[Celebration] — Halloween Party 2016

 g0190 g0191

These two photos were taken a few days before Halloween. Look at my two cute pumpkins – I love them so much!

g0192

This is the morning of Halloween where he wore his costume to school. It was his first Halloween at school and they had a dance in the morning. He never told me anything about it – I wondered how he enjoyed his first Halloween in school this year.

g0189 g0193

Another year – another Halloween party for the kiddos. I had this party organized three weeks in advance. Since my girlfriends’ just moved to their new places – my place was open for it to celebrate Halloween.

g0194

I decided to do a potluck kind of dinner instead of making everything. Just a lot easier for me & others. We had quite a lot of leftovers even with 6 kids, 3 babies, and 8 adults. Leftovers were perfect for next days’ lunch & dinner. Glad everyone took something home to eat!

g0195 g0196

 

Party started around 4:30PM – kids started there dinner around 5ish. We started getting ready to head out at 6:30pm – by the time we got out – it was 7pm. Well just imagine getting 9 kids ready! It was a chore!

We trick or treat around 8-10 houses. Not a lot of houses were giving out candies but we really go for the experience for the kids. We trick or treated about 45 minutes and headed back to my place.

g0197

Our first Halloween as Family of 4!

It was fun & exciting for the kids but hectic for the parents. Especially this year I have an 4 month old to take care of – I couldn’t spend too much time with my Munchkin#1. Overall the kids loved it! Till next year! Although a lot of work & cleaning up hosting a party but I wouldn’t want it any other way! I love hosting parties and seeing the kids have fun. How did you celebrate Halloween this year!? Comment below to share. Stay tune for more daily life updates & hauls – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for stopping by!

[Kids] — Halloween 2016 Costumes

g0181 g0182

What are your kids wearing this Halloween? I bought my kids costumes about two months before Halloween. Yes – this organizing Mama always plans early. I know if I buy it later – the choices is very limited. For my 3 month old – I purchased him the pumpkin onesie and his superman costume online. While I bought my 4.5 year old son his policeman costume at Winners HomeSense at $24.99 – quite reasonable price. Usually costumes can go up to $60-$70. I’m not willing to spend a fortune for a one time wear. It’s just not worth it in my opinion. So what are all your kids dressing up as this year? Comment below to share. Stay tune for more updates for our Halloween event this year – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Festive] — Valentine’s Day 2016

e0110e0112

Celebrated our 8th Valentine’s day together this year with the love of my life! With an almost four year old and a fetus that’s growing in my belly! What more can I ask for? I don’t give this man enough credit for all he does for our family – I’m so lucky to call him my husband! Cheers to many more years to come Hubby! I love you so much!

e0111  e0113

As always – cooking dinner on Valentine’s day at home has been a tradition of ours! Since my Hubby loves seafood – seafood dinner it was! I made; Mushroom & scallop cream of mushroom, Cheesy garlic lobsters, Honey garlic onion salmon, with spinach and rice. To top it off – some Valentine’s cupcakes that Munchkin loved.

Look at this handsome boy on Valentine’s day! Please no girlfriend for the next twenty years! Just kidding! Stay tune for more daily updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

[Company Review] — Aliexpress Wholesale • Positive Review

aliexpress-logo

One word: ADDICTIVE! Yes – if you ever decide to shop on this website – I wouldn’t advise you to because it’s ADDICTIVE! This makes it very dangerous too!

Okay all jokes on the side – I bought many things on this website and mostly everything is very inexpensive. I probably shopped on this site for over two years now. There’s a time I deleted the Aliexpress App to stop myself.

What I love about this website is that things you find on that website cannot be found where I’m living at. Does that make sense? Plus I love how they can sell things in a large quantity at an affordable pricing. For people looking to do business – this is a good website to start with. Like small businesses. They have everything on here from packaging items to household, car accessories and basically anything you can think of! Even SEX toys!

With so many pros – of course there’s cons. Most of these stores provide free shipping. Free shipping = it’ll take time to come. Up to 60 days. If you have patients you can wait – if not – you can pay for express. Usually I wait.

There were 3-4 incidents that I was scammed. There’s this seller that only shipped out one item when I purchased two different items. Than somehow there store was shut down – I couldn’t even file a complaint or get my money back. I would suggest you read reviews and ratings of shops first before purchasing that’s what I do now to protect myself.

