Featured in BabyTalk Malaysia Magazine's May 2014 Issue and My Mother's Day 2014 in Words

In light of the Mother's Day that took place a couple weeks ago, I am happy to see that a little bit of my thoughts on motherhood is featured in this month's BabyTalk Malaysia magazine under the "Lifestyle - Mother's Day Special" section, along with other three Moms.

What motherhood means to me.

Speaking of Mother's Day, I remember I was really sick on this year's Mother's Day so I spent most of my Sunday curling in my bed nurturing horrible flu and sore throat.

That day, my husband and I got up pretty early, which was rather unusual for our regular Sundays, so we went for a nice and quiet early breakfast (there were not many customers at the Kopitiam at 7am plus and Naomi was sleeping soundly next to us). After breakfast, my husband asked me if I wanted to go to the city park for a walk but I shrugged off at his idea because I was not feeling well. In the end, we took a quick stroll at our neighbourhood while Naomi slept in her baby stroller before we went home.

My husband helped me give Naomi her morning bath and before he did that, he bravely cut Naomi's fringe because it was too long. In the beginning, I protested his intention to fix his daughter's hair but he convinced me that he could do the hair cutting better than I did. I must say that my husband indeed cut Naomi's fringe better than I did. Less dramatic damage was made and nobody made blatant comments about Naomi's new fringe. So, I guess it was nicely done, albeit not exactly straight.

The panadol soluble that I took earlier that day took a toll and I was drowsy. I slept until about lunch time. My husband woke me up because we had appointment that afternoon.

In the afternoon, the three of us attended friend's baby's Full Moon luncheon then followed by a doctor visit for Naomi and me (both of us were down with flu!). Somehow, after the doctor's visit, I also managed to made myself run a quick shopping at a nearby supermarket to get some groceries despite my fever. When reached home, I took doctor's medicine and went to sleep.

Later that night, we had a Mother's Day dinner with my husband's family and that's pretty much the end of my Mother's Day in 2014.

Anyway, belated Happy Mother's Day to all mommies in the world!
