Colour Me Young

Let me tell you something, I was once young and carefree too. Yeah, kinda hard to believe right seeing how auntyfied I am today. Fresh out of college into the corporate world, Darling and I never had to think twice in taking risks. Though Darling has a fear of height, we made sure we climb the Harbour Bridge in Sydney Australia so we can cross that off our ‘To Do’ list. We also had all […]

Swimming With A Float Neck Ring In A Public Pool

Hello! How are you all doing? How was your long weekend? As for us, we spent the evenings swimming away in the pool. When I was pregnant with Ayden, I swam at least once a week. I can feel Ayden kicking me each time I went for a dip. I sensed then that he loves water and true enough, this boy of mine loves swimming and splashing. His first swim was when he was 3 […]

Suria KLCC Lake Symphony Light and Sound Show

We did not go back to our hometown during the long weekend break. We decided to stay put in KL and explore the city. One of the things we did was to check out the KLCC Light and Sound Show at Lake Symphony. Our first Light and Sound show experience was the awesome Crane Dance in Resort World Sentosa, Singapore. It was so good we went back there again before the end of our Singapore trip. Check […]

Raya decorative street lights @ Sunway

This year is such a disappointment when it comes to Raya decorations in shopping malls in the Klang Valley. Nothing worth to blog about hence you don’t see me posting any Raya decor BUT I can always count on the decorative street lighting in Sunway to cheer me up come any festive season. I love their Christmas street lights. Always beautiful, always mesmerizing. Now, even their Raya street lighting is beautifully done. Let’s take a […]

10 Crab Flavours Buffet

Chatz Brasserie PARKROYAL KL is well-known for their quality buffets especially their weekend Seafood Buffet Dinner. I remember clearly last October right after my confinement, we brought little Ayden for his first makan outing to non-other than Chatz for the Seafood Buffet Dinner. Let me share a picture of Ethan enjoying the fresh prawns that he caught back then: Those prawns were so fresh and good that he refused to share. Click here to read the […]

Easy Homemade Chicken Stock for Babies

Since Ayden started eating solid food, I’ve been cooking porridge for him every day without fail. You can check out some of the porridge recipes here. He’ll be 11 months old in a week’s time and I want to add varieties into his meals. I am feeling like feeding him pasta so I boiled chicken stock. Homemade chicken stock is better for babies instead of those commercial ones as it is not encouraged to feed […]

Thistle Port Dickson

We went to Port Dickson again last weekend. This time to celebrate Ethan’s birthday. With Ayden still young, turning 11 month old this month end, we do not even bother to travel anywhere far as it will be very tiring for US as well as Ayden himself. Therefore when Darling told Ethan that he can pick a place to go for his birthday, Darling also reminded him that he is only allowed to choose a […]

Wakudoki Your Way to Tokyo

Reminiscing the time Darling San and I in Japan years ago. Kon’nichiwa. It means ‘hello’ in case you don’t know. Today, I’m feeling Japanese so we are going to learn a couple of Japanese words ^_^ Repeat after me, “Waku-Waku” VERY GOOD! Now say, “Doki-Doki” Wow excellent people I have here. I’m impressed! Do you know what you just say? LoL! Let me enlighten you. ‘Waku-Waku’ is a term in Japanese used to describe when […]

My Kind of Breakfast

Wanna see what I eat every weekday? Well I say weekday because weekends I tend to relax and eat a totally different kind of food. Actually weekends are for me to let go and indulge in anything and everything I feel like eating (such as nasi lemak, roti canai and the whole works) while weekdays are more of clean eating for me (but not overnight oats). So here’s what you’ll usually see on my breakfast […]

Crystal Piano

Have you ever seen a crystal piano for real? I haven’t until last Monday. We were in Piano Station where I saw, touched and took pictures of it! Lomence Crystal Grand Piano These modern crystal pianos look like they come out of fairy tales. It would be super awesome if there is one that is totally transparent but the price for that will definitely be sky high. The ones here are already hitting the roof! […]

Gartien Pineapple Cakes – Mid Autumn Edition

During the Mid Autumn Festival last year, I was trapped at home doing my confinement as I just delivered Ayden then. I ranted a lot on Facebook on me missing out on all those mooncake makan-makan with friends that some of my caring friends took the initiative to send some to my house. I was really happy receiving all those goodies then. Today, I received a box of Gartien Pineapple Cakes from a friend in Penang. He remembered people […]

Mangosteen Lollipops

We went back to my in-law’s place last weekend and got these load full of local fruits from my father in-law’s orchard.  Durian Don’t know what’s the name of this fruit. Is it pulasan?  Rambutans.  Talking about rambutans and any other fruits, in my house, if I don’t peel them, no one will eat them. So each time we bring home all these fruits, I will have to peel and keep them in a container […]

Oreo Transformers to bring us to Hollywood

I can never get enough seeing the kids playing together. It warms the heart, every time, without fail. Oh-oh! #UnhappyKids alert! Must do something quick to bring back those smiles! I told them that we’ll go catch the movie in the cinema so they can see how BIG those Transformers really are. The big brother soooo happy I tell you! He has not been to the cinema since Ayden was born so you can imagine […]

Themed ‘Aroma Semenanjung’ it presents a taste of Malaysia Truly Asia, featuring multi-ethnic delicacies of Malay, Indian, Chinese, Nyonya and Eurasian offering a diverse menu of over 100 varieties each day. We love dining in Cinnamon Coffee House as it is very spacious. We can bring in Ayden’s stroller easily and there is ample of space to walk about without knocking into […]

Super Baby

We bumped into my cousin and her cute little sleeping baby last weekend. I asked if I can wake him up and the Daddy said that if he cries, I’ll have to pacify him. Haha. Knowing me, do you think I woke the baby up?  Baby Jax sleeping safe and sound but woke up eventually. NO, I did not wake him up :P BUT he did cry. I don’t know why but his crying face […]

Fairy Tale Puppy Love

They were already friends way back in 2012 but they were just young children then. Ethan and Samantha during our holiday in Johor back in 2012. Read about our stay together here. Fast forward to the present, they are big boy and girl […]

Winter Melon Tea Recipe

Winter melon is slightly cool in nature. Drinking winter melon tea in these prolonged hot days is a great way to combat heat.  It is sweet in taste, helps to detoxify, clears out mucus and phlegm and promotes digestion. Winter melon’s diuretic effect helps to eliminate water retention. It contains potassium that helps flush out sugars and waste through our urinary tract. Not a fan of drinking packet drinks, I like to boil my own winter melon tea. […]
