QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags

Sponsored Review

I’m sure all mothers can easily name at least one must-have item in their bags when they head outdoors with their little ones. If you ask me, I never leave home without some QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags. They are the most convenient, hygienic and fuss-free way of disposing soiled diapers, wipes and tissues at home or on-the-go. There were times where we found ourselves in a sticky situation (pardon the pun) when Little misschewy decides to poop in the car! We had to pull over to give her a diaper change there and then as she was whining and squirming in her car seat. Needless to say, on unlucky days when a rubbish bin is nowhere in sight, the rest of the ride becomes an unpleasant one with all windows wind down in a desperate bid to eliminate the overpowering stench.

We face a different problem at home. As Little misschewy is still not ready to be toilet-trained, we find ourselves going through several diaper changes in a day. Any parent will agree that dirty diapers smell from bad to worse over time and to prevent our sense of smell from becoming impaired, we force ourselves to dump the soiled diapers down the rubbish chute located outside our house, which is pretty much a hassle. Imagine having to walk out 5 to 6 times a day! For these above two situations mentioned, the QuickGrab Fragranced Nappy Disposal Bags are truly a lifesaver as we no longer have to make frequent trips to the rubbish chute outside our home and diaper changes in the car are not as unpleasant anymore.

I was completely sold upon learning that QuickGrab nappy bags offer long lasting odour protection. Enough research and development had been carried out to ensure that the fragrance embedded into the nappy bags stays and diffuses into its surroundings, leaving a clean and fresh scent. I would say that this is QuickGrab nappy bags’ major selling point as many parents are highly bothered by the smell of soiled diapers.

As you can see from the photos above, a QuickGrab Grab Pack containing 125 bags is of an optimal size which will not take up much space in your bag. It is very convenient to bring along with you everywhere you go. You can also choose to bring only a handful of bags instead of the entire Grab Pack. The nappy bags are specially packed such that they get dispensed one bag at a time. All you have to do is simply tear along the perforated line and pull out a nappy bag.

No more having to hunt for used plastic bags that are saved from our grocery trips! I also like that these QuickGrab nappy bags are of the right size and the dark tint subtly disguises the contents within.

The easy-tie handles of the QuickGrab nappy bags also help to keep germs and bacteria locked in.

Trick Eye Museum Singapore Plus Giveaway!

Media Invite

Art of Love

Wassup everyone! I had a super duper fun filled long weekend at Trick Eye Museum Singapore at Resorts World Sentosa! The name “Trick Eye” comes from the shortened form of the term Trick of the eye and refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images. It is through the use of optical illusions that three-dimensional paintings on the surfaces of the museum walls, floors and ceilings come alive. The museum offers various themed galleries where visitors are more than welcome to be part of the creative experience and are encouraged to explore with their eyes, hands and cameras too.

There are many artworks at the museum which are perfect interaction between parent and children, which makes Trick Eye Museum the latest family-friendly attraction in Singapore. Apart from family outings, it is also a great place for double dates too! So glad that we asked PR and J along, and we had double the fun! :) Hope you enjoy the photos that we took and please take part in our giveaway contest!

Yoomi Feeding System Warms Baby’s Milk in 60 Seconds Plus Giveaway!

Sponsored Review

IMG_6166

It is Little misschewy’s feeding time. She is hungry and red-faced from all the crying (actually, in the above photo, she was just acting cute 😛 ). It takes like forever to warm chilled expressed breast milk packed from home. I have been through this situation many times and it is highly stressful for first time parents especially during the initial stage as newborns are not easily distracted when they are hungry. They want their milk and they want it NOW. In the past, I resorted to feeding formula milk as the time taken to prepare is much shorter compared to warming breast milk. Is this the best solution? Obviously not. Yes, breastfeeding mummies can always nurse in public but some babies do not latch on, and not all babies enjoy being nursed under a nursing cover. This is especially true when they get older, as they tend to reach out and grab everything within reach, which includes tugging at nursing covers and threatening to expose their mummies!

When Agnes from AT Marketing Consultancy invited me to review the award-winning Yoomi feeding system by Yoomi Singapore, I readily agreed without much consideration because the idea of an innovative self-warming bottle providing perfect breast milk temperature feed in just 60 seconds and then staying warm for an hour sounds like something which will change my life in a positive way.

