Trudy & Teddy new boutique opening in One Utama

Ayden in top to toe Trudy & Teddy attire

I have always love Trudy & Teddy’s timeless classic European style with a touch of modernity. I like their fine workmanship and their designs are simply outstanding. I’ve been dressing Ethan up in Trudy & Teddy apparels since it was born in 2010. Ethan was three years old then. * Archive picture of Ethan (3 years old) in Trudy & Teddy top to toe. Imagine my delight when I saw that they will be opening […]

Post Holiday Blues

post holiday blues

Everyone needs a holiday after a holiday, don’t you agree? We had so much fun in Penang that we are not functioning well post holiday. Darling had to get back to work straight on Monday, pity that fella but I had it so hard; with piles and piles of dirty laundry and so much cleaning up to do. Even my blog posting has been quite messy as I don’t have the time to really sort […]

Hock Lok Siew Biscuit Trading

Hock Lok Siew Biscuit Trading 5

On our third day in Penang, we met up with Penang food blogger Ken of Ken Hunts Food. He drove us around for some food hunt and also to buy some local products. He stayed away from those branded shops that are so ‘touristy’ and expensive and brought us to Kedai Biskut Hock Lok Siew in the heart of Georgetown. The products here are way cheaper compared to those tourist trap shops.  HOCK LOK SIEW […]

WORLDFOODS Yellow Curry Recipe

WorldFoods Yellow Curry Paste Recipe3

I’ve mentioned numerous times that the long school holiday means being extra busy in the kitchen whipping out one pot wonders for the family. Why one pot? Because having a 15 months old toddler with me limits whatever time I can spend in the kitchen so I try to cook only fast and convenient food for them without compromising on the quality and nutrition of the food. One of my ‘speciality’ is this simple non-baked […]

Catch-up with an ex-classmate

Morganfield Gurney Paragon

One of the highlights of my Penang trip is to meet up an ex-classmate of mine whom I’ve not seen for almost 2 decades. Sometimes I wonder why people even bothered to make time to see me. You see, I’ve been giving him a hard time from the first day he found out I’ll be in Penang. He was so kind to initiate a meet up and also to try getting some other ex-classmates to […]

LOCK Your Car Doors At ALL TIMES

Always LOCK your car doors if you are waiting inside a stationary vehicle with the engine running. When we were in Penang, Darling parked our car at a petrol station and proceeded to get inside the store to buy bottled drinking water. Ethan was seated at the front passenger seat while I was nursing Ayden at the back. Luckily it is our habit to lock the doors each time the Daddy gets out of the […]

Christmas Decor: Suria KLCC

KLCC Christmas decor 2

I am surprised that KLCC did a great job with their Christmas decor this year. If every year they only put out giant Christmas trees, this year they have giant rocking horse and more.  Quite a lovely sight at KLCC. Beautiful Christmas tree with toy soldiers, gift boxes, rocking horse and everything Christmasy.  The giant rocking horse. Santa looks weird though. Haha. Overall this year’s decor is one of their better ones. Now let’s take […]

Christmas Decor: 1 Utama Shopping Centre

1U Christmas decor 3

My jaw dropped to the ground when I saw One Utama’s Christmas decor this year. Themed “A Rustic Woodland Christmas – Love & Joy” I was just speechless. Maybe I can share some pictures and you tell me what you see. Board animals. More animals from boards. And then I saw their Christmas tree and I just can’t take it any more. I left. I think it is better to check out other mall’s decor. Let’s […]

Takio Ikayaki

Takio Ikayaki

When we were in Berjaya Times Square a couple of weeks ago, we did not know what to eat. Then we saw this: People queuing at Takio Ikayaki kiosk. Should be good? Otherwise why would they queue and wait right?  I also remember having this 20% discount voucher in my bag so we went closer to the kiosk.  Then we took a peek and saw this:   Oh man! She’s cutting giant squid! My weakness! […]

The Big Bad Wolf Book Preview Sale

Big Bad Wolf Book Sale 9

Believe it or not, we’ve never been to a Big Bad Wolf book sale until today. I’ve always dreaded going to any sale; fearing the crowd,the queue and all. But then a couple of weeks ago I received an invitation to the preview of The Big Bad Wolf sale and decided to give it a try. It is a preview sale after all so it won’t be too crowded right?  These passes made their way […]

DIY Pacifier Holder

pacifier holder diy

Ayden doesn’t use pacifier but recently because he is teething (yes, his top two front teeth are finally making their appearance) he likes to bite on them a bit. He doesn’t use them long. Just a suckle or two, a couple of bites and that’s it. But this will repeat after an hour or whenever he feels the itch.  I got fed-up having to hand him the pacifier and take them away and give it […]
