cd 5 cycle 16, 3rd day of puregon jabbin

i got more tired aft gym on tues, sleepin on é sofa for like 1 hr late noon while laundryin is goin on in kitchen.

wed was a nightmare. i could hardly get out of bed even at 10am. i was 30mins late from my planned jab time. i staggered out of bedrm, was hardly able 2stand up straight n rest on sofa 4another 10 mins… mayb begining of a nightmare.

finally made my way 2é fridge n jab another dose of 150iu puregon. é rest of é day was still feelin tired, lethagic n restless. tml onwards i will hav 1 more injection for 5days (thur-mon). hope i dun feel worse aft this additional drug.

image

but i did not let myself roll on sofa or bed longer. made lunch, noodles, cai xin n frozen seafood.. aft lunch i vaccum é house, mop n clean up our home a bit. it’s been a while n thgs r gettin dusty…

bath, used é long bought body scrub, fancl powder scrub sample… as part of my effort 2clear these long time purchase…
image
tidied è working desk n moved my laptop in2 é platform rm, fixed é fallin out stuff in é rm. it’s been too long, no more slacking. all thgs in place, on pc, printed é KL trip air tickets, checked details again, clipped on our little white board. together w/my medan trip, they are all in one stack. am applying 4jobs, hopefully will get smthg i will enjoy doing! smtimes i think back do i regret leavin my seemingly pretigous position in é bank n laze @hm 无所事是 all day… actually i really dun, i would hav gone crazy if i stayed on. now i look 4ward 2a new role, either something i like or something less with responsibility.

this is my wish n plan, god bless, please let it come true. but as always life throws us all over è place, so nx yr this tim, xmas, let’s see how n wat we will be!

18-29 nov – stimulating med
2 dec – er
4 dec – et
7-8 dec – medan
11 dec – dental aptm
13-15 dec – KL
16 dec – start work (watever work)
21 dec – blood test, bfp (hopefully)
early sep 2014 – edd healthy bb (hopefully hopefully please!!)

like i always say my wishes to zsnn, please bless us with a healthy baby, we will 还願 with red eggs, share è blessings with more 信徒 n 添香油.

i really tried my best, keep my weight not over 60kg, exercise as n when i can. rest, drk vit c, cherries.

please let this nov 2013 cycle b a success with a good pregnacy n healthy baby, i m not afraid of é loneiness @hm alone, giddy/headache, pain of injection or any discomfort to come with er, but i m very frighten of failure.. afraid 4af to start.. sobzz… i imagine while waitin 2go 4er, if i meet sm1 @é operatin theatre while queuing, i will smile n tell é person how scared i m of failure…

thundery fri!!

juz as i was contemplating wat 2tak 4lunch, i boil 2 eggs…  felt a gush n headed 2washrm, thinkin my estimation wun b so b so accurate bah… in é end, tada!! i really see sm light red discharge… it is as per my marking, although it’s not really cd1 real flow, but at least é 21 days of nor-e n full breakout all over my face, esp chin, is a true indicator of menses startin… i called kk but i think i can only call again later or tml, as they mark real flow as d1, n 2go kk d2 or d3 from start of real flow…

i m on way 2massage now, mayb é last one in a while… é very unprof people @é spa can say all they wan, but me am.nkt goin 2sign anythg w/them… they dun really deliver wat they mean.. lik my 90 min massage dun cum w/é mask anymore…

on thurs nite, met up w/é watsapp group gers 2break é curse. hope it works, i got nothing much 2share, more 2listen 2their thoughts…

hav been lookin @hotel bookin, to use up é 1free night earned from europe trip last yr… deciding btwn penang or kl. let’s see how.

aft massage, i walked 2far east 4a hair wash n 2meet ex-clg 4kopi… é salon is 4ever askin customers 2add on this treatm shampoo n that scalp ampoule, or tak a package 4washin hair… the px dif is lik dif of sgd0.30, why will i wan 2lock myself up for 10x of hairwash for sgd 3??
normal sgd18 less 15% from member card = sgd 15.30
package sgd 15
can i juz wash my hair in peace, anyway they serve yummy biscuits, was quite dump to not try it before…

hanoi exploring apr’13 part 1 of 2

6 apr, we took off 2hanoi. this is a trip booked since cny.. gosh, é sq gkts r super cheap! sgd766 for 2return tkts..

upon arrival, è hotel staff pick us from é arrival gate, we boarded a luxury toyota camry n set off 2é hotel!

é traffic dun standstil, even when traffic light turns red… for me, it was ok.. everywr we go, he would hold my hand… esp when we cross buzy roads… n in the very messy city, he studied è map n we breeze through all…

despite been geared for hot n humid week, it turned out cool n dry most of é time, n the jacket i brought for sapa turn out in most pics…

é 1st 2days are ok.. old quarter n french quarter… nothing special… we roamed around till it was time for sapa train.. è bellboy who brought us to è train station is so cute! he was frantically
callin è reception cuz we were too early…

nevertheless we boarded è bunk bed train n set off to sapa.. é lady opp me on lower berth is from china.. she speaks vietnamese… quite chatty…

there was a rail accident juz before lao cai station.. so the train like stopped for an hour, then move to another location, wr we climbed down the train to transfer to another train 2lao cai… tat scene was so dramatic! luckily everyone was calm n patient, locals n tourist alike.. helped each other, n moved to the transfer train…

from there we reached sapa, meet up é driver n started an exciting hour long ride to sapa town! this driver skill is good n he is a bold one… we met out guide, we soon started trekkin to the villages… there were some village people following us throughout till lunch stop.. i was so scared n i dun even dare to talk to them…

they did dampen our mood to admire é beautiful landscape… if only they are not around.. we will be able to enjoy it better… è food is good.. although it’s quiet, like hardly no one dine there…

è rest of è hiking made me feel really fortunate to be born in s’pore… è return
leg from sapa is really funny.. w/a local playin pop songs from mobile loudly n hittin his head.. i fell asleep to é
music actually…

zermatt: a good compromise, good wifi

geneva: despite it’s shady neighbourhood, this is quite a peaceful hotel, w/stairs lik those u see on leisure cruise…

lyon: right nx 2rail station, though we could not check in early, it’s still a good choice

brussels: opp rail stn, too bad no wifi. one of è better one too

london: è most cramp one, n they really charge everythg u can imagine…

paris: jewel, cheap, opp eurostar stn, reliable wifi, nice self serve bar w/water n drks, breakfast… love it…
