Cleaning with Ecover Zero Range


What are the 2 main house chores that most families do regularly, if not, daily?

For our family, it's laundry and dish washing. Honestly, the house can go on without cleaning of floors and toilets for a couple of days, but laundry and dishes are the 2 chores that can't pile up. We don't want to run out of clothes and invite insects to our house.

However, little did I know that some of the laundry and dish washing detergent that we used contains "phosphates" that pollutes water systems and harm aquatic life. So, what can we do? We can't live without washing, but we can choose to use eco-friendly products like Ecover.

When I received the Ecover Zero Range, I wasn't quite impressed. Blame it on the fanciful and colourful packaging of products out in the market. The Ecover Zero products. in translucent plastic bottles with blue labels, are pale in comparison.

But, what seems like a normal laundry and dish washing detergent products to me are actually so much more!

7 things about being a second time mother

I recently started my journey as a 2nd time mother. Things are very different from the first time I became a mother. At first, I was worried that it would be a struggle but it wasn't as bad as I thought. I find it easier to go from 1 child to 2 than from 0 to 1. But, it's just tiring. So, how is it really like for me to be a 2nd time mother?

Avalyn turned 3 months old

Avalyn started infant care just 1 day before she turned 3 months. Many said it will be easier the 2nd round, but it wasn't the case for me. I find it harder to leave Avalyn in infant care than Emmalyn. Perhaps, it's because Avalyn is a fiercer and louder crier. Her voice turned hoarse after spending her first day at infant care. It broke my heart to watch her cried.

Family trip to Koh Samui and packing list for beach/pool outing

Our family made it to Koh Samui and back!

Many thought that we were out of our mind to bring our 2.5 months Avalyn on holiday, but it wasn't that mad afterall. You might have seen it on my Instagram, it was with 2 other families to Koh Samui at not just one, but two luxury villas! Check out our beach villa here first! Do look out for the post on the hilltop villa on A Million Little Echoes!

Happy 4th birthday, Emmalyn

Dear Emmalyn,
Happy 4th birthday!
Hope that you have enjoyed all the birthday celebrations! You had a pool party put together by Auntie May at Koh Samui, a non-theme turned Frozen themed party at school, shopping of presents and feasting with grandparents! Many had also showered you with presents - toys, books and clothes! (Thank you!)
You asked for ear piercing after seeing your cousin, Xara, having pretty earrings on her. In fact, you started asking for it when you saw your school BFF, Angelina, had it on many months back. So, we finally did it on your birthday!
