Celebrating My Boy's 1st Birthday @ Sea Aquarium - Ocean Restaurant

We celebrated Baby J's 1st birthday last week and had a lovely family lunch at Ocean Restaurant. Lunch was really delicious and Baby J loves the place. He had a great time looking at the fishes and was trying to make friends with some kids who were admiring the fishes near the platform with him. My baby is really growing up and have been practicing walking at home by holding on to the furnitures. I can't wait for him to start walking on his own :) Happy birthday my dear boy and mummy and daddy love you and hope that you will stay happy and healthy always and we look forward to bringing you on more fun outings. Hmm maybe the zoo next hehe ;)

Korean Drama - My Love From Another Star

I have not had the time to update my blog recently as Baby J has not been feeling well and i have been busy taking care of him. I have also been hooked to this really interesting Korean drama "My Love From Another Star" starring Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun and have been watching the drama online whenever Baby J is sleeping.


The drama has recently ended in Korea and gotten really good ratings. It is also really popular with viewers from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. I love the touching and sweet love story of the main characters Do Min Joon (Kim Soo Hyun) and Cheon Song Yi (Jeon Ji Hyun) and spending a few hours nightly watching the drama really helps me to relax after a tiring day taking care of a very needy and grouchy baby. Really hopes my poor baby will get well soon. I have been listening to the drama soundtrack daily and my favorite songs are "My Destiny" and "In Front Of Your House" and you can check out the song MVs below. 



Actor Kim Soo Hyun has won over a lot of female viewer's hearts, including mine hehe ;) with his portrayal of the perfect boyfriend Do Min Joon who is an alien that landed on Earth 400 years ago during the Joseon Dynasty period. Do Min Joon possesses a near perfect appearance and enhanced physical abilities involving his vision, hearing and speed. He holds a cynical view to human beings. Deciding that emotions are nothing but fantasies that drag human beings into folly and evil, he scorns the mortal idea of love. And so far, he has had no reason to change his mind. But he starts to have second thoughts when he meets the stunning and attractive actress Cheon Song Yi three months before he is finally able to return to his own planet. You can go to Dramabeans to find out more about the drama :)

Tasty & Healthy Baby Food From Petit Bowl


Frozen meals from Petit Bowl in my freezer

I mentioned in my previous post about purchasing frozen baby food online from Petit Bowl and i'm so glad that baby J has been enjoying his Petit Bowl meals. I'm so happy that he has also started to enjoy eating beef which he hates in the past. The beef dishes from Petit Bowl are really delicious unlike the bottled beef baby food i fed baby J. I have been feeding baby J a lot of Petit Bowl meals while we are out visiting this Chinese New Year as it is so convenient to prepare and bring it out. 

Happy and satisfied baby J after enjoying his Petit Bowl meals :)

My baby will be 1 year old next month and he has been showing a lot of interest in the food we are having and i have been hoping to find the time to prepare more variety of food for him as he eats fish or chicken porridge with vegetables daily. However he has developed separation anxiety recently and sticks closely to me at times and refused to play on his own and i have difficulty spending too much time preparing his meals for him. I wanted to introduce other meat dishes like beef, pasta to his daily meals and I was so happy to have discovered Petit Bowl from reading past issues of Young Parents Magazines. 


Hidden Vegetable Pasta

Blueberry Yogurt

I decided to order from Petit Bowl as i love that their meals contains no salt, sugar, MSG and their delivery services have been really prompt and i usually receives my orders within 2 days of ordering online. Baby J's top favorites are their Blueberry Yogurt, Braised Beef & Barley Pot, Hidden Vegetable Pasta and Sole Fish Casserole with rice and he finishes everything up which makes his daddy and mummy very happy :) I'm so glad and thankful that my boy is a little foodie like his mummy.


Its really easy and convenient to prepare the meals and i just steam the food for about 20 minutes and add some milk or water to his casserole with rice so that its like porridge and not too dry. The meals from Petit Bowl smells really good and hubby could not resist eating some too. I have just received my 3rd order of another 2 weeks worth of meals for baby J today. However some of baby J's favorite dishes like the hidden vegetable pasta and braised beef & barley pot were sold out and hopefully there will be new stocks soon and i can order more for him.

