Happy 5th birthday, Emmalyn!

It has been a year of learning - learning to be a big sister, learning to be a preschooler!

Traveling safe in CYBEX Sirona Plus car seat

Because you never know who's behind the wheels. 

30 mins of wailing, that's how long Avalyn could cry in the car when she was young. She dislikes being tied up in the car seat and no amount of coaxing could help soothe her. And that lasted a few months. Things got better, she cries lesser but car seat is still not her favourite. We don't know if it's because the hand down car seat was uncomfortable or she was just crying for me to carry her as I sit next to her. Hubby always think it's me because Avalyn often don't cry until I hop on the car when he picked them first before me.

Over the past year, all four of us just went through this ordeal as we had to. We had to because Hubby fetches them alone a lot and it is only possible with car seats. We had to because it's safer. Thankfully, Emmalyn has been very patient towards all her wailing. Never once she asked her to keep quiet, only failed attempt of gentle consolation.

She was almost outgrowing the old infant car seat, so we replaced it with CYBEX Sirona plus a month ago. After changing it, we are getting so more smiles and peace though there are still some misses where she cries for attention. I believe it's surely more comfortable for her now. She also waved goodbye and flying kisses to me when I alighted from the back seat. Whee, happy dance! Now, she sits behind with Emma (in another car seat)  and I finally claimed back my front seat! Praying hard that she would grow to love her car seat more!

Review of Vasa Blå by Sudio

Guest post by my  "tech-ier" better half, Thomas Ng

The Vasa Blå by Sudio or pocket blue in English literally means Bluetooth in your Pocket. And, we were very excited as it is our first time owning a Bluetooth earpiece in Rose Gold White. Thank you Sudio!

According to Sudio website, the Vasa Blå sound signature is delivered by a carefully tuned driver and amplifier. The combination of driver and amplifier is able to separate the sound of every instrument in every song, thereby giving the listener a true studio experience. It's really light - 14g (housing), covers 10m range and has 9 hours of battery time span.

With its elegant design and high quality specifications, I was totally sold! But, read on to see what my "tech-ier" better half has to say about it!

While we’re not as techy as other reviewers, we like to focus more on real practical usage.

Avalyn's first birthday party - Animal Barn theme

2 months late! I really shouldn't delay Avalyn's 1st birthday post any longer!

The first year with 2 little ones was more challenging than I like. With increased workload at office and home, I was really pretty low on energy to plan a big party. I was even toying of doing away with it but I knew I had to be fair to Avalyn. We skipped Avalyn's baby shower because of family matters and shouldn't skip her 1st birthday. So, we finally decided to hold one at the function room of my church leaders' place a month before the party and go fuss-free!

However, the party turned out nothing like what we'd planned, and in fact it was quite an eventful one - just like how Avalyn arrived more than a year ago!

Choosing baby carrier x Soul Singapore

After trying out 5 baby carriers, 3 different brands and close to 4 years of baby wearing, I came to a conclusion - baby wearing is super useful but it's not easy to choose a carrier. I'm sure the search for a perfect carrier is even more daunting to new mummies.

Somewhere over the rainbow...

Every picture tells a story, and this is ours.

Not a perfect life I want to depict, but part of my life story that I really love to share.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa - Club TIny Package

Life as a working mum with 2 little ones is always packed and rushing. So, it's always nice to set aside some time for a short break with a nice staycation!

Recently, we had a staycation at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa and the stay was amazing! Since it was a little rainy, we got to spend a little more time in the family suite and enjoyed every bits of the Club Tiny Kids Experience!
