Getting my 5 fingers on 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken

It’s appearing everywhere on my social media feed.
It’s calling out to me, I swear!

I had to have a go at the latest fast food phenomenon
that has taken Singapore by storm.
4 Fingers Crispy Chicken;
the partnership of 4 foodie friend
with promises of the best Koren-styled fried chicken.

As the name clearly suggest, the main highlights were chickens.
Diners were given a choice of either soy garlic or hot sauce
to be “hand painted” on those crispy chickens.

Hiroshi had 3 piece chicken drumstick (soy garlic) combo meal, that comes with a drink and fries. We were also given a choice of either kim chi skinny fries or seaweed red pepper skinny fires for our sides and we chose the later.

When we first sank our teeth into those tender drumsticks, it tasted different. It was very flavorful. But, I didn’t remember it being crispy. Nonetheless, Hiroshi polished the mass tin until kilat kilat!

Many diners were found upgrading their combo meal drinks to Honey Yuzu Tea or Honey Aloe Tea. We had the Honey Yuzu Tea, but the kids didn’t think much of it. Maybe the Honey Aloe Tea might be a better choice for kids?

Sophia had Tonkatsu Chicken Salad combo meal, which came with a drink and fries too.

The adventurous food lover was found picking at her food. She didn’t like it at all. I had to cover her in order to reduce food wastage. Now you know why the pregnancy bulge never wears off! It wasn’t that bad… But I wouldn’t say it tasted incredible too…

I love Calamari. So when I found it on the menu, it was a sure order for me.
Again we were given a choice of either soy garlic or hot sauce for the calamari. I chose soy garlic since I thought the kids might like some of my calamari too.

The squid was tender and the batter light. Love the idea of using a calamansi instead of the usual lemon. Making it very “local”. I personally enjoyed this one.

Overall dinning experience was pleasant.
The restraunt is extremely clean and spacious.

But, I won’t say that this was value for money. We spent on an average of $10/pax but the food just won’t cut it. At the end of my entire dinning experience, I couldn’t tell apart the chickens from squids anymore… They all just tasted like soy garlic.

But still, I’ll say go try it for yourselves and let me know if you felt differently.
(oh… and do be expected to battle a long queue during peak hours)

Life before Kids

When Regina (MummyMoo) asked what did I missed most before kids,
I answered without a shadow of doubt that I Missed Flying!
Life before Kids

SIA Girl Life after kidsFulfilling a life long ambition of being a flight attendant, is one of the best things that has happened in my life!

And it is true when they say do what you love and you’ll never have to work another day in your life.

I miss sashaying down the aisles in the iconic Sarong Kebaya, when I had waist and not a flab filled with stretchmarks.

I miss visiting new places, experiencing new cultures
and meeting different people from all walks of life.

Don’t even get me started with the glorious good food!
Good Food from Frankfurt Spaghetti

I know it sounds pretty insane,
but I miss taking time to doll myself up
without the kids asking me “Are you ready?” a gazillion times.

Plus every trip with Kitson feels like a honeymoon.
(Best of all, PAID HONEYMOON!)
SIA Girl Life before Kids

That’s an awful lot to miss just from flying alone.

Being parents is tough business. After preparing for a whole 9 months, you still get thrown into a world of uncertainty. The memories of life before kids starts getting more and more distant with every dirty diaper changed, weekly spelling drills and daily late night homework revisions.

But even with that being said, I wouldn’t trade my life now for life before kids. Though life is different from what we might have plan or imagine it to be, our kids have brought us endless joy, love & laughter.

Like I’ve shared in 5 simple steps to happiness, life is about counting our blessings.

I am counting my blessings that I wake up every morning
to 3 beautiful children who loves me unconditionally
and openly offers me heaps of loving hugs and kisses whenever needed.

The Power of Boobies

I am glad how a failed attempt at breastfeeding Hiroshi led me to a quest of being more educated at the subject matter. With that knowledge, I’ve successfully breastfed Sophia for 18 months and with James it’s 23 months and counting.

For James, breast milk is not just simply a food source.
It soothes and comforts him whenever needed.

There is an unspeakable bond when I cradle him,
caress his sweaty head,
and see him eye to eye as I breastfeed him.

We nurse in public very frequently.
(If you need tips about nursing in public, I’ve got it covered right HERE.)

Our nursing in public experience has been positive. But as James grows older and bigger, I’ve been getting strange stares and well-meaning strangers coming up to me telling me that my baby is too old to be on the breast.
how old should we stop breastfeeding

Whenever that happens, I am at a loss for words.
How can I even convince these random strangers
that there is really no such thing as too old to be on the breast?

The American Association of Pediatrics recommends that babies be exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of life.  Babies should continue to breastfeed for a year and for as long as mutually desired by the mother and baby.
at which age should a baby stop breastfeeding

The easiest solution would be hiding ourselves in the nursing rooms, and not be seen.

But, that’s not the best solution…
I am very passionate about breastfeeding,
and I do advocate nursing openly in public.

How would you have said or done if you were in the same predicament?

Happy World Breastfeeding Week!

Let’s talk about SEX baby… Let’s talk about the Birds & Bees (Part 2)

Still remember the Sex Talk Blunder I had with Sophia?

So when Hiroshi asked me about SEX the other day,
I paused, thought about it very carefully before replying him.

Hiroshi: Mummy, what is SEX?
Me: What would you like to know about SEX?
Hiroshi: (shows me his student pass) It says SEX M, Does it means I wear M size shirts?
Sex talk with Kids

I swear I could have fallen over and died laughing at his innocence.
But I had to put on a straight face telling him that in this case,
SEX means if you’re a boy or girl, Male or Female.

I was just wondering,
would it cause less confusion
if they used the term gender instead on sex on the student pass?

What do you think?
