Baby G turns 7 weeks this weekend and I’ve been cloth diapering part time for the last 6 weeks since we got back from the hospital. It’s been alot of trial and error, to say the least, wee leaks and figuring out his pee/poo schedule. Some tips on troubleshooting leaks. I cloth diaper during the […]

For the entire time I was pregnant I likened it to my cancer journey – you get plenty of unsolicited advice and fear-mongering paranoia don’t do this, don’t eat that, eat this ton of supplements, eat all these vitamins, buy this, buy that. ūüôĄ It was the only thing I could relate to as well […]

What strange times we live in. Baby G is now a little over 4 weeks old. I’ve revisited this earlier draft and just publishing now. I was afraid to do so in advance, with the anxiety of jinxing myself given my medical history. I gave birth via an elective C section as Baby G was […]

I’ve been fortunate enough to have trickles of projects but the volume […]

I haven’t jumped on the keto bandwagon just yet, as most of my friends have and swear by the efficacy of the diet on weightloss. I love my carbs, so diet is a really difficult practice for me despite being pretty disciplined with everything else. Inspired by my friend Joan making all sorts of delicious […]

I’ve been at sewing for a couple of years now and made a couple of dozen of toddler dresses for my baby niece and a number of friend’s little girls, but it was my first time sewing rompers. And added layer of fun picking out multi-coloured mismatched snap buttons to brighten the day! I also […]

My latest story for Healthy Hong Kong. I have found it immensely helpful in feeling grounded, balanced and re-energised. Whether it’s the grounding “Yang” energy of gongs or the “Yin” of crystal bowls, I’ve found sound therapy through vibrations really calming and rejuvenating.
