Dutch Colony Coffee

Rare for the Man to pay enough attention on food he ate and remembered enough to recommend to me. The Red Velvet Cake from Dutch Colony Coffee was an example of such a rare occasion that we had to go back again so I could try.

As you can see, the cake is not the typical red-food-dye-super-red cake. Instead, it was leaning between a brown and maroon shade. Taste-wise the cocoa was definitely present, and overall not too sweet. The thin layer of cream cheese frosting was just sufficient to sweeten and not overload.

The coffee was pretty decent.

On another occasion, I wanted coffee and he wanted cake, no, make that two. Peanut butter chocolate cake was much too moist and stodgey, and the lemon pound cake was very average, a bit dry on the sides that didn't get a soaking of syrup.

I love the pretty cupcake plate though. Nice thought to use unusual serving ware :)

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!
