A little 幸せ💖

Life isnt just a smooth sailing journey.
It is especially stressful for me since October!

But today! I had some free time so I practically did nothing other then lie in my bed with coffee and watching the jyannizu!
Watched 2 episodes of countdown that I missed watching for 2 years. And felt quite happy and energetic after!!

There is just this happiness in Idol Chasing! I am sure not everyone understands.

I cried when I listen to KAT-TUN's 10th year anniversary medley. I still feel sour when I listen to Hey Say Jump's 10th year anniversary medley... all these emotions were penned down in this blog 10 years ago too...

10 YEARS...

What will I become of 10 years later?

Little Dress up Dates

After having a baby... it was almost impossible to have dates!
All down to earth SAHM will know, it's impossible to dress up your baby...
and yourself as well in a short time span of 1 hours before the baby fusses...
without having to leave the baby in lurch for your own vain measures to dress up!
And even more impossible to go out nearby dolled up to just grab coffee for?
For some instagram worthy photos! Ha, maybe sour grapes, but nopes, not possible! *nods*

The first time I truly get away from baby duties was last July...
For a dear friend's wedding lunch, for less then half a day, only 4 hours!

The second time was this March when I had to dye my hair for Japan!
My mum again, came over to take care of my koala bear...

My pretty curls that Sone san did!!
Anyway, hubs and I even had late lunch outside and it was a good 6 hours off time!

The third time was also the last time that was recent, we were out for half a day!
My mother in law offered to help us take care of the koala bear so we date!

Went for lunch and then karaoke!!

I think, as the baby grows older, it gets easier for the care taker.
And I feel less guilty of having help for half a day or so...

Other days where we go on dates with the baby! This was when baby was 1mo!
We went out simply just for dinner at Paragon~

Taiwan holiday! Hahahaha

One of the days, we went to town for dinner and visited Misa!

Then came my birthday! Le hubs took leave from work and we went out strolling!

I lugged the baby with me to pokemon cafe and met up with Nyu-sama~

One of the days when we head to town with my in laws~

Some "taitai" dates, playdate for the kids!

Good rare days of motherhood when I am not tired!
Dressed up and went out for walks, and waited for le hubs to end work!

Valentine's Day date with my boys!

CNY dress up! Cant say it's a date thou... haha!

And and... taadaa! Our recent Japan holiday!

On normal days, there's nothing as near as what I just posted.
It's hectic day with messy hair, loose PJs, dark circles and poor complexion!
Slowly, all self worth and confidence really does drain off as time passes...

Sometimes... I find effort to try and go somewhere in town for weekends.
So I could dress up, make up, doll up and stay connected to the world!
In the life of a SAHM, what people cannot see is that social isolation is real.
My feeble attempt to keep myself sane is to feel confidence thru dolling up :(
Is that too shallow? I dont really care for now, hahaha~

My aim is to stay sane and happy while sahm-hood last!
I am happy that I might be able to find back some self-values very soon!

Baby Food Stage 1 ・離乳食初期

Ello Hello!!! *dust blog*

I've been wanting to record my baby's growth here but...
A SAHM with no helper basically has no luxury time to even poo in peace.
Less say, penning down thoughts!
So, after much procrastination, le baby is already 14months old!
And his journey into solid food has already passed by 9months!
To summarise it all, I think it should be categorised into a few parts:

First Foods: Puree Stage

Sho-chan's first ever food out of milk is very lightly mixed veggie rice cereal!
And it is so diluted that we can almost feed him through a bottle! Haha!
He was barely 4months old that day he had it and reacted fine.
In Japan, most mama start their babies on solid food from 4mo.
However, in the SG community, many mums are skeptical about it...
As for me, my heart and soul is on Japan so.... you know~ hahahaha!
But a bigger part of deciding factor is that he seems already ready for it as well!
He was able to open his mouth to spoon, support his head straight
And also his milk feeds are no longer filling him up enough to last more then 2hrs!
So I read that these are signs, but that was the only time I tried cereal.
Solely because I didnt want to break his routine since 2 weeks later we're travelling.

Le baby was a week to 5months old when we sat him into our Ikea highchair!
I started him off puree one meal a day once we came back from Taiwan!

First ever meal substituting one milk feed!! *milestone*
Starting with a total of 4 or 5 teaspoons of puree per day~
He had the same veggie rice cereal but this time, a little thicker.
Some Gerber's carrot puree we got from SQ flight (haha, very kiam siap parents)
And Pigeon's baby mugi (roasted wheat) tea I got from Taiwan, sho loves it!
Speaking of which, this is what SG mums in general cannot accept too~
But why? They don't even know the benefits of Mugi Tea you see!
Thou it's named TEA but it's for baby consumption so it is totally caffeine free!
And it helps with constipation which is a nightmare for most new mums!!
I wished more SG mums becomes acceptive of baby teas~ it's good!
We're currently on Wakodo's baby mugi tea and it's a part of sho's regular diet~

After almost a week's of commercial purees, I felt like I needed to change it!
Commercial purees are good as starters and convenient for travel~
But if my baby's diet comprises fully of them, it does make me wonder...
Just how much avoidable chemicals gets into his little tummy yo!
So... I did some reading online and decided to mass make my own puree!

