Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers! Today is such a special day because we are giving honour to the mothers all in the world. I have never realised how special this day is until I become a mom of two. Motherhood is not easy. Ask any mom. But somehow all the hardship are all worth our while because it is done out of pure love. I was touched my husband gave me a bouquet of flowers early yesterday for Mothers’ Day. I don’t want an award for all the sacrifices and hardship for taking care of our kids but it feels nice to be appreciated once and awhile. Plus receiving flowers makes me feel happy. You know what they say “Happy Mom=Happy Kids“.
This week, it was nice that I got to meet up with a colleague friend of mine who is now working in a different clinic. We were able to catch up with news of each other and have a pastel pedicures at this cute salon in Beach Road called Manicurious.
I am lucky to have the coolest and sweetest workmates. They arranged a Welcome-Back-After Maternity-Leave Dinner for me after work. I brought along Fynn so they can meet him too. We had a great time chatting, eating and taking turns in carrying Fynn.
We had the dinner at Royal’s Cafe. I tried their meesiam and it is the best meesiam I ever tasted. I am still dreaming about it. I love to bring my hubby and kids there soon. They have a corner for kids to play. They got a long table near the window with lots of Lego.
Today, we went to Marche′ for Mothers’ Day dinner. I got a chocolate cake treat upon entering the restaurant. That is such a sweet gesture. We got a pizza, roasted pork, pasta, garlic bread, ice cream and chocolate fudge cake. Naj was so happy playing at the kid’s corner. Marche′ is one of the kid-friendly restaurants in Singapore.
