I’m so angry at Isaac this morning. Sent him off to school. Whilst crossing the overhead bridge there was a puddle that looked like semen.

The volume is too much for white phlegm when people clear the throat.

I told him it’s ppls spit (obviously you’re not going to tell a 5.5 yo it’s semen right) and don’t step on it.

TWICE

And some little shit have to argue with me and said it’s water and proceeds to step on it!!!

I lost it la.

I shouted at him in such a shrill voice. Because it’s sooo gross I cannot take it.

And secondary to that was because he refuse to listen to me. Why so stubborn??

It’s truly disgusting.

I quickly walked away. Stupid shit chase after me. I told him y did u step on it. It’s so dirty. There’s germs and disease. Why don’t listen to me.

Why why why? Why I told you twice and yet you must insist stepping on it!!!!!! 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Told him I was angry at him and i am not going to acknowledge him because he refuse to listen and understand my instructions.

Told him to apologize to me but he refuse to look at my eyes.

If it’s just a simple puddle of water, sure! Step away to your hearts content!

It’s a freaking puddle of sperm. Some obstinate kid who refuses to listen to my reason and HAS TO STEP ON IT AND TELL ME ITS WATER.

Like those ignorant people. There’s a Malay saying for that.

BODOH SOMBONG

He reminds me of my MIL.

Bodoh sombong.

And those people who knows they’re wrong already yet refuse to apologize.

Bodoh sombong.

Why? Why?????

Have I not educate you enough???

Bad influence even though in a short exposure is very detrimental!!!

By 9.30am I’m longing for a warm drink or meal.

Still “fasting” so hot tea is it!

No calories in black tea right? ☕️☕️☕️☕️

12.00pm.

Leftover roasted chicken and plain salad for lunch.

Went down for a quick look about.

Wanted to get tea because my black Assam tea that I use to brew kombucha is finished.

I really love Assam tea because of its strong flavor. Reminds me of Teh Tarik back home.

The sales lady at T2 was so nice to let me try out other flavors. She brewed Sydney morning breakfast and Irish breakfast for me.

Sydney had a bitter after taste which I don’t appreciate. Later my 5liter of kombucha taste bitter how?

Irish reminded me of assams more delicate Cousin

Dinner 7.20pm

Stir fry long beans
Salmon air fried withh olives and cherry tomatoes
Pan fry Hokkaido scallops.

Bought CNY clothes from Qo100 on 19th January and today only it was delivered.

This samfu is size 2 but is abit big for didi

And Isaacs one is size 6 and it’s abit too short for him.

Aiya. Took forever to come but I don’t think will return it la.

Ahhaha my drunken kungfu masters at home.

Aiyooo I still can’t sleep.

Wahhhh Wah wahhh Huat ah!!

3.30pm. Snack time.

Apple and cold brew.

Wrangled a cold brew from my Sri Lankan colleague who got promoted this year.

Win. But I think I won’t be able to sleep.

I brought 450mls of kombucha 2F with persimmons and have been drinking it after lunch to stave off the post lunch slump.

Only gripe is transporting the glass bottles to and fro work.

Wah guys, today, I have 3 parcel to be posted out from my carousell sale.

I’m a #fakebusinesswoman

Hahaha.

6.30pm Dinner.

Air fried chicken 2 pc

New flavor just for CNY!

Salted egg Tapioca chips!!

Hmmmmm maybe not enough for the whole extended family.

During dinner, Isaiah stole a fried drumstick to eat.

So enjoy ah.

We don’t stop him. Eating more protein is good.

Hehe only a bit messy.

But look at his cheeky face.

Woot. Crashed last night at 8.45pm. Didn’t have coffee the day before too.

My brain doesn’t feel it, this no coffee thing, but my body does. Once settle didi down for his night nursing, I also want to 😴😴😴😴😴😴

So sad. 😭😭😭😭

Finally reached Novena

12.50pm lunch.

Pulled pork salad bowl.

Hrmmmm I think this bowl not worth it at $12.50.

I ask for no beans cos it gives me gas.

I should have bought salad from cold storage ($4.99) and add a meat ($4.00+) would still be cheaper and more satisfying then this.

Darn.

Tarpau old Chang kee fried chicken and came home to snack. Cos 👆🏼👆🏼👆🏼 not enough.

Isaac wanted some and I had no heart to say no. Also I wasn’t sure it had egg or not.

