    Hiya

    I just checked back on Geobaby today - first time this month! - so must apologise for not replying to your friendly posts sooner (Won't be so absent-minded, silly, next time...)

    lisa88 and i are meeting with any moms/moms to be more than welcomed to join! we've arranged to meet 12 sept (sat) at festival walk pacific coffee at 3 pm...
    solidstars & lisa88 - GREAT you've set up a get-together on Sat, tomorrow @ 3pm, at Fest Walk in Kowloon Tong (15mins from me!), but as I've only just found out about it, afraid won't be able to make it.

    Would love to meet you's, more moms OR moms-to-be, in the area in the coming week or weekend. Ideally, next Fri teatime? (18th), or Sat/Sun (19th/20th) any time in the afternoon. Similarly, at Kowloon Tong's Pacific Coffee - OR in Elements mall above Kowloon Station MTR - wherever's most convenient for others, fine with me.

    I am from Singapore and has been living in HK for the past 9 years.
    So you girls are from Singapore? My HK-Chinese hubby lived and studied many years there, thus picking up fluent Mandarin, BUT sadly, I don't speak Mandarin, just a fair amount of Cantonese to get by OK in HK as I've been here years.

    anbrasia - I can imagine how stressful moving to another place/city can be - with everything NEW to deal with in unfamiliar settings PLUS another exciting addition to your family! Yeah, it'll take a bit of time to settle in, but not to worry... you will

    Looking forward to meeting new friends, parents, parents-to-be, in or around Kowloon. And please excuse my ill-chosen message "title", didn't actually mean for it just to be aimed at Chinese/Asians.

    Hm, baby in me belly's kicking more and more each day... Lively little fella.

    hi gem, i can't do the rest of this months w/es, jammed pack with mid-autumn festivities... but how about 10 oct or the weekend after? elements is fine with me, it was good meeting lisa88 and her lovely baby but pacific coffee was really packed with people/students!!! we thought our next gathering should be someplace reservable...

    hope your bump's coming along well!

    Hi there, solidstars - Yeah, understandable, it's quite some feat getting times & dates "matching" and suiting folks. Especially when things like T8s and seasonal fests/hols have a habit of popping up round the corner, eh :-)

    Well, 10th Oct, Saturday in Elements - afternoon? - sounds GOOD to me. Hope that one or two others, + maybe Obiwan and bubi who've mentioned they're just right above (Kowloon Station), can also make it.

    Will continue to keep an eye out for any other threads here re: earlier "coffee" get-togethers this side of HK. (May meet another new mom who's PM'd me here, too.)

    Recently, babe's a right lil' acrobat when I'm unwinding with feet up, lounging... Hm, I'm on decaf coffee, plus the odd cuppa hot chocolate, these days - should I be laying off these, as well?

    i should be able to join on 10 Oct afternoon, look forward to it!

    Hi Gem, I would say everything in moderation, when I was pregnant I had one cup of coffee a day (love the aroma) and a glass of wine about once a week. The rest of the time I ate really healthily and exercised (swimming, prenatal yoga and prenatal massage) My obstetrician was cool about it and baby turned out fine.

    my doctor explained that when you're moving, the baby is rocking and therefore still, but when you are sitting still/feet up/etc the baby has a chance to be active and kick around!

    10 sat it is then, let's say 230 pm for now and confirm closer to the date!

    Oh, I wish I had caught this thread sooner; I am a first-time mom due late Jan/early Feb and also live on top of Elements. I'm an ABC and definitely would like to meet more moms to be or current moms in the area. Oct 10 happens to be my husband's birthday! But maybe I can still stop by and say hello, and I'll watch this forum for future get-togethers.
