Mama Wants This

Meet Alison, a Malaysian mom with a lot of ideas, recipes and photos to share. Our featured blogger today is Mama Wants This!
Mama Wants This

Here’s a little about Alison:

Hi! I’m Alison, a Malaysian stay-at-home mother of a two-year old boy, with another on the way (due early May!). My life is reigned by a child half my height, but twice my wit (how is it that he gets me to carry him places but is happy to walk with his Dad?), my love of baked goods (I share – recipes, that is), an uncontrollable urge to write (hence, the blog) and an unquenchable thirst for taking photos (hello Project 365, or is it 366 this year?).

Here are some of Alison’s favorite posts:

A look into what makes Alison who she is in Where I’m From.

What Motherhood Isn’t is a fine read about stopping the mommy wars.

What girls need to know about beauty in A Letter to All Girls.

Check in here with a brief comment, and then head to Alison’s to help her celebrate her feature day!

  11. As Allison’s new best friend, I felt I needed to stop over here. Okay, she actually didn’t call me her “new best friend”, but I’m sure that I am.
    I stopped over to her site a couple of weeks ago just as she was going on break. I didn’t take it personally though. ha!
    So now, it’s my mission to discover all that I can about this Wonder Woman. And maybe end up being her best friend in the end. You never know! Odder things have happened.
    Allison’s Friend, m.

  12. I’ve never met Allison until today so looking forward to the visit. And oh my gosh – her little guy is so very adorable…..those eyes! He’d reign any mom’s life!

  18. I love Alison.

    I’m fond of international blogs…I like to read and learn about life outside of the US. This woman here is something very special, she’s one in a million. I don’t know how she is able to support so many and make everyone feel like they’re her favorite…but she somehow does. And she does it all with a genuine love for blogging, and others.

    She is a must for following.

    Happy SITS day, wonderful Alison.

  19. Your son is beautiful! Those eyes! My best friend lived in Malaysia for several years and loved it, sounds like an amazing place to be.
