A Surprise Birthday Cake for Daddy’s Birthday Brunch

We are currently in Melaka to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. His birthday was on the 11th but it falls on a weekday with the kids still in school so we had to celebrate a bit later. I choose to bring him to Hotel Equatorial Melaka for their Jazzy Sunday Brunch as I really loved it when we dined here last month. The price is pretty reasonable too especially since both my parents are senior citizens. […]

Ayden’s Milestone: Cycling on two wheels

Ayden has been cycling Ethan’s hand-me-down bicycle with the aid of balancing wheels since October last year. I blogged about it here. He loves cycling very much and will cycle around the court while we play badminton or he’ll follow me on the cement path when I jog. He cycles up and down stones resulting in his balancing wheels getting out of shape and not able to support his bicycle properly.  Yesterday, I noticed him […]

Cute NOHOO bags for kids

We were at KLCC today and I took that opportunity to take some pictures of the boys with the mighty twin towers as backdrop. Our iconic skyscrapers. Beautiful isn’t it? I just can’t get enough of it no matter how many times I see it. As I was taking pictures of Ayden, I saw a group of tourists smiling and gesturing towards him. They were saying something while pointing to Ayden’s cute back pack. Ayden […]

Cook with Ayden: Stir-Fried Long Beans with Egg

I do grocery shopping daily. As I was thinking of what to cook today, I saw some nice long beans and bitter gourd. I love bitter gourd but the boys don’t so I ended up buying long beans. I plan to fry it with eggs. It did not cross my mind that Ayden can actually cook this too as it requires frying. When we were paying, Ayden asked me what was I planning to cook […]

We never know it is extremely easy to cook this dish… until today  Ingredients: 300gm peanuts (soaked overnight) 350ml water 1/2 stick […]

Places of Interest Within Walking Distance in Melaka

My parents are Malaccan. I am born in Melaka but not raised here hence I am as foreign to this place as most tourist out there.
