Happy National Day!

This is a schedule post.
Hi there everyone!! Hope you're having a good day as it's holiday tomorrow!
I am now enjoying my off days (I think so :p) as a mummy. Despite having fun, I miss my naught boy A LOT! But everyone deserves a break once a while right?
Here wishing everyone a happy Merdeka day!!
Take care!!

VT: My first curated trove

Received my first curated trove the other day!! Must thank Valerie and Winnie from VT for the generous news, also their helps! Let's take a look at the box shall we?
Inside the pretty box, there are a total of 6 beauty items which I have chosen
1. off with those heads, from b.liv This is such an effective product to kill those stubborn blackheads! Most importantly, it's painless! It also keeps excessive oil secretion under control and thus skin irritation will never rule again.
2. Hydrance optimale light hydrating cream (5ml), from Avene I always love Avene products, especially the spring water, it is a very good hydration agent, so I believe this hydrating cream would deliver similar results too!

3. Repair mask (30ml), from SP The hair mask is able to repair hairs up to 100% with just one application, just right for me cause I've just colored my hair last week.
4. Pure essential oil lavender (1.5ml), from Heaven on earth We all know the goodness of lavender oil right? This…

Back, and am leaving again

Thank you everyone for the kind condolences. It has been a hectic week, rushing here and there for all the ceremony, and there's still prayers tomorrow as it's the 7th day (Quite an important ceremony, according to the Chinese) since grandma's passing.
Needless to say, everyone is tired, including myself. But thank God I have a great mum who can help me to look after Aden while I was busy.
I'll be MIA again soon. Won't be visiting your blogs so frequent for the coming 2 weeks, but will try my best to leave you comments whenever time allows.
Thank you for still visiting my blog!
You guys take care!! Miss you!
Here's a photo of Aden, in case if you miss him =) No photos of mummy cause she looks super exhausted >.<

Bye for now

Hubby's paternal grandma just passed away this evening at the age of 83 years old. I managed to see her one last time. In fact all her closest family members were there with her when she caught her last breathe, and I told her I'll surely take good care of Aden (her only great grandchild), and she left peacefully.

It's not easy to see any of our loved ones leaving us. Though she is not my own grandma, I couldn't control my emotion and cried in the hospital :(

But thinking at the bright side, she now no longer needs to struggle from any illness, and I am sure she is now living at a better world, watching us from above.

Ah Mah, we love you. May your soul rest in peace. And you'll be dearly missed.

亲爱的阿嫲,一路走好!

Will be busy for the following days, take care you guys!

Kiwi, bacon and cheese muffins

Read about this at missyblurkit's blog and so tempted to try!
Let's waste no more time and straight to the point shall we?
Here're the ingredients needed:
• 75g butter (melted) • 2 Kiwifruit  • 250g flour  • 2 tsp baking powder • 75g caster sugar • 75g cheddar cheese • 1 egg • 125ml milk • 1 tsp oregano • 125g bacon 
Steps: 1. Cube bacon and fry them, drain and set aside.

2. Mash the kiwifruit.

3. Mix dry ingredients together (flour, sugar, oregano and baking powder).

4. Mix melted butter, half the mashed kiwifruit, milk and egg together.

5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour mixture #4 into it. 6. Mix until well blended.  7. Once well mixed, add the bacon, cheddar cheese and the other half kiwifruit. Combine well.

8. Spoon into the muffin cups. Fill it about 3/4 full. You can put in some kiwifruit on top as decorations too.

9. Bake under 190'C for about 20 mins.
Tada!!  Opps, I hope you're not feeling hungry if you're reading this at 11.50pm, hehe~
Anyway, I have to sa…

Of a short gathering and Penang trip

We did not go anywhere during the long Raya break, as hubby needed to work on Saturday, but I think it's a good idea to stay at Taiping to avoid the crowd.
Met up with a few friends on the second day of Raya.
Naughty boy was there too!
This is Lucas boy, my friend's son, kinda shy in the beginning, even Honey Star also failed to make him smile (If you remember, he joined our girls trip to Port Dickson March this year)
But Lucas got 'warmed up' eventually, hehe~
Lucas and my boy, they are about 6 months difference in age 
l-r: Annie, Lucas and mummy Catherine, Aden and yours truly
Crystal joined after that. Both Crystal and Catherine are working at KL. Actually most of my girl friends are working outstation, they hardly come back, and I hardly go there so it's quite hard for us to catch up. Only during certain big occasions like CNY or wedding, so I really treasure every gathering, even though they are just a short one. We are all school mates by the way ;)

Formula milk for Aden

Aden has been drinking Dumex Mamex formula milk ever since I stop breastfeeding. Thank God he is ok with it all this while, hence we never thought of switching brands for him.
But things changed lately as some of the baby's formula milk were being recalled, due to contamination, and Dumex Mamex is one of it :(  I can't tell if the tin at home was affected but for the sake of Aden, I decided to stop feeding him that and went survey/study other brands immediately. 
Was shocked when I read about the news!  Well, as a first time mum, I think it's no surprise that I am so worried about it! Though Aden is still doing ok, I want to be safe than sorry, who can guarantee things will be fine right?
But at the same time, I am in dilemma whether to buy another tin of the same brand or take this opportunity to introduce Aden to other brands. Switching formula milk for a baby/toddler can be a good thing, but also can be a nightmare, I personally believe it's a type of 'knowledg…
