Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa

Remember I posted in early July about wanting to go for a beach vacation? My friends heard me so we planned for a weekend retreat down south. They planned to drive down together to Johor early Friday morning but thinking about being in the car for 4-5 hours straight scares the heck out of me. We decided to drive back to Malacca on Thursday night instead and put a night at my mom’s place before […]

City folks, kampung life @ Pulai Desaru Beach Resort

Howdy peeps! How you been doing? We’re finally back after a 3 day hiatus. We went down south to Pulai Desaru for some much needed back to nature retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I did not bring my laptop along with me as I have this one rule of NOT bringing work along on our vacation. But guess what? I max my iPhone usage during the entire trip that I […]

Celcom First WiFi – The WiFi that powers the nation

We are in that era where we just HAVE to be connected at all times, aren’t we? If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I’ve recently ‘complained’ about not having connection when I was back at my in-laws. I can’t live without my laptop, smart phone and now even the camera comes with wi-fi! Celcom has launched Celcom First WiFi, a wireless internet service available for all. At selected public places, everyone and […]

Fake or Real?

In this world we are living today, in this digital era that has taken us by storm, it is hard to tell real from fakes and vice versa. Not everything we read in the media is real. They say a picture speaks a thousand words but these days with picture manipulation so easily done, we can hardly trust the thousand words that a picture tells.. I’ve not posted pictures of myself for quite some time […]

How to peel a kiwi?

Gold or rather yellow kiwi fruit is the craze these days. Nevermind how expensive they are, we are consuming them like mad just because they are said to be higher in nutrients. The fact that they are sweeter and bald makes it more appealing to me lah actually.  How do you peel a kiwi fruit anyway? I don’t like to use the peeler as I’ll end up wasting a thick chunk of skin and flesh […]

Cars 2 Banners DIY

Ethan wanted to have Cars 2 theme for his birthday celebration. It was two weeks before his birthday so I thought since we had so much time, why not make our own Cars 2 banner? I didn’t know THEN that we can easily buy them for under RM20 in Toys R Us! >_< Anyway, Ethan did checked prints using Excel. We printed lots and lots of them since the ink so cheap only (so I […]

Ethan is FIVE!

So Ethan is finally FIVE on Saturday! We celebrated his birthday in the Studio just like last year. Just a year different from last birthday, he is way more ‘involved’ this year in his birthday planning. He specifically requested for a Cars 2 cake. He wanted a Cars 2 theme. He wanted to invite his friends and he makes it a point NO ADULT are allowed for his birthday >_< He shops for the party […]

Ramadhan Review : One World Hotel

Throughout the holy month of Ramadhan, Cinnamon Coffee House renowned for its wide array of glorious traditional Malay specialities, is putting together a melting pot of local and international dishes which have carved a place in our hearts as perennial favourites. Aptly themed Warisan Bonda, we embarked on a culinary journey savouring mom’s home-cooked recipes. At the carving stall, we indulged in Roast New Zealand Whole Lamb Malay style with special sauces. A wide range […]

P1 MiFi Packet One Networks at only RM39!

I’m writing this entry using my iPhone as I’m at my in-law’s place and they don’t have internet connection here >_< It’s annoying trying to update my blog via this tiny gadget and it’s even more annoying trying to comment in people’s blog especially when they have that blogger’s verification code thingy. If only I have pocket wifi with me! And then I came across Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd’s latest promo, (P1) new […]

What’s YOUR problem?!!

I was with Ethan at Daiso 1U yesterday evening. Was looking for some stuffs for tomorrow’s big project. There’s this girl I think around 6 years old kept on looking at us and standing close to us. Then, Ethan’s stroller touched her toes. She screamed at me, “Dunno how to say SORRY wan ah?!!” I was shocked!! I walked away. She followed us close. I ignored her. She brought another girl, younger than her I […]

Do we really need cell phones in school?

I am horrified to read about the decision to allow mobile devices to be brought to school starting next year in our country. When dining out, just look around you. Most children are no longer interacting with each other these days. They all got their head burried into their mobile IT gadgets. A reunion of any sorts no longer holds any virtue of togetherness. What we get these days is a group of humans put […]

Spare the rod and spoil your child?

