Monday blues and mini haul

My son is probably the clingiest toddler on earth. He clings to his dad 24/7 and monday is the worst for him. Every monday morning, he cries and threw tantrums. We tried talking to him and explaining to him that Daddy needs to work. We also tried to make his monday the most exciting day of the week, new art activities, new books to read, unboxing of a stock toy (yes, I stock up on toys whenever there's a good sale!) and we usually picked up daddy at the office to shorten his waiting time. Any tips for separation anxiety? 😢

Speaking of good sale, sharing with you my mini haul from last week 😊

Got these three books from a booksale at Harboufront Centre, the first two costs 2 for $5.00. They are both hardcover paper books but it's ok because my son still loves dinosaurs. I'm starting to collect Christmas books and I'm happy to see this classic. The third book is a board book which costs $5.90. The books are in good condition but a bit dirty, good thing I have my trusty UV pocket sterilizer from UV Care to clean my son's new books properly.

Giant supermarket at IMM  have occasional book sales at their entrance near the cashier. We already scored a few good deals at their book sales. Last week, we chanced upon their sale again. 5 board books for $20.00. My son just discovered the teletubbies show at cbeebies and is currently one of his favorite shows. I'm collecting Mr. Men series also for him because those are my favorites too! Timmy time is another old favorite of my son from Disney Junior. Seeking a Santa to add to his Christmas book collection because it's ber season already and just like a true Pinoy! I'm singing Jose Mari Chan songs already in my head 😂

I went to Spotlight last week to check for some bedsheets (they have 1000 tc at less than 50sgd per set!) and saw some art materials on sale for 50-70% off. We scored these goodies for a grand total of $5.00!

Mothercare Singapore have occasional in store sales even if it's not GSS or change of season sales. I love looking for the yellow tags! Like this set of Dino socks for $3.00 only! The london theme socks only have 15% off but my son loves double decker buses and british soldiers. I also bought the shoes (also on sale!) and i bought different sizes for extras.The denim dinosaurs have a twinnie pair at size 31 for Thirdy which I sent to Manila already.

Singapore can be really a pretty expensive country! That's why I'm always on the look out for sales and bargains! 😍

Our 10 dollar cake hack activity

A couple  of weeks ago, I saw a beautiful cake hack posted by one of our closest friends based in AU. I can't believe she didn't bake the cake! it looks so legit! 😄 The following day, we were at the supermarket and I saw these ready made cake icings. Jatrick grabbed a few thinking it's toothpaste 😃 I thought we can make a kiddie cake hack and it's a perfect Sunday afternoon activity for our little one. We don't have woollies or coles cake here, so I bought a house brand banana loaf, a couple of ready made cake icings and chocolate sprinkles.

I cut the banana loaf and shaped it to letter J (apologies for my cake hack skills!)
 and spread the blue icing with a spatula from daiso. Jatty picked the color blue icing. And with his old muchkin spoon, he "decorated" his cake with chocolate sprinkles.


He was very careful with the chocolate sprinkles and trying not to create a mess.  😊😊  I wanted to add a few toy topper on top for a proper picture op but my toddler decided to eat his creation while I was looking for small toys.

I asked him if he enjoyed our Sunday activity and he nodded and gave me a blue icing smile. 😅

Staycation at Fullerton Hotel Singapore

My parents and (our big baby) Thirdy visited us this summer, very timely also for my Papa's birthday and their wedding anniversary. We were planning to do a quick weekend getaway outside the island but my passport is expiring soon! Good thing, I checked our passports before I booked anything. So we went with our reliable celebration place, The Fullerton Hotel. We first stayed at Fullerton for our boyfriend/girlfriend anniversary last year and we were highly impressed! They were very accommodating and very child friendly! From a complete toiletry kit for Jatty to a free ice cream and art kit to keep him busy during our stay. We booked two postmaster rooms through their official website, after comparisons from and, booking directly came out cheaper.

Upon our check in, I informed them that we're celebrating my parent's wedding anniversary and then, they also took note that my papa's birthday the following week too. Their room have a bottle of wine, chocolate cake and strawberries and there's balloons on the bed too. 

Our room check in was a bit delayed, good thing, my parents' room was provided at 2pm so we stayed there for awhile. Due to the delay, they provided a late check out at 2pm. Thirdy stayed with us and we were pleasantly surprised that his breakfast and extra bed are free of charge! 😊 Hotels usually charge extra for breakfast when kids are above 7. 

My favorite part of the room is the bathroom, the spacious bath tub and separate shower make a big difference for me and my bathroom hoarder husband. And the enclosed toilet and hi-tech features!

The Fullerton Bears: Robby, Thirdy, Lizzy ❤❤

If you're staying in Fullerton Hotel, I highly recommend the complimentary heritage tour and don't forget to watch the video stories of the hotel and the people who used to work when it was still a government office and a waterboat house. You can watch on their TV or online -- The Fullerton Heritage :) I always watch it whenever we stay there,very heartwarming and nostalgic.

WillI go back? YES!!!!
