1. Our “babymoon” is booked, and this is where we are going.  The Gaya Island Resort, near Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. (We will also spend a couple of days in Kota Kinabalu town).

    I think pregnancy is turning me into a resort person, because I cannot wait for a couple of days of pool-lazing, snorkelling, and general relaxation.

  2. — For when we run away and live in the woods.

  3. "Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions."

  5. Opening those shoulders and sticking out that belly 

  6. Yoga is a bit different now, but it’s still happening. Just gotta leave a bit more room for this big ol’ belly. #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #prenatalyoga #bump


  7. Things I’m loving lately:

    • Swimming (especially with my nifty new maternity togs by Zoggs)
    • Water, water, and more water.
    • Yoga (always)
    • Grapes
    • Shopping (I’m a little out of control)
    • Sleep!

    Things I’m NOT loving lately:

    • Asian food (very inconvenient, living in Asia and all) and anything too flavourful
    • Hot weather
    • The smell of our neighbours making sun-dried fish
    • Reading
    • Tight clothing
    • My stuffed up nose.

  8. Travelling is so confusing. I just arrived home to Brunei from New Zealand.

    It’s lunch time now, but my body isn’t totally sure. Which is probably not helped by the fact that I have had 3 dinners, two breakfasts, and 6 hours of sitting up broken sleep since whatever time I arrived at the airport yesterday (I think it was about 23 hours ago).

    The Engineer is at work, but he has my back. He left the house clean and tidy, with all the little tasks he was meant to do done. There was a note to say welcome home. And best of all, there was a big healthy (delicious) salad (boiled egg, roast potatoes, greens, capsicum, tomato) waiting for me in the fridge.

    This post has been weird. But as I said, travelling is confusing!

  9. It’s a New Zealand coffee. A bit like a latte but with less froth and more steamed milk (and usually stronger).

    It’s pretty much the best.


  10. A decaf single shot flat white in New Zealand beats the best flat whites in Brunei.

    I love coffee.
