Gallop into the Chinese New Year with FOX Kids & Baby

We were invited to FOX Kids & Baby;
Spring Summer Private Shopping Spree last weekend.
With Chinese New Year just right about the corner,
this invitation couldn’t have come in a more appropriate time!

We took the opportunity to pick out 2 outfits for Chinese New Year.

Sophia was very excited about about shopping, while Hiroshi is nonchalant about it.

For the first day of Chinese New Year, Sophia picked up a white hello kitty top and a pink flora skirt. I like the lacy detailing on the white hello kitty top. She loves this outfit so much I had a hard time getting her to change into her second outfit!

And for the 2nd day of Chinese New Year, Sophia picked up a white long pants with pink flora prints. It’s Grungy but yet feminine at the same time. Paired with a Quirky Toucan Motif white tee shirt and a pink cardigan sealed the look for day 2.

RED is an auspicious color for Chinese New Year.
And Hiroshi won’t walk near anything near that shade.
Some clever layering convinced him otherwise.

For the first day of Chinese New Year, we’ve picked up a comfortable denim shorts with boyish Pirate Ship Motif tee shirt. Threw a red shirt over the entire outfit, he was instantaneously ready for Chinese New Year!

We choose a simple RED “V” neck tee shirt for the 2nd day of Chinese New Year. When Hiroshi saw the blaring RED tee shirt, he shook his head and said NO. We had to convince him that he will look good with the blue and white checked shirt over it. Coupled with a beige shorts, he looks outstanding!

Shopping for James was the easiest. Since he still does not know how to protest over the choice of clothes (yet).

For the first day of Chinese New Year, We’ve picked up a casual plaid blue shorts. And as for the top, it was a tough fight between the green Mickey or orange Goofy tee shirt. It was hard to decide since they are both equally as adorable! We went with the later simply because Goofy is my favorite character from Walt Disney.

And for day 2 of Chinese New Year, we’ve picked up a comfortable dark grey 3/4 pants with vertical light grey stripes. The waistband of the pants is extremely comfortable. Paired with a blue nautical theme tee shirt, James was all ready to sail the 7 seas and collect some ang bao this Chinese New Year!

JAIL BREAK 101

If you remember, not too long ago, I posted James being stuck in a sticky situation

He has leveled up since his head doesn’t fit through the front gates anymore.

He found our keys and has been constantly using it to jail break.

Tips to becoming a better parent could be as simple as M&M!

It is strange how parenting advice can be so seemingly simple, but yet difficult at the same time…..

As part of the school’s initiatives to help new parents and students cope with the transition, parents were encouraged to sign up for workshops and talks while their children are in class.

And one of such workshop was organised by the parent support group of Horizon Primary School under the topic of How to be an Engage Parent.

To be brutally honest, I sneered at the topic thinking how can a bunch of “non professionals” teach me a thing or 2 about parenting!!

But, I was so wrong… I ended the day deeply humbled.

Now I am sharing this so that many other parent on the brim of losing their mind over parenting could see light too.

This is not a gimmick! Tips to becoming a better parent could be as simple as M&M!
Singapore mom blogger Irene Soh shares Tips to becoming a better parent

Just in case you were wondering, this is definitely not an advertorial for the colorful buttoned size chocolate we all love and come know as M&M. This is 2 parenting tips that makes a world of difference in what we do in our daily lives.

Signapore mom blogger Irene Soh shares Tips to becoming a better parentThe first M is Modelling.

You might find it a tad appalling, but WE as parents are our child’s first role model. We were the SUPERHEROs in their eyes. The ones that never fail to find a solution to the thing they thought would have never worked out.

I was amused when Sophia said she wants to be a MOM when she grows up a couple of years ago. But today, I realized it is the power of modelling!

So before we scream, smack, shove our kids aside or shut ’em up. Perhaps we should just take a step back and think how we can be better role models.

After all, what comes around goes around especially when you least expected it!

Singapore mom blogger Irene Soh shares Tips to becoming a better parentThe second M is Memories.

My dad passed on a long time ago. 24 years ago to be precised.

In my memories, my father was the BEST father ever. He was soft spoken, kind, accommodating and has never laid hands on me. I was spoiled rotten to a certain extend I guess.

I will always remember him for his patience in gardening. His love for fishes and birds. And also his keen interest in semi precious stones.

The ONLY time he lost his temper, he threw a gardening scissors on the dinning table. And the patched up dining table still lies at my parent’s place!

The one thing that I can NEVER forget is the fun we had in our fishing trips at Pasir Ris Fishing Pond. This will forever be etched in my memories.

Now can you see why creating good memories are important?
People will not stay forever. But memories would.

What can we do to create beautiful memories for our children?

For 2014, I want to be a better role model for my kids 
and continue to create beautiful memories worthy of remembering for a lifetime!

p/s: Thank you Alex and Wendy for sharing these 2 simple but yet empowering parenting tips!
