9 Feb shop update

The little shop received some new additions last night while others went on sale! Yes you read right, I'm having a mini CNY sale on selected items for 3 days before I take some time off for the festive season. If you would like to receive your jewellery for CNY, the last day to purchase is 11 February Thursday.

We will be staying with my parents over the weekend (there's a valid reason why we call their place The Resort) and as a special treat the hubster and I will be having a 2-day-1-night staycation at a nice fancy mystery hotel without the bub. Hehe. Can't wait for some much- needed couple time to relax and renew our romance... some lounging by the pool and cuddles under the duvet, and not a nappy or bottle in sight! Yippee! All we really want is just a decent night's sleep and a truly proper lie in. That's not too much to ask for, right?

Till then, here's to a blessed abundant lunar new year to all! Be back here again soon!

06.02.10 shop update

{Yu Bracelet}

The 3 new additions yesterday.

Have a toast Saturday folks!

You can always tell Chinese New Year is round the corner with the heatwave :p

slathering sunblock like tomorrow,


In case you haven't noticed, 3 new pieces were added to the little shop yesterday before I went out to meet the polo girls for the evening. By 10pm, my eyes were glazed and I started to take in only bits and pieces of the conversation. That goes to show how early my bedtime has become! It's funny how conversations have started to revolve around kids - though I'm the only mama, everyone has nephews! - making me feel somewhat auntified among us four.

We reminisced about how fearsome (haha) we were in the pool, but more often than not we lamented the distant memories of lean muscles and toned biceps, nicely tanned skin and the ability to stuff our face without weight concerns. Doesn't help that our male counterparts of old still look as fit as before and 1) continue to be active in the sport or 2) go on to other sporting endeavours like marathoning! The only exercise I get nowadays is toddler-chasing, which I should add, is surprisingly effective though much much much less glamourous.

I've not really blogged much about my past outdoorsy life cos frankly I've either lost/misplaced the photos from those days. But in our last spring cleaning, I found a CD containing some old kayaking pictures (Viv you can ask me for them heh) and since we're in the mood for some nostalgia, here they are! Please don't be amazed that I actually am in these photos, albeit much much much fitter and darker than I am now. Haha!

Yes this was my life till 6 years ago.
Ah, such fond memories...

Little additions

To fast forward from my last update on the little guy, Nathan is now officially a walker! And gone are my days of (relative) leisure... now it's running after him and saying no you can't touch this, or no running or step, step, STEP!! Oh boy.... It sure is giving me some good old exercise. Exhausting as it can be at times for the adults, it sure tires him out as well so he knocks out for naps and sleeps through the night till cock-a-doodle-doo!
Our days are now spent going to the playground, swimming or having playdates with his friends, like little miss natalie :)
Here they are enjoying their schoolbus ride

And our typical Saturday morning at the playground - the walks there has given the bub and I a nice toasty tan but sadly Daddy is still as pasty as ever hehe. Nate has definitely inherited my ability to tan with minimal sun, phew! We still can't believe he is turning 1 in 3 weeks! Why, he was just a tiny babe when we brought him home with us less than a year ago. And now he is a proper trooper. He is still the littlest walker at the playground but he's not the least bit daunted and goes up to other kids to play with them and is especially adept at terrorising unsuspecting canine bystanders. Watch out world!

I end my little family update with a sweet darling addition to the shop:

blissful and contented,