Blend, cube and freeze them!
Each cube is approximately 3 teaspoons so I just have to take it out and warm when needed!
I know the process of blending and freezing causes nutrients losses~
But however it may be, it is gonna be ever healthier then commercial ones.
And the best part is the variety of food my baby could try in a month!
Yes, that lot of stuffs lasted me for a good whole month! I was so happy :)
And there suddenly was so much accomplishment filled up in me!
First time I felt like I'm doing it right in motherhood!

Gradually, increasing the quantity and it became 2 feeds by the 3rd week~
I follow the rule of introducing new food one by one on a 2 day gap to test for allergy.
We are lucky that sho-chan is allergy to basically nothing!
Here's a couple of combination I do...

Yes, I made him fruit juices too! Hehe

On a side note, I am sad that this plate broke :(
This was bought specially for him while I shopped for household items...
When he is still in my tummy! Haha

And did he like his first foods? YESSSSS!

The only food he showed strong dislike is avocado! Haha well, yucks!
Both me and hubs thinks it sucks too! So it's ok baby... we understand! Haha!

His puree days didnt last that long... only for a month!
One of the reason being, he has many teeth at 6months old for stage 2 food.
And I thought one month is a good enough transition period...
For his little tummy to get use to solid food instead of only liquid intakes.
Also it is a painstaking process to churn out your very self made purees!
Especially clearing up of the kitchen mess is... erm... annoying haha!

So we took him to stage 2 of baby food that is porridge and small chunks veggie!
Oh and! SNACKS! yay to baby biscuits!!

Okays! 1:25am time to sleep before baby wakes for milk!
I think the next post is gonna be a whole lot longwinded then this! Wahaha!

Going to Japan!!

Yesss!!! We are going to Japan!
First time as a family of 3! Challenge accepted!!

So the first thing is to... SHOP FOR WINTER CLOTHES!
We are going on the 1st week of april for sakura, so its not exactly winter but!
For the baby, warmer is better then cold so shop yui shoppppp!
And me being me, it has to be taobao! Hehe! I am pleased with my buy!
Spent $200 inlcusive of shipping for a total of 21 baby items for the cold~
5 tops, 4 pants, 3 jumpsuits, 1 fur coat, 5 sock, 1 uggs, legging & beanie!

Also got a light weight bone looking stroller for convenience!
I dont really think we could enjoy if we are gonna babywear him thru-out~
And I strongly believe we are still responsible parents even if we dont!
So I guess a stroller could really save our holiday, let everyone stay sane!!
Guess what, 2 mac spicy meal upsized is even more expensive than it!!
Wahahahahaha!! Self proclaimed Taobao Queen here!
Wait till I do a post on how many stuffs in my new home came from taobao lol!


Ok, baby = settled


For me, I am bringing old clothes.
But I did spent $20 having a new pair of shoe and new coat in that photo!
Totally love the colour! And its knitted so it would fit spring weather just nice!

Baby's uggs and my new shoe!!

I got my hair dyed for the trip!!! Ashy tone without bleaching!
Want to look decently pretty even thou fat now mother of a baby :(
So, I guess the $144 on hair is well spent cause I feeeeeel good!!!

Hair done at Bump Hair Design River Valley by Manager Stylist Sone san.
He is a very friendly and warm young Japanese imo! And a little humorous!
I love the whole ambience, service and of course the end colour of my hair!!

Colour under sunlight!


Okaysss, me = settled!


Now, le hubs manages himself~ (he so picky I cannot help him plan!)
So, I would start planning TO BRING LIST! It's one of the most fufilling part!
Before each trip, I would always mentally picture what I need to bring and note it.
This time round, I had it down over a couple of days when the baby naps~
And yesterday, I found some really good chance (having a baby at home, everything now is about the right timing! zzZ)
I had my list packed into luggages! Hehe!! We have a 32inch & 24inch~
Hubs and I each a backpack, thou mine is totally just mummy bag *cries*
Sounds like alot of space? But there's just so much to bring now with a kid!!
Diapers, wet wipes, meds, toiletries, oral care, thermal flask milk powder, snacks......
And the list goes on and on... oh gosh, how did people manage *sweats*

But then, anyways, we have to make it so... I did quite some homework!
How to pack, what to pack so as to keep everyone sane from holiday mess!
Hehe, bought some travel organising pouches, from taobao too!!
And that was a very wise decision to make, just look at my neat luggage!
I also tried to konmari after seeing how Cheesie managed so well!
She definitely is a mother I would look up to! Like a superwoman!!
Now, I am pleased with my packing!

This is how my Note list in my iphone looks like now.
I guess we're just left with Itinerary which I am 3/4 done!!
A lineup of our trip:

1. Two Nights at Hakone
2. Self drive to Lake Ashi
3. Self drive to Fuji Safari Park
4. Sakura photoshoot
5. Disney! with baby
6. Meet up with a dear friend

Totally cant wait!! Getting excited!
But it's 12am now so excuse me, I shall sleep! Count down: 11 more dayssss!

The Dilemma

Recently I've met a situation that caught me in huge dilemma.
And worse is I have no one who has a neutral view on it to talk with.
Thats why I am penning my thoughts here, which hopefully helps T___T

First, a selfie of my little monster and me!
He is now coming to 9 months old in another week or so.
And it has come to the cross junction for me to make a decision.
To send him to childcare or not to?

So here's the story,
Initially, before we got married, I was certain that I can care for my own baby.
So we planned and worked towards sustaining life with only one income.
And I am proud to say, we are doing very well so far, we even managed to save!

