2 of my favouritest

Went to Resort World with 2 of my favouritest people in this world.
What a tiring day it was, and to prove myself wrong - my red stilettos are not made for walking!

Hershey Chocolate World

Shopping at SG's 1st ever VS outlet

VS loot!

After all that feet-abusing, we headed to Vivo City for lunch, where we were joined by Uncle Ramesh... Afterwhich, Andy brought me to get my diamonds - dangling Chanel CC earrings and a pendant. Now this Happy camper needs to wait 3 weeks ^__^


I'm too excited to sleep. Partly because I'll be going to Resort World with my sista Meena tomorrow for some girly good time, and also because the Hubby will be bringing me to get my DIAMONDS done. *bling bling*

Chanel diamond dangling earrings and a new diamond pendant. I can't wait!
Just in time for: Mother's Day 9 May 2010, and Kai's first birthday party ^__^

Baby Kai is growing up so much, so fast. He has developed individuality and his own preferences, whether I like it or not. And I, on the other hand, has gotten quite used to the idea that my Little Prince is no longer the teeny weeny 2.73kg bun that popped right out of my oven.

Sometimes I miss so much his wrinkled skin and milky smell, yet other times I can't wait to run at the playground with him, throwing balls to our dogs.

I am also thankful to have a wonderful Hubby who does the bottle-washing, sterilising, feeding, bathing and basically, ALL the chores of babysitting! He's brilliant with Baby Kai, just as long as he doesn't use his beardie to rub against Kai's face (he hates that!)

He is at times naughty, yes, he throws tantrums and kicks his legs rigorously in the air if he doesnt get his way, and yes we have our occasional food fights when all he wants to eat are fruits and not yucky porridge (don't tell Grandma!)... but Daddy & Mummy love him all the same.

I can't be happier. I'm having the best time in my life. Thank God for blessing us :)

Tornado-torn house

When Baby A was about 8 mths old, he started standing up. Then he started cruising and has been cruising ever since. He cruises along his cot, the tables, our beds, and has recently graduated to pulling things off em.
This morning, he cruised in his cot to my dresser and pulled off my entire makeup drawer, smashing my perfume bottles and shattering my glass makeupbrush-holder in the process.
On Saturday, I was home alone with him when he broke a vase and Alice's ceramic bowl.

But it's ok. I don't use much perfume now anyway, and I can always get a new brush holder, and a dog bowl. Made of plastic please.

Meanwhile, here's a photo of our broken wall, where our curtain rail used to hang. It came off when Baby A hauled himself up from lying to standing position using our unlucky curtain, when he was 9 mths old. When the curtain came tumbling down with the rail, so did the poor Baby. But of course, all attention went to the baby instead of the wall. Smart ploy I say.

They warned that once the baby comes, I will have no time for my dogs, so it's better to give the dogs away. But I beg to differ. Once the baby came, I have no time for the baby! Because my dogs can pretty much take care of themselves, the baby can't. 24 hours is never quite enough for a baby. Nor myself.

God. I need a bigger diamond pendant. And the brand new glistening Omega mother-of-pearl face watch. And that Martello gourmet coffee maker. Really. Really.

Adam's Birthday Banner

Customising Adam's banner was met with some glitches, particularly with a highly-raved printing company who has printed many children's birthday banners.

I shan't disclose that company name for privacy reasons, but he wanted to charge me additional $10 for "designing fee" - which was really to crop away the background of my original photo. I obligingly agreed to the additional charge, but the final draft sent to me was CRAP.

Nevermind that I couldn't customise the banner because the guy told me that all the available design templates are already on the web, but the cropping was done shabbily and made Kai's head look out of shape. How can anyone say yes to this lousy excuse of an artwork I really am clueless.
This isn't to say all moms should avoid this company, I have read some positive feedback hence I had emailed them, but maybe I'm the unlucky one. Shrug. Move on.

Back to the topic.
I was met with no choice but to design my own banner, and 'cuse me, I think I can do a better job at cropping.

So yeah this is gonna be Baby Kai's birthday banner, and we're gonna bring it to a printer to have it done. I just hope I got the dimensions right :D

It was a Good Friday

Hubby booked us a couple spa treatment at Spa Sauvignon. What a gem!
Did a red-wine body scrub and bodywrap followed by massage. The Malay aunty who massaged me was terrific - she pounded and kneaded on my muscles and I emerged a brand new me :D

After the spa, we headed to Robinsons sale again. 2 days in a row. Woah.
Then we headed home to fetch Kai and went for dinner with Grandparents Tan, and to Giant hypermart for late night grocery shopping.

