Review Just so we are clear, I am not a foodie. I make disastrous food. I don’t enjoy seeking new food experiences as a hobby simply because as a parent of 2 young children, I don’t have the time or energy to hunt down obscure places with food that may or may not be to my kid’s […]

I meant for this post to be out LAST YEAR but hey, better late than never right? ____ Me: What would you like for your birthday, Xan? Xan: Mmm… I dunno. Me: How about the cake? You want a proper cake like your cousin’s or several cupcakes laid out together? Xan: Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Me: Okkkk… What kind? How […]

Xander has been down with fever for a couple of day but he tries to keep his mood up despite the discomfort. You know he is quite ill when he just flops around on the sofa or on our bed. Poor fella. Since Yvie was born, he has developed a habit of giving her a […]

Meet Yvie

Meet Yvie. Don’t let her smile and all that chubby cuteness fool you. This girl is smart, loud and talkative. I think she and I are going to have plenty of tea time gossips when she grows older.

Child Label: Review and Giveaway

February 18th, 2014 / / categories: giveaway, review, school, shopping /

Review For parents of school going kids, one of the 1st few things you do before you pack your child’s school bag is to label everything. Back when I was a kid, my dad would use the permanent marker and write my name and class details on everything and everywhere. He left nothing unmarked, even […]

I originally had no intention to write a Valentine’s Day post because I’m really very unromantic and PDA aka Public Display of Affection is not my thing. So please note that this is not a romantic post. Think of it as a Public Service Announcement for the Clueless. Today is Valentine’s Day and Eastern Valentine’s […]

Praying for a baby

February 12th, 2014 / / categories: babies, family /

This is a typical sight whenever we make the occasional trip to temples to pray for the new year. He would always demand for his own set of joss sticks and mimic whatever we do because he felt that since everybody was doing it, so should he. My mother-in-law has a small modest altar at […]

You know you are about to pop when…

February 8th, 2014 / / categories: family, pregnancy /

The cashcard In-Vehicle Unit seems like a mile away from your steering wheel. Your belly starts to steer the wheel for you.* You can no longer see the front of your car when you drive up a multi storey carpark. You pray for big open parking lots because you cannot weave through cars like Christy Cheung. […]
