[Celebration] — Thanksgiving Celebration With Relatives



Celebrated Thanksgiving 2017 at our place this year. We had all our relatives over for a festive dinner. I made most of the dishes and we had wine to celebrate.


A group selfie for memories is so needed. I was in a bun and in a mess that day. Stayed in the kitchen for three hours cooking up this meal. But I love what I do – so I have no complaints. I love seeing people eat and enjoy the food I make.

Apple pie to end the night off. I didnt make this – bought from Costco. It was a huge pie! A fun Thanksgiving to be captured in my memory book.

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Grandpa Luk’s 90th Birthday Dinner


Happy 90th birthday to Grandpa Luk! We celebrated his birthday two months early since his son & daughter-in-law came to visit early October for two weeks. Being 90 is a huge milestone & I can never imagine myself getting this old!


We had a room all to ourselves – so the kids can just run around and play with their cousins. It was a nice sit down dinner with 11-12 course meal.


It was a nice & fancy night. Cannot wait to celebrate many more birthdays together! Always a nice time to get together with everyone.

Have an AMAZING day!!!

[Celebration] — Oliver’s 4th Birthday Party

Happy Birthday Oliver! What an amazing celebration it was! We finally get to meet some of munchkin#1’s school friends. I never knew how they look like – now I can put a face to their names.

Oliver celebrated his birthday at an indoor playground with a Superhero theme. The kids had a lot of fun plus snacked on their favorite snacks.

It was nice meeting other parents at the party too which I never got the chance to during the school year.

Have a FABULOUS day!!!

[Celebration] — Baby Nicholas’s 1 Month Birthday Celebration

Congrats to my girlfriend and her first baby boy’s arrival. We celebrated baby Nicholas’s 1 month end of September. He’s such a cutie & I miss holding babies this light! Reminds me of my two boys! It sure did gave me baby fever once again!

The celebration was held at Shangri La that night. Boys kept busy with some new friends at the next table. Its so easy for them to make new friends. Munchkin#2 was running everywhere and getting so much attention. This kid is too active!

Can’t wait to chill with baby Nicholas soon & hold him for hours! Babies grow up so fast! My advice to new parents is soak it all in while they are still babies because they grow up too fast!

Have an AWESOME day!!!

[Celebration] — Cheryl’s Birthday & Mommy’s Day Out

Hurray to our first mom day out! Yes we all finally left the kids at home with the Hubbys’! Lol when we each have two kids each – It’s kind of hard sometimes. We spent two hours at the Spa and it was amazing! Cannot complain with one hour nonstop chatting!

Next stop was Joey’s for drinks and dinner. We took this time to celebrate Cheryls’ birthday since it was only a few days away.

Food at Joey’s is always on point! We somehow sat for over theee hours and talked nonstop. Such good times! We are for sure doing this every month! Sometimes its hard leaving kids and the Hubby at home but before I do so – I make sure meals are prepared and home is cleaned. Some times away from the kids is a way to keep us full time mommy sane!

Happy birthday girlfriend! Can’t wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you! Xoxo
 
Have an BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Celebration] — Munchkin #2’s Catholic Baptism

Munchkin#2’s baptism was a bit later than I thought. The thing being is that he was born late June & I didnt want him to be baptised in the cold winter. When the summer came – I didnt know we needed to wait two months after registration. But all in all – he got baptised and that’s what’s important. Having God watch over him is the greatest blessing.

Recently we’ve returned back to a regular church schedule – my heart feels so grateful and blessed to be back. I do want my children to be raised in a Catholic community. I want them to learn the life lessons the bible has. I’ve always wanted this before having kids. I want myself to understand the bible more. I want my family to be faithful Catholics.

Might be challenging at times bringing two kids but I am thankful that there’s bible classes for kids where Munchkin#1 can learn with other kids.

I have to say – sending him to Catholic school has been the best circumstances. He knows the prayers better than I do. Hahaha. Sometimes I have to learn the prayers off from him. How embrassing is that right?

As time goes on – I would like my boys to be more involved in the church community. Growing up in church and serving the church is one of my wishes.

Have a BLISSFUL day!!!

[LifeStyle] — Life Update ;; Positive & Happy

 

Its October 2017 already! That means the year is ending in about two months! We are so grateful for the life we have. We’ve met a lot of new friends this year, kept in touch with old friends & connected again with some friends in our past.

