Craft for Children: Sand Name Art

It is craft time again. I love crafting using natural materials. Today, the boys did sand art.  Kids need to explore to learn. They need to FEEL how grainy the sand is and by feeling is not buying them the ‘TOUCH and FEEL book’ but letting them PLAY real sand.  After they are done playing, it’s craft time. I got them to collect the sand in the big bottle for our craft activity.  Using glue, I […]

The 3 Most Tiring Parts of Being a Stay At Home Mom

Growing up, though my Mom did a great job of staying home and taking care of us, it was never in my plan to be like her. I was always that free-spirited person who prefers not to be tied down with chores (especially house chores) and even more horrifying – child care! I much prefer to be working and be someone prominent in the corporate world. Even until the day I delivered Ethan I was […]

The Spicy Sour Noodles @ Taipei Taipei

I’ve heard so much about Taipei Taipei’s signature pork chop. My friend raved about how we don’t need to go to Taiwan anymore for their famous pork chop rice as we can get it right here at Taipei Taipei. Taipei Taipei is well-known for their pork cutlet marinated in herbs and spices and deep fried till it has a crispy coat yet tender and juicy inside. My friend is from Cheras and he recommended us to […]

Test of manhood.. urm… manliness

A boy is considered a man when some parts of his body are fully developed. However, there are people who believe that a man can only be called a man if he is brave and has done something big to earn the righteous title. In my household, my boys are automatically upgraded to men if they can complete one task – killing cockroach. I am extremely scared of cockroaches. I will sream my lungs out […]

Craft for Toddlers: Leaf Stamp Art

Ayden enjoyed doing the Torn Paper Apple Art we did several days ago and kept requesting for more arts and crafts activities. I happily obliged. This time I brought them outdoor. The weather is always beautiful in the evenings and it will be such a waste not to enjoy it. I made a video of Ayden painting and stamping independently. The elder brother Ethan disappeared soon after collecting leaves to join his friends for a game […]

Premium Concentrated Imperial Bird’s Nest

I was gardening when I noticed a bird’s nest on my plant. Someone must have stragetically placed it there but let’s not focus on that  I love bird’s nest. I started consuming bird’s nest when I was pregnant with Ethan 9 years ago. Being my first pregnancy, I wanted the best for my baby. Bird’s nest is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as it is considered a superior health food in many ways. I heard that […]

Teeth Scaling Experience

How often should we go to the dentist for teeth cleaning? I was told that we should visit the dentist every 6 months and get our teeth cleaned at least once a year. I know many of my friends make it a point to do scaling or whatever every year end or beginning of the year coz it is believed clean teeth leads to a healthier body. Would you believe it if I tell you […]

Thomas & Friends in 1Utama

The Island of Sodor was in 1 Utama last weekend and I know you, you and you brought your kids there didn’t you? Don’t lie, if you did not, then how come the place is over-crowded? So many kids running around, I am so afraid I will lose sight of little Ayden so I made sure the Daddy held on to him at all time.  Suddenly families from everywhere were in 1 Utama last weekend, […]

Skewers, SS2 : Cheesy Pork Ribs and MORE!

I am on the roll for pork hunt. I realised lately that pork isn’t too bad at all. This is coming from me; a fish or chicken person. These days, I jump at every opportunity for a porky feast. I don’t know what has gotten into me but my latest pork cravings sent me to Skewers, located on the same row as SS2 Murni restaurant. Skewers 9, Jalan SS 2/75, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, […]

Singapore River Night Cruise

During our recent trip to Singapore, we took the opportunity to bring the boys for the Singapore River Night Cruise. Ethan has been on this cruise before but it was the Day Cruise. This is the boys’ first time on a night cruise. It wasn’t in our plan to go for the cruise actually but as we were taking a leisurely stroll, the boys saw the boat and requested to ride on it. Singapore River […]

Horlicks NutriQuest

Ethan missed an entire week of school earlier this month due to him being under the weather. When he returned to school, he was given a mountain full of homework. He has been really stressed out trying to catch up in school and completing all his outstanding workload. I get him to relax and let him have fun playing games because all work and no play makes Ethan a dull boy. He is very excited […]

The Story of My Fried Chicken

Let me tell you a little story. I usually cook chicken stew because it is one of the easiest meal to prepare. It also serves as a one pot dish as there are vegetables in it too. I have been alternating chicken stew and fried fish for the past months that the boys can tell today is chicken stew day and tomorrow they’ll know they will get fried fish. They love both the chicken stew […]

It is getting better

My relationship with my in-laws might not be smooth in the beginning of my marriage due to the language barrier but it improved with the arrival of Ethan. It got better once Ethan started school and learn to speak Mandarin. Nowadays, the boys love going back to my in-law’s coz there are snacks everywhere.  My father in-law runs a sundry shop so he has an ever ready supply of ice-creams 24/7! The kids are so […]
