I started doing nagomi art in July 2021 when a friend introduced to me one day.

I started reading on nagomi and how it helps for our mental wellness and self care.

Being in a stressful environment, i reckon it is very important for self care, self love, and found that art therapy is really soothing to the mind, heart and soul.

PNA was founded by Mr Hosoya Norikatsu in 2002. He chose pastel as the medium to create beautiful, warm and gentle-toned artwork through simple but unique techniques.

It is accessible to anyone from the very young to young at heart. It is intended as an art form for ordinary people, where beautiful pieces can be created within 20mins at ease.

One need not be a skilled artist to enjoy the mange benefits it brings. These include self-fulfilment, self-satisfaction, self-affirmation, self-love, an uplifted sense of pride and confidence along with sheer joy.

The process of painting will calm one’s feelings and awaken hope in the hearts. One’s joy is multiples when the art form is shared with others.

    This is the blastocyst implantation of my 1st IVF. While thinking of the theme new creation. new life, I thought of this almost immediately as a cell is a possibility of a new life that can be growing inside of me. This image is drawn from a day 5 blastocyst.

    I may forget how the IVF journey after many years, this blastocyst may not continue to grow in me, but this moment, it remains as a memory I cherish.

    Whilst looking at my blastocyst to draw, I saw a little child in it.

    In my growing up days, mum was quite strict with me with what I could eat or drink. Paddle pop ice cream is one of the few ice cream I remembered eating.

    With the colours in paddle pop, it also helps brighten the mood whenever I’m down.

    One of the first Japanese song I’ve learnt back in my secondary days when a friend sang this song to me, I translated it as I did not understand Japanese. I loved the lyrics and it was one of my favourite song.

    We are all special and unique in our own way, just like no flower is the same as another. We humans blossomed and bloomed in our own unique way.

Sharings on my LO and my house purchases

Recommendation #5- Maymom flange

Wanna introduce you guys the maymom flange.

What I like about this is that it is possible to buy the flange to the correct size eg. 13mm/14mm/15mm

The normal flange that all pumps comes with is either 21mm/24mm/27mm which is too big for Asian women. Well, at least for me I’m only a 15mm.

It took me a few months pp to try and figure out all these. As ftm, I was noob in this field as I’ve never been exposed to all these before. I thought I was 24mm, until I was hospitalised and govt hospital gave me a 27mm and said that was my size. So I thought “ohhh! 24mm is wrong. Im a 27mm”. Purchased a set of 27mm from mummy market, only to realised that I had nipple tear from the 27mm.

Only after the 3rd month pp that I seek a professional help from a LC, then I realised I’m a 15-16mm. But at that point? I had already purchased 5 diff pumps.

So what did I do initially. I put a 15mm insert into one of the maymom flange I previously gotten.. but I recently got to find out that they do have actual sizes!!! Check out my video to see the difference!!! I really love it cos with the actual size flange, I really maximise all the liquid gold for my baby!!

If you’re a low supply mum like me, this is what you really will need.

Recommendation #3- baby high chair (stokke inspired)

The chair is made of quality solid wood and coated with non-toxic paint.

It’s easy to even get baby A to sit on it a few times to adjust the height.. that’s how sturdy it is.

In my video I installed the seats wrongly, but very easily rectified

Overall, this chair is sturdy and super affordable (especially when there’s vouchers and Shopee coins) 😉

Recommendation #2- Berry Quick Porridge

My daughter absolutely loves this porridge and finished the entire sample when we happened to chance upon it.

Do you know?
With no addictives or preservatives, this Berry quick porridge is suitable for infants around 8months old.

This Berry quick porridge is rich in Rice Berry - a hydro take rice that has a reddish black colour when raw, and turns purplish black when cooked.

Rice berry has the benefits:
• High in Omega-3
• Rich in Antioxidant
• Rich in Anthocyanin
•more fibre than white rice

Recommendation #1 - Wakodo Japan Pancake Mix

Wakodo Japan Pancake Mix for kids

It’s so easy to do and instructions were so clear. Just add the ratio of powder premix: water - 2:1

2 spoon of premix powder makes about 4 mini pancakes
