This commercial really touched my heart and I thought I would share it here on this blog. I love this quote:
" In the end, it's these small things that you remember. The little imperfections that make them perfect for you. So to my beautiful children, I hope that one day you too find yourselves life partners who are as beautifully imperfect as your father was to me..."

It has been a hectic week for us at Pupsik Studio! With much excitement, we are happy to announce that our new pouch designs have arrived! Not only do we have more colours and designs this time, we are also introducing reversible ones for those of you who like having 2 pouches in 1!
While design aesthetics have always been important to us at Pupsik Studio, we never compromise on other important aspects such as safety, cost and comfort. All our pouches and made from special durable fabric with a slight stretch and triple-stitched together with one of the strongest and best quality thread available in the market. So fussy we are about the safety of our pouches that we actually sent them to be tested by an internationally certified professional body. Needless to say, our pouches passed with flying colours and has been proven to be able to carry weights up to 20kg without any visible signs of stress.
Stylish and sleek, our custom sizing also means that you don't have to mess with excess fabric or rings and buckles. When you don't need the pouch, all you have to do is roll it up in a small bundle to fit into your handbag. There is no other type of baby carrier with such a compact design that allows you to do this!

1. Make predictable routines part of your toddler's day.
2. Give regular healthy snacks to keep blood sugar steady.
3. Offer limited choices -- two to three options -- to your toddler (for example, "Do you want apple juice or orange juice in your sippy cup?").
4. Set limits (but expect him to test them).
5. Provide a safe, toddler-proofed environment for him.

I am growing up well and have hit the birth weight of a 1 year old although I am only 4+ months.
My che che loves to show her love for me when the camera is rolling. However, she does hit and bite me occassionally when no one is looking. Anyway, I believe she loves me deep down inside.
More pics of us can be found here and here.

I continued to notice a significant difference to my sensitive and easily dehydrated skin (too much air conditioning!) after trying a few other products from their range for dry skin (including the Antioxidant Hydrating Mask and the Antioxidant Hydrating Cream). I would highly recommend Henry Tianus to any person looking for a good skincare range.

I have been looking around for great looking onesies for our online store for the longest time when my prayers were answered by Belle & Dean. They had everything I was looking for in a cotton onesie. Comfort, design, versatility and affordability.
Made from organic cotton that is unbleached and undyed, these 100% organic cotton onesies are suitable for both boys and girls from newborn-24mths throughout the year. All Belle & Dean clothes are designed in-house. Their special prints, mostly of endangered animals and plants, are hand-drawn by Belle & Dean's co-founder, Issy, and screen printed by hand with environmentally friendly water-based ink to give a wonderfully soft and subtle finish.
Pupsik Studio is proud to retail Belle & Dean's most popular line of organic onesie at our online store here. Do feel free to shop around for more designs available in our store and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this product!

Despite it being too tight (it's meant for me, you see! :p).
We get stares one too many,
But he says, "Let it be".
So we go romping about town,
With Raeann snug in our pouch.
Like a joey safe and sound.
That's why we love Pupsik,Warm and pretty and so lovely!
Our third winner is from Josie Quak carrying Jey. Josie actually took the time to submit her pictures in the form of a collage to share how the pouch has been a part of Jey's life! The collage is lovingly entitled "Pouch Story".

Clothkits make it easy for you to make beautiful quality, well designed clothes without the fuss of paper patterns. All the cutting lines are printed directly on the fabric in a simple format that means even the inexperienced can make garments with ease. In addition to the fabric, their kits contain all you need to complete the project - thread, buttons (or any other necessary haberdashery, and of course well illustrated instructions to guide you through the project.
(Below) Tata! What the finished product should look like.
And if you really cannot handle it, you can simply get it ready off the shelf with the click of your mouse. Neat!
