EasiYo Real Yogurt Wonders

 

fullsizeoutput_3b38

I am a huge fan or yogurt and so are my children. It is a healthy alternative to ice cream and known to have billions of live cultures yet deliciously healthy, how can we (to be more specific i) not be a huge fan, right?

AND then i found EasiYo. I am a huge fan and have been using this EasiYo to make yogurt for my family for years! Hence, i have decided to share my little secret (okay, its probably not a secret as everyone who has heard and tried EasiYo would probably know how to make em’ already) however, for those who hasn’t … now this is a MUST GET be it for yourself or the family!

img_7718

The fact that i am able to make/ create something at home (myself) has always been a bonus point in my context. Hence, when i first started making yogurt at home with the kids.. for some odd reason.. it tastes that much better. 😛 (Maybe it’s also because my kids are helping out). It is one of my little mini project with my kids to make something delicious together while having our bonding sessions.

Making EasiYo is so easy yet satisfying. All we have to do is mix water to the yogurt mix sachet, put it in the Yogurt Maker and in a matter of hours (to be exact 12-15 hours) you’d get the freshest, tastiest yogurt ever. The best part is, it actually taste real good and there’s no artificial ingredients involved. If you haven’t already try it~ go get yourself one at the nearest hypermarket.

Hello 2018

IMG_2873
Hi everyone.
It’s been a while.
A couple months ago, I decided to take things a little slow. I find myself lost in finding my true purpose for this blog. I reached a point where I was constantly swamped with advertorial content and events and I kind of lost myself with excitement of these wonderful projects that the next thing I realise was the impact it had on my blog content. Despite that, being a hands on mother of two had me juggling with time management as they are both attending different schools had me struggling to maintain my work and personal life all together.

Towards the end of 2017, and after many long days of struggling in thought,I decided to take the step to reflect and turned down numerous projects in line as I decided to take some time off to revamp and truly seek myself and the true intentions on how I wanted this blog to go….whether if I should really call it quits or make a game change all together…. And finally… yes finally it’s about darn time that I’m back to turn things right.

2017 went by with so many amazing experiences, lessons and achievements for me. I was very pleased that I managed to strike of at least 8 from my 2017 resolution list. This year, I definitely have more challenges up ahead that I would like to pursue.IMG_3193

As health is a big impact to everyones lives. I have been rather realistic with mine. In 2017, I started living a more fulfilling life with a big focus on Health. I had a shock in mid of 2017 when I realise my fat % sat on a square ground of above 27% which shook me real hard, especially with my petite frame. I began working out 3 times a week and gradually increasing to 5 times a week. The journey was initially tough to get on track. I was always tired! But for health, I told myself.. I need to change. I started watching and learning about the food I eat. I began to meet new people whom taught me the importance of both health and food and the changes in makes to ones body. I was truly intrigued by it all.

IMG_3597

The Sourdough. As the journey continues, the more I learnt about health… I also learnt about bread making. It took me almost a year to finally get how to make a loaf of Sourdough bread with many failed moments in between. I swear, I gave up so many times but I am so proud of myself that I finally did manage to figure it all out at the end. I am not a professional. I swear I am far from that level, but I am definitely taking myself through this self learning journey as I venture into 2018.

IMG_3417

As I have mostly share the sweet part of life in this blog (creating memories is a must for me) but sadly, life is life. My grandma isn’t all too great this year with constant in and out of the hospital since 2017. I have always been close to my granny at heart as she used to take care of me when I was very little. Every couple of weeks when I hear the news that she is in hospital, my heart aches a little and worrisome is an understatement of how I feel. I know for a fact it is a parcel of life.. people come.. people go. But still… she’s my granny.

IMG_4596

Good relationships have also blossom further last year. I met so many new people and closer to those whom I have lost touched for the longest time with. I truly treasure each and everyone I have cross path with and hope to be bless with even more quality friendship this year ahead.