One thing that has become a habit of mine is seeing the girlfriends more each week. Some weeks are three times a week when time permits. Since Munchkin#2 is more independent now – I’m not too worried leaving him home with Hubby. Besides when I am not home – both my boys behaved better. They like to either give me a hard time or bully me. But at the end of the day – they both still need mommy. I love that feeling of being needed! The importance of motherhood? Going out more and having adult conversation is so important. It’s like refreshment for me. Lunches, dinners, or pamper time at the spa is always a good time with the girlfriends. I am so blessed and fortunate for their friendships. Authentic friendship is hard to come by. I just like the company of honest and genuine people. Not too much to ask for in friendships right? At this point in life – there’s really no negative people or things going on – I am truly bless with that! I delete negative – if I feel negative. Or shall I say – I am allergic to negative? Spending time with girlfriends is awesome and I’ve taken a new interest in drinking wine! Girlfriends + catch ups + food + wine = a goooooood time!

Anyways – Halloween is coming & I’ve kept busy preparing for this. Decorating my home, loot bags for the kids at school, loot bags for friends’ kids, and making party plans. Halloween is usually all about the kids while the parents organize the parties & bring them out for trick or treating. One thing I do wish is that Halloween can be on a Saturday every year. Will make the parents life so much easier.

I’m already shopping for Christmas since last month to avoid any unnecessary stress from crowded malls. I do it early every year.

What’s new? Just mainly focusing on life. Staying positive and happy always because life is too short for any unnecessary nonsense.

Both my boys are happy and healthy. A bit too spoiled by everyone around us & I hope one day they know that and appreciate everything they have. Unconditional love and care they get from our families and friends is a blessing.

As for my Stepmom’s ALS situation – I pray for her every day that there will be a cure as soon as possible. There has to be a cure soon because there’s an increase of people that’s getting ALS. They need to have a cure. Her living situation is better & is being cared for properly. I am so grateful for that – gives me less worries.

Hubby is doing great. He’s getting more opportunities to climb up the ladder in his field. He loves what he does and enjoys it. I’m happy for him. Although I prefer he works at home half the time but his agreement is that he will in the future.

Can’t believe 2018 is coming! What an awesome 2017 has it been. Can’t wait to dress up my home with Christmas decorations. I love to feel like a Winter Wonderland at my place. Love having people over to celebrate. I just love everything about Christmas!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Costco Large Haul

Sharing a large Costco haul today.

This is my second time re-purchasing Kirkland Keurig breakfast blend k-cups. I love how long a box of these lasts me – with 100 cup – it will last me up to 3 months!

I saw this big bin of coleslaw when I walked by the cold fridge – decided to give it a try. Oh boy – those were super sour! It was about $8.00 for a huge bin of coleslaw – make sure you have a few dinner parties – otherwise you would never finish it. I won’t be repurchasing this because it’s too sour for my family.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

[Review] — Saje Konjac Kare Yam Sponge

I have amazing girlfriends! A few weeks ago my girlfriend was visiting and brought me this. She loves it and would love that I can try it too.

It’s my first Saje product – I’ve heard of this shop before and thought they only sold fragrant oils for your home. When my girlfriend opened the package and showed me it. It wasn’t anything special – it looked like a typical sponge. I liked how it came with a container. She told me to wet the sponge and clean my face with it. I’m like cool – I usually only clean my face with my hand. I did as I was told.

It was a little weird at first because I was always reminded that any cleansing product should have foams in it. This sponge didn’t. So I read the instruction again to see if I should put some cleansing product in it. It says not to. So I only cleansed my face with the sponge. It felt like a normal sponge with nothing on it.

My face did feel smoother though. The next day my face was glowing and I was shocked. How can this sponge that looks like it has no foam or anything on it – make me glow? Interesting right? I love it ever since my first use.

It says it has 100 uses on it and the price is $9.98 plus tax. Very inexpensive. I use it every night during my bath time. A very very unique product and I’ll for sure be stocking this up. I’ve heard that these sponges sell out fast too! This will be one of my must have skincare products in my routine for sure! Stay tune more daily hauls & reviews!

Have a GRATEFUL day!!!

[Haul] — Sephora & Asian Beauty Skin Care Haul

Been awhile since I blog about beauty! I re-purchased a few makeup products from Sephora when mines ran out. I can’t live without the Kat Von D liquid eyeliner & concealer! It is definitely a must have! I returned the Tarte SPF30 sunscreen – since my girlfriend introduced me to a Japanese one.

Onto my second part of the haul which is the photo on the right. My girlfriend introduced me to all of those skin care & CC Cream. Biore UV sunscreen is a MUST have! I did a first impression review on it already – go back a few pages of my blog to check that one out! Other than that – I had the pleasure to try 3 different products. I feel so blessed to have girlfriends introducing me to new beauty products!

Have a TERRIFIC day!!!
