Traveling to Korea Part 2

Hello readers! Day 2 was a day filled with fun adventure. Starting the day out early we headed off to Myeongdong in search for food. Our mission was to search for the famous Issac Toast. It wasn’t too far from our location but it did take us a good 15 min brisk walk to get there with the kids.

The line was rather long when we got there. Thankfully it didn’t take too long for it to be our turn.

Verdict. It was definitely something worth trying. We ordered 2 toast surprisingly the kids finished up most of it for us. 😂 😍 #aslongastheyeatallisgood

We then headed for Coffee. I was once told that Korean has pretty amazing coffee and both the husband and I do not deny it.

Sometimes I think it could be the milk they use. It’s creamy but light at the same time (does that makes any sense?) 

IMG_7506

We walked along and the next thing we saw had me and the little girl grinning from cheek to cheek.

IMG_7518

This is so darn pretty! AND its made from premium quality ingredients too!!!!!!

IMG_7527

Our next stop was to visit the all time favourite tourist spot Gyeongbokgung Palace. It was only about less than 3km away but we decided to catch a cab there instead of walking with the two little ones. 😂

The Palace was really huge. We were extremely thankful that even though the sun was shining it wasn’t hot at all. As I could describe it, we had fabulous weather that afternoon.

We then walked along Gyeongbokgung area and decided to head on over to try the famous Tosokchon Samgyetang.

IMG_7542

Once we had gotten inside and settled down. We (the husband and i) pretty much had our main focus right on the KIMCHI. It is SOOOO GOOD!!!

IMG_7543

They packed little cute bottles of ginseng to be added into the chicken broth to combine with its dish. Despite it being a bit pricy, the kids definitely loved the chicken.

*which this momma has missed out on taking the photo* >.<

We then headed over to Dongdaemun but shopping wasn’t our priority for this trip but the little girl insists she wanted a photo with LINE BEARIMG_7555

…..back to MyeongDong we headed and soon after our first damage was made…

*I swear, MyeongDong left us with quite a positive impression after our first purchase* 😂

Later that evening, the husband had an itch to scratch. YESSS.. SALSA!

Traveling to Korea Part 1

I love traveling. Who doesn’t , right?

…get to explore a new place.. breathe in new air… learn a new culture… see fantastic architecture… try amazing new food.. see some amazing people…and the list goes on and on and on..

KoreaTripPart11

It was recently that we (my family and i) traveled to Korea. It has been a place that was on my bucket list to visit other than the amazing Japan that I can never get bored of exploring. But the decision to visit the country was pretty much a no brainer especially when I have been completely hooked with Korean Dramas lately. Secretly madly in love with Ji Jang Wook and Sunghoon which the hubs has been strangely supportive with my newly found  affair with them on TV.

Back to the trip…..

As the kids are no longer toddlers, they are now much easier to communicate with (as for which if they will listen or not, thats another story to tell all together… HAHAHHA). I have been really thankful that traveling by air with them has always been smooth sailing.

KoreaTripPart12

Our flight was 8am in the morning hence we had to be at the airport by 6am. We called the cab to pick us up which he came around 5am. Needless to say, the kids were knocked out a couple of hours in our flight and both had an hour plus nap (woohoo … break time for me!)

KoreaTripPart13

I was pretty excited as I didn’t know what to expect when we reach Korea so I was up all the way.. 😁

KoreaTripPart14

We arrived around 3:30pm and by the time we reached our Airbnb at almost 5pm and was ridiculously hungry!!! I had a pathetic tasting Nasi Lemak on the plane which I ended up not eating.

On the contratry, upon arriving our Airbnb was really fantastic. It is located at Cheonggyecheon-ro Stream which was only walking distance to Myeongdong. Large enough to fit 6- 8 pax. Depending on how big/small you are in size.

It was a loft style concept and I was completely in love with the design of this place when I first saw it. It reminded me bit of Japan as it was pretty small and cozy. We couldn’t exactly stand up and walk around upstairs as we needed to crawl to move from one place to another. For me and the husband, it was a pretty cool experience. Once we dropped our bags we went on our first Food Hunt.

We walked across the street to arrive at Myeongdong and soon saw this BBQ restaurant that caught our eye.

KoreaTripPart15

We ate and ate and ate..

Collage_Fotor

The food was amazing!

