Drum with Ethan: Ethan’s Performance at Sunway Giza mall

drummer-ethan

Today’s agenda is having Ethan perform at Sunway Giza for a musical concert. He performed two Grade 6 exam pieces in front of an audience. A week ago I suggested for Ethan to ditch the book and play by ear as I find it weird to see a drummer playing with a book in front of him. Today, he proves to me that he is able to do that – playing without his exam book  […]

Ethan attended his classmate’s birthday party last Saturday. It was a great start to the school holidays.  This is the second birthday party he attended this year. It was held in the evening at a condo, by the poolside so we joined him there.  The first birthday party Ethan attended this year was held during the day at a KFC outlet so we just dropped him there and came to pick him up later.  I am […]

Ethan’s Update

ethan-top-4

Hi all, do you remember Ethan? LoL. I know I have not been updating much about him these days as he has been very busy with school stuffs and activities. He goes to school early in the morning, comes home in the afternoon for lunch. Then up to his room for homework, coming down for tea and then off to the playground for an hour or two of football with the neighbourhood kids. He also […]

Taekwondo with Ethan

talent-night

Ethan participated in his school’s talent night last Sunday. The event is supposedly to start at 7pm but the children were told to be at school by 4.30pm. Parents were not allowed to be around. The gate only opened to parents/public at 6pm. We wanted to send Ethan to school later but this boy was afraid his teacher may not like it and insisted to be there by 4.30pm. The children were served fried rice […]

Art & Craft: Sponge Owl

Sponge owl craft

Ethan came home from school one day showing me the instruction for his school craft project. I took a look at it and asked him what is that supposed to be. He said that is an owl. We got into a heated argument as I refused to believe that is how an owl is supposed to look like but he insisted it is an owl.  I don’t read chinese so I don’t know if Ethan […]

Craft for Children: Footprint Popsicle

Footprint Popsicle Art for kids

It has been a while since our last arts and crafts project. Today’s project is making paper popsicle out of the boy’s footprint. Ayden can’t do much here so Ethan assisted him when it comes to tracing and cutting.  Materials needed are coloured paper, popsicle stick, glue, pencil and a pair of scissors.  Big brother Ethan helped trace Ayden’s footprint.  He also helped to cut it out.  Ayden is able to apply glue onto the […]

Ethan’s Taekwondo 1st Poom Black Belt

We went to Bukit Gambang Resort City last weekend but before we began our journey on Saturday, we dropped by Ethan’s school for his Black Belt 1st Poom certificate and changing of belt ceremony.  Ethan started learning taekwondo in March 2014. I was hesitant to let him learn initially but the father convinced me to let him with the reason it will be a good self-defense. I gave in and from that day onwards, our Saturdays […]

He chose the TRANSFORMERS Combiner Wars (Superion) as they are the Autobots combiner. The Autobots are the heroes in TRANSFORMERS toyline movies and toyline in case […]

Homeschooling the Toddler: Science Experiment – Float or Sink?

float or sink science experiment for toddlers

Just like big brother Ethan during his preschool years, I am homeschooling Ayden too. Besides doing art & craft and learning music, Ayden loves Science. Today’s activity is discovering if certain objects FLOAT or SINK. I get Ayden to pick stuffs around the house and placed it in a container for the experiment. Not known to him, I added one extra stuff in there for the surprise element later. We talked about each items and […]

Dynabook Grade Exam

I remember Ethan coming home from school asking us money for a computer exam fee last year. I don’t remember if he did it in Primary One. I don’t keep track on all these. He explained that not all students are selected to sit for this exam. I remember just giving him the money. Early this year in March, Ethan told me there will be a Grade Exam Certificate Presentation at SJK C Yuk Chai and seek our […]

Ethan’s Turn

Drum

A reader asked me the other day why is my blog mostly about Ayden and is lacking on Ethan’s update? Well, I can only tell him that Ethan spends most of his time in school and by the time he is home, he will be busy with his own stuffs where else Ayden is ALWAYS with me hence the biased update.  Anyway, today’s update is dedicated to Ethan. It is ALL ABOUT ETHAN today. I […]

KidZania Toddler

We brought the boys to KidZania today. I was surprised that we needed to pay RM39 for Ayden to enter and play too. I asked them what can a 2 1/2 year old kid do in KidZania? To my amazement, they told me there are 19 activities suitable for toddlers in KidZania. Ethan’s entrance fee is RM80 (9 year old) while both Darling and I are RM39 each for parents. So let’s check out what are the […]

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 […]

Ayden’s First Appearance in the Newspaper

The Star Metro Central Lou Sang feature

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 […]

Playing in the rain

rain rain go away

Rain drops keep falling on my head… Yesterday, I brought the boys to the playground in the evening. It was quite a gloomy evening but it was not raining yet so I decided to go ahead and bring them over. We managed to spend over an hour there when the sky suddenly opened up and pours.  Ethan, Ayden and I quickly ran home but when we reached home, Ayden did not want to go inside. […]

Guna Benang Cabut Gigi

Ethan has been complaining of his shaky tooth and a crocodile tooth is growing behind that shaky one. I told him to pull out his shaky tooth but he said no matter how hard he tried, he can’t. LoL! I told him I’ll pull it out by tying a thread around that tooth and tarik out that gigi. He got so scared that he refused to let me go near him. Every single day he’ll […]

Drum Rehearsal

Ethan went to school late today as he attended a rehearsal earlier. He’ll be the opening act for a college’s talent competition this Friday (thanks to Piano Station for arranging it) and today is his first rehearsal.  Ethan in the music room while waiting for the hall to be ready. I like how the students padded the walls with egg cartons. I’ve always wanted to do this for Ethan’s drum room but never got about […]

Prize Giving Day

Prize giving day

It is prize giving day today in Ethan’s school. He woke up really early to be there and will have to stay back for his afternoon class as usual. We were worried that he’ll be hungry or tired but thankfully the teacher informed us that parents are allowed to attend so the Daddy can bring Ethan out for lunch after he received his prize.  Darling decided to attend without Ayden and I as it was […]

LEGO day

LEGO build

While most kids have gone back to school, Ethan was still having an additional day off on Thursday as the school was being very generous with the festive holidays. Bored at home, I took both the boys out to the mall. The first thing we saw was LEGO. There is some kind of LEGO exhibition and activities going on and since the boys are so much into building blocks lately, this got their attention.  LEGO […]

Final Exam is OVER!

cheeky boy

Ethan’s final exam is OVER! That means we are officially MERDEKA for the year. Although Ethan does his revision on his own most of the time, it does take a great teamwork to get him through the exam period because if you know us well, you’ll know that we are seldom at home. And then last minute when it is closer to exam time, I’ll rush Ethan to do his revision. He’ll have to cover the […]
