Holiday in view!

There is a serious lack of updates on this blog.

Just recovered from a terrible bout of cold > fever > stomach flu. The greatest comforts I had were my hubby and little girl, both whom took turns to care for me. She was very understanding when I told her that I'm not feeling well, and asked if we can postpone her swimming trip to another day. The best part, she came to check on me every now and then, asking "Mommy, feeling better now?", "Mommy, you want food?", "Tummy still pain? I put oil-oil for you?" and offered to rub my tummy. *cues unanimous aww...

Oh my, how much she has grown. I hope she'll stay forever so sensible and dear.

That said, another holiday is in order. So Bro and I have organised an official family trip, this time, including his GF, and our parents. Awesome-ness.

Just browsing at the pictures of the villa already eases my post-holiday blues!





Each villa has its own resident cat, and like me, I'm sure Baby Ma would love it to bits. Can't wait for the trip. My much needed break.

Till then.

2014.08.15 - 2014.08.25 Taiwan 走透透

I just realized that I never posted the pictures taken during our August Taiwan trip.

So, here are some of the highlights. Initially intending to spend a couple of days at Kaohsiung, but we re-routed due to the gas explosion and only went to Taichung, Hsinchu, Keelung / Jiufen and Taipei.

Amongst the many places we went, Baby Ma loved the farm-stay at Flying Cow the most. She enjoyed so much that we may consider going to Perth in the near future. 

For now, I'll just let the pictures speak.

Bébé is two!

Bébé is officially two!

Before she started school, I swore I would never succumb to her requests for celebration and/or goodie bags.

But, I did. 
I did it without her even asking.
*facepalm*

I just love the look of delight spread across her chubby little face.

Celebration with her schoolmates and favorite (now second-favorite) Dora theme


Celebrations at my mom's and in-laws'


How could we miss cooking her rice vermicelli noodles with egg. Look at her enjoying her bowl of yums. Watching her eat is such a joy (cleaning up afterwards is another story altogether).

Late, late, late.

Finally. I finally have time to sit down and sort out the pictures from our photoshoot in May. O.M.G. It's been almost five months.

Five months since the photoshoot. 
Five months since she started full-day childcare. 
Five months without my stay-in Mommy helping me.

Phew! How did I even survive and get this far?

Well, I'll end off with  some of the (extremely late) pictures from the shoot below. Some of the behind-the-scene shots are so hilarious that I decided to print them out in collages. Look at Ms. Fidgety in action!


The bottom-left is darn funny. I've got a little hooligan!

Achievement unlocked: 18months


Sascha turned 18 months on Monday.
Can't believe how quickly she's growing!

Brought her for a photoshoot with Claire from Tree of Life Photography. We were so occupied with attracting and distracting her that we've totally forgotten about snapping pictures with our own cameras. This was the only one I managed to capture on my mobile phone.
*facepalm* 

Can't wait for the pix to be ready in a month's time!

妹妹背着洋娃娃

So much to do, so little time.
This phrase sums up my life of late, in fact, it sums up my entire post-baby journey.

So here it is, an update with a single picture -  my recent favorite.
Poppy aptly calls it "妹妹背着洋娃娃". Sascha looking really dolly-ish (and irresistibly cute!) with her Snow White pookalooz plush in her backpack.

We had a busy end for 2013, and an equally busy start for 2014.
Had our 3D2N family staycation at Rasa Sentosa, followed by new year celebration back in Sungai Tiang. 

Pictures coming up on Facebook shortly!
And for now...


Here's Toddler Sascha grabbing Ang Baos off Grandma's "money tree"

Sascha is turning One!

I am constantly in awe of how fast time slips past, especially when life is joyful and fulfilling.

Less than a year ago, I was still carrying my teeny babe in my tummy, suffering from heartburns and insomnia. Now, my infant is all grown up, and is turning into a terrible terrific tot.

Oh my, how she has blossomed!

To commemorate the little steps Sascha has taken thus far, I made a short video montage.
Hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did making it.


It is said that a picture speaks a thousand words. I say a word paints a thousand pictures.
And the ones we're painting now are all about LOVE.
