Killer Eyes

photo 3

People always tell me Ayden looks Korean. I guess they must have meant he looked like Koreans before having their double eyelid surgeries :P  People also said Ayden looks very similar to me. What? Where got… He has nicer eyelashes. I have almost none existing eyelash. If I get into a sand storm, I’ll go blind immediately for there will be nothing to shield my eyes. I have to resort to falsies for that ‘camel […]

Chinese New Year is less than a month away. We are getting busy spring cleaning, making angpow lanterns, shopping and more to usher the 2015 Lunar New Year. It’s also a must for some to buy a box of Yee Sang to toss at home with the family on CNY day. Same goes for us. Last Saturday, we were at Sakae Sushi not to tapao their Yee Sang yet but to dine in and lou sang […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Reading Activity

reading

The reason I prefer to homeschool Ayden than to send to playschool is because I can guide him as and when he is most comfortable and feels like it. This is especially important during reading session as it will be almost impossible to teach a toddler when he is sleepy and cranky. At 16 months old, reading is not limited to word cards though I use mostly wordcards for our reading lessons. I introduced word cards […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Colour Sorting

homeschooling a toddler

Continuation from our first homeschool activity of beading/threading, we are going to proceed with the second activity a toddler can do at home today. It is never too early to expose a toddler to the world of colours. If you watch your toddler closely, you’ll discover that he/she will usually have a preference towards a particular colour. Always start with that colour to capture his interest.  My 16 month old Ayden loves playing with building […]

Homeschooling a Toddler – Beading Activity

homeschooling a toddler

It’s the second day of school for the big brother Ethan and Ayden is left alone at home with me. Now that Ayden is 16 months old, I can start ‘homeschooling’ him just like what I’ve done with the elder brother years ago. By ‘homeschooling’ I mean keeping Ayden occupied by giving him lots of playtime to improve his fine motor skills. Parents these days have all the luxury to splurge on their kids when […]

Meltique Teppanyaki Beef Special Set Sashimi

It was late evening by the time I arrived there so we decided to have dinner nearby. It was just several days into the new year 2015 and we thought we should ‘eat big’ to start our year with abundance so we made our way to Xenri (located […]

A Shopping Sunday

Shopping with the kids

I dread shopping. The reason being it is difficult to find stuffs my size. If you don’t already know, I am hobbit sized. I can never get dresses that fits perfectly. They are often too long. A dress that hangs nicely above the knee to normal people will look like a maxi on me >_< Forget about buying shoes. It’s a nightmare to find shoes that fits. My shoes are often a size bigger but […]

Every corner exude style and […]
