#AuntyLevel999 When Shopping

Earlier this year, I posted about Baby's Instant Food. And then I read about Cheesie's post on her LunchForSakura. I have been reading her blog since the blogging era (now is facebook and instagram era) so what she wrote I believe and I also follow like she is my goddess. She is btw. I am really impressed by her. Lots of things about her that I like. I like how she took care of her kids too. It is like I'm growing old together with her. Hahaha. Anyways.. back to baby's food. She wrote about Nestle Cerelac products so I gave it a try. 


There are only 2 choices in the store that I bought. One is Rice, for 6 months and above. The other is this, Wheat & Honey, also for 6 months and above. Since Athena is 18 months already, some might think, isn't it too late for her to eat this? I thought so too at first but the thing is, she doesn't eat much of other solid food. Probably I am a bad mom cos I don't prepare lots of food for her to try if she likes it or not. Probably also because I used to try to  make few types of baby food with super expensive ingredients for her but she did not eat them in the end so I got discouraged and so I did not prepare with heart anymore. Hahaha. Or probably, my baby starts to eat adult food already she thinks baby food is for baby. Hmm.. 


So, the box Nestle Cerelac in the photo is the one I bought not long ago. It cost me RM8 for 225g. Ok. Fine. So that box of cereal finished, so today I went to the same store wanting to buy the same box since Athena kinda likes it. I make this for her when she doesn't take adult food and when she suddenly discovered that she is a baby that she wants to eat baby cereal. 


Why #AuntyLevel999 ? Haaaaaa... 
People like me, who is a mom to my baby, a wife to my husband, a cheapskate to myself, will normally compare prices for the items that I buy la. What makes me miscalculate the last time I bought this? Why did I end up buying something in can / container compared to the box which should cost lesser? 

1) It costs lesser because it does not have a can / container. 
2) It costs lesser because it is in the box. 

Makes sense right??


So today, I accidentally saw the price for the can / container. It was priced at RM14.70 .. from the size of the box and the can / container, I was not aware how much one weigh. So I took a close look at the net weight. 


In box, 225g for RM8.00
In can / container, 500g for RM14.70

So, if I were to buy 2 boxes of 225g, it will be RM8 x 2 = RM16
that will be almost or equivalent to one can = 500g = RM14.70

.........





............

How is that possible?

Let's recalculate:-
225g x 2 = 450g = RM8 x 2 = RM16
500g = RM14.90


Can someone please enlighten me?

Anyways, I wish we have more flavors for Nestle Cerelac in Kuching. 


Something like..
Rice & Chicken with Milk
Oat, Wheat & Prunes with Milk

or 

Rice & Milk
Rice & Soya with Milk
Brown Rice & Milk

Photo from here.

Or do we even have this
Rice & Mixed Vegetables with Milk

Photo from here.
Or these are already in the stores, just that I don't know?

Laneige BB Cushion Whitening SPF50+


Laneige, is a South Korean cosmetics brand owned by Amore Pacific. Laneige is created by Amore Pacific in 1994. I am not sure about you but I am curious what makes them named this cosmetics and why. So I googled. The brand name comes from La Neige, which means SNOW in French. Ok. I like the name and its meaning. I like the paperbag too. 


When I was queuing for payment at Parkson counter, I saw a lady with Laneige paperbag. I got excited. I have this thing with paperbags. Who doesn't like nice paperbag when it is given free ? So, I thought I would be given until I received just the plastic bag from Parkson. Disappointed of course. So after payment, Sin asked me to go back to Laneige counter to ask for that paperbag that I want. I did. And here it is.. my Laneige Paperbag. 
#AuntyLevel999


This is what I got this time Laneige X Lucky Chouette. If you have been to Laneige counter, you know they have this beautiful boxes on promotions with more free gifts, wrapped beautifully that made you want to bring them home. Yes. I was one of the suckers that cannot NOT BUY if I see them. Hence this Limited Edition Laneige BB Cushion set in the house. Hahaha. 


Without the box unfortunately. I should have asked them to provide me the box too so I can let Athena plays with it. Or put Athena's toys in it. Or probably, make a tabung for her to keep her money in the box. Good idea right? Recycle ma. 
*self reminder: Must remember to get the box next time too, since the promotion itself has this*


Unboxing and here are the contains of what are inside the boxes of RM239. 

