***18th May***

After a long month of absence, Papa Yap brought us to Marina Square for dinner. Had an early dinner at Putien Restaurant as we were very hungry. Oh yes I enjoyed eating at Putien. The food standard has been constant and is definitely to our liking. So we ordered the usual dishes and a seaweed with crabmeat&beancurd thick soup.


Our first time trying this and we think that it tastes good! 🙂


Braised pig intestine


Homemade beancurd – the only dish that Fussy eater Darian wants to eat!


Deep fried chicken with garlic


My two lovely prince and princess! ❤❤


A short while at the playground.


Darian loves piggyback!


Ninja Turtles are back in town. Guess I will be seeing Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael soon! Haha 😉

After dinner, we shopped around and got ourselves some random stuff.  Then we ended the night at Mcdonald’s. Tried the new Red Peri Scorcher burger and we find it tasty. Yup spicy enough for us! Anyway a big welcome back to our dearest Papa!❤



Belated birthday surprise

***1st December***


My sister and John came to visit us on Saturday. She really surprised me with a cake after I came out from the bathroom… And she insisted to take totally unglam photos of me with the cake. Idiotic sister I have. 😉 Then it was down to Putien (yet again) with my sister and John for a birthday treat. Well she was the one who wanted to eat at Putien, not me, but of course I wouldn’t mind it too. My sister ordered so many dishes. We were like having a feast! Not only these dishes, she also ordered a medium putien fried bee hoon and deep-fried chicken with garlic. Thanks to Mister good eater John, we finished up all the yummy food! Seriously how to get back to pre-pregnancy shape when people around continually feed me with good food! 😉 As for my Birthday present, it is still on pending as I don’t really know what I want.


Drunken Cockles – Wine Marinated Cockles cooked with plenty of garlic and chilli. The only dish that I don’t eat. But according to the two of them, this dish is really appetising and tasty.


Spinach with salted egg and century egg in supreme stock. Alright this savory dish is well-flavoured and definitely goes along very well with rice.


Braised pig intestine. Thumbs up!


Tea leaf prawns. Hmm I wonder why this dish looks so different as compared to the picture on the menu. Anyway it still tastes good. Something unique as the prawns are served in a basket garnished with tea leaves. The prawns are of a good size and well seasoned with some sweet sauce too!


Homemade beancurd. The beancurd is really soft and smooth in the inside. Tastes great!

Life is good!


A jolly good Saturday

***24th November***

We were at Vivo City in the afternoon to do some shopping for Papa Yap and Darian. After buying Darian’s birthday pressie from Toy R Us and Papa Yap’s Pedro shoes, we walked over to Harbourfront Mothercare to get some clothing for the kids. We happened to see a bear costumed character in Harbourfront and Darian was not afraid of it at all. He rushed forward and gave it a beary hug. 🙂 Before we reached Mothercare, Baby Dyann woke up from an hour of nap and so we brought her to Baby Spa for a swimming session first instead. It is a must to let the babies drink milk and take a nap an hour before the swim as they tend to get real grouchy if they are tired or hungry. We were glad that she did not fuss at all throughout the session and in fact enjoyed the swim. She was busy kicking the water and floating around. So adorable can!

After getting some clothing from Harbourfront Mothercare, we headed to Tampines Mall Putien for Darian’s birthday dinner together with my parents in law. I love the food there especially the signature “Fried Heng Hwa Bee Hoon”. The well-flavoured Bee hoon is fine and chewy and to eat it with all the ingredients is simply delightful! Thumbs up! 🙂 Honestly, the rest of the dishes is mouth-watering too. I was too busy eating that I had forgotten to take the pictures of the two dishes Stir fried Yam and Homemade beancurd. Hah never mind there will always be another time. 😉

Right after dinner, I surprised Darian with the Angry Bird cake from Polar Cakes shop and he was super happy. The Putien Restaurant gave us a complimentary polaroid shot as we had a birthday celebration there. Nice! And so the family polaroid shot was given to my mother in law as momento. After the fabulous dinner, we continued with our shopping. We went to mothercare again and this time, my mother in law bought tops for the kids. So we reached home with much shopping loots and a truly happy boy who simply cannot wait to open up all his pressies and play with them! 🙂

Happy 3rd Birthday my boy! ❤

So it’s another tiring yet fruitful Saturday! 🙂