Other than that – usually sellers are very nice. If they messed up your order – they would refund you. Or if your item came broken – they’ll refund you or send you it again.

Overall – my experience with this website is great – I made over 160 orders throughout the years with only a few bad eggs. Not that bad right? Would highly recommend anyone to use this website – just don’t get hook on to it like me! Thanks for stopping by – stay tune for more life stories and restaurant reviews – this blog is updated every day at 12PM Eastern Time!

Have a FANTASTIC day!!!

[Food] — Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar • Richmond Hill Review

d092

Celebrated a girlfriend’s birthday at Scaddabush Italian Kitchen & Bar a few weeks back and I’m surprise how delicious their food is! I’m not a huge fan of Italian food but this restaurant was amazing!

d093

The interior decoration of this restaurant is unique yet classy and a little romantic. Love the chandeliers! You can view the menu on their website HERE. They have other locations too at downtown Toronto and Mississauga for anyone’s that’s interested.

d094 d095

We shared an artichoke and spinach dip that came with four slices of bread. The bread and dip was delicious but we didn’t get enough bread so the server gave us more for free of charge. The second time we asked for more – she had to charge us extra. They should really serve enough bread – so we could finish the dip. Both of my girlfriends ordered pasta which they loved.

d096 d097

I opted for a sandwich since I had pasta the night before. It was a Chicken Avocado BLT sandwich. Well made and delicious! I ordered fries as my side at extra charge. The fries were delish!

Overall everything was delicious! For sure I’ll be returning to try their amazing pastas and meatballs! The service was on point too! Nothing really to complain about except bread for the dip. I would rate this restaurant a 9.5 out of 10. Highly recommend you to try this restaurants – you won’t disappoint!

[LifeStyle] — Family Time at Whittamore Farm 2015

c225

It’s the Fall season already?? Summer was way too short and I’m missing the longer daylight already! Fall is here and that means – we are ready for some Fall family activities and Halloween activities.

c226

We visited Whittamore Farm again. Last year we visited was near Halloween and it was on a weekend – meaning it was SUPER busy!! This year we visited the farm on a weekday – so there were barely any people. I kind of like that there weren’t as much people. The entrance fees on weekdays are cheaper at $8.00+HST per person.

c227

It was another mild cold day the day we went. I totally forgot to bring mitts! We stayed about two good hours for Munchkin to run around like a crazy monkey. He loves it!

c228

Last was the wagon ride! We all loved the wagon ride minus the freezing weather! It’s our families second time on the wagon together. Click here to read our first Whittamore Farm experience!

c229

Looking forward for next Fall to return again! Stay tune for more daily life events & updates – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[LifeStyle] — Blogging On Apple Iphone • Spellings & Grammars

01iiiiiiiiiiii

Picture credit: Google.com

My spelling or grammar isn’t perfect! I was re-reading some of my blog posts and boy do I have a lot of spelling/grammar mistakes. Well 95% of the posts is typed on my Iphone and during/while typing – I’m also multi-tasking as well. So you get the drift. My spelling and grammar isn’t perfect and it doesn’t have to be because it’s my blog.

I blog on my phone because of convenience and I can be doing other things as well. Call me the multi-tasking queen because that’s how I run my life. For example: When I’m cooking – I’m also washing or cleaning up the kitchen at the same time. So blogging is almost the same thing. Typing and yet having my 3 year old coming over to me demanding something every minute. Only moms can relate to this situation here eh!

Just a little update on my spellings & grammars. I’m not perfect and no one is. Stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for popping by!

Have a LOVELY day!!!

[Haul] — Dollarama • Kitchenware & bubbles & Tape

b137

Picked up some goodies this week at Dollarama – I love walking through all the aisles and seeing what’s new at Dollarama. I’ll let the picture do the talking for this post. Not much to explain.

b138 b139

Love these double sided tape! Definitely need to pick up more. The glitter tape was a no go. It’s not sticky enough.

b140 b141

Bought a box of bubbles for the Munchkin. These are great birthday favors too! It’s $2.00 for 9 bottles! Worth the price!

b142

Been looking for a pair of pink oven gloves but couldn’t find them – silver will do for now.

