Flashback to Dec 2016


January has been absolutely madness as we ease into the 3 kid in full day school routine.  There has been so many things that have been dragged over from 2016 that was not done due to the school holidays. I couldn’t find the time to really sit down and finish up with my blogging commitments.

The kids and I went out a lot during the December holidays. During one of the outings Tiger girl met both the Gingerbread Man and Santa Claus at one of the malls we were in.  She also received a balloon sculpture rabbit from the Christmas party we attended. It’s really cute how by twisting two different colored balloons one can form a rabbit.

We ate out a lot during the school holidays and I really need to cut down on eating out as it is really super expensive and has been burning a hole in my pocket.

Creme Brulee is one of the desserts that I love eating and it was a real treat to be able to eat it at a restaurant. I personally have yet to try to make that sweet dessert at home as one would need a blow torch to achieve the caramelized top in that dish.

Chocolate Lava Cake is the other sweet dessert which I love savoring.  This is a dessert which I need to get around baking . I love how the chocolate oozes out of the  heated cake. Having it paired with vanilla ice-cream is really heavenly.

Highlights of November 2016

November was a really roller coaster month for me with lots of highs. You can say that I was on an extended adrenaline rush last month as I saw the fruits to the hard work that I have been putting in since the start of the year.

It was another reflective month for me as I pondered about the color of a person’s heart  and how easy it is for one to stray from the right path and away from GOD.

Many a times we are so tempted to give up as the challenges get too overwhelming for us to handle. However looking at how far we have come so far it would be a waste just to give it all up because we think we can’t hang on anymore.

November was a month that the kids and I had more time to spend together as a family.  We visited more places in and out of Singapore and had great fun exploring and soaking in the various experiences.

We were literally zooming around as we tried out the various activities that the kids were interested in.

Monkey boy's results for PSLE 2016

It was celebration after celebration when Monkey boy’s PSLE results was released. The hard work that he has been putting in had paid off and now he is reaping the fruits of his labor.  He has chosen the school which he is interested in entering and now am waiting for the result of that application.

As Monkey boy enters teen hood I’ve started reading up more about how teenagers are and I strongly recommend the book 1-2-3 Magic teens  as it will give you a better insight to how teenagers think and behave.

It has been an extremely long time since I had a girls night out.  Since the kids arrived it had been impossible to go out without them at night. However with some careful planning I manage to pull it off!!

How was your month of November?
