Give Thanks To What We Are Blessed With

~ Posted on Monday, November 26, 2012 at 7:21 AM ~

Years ago, I used to think that life is not fair and wondered why other people get to have this and that... Until one day I realized, oh well, sometimes you've gotta look at the other person's perspective and you've gotta also look at the bigger picture. For example:

* It's not fair that I don't get to continue my studies, I mean I only had 1 year Diploma in IT... but before I quit my IT job in June 2009, I know I earned more than my friends who went overseas, got degree, got Masters, etc etc...

* It's not fair that I have to work my way up with just 1 year Diploma in IT, but I realized now I get higher pay because I started working at a young age. Those years and years of experience is way much more valuable than a degree...

* It's not fair that my parents passed away (dad in April 2006, mum in Jan 2007) but I realized, God works in a mysterious way... I am comforted in knowing my parents accepted Jesus before they passed on.

The grass always look greener on the other side. How am I to know that maybe the other person is also envious and saying that it's not fair I get this and that? Right?

And, think about it... God gave us another day to live on this planet, no pain, no sickness, with loved ones around, what more could we ask for?

What more do you want?

Why must we be so greedy and keep wanting more?

Why can't we make do and be happy with what we are blessed with and stop saying it's not fair?

Look at the bigger picture and be contented and give thanks to what we are blessed with! I'm thankful for my health, my hubby's health, my family's health, and oh yes, thankful I have a family of my own!

What are you thankful for today?

** Pst: Btw, that's the Nissan LEAF car we were posing next to. I am also thankful we get to test drive the car for 7 weeks!

Product Review & Giveaway - Putto Secret Foam Wash

~ Posted on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 at 12:00 PM ~

I received an email from Applecrumby & Fish asking whether I would be interested to review one of the products range in their store and oh boy, who am I to say no to trying out awesome products for my family and I right?! So here goes my review for the "Putto Secret Foam Wash":

Putto Secret Foam Wash

Description from the product page:
"Putto Secret Foam Wash is as unique as it can get. A baby body wash which is in liquid form while in its packaging, foams up wonderfully once pumped out. It is convenient to use and cleanses gently but effectively. Most importantly, it will never dry out baby's sensitive skin. Putto Secret Foam Wash does not contain Sulphates, Parabens nor Mineral Oils."

 The bottle is just about the right size and easy to hold. The nozzle is protected with a transparent cover which is good. My initial reaction when I squeezed some out onto my palm is: "What?! Just some bubble? Huh?!" but wait... read on... 

Putto Secret Foam Wash

To be honest I was thinking how much bubble and foam could there be since I just squeezed out a small amount but wow, to my surprise, there's a lot of foam coming out just after a few seconds. It smells good, not too overwhelming at all.

Putto Secret Foam Wash

I used it for both my kids twice a day and their skin stays smooth and supple. Although this can be used as a bubble bath, I decided not to as I feel it is very precious and you have no idea how crazy my kids go whenever they have their bubble baths. They take forever to play in their bath tub so I'm reserving this foam wash solely for applying directly onto their skin and rinsing it off.

Putto Secret Foam Wash

The plus point in this product is that it is baby skin friendly, and it does not contains preservatives and colouring agents. It also promotes scar relief and provides high moisturising elements. I like that it is also suitable for all skin types especially for dry and sensitive skin.

What a great product that is also safe to use on our little one's skin!

I am so intrigued when I saw the press release for this pendant! I mean, a pendant engraved with 120 'I love you' languages?! How cool is that? So here goes my review for the beautiful "I Love You 120 Languages Pendant Onyx":

This elegant love pendant is a gift straight from the heart that will surely dazzle your loved ones, available in a stylish black oval onyx (15x21) engraved in 24 karat gold set in a choice of shimmering sterling silver or gorgeous 14 karat gold."

Sorry for the picture quality... I tried my best to zoom in as close as I can, it's either reflecting my camera or I can't capture the super miniature words inscribed on the pendant. Now, the pendant came in a cute little jewelry box with a miniature magnifying glass which you can use to read the various 'I love you' words in all 120 languages! 

I love the shimmering sterling silver necklace and the length is just nice! The pendant itself is not heavy at all and I love seeing all the words inscribed in tiny details!
