A Mother of 4
I Love To Eat, Cook, and feel positive about life
Hello, I’m Qiqi. I’m a web designer, eCommerce owner, a Singapore Parenting blogger and a Mother of 4.
Eldest in the family, born and grow up in Singapore, but spend almost half of my childhood in Taiwan. Due to my look, I’m always mistaken as a foreigner. It’s not a surprise since my mom is a Taiwanese, and I inherit most of my features from my Taiwanese aunt.
In 2010, my boyfriend (now hubby), proposed to me and I said YES. We met through our part-time job ~ Delifrance and with the help of our matchmaker (sort of) aka supervisor ~ Linus, we were together for almost 8 yrs before we tie a knot. Like a lot of couples, we been through lots of up and downs but I’m glad all this makes us stronger and better.
On Oct 2010, we had our ROM ceremony and Chinese Customary Wedding on Jan 2011, both held in Conrad Hotel.
Our First Born
In Nov 2011, Hubby and I welcome our 1st 爱的结晶, Yi He, Leann (“苡”“禾”为贵, Beautiful Angel). Born at weight 2.8kg, through normal delivery without epidural, she is fair like her daddy. She brings us lots of joy and laughter and because of her, I get to know a group of close and nice Nov group mommy friends. She’s a very active girl, like a tomboy actually, loves musical and enjoy eating. Her understanding, an independent character makes our parenthood easier and enjoyable, although her stubbornness makes me wants to pull hair.
Our 2nd Bundle of Joy
3 years later, we give Yi He a little sister, Xin He, Leila (“芯”平气“禾”, Dark Beauty, Lady Warrior). Born at 3.1kg, through normal delivery without epidural, exactly like her name, she’s tan like me. She’s a very calm baby, with not much of a temper, almost to an extent of “bo chap” aka heck-care attitude. She’s a happy baby, good with PR skills because she just smiles back to anyone who smiles at her.
In 2014, I started my own distribution company and distribute to various departmental stores and retailers. We grew rapidly but due to my inexperience in managing, high capital outlay, we closed the business in early 2019.
During that period, we are also trying for number 3, but due to stress and too focus on work, I had a few miscarriages and abortion.
Our 3rd Bundle of Joy
In July 2018, we are happy to have one more additional member to our family. It came unexpectedly because we almost give up trying for a baby and start giving/selling away all our baby stuff.
Bo Heng came to us as a blessing and also giving us strength to move on with our life while we experience failed business and coping with Yi He’s medical condition. His smiley character brightens up our life and makes me move on quickly, setting goals back into my life again.
Lastly, all this is not possible without the support of my family, siblings, friends and customers who have supported me.
