Bali bound with a 6 month old baby!

Ok officially our first trip overseas with Daddy now! Bali bound! ✈️

Momo went on his first with me to Hong Kong on my work trip, 
singing for Hong Kong Asian Pop Music Festival, 
and Alfredo was sooo sore that he missed out!

Momo is pretty okay on flights as long as he is entertained...
most of the time we leave it to the passengers around us to help do the job!

Mother-son twinning got everyone thinking Momo was a girl!


Caught the sunset, and Momo saw and heard the ocean for the first time!
I'm not into twinning (so I say) but matching is ok! haha

Momo loved the big king sized bed and ceiling art! 
Ok probably not as much as we looooved the king bed and the space to sleep in.

We caught the sunrise, and brought a sleeping Momo with us...
we were the first at the breakfast buffet, and that's when he woke up!

Momo’s first pool experience! 💦
Wrapped him in an aqua warmer suit for the first 2 days 
as I was worried about his first time in cold water, 
but ditched it on the 3rd day! 👙

We also pretty much went by Momo's schedule 
which consisted of two naps a day
so it was a very chill trip
with almost no agenda

to be honest,
we didn't event step out of Club Med Bali
as it was just gorgeous,
free flow food and drinks all day
and we decided to just chill and not explore Bali.

  Bali Baby Barang 

Here’s my list of essentials for baby’s first Bali trip!
He's 6 months 2 weeks btw,
his first trip was 5 months 3 weeks to Hong Kong!

* Travel toiletries 🛁 
got this convenient pack from Gaia that includes soap, shampoo and moisturizer!

* Hat 👒 
not just great for photos, this was really useful when out and about in the sun! 
he never took it off! 

* Sunglasses 🕶 
we got an unbreakable snug-fit pair from Motherswork and used it very often!

* Aviators ðŸ‘¨ðŸ»‍✈️ 
only good for photos as it was full of poky bits 
and not too safe for baby handling. 

* Sunscreen ☀️ 
I used a spray-on sunscreen which also was a lightweight mosquito repellent from Alobaby
and sometimes also applied some Aveeno cream sunscreen on him

* Mosquito patches
 luckily Momo didn’t get any bites this time

* Aqua warmer suit 👙
for his first public pool experience, 
we were worried that the water might be too cold, 
but we ditched it on his third day in the pool 
as it’s rather hot in Bali now!

* Neck float 🍩 
his first try! Momo’s never been to any baby spa before. 
He didn’t really like it I think..

* Mini Fan 🌬
(forgot to include in photo!) 
super essential! Got one that could sit on tables and be tilted at any angle.

* Hooded towel 🦄 
a unicorn one always works!
this one is from skiphop from Motherswork as well


Hold him a little longer, 
rock him a little more, 
tell him another story, 
you’ve only told him four. 
Let him sleep on your shoulder, 
rejoice in his happy smile, 
he is only a little guy, 
for such a little while. 😭

This little poem really made me cry because there are times 
when baby time can get really overwhelming
but these words really remind me that
it'll be over before it know it.

D'Elegance Shapewear for my postpartum recovery!

10 weeks postpartum
It's been 3 months since Momo came into our lives,
and I am really loving every moment of it!

I was also blessed to have had a smooth pregnancy,
and was always very grateful when I was complimented on my pregnancy glow :)

I did not have any morning sickness and ate really well,
developed a sweet tooth and in fact
put on 15 kg (from 45kg-60kg) throughout my pregnancy!


I did not give myself any fixed postnatal leave from work,
since my job is freelance by nature,
and way before I gave birth
I already took on jobs that were a month after my estimated due date.

I guess it was also a challenge for myself to quickly recover
and get back in action.
I didn't think too much of it
until the date drew near...
especially during confinement!

And my figure had completely transformed -
I was always skinny and flat,
but now I had curves I really wanted to flaunt! 
(and a tummy I definitely needed to hide!)

Really glad to have found D'Elegance Shapewear
which was pretty much a lifesaver for me
and allowed me to wear whatever I wanted - with confidence!

what to eat at Fremantle/Margaret River!

when at Fremantle...

1. Cicerellos Fish and Chips

Travelling as a couple means you can only try so much food,
especially when Aussie portions are generous.

When confronted with the eternal Cicerellos VS Kailis dilemma at Fremantle,
one can only rely on the trust you place in your good friends' taste buds.

The Traditional Fish and Chips 
was nice!
I definitely liked the texture of the fish.

I later found out from another friend who had some Premium fish or whatever,
that she asked what was the difference between Traditional and Premium
and found out that  mine was frozen fish and not fresh caught. 

Isn't Traditional meant to be the best since it started?
huh huh huh?

We had the crispy prawns bucket
which you should not have.
Save your calories for something else.

What to eat in PERTH! (and what not to...)

1. Sayers Sister
Best Brunch ever.

I enjoyed this so much that my local friend said I should then try the main cafe
Sayers Food.

Warm rustic vibes here with vintage armchairs and ornate lights

I had the beetroot salmon gravlax with the famous scrambled eggs

and Alfred had the Potato Rosti which was super delish!

Hot Chocolate done right!
This came in a luscious creamy jug topped with coconut flakes,
and chunks of white and dark chocolate in shot glasses,
with 2 marshmellows.
