My mum, on the other hand, loves planting and she grows many different types of plants in her small house. My girls had been wanting to try their hands on planting at home after doing so in childcare. So I did …

Being a full-time working mum isn’t exactly the easiest job on earth.

Created Our Own Playhouse

I wanted to get a playhouse for Ayra as she loves watching kids role-playing with their Barbies and dolls on YouTube, but I didn’t want to spend too much money on a solid one that will stand through serious rough playing by toddlers (aka Playmobil). Not sure whether or not Ayra will want to continue playing with a playhouse and …

Mummy’s Amigurumi adventure

Sometime early last year, my hands were itching for some new crafty movement. So I picked up some crocheting books from the library and went shopping for materials at Spotlight… I had done crochet projects before back in school days, and I first picked this up from my Mum. In the past I only made small coin pouches and other …
