Chocolate Chips Walnut Cookies Ingredients: 227g butter 180g white sugar 190g brown sugar 375g all-purpose flour […]

3 Reasons to Stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the heart of Malacca city. You have not seen Malacca unless you’ve spend your time exploring the many places of interests here. It is a favourite amongst tourists and for that very same reason, this area is always packed and abuzz with activities. Driving here can be quite tricky as it is not easy to find an empty parking spot hence many opt to stay nearby so they can just […]

A Surprise Birthday Cake for Daddy’s Birthday Brunch

We are currently in Melaka to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. His birthday was on the 11th but it falls on a weekday with the kids still in school so we had to celebrate a bit later. I choose to bring him to Hotel Equatorial Melaka for their Jazzy Sunday Brunch as I really loved it when we dined here last month. The price is pretty reasonable too especially since both my parents are senior citizens. […]

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 […]

Places of Interest Within Walking Distance in Melaka
