Fireman Sam themed cake on Saturday. The figurine was not a challenge, but I made 3 of them 😂 (Swipe to see!) 1st, I made it in a bad mood and the internal structure was bad, so it sorta cracked and separated themselves 😂 2nd, I made the exact Fireman Sam face but I didn't like it. And issue of copyrights kept popping in my mind lol. 3rd was the actual one. I kinda love this chubby fireman, though the Husband wasn't too impressed 😂 #fondantart #fondantfigure #firemansam #firemansamcake #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #homebaker #homebaked #sghomebaker #sgcafe #petitejoybakes
Counting down to the weekend with chocolate cream cheese cupcake, drizzled with some choc and sprinkles. Thanks for the many mini cupcakes design inspiration, @chiccupcakessg ! Spent last night wondering why is mothering such a tough job 😖 ok end rant. Choc makes it easier 😂 #chocolatecupcakes #cupcakes #sgcupcakes #sgcakes #sgcake #sgbaker #bakersofsgp #sundaecupcake #petitejoybakes #foodgawker #sghomebaker
Smash cake for a fellow Aug/Sept baby! 🎉 Rose cake idea from @iambaker and mummy provided color to follow using @noothermeaning blue rosette cake. Great to also hear baby was cooperative during the shoot! #sgcake #sgcakes #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #rosettecake #rosecake #petitejoybakes #bakersofsgp #bakestagram
If only I knew how difficult it is to raise babies!! 😂 mini choc cupcakes to the rescue... New found respect for cakers who do mini cupcakes! Trying to frost nicely w a crying, cranky and teething baby is not easy 😐 #sgbake #sgbaker #sgbakes #sgcupcakes #cupcakes #teal #instabake #petitejoybakes #bakersofsgp
Everyday feeling like stuck in a rat race, trying to complete stuff. The irony part is that, I am not even working!!! 😂 Had been feeling very bad to have been pushing deadlines and delayed response, but I am trying my best. Maybe take a short break again aft Sept 😂😂😂 #sgcookies #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #teachersday2017 #teachersdaygift #petitejoybakes
Bak Kut Teh earlier for lunch. Love this spice bag, except for the MSG 😝
Pandan bread 😋 Replaced some of the bread flour with dark rye flour, and sub the milk with Pandan juice + milk. This bread made the hubby very happy! #homemadebread #sgbread #sgbreakfast #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #flatlay #flatlayforever #flatlayfood #8dayseat #pandanbread #pandan #foodgawker #foodblogger #sgigfood #sgigfoodie
Honey lemon earlier 😍 what a hot weather! #honeylemon #sgfood #foodgawker
I am so sorry, being laggy in replies 😰 Trying my very best to catch up on emails, confirmation and cake sketches. The past week had been busy as I was training our new helper. Though many a times I feel like vomit blood, but I remembered how I was, as I went out to work in my first job. So I reminded myself that everyone deserves a chance to learn and prove themselves. In the midst of teaching her daily chores and cooking, I wish their home country agency could give them adequate training so the girls do not land themselves into wrong expectations frm employers and thus transfer here n there, or be sent back home... and so yes 😂 i digressed.. I will reply u guys soon!! I am so sorry about the delay :(
No more natural lighting for her photos 😂 changed a little configuration to where we are having our meals now. Finally back to food since her fever has subsided. Strawberry cinnamon baby cereal 💕 Trying to influence my kids to love cinnamon like me 😂 #babypuree #babyfood #10monthsold #sgparents
A Golf themed cake yesterday. It was a pretty last minute order as I didn't have enough time to get back on orders with less than 2w waiting time, but I was Glad to be able to get this cake out. On the same day my helper arrives 😂 so, still catching up on emails 🐼 Appreciate all of your patience!! (I probably would hv been very fed up lol) #petitejoybakes #sgcake #sgcakes #sgbake #sgbakes #sgbaker #sgcafes #8dayseat #bakersofsgp #bakelife #cakesofinstagram #cakestagram #cakedecorating #golfcake
This is indeed a LOL-worthy family photo. Sometimes we don't see much beyond a seemingly happy family portrait. I am feeling so Glad and thankful, that over this weekend, I have met with mums who truly could empathise with what I had been going through. As I see fellow mums with similar struggles, I know I am not alone... These 9+mths had been a really dark period of time for me, from swinging mood swings to constant suicidal thoughts, I really don't want to feel or hear people saying that it's easy to take care of 2 kids what, or that I should make every meal from scratch. Unless you know what parenting is like with no backup support, if not please just be kind. I am also Glad that a fellow mum thanked me for sharing with her that things will surely get better.. yes it will, as they grow! And I hope no one would need to go through what I've been through. Lastly, yay!!! My helper is finally arriving next wkend!!!!
