& Juliet The Musical at Marina Bay Sands 
Advisory 16 (Some Mature Content)

Broadway’s Tony-Nominated Smash Hit Musical & JULIET premieres in Asia this September at Sands Theatre.

Janice my wildest and most fun girlfriend invited me to join her at the Red Carpet Gala Premier of The Musical: & Juliet. Oh wait, what happened to Romeo? Where oh where is Romeo? We all read this classic literature famous love story when we were kids in school. This musical has a twist of fate for both Romeo and Juliet as Romeo died and Juliet survived only to be engaged to another young man called Francois in Paris. This musical is proven to be edgy, loud, and fun, despite its classic music soundtracks from Back Street Boys, Katy Perry, Jessie J, Robyn, Kesha, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion, Adam Lambert, NSYNC, Pink, Bon Jovi, and Justin Timberlake and more. You will recognize songs that you have listened to when you were a teenager and sing along for sure. Its amazing how they complied all these classic songs and turned it into an amazing and impressive musical show. 

Just from the title of this musical, you would think that this show is all about Juliet. Yes, she is the main character of this show, but Romeo appeared at the end of set 1, and stole a little lime light as he is one really tall and good looking chap with a really nice voice. Not to forget, May, a character that fell in love with Juliet's fiancée - Francois. He has the most angelic face and voice in this whole musical. Even I fell in love with him. Everyone in this show has a really good voice and you would be so impressed. 

Throughout the whole musical, I found myself dancing (in my seat) and singing along to all the songs they sang. Many others were also dancing in their seats. If we weren't blocking the people sitting behind us, Janice and I would definitely jump up and dance (standing up). It was very uplifting musical, I felt good after watching the show, really speaks about being confident as a woman. Juliet the main character had a really strong voice, but even singers like Angelic the nurse had a really strong voice too. I also love the accents they had, which really made the whole musical even funnier. 

Music by Max Martin
Book by David West Read
Directed by Luke Sheppard
Choreography by Jennifer Weber
Set design by Soutra Gilmour

Produced by Michael Cassel Group in association with MTM/Leyline and presented in Singapore by Base Entertainment Asia.

Italian Dinner at Marina Bay Sands Rooftop Restaurant LAVO


As usual, Janice and I always have dinner together before our musical dates, this time we had dinner at Lavo, an Italian rooftop bar and restaurant at Marina Bay Sands. Not only can you view the whole Singapore's southern waterfront from the top level of Marina Bay Sands, they also served really delicious and affordable Italian Pizza, Pasta, and dessert. My favourite Italian dish is their Truffles Beef Carpaccio, I can finally eat it, after being pregnant back to back with two babies under 2 years old now. We also ordered a Truffles Pizza which was huge, I think 2-3 girls can share their pizza. We both had a Black Stout to enjoy our meal. 




Of course, we needed to take a photo of their famous LAVO Light Box at the entrance of their restaurant. You can see the beautiful view of Singapore from this place.


I carried my Limited Edition Lady Dior Bag today. I love it! Bling Bling! They only had 1 of such bag when I bought this from Dior Singapore.

Cartier don't sell this watch anymore and I've checked, the price of this Cartier Delices De Cartier Rose Gold Women's Watch is now selling at around USD$36,500+. Its polished solid 18k rose gold case and bracelet. Polished solid 18k rose gold fixed bezel set with 58 diamonds. Silver dial with Roman numeral hour markers.

Sara Shantelle Lim Giving Birth to Baby Boy Stefan & Baby Boy Skyler at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore under Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia

Sara Shantelle Lim Giving Birth to 
Baby Boy Stefan & Baby Boy Skyler
at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital
Under Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia


(Baby Stefan 22.3.2022)

(Baby Skyler 1.8.2023)

I gave birth to two baby boys recently at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore. Baby Stefan on 22 March 2022 and Baby Skyler on 1 August 2023. Both of my baby boys were given birth via Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia. Why did I choose to do Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia? So a lot of mothers would choose to go for natural birth, that is actually really brave and amazing. I on the other hand, is totally afraid of pain and trauma, so I choose to go to sleep and wake up with my baby in my arms. Having to choose which birth plan for your pregnancy is totally your personal choice. Do not let society, family, friends or even your husband decide for you, as this is your own body, your own life, your own baby and your own story. 

Back in 2021, I had a baby boy that I couldn't keep at 5 months, and I had no choice but to terminate through a natural birth. It was a very traumatic experience, the whole 5 months. There was a lot of uncertainty, a lot of crying and sadness. The whole tragedy, took a toll on my mental and emotional health. Luckily, I had a lot of family and friends support at that time. Also, we were blessed enough to have another 2 babies, one after another. So I was basically, pregnant for 3 whole years consecutively. That's another whole story to tell next time..

