Telescope Art Paper Holder

Ethan’s in Primary One now. That means bringing homework home, artwork included. I can’t stand how his art paper always ended looking like salted vege (all crumpled) at the end of the day so I made him this the other day – a telescope art paper holder. I didn’t actually make a telescope initially. Just a normal paper holder but after a chat with my Whatsapp group friends, the idea of telescope came to mind.  […]


Choosing the Right Book for Babies

When it comes to books for babies, remember this ONE rule – wipeable. I always get glossy wipe clean books for babies. The reason being they won’t easily tear or clump when soaked with baby’s saliva and at the end of the day we can easily wipe them clean and keep them away.  I have this old book of Ethan’s that is not a wipe clean book. It’s a touch and feel book so I […]


Hit and Run

Yesterday evening we went to fetch Ethan from school. Darling parked his car by the roadside and walked to the school while Ayden and I waited in the car. I was singing to Ayden when I heard a loud bang and a sudden jolt. I looked up to see a car sped off. I quickly took down the registration number. My heart was pumping so hard it felt like it was going to explode. With […]


Dry Spell

What do we call the phenomenon that is currently affecting the Klang Valley? Do we call it drought? Or dry spell? I wanted to use the term ‘dry spell’ but a check at urban dictionary states that dry spell is to go for a period of time (usually longer than shorter) without something; sex, drugs etc. Yikes! I’m certainly NOT talking about abstinence from sex!  :-D In that case I think we’ll use the term […]


My birthday bash @ Philea Resort & Spa, Malacca

Oh my goodness, I just realised I haven’t publish this post. It was supposed to be published last month but I’ve been so caught up with Chinese New Year Ang Pow lantern workshops that I absolutely forgotten to click PUBLISH! >_< My birthday was in December and I had a private birthday party in Philea Resort & Spa in my hometown, Malacca.  Some of my friends. I bet you can name some of them :D […]


How To Fold The Korean Lamb Head Towel (Jjimjilbang)

I tell you one thing. When I first saw a friend folding this towel for her baby, I have no idea that this is the famous lamb head towels that you see in Korean drama series. My idea of Korea is Psy’s Gangnam Style. That’s it. Only that. I’m not a K-pop fan or anything so you can understand my lack of intelligence in regards to that part of the world. But now I understand […]


Taekwondo @ school

Ever since Ethan was exposed to Muay Thai back in 2012, he has been dying to learn more but we never got to it. Ethan’s wish of learning some martial art finally materialised last weekend. He has been pestering us to let him join the taekwondo lessons held in our neighbourhood but we’ve been putting that off coz it is held at night in the open field. The idea of them learning taekwondo in the […]


Caterpillar Joke

Ayden has a hand-me-down friend, a caterpillar from big brother Ethan. They are not exactly the best buddies out there as the caterpillar doesn’t laugh at his jokes… And now we all know why :P


When the aircond died…

It has been more than a couple of days now that the aircond in our master bedroom went kaput. Since it kaput-ed on a weekday, there is nothing much we can do. We cant get the aircond guy to come over oso coz Darling wont be in and I never, ever let a stranger into the house without William’s presence. So the next best thing to do is to ‘shift’ into the guest room. It […]


Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup

Since the arrival of Ayden, I don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen anymore but I can’t stand eating out all the time so I try my best to prepare something convenient yet nutritious – soup. I am also fully breastfeeding Ayden so soup is one of the major milk booster for me. Today’s soup is the simplest of  the lot – Chinese Black Bean with Red Dates Chicken Soup. A popular soup […]


Best playground hunt: Setia EcoHill Park

It’s been a while since we last spotted a nice playground to be featured in our ‘Best Playground’ series. We had previously featured the playgrounds in Pusat Sains Negara and Desa Park City in our blog. The playground we are featuring today is located at Setia EcoHill Park, Semenyih. The ParC, Setia EcoHill, Semenyih Ethan and most of the boys in the park love climbing here. While the older children hang around this cool looking ‘cage’. […]


Good fortune this Chinese New Year

Hello everybody! Gong Xi Fa Cai! How was your long break? Most of you should be back at work already right? We had such a blue time trying to get back to routine. Ethan almost did not want to go back to school. Let’s take a quick look back at my Chinese New Year celebration: My CNY started with a toss of octopus yee sang at my in-law’s. Chinese New Year ootd. Selfie before heading […]


First encounter with a …

We were at my parent’s place. While relaxing under the shady mango tree, Ayden saw a furry creature. I’ll let Ayden tell you the rest of the story … “So I was sitting on Grandma’s lap when this huge thing came to me. It definitely did not look like any of Mommy’s relative. It has two long ears on its head and a very funny looking face. It walks funny too. It’s like as if […]
