Lucky Me – Uncle Ringo SG50 Carnival @ Golden Jubilee

I was one of the 10 Lucky Winner for Uncle Ringo Tickets Giveaway!!

I have won myself, or rather, won Asher & Brycen a Carnival ticket worth SGD60 for this year Carnival @ Golden Jubilee! It was just so unusual for us to go such crowded places, see what parents did for the kids. 😁 the queues were long, the night was warm, the crowd was a little unbearable but the kids had a wonderful night out despite minor hiccups. 

Thank you for the tickets!  Hope to win more things for this month. ✌🏻️

Teachers’ Day Gifts – Himalaya Pink Salt Foot Soak

Again, some easy peasy DIY gifts for our dearest teachers. Easy to make but it doesn’t mean we anyhow do it. These were done with lots of love, I lugged all these back from town on my own, when I snapped a shot of my loots, together with these maison trays and containers, daddy immediately offered to send me home, told me to leave them at the store for collection on other day.

I overestimated myself, I turned away his offer and I could barely move after reaching home. I was glad I made that choices, I knew our weekends were packed (my lousy planning skill) and I knew it was impossible for me to spend our weekends on these. How I wish I could “share the scent”, the smell was heavy! I hope the teachers will love this foot soak.

Why were we did this? Really, they are the most patience teachers who are willing to work so closely with me ever! Besides this, we also made a canvas art for the school. A small one but it was 80% done by Asher.

I am crossing my fingers, hoping we will meet some kind and nice teachers when we go P1 next year.

Sambal Petai 叁巴臭豆

This is my first time cooking Sambal Petai at home.

Ben and I love this dish and few weeks back, he ordered it for me at a hawker centre, I was shocked when I found out the price. For the same amount, I would be able to have it at home for at least 5/6 times! This explained why I started cooking this dish at home. 💪💪

BBQ Night @ Northvale 

Honestly, I don’t remember when was the last time I met daddy’s colleagues. We used to meet about 3 times a year, be it a birthday party or just dinner outings. There were simply too many reshuffling over the years, a few of those I know have left the team, some left the company and went overseas. If I were to try harder to think, there wasn’t any outing for the past 4 years or so. 😒 oh well, at least someone did take note when I said we should have a meet up session so we know who are our spouses’ colleagues. 

Just too bad I was sick on that day, however, I was glad I made it to the gathering, to say hello to those I have never met, and to catch up with some. *oh yes, Ben is married and his Facebook account is real.*

SG50 NDP Celebration


We were about to leave the house to Sentosa Underwater World, then we met Alvin, our neighbour at doorstep, telling us to join the SG50 NDP celebration with Funpack distribution as well as high tea buffet spread for everyone at our estate.

Our plan was to just to drop by to collect the Funpack, but the efforts from the management committee and GRC volunteers changed our decisions. Look at the banner, balloon arch and stand, games corner, the whole event was a small one but if everyone thought like us, will the event be successful? The advisor of the GRC was around too, the young volunteers were under the hot sun helping out, and all we, the residents needed to do was to be there, to support. Daddy and I told Asher our decision to stay and he was agreeable, because he knew Niki would be there too. 

Knowing the food may not be suitable for our fussy kid, we went out for proper lunch and came back home for the event. We were grateful, thanks to the management committee and GRC members for their efforts, we did not have to go to the nearest cc to collect our SG Funpacks. 

Asher was happy as he got to pen down a line or two on the wishes card, do sand arts, get free balloon sculpture and meet some kids. 

Some said all these are unnessesary, wayang before GE2015, whatever the case is, we are thankful, for everything.

Lucky Me – Ugly Duckling 丑小鸭


Asher first watched The Ugly Duckling 丑小鸭 with his friends and teachers when he was still with Evangel Kindy, I remember it was a school excursion to the theatre. Back then, he did not share much about his experience. I was told he sat through the play, which I doubted because he did not understand much Mandarin. Last few weeks, he saw  the poster and told me he wanted to watch the play, I believe he enjoyed a lot for last semester Speech & Drama in current school, the K1 children performed it and some of the K2 children were involved too. I was hesitated, the tickets were not cheap, so can you imagine how happy I was when I won the tickets from Kids Fiesta? The play was great, very engaging, the actresses were funny and audience laughed together. I told the father, if I could turn back the time, I wouldn’t spend so much on plays when he was much younger!

After a few times here, we more or less know which corner to find a spot for photo taking, as for the father, he knows where to sip his coffee and do his work while waiting for us. Say cheese! The boy was so happy and asked if we can watch it again, let’s hope I can win more tickets for him in future.
