Worry less, Smile more


Recently we went to a friend’s baby shower. it was a lovely event, the decoration is all pink and flowery because my friend is going to have a baby girl, first daughter for her who is already a mom of a handsome son.

Also not too long ago, my sister had her first daughter. the delivery went smoothly and both mom and baby are healthy. My parents were beyond estactic, this is their second grandkids but also first grandaughter for them. This also means our son had his first female cousin.

These two occasions somehow reminded us of the time we had our baby back in 2013 which we remember at that time it brought us the feeling of happiness but also anxious at the same time.

(all about the) Money

It’s time for some real talk, money talks! Its one topic that we have a love and hate relationship, mostly hate though, because just like the great notorious B.I.G said mo’ money mo’ problem (excuse us, our real age is showing)

Our attitude towards money is a result from years of life conditioning within our family and also the society surrounding us. we cannot deny that the way our family or people we know spend their money somehow affect our ways of spending and also saving money.

got Milk?

The first thing that sprung over our mind when we heard the word condensed milk are usually ‘aren’t those things full of sugary stuff that’s so unhealthy?’

No kidding, we usually drink either fresh milk or UHT at home. while canned of condensed milk are kept for cooking ingredients only because of that ‘too many sugars’ stigma.

Were we wrong all this time? or were we just didn’t get our facts right?

We’re going back and forth about posting this entry and truthfully we had another topic prepared for this week’s blog entry but we just can’t let go last week’s governor’s election without commenting on it.

First of all, this is a family blog therefore there will be no political message or critique to government. that’s not us. we just want to relate from the family side of view.

Finding Quality Time

qual·i·ty time
noun
  • time spent in giving another person one’s undivided attention in order to strengthen a relationship, especially with reference to working parents and their child or children.

in between our daily hustle and bustle as a full time worker, part time pie maker wannabe and on top of all of that parent to a super active three and half year old boy. it s really really hard.. no strike that.. its impossible to make sure that we already dedicated quality time for the three of us as a family.

many many times we were reminded the importance of quality time and how it can affect the quality of life whether presently or in the future for us as a parent and most importantly our child. they are after all the future generation, therefore we as a parent are thoroughly responsible for the goodness of future generation.

man, such a heavy topic for such a simple family blog.

We’re ready for 2017.

The inevitable end of year post. We bet that every post on social media today is about the year 2016 for them, and yes, including this post!

Reflecting our 2016, we’ve experienced many ups and downs. We were grateful for our ups and we’re certainly even more grateful for our downs. We’d like to think that we wouldn’t had our up moments if we didn’t get to experience our down moments (easier said than done, but we tried our best!)

We hope, we will be ready for everything that 2017 will throw to us and our mantra for 2017 and the years ahead is summed up by this picture below.
