We're in Phuket

We are having a holiday in Phuket... until the 14th. It's day 3 today and it's been raining since last night.... Kwa Kwa Kwa... previous days were spectacular (weather wise).  Tomorrow we head off from Rawai and will go to Kata where there's a bit more buzz. Am looking forward to it because my Favourite street food seller is there hahahah... he looks like Chow from the Hang Over. 😂 And he sells BBQed skewers of prawns, chicken, beef, chicken hearts !!!!! Yummmm
If there are several million typos in this post, I apologise. I'm writing this on my phone while Myla Rae is asleep on my chest. Such a wet day, we can't go to Naiharn beach or the pool even. I miss updating you on the going one in my life 😭. I hardly have the time now to sit at my laptop to type my thoughts away.

Ok update u soon with more pics of the trip once it dries up and we can go out and about's high season so the weather supposed to be good this time of the year  (!!) tmd

Meanwhile, here are some of my Favourite latest articles I wrote on MyFatPocket. Happy reading :)

A Shit Start to the New Year :(

Ughhhh.... I'm feeling rough as hell. And it's not because I had some wild drunken fun night out.
I had no dinner, nevermind, I planned to go to bed early anyway because I was tired. Put Myla to bed at her usual time. Was just winding down and getting ready for my bed. David was in the living room drinking beers and watching Football on tv (Celtics Vs Rangers), shouting at the tv, the usual. Lol.
There's lively chatter coming from the balcony upstairs most of the evening, a NYE gathering I guess. And then at 11pm a bright orange flare of lights came from the balcony above ours, and I could hear a crackling sound. At first I thought Oh SHIT, are the idiots upstairs lighting FIREWORKS for New Year's Eve on the balcony?!!!! WTF they're gonna burn my house down. I changed out of my pajamas (just in case I need to grab Myla and evacuate).
Then the next moment, a waterfall of hot wax came pouring down onto my balcony. It sounded like water pouring down. Then I checked when it stopped coming down, and realized it's WAX!!!! WTF.
By this time, David, with alcohol in his system no less, started shouting from our balcony, "Oi! What the fuck you think you doing?!!!"
Then he charged upstairs, and banged on their door. Think they must have shit themselves because suddenly the lights all off, their balcony gone quiet. He was still fuming and told me to call the police, so I rang the guardhouse first ( thinking maybe they could go up and check wtf is going on and please stop dripping hot wax into my balcony! Luckily it was 11pm and Myla is asleep, otherwise she would have been seated in the balcony watching the world go past anyway, no answer from guardhouse, so I rang our neighbourhood police post (The Tanglin one, maybe that's a HQ lol, but it's the closest one I could think of in a panic).
The police took a while to arrive (I think because it's NYE, a busy time). By which time I am seriously tired, from the day, and also from trying to calm David the fuck down, and stop him from going upstairs again to confront them. David said he was going to his bed, and tell the police no need to come already, come tomorrow ah. And I'm like I can't do that... they're on the way already. So I waited up. They came just before midnight. Yep rung in the new year with them in my apartment taking photos and statement.

Afterwhich they went upstairs to check what was going on. And then they called for the fire department to go check the upstairs apartment, I think because fire hazard. No one was in trouble, but the fire officers or whatever they're called, advised the neighbours on safe practices and how to avoid starting a fire. The case was logged as an accidental fire. The night is over, thank you, bye bye.
BUT, just as I thought ok, bedtime for me now... David was SNORING (he usually doesn't snore) so loudly it woke the baby. And he kept snoring even though I tried to push and prod him to be quiet. So I was kept awake until 3am trying to make Myla get back to sleep.
I get up at 5 to give her morning bottle. After which she couldn't go back to sleep (usually after her morning bottle which is dreamfed to her, she doesn't fully wake for it and she sleeps till her 8am breakfast), I guess her routine was broken and the lack of sleep that night just perpetuated itself.

So now, I've just finished cleaning hard wax off my balcony rail, glass and floor. I've scrapped it off with a knife, and then used a hot towel to wipe over. But the balcony floors have a slick slippery feel to them still, and I can't get rid of it. What do I do to get wax residue off the tiles?
I am beyond tired today.
What a shit start to my New Year   :(

Super DIY Cake Smash shoot (under $15 !)

Myla Rae turns 1 tomorrow ! :)

We are not having a party... because... she's too young to know what's going on or even remember this day. Plus she doesn't have like friends to invite. A couple of my friends have similar aged baby girls.. and that's it! Her party would be filled with older kids, and adults. On top of that, I remember my friends inviting me to their kids parties a lot in the past.. and I HATED it. Like such a waste of my time, attending some kid's party. Bahaha...

But to commemorate this milestone, I did a Cake Smash shoot for her at home... so she would have photos to look back on.

Here's how I did everything for $15. (seriously $15 out of my pocket lol)... and lots of fun.

Things I used:
CAKE (spent $10.70)
I bought a $2 pandan chiffon cake.
A $5 tub of vanilla frosting from Cold Storage.
A $1.20 bottle of red food colouring
$2 Icing tool from Daiso
Number 1 Candle I got from Carousell at 50cents.

Just a a few tiny drops of colouring in each bowl to get diff shades.

It's surprisingly easy to pipe on icing. Anyway, it's a cake smash, so messy icing also ok.
Outfit (Spent $4)
At tutu dress from China (I bought online 2 months ago and it only arrived a few days before the shoot!! Phew! I did have a back up plan of just wearing a dress she already had in her wardrobe, but thankfully, the tutu arrived in time).

Backdrop (Spent $0)
I used her Parklon mat, the back had a zigzag design which I thought was kind of fun looking. But my second option was just to use a white bed sheet. If you use bedsheet as backdrop, remember to iron the creases out, drumple crumple wont be nice! I don't have any stands, so I just used my clothes drying rack to clip the backdrop up.

Photography (Spent $0)
I used my iPhone camera. And edited using an app called Beauty Plus cos I already had it in my phone, you can use whatever app you are used to using.

Here's a few of my favourite shots!

Headband is cute but she would not keep it on! Argh!
Live to eat.. lol


Happy 1st Birthday Myla Rae  xxxxx

Shoes for Baby Walking!

Myla Rae is about to start walking soon :) She can stand, and she can cruise while holding on to things. She has yet to take independent steps. But I think she'll do it quite soon, exciting times ahead....
Eh Mummy, Why I got no shoes???
Her previous shoes were all pre-walker type, or most of the time, she just wears socks when we go out, since her feet didn't touch the ground.... until last week lol.
So excited for her to try her first pair of walking shoes from Hiro & Jack. Her feet are 10cm so she wears size 11 cm. (Measure baby's foot from heel to toe and +1cm for a good comfy fit) The Walker range has 12 and 14cm too. The pre-walker range has smaller sizes, even preemie size. Their shoes come in a whopping 38 Designs now.

All handmade and they ship baby shoes worldwide.
Some really cute and Christmasy designs available this season! 

I find these Hello Kitty Ribbons so sweet and adorable. They are from the Winter Collection.

She took to them very well, they are not a big adjustment for Myla Rae (so she didn't try to rip them off!) as it's not a big jump from her pre-walker shoes or socks, these are just as soft and comfy.

The difference is, the Walker range of shoes has a non-slip sole, this gives them more stability and traction when walking... or trying to walk. Now her feet will be well protected when we are out, and she wants to toddle and explore.

Check out the awesome trendy designs for your dapper looking baby.

They have gift hampers too, perfect for Christmas coming up :) All at Hiro & Jack online and on Facebook and IG .
