Our Glowing Dinner at Bubbles & Bites

Hello! We are still away on a lovely getaway at Resorts World Genting. There are so many things to see and do that I don’t have the time to update my blog at all. But if you’ve been following my Insta and FB (both Page and Personal) you’ll know that I’ve shared many pictures as well as videos just to show you what we are up too. Last night our dinner was one of a […]

Guava Soup

At 21 months old, Ayden is finally bored of porridge and mushy food. He likes to eat rice with soup these days. I’m busy looking for new soup recipes to add more varieties in his diet. I was first introduced to guava soup when I was invited to a friend’s house for dinner over CNY. It was my first time drinking guava soup and I must say that it is intriguingly delicious. It is unique, refreshing […]

Animal Kiddie Ride

Last weekend was Ayden’s first time riding on those plush animal kiddie ride. At first we let him ride together with Ethan… But he doesn’t enjoy it.  He doesn’t even like it and requested to be taken away from there. He wanted his own ride so we got him the smaller animal ride. And he loves it! Totally enjoying the experience.  And started going around chasing big bro Ethan.  I foresee us burning RM8 every […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Moist Chocolate Cake

A friend said I am baking with a vengeance. Heh. It’s just that I am so excited to experiment with so many recipes out there to see which works and which doesn’t. This is my second attempt baking Moist Chocolate Cake. My first attempt failed miserably so I did not blog about it. It came out looking like a piece of belacan. It was so dense there wasn’t any space to breath in there. I […]

Being Socially Active

One of the biggest sacrifice a stay at home mom does is giving up her social life. When I first gave up my job to be a stay at home mother many years ago, the thing that hit me the hardest was the lack of adult human communication and interaction. The loneliness within can really drive me up the wall. I went through a dark period where I kind of hated everything around me as […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Marble Butter Cake

We are getting very comfortable baking using our rice cooker these days with the many successful cakes that we’ve baked. Today, I’m going to let my little helper do most of the work because it is that easy :) If little Ayden can do it, so can YOU! Watch this video: We’ll be baking this beautiful and equally delicious Marble Butter Cake. It is actually similar to the butter cake we baked previously but nicer looking […]

Ramadhan dinner preview: Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel

The holy month of Ramadan is commonly perceived to be a time of giving and blessing. It is also said to be the time for reflection and contemplation, for charity and compassion, and for friends and families to turn their thoughts to those less fortunate. For Darling who is in the marketing line, it is time to scout for the best Ramadan dinner spread to reward his business partners. We’ll start with Eastin Hotel’s buka […]

Not So Picky Eater

One thing about Ethan is it’s very easy to feed him. Just get him chicken rice or noodles and he’s good. He loves spaghetti bolognese and will order that most of the time when we dined out. It’s either that or noodle soup lah. It’s easy to feed him BUT he only eats the same old thing every time. My spaghetti boy.. And now there are TWO! Ayden is following his big bro’s footsteps by […]

Rice Cooker Cakes : Butter Cake

I baked butter cake using my rice cooker last week. This is by far the most successful cake baked using my rice cooker. The texture of the cake is exactly like those oven baked cakes except the top layer is pale and not brown. The amount of ingredients used makes it just perfect when it comes to the thickness of the cake. This is also the first cake (baked using my rice cooker) that requires […]

Fruit Salad for Pendidikan Moral

Last week Ethan came home with a simple instruction – to select a fruit to bring to school for a project in Pendidikan Moral this week. We told him to bring apples as we always have apples at home. I’m referring to the edible ones this time :P He informed his teacher he will be bringing apples and the teacher gave him another set of instructions – to peel and cut it into cubes and […]

Poolside BBQ Party

I attended a Poolside BBQ party today. Quite an interesting one because there are so much to do to keep ourselves occupied. The first thing that caught Ethan’s eyes is the Kids’ Jewelry Making Station by Kelvin Gems. He quickly ran to me saying he wanted to make me something. This boy, just earlier we had a heated argument and now he is dying to make me a jewelry. *Heart melt* He told me to […]