Point is, I've experienced both Natural and Cesarean Birth to be able to know and compare the difference between the two birth plan. 

So for Natural Birth, like some or a few mothers would have done, I had to induce labour with medication. The doctor would stick a pill up the vaginal to trigger labour and contractions. So there are a few medication that doctors may use for inducing labour: oxytocin, pitocin, cervidil, misoprostol, dinoprostone and prepidil as the main ones.

After sticking the pill up into my vaginal, I started to feel pain, very gradually, but the pain pressure was certainly getting stronger and stronger. Contraction has started. The doctors gave me Pethidine injected into my thighs. The whole process of contraction was still very painful for me despite the Pethidine painkillers as I was not allowed to get an Epidural. I'm not sure why, but I think Epidural is only allowed for full term babies. 

After about 12 hours, the pain was so so so strong that I felt my whole body went into shock and extreme pain for like 5 seconds and than the baby was delivered. Because my baby was only 5 months old, he was small and tiny compared to a full term baby, I would have experienced a much less painful and faster and instantaneous birth as he sledded out of my vaginal. I cannot imagine what amount of pain anyone would have to go through if it was a full term baby. I would think that it was at least 100 times more painful that I've experience that day. 

My Natural Birth PAIN Experience was 10/10
(Without Epidural, only with injected Pethidine)
10 Being in Extreme Pain.

What is Pethidine Painkiller?
Pethidine is a synthetic opioid analgesic similar to morphine although less potent and shorter acting. Its analgesic effect usually lasts for 2 to 4 hours. The analgesic effect occurs after about 10 minutes following parenteral administration.

How long does pethidine injection last?
Pethidine injections in labour

It takes about 20 minutes to work after the injection. The effects last between 2 and 4 hours, so would not be recommended if you're getting close to the pushing (second) stage of labour.

How is pethidine injection given?
DBL Pethidine Hydrochloride Injection can be given via the following routes of administration: intramuscular, subcutaneous, slow intravenous bolus injection, intravenous infusion and patient-controlled analgesia (PCA).

What are the side effects of pethidine injection?
Other side effects are similar to other opioids, and include:
constipation.
headache or dizziness.
fatigue or drowsiness (especially soon after taking a dose)
loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting.

Birth of Baby Stefan
22 March 20222


Fast forward to 2022, I was blessed enough to give birth to Baby Stefan at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital SingaporeUnder Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia.

Why did I choose to give birth at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore?

Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital Singapore would have been considered one of the most newly built hospital in Singapore, and I wanted to be comfortable to stay in a new delivery suite room. I also feel comforted to know that all their hospital rooms and equipment would have been the most updated. Also, I would think that they would have the latest technology, since it was a new hospital. 

Which OBGYN Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Doctor did I choose with Give Birth with?

I chose to give birth with Doctor Wendy Teo at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital. Reason was because I knew I wanted to do a Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia, and I have quite a few family and friends that went to her that also did a C section procedure with her. They only have great reviews about her skills and professionalism. 

Doctor Wendy Teo is also known to be very calm and motherly, hence you would feel safe and relax with her. I also felt more comfortable with a Female Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Doctor. On top of that, I also wanted a doctor who was not too young and not too old. If the doctor was too young, I would worry if he or she would have little and minimum experience in cutting up people. If the doctor was too old, I would worry if the doctor would have eye side problems, like Presbyopia , or nearsightedness, is a common refractive error that affects older adults, usually starting around age 45.

If you do a Natural Birth or a C-section using Local Anesthesia (you are awake during the C-section), your husband would be allowed to enter the birth room with you to witness the beauty of your birth. So yea, my cousin did 2 C sections with Dr Wendy Teo with local Anesthesia and her husband managed to go into the operating theatre to witness the cutting of her C-section. In his words, Doctor Wendy Teo's hands were really stable and she did a very quick cut. I feel comforted to know that someone I know has seen her skills 1st hand, twice (2 births). And he so confidently said that she was really skillful. There was no hesitation or uncertainty at all when she did the C-section. 

Local Anaesthesia involves numbing an area of the body using a type of medicine called a local anaesthetic. These medicines can be used to treat painful conditions, prevent pain during a procedure or operation, or relieve pain after surgery.

Why did I choose to Give Birth under Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia?

I chose to give birth to my babies under Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia because I wanted to not go through the trauma and pain anymore. I did not want to experience the slow and gradual pain that builds up slowly through contraction. Nor did I wanted to psych myself to go through the PUSH and PULL of the baby out of my vaginal. I just wanted the quick and immediate SLEEP AND WAKE UP with baby in my arms

Even just getting push into the operating theatre, I was so anxious and nervous that my body and legs were shaking, I was literally shivering. It might be due to the cold, but certainly, I was freaking out, both times. You would think that if you have done it 1 time before, you would be less scared the 2nd time. No.... I was scared both times. Then again, my pain tolerance is low. My mental capacity for pain is also really poor. I was not ready to put up with pain, at all. Hence, I chose General Anesthesia.

