Sticky Bean's Milestone - Self Feed at 16 months

When it comes to her milestone development, Sticky Bean's just pretty average I reckon. She learnt to walk when she's close to 13 months.

And now at 16 months, she's learning to self-feed with a fork. Of course, she's not proficient yet so we still have to guide her and help her at times. This is when i found this product exceptionally useful!
The munchkin stay put suction bowl. This is a must have for us both at home or when we are eating out. Love how it suctions the bowl in place and makes it so much easier for Sticky Bean to try eating her snacks or in this instance, self feeding. 
It caught us by surprise when we decided to just pass her a fork and see what she will do. To our surprise, she knew what to do with the fork. Thanks to the observation skills that most babies/toddlers are born with.
Self feeding with the munchkin stay put suction bowl definitely makes things a lot easier. What else to discourage a toddler from self feeding from a bowl that is constantly moving and when he/she has difficulties getting the food?
We've got ours at $15 at one of the Baby Fairs. It comes in a pack of 3 bowls of different sizes but only the smallest one comes with a lid.
It can also be purchased in most departmental stores or from iherb



Our sticky bean sure is growing up fast. They are learning new things everyday just by observing the adults. This little cheeky girl even knows ''pretend-play'' now, she'd pretend to be eating when she's playing halfway, use whatever toy that she has and pretend it is a spoon with the 'mum mum mum'' sound effect.

Aww Sticky Bean, you simply melt Daddy's and Mummy's heart with your cheekiness. If only you'd learn to stop screaming for things and try to speak the words....

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
