I'm currently hooked to this interesting romance drama based on a popular webtoon in Korea and i have been also reading the webtoon while waiting for new episodes each week. The drama soundtrack is also on my playlist and i have been listening to it during my ME time when my boy is in school :)
"Cheese In The Trap" shows the delicate relationship between a female university student Hong Seol (Kim Go-eun) and her senior Yoo Jung (Park Hae-jin). Hong-Seol does part-time jobs since her household is poor. Yoo Jung is perfect with good academics and athletics plus he is kind, however he also seems to have a dark side with some people holding grudges against him..
I went shopping for shoes with my boy today and he helped me to choose this really sweet and cute Melissa Minnie Pink shoes :) He was saying "mummy this is nice" and wanted me to get the shoes. It was love at first sight when i saw the shoes online few weeks ago and i would never have the courage to get such bright color shoes if not for J insisting that it is nice for mummy. Thank you my dear boy for having such good taste ;)
I finally have some lovely ME time to relax and enjoy a peaceful meal since my dear boy started attending Kindergarten on 4 January :) I'm glad that J has been enjoying his time in school although he keeps telling me that he misses mummy in school. He is such a sweet and gentle boy and i do miss him during the 3 hours he is in school but i'm also happy to finally have some time for myself hehe ;)
He cried during the first 2 weeks when i drop him off at school and kept saying he don't want to go school and it pains me to leave him crying with his teacher. But i know that he will be fine with his teachers who have been really nice to him and updates me on how he is doing in class when i fetched him home. I'm glad that he has finally settled down in the 3rd week and i can see him making friends and enjoying the activities in school. They have art works almost daily and my little guy loves it. He also likes water and sand play time in school and playing outdoors with his friend. I really hope that J will continue to enjoy going to school and have lot of fun playing with his friends. Stay strong my beloved boy and mummy loves you to the moon and back :) We will have lot of fun together when you are back from school ;)
My boy is a huge fan of the series and we have almost all the books. J loves getting the books for us to read to him during bedtime and we also enjoy reading the stories. You can purchase the new books from here at a special price now :) Do like the Facebook page for more updates.
One of my favourite pastimes is watching dramas after my boy has zzzz. If you are looking for a sweet and heartwarming romance drama to watch, do check out Korean drama Bubblegum :) It is the only Korean drama that captured my interest recently. I have been watching lot of Japanese dramas instead as i don't find the latest dramas showing in Korea interesting. Will blog about the Japanese dramas i'm watching if i have the time.
Bubblegum tells the story of people with deficiencies, becoming a little happier just by being with one another. It will take place in a broadcast station and a hospital. The leading man is a doctor of Eastern medicine who runs his own practice. He's someone who thinks of his mother and the heroine before himself. The leading female is a radio PD — she's impatient and clumsy, and also carries some inner pain.
You can read find out more about the drama from dramabeans. I love reading about the latest happening in Korean dramaland from there. Sometimes when i don't have time to watch the drama i'm interested in, i will just read their drama recaps. I just finished watching Bubblegum's last episode and loves its ending. I have really enjoyed following this show and i love the pairing of Lee Dong Wook and Jung Ryeo Won. I love the simple and touching love story between their characters and also the supporting casts. There is no complicated love triangles or scheming characters. I also like how there are no secrets between the main characters and they are willing to confront their true feelings for each other and work hard to stay together despite all the obstacles. We should have more of such Korean dramas :)
The songs featured in the drama are also really nice and below are some of my favourites.
I went jogging with J today after some playground time. It is one of our favourite activities whenever he is up early from nap :) We went to Sun Plaza to shop around after exercising as it was still too early for dinner and i found a perfect Christmas gift for toddlers aged 2-3 while at Duyi bookstore :) December is my favourite and happy month. I love Christmas shoppings for my loved ones as its so much fun when you chanced upon the perfect gift.
