So last year my gorgeous wife took me to Bali for my birthday, it was hot, and hectic, interesting but not relaxing haha.
I should really write about the trip at some point. Anyhow, onto this year! We decided against a trip, as it’s expensive and can be a hassle. So I suggested she get me a nice present and take me for dinner instead – which she did, and did very well too!
She got me the Fitbit Aria smart Wi-fi scale to go with my Fitbit Force (which is unfortunately undergoing a recall).
I might write more about the scale later, if anyone is interested.
And then on Friday, my actual birthday, she took me for a really lovely degustation menu at Soleil in PJ, Section 17.
Good food, good wine and of course the very best company available 🙂 After that it was off to TDH, our usual birthday joint to see my bro with the same birthday – Terence, and I had to do the judgement pipe..not pleasant.
And after we went to Velvet at Zouk..I don’t even remember the last time I went there – I’m still tired today haha.
We’ve gotten a few other bits and bobs too lately (which is nice!) – like a PS4, PSB Surround sound system, new router, new leather sofa and gotten a few things around the house fixed (broken lights, some leaks in the porch, got some new artificial grass, cat-proofed the porch etc), sold off a bunch of stuff I wasn’t really using any more. And it was all good timing too, as I guess we’ll be spending more time at home, we need a puke proof sofa and a well kept house.
Because…WE ARE HAVING A BABY! Yes, we decided to announce on my birthday, so we let the people know that were there – and if you weren’t you probably might already know, or if not – well now you know! We don’t know the gender yet, but the baby should be due around September 22nd 2014.
Even got a label maker for the baby book haha. So yah, it’s on – so excited!
So it surely is going to be an interesting year, it’s already been quite a journey and there’s so much to learn. Yes I’ll be the confinement lady, if you have any tips..let me know haha.
My mother in law is so concerned that I said I’ll learn to wash the baby from Youtube, like really it can’t be that hard right?
Sometimes I feel like I should start blogging again, but then again it feels like no-one is reading – but honestly that shouldn’t be the motivation right?
Also any well loved, high quality, useful baby gear is welcome over here if any of you out there are all done having babies and still have some stuff lying around.

Thanks thanks, yah that would be a cool birth date eh? Hahaha.
Gareth, took me a few internet page changes and then the proverbial light bulb went off!
Congrats to you and your lovely spouse on impending parenthood!
Cool your are 36! Transpose those numbers and you know my age!
You are a fortunate man! Finding an marrying such a beautiful and talented women.
Being a very slow learner, I married when I was 38, to a lovely Filipina. There was a reason I was made to wait so long.
BTW, I am using a Fitbit zip. Do not have the Aria. The Zip is helping my aging body deal some accumlated excess weight. I have been walking at least two miles a day for the last month, and my wife and signed on with a local gym for resistance excercises.
Belated happy birthday!
Thanks muchos David 🙂 Ah, still young at heart though!
The Aria is really cool, seen as though the Fitbit account tracks weight, it’s easier than keying it in manually and it measures body fat percentage too.
But yah, the Fitbit definitely helps with motivation.
