Updates again!

This holiday is quite a fruitful one! Thank God!!

I knew that I needed to spend time out of the house and meet up with friends etc....so I was diligent in getting all the stuff packed in my new place!:)

I met with two lovely NUS friends who are also teachers and we had a meal at my favourite place, Bistro Du Vin. I love the set lunch served there. You get quality french food at a good price. The set lunch cost $34 ++ and it comes with an appetizer, main course, dessert and coffee or tea. Good food and if you have not tried the food there, this is a place to consider for special occasions or just a normal date out!
I am not gonna blog much about what I ate. U can see them from the photos. The menu should be on their website. We had lunch at the Shaw Centre branch. I heard that there is another outlet in Zion Road (near Great World City) and the set lunch is slightly cheaper there. :)
After lunch, we went to Clickz studio in Far East Plaza for a mini photoshoot. I am not good at posing for photos so not uploading any pics of our shoot but I must say clickz studio is an excellent studio for family photos and just a photoshoot with friends! We had lots of fun and I am already planning one for my family...:)

Brought baby out on my own to Nex Mall on one of the weekday mornings and I have never seen Nex mall so empty before but really, it is always a good feeling to walk in an empty mall. I had KFC porridge for the first time and love it! :) I believe that my first time bringing the baby out without the husband is a success so there will be more of such solo outings with the baby. #LOOKINGFORWARD

We had our first swim together as a family for the first time. Baby was very quiet throughout the ten minutes in the pool. Could see that he's a little scared! :( will try swimming again next week...

I bought my first Gucci bag this holiday and I am still very happy with my purchase..got it at a good price...thanks to the brother in law for this good Lobang! U know buying a new bag can make me happy for a few days? #easilycontented? This new Gucci bag is big enough to dump all my things that I always need to bring to work. Can't wait to use it on Monday..

Writing this post makes me feel that despite the many challenges I face, God is good to bless me with so many things. I am very thankful.

Sunday is coming to an end. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Love,
Jas

Last week and this week

Last week, I moved out of my parents' place to stay on our own. Thank God for this lovely place which has an awesome view. Before we left, we celebrated my mum's birthday in Shang Palace. It was a good lunch and I am impressed with the service provided by them. I will be blogging more on my mum's birthday soon...when I get my Internet connection at my new place! Anyway, we terminated our Internet connection contract with singnet and we are now with my Republic. Staying away from my parents will mean less help as they will not be around to care for the baby at night. I know most parents do not have as much as my husband and I. I am thankful for all the help we have. Not staying with my family will mean no home cooked food unless I decide I want to cook. I will cook occasionally and post the recipes on this blog. Yar...if I succeed in whipping up a nice dish. #hubbyasguineapig
There is only one eating house near my new place and thank God the food there is pretty good. We had mushroom minced meat noodles, lor mee and bak ku teh. All three were great! I can foresee more meals of instant noodles and instant porridge as we are pretty lazy to drive out most of the time. Oh, there is a free shuttle bus from our condo to a nearby mall but the thought of having to dress up to go to the mall makes us feel tired. We are not people who will travel far for good food. Yes, so we stocked up many instant noodles and all the instant stuff for days we are too lazy to even go to that nearby food court.

Baby is getting too demanding recently. He wants to be carried all the time. Sigh.

The week so far!

Baby loves to sleep on his side and this picture never fails to make me smile! :)


I was unwell and went to see a doctor. The clinic was full so I decided to go to a nearby coffee shop to have a cup of tea while waiting for my turn. I could be already in a good mood but drinking this $1 tea made me happy! :) #simplelife



I need a Saint Laurent satchel and this is quite nice but it is sold out! Boo! :(

I need a small bag so that when I go out with the boy on my own, I will just sling the small bag on one of my shoulders and the HUGE diaper bag on the other. #lifeofamum


BEST BUY of the week! This Fisher Price toy keeps my son entertained so I can do my stuff (i.e. Facebooking :P) while keeping an eye on him from a distance....

:) 



I am going for a church wedding in a few days' time and I need a new dress! Mango dresses range are good and they usually fit me well and so I have shortlisted three of the dresses. Which one should I buy? Buying from Zalora. Love online shopping! :) #onlineshoppingisbestformums




Zalora has kindly decided to give you a discount off your purchase! Type in "ZAJASMINE15" to enjoy 15% off your purchase! 
A little perk for readers of my blog, yes?

Have a great week! :)


Thankful Tuesday

These days, with so many things on hand to do, I rarely have time to think through what happened during the day and give thanks. So, I set aside today to give thanks to God for his provision to us and I am blogging about it. 

For the past two weeks, it was a mad rush for me. We decided that we want to move out of my parents' place and live independently with our little kid. It is a big decision for us as since the birth of our child, we have been staying with my parents and are kind of a little reliant on them. I am glad that we chose to stay with them for these past two years as my relationship with my parents (especially my mum) strengthened a lot and the husband got to know my parents better too. Of course, with my husband staying with my parents, I know it is no easy task for him as he is the only one who has to adapt to our lifestyle. I have lived with my parents almost all my life and he, from a different family which has a different kind of habits and lifestyle, will have some difficulty getting used to our way of doing things but he persevered (Thanks, dear!). I thank God for understanding parents who try to make his stay a comfortable one. I thank God for the opportunity to stay together. Now is the time for us to move out and be on our own. When we finally decided that we should, I was tasked to search for a place. If you know me, I like to do things quick and without much delay and soon I was searching through Propertyguru.com.sg a few times a day. Deciding on the location was no easy matter too as I have to take into account my workplace which is in Bedok, my parents' place in Paya Lebar (I want them to visit me often so it is good to be near them too) and my parents-in-law's place in Hougang (my mum-in-law takes care of the baby when we are working so it is very important to be near her). Thank God, in just a week, we found a place to rent and will be moving in in the beginning of September. I will be sharing pictures of my place soon and its facilities. I like the family oriented facilities in that condo development and am already thinking of buying a unit there. Anyway, I am praying and letting God lead me in our journey of finding a new home. I thank God for this rented unit as when I finally decided on this development, the units that I am interested in were all rented out but God gave us a better unit which came to us in a miraculous way. I can't be more thankful and I look forward to our adventure in our new place. 

All glory be to God!
