Homeschool Activity for Toddlers: Painting

As you may know, Ayden is home-schooled. I did the same with the elder brother until he is ready to go to Primary One in a public school. I intend to do the same with Ayden. I am thankful that I have the luxury of time to guide my kids during their formative years.  It requires a lot of discipline to homeschool a child. If I am lazy, my kid won’t be doing much hence […]

Toddler DIY activities: How to Make Watermelon Juice

how to introduce juicing to your toddler

One of the easiest juice to make is watermelon juice. All we need is a blender to get a refreshingly sweet and hydrating thirst quencher. It is so easy to make that Ayden now makes his own watermelon juice to go together with his lunch.  We don’t add sugar nor water to our watermelon juice. We love it as it is – 100% pure watermelon juice. You may add water if you find it to […]

During our recent stay at Holiday Inn Resort Mai Khao Beach Phuket, we had dinner once at their Italian restaurant – Pesto’s.

My favourite kitchen gadget

Raisin milk loaf

I was cleaning my kitchen today and took a good look at all the gadgets I have in there. I don’t have many. For a start, I have a build-in oven that is not working. If I switch it on, the power in the entire house will trip. It has been years but Darling did not get it fix so I have been baking cakes using my rice cooker. I am not able to bake […]

The past few days have been frustrating as it rained in the evenings, today included. We were all ready to go to the playground but as we stepped out of the house, it started to rain   You don’t know how important it is for us to go to the playground. The boys need to go to the playground to burn off whatever surplus energy they have otherwise they’ll have difficulty sleeping at night. I need […]

Holiday Inn Resort Mai Khao Beach, Phuket – The Perfect Family Getaway

Discovering Mai Khao on bike

I love traveling. Darling and I, we traveled the world before starting a family. We still love traveling now though I have to admit when we make our travel plans these days, priority is given to the kids. We will do prior research on activities suitable for the kids to partake, places of interest for the boys and most importantly, food availability for them. That is the reason why our previous trips with the kids had […]

Craft for Children: Footprint Popsicle

Ethan’s Taekwondo 1st Poom Black Belt

We went to Bukit Gambang Resort City last weekend but before we began our journey on Saturday, we dropped by Ethan’s school for his Black Belt 1st Poom certificate and changing of belt ceremony.  Ethan started learning taekwondo in March 2014. I was hesitant to let him learn initially but the father convinced me to let him with the reason it will be a good self-defense. I gave in and from that day onwards, our Saturdays […]

Unboxing TRANSFORMERS Robots-In-Disguise Hyperchange Heroes – Optimus Prime

Before the school holidays, after collecting big brother Ethan’s report card, we brought the boys to 1 Utama to check out TRANSFORMERS toys. Ethan is a huge fan of TRANSFORMERS and has a lavish collection of them which he is reluctant to share with Ayden. He is afraid Ayden will damage his TRANSFORMERS collection because Ayden will recklessly try to transform them. The boys got lucky this time as Hasbro Toy Malaysia, presented them each […]

His shoe vs Mine

stride rite toddler shoes 2

It is a state holiday today so let’s go shopping. We woke up early and quickly headed out to our favourite shopping mall because we are afraid if we go later, there won’t be any parking spot available as everyone else is taking this opportunity to do some shopping too. Town folks, tsk tsk! Ayden has been wearing big brother Ethan’s hand-me-down Crocs all these while so we thought it is time to buy him […]

Smuggling Popcorns

During the recent school holidays, we made popcorn at home. If you follow my blog, you would have read my post about our kitchen project – making popcorn. If you haven’t, then let me share with you the video on how to make popcorn. […]
