Peek-a-boo Saloon, The Curve

For months we were looking for a place to cut Johnelle's hair. So, when he turned 6 months old, his Aunty Shini recommended Peek-a-boo and Batu Caves Indian barbers. Since we both have no idea how to get to Batu caves, we decided to go to Peek-a-boo at The Curve. 

Here, we met Reese who did Johnelle's hair. Well, it was just to bald it. We got our own room, she bald him and cut my hair and gave us both hairwashes. Mine only costs about RM80 and for the little one, it's RM30. 

He didn't cry, in fact, he was more interested in the shaver. Unlike some places where parents complained that the shaver caused their baby's head to have red dots, here. she was very clean, the cut was perfect and even the hubby that is so particular found nothing to complain about. 

It was a great experience for us and we highly recommend this place. Since I was in the room with the little one while she was cutting my hair, I got to breastfeed him while having a haircut! That's a first! But, it makes it less stressful and now, it's my go-to saloon.

Beaba SOLO

From my last post, I was super excited to get my Beaba at a steal! In fact, I got more Beaba stuff from Applecrumby (BEABA) I highly recommend that you get all your Beaba stuff from Applecrumby because it's 20% off! You really cannot get Beaba any cheaper.

I got 2 different types of spoons, all sort of Beaba containers/portions. I'm OCD, EVERYTHING has to be from Beaba!

 I really wanted to feed my baby natural and pure food. What better way than to prepare my own food using the Beaba Solo? It's a 4-in-1 appliance where it can steam, defrost, puree and when you put the frozen puree into the Beaba portions container, you can just drop it into the Solo to defrost!

For #johnellejr's first food, I made pureed Avocado with Breastmilk and he seems to LOVE it!! 

I also LOVE the silicone multiportion. Unlike those cheaper recommendations by other moms, I hated using icecube trays. It's so difficult to remove. Some moms suggested running water by the side of the tray to make it easier to remove but... ANYWAYS, I got this for RM90 and I love it!

My Beaba is seriously my best friend, I'm going to steam and puree some organic pumpkin tomorrow and I'm on the lookout for squash. Can't seem to find any. 

Working and preparing my baby's stuff has never been easier. My Beaba does everything for me, steam, defrost, puree and even cook porridge/pasta for me.
