our saturday

the first half of yesterday was quite packed....

woke up early for the baby expo.
we have never been to one and just wanted to see what it is about.
when we got there, there were already alot of people.
the brandy brandy booths like johnson baby, enfapro have long long lines of ppl lining up for freebies...
of course somotu did not have the patience to wait in line....
i think we were probably the few couples who didn't get as many freebies...
the only freebies we got was a tiny diaper, a recycle bag and a CD demo on learning english.

about those booths on learning english....
some sales said to us that bb should start learning english now....
then showed us flash cards which at the touch of a specially designed pen, the name of the object shown on the flash card would be spoken out loud via the pen....
you could even adjust the speed of the word being spoken from slow to fast....
the card which was shown to us has a picture of a dog on it.  "DOG" in perfect english accent.... then followed by "wow wow"
the sales said "all words are pronounced with perfect english accent".....  went on and on and on.
i looked at somotu and i knew he found it ridiculous...
so we moved on....
i asked somotu what did he think of the english learning stuff....
he said, "we have two real dogs at home.  so we can just point at the dogs and teach bb ourselves!  no need to pay $$$$ for them!!"... "and i can teach bb the perfect local accent!".... "who cares about accent as long as bb can speak and ppl understand?"
i said, "then i must also get a cat, a rabbit, a mouse.........  so our bb will know more than just dogs"......
i have always wanted more pets at home....  good!  haha

we then had a quick lunch before i rushed off to my massage session.
a friend recommended this place to me.
the lady specializes in massaging for pregnant women.
i desperately need one!  i feel like my whole body is broken, especially my shoulders...
the session is 1.5 hours only....  i wished it was longer...

right after, we went to CWB to do more errands..
boy, was it hot yesterday...
poor somotu looked as if he was soaked in rain... only it wasn't rain... he was extremely hot...

got home around 5pm....
glad to be home after a long hot day....

Does sound like a long day! Although the massage sounds nice.

I had my very first "real" massage during my vacation, it was great, but I agree, a little too short:P