We then walked around Myeongdong Street and did a bit of shopping and more eating. 🙂

KoreaTripPart112

By now, it was close to 9pm and we were all pretty tired, but excited at the same time. Time seems to past really fast too. It was definitely way past sleeping time for the kids. Mind you, my kids sleeps really early everyday and they wakes up really early as well. So soon after dessert we decided to head back to rest.

Soon after bathing, my babies were snuggled up sleeping together while I had the perfect view to watch them sleep throughout the night. #preciousmoment #motherslove

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

I love the fact that to them the dogs comes first, and they truly take this as a priority!

Here are some of their services (taken directly from their site).

Coco2U Nature’s Miracle

img_2287

Reality strikes as the year moves onto 2017. Age is most certainly catching up, as I urge to try my very best to maintain my youth and being an active momma for 2 Bright, Brilliant and Blooming kids can be rather tough sometimes. I have tried various products over the years and I have been really fond of products that are derived from 100% natural sources and toxin- free ingredients that include brands (that I have personally tried) such as 100%Pure®, XYLIQUE, COCO2U. Recently, I have yet discovered a new range of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Skincare Series.

img_0003

Being a huge fan or coconut I was extremely excited when the products arrived my doorstep. The brand COCO2U uses all ingredients that are derived from 100% natural source. Virgin Coconut Oil is an effective component for skin care treatment. The virgin coconut oil is high in antioxidants that pass through into the concealed cells of the skin. The oil helps protect the body versus the formation of totally free radicals which are molecules that rob electrons from the millions of cells in the body. These free radicals are known to damage and also ruin cells including the body’s connective tissues. These cells are accountable for maintaining the skin flexible and also versatile. Hence, the wonders of this series is known to assists in strengthening these connective tissues while preventing skin sagging and also wrinkling. Meanwhile, It does the amazing wonders of softening as well as hydrating the skin, and eliminates filth from the outer layer of the skin making it healthy, smooth with a  natural glow from within.

img_0004

COCO2U is designed and formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Botanical Active Ingredients that delivers great and effective result. In this series, I tried the full range of products known as the Hydrating Cleanser, Pore Refining Tonique, The Luminous Serum, Bioactive Day Moisturiser, and The Bioactive Night Moisturiser.

img_0008

Hydrating Cleanser 

This hydrating Cleanser is designed and formulated with organic virgin coconut oil, aloe vera and AquaCacteen to soothe and hydrates the skin, while providing cleansing. It is excellent for all skin types and its even gentle enough to remove makeup. AquaCacteen is an ultra-refined elixir from an organic cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) which soothes and hydrates both women’s and men’s skin.

Directions : Wet hands and face, pump onto hands and massage onto damp skin in circular motions and rinse off with warm water. I use this every morning and night. 

img_0011

Pore Refining Tonique 

This pore refining tonique is designed and formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Mushroom Extract to help visibly reducing the pore size and also improving its texture and tone. I personally did see some visible changes to my pores during the first week from using this series.

Directions : After cleansing, put a generous amount of Pore Refining Tonique on a cotton pad and gently glide it over the face. I use this twice a day, both morning and night. 

img_0005

Luminous Serum

An intensive treatment that organically replenishes and rehydrates the skin for instance radiance and softness. This light, fast absorbing, hydrating Luminious serum instantly penetrates and infuses the skin with organic virgin coconut oil, niacinamide, vitamin C, and tropical oils to bio-actively re-energise and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it with a smoother, natural radiance and glow.

Directions : Apply to face and neck after cleansing and toning. I used this twice a day and is currently one of my favourite serum in my daily skin care regimen as upon application, it inspires a very natural glow while rejuvenates my tired, stressed skin. 

img_0012

BioActive Day Moisturizer

Loaded with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and natural botanical active ingredients such as Olive Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Extract, and Vitamin E, this moisturiser aggressively increases skin firmness and makes skin more youthful and glowing. Best part is, this moisturiser comes with SPF20 as well.

Directions : Apply to face and neck every evening after cleansing, toning, and serum application. 

img_0009

I am truly fond of these products and began noticing changes to my skin upon using it for only a week. Being able to find organic products that works is not easy and I can say for a fact, these products works very well for me and my skin. One fact that I love is that these products Do Not Promote Animal Testing, No Artificial Preservatives Used, No SLS, No Parabens and No Petroleum Derived Chemicals.

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

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..

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 >.<*
