Today, a grand total of 4 kind souls offered their seats to me when I was taking the MRT. It was rush hour [after 6pm] when I took the train from Somerset to Dhoby Ghaut [I was meeting my mil at Plaza Singapura]..Aidan was strapped in the baby bjorn facing outwards. The moment I entered the cabin, a lady about 2 metres away looked at me, half stood up and waved me over..I smiled and mouthed 'no thank you' to her [coz I was alighting soon] and when I moved to the right, 2 young men both sitting opposite each other stood up and offered their seat which I politely declined and explained the reason why. After I'd met my mil at Plaza and finish our grocery shopping, we decided to take the NEL so that dad wouldn't need to drive all the way there just to pick us up..And again, I was offered a seat by these two ladies who were sitting right at the side of the door, the moment I entered the cabin.
When I was about @8 months pregnant with Aidan and taking the train about a year back, not a single soul offered their seat to me..No one offered their seat when I took the bus too. But with Aidan dangling infront of me, I guess it's kinda hard to ignore, especially when he was in such a good mood , waving at people around him and clapping his hands away :) Must bring Aidan for more rides on the trains then!
South Beach Diet - Day 2
2nd day of diet went by fine.. The egg omelete with diced tomatoes and mozarella cheese I whipped up for breakfast was quite filling so come lunch time, the sliced pomfret fish soup I had was enough to fill my stomach. But by about 4pm. I was really hungry and I think it was worse coz I was carrying Aidan using the baby bjorn and it was tiring me out too. Fortunately, the other moms had a stroller to spare [no, my combi stroller isn't stolen again..it was left in hubby's car boot]..So for tea, I had some green salad with chicken cubes at Delifrance. Dinner was a sirloin steak [rare]..yeah, sirloin is acceptable for the South Beach Diet..rib eye steak is a no-no!
I tell ya..when I was walking along the bakery/bread aisle at Carrefour, the smell of freshly baked dough almost killed me..I never knew bread could smell that good!! Quickly ran down the aisle in case I started hyperventilating!
And yesterday night, I actually had a nightmare that involved carbs..I dreamt that I was eating bowls and bowls of rice and porridge with chicken thighs and wings! Thankfully my pillow was still intact when I woke up!
Will be setting up a stall together with Jean alisonrae this Sunday,30th Nov at Clark Quay..Am intending to sell most of the XS size clothes and stuff I know I probably will never wear, even if I slim down :D~~ Probably will include some bags and shoes..Most of the stuff are in good condition so I think I should be able to sell most of them..
Must make some money so that I can pay for Aidan's birthday/x'mas bash hehe~~
