Finding Time to Watch Japanese Drama

I haven’t watch Japanese dorama for ages.

It’s not that I haven’t have any chance to sit in solitude in front of my laptop watching streaming episodes, nor the tv to watch bootleg Japanese drama DVDs. I rarely watch TV or anything. I don’t think it’s a good idea to watch while spending time with Chloe. I feel like I would be neglectful. I would be concentrating on the screen and not paying much attention to her. Naturally, she will also be fixated to the screen. The thoughts of Chloe being overly stimulated, being more and more addicted to TV as she grows older and exposing her to inappropriate content are enough deterrent. So no TV other than Baby Einsten for half an hour every day.

Year End Trip – To Japan?

Two weekends ago, my Dad imposed that we should take a year end family trip. My Dad never invites, he always imposed. He employs many techniques, such as guilt tripping, pressuring, etc. I freaked out for a second. A flash forward of juggling crabby baby, nursing sore heels, blocking out negative vibe from conflict between my parents (bet my bottom dollar that it ALWAYS happens), and other nightmares surged through my brain. I can almost feel the end of the day sheer exhaustion. Only for a second! Yeah. My dad employed another strategy to make sure that I would say yes by giving me three choices: Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.

What? What? What? You mean my dad wants to take me to Japan?

Let’s go!

Oh wait! Damn! Logic kicked in.

Ghost Hunt Scare

This week, I have been reading manga with supernatural theme, be it youkai, folklore or ghost story. I am a scaredy cat when it comes to ghost stories, so I make sure when it comes to that type of manga it would be during the day or if it’s at night my husband would be around.

My husband had a bi-weekly church gathering tonight and it was just me and Chloe until around 10PM. After I put Chloe to sleep around 7PM, I had a lonely dinner with only my iPad to accompany me. Somehow, I started reading Ghost Hunt.

Alone. Only the hallway and kitchen light were on. Just in case Chloe wakes up and I need to carry her around the condo to put her back to sleep. Quiet. Only the sound of the clock in the living room.

Hello, I’m Back… and Now With Child

It has been a year since I peeked into my blog. I was pregnant and the lazy bugs attacked. A short time later I have a baby that wants to be stuck on me :) Time passed by so quick, and now she is 6 months old. Now it’s time to introduce her to you :) .

Her name is Chloe Misaki Wisan. Born 8th of September 2011. 2.4kg 44 cm. She was such a tiny baby. Nevertheless, she was healthy.

The morning after birth :)

James holding Chloe for the first time

She was an angel baby. Sleeps very well and not fussy. But she likes to be cuddled when she’s napping during the day. Otherwise she would sleep nicely in her crib at night, until she started learning how to flip over, that is. She kept on banging her leg on the crib gate, or getting her leg stuck while she was sleeping. So we decided to bed share, and it has been beautiful for me :) .

    • A ball hurled toward us today. Instead of crouching to protect Chloe, I bended & smacked it. Dunno if good reflex or bad maternal instinct. 2012-10-07
