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

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!

8 Day 7 Night Kaohsiung Kids Friendly Iitnerary (Taiwan)

Finally, we embarked on an exploration trip to the Southern part of Taiwan. Having heard so much about E-Da World in Kaohsiung, we decided to take a direct flight just to explore Kaohsiung. Initially, we'd wanted to do a Kaohsiung-Tainan trip but decided to skip Tainan this time around and did a Kaohsiung-Nantou trip instead. We had so much fun and would highly recommend a visit to Kaohsiung to any families travelling with kids. In fact, we find Kaohsiung a lot more child-friendly than Taipei. It is also less crowded so it makes it less claustrophobic taking public transport in Kaohsiung as opposed to Taipei. The people there are also a lot friendlier and helpful. This time around, my mum joined us as well and Sticky Bean was ecstatic as she gets to spend quality time with her Popo.
