Gong Xi Fa Cai

Honey Lokam

Thank goodness Chinese New Year is only celebrated once a year. It is so tiring to prepare for CNY (this coming from me who doesn’t even cook for the reunion dinner). We tried to shop for clothes a month in advance but it was so difficult with the two boys tagging along. They always got distracted by their surroundings especially the Lion Dance performances. This year we managed to catch the Lion Dance for more […]

Oriental Oasis @ Arabian Bay Resort, BGRC

I was not aware that there is a Halal Chinese restaurant in Bukit Gambang Resort City. We stayed in Arabian Resort and had breakfast at their Coffee House yet I did not notice that there is this Oriental Oasis just next to it until on the second day and we really wanted to dine here. Oriental Oasis, Arabian Resort. We had just completed our ATV Safari Ride in the hot afternoon sun so it was very […]

Can You Make An Egg Stand?

If you never got your eggs to stand before, today is a good day to try. Egg balancing has been connected with Lichun, the solar term beginning of Chinese spring (春) though I heard that it is possible to make egg stand any other day of the year. It started with successfully making an egg stand. And then there are 6. No glue were used in the making of these standing eggs but what is even more amazing is…  We managed […]

Ayden’s First Appearance in the Newspaper

The Star Metro Central Lou Sang feature

Ayden finally got his small break and appeared in the newspaper together with the Daddy and big brother Ethan – The Star Metro Central on the 2 February 2016 to be exact. The article doesn’t have anything to do with him though :P We were having a Chinese New Year Lou Sang dinner preview at Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur and were tossing to prosperity when the photographer caught this shot. I was no […]

DIY Chinese New Year Angpow Basket

Still it is not too late to make some DIY CNY decor using past year’s ang pow packets.  This is the first time I am making a basket using red packets.  Chinese New Year Ang Pow Basket  I used 6 red packets for the basket + 12 red packets for the decor + 6 gold packets for […]

Vanity Kitchen Layer Cake

I received a message from Micheele from Vanity Kitchen recently saying her bakery specialises in making Indonesian Layer Cakes (Kek Lapis Legit) and other Indonesian treats in Kuala Lumpur and asked if I would like to sample some of her cakes. I checked out their FB Page and was more keen on their pineapple tarts actually as we always purchase pineapple tarts in bulk this time of the year as gifts for Darling’s business acquaintances. I […]

Feeling Appreciated

Last December, we received a lovely Christmas Fruit Cake from Dorsett Grand Subang.  It is always nice to receive anything in a cake box as I super love cakes and cookies.  This Ayden just can’t wait till we get home and insisted to open it there and then but I managed to bring him a little further from the crowd before letting him open the cake box :D We spent the entire December eating this […]

S.E.A Aquarium, Sentosa Singapore

We’ve been to Singapore numerous times but have never been to their S.E.A Aquarium until last week. Our priority is always Universal Studio Singapore first and often by the time we are done with USS, we won’t have time for the aquarium anymore. We almost missed the aquarium again last weekend as we went to USS again as usual but this time we made sure to leave a couple of hours earlier so we can […]

Chinese New Year Decorations @ Changi Airport, Singapore

We went to the airport early the other day so we had a lot of time to kill before boarding. We were at T2 @ Changi Airport and there are many cute monkeys to welcome the Lunar New Year.  These monkeys are so cute and cheerful. Ayden kept asking me how come these monkeys eat PAU and not bananas. Darling told him those are not pau but peach. Is it? I thought those are birthday […]

Wireless Printing with HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3635 All-in-One Printer

The recent year end school holidays was very good for us. We managed to visit quite a number of places for short vacations. Since I have kids, I always opt to travel nearby. I prefer to take short and near vacations rather than travelling far for a stretch of time as the kids get tired easily. Ayden is already 2 years old this time when we travelled and he remembers much more things compared to […]

Ayden’s First Time Flying

Flying firefly

Last Saturday was Ayden’s first time flying. We flew to Singapore. We took Firefly from Subang to Singapore and return with Malaysia Airlines to KLIA. I prefer flying from Subang airport. It’s nearer to our house. We do not need to waste too much time travelling on the road. More over, the cab fee is definitely cheaper but we had no choice, we had to take MH home as there are no more flights from […]

Homegrown Spring Onion in Milk Cartons

growing spring onion in milk carton

Growing spring onion is relatively easy. You don’t need rocket science to do it.  Chances are some of the onions in your kitchen would have sprouted anyway so all you need to do is place them on the soil to grow further.  As usual, I used milk cartons to grow my greens. This two big onions represents Mummy and Daddy (according to the cheeky Ayden). The boys planted little onions for their own collection.  We placed the […]

How to Insert Nuffnang Mobile Ads into My Blog

how to insert Nuffnang Mobile ad into my blog

A couple of days ago, I received an email from Nuffnang regarding their mobile ads. I’m not too sure if this is new or what but I do know that I have not inserted any NN mobile ads in my blog prior to this.  Looking at how much we are spending time on our mobile instead of the PC, I decided to add the mobile ads into my blog. I’m a noob when it comes to […]
