went for a check up today
wifey is now 9 weeks and 5 days
the due date is either november 26th or 27th
why am i not sure?
well, because it says 11/26 on the ultrasound but the doc wrote down 11/27 on the report
regardless, guess we're gonna have ourselves a sagittarius baby
baby is coming along nicely and is starting to take shape
so far, so good...
i'm still smiling ear to ear

looking through my hard disk earlier today, i realized i've got a shitload of pictures
this gave me the idea to start doing some retro posts
these will basically posts to share past experiences and old pictures i've got saved up in my computer
just something to post about when i'm bored, got nothing to write about or on a rainy day
so, let's go back...
a few months ago, wifey and i went to hai pa wang in tucheng
if you like seafood and shabu shabu, then this is a great place to go
the food was very fresh, with fairly big portion and reasonably priced
the interior and decor was pretty nice too

a few weeks ago when i got home from work
wifey showed me this...
that's right, we are now expecting a baby!
my reaction at the time...
yes! and wow!
yes! we are gonna have a baby!
wow! i'm gonna be a father!
we are very very very happy and excited, so is the rest of the family
yesterday we went to do a check-up and heard and saw the baby's heartbeat for the first time
it was awesome!
that was one of the coolest things i've ever seen
i was smiling ear to ear
i am smiling ear to ear just thinking about it now
wfiey's about 8 weeks now
we don't know the due date yet, but it should be around end of november
sometimes when i think about it, i'm still in awe and having a hard time believing it
i'm gonna be a father!
so far, so good...
life is going according to plan

ultrasound scan at 7 weeks. circled in red is the the embryo (fetus). the blue arrow is pointing to the baby's heart.

woke up earlier than usual this morning
a lot earlier
hammers and drills and a few men shouting real loud in taiwanese will do that
what was going on?
this monstrosity was put up right in front of my place...
the view from my bedroom window on the 2nd floor
ugly and illegal
what an eye sore
just one of the many enjoyments of living in taiwan

when wifey and i went shopping a while ago
i just couldn't resist...
no, that's not for me
that's for my future offspring
will it be a superboy or a supergirl?
regardless, we are gonna have a superkid!
they did have them in adult sizes
i was so tempted but no
kinda regret it now that i didn't get one for myself
hmm... i think i'll go back and see if they are still available
don't tell anyone tho'

it was a great little trip
2 nights, 3 days
the weather could have been better but we still enjoyed ourselves
it's always great to get away from the city
got to meet some new family and also see some whom i haven't seen in a long time
got to vist and pay respects to grandpa, great grandpa and great-great grandpa
it's always a great feeling and for some reason, a sense of pride and accomplishment
however, i had my down time and felt blue as i still miss grandpa very much to this day
that made me appreciate the time i spent with my parents during this trip even more
times like that are becoming more and more rare as i grow older and start my own family
on the highway heading south. departed at 7am (on wednesday) and made it to pingtung around lunch. not too bad considering we stopped over 1 hour total for bathroom breaks and such.
almost there. i love this strecth of the drive with the ocean on one side and hills on the other.
uncle's (dad's cousin) place in hengchun.
driving past southbay on the way to kenting
having a few drinks with my pops during the night at a bar in kenting. didn't drink too many since we've had a long day at that point and were pretty tired from the drive, plus we had to get up early in the morning for tomb sweeping.
"sweeping" great-great grandpa's grave
great grandpa and grandpa's place
streets of kenting slowly filling up with people getting ready for spring scream
we spend the last night and day in kaosiung, where we visited fo guang shan

here i am with wifey and my parents in pingtung
sorta a mini-vacation
we are in hengchun to be exact
my dad was born here in hengchun so we are here due to the tomb sweeping holidays
we were hoping to escape the crappy weather in taipei since it's usually pretty nice and warm here year-round
it's cold and windy down here with a bit of rain
still, it's not as bad as up north
we are just 10 minutes drive away from kenting
you know what that means
spring scream! (called spring wave this year)
oh so tempting but no
we don't want anything to do with that drug infested mayhem
still, i will definitely find me some bar in kenting and have a few beers
it's only the right thing to do
gotta go, gotta go... don't have much time
we rarely come down here nowadays, so got lots of family and friends to see
for those in taiwan, enjoy the holidays