What is General Anesthesia?

General Anesthesia brings on a sleep-like state with the use of a combination of medicines. The medicines, known as anesthetics, are given before and during surgery or other medical procedures. General anesthesia usually uses a combination of intravenous medicines and inhaled gasses.

Birth of Baby Skyler
1 August 2023


 





Is it Painful after you wake up from Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia?

So the main and most important question is, is it Painful after you wake up from Selective Cesarean Birth & Selective General Anesthesia? My answer would be yes and no, but you can control the pain. The amount of pain you feel after you wake up from the C-section can be easily controlled by the amount of painkillers your Anesthetist Doctor give you. Hence, if you feel very pain, then just ask for more painkillers. 

So overall, I would say, choosing C-section birth is much Less Traumatic and much Less Painful for me. I was given 3 different types of pain killers to manage my pain: Tramadol, Arcoxia and Panadeine. All these 3 painkillers have little side effects for breastfeeding. So I was able to breastfeed as per normal like any other mothers. I also think that the start of breastfeeding to trigger the Colostrum is really painful too. I was glad that I was on the painkillers, if not it might be even more painful. With all the massage and squeezing of the breast to trigger your 1st drop of milk is painful!

My Selective Cesarean Birth with General Anesthesia PAIN Experience was 6/10
(
General Anesthesia GA - Put to Sleep for the C-section)
10 Being in Extreme Pain.

What is tramadol used to treat for?
Tramadol is an opioid medicine used for the short-term relief of moderate to severe pain. It is not usually recommended for the treatment of chronic (long-term) pain. Tramadol is only available with a prescription from your doctor.

Is tramadol a strong painkiller?
Tramadol is a strong painkiller from a group of medicines called opiates, or narcotics. It's used to treat moderate to severe pain, for example after an operation or a serious injury. If you have long term pain, your doctor may also prescribe it if weaker painkillers no longer work.

Is ARCOXIA a good painkiller?
ARCOXIA relieves pain and inflammation with less risk of stomach ulcers compared to NSAIDs. However taking aspirin with ARCOXIA may reverse this benefit (see Before you take ARCOXIA, Taking Other Medicines). In clinical studies, the risk of developing ulcers on ARCOXIA was lower than with NSAIDs.

What is Panadeine?
Panadeine provides effective temporary relief from strong pain and discomfort associated with headache, muscle pain, period pain, arthritis, neuralgia, migraine headache, cold & flu, tension headache, back pain and toothache. Panadeine also reduces fever. Panadeine contains paracetamol and codeine phosphate.

Is Panadeine and Paracetamol different?
Panadeine – Contains the same 500mg of Paracetamol that is in panadol but with an additional 8mg of codeine phosphate. Codeine is from the opiate/narcotic family, with the strength of approximately 17% of morphine. In fact, a small amount of codeine actually converts into morphine when metabolised within the body.

How Many Cesarean Birth can a mother go through in Singapore?

Many mothers like myself always wonder, how many Cesarean Birth procedures can a woman go through? Because, some of us might want to have many many more babies.. I always heard and thought a woman can only go through maybe 3 C-sections in a lifetime. But no, I was wrong. When I asked my Obstetrician Doctor Wendy Teo, how many Cesarean Birth procedures can a woman have? Doctor Wendy Teo said, she as personally done 5 Cesarean Birth procedures on 1 of her patients. I'm really glad to hear that, because I hope to one day, I will have more children too. 

When can I get pregnant again After my Cesarean Birth?

A lot of mothers also wonder, how soon can they get pregnant again after a Cesarean Birth? I think maybe every doctor and mothers would be different. But based on my age, and my personal experience and doctors' advice was: I should only try to have another baby again after 6 months of my 1st Cesarean Birth. And my doctor told me to wait for 1 year before I try to have another baby again after my 2nd Cesarean Birth. 

I hope my personal birth story would have helped you to make a clearer and better decision for your own birth experience. Cheers to all mothers out there! 

It does not matter which method you choose to bring your baby out into this world. 

What matters most is HOW WELL YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR BABY after he/she is BORN.

LOVE YOURSELF
LOVE YOUR KIDS
LOVE YOUR FAMILY

(Sara Shantelle Lim @SaraShantelleLim with Birkin 35 Bag)

If you like Chinese Asian dishes, Chinoiserie at Marina Bay Sands is a must try. It is designed in a very modern way, unlike other Chinese restaurants, almost looked a little westernized or French inside. I would believed that it is designed in this manner to promote their mixed of Fusion Chinese food. 

All their food nicely plated with flowers and chocolates really impresses me visually. It smells good, looks good, and taste good too. Truly one of the nicer fine dining restaurants that you would want to visit again.

