Ooh, cult chocolates!

I am not really the biggest chocolate chocolate type of fan. Chocolate incorporated into baked goods, yes. Chocolate sauce, yes. But for me to pick up a piece of chocolate truffle or praline, or break off a piece of chocolate bar, that sort of desire, would really be a rare sight.

Having said that, I don't know why I got all excited when I read that the first store to sell the full range of Valrhona chocolate, from nine different types of chocolate bars and assorted chocolate boxes, to more than 30 types of Valrhona pralines. Maybe reading a lot of such posts about all the various haute chocolate shops and their large range of products, each one with a cleverly-thought-out description, has somewhat whetted my own interest in finding out what exactly about those chocolatiers drive people crazy. I hope I don't go crazy too.... because I do not think I can maintain such a lifestyle!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
