Papier Mache Aeroplane Pencil Case

Ethan came home from Kindergarten one day telling me that his friend has this super cool pencil case that can store BOTH pencils and colour pencils. He asked me if we can get something similar for him and I said, we’ll see.. Last weekend when I was in Malacca, my eldest aunt told me about her love for papier mache. She told me how she made many papier mache coin boxes and sold them when […]

Goodies in his bag

I mentioned in my previous post that Ethan missed his only Kindergarten Sports Day as he was unwell that day. He was quite upset that he did not get to attend it as he really wanted to do his best to get that gift that his teacher promised him earlier.  Upon returning to school last week after recovering, he got a big surprise as his teacher saved a goodie bag for him even though he […]

Spicy Mushroom Tapas Recipe

I have a new hobby lately – watching Ayam Brand’s The Student Series online. The Student Series revolves around Will (played by Will Quah) a typical male student; clumsy and a complete disaster in the kitchen. His sister, Sarah (played by Aishah Sinclair) is the opposite. She knows her way around the kitchen and loves to cook. Since Will is leaving for his studies to Australia soon, he is concerned that he will miss Malaysian […]

Family Dim Sum Brunch at The Emperor, Dorsett Grand Subang

Last Sunday we were in Dorsett Grand Subang in conjunction with their Family Dim Sum Brunch promotion at their award-winning restaurant, The Emperor. This was not the first time for us dining here as we were here last year during my birthday stay and dine celebration. You can read all about it here. The first thing that caught Ethan’s attention was the “Kid’s Corner” where baby-sitting service and fun activities are available for children.  The […]

Alphabet Adventures

I came home yesterday and found a package on the floor of my car porch! The postman actually just threw the package there! >_< Unwrapped it and saw this book: Alphabet Adventures by Megan Mueli I’ve totally forgotten about this book. Megan actually contacted me some time ago discussing about including a piece of my craft work in her book and we’ve come to an agreement. She did mention that she’ll mail me a copy […]

His first casting call and Transformers SideSwipe

Last Saturday was Ethan’s kindergarten Sports Day. He has been practicing hard the entire week not only for the sports activity but also for marching and dance performance. He was extremely excited to attend the Sports Day as his teacher promises him that if they do well in the marching and dance performance she’ll give them a present each. Alas, come Thursday that little boy started feeling unwell. He got the flu. Went to bed […]

Pan-fried Salmon with Garlic Buttered Mushroom Recipe

When Ethan was younger, I always cook salmon for him. I stopped when he grew older. I don’t know why (maybe because salmon is costly) we just stopped eating salmon for several years now until today. We were in AEON Supermarket when I spotted their salmon selling at 50% less. Bought several packs home and immediately started cooking dinner. Ingredients: Salmon Greens of your choice (Broccoli, Carrot & Corn) Garlic spread Parsley Since the salmon […]

Egg bullet abstract art

In last Sunday’s Chiki Boom episode, the Chiki Boom gang were involved in a laser tag battle in Galatic Laser @ Mid Valley. With that, I had to come out with a craft that has something to do with laser tag or paintball. I finally came out with this: Egg Bullet Abstract Art All we need are empty egg shells and some acrylic paint. Fill up the eggs with colorful paints and just toss them […]

Roti John recipe

I’ve not had Roti John for the longest time ever. Roti John is basically an omelette sandwich. These days people prefer to have meat in the omelette. If you drop by any Roti John stall, you’ll find the common minced chicken meat or beef being used but for me, I’ve always preferred to use sardine instead (as my mom has been making it this way since I was little). Yesterday the thought of Roti John […]

How to get a kid to eat vegetables

If there is one flaw in Ethan, it must be the fact that he doesn’t like fruits. Getting him to eat fruits is like forcing him to take poison. I’ve given up coaxing him to eat fruits. He doesn’t like juices as well but occasionally will gulp down a glass of freshly blended apple juice just so his Mommy won’t cry that all her efforts has gone to waste.  To balance things up, I have […]

His very first Transformers Autobots

When Ethan was younger, I refrained him from playing with guns. He was a very ‘well-behaved’ kid. So ‘well-behaved’ that got the Grandpa worried that he might not be ‘boy’ enough. Late last year, Ethan started to have friends popping into our home and they are all boys. They played guns and all but Ethan does not know how to play combat. My neighbor’s kids taught Ethan to play battlefield. As soon as I told […]

Bottle Cap Chocolate Replica Craft

Chiki Boom

Last Sunday’s Chiki Boom TV2 showcased the Chiki Boom gang visiting a chocolate museum in Kota Damansara. I was required to come out with a chocolate craft for that episode. I squeezed my brain dry trying hard to produce a chocolate craft out of recyclables. I almost gave up, telling the producer that it is not possible until suddenly this idea popped into my head.  Bottle Cap Chocolate Replica As usual, Ethan will have to […]

Secret Brunch on a quiet weekend

It was a ‘secretive’ weekend. I was hush-hush on my whereabouts. Nah.. I was in KL and it was very quiet. Suddenly Ethan said that he wants to eat Mac n Cheese REALLY badly! I asked him, “How bad?” He answered, “Really, really bad!” Whoa… I told him he has a pregnant woman’s craving! We were in KLCC then so we dropped by this place for the Mac n Cheese but upon reading the menu […]

Sambal Petai Ikan Bilis Recipe

When I was younger, I already love to eat petai. My second sister however is not a fan of it. I remembered taking a bite of the petai from my mother’s sambal and gave out a loud “HAH” in front of my sis so she could smell my breath! I remembered how pissed she was! LoL! Those were the good ol’ days.. Though I love sambal especially with petai in it, I’ve never tried dishing […]

These are the fans that are eager to be the first to […]

Stir Fried Green Beans in Belacan (Shrimp Paste) Recipe

My mother fries wicked ‘bawang belacan’ veges such as Pucuk Ubi Bawang Belacan and Ladies Finger (Okra) Bawang Belacan. She calls it bawang belacan as the ingredients calls for shallots (bawang), shrimp paste (belacan) and also chili.  When Ethan was younger, he does not take spicy food hence all the veges are stir fried with only garlic or with the added oyster sauce. Now that he is turning 6 in 3 months time, he is […]
