Woo-hoo! The school holidays are over! 🥳 Finally I work in peace! 😅 Woes of a work-from-home mummy/housewife/entrepreneur. Haha. 🤭
Anyway, yesterday, the haze 😷 was slightly better so I quickly took the opportunity to bring the kids out to play.
Since the kids slept early at 8pm due to school tomorrow, I baked banana cake 🎂 the family's breakfast/bento today and marinated roast pork for the dinner tomorrow. 🥩
This is basically how I manage my time ⌚. By sending the kids to bed early, so I can do my work and prepare next day meals.
Like my time management? If yes, I'll share more next time. 😆
One more thing to be happy about for school holiday - PAINT YOUR NAILS!!💅⠀
Everytime when the girls know is school holiday they will asked for their nails to be painted. So vain.. Don't know like who 🤔⠀
Ahem.. Anyway, their wish is granted. Received a Korea water-based nail polish - ADORABLE, which is a safety and odorless water-based nail polish. An extremely safe formula that contains celery seed extract, which is a nail-strengthener ingredients.⠀
Safe for the kids and most importantly easy to apply and easy to remove, just peel it off! So easy to apply I just let the girls do it themselves. 😝 So I can cook dinner.🍛 Double win OK! 👍⠀
Each bottle cost $11.20 and is available at Shopee! (Link at bio)⠀

This is a heartwarming and tear-jerking movie that will tug at your heartstrings. That's how I will describe the upcoming Hong Kong show "Faraga" -《花椒之味》. Starring Sammi Cheng, Megan Lai and Li Xiao Feng. It's definitely a must watch movie if you are planning to watch with your partner or folks during this Mid-autumnz festival. The story let us rethink about family and kinship. The importance of communication and how we perceive our love towards family members.
One of the must watch reason is because Andy Lau has a cameo!! My eyes immediately light up. 😍
My friend, Wendy and I also had a good hotpot tasting by 小轩坎. They are popular in Cheng Du for their Mala soup base. Swipe left to watch my short video intro.
My favorite line in the movie: “我想和你一起”“我可以和你一起这都不重要”，重要的是一起。
Popcorn level: 🍿🍿🍿🍿 Thank you @filmgardecineplexes for the invite

成長, 成長, 我已成長， 司各脫鳘魚肝油， 陪伴我一起長大！⠀
Everyone should be SO familiar with this jingle 🎶 from Scott's that we remember that we heard it or have even eaten it when we were young! Love the thick whitish emulsion each time my mom fed me and my siblings. ⠀
But why Scott's? Our house have this rule of no sweet stuffs or candies during weekdays. But kids being kids, they will ask for sweets from time to time. Scott's is a great solution for me! Since I'm planning to give sweets, why not choose a better option? They have different flavours but I always buy the orange ones. So the kids are thrilled to enjoy the new Blackcurrent flavour! Thanks to @scottssingapore!⠀
🍬 Scott's Vitamin C Pastilles are rich in Vitamin C, which helps support your child’s immunity. It also contributes to healthy collagen formation that supports the normal function of bones, teeth, cartilage, gums, skin and blood vessels⠀
🍬 Scott's DHA Gummies with microencapsulated DHA technology, locks in the goodness of fish oil without the fishy taste and smell. It also contains Vitamin D, which is essential for healthy growth & development in children and healthy immune function.⠀
They are packed in sachets, making it easier for me to bring out for the kids to eat after their activities. Double win!😏⠀
And a million thanks to @leboxsg for the activity box! The kids had so much fun unboxing it! (swipe left to watch the video!)⠀
With so many different flavours to choose from and Halal certified, this is the best choice for your kids if they are picky or a sweet tooth lover!😍
V"Wah, u wear so Chio to market ah?" The uncle commented.
"No lah. Like that chio meh? " I wanted to see if market uncle will give me more discounts or throw in some free vegetables. "😌
Haha 'auntie mode' on whenever I go to market. This was the conversation with my friend. Honestly, I still do not know the 'dark arts' of bargaining. So I can only see the real aunties bargain and buy along with them at the same deal, haha.
With the advancements in technology, people are getting savvy. Online live auctions, group buys and online grocery delivery. Wet markets are now slowly becoming a "victim" of the recent trend. Youngsters are also avoiding the wet markets as its wet and tend to have the fishy smell. But, I love the culture of wet market, and of cos the cheap vegetables also lah!
Do you guys still go to the wet market to buy your groceries?
"I woke up like this, chio chio pretty pretty naturally".. 😌
Yeah right! Who on earth will wakeup so beautiful naturally! *shameless plug*

Just lie down for 1hr plus and you get a voluminous, pretty and long lashes that suits all occassions. 👁🗨 Wild, Sweet & Sexy. You name it, you have it! (swipe left to see!)

By the time you find out, it is too late. 😭 Well, if you have done eyelash extensions, there's NO NEED to scare.😏

"Wah, you wear so colorful 💃 today ah? " my gynae commented just before I left. "Hahaha, because I'll be attending an event later, so wear colorful mah"
Actually, I've always liked bright and loud colors. Not just because I feel the colors brings out my tanned skin, it also gives out positive vibes to people around me. 😇 Although studies have shown that colors can have some influence on how we feel or act, it still depends greatly on our beliefs and culture. ✌️ But! We cannot avoid that we, women, are genetically programmed to shopping 🛍️ and that choosing our favourite colors make us feel great! It is such an easy way to boost the happiness factor in our life! 😝 That's why they always say the Men don't get it, because their clothes is always blue, black, white and grey. 🤣
Do you know that having oily scalp during and after pregnancy is extremely common? Let’s "blame" it on hormones again!! 😜
While that is pretty common, it does not mean we should ignore our scalp! Having a good diet such as cutting down oily and fried stuff, increment of vegetables 🥦 and fruits 🍎 intake will help. We should also avoid washing our hair excessively as it may make your scalp dry, and causing the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, making your hair even more greasy and oily! 💆♀️
Not only our hormones are “partying” in our body, our asian weather is not helping too! 🥵 So recently, I also keep a bottle of A’kin Dry shampoo in my bag so I can use it to absorb extra oil and add extra volume to my hair! (Swipe left to see my chio hair)😜
It is so useful especially I’m out the whole day running errands or needing to rush to different events and picking up my girls. Fetching my girls also must stay chio ok. 😁Most importantly, there's no white powdery residue left on my hair! (Swipe left to see the video, see me flipping through my hair)

As much as we are excited about our pregnancy🤰, we also receive “welcoming” gifts such as skin sensitivity and stretch marks.🙄 All these is due to increased hormone levels, and our skin stretches as our baby grows.
Although I do not have stretch marks (for now), but that does not mean I’m being spare from the itchiness and dryness caused by my growing baby (no complaints!). Since I’m pregnant, naturally I want to reduce the use of harmful chemicals especially if you have pre-existing skin conditions or skin becoming more sensitive. 😍

In life or in parenting, we always make difficult decisions 🤔 and expecting it to be the best for us or our children. Or even, we make the assumption that this is the best for them, often using them to accomplish our dreams. 🏖️
But when things don't go as well as expected, we felt guilty, hurt, and fought hard for it, and end up feeling drained and helpless. 😥
Yesterday, I had a random discussion with my sister. She said, "Sometimes in life, we really need not fight every single battle that comes along our way. For some, it's good to just let go, learn from it and focus on healing."
It's true. After encountering lots of ups and downs in the past years in all my businesses and entrepreneurship journey, trying to fight every single one. I've learnt that I need not need to fight every battle. 🗡️Sometimes, focusing on picking myself up and trying again is the best battle won. NEVER GIVE UP!☝️🤗
