    Hello ladies
    Sorry I was lil busy lately..I went thru chinese confinement and did it by gathering a few recipes from the Internet. Since I can't read Chinese I gave up on the idea to even look for Chinese confinement book in hk.
    It's through some research that I realise there are good ones written by Singapore/Malaysian author. Recipe i followed where "copied" from those books. Apparently, If you go to Popular- the bookstrore in Sg, you may find it. (I'm still looking to buy it online, if u can adv a website for this pls)
    I went to Commercial Press bookstore in Hk. (Thinking I might have a chance) if you do go there, try to look at the cooking section, they do have a few Chinese-English confinement recipe book. Those book target domestic helper- not really me(it's trilingual with tagalong!) But still it's a good option. Because it describe the herbs with pictures and also tell u their functions..I gotta say that there not many options but I'm happy to have bought one at 34hkd :)

    Agree with "What to Expect" for informational purposes. I would also highly recommend "Nine Months Strong" by Karen Bridson which focuses on the mum rather than the baby. An easy read with plenty of useful tips and exercises. Also reading "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" (Curtis & Schuler) as the weeks go by... some of it is irrelevant as it's from the US but have found is useful too.
