YOGA SEEDS - my First Yoga lesson!

Since the beginning of this new decade, I resigned from my long-time employment as a nurse in KK Hospital.
It would have been my ninth year there, it was a love-hate relationship I had with my work.
I used to enjoy what I did, until there came a point where I was constantly asking myself if that was what I would be doing for the rest of my life. My answer was No.
If I didn't need the money, would I still be working there? No.
In ten years, do I see myself still working there? No.

I decided to resign. With no plans.
I was scared, terrified. But I knew I had to do it for goodness' sake. LOL
I needed to take a break to find my feet again, to find my directions.

My farewell party on my last day:

Sad to leave my colleagues behind but there, I am finally free!

There were many things I always wanted to try but couldn't find the time when I was working full-time.
One of them is YOGA.
Even though I held an 8-to-5 job in KKH, evenings were a mad rush for me to rush home, make sure my kids have dinner, playground time, shower, finish up any pending homework which they need help in, prepare for the next day's school / CCA/ tuition if any etc etc, it was like learning how to fly a plane in 2 hours.
My day-to-day life was so mad hectic/ mundane/stressful/rushed and I absolutely RESENTED it.

SO NOW, I can finally start on learning something new - learning Yoga at YOGA SEEDS.

Yay to Phase 2 of Circuit Breaker~!

Located at Bishan Park, a north-central location, it was quite easy for us to get there.

: 1384 Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, Singapore 569932.
Head to Bishan Park CARPARK A.
Once you are in the carpark, head left all the way past Aramsa Garden Spa and The Bund and you will find Yoga Seeds.

Welcome to the Shala :)
The class was live-streamed for members who wanted to practice in the comfort of their own homes.

Our cui faces after class :P

If you're new to yoga like me, here's a chart for easy reference on which types of Yoga is beginner-friendly.
Some house rules in Phase 2 of Circuit Breaker:

Our instructor for today's Hatha class, Melody, was very friendly and helpful in teaching us how to adjust our postures.
She also gave alternative poses if we could not achieve what the advanced yogis could.
It made newbies like hubby & me felt at ease and not at a loss of what to do like when I did Zumba for the first time - my hands-feet-eye-coordination was all over the place!

If you're unsure where / how to start with your Yoga journey, Yoga Seeds has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for newcomers.
I highly recommend you to check out Yoga Seeds on their website!
Class schedules can be found here.

We will be back for more lessons for sure!
Thank you Melody, Wendy and Vic from Yoga Seeds for this wonderful opportunity :)

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!

KKH "I wanna be famous" D&D 2013

Dinner and Dance at Marina Bay Sands with my wonderful colleagues tonight.
Super love these girls. Always laugh non-stop at work, especially with Twinkle (wearing floral dress pictured with me), my twin and partner in crime!

See my colleague Grace so unglam go and shift chair herself hehehe.

Close-up of the gold lacy dress I wore tonight. Love the details and non-sheer material of this dress from

Outfit of the night:
Etoile lace overlay dress:
Nude heels: Christian Louboutin pigalle
Bag: Chanel
Pearl earrings and pearl necklace: Chanel
 Halfway through my dinner, I received a call from Adam. He said he's waiting for me to get home and bathe him. It was 9:20pm.
When I reached home at about 10:45pm, both boys stared at me wide-eyed, not about to sleep anytime soon. I got down to bathing Adam and settling both kids into their nightly routine.
As expected, my social life at the moment is nullified.