We ended the night by watching Marley & Me on DVD and I fell asleep halfway. When I next opened my eyes, it was 8.30am today and Baby Kai was chuckling at me in his cot, holding my mascara that he took from the drawer next to his cot and waving the wand at me triumphantly.
He has mastered the skill of standing at the edge of his cot and pulling out my makeup drawer, emptying the contents inside. (One morning, Andy called me at work and asked if my electric eyelash curler comes with a cap because Kai was trying to eat it and thankfully it had no cap, not that the baby had devoured it).

Anyways, I promised myself that I would catch up with lost sleep when he is napping but here I am typing furiously on my laptop, while the carrots are steaming on the stove for his lunch. Yawn.
Plan later: Go to the printer's to get his birthday banner printed (more about the banner later), buy diapers, go to Kiddy Palace. That's all on our to-do list today.

Robinsons Members Sale this weekend

It's every woman's favourite word - S A L E !
At Robinsons Centrepoint this weekend. For shopaholic mummies like myself, it is not to be missed, even more so if you are a member because of the discounts on top of usual discounts. How great is that? DOn't know where to go this long weekend? Head down to Robinsons Centrepoint then ;)

I went with Aunty Meena and she went crazy with all the newborn sleepsuits, booties, mittens. How reminiscent of those days when Baby Kai was still a newborn!
And oh, I love their Eath Baby organic bath product range as well and I bought a few bottles to stock up.

Check out Baby Kai's new toys. He seems delighted! Thanks to my colleague Jenny who recommended the Aqua Doodle which leaves no mess after water ink dries up :)

Busy baby and the busy bodies!

Last but not least, I wanted to buy this Little Tikes coupe car but it was too bulky & heavy for me to lug home on my own. Sigh! :(

This is officially on Baby Kai's BIRTHDAY WISHLIST. Can some kind soul please buy it for him? :P

Sunday: Baby Kai goes to Universal Studios

Haha kind of..
After attending Kai's cousin Huihui's 1st birthday, Daddy & Mummy brought our darling son to Resort World Sentosa.
It was not as crowded as we imagined, maybe because Singaporeans need to pay $100 to enter the Casino? Haven't gamble already lost $100... Zzzz.
We sure are glad we signed up for our Crown Casino membership back in Melbourne, cos that's FREE lifetime membership and we are entitled to free parking and discounts in the entire Crown complex!

Mummy's lil Prince Charming

Mummy's boys

I ditched my original idea of red stilettos-with-skinny-jeans combi for my trusty pair of Ferragamo ballet flats, which I'm glad I did cos of all the walking!

Other than the unforgiving weather, we did enjoy ourselves, and Baby Kai is wearing a Zara humour tee which says "My Mum is prettier than your mum" :P
I thought the slogan was just pure fun, until a dear friend pointed out that perhaps it was apt for a certain copycat who's not just that, but rather, a thief who's always stealing my ideas and style. Didn't occur to me then... Oops!
I'm not so mean, really! So anyways, we ended the day by having dinner at Changi Airport T3.

What a day it has been for us. Good night folks!

Sunday: Baby Kai goes to his cousin's 1st

The Birthday girl:

Thanks for the great food and fun time, Baby Kai enjoyed himself very much!
After the party, we brought him to RW. More about that in another post!

Laundry service

I'm gonna show this pic to his gf next time LOL
On a bright and happy Sunday morning, Mummy's lil darling is helping with the laundry. Hahaha!
Can you see the heap of clothes in the background? That's what life with a baby is - not worth getting upset about dishes not washed, laundry not done. Guess we just have to buy more clothes! LOL
Baby Kai has taught us to lighten & loosen up and not sweat the small stuff :)

Ingredients of Diaper Cakes

Hi everyone! The week has been hectic for me so my apologies for the short absence!
I had school every night of the week, and I saw very little of Baby Kai. When I came home, he was sleeping, when I left for work, he was still asleep. Can you imagine my heartache?

Well, it's all over now, I managed to finish a huge chunk of one of my essays, thank God for that!

And now to answer all the Mommies' emails!
I've received numerous emails pertaining to the ingredients for the diaper cakes, and pardon me for not replying your emails (because of you know why).. so here goes:

- 10 pc disposable diapers
- 1 hooded towel
- 5 pairs baby socks
- 1 wash cloth

- 32 pc disposable diapers
- 1 pink dress
- 1 pair pink sandals
- 1 hair clip

Didn't realise that it's a longggg weekend next week, else I would've arranged a short trip with Hubby and Baby Kai! But I have to say, it's near-impossible with my school and work.

Okays enough ranting. Ciao folks :D
