In a blink of the eye we are now in September and in a few months time it will be time we will be preparing for Christmas and 2017. It is time again to start another reflection on how the 3rd quarter of 2016 has been going for me.
I can say that since putting down in writing my amended goals for 2016 I have been deliberately more focus on my health goals. I remove myself from situations whereby I would be tempted by unhealthy food and make a bad choice which I may regret later.
Even though I focused on healthy eating more I did give myself allowance for treats like cake.
The cake which I could not refuse taking a bite from this month was Tiger girl’s birthday cake. This month she celebrated her 6th birthday and had a party with her friends.
I ordered this custom made Shopkins cake for her as she is crazy about this toy. Doesn’t it look so adorable!!! Tiger girl was thrilled when she saw the cake and her eyes lit up like diamonds.
August has always been a special month for me. It is my birthday month and I get to indulge in treats that I have been holding back for the rest of the year.
August is the month when I look back at the past year and count my blessings. Showing gratitude is important and reflecting on my growth for the past year I’m glad with the decisions that I made back then.
I have increased my knowledge and perused all my passions in education, cooking, photography and psychology. Constant learning is extremely important to me as it helps shape me into a better person.
August was a month where the kids and I had new experiences. It was the first time that we attended a fashion event which was hosted by Uniqlo. They got to get up and close with models and understand how they do their job.
We also saw the latest collection and are looking forward to adding a few more pieces from that collection into our wardrobe.

I made some adjustment to the breakfast routines and incorporated Oats among other items to let them have a good start to each day. Healthy eat is what I’m seriously focusing on this year.
Trying out new/ different restaurants have always been something the kids and I love to do. This month we went to the Hello Kitty Restaurant to have a meal. The food wasn’t really top notch and it was more for the ambiance then to satisfy our palette. I’ll be replicating some of the dishes that we ate there at home for the kids.
