One blink of an eye and 2017 is over! I felt that I just wrote this bye bye post for 2016 and it’s already time to bid goodbye to even 2017. Time flies faster than a spaceship.

On a personal front last year was quite challenging. Health scares of loved ones and my own, maddening flow of daily stuff that was going out of hands and true realization of that quote – “Man proposes, God disposes”! Sigh. But lemme sound positive and say:

ONE

After all, you can’t have all the hits, there will be misses too. Just that in 2017, there were more misses. 

Sunshine came in the form of RainbowDiaries.com in 2017 which kept my spirits up and of course, my lovely kids and hubby.Gratitude to this blog baby and my babies!

Attended some talk-of-the-town events as a media, got associated with theAsianparent as a TAPFluencer, won a few accolades for all the hard work and multi-tasking this mom does for RainbowDiaries.

Lemme summarize the year that’s gone by and how was it for RainbowDiaries.


Noble causes and community initiatives…

Charitable causes is something that I would like to do more of in 2018. We MUST contribute our bit to the society.

Exploring Singapore’s yummiest spots as a Food Blogger

Who doesn’t love food? RainbowDiaries is about sharing and caring…Visited some cool restaurants, cafes in 2017 and ate some yummy food that made our tummy happy…

🥞🥞🥞 That twinkle in the eye amd can't-wait-any-more moment when you see something as delicious as this Red Velvet Matcha Lava Cookie with Apple Crumble Ice Cream that we ate the other day at Creamery – Boutique Ice Creams… 🥞🥞🥞 Simply loved this cozy place which kept springing many "slurp"rises. Like that Whisky Lava Cookie in the second pic. Fret not, it's mild enough even for teetotalers. We also had some refreshing teas that were perfect to perk up any mood. 🍵🍵🍵 By the way, Creamery is an interesting joint to visit where you get taste hand-made, fresh ice creams that are not overly sweet or heavy and where the flavours are quite unique like bread toast ice cream that my daughter loved. One of the healthiest treats we have ever tried 🍧🍧🍧 The place is happening and I saw many people enjoying their evening here. Don't forget to read the wall full of testimonials from happy foodies. Did I tell you that Red Velvet Matcha Lava cookie and Whisky Lava Cookie are specially introduced to make your Christmas even more fun!!! 🌲🌲🌲 Merry Creamery Christmas folks! . . #creamerysg #creamery #boutiqueicecream #christmasspecial #healthytreats #redvelvetmatchalava #lavacake

and tried to move my body though I still have such a long way to go…

Woah!!! I didn't know that my body can move like this…almost did cart-wheel, roll-overs, running, circuit training – all in the span of an hour. This high-impact exercise left me sweaty, panting but happy 💕 . Thanks @famasg for making me aware of the flexibility of my own body which I had thought to be lost. . While I was working out, boy was learning basics of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and he thoroughly enjoyed practicing this martial art. So good this place where parents can workout and simultaneously monitor kids who themselves are picking up BJJ. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 . Our Trainers were great – patient, motivating and quickly customising the exercise if we couldn't do it at first. . 👌🏻👊🏻 F for Fun, F for Fit, F for FaMA 👊🏻👌🏻 #fama #famasg #fitness #martialarts #brazilianjiujitsu #jiujitsu #kidsmartialarts #rainbowdiaries #sglifestyleblogger #sgblogger #sgparentbloggers #sporemombloggers #sgparents #sgkids #workout #stayfit #movebody #highimpact #circuittraining #skipping #running #yoga #media #mediainvite

took Dove Hair tie challenge…

and Put Sally Hansen on my nails.

When life gives you lemons, you make Sally Hansen moment out of it!!! 💃 Not every time things go as planned, not all days are sunny and happy…In such cases, all I do is add a pop of color to my nails. 💅🏻 Easy to use from the comfort of your home, the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is something I totally rely on. Just apply 2 coats and add top coat. Wait for it to dry and you are ready to rock with this gel nail polish 💅🏻 I don't have to worry because it's chip resistant and the shine will be on upto 14 days. Also removing it is so simple with nail paint remover ⭐️ Busy working mom like me doesn't get too much time to go to nail salons so Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is the next best thing for me. You don't have to be a pro to apply it, just apply it evenly without smudging and add glam to your nails. Oh yes, it's Gel and you still don't need UV light for it. 💕 There are so many shades to choose from. In this pic, I am wearing Sally Hansen Miracle Gel color number 359 Pretty Piggy and this Color goes well with office wear as well as causal wear. Subtle yet catchy! #sallyhansensg #sallystyle #sp

But when it comes to photos, my “soft-copy love” starts dwindling. 📚📚 I have depended way too many times on my phone and laptops when it comes to storing my photos and bang! either I have lost the photos or the laptop has crashed and so on.
