The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice in Singapore

[Sponsored Post]

Untitled

It’s the week of school holidays! Still not sure where to bring your kids to or haven’t started planning? I would totally recommend Disney On Ice! The Wonderful World of Disney on Ice in here in Singapore and runs from 15 – 19 March 2017 for 10 performances at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Don’t miss it!

My boys caught their first Disney On Ice performance this week! They have been so excited and have been asking me to bring them to the show after watching the advertisements on TV. Big thanks to the team at Disney on Ice, the boys are now able to make their wishes come true!

They have been so excited about it and kept asking me every day if that day was the day we were going to […]

Things Jerry Says #30 – Must buy!

Happy 2017 and Happy Chinese New Year to all of you… if you are still reading my blog! I am not blogging as often as I would like to, but today.. i needed to blog this down pronto.

Jerry. He is turning 6 years old in 4 months and he loves reading and spelling (!). Or I think he does because he has been acing his spelling test every single week for 2016 in school. Am so proud of him actually. He can read by himself most of the time, off food labels, street signs and story books so I have also delegated the story book reading to him whenever possible. Makes life so easy for me. I only need to sight the words and make sure he is on the right track and both kids get entertained.

So, while we were in the supermarket today…

Jerry (J): Mummy, the chicken must […]

Things Jerome Says #1

I thought I have done a post on the things Jerome says, but apparently not. I am really tardy to update his progress, but mainly because they are so grown now and so aware of their surroundings (yes, including their pictures appearing on ipads/phones etc). In just 7 days, Jerome turns 4 years old. The speed time flies amazes me sometimes.

SO, needless to say, Jerome is… no longer the blabbering toddler that he is. Just the other day, he told me something camouflaged itself which is why we can’t see it. I forgot what the conversation was about, but I remember stopping myself on my tracks and asking myself if i heard it correctly. I know. I give my kid less credit than he is due.

The kid has grown to be someone cheeky, boisterous, greedy, super lazy (on keeping toys) and on some days, still totally a baby. His […]

Things Jerry Says #29 – Help me with the sticker.

Hello. I’m back here again. My blog has become a forgotten friend, it seems. In between, I have been busy with work (what’s new), training for a trekking trip in Nepal, doing the actual short trekking trip (my first!), training for a Spartan race, and then completing the Spartan race. I came back home today, tired, aching and badly bruised with battles scars to tell a story, but that’s the story for another day.

Amidst all these, my boy has slowly grown in many ways that I seemed to have failed to notice. This evening (while I just got home), he was asking for a piece of paper to draw something, so I opened up his art work box to take the paper only to realised that the box is in a mess. I gave him the paper he needed, and then emptied the box to do some spring cleaning […]

Happy birthday to me.

It’s my birthday again. The last one still felt so recent. I am on leave because I don’t really like to work on my birthday! But I forgot to silent the phone when I went to bed the night before and the day started with the phone beeping non stop from my group chats with greetings from 7am onwards. *goans*

This year, I made plans to visit the TCM (gotta heal my leg fast for Nepal) and plonked myself at Starbucks for a couple of hours to do work (no choice) and waited for hubby to come pick me up to spend the afternoon together and have dinner. It was just that – simple.

Amongst the simple things, there is one particular incident that I really wanted to remember and put it down on the blog.

Jerry bought me his first present with his own money and drew me a surprise card. 

Last […]

Conversations with the husband #17 – Just telling you only.

It’s been more than a year since I wrote about a conversation with the husband. It is not that the conversations are not happening, more like I am too tired and lazy to write them down. This morning, while we were having breakfast at our dining table…

Me: Hey, I am going to Korea with my colleagues next May. Hmm, the exact dates are 13 – 21 May.
Husband: *shows a smirk*
Me: What?
Husband: Next year, I am getting the AP diver watch.
Me: Huh? That’s so random.
Husband: No ah, just telling you only… (laughs). My trip is happening in 2 weeks and I haven’t even plan yet. You already telling me that you are going Korea next year.
Me: HAHAHHAHAA. The air ticket got promotion!

Although he didn’t say anything out, I am PRETTY SURE that he is thinking in his mind, AGAIN?!

Oh, Oh, I suddenly remember about this conversation earlier this year where

Shape Run 2016 X Skechers – 1.8KM Family Run done!

[Sponsored]

Hello! It’s been a while since I last sat myself down to blog. Life’s been busy – travels, work, and I recently picked up brush calligraphy and the piano! I hope to blog about all that soon, so do check back ok? I am still living life to the fullest and clocking in all sorts of experiences and it’s been pretty awesome so far.

Last week, the Choo Family was in the Shape Run! The kids were all psyched with the race ever since they received their new Skechers shoes some weeks back from the Skechers store in Ngee Ann City

    Conversations with the husband #18 – My wife is a fight stewardess.

Conversations with the husband #18 – My wife is a fight stewardess.

This conversation happened earlier this year, when I was updating the husband about my travel plans. It was early January and we just got back from a 3 day holiday in Macau. It was a surprise birthday holiday that the husband knew nothing about till 48hrs before flight time. I wish I could keep the surprise till we reach the airport but unfortunately, it is not very possible with kids in the picture. There are logistics to shift them in with the gramps before the trip happens and packing their stay over bag would be a huge giveaway. Nonetheless, the husband was *still* surprised.

So, immediately after the Macau trip, while I was packing for my Korea trip that’s happening in a matter of hours then..

Me: Oh, I forgot to tell you that I am travelling to bangkok in March or April.
Husb: Huh? Again?
Me: Err.. ya..
Husb: You just came back […]

Keeping Slim with Absolute Slimming

[Sponsored Post]

Some months ago, I blogged about my journey with Absolute Slimming. I lost 4kg in a month and go read my review if you haven’t already done so! Warning though, unsightly fats in pictures might make you vomit.

I was super thrilled with the results obviously. It gave me renewed confidence, and a bigger wardrobe because I was no longer struggling to fit in my old clothes and I could wear *almost* everything I wanted.

2 months on and 3 holiday trips, I continued treatment with Absolute Slimming. After all, holidays, good food and the waistline don’t go well together. The good news is, due to the increased metabolism from the first round of treatment, I only put on about 1kg after holidaying for almost a month. Not much rebound on the weight loss.

So, I went through 8 more treatment sessions of the same drill – watching what I eat, doing cupping therapy […]

My Homemade Mee Hoon Kueh.

I haven’t done a food post in a long, long while! I spent the weekend was cooking at home so I thought, why not share it?

I don’t cook very often. The hubby much prefers to eat out because it is a lot faster and fuss free. He doesn’t get a tired wife or a dirty kitchen that needs cleaning thereafter so it is perfect for the OCD him. I honestly prefer home-cooked, healthy meals so I try to cook whenever I can.

So, presenting my (self proclaimed) awesome mee hoon kueh!

Looks yummy anot? It is actually a really simple dish to cook, but prepping it takes a bit of time. While I was cooking this, I got reminded of a mee hoon kueh “party” that I had some time ago where my friends were over at my place learning how to cook this… and I am going to share the […]
