Myday: Priority Seat and Pregnancy Badge

Yeah, like many other countries around the world, Singapore has introduced this priority seats on mrt/train. In some countries, most people will try to avoid and sit at the priority seats so it will be always available to those who need it ( elderly, injured, pregnant women, small children and families with small children)

So does it mean that you won't give up your seat to those who need it if you are sitting on general seat? And indirectly the people who sit in priority seats is the only person who suppose to give up their seats.

There's a lot of cases happened in Singapore just because of this priority seats. Some people die die also don't want to give up their seat because they think that they pay for the ticket so WHY SHOULD they give up their seat.

In my opinion I think everyone should give up their seats inregardless where you sit for those who need it the most.

Haha...I didn't say that just because now I'm one of those who need it. Sometimes, I'm the one who gave up my seat to those elderly because unfortunately the rest of seated passengers were either suddenly fainted, eye-blurry or sleeping. Haiz...well they paid for the train tickets so AGAIN WHY SHOULD they give up their seat lol.

Sometimes as one of those needy person, we need to know how to feel gratitude and say thanks to people who hv gave up their seat for us. I know some of those needy person are very rude, never say thank you and very Ya-Ya and acted like he/she MUST give up their seat for him/her.

How true is it??? I personal doubt it :P

Pregnancy/Maternity badge in Japan

pregnant pregnancy maternity badge Japanese train Japan

I think Singapore need this pregnancy/maternity badge, so all pregnant women can proudly hang their badge either in their handbag or wear it. (I WANT ITTTT hahahah)

Cause most of the time you can't tell especially in the first and second trimester (and rude to ask) IF she is pregnant or having a bloated belly or maybe ate too much :P hahaha

How to survive (protect your babybump) in a packed mrt/train or bus

Nowadays, many buses and Mrt tend to be packed anytime, anyday and anyhour. Some people will know how to queue and stand aside to let other people's out first but some people bo chap (don't care). They won't queue, they stand in the middle of the door.

Yesterday, I did experience for 3 things in 1 journey home from work (PISS OFF!!!!)

1. The guy who stand behind me on the queueing line keep pushing me with his bag while the Mrt door wasn't fully opened and even the passenger inside hadn't alight yet. I turned around and gave him WTF face but seems like he didn't care (he is an executive staff from his office attire)

2. When I went in, the mrt was in a very packed conditions ( I stand close to the door like that pink color shirt lady in the pic). Suddenly two students using her backpacked-bag try to squeeze in and swing her bag towards my babybump. Fortunately, I put my hands on my belly and I pushed her bag and said "excuse me" and again she only say sorry but still keep try to squeeze-in and feel bo chap (don't care). Along the journey, she keep swinging her hand up and down cause she was playing with her mobile. I was very afraid that her elbow will hit my bump so I kept my hands around my belly and kept watching her stupid swinging hand)

3. For the second time, I was being pushed again from behind by this rushing middle-age uncle inside the up-escalator. Again gave him WTF face...

These all are what I think of in order to protect my babybump hahah, hubby always ask me to buy the baby bath-tub and hang it over my neck to protect the lil one lol...
Any good idea to share???

In-room DIY breakfast

As this lazy hubby wanted to wake up late, so I went downstairs and bought some croissants and cakes and make our own coffee and tea for our DIY in-room breakfast

Hubby loves the coffee ├ęclair (SGD7) from SweetSpot Patisserie, and I love the chocolate cake (dunno what does it call).And the croissant tastes nice and crispy as well. I didn't try their macaroon cause I don't like macaroon (please excuse me hehehe...)

For sure I will going back there to try their signature cake Chocolate Paradigm

From Mrs to Mommy: Is it safe to eat durian and ice-cream during pregnancy?

At first, he never ever want to let me eat ice-cream, cold drinks during my pregnancy. Sometimes I really craving for them, cause during pregnancy, our body temperature is warmer and what I need it something COLDDD and REFRESHINGGGGG.... (oucchhh...it is sound like excuses lol)

We hardly find the correct answers from the internet. There's a pro and cons. And this rebel husband keep insist on his decision while me as a notty mom2be always love to eat n drink them (not soft drink) secretly hahahahaha....

So I decided to ask my gynaecology,on my last appointment with him (of course in front of him)...

Me: Doctor, Can I ask you something? Is it OK for pregnant woman eat ice-cream?

Doctor: OK...I know a lot of people ask you not to but just be logic and think about it by yourself. What is your body temperature? around 37C right?! so whenever you drink a cold or hot water, our body will automatically adjust that cold drinks or ice cream or hot drinks become our body temperature so not to worry about that.

Me: So how about durian?

Doctor: Durian? hm... as long as moderate like two seeds a day should be okay but not for pregnant mums with gestational diabetes. Durian is a high-calorie plus high sugar fruits so imagine if a pregnant woman eats a lot of durian (147 calories in 100 grams) which make her fat with high sugar body, indirectly the baby who live inside her tummy will live in a high sugar environment. And of course that's not good for the baby who use to be live in a high sugar environment from their early stage and do you aware that baby's blood indirectly also contain of high sugar blood. This can lead to high chance of obesity when he/she reach 30 in their ages. 

AHAHAHA... from there onwards, he never complain whenever I have a cold drinks :D