IMG_2988

Motherhood is ever so challenging 😂😅 As both my children are no longer adorable toddlers, I have a whole new level of patience to learn which falls at no.1 for my 2018 resolution… TO BE HAVE MORE PATIENCE. If you are one of those moms who knows a thing or two in this area, please do PM me and share some notes. I love my kids to bits and occasionally I will joke around with the husband perhaps we should have another one this year considering a number of mommies around me are also pregnant.. But truth is, 2 is really a handful right now. HAHAHHA.

Hypno Birthing “The Gentle Birthing Bootcamp”

63686_10150113671573092_589283091_7589404_3900708_n-thumb.jpg

Being pregnant twice in this lifetime has been truly a blessing. It has not only opened my eyes to learn how amazing the role of Mothers are. Ever since being a mom, I have always seek to give my children the very best I can. Today, I would like to share with you something I perceived to be a magical knowledge that I wished I had the opportunity to have learnt when I was pregnant.

❤️

It was only recently, I came across HypnoBirthing. Like many, I myself was curious to learn more about the choices of birthing we have as mothers. AND HypnoBirthing is actually all about JUST THAT.
As what I have recently found out, the name itself/association with hypnosis raises many misconceptions. Hence, I wish to share this out to all as I have learnt that there will be an upcoming bootcamp to share some love and spread awareness to all.
Here’s a little bit of information about what I have learnt thus far.
❤️
Hypnosis is NOT : 
– losing control of your mind
– revealing family secrets or bank account details 😛
– an eerie, trance-like state
In fact, you are fully in control and it is a very natural state of the mind. Daily examples of hypnosis is daydream, driving on auto-pilot, engrossed watched TV, the state between half asleep and half awake (so at least 2x a day before we fall asleep and before we become fully awake).
❤️
HypnoBirthing is NOT:
– water birth or home birth. Majority of HypnoBirthing mums birth in hospital – dry birth
 ❤️
How Does HypnoBirthing Work
 
HypnoBirthing works on both the conscious and subconscious mind – which is way more powerful than conscious mind.
Conscious mind – knowledge on natural birth process and thorough preparation for their birth – birth plan, nutrition, exercise, birth companion role, bonding with baby, body’s perfect design of birth so mums feel confident in their innate ability to birth
Subconscious mind – Fear release through hypnosis – releasing all subconscious fear + daily practising of positive affirmations of birth so the WHOLE mind becomes positive.
The body is a robot of the mind – once mum has a positive mindset, her body will follow suit. Body reacts positively when it is time to birth and relaxes so baby comes easily.
HypnoBirthing  has a 12.5 hour highly comprehensive childbirth preparation class. A usual hospital antenatal class spends 1-2 hours on birth. That is not enough.
Teaching many techniques too – breathing, relaxation, deepening relaxation, visualisation & affirmations. The Gentle Birth Bootcamp is a 3 hour sharing on positive birth.
❤️

Background on The Gentle Birth Bootcamp

The objective of this bootcamp is to raise public awareness of the importance of a gentle birth experience for the whole family. There are also many things that new parents are unaware of. Simple knowledge that could make a BIG difference in how their experience can go.
Baby With Bee is an independent antenatal education provider that teaches parents things that are not normally taught in typical hospital antenatal classes. Teaching a childbirth technique called HypnoBirthing and other baby-centered classes like infant massage, breastfeeding and newborn care classes are also apart of their program.
❤️
More on Gentle Birth
The topics that covered during the bootcamp include:
– what is gentle birth
– why is it important
– how your birth choices impact your breastfeeding success
– what is HypnoBirthing and how it can help you achieve an easier, more comfortable birth
– Birth positions
– how to prepare your birth plan
– chance to listen to sharing of positive birth stories by couples who have been there & DID IT!
– infant massage and why it is important
Did you know that birth positions can make a lot of difference to a laboring mother’s level of comfort? My baby girl was a breach baby and somehow it did take a toll on my back when I was pregnant with her. Despite that, I too had a very narrow pelvis to begin with hence, in the end I had not much of a choice but to opt for C-Sec for both my children.
Did you know that there are many ways that a birth companion can help during labor? Dads love to be part of the birth process but are often reduced to being part of the wall flower, just trying to stay out of the way and not faint. During HypnoBirthing class, they teaches dads what to do to care and support and encourage their wives. Dads are very empowered with the knowledge they gain from classes and go on to be very hands on fathers.
There are so much more to share and they would be doing so in the upcoming Bootcamp event
unnamed
 “The Gentle Birth Bootcamp” which will be held on the 14th May 2017 at Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club.
Ticket Pricing
It is a highly subsided event, made possible with the support of sponsors and they are charging a minimal of RM 80 per couple but currently they are offering an extended early bird fees of only RM 50 per couple or RM 80 per 2 couples. *Not sure when this lasts, so be sure to be quick to reserve your spot with them*
For further information you can check out their website over at www.babywithbee.com.
And if you do have the time.. check out this cool Video.
Hopefully, the information above inspire you as much as it had inspired me. Now, I can’t help but cheekily wonder how fun it would be if I am pregnant once again. 😍 #justsaying

