Does anyone actually enjoy doing house chores?

July 14, 2016 in Pokemom / Shoutouts 17 Cheesed

I didn’t think so. Or at least I thought people who say they do were lying. I mean, there must be a reason why it is called a “chore”. Over the past few months I have learnt the art and magic of decluttering and tidying. I am 80% through tidying our house in KL, and […]

As you know, our family now commutes monthly between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Flight is not really an option since we are a family of four, including one young child and an infant. Both the danna and I are not a fan of driving (I am simply a lousy driver and the danna gets sleepy easily in […]

Junya & Sakura’s Party

June 14, 2016 in Baby 2 Cheesed

Junya probably has the saddest luck when it comes to celebrating his big days. He was born on the 11 of June, so when we celebrated his full moon, it was actually more like a birthday party for his papa, whose birthday was on the 11 July. Most of the guests invited were papa’s colleagues […]

Benefit of awesome brows

Over the past few years, many eyebrow embroidery services approached for sponsorship but I turned all of them down because… Just like hair, brows are part of fashion, and there should be no permanent alteration done to it that stays for life. Even semi-permanent embroidery stays for years. But fashion changes all the time, and you won’t […]

The weather has been so crazy hot recently, or is it just me? After giving birth, I have been staying home a lot to take care of one toddler and one baby, and even though the aircon is on, I feel like I am constantly trapped inside a sauna! I really cannot imagine other mommies who […]

Pregnancy Diet Journey

A lot of fellow moms (or mother-to-be) asked how I managed to only gain 7KG at 9 months pregnant, and what’s my secret?!?!?!

My “KonMari” wardrobe makeover

Sooooo. Everybody said that without a helper now, I will just have to put up with a messier house in exchange for a more peaceful state of mind and more family privacy. Which sounds like a fair trade off. After all our mental health is more important than a spot-free house! I thought long and […]
