I didnt book thru any agency. I used about 9months to do research, search forums and all. Then I book rooms directly with hotel and air tickets with airline directly. I find it cheaper though. Initially I had planned a very adventurous itinerary. But cos of this pregnancy, there's limitations, so I changed the whole itinerary to more R & R style, so took out quite a number of "excursions". I intend to split into 2 trips loh. This 1st trip, take it as familiarisation trip. 2nd trip, will cover those areas which I did not cover due to "bu-fang-bian" to walk too much during 1st trip.



My 2-cents advice, since u intend to travel early next year, which will be rather cold, maybe u cover the basic areas like me. By then, yr tum will be get bigger liao. Then come next trip, maybe bb older or 1 or 2 years later, cover the remaining more challenging areas.



Mudpie

Yah loh. 1 week nia!! So happy

Today very disappointed with my lunch, was planning to take laksa, so I went to take internal shuttle and went to the other canteen happily, and the auntie told me she din cook today cause students not having classes. End up eat economic rice again..sob..sob..



vv, you are welcome!! Yes, the food is nice, even though i vegetarian, but i see the food they sell, is nice. Even their vegetarian food there is yummy and more variety.



starfruit, I also plan to go Japan again... just went in April and I miss it a lot..hopefully i can bring my boy there in 2012..the baby will have to be at home with my parents, too challenging to bring 2.

Still nice. Myanmar lunch, uhm sounds delicious. I have Myanmar colleagues here and they always bring their own lunch. Their food today smells nice when I went to warm my lunch.



Hannah

Its like that de lah. I realised all gynae apppointments take very long de. Mine also average waiting time about an hour even though appt made a month ago.



Luan

Zhu Za Tang nice leh! I love with lotsa pepper. But how many diapers did u bring? How many on average per day does she change?



Maybe go HK during Xmas? Other places would be rather cold for young kids in Dec le...



Jerejoy

Wow, so nice. How come u stay in Australia so many months? Cos of work?



Auroa

Agree. How are you feeling today?



Dolly

Yeah loh. At 1st I was puzzled. But I realised its becos sometimes got last min patients need to come in, remove stitches, reviews, blah blah. Sometimes I heard the nurses outside complaining also... that doc not sure of the timing de, the nurses have to pre-plan for them until so tight cos doc requested the patient to come in during certain times when its alrdy so full.. sometimes emergency C-Sect, or Natural Birth, doc gotta leave and come back later.. Haz.



Jerejoy

Wow!!!! Envy you so much! So now u are back in SG? But u can work as partime there right if hubby working in the foreign country too? Must be quite fun & challenging, exposure must be very good.



Wayne

Really arh.. I dun wan take the risk also la.. scar-li dun have liao, then hubby sure scold me de.

Dun worry, will be yr turn too. Time will pass very fast. So now, must yang-tai @ home. Am sure yr hubby will "reward" thereafter.. Heeheee.



Skye

Which part of Australia u be going? So u will be SAHM over there? This bb is your #1 or #2?

joycep, dun be sad... most hubbies dun want to travel esp when wife is preg.... too big responsibility for them to bear...only when wife insisted (show black black face) then hubby will go... at first my hubby dun want to go holiday, then i sms him the next day that he doesn't want to go, i will jo jo my sisters to go with me... immediately he called home and asked me which trip/countries that i want to go...

Wayne: hehe, maybe we can plan atrip together in 2012. but i think i will lug both children with me on the trip. i cant bear to be apart from my kids.. hehehe sticky mummy.



Ling: this is your own trip? wha sounds adventurous.. heheh i have never been to vietnam or cambodia.



my lunch is boring too.. teochew porridge with 2 veggie and luncheon meat. didn;t finish the portion. Went to the bakery to buy a mini chocolate crossaint, planning to eat for tea later. Bought fox candy and chocolates as well.. i am such a glutton!.



Hannah: so u take leave to go for the appts? or she give as MC?

my appt is this sat, cant wait, hope all is ok. had a scare when i read about Miko's case, so now hope the session can assure me lah.

Hahaaa, when comes to shopping only, we women all forgot about time. My hubby always nag at me on this. Haa, u better rest well at home for now since now floating. Can imagine how u feel.



Yah, now young must teach them liao. My boy also sometimes use very rude words. I will give him a piece of my mind but hor, he like cannot pay attention when I talk to him at times. So gotta show him the black black face, then he scared.



I heard from teacher yesterday, he refused to drink milk in childcare. Teacher gotta coax him with something so that he will drink. Even at home, he dun drink. I suspect its becos I changed from Step 3 to Step 4. Step 4 probably not as sweet as Step 3 anymore.



Any Mummies facing such difficulty with #1 refusal to milk?





Joycep

Hey, dun worry. U will surely have a chance to go. Maybe go for a short getaway also can like to Bintan or Phuket.



I remembered the last trip I went was during honeymoon only. And thereafter no holiday trips at all until our #1 turns 3 years old now, hubby then finally "agree" that we can have a holiday trip since #1 is older. That was almost 8mths ago when we decide to go. And didnt expect to have #2 so soon...

mummies : i didn't go home after lunch... taken a super long nap just now... so feeling better after a nap... Thinking of going home, will be worst coz my girl will keep disturbing me if i'm home.. think what trigger the migraine is, looking too much @ the laptop screen... If tomorrow morning still the same, then will take urgent leave...

skpe, bet u will fall in love with Aust. Maybe can't adjust initially cos of the culture. Which part of aust will u be staying?



vv, nt allowed to work as part time cos my hubby is in the govt sector. It's under the accompanied term.



starfruit, no intention to go back to workforce. My hubby prefers me to stay at home to look after our kids. He says he will rather be the one to work hard outside and bring the bread home. We are v happy with the arrangement as we both didn't like the idea of having a maid or caregiver to take care of our kids.

starfruit..I am opp from you leh, i super not sticky to my boy. He also can be without us cause, just be with my parents go liao. This april me and hubby went tokyo for 8 days, he did not look for us at all!!



I prefer to go just ourselves, easier, no need to bring so many stuff..I will bring him to Japan in 2012, by then 5+ liao, should be ok. And leave the baby at home.



vv..actually hubby rewarded me liao..upgrade me to a bigger diamond ring and bought a pair of earrings for me...I was very happy when buying..but when i reach home, I think i still prefer going for a trip..



Joycep, me still exploring local hotel stay also if really even nearby resort I can't go.



Auroa, you sure have your way, but then i also use the same method sometimes if hubby dun give in to me..keke..
