As a child I really liked to read. I particularly enjoyed Knid Blyton’s books and the Babysitter club’s series. I would often spend hours after that making believe and even attempted (embarrassingly) to write my own novel by the name of Petsitter club as I grew slightly older.
At 1.5yrs old, Junior makes his second trip out of the country and my much needed break. I’ve recently just concluded some projects at work and was dying for a break to recharge and rejuvenate. We chose Perth because i) we were travelling with my folks and they loved Perth and ii) I had so many great reviews and recommendations from friends and iii) Australia is such a family friendly country.
Right when Junior was a tiny baby, I’ve always wondered about the things he might like as he grew older. Will he be a “cars” person? Or a “ball” person? Or someone who likes animals like his papa? Will he like to craft? Or prefers to read or draw?
I’ve heard so much about the Alive Museum but haven’t been since they arrived here in Singapore. The Alive Museum was created in Korea and opened its doors at Suntec City in 2014. Every artwork is hand-painted by their artists before coating with a special paint to preserve the quality of the artwork. I have to say this 3D interactive illusionary concept is refreshing and sounds like fun.
As a kid I’ve always liked these meat patties that my grandma makes. I don’t get to eat them often, just occasionally and they goes exceptionally well with ketchup. Once in a while now that we are all grown up now, it makes special appearances and I’ll fall in love with them all over again.
Like all mothers, I often find myself pondering and asking the mister if he thought we were simulating and teaching Junior enough. He is afterall at the stage where he is learning how to pick up words and attempts to form phases with it. He is learning alphabets, numbers and shapes while not so much on colours and most of the time through books and the nursery rhymes animation he watches.
Honestly, I don’t consider myself a blogger mom, I’m just a regular mom who likes to blog! I started this blog as a creative outlet to document my passion for sewing. I love sewing women, kids’ apparels and things for the home! But when my little bub came along in 2014, this little haven also evolved. I started sharing more of my motherhood journey, the ups-downs, joy and challenges and my newfound interest in cooking. While it does seems like a mish-mash of things, it’s exactly how life is to me right now. Now I juggle between family, work and my passion to blog about things that matters.
So read on to find out how an ordinary week looks like for me.
One of the trickiest things of being a first time parent is figuring out what to buy before the arrival of your newborn. I spent lots of time on the internet researching and overspending in shops buying things I thought I’ll need. We had some hits and some misses. Some things were just not necessary to have.
We have accumulated so many photos of Junior since his arrival into our arms 14 months ago, all thanks to new age technology with gadgets like the camera! While we tries to be very diligent in housekeeping all these photos on the computer, we didn’t go very far with labelling each folder.
Ever since Junior started teething (he has 8 little teeth now by the way), he seems to have lost just slightly some interest in food especially meat. He once love pork and beef but now seem to shun it just slightly. I was abit worried at most but I reckon he is feeding well on softer solid food and otherwise he looks pretty happy and I concluded things should be a-ok so far.
