FOOD, Moscow, Pregnancy, Uncategorized EUROTRIP: HOMECOOKED FOOD AND BABY CLOTHES IN MOSCOW! 14 September 2010

Since we were staying with Chris’ mum in Moscow, we took the opportunity to make a few homecooked dishes here and there. It was nice because it meant we could veg at home the whole day (and catch up on surfing on the internet – heh) and we could also have some simple, fairly healthy food.

Anyway, some of the dishes we cooked up in Moscow!


Yummy home-cooked brunch – ham, tomato, mushroom, Brie cheese toasties

A warm salad we made, our attempt at being healthy!

Grilled pork chops with veggies and mashed potatoes we cooked for dinner

This LUSCIOUS hot chocolate we bought in Barcelona. Oh it was goooood and so so rich!

“I’m watching youuuuu”

Gorgeous kitty!

On a Sunday, Chris’ mum took us to this mega mall in Moscow, which totally blows away any notion of thinking that Russia is a developing country. It’s a big mall filled with shops and Russians buying, buying, buying… much like in Shanghai! It was full of European brands, loads of womenswear and cosmetics. So much fun 😉 But we weren’t there to shop for ourselves… we were there to shop for our BABY!

Man, if we had unlimited incomes we would try and buy all the baby shops… why are baby things so IRRESISTIBLE?? Weirded me out too because just 6 months ago, I wouldn’t have bothered to look, let alone gone “Oooooh!” over anything. And now here I am reduced into a little puddle of goo at every cute thing 😉 Chris’ mum was very nice and bought us some cute little clothes and blankies that we liked.. but most of all, it mainly was just hilarious seeing Chris trailing after both of us, holding all our shopping bags and being very patient and even picking out stuff, haha! That is, until he could stand it no longer and whispered “Honnn… I HAVE to sit down and have a coffee, my legs are gonna drop off” 😉


Megamall

Cuuute lil onesies Chris’ mum bought our baby!

My absolute favourite – swaddle blanket with the cuuuutest print. It’s so soft!

          Ah! The intl brands are more expensive, like in SHanghai – so for us it was same pricing.. but for an American I guess they’d find shipping in Moscow super $$

        Sorry, totally out of context. How were shopping prices just overall at the mall?

        On our tour we basically didn’t get any chance to shop 🙁

    If you think you may have become pregnant while on Klonopin you need to keep taking it, as otherwise a seizure could occur and it could be harmful for both the mother and the baby – http://treatment-of-obesity.info/ ; the following symptoms may indicate an overdose: slowed breathing, slowed heartbeat, loss of consciousness, and drowsiness.

      She was sooo sweet with soft fur, I wanted to bring her home 😛

      Apparently you need like 10 onesies at any time, cos babies go through em so quickly – yikes!

    Awwww…Russkie cat is adorable – those eyes!

    I didn’t know anyone thought Russia was a developing nation – wow.

    Your baby is going to have more onesies than it’ll know what to do with! ;p Good choice to go with neutral colours though – you can’t beat white or gray.
