Creating More Space in Our Living Room

Every year during this period I tend to become a little lazy at work and want to do something new around the house. It has been awhile since I did some home improvement and since there’s the Christmas party with family coming, and the Chinese New Year shortly after, I decided to do some “magic” around our living room. We …

My Little Photographers at KidZania Canon Imaging Academy

The Mummy loves photography and has been a supporter for Canon cameras for a long time now. The girls have been the subject of Mummy’s shooting obsession since the day they entered into her life.

#26hourswithJen – An Extended Weekend Staycation in Heart of Orchard Road

Forget about fixed check-in and check-out time, we all know we hated this when we book our hotels room in Singapore for staycation. Why confine to only checking-in after 2pm and checking-out before 11am? We don’t even get to enjoy a full 24-hour stay in the hotel we are paying for. When Jen shares about their latest stay package at …

Our Playrooms at Home

Since we moved into our new home in 2012, we’ve done well, nothing much to it. Just that the amount of things increase almost too quickly, and we did some reconfiguration a few times since.

A letter to the 20 year old me

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 high as I could. There …

Lela the Baby Gum Soother

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 the deer. Comparing the two …

Baby Zara’s first staycation at Rendezvous Hotel Singapore

To celebrate the Husband’s birthday, I booked a staycation for us and since Zara has never tried swimming yet, I thought this would be a good chance to let her try floating and kicking inside a bathtub. This was a super last minute decision and I only started searching for an ideal hotel 2 nights before the planned check-in. After …

Visit to the Singapore River Safari

On Christmas Eve, we brought our girls to check out the River Safari. Thanks to corporate pass from Ayah’s work place we get to go for free! Trips like this should be made compulsory at least twice a year just because it is so fun and educational for the girls. Though they may not remember them when they grow up, …

How much would you pay for a ride home on a heavy downpour night with your kids in tow?

Silly me must be too idealistic thinking we could easily get …

One of the common and frequent visited Halal restaurant in Singapore must be Swensen’s. Conveniently located at almost every major malls in Singapore, it is the family restaurant we go to when there isn’t other Halal food joints nearby. Here are our usual orders from their menu… Prawn and Fruit Salad Zesty and healthy! We love the mango dressing that …

Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow!

When you see a kid smiling like that, you know she’s loving it! Ayra simply couldn’t get enough trying out new design at FOX Kids and Baby. Yes! We were back at their City Square Mall store and this time we tried clothes from the Kids sizes cause Ayra can no longer fit well into the 2YR designs. And boy …

Malaysian Delights at PappaRich (Star Vista)

I was delighted to finally get to try the food at PappaRich! She passed by the Parkway Parade outlet so many times, but never got time to step in to try.

The things you buy and never used

Are you the kind of person who buy things on impulse? Or think that you’ll use something when you are buying and then end up never touching it after you bought it home? Well I am one of those that falls quite easily into the trap set by good salesperson. One of those big ticket items I bought and rarely …
