September!

Hello September, always my favorite month of the year. Went hiatus for no other reason but just being lazy

Update on #MKCrib we are more a less settle with the house.

Contractor – checked | Carpenter – checked | Aircon contractor – Checked too

We even brought our dream fridge at quite a good price few week ago can’t wait to use it already! Fridge is really important to us as we cooked a lot like everyday, so Ming and i think it’s a good investment. Next will be kitchen hood and hob, no price guessing where we spend our renovation fees most. The price hacking and laying the current wall and floor tiles for the kitchen already cost a bomb then the kitchen cabinet and all the accessories. Better make it worthy by cooking more and utilize my kitchen in future. We are thankful to have some saving and blessing from my in laws without their support we can’t even afford a house here. Recently some friends asked us how much do PR or foreign need to buy a resale flat the answer by the time we place our intent to buy it was at least 28% download payment to purchase a resale hdb but goverment recently increase to 33%. So if you’re getting a 600k resale flat you will need 198k cash in hand or saving in cpf to pay the down payment for a house. Which is ridiculous expensive but no choice who ask us to buy house in foreign land right. Then is renovation fees because all resale flat need some hacking and renovation depend on flat conditions like ours was not that bad but not to my personal liking most of the door are at weird positions so we need to seal it up and hack the wall to open up new doorway for kitchen and common toilet. Storeroom too need to moved to another place in the house as it’s now too close to another room. We are 1.5 months away from renovation take place hope no hiccups along the way.

Back to my happy months, Mum is here for a whole week for ahem my birthday request, so touched when i asked her why she choose this week to come over instead of last week when Malaysia have 2 ph in a week she say it’s my birthday mah! so sweet can die! Best gift ever coz this week i can relax a little as she helped me a lot on cooking and house chores and most important taking care of Miss Chloe. Also a few dates with Ming, he booked omakase for my birthday dinner we can only have omakase without Chloe tagging along and my love for Japanese food is real. I had 3 jap meal in 4 days already this week will be 4 in total, last Sunday we went on a couples date with Ping and Will it was fun and we enjoyed the food very much also each other accompanied. Oh and sister zhi just left after her 4 days here her visit was impromptu, brought the flights a week ago as i think she needed a break. We have a good bonding just before her flight we went orchard for lunch and shop then laugh our way home like crazy women only with her we can talk nonsense and laugh till our jaw cramp.

 Exciting September ahead!

National Day BBQ + Chloe 3rd Birthday

o after our celebration in KL in my house and my in law place on the actual day we planned a mini bbq section with close friends very mini one indeed i didn’t even invite my relatives/cousins in SG or Chloe classmates. Because i paiseh have to trouble people to come and i prefer to host small party. I’m glad i did that because i manage to spend equal time with each guest and keep them occupied.

One thing about bbq was to get everybody can involve in food preparation however feel bad to them as they need to work a little to get food haha..This bunch of guest very kind and helpful they take turn to help or babysit kids without asking! Even my friend commented your guest all so kind!

A small area for kids to hang around and play with toy i brought it down, it does kept them occupied for awhile after that they are running everywhere.

Cuties taking photos together, this Chloe really petite la. Just went for 3 years old assessment at Polyclinic this morning, nurse say she on the small size but grow according to her own pace and totally normal asked me not to worried but still … She suggested me to give her more snack time to increase her intake on food to see if that help her to grow some fat.DSC05635-18With our princess for cake cutting! Ming look tired from all the bbq, thanks for the hardwork in preparing the food.

They looking happy and excited for the cakes! Keep taking their photos and forget about our group photos!! blame my prawn head!

Thanks to all my kind guests who make it happen!DSC05675.JPG

Gift from everyone from friend in Kl to SG, let her unwrap them one by one then i kept all in the store room, next morning i give her the barbie from my boss to unbox first she’ve been playing with it for 1 week + now not sign of getting bored, see how long can this barbie last till next new toy.

We didn’t brought her any present this year but this party memory shall be the one.

May God’s love always surrounds you, and may the path that you walk on each day give glory to our God. May God always be with you today and all the days of your life.

I love you so much, my darling daughter.

You are my life’s biggest blessing. Happiest birthday!

Quick one

After we got back to Singapore on Monday night, it’s been busy and hectic. Need to unpack quickly and tidy the place a little so our part-time helper can do her usual cleaning. We are so tired on Tuesday morning, Ming decided to let me and Chloe sleep in without waking us up. She have been skipping school for 2 weeks now plus national day holiday that will be 3 weeks! Since she’s still young i don’t mind skipping class spending time with family is equally important too when she grow older we don’t have this luxury to travel on non-school holiday anymore.

Hope the food enough to feed our guest and no left so we don’t need to deal with leftover.
