The Chinese garden in Singapore {Chloé}

Two weeks ago on Father's day we went to visit the Chinese Garden. It was a bright and sunny day... we nearly melted in the heat! It was a nice stroll, but we still prefer our Botanic Garden, or the East Coast Park!!


Chloe thinks the pagodas are princess castles :)

My little man...

Mathias loves climbing up stairs!

* PS: sorry for the quality of the photos... since Chloé has jumped in the pool with my little Cybershot camera, I've had to use my Iphone... not really the same :)

Mama's birthday is passed already but we have a few pictures ready now... Mama's friend Marion and our friend Oscar came to celebrate. We had a good time and a big slice of chocolate cake {the house's favorite}!!

Mama's challenges {Chloe}

My Mama has this new thing at the moment... she's giving herself challenges on top of her workload so that things like making her wedding albums - or my album when I was a baby, get a chance to be done at some point.

Her first challenge was to make me a new dress with a batik fabric from Indonesia she bought early last year. She also used the embroidery of a shirt Papa had from India (too small for him). I modeled my new dress yesterday:

I never allow Mama to tie up my hair like this, but she "bribed" me and put make up on me in exchange.
The little horse is my new plushie. My Mama made it for me :)
I think it's part of a project she's working on at the moment... shhhht, still a secret!
I have called her Cinderella (!) and Mathias wants to play with her but I don't let him, he might break her. Mama said she will make another one just for Mathias.
I think it's a good idea...

L'Affiche Moderne {The Handmade Hullabaloo}

Hello! My latest blog post for The Handmade Hullabaloo is live! check it out, I have prepared a lovely post about L'Affiche Moderne, a French online gallery presenting the work of young photographers, graphic designers and children's illustrators.

These two below are my choices for my two children: the little cars and trucks with the animals driving them is so funny, my 18 month-old son would love it! He's all passionate by engines and animals at the moment. I love Sarah Jane's illustrations, and it was harder to pick something for my 4 year-old daughter... but ultimately the animals playing music is too cute to be missed!

But guess what?!... I was the lucky winner of a giveaway organised by Peggy of Paul et Paula blog. The prize was a poster from L'Affiche Moderne! So I asked my daughter to show me which poster was her favorite... and she eventually picked up the pink world map {in French}.

I will blog about it when we receive it... stay tuned!
