Happy 1st Month Phedre!

Baby

How time flies! It’s been one month since the birth of my Secondary School friend, Xiuyan’s 2nd daughter, Phedre.

Buying presents for girls are always so much easier than buying for boys! Remember just 2 weeks ago, my Primary School Friend Lianmeng celebrated his son’s full month? It was so tough for me to decide what to buy for his son, even though I have 2 of my own.

This time, I decided to prevent such headaches by calling Xiuyan up and ask what she wants for her girl. “Pretty Clothes!” she shouted. That was so super easy and so I went and got lots for Phedre. Clothes that she can wear from now till she is 1+. 

On top of that, I added one toy and one voucher so that the gift won’t look so clothy. Then get them all into the nice Winnie the Pooh carrier. I am actually quite satisfied with this pack. *wink*

With my own small pocket I wouldn’t be able to get this much, so all the above were shared between 2 other friends, Baolian and Juliana, and me! I’m glad I was the one assigned to buy all of this girly stuff, so fun!

Can you believe it – the limited stuff which I bought for Lianmeng’s son actually cost more than ALLLLLLL THIS! *eyes rolled*

Baby Bonus

Baby, Child, Parenting, Preschool

By now, I guess all Singaporean Mommies, or rather, Singaporean Babies who are eligible for the Baby Bonus Programme would have received the notice on the Change of Managing Agent for Baby Bonus .

From 1 August 2008, Mommies will have more choices, enjoy better returns and receive better services when the Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited (OCBC Bank) and the Standard Chartered Bank take over from DBS as new managing agents for the Baby Bonus Scheme.

The Option to Choose Managing Agent (for existing POSB CDA holders)
Each trustee of an existing POSB Children Development Account (CDA) will receive an option form from MCYS to choose the bank (OCBC Bank or Standard Chartered) to transfer the CDA. Mommy (trustee) need to indicate your choice and submit the form to MCYS by 30 June 2008.

I chose OCBC simply because it’s easily locatable….and because of the lunch box. Ooops! Typical Singaporean. Easily attracted to things that are free….*grin*

The divider on the top compartment is removable. Pretty nice. But I was a little disappointed. On the pamphlet given to all households, the picture looks wider but in actual fact its really quite longish. Ah ya, what can I expect from free stuff. But seriously, it’s a good-enough size for my dear Keatkeat to bring his morning tea snacks to school.

Now that there are 3 compartments (if the divider is in), my boy can have more variety for his little meal in school.

Which bank did you choose?
