Talent Night

The day Ethan has been waiting for – Piano Station Talent Night has finally arrived. On that very same day also we got the best news ever, Ethan’s drum teacher messaged me to inform that Ethan passed his Trinity Grade 2 Examination that he sat for earlier this month! I let Ethan read that message and he squealed in delight! He let out a loud sigh of relief and hugged me real tight! Of course […]

Concorde Hotel Shah Alam’s ‘The Best of Penang & Johor’ Ramadan Buffet

Muslims fast from dawn until the sun sets, offering more frequent prayers and restraining from wicked intentions during the Holy month of Ramadan. This Holy month also brings the ties between family and friends closer when Muslim seek forgiveness from each other and endure the month together. In this multi-cultural country, non-Muslims are always invited to join in the break fast meal as we live harmoniously together and that was just what we did several […]

DRB–HICOM AUTOFEST 2013 @ SETIA Spice Pulau Pinang

Ethan, just like his father loves cars. He has been following his Dad to auto events from as young as 2 to check out cars (and babes possibly?!). He can name the parts of cars better than me! He loves fast cars too! Daddy and Ethan have expensive taste! I won’t even dare to touch that! Ethan grew up following us test driving cars here, there and everywhere. He is into hybrid cars these days. […]

He did not know how to draw a panda so I taught him :) Ethan’s panda. Cute? ^_^ Here’s the step by step on how to draw a panda ^_^ We used 50, 20, 10 and 5 cents coins for this.  First use the 50 cents coin to […]

What to do during the haze

I think we’ve never experienced haze as terrible as we did the past few days.  With majority of schools closed due to the haze, we still send Ethan to kindy as usual the past two days as his school is a corner lot house with full air-conditioned and is operating as usual minus the outdoor activities. Today, Ethan was supposed to go for his BaoBei class too in the evening but he told us that […]

Weekend Updates

How was your weekend? Ours was a very hectic one. Besides having additional tuition classes for my students to prepare them for the upcoming UPSR trial which was supposed to start tomorrow (but now all school closed due to the haze, I’m not sure about the UPSR trial anymore though) we were also busy with Ethan’s public drum performances with other students from Piano Station, Sunway Giza for two consecutive nights.  After my tuition classes […]

Simple Homemade Burger Patty Recipe

Burger joints are mushrooming around the Klang Valley lately. It makes me crave for burgers day and night but Darling doesn’t bring me there mostly because their burger patties are made of beef and both Darling and Ethan do not take beef :( Now that I’m a mother, hygiene and health is another factor. We never know what goes into their burger patties. Unlike those days when I was in college and survived on frozen […]

DIY Self-watering Container

I love gardening but since I had Ethan, I’ve not been able to do that much. As Ethan grows older, I thought I can start gardening again but our schedule became so tight that we don’t even have time to care for our plants and eventually they all dried up and die :( A couple of months ago I saw a post on self watering container on Facebook. I glanced through it and never thought […]

Monsters University Plushie

Thanx to Nuffnang we got to catch Monsters University @ MBO Citta Mall last night. Ethan was extra excited for this I don’t know why.. As soon as we got out of the elevator we saw this and Ethan quickly requested for a picture ^_^ Then Darling and Ethan went to the Nuffnang counter to collect our tickets and also a very special gift, an official merchandise – a Sully plushie! Ethan hugged Sullivan like […]

Simple Omelette Wrap Recipe

I’ve never tried making wraps before but each time I ordered a sandwich in Subway and looking at their wraps makes me want to have a try! So the other day while grocery shopping I took the ‘courage’ and bought a pack of wholemeal Mission Wrap to try making my very own omelette wraps. You know me, I’ll try making it as simple as possible as I don’t like spending too much time in the […]

Best playground hunt: Pusat Sains Negara

One of the BEST playground around has got to be the one in Desa Park City. I’ve blogged about it last year. Read more about the playground in Desa Park City. Last week, we were in Pusat Sains Negara for a recording session and the recording happens to be outdoor in the playground. The place was actually closed to public on that day hence the ’empty’ park you see in my pictures. I was impressed […]

After 8 months since starting his drum lessons, he sat for his Trinity Grade 2 Drum Exam earlier this month and coming end of this month, he will be performing in the first ever Talent Night organised by his drum school, Piano Station.   They had a full dress rehearsal last Saturday at Sunway Mas Community Centre.  I was told it was a full-dressed rehearsal but I see […]