Bowhouse Pet Salon

BowhousePetSalon8

Mochi has been with us the family for over a year now. She came to us on a very special day, Easter. She was a tiny little fur ball and only weighs less than 500 gram and was the size of my palm. A new member 🐶

BowhousePetSalon9

Today, she has grown to weigh 3.8kg. A smaller sized shih-tzu breed compared to others. She was born on February 8th 2016 (herself and her younger sister). For some odd reason, she came out to be the smaller one despite being elder.

12814015_10154026209148092_5665681521282644314_n

It was instant. The connection we had was unbreakable. She got along so well with the family and everyone loves her to bits.

As the days goes by, months and now a year..

BowhousePetSalon7

I have always wanted to give her optimum care and love the best way I can (I spoil her just like another kid in the house) . It was tough as I searched for a Pet Sitter when we had to go away for a couple of days and we can’t bring her along with us. I have to say, I had experienced a fair share of unfortunate pet sitters. Some places gave her ticks (it shouldn’t have but it did) , some had accidentally hurt her, and she was disgracefully dirty when I picked her up. I feel it is a little sad that this occurred while these Pet sitters had promised me the best of the best treatment but I was truly disappointed at the end of the day with their services.

Thankfully, I found Bowhouse Pet Salon.

BowhousePetSalon1

Bowhouse Pet Salon is a place for our four-legged friends to play calmly, socialize and be pretty! They provide dog grooming service, daycare and boarding while making sure they have a good time at our playground!

BowhousePetSalon12

I sent my little fur ball there for a couple of days this month as I had to travel up North. Needless to say, she had so much fun she had over there mingling with her four legged friends. I love the spacious environment they provide as well as the play pan style boarding hence the dogs are not caged up all the time and get to roam around freely with a Pet Sitter present.

BowhousePetSalon4

Before picking her up, they gave her an awesome bath and fluff.

IMG_5732

She was in cloud nine by the time they finished.

I am truly grateful and thankful to have found Bowhouse and I can truly see the difference as when I bring my fluff ball there to visit/grooming as compared to any other Pet Salon. Some places, before bringing her inside she starts whining.

Bowhouse on the contratry provides great effort in understanding your pet and going that extra mile to provide them with love, care and provide one-to-one focus on your dog’s interaction, temperament and behavior be it when they are running around or even on the grooming table.

BowhousePetSalon2

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

img_3682

Being a momma blogger has given me so many privileges. One of them I truly treasure is when I meet and develop new friendship along the way.

Today, I would like to introduce another writer and owner of a small cleaning business in London known as Evie Horton.

evie-horton

She is my guest blogger for today, and had came up with many wonderful yet brilliant ideas that I would love to share with all you readers, to be inspired by her as to how she has inspired me.

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

furniture-1041492_1280

Today’s moms are supposed to deal with many challenges as a part of their everyday routine. They have to take up a full time job, take care of the household, look after kids and meanwhile, find a way to be fit and healthy, exercise regularly, catch up with old friends and take a well-deserved rest. It seems like 24 hours are not enough for completing these more or less pleasant activities.

Cleaning is, without a doubt, a tiresome and time-consuming process, especially if your kids consider the walls a canvas and the living room floor a playground where they can scatter all the toys. Here are a few tips that can help you keep the house clean and find time to do the things you love.

