Chinese New Year Snack : Seaweed Roll

For the past couple of years (or maybe slightly more) I’ve not been making anything for Chinese New Year. I was always busy with Ang Pow decor workshops that I hardly have time to be in the kitchen. This year though, I tried making at least ONE snack and the chosen snack is non other than the simplest of the lot – Seaweed roll. Nori sheets, popiah skin and egg white. That’s all we need […]

New KIA Optima K5 Launched

It all started from a conversation with Darling’s friend Victor who was planning to get a new car. He was talking to Darling about which executive saloon car should he get with a budget of RM140K-RM160K. Darling mentioned the likes of Camry and Accord but I found something more interesting! The Kia Optima launched in 2010 took the world by storm with its gorgeous styling. Now it is time for an update with the 2014 […]


Teething toy vs fingers

Recently, Ayden always bite his lips and also suck his fingers. He’ll either bite or suck his lips. Am puzzled why is it so as Ethan doesn’t go through this stage. I posted the above picture on my FB and most of my friends said he might be teething with itchy gums except for one who cheekily said he’s like that because he wants my boobs (Joanna you know it’s YOU! :P) Anyway, we bought […]

Remember we were in Sunway Pyramid 2 weeks ago? Besides their beautiful CNY decor, they also have an archery booth. Ethan wanted to give it a try so Darling paid RM10 for 12 arrows. Ethan’s first time being Robin Hood :) The person in charge guiding Ethan on the proper way to handle the bow and arrow.  It was quite tough as this requires some strength.  Ethan placing the arrow on his own.  Propelling arrows […]

One Utama’s Chinese New Year decor 2014

I’ve always sang praises for One Utama’s festive decors. I’ve complimented them so much until certain parties thought that I’m working with their PR or something. I tell you, I have nothing with them ok? They don’t even invite me for their launches or anything eventhough I’ve supported them for so long *cries silently in a corner* This year as usual, I went mall hopping for the best Chinese New Year decor and 1U was […]


Koufu Trendy Chinese Cuisine @ One City

Though I’m a Malaccan I spent most of my growing up years in Sitiawan, Perak. Unlike my Peranakan parents, I am quite fond of the Fuzhou food there. I left Sitiawan for college in KL but my parents remained there. Each time I go back to Sitiawan, my mother will buy me a hot bowl of lu mien from the famous aunty in the market. I remember referring to her as “pasar aunty”. That was […]


Girls worry too much..

Sunway Pyramid Chinese New Year Decor

We were in Sunway Pyramid today and to our surprise, their Chinese New Year decor for the Horse year is already up! Okaylah, CNY is also less than a month away anyway…  Ethan and Ayden on a horse ride :P Haha. Kesian Ethan pulling a bullock cart! There are white horses too. Those horses look quite real that my eldest sister was fooled when she first saw them.  It is not Chinese New Year without […]


My Breastfeeding Journey: DIY Nursing Top

I direct latch Ayden. Means I do not pump out my milk for bottle feeding. That also means I will need to nurse him whenever we go out. I used to run to the nearest nursing rooms whenever we are out shopping but that is too troublesome as sometimes the nursing rooms are all occupied.  One fine day I braved myself to nurse in public using my shawl to cover him but I find it […]
