Sri Kamala Vilas

It was a really spontaneous decision to alight at Little India with the intention of transferring to the NEL train. But one thing led to another and I soon found myself facing Sri Kamala Vilas restaurant. I found the name familiar, and recalled reading some recommendations on their thosai. Despite my initial reservation about being a minority once I enter the coffeeshop, I decided it was about time I broke my dry spell from thosai, a typical South Indian crepe, made from a fermented mixture of ground rice and beans.

plain thosai ($1.50)

Very quickly, a freshly prepared and ginormous piece of thosai plated on a piece of banana leaf was served. Another guy followed behind with metal pails containing different side items. I got a coconut chutney that I didn't care too much for, a coconut and chili sambar that was pretty average and lastly, a watery vegetable sambar that was surprisingly my favourite. It was tasty and flavourful despite its appearance and I particularly loved biting into bits of mustard seeds. Its watery consistency also allowed the thosai to soak it up real good.

I loved the thosai's crispy parts on the edges and despite the large appearance, the crepe was not heavy at all. A plus point was that it was not too sour either. This is definitely one thosai I would gladly stain my fingers for again.

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…
