A child is born- You were 11 days early dude.

The exciting sequence of events the day before that eventually led to the inevitable...

31Jan 2030hrs - Mommy-to-Be Rachel was walking towards my working desk, ready to feed my fishes when she suddenly vanishes into the toilet. 10 mins later, she Instant Message me..."I want to go back home...i think i got 'show'"

31Jan 2041hrs - OMG!!! Acting really cool in front of my colleagues, i packed my bag and waved them goodbye. 11 days earlier dude...I just wasn't prepared.

31 Jan 2300hrs - Home. Bathed. Settled Down. We called the doc and briefly told him about situation. Doc says "Bring her in by midnite". Its 'SHOW' TIME!! (pardon the pun :))

1 Feb 0000hrs - At the operation room. Had volunteer bravely to be there for her before and now here i am, like a small boy waiting on his first dental visit... damn.

1 Feb 0001hrs-0500hrs - COLD!!!Brrrrrrr..... drew out my handphone and started to exercise my fingers furiously...stabbing on the buttons.. it was time to give live commentary to my friends...other than that, spent 2 hrs watching 'live' EPL football in the operation room.

Feeling bored.. we also took photos..

1 JFeb an 0600hrs - Contraction had started on Rachel and you could see the grimace on her face already. she wasnt doing the "v" sign no more and nurses were coming more often to see on her.

1 Feb 0730hrs - Dr. Kee had came in and like any other day at work, took on a broad smile on this poor couple, and started his rountine checks. "No worries" he said, it will take a while more.

1 Feb 0830hrs - ok..wasnt so cool anymore. Mommy Rachel was in real pain already and she was using a lot of the laughing gas to help easen her pain. She has previously opt out of epidural and i bet at that moment, she was regretting being such a brave girl already.

It were made worse with screaming that were coming from the other room. The women was a real screamer and she was really crying father and mother. Silence filled the air in this room.

1 Feb 1030hrs - Mommy Rachel was hitting UNBEARABLE Pain already. By this time, the nurses are attending to us attentively, awaiting for the doctor's entrance. All Father to be could do was to offer a hand for Mommy to bite on. Helpless like a puppy... doc came in...

Congrats and a Big Cheer to Mum and Dad for the big joy coming to this world... alas, SOFAkers will have a new left back, pity it will take at least a good 15 years before he starts playing for SOFA. For now, we have to be contented with papa Blondie...sigh...

Best regards
