Délifrance - Thank You, Mum!

Media Invite

Thanks to Délifrance, we were invited to celebrate Mother’s Day early. About 5 Celebrity Daddy or Daddy Bloggers were invited to bring along our children for a chance to interact and to create a Mother’s Day cake from clay.

One of the celebrity Daddy is Aide Iskandar, this is probably the first time I see him so up close and personal. He seems to be a nice guy. A national hero!


Before the actual program starts, we were treated to some of the signature mini sandwiches and tarts.




After some nice food, the kids were ready for the clay-making session. Instructions sheets were given out according to the design they chose.


The girls look so cute in their chef caps.

Me? I was in-charge of photo-taking and occasionally chip in to help the girls. I did my part for Mother’s Day too =)

Joey did the flowers all by herself and wrote a very nice note for Kless.

Jigsaw Puzzle

One thing Joey had inherited from me is this love for puzzles. Since young she has been fixing lots of different jigsaw puzzles. So on her 7th birthday when she requested for a Princess puzzle, I rushed over to the store and bought a 300 piece puzzle for her. You can sense the excitement from the Daddy as well right? =)



Have to say jigsaw puzzle is not a cheap activity. The puzzle and frame set me back about $80. But I choose not to put a price on precious bonding time with my children.


Setting out the frame pieces is the first and most important step in any jigsaw puzzle solving process.

Once that is done, we are ready to start.


Seriously, I am totally in love with the immersed look when either Joey or Jayne has when they are engrossed in some activities.




In no time, the frame is done! With it, nothing much can go wrong now, as long as we have all the pieces, we will eventually finish the puzzle.


Along the way, I got the chance to teach Joey the importance of concentration as she tends to move from one “princess” character to another without completing it first. It will be frustrating for her when she can’t seems to be heading anywhere.


When my mother is back, she contributed too.


And when Jayne woke up from her nap, we have the entire family completing the final part of the 300 piece jigsaw puzzle.


In about 2 hours, the puzzle was completed! What a feat! Initially we thought we won’t finish in a day. The power of family unity!


Add on the white wooden frame, Joey’s first big jigsaw puzzle is done.



Maybe we can try a 500 piece puzzle in future!

Play-Doh Plus - Sweet Shoppe Frosting Fun Bakery

Product Review


Play-Doh is not a new product for parents and kids. This time the iconic brand introduces a new compound which promises to take creative detailing to a whole new level. Play-Doh Plus, a soft, fluffy and smoother texture, it allows the creator to create an even more realistic masterpiece.

Thanks to Hasbro Singapore, we have the chance to put our hands on these new release. Play-Doh has and will always one of the girls’ favourite playset.

I told Jayne she can only play after taking her nap. The first thing she looked for after her nap was the playset, so pardon for the ‘just-woken-up’ look.


It took the experienced girls less than 5mins to open up the box and assemble everything. I didn’t even have the chance to take a photo of the unassembled playset pieces. They are Pro!



Introducing the star of the playset, the Play-Doh.


The pink and yellow are the Play-Doh Plus. It is indeed much softer and fluffier than the usual ones. Even Joey can state the difference when handling the different play-doh. In her own words, “This play-doh is easier to play with, it is not so sticky and easier to create the mould.”


The end products..


Tiny gingerbread man, flowers, teddy bear, heart-shaped cakes..


I did that yellow house shape thingy and the pink colour doughnut. Trying not to sound too girlish, but I was quite surprised I actually had fun making the pretend ‘cakes’.


Press it down, use some creativity and voila! You have a super cute cupcake with seashell icing. Done by both Joey and Jayne.

Personally, I am most impressed by the Frosting Station. You can choose from the 4 different moulds and create the icing effect.


Though the table is now a mess, but to see the happy faces of the 2 girls, I know the product has served it’s purpose.