1) Laneige BB Cushion has a refill pack that comes together. That means one case with BB Cushion + One Refill for RM159. Actually you can buy online with cheaper price lo, but recently I just don't have the time to do so. It was Parkson Double Bonuslink Day of the month, so might as well la. Some more can get the paperbag for free. HAHAHAHA. 

2) Laneige Limited Edition Owls Serum Drop Tint @ RM80. I'm not a lipstick person but somehow, a sucker just have to buy something and then got this Parkson voucher worth RM30. Hahaha.. 

3) Free Gifts : 
Laneige Water Bank Essense. 
Laneige Oil Free Cleansing Liquid.

4) Tokyo Toy borrowed from Athena <-- HAHAHA 

5) Limited Edition BB Cushion Puff. This one is seriously important because .... (you will know when you scroll down later) 


So, here are the free gifts from the Limited Edition Box. 


My first BB Cushion was this.. also a limited edition. If you are a Laneige products lover, you will also have a set of this.


The reason why you need more BB Cushion Puff is because of this. You might not have appetite seeing what's inside. Hahahahaha !!! I haven't got time to clean up this. Will so do in the near future, or probably tonight la.. I promise.. 


Aaaaahhhh... New pack of 2017 Limited Edition Laneige BB Cushion. 


I have started using this again.. Let's see how long it will last this time. One thing for sure.. my bb cushion puffs will not look like the previous one. Hahahahah !!


#kthxbyeee

SinRoseLittleFamily Day


Helloooooo Wednesdayyyy !!! Time flies. It is yet another mid week. 
Since I have so many photos on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, a good camera phone after my Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was recalled back, I might as well post as many photos as I can over in the blog. 

A random Sunday well spent. Good hair day means more selfies / wefie / fiefie. Hahaha.. 



Thanks to Hairbeauron. My hair can never look like Athena's but I'm somewhere near that straight hair. Hahaha. 


It is hard to get her smile. Especially when she is at warm places. 


Look at that "See what see"-kinda face. 


Almost there. After taking like XX-times of selfies.


My baby wanting to act like adult. No baby chair for her. She wanted to be as short  tall as her Mami, so she stood up. 
Ok. You win Athena !! You are definitely taller than Mami now. 


All the failed photos.
#1

#2:

#3:

Ok. Probably it is easier to take photos of food and drinks. Hahaha..

I just discovered that the Teh-C Peng Special at Oriental Park is good. Next best after the 7th Mile Teh-C Peng Special. hahaha. 
#BasedOnMyOwnTasteLaaa


This is one of the best breakfast combination. 
Kuching famous Oriental Park's Kolo Mee with CharSiew Oil, topped with Charcoal BBQ CharSiew and minced meat. Must be eaten together with their cilipadi. 
with a glass of Teh C Peng Special. 
Heavenly goooood. 


Afternoon Tea prepared by #ChefJackyBenson


Miscommunication between theHub and myself. We saw a piece of Salmon Sashimi at Choice 101. I told theHub that I wanted to have Sashimi. So he said let's get a piece of it then. The next thing I know after making our baby sleep in the afternoon, theHub turned the salmon sashimi into this beautiful plate of snack for afternoon tea. 


I still want my Salmon Sashimi pleaseeeeee..

Goodbye My One & Only Breast Pump Bag

This is breast pump bag that I got during my confinement. That was like 17 months ago, more or less. 


I like the design. I like it because theHub can carry it without feeling feminine. Hahaha. 


But unfortunately, the bag has aged. Not only on the outside.


But also on the inside :( 


Those stickers.. hahaha.. those were the labels i stick on my pumping storage bottles and also on the breastmilk storage bags. My waktu gemilang. Those were the days. 


I have not stopped production. Just that I have decreased my pumping sessions from many many times a day to maximun 3 times per day and automatically, my production also reduce. 

Probably it is time to get some branded bag.. than a pumping bag. HA.HA.HA.

