The Boys’ First Ride on a Real Excavator

There was a burst pipe in front of our house. The contractor who was working on it brought an excavator and a huge dump truck to our place.  Both my boys watched them in awe. They kept talking about the excavator; pointing to each part of it. The contractor heard them and asked if they would like to go on a ride on that excavator. Imagine the boys’ surprise and delight!

Healing Touch Foot Spa promo with FREE Jungle Gym Kid’s Entry Ticket

It’s the school holidays. Guess who needs a break more than the boys? Yes, ME (not forgetting the Daddy too). Having two active boys at home 24/7 is no joke. I need my ME time before I go crazy but being a stay-at-home-mom with no baby sitter, it is almost impossible to get any pampering done as there won’t be anyone to care for the boys. But all hope is not lost as I found […]

Ayden’s Milestone: Cycling on two wheels

Ayden has been cycling Ethan’s hand-me-down bicycle with the aid of balancing wheels since October last year. I blogged about it here. He loves cycling very much and will cycle around the court while we play badminton or he’ll follow me on the cement path when I jog. He cycles up and down stones resulting in his balancing wheels getting out of shape and not able to support his bicycle properly.  Yesterday, I noticed him […]

Cook with Ayden: Stir-Fried Long Beans with Egg

I do grocery shopping daily. As I was thinking of what to cook today, I saw some nice long beans and bitter gourd. I love bitter gourd but the boys don’t so I ended up buying long beans. I plan to fry it with eggs. It did not cross my mind that Ayden can actually cook this too as it requires frying. When we were paying, Ayden asked me what was I planning to cook […]

Cook with Ayden: Nyonya Sek Bak

If you noticed, Ayden usually cooks chicken dishes because that is the easiest meat I can buy. I don’t go to morning market hence I do all my grocery shopping in shopping malls. Only recently I introduced prawns to Ayden and he happily cooked Nyonya Assam Prawn with it which we all love very much. Now that Ayden is getting more and more familiar in the kitchen, I start to introduce more varieties of meat […]

The boys’ first MRT ride

When we were in Bangkok earlier this month, we relied mostly on their BTS Skytrain to go around the city.  The boys loved riding on that very much that once we are back home in Malaysia, they requested to go for a ride on our very own MRT. Little Ayden find it odd that we don’t take the train here at home but do so when we are abroad. I had to explain to him […]