Hermes Birkin 35 Bag
https://www.hermes.com/sg


Heritage Leather

The Birkin is available in a rare heritage leather with unique character. Entirely vegetable-tanned natural cowhide has an exceptionally transparent finish that gains a patina and becomes even more beautiful over time. Smooth or grained, this leather in a natural shade emphasizes the Birkin’s clean lines and will appeal to connoisseurs.

Birkin 3-en-1

Good things come in threes with the Birkin! The famous tote hold all becomes effortlessly light with a single, swift gesture. One: a canvas clutch topped with the emblematic leather flap. Two: a leather tote with side straps and turn lock. And three: clutch and tote together recreate the eternal Birkin.

How much are Birkin 35 2023 from?

2023 Hermès Bag Outlook: What's Trending with Collectors ...
Crocodile Birkin 35

In Crocodile and Alligator, the Birkin 35 is rebounding as well, jumping nearly 28% in the first quarter of 2023 to an average auction price of nearly $43,000.

Can a Birkin 35 hold a laptop?

The bag measures 35 by 25 by 18 cm, which is large enough to accommodate many popular laptop models.


Is a Birkin or Kelly more expensive?

The Birkin handbag does tend to be a little bit more expensive than a Kelly bag. This does depend on a lot of factors, like the leather, colour, hardware and the year of production of the bag. The great thing about either of these bags is that they are both solid investments.

Is there a waitlist for Birkin?

How To Buy An Hermès Bag: Vogue's Ultimate Guide | British Vogue
How long is the waiting list for a Birkin bag? The million dollar question. The reality is, waiting lists at Hermès stores no longer exist. Demand for both styles outstrips supply, meaning that stock varies from store to store.

How long will a Birkin last?

Named after Jane Birkin after she inspired its design on a flight from London to Paris in 1984, the Hermès Birkin is now one of the most quintessential accessories ever to be created. With proper love and care, your relationship with it is one that can last a lifetime - or more.

Who owns the most Birkin bags?
Jamie Chua from Singapore

Jamie Chua is the owner of the biggest known collection of Birkin bags. Chua is a famous YouTuber and socialite from Singapore, who is known to have over 200 Hermès bags, many of which are Birkins. Many would assume that Kim Kardashian owns the most Birkin bags, but she “only” owns 30 Birkins.

(@SaraShantelleLim & Kim Lim & Jamie Chua)

Should I buy a Birkin as an investment?

The rarity of the Birkin, and also the brand's Kelly bags, is one of the reasons they are so widely coveted. Annual price hikes – the start of 2023 saw an 8-10 per cent increase across Birkin and Kelly styles – mean the bags are naturally an investment if they are bought with a long-term view in mind.

Perfect for The Collector

As most can tell, Hermes bags are not just lovely and exquisite to view, they are also an ideal item that will gain in value over the years. Made with expert craftsmanship and quality materials, either the Kelly bag or the Birkin bag is a must-have for any collector of fine fashion.

How big is a Birkin 35?
Size Guide: The Hermès Birkin - The Vault

An ample size, the trapeze-bodied Birkin 35 measures 14” W x 10” H x 7” D and has a 4” handle drop. The Birkin 35 bag can be carried on the forearm or by hand. It can hold a lot, including a small water bottle, keys, wallet, phone, makeup bag, and a book.

How do you authenticate a Birkin 35?
How to Authenticate a Hermes Bag - 7 Steps to Spot a Fake
7-step Authenticity Check on an Hermes Birkin or Kelly Bag

Examine the bag's shape and proportions.
Check the size and measurements.
Inspect material choice and quality.
Analyze the stitching pattern.
Look at the hardware.
Confirm the date stamp.
Check the brand stamp.

Is a Birkin a better investment than gold?

A new study finds that purchasing a Birkin bag is a less risky investment than buying gold or entering the stock market.

How to buy Hermès Birkin in Singapore?
Hermes Birkin In Singapore: Where To Buy?

You can visit the Hermes store in Orchard Road, which is the main shopping district in Singapore. You can also find Hermes Birkin at Tangs Orchard, a high-end department store in Singapore. Alternatively, you can purchase Hermes Birkin online from one of the many online retailers that sell luxury items.

How many Birkin bags are made a year?
12,000 Birkin bags

Hermès is an expert in exclusivity. With the world clamouring for Birkins, you'd forgive the brand for ramping up production. Instead, the fashion house barely scratches the surface, producing approximately 12,000 Birkin bags a year. Not only that, but Hermès boutiques are notoriously picky with their clientele.

Why are Birkin bags so expensive?

Its reputation for scarcity and limited availability sets the Birkin bag apart. Hermès carefully controls the production and distribution of Birkin bags, making them highly exclusive and difficult to obtain.
