When I was pregnant with my first child, I spent a lot of time researching on the best diapers, safest bottles, best practices childcare and childbirth.
During baby shower, I received a packet of diapers in pants form, which I then began to read more about it. This type of diapers are meant for babies who are busy crawling. True enough, when my baby reaches 4-6 months old, changing diapers began to be increasingly difficult as she tossed, turned and crawl.
Then I switched to using Huggies Dry Pants. It made my life easier especially when we are travelling and there's no changing pads or space to lie down the child. With these type of diapers, I can just pull up the diaper like pants or underwear; lying down or standing. And to remove it, I can simply tear at the side and voila! The diaper can be removed quickly and easily. No mess and there's no need to remove her underwear or pants to do that, truly is "“Koyak, Salin & Lepas” or "Pull them up, tear and go! That easy... :)
As I had my second child and life becomes busier, I actually trained my elder child to assist the brother to wear the Huggies Dry Pants himself when mommy is busy! In fact,they like the fact that they could wear and remove the diapers on their own and it does helped to kick-start the toilet training later on.
At the beginning of the toilet-training phase, Huggies Dry Pants really helps me a lot especially during the "emergencies". There was once when I brought my girl out on my own to shop for festive goods, suddenly she wanted to pass urine immediately. Imagine having your cart full of shopping items, toilet is quite a distance away and not having anyone else who could watch it for you so that you could perhaps carry your child and dash to the nearest toilet. What I did then was to quickly walk to the baby diapers aisle and pick up a pack of Huggies Dry Pants and wear it for her on-the-spot(of course I paid for the packet!) and continued with my shopping...lol...not sure if any moms experienced this before. It has been one of those moments that requires fast action in motherhood for "emergencies" cases like this!
Disclaimer: I received a few Huggies Drypants sample to let my kids try on. Nevertheless, my kids are long-time user of Huggies Drypants. Thus, all review comments are all from my own experience of using Huggies Drypants.

Ok..perhaps fried rice is not any special dish per say, but this one is prepared by DH. Yesterday, he volunteered to make egg toast for KY as her lunchpack. Who knows the kids finished off half the bread loaf last night. Thus, i cooked some rice for both of us as lunch. While I am steaming the rice, I steamed along ABC soup. Putting in whatever remaining ingredients I have in the fridge, i.e., potatoes, tomatoes, cashew nuts, red dates and ginger. I scooped the ingredient up for breakfast munching and put the remaining soup in thermos for three of us.
KY always love his dad's "rare" cooking. So yea..it's a special lunch pack today(sorry egg toast is too yummy ...I ate it for breakfast in the car without snapping any picture of it....wait till DH next offer to prepare for his princess ;)
Last weekend, my gal had replacement class for the extra Chinese New Year holiday. Thus, i haven't got much time to go marketing.
So today i made sushi as it's the ingredients are readily available at home.
We only need very little ingredients for this kids-proof dish ;)
Rice (I usually use sushi rice but run out of stock so made use of the normal Jasmine fragrant rice..as sticky too ;D)
Salt to taste
Soy sauce to dip
I cooked the rice(add bit of salt and when cool add bit of brown rice vinegar) the night before, so am all ready to roll the sushi in the morning after frying the eggs (add some pepper, pinch of sugar and soy sauce to taste) and cutting the zucchini.
Then i would just spread the rice on top of the seaweed, place the cucumber, eggs slices and sprinkle the pumpkin floss. And roll, roll, roll. Leave it to form the shape and continue other rolls then cut them into the right sizes. SE prefer a smaller ones..so I cut it smaller for him and his sister. Then, i put the soy sauce into the small little fish-shaped container I got from Daiso for them to dip. Oh yea..if you got the wasabi tube even better ;) I forgot to put some for DH in his lunchpack today..lol..
Recently ordered the sushi roller...wait till i get it then will review and see how fast n useful it is to make my lunch-packing and sushi rolling a breeze..anything which can help me to prepare healthy lunchpack in a shorter and more enjoyable way ..i would love to try..hehe
(P.s.: Sorry for the blurred image..a mozzy suddenly landed on my hand while taking the picture..haih..any mozzy-repelling ways..pls. update me...the ever-dengue-sufferer phobia...)
Being a full-time working mom with two kids(and one more coming), very often than not I dreaded Monday morning. As it is the start of another tiring and rushing weekdays. I believe many moms might have the same feelings.
However it is something inevitable and something we can't really avoid..
But we could certainly change the way we look, manage and perceive it. 'Cos I felt there's really no "life" to it if we are bogged down by the daily rush hours and forget to smell the roses or even care for the people around us.
I suddenly noticed this awhile ago when I was chatting with an old buddy who has just married with no kids yet. As I went on babbling about my hectic daily rush hour, I overheard she mentioned that she hasn't take her dinner and felt rather thirsty. We were sitting in another friend's car then and they are to about to drop me off before her.
As I was filled with the Sunday dreadness of coming Monday and so full of the list to do, I actually forgot to take the chance to care for another person. I could have passed them a few cans of drinks when they dropped me off..
Life is really much more than the daily hustle bustle..else there's really no meaning to it. And we would be living like a robot or zombie, passing each day or merely live without really living with our heart...what a huge waste of God-given life...
So yea folks! I am jotting this down as a reminder to myself not to be overwhelmed and buried by day-to-day busi-ness that I lost the opportunity to smell the roses or even share some light-hearted moments with someone I cared about including DH and even the kids which I always hurried around...
