Samsung KidsTime Apps for Kids

Remember I mentioned in my previous post that we went for a video shoot last Saturday? Well, I can finally reveal what that shoot was for :D Can you see that I was showing Ethan something on the tablet? We were actually exploring a new app by Samsung called Samsung KidsTime. Samsung KidsTime is a new application that helps in managing and improving child development. Ethan and I were introduced to Samsung KidsTime on the […]

A quick trip to KL Tower

Ironically, after ranting on my previous blog post regarding people always commenting that Ayden is skinny, I caught a chubby picture of Ayden today. There! Doesn’t this make you feel like biting his cheeks? :D I had a blogging event to attend too in Menara KL today hence Ayden being all dressed up. I’ve not been to Menara KL for ages! The last I came here was with Darling decades ago during our courting days. […]

Stop Saying My Toddler Is Skinny

One of my greatest pet peeves as a mother is when people see my toddler and start going, “Oh he’s so skinny!” I got that with Ethan and now history repeats with Ayden. This was Ethan @ 14 months old This is Ayden at almost 14 months old.  Both Ethan and Ayden were born small but caught up and tripled their birth weight in no time. They have chubby cheeks as a baby but people […]

A Day in I-City

The last time we stepped foot in i-City Shah Alam was in 2012 on the first day opening of their Water World. You can read about our I-City Water World experience here. A month ago, we dropped by i-City again after visiting a friend in Klang and oh boy, the place is so different now. We are finally here at Red Carpet, Malaysia’s first all-stars interactive wax museum. No, we did not enter as I […]

Baby Sign Language

I bring Ayden along with me all the time for my blogging events and most of my blogger friends are amazed at how well we communicate. Well, Ayden can’t really speak yet. All he can say now are just THERE, MILK and BREAD but what he can do is communicate with us via baby sign language. I read about baby sign language before Ayden was born. I learned that babies understand though they can’t really […]

Our Evening of Video Recording

Our Saturday started off as usual with Ethan going for his Taekwando class and returning home excitedly with his green belt. He’s a green belt now. That is equivalent to Green Lantern. Before this he was a Minion (yellow belt) :P After that he showered, took a quick lunch and we hurried off to Westin KL for a video shoot for a client. I shall not divulge more about it until the video or the product is […]

Meeting the In-Laws

Yesterday, we accompanied my father in-law to his daughter’s wedding food tasting. It was also my first time meeting her parents in-law. I was surprised to see how young and chatty her mother in-law is and how friendly she was; making effort to keep the conversation going throughout lunch. My father in-law with his very cute grandsons. Haha.. Yes lah, MY sons :P Ethan was munching on nuts hence that mouth >_< Gosh my eye […]

I Don’t Want To Touch A Dog

I don’t want to touch a dog. I don’t know why people are dying to touch or pat them but you won’t see me doing it. I won’t touch a dog. I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it and I’m telling you as it is, I don’t like dogs and I don’t see anything wrong with that. There’s only one thing I dislike more than dogs and that is anyone who tells me […]

Breastfeeding a toddler

I did not manage to breastfeed Ethan for more than 3 months. By the time he was 4 months old, I fell sick, my supply dropped and I gradually weaned him off. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and support back then. I feel much regret each time I think about it. Every time he gets sick, I’ll blame myself for not trying harder to breastfeed him. With Ayden, I was very determine […]

Reunited and it feels so good.. or not?

Late last year, thanks to technology, I was reunited with my former school mates. We had a great time catching up online. I was nervous initially as it has been a couple of decades since I last saw or heard of most of these people. The thing about reuniting with your old friends is facing the living ghosts of your past. These friends remember you for what you are back in school. Now, talking about […]

Your Child Is Your Mirror

Not too long ago Ethan came home from school telling us that a classmate of his was sent to the Discipline Teacher for a misconduct in class. I asked him what did that classmate of his do and he told me that he shoved another classmate against the wall, strangled him, put his fingers in that boy’s mouth and tried to tear it open for taking his eraser. The attacker basically had an outburst; shouting and getting violent over […]

How to get your kids to do their revision?

It’s the exam week this and next week. Today is an off day though to accommodate the UPSR exam. Since last weekend we have been struggling to get Ethan to do his revision. Remember in my post here I mentioned I had not a productive weekend? That was because we deliberately stayed home so Ethan can do his revision but guess what? He did not. He chose to play instead. My blood boiled telling him […]

Ride-On Car

Remember in my previous post I mentioned we went car shopping last weekend? The first stop was at AEON 1Utama and boy I tell you the service sucks big time. The sales person scolded us when we asked if there is any display unit for us to test.  Sales person: Tak ada. Kalau awak bayar dulu baru saya boleh pasang dan awak boleh test. Me: Apa? Bayar dulu? Baru test? Kalau dah bayar buat apa […]

Bird Watching

How was your long weekend? Mine was not very productive. Darling was caught in a flood. He managed to drive through it without stalling the car but lost the number plate. Our poor number plate must be drifting somewhere, alone and afraid. Think Cast Away :( Did not get to do things that I planned to do due to some unforeseen circumstances but hey, at least we get to go window shopping on Saturday. I […]

1 Utama Water Piazza

It’s no secret our family frequents 1 Utama all the time. Several days ago, a friend of mine asked me what we actually do there since we are there like so often. He asked, “how much shopping can you do-lah?” Well, to answer him, shopping is not the only thing we do in 1 Utama. There are a whole lot of activities for the entire family that we just can never get bored of this […]

Bari-Uma Ramen @ Jaya Shopping Centre

When I was in college, I used to frequent Jaya Supermarket in Seksyen 14, PJ or do they call it Jaya Shopping Centre already then? I’m not too sure but we always referred to it as Jaya Supermarket then. That was like a couple of decades ago. The old ‘Jaya Supermarket’ had been torn down (or rather collapsed) and rebuilt into a new shopping mall now. We were around the area last week and decided to […]

#MoreLife Zumba Classes

I know I’m not the neatest person on Earth. My mother cringed when she opened my pantry cabinet to see our Nestum 3in1 scattered all over. The reason it is like that is because Darling is the one who prepares hot drinks for me in the mornings while I fusses with Ayden and rushes Ethan for school. I used to organise them neatly but gave up after a while. Whatever works for Darling works with […]
