Resolution for the next 6 weeks

I am due back to the office in six weeks time. So while Jonas is snoozing away on this hot arvo, I thought why not "un-vaccum pack" my pre-pregnancy clothes and see if they all fit.  On hindsight... what was I thinking?! Did i seriously think with 7kg more to lose, I can fit into my favourite frocks and pencil skirts?!

Oh well... without a doubt, i started getting all whiny to Hwa over whatsapp on how fat and ugly I am now.... and what if the 7kg does not want to barge and is here to stay! Kudos to the man who was patient enough to reassure me, and even called me over lunch to provide whatever comfort he could to me.

Anyway... since this is the first time in my life where my BMI says "overweight" , I am pretty anxious to get rid of the extra kilos.... hence I have resolved to start an exercise regime from next week, with the man, provided our plans does not get hijacked by the little terror who till this day still throws us curve balls, when we thought we had him all figured out!

Here's what I think I will do:

1) Run at least 2 times a week. In fact I have started this monday. That's all I could manage for now, but i think it will improve as I go along.


2) Yoga / Pilates at least once a week. I still have my Amore fitness membership watiting to be reactivated.

3) At least 100 crunches everyday. Best thing to do before I take my nap when Jonas is having his.

Are there any other activities you can suggest for time stretched new mummies like me? Care to share?

    My dear, breastfeeding is 600 calories a day. Just limit your food intake can already. And don't eat after 8pm. Guarantee lose even more than 7 kgs. Plus, you're looking after Jonas... that's a lot of calories too! - Lis.

    1. babe... i have stopped breastfeeding... :( BF not quite working out...

  3. Take walks with Jonas in the pram or in the sling. Or better still, sling him and climb the stairs. When you're back, join the running club with us and we'll go running after work together.

  4. Hey Susan, yeah.... was carrying Jonas in a sling today and realise that he can be weights as I do evening walks. Yup... will also defo join you gals on your weekly runs... but must start building up my stamina again.

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.

Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.

At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