Because when you are a SAHM, you hardly put on makeup 😂😂😂 went for a morning birthday party, and it was so fun!! Also happy with my new hair cut, what's more, $24 wash cut blow hehehe 👍🏻
Soup for tonight, beetroot soup! Boiled the beetroot together with carrot, corn, chicken breast (too lazy!), and red dates. 今晚的晚餐之甜菜根鸡肉汤. 因为讲华语运动的风波，所以想提醒自己多用、多看、多听、多讲. 但重要的还是要多学.. 多学习如何有更好的修养!! 😝 Tak boleh tahan the negative comments there 😝 #sgcook #sgcooking #homecooking #beetrootsoup
Green bean soup with Gula Melaka and honey, with marble butter cake for tea break today. The LO's green bean soup has no beans 😝 Made the butter cake for CG yesterday, which we did not made it in the end, as the toddler had slight fever. The cake is tastier today! Some kind of 古早 butter cake taste 😬
Made this banana coconut flour bread, using @butterfingrrs recipe! I kind of miss the paleo bakes frm my GD days, so to try this out, I carted out some coconut flour and rye flour frm @iherb 😂 They taste awesome! Like the usual bread that we eat, with a kind of different texture. I used brown sugar and honey instead (forgot to buy coconut sugar), used cinnamon and nutmeg, and then sprinkled some walnuts on top ✌🏻️ Thanks for sharing the awesome recipe! 🍻 #sgbake #sgbakes #coconutflour #bread #flatlay #foodgawker #foodstagram #foodblogger
Thankful for such a thoughtful toddler 💕 Let the 2 of them bunked in together w me in the kids room last night, though I didn't get to sleep well, the toddler was very happy to snuggle against me while she finally dozed off 💕 Always my baby!
Rainy afternoon snack today: cinnamon maple popcorns! These popcorns (iHerb) are lighter in taste compared to the ones I bought frm ntuc. Yay, the tot enjoyed the popcorn a lot!
#throwback to these cute monkey cookies 德国酥饼, design and recipe frm the very talented @wanwantea 😬 Wonder if I would hv time to make these backbreaking cookies soon 😂
Steamed kueh lapis I managed to make yesterday. It's quite therapeutic making the kueh lapis! Frm natural coloring: red yeast powder, blue pea flower, purple sweet potato. The Colors are a little too light, so I probably will enhance the next round! The toddler enjoyed them so much! #sgfood #kuehlapissagu #kuehlapis #sgfoodblog #sgfoodblogger #sgbake #sgbakes #petitejoybakes
Last night's dinner: couscous in diluted beef broth, cheese and butter. Yay, we finished 3 days of cheese! Hope she's ok with dairy since we've tried yogurt and cheese. Contrary to what some recent studies suggest, I still feel that the LOs' bodies may not be able to handle higher allergen foods at a younger age, so I prefer to go through 3 days test for egg and dairy, and more age appropriate. Now, down to just egg white when she's older 💕 #9m1w #babyfood #babypuree #sgparenting #sgparents
Kopi Banana muffins 💕 Sorry if you are tired of seeing cupcakes and muffins on my feed. Had been experimenting w many recipes, and with each tweak, I make them again to taste 😂 Pretty happy w these one bowl (okay maybe 2 bowls?) mix muffins, that are really easy for anyone to make - without mixer! Try them and let me know if you like them too!

It's been a crazy 9 mths! Looking forward to your 1 yo! (Wonders when will we ever place you to a childcare centre 😂)
Boiling some fish bone soup, which I thought would be nice for the cool weather this evening! Easy and nice recipe from @annieliciousfood 👅✌🏻️
