A peek into the after work hours of a FTWM


The Mummy

Let’s set the context right before we peek into my after work hours… I am a Full Time Working Mum (FTWM) with a 9am to 6pm job which I enjoy. I do take up freelance gigs when they come to me, from companies and people I adore very much. My no. 1 goes to a full […]

A letter to the 20 year old me


All Posts, The Mummy

Dear 20 year old me, Oh how I missed you so! Yes, that is a super cheesy start line, but really I miss you a lot. The 20yo me was filled with passion and energy, filled with gusto and drive and all I ever wanted was to climb those ladders up up up to as […]

Lela the Baby Gum Soother


All Posts, Baby Stuff, The Baby No. 2

At 5 months, Zara is starting to grab everything within her reach. And no matter what she grab, it is stuffed straight into her mouth. She loves pulling in and out her pacifier and teether to rub her gums. When Ayra was little, she got Sophie the giraffe, and now for Zara, she’s got Lela […]

Baby Zara from 1 to 5 months


The Baby No. 2

Our second precious girl has grown so much over 5 months, from a tiny baby who grew almost double in size from birth in 3 months. She can hardly fit into her elder sister’s clothes from the 6 to 12 months range! She needs lose pants and t-shirts as Zara has got chunky arms and […]

Don’t want to say goodbye


The Baby

When she was just a baby, it was me who find it hard to say goodbye. And at 26 months, Ayra is having the same difficulty to say goodbye when we part. Why is this routine so hard to get used to? When I started going back to working in an office in Feb this […]

Fruity Goodness for the Kids


Kids Activity, The Baby

Ayra is a very picky eater. She prefers the unhealthy snacks like chips, cookies, fried crispy stuff and sweet drinks. I blame us adults for giving in to her requests for food, also because she doesn’t want to eat the proper meals we’ve been trying every day since she was 6 months young. When we […]

Ayra turns two!


The Baby

It was a cosy celebration for Ayra’s second birthday. As Mummy was still doing her confinement, we gathered at home and spent loving time together as a family. We had the cake you picked from Swensen’s and ordered pizzas for dinner. You had fun opening your presents, and we had fun watching you getting excited […]

Welcome Zara our second precious girl!


All Posts, The Baby No. 2

It has been 9 days since the arrival of our no. 2, Zara. She’s such a tiny precious darling, and has been behaving well since the first day. Life at home still needs a little getting used to, trying hard to balance our love and attention between our soon-to-be two-year-old Ayra and Zara. Since the […]

6 days to meeting Baby No. 2
