my favorite themed shoot to date!


little bubba and his best friend lexi in their national day shoot!! inspired by our grandparents who arrived on boats from around the world and made singapore! 

p.s. that mantou prop was genius! but blake, the greedy guts he is..., chomped it down so fast! when our friend showed pictures to her pals who were professionals in production (unlike us..), the first thing they noticed was the size of his bun diminishing as the photoshoot went on! LOL so typical!


these two bunnies! so alike in personality and size!! 

LOVE HEART EYES FOREVER!!!

work.. mixed with a little bit of fun!

work's been busy for a while. tradeshows, sales leads, maintaining social media and playing salesgirl at baby fairs... and while i remind myself that my real work is at home with the boys, it doesn't stop me from going all out (just my personality) for work. 

so i find myself frequently trying to juggle work, workout, friends and of course being able to care and provide for the family. it's not easy but i get a lot of satisfaction at the end of the day when i manage to tick all those boxes!


recently, we've been working on a project at work (top secret at the moment) that involves this cutie! and i must admit i was having a pretty mad day running low on fuel but to be able to run around with him at a playground (and the men had beers) and hang with his family and call that work? that was the icing on the cake. 

i don't know my future holds workwise but for now, im at a happy place! and that's a lot to be grateful for!

burst of (pommy) inspiration

have you guys been on IG stories!? i've been apprehensive about snapchat but IG stories makes it so much easier to post silly things! and what i love is... i get to chat with my friends on the side!! it was getting a wee bit too boring and quiet on IG. hence, my absence because on top of work posts, personal and IG stories.. it felt excessive until i saw.... 


POMPOMS!!!

never too many and never excessive right?


this was a work of art by Dana Haim at the loeffler randall HQ in soho! :) already so many wins in one sentence and i mean... can you imagine the behind the scenes to get this shot with their pompom sandals!! lol


love love love! maybe its time for a massive pompom project!
what do you think??

back to where it all begun...

hopping on an airplane later today and headed to my first business trip since bubs was born! hahahaha feels so important just saying that! but we are attending kids in style trade show in melbourne this weekend and representing le petit society exhibiting in our first international trade show. so many things to be proud of...

but y'know business trips and all that jazz i'd imagined.. being able to slap on a face mask, and do nothing the whole flight, flop in my hotel room at night and watch telly, or wake up to a takeaway coffee?? all went down the drain when my boys decided they would come with me!! 

hahah jokes aside, since it was melbourne, i thought it would be fun for blake to take a week off from school and hang out with his amma while i worked. plus he's easy to handle in flights. so i booked his tickets in. and then the bigger baby didn't want to miss out on the action, so he booked his own ticket to work from melbourne so guess what... the whole gang is spending national day week in melbourne!!


its going to be freezing cold. but guess what the added bonus is!!! we are spending our anniversary together where we got married!! 8 august (mental note. don't forget!!)... 

can't believe we were back there 7 years ago with our nearest and dearest in tow. and now, lugging this crazy little chubster! we plan to abandon him and go hang out somewhere cool and go for a nice dinner! hah! we'll see how that goes!! 

happy national day singapore! we'll see you when you're older! thanks for guarding our lives, dreams and little boy! we'll be hanging around for a bit longer!

next stop on the adventure train ... Amsterdam!

if it were up to bubbie, we would be spending another week in Copenhagen but can't keep dwelling in old favorites, can we? so we hopped on a train from Paris and hit up Amsterdam which was such a lovely city! 


by this stage, our wardrobe is looking a little random!! but this was us at their markets hunting down some proffertjes! best snack ever!! 

all this european food left me feeling a little like this chubby friend of blake's!


Amsterdam was chilled and child friendly, not unlike the rest of the european cities we've been to! The shopping was great on the home front but i didn't manage to score many clothing/fashion pieces! I guess at that stage of our travels, we've already been to london and paris and pretty much filled out bags!

we loved how accessible the entire city was via our little bicycles! somehow if a trip involved wheels, it makes everyone happy! we didn't go with a box bike this time as we had quite a fair bit of distance to travel and poor D always does the heavy lifting when it comes to cycling. but the bike paths were awesome and definitely tourist friendly! 


we were told by my lovely co-worker that amstelpark was a must for little boys! hah! there was no way we were leaving the park without a ride on this train! :) 

can't wait for next year's summer vacation! wonder where we would be!! maybe its time to do a bit more of asia? or the america? woolessee!! :)
