In conversation #3: Rookie Mummy

Image
Looking back at the time when I first became a mummy, I was overwhelmed with how much there was to do, and sometimes lamented at how much our lives have changed. As time went by, I now look back at those times fondly, and certainly wish that time has more mercy on us as the boy is growing up too fast. Today, I have a Victoria Koh on the blog. A first time mummy of only 4 months to a boy, Ryan, who she endearingly calls " Chilli "! Let's hear from her on how she is coping and what advice she is dishing out to other new mummies.

The August Vaby Box - With Giveaway!

Image
I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the August Vaby Box as it had items not only for the little one, but for me as well.  Unlike the July box which was catered for new mummies or mums to be, the good people at Vaby started to customise their boxes according to the recipients' profile. Profile of both the mummy and their kiddos.

The Color Run Singapore 2014

The 3 of us took part in The Color Run Singapore 2014 last Saturday, our first run as a family. While I was not looking forward to the run initially as I was afraid the heat might make the boys (husband included) grouchy, I wanted (on the other hand) at least experience how it feels like to be doused with color along a 5km run.

Enrichment vs New Pre-school

The life of a 2 year old these days are more complicated than what we adults can envisage. Friendships, relationships with their teachers, trouble over the things they want, and over what mummy says they can have, and the list probably goes on and on.  We grown-ups think only we have the worst end of the stick! I guess not. 

Wordless Wednesday: Learning our ABCs

Image
One of the things I wanted to get done this year is to spend time crafting with J. I must admin, other than making customised jewelry, I am not your typical mummy with a flair for arts and craft.  So, I had do quite some research before involving J.  Then I decided, crafting can be a way for the child to learn, and so we started J's home-crafting with alphabets.

Classic Strawberry Shortcake

Image
If you read my blog regularly, you would have figured that I have a strawberry shortcake loving family.  So at times when we need to satisfy that craving, we bake!  I am still not confident enough to attempt a Japanese Strawberry Shortcake with all that complicated steps. So what I did was to use a victorian sponge sandwich cake recipe to create a classic  strawberry shortcake.