I first ask him to lick it first. If no reaction, then take a small bite. He did. And wanted more.

Aiyoo in the end he ate 1/3 of it. I hope no reaction.

Didi also FOMO. Keep on saying “I want I want” he took 3 big bites!!!

Oh oh this is the start of eating us dry. 💸💸💸💸

Didi passed out coming back from ica.

We collected both the boys passport and the husbands.

Now can buy plane ticket back to KL for CNY.

Woot!

Since I’ve listed my maternity and nursing clothes up on carousell, I’ve sold about 5 items.

And 4 pending transfer of funds before I sent them out!

Woot!!

I priced it to really let it go.

A lot of sexy dresses up for grabs!

Halter, backless, off shoulder.

Watching Charlie Brown and turn around to say hi to me.

❤️❤️

This morning did some HIIT with weights. Thankfully no explosive movements.

I was putting on lipstick 💄 before going out and smeared some on my teeth.

Then Isaiah told me “there’s meat (something) stuck!”

Hahha so observant.

Then suddenly he ran off.

I thought, great! He left me alone to finish my make up.

Then he came back in and climb onto my bed. I didn’t see him because I was finishing up my make up.

He also put “lipstick”

Went out to grab the nearest color pencil which was green!!

And started copying me with the pencil to lip action.

So happy about it sumore!!!

Early morning at hospital for a health check up.

And after this I can get to eat red meat again. Hoho.

Hoping my waist has reduced and that my lipid levels has improved too.

Cross fingers 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Don’t wanna be a fatty bombom with health problems. Haha.

I’ve a very high risk due to family history of cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes.

9.40am. Breakfast.

Today fasting failed. After the blood test and health screening, I’m not sure why I feel extremely hungry.

Maybe it’s not drinking the kombucha.

Anyway, salad, black coffeee and apple juice. Provided by the hospital.

Heading to a work lunch meeting.

So hungryyy.

Didn’t finish the salad or the cofffee. The coffee taste so … ashtray water. Blek 🤢

Lunch meeting meal.

Ahh they preordered meal for us and only had pasta with salmon.

Oh I’m so worried now but ate less than half the pasta and 3:4 of the salmon. I just cannot.

Tummy, please be kind to me.

Woot today Jim and I did high rep weights. Abit like HIIT without the explosive movements.

I sweat. A lot.

Appetizers for dinner!

Mains is here!!

Grilled fish and sashimi.

Ehermmm.

Japanese matcha parfait.

7.15am. Breakfast.

Drinking my kombucha

I had such a good sleep last night.

Passed out while putting Isaiah to sleep. That means I’ve been asleep from 9pm until 7am.

Wohooo! 10 hours of sleep. Feels good.

I think not drinking coffee the whole of yesterday helped. And eating really clean this past few days. Gym was also intensive la.

Dead. With IF I didn’t manage to hit my target calories.

Forgot to bring banana to break my fast.

I just did not have the energy to push through.

1.10pm. Lunch!

Leftover 3 pc chicken baked with onions, chili flakes and coconut aminos.

👩🏻ok thanks.

Again!

Isaacs spelling for this week. 5/5? Really? Is this a fluke?

Last week also 5/5.

🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Morning school round.

Took this picture because:
1) wanted to show you (and @strawbee) the #mollycosmetics hot stuff that you were giving away for free is NICE ok!!! Yes it is bright with some coral almost fluorescent pink. Wear the colour and just OWN it.

2) we were waiting for Isaacs schoolmate to walk to school together!!

Classmates until K1, Neighbors and hopefully next year primary schoolmate.

#crossfingers!!

Early morning already sent a scratching email to Isaac kindy.

What do you think?

Too strongly worded and pushy?

Brought my 1 liter of blueberry, peppermint and honey flavored kombucha to work today.

Swig the bottle around and announced “I brought Toddy today!!” Only the Sri Lankan and the Malaysian understood my joke.

Drinking this in the morning before I left for work and now has made me not want to drink coffee.

Don’t need that caffeine boost feeling which I use to get around 10am.

12.00pm: Lunch!

First meal of the day. Was looking forward to this the whole morning!!

Cod fish, avocado, egg and simple salad. No dressing.

Mmmm 😋😋😋😋

2.30pm. Snack time.

Cannot stand already. Feel like eating something sweet.

Finish up the last of my kombucha.

I poured some of it during lunch for my GM. We had lunch at the pantry together and chit chat. Told her it’s moonshine and let’s get drunk together!!

