Echo is $40 off, only $139 now

Echo is on sales now for $139, it’s $40 off. My husband pre-ordered the Amazon Echo before it came out, it is so convenience I want one in every room in my house. I found myself using it so many times a day and trying to use it in a room that didn’t have one, I ended up ordering another one after we used it for a week. As a busy mom, I am constantly checking what time it is for cooking, school pick up and various reasons, Echo really helps out me out. I can just say out loud what remainders, timers and alarms I want, it answers me instantly and gets it done. For all the “what time is it?”, “how the weather today?” or “set a 10 minutes timer” I ask Echo a day, it already  worth the money, it also works great as a bluetooth speaker too. My girls love it so much and they ask Echo to play background music and songs to dance and sing along all the time.


I would love to get one for every room and it is possible now, they have a cheaper version “Dot“, you probably want a speaker to go with it for better sound quality, but it can work on its own since it does have speaker built-in. We just ordered two of them for the girls’ room as alarm clock and let them listen to music when they read and clean their room.

I am also welcoming the new command “Echo” instead of just “Amazon” or “Alexia“, which were the only two wake words when it came out. We said those two words a lot in the house since we buy most of our stuff from Amazon and my daughter name is so closed to “Alexia” which wake the machine when it is not needed. A further improvement is the users can set up their own wake work to activate the machine.

愛上鞋子

上周二,一家人去看大公主的體操表演,然後一起去吃午餐,為肥仔爸爸補祝生日飯,再到附近的商場閒逛.

3年沒有踏足這個商場,有很多店舖都遷出,但又新增了好幾間親子活動場所,很好玩似的,連爸爸媽媽也很想找個機會試試.隨便逛逛,卻意外找到媽媽一直想買,但又不捨得買的跑鞋.小公主們都買到好幾對新鞋子,都是精明眼爸爸找到的好鞋子.恐怕我這個愛手袋愛廚具的女人仔,站在愛鞋子的邊緣,好危險啊!

生日聖誔禮物2013

今年的聖誔節,肥仔爸爸以廚房用品為主題買禮物給媽媽作聖誔和生日禮物。媽媽自己揀一份,選了Cusinart多用途蒸焗爐;其餘的都是神秘禮物。二公主愛媽媽心切,不忍看到左想右想、連續猜數十次仍然估錯的可憐媽媽,偷偷地告知兩份神秘禮物,哈哈。媽媽自行把盒子左右搖動,又估中了2份,最後只有3份猜不到,好好玩(雖然見到個盒無得拆好折磨媽媽,皆因擁有一顆極強烈的好奇心)。肥仔爸爸送的禮物全部很合心意,因為他知道媽媽想要甚麼但又遲遲不捨得買,而且今次送禮之餘又可以順道取笑媽媽,樂透了足足10多天,看著媽媽抓狂地勁猜卻又猜不中,他就大笑一輪,好可惡呢!

這是爸爸送給媽媽的廚房主題聖誔和生日禮物,包括:Lodge Cast Iron Loaf Pan, Lodge Cast Iron 17-inch Pan, Staub 1-Quart Teapot, Doctor Who Mug, OXO Scraper & Chopper, Nordic Ware Bundt Pan 和 Cuisinart C300 Multi-purpose Steam and Bake Oven.DSC_0002 Continue reading

小公主的聖誔禮物-2013

一年一度的聖誔節又到,小公主們都長大了,連3歲的晴晴也知道聖誔老人會送禮物給乖孩子,聖誕臨近,兩姐妹越見乖巧,比平日更勤力幫忙做家務。平安夜,她們第一次爭相上床睡覺,連媽媽想多給一個擁抱也被催促離開睡房。大公主說:「媽媽,沒有時間來多一個擁抱,聖誔老人快來了,我們要趕快睡覺呢!」真的好好笑,父母忍著笑衝下樓,然後大笑一餐。

看來她們努力做乖女的苦心沒有白費,聖誔老人真的夜訪家中,留下很多禮物給她們呢!CAM00175 Continue reading

Tiffany黑框眼鏡

數星期前,媽媽的鈦金屬眼鏡框又再變形,差點截斷。一直在等肥仔爸爸的10天聖誔假,星期五晚終於去了配眼鏡,趁年尾前花掉已預支的保險餘額。媽媽以往一直選用無框眼鏡,選鈦金屬也因為它據說較耐用,但結果卻兩次截斷,這是其他眼鏡從未試過的,所以今次決定試新款式和轉用粗框架。

全家人陪媽媽齊齊揀眼鏡,最後眾人一致通過,挑選了這款新眼鏡框。職員說只需一小時即可取眼鏡,於是一家人齊齊去行逛街等取新眼鏡。IMG_20131220_224159 Continue reading
