Summer Veggie Salad

These long and hot summer days (yes – it’s always summer in Singapore!) all I feel like eating is food which are cold and juicy, and not the regular hot fish curry and rice (as one would expect in a Bengali household). As I was browsing some cook books, I came across this Asian salad recipe which is beyond delicious and so perfect for lunch or as an accompaniment for those sweltering summer afternoons.

There is nothing like a fresh cool salad to beat the summer heat and this recipe has a chockfull of healthy goodness. It packs a punch when it comes to the flavours too!

DIY Tulle Tutu Skirt

My adorable niece’s first birthday was coming up and I wanted to gift her something handmade with love which she will (hopefully!) remember and cherish when she grows up.

The Internet is filled with DIY tutorials of tutu skirts for babies and kids, so I started my little project to make one on my own.

DIY Summer Hat with sequins and pom-poms

Summer is here and that means it’s time to get that pretty sun hat out into our lives – right?

My Instagram and Pinterest have been buzzing with these super glam slogan sun hats that I could not help drooling over. I had been feeling really “crafty” (wink-wink ;-)) lately, so to satisfy that itch I decided to make my own Slogan Hat without spending the $$!

Workbooks for Preschoolers

Summer it is!

School Holidays are on and that means it’s that special time of the year when we are with the kids 24X7 and the sanity goes out of the window in a flash!

Even though my both the kids are in a childcare, so they do not really have holidays, but since both the monkeys do not nap in the afternoon, the afternoons are l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-n-n-n-g! But luckily I came across some great activity books which keep them engaged.
