knicks and knacks of baby purchasing..

21 Sept 2006

Hiyo!! Wahaha.. been like two weeks since I last blogged? Well reli been caught up with work and more work.. But now very happy as I manage to loan my school's laptop back home.. supposedly to do my school work and send emails to parents and see what I am doin right now? keke..

oh actually my main reason for bloggin today is to ask around for you opinions on whether what I should buy for my baby. ok to start the ball rolling, one of my sk.com friend actually suggested the below items:

Must buy
1. diapers
2. baby powder
3. baby lotion
4. baby wipes
5. cot + mattress for the cot
6. drinking bottle + bottle nipples + washing brushes for the bottles
7. warmer carrier for milk bottles
8. detergent that is for washing babies' clothing
9. towels (depends)
10.nappy rash cream

Take hand-me down
1. car seat
2. pram
3. baby clothes including shoes and toys

Optional pacifier
1. pacificer

well so far I already owned these few items:
1. pram (just bought recently kaka.. )
2. milk bottle sterilizer (pass downed by a frd but it is brand new)
3. baby cot bumper

Hmmm.. then this afternoon my colleague just mentioned to me it might not be necessary to buy a baby cot cos can just the baby slp with me on my mattress while let ah lao sleep on the single mattress. she said it will help cut cost lor, and the other thing is that not all babies like to sleep in cots.. make sense to me cos the cot I bio-ed is $700+... wahhaha.. reli depends whether I might buy a cot as I personally feel that price is a factor too, first child doesn't mean can splurge hor.. Anyone wanna sponser? *cover mouth laff*

haha think by next month I will write another list of items so that you can choose what to buy.. wahaha.. alright.. time for shower then supper (fillet-o-fish).. woo ho..

first purchase at mothercare..

11 Sept 2006 (part II)

heyo.. me again.. hahah too difficult to conceal my excitment so have to post two blogs today. well after the visit to KKH, ah lao and me went to plaza sing.. motive is to go to the Creative shop as he is looking for interface sticker for his MP3 player. but guess who is the bigger winner today? me.. haha.. reason being is that I actually bought a pram for my baby today! yes it cost heaps.. $429 for a baby pram sounds expensive? cos it is of Maclaren brand. and here are the descriptions:

Hehe.. and you know when the shop assistant asked ah lao to try to manovere the pram, it suddenly dawned on me that ah lao is going to be a papa! Ya.. sounds funny I know but then look at the way he manipulate with the pram.. *gosh* suddenly my ah lao become so "manly" or perhaps "fatherly" haha.. (cover ears) later he sure say I siao char bo..

Anyway.. then in the midst of wiggling through Mothercare, I also manage to find another bargain set of baby clothes for my baby.. usual price $57, now offer $35 for a set of 7 bodysuits. Worth the $$ cos of the quality. anyway I am really tryin not to buy all the blue stuffs for boy boy lah but then again got white what.. haha..

And of course today I also shortlisted this cot from Mothercare.. dunno why, it just caught my eye like that.. actually had been "bio-ing" it for a couple of times liao. but itz quite ex as the cot itself cost around $300+ to $500+ (for the two different sizes) and the mattress itself is an additional $200+.. *still contemplating*.. ah.. time for my "lovely samsoon", photos to be updated later.. kaka.. till later..

first visit to KKH..

11 Sept 2006 (part I)

hey.. today I am scheduled to go for my detail scanning for my baby at KKH. ya.. 8 am in the morning, can you imagine I woke up like 650am? Itz madness.. so after a short struggle with dreamland, I manage to wake up and of cos make ah lao wake up too.. as he gonna accompany me to KKH. Equipped with some kopi-o and tea, we soon head our way to KKH.

Upon reaching KKH, alas! I then realized I forgot my appointment book.. grr.. think I am just too stone :S anyway I still manage to do my scan.. ta dah.. here is one of the ultrasound that I got back.. oya.. in case you were wondering.. yes confirm my baby is a boy.. kaka.. *cover mouth giggle*

oh well so it was a long day.. so soon after the detail scan and the talk with the doctor, we hung around KKH for a while as we also went to sign up for an antenatal class and had a talk with the counsellor for the delivery adminstration. Phew~ antenatal class cost $150 (eyes big) for 9 sessions of 90 min each, and we had since decided to opt for B1 Premier Package for my delivery (average bill of $2880 for a normal 3 days stay).. figures and figures.. it just makes my head spin.. not to mention that I ALREADY spent $100+ for the visit to the doc today (scan fee = $70+, see doc talk for 10 min = $50+ and medicine cost $50+)... argh.. and yes... the carpark entrance also very ex.. we parked for about 4 hrs and it cost $7.20! no wonder KKH very rich.. hmm.. what to do..

anyway here are some pics of KKH..

Hehe so during the very loud event, I still manage to ask ah lao this question: Next time if our boy boy or girl girl very good looking, shall we let him or her join this kind of pagent?