And she commented “no wonder you’re so happy all the time” Hahahah. Yes I get that’s a joke.

3.55pm: another snack!

White nectarine/peach? From the office fruit week.

Didn’t finish my kombucha cos a colleague came and drank a glass.

Omg suddenly heavy Downpour

My shoes are soaked. When I walk it makes squishy sound.

Aiyoooo got to head back to see Jim.

Jim was very nice today.

Did hypertrophy weights. 8-10 reps x 3-4 sets each time.

Oh I’m so hungry now. Can’t wait to eat dinner.

7.15pm: Dinner!

3 pc roasted chicken thighs with onion and chili flakes and coconut aminos.

Stir fry French beans and Asian leafy veg. I have no idea what’s it called.

There’s an overripe mango in the fridge. No ones eating it.

So I shall. Nyomnyomnyom

Passport & Citizenship Cert Collection

I’m going to try out intermittent fasting today.

Key word is “try”.

I brought my kombucha to drink and if really cannot tahan, going to snack on blueberries which I brought too.

Now off to collect something important!!!

Done.

Now can buy CNY plane ticket home.

Soo cute their citizenship cert.

Isaac looks abit convict-ish.

Oh man it’s only 9.15am and I feel a little hungry already.

How to fast ah whole day.

I feel like going down to Starbucks and getting the most sinful drink I can get my hands on.

The new coffee jelly earl grey drink looks decadent.

12.00pm: Lunch and break of fast.

YTF with 2 eggs, 2 brinjal, 2 okra, 1 serving of black fungus, 1 slice of yam the rest all veg.

Hahaha diet? What diet?

2.00pm: Chocolate black tea Earl Grey Jelly Frappuccino.

Why do I always torture myself with dairy/cream/milk.

No discipline la me.

Wow this journal of food intake really helps me visually what I’ve eaten.

And, I am what I ate.

So, I am a Frappuccino.

6.15pm: Dinner.

Pan fried barramundi
Stir fry snow peas.

Hahaha I love this!!!

Totally pragmatic.

But I do believe in love, constant communication and understanding.

Good morning everyone!!!

Don’t want dayre to die so I bought some stickers!!! Lots of stickers.

Eh isit call stickers?

Oh ya, yes it is.

Today also begins my 4 days of no red meat.

I’ve an impending health screening on Friday and need to lay off the red meat for stool occult.

Would like to see if some of my readings have gone down especially my TG and LDL levels.

There’s a breakfast meeting at work today, so I’m on my way.

I got to say, dropping off Isaac to school everyday has made me wake up earlier and try to be disciplined.

I am not a morning person and this is really a big change for me. I’m always squeezing in that extra 10 mins (or 1 hr lol) of sleep and hit the snooze button multiple times.

But, I hope this morning routine can last until the whole year.

Also me this morning.

Down my kombucha before leaving the house.

I think drinking kombucha before sleeping makes me to energized. Couldn’t fall asleep last night. So I’m gonna try it out for morning.

Hopefully no need so much coffee

Breakfast today!

Black tea
2 spring roll (ok la got carb)
3 teriyaki wings
3 Siew mai.

Didn’t take meehoon or pizza.

The best I could pick from the buffet spread.

Lunch.

Yong tau foo.

2 eggs, 1 cuttlefish, 2 brinjal the rest all vegetables.

No noodles, konlo.

2pm snack time!

1 large nectarine and my own bottled kombucha of apple blueberry.

Going to hit the gym soon.

I’ve sacked my previous PT because he did so many high impact moves which gave me my neck and shoulder injury.

Now I’ve a new PT and been with him for about 10 odd sessions and all we do is lift heavy weights. And I love it

Gives me an illusion that I’m strong and I hate cardio and high impact jumping burst moves because I’m so clumsy I will confirm fall.

So far didn’t lose weight but looks a bit toner.

Only way to lose weight fast also HIIT kind of cardio

Which I’m tying to add into lunch time at least once a week.

I lift weights 3-4 times a week so gonna start slow.

Dinner.

Leftover air fried d chicken and roasted thighs.

Stir fry brinjal and okra.

Omg im so full. Shouldn’t have add that extra air fried chicken.

Clothes Decluttering Round 3\4

Breakfast of yakiniku salad and poached egg.

Hi is me.

Marie kondoing my wardrobe again.

Round 3 or 4?

