I've only felt the butterfly flutters a few times at about 14-16weeks then I didn't feel Baby move. I remember Kieran doing the flutters a lot. Maybe it's got to do with the time difference and all. Plus all the shopping, I may have been too tired to realise that he was hiccupping. However, the last 2 days, Baby seem to be really active and doing sommersaults! I can feel the hard pushes in my tummy, as though he totally flipped around!! They felt like those that Kieran gave when I was quite far along. Good job Baby!
Yup, the use of 'He' is correct! We are expecting a boy!! :)

We'll be going of to SFO and LA again in Dec. I think Kieran will enjoy this trip. However, with all his running around and all, I think it'll be a tiring trip for us. Ha. I was hoping to be able to know the gender of the baby before we go so as to be able to go shopping. But Dr said that unless we are having a "precocious boy" we won't be able to tell. Sigh.. there goes the shopping spree. It was like that with Kieran the last time too. We ended up buying reds, greens and yellows.
This holiday will speed by really quickly, with all the invigilation and the entire month out of the country. I'm looking forward to the out of the country part tho. ;>

Double Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and Double Chocolate Cake with Vanilla icing.
Made these on Saturday. Had some mangoes in the house, so decided to make something with them. Was deciding between cupcakes or muffins, and since I wanted to hone my frosting skills, it was cupcakes again. I thought they were starting to look quite good. Have to work a little on the taste though. Couldn't really taste the mangoes. So here it is, Mango Vanilla Cake with Mango Buttercream Frosting.

Another cake decorating attempt! This was made for MIL's birthday. Was a regular yellow cake layered with mango cream in the middle. My mum said that the cake was too heavy. Gotta try try again. But I was quite pleased with the frosting on top!

Our trip to Japan in June was a great getaway for the 3 of us. It was good because we were just by ourselves, out of the country, out of contact with everybody else! We could do anything and everything without anyone asking or saying anything. Also, the feeling of holiday is always the greatest. No deadlines, no chores, nothing. Just pure enjoyment. Ok, this time we had to wash milk bottles all the time. But hey, it was still great fun.
School's started already. The thing about being in a college is that the exams are always after the holidays (unlike in secondary schools, the exams are before the hols). That's means that we do not have to plunge crazily into teaching right after a long hiatus. With 1-2 weeks of exams, the gears start to go into motion. Need to get past the inertia. So this week, we are just marking and marking and marking. Still, the frightening thing is that, this term is going to fly faster than the last. Looking at our work plan, the term is already over!! Woah!! BUT, that would also mean that holidays are coming back again!! HAHAHAAHAH!!! Yes. My life revolves around the coming and going of the holidays!!
See all my travel pages
Hmm.. more places to come? :)

Went to Harajuku to look at all the so-called "funny" dressing. I am just amazed by the efforts that they put into dressing themselves up!!! The entire street was filled with teenagers. Anyway, the crepe tasted really quite good!! Quite an experience for us, to see the "in" fashion of the Japanese.

We landed on the tarmac again. It seems that we keep doing that on our past few trips into Narita airport. We always had to take the bus into the terminal itself. Even though we landed early, we reached the inside of the airport at about the expected time after waiting for the stroller and the bus. After so many trips into Narita Airport, we finally exit the airport to enter Japan itself. Haha.. the last few times to USA, we could only walk around the section of the airport where we waited for our transfer.
