My Ultherapy Journey – The PROCEDURE

Drum with Ethan: Uptown Funk

You’ve watched Ayden play the simplified version of Uptown Funk from his Grade 1 book. You’ve probably watched me trying to play that same song too. Yes, the keyword there is TRY as I am still unable to play it accurately today. Now let’s see how big bro Ethan does it but of course he’ll be playing the ORIGINAL and COMPLETE version of Uptown Funk.

Tae Kwon Do with Ethan: 2nd Poom Black Belt

I’ll just put it up in the blog that Ethan received his 2nd Poom Black Belt in Taekwondo last weekend so that I won’t forget. This is because it takes quite some time before he can take the next grading test. I remember he took the 1st Poom Black Belt grading test about one and a half year ago. I guess it takes a longer time to climb the ladder in the black belt category.  […]

Book Giveaway: Guinness World Records 2019

What have I been reading? No, it’s not the WHALE book. I stopped reading that book midway as my heart can’t accept how absurd everything is. I have a simple mind. I can’t digest complicated matters. I prefer something straight to the point. I love books with lots of graphics and my favourite book distributor – Pansing knows exactly just that. They have recently sent me a copy of Guinness World of Records 2019. YES! The world’s […]

HOW TO INCORPORATE TEXTURE INTO INTERIOR DESIGN

There can be a plethora of interior design elements that tend to take precedent in any decorating endeavor. Homeowners, however, tend to look at the bigger elements and impart more consideration towards these elements. This is especially so when one is decorating from scratch (take for example, one of those new HDB developments in yishun). When there are more crucial decisions to be made (for example, what color scheme to go for; what key furniture […]

Did you know palm oil is found in over half of all supermarket products, including food, makeup and cleaning products but the impacts of unsustainable production can be devastating. Take a look at the list of ingredients in chocolates, cooking oils, instant noodles and many more, chances are you’ll see palm oil as one of the ingredient including food that kids eat regularly such as pizza and ice cream.

Swiss-Garden International Traditional Mooncakes

We received a pleasant surprise recently when a dear acquaintance delivered a box of mooncakes for my mooncake crazy boys. We are really blessed to be surrounded by such generous and lovely people. We were at the playground opposite our house when we got these mooncakes so it was just nice to have a mooncake picnic.  Conveniently packed with a knife and four little forks (in the box), these mooncakes are good to eat anytime, anywhere.  […]

Drum with Ayden: 2018 Trinity Rock & Pop Drum Grade 1 | Another One Bites The Dust

Ayden grows up seeing big brother Ethan playing the drum and piano. It influences him to learn the piano and take up drumming too.  I use big bro Ethan’s old books to guide Ayden on the piano but that’s about it. He never pursue it further unlike drum. He requested for us to enroll him for formal lessons under Ethan’s drum teacher and we did back in June. It has been almost 3 months now […]

Gathering with my former schoolmates

Today’s post is quite backdated. It was dated way back to the 4th day of Hari Raya this year.  This is the story… I have an active Whatsapp group of my former schoolmates. Not of the entire school but about 52 of us. There used to be more but some members left because the group is too noisy for their phone. They claimed that their battery drained quickly because of our never ending chats. We […]

Big Prawn Nasi Lemak Lunch

Both Ethan and his father were born a week apart in July. We had a celebration for Ethan with his friends this year but did not do much for the Daddy as he was a little under the weather back then.  The boys surprised the Daddy with their DIY birthday gift and homebaked cake. We did not go out to celebrate so I decided to compensate and treated Darling to lunch last weekend.  I walk […]