My first 3 months of being a SAHM (stay at home mum) was horrific.
I almost broke down, but picked myself up with great helps around me.
Now everything (especially physical stuffs) has gone on track, new problem arise.

My little monster now sticks to me like glue!
Everyone tells me that's because I am his main care taker, ok I agree.
He is extremely insecure, he cries like he's being abused if I just turn my back.
He can be happily playing with his toys when le hubs put him to play area...
But cries so hard the moment he spots me! And what everyone says?
Babies are like that... that... doesnt really solve anything I think.
Because he behaves like this and only to me! I have a really hard time doing chores.
Now, people will tell me chores arent important and the baby is, but but...
I have a husband working hard enough outside and I would be this lazy shit
if I even leave plates and pots for him to clear for me or wash the laundry.
I am not the lucky person who's husband is the favourite son to have help from MIL
Nor am I lucky enough to hold a job that could pay my 4k earning mum to take care of him.
Also no luck with threatening my MIL to quit her 20years job just to help me like some thick skinned selfish human did.

I need to do chores
I need to at least cook for my baby
I need to pee and shit

But I cant because my baby relies on me way too much then normal.
Look at his frantic crying just because he was left to play in his cot for 5mins?
I am starting to feel it's not good for him because my time for him is not quality.
We had SIL's helper over for a week last month and my baby learnt how to crawl with helper's guidance.
I was surprised because with me, my son only wants to be on me and refuses to even sit beside me on his playmat.
Then on a few occasions I found him enjoying his toys with another companion as long as it is not me.

So I guessed that maybe going to an infant care would do him good.
I know this is gravely debatable and I would just lose my point cause you know...
Some parents (esp mums on forums) nowadays are crazy!
Like really cray cray! :(

But infant care was not only thought of now~
When he was this tiny, 2 months old, I had already put him on waiting list.
Back then was only because I couldnt handle this whole new life in general.
Now that I think of IFC again, is based on a thought that it will be better for my baby.
I have no idea how this little monster develop such insecurities.
I don't think it's normal to cry like going into fits just because I dont carry him.
Thou, I agree that my care for him is the best I can ever give, but is that truly enough?

I am also aware of the cons of sending my baby to an IFC.
He would fall sick often, he would have divided attention, he might get bullied.
But I am determined to not raise my child into the new durian generation.
And so my husband says I should overlook these and 既来之则安之!
Which is, we'll deal with it when it comes, the problems~
So now what is bothering me? I guess the comments that I would get~
How should I justify myself and be proud of my decision to send him into IFC?
Hais, I am just this stubborn pool of shit, I always feel the need to justify!
Just like my decision for elective csec! I die die dont wanna lie to outsiders
who doesn't support elective csec and want to stand up for my decision!
End up I had myself feeling stressful about how to counter
every negative comments that came straight at me about this decision~

Then, I am also slightly reluctant to wean my baby off latching for breastmilk.
No fathers would understand this thou, it's a bond only mums would feel for.
It would be hard and tiring to change and adapt all over again too.

I am in such dilemma.
What should I do that is best? Hmmm.

Hello dusty blog space! I am back!
Haven been able to post, yes, motherhood is too overwhelming!
Give me 100 more post and I still wouldn't be done telling you about this new life!
And yes, that's my little monster who just turned 5 months old 3 days back!
His name is Shane and we call him 翔翔 or 宝宝 at home *beams*

I have been continuously writing on my caesarian experience ever since my baby was 3mo!
And now it is still saved as draft, incomplete with much more to add :p

So actually, this post is to...... YES! RANT!
But not so much lah. Hahaha! I am just upset that some things had to change.
That, am I thinking too much of somethings that may not be happening~
Or am I just not sensitive to the hints that a dear friend gave indicating the desire to drift.
I want the best for this relationship, I love how we have this relationship.
But I cant help but feel sad that maybe, this thought wasnt mutual to start with.

Please just let it be me... the paranoid me thinking too much 🙏🏻

XMAS '15 • クリスマス

It's Christmas again! Time really does flies!
I was invited by my very kind boss to the company's Xmas Party!!
Thou no longer working with them, I am glad she thinks of me! 🎉

As usual, The Pressie Exchange!
I bought 2 thermal bottles (500ml) from Taobao which makes exactly $20 :p
Cause we were supposed to buy within range of $20-$30~ Call me taobao queen!

We finally have a christmas tree this year~
And no, I had none of those alcohol 🙊🙊🙊

The best bud at work~ 👯👯👯

The best boss I've ever met~ 👸🏻👸🏻👸🏻

My loots from the party! So many presents!!!
It has since became a tradition that most of us will prepare a small gift for everyone~
So in return, everyone has quite some loots to bring home!

I received so many Loccitane products!
Thou I really love this brand but I only have a pair of hands! 🙊

Gave one to le bestie and using the rest as a moisturiser on my belly!
So 奢侈 right? But Singapore really doesnt require handcream~
And I no longer am the OL who stays 8 hours in the air con room so.... Lol~

On the actual christmas day itself~ we had steamboat at home!
When everyone is having turkey 😂

And then in the night, we had a family dinner to celebrate my mil's bday~

JB Trip! • 隣の国へ

Ohayo! It's a JB trip post! Me in JB doesnt need make up! Will kena robbbbb!
At first I was really skeptical about going into JB to source for furnitures.
Although many raved about the super economical price you can find~
One thing for sure, it's not going to be easy for a pregnant me to cross custom!
I cannot take the heat while waiting for bus and the squeezing part 😭
But after much consideration, we decided to do it before my tummy gets bigger!