Unknown Stuffs On Biosilk Pantyliner

If you accidentally saw a post on facebook regarding a pantyliner that I posted on their facebook page, it was not my intention to let the public see. I was just thinking if Biosilk should take note of this since a packet of Biosilk PantyLiner cost about RM11. 


It was to my shock when I opened up a new pack of Biosilk Pantyliner and dust flew out from that piece of pantyliner and made me cough. I am not exaggerating. Look !!


After I posted, I left my phone in bag and off we went out for brunch and few hours later when I got home, when Athena was sleeping, I took out my phone and was surprised to see notifications from friends and others on this post. This is not the first case if you check out their "Visitors Post" tab. 


One of the Biosilk representatives from Kuching contacted me and wanting me to give back this pack to them and they will return a pack to me. I told her that it will be too time consuming if I were just to meet her to change a pack of pantyliner. I said it doesn't matter because

#1: I wasn't expect anything from them so I threw the dusty pantyliner away after I took the photo of it.

#2: If I were to meet her up, meaning to say, I expect something more than just a pack of pantyliner.

That is why I said it is too time consuming. Day time, I am busy with work. Evening time, I wish to have my own time because being a wife and a mother to a baby, when you have "free" time, it means a Bonus to you. 

But she insisted saying her boss wants that pack of pantyliner. I ignored her message because I told her the above reasons and she doesn't seem to understand me.

Zu Sakuraitei, Another Japanese Restaurant in Kuching


Ian sent a last minute random dinner invitation in our group chat to dine at Zu Sakuraitei. theHub and I haven't been exploring places in Kuching since we have our little one. It is not easy to bring a baby around with you, especially to dining places. But.. Since Ian was about to leave the next day and we haven't even heard of this Japanese Restaurant before and since we also need to get our dinner fixed, so we joined them for dinner. Haha. 


Upon entering the restaurant, we had the feel that the place feels and looks like Sanga. Very much alike. Even some of the people look alike. So we asked and got confirmation that it is somehow related but not sure how they are related. Whatever it is.. it is the food that we want to know and hope that they are not like some temporary open then close kinda restaurant. Haha. 

Even the menu looks very much similar right? 




We ordered green tea because it is FREE.. and we were surprised when we were served hot and cold green tea. 
Look at the size !!


So small that we have to take few more photos just to prove that the hot ocha cup is really small. 


So small that it is smaller than Sin's fist. 


and then we were served a very beautiful sakura-themed teapot with a bucket of ice. Ooops. 
So guys, don't be too judgemental. We are sorry we were. 
  

and you know what.. there is different in the green tea. This green tea served to us in pot is very "kao" to the extend both Ernest and I need to add ice into our cup. The ones we normally had at Sanga, it was more like green tea flavoured hot water. But the ocha in Zu Sakuraitei is very Japanese.  


 While waiting for our food to be served.. #Fiefie-ing with my baby. 


I said in my previous post that it is okay for the mami to be ugly in the photos because the focus is on the baby most of the time. Her hair, her eyes, her mouth, her expressions, her OOTD. Hahaha. 


 Some #MeTime when the baby is somewhere at the corner. 


Don't worry. It's a safe corner. Look !! 


Cheers for the new year. Cheers for a better year. Cheers for great companion. Cheers for Ian.


Grace and Ian kinda food. 


 "behind the scene" of active instagrammers. Hahaha. 


Even Athena was getting ready her Samsung 7 Edge to do her job. 


Oops. Being spotted by Ernest. Very camera alert hor.. Hahahaha.


You can't really go wrong with beef in Japanese Restaurant, but to us, the beef here is overcooked. We expect better quality of food though. Huhuhu.


Cha Soba with AgeTofu set. This is good, just that it would be better if wasabi is included in this meal. 


Here's our group photos for the evening. Always good to hang out with them (and the missing ones cos it was too last minute so many couldn't make it. Lucky we did cos it was a good catch up)


Thanks Ian, Ernest and Grace for the photos contributed to this post. Hehehe. 


Come and try at Zu Sakuraitei. Reasonable price for such food and location.


Zu Sakuraitei is located at Ground Floor, Sublot 7,
Lot 12158, Block 16, KCLD, Jalan Song, Kuching. 

in short, it is just located next to Cupella at Jalan Song.
