Parents’ observation day at music school

Today we were invited for parents observation during Noelle’s music class. Noelle has been attending this once weekly class since March 2017. Compared to my first time attending with her, she has shown major improvements (in less than 4 months) – her listening skill, taking instruction, following sequence, focus and etc. Most importantly, we are seeing a really happy and independent girl in the class! We were proud parents for the mere less than 10 minutes today!

The teacher did a good job in explaining to us what the kids were doing in the class. She also explained that every kid progress at different pace and assure parents that we don’t have to worry about their progression.

Sweet Cherry Warehouse Sale 15-18 July 2017

This is our first time surveying and going to Sweet Cherry Warehouse sale; as we are looking for a lightweight stroller that can fit at least one of the two kids! The warehouse is located at their factory or headquarter somewhere in Seri Kembangan (just followed waze to get there).

This is a rather small warehouse sale compared to My Dear warehouse sale. There were limited baby clothes and more on bulky purchases like baby cots, bath tub and strollers. Most customers were there looking for strollers, which indeed going much more cheaper compared to their normal retail price (also online sites – we did a survey on Lazada to make price comparison).


We finally got this stroller! Besides the lower price, with Public Bank credit card we get an additional 5% off.


They also provide the service of fixing up the strollers for the purchases. 


And finally one mission completed ✅ 


It actually fits up to 15kg (though Noelle now weighs 15.7kg). 

Steamed pork rib with carrot, red dates and wolfberries 


Ingredients:

Pork ribs (about half kg), coated with tapioca starch and pepper 

Carrot, diced

Red dates

Wolfberries 

Ginger, sliced finely

Dashes of liquid aminos

One tbsp sesame oil

Marinated it for an hour in the fridge. Steamed for 50 minutes under high heat. It came out tender! 


My first time cooking pork rib actually with the intention of letting Nikki try the different parts of pork – but she didn’t want to try it! 😴😴😴 Guess she prefers trotter! 🙄🙄 
Fortunately Noelle eats some of it!

Easy recipe to keep for confinement! 

Squeeze Me Baby

We were given these samples by a friend. The gift was actually wrapped up in a box with free tokens to fill the Squeeze Me Baby bags. The fillers are actually fresh fruits puree.

We went to their One Utama outlet and had it filled. Before we fill it, the babies were allowed to try the different flavours that they have. They do give recommendation based on age. Each pack, if I am not mistaken, cost about RM10-11.

At that point, N2 showed no interest at all but N1 was actually enjoying the sampling. But once trying at home, N2 seems to hook on it! 

Personally, I think this is convenient especially those who intend to shop in One Utama but forgotten to pack snack for the little ones. But pricing wise, I do think it is kind of on the high side – since they essentially use a little fresh fruits to make the amount packed/filled. I think a lot of cost is put into packaging and its environment.

**If I have forgotten my snack and the kids need a quick fruit (puree/snack), I think I could get it cheaper at MBG – though it does not come with the Squeeze Me bag, my kids could handle straws perfectly! 

The shop is baby friendly as in it is equipped with a play area and there are baby chairs for the babies to finish up the Squeeze Me Baby!
