Bercerita bersama Adik Ayden: Belalang dan Semut

Ayden is 3 years 5 months. He is still not attending any preschool at the moment so it is entirely my responsibility to keep up with his total development. Children pick up a new language best below 6 years of age so I take this opportunity to teach Ayden an extra language besides English. I teach him to speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I wish I can teach him Mandarin but that is totally an alien language […]

Cooking with Ayden: How to Make Soya Cincau

Playground Maintenance

We’ve been frequenting this playground since big brother Ethan was a baby. The moment I was out of confinement I started to bring him here, until today together with lil brother Ayden. This was big brother Ethan when he was 17 months old.  This was lil bro Ayden when he was 2 years old. You can see that the equipment in the playground had obviously been vandalised over the years. That was back in 2015. […]

Stop Motion Animation: Snake vs Pikachu

Homeschooling Ayden has its ups and downs. There are days when he refused to touch any books and prefer to just play. On days like that, I’ll improvise and see how we can make it a learning session nevertheless. I saw that Ayden was engrossed playing with his PlayDoh so I suggested for us to make a stop motion animation out of it. This is the first time he is involved in the making of […]

Daiso Price Increase – Extra 60 Cents Per Item

I took advantage of the Thaipusam holiday to go to Daiso to buy a trolley-full of items because effective 1st March 2017, each normal item at Daiso Japan stores in Malaysia is being increased from RM5.30 to RM5.90!  Yup, a whopping RM0.60!  When the government implemented GST, the usual RM5 per item at Daiso cost an additional RM0.30, making it RM5.30 per item.  Next month with the price increase, we are going to pay RM5.90 per item […]

We went for our first family holiday this year at Lexis Hibiscus, Port Dickson. We have always wanted to come here since their soft launch over a year ago but decided to wait until they are fully completed so that we can fully enjoy their facilities. The first thing I noticed was that they have free WIFI and the coverage is pretty strong throughout the entire resort. Thumbs UP! Before I go into details, here is […]

canton2go Mini Buffet Delivery

Malaysians in general love food. We love anything food. There must be food in everything we do, be it a quick meet up over tea or a long catch up over dinner, food always takes the centre stage. But as much as we love food, not many of us are equipped with the life-saving skill of cooking. Urban folks especially are always in a hurry that we rarely get to spend time in the kitchen.  With […]

Before Christmas last December, I helped Darling call several Chinese restaurants in town to treat his business associates this coming Chinese New Year before we head home to our hometown to celebrate this joyous occasion. Some of these restaurants are already running high and almost fully booked as more and more city folks prefer to stay put in the Klang Valley during festive seasons.
