I need some push factor...

Havent posted much since i dun remember when....has it been that long?? 3 months??? i can feel time slipping by.....there have been a lot of happenings but i cannot figure out why i just cant bring myself to write about it nor post up any pictures....i need to wake up..perk up...oh..i need strength and not procrastination! Kill me...

Okay..some random thoughts.....i am going to dine at Teppei tonight...yippee...so looking forward to that. Tomorrow, i will be going for the Korean O.S.T concert with sis (Elmo)....looking forward to indulge in K.Will's voice.

Books - I have recently read books by Jennifer Cruise (romance)....really good....BET ME, WILD RIDE...awesome...and another beyond brilliant book by Sun-mi Hwang - The Hen Who Dreamed She Could Fly...if there is just one book that you must read before you die...this is the one.....not kidding....i mean it is an awesome read...once i started...it was such a page turner that i finished it within the day. (well...it aint a think book to begin with) a great insight, evoking much thoughts about life, sacrifice, love.....well...this book should appeal to mums, adults, children...basically anyone who can read english. Its that good....please go read it and revel in the story...and cry a little....or maybe a small bucket...like i did :)

Music - Thanks to 'I am a Singer 3'...i have been enjoying A-Lin & 李荣浩 (whom i got to know after he attended the show) on repeat mode. Rainie Yang's album is not too bad too....i was surprised! Then there's Miss A's "stuck" and oh JJ Lin's 水仙......

Daily Kyara - Saturday, 3rd Jan 2015

Hubby brought them to the park for a short walk and play on their scooters then i went to meet them at McDonald's for breakfast. Kyara is being rather cooperative in giving me cute faces :)


Kate went to attend her art class whereas we stayed at home first.....and here's a pic of Kyara disturbing Kyle as he took his short nap...dozed off whilst waiting to go out. 

In the evening, we went to IKEA, Tampines to do some shopping. I used to love eating at IKEA but not so anymore because the queue for food is horribly long, not to mention the long long wait for tables.....and even after we have gotten our food, we couldnt enjoy it as there would be people standing behind us, waiting for our table and thats even before our food had arrived...so we tried to gobble up real fast (i feel bad and uncomfortable that people are waiting) and only refilled our coffee once....pretty sad that its such a hurried affair and we cant slowly taste our dinner.

DIY - Ice Cream

Bought this from Toys-R-Us as a christmas gift for the girls. $30. 
Before i made the purchase, I tried to find reviews on this product but there were few available; I did find a youtube video and also some very discouraging comments from various websites that basically concluded that this toy is purely a waste of money.

Despite the reviews, i decided to buy and try it out. And we were quite successful...though the taste still needs improvement. This was my first try with Kate:


On 2nd Jan 2015, i decided to try ice-cream making with Kate again because she said she enjoys playing with it. And this time, i remembered to snap some pics.


The mixed product is as seen on the left.
Ingredients: 100ml milk, 100ml thickened cream, 1 packet of sugar & pinch of salt
For the cylinder, fill with ice, 150g salt & 100ml hot water
Pour a small portion of the ice-cream mixture slowly onto the cylinder. Turn in anti-clockwise direction. Gradually add more of tlie mixture. In total, around 4-5mins of spinning will do. 
Ice-cream is ready.
                                


As we had used less than 1 packet of sugar for this round, we had to add Hershey's chocolate sauce to make the ic-cream sweeter. Subsequently, repeat the process so as to finish up the remaining mixture.
                             

Had to eat straightaway because the ice-cream melts fast.

 

Daily Kyara - Sports shoes

Here she is trying out a pair of Nike....handed to colleague, who handed it to me for Kyara to wear first since her own daughter is 6 months younger and cant wear it just yet

Kyara seems to have too many shoes right now...and they are all of similar sizes....hiaz.....a matter of time before we need to pass it to other kids....
