Sunday afternoon, Mil was out with us. When she suggested tea break, I thought of The Tiramisu Hero. Mil told her she’s been to the cafe twice with her friends. The owner happened to be Daughter of her Friend. Cool.

My Creme Brûlée Latte was served in a very cute cup. I had asked about the price of the cup as it’s tempting to bring one home. The waitress told me it will be cheaper if I bring home the cup I used compared to brand new. New concept for me.
Ordered the Lemon Lavender Tiramisu to try. It was bit too sweet for me and I didn’t get to taste Lavender. Still prefer Gastronomic Tiramisu.
Shall try original flavour next time. We ordered Waffle Ice Cream too. The cream and truffle waffle tasted incredible 😊
Here’s my kids in the rocking horse.
We will be back!
One afternoon, hubby was taking his weekend naps and I accompanied the kids in the living room. At home, they are always together.
This time, sharing a bowl of baby snacks as they watched tv. Leia didn’t mind that the baby snacks was a little bland, she enjoyed the sharing moment.
Kryston is a foodie. Whenever he sees his Sister eating fruits, he would point and goes “Mom Mom” asking to have some.
Also I observed that he would look at his Sister from time to time. They have been loving towards each other.
My greatest reward in life is having them.
Last weekend, we had a durian party family gathering at my place. Mil made the loveliest and delicious Siew mai at first attempt.
Our table was filled with food and what made the dinner enjoyable was sharing the table with my family. Jasmine, my younger Sister works with my in-law and they have great relationship so are my parents with mil.
Leia is close to my siblings too. They were more than just uncles and aunt to her. She talks to them like friends, played many games together whenever she stays at my mum’s place.
These days with a great helper Lisa, we get to eat homecooked food most of the time. For dinner, we only dine out once or twice a week.
The main highlight of this gathering was, Durian.
Told my Brother about having durian party at my place. He got the durians from a reliable seller at Pasir Ris. The Mao San Wang durians were so popular, he had to call in and ask for the schedule of delivery. According to him, usually sold out within 2 hours.
And we had the opportunity to savour the creamy, sweet, bitter durian with extremely thin seed.
Do you know you can remove the durian smell from your hands simply by running water over the white inner shell to your hands ?
My siblings were stunned and convinced by the experiment 😊
Had an early birthday lunch with Cousin iris. Glad I ordered a customised chiffon Melody from my Friend, Ms Zhou.
Cousin Iris was surprised and wowed by the cake. And knowing she was happy made me really happy.
We have much in common such as love for Jujube.
And lunch was at Watami. Japanese food is always a good idea.
Cousin Iris didn’t want to let me pay for the bill and I insisted. Special day special treat.
Many more cakes, nice lunches and happiness to come.
One Saturday, we attended my Cousin’s Baby Shower Party at Jurong Safra. The function room makes a great venue for special occasion.
Cute tsum tsum micky theme. Next month I will need to prepare Kryston’s Birthday Party. Hmm I guess I will need dessert table which doubles as a photo booth too.
Gotten a Minnie Mouse Cupcake and Flower Cupcake.. I still like cream over fondant.
Leia gets to mingle with her extended cousins. Watched them grow from toddlers to primary school girls.
The buffet spread was brilliant and Glad to celebrate a joyous full month party of a handsome baby boy, Jace. Now we have more boys to join our big family.
On the way back in the car… Kryston was so excited over the balloon we took back from Party.
When he is in high spirits, he closes his eyes like this …! We called this “Cute Eyes”
Big Sister joined in for pictures with Grandma Audrey in the background. Bret told Leia “Your teeth are coming off and Didi is growing teeth.”
My loving girl who loves her little Brother. She said, “Kryston is the cutest in the world!”
Blogging this cutest moment and mummy loves you both soooo much !
Sometimes, Best Friend B and I would do impromptu lunch together. I had strong cravings for my Favourite Nasi Padang at Far East Plaza.
My kinda-Happy Meal. I love and cleared everything on my plate. The nasi(rice) & balachan chilli is exceptionally nice 👍🏻 I can hardly find another place comparable to this stall.
Great place for Chilli-lovers.
After this, I will need to adopt a much clean-er diet which means Minimise Fried Food, Meat & Carbo like White Rice, Yellow Noodle. After giving birth, my metabolism rate slows down and I have really stubborn water retention. The days of eating anything is over for me.
A good friend has introduced an affordable vegetarian meal replacement and Chia seed.
Something has got to change, am doing it.
Once in a while, mil would bring Leia to her Big Aunt’s place for sleepover. My girl will be thrilled on this day because she gets to bunk in with her first playmate, Jesslyn. And now that we have Kryston who loves her so much, he seemed a bit sad to know big Sister will not be home.
Leia noticed the gloomy look on Kryston & cheered him, “I promise I will hug you first thing when I am back in the morning.”
Next morning… we heard the door opened and Leia gave her baby Brother a hug. So fast I didn’t get to take a picture. Siblings Promise fulfilled.
Kryston held onto his sister’s hand. Clearly, it was a precious sight.
Leia began to read to him and he continues to held onto her as he used the other hand to reach out the soft book.
They are 6 years apart yet Leia is the first and only who can make Kryston laugh out loud. When he’s in the mood for play, his eyes widened with excitement the moment he sees Leia.
Leia loves to hug Kryston and I hope she will remember the many milestones of her baby Brother.
Love them both.
