DIY Ash Ketchum Pokemon Costume

Halloween is fast approaching and when I asked my son what he wanted to be this year, he firmly said: Ash Ketchum from Pokemon. He and his dad love playing Pokémon Go until now and I can't believe he practically knows all the names of the different Pokémons and their evolutions!

Vancouver Vacation: Once Upon A Time in Storybrooke

Have you seen the show Once Upon A Time? In the story, the Evil Queen banishes every fairy tale character we’ve ever known to the sleepy town of Storybrooke, Maine. But in reality, they film the show in Vancouver, Canada!

Storybrooke is actually the quaint neighbourhood of Steveston which I blogged about HERE.

Most of the filming takes place here at Moncton Street. I was really excited to see the Storybrooke Library behind me, which is shown a lot in the show.

When the film crew is shooting here, they change the signs of the real businesses like this POSH! store which transforms into Mr. Gold's.

But there are some establishments that keep their Storybrooke signages all year-round, like Romania Country Bread which has become Storybrooke Country Bread.

And of course, there's lots of Once Upon a Time merchandise to be found at the Visitor Centre too.

It was such a treat to walk through this village being a fan of the show. It would have been better if they were actually filming though! But whether you watch this show or not, the place is still lovely to visit, with all the quaint boutiques and many restaurants to choose from.

The importance of a bedtime routine from Johnson's Baby

Mothers all around the world share a similar challenge: getting their babies to sleep and stay sleeping. Studies indicate that 20-30 percent of babies experience sleep problems, including difficulty in falling asleep and sleeping through the night. This does not only cause problems for mothers, but also impacts the healthy development of their babies.

Va Bene Pasta Deli in BGC

Had dinner with my friends about 2 weeks ago at Va Bene Pasta Deli in BGC. My BFF Pier was in town from Singapore and she was craving for some Italian food. She's half-Italian btw, so let's see if Va Bene passed her expectations. ;p

Vancouver Vacation: Shopping heaven at HomeSense

Shopping for home decor has got to be my favorite (next to clothes of course). And during our trip to Vancouver Canada, I stumbled upon a motherload of fabulous finds at HomeSense!