[Jayden] — 42 Month Life Update • Growing Up & Hair Cut

c140 c141

Another month – yet another update! He’s 42 month today! Yes the crazy mom still counts every month. Not sure when I’ll stop? Maybe never? Lol. Forty-two month is a special number – meaning he’s officially three and a half year old. Exactly in a year – he’ll be entering kindergarten too! My baby is entering school! I never thought this date will be coming so soon!! Well one year of time is soon to me. Some would say – you can enjoy some me time while he’s at school.

c142 c143

Which is perfect but I know I’ll enjoy the process of picking out his outfits, packing his school bags, and planning his breakfast, lunch, and after school meals! The joy of being a mommy right? Love every part of it! Enough with the school talk – even though I already planned the little things already.

c144 c145

What’s new this month? He’s speaking a lot more and putting a lot of words in sentences! Soon I’ll be getting “why this and why that” lol – the cute stage of talking.

c146 c147

He’s been imitating every cartoon he watches – which is kind of insane because he memorizes everything they do and say! Do other kids do this?

c148 c149

We are trying to minimize the time he uses the Ipad or Iphone these days. By putting on TV shows or practicing writing his numbers or coloring books. Lately he shows more interests in coloring and loves it.

c150 c151

Still a bit shy around people but last month he’s gotten better at it. The shy period is shorter. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not because if he’s not shy – he’s crazy.

c152 c153

Swimming classes ended already and we signed him up for the fall season. He loves and enjoys it a lot. Which I’m happy about – he’ll be continuing swimming throughout his life. Hopefully to get to the life guard stage too. Mommy asking for too much? Lol.

c154 c155

As for camp – camp ended too and he’ll be enrolled in something similar in the fall as well. I want him to continue these classes till he starts kindergarten – so he get used to interacting with other kids, arts and crafts, being independent, and just enjoying himself without parents being there. It’s a good program to start for him to just get used to full time school.

c156 c157

Okay this is a little weird to talk about but he loves staring at ladies… I know right! He would say bye to ladies but not the gentlemen’s! He would check out the ladies out too! OMG seriously too young for that! Such a perv! How am I supposed to control that? Lol.

c158

Loving the outdoors as well! Loves going to the park and the play room in our condo. He’s just one happy boy to be around with except at times he can be quite demanding! I think that’s all for the last month! This boy is just a joy to our life. He’s our joy and pride. Thanks for dropping by! Stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! 

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[Jayden] — Munchkin 41 Month Update • Swimming & Camp

c032 c033

He started his swimming and Saturday camp class end of June. So far – he’s doing well but the first few classes were a nightmare of tears. I’m glad he’s enjoying more of it now and listening to his teachers/instructors. These camps are amazing – it’s a great way to prep him up before kindergarten. It’s also a great two hours of Me Time to run errands. Doing groceries in peace is so peaceful without a kid! I’m going to check out if they still have these classes after summer.

c034 c035

He loves fire crackers! I thought he would be super scared of it but he ended up loving it since July 1st 2015 – Canada day – there were people shooting fireworks in front of our condo building. Then there was three days of PamAm fireworks.

c036 c037

c038

He is a MINION fan! Crazy enough – he acts like them too – which irritates me because these minions screams and throw things.

c039 c040

What else is new… I really can’t think of much now – so much has gone on last month. I feel like I’m out of my mind and out of this world. But no matter how hectic life is – I still got to provide a normal healthy life for this Munchkin.

c041 c042

That’s all for this update – stay tune for more updates – this blog is updated every single day at 12PM Eastern Time! 

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Food] — Raku Ramen Update

b36

I’ve done a review on this restaurant a year ago and thought I do a little update on it. The food quality remained the same – I’m still very much in love with their pork bone soup ramen. I still finish that big bowl of soup!

b37

For the price – I’m so not in live with because it has risen. From what I remember a year ago it was $8.00 and now its $10.50. I know it’s not a huge difference but it’s still a raise right?

b38

I’m glad the quality stayed the same and even with a price raise – I’ll definitely be coming back because their soup base is irresistible! Are you a fan of Raku? What are your thoughts? Stay tune for more restaurant reviews and adventures – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Life Story][Youtube] — My Vlogging Life Updates

a186

What happened to my every day vlogging? Don’t get me wrong I’m still vlogging just not on an everyday basis. I find that it’s boring and repetitive vlogging the same thing every day. Especially I’m home most of the time and doing mostly the same routines.

