Lunch Date With Daughter – OctoSchool at Fish & Co

With more flexibility in my work schedules come more opportunities for lunch outings with my love ones. Slowly but surely, we are going to try out more places together with my girls. Going to start one new section in The Loving Mum – Kids Dine Out, where we share our little dining dates with you. Starting off with our recent …

Oh so cute! Where did she get the perms?

A question I get ALL the time when Ayra was between 9 to 20 months young. Whenever we bring her out and some aunties will comment how cute her curls are and asked where we brought her for the perm. My eyes were rolled too many times. ¬†When it was long enough, we had her hair tied up most of …

Ayra is THREE! Her first celebration at Playgroup

Three years ago, this little baby popped out of me after more than 20 hours of wait. And now she’s 3! Growing up to become a very fine lady, ever so shy and gentle (except times when she’s lacking in sleep). Her first celebration this year was with her sister’s 1st birthday gathering at home with family. Having two girls …

Things Parents Got To Be Prepared for First Week of Playgroup

It has been almost two weeks since Ayra, our first child, enters Playgroup. This is my first experience as a parent to prepare my girl for school. And I thought it would be easy, and I was wrong. Being the first child, Ayra got a lot of attention from everyone at home. With little exposure to sharing anything or anyone …

Don’t want to say goodbye

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 year, Ayra moved to stay …

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 …

Fruity Goodness for the Kids

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 received a set of fruity …

When Ayra meets Zara – Bonding two children in the family

Getting the elder child to learn and accept a younger sibling is a tricky thing especially when they are two years apart. Zara, our second girl arrived slightly less than a month before our first child, Ayra, turned two. Every parents know the challenges ahead when a child turns two (they don’t name it “terrible two” for nothing). The elder …

Ayra turns two!

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 about them. Baby you’ve grown …

Ayra meets Mr Men and Little Miss at FOX

Before Baby No. 2 arrives, we managed to sneak some time together with Ayra for a fun shopping trip to meet Mr Men and Little Miss at FOX Kids & Baby. These adorable characters come just at the right time as I just started introducing Ayra to their books. She has so far met Little Miss Stubborn, Little Miss Busy, …

Ayra the Fashionista X FOX Kids & Baby

We love shopping! And FOX Kids & Baby is in our top 3 favorite fashion store for Ayra since she was a little baby. Now that she has a full length mirror at home and at Grandparent’s place, she insists on picking her own clothes after bath every day! It is a challenge keeping up with her fashion needs but …

Free Play at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3

When a child sees a playground, it is never possible to walk past it without playing. This goes the same with my girl. This time, it was a playground at the basement of Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3. It is a simple playground, but she managed to spend a good 30 minutes or so running, climbing and riding on the …

The mini bluetooth speaker that got Ayra excited

One day I brought home a little red cylinder and showed it to Ayra. I turned it on, linked it to my mobile phone and started streaming music out from this little red cylinder. Ayra was shocked at first and ran away from it when music came blasting out of it. When I adjusted the volume down and played her …

The Hip-Hop Baby Ayra

I’m curious how little kids always know what to do when given certain objects. How they will imitate what they have seen before. Just show them something for a couple of times (like an action) they immediately picks up the motion and does exactly how you did it. When she got hold of Ayah’s cap, she put it on like …

First full movie at the Cinema!

Today Ayra watched and enjoyed her 1st movie in the cinema! Before that I was trying hard to get her to have a nap before we head out but this girl is too stubborn. Ended up with no nap and we were in GV to catch Despicable Me 2 (otherwise known as “Nana” by the little one). I was prepared …

The Quirky Girl Ayra

Over dinner during our staycation at Sentosa, Ayra was full of funny faces for the camera. Mummy just went trigger happy with her spontaneity and here are some of the funnier shots… The Sexy Pout
