Me: How did you find the Lion Dance?
小小宝贝: The lions are naughty naughty!
Me: 🤔 Why?!
小小宝贝: Because after they ate the oranges, they spit their food out! Cannot spit food out! (Disapproving look) AND they threw rubbish all over the floor! Naughty naughty!!
There’s hope for the next generation! Keep Singapore litter free!! 😆

Look what I’ve found underneath my pillow!
Given to me by my Sweet Valentine! But I can’t open it til 14th Feb. 😂😂😂
When I asked her about it, she coyly whispered, “Mommy, it’s a SECRET!”
Little things like these brighten up my days.
My lovely 宝贝, if you happen to read this one fine day, I just want to tell you, “I love you lots and lots!!” 😘😘😘

The children have been clamouring for home made ice cream. I haven’t had time to make some for them. I need to make more desserts for bargaining chips!! 😜
I had watermelon and milk kefir in my refrigerator and a set of brand new popsicle mould which I bought from Daiso (for only $2!! I love Daiso!!). My first popsicles in the making! 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
I blended the watermelon and mixed in the milk kefir. Voila! Watermelon smoothie! Poured the mixture into the popsicle moulds and popped them into the freezer.
The mixture eventually separated into 2 layers. 😅 BUT my easy-going children loved them! Why? They are cold and they had 2 colours. 😂😂😂 Anything cold goes with them.
I need to come up with more kefir popsicle recipes that don’t separate into layers though. Keep your eyes on my posts! 😊
More kefir recipes

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.
One of the nursery rhymes I learnt during my childhood days. I have always wondered, what were “curds and whey”. Now I know! Hey! I make that everyday from my milk kefir! They separate in curds and whey after fermentation and both are extremely nutritious. So Little Miss Muffet is a healthy little girl! Wahahaha!
In my last milk kefir post, I posted that my kefir grains were starved to death… Sigh… As I had no grains, what I did, was to “recycle” the curds. After fermentation, I would take a big scoop, put the curds into my glass container, feed it with milk, then ferment them again. With the curds, I was able to continue making more kefir.
Well, that’s because there is still live culture present in the curds. The live culture continues to stay alive and cultivate the milk. Theoretically speaking, this can go on and on and on. However, as they are microscopic and can’t be seen by the naked eye, the only way to test the amount of culture in the curds is by lab testing. If the bacteria die off, it will stop cultivating. The safer way is to still obtain the kefir grains for cultivating the bacteria.
So, I used curds to culture my kefir for quite a while, til Marcelly came to my rescue! By giving me more grains!! Thanks babe!!
It’s just a useful tip for you. If you are able to get live cultured curds, you can technically make curds for quite a while, even without grains. BUT, grains are the best!! Feed them often, keep them happy and they will keep US healthy!!

小小宝贝 has been in the Christmas mood for the last few months. I’ve been having live carolling in the house. BUT he has a quirky talent of changing the lyrics to suit himself. 😅
You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
He sees you when you’re pee-peeing
He knows when you are awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake
Me : Eh it doesn’t sound very right. Can you sing the part “he sees you when you’re…” again??
小小宝贝 : 🎵He sees you when you’re PEE-PEEING🎵
Me : pee-peeing!? Isn’t it sleeping?!
小小宝贝 : No. Pee-peeing. Cannot dirty the toilet! Must pee into the toilet bowl! (Indignantly) Not sleeping!!!
Me : ok ok. It does make sense.
小小宝贝 continued his carolling, very smugly.

Discussion after the movie,
Me : I think you should quit your job.
Hub : What does it have to do with the movie?!
Me : Of course!! Look at what happened to Kylo Ren.
Hub : ??!!
Me : His parents were too busy fighting the war. They had no time to take care of him so they sent him off to train with his uncle, Luke. He said, that Hans was never there for him. That’s why he turned to the dark side. Tsk! So unfilial. Even hoot his lao peh. Do you want that to happen to you?
Next time your son will turn to the dark side, become chow ah beng, sniff glue, take drugs then hoot you. Because you work, work, work and are never home for him. You want that to happen to you arh??