A few photos of items we got~

A dining set for $530 inclusive of transport and taxes~

Bed set with mattress for $1120 inclusive of transport and taxes!

Other items we got includes 18 lights & 5 fans in total!
8.5ft Sofa, Coffeetable, TV Console for our master bedroom~
And we ended up saving more then 5k as compared if we buy here.
After seeing what the huge savings it makes, I think the trip is worth!
We stayed at the parent's house and drove their car around.
If we didnt had this support, I doubt we could managed this saving!

And and... How can a JB trip be less of good cheap food?!
We had so many dimsum in 2 days!! LOL!✨

Revised Drawing • 新築工事②

After some really long wait *rolls eye*
The revised 3D drawings from our contractor is finally out!
I totally cannot apprehend why editing for a handful of drawings...

But anyway, lets be subjective, the drawings turned out pretty well!
So much nearer to what I had pictured in mind, looks much decently like my house!
Thou not exactly but it has more then 80% hitting the jackpot now~

Nice storage wall, just had to change every surface to mirror~

Changing the colours to white and wood for tv storage console~
And we will be all good!! I am so happy with the design!

Made an appointment to choose our laminates and paint colours~
Everything seems to be settling down! I feel so much relieved now!

Some other stuffs I've started looking at online... A low bed frame!
We feel that without a bed frame, the master bedroom doesn't feel official!
Hahaha! Lame theory right? We have a platform many people told us not to~
But I dont really care cause I'd like to have one! :p

A cheap TV console for my master bedroom too~

And some nice single colour bedsheets...

Hopefully we can hear from HDB soon!
And hopefully we can settle everything before March 2016~
Where I'm in my last month of pregnancy~

There was this day we headed down to IKEA on Tampines~
With intention to source for suitable items for our new home!

Christmas is coming! Everywhere are xmas decorations~

Twintail for the day~ Simple 10mins make up without falsie...
I hope the weight gain never appears but sadly, its a wishful thinking on my part :(
My face now is like a pear shape, like ham ham!! :(
So pardon me for the heavy editing! :p

It is always fun to walk IKEA, i think IKEA boss is a genius~
And now they have delish curry puffs other then the so famous meatballs!
Since young I have fantasised about my future home while walking ard IKEA~
Kind of want to buy every nice stylish stuffs in there!!! :p
I like this dining set! The colours goes perfectly with the house~

Also looking at having IKEA curtains too, they are so damn cheap!
Even getting JB contractors to come in for custom making is not that cheap~
Then again, I know cheap things all has it's down side by nature!
So well, wish me luck!! 🙊

Other stuffs I've seen and will likely buy... Laundry Basket!

Considering Sofa Set! This grey looks so sleek!
And honestly cheap lah, le husband feels it's quality is not as good~
But I really like the colours they have for choice!

And Place Mats! Le husband says this is so redundant~
But I dont really care! Hahahahaha~

Ended the trip with some 50cents Ice Cream Cone!
Now we're only waiting for our revised 3D drawings to make decision!

New House • 新築工事①

it's gonna be a long spam post because...

Previously in 2013, I blogged about signing my new house lease.

Yes, It is finally going to be done with construction and inspecting!!!
In less then 6 month's time at the very most!!! 🏡🏠
That said~ not until you go through the stage in life do you know that...
It can be so tiring! Planning for a new house is tiring!!!
Both mentally and physically, oh! Making decisions too...

Neither le husband nor I am the kind who leave all up to people~
We hold our fate and decision strong by our own beliefs.
We talked to two Interior Designers and one Renovator (referred)~
Before we decide to let the renovator company take our nest into hands!

For 90% of the same things, the renovator quoted 20% cheaper!
I guess, ID has cost to cover like having on house designers~
Whereas this renovator company seems to work like a coordinator...
He is the point connecting different contractors for the renovations to be done.
They provide "free" 3D drawings, paint and painting service & freebies.
Sounds like a good deal right? But wait...

Let's not talk about any other thing that has not happened yet.
Take a look at my 3D drawings of the first conceptualised stage:

Living Room 1

Living Room 2

View of Living Room from Kitchen over counter
That is my food counter aka dining table after hacking a wall.

View of Kitchen from Living Room over counter

Master Bedroom 1 (bedside)

Master Bedroom 2 (wardrobe)

Master Bedroom WC

Ok, that's all for show thou I have more of my common rooms and wc.
Look nice right? Very well designed with many decorations ya~

But! Here are the problems & questions:

1) Drawings are less then 50% accuracy
I understand that these 3D drawings are and will not be 100% accurate. But less then 50% is rather incredible, in a negative way. I am especially mindful about the colours used.

2) Black window grills? Really?
I know it's the in-thing to use black track lights and have black frames of windows and doors to go with nowadays. But it was not requested on our part, not quoted on how it's going be coated black too (original from hdb is silver) if we don't oppose, will they take it as we are having black frames and charge us after work is done based on drawing?? And most importantly we specified our preference of using normal white lights. Idk how it ended up looking like that.

