Growing Sweet Potato Leaves in Milk Cartons

Do you remember my homegrown organic spinach in milk cartons? If you don’t, you can read about it in this post -> http://www.submerryn.com/2015/08/homegrown-organic-spinach.html Since I find it so easy to grow spinach in milk cartons, I thought why not try to grow sweet potato leaves in it too since I don’t have any soil on land for them? Actually the idea only came upon me when I saw that the sweet potato I bought has sprouted. […]

Back to School

After a week long of school holidays and an additional day off yesterday thanx to the haze, it is finally back to school for Ethan. Honestly speaking, I was dreading the Monday to Friday that I was supposed to spend with both Ethan and Ayden at home.  The boys, when spending time together for far too long can be quite handful but thankfully this time, both were very well behaved.  They played together most of […]

The Importance of Having Patience in Parenting

It’s 2am and I can’t sleep. I watched something awful on Youtube and it is haunting me still. It’s a cctv recording of a father and his teenage son arguing. The father took out his gun, placed it in front of his son, dared him to shoot the dad but the son shot himself instead. Without even hesitating, the son took the gun and pulled the trigger. In just a fraction of a second the […]

Malacca’s Famous Chicken Rice Balls

I was back at my parent’s place in Malacca last weekend. My Dad will always make sure there is breakfast ready on the table each time his kids and grandchildren are home. If he buys something spicy such as nasi lemak or roti canai, he’ll make sure to buy a packet of noodles for Ethan and Ayden.  He knows of Ayden’s latest fascination with fishballs so he went out of his way to get Malacca’s […]

Melaka Triangle House – Masbro Village Boutique Homestay

There is this unique triangular houses in Malacca that is popping everywhere on my FB feed. I did some checking and found that it is only 9 minutes away from my parent’s house. Last weekend we were back in Malacca and decided to check this place out.  Surprisingly, when I posted this pic in my Facebook, not many people are aware of their existence. How can you not be aware of such a beautiful place?  […]

The meaning of lantern to kids these days

When is Mid-Autumn Festival? I heard it is around the corner so we brought the kids lantern shopping today. They don’t sell traditional paper lantern anymore do they?  The first lantern that Ayden chose is the type that has sound and wheels and can move on land but I told the Daddy to get them something more ‘traditional’ as in a lantern that will only light up without those annoying sound and movement.  The Daddy […]

D’King Vegetarian Snow Skin Musang King Durian Mooncake

Mid-Autumn Festival is this Sunday. Just as we’ve got our lanterns ready, a surprise delivery arrived at our doorstep last Saturday. To our delight, we received this package from D’King, a premium durian mooncake brand. Took a peek inside and saw two boxes of Vegetarian Snow Skin Musang King durian mooncakes. Individually wrapped, there are FOUR packs in each styrofoam box to retain its coldness. Beautifully handmade, with no preservatives and artificial flavouring added hence we […]

Towing a Roller Container

We were driving along aimlessly after dinner several nights ago when we spotted a tow truck getting ready to tow a roller container. Ethan and Ayden are ardent fans of vehicles and they requested for the Daddy to stop so they can see how it is done. It is actually my first time witnessing this too and I must admit I got as excited as the kids :D A roller container is a container mainly […]

Potluck Lunch

It all started from one of my FB postings. My foodie friend commented something and one comment led to another and we ended up planning for a potluck. I volunteered to bring a POT since I don’t cook and suggested for Choi Yen to bring the LUCK. We pulled Xiang into the picture as we know he has a nice house to host us :D Just an impromptu idea that became a reality but we are […]

One of those bad days…

We brought Ayden to his weekly gym class at BeeBop Circus as usual last Saturday evening. The difference was we woke him up early and was out of the house since morning (as I had some errands to run) and headed directly to the gym at 5pm without him getting a proper nap. I thought he’ll be okay as he has been looking forward to attend this once a week class all week especially with […]

Top Reason to Eat at Rail Canteen

In line with their “farm to table” […]

Shopping with the boys

These days, it is a challenge shopping with the boys. I don’t remember Ethan being this rascal when he was two but put him and little bro Ayden together, all hell breaks loose! A 20 minute grocery shopping can be really ‘entertaining’ for them but tiring for me.  They both will quickly grab a basket each.  And push it around the alley. Ayden is cheekier. Sometimes he’ll stop at something he fancies and just grab […]

Tony Roma’s Ribs, Seafood & Steak

We spent the entire day at eCurve and got really tired. We saw an empty bench in front of Tony Roma’s and quickly took a sit to rest our exhausted feet. Thank goodness for the bench, our zonked feet got a couple of minutes of rest. Not only was our feet were dead beat, we were famished too. That was when we spotted the latest promo from Tony Roma’s. Without delaying further, we made our […]

Sleeping Feet

I was lying on the bed playing with my phone while the boys were sleeping (I know it is a bad habit) when I turned to my left and saw something cute. Peekaboo! It has been a while since I last took a good look at this cute little foot.  There, the bigger picture. Not very cute anymore :P I’ll always wear socks for him after he falls asleep as he will usually pull them […]

5 Reasons to visit Koosh Koffeez @ Publika Shopping Gallery

There is this new coffee place in Publika Shopping Gallery opened barely a month ago (at the time of writing) that you must visit at least once and I bet you’ll get hooked to it soon after as it has a really lovely interior, great coffee and surprisingly very good food. We kept coming back until we have eaten almost everything on their menu. Today’s post is a compilation of everything that we have eaten […]

Finally in a car seat again

I’ve been a bad mother. When Ayden was born, I made sure to put him in his car seat whenever we are travelling in the car. We used big bro Ethan’s car seat as it was still in good condition then. After some time (several months), the car seat cover (the sponge) started to tear off. We couldn’t find a replacement for the cover and thought of getting a new seat but Ayden started to […]
