Peter Pan – The Neverending Story

I brought the kids to watch the Peter Pan, The Neverending Story musical some weeks back. It isn’t the kids’ first experience in a theatre setting (read: Junior Claus’ experience), and Jerry has been a lot more plays/musicals prior to this. But, it is definitely the only one with both pyrotechnics and acrobatic acts involved.

I probably didn’t do a good job of prepping them with the storyline before hand. I did try to let them watch some Peter Pan cartoon from youtube but they were more interested in the Frozen theme songs (IKR!!) and Transformers instead. That said, I think they both did a very good job in sitting through the entire musical, especially since its beyond their age.

I really should take more pictures with the boys. Sadly, I don’t […]

New Year’s Eve (NYE).

What were you doing? Partying at some happening countdown?

I didn’t plan for anything at all. Not until that afternoon when Jerry kept asking for Gorgor Issac. He has been asking for him non stop! He somehow likes to invite people to our house so he is always asking if who who who is coming to our house. So I sent a text to Irene and they didn’t have anything planned and I invited them over to spend the evening together with my kids, and maybe have dinner together.

It’s too late to grab any proper food by then and the husband said he didn’t want pizzas so the fastest option was hot pot. A trip to the supermarket will do!

Not too shabby right? I managed to grab all that I need and quickly prepped the ingredients quickly before Irene showed up. In between all that, the stars somehow […]

Browtisan Eyebrow Embroidery Touch Up Experience

About 2 months ago, I took a leap of faith and went for eyebrow embroidery. Very honestly, while I was very sure that I wanted to do something with my uneven brows, I wasn’t sure if I could survive the next few years living my decision. Although eyebrow embroidery is semi-permanent, I was still scared. Scared because I have never done anything to my face before and I don’t really know what suits me best.

Thankfully, I got mine done at Browtisan and Coco, who is chief creative officer at Browtisan is one of the best in the industry. I am loving my brows everyday, and it saves me so much time!

So, 1 month after the eyebrow embroidery, I was supposed to head back for a touch-up. The touch-up is complimentary and part of the eyebrow embroidery package. In fact, there are 2 touch-ups […]

Browtisan Eyelash Extensions

You might have read about my eyebrow embroidery done at Browtisan. I am still loving my eyebrows after 1.5 months and I have gone for a mandatory (and complimentary) touch up recently and will blog about that soon. Today, I am going to share about my eyelash extensions. This isn’t exactly a sponsored post. I am not required to blog about the eyelashes, but I would because I love, love, love how natural it looks and I am driven to share this with you guys. I have seen how some lash extensions looks horribly wrong and unnatural on others. Everyone should be doing proper lash extensions that makes it look like the real thing. So, here’s a picture of me without my eye extensions. You see, I have a inner eyelid that somewhat retracts my lashes when I open my eyes, making it look like […]

Jerome goes to the market!

It’s going to be a picture spam of Jerome heading to the market with me while I was solo parenting some weeks back, more for the benefit of the husband who missed all these.

I had to do the school run every morning to bring Jerry to school. The problem is, I also have to lug Jerome wherever I go, so this is the sight every other morning.

Jerry’s school is actually near my mum’s place and not mine, so I shifted into my mum’s place (everyone is away travelling) to save myself from driving the 2 kids to and fro everyday.  Saved me a lot of time actually, but of cos, I miss the comfort of lounging in my own place.

Jerome runs to the playground to have some fun while Jerry is being dropped off every morning. He sure loves the playground.. but not so much […]

Love Confessions on Live Great TV.

Today, I am going to share a video! It’s titled “Love Confessions Episode 3″ and it’s done for Live Great TV. It features my little family, together with the family of another mummy blogger, Maggie Quek. In it, my husband and me answers some questions about parenting, and there is a kids’ interview too and hear what Jerry has to say!

In the year 2014, one of my goals for the blog was to start doing video content. Why, you might ask. Because truth is, I ALWAYS struggled with talking. I used to have stage fright and over the years, I very consciously try to overcome that. I am just simply too conscious about myself talking to the point that it causes my tongue to be tight and I can’t talk properly. But this only happens when there is a crowd, a camera pointing at me, or when I am […]

Happy 2015!

Happy New Year! It’s the first day of 2015 and I can’t believe 2014 is gone, just. like. that.

2014 hasn’t really been an amazing year, but it is good enough. It is a year of survival. Whatever downs I had, I believe it was to make me stronger. I am thankful for all that has happened because I gained experience, I gained friendships, I grew stronger, and I challenged myself more in 2014 and learnt a lot more new things. I ended 2014 feeling wonderful and happy.

Here’s a few significant ones.

Work wise, I changed my role yet again at work, survived through months of having to face a really toxic person and got myself certified in something that I have always wanted to. I am not sure if the new portfolio is something that I want to continue growing in yet, but for now, I know I have a […]

Canon Family Bloggers Photo Shoot Out @ Sentosa Singapore

When I first gotten the invitation for the Canon Family Bloggers Photo Shoot out, I just had to agree! I love taking photos! Do I really need to mention this especially since there are so many pieces ‘evidence’ on my blog? Friends would know that I’m never without my camera in my bag and I just love snapping away, so how to reject right?

Besides, Sentosa with my family sounds like an enjoyable weekend to look forward to…AND, my fellow M.I.C.E mommies would be there too!

We got to choose our favourite Canon camera to use, and I chose the new PowerShot G1X Mark II. I have heard great things about the camera and can’t wait to try it! All pictures in this post are taken with the camera, unless otherwise stated! Gotta mention that they are all unedited as well!


I didn’t […]

M.I.C.E Christmas Giveaway 2014 (Part 3)!

Hello!  It’s FOUR days to Christmas!

Are you excited? Have you done all the Christmas shopping and wrapped all the presents? Honestly, I haven’t done anything yet. The past 3 weeks of solo parenting rendered me nothing but the lifestyle of a maid + mother. It’s physically draining to care for 2 kids alone. But the good thing is, I have already bought most of my presents way back in Sept/Oct because I absolutely hate to throng the Christmas crowds and battle the super long queues, however festive it feels.

It’s probably time for me to kick into my elf mode and start wrapping those presents today. I have quite a lot to go through!

Don’t worry! You aren’t forgotten because there is 1 more giveaway on the blog for the M.I.C.E Christmas Giveaway 2014! It’s almost coming to an end (Estella has 1 last giveaway in 2 days’ […]

My little boy, Jerome.

Today is a day that I rejoice! Finally, the 3 weeks of solo parenting is OVER! The government returned my husband to me last night and even though I was stuck in a class till almost midnight, there is so much to be happy about!

One of them is, of cos, moving back into my own home later today. Can’t wait. I miss my bed!

While the solo parenting has been somewhat tough and extremely tiring, I got to bond a lot with my little kid, Jerome.

He was stuck to me at the hip almost everyday when I was on leave for a week and boy, did we have fun! I also realised that I haven’t had the chance to pay more attention to him as I had with Jerry, but I learned so much more about him during the week we both were stuck together 24/7.

It’s really quite amazing.

I found out […]