J loves to read and do jigsaw puzzles and he can manage 30 to 40 pieces puzzles on his own and i have been trying to look for more puzzles for him. I found this cute puzzle box set that comes with a lovely storybook at the Duyi and J immediately started on the puzzles after finishing dinner. The quality of the puzzles are really good and suitable for toddlers. He also loves the storybook and i'm planning to get more as Christmas presents. Do check out Duyi as they have a good selections of toys and books for children at a reasonable price ;)
While we were at Haji Lane to get J a new bike, we decided to explore the place and chanced upon a nice cafe "Shop Wonderful" opposite Tokyobike. We had a relaxing time eating its delicious cakes and tasty drinks. We love the decor of the place with all its cheery Christmas decors, warm lightings and flowers.
J loves desserts and was happily eating his cake which gives hubby and i some time to just relax and enjoy our tea time :)
I was at Daiso Sembawang Shopping Centre this morning and finally found the rice ball shaker which i have been searching for months. It is a hot product and always sold out. Was so happy that i can finally let J try to make his own tomato rice ball and meatball. Hopefully he will enjoy cooking with mummy and eat more food.
Sorry for the lack of posts as i wanted to spend more time with J before he starts attending preschool in January. We have been going for lot of fun outings to the Zoo, Universal Studios Sentosa, Sea Aquarium, Gardens by the Bay and lot of playground, scooting and cycling time and i have so much to share on my blog about fun activities you can do with your toddlers. Will try to find the time to do so hopefully soon :)
J loves outdoor activities and i have been wanting to get him a bike to replace his old Radio Flyer tricycle. It was love at first sight when i chanced upon a picture of the Little Tokyobike online few months ago and i have been wanting to get it for J. For those not familiar with the brand, you can find out more from their Facebook.
J with his beloved new bike :)
I could not resist taking more pictures of the bike when we got it home ;)
Tokyobike bicycles are designed in Tokyo - Inspired by Life - Built for City Living. From the lightness and comfort of pedaling to the simplistic design and multitude of colours, Tokyobike envisions its riders exploring their cities, enjoying themselves and taking it slow in today's fast-paced society. After all, life is always about the journey rather than the destination. Read on to find out more about why you should consider getting the Little Tokyobike for your kiddos ;)
Little Tokyobike comes with adjustable training wheels. Height of training wheels is adjustable. Training wheels can be removed.
Little Tokyobike comes with bike stand. So when training wheels are removed, the bike stand can be attached for the bike to stand on it's own. Fully covered chainguard will keep the grease off your little ones and prevent the chain from 'popping off'. Wide cushy saddle for little bum bums. Height of saddle is adjustable from approximately 49-62cm. Suitable for children aged between 3-6 yr old (approximately for height 95-120cm).
Little thick tires will give your little ones a sense of stability, espcially when they are just starting to learn to ride a bike. These hardy tires are also more resistant to punctures and has a better grip. Non-slip anti-scratch pedals ensure that children do not accidentally cut/scratch themselves on the pedals. Non-slip rubber grips paired with slim brake levers make it easier for little hands to control the bike! The shape of the handlebar flows with the natural posture of children, giving them an upright riding posture in atmost comfort.
A built-in handle on the frame makes lifting and carrying the Little Tokyobike a breeze.
Hubby was convinced too that the little Tokyoike is the perfect bike for J after i showed him all the informations about the bike which i have shared above. We brought J to check out the bikes at their store in Haji Lane and ended up bringing the bike home immediately as he was so happy with his new bike and refused to wait for delivery the next week.
Happy J test riding his new bike
Nice bicycle bag!
My little guy was so sweet and asked mummy to get the cute pink adult bike so that we can go cycling together :) I told him that mummy will get a bike and cycle with him once he is able to cycle on his own. Motivations for him to practice cycling ;) We also got him some cool accessories from the store and the staffs there were really friendly and helpful and i highly recommend that you check out the store with your kiddos.
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 :)
