Wish you were in lovely weekend *hugs*
Just a lil bit of update for last 2 weeks:
My children love music & dancing *alhamdulillah*.
In all my years of teaching, I don’t think I’ve ever met a child that doesn’t love music, actually.
When I enrolled my latin dance class, I was thrilled to teach my lil kids too, though I had no real idea what we were about to start.
I had no doubt they’d enjoy it since it’s catchy, but that’s about it

Happy Friday beautiful mommies,
Wish you were in lovely moment
Today, love to share a lil update regarding my previous Latin Dance class *alhamdulillah*.
Guess what? Last week, I’ve moved from beginner class to advance class! *yippie*
Honestly, I just attended my 1st class in Advance Latino Dance class last week (after 2 times joinning Beginner Latino Dance class).
Why I heart dancing?
Dancing is an intellectual activity as it requires dancers to remember steps and sequences, which boosts brain power and improves memory.
Make-up before going to dance class
I love “Nude” lipgloss!
My new teacher (secretly asked me not to enclosed name or pics yet) is amazingly 50+ years old! *wohoo!*
I can’t believe myself either ^0^ Perfectly proofs that dance could makes your mind & body healthy
“Dance gets you into your body”, says Nancy Cassman, a dance/movement therapist and founder of Express Your Self, a dance and movement center in Boulder, Colo. “In our society, people sit at desks and on couches all the time, and we’ve become very brain-oriented,” she points out. “Dance bridges the gap between the brain and the body so that you tap into your physical, emotional, spiritual and mental being.”
I’ve learned 2 new moves, practicing choreography sets of “Bootylicious” by Miss Beyonce and learning to dance with partner!
Since last week till today, every night before sleep, the King a.k.a PaPa, generously helps me: be my dance partner to practice my dance moves. Thanks a lot darling *giggles*
My supportive husband and I practiced happily to get 5 routines ready daily. We were having such a great time dancing together and we really were like two peas in a pod.
Indeed, learning dance is like any other new skill, you must PRACTICE to be great. Even after your first class, you should practice the basic step until it becomes part of your muscle memory.
IMHO, beginners *like me* should practice their basics well before trying all the advanced moves, and intermediate and advanced dancers should work on great footwork (turn out and pointing), leg action, and turning techniques to improve their overall performance.

Gosh, love her sincerity *hugs!*
She reminds me on my beloved grandma.
These benefits include, not only learning new dance skills, but also the vast physical benefits of dance, living a more healthy lifestyle, losing weight, being around other people (dancers) who lead positive and healthy lifestyles, being artistic & creative, making new friends and networking.
Not only will you become fitter, but research shows you can lose weight, tone flabby muscles, get your heart rate up, boost your brain power and fight dementia
So what are you waiting for? Put on your dancing shoes, mommies.
You’ll love it, and your husband will love it even more! Physical closeness and looking into each other’s eyes : these things can boost intimacy, communication and desire.
Whether you dance in a class, with your kids, or alone in your living room, you’re having fun and being healthy. And, while you’re moving your arms and feet, you’re also moving your soul, because it’s hard to be sad when you’re dancing.
Gambatte ne mommies
Please do enjoy your holiday with your lil ones.
May God bless your family. Amin~

Good evening vogue mommies
How’s your breakfast today?
Alhamdulillah, my kids always make me breakfast : 4 times per week!
It’s the best breakfast moment ever because my kids made it just for me.
As a mother, I love nothing more than to hear the sound of my little kids trying to figure out if the French toast or pancake is cooked enough.
Or the sound of my children’s feet creeping up the steps with my husband delivering a tray of breakfast goodies on special day.
There is something so remarkable about that moment when they wait for me to taste my hot chocolate drinks, or take a bite out of my eggs. They look so proud of themselves and I’ll remember those breakfasts for the rest of my life *Insya-Allah*
Beaten – eggs & milk
French toast really was invented by French peasants who found a way to reuse their stale bread by dipping it in a delicious egg mixture and frying on a skillet.
KiruaMi-cHan’s in action *wee-hee*
ReiHi-cHan’s in action *yippie*
YunaFi-cHan’s in action *dee-dee*
Aww, this is so sweet!! They made this for me *tears* Thanks kiddies
For him, by him: KiruaMi-cHan ^0^
For her, by her: ReiHi-cHan ^-^
French toast suggested toppings: pure maple syrup, powdered sugar, creamed honey, cream cheese.
Suggested servings: fruit juices and steamed veggies (gosh, we love orange juices with steamed carrots & broccoli!)
Simple tips on “How to make Breakfast Fun and Easy” :
- Make breakfast a family occasion.
This is often the only time in the day when the whole family is together.
Normally, parents who eat breakfast set a good example, which their children are more likely to follow.
- Set up the breakfast table the night before to save time in the morning.
- Planning it with your child.
Make sure it’s healthy and yummy!
- Start them out with a light bite.
Perhaps juice, toast or a glass of milk.
- Stick to the basics.
Serve simple foods that are nutritious and quick and easy to prepare and eat in the morning.
This Sunday morning, why not let your children make breakfast for you?
Let’s try some easy-peasy menu mommies
May Allah swt blessed your lovely family. Amin~
