the perfect woman

i remember when i was in school, the dear old principal used to tell us the importance of being a woman who "ru de chu fang, chu de ting tang'. loosely translated, it means a woman who is capable both at home and out (whether its working or just being the woman behind the successful man?). I used to think and believe that that was really cliche! why should a woman's place be in the kitchen/home/behind the husband? then, i felt that i wanted to be a career woman... but now that i look back, her reminder seems perfectly reasonable. would it be great to be the 'perfect woman'? to be one who is well-groomed and yet takes care of the house/family immaculately? better still, an independent who earns her own keep and can balance work/family life well. i aspire now to be someone like that and hope that our little princess will also pick up some of these traits from me.

i spent thursday sewing some pillow cases for our princess... with the excess cloth, i decided that she'll need another set of bedding so i sewed that too. yesterday, i spent some time to prepare kueh pie ti fillings for DH's friends (which incidentally, is a lot of work!). now i genuinely believe that pregnancy does drain away some of your energy coz i'm absolutely beat!! as i write this entry, i'm preparing to go for the last hypno-birthing class later this afternoon... and after that, we are 'officially' ready to welcome our princess to the family. enjoy the photos while we get ready... :)