Since I’ve stopped pumping at work I’m gonna get rid of all my maternity and nursing clothes and put them up for sale or to throw.

Manage to sell 1 since putting it up few days ago.

Progress so far.

These are the bunch haven’t sort them out yet.

I went by categories
1) bra and panties
2) swimwear, socks
3) sports bra and sports clothes

Now tackling lounge clothes.

Wtf do I need so much “home clothes” for.

You know those clothes. Not nice to wear outside but to keep one day to wear inside house.

Previous rounds I’ve gotten rid of all T-shirt’s that were given by company n signing up for events.

Now touching everything to make sure i really don’t like them.

These 2 big box are easy.

Maternity and nursing clothes.

And clothes that I don’t like the colour and those when I wear them, they don’t flatter me and I don’t look good in them.

These are all my white tops.

I’m asking myself now, do I need to many white tops?

Obviously not!!!!

Looking at this pile I already know which one I confirm I cannot throw one. So ok, that makes it easier.

The rest, I don’t even know why I bought them.

80% of my clothes is here!

Dinner.

Wee nam kee steam chicken about 1:4 chicken, some char Siew and soup.

Even after round 3-4 of closet decluttering, I still have 3 big boxes of clothes I don’t want.

Seriously man. I have too much clothes.

I’m certainly not at the minimalism level yet.

But Marie Kondoing my lifestyle is such a marathon. I can’t finish Kondoing my stuff yet because I’m at different stages of life.

At least I know the chapter of being pregnant and nursing is over, I can clear those clothes away with good conscience.

No point holding on to that maternity gown even though it’s beautiful. The gown has done its job of making my bump beautiful at an event.

I still have dinner dresses and gowns in the other wardrobe.

Winter clothes and winter scarfs and accessories.

And 5 t-shirts that Batdude proposed with. (Definitely can’t and won’t get rid of that!)

One day I will get to them.

Then my clothes decluttering will be complete!!

Hopefully by end of this year I can tackle them.

I also love decluttering because I move all the time.

It really helps after reading the Marie Kondo book that I truly only keep what I really like.

So next time when I move, I don’t have to lug 100% if useless stuff and pay movers for it! No money wasted and move only stuff that I love, need and really use.

I’m preparing myself so that when we have our permanent Singapore home, it is only filled with things that are useful and things that we really like.

Speaking of it, Isaac this afternoon has been “decluttering” his and his little brothers toys.

He has been wanting to open didis new Lego duplo box and I told him that he can only open it if he gives away some of his old toys.

1 big plastic bag. Told him to get a plastic bag from the kitchen and start selecting toys he doesn’t want.

He came out with the Taka plastic bag! It was huge. I expected only those fair price medium bags.

He got to discarding his toys and filled it up in no time.

And he said “mummy I still want to give away more toys”.

Ok! Go get another plastic bag. And he came out with another huge plastic bag.

That 2nd plastic bag is 3/4 filled.

I’m quite surprised he’s giving away quite a lot.

Of course I’m not going to throw la. All still so good.

I’m going to carousell it or to give away to the orang asal kids back in Malaysia. Haha.

Ah I totally forgot about my bags and shoes.

Accessories I don’t have much and I have given away those that I don’t want anymore.

Bags and shoes need to be Kondo-ed too.

Ok all target by end of this year!!!

Forgot to take pic of breakfast.

Bacon, egg and carrot hash

Dinner!

Pan fried fish (barramundi?), air fried chicken thighs and stir fry long beans.

Just now, went home ah jia house.

He said it again.

@maryannsee Wah now Isaiah can speak 6 words sentences.

Oh no!! Isaac vomited about 5 times after dinner.

Complaint of tummy ache after dinner with rock melons.

Puke quite massively.

Daddy had to attend to him.

Now he’s sleeping in a sitting up position with a small Paul next to him. When he lies down he feels nauseated.

Poor thing. Hope it’s just food poisoning.

No fever and no rashes.

Pizza frittata for breakfast.

Half a roasted chicken and veg for dinner.

I’m really really amazed that a 21.5 month old can cycle and navigate within his short capacity.

This one is a handful!

Also guys, need to show how a barely 90cm baby gets on a bicycle.

😱😱😱😱

ECDA Food Allergies Sharing in Pre-nursery

Mushroom frittatas
1 sausage
1 egg.

Gym time before lunch.

I’ve been told by PT and lots of ppl around me that the only way to lose weight fast is cardio.

So this is me attempting to fit in cardio in my lyfe.

