CRAFTY | DIY Barbie Handbag

The Daughter has started playing with Barbies and as can be expected, has been asking for clothes and accessories for her dolls.  Unfortunately, these things cost too much and I'm not really too gung-ho on spending too much for them.  Heck!  A set can cost as much as the Daughter's own shirt!

So what's a mom do?  DIY, of course!

SG | Daiso Haul (June 2017)!

As evidenced by previous posts, I love shopping in Daiso!  S$2 (approx Php68), they offer great savings and can definitely help stretch your dollar.  And considering how expensive it is in Singapore, every time the shopping bug bites me, an hour at Daiso is all the remedy I need.  😃

So in this post,  I want to showcase my Daiso haul!

SG | oBike

I've said it once and I'll say it again.  Singapore has a great public transport system.  You don't really need to have a car here.  There's bus lines and MRT stations and taxis galore!  You're all set.

Heck, nowadays, you can even bike (even without physically owning one)!

Japanese businesses thrive here in Singapore.  Shops/fashion, food -- they are all well-received.  So when CoCo ICHIBANYA came to these shores, it was no surprise they'd be packed!

SG | Monster Curry

I love curry!  You see, like most Filipinos, my curry exposure (then) was limited to a milder local version my dad used to cook back home.  It was usually with chicken, loaded with potatoes and carrots, and had runny, less spicy curry sauce.

Another one was the Japanese kind.  Sweet, thick demi-glace sauce that came in a convenient pack that coats each delicious meat and morsel to perfection.  These 2 types where what I grew up eating.

But ever since moving to Singapore and being introduced to the real, authentic kind from India by my office mates, my palette has since changed.  I eventually got used to the spiciness and have since enjoyed its rich, bold flavor.  I've come to crave it so much, that I once ate a curry dish 5x a week for month!  (I swear I would never find a cheap an affordable Indian restaurant back home; but here in Singapore, it's in almost every hawker centre!  I'm so lovin' it!!!)

But the Little Girl is (still) not a fan of spicy curry.  So to slowly introduce her to it, we brought her to try the Japanese kind at Monster Curry.

FAB FIND: Lite Brix

Like a lot of kiddoes, the Little Girl loves playing with Legos.  And although, she is isn't a Master Builder, she does so enjoy building and playing with those Disney Princess and Lego Friends sets (such an evil marketing ploy!!!).

We have since stopped adding on to her collection and vowed never to buy her another one (Lego or anything remotely similar again).  But when we stumbled upon this Lite Brix set, we just couldn't resist.

SG | Chic-a-boo Fried Chicken

When you have a kid, fried chicken is always a surefire hit, albeit a bit on the unhealthy side.  Not something a good parent will always serve, but when out and about and wanting a fuss-free meal with the kiddo, we go fried fowl.

And so it was after the Little Girl's (a.k.a The Little One) gym class, we decided on getting a piece at Chic-a-boo Fried Chicken.
