Guava Soup

Guava soup benefits

At 21 months old, Ayden is finally bored of porridge and mushy food. He likes to eat rice with soup these days. I’m busy looking for new soup recipes to add more varieties in his diet. I was first introduced to guava soup when I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner over CNY. It was my first time drinking guava soup and I must say that it is intriguingly delicious. It is unique, refreshing […]

Animal Kiddie Ride

Animal kiddy ride 1u big n small

Last weekend was Ayden’s first time riding on those plush animal kiddie ride. At first we let him ride together with Ethan… But he doesn’t enjoy it.  He doesn’t even like it and requested to be taken away from there. He wanted his own ride so we got him the smaller animal ride. And he loves it! Totally enjoying the experience.  And started going around chasing big bro Ethan.  I foresee us burning RM8 every […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Moist Chocolate Cake

Rice cooker Bake Moist Chocolate Cake

A friend said I am baking with a vengeance. Heh. It’s just that I am so excited to experiment with so many recipes out there to see which works and which doesn’t. This is my second attempt baking Moist Chocolate Cake. My first attempt failed miserably so I did not blog about it. It came out looking like a piece of belacan. It was so dense there wasn’t any space to breath in there. I […]

Being Socially Active

Mummy Peranakan

One of the biggest sacrifice a stay at home mom does is giving up her social life. When I first gave up my job to be a stay at home mother many years ago, the thing that hit me the hardest was the lack of adult human communication and interaction. The loneliness within can really drive me up the wall. I went through a dark period where I kind of hated everything around me as […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Marble Butter Cake

We are getting very comfortable baking using our rice cooker these days with the many successful cakes that we’ve baked. Today, I’m going to let my little 21 months old helper do most of the work because it is that easy :) We’ll be baking this beautiful and equally delicious Marble Butter Cake. It is actually similar to the butter cake we baked previously but nicer looking lah with the brown streaks :P Ingredients: 200g self […]

Ramadhan dinner preview: Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel

Lemang ketupat eastin

The holy month of Ramadan is commonly perceived to be a time of giving and blessing. It is also said to be the time for reflection and contemplation, for charity and compassion, and for friends and families to turn their thoughts to those less fortunate. For Darling who is in the marketing line, it is time to scout for the best Ramadan dinner spread to reward his business partners. We’ll start with Eastin Hotel’s buka […]

Not So Picky Eater

Ayden eating ayam goreng

One thing about Ethan is it’s very easy to feed him. Just get him chicken rice or noodles and he’s good. He loves spaghetti bolognese and will order that most of the time when we dined out. It’s either that or noodle soup lah. It’s easy to feed him BUT he only eats the same old thing every time. My spaghetti boy.. And now there are TWO! Ayden is following his big bro’s footsteps by […]

Rice Cooker Cakes : Butter Cake

Rice Cooker Bake Butter Cake 8

I baked butter cake using my rice cooker last week. This is by far the most successful cake baked using my rice cooker. The texture of the cake is exactly like those oven baked cakes except the top layer is pale and not brown. The amount of ingredients used makes it just perfect when it comes to the thickness of the cake. This is also the first cake (baked using my rice cooker) that requires […]

Fruit Salad for Pendidikan Moral

Apple for fruit salad

Last week Ethan came home with a simple instruction – to select a fruit to bring to school for a project in Pendidikan Moral this week. We told him to bring apples as we always have apples at home. I’m referring to the edible ones this time :P He informed his teacher he will be bringing apples and the teacher gave him another set of instructions – to peel and cut it into cubes and […]

Poolside BBQ Party

BakarlahBBQ rental 3

I attended a Poolside BBQ party today. Quite an interesting one because there are so much to do to keep ourselves occupied. The first thing that caught Ethan’s eyes is the Kids’ Jewelry Making Station by Kelvin Gems. He quickly ran to me saying he wanted to make me something. This boy, just earlier we had a heated argument and now he is dying to make me a jewelry. *Heart melt* He told me to […]

Easy DIY Snickers Ice Popsicle

Easy DIY Sneakers Ice Popsicles recipe 8

I have a Snickers bar sitting in my fridge for months. I did not allow the kids to eat it actually coz it’s too sweet. We had two. We got it during our stay in Aloft KL back in March. It came complimentary with the room. The kids ate one yet they can’t finish it so I did not let them eat this one. I was wondering what to do with it when I suddenly […]

DIY Wrapping Paper

DIY Wrapping Paper 8

Ethan will be celebrating Teacher’s Day in school today. He had no time to get gifts for his teachers so I helped him buy but I forgotten to get wrapping papers. I only realized we are out of wrapping paper after dinner and it is already too late to go out already. How? We made our own wrapping paper. First, I cut a heart shape from a piece of paper.  Then I placed another piece […]

A little bit of sunshine and fresh air

playground fun 3

It’s not easy being a stay at home mother. You’ll need strong mental health to survive. Staring at the 4 walls with never ending chores everyday can drive anyone crazy. I had it tough when I first gave up my job to be a SAHM but I am all good now. I know what to expect and my mind is ready for it. BUT I still have my down and crazy days especially on those […]

Weeks before Mother’s Day, Darling looked high and low for restaurants or hotels that offer unique Mother’s Day promotions. Most of the eateries offer the usual Mothers Eat For Free kind of promo but we came across Eastin Hotel’s Young Chef Competition in conjunction with Mother’s Day. Now knowing me, you’ll know that I always prioritize the kids before me so Darling knew this will be the PERFECT way to celebrate Mother’s Day and went […]