Okay. 383 calories.

Wow really takes up time. I’ll see if I can only cardio 35mins max and hit 350 and above next round.

Lunch of 1 and 3/4 grilled pork chop.

Ran out of greens I suppose.

Wah feel extremely tired after the workout and lunch got no carbs so body couldn’t recover?

Went down and get a cup of fruits.

So, I was invited to share our thoughts on food allergies in preschools.

There were parents, school representatives and allergist from every hospital as also dietician.

People from MOH was also there to observe as ECDA will have a discussion with them in the coming weeks on food allergy management in prenursery.

I love that this is a stepping stone to a validated voice of food allergies.

I really hate it with FB group sharing nonsense and quasi medicines.

Evidence based is the way.

I’ve been looking sometime now for a proper food allergy support group in Singapore and there is none that is very visible.

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting up a registered society. Luckily I’ve asked the dietician if she knew of any and she pointed me to this group.

The ECDA Sharing was also coincidental.

Good for my personality type I suppose where I would really want to do something about advocating our kids allergies.

The author of this book was in my focus group and she provided valuable insights on primary school too.

There were some aspects that I didn’t think about yet because our kids not in primary school and there’s no way for us to know.

Proud mama moment!!

Isaac just had his first spelling test. Happy to see it was done well.

Dinner was so unhealthy.

Ate at five tapas.

Had wings, garlic cockles, meatballs, fried gizzards, fried pork belly, fried sio bak, and grilled squid

Bacon, ham and sunny side up for breakfast.

Could not stomach the ham because it tasted so sour. It’s the fair price brand.

Told Helper not to get it anymore. Stick to bacon from qbfood only.

Mexican for lunch!

Protein salad combo with sides of tortilla chips!

We are now here for our parenting workshop.

Signpost for building better behavior.

Also, wangs kopi o kosong to concentrate.

Didi is so determined to cycle.

Attempts at cycling – age 21.5 months.

Mushroom frittata for breakfast

Salad for lunch!

Salad leaves, mashed tuna(no mayo), 1 hard boiled egg, some truffle cheese. No dressing.

Dinner!

Grass fed rib eye.
Green beans stir fry
Simple salad no dressing.

Over the weekend we celebrate my sil birthday.

She drove down to Singapore with her bf and mil.

I forgot how good da Luca is. Ok la I remember, but pasta give me very bad gas.

This!!

I can eat this everyday!!!

We ordered 2 to share amongst 5 adults. Cos it’s💰. But so worth it.

Cold capellini with truffle, uni and Hokkaido scallops. So so good. $88

Miles apart from Gunther’s.

This was light and refreshing and morish. Mmmm salivating just thinking about it.

My mains of cod specially done for me cos I kenut gluten.

Husband was really sweet. He preordered the dessert as a birthday cake for sil.

Chocolate lava cake with molten pistachio sauce. And hazelnut ice cream at the side.

One of the better lava cakes I’ve eaten.

Sooooo sooooo good.

Then I had stomach ache after cos I also cannot lactose.

But worth the stomach ache.

Happy 34th SN!!!

Ya they all look very young one.

👦🏻 ah kor, can take pic of Mickey Mouse and me with mummy??

Sil 📷: ok! (Faster take)

So rare this emo guy willingly ask for a photo.

Sil 📷: didi, faster kiss mummy!

👶🏻: *side eyes sil and pretends to kiss me*

Sil: kiss properly!

👶🏻: *still refuses to kiss.

Isaac is oblivious

Sil also brought down their bikes we recently got them.

Finally! They can ride because the rain has stopped.

Before.

After.

Typical when you have kids.

First born quickly grabs didi scooter and had a go.

😆😆😆😆

Weeeee!!! 💨

The little devil.

Omelette with breakfast sausage.

Aiyooo it’s so cold and ☔️ wet morning.

Finished.

Dinner.

Next loot for the kids are here.

Wanted to get something long sleeve for Isaac cause he’s been saying that Chinese class is cold.

Ended up with so many other stuff. Hahha. Opps

This Batman wellies and charcoal boats for didi is dam cute.

Officially SG-an

Breakfast of 1 sunny side and 3 breakfast maple sausages.

Woahhh did you know K2 kids have to do spelling for English and Chinese?

They’ve really ramped it up this year.

2 weeks into the school year, we’ve got to le them know 5 words to spell provided by the school. There’s a date, but I’m not sure is it the “assessment” date for the spelling on that particular week. I think it is.