Chinese Drama 兰陵王 Prince of Lan Ling OST - 手掌心MV (Della丁噹)


I have been watching this 2013 Chinese period drama "兰陵王 Prince of Lan Ling" and its a really entertaining and touching romance drama. I love the beautiful love story between Ariel Lin's character (Yang Xue Wu) and Feng Shao Feng (Prince Lan Ling). Daniel Chan's portrayal of Yuwen Yong, King of Northern Zhou was really good and i could not help liking his character more than the main character, the Prince of Lan Ling. He did a great job in acting out the evil and human side of Yuwen Yong making viewers fond of his character even though he is supposed to be one of the baddies in the show.



The ending theme song by Della Ding Dang is really nice and i just purchased the song from iTunes store. You can check out the song MV below and watch the drama online at (http://sugoideas.com/idol-dramas/2013drama/prince-of-lanling-蘭陵王/).

I Love Shopping Online For My Baby @ Le Petit Society :)

I love the clothes at Le Petit Society and took advantage of their discount code ONEYEAR from their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/lepetitsociety) to purchase some lovely items for my baby. Le Petit Society's founders are Singaporean although their HQ is in Hong Kong. The label combines Asian flair with European quality for an effortlessly cool look that is created entirely here in Asia. Shopping on their website was a breeze and they have very helpful size guides for shoppers. I also love shopping online at Le Petit Society as they offer free shipping across Asia. 



Here are the items which i ordered for baby J and i can't wait to receive my purchases soon :)





They have a pop-up stall at Citylink Mall (next to Garrett Popcorn), 1-10 pm today and tomorrow and fellow mummies can do your Chinese New Year shoppings for your little ones there if you are in the area. Happy Shopping :)

Happy 10 months Old To My Beloved Baby J :)


Time flies when you are raising kids and i can't believe my baby will be 1 year old in 2 months time. Hubby and i have not decided yet if we are going to have a birthday party for him as we have been thinking that at 1 year old he will not  really know how to enjoy the party and it will also be difficult to plan the party around his nap time. He is still taking 2 naps daily (which mummy feels thankful for as it is the only time i can catch up on housework, korea and Japanese dramas, reading the newspapers, blog and other miscellaneous stuff) and gets cranky if he does not get enough sleep. He is a light sleeper like me and wakes up easily if there are loud noises etc.

We are contemplating going for a simple family staycation maybe at Sentosa and bringing him to the Universal Studio and Sea Aquarium. Frankly i would rather focus on him during his special day than spend time entertaining relatives and friends (which we will be doing during Chinese New Year) and we can always have a big birthday celebration for him with all our loved ones when he is older and have friends from school.

Milestone wise, he is able to say Mama, Papa, dada and nene although there are days where he does not say a single word. Depends on his mood but he will always call for mama when he is upset and wish to be carried :) He is a morning baby and wakes up bright and early daily. He loves to go for long early morning walks in his stroller but dislikes going to air conditioned shopping malls unless i carry him using my ergo baby carrier which means more online shopping for me recently haha ;) He prefers to sleep on his tummy nowadays and is constantly practicing how to crawl sometimes in the middle of the night  However he has not perfected his skill yet and he is a determined and hardworking baby and is constantly trying. He is able to raise himself up while laying down and sit up on his own this month. He loves to stand holding my hands and try to walk tiny steps. Well done baby!

We are thinking of signing him up for the Bambino classes at Gymnademics as its physical and intellectual activities should be helpful for his developments. It will also give him a chance to mix around with other babies his age once a week but it is a challenge finding a schedule that fits his nap time. 

Meals wise, he loves his food and veggies and i have started feeding him more variety of food but salt, sugar and MSG are still big NO NO before 1 year old if possible. I'm glad that he appreciates the meat cum veggies porridge that i cooks for him during the weekdays and meals from Petit Bowl during the weekends. He also loves eating fruits and snacks from Happy Baby.

I'm thankful that i'm able to spend time daily with baby J although it can be challenging at times when he is cranky from teething or just in a needy mood. I  love to see his sweet and loving smile when i read him some of his favorite books and i have been borrowing lot of books from the library to read to him daily. Mummy and daddy loves you my dear boy and we are going to have lot of fun and exciting adventures together :) Be a good boy and stay healthy and happy always.
