Mummy's Day Out: Sheraton Towers.

Motherhood is stressful, so we Mummies need to have some "time out", all by ourselves!
It doesn't have to be anywhere special or any special occasion, just a simple day to simply spend time without our kids or husbands.
Guess where I went with my fantastic colleagues today?
We went for high tea at Sheraton Towers!
It's organised by KKH for working Mums, expectant mums, and there was a talk on perinatal depression.

With cutesy handmade door gifts.

And there was a fun photo booth where we took crazy photos!

Outfit of the day
Little black dress: Zara. I love the embroidered flowers all over this mini dress.
Bag: Chanel
Pearl necklace: Chanel

Watch: Cartier Santos
Shoes: Ferragamo Glory kitten heels
 I love my fabulous colleagues. I love my job and most of all, I am thankful for having gainful employment.
I believe that working has allowed me to retain my sanity, and therefore allowing me to be the Mum and wife I would like to be to my family.
I enjoy spending my hard-earned money on the kids, be it for their recreation or academic purposes. 
No Mummy is perfect. We all make mistakes at some point when it comes to deciding the best for our children. We have lost our temper, we have broken our own rules, we have shed tears. 
Motherhood is a journey that we share, so we should not pit ourselves against one another.
 Always be the best Mummy you want to be, not what others expect you to be!

School excursion: SEA Aquarium, RWS.

I accompanied Adam on his school field trip to SEA Aquarium today.
It was an exhausting but enriching experience for Adam and I alike.
Really salute the teachers for their diligence and dedication in ensuring the excursion was a fun and educational trip for the children.
I don't think I can survive one day being a pre-school teacher!
All that shouting instructions, keeping the children orderly, making sure nobody gets lost inside the dark aquarium..... no mean feat.
On the other hand, I really treasured my opportunity to go with Adam. As a matter of fact, I would never have made it today if not for Adam's teacher calling me up to go.
At least now I get to witness how Adam behaves in the presence of his peers and figures of authority.
All in all a good experience.

I'm clearing my leave and spending more time with the children.
They are simply growing up too fast.
It's really not easy juggling family and work and trying to find the balance.
I may not be the best mother in the world. Some days I feel motivated, some days I feel lazy.
There are even days when I feel resentful and tempted to give the kids away for a small token.
But at the end of the day, I try my best to be the best Mummy I can be to my kids.

A trip to Science Centre.

After some weeks of deliberating, which I also cannot remember why, we finally made our trip to Science Centre today.
I've not been there in decades since my school excursions in Primary school!
Adam wanted to see Dinosaurs, which was mainly the reason why we were there.

There's a water play area for kids as well so bring along your towels and extra clothes

What is Adam scrutinising ?

Creepy crawlies!

He was most fascinated with these infrastructure-building stuff so we ended up buying a set.
He refused to leave and there we were, armed with $56 worth of tickets to the Dinosaur exhibit and he didn't want to go.
So we promised him we would go back to this after the exhibit and if he still liked them we would buy one (which he did).
And guess who was the one who ended up fixing the tiny parts back home?

Inside "Titans of the past" exhibit 

By the time we got to Tyrannosaurus Rex, Adam was afraid and kept bugging us to leave.
He said the dinosaurs were huge and scary and they would eat us if we stood too closely.
We were done with the exhibition in less than 40 minutes.
Sorry dinosaurs, looks like we won't be missing you anytime soon.
