Gathering with my former schoolmates

Today’s post is quite backdated. It was dated way back to the 4th day of Hari Raya this year.  This is the story… I have an active Whatsapp group of my former schoolmates. Not of the entire school but about 52 of us. There used to be more but some members left because the group is too noisy for their phone. They claimed that their battery drained quickly because of our never ending chats. We […]

Big Prawn Nasi Lemak Lunch

Both Ethan and his father were born a week apart in July. We had a celebration for Ethan with his friends this year but did not do much for the Daddy as he was a little under the weather back then.  The boys surprised the Daddy with their DIY birthday gift and homebaked cake. We did not go out to celebrate so I decided to compensate and treated Darling to lunch last weekend.  I walk […]

Cook with Ayden: Quick & Easy One Pot Chicken Rice Recipe

It is no secret my boys love chicken rice. It’s the first thing they look for whenever we dine out. Today we’ll be sharing this quick and easy one pot chicken rice recipe that I’ve been cooking on lazy days. It’s so easy even little Ayden can cook this himself on busy days. All he does is just throw the ingredients into the pot and the rice will be ready in 15 minutes.  Ingredients (for […]

Drum with Ethan: It’s My Life Drum Cover

A brand new day on a brand new week. Today I would like to share Ethan’s latest drum cover – It’s My Life by Bon Jovi.  According to Ethan, this song is easier to play compared to the more challenging BURN he did previously. BURN remains as his most challenging cover todate.  Ethan is still very much passionate about drumming. We are lucky he has an equally passionate and patient drum teacher to guide him […]

We were in Hua Hin, Thailand for a week recently. I’ve blogged about our visit to the famous Santorini Park, Vana Nava Water Jungle as well as our stay experience at Novotel Hua Hin Cha-am Beach Resort & Spa. Today, I shall blog on another tourist attraction – Plearn Wan, a recreated retro village in Hua Hin offering quaint shops and eateries. Our driver dropped us on the opposite side of the road so we […]

Ethan’s 11th Birthday Celebration with Friends

Ethan turned 11 on Saturday. For the first time ever, we allowed him to celebrate with his friends. Since he is a big boy now, I gave him the task of creating the guest list. He was given the responsibility to invite who ever he wants without me questioning it. He also had to personally invite them and get their parent’s contact number without my assistance. I only came in the very last minute to […]

Tollyjoy Baby Day 2018

As someone who suffered from postpartum depression after delivering my first born, I am glad that efforts are being taken to address this issue to new moms. Today, I attended Tollyjoy Baby Day 2018 where not only we discussed Infant Health, we also talked about postpartum depression as well. What was once considered a taboo subject was discussed openly in a very relax manner. You can read about me overcoming my postpartum depression in this post […]

Fly to Hua Hin direct from Kuala Lumpur

We spent a week in Hua Hin during the recent school holidays. I have always wanted to go to Hua Hin but back then it was such a hassle as we had to fly to Bangkok and then take a bus or train to Hua Hin as there were no direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Hua Hin previously until June this year.  When I heard AirAsia launched a new route to Hua Hin in […]

Darling’s Birthday Surprise

We celebrated Darling’s birthday at home. He never wanted anything lavish for his birthday as I guess he knows he’ll be the one paying for it in the end  What can we do for the breadwinner of the house on his birthday then? I assisted the boys in preparing some surprises for their Daddy. First and foremost, we never mention anything about his birthday throughout the week. We pretended like we don’t remember but as […]

Mom’s Homecooked Peranakan Nyonya Dishes

My mom’s the best. I was back in Melaka last weekend. Not long before that, I mentioned to her that I will be coming home for the weekend and I’ve invited a dear friend to join us for lunch at home. Not that I’m cooking though. And just like that, she cooked up a storm and prepared a feast for us.  She cooked all these: Babi Satay Buah Keras My mom taught me how to […]

Raya Celebration at Kundang Estates

Yes, we are pretty much still in Raya mood. We spent our Sunday evening celebrating at Kundang Estates Sales Gallery by Gamuda Land as there were many activities lined up for visitors. Each visitor is also eligible to participate in the Lucky Draw and boy was I lucky as I won myself a super huge hamper that evening. I posted this picture on Facebook and people got excited at how huge my hamper is. They […]

Vana Nava Water Jungle | Hua Hin | Thailand

During our recent trip to Thailand’s most beloved resort town of Hua Hin, one of the highlight was to experience Vana Nava Water Jungle. The name “Vana Nava” comes from ancient Sanskrit. VANA means jungle/forest and NAVA means sea boat which represents the seaside city of Hua Hin. It is Asia’s First Water Jungle as well as the first ecologically aware community water park in the region. Vana Nava Water Jungle literally transformed an empty […]

