Feeling Appreciated

Last December, we received a lovely Christmas Fruit Cake from Dorsett Grand Subang.  It is always nice to receive anything in a cake box as I super love cakes and cookies.  This Ayden just can’t wait till we get home and insisted to open it there and then but I managed to bring him a little further from the crowd before letting him open the cake box :D We spent the entire December eating this […]

S.E.A Aquarium, Sentosa Singapore

We’ve been to Singapore numerous times but have never been to their S.E.A Aquarium until last week. Our priority is always Universal Studio Singapore first and often by the time we are done with USS, we won’t have time for the aquarium anymore. We almost missed the aquarium again last weekend as we went to USS again as usual but this time we made sure to leave a couple of hours earlier so we can […]

Chinese New Year Decorations @ Changi Airport, Singapore

We went to the airport early the other day so we had a lot of time to kill before boarding. We were at T2 @ Changi Airport and there are many cute monkeys to welcome the Lunar New Year.  These monkeys are so cute and cheerful. Ayden kept asking me how come these monkeys eat PAU and not bananas. Darling told him those are not pau but peach. Is it? I thought those are birthday […]

Wireless Printing with HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3635 All-in-One Printer

The recent year end school holidays was very good for us. We managed to visit quite a number of places for short vacations. Since I have kids, I always opt to travel nearby. I prefer to take short and near vacations rather than travelling far for a stretch of time as the kids get tired easily. Ayden is already 2 years old this time when we travelled and he remembers much more things compared to […]

Ayden’s First Time Flying

Last Saturday was Ayden’s first time flying. We flew to Singapore. We took Firefly from Subang to Singapore and return with Malaysia Airlines to KLIA. I prefer flying from Subang airport. It’s nearer to our house. We do not need to waste too much time travelling on the road. More over, the cab fee is definitely cheaper but we had no choice, we had to take MH home as there are no more flights from […]

Homegrown Spring Onion in Milk Cartons

Growing spring onion is relatively easy. You don’t need rocket science to do it.  Chances are some of the onions in your kitchen would have sprouted anyway so all you need to do is place them on the soil to grow further.  As usual, I used milk cartons to grow my greens. This two big onions represents Mummy and Daddy (according to the cheeky Ayden). The boys planted little onions for their own collection.  We placed the […]

How to Insert Nuffnang Mobile Ads into My Blog

A couple of days ago, I received an email from Nuffnang regarding their mobile ads. I’m not too sure if this is new or what but I do know that I have not inserted any NN mobile ads in my blog prior to this.  Looking at how much we are spending time on our mobile instead of the PC, I decided to add the mobile ads into my blog. I’m a noob when it comes to […]

Going To School at Night

There was one morning when Ayden woke me up before 5am! Don’t know why, he refused to go back to bed. I left him there with the Daddy while I went down to prepare Ethan’s snack box. I went back into the room 20 minutes later to see him wide awake so I thought why not bring him along to send the kor-kor to school.  Ayden got so excited when we told him that he’ll be […]

I’m a walking pineapple. Huat Ah!

Went CNY shopping last weekend. To be more precise, CNY clothes shopping. No luck though as nothing fits me. Sigh.. This is the problem if you have a big head with a little body. I end up looking like a tadpole if I wear fitting clothes or a shuttlecock if I wear loose ones. Haih!  I saw this and actually tried it on: LoL! I’m a walking pineapple! So Chinese with so much ONG! I […]

Quick and Easy Snack Ideas for School Children

It is the third week of school. I still havent been able to establish a routine of waking up early in the morning to prepare food for Ethan. The reason being I usually stay up till 2am for work and if I wake up at 5am, I’ll remain awake the entire day to care for the two boys. On days that I really can’t get my eyes to open, Ethan will purchase food from the canteen […]

3 Drinks to Keep Us Cool on Super HOT days!

The weather is scorching hot these days and it is said to go on till March. The boys are even seen seeking shelter from the fierce sun during our daily evening playground routine.  I was waiting for Ayden to crawl out of the tunnel only to see him hide in there. I guess he discovered how cooling it is in there as opposed to the scorching hot sun.  And then there are TWO! Haiyo! That left […]

Animal Feeding for the Animal Conservation Fund

Most children are fascinated by animals and often have an animal that is a particular favorite of theirs. Animals are used widely in our daily education especially for younger children. A better way to introduce and educate animals to them is to let them see and experience these animals upclose which we did last month at Bukit Gambang Safari Park. The entire trip is all about animals, animals and more animals. One activity that the boys love besides riding […]
