Goodbye 2008!

Looking back to these 12 pictures of Chloe, taken monthly throughout the year 2008, makes me feelin' kinda 舍不得 really...

However, let's bid goodbye to 2008 and welcome 2009 with arms wide open!

Dealing With Grouchy Baby: A Quick Survival Guide

Hello.. I'm a mother of one. My girl is now around 14mths. Here I'll give some quick survival tips on how to save the day when you are out in the crowd and your kid started to rebel.

For example, your kid started to whine, shout and throw tantrums in the restaurant..

Find something anything handy and within reach to distract her..
Anything could be transformed into the magic tool!

In this pictured situation, I used my straw to enlighten her..

To her, drinking via my straw has somehow made her (plain) water became sooo delectable. So you gotta play along with it.. and exaggerated too, "Oh.. so yummy!"

You might have that evilish winning laughter within you..
Ah.. so long she could keep quiet, rite?

If that didn't work well... you could let your kid out to roam around...

Or bring her outdoor in the vicinity, if space allows...


I hope those simple tips would come handy to you someday.

That way, you and your other half would only savour the lovely meals like these in peace! Enjoy! :)

I Got Lucky!

Here is a big shout out to Wynn from zakkaArt for the handmade mini pouch.

I first participated in such online giveaway and I got lucky :) This lovely pouch came right in time for Christmas.

Check out more of her fabolous handmade works here.

Let's Unwrap!!


Thanks to Chloe, we received lotsa lovely Christmas presents this year. Below are some shots taken during our unwrapping sessions. It's just between Chloe and I; oh we had so much fun! Hubby chose to catch up with his sleep, knowing that none of the gifts was actually meant for him haha!

The Midnight Christmas Party

After the Christmas eve's charity event, we bounced to Costa Sands Resort to join another Christmas (after) party.

It was past 1 am when we reached. The crowd has left, leaving only close friends and family of the host. The place was amazing, it was so breezy and cosy. Chloe was wide awake too! She has got up from her recharge nap during the countdown. We hope to join the party again next year ;)

Some photos to share:


"Had a lil' too much of drinks during the holiday.."

This seafood restaurant, Hooked!, has been popping up in quite a lot of food review search engines. We were glad to try it out some 2 weeks back at The Rail Mall, Upp Bukit Timah. (Now they have one outlet at Upper Thomson too!)

My say, great variety of seafood with reasonable price. Good food presentation too. It'd be better if they could hire more staffs to help though :)

OK. Let the pictures speak for themselves!

Pardon me for I have forgotten all their names :P

Our appetizer, baked potato with salmon (?)

Asparagus wrapped in salmon

Fish spaghetti (?) lol

Baked codfish

Our complimentary dessert, brownies with vanilla ice cream

I'd certainly go back for more! Yumz..
