My review of "In The Night Garden" live show

This is post will be about my brief review of the "In the Night Garden" live show at The O2 in London! First of all, my 2 year old daughter adores this program which originated from Cbeebies

and I must say I too are amused by the cute characters of this programe

so Yes I may be biased in making this review! I can probably type what has happened from the moment we entered The O2 and the final moments of the show

Fashion, my other interest!

Apart from being passionate and devoted to my family,

my other interests are writing, blogging, dressing up,

putting outfits together,

accessorizing and anything to do with fashion.

As a full time mum, my daughter has kept me busy for awhile but now that my child is no longer a new born

this means I have a little time to spare on my other interests such as fashion.

How I lost my post-pregnancy weight

My arms, legs, ankles was HUGE whilst pregnant
I was at my heaviest when I was pregnant, weighting about 11 (70 kg) stone then straight after my daughter's birth, i only lost 5 kg.
my daughter's one month bday
The 5 kg I lost accounted for my daughters birth weight, water retention, placenta and sadly I also lost a considerable amount of blood during my C-section that I've been advised to get a blood transfusion. However, I kindly rejected it and opted for the iron tablets. First month after birth, I was completely home bound with my little one, recovering from my C-section surgery and looking after my child. My husby's mum fed me well and cooked me healthy chicken and ginger soup evey day.
just chicken and ginger soup without rice
Believe it or not, this was the only food I eat for the first month after birth. I have tried my hardest not to give in to eating carbohydrates such as rice, bread, potatoes and cakes. Even before I got pregnant I dont usually eat that much carbs apart from cakes so it wasn't that hard for me to stick with no carbs diet besides the chicken and ginger soup was soo delicious and satisfying that most of the time I was left feeling full. Although, I may have eaten some fruits and some seafood but not that much.


As a first time mum, my main concern is raising my child the best way I can. As I've mentioned in my earlier post, I often worry whether my parenting skills are good enough to make sure my bubba grows gracefully but I have come to realize that maternal instincts often come natural and that its better to spend your time cherishing your child's childhood than worrying too much. After all my bubba has learnt so much already in the past two years of her life so I must be doing something right. She has learnt nursery songs such as 'The Alphabet Song', 'Twinkle little star' etc ; bubba has also learnt to count and recognize numbers and letters; she is also already potty trained, she's learnt shapes, colours and many more. My little bubba continues to amaze me everyday!

She has an intuitive mind, loves fairy tale stories, princesses, songs, cuddless and so on. My maternal instincts always kicks in when needed, I'd know when bubba would want to nap even without a watch in my hand, I'd know when she'd want to eat and I'd know when she's tired. Although, there are times when I have to convince bubba to want certain things such as eating vegetables and fruits. Hence, my maternal instincts have also taught me to not always give bubba what she wants because what she want may not be that good for her. When bubba was born I didn't think that time would fly by soo fast, it's as if I've blinked and here she is 2 years old and about to turn 3 towards the end of this year. Sometimes I still see her as a little baby, crawling towards me for a cuddle and as much as I'd want my child to grow beautifully--still a part of me wants her to remain a baby.
