Tiger Girl's Birthday cake

Tiger Girl’s Birthday cake

Another month has whizzed past and now we are into the last quarter of 2016. September was another birthday month for us as Tiger girl celebrated her 6th birthday with a bash at an indoor playground. It was the first time that she was given an opportunity to celebrate her birthday with her friends and classmates and she was really excited to have her wish come true. There was a party planner and they had party games, snacks and free play at the indoor playscape after the party.

My little girl will be entering primary school soon and start a whole new chapter of her life.  September not only marks a change in age but a change in appearance for her as she recently got her ears pierced.  I had been asking her for a few years if she was interested in getting her ears pierced but it was only now that she feels that she is ready for it.

It was a rather painless experience for her and it took only 5 minutes to get both sides pierced.  Waiting until she was ready for the procedure did help as she was mentally prepared and not frighten about it.

As we enter the 4th term of school the kids are all busy preparing for the final exams. Monkey boy is doing his PSLE this year and had been busy studying for this final leg. Tomorrow will be his final paper – Higher Chinese then he is done with all the exams that he will have to take during his primary school years.  He will be taking a break from studies and spending more time perusing his hobbies from next week onwards.

Monkey boy will be having more time to practice his piano and follow up on research projects that he had to shelf due to the PSLE exams. I’m sure he can’t wait to get started!!

September was also a month that I started a new nutritional cleansing routine. To increase the impact of the program I have been stepping up my exercise regime and including various activities which will certainly aid in helping to my ideal shape and weight.

Highlights of May 2016

May was one of the most chaotic months for me. Even though I had a break from my studies I was busy coaching the boys as it was the exam month for them.  Monkey boy’s study schedule will be getting more and more intensive as his Prelim Exams are around the corner.

While taking a break from studies I spent more time pondering on my directions for the rest of 2016.  It will get even more busy in the 2nd half of this year as  my workload will be increasing.   Looking at blooms certainly helps to keep one’s spirit high and focused.

Ramen

I aim to start trying out new dishes again to add to the existing menu. I’m going to add more low-carb dishes to the weekly meals to make it a more healthy eating experience for the kids and me.  Yummy eats are something which I will be working on.

I intend to  sign up for a Japanese cooking class if I do come across a suitable one. I certainly need a hands on session with a Japanese chef.