To spank or not to spank? It is an age-old question. I would love to tell parents not to spank their child but I can’t, because to discipline a child we need to look at the complete picture. But what I like to say is if you need to spank, please do so only on the bum or hands; never hard enough to leave scars or unsightly marks of your handprint or the rod. Handprints […]

What to do with mayonnaise?

I got this bottle of Japanese mayonnaise from Ethan’s class educational trip recently. I have no idea what to do with it until yesterday when I discovered that it is going to expire this December when I stripped it! :P Oh dear, better use it fast before it expires! Japanese Kewpie sudah bogel :D What we did was to blanch some carrot sticks and cut some japanese cucumbers. I used normal carrot as I doubt […]

How to drill holes in wall

I know many fathers out there think it’s macho to be doing hardcore house job with their sons. The moment Darling found out he will be getting a son he can already visualize all the guy things that they can do together. Last weekend was the perfect example. I needed some holes to be drilled on my walls so as usual Darling will have to do it. This time around, the kaypoh Ethan wanted to […]

We were invited by Nuffnang and Resort World Genting to stay the night at Chin Swee Temple for some meditation, Tai Chi, energy session, chakras discussion, mandala colouring and more.

It was Friday and Darling was working so Ethan and I packed our […]

Let’s Be Healthy

Most of you know that I was a kindergarten teacher before I got Ethan right? Ok, in case you don’t, NOW you know :D I quit after delivering him to become a full-time stay at home mom. It was not part of my plan but.. nevermind :) Back when I was teaching, I always tell the parents to make sure their kids HAVE breakfast before coming to school as the nutrients taken will help them […]

Optimal Brain Development

Two things work better than one. How very true that is. Many things work better when complemented by another. I was watching Ethan playing with his Thomas train today. The thing about these toys is that they are often sold separately.< We started with the Thomas train but Ethan got frustrated as he could not carry anything with only the engine so we made another trip to the mall.. I like to think that the […]

Ramadhan buffet : The Saujana Hotel

The Saujana Hotel is just a stone’s throw away from my house. Okay, maybe we’ll need a little bit more than just a stone, perhaps 20 stones will do :D During the Ramadhan month last year, we were invited to dine at this prestigious hotel. We enjoyed our meal by the poolside very much. The food, ambiance, traditional performances and live stations serving varieties of local delicacies made us feel warm all over. Read more […]

Marché The Curve

Darling’s birthday is this weekend but guess what? I’ll be attending Nuffnang’s Blogopolis 2012 and that itself will take me away from 8am – 6pm followed by a date with Justin Bieber (MTV World Stage) later that night in Sunway :P So to make up for my ‘absence’ during his birthday, I took him out for an early birthday celebration last night. We went to Marché at the Curve. It’s our first time here mind you […]

Genting Chin Swee Temple Vegetarian Restaurant

A couple of weeks ago, we went up to Chin Swee Temple in Genting Highland, Pahang. It’s so beautiful here as we have cool breeze day in, day out! We fell in love with the breathtaking view of Chin Swee Temple. We super love the cool weather too! Okay, the thing is, before going for this excursion, we were worried that all we’ll be having is bread and water. Can’t blame me as Chin Swee […]

Love the Micro-Vibration EYE 3 in 1 Brightener The vibrating tool is said to vibrate dark circles and puffiness away.

In the absence of kindergarten

Good morning peeps! How was your weekend? Ours was a very hectic one. Our Saturday was spent in the Studio, then straight to my eye check-up and the rest of the day was havoc running from one school to another scouting for dance and drum lessons! Ethan playing Guitar Hero Ethan has been pestering us to sign him up for drum, dance and even guitar lessons. Where in the world he got all those interest […]

The kids did a simple koi fish painting in the Studio today. One look at Ethan’s koi fish and many said he is VERY talented! LoL.. now, let me share with you the SIMPLE process of how those kids […]