• Even if you are a stay-at-home mom, you might still find yourself unable to deal with all cleaning tasks you have to complete for the day, especially if you live in a spacious house and nobody else, but you take care of the cleanliness. That’s why you are advised to split up the tiresome cleaning chores into several manageable tasks. The best way to achieve this is to set up a cleaning schedule and assign a cleaning task for each day.

• Make an evaluation of your time. If you are among those people who tend to take “small” one-hour breaks between the duties they are supposed to perform, don’t be surprised if you never have time for yourself. Instead of procrastinating, focus all your efforts on completing the tasks efficiently and they, you will be able to enjoy some free time.

• There are some days when you just feel under the weather, you are unproductive and easily distracted. In days like this, the last thing you want to think of is keeping the house clean. Yet, you can still take up cleaning and tidying up procedures that take care of themselves. Pushing the button of the dishwasher or the washing machine is not that tiresome, right?

• Cleaning duties will be much easier if you can rely on the help of the other family members. Actually, engaging your kids into cleaning activities is an excellent way for teaching them some essential skills. For instance, your kids can learn the importance of being organized through cleaning and this will be extremely helpful at a later stage for sure.

If you consider it appropriate, follow Shiny Carpets suggestion to set a timer and perform 5 or 10-minute clean-ups in every room. Wipe the spills from the countertops, treat the stains on the carpet with a suitable detergent, mop the floors, sanitize the kitchen sink.
Organize stuff and know the place of every item. Always keep similar items together and always put stuff back in place after you have used it. You can even ask your kids to gather all the toys in the contained they belong to. This way, they will learn to sort out and prioritize, so you kill two birds with one stone. You have fewer cleaning tasks and teach your kids invaluable personal skills.

Don’t forget that if you feel you cannot deal with so many tasks at once, you can always arrange professional helpers. Take a look at the prices your local cleaning company offers and contact them to find out more about the cleaning service. That will not only save you a lot of time, but will also ensure the dirt-free environment at home. After all, there is a reason why cleaners, employed with trustworthy cleaning companies are called professionals.

Happy Treats for Mochi

img_0008

It’s finally the holidays and despite being silly with my kids, read, colour and mess up the house…

We decided to whip up our imagination and make something for the youngest member also known as our little fur kid..

img_0010

What makes the fur kid happy… Treats, Treats and MORE Treats.. so i guess it was pretty easy for us to decide on what we should make..

We wanted to make something pretty easy, healthy, and a big bonus would be to improve her breath. Don’t get me wrong, she smells like a furry princess already but there’s always no harm to make her smelling that bit extra fresh. 😛

*excuse my bland no make up look.. been down with a cold and fever since the weekend and am still recovering >.<*

img_0013

img_0002

With simple yet basic ingredients i did all the chopping (sorry kids, no playing with sharp objects in the kitchen especially the knives) while the kids did their job in mixing, mashing and fixing up the dough together.

img_0003

Ingredients we used are :

1 packet of Apple Mint Herbs

1 packet of Peppermint Herbs

1 bottle of Only Organic Baby Food Puree in Pumpkin & Wild Rice Flavour

2 Small Bananas

1 cup of whole wheat flour

1/4 spoon of baking powder

A pinch of cinnamon powder

img_0004

img_0005

It was ridiculously easy as all we did was mix up all the ingredients above together, shape them up and using a fork we pressed them down on the tray.

Results : House smells AMAZING!!! 

Verdict : Yup.. no doubt she loves them!

Loccitane Gifting Experience

img_0032

A couple of weeks ago, the husband went to Europe for work. It was probably the longest by far we have ever been apart ever since we were married. Initially, we both didn’t too much of it. 10 days, it isn’t that long and no doubt its going to pass in a jiffy with my time being consumed up with work, motherhood and chores. Furthermore, i thought to myself, we have been married for a good 7 years! A little break makes the heart fonder, right?

Gosh!! It was the toughest 10 days ever! I had been ill for the longest time (caught a horrible horrible horrible influenza from my trip to Japan). I regretted big time for not taking the flu jab before my trip back then. Non the less, a day after he left i had food poisoning which had me cried for help from my neighbours to get some anti vomiting pills as it was late in the evening and i didn’t want to resort to driving myself to the hospital while leaving my kids at home. Thankfully, i felt so much better after the next day!

