Working mom working out

I always look forward to the weekend mornings because I get to workout with the cutest little distractions ever. Having kids has never made it such that I have no time to get my training done. In fact, they make it way more entertaining sometimes ❤️

.

It is true that with children and having to work I don’t have very much ME time left. But when I do make the time to work out no matter how short the session may be, it always helps me feel more energized and infused with those happy hormones. 


So to fellow moms, I know it always sounds daunting at first. But with a little time management and creativity, it’s always possible to spend a few minutes a few times each day to fit in some exercise and it’s more than just doing something for ourselves. We’re setting an example for the little ones too.

Celebrating Chinese New Year 2018

Each time we celebrate the Chinese New Year, I’m always reminded of how important it is to regularly meet up with our family and relatives. That kampong spirit and sense of belonging never fails to fill my heart with a warm fuzzy feeling each time we go visiting and take turns gathering at one another’s homes.


We put in effort to prepare meals and snacks for our visiting relatives and make sure everyone is comfortable and take pride in sprucing up our homes to welcome our guests. I actually think it’s such a great thing to do at least once a year to declutter and maybe change things around in our living space.



CNY is also that time of the year when we get to wear our traditional cheongsam and follow certain traditional activities. It’s always such a joy being able to share about our culture and tradition not just with our little ones, but our friends from other cultures as well. 
And one of my favorite things about celebrating CNY apart from the fact that we get to spend more time with family and friends whom we don’t see very often is the FOOD! I lost count how many tubs of pineapple tarts I’ve eaten and platters of Yu Sheng that we’ve consumed. And despite knowing the nutritional content in these less than healthy morsels…. I can’t help but savor and appreciate these tasty morsels that I only get to enjoy once a year. 
So all the more I have to make sure that the kids and I stay healthy and fit at this time of the year when we actually eat more, sit more and sleep less.

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Stay healthy and well and may the lunar new year ahead be one filled with peace, joy and great experiences for all.

Recovering with Impact tights from C3fit

After working for over 2 weeks in a row without a day off, I’m really looking forward to just recovering over this long weekend. .

And these Impact Tights from C3fit are just perfect for helping me recover quickly and improving the quality of rest. Of course having a little cherub planting kisses on me throughout the day helps immensely too ☺️❤️.

.

Even though these compression tights provide the firmest level of support in the series of C3fit tights, the 3D design and 4-way stretch dry mesh material still allows for optimal leg movement and breath ability. .

Check out the range of C3fit recovery gear available at @triplefit.sg and soon to be available at @trium.fitness

Dressing up four daughters

Ever since Large was born, I had always shopped at @mothercaresg for my babies daily needs and apparel. And even up till now I still enjoy shopping here for their clothes because I know the quality is good and the kiddos will be comfortable while wearing them.


Now dressing up one daughter and stocking up her closet isn’t exactly a walk in the park. So with four daughters, I do have to make of an effort to ensure that they have comfortable and well-fitted clothes that they can enjoy their activities in and not worry about chafing , seams coming off or some form Olof wardrobe malfunction.

.

Thank you Mothercare for the beautiful outfits for my four girls that they truly enjoy running and lounging around in.

.

And it looks like I’m half prepared for the CNY visiting! I just need to get two more red dresses now! 😉.

Healthy cooking made easier

A good method to provide good nutrition to my family would be through healthy food!

Being a working mom of four, it does become chaotic should any of my kids not feel well. Which is why I always try my best to nourish them and supplement their diets to ensure that their immune systems are rock solid.

This means plenty of home-cooked meals that they girls and I enjoy eating such as our favorite pumpkin soup. I’ve even included the simple recipe below. And having nifty gadgets like the Braun Multi Quick9 saves me plenty of time when it comes to preparing meals so I get more play time with the children.

As a very hands on mom in the kitchen, I’ve used many other hand blenders over the years but what’s so unique about the Multi Quick9 is the ACTIVEBlade technology that allows it to move up and down and easily blend the hardest foods with 40% less effort. And the flexible shaft results in 250% more active cutting surface to work with. 
Anything that saves me time and yet delivers great performance is a keeper. Loving meal preps even more now because of this fancy kitchen gadget. 

Pumpkin soup recipe:
1. Heat stock, salt, pumpkin, onion, thyme, garlic and peppercorns. Being to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes uncovered.
2. Purée the soup using a hand blender.
3. Return to pot and bring to a boil again.