Scrolled through my photo album and this Isaac took pictures of his note “to his friend” and ask me to send it to his moms friend.

And some Chinese words too.

I only recognize “siao”

My son officially knows more Chinese than me.

After all the crying this morning, we are ready for the school run. Another wet morning, luckily not downpour like Monday.

Where I got my work clothes wet all the way to my panties. Soaking!

Another note he wrote last Saturday to his best friend to ask for a play date at his house.

Ok la pass. Can communicate with writing ✍️👍🏼

Wow guys.

I just pledged allegiance to the Republic of Singapore.

This is a big change, yet everything is the same.

Commissioner of Oaths then welcome us.

New year, new citizenship.

My new temporary pink ic guys. Haha 😂

Dinner.

Leftover lamb chop, baked mustard chicken, simple salad and stir fry asparagus.

We all know who the boss is.

Good morning everybody!

Last night the little boss played hide and seek.

Although he looked like kena punished.

Rare moments in the park

So happy to be able to run around without caution

Scooting around and then pausing for people to cross.

Last Saturday, we went to @doooduuu open house.

*expectations*
But only manage to take pics of the kids.

Forgot to take pic of ourselves, I forgot to take pic of food and most importantly the house.

I really like how the hall looks out to the park with swings and slides. And a school is right next to the block!!! It’s so convenient and pretty quiet.

Reality of the pictures haha.

During the night we also went to another friends house for open house.

Didi really made himself right at home.

Last Sunday I took this cutie patootie and his brother out for coffee in the morning.

Sahhh cute.

Brother also cute la when his not screaming his head off.

Then wanted a go on the paw patrol ride.

No coins was inserted.

So happy going off to fetch korkor back from class.

♥️😍

Today’s dinner.

Air fried chicken and steam broccoli

Oh no, the kids discovered all the kept soft toys. No soft toys because of their dust mite allergies.

But didi has taken to hugging them. So ok la.

Pancake for Egg-challenge| Epic Meltdown

Today I made pancakes for Isaacs egg baked challenge.

I notice he hated the muffin recipe by the allergist because it’s too dry. I told the dietician about it and she suggested pancakes.

They looked beautiful.

Each individual pancake was measured out precisely due to how much egg proteins we needed to calculate in each pancake.

Today’s goal was to eat 1 bite.

Oh boy.

The pancakes cooked beautifully.

I had to then put it in the oven at 180•C at 30mins to make sure the egg protein is denatured.

Cooking it on stove just doesn’t change the protein structure of the egg.

The minute he knew I was finished cooking it, he had an epic meltdown of a blizzard proportion.

He couldn’t and would not calm down after us reasoning with him.

He cried sooooo hard and long.

In the end I had to force him into his room to calm him down. Still couldn’t.

I spied his beloved ninja go Lego Jay and lightning jet.

I told him, if he doesn’t stop crying in 3 seconds I am going to throw it away.

I said it because he keep screaming to throw my pancakes away.

So, instead of him throwing my pancakes, I said I will throw away his precious toy.

Lifted it up and I went out the front door.

The screaming ensured (this one quite bad). Batdude talked to him nicely again and tried to tell him to calm down. Obviously not going to work.

Screamed until he couldn’t scream anymore. I opened the front door then and told him “I will give you back jay, if you take one bite of the pancake”

Lo and behold guys. He took a bite. About adult thumb size.

Considered a success la.

After 3-4 hours still no reaction.

We are suppose to continue tomorrow with 1/8 of a pancake but had to abort mission.

His nose was all clogged up, and he developed very bad runny nose.

He was sniffling the whole morning but this bout of intense crying brought on the runny nose kau kau.

So difficult to get an anxious boy to try something new.

Now that we’ve had time to relax after putting kids to bed, feed them and clean them, me and bad dude thinks he couldn’t deal with trying out the egg challenge hence the melt down.

Can you imagine, he was so scared and anxious that he meltdown.

Aiyoooo poor boy. He really needs help.

Anyhow, I’m really happy about how the pancake looks.

It’s really yummy too because the recipe calls for quite a high sugar ratio.

But I guess to get the kids to eat, have to be yummy right?

And next time I shall use other oil instead of coconut oil. Too strong smell for Isaac.

So cute this Isaac.

Facebook reminder of his first week at kindergarten!

♥️♥️♥️

His cheeks was also quite fluffy. I forgot it was that soft.

