Fourteen years ago today, I was the happiest woman alive on earth. I finally met my long-awaited baby. After years of battling PCOS, infertility and fertility treatments, I held my bundle of joy for the first time. It was the best feeling ever.
The 9 months of my pregnancy was fraught with stumbling blocks one after another: a German measles scare, horrible round-the-clock morning sickness, spotting for 3 months, an ultra sensitive uterus which rendered me to be put on partial bed-rest until the 35th week and much more.
I was only truly happy and believed that I was having a baby when I finally met my precious baby. I remember very vividly my baby’s cries when she was first delivered via c-section. When our anesthesiologist friend (Dr PK Wong) placed her on my chest, she stopped crying immediately, as if she recognized my soothing voice. And she winked at me! This beautiful baby with skin as fair as snow, rose bud red lips and sweet deep dimples captured my heart right away. I was completely besotted with her and since that day, I was set to be her slavery mom for life. And there will never be any regret.
This year Alycia gets to celebrate her birthday in Hong Kong again with her doting aunt (hubs’ eldest sister), uncle, grandma and Sherilyn. Three years ago, she celebrated her birthday in the air on her flight to Auckland and two years ago she celebrated her birthday in Hong Kong.
These are the birthday celebration pix taken today in Hong Kong:
The girls’ koo ma treated them to a buffet lunch with a super impressive spread of international gastronomical fare.
Wish I was there too!

With doting grandma:
Happy birthday my dearest precious baby Alycia. You will always be mummy’s special little one. You’re one year older today and I pray that you’ll be one year wiser too. May you forever be blessed with good health, happiness, a kind and compassionate heart and lots of good luck chasing you 💕😘💋
