Hello from Parc Lumiere

I'm now at the new home with Aunt LY checking for defects and testing all the aircon units. It's a tedious process but we're enjoying every part of it as I know it'll eventually be worth it!

Signing off,

edit to add:
Here's Kai checking out his new home..

He said he wants to "you yong" (swim) inside the planter.... -__-

Chose his room and showing it off to Grandma, Daddy & uncle Tony

"Mummy, my new room!"
Sorry peeps if I sometimes take ages to reply SMSes or miss your calls. I've been busy as a bee with the new home, meeting contractors and different people for different quotations. Oh yah, we've given the go-ahead to our landscaping company to install a Koi pond in the balcony just yesterday, complete with Chengal wood decking as Andy & I had originally planned. I'm meeting more contractors tomorrow, and the week that follows. On top of all these, I have to rush for lectures and meet assignment deadlines. So yeap... forgive me for MIA-ing. Checking back soon!

Spa. Skinny dip. Sun. Spice. Nice. Tropics. Live. Laugh. Love. Adventure. Villa. Private. Insane. Wild. Wish you were here. Walking on sunshine.

Going away

My beloved Hubby booked us the next available weekend flight out of Singapore, but not before attending the Babies' functions over the past weekend.
This time, it'll just be the 2 of us, going to a foreign island, locked away in our secret paradise.


Cheers & happy weekend~

Home schweeet home

Where many more fond childhood memories will form. Not from falling off the slide I hope!

I don't know about you, but I love balconies! BBQs, inflatable kiddy (and doggy) pool-parties, sipping bubblies.... You get the idea.

View from our balcony

The place where cooking misadventures will begin.

Welcome home.

By the way, the navy blue ruffled blouse I was wearing is from Polkadotpigs.

Only $26 mailed. Add $2.50 for Registered mail. The girls were very friendly and prompt in my email replies, which made my first online order from them very pleasant.
My shorts are from Osmose at Wisma and cost only $29. Everything below $60. A real bargain if you ask me ;)

Long Bar

Paul's wife, A, and Morgan have gone back to Thailand to settle some domestic issues so after some sofa-shopping today, we headed over to Long Bar at Raffles Hotel to meet Paul for a fix.

The boys had Singapore Sling while I had my favourite...


We were probably the only Asians in the entire bar. Talk about minority group in our own country.

The culture here is, you stuff yourself with peanuts and wash down with booze... and then throw the peanut shells on the floor. Initially I was hesitant to dirty the floor, but Paul chided me and said "Go on! Because this' the only place in SG you wont get fined for littering!"

my organised mess.

If this image is blur, you are drunk!!!

Black halter blouse: from a shop in Chinatown
Black corporate shorts: Zara
Bag: Balenciaga Anthracite Part-time
Belt: Hermes epsom leather (this color is) Gold belt with gold buckle.
*** edit to add: The belt costs SGD$1050, correct at time of posting. But Gold is currently OOS as it was the last piece at time of purchase in both Liat Towers and Ngee Ann City. Left colors like Bleu Jean and black.

Hope you are having a great weekend, because we certainly are.
For a couple who's getting the keys to their new home in a week, we're super slack, because we havent even decided on a sofa set yet!
Either the head-rest is too short, making your neck strain just to sit the couch, or the shape/size is not right. ARGH.. Hubby says I'm too fussy.... but no choice lah, for the $$ you spend on purchases like this, better be fussy and satisfied instead of shoddy and regretful right?

Have a great one!

Steamboat dinner with my Family

Went for steamboat dinner tonight with my Aunt LY, Grandma, brother JJ and his gf Liping.... and of course, my boys.
It's a rooftop steamboat at AMK central. The spread is decent with my favourite shelled cockles and prawns.
Unlike most steamboats I've been to, due to its outdoor rooftop concept and a huge industrial fan, the venue is actually very airy and well-ventilated. We enjoyed ourselves eating and laughing and didn't sweat one bit!

Kai and his favourite person in the world

The contrast between young and old is compelling

The it couple

After dinner at the playground

I absolutely adore my family!
This weekend, we'll be busy sourcing/confirming our sofa, refrigerator, etc etc... and we have not one but TWO baby functions to attend - my niece's 1st birthday and Andy's distant nephew's full month shower.
It's gonna be a busy weekend.

Kai came home from school not feeling tired, so instead of napping, he asked me to take out his paint materials, and I obliged.

Our beloved Border collie is supervising his baby brother :D
