The Japan Professional Deodorant QB

May 23, 2016 in Commercial Break 0 Cheesed

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 […]

Baby #1 here, on 16th June 2014. Baby #2. Thank you for coming to this world. ^^   When I entered my 38th week of pregnancy, I started panicking. The baby was head down but she was still posterior, and showing no sign of engaging. It was exactly the same the first time around with […]

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?!?!?! During my first pregnancy I gained a total of 8KG, and this time I think it is pretty similar. While it does sound a liiiiitle enviable, my pregnancy isn’t without any problems. In […]

My “KonMari” wardrobe makeover

April 30, 2016 in Useless fashion 22 Cheesed

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 […]

Eat Tokyo Spring 2016

It’s the food post again!!! You can read my past Tokyo food posts under this category.   Anyway, guilty confession: I did zero cooking this time around T___T. Not even for Junya T___T.

Final post on my trip to Tohoku! On the last day, i left Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture and headed to Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture.
