Wow, 4.5 years since the last post!
So much has happened.
1, I’ve become a mother of 3, gosh it’s tiring but so fulfilling.
Natalie 3yo, Ryan 5yo & Elise 6yo, my Do-Re-Mi
I love this 3 kiddos to the moon and back!
2. Sold my previous home. Total nightmare, it’s a long story, but we moved out in the quickest time due to certain circumstances. So glad we managed to sell within a month! Price was not bad, but wow, after you deduct the agent’s fee, I was left with around $100. OUCH!!! I had to leave behind lots of furnishing & electronics because I have nowhere to store it while waiting for my BTO (Q3 2019), it’s going to be painful for my wallet again next year.
3. Planning for my new home! Haha, getting my keys next year! I have been hard at work meeting interior designers, I’ve met 8 already! So many things to consider for the renovation, open or semi-open kitchen, to enclose the study area or not, a feature TV wall or not etc etc. Plus with 3 kids, one doesn’t have a sky-high budget. Jialat
Checking out furniture stores for ideal pieces, and we fell in love with this marble dining table at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk. After thinking for 2 weeks, we headed back and placed a deposit haha!
And my favourite part: looking for electronics! Oh my, I am at a loss of what to purchase. Every brand has their own sales pitch.
I need an oven, refrigerator (french fridge? 2 doors?), dishwasher, filtered water system, television, washing machine, dryer, hob, hood (chimney??), storage heater etc etc.
More on this next time!
3. Discovered and deeply poisoned by the world of handwoven wraps and carriers. Now that Natalie is getting bigger and babywearing days are dwindling down, I’ve moved on to collecting handwoven neckwear. My favourite weaver is Stewed Rhubarb Handmade. Her choices of colours and weaving is amazing!
4. And lastly, I started up and am now running a home-based crafts business. This is on top of my full-time job haha, madness I know. It’s called Pinktini, no surprise there. I started off doing babywearing accessories for Baby Tula carriers, and progressed on to embroidery of Tokidoki / Ju Ju Be items, nowadays I try to add in new stuff like handmade dolls.

Hopefully I keep up blogging again, it’s nice to have somewhere to pen down the happenings in one’s life!
