third trimester woes

September 18, 2018 • 11 comments • 15290 views

I’m usually a cheerful and positive person (still am!) but I’ve gotta be completely honest – these last few weeks of pregnancy are proving to be super letih-licious, just like how it was for Daniel and Mariam’s pregnancy.

First trimester problems are out the door, thank God, but now third trimester problems are here – can’t find a good position to sleep which results in late night Netflix binge and sleep deprivation which results in a groggy wife in the morning which results in snapping at husband which results in #prayforfadza. Haha.


getting nervous

Wearing satin silk scarf from dUCk and batik top from Radzuan Radziwill, from FashionValet. 

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and suddenly it hit me. Omg Baby S is coming next month. ¬†Next month, I’m going to be a mom of 3. Suddenly I got nervous. Am I going to be a competent mom? How am I going to be fair to Baby S when I have two other kids who also want my attention?

It’s all happening so fast. Well actually, not really – I can’t wait to be done being pregnant. If you’ve been following me from Daniel and Mariam’s pregnancies, you’d know that I’m no pregnancy poster child. Haha. Just two days ago I told Fadza I can’t wait to get the baby out haha. #teaminduce #onlywhendoctorsayscanornecessary #havetoputdisclaimerhehe


write so you never forget

I’m staring at the blank box to pour my words in and that beautiful feeling is coming back – the blogger in me is alive again! I haven’t blogged for almost 2 months guys… TWO MONTHS! It’s been a crazy period, but let’s face it – no excuses, Vivy, you were just slacking off!

But not today guys… not today, my friends… because today was a really really good day that I just want to remember. I told my best friends that I really miss blogging and so many good moments happen everyday that if I don’t write them down like I diligently did before, they’re all going to fade in forgotten memory land. So I don’t want to let that happen. No matter how tired I feel at the end of every night, with long days at work and beautiful yet tiring nights with the kids.


the mysterious case of missing pencils

What is it with our kids and the universal mystery of missing pencils?!

I keep having to buy new pencils for Daniel (actually come to think of it… eraser, ruler, colour pencils, sharpeners…) until I don’t know where to put my face at Smiggle anymore. They must think I hoard children’s stationery *facepalm*… or that I’m just a mom who can’t keep her kids’ things together! Which is kinda true I guess haha.

The conversation with my pen-missing hero:

Me: Daniel, seriously, where are all your pencils? There’s only one in here!


neither praises nor insults

I haven’t been blogging about work much lately because (a) so many things are happening so fast and at the same time so by the time I’m on it, it’s already old news and I’m on the next thing and (b) work is taking up a lot of my time, for good reasons. In a super duper brief nutshell, we had two big institutions invest in the FashionValet Group this year for our Series C funding, we opened more retail outlets, we restructured the other business units under the group like private labels and brand acquisitions, we are focusing on building more brands. As for dUCk, it’s been doing amazingly well – we opened at KLCC (next to Chanel and Dior!!) and dUCk Cosmetics even got into Sephora which is something unheard of for the local cosmetics industry.
