I am not enough.


The Mummy

For the longest time, I thought I am a good mum. I thought I have been doing it right and enough to bring up my girls the right way. I thought I have been managing the whole family life thing right. But I was wrong. I am not enough. I am not patient enough. I […]

Catching Up on The Four Questions Blog Train


The Mummy

One thing about being part of a group of active Mum Bloggers is that one can never be spared from any of these tagging meme or train. Few days after I saw this train going on, I received a message from Cherie to ask if I would like to board this forever-on-going train. Somehow now, […]

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 […]

We are into the counting down by the days now! Am at the remaining 21 days to be exact. And that’s the EDD for Baby No. 2, which by now could be weighing close to 3Kg (was 2.6kg three weeks ago). Things are slowly getting into place at home, except for… [list type=”arrow”] [li]Packing of […]

What’s in my bag?


All Posts, The Mummy

So there’s a linky going on to find out what’s inside the bags of SMBs. So here’s me “exposing” my not so secret stash inside my bag. I carry with me everyday this brown bag from Mango, bought it for CNY and now its my carry-everywhere-everyday-multi-purpose bag. On weekdays these are the things you’ll find […]

The Little Love He Gives


All Posts, The Mummy

We don’t do fanciful dinner dates nor buy expensive gifts. For the 10 years we are together, he showers me with practical things that makes my life better and me happy. Instead of expensive diamond ring for wedding, he gave me a home. Instead of a luxurious honeymoon, he gave me a family. It’s simple […]

Hello Baby No. 2


The Baby No. 2, The Mummy

Drafting of this post started on 15 February 2013 and published only now cause I needed to be sure no. 2 is ready to be revealed. Sometime last year, we decided it is time to give Ayra a younger sibling. It is either now or never. My plan is to get the child bearing part […]

Big Changes to Our Routines


The Mummy

I’ve been working for myself for the past 4 years, then there was no big commitments and no family that I have to provide for. Those were the days when I was younger and powered with limitless energy and gusto. Fast forward two years and things changed. I got married, became a mother, directions and […]

Preparing for Ayra’s 1st Birthday Celebration


Baby Stuff, The Mummy

The countdown clock has started. It’s a month and few days away from Ayra’s first birthday celebration. As we skipped her full month’s celebration, I’m planning to have a not-so-mini party for her 1st. As I was browsing through other mummy’s blog and referencing from friend’s photo albums on Facebook, the panic button is suddenly […]

Growing with my baby girl


The Mummy

Every morning, after her first feed for the day, I’ll let her sleep in bed with me. Today we had a little playtime before she dozed off to continue her daily morning naps. She was sitting up and throwing herself down back into the pillow in her own, wiggling herself into my arms and nudging […]