Cook with Ayden: Simple Fried Rice

We have left over rice from yesterday so I thought, “let’s fry it” and immediately our Little Chef Ayden said he wanted to learn to fry rice. That’s when I realised I have never teach him this simple survival dish – FRIED RICE. It will come in handy when he leaves home to further his studies in the distant future. My rule for fried rice is pretty simple; just make sure to use multiple coloured […]

Family’s Choice: Novotel Hua Hin Cha Am Beach Resort & Spa, Thailand

Hua Hin is a beach resort town in the southern Thai province of Prachuap Khiri Khan. Well known for their beaches and multiple waterparks, it is ideal for families to enjoy the sun, sea and sand in the tropics. Previously if you wish to go to Hua Hin from Malaysia, you’ll need to fly to Bangkok and spend a couple of hours journey via train or car to Hua Hin. We almost took the train to […]

Previously if you wish to go to Hua Hin, you’ll need to fly to Bangkok and spend a couple of hours journey via train or car to Hua Hin. We almost took the train to Hua Hin when we were in Bangkok last year but decided against it as we […]

My Pink Diary : Pråper Pink Gaston Luga Swedish backpack

I’ve graduated from carrying a Mummy bag! If previously I am always seen lugging a hard shell Mummy bag where ever I go, I can now be seen walking around in style in my favourite colour – PINK!  Minimalistic yet functional, my new cheery Pråper Pink Gaston Luga Swedish backpack is my current favourite especially when I travel as its thick canvas material is very comfortable to hug in the plane.  The non-bulky straps complement my […]

Parents’ Day Wish in Mandarin

When are we celebrating Parents’ Day? Some told me it is in June yet some said it is in July? Anyway, Ayden learned to recite a simple poem for mother and father in his Mandarin enrichment class recently. He kept pestering me to learn it with him but try as I might, I just cant do it. Finally to make him happy, I tricked him to record it so I can watch it all the […]

Hari Raya decor at The Curve, eCurve, IPC, Sunway Pyramid and 1 Utama

We went shopping last weekend because it is ZERO GST now. What is the first thing you bought that you have been putting on hold but finally did it now that it is zero GST? We have 3 months of tax rest to our advantage yet I still haven’t buy anything major because I don’t have anything in mind at the moment.  Anyway, since I did not purchase anything worth sharing here, let me share […]

Anguilla Is The Perfect Starting Point For Caribbean Travel

If you’re not quite sure where Anguilla is, you’re not alone. The Caribbean is a wonderful region to travel through, but it is mostly visited by people in the Americas. Living in the East, just getting there takes more hours on a plane than most of us want to spend. But the truth is that the Caribbean is one item on your bucket list that needs to be ticked. It is unlike anywhere else in […]

Mummy’s Day Out

Last week, immediately after the end of Ethan’s second semester exam, we packed our bags and drove up to Resorts World Genting for a weekend staycation. The boys are always the happiest being up here enjoying the cool breeze. We brought them to catch the first viewing of SMURFS live on stage at Genting International Showroom which is being held from the 26 May – 24 June 2018. After Smurfs, the boys went back to the room […]

Read with Ayden: Peppa’s Busy Day

I homeschool Ayden. I think I have said that too many times. The benefit of homeschooling is we have the leisure of time in our hands. It is up to me to draw up a schedule for little Ayden and learning is not confined to home only. I bring him out on week days when there is lesser crowd in the mall. We go to the bookstore to read some books. Sometimes we’ll buy the […]

Gardening with Ayden: How To Grow Bitter Gourd in a Pot

It has been awhile since we last shared our garden project. We did not stop gardening. It is just that we grow the same thing so there isn’t anything to share until recently when Ayden grew a liking towards bitter gourd and requested to try growing them. As you all know, all our garden projects are done in pots and containers so same goes for our bitter gourd plant. Here is a video tutorial of […]

5 Places to Buka Puasa this Ramadan 2018

We are currently in the middle of Ramadan which means that we’ve certainly had the pleasure of witnessing and participating in the many Buka Puasa festivities that come together with this holy month for our Muslim friends. From the much anticipated bazaars filled with vendors dishing out our favourite treats to decadent buffets serving up luxurious spreads of both classical Malay fare and international cuisine, this is definitely a wonderful time to gather with our […]
