Haven't updated for a while.. My cardreader went bonkers [note : this is my 2nd cardreader which is only abt 5 mths old at most. My previous cardreader died after 3 mths of usage] so I couldn't download my photos and w/out pictures, I became so uninspired to blog. To make it worse, I somehow managed to burn the cordwire of my camera's battery charger yesterday. It actually caught fire!!! Don't ask how it happened. I'm too embarrassed to write about it.

Woke up this morning totally set on getting a new digital camera [& cardreader]. I've been procrastinating for a while. Thought I could find some good deals at the PC Show last week but nah..pian nang one!! The cameras sold there were even more expensive than those listed in this online shop. I was eyeing the Canon Ixus 500 and Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T1 initially but hubby said that the reviews for the former wasn't that great and I'm kinda reluctant to start using a memory stick especially since I have tons of CF cards around. So finally bought my original choice - a Canon Powershot A80. What deterred me initially was it's bulkiness. It's about the same size and heavier than my Nikon. But hubby was totally sold on it coz of all the positive reviews he read on the net and it was much cheaper than my previous 2 choices so what the heck :P..I got it for slightly less than $600 (including GST) at Alan Photoshop with some freebies thrown in. Thought it was quite a good price since it was $699 (w/out GST) at the PC show and $670 (w/out GST) at the online shop. Okay, now I gotta start reading the manual and learn how to use my new camera :)
=====================

pics taken with my old cam of coz..

Loads of activities last week. We spent Vesak Day at the zoo. Not very bright of us since almost half of Singapore (esp families) was there too. Well, at least Aidan had fun..especially at the wet playground. Next time, we'll just bring him straight there and let him play to his heart's content and head home. We'll just forego the animals because he always ended up falling asleep when it's time to view them.

What you'll see at the zoo that day..


a gnu, a lion, a zebra and my li' sleeping piggy :P..

Here's a video of the li' bugger at the wet playground
He was the smallest one at the playground when we were there and that active li' bugger
was moving about like he owned the place. He ended up sitting and playing with 3 li' girls..
Hmmm...he definitely takes after his daddy :P


Then during the weekend, it was stephiechai's gal Hillary's birthday at Pasir Ris Park and our good pals' daughter, Chloe's 2 year old bday party cum bbq at Pasir Ris Downtown East. We somehow managed to make it to both celebrations although all 3 of us was so tired that we ended up napping at the chalet the moment we reached there (photos for Hillary's bday party will be in a later locked entry). Tiring man!


Usual Family pic :)
=====================

Oh..and I seem to have lost a li' weight :)

Actually, compared to a month ago, my weighing scale told me that I've lost close to abt 3+kg. I was about 57+/58 kg (depending which part of the day I'm weigh myself) in early May and now, I'm about 53-54kg. The weight loss isn't that apparent 'visually' but I can feel that my clothes are getting looser and my waist and tummy seems to be a tad smaller too.

So, I'm determined to try to reach my target of 50kg hopefully in about 2 month's time. And if I'm disciplined enough, to get back to my pre-preggy weight of 47/48kg :P..I want to be SLIM!

The only problem then would be..what do I do with all those nice XL/L size clothes I bought from Hong Kong?!!! (better not think too far ahead hehe)

i'm doing it the unhealthy way..taking appetite suppressant. I took it before i went HK and I lost abt 2kg then..and I stopped and started taking last week. I do eat lesser now I guess..although it's not like just a few mouthfuls only (like what my frens say). What I do is eat less carbo (rice n noodles)and drink loads of water coz my mouth gets very dry due to the pills i guess.

Trying to exercise more too.

Hey..u exercise alot leh. So yours probably are more muscles than flab right?

You look very healthy now.

Actually, still a li' flabby esp on my thighs n tummy area :P..

I was 48kg before my pregnancy> I don't think I was that skinny then actually..Actually, I thought I looked healthier and my tummy was really taut. So easy to wear clothes. In my mid 20s, I was abt 45kg so I was probably on the skinny side.

Heh..I don't mind having a waist like yours man.

But I spent so much on clothes in HK *sobsob*..

Hmm...the weight loss isn't really that visible I think. My mil and moxielass both say that my waist look smaller..hubby said no difference *bah!*..

Yeah, the IXUS 500 reviews aren't that great. That's why I'm not going for that one -- more ex, not as good! Oi, you need to share your HKG shopping haunts man.... catch you on MSN one of these days before I leave :D

ps: congrats on the weight loss! Woo!

someone looks like he is having fun :) though the way he ended up with the three girls in the end is quite priceless. I think he'll be quite the natural playboy :)

Aidan's really good. He can play on his own with you and daddy some distance away. C will kpkb if I take one step away from her.

Jia you on losing weight. Just to spur you on, I was 49kg last Friday. You can do it too!
angeliatay
Jun. 7th, 2004 08:40 am (UTC)
I was with him initially (if u see the earlier parts of the video) but some boys kept on spraying water using water pistols and I didn't wanna get soaked! I tried to bring Aidan out initially but he howled in protest so bopienz, we let him run about on his own. Hubby stayed closer to him while I walked to the other end to film him in action :) And yeah..he's really an independent li' bugger especially during playtime.

Fwah 49kg now! Okay..now got u and Sandra as inspiration!

Great pics!! It makes me want to go to the zoo..I haven't been in ages :P I like the lion's mohawk look :) and the zebra kinda reminds me of Eeyore, lookin away from the cam kinda sad hehe. And of course all babies look so cute and peaceful when they're sleeping.

Ha! that's hilarious how Aidan just went ahead and scooted himself with the 3 girls and started playing with them! he was the smallest but definitely covered the most space in the fastest time.

Yes you do seem to have lost weight. You look fabulous!! and I know you will achieve your goal!!
angeliatay
Jun. 7th, 2004 08:42 am (UTC)
yeah..have to see him in person. He was this small li runt walking around ..he even pushed some of the bigger kids aside so that he could walk pass them.

Thanks..i really hope i do manage to achieve it (and not gain it back!)

wah...i also want to lose all those weight...how do you do it??? so envious!! you look really good!!
angeliatay
Jun. 7th, 2004 08:47 am (UTC)
heh..cant judge by the photos lah. As what i've said, I think the weight loss isnt that obvious in person..just slightly only..I still wanna lose more.

Hmm..i dun wanna 'recommend' my method. Im taking appetite suppressant (i restarted last Wed) altho my appetite doesnt seem to be that small. I have to force myself to not eat as much as what i usually do but at least i dont feel myself feeling that hungry. I don't take the pills on weekends so that i can indulge a little. Am tryin to do more exercise too.
