Let's start from midnight.
12-1am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Sleep.
2-3am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Sleep.
4-5am: Breastfeed baby for 15-20 minutes. Change his diaper. Carry him around the house for a while.
5-6am: If I'm lucky, baby sleeps. If not, I'll put him on the bed and let him babble away while I pat his back.
6-7am: Breastfeed baby if he wakes up. If not, I'll continue to sleep.
7-8am: Talk to baby a while, might need breastfeeding if he wants it. Take a really quick shower. Gobble down my breakfast of oats, milk, cereal, and biscuits.
8-9am: Prepare baby's warm bath water. Wipe him down. Change his diaper. Dress him up. Talk to him a while. Breastfeed him for 10 minutes until he's somewhat drowsy.
9-10am: Put baby in car seat. Drive to babysitter's house. Depending on traffic condition, journey takes 35-40 minutes. If the day is hot with sun shining brightly into the backseat, baby will wail and I can't do anything but continue to try pacifying him with my voice while driving in the bloody jam.
11am: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.
11:30-1:30pm: Work, then lunch.
1:30pm: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.
3:30pm: Pumping time! Total yield from both breasts is approximately 2oz (50-70ml) only at the moment. Sigh.
5pm: Fetch baby from babysitter.
6-8pm: Reach home. Watch TV while breastfeeding baby. Play with him a while when he's full.
8-10pm: A combination of playing, breastfeeding, and talking to him while trying to put him to sleep. His dad will carry him around for further play time.
10pm-12am: Sleep time for me! Must sleep before the next cycle starts again. :)

Hubby's favorite steamed egg with pork. He cooked this a few weeks back. :)

My first purchase from iherb.com and I bought almond milk and Organic Milkmaid Tea. The Spring Dragon Longevity Tea packets are free samples.

Venue: 33 Jalan SS21/56B, Damansara Uptown (same row as The Ship)
Obanhmi sells Vietnam's number one baguette since 1958.
Note: Obanhmi replaced the previous Entree eatery at the same lot.
Check out their Meal Deal 1 & 2 before ordering your meal. By the way, if you want to eat freshly baked baguettes, check out their baguette reload schedule.
They are closed on Mondays.
This is my favorite dish. Dipping chunks of freshly baked baguette in a bowl of piping hot, authentic Vietnamese style beef stew is the best way to savor this dish.
Size matter? Then this is for you. Twice the load of O-Sunny, i.e. original Vietnamese Baguette served with pâté, homemade mayonnaise, ham, pickled radish & carrot, chili, cilantro, with a choice of pork or lemongrass chicken, and sunny side-up egg.
This freshly baked baguette is served with BBQ pork, sunny side-up egg, home-made mayonaise, pickled carrot & daikon, cilantro, and Vietnamese chilli sauce.
Ga means chicken. This freshly baked baguette is served with chicken teriyaki, pickled carrot & daikon, and Vietnamese chilli sauce.

A handful of seedless Chinese dried red dates, a handful of dried longan, a handful of lotus seeds, a chunk of dried white fungus, sugar, water
Cook the lotus seeds for 20 minutes in half a liter of water. Then, dump the rest of the ingredients in. Add sugar to taste before switching off heat. Serve warm.
This red dates lactating tea is known to boost breast milk supply. It's a nice add-on to my daily intake of fluid, which is mainly plain water, oat milk, soy drink, and full cream milk.
With white fungus
