I wonder how much these apartments cost. It’s no surprise that many are willing to pay the sky high price when your not-so-humble abode is a 5-minute stroll from your office.


The food was average. I don’t know why the meal was meant for 2 pax when there were only 3 prawns. And the staff came to inform us that there was durian ice cream and only returned again to disappoint us. When the ice cream was served, one third of it has melted, and the staff explained, although apologetic, that someone did not shut the fridge properly.

… …

As if I care about your fridge. If the food was not presentable, why did you still serve this food?

One can tell so much from these little incidents…


Am I missing something here? Look at the receipt above. There was $3 charged as the service charge $30 Groupon voucher (yeah, they do charge even if the service was not up to standard), and then there was another overall service charge. A service charge for a service charge?

Sounds like a scam?

If my hubby had not stopped me, I would have asked them explain this wonderfully uncomfortable logic to me.

Lastly, perhaps they did not thank us verbally when we left the place was because there was a “Thank You” on the receipt. Oh, it also asked us to return again. However, looking at how their jaw-dropping accounting skills has stunned me, I guess it’s hard to return for a second try.

Staycation at Wangz hotel



This was how our last Christmas looked like. Probably our last staycation as a couple (with no baby).

Wangz hotel was good… located in an interesting area. If I were not pregnant (and i.e. no energy), I would be spending a whole afternoon snapping photos around the neighborhood. I guess I can only wait till baby Taylor is old enough to accompany me on photo walk. 🙂

I hope my dearest hubby enjoyed the weekend as much as I did


And before we left the place, we spent some zone-out time at the Dispensary.
