If I lay here

19th July: Babysat Caity and Andrew for awhile and they were both unfortunately unwell on a Saturday.

This bug/virus is so strong that it hit Caity really hard. Have never seen her so sick before but thankfully she bounced back after 5 days and was well enough to play with her toys and pose for photos. She is probably the only person I know who looks really pretty when she is sick. Sounds so wrong but she gets these thick double eyelids that would hopefully become permanent in the future, hehe.

Made some time to visit my brother’s potential future house before gym and it is so nice! Sigh, I can only dream about owning my own apartment…

The weekends have been flying by too quickly, how did we get so close to the end of July already?!

18th July: Supper and Hari Raya Bazaar with the netballers.

Kind of embarrassed to admit that this is my first time visiting the annual night market but better late than never and it was such a feast for the eyes and stomach. I didn’t know that the market was soooo big and it is really a one stop shop for everything a Muslim family could possibly need for their celebration. We saw everything from cars to titbits to clothes to household items. We were too full from supper but I took a fried oreo sample and it was so sinful but pretty good. 

My jetsetting girlfriends are off to different parts of the world for their holidays so it is going to be awhile until we are all back together in Singapore again.

Back to Netball: It has been quite awhile since I touched a netball but I am glad that apart from that one time I almost tripped over my own feet while demonstrating something, I have not lost touch yet. It is going to take awhile to get back into the coaching groove but I am really thankful for this opportunity to share the love of netball with more girls!

Dress shopping with Mum for my brother’s wedding.

It was fun seeing my mum try on all kinds of dresses especially since she is not a fan of shopping at all. After trying on different styles, we got a good sense of what suits my mum’s body type. Plus I am glad that I managed to convince my mum that she can indeed pull off a sleeveless long dress. Hopefully now we can hunt down THE dresses that would give off the “Mother of the Groom” vibe. 

Dress shopping is no easy feat! Maybe it is time for me to start thinking about what I want to wear too…

13th July Sunday: Church with the Chngs.

I guess you are never too young to take an OOTD or a selfie (although my sis would probably disagree, hahaha). One of the first things Caity asked me when she saw me in the morning was, “Yee yee Jan, my dress nice not?” Well, yes of course. I bought it for you. Hahaha!

After Sunday school I wanted to reply my mum’s voice messages to Caity with a picture and wow I wasn’t expecting such exaggerated expressions. I tried to follow but of course how can I match that level of cuteness?

Another weekend down, less than four weekends to go.

12th July Saturday: Dimsum brunch with the Chngs before I babysat the kids while my sister and jiefu packed the house. It is quite strange to see them packing their things away in boxes because it makes their move feel soo soon and real. 

Anyway the kids getting really active and playful which makes it fun (most of the time). Played ball with Caity, which gave me some hope that she could be a future netballer (hahaha an aunt can dream). While Drew is always eager to stand and/or chew on things. It is quite funny to hear him “talk”/make noises and see him turn his whole body away from me to reject the avocado I was trying to offer him.

Almost thought of skipping gym for a nap but I am very happy I didn’t. Hardcore maxx (a HIIT class) is my latest gym class addiction.
