Jerome’s 1st swim!

As 2nd time parents, I honestly think that we are tardy in some ways in exposing Jerome. Jerry had his first swim at 5 months, but Jerome only went for his first swim last month when he is 17 months old. While there are many factors that lead to this, the key reason is… having one kid is so much easier to manage, especially with 2 pairs of watchful eyes.

Here’s the truth. We weren’t as confident in bringing 2 kids to the pool by ourselves especially when they both are so young, and basically not easy to handle (i.e. super active). And then, the kids just keep falling sick one after another when the time permits for a pool session so we never got round to it.

We finally did it but on the day we did, I dug out the swimmers that I bought for Jerome, only to […]

Rocking it up the big boy pants with Drypers Drypantz

*Sponsored Post*

I love it when my kids are happy. Their smiles are like a big testimony that I am doing great as a mum, that I’m doing good and making all the right choices for them. As long as my kids are happy and smiling, nothing else really matters to me.

I love seeing my kids’ smiley faces! They are like the brightest sparks in my life and I wish my kids would always be happy. Of cos, there are many factors that contributes to a young child’s happiness. Although not all factors can be within my control as a mum, I would always try to ensure that my kids are being loved, placed in a positive fun environment with loads of play and ensuring that they are always comfortable in both their clothes as well as their diapers. I believe in choosing the best ones possible within my means simply because I don’t have really have an […]

On Prime Time TV with OSIM uShape!

uh.. errm. and so, i have been told (by friends and colleagues) that I am on prime time TV. Honestly, the OSIM uShape commercial has been airing for a couple of days now and I haven’t been able to catch myself on TV at all. Have been coming home late from work late and all, and I’m not really a TV person actually. I knew the commercial will start airing last week but I didn’t expect it to be on prime time tv! #pleasantsurprise

I have been getting whatsapp messages, and facebook messages from the most random of people. Friends who I haven’t contacted in a while saw the commercial and texted me, so I guess its a nice thing to be able to connect with my friends again! At the same time, it is quite an agony at work! A lot of my colleagues have seen the ad, and have been […]

    Celebrating the little men in my life with Pumpkin Patch Kids.

Celebrating the little men in my life with Pumpkin Patch Kids.

Have you guessed who I am talking about? Of cos, I’m talking about Jerry & Jerome. While I haven’t looked, they both have grown so much.

Jerome is almost the same weight as Jerry now (just a few hundred grams difference!), blabbers a lot with a few clearly recognizable words like 水 and neh neh. He can speak a lot more, I caught him a few times saying stuff that blows me off, but at this point in time, my poor brain fails me.  He’s still shorter than Jerry, but I think he will surpass Jerry very soon and is very much his own person. Totally different from Jerry. He adores Jerry and loves to be wherever the brother is, doing whatever Jerry is doing and just being close to him. He even prefers to snuggle next to Jerry in bed, much to Jerry’s wrath who thinks that Didi wants to […]

Fashionista Cherieladie #3

Hey hey! It’s my 3rd fashionista post and honestly, I have had a lot of fun taking pictures of my #ootds and dreaming up outfits. There are days where I totally feel like slacking, especially across stretches of weeks where I constantly am exhausted from work and being sleep deprived, but the mere thought of sharing those outfits with my readers here put some adrenaline in me!

This month, I am a little late with my post and didn’t make it to post on the 1st of the month. I was fire-fighting on my work till 1+ am earlier, and just had my fill of dinner/supper and finally have some time to myself to blog. I really missed my personal laptop quite a bit because I haven’t been doing much on this space. Enough of rant, here’s the outfits for the month of June! I have quite a few new […]

Conversations with the husband #14 – Sleeping Beauty

We woke up bright and early today. It’s a long day ahead, planing a day out at Universal Studio with my mum and my brother and then, attending a wedding dinner tonight. I was the first to wake, followed by Jerry who insist on snuggling with me the moment he opens his eyes. Gonna love these moments because I know they won’t last forever.

I woke the husband and then cheeky Jerry decided to hide under the covers when i attempted to take a picture of him. I keep flicking the covers off only to have him pull it back on to cover his face. This went on for a while and triggered the following conversation.

D: What are you doing?

C: I’m trying to take a picture of my sleeping beauty. Don’t disturb me.

D: Sleeping beauty?! (sounding incredulous)

C: Uh huh.. yar…

D: You mean Sleeping NAUGHTY..

C: Hahahahahahaa. No. My Sleeping Beauty.

Trust the […]

Photography Class with Canon at Fidgets! #myfamilywcanon

About a month ago, the team from Canon Singapore invited the family for a fun day at Fidgets. There were arts and craft classes, and baking classes arranged for the kids but both Jerry & Jerome were kinda too young to be left alone or attend the class so we simply let them loose in Fidgets and have them run around the indoor playground for some fun under our watchful eyes. The adults, we got to learn some photography tips from ex photojournalist, Ah Bob the Jiuhukia (read the end of the entry for the tips!).

It was our first time in Fidgets, simply because it was so far away from us (the other side of the island) and that our weekly schedules are kind of packed with enough activities to keep the kids and us busy. Oh my, the place is HUGE! And I don’t […]

A Blog Train

Last week, I got tagged by my long time blogger friend, Wenmei (one of the first few people I know online!) and I am supposed to answer 4 questions. I haven’t done something so spontaneous in a while. I thought it is quite fun to do something totally random so here goes!

1. What am I working on?

Hmmm. Tough. I am currently working on being a good mum, a good juggler (between work, life, kids, husband, chores and friends), and trying to maintain a blog amidst all that. I don’t normally talk about my work here, so the other thing that I really do spend an effort on is the blog. And regards to that, I am trying to work on making the blog more relevant and helpful to my readers, apart from growing my wealth of precious memories here so any suggestions/feedback that you might have is welcomed! As […]

Things Jerry Says #15 – I will fight the mosquito!

For some strange reason, both my kids  have been attacked by a lot of mosquito bites lately. I am guessing that the area around my mum and mother-in-law’s place is infested with mosquitoes and the kids have been coming home with mosquito bites. I personally hate mosquito bites, they are so itchy and they sometimes can itch up to days and more often than not, they leave a mark behind mostly from scratching, and sometimes, the skin just turns darker at the site of the bite and the legs looks spotted.

Today. Jerry is complaining about the mosquito bites on his legs and I wish I can do something for him (except applying some cream/ointment which frankly, doesn’t quite help) and the conversation goes..

J: Mummy, my leg pain pain!
C: Where?
J: Here! (points and show me)
C: What happened?
J: The mosquito bite me. The mosquito naughty. I want to fight the mosquito.
C: […]

Swimming with Whale Sharks in Oslob, Cebu, Philippines

I am still grappling with the fatigue from the trip and plunging into work right after, but I just. had. to. share. I checked off 1 more item off my bucket list! Woohoo! One down, many more to go and totally looking forward to it.

And yes, you read that right. I SWAM WITH THE SHARKS. And there was 5 of them in total!

That was the sole purpose of my Cebu trip, really. It was an amazing, amazing experience. Probably the most amazing travelling experience I have ever had, the excitement of seeing a really huge giant right before my eyes, the adrenaline of being so close to the largest noncetacean animal in the world and being hit by it accidentally while posing for a picture… just. AWESOME.  

One in a lifetime experience. And I super regret that I didn’t ask to […]
