2017 #turning36 Part II


And regardless.. this is always a must for my every staycation.
My best oils..

See I told you.. 
sans kids.. only literally.. both of them were laughing so hard as we were photobombed by a pair of legs.
Small cosy pool but enough to keep the kids busy.


And when was the last time we had a ladies night. 

11/07/2017 Tuesday 

Us at a karaoke session.. and had to bring the princess as made this promise to her many moons ago. 


And look at what this cheeky monster is doing to Papa while he sang.

And that was the end of the celebration.. all well ends well. I went to work very recharged and am ready for the next busy period. Bring it on!

2017 #turning36 Part I

After being a mum.. it's always seems that our own well being will take a back seat. But somehow or rather.. is it because of age, I actually realize taking care of myself is also very important.

Perhaps just perhaps.. I am giving myself excuses. *sinister smile

Anyway here is what I have been doing for the past few days.. week.. or even month of celebration.



07/07/17 Friday
Starting Friday.. my school was closed for some training. Boy was I glad. My mood for celebration came like end of Thursday. The only thing that I was short of was literally jumping off in the air... I had to replace with skipping and hopping to the car after work and make sure that no one watches me from behind.


08/07/17 Sunday
Sunday and me in the legendary birthday chair. Spot me in my new short crop hair and sharper chin. I pray for everyone's good health and I grow wiser spiritually wth His words.



10/07/17 Monday
Staycation!
I dote on myself so much that I booked a staycation for me and my friends.
Alright! I'm getting myself disconnected.. bye for now!

Summary of our 2017 June Holidays..

Is it just me or did this June holidays just ended in a blink of an eye?

Here are what we did..

Kids participating in our church's COOL Camp.


Isa fared quite well for his first 3D2N getaway from us. Though Dora did not stayed overnight but as she skipped her nap, she was a little cranky towards the end of each day.


And kpo me.. helping out at the popcorn booth at the camp carnival. Little girl was just more keen to hang out with me at the booth than with her friends.

 But I was glad that both of them enjoyed themselves alot during the camp. So much so that the camp song is still ringing in my ears.


Isa's swim camp aka rigorous swimming training


This was what Isa did in week 2 and 3 of the holidays. He was placed in yet another camp but this does not require him to stay overnight. I was only very happy to know that he was selected to join in the competitive squad wef from this year but just did not expect him to join in a official competition so fast! Think I am more excited than him. Just imagine he has to swim on an average of 4x a week. This is my little boy on his first 8 am swim class. I am only more than impressed that he did not whine or fuss when he is suppose to wake up like 7am on a non school day. Let's hope he can continue to be discipline in his swimming schedules and also in his school work.

Sick Lil I at home..


My dear littlest was quite sick during the holidays.. I suspect he gotten the bug from the sister plus the weather was horrible. Anyway the bug was quite persistent and so was I. I was very determined to use my Young Living essential oils to help him ease his cough. Boy.. so finally after 3 weeks of consistent oiling, he finally bade bye to the nasty bug that was in him. Email me if you wish to know more about my customized cough blends for they are available for sale.

Art Science Musuem

Love extended weekends when I can actually take leave on a Monday and Tuesday and planned for play dates with my friend and her kid.
And so on the Monday, I braved it out and brought the kids on public transport to Art Science Museum and we went to two exhibitions. 


I love jump shots!


In the Future+ exhibitions..
Out of the several times that I had been to the Art Science Musuem, this has to be one of my favourite. It is definitely kids' friendly. Just that I feel the dim lightings did made me a little dizzy at the end of it. You can be spending about an hour to two in just this exhibition alone.


One of the display panels where you can colour a certain picture and just remember to place it in the scanner so that your picture will appear on the screen! Can you spot the truck with DORA on it?


And so.. since we were near, visiting DC Cafe was a must! And the kids have to dig in the rainbow cheesecake, even before I take pic!


And we definitely had to go Hamleys too! My cute little Dora asked if we could buy this. I almost fainted at the price tag. 
"No mei mei.. maybe another time, ok?"

So in total, including taking public transport, we spend about 7hours outside. Imagine how exhausted I was. 

Downtown east

Be sure to patronize TWO WINGS at downtown east if you are there, I promise you will not just have one serving of their chicken wings.
Be it original, chilli crab or salted egg flavour, all are as delicious. Do look for owner Snyder and mention to him you are recommended by me.