3) Shelves
Seriously, I dont know why "simple" is so hard to apprehend. I wanted a Muji style kind of look, in their industrialised term "contemporary" mixed with "resort style" design. Well, to each's own imagination, I can close one eye to it.

4) Too much accessories around, everywhere!
It is also understandable that a 3D drawing with the purpose to beautify the image in your mind to have decorations and accessories added. However this is genuinely not just a pinch of colours added, it's all over and so messy! Totally obstructs my view of the house. Again, this is very subjective so... I'll close another eye if they can amend. *nods*

5) WC aka Toilet
Put aside that I have knowledge on shower screens and that it was very badly drawn with wrong hardware used. We paid a deposit for the quotation quoting us a overlaying of our toilet floor and wall titles. However, the wall of this drawing turns out to be like the original given by hdb! It was precisely the mosiac titles inside the shower screen that irks me so much that I am willing to throw in 4k (heartpain) in to have them changed!! And now, I see them in my 3D drawing, idk how am I supposed to be happy with that~


So, there is a reason why we met up for hours for discussion right?
Talking about our preferred style and colour and design beforehand.
So we can see a drawing somewhat near to expectations of the reno~

I mentioned that these drawings he provide is "free" right?
He also did mentioned we can have a couple of changes done...
Let's not take advantage (thou most customers do) of him and say twice?
I feel rightful to claim a two times editing chance in view of these~

But his respond was pretty disappointing!
Nothing specifically saying we "cannot" edit but many excuses were given~
Like, not able to edit the lights because it is not carpentry work under him.
Not able to remove accessories because it's a "design" (oh wow, I am awed)
Adding to these misfortune, we waited for more then 3 weeks for it!
To be exact, a good 20 days excluding weekends for 3D drawing!
Really? I know of people who can use 3D Max, none say it would take this long!
Within 2 weeks promised but mentioned that it was peak period after 2wks
Saying other clients got their keys altogether and needs urgent amendments.

I know we are not his only clients, totally understandable!
But this is not the right attitude to try to put your clients because it's free.
Other places charge for drawing amendments after specifically how many changes.
The only reason I find him reluctant to accept our request is it's free.
He must have been collaborating with either. Freelancer (charge by per drawing)
Or someone who is earn extra out of his/her work time as a ID too.
It's not a big sum that he is earning out of us but neither is it small too~
At the bottom line, it's really not our problem as a client that he has problems!
Especially with his suppliers, it's something he has to work out earning our money!

Le husband has a few rounds of talks with him before he said ok to amend.
And it has been 2 weeks since he agreed to talk to his designers on the changes!
Nothing is back yet, no news from him! How responsible~
Well, I just needed to rant! I know it's inevitable...
Problems with contractors etc... I just hope all turns out well!
Especially when we get our keys and is super urgent in reno to move in!
I hope he puts off his other clients like what he is currently doing to us now...
So as to serve his other "urgent" clients first *rolls eye*

AFASG2015 • イベント

Le husband and I have been talking about going to AFA for ages~
Ever since we know each other, I have been trying to go with him.
I am so lucky that my husband is a otaku in a way... HAHAHA!
He is literally a manga encyclopaedia, reads manga every free min he has!
He likes Japanese food, culture and me who is crazily in love with Japan~
So this year~ we finally went together!! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ♡

One big push for me to decide this is the year mainly due to Kyudotsg!
They had a space in a booth to exhibit some of his amazing works~
And I am hanged on the wall! Wahahaha~ of course must go support!
Since it's such a huge exposure, a great stage to show his photos~

His has one of the few very exquisite Japanese photobook-like works!
Good that many people realising his talents and asking for his service~
Please keep up the decent great job so far!! You'll be famous soon! Haha!

Here's the boss of Kyudotsg~ 🙊🙊🙊

After AFA, we were so hungry we can swallow cows...
So that's us with our already empty plates at Tokyo Soup Stock.
Initially wanted to bring le husband to try Mujicafe at Paragon~
But they ran out of food at 8:30pm! So we had no choice :(

Here's a Makeup of the day!
Photo edited obviously, lolol~ I am too fat now you know!

And my Hair of the day!! French Braids!
It took me 45 mins to complete my hair and make! Thats long!
I used to be able to finish my full gyaru make up in 15mins~
And a simple french braid in 10mins at the very most! Now all rusty!
Especially the make up part, I've slowed down quite abit...

But it's ok! Practice makes perfect! I'll practice harder in future!
When I am ready to head back to the society~ maybe 3 years later?

Le husband is 5 days older then me!
But we didnt celebrate much, just a steamboat dinner~


On my birthday, le husband bought me a Strawberry Shortcake!


Got an ang bao from the MIL~

We went to UMA yakitori for a little birthday treat~
Despite me having not yet recovered cold and fever :p

Le BFF got me some macarons from TWG!! My all time favourite!

And Boon Eng'a handwritten birthday message on my print~


It's my 7th birthday spent together with the husband~
And the first that we're no longer just two of us!

So I have turned 27th it still feels surreal that I am old...
And going to become a mother of a child~ haven got use to it :/

MISA • 仲間

A few days ago~ I met up with my Misa chan!!
It has been a year since I last seen her around~
We went for taitai lunch the last round too :p

Had lunch in newly open MUJIcafe at Paragon~
I had a 3-deli set and ordered a Iced Ryukyu Chai Tea for $18.90
My choice of Veggie Gratin for hot deli is super nice!!! *yums*
I like the Pickles Salad too but the omelette is quite futsu~

There was so much to talk about so lunch was totally not enough.
We bought desserts set slightly after we finished our lunch...
Misa chan can really eat alot for a girl!! Hahaha~
Had the Mugicha Pudding and Earl Grey Chiffon Cake!
Mugicha Pudding is sweet but a very creative dessert imo~
Replacing sweeten mugicha as caramel in normal pudding...

