Sorry for the lack of post recently, I hope everyone had a great long weekend despite the worsening haze. My poor little guy was feeling grouchy from the lack of outdoor activities and recovering from a terrible flu which he also passed to me. Luckily i have lots of interesting DIY activities at home to keep him entertained. I have been wanting to update my blog more frequently and share the home learning activities that i do with my little guy but have been busy watching a very interesting Chinese drama "The Journey of Love" in addition to entertaining my little king of course ;) The drama is based on a popular romance novel and i have been reading the novel since the drama ended last week. I love its touching love story and purchased the novel online. I must share more about the drama soon and my recent online shopping purchases! I love online shopping and letting my fingers do all the working hehe :)
It has been quite sometime since i did a post about the skincare products that i love. I still love to read up on the latest skincare products and now that I'm reaching my mid 30s soon, anti-aging skincare products have become an essential part of my skincare routine. My top favourite brand for anti-aging products is definitely SK-II.
I have been using their award winning and best selling anti-aging cream SK-II Stempower as a night moisturiser for several months and i love that it helps to keep my skin well hydrated. I can't wait to try out other products in the series especially the eye cream as i have been skipping that step since giving birth and busy looking after boy. For those not familiar with SK-II Stempower, it is a rich cream that gives your skin all the benefits it needs. I use it together with my Facial Treatment Essence and I like that it has a light texture and absorbs easily into the skin. It also does not feel greasy.
Do give it a try if you are looking for a reliable anti-aging cream from a reputable skincare brand and i hope that the haze will go away soon and we can all enjoy the outdoors :)
For those who stays in the north, do check out this newly opened western food restaurant (located at level 1, Sembawang Shopping Centre, next to the entrance) which i tried with my family earlier while out jogging. We love that it has a small play area for kids and my boy enjoyed playing with the Ikea play kitchen and train set while waiting for our order.
We ordered a kids meal for our boy and the portion was just right and i like that we can choose grilled meat instead of fried which is healthier. Dinner was great and we will definitely be back again :)
I was doing some online shopping and saw some lovely kimono tops from Zalora. I find it more convenient to shop online as I'm able to shop in peace when my boy sleeps. The little guy dislikes going shopping unless it is for toys ;) He loves the outdoor and i try to bring him out daily for playdates at the playground or sand play at the beach. For those who loves to shop online, do check out the items that caught my attention below. Happy shopping :)
I brought my little guy to Orchard today to dine at our favourite Japanese restaurant Tampopo. My little guy is a huge Lego fan and he can spend long period of time on his own playing with his Lego blocks which gives mummy more time to catch up on the endless household chores ;)
We went to the newly opened Bricks World at Ngee Ann City and the staff there was really helpful and gave me useful informations on which Lego set would be more suitable and is on discount :) My little guy was so pleased with his purchase and insisted on carrying the box on his own. Do check out the store and they have a little area for kids to play with the blocks which my little guy loves.
It has been a while since i cooked pasta and decided to cook for my boy as he loves eating pasta from Pastamania. Glad that he enjoys eating my home cooked carbonara pasta with broccoli, cheese sausages and apple ham. Happy weekend everyone :)
My little guy has been asking me to bring him to Sembawang Park to play sand several times and i finally brought him there earlier since the weather was bright and sunny. He had a great time running around the park exploring and enjoying the sea breeze with a new doggie friend. It was a pity the boardwalk was under construction and he could not take a nice stroll there. I thought the construction was long completed and its strange that its under construction again. I was so happy to see my little guy enjoying himself and outdoor play is definitely the best for kids :)
Sorry for the lack of posts recently as i have been busy lately taking care of my boy and cooking for him since he prefers to eat home cooked food nowadays. He only loves to eat Japanese food when we dine out. The little guy really has a mind of his own and constantly amazes us with the things that he says.
He was hospitalised for 2 nights recently for bronchitis and the poor boy lost a lot of weight as he did not have much appetite and i'm glad that he has recovered and is his usual happy go lucky self :) We were really thankful that we bought full coverage insurance for him and did not have to pay for his hospital stay at Thomson Medical Centre. We were able to have a comfortable stay there as we got a single room. The first thing that new parents should do is definitely to buy full insurance coverage for your baby.
We have also been busy visiting schools as he will be going school next year and have finally found a school that has lot of outdoor activities and will let my boy learn through play. We want him to enjoy his childhood and do not wish to stress him and place him in a place that only focuses on academic. He also likes the school environment and has been telling us that he wants to go to that school. I really hope that he will have fun in school and i'm planning to do more D.I.Y home learning activities with him for the rest of the year. You can find picture of our first D.I.Y. activities above and the theme for the week is his favorite cat.
