Art time with Ayden: Sponge Painting

Just the other day I shared the benefits of stamping for toddlers. In case you missed it, you may read all about it here. Today, we explore further on stamping with a new paint tool – sponge. Ayden loves Koi fish so I thought let’s make today’s art activity more interesting by letting him paint his very own koi fish. I did this same art activity with big brother Ethan back in 2012 when he […]

The Number76 experience

It has been a year since I started frequenting Number76 at Starhill Gallery for all my hair needs. They introduced me to hair relaxing, a softer and more natural look as opposed to super straight rebonded hair. I became a fan of hair relaxing from then onwards that I don’t think I’ll ever do rebonding again.  Number76, Starhill Gallery The Starhill Gallery branch has extended their salon and is now bigger and more spacious.  They also […]

Art time with Ayden : Why Stamping is important for young children

Ayden is 3 years old. It is important to work on his soft motor skills. At this age, I pay more attention to his finger muscles and hand strengthening as it is crucial in helping him to hold the pencil when he starts going to school. Stamping is one of the best activity to work those finger muscles as he will be utilising all four fingers and his thumb to hold the stamp. It helps in […]

Guess where were we …

We were here. The one place I dread to go on a weekend or during the school holidays. I’ll only try to go on a weekday if possible. If not, then I choose not to go at all coz the queue at the counter can be horrible on a weekend. It is especially terrible during the school holidays. Only several weeks left before the year end school holidays and with Christmas approaching, I am sure […]

How to Grow and Harvest Red (Adzuki) Beans in 60 Days

My family, especially Ayden love red bean with gula melaka dessert soup. I sometimes boiled it together with black glutinous rice. On other occasions, I’ll add glutinous rice balls into the red bean soup.  Red Bean Dessert I cook this dessert at least once every week and have been buying organic red beans from the supermarket. One day, I decided to try growing them ourselves.  Growing red beans is extremely simple. All we had to do was […]

Toy Review – Disney PLANES

Back when Ayden was 3 months old, big brother Ethan received a whole lot of toys sponsorship from Mattel. We shared some of the toys with our readers via giveaways. We also gave out some to our friends. Ayden was too young to be playing with any of those toys back then. I kept some so he can play with them when he is older. Fast forward 3 years later, I have totally forgotten about […]

PLAY-DOH Town Firehouse Playset Review and Giveaway

Being a stay-at-home-mom and to home-school both my boys during their preschool years is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I have to admit it is more challenging to home-school Ayden compared to elder brother Ethan as Ayden is more playful. Lessons planned for Ayden are usually in shorter durations. What matters most is the learning experience he gained from all these quick sessions. At 3 years old, Ayden’s lessons are majority play-based. We […]

Which Flight to Choose from KL to Bali?

Which flight to take from KL to Bali? That is really a tough choice. Initially we wanted to try Air Asia but knowing that it will take 3 hours, I know we have to get food for the kids and us too. So after adding the cost for luggage, FOOD etc, etc… AA is no longer affordable.  Next choice – Malindo. With the rates we got from AA, we can get Malindo’s Business Class promo seats […]

Hand-me-downs – Ethan’s bicycle is now Ayden’s

When Princess Charlotte wore big brother Prince George’s hand-me-down sweater recently, it broke the internet with headlines such as, “It’s so CUTE! Princess Charlotte wears big brother’s hand-me-down clothes” and many more. But then again, she IS really cute lah though I personally think George is cuter … Anyway, to us commoners, it is a norm for the younger sibling to get hand-me-downs. Ayden has been wearing Ethan’s hand-me-down clothes for a while now and not […]
