Christmas Decorations: 1 Utama

1utama-christmas-decor-2016-2

We were at 1 Utama last weekend to check out their Christmas decor.  I don’t get it at first. All I see are giant poinsettia flowers.  And then this huge albino spider appeared in front of me, scaring the heck out of me *almost dropped my camera*  I was thinking, “What does spiders got to do with Christmas?!” I bet they are going to keep those spiders after Christmas and spray paint them black come […]

Drum with Ethan: Ethan’s Performance at Sunway Giza mall

drummer-ethan

Today’s agenda is having Ethan perform at Sunway Giza for a musical concert. He performed two Grade 6 exam pieces in front of an audience. A week ago I suggested for Ethan to ditch the book and play by ear as I find it weird to see a drummer playing with a book in front of him. Today, he proves to me that he is able to do that – playing without his exam book  […]

Craft with Ayden: Cotton Bud Tree Art

cotton-bud-tree-art

It has been raining the past evenings, Ayden has caught a cold. Yesterday, it looks like it was going to rain again so I decided to bring the kids to the playground much earlier. At least if it rains, they would have gotten some sunshine and fresh air before rushing home.  Since Ayden is nursing a cold and won’t be able to play with the other kids, I let him do some art work in the […]

ethan-top-4

Hi all, do you remember Ethan? LoL. I know I have not been updating much about him these days as he has been very busy with school stuffs and activities. He goes to school early in the morning, comes home in the afternoon for lunch. Then up to his room for homework, coming down for tea and then off to the playground for an hour or two of football with the neighbourhood kids. He also […]

Gardening with Ayden: Worm Farming

worm

A worm farm turns organic waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser for your plants and soils but all I have are small bins for breeding worms, not those big professional ones for worm farming. I breed earthworms so I can transfer them into my potted plants as they help increase nutrient in the soil and create better drainage. Ayden has been watching me breed earthworms for some time. Today, he requested to have his very own worm […]

Taekwondo with Ethan

Ethan participated in his school’s talent night last Sunday. The event is supposedly to start at 7pm but the children were told to be at school by 4.30pm. Parents were not allowed to be around. The gate only opened to parents/public at 6pm. We wanted to send Ethan to school later but this boy was afraid his teacher may not like it and insisted to be there by 4.30pm. The children were served fried rice […]

Gardening with Ayden: DIY Calcium Powder

Our costs of living is getting higher. It is advisable to grow our own food where possible. I grow spinach, tomatoes, brinjals, ladies fingers, red beans and even corns for our consumption. These are all grown in pots as I don’t have much land at home. To ensure good harvest especially when you are growing fruiting plants such as tomatoes, brinjals, ladies fingers and corns, you need to make sure the soil is fertile and […]

The Story of the Empty Milk Carton

Milk carton sailboat craft_2

Ethan took out a carton of milk from the refrigerator. That is the only carton of milk left that day. He poured out some milk and kept the carton back into the refrigerator. Seeing big brother having milk to drink, Ayden asked for it too so I went to get some only to find that the carton of milk is already EMPTY. Rage mode ON but I decided to play it cool. I gave Ayden […]

Art time with Ayden: Sponge Painting

Koi fish painting

Just the other day I shared the benefits of stamping for toddlers. In case you missed it, you may read all about it here. Today, we explore further on stamping with a new paint tool – sponge. Ayden loves Koi fish so I thought let’s make today’s art activity more interesting by letting him paint his very own koi fish. I did this same art activity with big brother Ethan back in 2012 when he […]

The Number76 experience

the-number76-hair-service-experience

It has been a year since I started frequenting Number76 at Starhill Gallery for all my hair needs. They introduced me to hair relaxing, a softer and more natural look as opposed to super straight rebonded hair. I became a fan of hair relaxing from then onwards that I don’t think I’ll ever do rebonding again.  Number76, Starhill Gallery The Starhill Gallery branch has extended their salon and is now bigger and more spacious.  They also […]

Art time with Ayden : Why Stamping is important for young children

stamping-activity

Ayden is 3 years old. It is important to work on his soft motor skills. At this age, I pay more attention to his finger muscles and hand strengthening as it is crucial in helping him to hold the pencil when he starts going to school. Stamping is one of the best activity to work those finger muscles as he will be utilising all four fingers and his thumb to hold the stamp. It helps in […]

Guess where were we …

We were here. The one place I dread to go on a weekend or during the school holidays. I’ll only try to go on a weekday if possible. If not, then I choose not to go at all coz the queue at the counter can be horrible on a weekend. It is especially terrible during the school holidays. Only several weeks left before the year end school holidays and with Christmas approaching, I am sure […]

One day, I decided to try growing them ourselves.  Growing red beans is extremely simple. All we had to do was […]
