Can I have some more Yakult, please?

I always look forward to pick up Mika everytime after this playschool, it's because we have this bond where I promised him a bottle of Yakult before class and later when I picked him up from school, I will surprise him with a bottle of Yakult and he will be so happy and we would walk back together, enjoying our drink. Sometimes, he would even remind me to buy before entering his class and if I forgot, we will have to walk down to Jaya Grocer to get it.

PaPa and Mika during school pick up

Do you know that Yakult was created in 1935 by Dr Minoru Shirota in the hope to cure people from infectious diseases that causes death. He wasn't a business man and his values has been carried by the company until today with over 80 years of history and working towards building a healthy society here in Malaysia and around the world.

Some of you might ask, what are the benefits of Yakult?

1. It helps with bowel movements
2. Helps create a good balance between the good and bad bacteria
3. Helps to reduce toxins in your body
4. Makes your immune system stronger

You also might ask, is Yakult only for kids? The answer is NO. Even adults can drink it and it's really good for digestion. It's actually Marcus' favourite drink! I started buying Yakult because of him. Also, as a health drink, Yakult doesn't have added colouring which is a plus point! It may look small but it is a mighty drink! It contains more than 30 billion live Shirota strain.

Amazing right?
What's even more amazing is they are having a contest where the Grand Prize is a trip to Japan with your family ( 3 families in total) with Yakult Ambassadors, Schawalara and Nona crew from TV3 where they will film your experience which will be aired. First prize would be Ipad Mini 4 and second prize are shopping vouchers. Assortment of Yakult merchandise will be given for every purchase of 100 bottles.  

The Jom ke Jepun contest is starting from 28th August 2016 till 15th October 2016. All you have to do is to purchase minimum 20 bottles of Yakult, download the form from the website and mail the completed form together with Yakult packaging to the organizers.

Watch the YouTube video on how to participate here :

So hurry up! What are you waiting for! Time to get healthy and fly to JAPAN!

Mika wishes you Good Luck!

before you turn 2

Next month Mika will turn 2. 

Sometimes we can't believe it either. 

The days are real long but the years are short. 

Being a mother is such a tough job, the hardest job ever. 

But you've brought so much joy to our family and friends, watching you grow.

Dear Mika, 

How's it going? :) Mom is quite tired of still waking up middle of the night to breastfeed you and even the masseuse complained that my dark circles are very very bad. Yes, you are now 23 months and still on breastmilk because you love it so much and it calms you down. 

You've grown to be such a fine toddler, but maybe getting a little bit more cheeky. When we sing song like C-O-C-O-N-U-T, you will say O-C-O-C on purpose to make us laugh. When MaMa said "NO MORE MaMa Milk", you will laugh and say NO MORE MOO MOO COW Milk and then we will laugh together. You are seriously so cheeky and MaMa loves you because of that. 

Actually, you are growing quite fast and you understand us pretty well! You can speak and understand what we said in such that MaMa, PaPa and NaiNai have to communicate in Bahasa Melayu or we would have to SPELLED it out when we want to converse privately in front of you. No joke. 

You even know your numbers in English, BM and even Mandarin. You can identify colours, nursery rhymes and a lot more! It's really funny when you recite your nursery rhymes because you can't sing at all, and mostly you were either shouting or trying to sing everything in one breath! Which is very very very amusing. Here are some nursery rhymes which you can recite :

1. Twinkle twinkle Little Star
2. Humpty Dumpty
3. Row Row Row Your Boat
4. London Bridge
5. ABC

You kinda shocked us when you can sing ABC ( probably learn it from school or your favourite YouTube channel ) but whenever we ask are you to sing and put you on center stage, you froze and began to sing ABC D GGGGGG! and then you will laugh at us! but when you are playing alone with your toys, you could sing the whole song! How cheeky of you!

Koko and I even taught you french but only words like : Maman and je T'aime because those are the most important key words. ( so bias )  Hehehehe... Do you know that Koko helps MaMa to take care of you whenever NaiNai goes to Singapore for long holidays to visit Candice? She likes to shower you and wash your poo poo! and more importantly, she loves you unconditionally and loves you more than she loves MaMa. 

Do you know you love to eat? You are seriously food driven, just like you PaPa, while MaMa is more choosy. You love fruits, porridge, yakult, and whenever MaMa eats chocolate, I have to say it's SPICY because you don't like spicy food. ( Sorry MaMa lied ) 

You also like to simply point at people in the lift or anywhere and ask us " Who's that? " Quite embarrassing sometimes but it's all good as you and MaMa make more friends.

You are also obsesses with construction toys and masak masak toys! Which is why MaMa decided that the theme for your second birthday would be LOVE. COOK. PLAY! MaMa is now preparing for your second party and can't wait to celebrate with you! ( Actually more like can't wait to decorate the venue and scrolling Pinterest everyday for inspiration LOL ) 

During night time, you must listen to your christian songs and read at least 3 books before you go to bed. You love it when MaMa tickle your tiny toes and you will laugh and laugh and ask MaMa to do it again and again until you get tired. Then you will fall asleep while MaMa watches Modern Family beside you. I bet you know their voices in your head since we listen to them talk since you were a poppy seed growing inside MaMa's belly. 

MaMa can't wait till your birthday to celebrate with you!

Here's to the night!

 H  A  P  P  Y     B  I  R  T  H  D  A  Y     S  H  E  E  N  A

happy sweet 16!

This year, we planned a spring theme for the surprise birthday dinner  and it's called 500 minutes of Spring, inspired by the movie 500 days of Summer.

We wanted to play around with colours and we chose with PASTEL PINK and BLUE for the ballons, bright and bold colours for flowers for the theme with a hint of greens to set the mood.

It was really hard to surprise this woman, as she could figured out where were we going but I bet she didn't know that we bought her a Jo Malone perfume judging by her face here!

It was simple yet amazing birthday celebration. We gathered at Lina's about 8ish and not only we are there to makan, but we also did some flower crowns to wear followed by a mini photoshoot by MoosePixels of 

I think we should have a mini photoshoot every year like this, then we can talk about how pretty we were when we are 70 years old and prove to our grandkids that granny was hot back in 2016. LOL

My dear kesayangan, 

Words can't describe how lucky I am to have you in my life. You don't judge me and you love me unconditionally.  I am still a wee bit jealous of your love towards Mika but it's alright! LOL :P He is so blessed and lucky to have you in his life. I know you love him as your own. 

Nobody knows you like like we do. We know. That's why our friendship are the strongest and we would protect our group no matter what. 

Thank you for being such a good cousin/friend in our lives. 

We hope that you enjoyed your birthday night as much as we do! It was really fun whenever there's just the four of us.

The laughters, the tears and the lovely memories that we shall cherish forever.

There was never a dull moment with these girls. I practically known them my whole life.

Lina is my sister and Sheena is my cousins while Jillian is my childhood friend which I known since I was about 5 years old. I am the oldest by a year only while they are all the same age. I am the mother of the group and I always look forward to our outings and whatsapp messages. 

Nothing is better than just chilling with the girls at home in our PJs, munching some snack and talk about life and love. 

Oh, guess who's birthday is next? We've already 30% done planning your night :)

the scientist. the valedictorian. the mother. the narcissist

Here's the many more years of awesome friendship.
