Pregnant during Covid19!

I initially blogged this for another portal, 
but since they decided not to go ahead with the collaboration, 
I thought I would post it on my own blog for memories' sake! :)

--------------------------------------------------

What an unprecedented time that we live in, 
and to be pregnant & to give birth during this period of uncertainty! 

36 weeks pregnant 32 weeks pregnant

 I consider myself lucky that this is my second child - 
my son Momo is now 2.5 years old. 
I can only imagine the nerves if I had to experience my first childbirth during Covid.

 

As a second-time mom, I know exactly what I need for a newborn - 
from bathing and diapering, to feeding and sleeping, to breastfeeding! 
In fact, I breastfed Momo exclusively from birth till about 14 months, 
and weaned him at about 18 months after he took well to formula milk.

Osaka Kyoto Ishikawa trip with the JR West Rail Pass!

Finally took a trip with my family & little Momo - 
we went to Osaka/Kyoto/Ishikawa and a bit of Okayama/Kobe 
with the 7-day Kansai Hokuriku Area pass!



We made the booking at JTB
(You can book at NTA, HIS, and any other travel agency in Singapore)
and upon arrival at Osaka Kansai Airport
we exchanged for our passes right at the
JR Ticketing Office at the Airport Station.



Everyone is familiar with Osaka & Kyoto 
but for the lesser known parts of Japan, 
we had Irene So help to plan and recommend our itinerary.

You can consult her for trip planning, 
as she is an expert in lesser known parts of Japan!
If you find JR West Rail Pass confusing, 
she can also advise you on that.

We checked out Universal Studios on our very first day!

7 Day Margaret River + Perth Itinerary with a 2 year old toddler

I have such fond memories of farm stay in Perth as a child, 
and the perfect weather, fresh produce, farmstays and rolling green grass makes 
Perth + Margaret River such a great vacation for young families!




Momo's favourite song had been Old McDonald Had A Farm for the longest time, 
so besides bringing him to the zoos in Singapore, 
I really looked forward to a legit farm stay in Perth :)



Read on for my full itinerary!


Perth Day 1: Breakfast Cafe Hopping / Fremantle Market

We arrived in Perth at 6am,
so I checked out cafes that opened from 7am onwards.




After picking up our car from Hertz,
(it was super fuss free and simple)
we headed to La Veen Coffee.

  


Day 2 Margaret River - Farmer's Market & Luxury Escapes Ultimate Degustation Menu at Leeuwin Estate

Farmer's Market is only available on Saturday mornings -
I highly recommend it, 
so if you could schedule your trip to coincide that will be great!




Day 3: Burnside Organic Farm / Lunch at Glenarty Road / Hamelin Bay

We stayed at Burnside Organic Farm 
and I highly recommend it if you're keen to stay at a real working farm!
