As some of you guys may know, I took a year off working to spend some time with the kids. I have been toying with this idea with Aidan back then and finally decided to do so after after my maternity period with Davina.

There were many variables that played to my decision making, some being the lack of caregivers but the majority being the unbearable mom guilt. I had very nice colleagues back then with one of the best bosses ever however I was not motivated by the work. My role back then was evolving and it wasn't part of my expertise nor what I wanted to do in the long run. So after more than 4 years in the big agency, I decided to take a break.

That being said, I was kinda still "working". I was still hustling with my social media activities, going for events, writing ads etc. I also took up a freelance business development job for a friend which kinda cemented my interest in sales.

But overall, I was a SAHM 6 days a week. I will be sharing my experience transitioning from a FTWM to a SAHM.

As my personal motto for 2020, I intend to share more personal musings for the year. So be prepared for more of such posts!

As some of you guys may know, I have had my hair taken care of by Caely Tham for years now.

I've been bleaching my hair for years now and for the past year been curling my hair almost every other day. As a result, my hair is a bit messy and dry.

I tried Leekaja's Cinderella Treatment last year and I was excited to hear about Caely's latest package - the Nautical Hair Revival. This treatment is exclusive to Caely.

What is the Nautical Hair Revival?

Basically the treatment is a specially customised 3 parter consisting of Volume Rebonding, 7-Step Hair Treatment and Leekaja's Signature Cinderella Treatment. The treatment is customised according to everyone's hair condition and can be mixed and matched depending on the hair condition and effect needed to be achieved.

I spoke to Caely and after assessing my hair condition and needs, she recommended a 100% natural treatment consisting of plant extracts only. She concocted of a treatment consisting of the 7-Step Hair Treatment and Cinderella Treatment which is pumped with high-nutrient deep sea moss and organic ingredients like aloe vera, vitamins and collagens to achieve a smooth, shiny, anti-frizzy and moisturised result.

While talking to Caely, we thought of a cute analogy. Think of the Nautical Hair Revival like cosmetics. It's a non permanent solution that isn't damaging while chemical treatments like rebonding is like plastic surgery which is permanent.

This treatment is unlike other Keratin treatments at other places as it's using plant extracts and is very gentle to the hair. It helps smoothens hair cuticles from the outside and it's easy to achieve easy to manage hair. Unlike typical Keratin treatments, you can still curl and style your hair. Here are pics of my before and after.

Look at the huge difference! If you'll like a hair treatment that lasts for months and have fuss free hair, I'll highly recommend the Nautical Hair Revival treatment.

Check out Leekaja Beauty Salon located at Mandarin Gallery now! Quote my name (nadia or nadnut) to get a discount off your chemical services (i.e. colouring, treatment, perming, straightening etc)! Anyway, If you like any of my hair colours, do show Caely these pics to get the colours! Easier to show her. Go for this Korean Keratin Treatment today!

I am a HUGE fan of Mala and was extremely excited to have received an invite from Tian Wei Seafood for a food tasting for Mala Crab!

Together with the fam and my friend Colin, we visited Tian Wei Seafood.

Tian Wei Seafood is a seafood restaurant in Singapore is located in an open air coffee shop at Tagore Lane with plenty of areas to park for those driving. I spoke to their staff and understood that they pride themselves in serving delicious and fresh seafood at affordable prices. This is definitely a plus as I was looking for best places to eat in Singapore!

After eating at Tian Wei Seafood, I gotta say, I think they have to be one of the most affordable and best mala crab restaurant in Singapore.

These are the items we tried:

We started our meal with the delicious Yuzu Wasabi Oyster. Very refreshing and fresh! I am actually quite picky about my oysters but I really enjoyed Tian Wei's and actually reached out for another!

We then had a bowl of the Fish Maw and Crab Meat Soup. This was light and tasty that the kids really enjoyed it!

As with every typical asian meal, we had to have rice. Especially for the kids! They are always requesting for rice. We ordered the Yangzhou Fried Rice. My friend Colin really enjoyed this and polished this off!

For the vegetable dishes, we had the Trio Egg Spinach and Steamed Lady Finger.

The men thoroughly enjoyed the Trio Egg Spinach and kept raving over it!

As a huge garlic fan, I was happy to let the men concentrate on the Trio Egg Spinach dish while I gobbled the Garlic Bamboo Clam up. It's extremely fresh and well prepared. I love how generous they were with the vermicelli and garlic! It is not difficult to see why this is one of their signature dishes!

But the star hero of the whole meal would have to be their Original Mala Crab! You can choose to opt for mild, medium or spicy depending on your spice tolerance. We tried mild and we loved it! As a huge fan of mala, I loved the combo!

All of us raved over the Mala Crab and couldn't get over how juicy and fresh the crabs were!

The crabs are priced at $88 per kg when we visited and we polished 2 crabs off! Tian Wei Seafood used Sri Lankan Crab here as compared to the typical Jumbo Crab and we could definitely taste the difference compared to our other crab meals outside. The Sri Lankan Crab is sweeter, fresher and juicier! Seriously, this has to be one of the best mala crab restaurant in Singapore!

Our lil fam thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Tian Wei Seafood and I have to say, it is one of the best seafood restaurants that I have been to, so far!

Would definitely be back and this time, I'm gonna order a spicier Mala Crab!

Thank you Tian Wei Seafood Restaurant for having us! Thank you Colin for pics!

After giving birth to 2 kids via C-section and putting on a considerable amount of weight, my tummy has gone thru a lot.

I have a very unsightly double bulge and was looking for solutions to help my mum tum. I wasn't open to surgery for now and needed a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that would not affect my breastfeeding. I read a few reviews from fellow mummy bloggers about CoolSculpting and was super intrigued about it.

I made an appointment with Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics located at Orchard Gateway to find out more about the treatment and here's what I learnt.

About CoolSculpting

1. Consult with Dr. Terence

I met up with Dr. Terence Tan and he shared that CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive, no downtime fat reduction treatment. It is the only USA FDA-approved fat freezing treatment that uses the concept of cryolipolysis to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells, which are then disposed from the body naturally.

2. Consult_CoolSculpting diagram

He also shared that the treatment removes 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area each time. The science behind it is our body is unable to produce any new fat cells after five years of age. The fat cells that die during the fat freezing process will be gone forever which is why CoolSculpting is ideal to be used to remove unwanted fat which can't be removed through spot toning exercises.

Some areas that can be treated are the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, back, banana roll (butt cheeks), knees, cheeks and even the double chin!
