Capture Your Signature Moment with Samsung NX500

As a lifestyle family blogger, I let my readers take a peek into my life through the pictures and words I share in my blog and other social media. With two kids in tow, it is almost impossible to go around lugging a bulky and heavy DSLR. When Samsung launched the new Samsung NX500 earlier last year that succeeds the core performance of the NX1’s DNA in a portable, compact device designed for everyday use, […]

Skippys Pizza – The real PORK pizza, pasta, burger and ribs

Think PORK pizzas and burgers and one of the first that comes to mind is definitely Skippys. I think it is safe to say most of us know of the first Skippys Pizza in Phileo Damansara 1 that originally started as a delivery and take-away store. That outlet in Phileo in due course accepts dine-in customers too and quickly became popular with the corporate lunch crowd in that area. Last December, Skippys Pizza opened their second outlet at Damansara Uptown. […]

Happenings at HOME

Let me tell you a little about the happenings in our home this week..  I usually sleep facing Ayden so whenever he needs milk at night, he can just lift my shirt up and drink. The other day, I slept with my back facing him. In his drowsiness, he lifted my shirt to find the milk gone. Horrified, he shouted, “Mummy, tetek HILANG dy!” #BreastfeedingProblems Ayden and Ethan were fighting over something petty that ended in […]

Gardening Tips: How to keep cats from pooping in my pots

I love gardening but one thing I dislike about it is that cats love pooping in my pots. It gets pretty annoying to be scooping poops every morning. No, we can’t use cat poop as fertilizer for my food plants.  What I do is to scatter orange peel in the pots regularly. Most cats dislike the smell of citrus hence this will deter them from pooping here to some extend. We eat oranges a lot […]

Grocery Shopping

On weeks when I am too busy to go grocery shopping, I’ll take the opportunity to do so when Ethan is attending his drum class. I’ll usually make it a quick one and grab whatever I needed the most. Ayden will as usual happily grabs whatever he wants and places it into my bundle together.  Why is everything GREEN?! Ayden is at the stage where he prefers to be running around instead of sitting still […]

MONGOLIAN GRILL @ Terazza Brasserie

Located on the ground floor of Dorsett Grand Subang, we were at Terazza Brasserie for their Mongolian Grill, one of their themed night buffet every Wednesday from 6.30 pm to 10.30 pm. Originally from Taiwan, Mongolian Grill has since become popular across the globe inspired by stories of Mongolian warriors and their culinary prowess. Using their large shield as makeshift woks, they would stir-fry their meats and vegetable over blazing fires whilst using herbs and spices to […]

Our first laser tag experience

We attended HP Kids Day Out at Galactic Laser Mid Valley Megamall last Saturday. Ethan was extremely excited as it was our very first laser tag experience. He went for his taekwondo class early in the morning in order to be able to make it here by noon.  Galactic Laser, Mid Valley Ethan won a headphone during the quiz session.  The boys ate a little before going into the battlefield.  Okay I lied, they ate a lot […]

Ayam oh Ayam

We were back in my in-law’s place during the recent Chinese New Year break. There wasn’t much to do over there but the boys got the opportunity to be Kampung boys. One of the activity Ayden loves the most is playing with the chicks (as in ANAK AYAMs). Disclaimer: No AYAMS were hurt in the making of this blog post. My sister-in-law was attacked by the mother hen though while she was taking this chick away from […]

Nyonya Taste Cuisine, Kota Laksamana Melaka

Being a Peranakan, we don’t usually dine out at Peranakan restaurants. Nyonyas usually take pride of their own cooking and prefer to invite guests to their home for a meal. Majority of them are like that except for me as I am one of those rare Nyonyas who only knows how to eat but not cook. I attribute this to my mom who spoilt us constantly with her delicious home cooked food that I never find the […]

Our 9th Day of Chinese New Year

On the ninth day of the Chinese New Year it would be the celebration known to the Hokkiens as “Phai Thien Kong” which literally means “praying the Heaven God”. Prayers usually starts from 11pm on the 8th day or midnight onwards on the 9th day. Eversince I got married to Darling, I had been following him back to his hometown for this prayers except this year.   There is no school holiday for this special celebration this year and […]

Chinese New Year Lunch @ Hatten Hotel Melaka

Gong Xi Fa Cai. It is the 9th day of Chinese New Year today. Firecrackers are showering the skies as I am typing this entry. My boys have no problem sleeping through it all though :) On the 5th day of Chinese New Year, my friend Sidney invited me to join him and his mom for a Lou Sang lunch at the hotel he was staying. He was staying right smack in the heart of […]

Chinese New Year OOTD

I am back! Am finally home with fast internet connection! *Dusting off cobwebs* I’ve not updated my blog for a week now because the internet connection in both my in-law’s and my parent’s place are so lagging it will take me hours just to post a proper blog post so I decided to take a break completely. I was also too occupied catching up on life offline that it does not even matter :D There are […]

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Thank goodness Chinese New Year is only celebrated once a year. It is so tiring to prepare for CNY (this coming from me who doesn’t even cook for the reunion dinner). We tried to shop for clothes a month in advance but it was so difficult with the two boys tagging along. They always got distracted by their surroundings especially the Lion Dance performances. This year we managed to catch the Lion Dance for more […]

Oriental Oasis @ Arabian Bay Resort, BGRC

I was not aware that there is a Halal Chinese restaurant in Bukit Gambang Resort City. We stayed in Arabian Resort and had breakfast at their Coffee House yet I did not notice that there is this Oriental Oasis just next to it until on the second day and we really wanted to dine here. Oriental Oasis, Arabian Resort. We had just completed our ATV Safari Ride in the hot afternoon sun so it was very […]

Can You Make An Egg Stand?

If you never got your eggs to stand before, today is a good day to try. Egg balancing has been connected with Lichun, the solar term beginning of Chinese spring (春) though I heard that it is possible to make egg stand any other day of the year. It started with successfully making an egg stand. And then there are 6. No glue were used in the making of these standing eggs but what is even more amazing is…  We managed […]

Ayden’s First Appearance in the Newspaper

Ayden finally got his small break and appeared in the newspaper together with the Daddy and big brother Ethan – The Star Metro Central on the 2 February 2016 to be exact. The article doesn’t have anything to do with him though :P We were having a Chinese New Year Lou Sang dinner preview at Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur and were tossing to prosperity when the photographer caught this shot. I was no […]

Vanity Kitchen Layer Cake

I received a message from Micheele from Vanity Kitchen recently saying her bakery specialises in making Indonesian Layer Cakes (Kek Lapis Legit) and other Indonesian treats in Kuala Lumpur and asked if I would like to sample some of her cakes. I checked out their FB Page and was more keen on their pineapple tarts actually as we always purchase pineapple tarts in bulk this time of the year as gifts for Darling’s business acquaintances. I […]
