Foto Friday: 5!

Friday, December 21, 2012



My first X'mas present from Yolanda! Pretty Instax Mini films and cake-in-a-jar from Grin Affair omg. I was so happy because I've always wanted to try the cakes from there! And of course, super thankful to this really wonderful girl who goes such a distance (literally) for this little jar of sweetness.

I feel so loved!


Here's how the Dark Chocolate cake-in-the-jar looks like. It is filled with dark chocolate mousse with soft chocolate cake and topped with sea salt dulce de leche and chocolate ganache dome. OMG absolutely decadent. I likeeeee!!!

Can't wait to try out their Cookies and Cream and Honey Lavender and Blueberry!

(That's a whole lot of 'and' in a sentence wtf)


Babyboo was enjoying himself one fine Saturday at his granny's place. The Bumbo was borrowed from my sis-in-law. Dy has some problems fitting in already! Apparently... his thighs are too thick for it.

Just like mummy eh, sunshine? Having all the thick thigh genes. Hahaha!


My 2nd X'mas gift came shortly after - this is My VMVery Favourite Things by VMV Hypoallergenics! This is a very cool gift idea if you'd like to give your girl-friends some skin-lovin', yet you can't decide what to give.

Hand cream? Acne Anti-bacterial gel? Shampoo?

My VMVery Favourite Things has everything I've mentioned above in sample sizes. Sample sizes may sound a little small, but think about it - it means you can bring it along when you go for trips cuz airplane doesn't allow you to carry anything more than 100ml of liquid stuff on flight right?


Here are all the products!

Top, from left to right: Armada Sport SPF70 sunblock, Grandma Minnie’s Mommycoddling All-Over Lotion (can use for babies also, Dy and I are using their Boo-Boo balm too. Very effective against scratches and mozzie bites.)

Bottom, from left to right: Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion, SuperSkin Care Creammmy Rich Intensive Moisture Milk for Dry Skin, Id Sweat Acne and Overall Anti-bacterial Gel, Essence Skin-Saving Superwash Hair and Body Milk Shampoo and Know-It-Oil.

Whoa I feel breathless by just telling you guys the items. *pant pant*

Will be trying out these products over the month and will definitely let you guys know the verdict!

(Btw, VMV Hypoallergenics is a really popular skincare brand in US, if you don't already know. Aaaaaand it is in Singapore now! Their flagship store is at ION Orchard, B3-48. Don't say I didn't share. Hehe.)


Because I've already so many X'mas presents knocking on my door, it is also the time I show appreciation to all my friends by buying them some presents! The one on the left belongs to Amanda (XY's daughter), the one in the middle is for Yo and the one on the right is for __________.

Cannot mention cuz she is actually my secret santee, hehee. But I must say I LOVE all the gifts I got for all these wonderful people. WTF I almost wanted to keep them for myself >.<


Very aptly named X'mas cards - Forever Friends!


Wore my new Aztec prints skirt out for Sunday's grocery shopping. Wanted to sell it away initially cuz I couldn't fit into it, but Mama Chan helped me got it altered, so it fits perfectly now! So like I always say... "If the clothes can't fit you, change the clothes, not yourself."



Mama Tan came over to our humble abode and whipped up a storm again! Previously she cooked us chilli crabs and this week, we had all of Nian's favourite food. Awesome mum is awesome!


Threw away 3 pairs of shoes - the first pair was the one that I worn out in my previous Foto Friday post, the 2nd one was a white pair of wedges. It cut my foot so bad I had to walk barefooted home after picking Dylan.. in the rain!

Truly pathetic wtf. Threw it away the first moment I got home. Pui.

Also threw another pair of nonsense wedges that also cut my foot... and then promptly went out and got myself some new shoes! Black one of a usual office day and a neon yellow one just to cheer up my dark outfits a little.

I still have room for one more pair hurhurhur.


Because I love seaweed chicken so much, Nian bought his wife 1kg of it (wait, how come packing says 850gm only? NTUC wrote it as 1kg ok!). It is quite a mega pack. I wonder how many chickens were killed for this!



Dylan has a purple urinal as X'mas present, thanks to Michelle 姨姨. I think he will need to be like 2 years old before he knows how to use this, but isn't it absolutely adorable to hang it beside our toilet bowl?!

I'm gonna stick a crosshair in the middle of the urinal - will Dylan be a marksman?


Nian also joined me in taking part in random giveaways and he just won his first prize for Dylan! Our little bubs now have a Rod Sorting Board to play with when he is older. Great job Daddy Tan!


Another #ootd - lace and crochets are really in this season isn't it?


Saw a rainbow while on the way to work. Made me a little happier after leaving my bubs. Edited this photo heavily to show the faint rainbow!


My little chirpy boy. *kiss kiss on my computer screen as I'm typing this*


Ending off my picture post for this week with the people I love.

They say everything happens for a reason. Now I know, they are the reason. :)

Have a great Friday everyone!
