Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant

It's better late than never, so Happy New Year to all!

On New Year Eve, the boss rounded everyone who was in the office to go for a nice looong lunch at Brotzeit. To him, the draw was not exactly the food but rather, happy hour prices on beer so we could all drink ourselves silly before evening sets in.

I was not too enthusiastic initially. To a non-meat eater, a German just screams: porky, porky!
But ah, in the name of team spirit and camaraderie, I went and was pleasantly surprised that German food is beyond just the pig.

It is difficult to go wrong with pizza and I enjoyed the grilled vegetable fladen. "Fladen", for your information, is Brotzeit's interpretation on the Italian dish. The crust was not exactly paper-thin but it was definitely thin enough to be brittle-crunchy, like a biscuit.

To the rest of the group, the fladen was merely an appetizer. They were looking forward to the famous dishes of German pork knuckles and sausages. Both came with side dishes of sauerkraut, pickles and potato salad. I tasted the sauerkraut and felt it had been adapted to suit local taste as it was not at all sour.

There were also a couple of salads to cut all that grease above. Each was a big enough portion to be a main dish. Both salads - the mixed seafood and grilled tuna - were good, but I prefered the latter for its anchovies and ample slices of half-raw tuna, tossed simply with a vinegrette dressing.

We had fun and before we knew it, our 3-hour lunch session was up. I am glad I went and now, I don't feel so averse to German restaurants in future.

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!

[Mommy Post] Accidental Booster Alert!

If you are a breastfeeding mommy or pumping mommy, you will understand when you find a milk booster, it's like striking lottery, right?
So my hub has actually been drinking this V-Soy multigrain for quite some time, so it has a regular appearance in our fridge.  I tried it but found it to be too sweet on so I never drank it after.

One fine day, I had a small play date at my place, and I served this drink to the mommies (because all rejected my first beverage of choice - coffee) to them.  One of them reported that she had higher output and that struck up a lot of other mommies' interest to try (including myself!).  Glad to report, it does help me, but not exponentially as I still don't take a lot of it, just a small cup.   What a small cup did for me - I take a shorter time to pump the same volume and at sometimes I do get about 10-15ml more.  I reckon if I do drink a bigger cup of it, it would be even better?  But no, I didn't choose to do that because it is very cal…