I enjoy capturing memories still – I’m still vlogging those special and growing up moments. Especially trip days, firsts, going outs and etc. Stay tune for more vlogs and blog posts – this blog is updated daily at 12PM Eastern Time! Thanks for dropping by & see you soon!

[Life][Celebration] — Carmen & Richard’s Wedding

a179

What a fun day! I started off my day at 9AM in the morning – breakfast and getting ready. Headed to church at 10AM to get all the refreshment food ready and set up. The planning and setting up for every party is so much fun for me. I don’t know why I love it so much. I got everything set up a little after 12 and headed straight to the ceremony.

a180

This is actually my first time planning for a party for 300 and I’m quite proud of it. The food was just right with a little leftover.

a181

Dinner was delicious followed by meaningful speeches. Night time was where I let loose and drank with my close friends. I seriously hadn’t drank this much since my bachelorette party back in June 2011! It felt good and free but of course I have my guilt. I feel like a mother shouldn’t be drunk and all that. But only once a blue moon is good. I’m thankful for a supportive and loving hubby!

a182

Overall a very fun night! Thanks for dropping by – stay tune for my daily life blogs – this blog are updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time!

[Life Story][Kids] — Eventful Summer Plans For Our Toddler

a185

This 2015 summer sure will be an eventful one for my little three years old or to be exact 40 months old! I signed him up for a two hour once a week summer camp where he can develop some independent time without mommy and daddy. Where he can play with other kids and enjoy some outdoor activities.

Also I signed him up with a 9 week swimming class program. This time around I will let him continue swimming all year round and let him level up. Usually during Parent and Tod swimming classes – parents are there to swim with him. Since he’s old enough this year – he’s on his own with the instructor! Another chance of being independent!

He’ll have lots of fun but yet learn lots of different skills. I’m glad I’ll be having two hours off every week while he’s at summer camp! Do you keep your kids busy during the whole summer or just the summer? Comment below to share! Stay tune for more adventures and life stories – this blog is updated regularly at 12PM Eastern Time sharp every day!

[Travels] — Grand Bahia Principe El Portillo, Samana • Day 3 | Sand Castle – Gourmet Restaurant

b03

I’m on day three already? Almost half our summer vacation is gone already but I know these memories will forever be with us because I did blog and vlog our entire trip for memory sake. Started day three off at 8 in the morning woken up by the one and only Munchkin. We all had a great and long sleep.

Headed to breakfast at 10:00AM – I try my very best to eat very healthy for my first meal – so sticking to yogurt and black coffee every morning is the way to go. When I have greasy food – I usually don’t feel well during the day.

b05

Than the usual: kid’s water park, pool, lunch, nap, beach, and back to kid’s water park. We visited a pool we never did. It’s near the water park with barely anyone there which we love. It felt a little private and peaceful. They also had a bar and bartender there too. We stayed there for half an hour than headed to lunch. By now – we have a routine.

b04

Our very first family sand castle ever! I think it’s also my very first sand castle too!

b06

Going to go straight to dinner – we have a reservation at the Gourmet Restaurant at 7:30PM – this restaurant is recommended for men to wear long pants. It was highlighted on our reservation paper. We started off with a welcome champagne, seafood salad appetizer, soup, Tuna Tartar & crab pie appetizer, and our main course was Rib Eye, and Squid stuffed with Hake & Lobster. Ended our dinner with Volcano Ice-cream and Strawberry Pastry Puff.

My thoughts on dinner? Everything was amazingly put together. My fave was definitely the Tuna Tartar! It was DELICIOUS! Since we are Privilege Club Members – we get to main unlimited reservations to any a la carte restaurants – this is one we will definitely be visiting again with no doubt.

I ordered the Rib Eye as my main course and it was juicy – a little tough on some parts but overall very good. Dessert I didn’t care for since I’m not a dessert person. Dinner overall was amazing and I would give it a 9/10. Service was on point – staff made us feel very welcomed.

That’s all for day 3 – we ended day 3 with our Munchkins’ talented singing at the lobby – check out my vlog to watch! Stay tune for day 4! I love blogging my experiences down because sometimes I just can’t capture everything on the vlog PLUS I’m not a very good speaker either. Hope you enjoy reading about our trip! Stay tune for the rest of our travel updates HERE!

Have an AMAZING day!!!
