[Food] — Shanghai Dim Sum • Markham & Review

e359

Shanghai Plaza is located at Chalmers Road and Highway 7. My husband always craves for Shanghai cuisine and so we’ve tried quite a lot of different Shanghai restaurants. I think we’ll need to visit Shanghai soon to see if there is any difference between the food here and there. I’ve heard that it’s different the way they make their ‘siu long bao’ – one day I’ll know.

We couldn’t order too much since it was only the three of us dining there that night. We had siu long bao, wor teep, and a fried rice. Everything was fresh and delicious. We can’t wait to go back and try some of their other dishes. Have you been here? What kind of dishes would you recommend? Comment below!

[Food] — Me Cha Me at Highway7 & Kennedy Rd • Markham & Review

g0172

I blogged about Me Cha Me back in December 2014 – you can read my honest review here. I have nothing to say but good thing about this restaurant because it is the ONLY Asian restaurant that really caters to kids. Parents with kids will really understand why I love it so much, Happy kids and happy parents right? I don’t quite remember what’s the exact price for their kids meal but it’s between $4.99-$5.99 plus tax. Which comes with a drink or dessert, sides, and a entree. Pretty decent. They even have crayons and papers for the kids to draw.

One downfall is that this restaurant is always SO busy! Hope they’ll be expanding soon or maybe add a few different locations in. They serve a lot of desserts which I haven’t tried yet. Have you been here? What is your fave items in this restaurant? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more foodie reviews & Adventures – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Food] — Pho Pad Thai • Markham & Review

e356

Pho Pad Thai is one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants when I’m craving for Viet food. They serve Thai food as well but I never got to try their Thai dishes. The soup base here for their pho(s) is awesome! Do you agree? It’s either Pho or the Lemongrass porkchop with rice I go for.

I should try out some new Vietnamese restaurants in town – what would you recommend? Comment below to let me know! Stay tune for more daily foodie adventures and reviews – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for stopping by!

[Jayden] — 4 Year & 9 Months Update • Vacationing Like A Boss

He’s turned 4 years & 9 months this month and boy does he have personality! He does not like to smile for the camera anymore! Instead he’ll make a lot of funny faces. I think mama took way too many photos of him? I can’t help it!

He still loves his baby brother very much. Loves to give him tons of kisses in the morning and when he gets home from school. He does get annoyed with his baby brother crying though. He hasn’t express that he hates it when he cries. We often ask him if we should put baby brother time out if he cries and his answer is ‘no’. He’s a very loving brother. Makes baby brother laugh too! Makes my heart so full watching my 2 boys! Let’s hope it stays this way!

We were in Cancun, Mexico last month – this is his 5th resort trip. So he knows the drills already. He loves his airplanes and water parks – so when we tell him were going on vacation – he anticipates all these things already. He behaved quite well during this trip. One thing that’s different is – he knows how to find other kids to play with him this time. Last few times he just played by himself. I love how he communicates and play with other kids. He enjoys vacation like a boss! When he gets tried – he’ll lounge and have a snack. So it’s really easy bringing him on vacation!

This month we are working on a few things. Listening skills, being more independent, and reading more. He’s very loving but he can have an attitude at the same time. We are working on a lot of things this month for sure. That’s it for all the updates – stay tune for more reviews and hauls – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Haul] — Personalized Passport Holder • The Heart Stuff

g0156 g0157

Isn’t this cute? Remember my blog post about these adorable personalized passport photos back in August 2015? We never thought we’d be having another child so soon but good thing that #THEHEARTSTUFF shop was still around. I’d have a problem if I couldn’t get one for my second son! I’m OCD and I have to have everything matching right? I love it – it came really quickly.

g0158

Look how cute this set of passport holders are! I love them so much – it just completes it perfectly. If your looking for something personalize like this – do shop at her shop. It’s on the affordable price and the material is perfect. Stay tune for more daily reviews and hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time. Thanks for dropping by!

Have a GORGEOUS day!!!

[Celebration] — My 28th Birthday

I celebrated my birthday this year at Cancun, Mexico with my three loves. It was my first time celebrating my birthday out of the country. Kind of cool! The staff decorated my room and left a heart shape birthday cake. It was very special. We had a relaxing and fun day! I love spending quality time with my family!

When I got back from our trip – I had a belated birthday dinner with my in-laws at Baton Rouge. Munchkin#1 got to sing me ‘Happy Birthday’ again. I love it!

How do I feel about being 28? To be honest – after having kids – age is just really a number. The only thing that concerns me is to maintain my skincare and not look too old. Lol. Twenty eight is pretty close to 30s for sure. But I’m already very blessed with two healthy kids & a loving husband. What more can I ask for right?

However, I’m greedy and I have one wish this year. I wish my stepmom and every ALS patient on this earth will have a cure. That’ll be my wish every year. Might be greedy to ask but they deserve to be alive.

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

[Cayden] — 5 Month Update • First Vacation

My little cutie pie has turned 5 months!! He’s started to be more active – shifting around on the bed or rug. He could not be unattended anymore. He would chit chat with you if he’s in the mood to. He loves to laugh and smile a lot. The frowning face is almost retiring and gone!

He enjoys sitting on the Bumbo chair than the bouncer or swing. He just loves the straight sitting position instead of being slanted.

Loves to watch us talk and listens very well. He still loves licking and sucking his fingers. Even though he knows he’s not allow to. When he understands he’s not allow to – he then takes it out. Then he sneakily puts it back in. Sometimes he’ll turn his head the other way to do it. Assuming we can’t see it. Smart or what!?

Still drinks a lot of milk. He needs his milk before a nap and sleep.

I’m starting to create a routine for him with two naps a day. I say 2-3 hour each time. So far – its going good. After I nap-train him – I’ll be sleep training him for the night. Hopefully mommy can sleep through the night soon.

As for solids – we are introducing it to him this month (December). Doctor recommended at 5 month – since he’s a preemie.

During our vacation – he did amazing! Not much crying but with lots of broken naps. I can understand because sleeping in the car seat is uncomfortable. He didn’t get sick or anything – that’s the most worry I have. Phew* He didn’t swim because the water was too cold for him. He only dips his foot into the water and that’s about it. Maybe next year will be better.

Still wearing size 2 diapers but when I finish with all size 2s, he’ll be starting size 3 soon. For size 2 – I only bought 2 large boxes. Need to start stocking up on size 3 and 4 soon.

Grandparents gave us money to get the kids gifts. For Munchkin#2 – we’ll be picking up 2-3 boxes of diapers as gifts for him. He has basically everything already. All he needs is diapers and wipes for now. Practical right!?

Not sure what his weight is this month but he sure does feel heavier. I love being carried but mommy doesn’t carry him too much. I don’t want to spoil him. When he wants to be carried – he knows he can cry and have what he wants. What I do is. I let him cry till he stops. Then I go over to carry him. Haha am I mean or what?

There’s going to be a lot of things to do when he starts solids. Than I can have a solid routine for him.

Ill start to look at those community center programs that I can bring him during weekdays. Something for him to do and keep him busy.

That’s it for all the update this month. Babies grow so fast – cherish the moment you have with them. As for me – I like to capture tons of photos to look back on. Stay tune for more hauls and reviews. This blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!
