Tiny Tots Inflatable Baby Bath

Inflatable Baby Bath and Baby Scale

My wife and I have launched a baby product’s online store called “Laydu – Baby Clothes and Products.” We are just starting out to test the waters with a couple of products, an inflatable baby bath and an electronic baby weighing scale. At the moment we are only selling in Singapore, but if you are in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand or the Philippines we could look at how to get the product to you.

The Tiny Tots inflatable baby bath has been a lot of safe fun for our first child. She can splash away in it (covering us with water!) without hurting herself on hard edges found in normal baby baths. It was also useful to get one for my wife’s parents who could use it when we visit and simply deflate it for storage afterwards. You could even take it when travelling on holiday if you are unsure about the hotel facilities.

Bear Themed Baby Weighing Scale

The electronic baby weighing scale was really useful when our child was having some trouble getting enough milk. The scale enabled us to monitor her weight before and after a feed to determine how much breast milk she had consumed.

Even if there are no problems with feeding it can just be fun to keep track of your baby’s weight. The scale is digital and can show the weight in pounds and kilos with sensitivity to 10 grams. It can even play music to help calm the baby.

For those interested in the technical side of things, I used WordPress with a plug-in called WooCommerce. This is different from the previous online store I built for my parents where we used the Marketpress plug-in. Overall the experience with WooCommerce is good so far, but I’ll have to see how it goes over time before I can make a good comparison with Marketpress.

If you are interested in the products please feel free to visit the site and purchase the products. We accept credit card payment through Paypal, as well as bank transfer to our HSBC account.



Rugby World Cup 2011 Final Singapore Match Time

The Rugby World Cup 2011 final match is on today (Sunday, October 23) at 16:00 in the Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Malaysia and Philippine time zone.

My predictions for this Rugby World Cup have been quite poor, but as a Kiwi I have to say that the All Blacks will win their 2nd Rugby World Cup with a confident win over France.

Go the All Blacks!



Rugby World Cup 2011 in High Definition

What a pleasant surprise it was today when I was surfing through the channels on mio TV to find the Rugby World Cup 2011 opening ceremony broadcast in high definition (HD) on channel 111 (3D) mio Stadium.

I had a look at Singtel’s mio TV site and they indeed confirm that they are providing HD coverage.

The Rugby World Cup– LIVE and Exclusive, 9 Sep
Brace yourselves. The toughest competition on the face of the earth is pounding its way onto mio TV. Catch all the bone-crunching action of the Rugby World Cup LIVE and exclusive in HD.

I was so happy when I confirmed that I was going to be able to see the Rugby World Cup 2011 matches on ESPN Star Sports that I forgot to check if there would be an HD channel! Anyway, now I know and thought I would share that with everyone.

That first match is over and New Zealand won quite comfortably, but Tonga could have done a lot better than the 41-10 score line suggests. A few critical errors and Tonga was punished in the first half, but they really lifted their game and made New Zealand look a bit ordinary in the second half.

If you want to make sure you don’t miss a match in HD you can use my list of Rugby World Cup 2011 match times for the Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong time zone.