We chatted over a good 3 hours about everything a girl can think of~
It was a good catch up with her, it's good seeing her living well!
Feels great to have a small handful of real quality friendship at this age!
I am thankful for the people who stayed with me *emos*

*wipe tears*
LOL! the pregnancy hormones

OL for a day(=゚ω゚)ノ

I went back to work for a day~ for a presentation...
Lucky me, I can still fit into my blazer after the 5kg weight gain!
And the secondhand dress I bought in Hokkaido finally came to use~
It hides my baby bump perfectly!! Wahaha!

Rare make up chance calls for selfie!!
I think I look old and aged recently especially with my fat face! :(

This selfie angle looks younger :3

Randomly~ My mum made us a present for our new home!
A crystal puzzle that she handmade, stick on one by one~
It's so much eye power for a 50 year old person! Lol!
I think it's a perfect gift!

Little Rei 👧🏻

Some long time back, in August after I came back from Hokkaido.
We had a picnic! And the main star was little rei!

She was still wobbling when she ran, she was just a year old!
Now she is no more little, she is a toddler *wipes tear*
Got her own thinking got her own preferences got character!

I love this photo! Three angels!

Last weekend, we met up again! Rei is so grown up now!
She can munch on a sugar bread now! And drink packet milk!
And you know 3 woman makes a market, we have 5! Haha!

I so wish I have a daughter! I can dress her like this!!!
Photo courtesy of the dad who edited her into a little princess~
The dress itself cost $60 from hongkong disneyland!!

Photo courtesy again from the mum~
Aww this little cheeky thingy! I wanna pinch her cheeks!! *punipuni*

Despite leaving my company, I was still invited to join them!
For a dinner at the Glass Association Annual D&D last weekend~

Le partner in crime! My chopstick at work~

The very caring purchaser, whom is one of the best PRC I ever met~

The little sister who can eat double of a guy!

It was really nice to have met them up!
I was getting so bored at home, chatting with them makes me happy!
And most of them are mothers already they shared quite alot with me!
Maybe of I had been able to endure the toughest first trimester~
I would be happier working now! Haha! But I dont regret my choices.

Rare times now that I put on a make up! So must selfie!!

Selfie with le husband too~

新しいメガ • New Specs!

I made a new specs!! From the Japanese chainstore, OWNDAYS!

It's the air series that weighs super light!
And said to be bendable, it will not snap into half!
They did tests and there's even warranty for that aspect~

Le husband made a new pair of specs too!
Since it is claimable under his company, it's a good benefit I think~
In total we spent about $440 for two specs and got it 20mins later...
Maa maa~ Japanese can come up with all kinds of concept, haha!
17:44  |  未分類 | Uncatagorized  |  EDIT  |  Top↑



When I first stopped work, I ordered TINGKAT delivery~
Mainly because I was feeling too unwell to move and get lunch...
And then the haze came so suddenly that it became bad to go out!
My choice was 3 dishes with 1 soup (4 in total), skipping rice~
The quantity was sufficient judging that I dont have a big appetite.
But the quality... Hmm, the first week was still not too bad~
Mentally, I guess it was new and interesting so I didnt reject them.
Gradually, the coldness of dishes, not well cooked hardness...
and the repeating menu is making me really turned off by it!
At the last few meals, I nearly threw all away! Rather eat plain bread!
What's more is that a 20 meals cycle is not cheap, $140 per cycle~
That makes each lunch meal a freaking $7!! Expensive caifan... Lol
So now that I am getting better, I've decided to make my own!

This was yesterday's lunch! Salad with dressing!
Dressing was salad cream with lemon & black pepper~
I would add more pepper and salt to the dressing so I'll use less!
Money saving tricks! Lol~ I scrimp and save alot after pregnancy~
Of course, I do eat meat too! And I still eat junk food like Macdonals!
Choose salad because I found out tomato, onions and cucumbers...
Contains lots of various nutrients that the baby needs~

And this is today's jumbo sandwich! Wahahaha!
With all the veggies above and cheese plus egg! It was good!!
Attempted to make it into club sandwich but it was too fat to cut~
At times, I eat sweet potato, steamed cod fish with enoki mushrooms...
Chinese snacks like chee chong fun, char siew bun and lor mai kai~
Various menus decided on sundays, le husband shops with me for it~
We would spend some time in the supermarket to plan my week's lunch!
This saves us quite alot of money too! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

[新婚旅行3回目] 北海道 ー 登別 ①

Day 1: 01/08/2015, Saturday, Singapore - Hokkaido (Noboribetsu)

ヤッホー!Finally after 8 months, we're on a holiday again!!

And for the first time, we are flying by JAL!
August is summer and most places are really hot~
We came to decision knowing that Hokkaido is still at about 24deg!
But then, it's all lie!!!! It is freaking 29deg so like Singapore!!! :(

It's a long journey too~ 7hours from Singapore to Tokyo Haneda.
With a flight delay and we have to run for our connecting plane!
1 & half more hour from Tokyo to Hokkaido Chitose~

Upon reaching, we waited for an hour at a run-down looking JR station.

