Review: Wellements Baby Move (Constipation)

I believe constipation in a baby is one of the worst nightmare of mummies. What follows can be worse when the baby starts to produce hard stools that cause bleeding. My first bad experience happened when we brought Ashley on a holiday when she was 12 months old. As Ashley started teething at a later stage than most other kids, there were limited types of food that we can feed her at that stage. The real challenge came when fruits and vegetables that can be easily be chewed and swallowed with just gums are not readily accessible when one is overseas. Hence, that was the first time we had Ashley not poo for 2-3 days and when she does, the stools became so hard that she always cries when she tries to get them out of her system.

Therefore, this prompted me to find a solution for this problem even if this may not be a recurrent event. After reading on mummy forums and talking to other mummies, prune juice appeared to be an easy option to solve the constipation issue as it is liquid and can be easily consumed by Ashley.

Review: Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Trike

Ashley in her Trike!This post should have been put up long ago but as usual, laziness and procrastination sets in and I sat on it for a long, long time.

We purchased Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Trike for Ashley months back after seeing several kids around the neighbourhood ride on it. As to every other purchases we made, this is definitely not one of impulse buy. We went to retail shops, baby fairs and as usual, found it hard to purchase it there and then given the retail price and the possibility of Ashley’s dislike of the tricycle. After looking around for several months, we decided on Radio Flyer out of the many brands of tricycle upon reviewing and comparing the specifications with other commonly known brands.

Ashley’s 2nd Birthday Celebration with Sesame Street-themed Cakes by ButterFingers

This year we decided on a small-scale celebration of Ashley’s 2nd birthday. What first came to my mind was that I wanted Ashley to have a birthday cake that features her favourite character, ELMO. Searching through dozens of images of birthday cakes with Elmo designs was overwhelming and fun at the same time. Luckily for me, Rachel, our long time friend from our JC years have her home-based business, ButterFingers wherein she bakes beautiful cakes and cupcakes for special occasions. With her advice and suggestions, we finally decided on a cake design featuring Elmo on a garden themed setting. Initially, I was considering incorporating both of Ashley’s favourite TV characters, Elmo and Barney on the same cake. However, upon seeing a photo Rachel sent me, I decided against it and told myself, I needed the standing rainbow with Elmo (Ashley would love it given that she is recently into the Youtube video clip, Elmo in the Sky)! And I am glad I did coz it turned out fabulous as shown in  the photos below (photo credits to ButterFingers).

Review: UnoTelly Premium – Beyond the borders

I have heard so much about UnoTelly since the days of Brazil World Cup 2014 but haven’t had the time to try it. Being a fan of Pandora and Spotify, I had to logon manually to a VPN service everytime  before I could connect to Pandora due to geographical restriction. The sites would block my Singapore IP address due to copyright-related issues. Finally, I managed to find some time looking into the services provided by UnoTelly during this long weekend.

UnoTelly Premium Trial Signup

 

It is really great to know that UnoTelly is actually providing a free 8-days trial of its UnoTelly Premium plan. I believe that it serves as a confidence-booster to customers-to-be, and also reflects the confidence of UnoTelly in their services. What’s more? UnoTelly provdes 100% moneyback guarantee and there is no contract involved. When you think that you do not need the service anymore, you could simply terminate the subscription and be refunded on the unused credit.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 WiFi (SM-T700)

I have been hunting around the market for a suitable tablet to replace my ageing ASUS Transformer TF201. Initially, I was quite drawn to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro. But after see news leakage on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, I decided to hold my purchase and wait for its release. There is a steep discount going on for the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro now. On paper, it seemed that this tablet would the one that I have been waiting for. Finally, when the Samsung Galaxy Tab S was released in Singapore on 12 July 2014, I decided to drop by the stores to check out ASAP since I just arrived back from my enjoyable Adelaide trip with Annabelle & Ashley. Stay tuned for that post soon!

Samsung Galaxy Tab S

My first impression.. woah! I was totally blown off by the colours produced by the Super AMOLED screen. Next, I was scanning at the thickness of this tablet versus the ones displayed beside in the showroom. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S was indeed slimmer even when comparing to the already very slim iPad Mini. It was a mere 6.6mm thick! I was pretty much torn between selecting the Samsung Galaxy Tab S and the iPad Mini Retina before looking at the actual product. Now, the decision is simple. I have decided to go for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S!
