CNY mall decoration: Sunway Pyramid

Sunway Pyramid is always one of the earliest to put up their festive decoration. It is a fluffy Chinese New Year over at Sunway Pyramid this year.  Themed “Cheery Woolly Spring”, the mall is dotted with adorable fluffy sheep. Ethan and Ayden went crazy over those super cute and colourful sheep of various sizes. Ayden mimicking the “Boy Who Cried Wolf”, his favourite bedtime story :D OK lah their decor. Kids were happy. It was like a […]

Chinese New Year is all about families, friends and loved ones getting together under one roof for a favourably and promising moments. It is our first time dining here at Ee Chinese Cuisine, Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya. The boys were really excited to be here. Eastin Hotel has always been […]

You may want to make this beautiful flower lantern.. But you’ll need a whopping 60 pieces of angpow packets for that! Or you may want to make this equally gorgeous ball lantern… But you’ll still need 30 pieces of angpow packets for that! What if you only have 12 pieces of angpow to spare? Fret not for you can still make this: 12-pcs Angpow Lantern All you need is only 12 pieces of angpow packets […]


Sakae Sushi Salmon Yee Sang

Chinese New Year is less than a month away. We are getting busy spring cleaning, making angpow lanterns, shopping and more to usher the 2015 Lunar New Year. It’s also a must for some to buy a box of Yee Sang to toss at home with the family on CNY day. Same goes for us. Last Saturday, we were at Sakae Sushi not to tapao their Yee Sang yet but to dine in and lou sang […]


Si Chuan Dou Hua Chinese New Year menu

Chinese New Year is less than a month away. Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday we welcomed 2015 and now it’s almost CNY already? My family was invited to a CNY feast at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur last Thursday. It was our first Chinese New Year lou sang for the year so I made sure we dressed up for it. I was extremely happy to still be able to fit […]


Homeschooling a Toddler – Colour Sorting

Continuation from our first homeschool activity of beading/threading, we are going to proceed with the second activity a toddler can do at home today. It is never too early to expose a toddler to the world of colours. If you watch your toddler closely, you’ll discover that he/she will usually have a preference towards a particular colour. Always start with that colour to capture his interest.  My 16 month old Ayden loves playing with building […]


The Shepherdoo’s Valentine’s Day Menu

We were at The Shepherdoo Restaurant & Lounge recently to try out their Valentine’s Day menu. Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th February this year (and every year) if you really don’t know. The Shepherdoo Restaurant & Lounge, Sky Park @ One City Priced at RM168/per couple, we were served the following: Starter (2 sets) Smoked Duck Breast Salad with Caramelized Citrus Dressing We started our Valentine’s meal with this tangy, simple yet refreshing salad […]


Amani Nakupanda Nakupanda We We…

Amani Nakupanda Nakupanda We We… Because everyone’s taking a pic with these pandas so how can we not? Especially since pandas are Ayden’s favourite.. Hug, hug panda. Ayden wanted to bring them home >_< And when he saw 1600 pandas, he went crazy! He does not want to look at the camera coz he was enjoying looking at those panda but the mummy here forced him to hence this picture of protest from him.  Aiyo, […]


Homeschooling a Toddler – Beading Activity

It’s the second day of school for the big brother Ethan and Ayden is left alone at home with me. Now that Ayden is 16 months old, I can start ‘homeschooling’ him just like what I’ve done with the elder brother years ago. By ‘homeschooling’ I mean keeping Ayden occupied by giving him lots of playtime to improve his fine motor skills. Parents these days have all the luxury to splurge on their kids when […]


Xenri D’River View

OK this post is not about me selling Elken products but coincidentally I was at Wisma Elken to meet up a friend who was there to collect something. It was late evening by the time I arrived there so we decided to have dinner nearby. It was just several days into the new year 2015 and we thought we should ‘eat big’ to start our year with abundance so we made our way to Xenri (located […]


A Shopping Sunday

I dread shopping. The reason being it is difficult to find stuffs my size. If you don’t already know, I am hobbit sized. I can never get dresses that fits perfectly. They are often too long. A dress that hangs nicely above the knee to normal people will look like a maxi on me >_< Forget about buying shoes. It’s a nightmare to find shoes that fits. My shoes are often a size bigger but […]


Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Batu Feringghi Beach, Penang

I finally have the time to blog about our stay in Penang. This is what happens when we have too many pictures to share and do not know where to start. We almost did not make it for this trip. Reason being it clashed with a job of mine so I had to cancel our holiday plans a week before the actual date but later found out that my job had been postponed to another […]


Barn Thai @ Plaza 33

Late last year, a few days after Christmas, a day after my birthday and a couple of days before the new year, we went to Barn Thai Restaurant & Bar at Plaza 33 for dinner with some friends. Such a posh looking place this Barn Thai Restaurant @ Plaza 33. The moment I stepped inside, I am mesmerized by their interior and decor. Definitely a nice place to hang out. Every corner exude style and […]


Mini Egg Tarts at Carnavon Street, Penang

When I was in Penang and being driven around by our food blogger friend Ken, he stopped us at this humble place along Carnavon Street. He told us that their egg tarts here is very good so Darling immediately got down to get us some.  When a local tells you that the tarts here is good, it’s GOOD! Darling bought ten of these fresh out of the oven mini egg tarts for RM5.  RM5 for […]


DIY: How to Restore Tile Grout

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know how much I hated my floor tiles. One of my biggest regret was not replacing them before we shifted in. Now, it will be too much of a hassle to get them replaced especially with little Ayden around. Late last year during my birthday, we did not do anything fancy but spent the entire evening walking in a DIY store at IPC. I’ve forgotten the name of […]


Ultrasonic Iron Treatment

You know I am actually relieved that we are having another week of school holidays. It’s because we haven’t got time to prepare Ethan’s back-to-school stuff until the very last minute. This weekend had been a very busy one for us with buying school shoes, uniform, wrapping books and also to get his haircut. When I was in school, my school shoes are just plain white shoes. But Ethan.. this boy had Angry Bird and Ben 10 […]


Bmon Cafe @ Kota Damansara

You know I always hang around at The Strand right? It’s either there or 1U so when the foodie gang called for a night out to check out Bmon Cafe at The Strand Kota Damansara, I am ever so ready. We just got back from Penang and were disappointed that we did not get to take pictures of their famous murals at Armenian Street there but guess what? There is even cuter murals here at […]


Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year everybody! How is 2015 treating you so far? As for us, on the eve of 2014, we wanted to celebrate by going out to makan besar lah but guess what? All the restaurants worth going are fully booked. How come nobody tell us that we need to make reservation for NYE dinner? >_< Hungry like mad with stomach growling for the world to hear, we ended in 1U for dinner. So happy […]


Ang Pow Fish Lantern

I’ve got many requests for this Ang Pow Fish Lantern. I’m not too sure why when there are many more other beautiful lanterns that we can do. Maybe because it is a fish and Chinese people like fish? Makes sense? No? Nevermind. Whatever the reason, it is very simple to make this. So fish it is.  Ang Pow Fish Lantern You will need 18 ang pow wrappers for this. Ang means red. You do not necessarily […]