Easy DIY Snickers Ice Popsicle

I have a Snickers bar sitting in my fridge for months. I did not allow the kids to eat it actually coz it’s too sweet. We had two. We got it during our stay in Aloft KL back in March. It came complimentary with the room. The kids ate one yet they can’t finish it so I did not let them eat this one. I was wondering what to do with it when I suddenly […]

DIY Wrapping Paper

Ethan will be celebrating Teacher’s Day in school today. He had no time to get gifts for his teachers so I helped him buy but I forgotten to get wrapping papers. I only realized we are out of wrapping paper after dinner and it is already too late to go out already. How? We made our own wrapping paper. First, I cut a heart shape from a piece of paper.  Then I placed another piece […]

A little bit of sunshine and fresh air

It’s not easy being a stay at home mother. You’ll need strong mental health to survive. Staring at the 4 walls with never ending chores everyday can drive anyone crazy. I had it tough when I first gave up my job to be a SAHM but I am all good now. I know what to expect and my mind is ready for it. BUT I still have my down and crazy days especially on those […]

Mother’s Day Celebration at Eastin Hotel

Weeks before Mother’s Day, Darling looked high and low for restaurants or hotels that offer unique Mother’s Day promotions. Most of the eateries offer the usual Mothers Eat For Free kind of promo but we came across Eastin Hotel’s Young Chef Competition in conjunction with Mother’s Day. Now knowing me, you’ll know that I always prioritize the kids before me so Darling knew this will be the PERFECT way to celebrate Mother’s Day and went […]

How To Draw A Human Face out of your Foot Print

I was spending time drawing and colouring with Ayden. As usual, I’ll help him trace his hands and feet and draw faces out of them. We have been doing this since he was a baby and he loves it. Today, I am going to be very generous and share with you how to draw a human face out of your foot print. It is such an intricate art so you should pay close attention to […]

Rice Cooker Cakes: Baked Sweet Corn Cake

My first rice cooker cake is steamed banana chocolate cake. Then I experimented with a different recipe making moist chocolate cake that turned out to be a total flop as it was too dense. Today, using the steamed banana chocolate cake recipe, I tried making sweet corn cake. Was super nervous to open the rice cooker when it was done as I was afraid it will be another failure but surprise, surprise, this is highly successful! […]

Last year I was here too and we got to eat Durian Kampung but this year we were extremely lucky to get Musang King! Va […]

Senjyu @ Bangsar Village II

Over the long weekend we spent most of our time eating. I don’t know. I think it’s a Malaysian thing. We happy, we eat. We bored, we eat. We stress, we eat. We angry, we eat :P As for us, we were not angry nor stressed out but purely wanted to kill time. Since we had so much time in our hands, we drove all the way to Bangsar for some Japanese cuisine.  We went […]

When Kids Blog

With a blink of an eye, the long weekend is over. Can’t believe how tiring it is to spend time with two active boys these days. It is either age is catching up with me or the boys are getting tougher. Out of the four off days, we get to spend one day at home peacefully with no agenda planned as the daddy needed to attend to some matters with our new tenant. As I […]

Horlicks School Journey Initiative

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Even the longest and most difficult ventures have a starting point. I home-schooled Ethan when he was younger. I don’t believe in sending him to preschool but as he grows up, I know I will have to eventually expose him to the real world to learn not only on academics but survival skills as well. We decided to enrol him into a public school. […]

Jipangi Ice-Cream Sunway Pyramid

I’ve been seeing pictures of people eating this J-shaped ice cream for months and told myself to NEVER ever go near it as it looks horrendous. But true to the saying, “Never say NEVER” I finally succumbed to it when Ethan requested for it. My first reaction was an immediate ‘NO’ but Ethan kept begging us for it each time we walked passed this place. After about two months or so, we finally bought one […]
