My routine marketing....

Good morning...it is Sunday...I am sure a lot of my friends here go to wet market frequently. .

Why wet market? I can keep budget lower with some free small things like spring onion, cilantro, ginger, chillies etc and fresher thus can keep longer...

Going to wet market on weekend used to be a torturous weekend morning, I will drag myself out from bed. ..now it is a routine habit, a must. From going to market at 9+am to 8+am, now I will wake up at 6am, be in market by 615am and arrive home by 7am to organize my marketing into the fridge and freezer. Why? I can park nearer, less people and less traffic in our mini kitchen while sorting coz all still in lala land...

I used to do weekly but now I manage to keep it to 2weeks once. Yes I need to go to car at least twice to keep the marketing stuffs..

DH will have to bear with the kitchen a bit messy in the morning because I will air dry the vege before storing into Tupperware in the fridge. All fish, meat n chicken are packed in Tupperware by portion to ease defrost process n labelled...

It is tiring for one weekend morning in every 2 weeks but it is very satisfying knowing our fridge+freezer are full and organized for our meals at home...


Most of the vege... Air drying...

Kids Playpen ...

Tonite all 3 kids said bye bye to an old solid faithful playpen...the playpen was hand down from my ex colleague when JL was a baby back in 2004.

The playpen was a playing area for her 3 kids. Later to our 3 kids...
We added small colourful balls into the playpen and all 3 kids had fun....

Old stuff was made to last...

Now Papa is flattening down the playpen to hand it to the next family... We hope the new owner will enjoy having this playpen as much as we did..

AL - Organizing her School bag....

AL is in Std1 trying to think of a way to organize her school bag... She was observing her classmates and came back one day requesting us to get several plastic folders. She divided her textbooks, workbooks n exercise books by subjects to each folders. We bought two type of folders. One type which was thicker to hold more books and another type for subjects with lesser books. She was happy because it was faster for her to pack her school bags without missing the books plus faster for her to access her books by subject during school

EL – Clearing the Frozen EBM

Yesterday 18Oct2014, I was clearing the freezer slowly and found 3 expired EBM. Our freezer is slowly clearing and somehow I was sad because it seemed that my breastfeeding journey with EL would be ending soon.  I had already stopped pumping for few months and still direct feed her at night.  She also was taking the fresh milk and oat milk well without any fuss.
It would be hard for both of us when I plan to wean her off by end of this year. It was an amazing journey with EL having to go through painful initial experience.

EL in playschool

Being the youngest, EL is rather spoilt. She is very tough and determine like girl. She would climb up the chair and then table just to see what her KorKor and JieJie are doing. However, she is still not able to go to Church Toddler by herself yet. We decided to send her to a playschool to keep her occupy.
Her first few weeks at playschool were tough screaming and crying when PohPoh was out of sight. Later she would make the teacher to carry her throughout the class while she does her screaming drama.  A few times when I sent her, upon turning to the road of her playschool, tears started to roll down from her eyes. Eventually, she found it was fun going to playschool. Now it was a brisk sending her to playschool. She would wave bye bye and follow the teacher into the playschool.
She would only be 2 in Dec2014 however she seems to grow up faster than her age

Mini Music Studio

Our friend created a mini music studio by converting the high ceiling of the upstairs hallway into a nice loft. It is a mini yet cozy place with drum, guitar, keyboard etc…  Most of the items in the studio are available at www.musiciansfriend.com . If we have the space, this would be one of the rooms I would love to have where we can spend as a family worshipping and our family time. It would be a time well spent as a family exploring the different songs using different music instruments

Girls’ Room

We decided to move EL to zzz with AL few months ago. Similar way as the older two, we place the baby cot mattress on the floor and EL was able to zzz without falling from the bed. However, I would still need to go to the bed with her every night. She would turn everywhere before she eventually zzzz… When she awake, instead of crying, she would slowly walk to our room and pat my hand. She would zzz in between us and conquering most of the bed pushing both of us to corner of the bed. It would be something we would treasure as EL is growing soo fast

Having pets

Staying in a small apartment means it is hard to get a pet. There will not be enough space for the pet to move around. However, the kids do enjoy watching some pet in the pet shop. There are so many pet shop in the shopping mall and also online such as EntirelyPets. A lot of pet owners are now willing to spend extra for their pets from food, toys, grooming and medical. Pet’s services have been expanded and commercialized a lot nowadays as entrepreneur is seeing a lot of opportunities.