I’m going to commit to taking photos of my meals.

Need to go back to #portion control and my #paleo meals.

As a diary for me to remember what I eat too.

Everyone who passed by me in pantry is shocked at the amount I eat.

Ok, stir fry kale (more the better right) with vinegar pork trotter. To be fair it’s all bones and skin. Threw away all the skin & fat cause I was full and just felt geli after a while.

It’s not THAT much. Haha.

90% commented the smell is so good, followed by “Wah so big”. One even made an instastory about how much I eat.

Clearly my portion control is skewed!!!! Hahha.

Haha that’s me everybody!!!

My strengths. It’s nice that my company wants to invest in our strength develop us further.

But if you look closely there is a hokkien interpretation to the strengths.

Hahha. Is this really me guys?

School Drop off. Epipen training.

School drop off today!

As usual Isaac shut down and refuse to follow the teachers to get in line to be placed in the correct class. At least 3-4 teachers have to coax him.

There was an assistant which I think is in his class the blue top one reminded me of you @Sunorchid 😍😍😍 she knelt and held his face to ask him to follow her.

After much coaxing only he left begrudgingly to his class. I didn’t follow them in case he freaks and breaks loose.

Spoke with the new principal today too.

Told her about Isaacs allergy and sought her permission to teach his class teacher.

Also told her about Isaacs assessment and where we need the help of his last years teachers assessment of his anxiety.

Passed her the assessment form so his previous teachers can rate him. I told her not to sugar coat the report because there is some issue and I want it to be a true reflection of him. Also mentioned that they can ask other teachers who have worked with him before to input as well.

Training done to his teachers on how to use epipen ✅

Passed her a pouch of zrytec. Explained when to use it. Explained when to use epipen.
Let her practiced it. Which injection site and all.

This year teacher much more receptive to it.

Told her to not separate out Isaac during meals time cause it causes more harm than good. He is able to not touch other kids food as he knows he is allergic.

Gave her a copy of graphic chart what to do Incase of emergency too.

#foodallergy #epipen

Now, breakfast after all that hustling.

Actually no la. The teachers hustle more than me.

Just had a flashback of Isaac being separated at school during meal times.

I was reading an article on autism and being “different”.

And it just hit me that food allergy is a “Disability”.
I googled definition of “is food allergy a disability” and according to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) it’s a yes. Because disability is defined as a physical or mental inpairment that substantially limits one of more major life activities of an individual.

O

G

I have a lot to digest. I feel jittery.

Then according to UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with

Disabilities, he should have been reasonably be accommodated.

Did I do the wrong thing by not confronting the teacher about them ostracizing him during meal times?

Is this what contributed to his anxiety??

Is his anxiety my fault because we fail to identify that it was a “disability”

😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Siow liow Siow liow.

This Monday (Tuesday) blues is too real.

Anyway, during lunch time I spied on them from the cctv.

#stalkermomseries

Isaac is home having lunch and omg. Look at that little monkey.

What is he doing? Got knows! Climbing chairs and what not.

And when I got home, he was on the couching playing with captain America. On the top. Just one false move and his head could hit the railings and concrete ledge behind.

Does he care? Of course not!

First day back at school makes you want to rummage through old toys and play with them right?

Because, in his words, school was boring.

Ok boss. Boring. Use your imagination at home then.

Side effects from kitchen decluttering.

So many Syrup medication that we don’t need.

Luckily husbands clinic assistant is taking them.

Phew. If not, down the rubbish chute it goes.

I Ask Batdude to get me this. It’s a mop / broom holder.

Best thing ever!!

Behold!!! My work of art.

Brooms and dustpan has a place and they will always go back.

And most importantly, Isaiah will not steal them and pretend sweep the house anymore!

And it looks neat. Cos I OCD.

And no, I did not line the brooms up for this picture. When I went to take a picture, it was already like this. Helper did it. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼💯💯💯📈📈📈

Have written a note in the parent teacher communication book.

I hope it doesn’t sound too antagonistic.

Excuse the bad handwriting (because everything is typed nowadays).

First meal of the year!!!

Excited because today I will be decluttering the Kitchen!

Ahah. #auntiemode

We’re only 40-50% done.

So far I’ve thrown out 4 ultra large garbage bags.

1 large garbage bag pending. This is only filled with plastic bags from all the grocery shopping. Shit.

Not looking forward to work after 2 weeks of leave!
