Diaper explosion!

I was spring cleaning my house today. I looked through Ethan’s old clothes, his sheets, curtains and more and dumped them into the washing machine to give them a rinse before putting them away or maybe letting those pre-loved items go. NEVER did I imagine when the washing machine sings its usual tune signalling that my laundry is done, I’ll be facing the BIGGEST mess ever!  I was greeted with THIS! Gel-like substance flowing out […]

Recycle your eco-friendly shopping bags and old CDs

If you are a blogger who loves attending events, you are sure to have lots and lots of eco-friendly shopping bags at home. I have like a million of them! :P Apart from attending events, we bloggers get to attend movie screenings too aye? That only means that I do not purchase VCDs/DVDs as often as I used to anymore. In fact, I have so many CDs/VCDs/DVDs at home that is full of scratches that […]

Steamed Wheat Crackers Koko Krunch Cake recipe

We were supposed to go to the playground but it rained. Rainy days calls for emergency baking but I don’t have all the necessary ingredients to bake a decent cake. I looked through my cabinet and found some wheat crackers and leftover Koko Krunch from the Cute Doggies Cookies the other day. I thought of steaming a cake so I checked if I have all the necessary ingredients: 220gm of butter (original recipe calls for […]

Istana Negara KL

During our Hop-On Hop-Off KL tour recently, we hop-off at the new Istana Negara. We’ve always wanted to visit this place but never got the chance, so this was a golden opportunity for us. The Grand Istana Negara Beyond the almighty gate lies a beautiful palace. A closer shot. As you can see it was a very windy day that day. Flags flew proud and mighty. Ethan has always requested for us to bring him […]

How to peel a dragon fruit

Darling and I love fruit juice while Ethan unfortunately doesn’t want to go near it at all :( We bought a food processor not too long ago that is able to crush ice so we can have ice-blended juice anytime in the comfort of our own home :D Today we made dragon fruit juice.  From the cactus family, dragon fruit is football-shaped and has a leathery, leafy skin that is deep red or pink. So how […]

How to tie shoelace

Do you remember when you learnt to tie your shoe laces? I don’t. I don’t even remember when I learn to cycle on 2 wheels. Last Friday we bought Ethan his very first shoes with shoelaces. He has always requested for shoes with shoelaces since he saw my jogging shoes. Today, I taught him how to tie his shoelace. Surprisingly, he managed to successfully tie his own shoelaces after the second try! But what is […]

Hop-On Hop-Off KL

During the long weekend break, Darling decided to try being a tourist getting around KL. What better way than to Hop On Hop Off KL? If you are a smart tourist, you’ll definitely not want to flag for a cab in the heart of KL as the crazy jam will make the journey very costly in the end. I’m so used to be driven around KL that it is such a welcoming change to be […]

Wrap your precious one with the softness of Comfort Ultra Pure

When it comes to beauty, we always wish to have skin as smooth as a baby’s. But do you know that baby’s skin is thinner, more sensitive and less oily than an adult’s. They are more prone to rashes and other skin condition. That’s the reason why we are encouraged to apply baby oil onto our new born’s delicate skin; to moisturise and keep them comfortable. Ethan is no longer a baby but his skin […]

Hari Raya Mall decor : IPC

Our Hari Raya Mall decor hunt brought us to IPC (Ikano Power Centre). The decor revolves around a fishing village. Ethan doesn’t like the giant octopus and here he is trying to stomp it! >_< That should be a whale right? I don’t understand why they have this giant creatures scattered around.

Together, great things can happen

Have you ever wondered why educational toys for kids are mostly focused on ‘building’ or puzzle-like concept? In games such as the one shown above, you’ll need to connect more pieces in order to create something. Threading beads is also popular with kids. They strive to try threading those beads as long as possible; with the longer the connection, the more satisfied and happier they are with their achievement. Building blocks is another must have […]

Leap to happiness

Being a full-time stay-at-home-mother (SAHM) requires a lot of motivation to keep me going and stay happy in my mundane life. Sometimes I can’t help but think grass is greener on the other side. Sometimes I wish to still be working and have friends to hang out with. Sometimes I wish things were different… But reality is I’m a mother to this boy: Weeeeeee! I’m HAPPY! I JUMP when I’m HAPPY! Weeeeeee! Look Mommy! I […]
