Birthday celebration.. Part I

Due to the CNY craze period, we decided to do Dora's birthday celebration earlier this year.


It only seems like yesterday when this little girl of mine was a small little potato.. with her trademark noob face. And now this little potato has evolved to a pretty little girl.
Though still quite chor lor for a girly girl but I think this pretty much is in the genes (cough).



My dear little and only princess.. 
I just hope you will continue to be kind and loving like you always are. I'm sure you can see that in the photo of how she treats her little bro. Love God like how He always love us too.
Have a blessed 5th birthday my dear girl.

Bring it on 2017..


2016 had been good to me and I'm very thankful for that.
Christmas was a very significant occasion for me for 2016 as I finally attended church after a 5 year hiatus.
So my resolution for 2017 is very clear: rebuild my relationship with God.
Bring it on 2017..

Busy November month..

This November has been a busy month for me. I guess you can see from the number of blog entry I have. Yes I do use this platform as a space for me to keep my memories down and also to mark down most of the milestones for the kiddos as they grow. Thus I will make sure I will make at least one entry per month.


Sometimes I cannot believe how fast they grow.
Picture taken on 30 Oct 2016.


Anyway here is what kept me busy for November 2016:

Isa - Mr Sporty Wannabe


swimming class on Sat as usual. Due to a Cat 1 warning, lesson was cancelled and coaches spent time to do static training.. which I thought was excellent. I am amazed at how much Isa has grown from a boy who was scared of entering the pool to someone who can dive right into the pool now. He can also swim 3 different kinds of strokes - freestyle, breast and dolphin (a simpler version of butterfly). There is no formal test in his swimming class which is what I like cos I feel sports .. the process is also very important. Just this year.. I suppose coupled with his longer swimming lessons, someone put on a hefty 5 kg and grew at least 5 cm taller. Like wow. dont ask me why. You can only ask me for the swimming instructor contact cos I believe I had already referred to 10 mums and all of them say this group of coaches are very good. Sorry this is a not a sponsored post either. Just my true felt words about this very commitment batch of coach.



Just one of those random Sundays afternoons in which Isa and I had a badminton date. We were fortunate enough to get this court complimentary as a kind neighbour passed on a slot for us. Hope my this eldest boy will be a sporty person just like Papa Ray.

Anyone spotted anything strange about these two pictures? The focus should be on Isa not the pretty girl opposite ok. See if you can spot it. Let me know in the comment.


Dora - Ms Role Play



The big sister at work.. simply gives her lots of opportunity to role play. 



Then she decided to be a dentist.. asking the lil bro to open his mouth and he happily obliged.



Now she become a manicurist for me.

My this princess dearest has been spending alot of time doing role play at home. Maybe a drama queen in the making.. I am not sure. In the meantime I think I just need to be less anal about the mess at the back.

And also Dora has been the kindest and loveliest sister on earth. According to the teachers in school, she spoilt her brother badly. She always want to carry or hug him. And make sure no one bullies him in school as he is the tiniest one in his class. For a 4 year old child, she never fails to amaze me.

Lil I - Mr Cheeky Drama Uncle



Loves Dora's rubber band,


Post halloween party dress up


To Harry Potter


To Mr Cool Man


To Mr Selfie


Papa Ray - out of town = I have been soloparenting for the month!


Mama Connie - busy as bee




my old engine overrun definitely need Young Living Ningxia Red to the rescue.


Taking free GrabCar rides whenever I am not driving.


Hitting executive in YL ranking.

Phew what a month it has been! And while we look forward to a fantastic December ahead. Look out for another giveaway soon! Stay tuned!

Maintaining happiness as a mum.. Episode Travel

Many a times, I guess after being married and after having children, our priorities will shift... I will be writing in other separate posts on how I maintain my own happiness even after being a mum.

And here, one of the many ways of maintaining my own happiness level is to travel. 

I do really have to count my lucky stars for I have been very fortunate to have a good boss who focus a lot on staff welfare.. So far I have been to Malacca, Perth and soon to Hongkong w my colleagues.

And this annual company trip always make people ask me this question," do you bring your family along?" I would happily reply with a sheepishly smile," yes we can. But why would I?" This is like a rare and golden opportunity for me to rest and relax without anyone shouting for like 1000 millions times of "mama!!" I know I will miss smelling the little heads but of course I know I would enjoy myself too.

No kids at all for a couple of days, I'm sure you will be happy to go too, right?

And so.. I'm packed for my trip.. 

So what's your way of maintaining your happiness after you became a mum?

Share with me.

Meanwhile..


"Mama.. Do you really have to go?"

Nested in the hustle and bustle of the city.. 
Here is The Nailist City. Such a apt name.


And as I chit chatting with the owner, she said one of the reason why she shortlisted this place is that she hope to offer a place for shoppers to rest their feet.. and if they can rest, do a manicure and relax with a drink. Wouldn't that make your day? And I was agreeing with her while sipping my tea away..


The nice and cosy counter right in the front of the shop.
Prices are reasonable and do get your updates from their facebook.


The array of nail polish just for the pampering sessions.


Choose your drink on the house.
Such a small service yet tells alot about their kind gesture.


Very easy to locate the shop on Basement 2 of 313 Somerset.
I can't guarantee you a discount if you quote my name but I should guarantee you a complimentary session if you leave a comment*.


And there. My purple #frenchmanicure treat of the day.

Take a look at their nailart (which is option and payable on top of your complimentary session)

And a showcase of few of their amazing nail art:


Alice in Wonderland anyone?


Or an idea for the upcoming Halloween?


Mickey Mouse fan or not doesnt matter, right?
It's just too cute..


HELLO KITTY!!!
ok it's just me I know.


Chevrons is just an everygreen trend. Love the gold hue matching pink.


Or maybe somone is looking for simple yet elegant designs for a dinner or wedding perhaps.


Simple, bold yet loud chrome nails.