As we both count down the days till we see each other again, we both missed each other very much. I am very thankful that our relationship is simply so strong that even after so many years of being together we are still working on being that mushy couple like how we have been the very first few months we met.

And so, despite sending each other endless photos of our daily life from what we ate to places we visited/went to…being away from each other, we tried little ways to make each other feel special.. one of which is a collaboration  that we had made through SMULE. *Just in case you don’t already know about SMULE, its an amazing app that allows us to sing with various people (good and bad singers – hence please don’t feel intimidated) around the globe.

Before you click on the link below~ let me share with all a little personal story/secret. I have always been really intimidated to sing, especially in front of my husband. Why? Because he is simply just gifted in singing. And ever since the very first day i went Karaoke with him i know for a fact that i was nowhere near that standard, and for a good 7 over years i had never really held a microphone nor sing with him. Whenever i was forced to, i made sure nobody could really hear my actual voice as i will request for backup singing to be left on really loud*

So, doing this really took me a lot of courage, hence.. if it doesn’t sound too good~ please do excuse your ears. >.<

As the days passed extremely slowly, I decided that i wanted to make him feel that extra special when he came back (to show how much i appreciate and treasure having him in my life). Hence, i decided to capture a very personal genuine gifting experience with L’OCCITANE by capturing a genuine gifting experience showcasing my relationship with the love of my life.

I went to L’OCCITANE at the curve to choose the gifts. It took me a good 30 minutes even though i already know the store inside out. I wanted to choose a special gift that i know he would use and appreciate.

In the end, instead of picking him a gift. I got him A BOX of Gifts!

I came home and wrote him a little note and waited for him to come home from work.

img_0031

I waited and waited.. then finally….

 

Indeed the moment was simply priceless. Thank you L’OCCITANE for this beautiful experience and this very precious memory and joy for gifting from the heart of love. This very thoughtful and heartwarming process had us expressing so much love, joy, excitement, happiness and desire for one another. Truly, we are extremely thankful and blessed!

#loccitanemalaysia #giftedwithlove #loccitanegifting

With Christmas Season just around the corner, have you decided what gifts you are going to get for that very special someone! I would most definitely highly recommend something from L’OCCITANE. What more can i say, i’m a huge fan! 🙂

 

Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Cards Review

I am one of those mommas that believes in enrichment classes. One of the most recent ones that caught my attention is called Code Juniors. As our generation revolves, teaching methods has also changed drastically as well. Flash cards are probably one of the most common cards moms/teachers/guardian starts of with for their children when it comes to learning. Well, that was me 5 years back! I still remember being excited receiving a pack of flashcards when my daughter was one years of age. I was one of those hardcore mommas where i constantly read/teach her with them. But today flash cards are no longer the same. It’s no longer 2D and boring but have became interactive flash cards!

A couple of weeks back i received one of the most amazing gifts any mother can share/teach/play with their children. These are the amazing Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Flash Cards from Code Juniors. At first these cards looks just the same as any other ordinary cards you may find at any Montessori and Bookshop. However, as i read the instructions and began to download the app i began to understand the miraculous wonder these interactive cards are for the next generation of time.

image

The instructions are extremely simple and easy to understand. I was really excited to share with my children and i couldn’t wait to see their reactions to these interactive cards.

image

By placing the cards of the respective animal, a 4D version of it pops up! *totally beyond coolness* My children were excited yet stunned at how these cards pops out an individual animal of its own while reading out its description.

image

They tried a few rounds of various animals from the cards and as each 4D animal pops up, i could see their eyes grew bigger with curiosity.

image

*Roars* says the lion…

image

Another amazing feature from these miraculous cards are the ability for the animal to interact with their food. Below shows a horse eating grass!!!! *call me “Kampung Style”  a.k.a (old fashion) but this is my first time seeing 4D+ interactive cards available in the market today to teach the children beyond the normal 2D conventional method.

image

Both my children were glued to these cards for hours. I love that it’s not only educational, it’s interactive, fun, and the children gets to experience a whole new level of creative thinking at the same time. I personally LOVE these cards.

