Hari Raya Decor @ IPC Shopping Centre

With Hari Raya fast approaching, I’m way lagging in my mall decor hunt as we’ve been tied down with projects after projects that I just can’t make the time to hop to as many malls as I wish :( We managed to drop by IPC Shopping Centre (Ikano Power Centre) last week and though their Raya decor is nothing to shout about, Ethan LOVES it! Why? Because their decors are in 2D Cartoon! I thought […]

Ain’t No Weather Bringing Me Down

It was a wet weekend wasn’t it? Luckily we still managed to slot in two swimming sessions right after the rain or it would have been a very boring long weekend. On Friday just as we were about to enter the car to go swimming, it started to drizzle and then rain. I quickly grabbed my brand NEW ‘money can’t buy’ umbrella that I got from Nuffnang. I’ve never used it so I did not […]

Genting Theme Park will be replaced by Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park

Darling, Ethan and I all have Genting’s Annual Passport but Darling’s and mine expired some time ago. We wanted to renew it but were not allowed. We were quite pissed then as Ethan’s passport is still valid and without ours, we have to fork out a large sum of money to enter the Theme Park together. I brought the matter up to the management and was told that the Theme Park will be closed sometime […]

Learning the art of painting

The kindergarten that Ethan is attending is kinda ‘weird’ in a sense that though they have Art & Craft in their timetable, they don’t do much BUT they’d encourage us to sign Ethan up for the additional Art & Craft classes held every Thursday AFTER schooling hours with an additional fee. Some of his friends go for this and Ethan’s teacher is always commenting that though Ethan is doing great in every subject, he is […]

Milk Carton Sailboat Craft

Every once in a while I like to buy milk in a carton. We don’t drink them too often but we do-lah once in a while. Knowing me, you’ll know that I don’t throw away things easily. I’ll try to come out with something before disposing them off.  So we did this – Milk Carton Sailboat. Ethan and his milk carton sailboat.  Ethan enjoying his glass of chocolate milk. I super love chocolate milk! Ethan […]

Ethan’s 6th Birthday

My little boy is finally not so little anymore. He is SIX now!  He has never celebrated his birthday in school. The reason being he has never been to school prior to April this year. So this year he is very excited counting down to his birthday so he can celebrate with all his friends in kindy.  The preparation for his birthday started last week when we shopped for his party pack goodies. We came […]

1Utama’s Hari Raya Decoration

I was in 1Utama today to check out the completed Hari Raya decoration. I was not prepared to be amazed as I saw the initial stage when they were building it and it did not look too impressive then. But surprise, surprise! I was impressed! Themed “Pillars of Celebration” I think it is a wise and practical idea to have the ‘stage’ on the roof while the shoppers shop below. I saw dancers practising up […]

Hari Raya Decor @ The Curve

After Sunway Giza, my next stop on Hari Raya decor hunt is at The Curve. It brings us back to the 60’s and while they aim to make us reminisce the nostalgic 60’s, I couldn’t as I was not even born yet then :P But what I do relate is how life was so much simpler than. Look at the ol’ school cinema. This was the kind of cinemas I frequent with my friends, when […]

Turbo movie date

Thanx to Nuffnang we got to catch Turbo at TGV, 1 Utama last night. Turbo is about a garden snail who has big dreams and a freak accident might just be the answer to everything. We are so happy that it was not in 3D as I don’t really fancy wearing those 3D glasses throughout a movie and I think it’s safe to say that you won’t be missing a lot watching this in 2D […]

Keputusan Penempatan Tahun 1/2014

After so many sleepless nights, D-day is finally here! THE day to check the result for Ethan’s Primary 1 school placement application. I was so scared to even log-in to check the result. I know I won’t be able to take it if he got rejected and we had to appeal and wait until November again for the next result. But no matter how scared I was, I had to do it. We have to […]

Birthday dinner @ Happy City Seafood Steamboat

It was Darling’s birthday over the weekend so I told him that Ethan and I will treat him to dinner but with one condition – HE’s paying! LoL! I guess all Stay At Home Mothers do that, don’t we? Whatever it is, it is HIS money that will be paying :P He asked me what I wanted to eat and I said STEAMBOAT! We went to this newly opened steamboat outlet in Dataran Sunway called […]

THE Special Birthday Cake

July is a good month as both Darling and Ethan were born in this special month. Their birthdays are exactly a week apart and it’s good because we get to eat cake celebrate TWICE! Unlike previous years where I always failed to get a cake for Darling (coz I don’t drive and each time I requested for him to drive me to the bakery he’ll conveniently ignore) this year I managed to get one for […]

It’s that time of the year to go mall decor hunting again. As usual, Sunway Giza mall is one of the first to set up their festive decor.  Sunway Giza Hari Raya decor Their decor might be very minimal and simple but it’s beautiful. It’s like having a real kampung house right smack in the hustle and bustle of the city life. It really makes us want to go back to our hometown to celebrate […]

How to Remember the Order of the Planets in our Solar System

We live on a ball of rock called Earth in a vast expanse called space. Besides us, there are other planets, billions of stars, and other bits of rock and dust in space. The name for all this stuff is the Universe. Ethan came home from Kindy the other day with this box filled with planets. I find it very creative that the teachers got the kids to paint a tissue box black and paste […]

Cucur Ikan Bilis Recipe (Anchovies Fritters)

Cucur Ikan Bilis or Cekodok Ikan Bilis is many Malaysians’ favourite snack for tea. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, they won’t last long on the kitchen table as we would usually gobble them all up in no time. With the holy month of Ramadhan approaching really soon, I believe cucur ikan bilis will be sold widely in Bazaar Ramadhan everywhere. I remembered buying them each time I frequent a Ramadhan Bazaar.  […]

How to halve an egg

How do you cut a hard boiled egg in half? You can’t use a wire cutter unless you are planning to slice them into pieces. We can’t use knife as well as it will ruin the egg yolk. So I use what my Mom has been using – thread. I bet many of you do the same right?  Quickly pull a thread through the egg and there you have it, the perfect hard boiled egg […]

Simple Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Whenever we go out shopping, Ethan will always request to purchase a cup of smoothie. That cup of smoothie can be quite costly and at the rate Ethan and I hang out at the mall (EVERY day!) I can go bust any time! Ethan and his must-have smoothie. But ever since I got my PapaBlend blender, we’ve been making smoothies often at home. It is much more economical to buy your own fruit and yogurt […]