It's a connecting station like Bishan called Minami Chitose...
I think less then 10 people are waiting for the same train as ours~

It's a 18 hours journey before we checked-in at our ryokan *sweats*
But we made fun out of the long journey~ I am so used to have him.
I think I cant travel alone now~ ahahaha

Upon reaching Noboribetsu station awaits us staircase!
Which is the norm in Japan anyway, we were not surprised~

We reached the station earlier then expected...
And the ryokan was supposed to send a car to pick up us at 5pm!
So we waited kiasi-ly and didn't dare to walk too far away~

Bear statues at the station entrance~ there's a bear park there up the hill.

Waited and waited after past 5pm!
We were told to wait at this post box! But no one came, no calls, no email!
I was angry that they forgot about this and note to myself to ask later!

So we thought, we might as well walk there~
Before they offered the car service, we already planned to walk~
It's supposed to be a 20mins walk so it's still feasible ya?

And there were nice scenery along the way too so no complains~

No complains I thought, but there's so many slopes to climb!
And many crows on the electric cable above your head!
The crows in Japan are HUGE! like size of an adult cat *eww*
And seeing them in large numbers can be really gross they are super black!
Like seeing couple dozens of cockroaches squirming around! YES! Gross!

And it is surely not 20mins! We walked a 30mins journey!
Japanese people walk really fast!

We are finally here! Upon checking in I questioned them~
I think it's inappropriate for them to take it like nothing has happened!
And they didn't admit they forget until I showed then their email!
They apologised and arranged to send us out to the station the following day~
So I accepted (-___-;) I still cannot believe we find this in Japan!

Upon checking in, my mood hasn't changed for the better!
The yukata they provide has a smoke smell (-__-;) like unclean~
It's a smoking room so I know it's inevitable, didn't have non-smoking.

But my mood got instantly lit up when I opened the window door!
Connected to the backyard, we saw deers! And seagulls passing by!
Like strolling outside our room!!! And the seaview!!!!!

The sky and the sea joined, cant differentiate them anymore!

Our room's teaset :)

Since we didnt have much time for onsen already, I did mask!
Hokkaido limited edition Lavander Lululun Mask! Smell good!

Then we headed for dinner, shared a room with other occupants~

I love Kaiseki meals~ Even looking at it makes me happy!

Menu of our dinner! There's a kurobuta sukiyaki!

Sukiyaki is one of my favourite Japanese food!!!

お造り盛り合わせ!Assorted Sashimi!

I only take nama ebi in Japan~
Duly because I find the ones in Singapore not fresh enough :p

The dinner and the roomview totally lit up my day!
All the little hurdles during the journey suddenly seems all worth~ lol!

Here's my handsome husband


That's how we ended the day, after dinner onsen!!
And we bought some beer from the vending machine outside our room!
We think... Our baby boy... Is made this very day :p


16:42  |  未分類 | Uncatagorized  |  EDIT  |  Top↑



It has been a while since I dress up and did a make up!
I was finally feeling better today, at the exact 12th week day!!
No bad morning sickness, no tantrum from the baby~ hehe~
So we decided to head out and meet our ID and have my hair dyed!
Look at that pudding hair! :(

OOTD: 500yen sweats, 1000yen checkered skirt,
$5 shoe from Taobao, $2 baby blue socks from DAISO

LOTD: Actually it's my same old make up! Lol!!!
Brown shades of eyeshadow, black liner, red blusher, pink lipstain and falsie!

After meeting our ID to confirm some details of our new house renovations~
We headed to Liang Court! For lunch! I was so hungry!
I always wanted to try the Omelette outside Mediya, finally I had the chance!
It's call Pecori Japanese Egg Restaurant, lol~ egg specialist it says~

The food was a true disappointment! :(
Not sure if le husband and I had too much authentic good food in Japan
Or that out of all the many many dishes I cannot cook properly,
Japanese omelette rice is actually the one I can cook best!!
I think... I can cook better then this, le husband agrees~ hehehe

And then I had my hair dyed at Ash Salon again!
My stylist was Kelvin again and he is very nice to talk to~
I first requested to have black and he disapprove of that decision...
Saying it will be difficult for me to colour it bright again afterwards~
But well, that's not my main concern right now so I don't really care :p
I just want it black so that I don't look like a pudding anymore~
Anything after pregnancy, can be considered again! Hahahaha!
So then I told him I am pregnant and I don't want the dye to touch my roots~
He was very patience and careful on that, and he chatted about his kid too!
I am happy with the look, with bangs too because I look weird without it~
For a moment I think I look like acchan in Iiwake Maybe~ hahahaha~

We randomly walked around town after my hair was done~
Singapore is indeed boring, everywhere is the same selling the same things!
We settled for dinner pretty fast! Look where we are!!

Ippudo! Luckily we came early, before dinner time!
Even at non peak hours, we queued for half an hour... I was surprised!
Never thought that there would still be queue after so many years~
After so many more Japanese ramen-ya coming into Singapore!
This place holds many memories for me too, I was the opening batch of staff!
I always loved the places I chose to work for<3

I ordered spicy miso tonkotsu with kata-men (hard noodles)...
And negi (spring & chopped onions) topping~ I like Japanese negi more!
Added some mashed garlic too, it's really nice in ramen!!

