Meng, a friend just delivered her first newborn, and I am thankful that I am in town to pay her a visit.
Some new parents do not like visitors, even though they tolerate it. It is understood, since they are busy and tired with their newborn. So, I checked with Meng in advance whether visitors are welcomed, and mommy said okay.
As I am not familiar with her place, I invited Aaron to come with me. Meng, Aaron and I used to work together when we were in Starcom, they were my trusted comrades. Thank god for Aaron, for driving and reading Google map at the same time.
I checked with mommy whether there was anything that she would like for baby Evan. And she asked whether can she request things for herself.
So, I got the mommy a gift from Bangkok, chosen by herself. First-time ever that I bought a wet wipes set for a new mother! As Hello Kitty design was sold out, mommy settled with My Melody instead.
We were served stewed pork trotters in ginger and vinegar (猪脚醋), which is a regular food eaten by new mothers during confinement period. One of those ‘heaty’ dishes, believed to be warming, restorative, and strengthening. It’s very good, but I was left thirsty for a long time.
I hope we didn’t overstay our welcome. Rest well, Meng.
May Baby Evan’s babyhood be filled with lots of joy with daddy and mummy, and Yoga Boy.
