Recipe: Buttered French Toast (The Easy Way)

IMG_3682

Before you read on, I just want to announce that I’m a noob cook. I have been trying to vary the tastes and textures of Charley’s food recently. Just the other day I woke up a little earlier trying out baked sweet potato sticks for breakfast and I think she loves it. She finished most of it and got too full for her milk feed after. Thus, in my attempt to search for easy breakfast options, I vividly remember the […]

There’s a virus going around here.

Mid of last week (or earlier), everyone came down with the FFC – Flu, Fever and Cough. It all started with the Papa, then the baby caught it…and she passed it to me. Caring for a baby is a pretty uphill task. Caring for a baby that falls sick? Make that a ‘up-mountain’ task! So, my clingy sticker baby became super glue the moment she felt unwell. Constantly wanted to be carried all the time and refusing to play on […]

Charley is officially ONE!

20140806-235138-85898609.jpg

Entire July went by in a whim! We were so busy that the only place I was updating about me and Charley was on Instagram. We shifted into our new place and Charley celebrated her first birthday at our new place! Definitely what I’ve hope for for her first party! I’ve wanted a cosy place and private/ intimate setting and everything went exactly as planned. Thanks to my girls for helping out. Couldn’t have thanked them enough. So what did […]

A thought and a random update.

20140804-230042-82842772.jpg

I finally understand why a lot of mummy bloggers blogged and stopped halfway. The same thing goes for my mummy friends. Sometimes it’s not about time commitment to go write about something and periodically post it. It is more of thinking about what to write that will keep our little small group of readers interested. Every time I sat in front of my laptop wanting to write about something, I stopped. Will what I write be interesting? Is it a good […]

Out and About – A Day at the Beach

So we woke up when the baby woke – 7am, and we started going about preparing our stuff to go to the beach. It was a Saturday morning and when we took our first step out of the lift, we saw dark clouds and drizzles of rain. Imagine my disappointment! I’ve made her breakfast in the thermos so we could feed her there; we’ve even brought out a portion of newspapers for leisure reading! Undeterred, I told the husband that […]

Hello again!

Sorry for the lack of updates! I cannot tell you how happy I am to be blogging on my laptop again! These past few posts were written using my iPhone and it drives me a little crazy looking at a small screen. So what happened to my trusty macbook pro? This lao-kok-kok laptop of mine was stuck on its start up screen (yup I have been staring at a ‘quarter-eaten-logo’ and that’s it) and thereafter, the battery pack ‘exploded’ and […]

Learning to know, Learning to fall.

Few weeks ago someone rolled her eyes at me and my daughter in the train. She was a working adult, carrying a twisted balloon which has drawings on it. It was a peak hour train ride at 6.00pm. Perhaps she was thinking that my poor baby was eyeing that balloon but really, Charley was just craving for some sort of attention. However, that’s not what I wanted to talk about today. Call me a strict mum but I believe that […]

Onwards we go, 9th month and counting!

Amazingly how just the other day I was deliberating on how your first year party should be like. Today you’re 9 months old! Happy 9th Charley! Not your best photo but one of my best with no totally makeup đŸ˜› It’s quite crazy how I’ve gotten used to having a mini me beside me. Of course, not crazily in love with close to zilch time to doll up myself at all that I’ve often went out with close to no […]

Charley’s solids – Purple Sweet Potato

Okay, I didn’t know that the sweet potato that I’ve bought from our local organic store turns out to be purple. I thought the skin was purple and the flesh orange. Human minds are trained in such a way that if the food comes out in weird colors, the food is weird. Let’s say… Pink bananas? You get my drift. So purple? Let’s just say maybe my baby would like it cause it’s a rainbow color. Nah, my baby is […]

A little note about Carousell.

A little deviation from my baby musings. You know Carousell? Well, to date I’ve managed to sell two items. A dress I’ve never worn before and a North Face bag I’ve previously bought for traveling. I thought that this app was great for selling pre-loved items. It’s like a modernized garang-guni man, only on the social platform. However, one thing I didn’t fancy about the app is that they allowed PO. PO – Pre-Order, is for group buys where people […]
