[Media Invite] Cartoon Network - Halloween Movie Premieres + New Halloween Episodes

Our Saturday morning was spent at this stylish cooking studio - CulinaryOn Singapore, located in the heart of the CBD. This was my review of CulinaryOn on my previous visit and the second visit during a friend's son's birthday party.

With Halloween season approaching, we were invited by Cartoon Network Asia to attend a workshop and learn how to make Halloween Treats with a fun Cartoon Network Twist.

Today was our first attempt in making 3D bentos, not easy I must say, especially making it with kids. But I must say it makes a very good bonding session if you are thinking of roping in your child to make one, be sure to have alot of patience and for now I am keeping my fingers cross that Xav will not request for 3D bentos until I have more free time.

We created this on our own after the briefing.

Busy Little Hands

Guess which is whose ? No prize for guessing though.
And don't play play, today's lunch was peaceful, I did not give my regular dagger stares nor I need to ask anyone to "Eat fast and stop day dreaming !" Both Xav and Vera wiped out their bento lunch boxes made earlier in record breaking time!

We decorated the cupcakes with a step-by-step fondant assembling, our Power Puff Girls cupcakes as well as some fondant cookies.

Get ready to howl with laughter this Halloween with the non-scary, kid-friendly, Halloween Specials from the kids' favourite kids channel - Cartoon Network,  which is available in Singapore on Starhub TV Channel 316 and Singtel TV Channel 226.

DIY Incy Wincy Spider Costume

When Xav was in preschool, I used to be challended annually to come up with ideas for making lantern using recycled materials. This was the first time I was challenged to diy a costume ! So can I instantly call myself a costume designer ?

In Oct 2015, I went for a tutu making class and was glad that I can put what I learnt into use.

A post shared by Serene Seah (@xavvylicious) on

The easiest I can think of was making a spider costume since it has got to do with nursery rhymes characters and it shall be all black. Need ideas ? Go to Pinterest ! Loads of refernces there !

I bought some tulle from spotlight, three pairs of black socks from Daiso. Top and pants were Vera's very own. I decided to make half a tutu skirt just for the front to soften the look. Totally satisfied with the end result and missy loved it so much that she insisted to wear it to school and yes she boarded the bus with the costume on.

Pretty easy to get everything sew into place with some simple backstitches. Thankfully it's all black, it camouflaged my ugly stitches. What I did was to fill the socks with the mini styrofoam balls from my bean bag. Since we are planning to do away with it, so might as well utilize the foam balls. I stuffed it into the socks 3/4 full and sew up just right at where the foam balls were to prevent them from spilling out.

I used a white, thin ribbon, sew through the socks at the part where our heels will be covered, I tied a knot on the top and bottom to prevent the socks from shifting, if you can what I mean. The sewing of this part will allow all the "legs" to move if Vera raises her hands.

From the rear

Here's my cutesy, little spider !
