Buka Puasa Buffet Dinner @ Dorsett Grand Subang

We had a great time last year joining our Muslim friends breaking fast with celebrity chef Jaafar Onn and songstress Haiza at Dorsett Grand Subang. In case you missed it, you may refer to my post here. Break fast with Celebrity Chef Jaafar Onn in Dorsett Grand Subang This year, to our delight, this fabulous duo teamed up again to brighten up our evening. Chef Jaafar Onn has his own action station and together with Haiza, they serenade […]


Green Bean with Sago Dessert (Bubur Kacang Hijau)

I am on a tong sui frenzy and have been boiling a different tong sui every day for the past couple of weeks mainly due to the scorching weather we are experiencing lately. I’ve been repeating Barley, Loh Han Guo, Red Bean and Black Glutinous Rice and Sweet Peanut Soup as these are clearly Ethan’s favourite. I have always wanted to boil green bean or mung bean soup but always ended up procrastinating as both […]


Universal Studio, Hollywood!

Last year, Ethan had the opportunity to do some ads and work with a TV station on a craft segment. He gets paid for each episode he starred in. At only 5 years old, he doesn’t really know the real value of his earnings. What we did was to open a Savings Account for him and all his earnings went direct into his account. We did however reward him with toys for his effort. Ethan […]


Learning the Practical Way

Ethan is turning 7 next month. While it was generally ‘easy’ raising him, he drives me crazy at times too. I am lucky in a sense that Ethan is a bit smart. Book smart that is. Teach him anything and that boy can comprehend it quite effortlessly. But because he is ‘too smart’, he sometimes thinks that he can outsmart us, his parents.  Very often, he’ll argue about the simplest of things. Maybe it is […]


Sweet Peanut Soup

The scorching hot weather is really unbearable these days. To keep us cool, I boiled sweet peanut soup the other day. Sweet peanut soup is said to be heat-relieving. Peanuts are rich in energy and contain health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health. It’s pretty simple to boil this delicious, refreshing dessert. Unlike common believes that it takes the whole night of boiling to achieve that melt-in-the-mouth consistency, it took […]


Ethan’s Very First Sports Day

Friday was Ethan’s first Sports Day ever. That boy never had the chance to attend any Sports Day in preschool as he was home-schooled pretty much all the way except the last 7 months when I found out I was pregnant and sent him to Kindy due to my bad morning sickness. A week before the Sports Day, his teacher told the students involved that they are to be present in school at 7.30am. Darling complained […]


Sex Talk

July is coming and that means double celebration as both Ethan and Darling’s birthdays fall just a week apart. On the way home from school today, Ethan had a chat with his father regarding his birthday and how he wants to celebrate it this year. Talking about birthdays, that boy asked the father why wasn’t he born on 31 August just like his brother, Ayden. It would be super cool to be born a Merdeka […]


Loh Han Guo Recipe

Loh Han Guo herbal tea is a great thirst quencher especially during the super hot days. Loh Han Guo also known as Buddha’s fruit or Monk’s fruit helps to nourish the lungs, promotes secretion of body fluids, relieves cough and reduces phlegm.  It’s super simple to boil this delicious, refreshing tea at home. It doesn’t take too much of my time either.  I used minimal ingredients (Loh Han Guo, dried longans and winter melon strips) […]


FUN Snow Sleds @ 1 Utama

We were in 1 Utama today and stumbled upon a FROZEN area much to our surprise. It’s not Christmas yet but it’s snowing in 1 Utama! “Let It Go… Let It Go!” Haha.. Yep! I heard children singing that famous soundtrack from Frozen! What surprised us was the snow sledding activity. It looks like so much FUN and Ethan pestered me to go check if he can try it and sure enough, he CAN! Not only […]


Ramadhan Feast Under The Stars @ The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. If you are looking for a unique “buka puasa” dining experience this Ramadhan, the Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur offers a delightful evening of dining amidst lush tropical gardens facing an exquisite view of the Saujana Hotel’s lake pool. Charmingly lit for a more twilight ambience, this beautiful “al fresco” setting feast on a sumptuous smorgasbord of over 140 traditional and regional Malaysia specialties as well as […]


Subang International Air Carnival 2014

Brought the family to the 1st Subang International Air Carnival 2014 at the all-new Subang Skypark today. Themed “Transforming Malaysia’s Aerospace Education & Career Opportunities”, the carnival sees participation of more than 53 local and international aviation players as well as training academies and government agencies. Among the 53 companies that take part include Firefly, Malindo Air, NADI, Air Asia, CTRM Aviation, the Malaysian Armed Forces, Systematic Aviation Services, Bell Helicopters, MAS Wings, Hawker Pacific, Department of […]


Mango and durian feast

My parents have these two beautiful shady mango trees in their backyard where we always hang out at. That was Ethan (not Ayden) when he was 6 months old under that very same mango tree.  He will be turning 7 this July. Time flies and this year, we are blessed with plentiful harvest from both trees. Ethan being the city kid has never plucked mangoes in his life.  He saw the Grandpa doing it and […]


Attention Seeking Baby

Ayden is 9 months old. He is more independent now. I can leave him in his cot while I go to the bathroom or kitchen and he’ll play on his own. He isn’t like this before. Previously he was very attention seeking. He’ll wail his lungs out if I leave him in the cot and disappear from his sight. He made me run back to him immediately to check if he’s alright but after some […]


Amazing balancing butterfly craft

A friend reminded me recently that I made a really cool, magical bird back in our primary school days that got them all awed. Funny that I don’t remember about it until he mentioned it. I’ve forgotten how to do it though so I asked my sister if she remembers and sure enough, she did. We discussed further how to actually make it and today, I made it with Ethan. This is a really fun […]


Growing Longer Legs : Genetics and Growth

For every child born, his/her height is determined primarily by genetic factors. Doubling a child’s height at age two is a close predictor to estimate the child’s height as an adult as a child normally reaches half of his or her adult height by that time. If that is the case, Ethan might not grow into a tall, dark and handsome young man. As it is now at almost 7 years old, he is already lagging behind when it […]


The Kitchen’s Instant Kampua

I’ve been reading his blog for years and I must tell you that 80 or 90% of his entries MUST touch about kampua noodles somehow or rather that it made me as curious as a cat on what’s so special about these kampua noodles in Sibu. He always teases me about making that trip to Sibu so I can eat all the kampua I want. Ok, maybe he wasn’t teasing. Maybe he seriously means it. He is […]


Origami Whale

It’s the school holidays and that means planning some activities to keep the boys occupied. I did an impromptu origami session with Ethan a couple of days ago but he doesn’t know what we are making. LoL OK! Looks like I have to write up a lesson plan to introduce WHALEs to Ayden. Hmm… where can I find an edible whale? :D