A bit about Yoomi:

– No-fuss latch on: natural breast-shaped and super-soft silicone teat which allows for a breast-from-breast experience
– Transition sorted: consistent breast milk temperature feed provided by Yoomi, babies have a familiarity they need to support weaning from breast to bottle
– Reduced likelihood of colic with its 6 anti-colic vents (most bottles have 1-4)
– Easy pouring and mixing: Yoomi’s unique, wide-necked bottle makes pouring and mixing simple – as well as clean and tidy
– Convenient: being suitable for both expressed breast-milk and formula, and ideal for combination or bottle feeding. Yoomi supports all babies’ feeding needs
– Comfy grip: the ergonomically designed bottle makes Yoomi easy to grip and more comfortable to hold during longer feeds
– Safe: the Yoomi range is 100% BPA free and meets the highest safety standards feeding
– Beautifully simple: using patented technology, the Yoomi pod enables warmers to be recharged in the microwave in just 2 mins using a ‘heat-shake, heat-shake’ method

IMG_6123

Yoomi feeding system is actually very simple. Firstly, the warmer needs to be charged. There are a few ways to do so but my favorite method is to let it boil for 30 minutes. Once the warmer is fully charged, there will be a clear rattling sound when you shake it. Allow the warmer to cool for at least 75 minutes at room temperature or 20 minutes in cold water before using.

IMG_6124

Another method of charging is to place the warmer in the charging pod before heating it in the microwave using the “heat shake heat shake” method. I personally find this method less straightforward, so I prefer to use the boiling method.

IMG_6167

Place the warmer in the Yoomi bottle and fill it with baby’s feed before heading out. Hungry baby eyeing her milk!

IMG_6173

The Yoomi warmer, which contains the same gel used in hand warmers, is activated by simply pressing the orange button. By using a clever ‘phase change’ material (meaning it changes from a liquid to a solid), Yoomi generates heat.

IMG_6174

When the bottle is tipped, the cold feed is gently warmed as it flows around the specially designed channels on the outside of the warmer. By the time the feed reaches the teat, it is at natural breast milk temperature (32-34˚C). All these take place in just 60 seconds. The warmer has been cleverly designed so that it cannot overheat the feed and stays warm for up to an hour.

IMG_6180

Happy baby = Happy mummy! Chanelle didn’t have to wait too long for her milk this time and she’s taking really well to the Yoomi bottle which is not surprising because of its natural breast-shaped and super soft silicone teat.

IMG_6182

I like how convenient it is now to bring out chilled breast milk for Little misschewy’s feeds but the warmer can only be used for one feed by staying warm for up to an hour. It is recommendeded that mummies buy a few warmers and charge all of them together so that the warmers can last you long hours while you are on the move.

A Candylicious Day at Resorts World Sentosa for The Chewys!

Candylicious Day 005

Yoohoo! Tuesday is Chewsday! Hahaha 😛 Just wanna share what misterchewy and I did over the weekend! We spent Saturday night visiting The Star Vista and had a nice dinner at Brotzeit before going home. Everywhere was jam-packed with people forming queues outside every single restaurant and eatery! On Sunday, we made it a point to wake up early so that we could make a fruitful trip to Resorts World Sentosa and to check out Candylicious Day! 😀 Nope, we didn’t go to USS although we had been there sometime around this time of the year, two years ago. Can’t remember when was the last time we went to Sentosa! I was kinda appalled when we stood in front of the ticketing machine, only to find out that the admission fee now costs $3.50 instead of $3. Is this 50cents increase justifable in the first place? Oh shucks now I sound like an auntie :S Hahaha I’m just kidding okay 😛

Candylicious Day 072

Candylicious, USS, Garett Popcorn, etc are all located at Waterfront Station, which is just one stop away from VivoCity.

Candylicious Day 011

CANDYLICIOUS! *screams* Seeing all these cute, colorful and cheery decorations is enough to brighten up my mood by tenfolds immediately! Anyway, this is the very FIRST Candylicious Day in Singapore! This is in celebration of Candylicious’ 1 year in Malaysia, 2 years in Singapore and 3 years in Dubai. 😀

Candylicious Day 013

Here’s misterchewy taking a bite of the gigantic Candylicious chocolate bar!

Candylicious Day 015

My brother and I used to sing to the M&M’s commercial on TV, “M&M’s chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your hand”. One of my all-time favorite chocolates, especially those with peanuts in them!

The queues looked fairly manageable. I think the hype had more or less died down so I didn’t have to feel guilty about sending misterchewy to queue for our food 😛

Candylicious Day 057

We shared Char Kway Teow ($5) and Chicken Rice Balls ($4.50). Food was average but the prices were pretty ok. I had expected around $7 to $10 by RWS standards.

Candylicious Day 070

Candylicious Day 071

We left RWS shortly after lunch and to further utilize our admission ticket, we hopped on the monorail and entertained ourselves by watching ‘flyer’s have a go at iFly Singapore. Looks really fun! Might consider coming back to try this out, together with the Segway and Skyline Luge 😀

Candylicious Day 066

Oh yes, we also received our Candylicious Blogger’s Goodie Bag! 😀