These Animal 4D+ alphabet interactive cards are indeed an amazing development by Octagon Studio Augmented Reality creation. It is available for both Google Play or App Store!

5 Top Momma Website i just can’t get enough off…

InspirationsToday it’s all about inspirations…

I love to be inspired and constantly search online for inspiration. Like many Mothers i try to find relevance to be able to relate and be inspired as a whole, be in in terms of health, fashion, fitness, food, lifestyle and more. Thanks to technology and fast internet + data i am constantly on the roll of things today even with two active bumble bee children and an adorable pet dog.

Today, i’m sharing with all my top 5 favourite Momma Website that i often read…

Cheeserland – A fashion blogger turned Mom to two beautiful children, a personal friend and neighbour, plus one of the most famous yet longest blogger i know and followed. She has been one true inspiration that had me started this website to build, groom and grow as a person. As many local readers already know, she is truly an inspiration to many around the world (especially our local Malaysians and her extended fans over in Japan). What’s there not to love~ it’s cheesie!

Startamomblog – A mom to two beautiful little girls and the wife to a wonderful man. She inspires Mothers from all around the world to start a mom blog by guiding them with various tips and tricks while specific yet useful advice for moms to handle situations better with their children. Suzi, the author is one of the sweetest, kind, and savvy person i know (plus she is known as one amazing engineer blogger) . If you need some tips or any advice on creating a mom blog, her blog is most certainly one place you ought to visit!

Rane Chin – Also known as The Beauty Junkie from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. An inspiring yet elegant mom for 2 beautiful daughters with the latest updates on beauty, trends and gigs in town. If you haven’t seen her blog do scroll and take a look for yourself. :p

Laurenne Hopkins – I have been a silent reader of Laurenne for the longest time. The first blog i followed of hers was known as This Mummy and ever since she migrated, i find her articles has grown along with her. A mother of 2 little girls and a new born baby boy she is still as inspiring as ever. Her articles goes a long way with parenting advice and experiences, recipes, DIY and more.

Mommy My Way – A beautiful lady and single mom whom i am totally inspired by. Her blogs shares the way she raises her infant son through career advice, traveling tips, fashion inspiration and more, all while juggling a full-time job and working toward an MBA. Mind you, this brilliant lady is also an entrepreneur plus she also holds a support group in Facebook for like minded Mothers while spreading her love, support and knowledge about blogging to all. An inspiring person she is both inside and outside. *heart*

I hope this article can spark some light to some of you here as these beautiful ladies inspired me so much. 🙂

Better Sleep Month

imageDid you know that May is known as *Better Sleep Month*?

If you know me, i am an extremely light sleeper by nature. Any little noise/sounds wakes me up both day and night. I definitely DO NOT sleep a good 8 hours per day but i do value my sleep and this month (since it is sleep month) i have teamed up with Casper to give you guys some tips on having better quality sleep. 🙂

There are various factors leading to the lack of quality of sleep in general. Here are some of the identified factors that mainly contributes to sleeping problem and ways to counter them.

Anxiety

As a young little girl~ i never did enjoyed the idea of napping. It somehow tends to mess up my sleeping mode at night, leading me to find it nearly impossible to fall asleep. As i grew older, i noticed that i tend to have migraines whenever i do managed to take a nap in the afternoon. As an adult and mother of two now, I have cultivated a sleeping routine whereby i sleep by 12:30am and wakes up at 6:15am daily. These tips mentioned above indeed helped me to gained better quality sleep. However, I am also a huge fan of dehumidifier + essential oils and i believe not only it makes the room smells nice, it also helps soothes and eases me to bed easily. I love infusing the aromatic scents of lavender + lemon + peppermint. As i do regularly exercise, it has also helped with improving the quality of sleep i get daily even though i don’t sleep a full 8 hours. Needless to say, consumption of caffeine is a NO NO NO… 5 hours before bedtime for me. 😛

Do you have any sleeping tips to share? Would love to hear your thoughts on this. 🙂

ALSO, do check out Casper for further tips on quality sleeping.
