I used to be a vainpot who try to live by Coco Chanel’s philosophy of fixing myself up before leaving the house. But ever since Buddy came along, his needs become priority. It has come to a point that, when I am not working, I hardly apply make up when I leave the house except when I go to town or it’s a special occasion. Using a local phrase, I’ve become “auntified” (AKA “soccer mom-like”).
Anyway this blog is created for me to put down my two cents worth on food, fashion, beauty, and a little on something else. But after I got pregnant and have a baby, the posts veer toward my pregnancy experience and motherhood, which is also a reflection of my change in perspectives. From a ‘me first’ person to someone who puts priority on her child.
Anyway why ‘Petulant Child’? It’s what my husband describes me at times, when instead of behaving like a matured adult, I get into a fucked-up mood. Such childish behavior is extremely rare now that I have responsibility as a mother, the first time I’ve taken up such a big task. It’s interesting how parenthood changes you. Still this blog is not just about baby, I continue to write about my favorite topic of food and cheongsam, though much less on beauty and fashion. (See the change in priority.)
