Sofzsleep Mattress – We choose natural latex

January 31, 2015, 0 Comments

We have been using spring mattress since our wedding day and after 9 years, the sag in the middle of the bed, was obvious. And despite flipping the mattress, I think it has reached its maximum lifespan. With my belly growing quickly in the recent months, I was beginning to experience backaches. A hunt for simple mattress turned out to be quite an experience for us. Like most things, we take for granted that what has worked for a long time would still work. Not so when it comes to mattresses, we found out later.  We chanced upon various types…

Prenatal treatment at Nouri : Scrub and Wrap

January 16, 2015, 0 Comments

  I went back to Nouri’s to finish off my prenatal treatment. This time I was highly recommended to do a “Scrub & Wrap” combo.  I actually can’t wait because each time I finished at Nouri’s, I feel refreshed. But many women ask, “Is it really safe to do a body scrub during pregnancy since our skin is more sensitive during this period of time?”  Valerie of Nouri Face and Body Concepts tells me that it is important to select a highly trained therapist who could recommend products that are safe for use, as well as to ensure that expectant…

Hotel Oasia – 6 star service

Who would have thought much about a local hotel. I was up to my neck with the non stop preparation for the family, the boys’ new homeschool arrangements, new interests, their medical check-ups, the logistics of welcoming a new baby in less than 4 weeks, the stress of rising cost, and bickering within the household etc. Before long, my tolerance level dropped to an all time low and I knew I had to get away to rest.  A staycation would be perfect. Just a quiet and neat place to unwind with minimum interruptions. No maid in sight to supervise, no…

Makeup so good even for preggers!

  Are you pregnant or simply just a modern woman looking for good, clean makeup? Well, I looked everywhere but found nothing as good as Jane Iredale Skin Care Mineral Makeup! Not every mineral makeup is created equal, so it is important to look at the ingredient list. Being heavily pregnant, I look every bit t.i.r.e.d. When people say that pregnant women glow, I actually feel otherwise. Especially in my first and third trimester, all I could think of is my bed! (You can’t see my eye bags and dark circles, which is precisely why I am sitting so far…

How to have fuss-free birthday parties

January 5, 2015, 0 Comments

  I don’t profess to have all the answers, but I’ve discovered something which works for me, and hopefully for you! When the kids are much younger, their birthday parties were very very simple. Food, family members, relatives, “ang pows”, practical pressies, hugs and kisses is all the love they get on their special day. The older boy usually prefers a cosy group. During his 5th birthday, he invited his closest friends to one of his favourite place – The Fire station.  A team of very sporting Firemen took time to take the group for a tour of the station,…
