After 1 long month of rest, I’m finally back to writing.
November passed by in a blur as I was unwell and lethargic. Blood pressure plummeted to as low as 89/50, and all I wanted to do was lie down day and night. Even a simple task like washing vegetables for 10 minutes exhausted me. So all writing halted. Then I went through a medical procedure 2 days ago, and am finally regaining my energy again.
Gosh… I miss taking proper care of Vee, writing, and online shopping! I’m soooo glad to be healthy again!
It’s 1 Dec 2010, my first day of being well, and there are already 3 exciting events to share with you:
1. Disney On Ice 2011
For the past 10+ years, I’ve always wanted to watch Disney On Ice in Singapore, but never made it to one. The grace displayed by ice-skaters is simply mesmerising. Today, the tickets for next year’s show in Kuala Lumpur are on sale and immediately I grabbed a pair of VIP tickets. They cost a small bomb, but Vee gets to enter for FREE (since he’d still be under 3 years old, for the last time next year).
Title: Worlds of Fantasy
Dates: 1 to 3 April 2011
Venue: Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (I couldn’t find any information if the show would be held in Singapore too.)
Where to buy tickets: Ticketpro (online or its outlets) (Buying online means reaching 2 hours in advance to collect tickets, so I bought at an outlet instead.)
Discounts: 10% for early birds, 15% for Toys “R” Us Star members
I certainly look forward to enjoying our first show with Vee.
2. TONNES of Melissa & Doug Toys at ThinkToys
While on the way to grabbing the Disney on Ice tickets, I passed by ThinkToys store (previously ELC), which is finally re-stocked with toys instead of the 50% clearance sale that has been going on for way toooo long.
And taadaa…! I was overwhelmed with shelves and shelves of Melissa & Doug puzzles and toys, which arrived yesterday. This is the LARGEST range of Melissa & Doug toys I’ve seen in KL. Previously, only Toy “R” Us carried a small collection.
Hubby nearly had to drag me out of the store. Before he did that, I grabbed a box of wooden cutting food for him to settle the bill. Vee loves pretend cooking and we seriously need some pretend food. I’ll definitely be back to grab more stuff.

3. Cloth Diapers Sale at eZ Motherhood
From 1 to 31 Dec 2010, eZ Motherhood is holding a sale on cloth diapers and baby accessories. I’ve checked out the prices, which look attractive indeed.
This is my chance to upgrade Vee’s Dancing Bears Night Weight Fleece Soakers to Large, before his Medium ones start bursting at the seams. These fleece shorts provide a 12-hour bulletproof and breathable cover over his fitted diapers at night. eZ Motherhood is the ONLY store in Singapore and Malaysia to retail them. Previously, they were out of stock and I’d to ship 3 pieces directly from the U.S.A., which cost a lot more. (Side note regarding the colours: Aztec Purple & Navy shed lots of lint, while Loden Green washes wonderfully.)
My next tasks are to wrap up the super-overdue Giveaways (#12, #13, #14). Thank you to everyone for your patience with me for the past month. Happy year-end shopping!

Oh wow! What happened to you? Glad that you’re feeling better now!
Btw, those toys looks fun! Ben was playing with a similar toy like that in a shop while we were shopping for his baby stuff recently. I’m going to check out their products! Thanks for sharing!
Uh… what happened is a loooong story. Yup, great to be healthy again! Melissa & Doug wooden toys are very high quality and educational. Love them to bits…
If you are looking for wooden play food, there’s a store at Ikano Power Center that sells Mother Garden wooden play food toys which IMHO is soooooo cute! If you prefer to buy them online, do take a peep at my blogshop!
BTW, both my kids love Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles.
Thank you very much for your suggestion, Hui Wearn. We definitely prefer good quality wooden toys over plastic ones. The “feel” is simply different. Will be taking a peep for sure! 🙂
Looking forward for the Disney on Ice!
You’re going too? I’m super-excited! 🙂
hi there mievee.
is your son using the soaker for his nite time diapering? do u wear his pj long pants over it too?
can i know which fitted diapers u are using now?
thx for sharing.
Hi mel, yes, he’s been using Dancing Bears night-weight fleece soaker for the past 12 months at night and even nap-time nowadays. During night-time, he wears a pair of thin cotton pants over the soaker.
He’s actually using semi-fitted (or known as fitted pocket) diapers from GAD (need snappi) and Happy Heinys (known as Happy Hempys, velcro closure). With 1 Knickernappies SuperDoo insert + 1 hemp booster (or microfibre + hemp insert + hemp booster). He’s a very heavy-wetter. This combination has worked well over the past 12 months.
Hope that you’re all better now – you sounded quite ill! Remember, health is wealth, ok? 😉
Anyways, I’ve got an XL-sized Happy Hempys to let go if anyone’s interested. L-size is good enough for him.
Thank you, Kit. Yes, health is most important indeed. 🙂
Large Happy Hempys fits Vee fine, a bit short at the rise though.
Is the XL piece new or used? If new, what’s the rise?
my 4mths dd is about 7kg, do u think it is wise to buy the medium fleece cover ? Read reviews that this cover is very generous sizing wise. Thanks!
Hi Sabrina, thank you for your question.
The medium fleece covers fitted my boy well from 9-21 months old, at 10-12+kg. I only bought them when he outgrew his Drybees Fleece Pocket Diapers (reviewed here) at 9 months old. His body shape is short and chubby.
The sizing chart says:
Small (10-18 lb)/ (4.5-8.2kg)
Medium (15-28 lb)/ (6.8-12.7kg)
The sizing is generous indeed, which allows it to fit over thicker night cloth diapers.
4-6 months old is still a high growth period, potentially putting on 1kg a month. After 6 months old, baby becomes more active and growth rate slows down. I suggest you try getting a medium fleece cover to try on your dd. If it’s too loose, she’d definitely grow into it later. Then you can try getting a Small instead.
Welcome back Mievee, was missing u & ur post!
Cheers & hugs: Molly
Thank you very much, Molly!
Take care too. 🙂
