Studio Memories: Ways to create special family memories + Giveaway

Sponsored

These 3 years of parenthood has been a great joy and an adventure for our family. We laughed hard, played hard and stepped out of our comfort zone. However, it's definitely not one without any tears, fears and struggles.


As a working mother, I'm challenged to juggle family, work and life while trying to lead a faithful life. Over time, I learnt that family time shouldn't be taken for granted. In fact, it takes some intentional effort to create special family memories and strengthen family ties.

Emmalyn turns 3 years old on a historical and glorious day for Singapore!


On 13 Aug, Joseph Schooling set a new Olympic record, left the world in awe and made Singapore so proud! Along with his gold medal, countless are inspired to achieve bigger dreams in life. Of the many clips and reports swimming around, I particularly love the interview with Joseph's parents. I see the love, support and strength they have showered upon him. It left me pondering about parenting and I pray that the Lord would bless us the wisdom to upbring and help Emma unleash her own potential as well.

5 More Nutritious and Easy Soups for Toddlers

For many good reasons, we always have soups on our dinner menus!

  
As a soup lover, Emma could easily slurp down a small bowl after her main course. She has always been quite a picky eater and used to take 45 mins to finish up her meals when she went on food strike. So, you can imagine how happy I was when she finished up her first bowl of soup in less than a min.

IKEA: 5 simple ways to reduce food wastage at home

I never consider myself to be a wasteful person until I started to cook for Emma 2 years ago.

It all began with purees where I steamed, blended and froze the food item. After 3 weeks, I threw few cubes away as I think they aren't fresh enough and made new ones. Emma quickly moved on to porridge and later on soups and dishes. It's not longer a simple affair. Since I only cook for Emma and love variety, it was sometimes hard for me to use up all the ingredients before they turn bad. Once a while, I received criticism from Hubby about food wastage and I usually just brushed him off. I was really focused on providing a healthy and balanced meal for Emma as much as I could.

But, he was so right! For every item wasted, I didn't just waste the dollars and wastes. It actually leads to more waste - waste of the farmers' effort, extra carbon footprints and increase waste. From today, I hope to embrace my weakness, learn to be less wasteful and contribute towards the sustainability of the world.


 
Here's some ways to reduce food wastage and I hope to turn them into habits as a new mummy cook.

5 Reasons why I love Dyson V8 Fluffy | Cord Free Vacuum Cleaner Review

Sponsored

As a working mum, it has always been a constant challenge to keep our house spanking clean and tidy. I engaged part time cleaner on weekends when we stayed in. 

For those busy weekends, I just had to squeeze in vacuuming during pocket of free time and complete the rest of the chores at night. When I failed to, I would sometimes head home during lunch time to vacuum and mop the floor if time permits. #beautyofworkingnearhome.


Then, my life changed after getting Dyson V8 Fluffy weeks ago.
