Even Mothers have Ambitions…..

I’ve got strong maternal instincts since young.
So I’ve always wanted to be a mother when I was growing up….
I’ve even got photos to proof for it!

When I realized that being a mother does not constitute as a real ambition in primary school, I wanted to be a doctor.

And since I wasn’t the brightest student in school, I’ve lowered my expectation for the essay writing of my ambition to being a nurse.

When I went on to secondary school I was very inspired by one of my teachers and wanted to be one too! I did write an essay about this particular teacher and won the teenage magazine teacher of the year competition. Unfortunately, society is not that forgiving…. when another teacher came to know about my dreams of wanting to become a teacher, He snorted and said, “you are in NORMAL TECHNICAL STREAM!!! How to be a teacher?!?!?” Many thanks to this teacher, I’ve risen from Normal Technical to Normal Academic and finally to Express stream!

But however, I thought about being a hair dresser if I did end up in ITE.

During my upper secondary school years, I took up fashion and fabric. I love the subject so much that I openly declare that I wanted to be a fashion designer.

While harboring thoughts about being a fashion designer, I also wanted to join the Singapore Navy as a sailor and sail the 7 seas. However, a career exhibition crushed my dreams. The officer plainly told me I was too small size to be onboard!! Arrgh!!!

And finally, a flight attendant. I used to watch Singapore Airlines commercial with such lustful eyes. Hoping that, perhaps one fine day, I could be one of those pretty girls representing Singapore, sashaying the sarong kebaya down the aisle!

But in Reality…..
-I became a Deejay. Mainly spinning retro music for clubs. Yes, I know it’s pretty unbelievable! That was one of the best job ever. Coz I was never late for work!!! You see, I am never a morning person!

-I’ve worked shortly in a football magazine as marketing agent selling advertisement space. This company has since gone bust and they still owe me MONEY!

-I was headhunted to work in a nightspot (Nox/Samsara) as event managers.
-Then further, head hunted to House of Ong as marcom manager.

-Finally decide that I had enough with nighlife and ended up in KFC (Yes! That place that sells you your finger lickin’ good chicken!) as trainee manager and finally promoted to 2nd assistant manager.

-At the end of the day, I did fulfill one of my life long ambition of being a flight attendant with Singapore Airlines!

And for the best part….
I became a mother to 3 wonderful kids.
And who was that idiot that says being a mother does not constitute as a career!!!
I became a FULL TIME MOTHER, working 24/7!

Seriously Funny Kids Party Linky: Prospect of Riding on an Ambulance…..

This happened a while back while I was still pregnant with James.
At the final stage of pregnancy.
Since there were 2 prior c-sections, this increases my risk of uterus rupture.
The gynecologist kept stressing that I have to rush to the hospital
the very instant I experience any contraction pain.

Due to the nature of Kitson’s job,
which requires him to be out of town frequently,
I can only trust the kids with my life.

I’ve packed my hospital bag and drill the kids.
Me: If mummy need to go to the hospital during an emergency, call this number and grab this bag!
Hiroshi: Issit the Ambulance will come?
Me: Yes!!
Hiroshi: Then where will we go?!?!?
Me: Up on the ambulance with me.
Hiroshi: Yeah!!! We can press the eeorrreeorr on the ambulance!!!
Me: *Slap Forehead*

A collection that will bring a smile across any parent’s face.

Foodie Friday: Easy Rainbow Cake

Easy Rainbow Cake TutorialA singapore mom blogger bakes surprise rainbow cupcakes for her hubby's birthday

I haven’t been baking much since the arrival of James. So I thought Kitson’s birthday would be a good excuse to bake up a storm all over again….. Taking into consideration that I still have a demanding baby on the boobs who function better than any military clocks, I had to KISS. (Keep It Short and Simple)

My eyes and heart were fixed on The Rainbow Cake. And since I had to keep within my time constrain of 3 hourly blocks, I had to explore options of instant cake mix and frosting.

Kitson’s cake is fully “sponsored” by Passion Card Points. Consumer loyalty rocks!! I am going to shop more often at Cold Storage!! It is such a delightful surprise….

I’ve used Betty Cooker’s white cake mix.

Preheat oven to 180°c

And since I am damn anal by nature, I first measured the weight of my mixing bowl.
Then proceed to prepare the cake as per instructed from the box.
Quick tips to getting perfect layers for easy rainbow cakeThereafter, measure the total mass after mixing in all ingredients – weight of original mixing bowl.
Divide the amount by 6. Then scoop batter into 6 different bowls.
Tint each bowl with the following color purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red
with Wilton’s gel food colors.

Seriously Funny Kids Party Linky: A WHAT Cat?!?!?

We were having lunch at MacDonald one afternoon,
the boy next to our table tried to be friendly and strike up a conversation with Hiroshi…

Friendly Boy: On our way here, I saw a notice under the block. Someone has lost his cat! It is a very expensive cat!!!
Friendly Boy’s Mum: Yeah, It’s a Persian Cat!
Friendly Boy: YUP! It is a Person’s Cat. He is offering $500 for anyone that finds it.

Me: -_-“‘ *mubble under my breath* I hope I find that cat!
