Nifty Quirks

So while I have pretty much fallen out of Ninja Mums, I'm pretty impressed at my 2nd project. Say hello to Nifty Quirks!!

While most items are on preorder basis, we've got a bunch of instock items for grabs. Mainly coz I have a crazy shopper as a partner.

Business is slowly picking up with a bunch of repeat customers. Alhamdulilah. Hope it grows but for now, pretty thankful.

We'e on Carousell, just search our username: NiftyQuirks and on FB,

On a quest to a diaperless child

On most nights, I would be asleep by now. Tonight I am staying up, watching the husband race on his PS4 while I await the next hour to carry a sleepy child to the toilet.

Yes, the dreaded nighttime potty training. She's doing really great being diaperless in the day and during her naps. I still have her in her pull-ups when in school just in case she gets too engrossed in playing and forgets she needs to pee. But the moment we're home, diaperless. Even managed a short trip to the mall! Yeay!

Of course this wouldn't have been possible without me and the husband screaming our heads off during the first few days. So glad that phase is over. Now she's the one going "MAMA! I WANT TO POOPOO!". Signal for both poo and pee. Oh well, as long as she tells us.

Diploma DONE!!

I have, after three freaking long years, finally graduated from my Diploma in Business Administration course. Enrolled when I just got married because husband was working weird shift and had too much time. While studying, I got pregnant. Anyway, done!

This was made possible thanks to the support of my family for taking care of the kiddo while I was in class and the husband for well, the encouragement.

Now I'm contemplating taking a degree course. With the house, our finances are pretty much screwed. We shall see~

Me no likey PTM

For the sake of Alysha, I've brushed up on my mandarin. At the last parent-teacher meeting in June, her teachers said that kiddo was picking up the language pretty well. Since then, I've been talking to her in a mix of English, Malay and (broken)Mandarin. I guess at this age, she'll learn anything quite easily.

Overall, she's doing pretty well in school. Although she can follow instructions, there are times when she'll just rebel. Theeeen, there's her random biting classmates, even when no one is provoking her. Fwah stress. I don't mind if she's the one getting the bites but it worries me what the other parents will do when she bites her friends. -__-"

But her behavior is getting better and for that, I am thankful to her teachers. Here's to another year of school, insyaAllah.

One of these days I bet your heart will be broken

We got really excited when it was announced they would be playing in Singapore. But a week to their concert, they cancelled. So when I heard they were touring again, I made it known to the husband that if they head to Perth, we'll be there.

Set my reminder. Camped the website and once the tickets were on sale, I booked ours within 13 minutes. Seats, none of that standing nonsense because we are short Asians. Short, short trip just to see them. Kiddo will be home with her grandparents.

Of course, I would love a dinner date or a random gift for my 4th wedding anniversary. But this is just way better. You can have your dinner dates any day, you can't see Foo Fighters whenever you want to. Unless DVD ah, can replay.

Great Eastern Women's Run 2014

I hate running. But yesterday's 5km run with the sister was my first since kiddo came along. I ran 2km for one morning (step training uh eh) and slacked off.

The official timing isn't out yet but I think I clocked 42mins. Frankly, that was better than my previous runs. It would usually take me 50mins. Could have been better.

My legs are in pain but I feel kinda energized. Think I'll start running again now that the husband is on insane 12hr shifts.

I don't quite feel like blogging anymore. That would probably be the reason why the pictures in this blog have been deleted. Bah.
