Edusave Awards

Super proud Mummy moment today to see both children receiving awards. 😁 We left church slightly earlier so that we can make it for the awards ceremony at 2.15pm. We had a quick bite at the nearby MacDonalds. 
The children were ushered to a room when we reached. We were told it’s a secret and we would know later. The children only said they need to write their names on the envelopes. 
The mystery unfolded when we went to the hall. MP Sitoh explained that he would like the children to show appreciation to their parents since parents do play a part in helping the children to achieve this award. 

They wrote the messages behind the cards. 

Their grandparents came down to support them too! Indeed it takes a kampong to raise the children. 

I’m declaring academic and non-academic success upon both of them. 2018 will be even more glorious for both of them. 

And now I have to find time to bank on the cheques. 😄

Circle Dress

When the mood is here, she gets another dress. A circle dress which she likes all cos she can spin in it. Hahaa.

Shopkins Dress

Shopkins. 😍 Celestiel has outgrown such print. Anyway this dress is not for her. It is for a friend’s daughter who is turning 6 this year. Glad that she loves it. 
Sewing is really very therapeutic, at least to me. It calms and relaxes my soul. When I sew, I get to chew on the Word and at times, listen to the sermon too. 😁

Chewy found all his BB badges back at MIL’s place. He took the opportunity to share the history of these badges with Cephas. #humblebragging

It’s pretty cold lately and I’m not joking. The gir is in jeans and jacket and her hands are still cold. It’s winter in Singapore now! 🤣🤣🤣 
Love the print of the Patricia blouse she’s wearing. So chic! 😍

Serger and Cheongsam

I’m so excited. I finally own a serger. I have been waiting to get this toy for the longest time. I first touched a serger during my sewing class last December. I fell madly in love with the machine. The finishing is so much prettier and of cos, it’s so much easier to sew the seams with one. But this little machine is pretty intimidating in the inside. The threading took me a few hours to figure out though I did learn to thread in the shop. 
And with this serger, I found the motivation and energy to sew! Hahaa. And yes, I’m finally sewed my second cheongsam.

This is the other option of the cheongsam I sewed the other time. This is the flared skirt version which I like. Love the material which I bought it Bangkok. It’s not cleared in the picture but it’s a doggie print. Very apt for the year of Doggie. Ignore the mess at the background. I was too exited to take a picture and didn’t clear the mess. 
Did make a few mistakes and took me a while to recap the steps. But it’s done and I’m so proud of myself.  I hope I will find the motivation to add in the pockets. I’m often too lazy to revisit a done project.

Kitchen is Still Open

This year I have opted to work part time. I’m on a 3/4 load. Unfortunately I didn’t get the kind of timetable I hope for. My timetable is pretty heavy cos of my subject combination. I’m doing 2 Math and 1 Science and one of the Math is for a P5 class, HA class. It’s pretty challenging but guess, I just have to move along. 
Despite me going back to work, I will continue the schedule as per last year. I will cook for two nights a week. Not that I really enjoy cooking but the children especially Celestiel tends to eat more when I cook. She’s pretty much a fussy eater and because I cook, she doesn’t dare to waste food. She will slowly finish whatever I put in her bowl. She does know how to bully the grandparents when she eats over there. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Honestly, my cooking hasn’t progressed much. Hahaa. All my energy is channeled to sewing. It’s a simple meal. However, I do make sure I boil a decent pot of soup for them. Bean sprout. Lately the children have a sudden interest of eating bean sprouts. My first time frying it. Amazingly it’s a very simple vegetable to prepare.

Badge Pinning Ceremony

We woke up early to go to Cephas’ school. A morning of activities for us. 
The programme started with the badge pinning ceremony. It’s like officially welcoming the boys to the school. And as parents, when we pinned the badge onto his uniform, we are pledging to do our part to support him in this exciting journey. 

It’s also open house for the CCA. Cephas didn’t even bother to check out other CCA. He just led us to the B.B. booth. 

Yes, he has pledged his allegiance to BB! 🤦🏻‍♀️😆

Thought this is a very interesting postcard. It has picture of all the badges. 
Anyway, we did insist he checked out other booths with us. There is a flying club in his school. Interesting. 
After this was a long briefing by various subject teachers. The system has changed much since we graduated. Sadly, there’re tests this term. I thought he could play and enjoy school for a semester. 🤭 There are so many slides, so much information. Seriously, I walked out of the hall, not remembering much! Hahaa.

Chosen One

It has been such an exciting week for Cephas in school. It’s the orientation week and I’m pretty surprised there are so many audition taking place. 
The boy came home with these letters telling me that he has been selected for the water polo team and drama club. Wow! I’m pretty impressed. It’s must be a time of restoration for him since he was not selected for any niche CCA when he was in Primary school. Guess it’s no brainer to know that he has asked me to sign to reject all the invitations. Sigh. Water polo sounds exciting, don’t you agree? Anyway, he has set his heart on BB. 

Thw boy wore his no. 2 uniform to school today. The secondary school has so many variations for uniform. 

He’s off for a one night camp. Yet another exciting day for him.
