The first night I was here I had my first uninterrupted sleep in 7 months. Maybe it's because I was very exhausted after the 10 and a half hour flight. I slept so soundly that I overslept the next morning!
Over here I rely on my good old manual pump instead of the automated one. For several reasons really..
1. It's light weight. The automated one is quite bulky to bring around.
2. It's easier to pump in uncovered places i.e in the car/bus. All I do is cover up with my scarf/shawl and pump away.
3. I don't need to worry about batteries running out.
4. It's quieter so I don't draw unwanted attention.
Of course the manual pump can't compare to the automated pump's ability to pump more milk in shorter time.
It's quite a struggle to find time and place to pump here especially with the nature of my work that requires me to move around a lot.
You know, yesterday I took a flight from Auckland to Blenheim (south of New Zealand) early in the morning and went on two boat rides. I flew back to Auckland in the evening.
Today I had shoots at 4 different places and travelled from Auckland to Tauranga by car. The distance is like KL to Melaka via coastal road. Best thing about the drive is the view...
There are many more beautiful pictures in my camera, which I will share when I get back home.
Speaking of home, here's an update on my boy, Raees. The first night without me wasn't easy. He woke up hungry and it took a while to warm up the thawed milk from the fridge. I guess he was so used to getting his fresh milk fast, he got really upset.
Things were better on the second night, but not the third night though. Hope tonight will be much better. Hang in there my dear :(
So many days left, so many places to go and so many things to see! Uh, so much work to do too. Til next time...
