New year, new wardrobe

Welcoming the year of the rooster, most of us also take the opportunity to spring clean our homes, the kid's wardrobes.

Staying true to bringing in quality, unique designs in comfortable material for your kids, we launched many new brands including Sea Apple, a home grown brand carrying organic cotton and designs for the festive season, Kate Quinn, a renowned US brand for their range of refreshing prints and organic cotton material, and Little XO Kings, a street wear brand from the US. 

With increasing demand for twinning amongst siblings, we have put together a few looks for you.

For this look, we went for pastel shades for both Aiden and Ava. Ava is dressed in Sea Apple modern cheongsam with our new pompom hair clip, while Aiden is dressed in a Blue Gradient Shirt and jogger pants. 

For this look, we have both Aiden and Ava dressed in Little XO Kings newly launched camouflage top and dress. More designs available here.

Here are some looks from Sea Apple, with accessories we curated for you.

Hello 2017!

The Year of the Rooster arrived so soon in January, we went right from 'Jingle bells jingle bells' to 'Gongxi gongxi gongxi ni'. In fact, Ava was still belting out christmas carols, and getting teased by Aiden.

This will be the final year Aiden and Ava attends the same preschool, with Aiden in Primary One next year. I strive to spend more quality time with each of them, coaching each of them and being stricter when disciplining them.

We began spring cleaning and preparations for the lunar new year, less than a month after the christmas celebrations and countdown to the new year 2017. We roped in the kids to clean the house and they really surprise me. Aiden could help with vacuuming the floor, and tidying his room, light mopping of the floor and folding the laundry. I found out how meticulous Ava was, when she arranged the drinks in the refrigerator. She was really pleased with her accomplishment and requested for more tasks to do. Hope this is a good start to regular housekeeping with the two of them.

For their CNY celebration in school, the dress code was oriental. Spoilt for choice this year as we introduced a few new brands including Sea Apple, Pocket Pig Diary and Glitter Glam in our stores, we picked out this Clear River Shirt for Aiden, a mandarin collar short sleeved shirt with cute chinese knots as buttons. Ava picked out a red cheongsam, in very comfortable cotton material.

Love how these outfits can be worn for other occasions, and with the material great for our weather, lesser complaints and more cooperative kids.

We have had positive feedback on the lightweight material of these outfits, and have a wider variety available in stores. Looking forward to welcome you to our stores, as we reopen on Mon 30 Jan 2017.

The locals were very friendly too!

Day in a life of.... mine

Rise and Shine

We are not early sleepers, neither are the kids which we will adjust next year before Aiden starts primary school. Daddy Darren wakes up and get ready for work by 8am while we are still in bed. He wakes us up with his goodbye kisses while we continue snoozing in our beds.

Ava wakes up twice in the night, and she sometimes finds her place in our bed in the wee hours. 

I will prepare their milk and have their uniforms ready for them to change into after they wash up.

Getting out of the House

Aiden is pretty independent at 5 year old. He is able to get ready for school all by himself, from drinking his milk, to rinsing his milk bottle, brushing his teeth and changing into this uniform.

We will have a quick snack for breakfast or pick something to eat along the way to school. On some days if I leave for meetings right after dropping Aiden and Ava in school, they will read or play with their toys while waiting for me to get ready.

Eventful journey to School

We often have to wait for Ava who insists on putting on her shoes independently. I wonder what’s with water puddles that the both of them enjoys jumping into, every single one on our way to school. And I hate it when they put on clean and new shoes.

We walk five minutes which easily drags to fifteen minutes to the bus stop, and another five minutes from the bus stop to school. We stop along the way to look closely at insects, plants and flowers.

When I am not in a rush to get to a meeting, we take our time exploring on the way to school. We talk about road safety and walk hand in hand to school.

Drop off at school is an easy affair, no tears. Aiden will be the more emotional one, asking if he can be the first to go home, every single day. 

On some days, we will have a photo session with the kids for the products we carry in PriviKids. This will take up the whole morning, ending with breakfast before I drop them off to school.

These days, a lot of coaxing is required.

Keeping fit

I try to exercise before I start my day. A run at the reservoir, or in the gym and some workouts at home. I take about an hour and a half and hope to keep this up!

On days I fetch the kids home earlier, we go for a swim and work out while having some water fun.

Work from Home

On days I work from home, I will review the past week performance, and work on our online store, and social media feeds.

Reviewing of new brands and ordering products for the stores are also done during the day.

Out in the Stores

I visit the stores most days, and will be focusing on merchandising displays, interaction with customers and bonding with our retail team.

Unwinding for the Day

I get home around 10pm. The kids naturally also go to bed later. We decide on an activity for the night which can be art and craft, reading, before we unwind and let them have their milk before bed time.

I will give them light massages which will lull them into a sleepy state.

Finally I get to shower and change for bedtime. With a warm beverage, I spend some time on the laptop, going through reports for the day and social media.

Bonding with the Husband

A quick catch up on our day, and plans for the week ahead. We are usually exhausted by the time the kids are in bed.

We have regular lunch dates now to spend more quality time together, without having to sacrifice time with the kids when we both get together with them. 

This post is part of a blog train hosted by Justina Tay from Mum in the Making, where many more mummies shared about a Day in a Life. It's just inspiring to read about how fellow mothers, whether is it full time working or stay at home or part time or work from home, take on their days.

Next up on the blog train is Diana. Diana is a mama of 4 kids age 1 to 9. She loves to paint, sew and fuss over her brood. In between working as a digital marketer and nagging at her kids, she blogs about her mothering journey and her passion for arts and crafts on

The Yangs go to Dusseldorf 2016 (Video)

After Munich, Manchester and London, Dusseldorf was the last stop before we flew back to Singapore. It's our first time there so we did not venture out, although friends did recommend hopping over to nearby Cologne.

The weather was pretty warm compared to the first 8 days of our trip, so we ended up shopping and looking for water and ice cream more often than sightseeing! Still, we found Dusseldorf to be compact but beautiful. Perfect for a 2-day walkabout.

Till next time!

The Yangs go to Manchester and London 2016 (Video)

Our holiday without the kids in Germany and UK in August 2016.

After Munich, Manchester and London were the second and third stops before we ended in Dusseldorf. It's our second time in London so we only visited places that we missed years ago, except shopping. It's always a good time to shop, especially when the Pound took a pounding (pun intended) after the Brexit vote.

The highlight of the UK leg must be the live game that we watched between Manchester United and Southampton at Old Trafford. It was United's first home game and Pogba made his debut. The atmosphere was fantastic, much better than the Real Madrid game that I watched at the Bernabeu some years ago.

Unfortunately, it was raining so much in Manchester we could not do much sightseeing. Mummy Cher certainly didn't mind though because that meant we went shopping instead.
