Human pyramid

We were back in Malacca over the long weekend for my cousin’s wedding. The next day, Darling and the boys kicked balls at my eldest uncle’s place when they suddenly decided to try making a human pyramid. I laughed my head off looking at my cousin’s anak who is barely 4 years old trying to climb over Darling and Ethan! And then FINALLY… What was meant to be a human pyramid turned out to be… […]


Nissan Almera on-the-road price and pictures

Nissan Almera boot space

Darling is contemplating to get a new car for work use. His choices are between Honda City, Toyota Vios and the newly launched Nissan Almera. If he decides to get either one of those, it will be the FIRST time we are purchasing a non-national car! Our cars have always been from Proton and Perodua -.- Almera’s on-the-road price definitely makes it a more attractive choice between Darling’s 3 choices.  From as low as RM66.8K, […]


Soul searching

Every once in a while we wonder if there is more to us than meets the eye. Let’s ponder deep within our soul and find that dark force that we try ever so hard to conceal… Every once in a while, we need to find that ‘ghost’ within us ^_^


How to make Halloween Paper Pumpkin

Halloween is approaching fast and this year we saw it getting more and more commercialized. Every where we go there are ‘Halloween special promotions’ going on but let’s get back to basic and DIY some Halloween decor shall we? It doesn’t cost a bomb and all we need is paper and thread.  Cute Halloween Paper Pumpkin Cut out about 20-22 strips from orange construction paper. Punch a hole on both ends for each and every […]


Raising a genius

“I tell you, I really think my 12 month-old boy is a genius! Just today, I was playing some music on my iPad and he came near to increase the volume! He can actually adjust the volume!” Sounds familiar? In this present world we live in, too many parents think we are raising an Einstein just because our kids can do things that we are incapable of when we were younger. As much as we wish […]


Don’t procrastinate

I spent most of my schooling days in Sitiawan, Perak. I lived in a rented home in Taman Hijau, Sitiawan where we had GREAT neighbors. Everybody knows everyone else by their names. My immediate neighbor was my parents’ friend even before they got married. They were all in the Navy then. Taman Hijau was our very own Wisteria Lanes… My family moved out of Taman Hijau when I was in college to resettle in their […]


Global Handwashing Day

*48 hours sticky post. Scroll down for latest entry* October 15 is Global Handwashing Day. How often do you wash your hands? Do you wash your hands after visiting the loo? Do you wash your hands before eating? Do you wash your hands after typing on the computer keyboard before having your snacks? Hah! Caught you there didn’t I? We are so used to working on the PC and snacking at the same time, we […]


It’s our 7th Wedding Anniversary!

I hope I’m right! LoL! When is your wedding anniversary? The day you got registered or the day we held the tea ceremony and dinner? Sometimes, I take our ROM date as our anniversary but since I forgotten missed that this year, I shall use our wedding ceremony date as our anniversary! Haha.. Anyway, I prefer to use our wedding ceremony date as it is closer to the year end when we are more relaxed. […]

Not too long ago, Ethan’s favourite KorKor XiangCool bought him a recipe book for kids titled Kids Can Cook.

Kids Can Cook Fish Bites Ingredients: 500g firm white […]


K-Pop: Big Bang meets Durian

It was just another typical lepak day in Sunway Giza today for me. I did not bring my camera along with me when I saw Doraemons and more Doraemons EVERYWHERE! All pics here are taken using my iPhone4s :D Doraemon is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year. Sunway Giza mall is having “We Barter, We Care” activity where you can trade your toys for some Doraemon paper crafts. I’m not too sure about the full […]

Ted : When a teddy bear is not a child’s play

Nuffnang had this screening of Ted tonight. The first time I saw it in their blog I went, “SO CUTE!” and showed it to Ethan to which he also exclaimed, “So CUTE!!”. But I saw that it will be screened in Mid Valley so I decided not to go for this as it will be too far for us. Starring Mark Wahlberg I’m kinda tempted to go but thinking of the distance from our place […]


DIY Halloween Trick O Treat bag

Halloween is around the corner and we are in the mood in creating creepy stuffs for kids! It’s always good to CREATE rather than BUY as these thematic things can actually burn a hole in your pocket.  So today we are going to convert a plain brown lunch bag into a not so spooky Halloween trick-0r-treat bag.  DIY Halloween Trick O Treat Bag First I help Ethan draw a cat, skull, spider, witch or anything […]


Pizza Fest: Cheesy Roasted Chicken Delight Pizza recipe

I’ve always love pizza. Actually I love lasagna more but since I’m watching my diet, pizza is a better alternative *I hope* The last time I made my own pizza was way back in secondary school during Home Science lesson! -.- We were in Aria Italian Dining last night to help out a bunch of college kids with their project – Pizza Fest. Even their lecturer was present that night! We got the opportunity to […]



The weather yesterday was super cold don’t you think so? It was raining the entire day and certain parts of the city was so foggy it felt like as if we were up in Genting! We go up to Genting like once every fortnight and just last week we were there in their all NEW Snow World.  Next week we will be going up again and this time it’s for FREEZE 2! We missed the […]

His first drum lesson

We’ve finally enrolled Ethan for drum lessons. He has been learning beginner drum beats from YouTube but doesn’t know what to do with those beats so I had to get a drum teacher to assist him. He had his first lesson today and enjoyed every bit of it as finally after a week having the drum set at home, he can now drum to songs! The drum teacher taught Ethan to read drum notes. After […]


You can’t bring me DOWN!

I have been having sleepless nights since I participated in this Senheng YouTube contest mid of last month. It was my first time joining such contest where we needed to campaign for the highest view to win a Samsung Galaxy S3.  I campaigned real hard and what touched me the most was the willingness of my family members, friends and readers to help share my campaign and work together with me to pull in the […]


Halloween Treats: Spider Biscuit

October is the month of celebrating spiders and pumpkins and everything black and orange! >_<  We made a treat out of these: Oreos, Rocky Chocolate sticks and strawberry chips. Can you guess what we did? ^_^ First, you twist it open. Then arrange the chocolate sticks on the bed of filling. Place back another piece of Oreo biscuit on it. You can see my lil helper’s mouth has chocolate stains as for every spider he […]


Pictures of the NEW Snow World @ Genting

After much anticipation, we finally landed in the all NEW Snow World, Genting today. Darling and I entered for free as we won the tickets earlier but we had to pay RM23 for Ethan. With World Card the rate will be RM21 instead but we forgot ours so… bleh! First thing first. Each visit session only lasts for 40 minutes at scheduled hours. We bought ours for the 1.30-2.10pm session. At 1.30pm sharp, the gate […]


Introducing DRUM

This used to be his study room that he shares with my other students.  But we have cleared the wall and gave it a fresh coat of paint. Installed air-cond so we can sound-proof the room.  Bought a rug from IKEA. Ethan specifically chose that design. It looked kinda tribal to me but since this is going to be his room and he wants that, so, yeah, we got that.  And tah-dah… TODAY the delivery […]



Darling and I have been together for almost 15 years now. Throughout these 15 years he has never, EVER heard me fart! Seriously! There are so many things I can do in front of him but the ONE thing I won’t do in his presence is farting. Really. Why should I when the art of farting has no sex appeal whatsoever? It doesn’t hold any advantages and worse is it just pollutes the air so […]


His new WALL

Remember my sufferings when Ethan decided to upgrade his study/play room into something more ‘mature’? My fingers all blistered from the peeling of the double layered tapes off the wall. Read all about it here. After days of endless peelings I finally gave up and told Darling to go ahead with the new paint eventhough there are still lots of sticky residues left on the wall. So these two macho topless guys got started with […]