Bought some violet macarons from Antoinette and headed home!
And I guess my baby either hates Japanese food or that I stuffed myself~
I vomited half a bowl of ramen out! Lol~ too sinful a day~
Even up to now, I still eat only half a portion of my food~ so I wonder why?
Though it's boring in Singapore, I am happy to have come out for a walk!

Mum's Birthday

Yesterday was my mum's birthday and we brought her out for lunch!
Had lunch at a nearby shopping mall and we shopped Daiso together...

Then we brought her to to Roycemary Cafe for some coffee and cakes!

My mum looks so funky she doesn't even look anywhere near 50!
Lol~ just randomly... Oh and I had my first ever rainbow cake!
It's too damn sweet for me

OHA! Back to complete my travel diary!
I hope I can complete all before my baby comes into the world :3

Day6, 27/11/2014, Thursday, Tokyo Disneyland

OOTD for Disneyland! Hehe!

I tried to curl my bangs into those the Japanese girls love to make!
But it was kind of fail because it flatten at the end of the day :(

Headed for a quick lunch at tsukiji market~

Then we burn away the calories by walking from Tsukiji to Tokyo station!
Despite the many trips to Japan, this is my first time seeing it from the outside.
Always get to see the station's pretty exterior from drama and now I finally saw!

Had some coffee & tea in the station's little cafe~ [Le Sun Palm]

Its a cosy little place, we stopped by because we had still plenty of time.
One of the best way to save cost is to buy half-day amusement park tickets!
Honestly, it's not only money saving, saves you the time on queue too~

*winks winks*

Tokyo Disneyland at 6pm!
We chose disneyland because we previously went to disneysea~

Our tickets! :)

It was near Christmas so the atmosphere is so jingle-ly!!!

Selfie with the xmas tree!

Where magic never dies! Its amazing the atmosphere in there!
USS has got so much more to create such atmosphere as a theme park~

We played till the end, it was fun!!

Headed home and ended our day with a cup of yuzu umeshu!

I have always been a sucker for romance drama~
Just like shojo manga is the ultimate weakness of some girls!


So crazy about this story now! Journey of Flower
I am reading its novel because the drama is way too slow~
4 episodes a week is too heart wrenching for the crazy me!
So I read the novel crazily! Slept at 3am last night :p

And because I quite like both the female and male lead~
I think they both fit perfectly into the role given!
Bless me with tissues and a pair of no-cure dark circles... Lol!
I am only at the 600th page of 2000 over pages now!

But it makes me happy

YESSSS! I am done!
MUAHAHAHAHHAA! *echoes the evil laugh*

Earl Grey Tea!

I really do love this tea, much!
Some people cannot stand its aroma~
Le husband says it smells like some indian tea! Hahaha!

And say hello to my new cup! In mint green!
Bought it from taobao too~ only $5!

Then again... From Taobao... My new case!
Gudegude tamatama~ ぐでたま!

22:07  |  未分類 | Uncatagorized  |  EDIT  |  Top↑


ODEN! *slurps*

There is frozen oden selling in the supermarket!!! *spazzes*
Of course, the expensive Cold Storage~ lol~

After cooking for an afternoon and chilling it in the fridge~
And then heat up again!!! We added our own daikon and tamago.
Also bought our own shirataki and konyaku *hearts*
The frozen pack is $8.50 enough for two person~
But only has those fishcake stuffs like chikuwa, hanpen, ganmo, gobou~
I love love love daikon in oden so much!!

Then... I started researching on how to make our own oden!
And realised it was hell easy! Lol! Will make one soooooon!
22:20  |  未分類 | Uncatagorized  |  EDIT  |  Top↑



My grandma was admitted into hospital out of a sudden fever.
I cant help but want to and feels I had to be there at the instant~
So I went out during lunch time called a cab there and back...

That lasted for 3 days~
Lucikly it was nothing serious.

Thou, saw some really annoying relative that I want to stab so so hard!!
Seriously, if you have the money to buy your mum birdnest...
Why is it so hard to give her $50 more for living?
It is truly beyond me to apprehend this way of filial~

But my poor stomach had to go hungry.
There was basically no time for lunch~ only beancurd!
Cause there's one Mr Bean at KTPH :)

Contemplating, like for the 29473948329th time~
Whether or not to cut my fringe!! Thou I love bangs...
But I am starting to face the reality that I am 3 more years to 30!
Long parted fringe sometimes makes the hair looks flat, the cons
Haiya~ how?

21:18  |  未分類 | Uncatagorized  |  EDIT  |  Top↑


hello, again~

Life has been busy these days... Over the same old things~

But but! Good things does happen~
Like my super god-daughter model debuted!
She is too cute, my eyeballs are dropping hearts out of it!


There was this day where I wore my long kept tartan dress~
It was too short and I never like the idea of safety pants...
But I bought this sheer coat from Taobao! Only $4 and my problems are solved!!
Think it goes well with the white teeth heels~

This... Picture... Looks kind of wrong like we're naked but no~
I have my floral dress on :)
And the whole point of this photo is...
No point, I just want to show off my handsome husband

Some vain selfie when the makeup is on a good makeup day~

Vain selfie #2

And hello again, the OL mode me~
Some days, I just feel like an old hag growing out of cuteness
On some days, I feel like I can be cute even at the age of 40!
Is this some disorder? Lolol!