Cloth Peg Aeroplane Fridge Magnet

Last month, I posted the tutorial for Ice cream Stick Cloth Peg Aeroplane Fridge Magnet. It was actually done in preparation for the recording of Chiki Boom’s Saya Kreatif segment. Aeroplane Fridge Magnet Last Sunday, it was finally aired on TV2. This episode is extra special to me as they recorded it in my very own studio, Crafty-Crafted Studio. It is also extra special as Ethan is extremely cheeky in this particular episode. He can’t stop […]

Kids Craft: Papier Mache Rocket

Remember we did a papier mache aeroplane pencil case during the school holidays? Ethan loves it so much that I decided to make another one, a rocket this time for him. We were too busy during the school holidays to post this up but yeah, he has TWO papier mache pencil cases now. One for his stationery and another for his colour pencils. He brought the aeroplane and the rocket to Kindy and guess what? […]

Avocado Milk Smoothie Recipe

I’ve never tried avocado in my life believe it or not. Never know if it’s nice or not until last weekend when I was shopping and saw them (Australian Avocados) selling at RM10.90 for a pack of 3. I asked Darling if he would like to give it a try and he said why not since there are so many health benefits of eating avocados.  Avocados are packed with disease-fighting antioxidants. That alone is enough […]

2D Cartoon Bag Price

I’ve seen 2D Cartoon Bags online for quite a while but always wondered where to get them. I know we can purchase them online but you know me, I don’t do online shopping.  Last weekend, we were walking along The Curve’s street bazaar when I chanced upon these 2D Cartoon bags. I stopped immediately to have a look at them. I have no idea how much these are selling elsewhere as I’ve never bothered before. […]

Man of Steel 50% off Promo

Last year, when Angry Bird was the hype, we bought Ethan the bedsheet set because it was selling at half price from RM99 to RM49.50. We thought it was such a steal that we bought it without thinking twice and happily blogged about the Angry Bird bedspread.  Ethan’s Angry Bird bedspread with matching pyjamas Last weekend, we were in Aeon and saw the latest promo – Man of Steel. The Man of Steel bedspread is […]

Monsters University – PETROSAINS Promotional Campaign

The school holidays means going out ‘jalan-jalan’ around town. We went to Petrosains as Ethan loves it here. The last we were here was a year ago when he spent 5 hours exploring Petrosains! You can read all about it here. This time around, Petrosains has a movie tie-up with Monsters University.  Ethan happily took a picture with the monsters and blended quite well I must say. He looks just like one of them! LoL! […]

Buffet Ramadhan bersama Jaafar Onn dan Haiza di Dorsett Grand, Subang

Ramadhan Buffet

In about a little over a month, our Muslim friends will be ushering the holy month of Ramadhan.  It has always been our favourite to walk around Ramadhan Bazaars scouting for food and more but sometimes, the scorching heat is simply unbearable. When that happens, I prefer to just dine somewhere cool and comfortable. Dalam masa sebulan lebih, rakan-rakan Islam kita akan menyambut ketibaan bulan suci Ramadhan. Ia sentiasa menjadi kegemaran kami untuk berjalan-jalan cari […]

Grandma’s Home-made Nyonya Chang (dumpling)

That time of the year is approaching again with everyone busy making their own rice dumpling and showing them off on Facebook.  For the uninitiated ones such as me, we can only wish upon a star that some kind souls will be generous enough to give us some. Whenever we speak of rice dumplings, my memories will immediately be of my late Grandma’s home-made Nyonya Chang we fondly call Kueh Chang. I remembered when I […]

The Ride

I’ve shared several mysterious videos lately namely a strange incident on a highway in Germany. CCTV Footage shows a cargo truck being lifted off the highway by a strange light. It seems that whatever was pursuing the truck was after the cargo which went missing immediately after. Is everyone just overreacting or could this really be something extraterrestrial? I also shared a video of a strange vehicle caught on camera in a tunnel in Germany. […]

Mabel’s 17th Birthday Celebration

We were in Malacca last weekend for several occasions and one of them was my niece Mabel’s 17th birthday. Darling had known my nieces since they were very young and just look at how grown up they are now. Makes me feel so OLD! The parents catered Malay food as they’ll be having Malay guests too. The catering comes with a SATAY GIRL who looks exactly like my eldest sis :P The customary Birthday Song session. […]
