Our last threesome Valentine's Day

Due to my fear for natural delivery, we had to schedule for a elective Caesarean section 2 weeks prior to my EDD. We were given the dates 15th or 17th Feb. I chose the 17th which is not that near to V day and also because 17th is a Fri so it would be more convenient for K to bring XY down to the hospital over the weekend. Just to digress a little here why I am afraid of natural delivery... For my 1st pregnancy, I live in fear everyday after gestation week 37. Fear that my waterbag will leak during my sleep or contraction pain would come anytime. I will NOT even go into the details of my birth story which consisted of initial planned natural delivery but ended up with a emergency C section which resulted me to stay in MAH for 6D 5N.

Anyway back to the topic. I had the few days off before my operation date to prepare for last minute baby stuff, me-time and to do a bit of cooking before the little one comes. So I decided to make use of my new HCP to cook a simple dinner for Valentine's Day. *If you do not know what is a HCP, pls do yourself a favour by searching on youtube or switch on to Channel U on weekend mornings before the actual programme starts.* The good mummy in me also bought a slice of Cedele cake just so that my little girl can sing her "Happy Birthday" (I tried to tune it to "Happy Valentine's Day" but it didn't really work with her), blow the candle and eat the cake.

Dinner in preparation.

And that's our V Day dinner. Not at all romantic but at least it's something different (Read: more interesting) from my usual cooking.



Family of 3 finished all the food. Thank you my sweet daughter for your kind support for the yakitori. Your sweet mum marinated the chicken thigh meat and mid joints 1 day before ok.







Just in case you are wondering... I was inspired by Shin Kushiya's Kushiyaki but not very inspired by the price so I tried my best to replicate it at home :D
