The Coastal Settlement

PA few friends met up for dinner recently at TCS. It was the first visit for everyone else except ourselves. We first visited a few years ago when it was relatively new. I could remember the beef pizza being delicious and everything else being quite average while prices seemed a bit pricy for the ulu location. 

This time, we ordered a few appetizers to share and a main each. Of the apps, portebello fries were the best and I'll recommend. But for $15, the serving of about 8-9 pieces of fries was quite puny.  

The truffle fries on the other hand, were disappointing. Unlike most truffle fries, there wasn't a whiff of that aromatic fungi at all, even when the fries were right in front of us. 

The nachos were ok. Nothing to shout about but made a nice snack for everyone.

The mains were a mixture of hits and misses. Both the man and I seemed to have the hits. Pleased with his burger and my roast chicken, we tucked in with gusto and finished everything despite the intimidating portions. 

The friends got the xo prawn pasta, fish and chips and beef pizza. None of them were really pleased with their choices and much leftovers. Oh well.

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!
