Apple vs Pomelo

pomelo 5

Time has changed. At any gatherings, show me a kid without his/her tab and I’ll show you TEN other children WITH their gadget! Same goes with Ayden and my cousins’ toddlers at our recent CNY gathering. The tab is so incorporated into our lives that it seems almost impossible to get around without it.  Don’t get me wrong though. I am not against these gadgets as kids do learn a lot from it and it is actually […]

CNY Mall decoration: Pavilion

Pavilion CNY 2015

I used to wonder why people frequent the malls on the first day of a festival. Don’t they have relatives to visit? Don’t their relatives visit their home?  And then today, on the first day of Chinese New Year of the Goat, I ended up in Pavilion. We were in Seremban at my in-law’s house when my sister-in-law suggested for us to go to Pavilion. The reason being that my parents-in-law doesn’t go KL often […]

Easy DIY Yogurt Ice Lollies for kids

DIY Yogurt Lolly 4

Chinese New Year is just a day away. What that means is hot, hot days are waiting for us. I know every year at my in-law’s place, Ethan and I will keep eating ice-cream to cool us down as it can be pretty hot over there. This year, I am well prepared. Since we will be eating ice-cream like twice a day, I better make sure we eat something ‘healthier’ as I know Ayden will want […]

CNY Mall decoration: The Curve

The Curve Chinese New Year decor

The Curve’s Chinese New Year decor this year is an elaborate floating fishing village.  View from the first floor.  With real fish swimming around, it truly feels like a fishing village. I feel like catching those tilapia. Would have made a very delicious steamed fish dinner :P It is really a fishing village comes to live here. My kids have never been to a real floating village before and this made quite an impression to […]

Expectation vs Reality

Ice Kacang

Our entire Sunday was spent doing last minute shopping for the kids and Darling. As I had completed my CNY shopping way in advance, it is now their turn to shop. Shopping with two kids is darn tiring. One moment one of them will complain hungry. After eating, another will poo and then by the time I clean him up the big one will request to go to the washroom and by now the little […]

Door Insulating DIY

Door insulating tape diy 4

Since Darling was bitten by a centipede in our bedroom a couple of nights ago, I’ve been a little paranoid. I can’t sleep at night fearing another creepy crawly might climb up our bed. So when we went shopping today the first place I go is to Daiso to look for insulating tape for doors.  Thank goodness they have lots of it. RM5 for each strip of door insulating tape. I bought two first as […]

Centipede Bite

It was Friday the 13th. I was rushing through a project and only managed to go to bed at 2am. At 2.45am I jumped out of bed out of a sudden. I don’t know why or what woke me up but there I was, blur sotong thinking what had happened and then I saw Darling staring blankly at the wall with his left hand on his right arm.  I asked him what happened and our […]

Chinese New Year to me now is…

chinese new year diy angpow lanterns

When I was a child, I loved Chinese New Year. I always look forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year eventhough that means travelling 5-6 hours (I think) by bus with my family back to my hometown in Malacca. I still remember clearly waking up early in the morning to the appetising aroma of Maggi Chicken Instant Noodles. We always eat that before travelling. After having breakfast, I was always forced to eat ‘travelling pill’ […]

So there we were at the traffic light at 1 Utama yesterday evening when Darling spotted this heart shaped red light.  I told him a couple of days earlier that these red hearts has been spotted around the Klang Valley recently but he just brushed me off saying it must be some prank or something until he sees it with his own eyes and starts to wonder. I googled for more info and that’s when […]

Ayden’s Cold Milk Spa

Ayden milk bath spa

Ayden had bread for tea break today. After that he proceeded to the kitchen to play with coins. I was hungry so I got myself a bowl of cereals with milk. I sat down next to him and happily shared my cereals with him. He loves Honey Stars so he kept coming nearer to me for more. We just had like two scoops of cereals when he tugged my arm for more. I was holding […]
