My first PayPal purchase

To celebrate the end of my confinement, I decided to reward myself with these:

A Mama Patch raw silk ring sling in Autumn, nori smiley punchers and fork picks.

Not exactly things to pamper myself with, huh? Well, the ring sling will definitely come in handy to have my hands free even when Yan Yan wants to be carried. I figure I'll probably need it a lot in the next six weeks alone at home with her. As for the nori punchers, I've always thought of getting one but the stingy (I'd rather think of it as frugal) side of me always stop me from buying it. But I guess it'll be another good investment if I were to continue to pack bentos for Yiu Yiu (and for Yan Yan in the future). The relatively inexpensive fork picks are useful when I need to secure food tightly, when the usual food picks can't do the job.

Anyway, I didn't have to fork out money as they were paid with $$$ in my PayPal account earned from writing paid posts in the past. There's not much $$$ in my PayPal account, since there were very few opportunities which I could qualify for. It's been ages since I wrote a paid post, and I can probably forget about writing them, as even prolific bloggers and those with their own domain are finding opportunities hard to come by. Never mind, I'll just savour shopping away the remaining balance in my PayPal account, coz that's what a woman do best…haha.

Kittycat - have used it 2-3 times but still not very familiar yet. But it's certainly handy, or rather hands-free :-)

welcome to babywearing! Once master, you will surely enjoy and make good use of this ring sling and wear your baby as often as I do with my boys :)

Chinnee - slowly getting the hang of it. But mainly using it when we go out, not so much at home like you do.
