Avent Combined Steamer cum Blender and Baby Ashlene's Food / Puree milestone

Usually i'd use our Avent Philips Combined 2 in 1 steamer cum blender to prepare puree for her and freeze the rest so she'll be eating the same puree for about a week.

Absolutely love this Avent Philips Combined 2 in 1 steamer cum blender. It makes preparing puree for her a breeze, depending on the type of food, everything can be done in less than 30 minutes including washing.
It's so easy to use and washing is a breeze as well.

and this is how it works, after steaming the food, simply flip the jar over and you are ready to blend!

It also comes with a weaning food guide, recipe as well as recommended steaming time for a variety of food.

So here's her puree milestone.
I first started out with apple puree (steamed)..argh this was how much she hated it. Guess she's definitely not enjoying the sour after taste.

 super reluctant expression

 on first taste

and then she discovered the sour after taste

subsequently, pursing her lips and refusing to open them

Avocado puree was next for her. it's so easy to make considering that there's no need to steam them. Avocado puree goes very well with milk as well, texture is so smooth just like a smoothie and she loves them.

alrightey from her expression she may not look like she love them but at least she's eating and opening her mouth for more. Of course there are also days which she doesn't feel like eating much

Made pumpkin puree for her next and she seems to like them too

She loves pear puree as well. After steaming it's so much sweeter than apple

And then i decided to give her banana puree, i googled online to find if it's safe to freeze them and it seemed ok for freezing banana puree.
On the first day where she tried the fresh banana puree, she seems to enjoy it.
The next evening when i tried giving her the thawed banana puree, for some reasons she just doesn't like them as much though it tasted the same to me.
And worse of all, she started having diarrhea it was so bad we were changing her diapers every 1hour the whole night.

It's been 3 days and she's still having diarrhea though it wasn't as bad compared to the first night she'd still poo like 4-5 times a day and the poo is relatively mushy, though not super watery but definitely not the usual nice little sausage looking like poo she's used to having.

Now i'm suspecting it may not be the banana puree after all. trying to do keep her off her brown rice cereal to see if it could be the cause as well, since i just started her on the brown rice cereal too.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