One of the interesting corners of the Orchid Bowling Alley is the miniature bowling alley for kids.
Which kid can resist this?  


This is one of the latest shop that just pop up here. VR games for kids.. how cool is that?
Price was $3 for Dora's and $6 for Isa's. Quite affordable.

Laser Quest at Our Tampines Hub


And finally Isa had a chance to catch up with his classmates. Although it was a merely 2 hours over Laser Quest and dinner, it was good enough! Till our next date.

North East Zonal Swim Meet

This has to be the highlight of the month. All the intensive training are all preparing Isa for this event. And we had to be at the venue at 7 am.. Just imagine how early I had to wake up, even earlier than work. I guess I was lucky as I volunteered and I was assigned to be the time keeper for the event thus I was actually able to know and also understand how difficult it is to run an event. But good thing is that I was also able to witness how determine and strong the kids are, just for the competition!

Imagine one of the best records that I had tallied was 37 seconds for a 50m swim! How incredible was that? 


Just some of the squad members of Sapphire Swordfish.


Isa with his very "demonic" coach KK.
He is actually a very nice chap and I like the way he disciplines the kids for swim.


And hey.. backview of  my swimmer boy!


Just this morning.. on the last day of the June holidays.
So long holidays.. till the next round!

Throwback to 2017 March.. BKK trip with the sis

Throwback in March earlier this year, my sis and I had a girly trip to BKK! It had been such a nice trip.. no kids shouting "Mama~~~" is one thing.. I could also sleep until I woke up naturally. No stress over breakfast as our meal times were all haywired. Who cares right.. a vacation should be this way anyway.

Here are some photos of my trip.. 15 years from the last time I had been to BKK.. suaku or what. And so for a person who has not been there for 15 years..I booked a 4N trip and my sis laughed at me! In the end.. but I was as happy as a lark and my heart is so full .. and legs are so aching..


Day 1 loots..


Day 2 loots..


T Shirts loot..SGD$4 for a piece. how many do you want to get?


Day 3 loots..


Chaktutchak day loots..


This not so cheap tuktuk brought us around and left us stranded at some ulu place.. Thank God for google map. On a empty stomach and 2 lost sheep finally found the Boat Noodle!


One bowl was merely less than SGD1! How many bowls can you eat? But to warn you, this place is not easy to find.


We hit on Hello Kitty cafe by chance. 
It is just in one of mall by Siam Square BTS. Not difficult to find.


Pony Cafe is the one that was difficult to find. But it is walking distance from some BTS station.
To be honest, we did not have an itinerary. We jus had data plan on hand and just google anywhere we wanted to go.


We also went to Asiatique Night Market in which I did not find it that fantastic.
The things they sell are similar to what you can get from any night market with a very jacked up price. 


For only less than SGD$12 a person.. we had steamboat.. for lunch! Haha..


So sad to hear that BKK is not going to have any more street food wef from Dec 2017. I was glad I actually had a chance to still have my fair share before they really (hopefully not) close.


You cannot miss out on this fish maw soup from BKK chinatown!
Who cares about the price. Just eat.


And that was the guy who cooked our noodles for us. Damn nice chaotar smell. I could literally see that his hand was jus hovering above the fire. But he just don't seem to care.


Tip for shopping in Bangkok. Visit Big C the last because the stuff you get from there will definitely overload your luggage weight. Anyway there was free carton boxes outside Big C and so we sealed all our purchases - ready to head back to hotel then to the airport.

Summary of 2017 Feb..



February 2017 had been a busy month for my family and I.
Not only it marks the end of the Lunar New Year, it was also a month of joyous celebration for my family. I shall use pictures to let you skim through what we were busy about.



Just one of the Saturday night when Ray Papa and I brought the kids out for movie and dinner. 
Lots of yummy food this month.


And then spending time with my girls for a birthday celebration for Chr with food and karaoke.. We sang till the crows come home kind of timing. 1 am was the time I set foot home. Been long since I did that.


Steamboat at Jpot on another Saturday night..


Fetching the kids one of the afternoons when I was on half day to run errands.


I had to buy flower petals and guess what is this cheeky one up to. 
Ray papa.. this is for you.

And we have come to the most important event of the month..


Wedding favours part I..


Wedding favours part II..


The ang bao box and the wedding album..


Tadah.. the flower petals..

]

You guess it right.. It is the glorious day of my sister.


Some snippets of the morning..


I love candid shots like these..
