[Taiwan Travels] FunCar 放假 Minsu in Tainan.

We were in Tainan last December. yes, almost a year ago and I am still trying to complete all my posts on that trip. 

I think this will be the second last post of the December 2015 trip as I cover one more interesting minsu we stayed at in Tainan. Well, as this was so long ago,  I am just going to do a photo spam! So beware of a really long photo posts. :)

"Wah!! This is too cool! Just my type of fun"

P.S Look at the really cute vintage cars in the background. No wonder the name "FunCar". However, what goes on updates in the 2nd and 3rd floors is even more amazing!"

Family staycation at Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa

We were due for our annual November trip out to Krabi. A trip much looked forward trip by the boy because of the fun stuff at the hotel that we booked. However, as you would already know, his sudden illness means we rather stay grounded for the time being to keep him from any potential infection.

But, we wanted to ensure we keep J's spirits up and not make it seem like his illness is keeping him from any of our "normal" activities. Hence, we opted for a staycation at Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa mainly because it has all the facilities that the Krabi resort has.

A superb view from our sea-view balcony room at Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa

How we found out J has Juvenile Dermatomyositis

"Der-mer what?"  You hear me say.

I don't even know where to begin because never in my life did I think stories I read about kids and their families battling rare conditions would actually happen to us.

Nail Repair with QueenBee with Giveaway.

I have very brittle nails and it gets worse after I attempt to peel off my gelish nail colour.

Ok. Don't ask me why I peel my gelish off. LOL! I am just lazy la.

That said, it often irritates me whenever my nail cracks because it peels around the tips and it is almost always inevitable that I will need to clip them off.

Clipping my nails off would then mean any nail art and colour will not look as chic.

Then when I was asked to try QueenBEE Secrets' products, I was intrigued by their  "QueenBEE Secrets Repair" as it claims to repair weak fingernails. So, I zeroed in on seeing if it works.

The Special Bear - there's perfection in imperfections

We all live in a multi-racial, multi cultural country. 

Apart from racial, cultural and religious diversity, we will at some point, often or not encounter people who are different from ourselves. 

Different isn't bad. We know that.

[Perth Travel] Our first Airbnb experience with tips for a noob

We love to travel, evidently from the number of flights J has taken since he was born. About 11 times already? I know... kids these days are so lucky right? I also say.

While we love to travel, we always try to keep our travels pocket friendly, and I tend to take my time to research the accommodation that's most suited for us, a family with a young kid (and sometimes with 2 old folks).

When J was younger, we prefer 4 to 5 star establishments that's full service so we get access to food and all other amenities with ease.

Now that he is older, we go for space since we do stay indoors quite a bit while on holiday plus we often pack food back for our meals, more so when we travel with nai nai and grandma.

Shop with Agape Babies

I have always been a customer of Agape Babies even before I gave birth to J.

They have one of the widest range of California Baby products available in Singapore, and as mentioned in one of my previous posts, I get my regular supply of California Baby creams from them.

But don't get misled by their name as they carry so much more at their online store. They have expanded their offerings over the years, and they are one of the retailers of the ever popular Jujube diaper bags. 

They also stock a whole host of other products for older kids like my J.

Here's what we carted out last week.

1) Some Kumon books for J to practice his numbers.
2) Stocked up on extra mosquito patches to keep the the pests away.
3) An extra large tube of suncreen for J since we love to spend time outdoors.
4) Raspberry Leaf tea for me. 

We had something for both the boy and me. Definitely a one stop shop for some of our daily needs.

I am always for online shopping given that I hardly get out to shop so it is great to be able to find large range of products and mummy and child on a single platform.

If you enjoy online shopping as much as I do, and is looking for a online shop that can serve yours and you kids' needs, do hop over to Agape Babies.

From now till 4 October 2016, all my readers will enjoy a 5% discount off purchases with this code "shermeen5%".

Discount is not applicable to milk, diapers, wipes, medela breastpumps, sale and clearance categories.
