The mid-week point forms

1. So it's the 14th day since new year but life is like usual to me. Got to pay attention to my online business and look after Aden as usual, but at the same time doctor advised me to rest as much as possible. Very difficult to carry out the latter action but for the baby and myself, I know I have to rest a lot also. Thank God I got helping hands which is my mum and the in laws. 

2. I miss baking and Yoga lessons. Guess I can only resume baking and attending Yoga classes months later (that also depends on if I have the time >.<) I foresee this year is gonna be busy for me, and I will become one hectic aunty, LOL! But I do hope I will have at least some extra time to come and update my blog. 

3. CNY is coming within a month but there's nothing exciting for me, we cannot 'celebrate' yet due to grandma's passing 2 years ago (the Chinese pantang larang ritual). I din't really shop much and in fact I think I can just skip the CNY shopping this year ;) 

4. Aden is currently 2years 8months young and he will be attending Montessori school next month, while I am currently 23 weeks pregnant. Sure not easy to be pregnant while looking after an active toddler but I think I can do it ;)

That's all I can think of now. Thanks for reading my random notes and I wish you all a happy Wednesday! 


  1. CNY also not exciting to me. Hope you can get some rest :) Take care, Hayley!

  2. Take care & yes, u can do it!

  3. You can do it babe! Rest as much as possible and eat as much as possible too! Yummzzzz

  4. 加油!我今天也skip了CNY shopping!哈哈!

  5. 今年我反而比较期待农历新年,因为多了带小芝麻去亲戚朋友家玩的机会!

  6. Most importantly, take good care of yourself. So long your mourning period? Anyway, in your condition, just let it pass - go somewhere nice and quiet and rest and relax. Hassle-free, get away from it all - much better that way.

    1. Yes, 3 years oo.

      Thanks for the comment ya!

  7. I am very surprised that your family still observe this customs of respect for mourning that long and not to celebrate the CNY. This is really very good for the family and I do believe this is important for the departed souls but many people have changed. My friend's family was terrible cos they all immediately wore red clothes right after cremating their father. Adoi!!!

    1. TM, just some sharing, my relatives (my father side), some of them, they are Catholic, as for me, i'm a Christian, as when my grandfather passed away in the year 2003, we still gather at my Uncle place during the year 2004 CNY to celebrate CNY...

  8. aden下个月就上学了,预祝一切顺利!我target在儿子三岁前送去幼儿园但是不要学术的^^
    好好休息哦~或许孕后期开始暂时停止你的online business好好休息了

  9. yeah you should listen to your doctor and get more rest.. I hope you are not staying up late every night like you use to?? but then I think this is your 2nd one in the tummy, you are experienced enough and know what's best for you right?? also I think you are able to handle your life, your blog, your online business and also your "little melon" perfectly lah.. 加油!!! :)

    1. Of course not anymore, I go to bed earlier lately ;)

      Thanks SK!

  10. hahaha!! "Hayley the Hectic Aunty" so funny but I like this title, hehehe.. I think if you are not attending your Yoga class, you can still do that at home huh?? I have heard of some Yoga which is suitable for pregnant ladies and also for the post natal period leh.. maybe you can do that to relax yourself and I supposed you can drag Aden to do it together also, haha!! must be fun~~ :D

    1. Yes I did some prenatal Yoga at home also but not syok la, no sweat also one :p
      But better than none la~

  11. yalor CNY is coming in a month's time.. but I think it's a little too early to feel the mood?? actually to me, I won't also feel that too even until the CNY reunion dinner la.. old already lah I guess, unlike last time very kan cheong about CNY one, early early already plan to buy clothes and CNY stuffs but now, aiyah cincai lah, haha!! got haven't worn before clothes can treat as new already not necessarily need to buy.. but for you, got kids mah, if yourself don't buy you also will buy for Aden lor I believe.. :)

    1. I feel you too, really no mood already cause we are getting older, no more receiveing ang pao and all, hoho!!

      Oh of course will still buy some for Aden~

  12. few more months and Aden is going to Montessori, how quickly time has passed!! I guess you are also looking forward to that huh?? your boy is growing up, and you will have have some personal time while he's in school horr?? and don't worry so much la, 船到橋頭自然直, 天塌下來當被蓋 mah.. :)

    1. Hmm yala, quite look forward to that ;)

      Ok, I listen to you.. 船到橋頭自然直 ^^

  13. CNY shopping...can't remember when was my last time of it!

  14. It's funny that most of my friends/colleagues of similar age only start picking up cooking and baking after they have babies. Before it was always eating out and tapao because no time, but when babies enter their lives, they start to be paranoid about outside food for the babies, so they somehow manage to squeeze time to cook and bake. Some of them refer to my blog for cooking tips XD

  15. Take good care of yourself and I'm sure you will have a lot of helpers for the next few months or years.

  16. Please rest more, blog only when you feel like it. All the best to Aden in going to school next month!

  17. Congrats Hayley. Rest well and Aden will love his sibling and be better once the baby is out. No worries :)

  18. Rest more and take care, Hayley. CNY or not , at least one less thing for you to worry about. Yea not easy to take care of am active toddler at this period.

  19. You sure have your hands full, Hailey.. yes, do try to rest more if need all the energy once the baby is on her/his way.. :)

  20. Glad to read your updates. Yes, sure hands full looking after an active kid while you are in a delicate state. Take it easy. Rest well because now you have all the times. Trust me, when baby is here and you are full time looking after both kids, you do not even have time to go to toilet!! ^^

  21. not easy but gambateh pretty mum ^^

  22. 加油 that is what I always say to my sis

  23. Is ok...take one step at a time. You are doing great.

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

What we did during the long Deepavali holidays/这个屠妖节长假

I bet every stay-at-home-mums suffer from headache when it comes to school holidays.
It can means more screaming more mess at home, haha!

Though I have only 2 kids at the moment, I really dislike school holidays.
Firstly, big brother stays home all day means there will be more fighting, more chasing and even more bullying.
Secondly, staying at home all day can be very boring for kids, I need to crack head thinking what to let them do to pass time.

Anyway, during the recent Deepavali long holidays, I brought them to Trong duck farm.
The last visit was only last month, apparently my sons love this place and have been pestering me to go there again.
Since it's school holiday and the place is not far, why not?


再来,要他们一整天呆在家也很无聊,我这个懒妈妈都不懂要让他们玩些什么新玩意 xD

 唯一一方面我喜欢的就是不必当司机载上学~ :p

Anyway, 这个屠妖节的长假呢,第一个外出的地方就是自农鸭场。


This time I drove my parents and sons there since hub…
