His Friend’s Birthday

pokemon-birthday-theme-cake

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 […]

Year End School Holiday is HERE!

eastin-kl-christmas

The year end school holiday is finally here. In a blink of an eye, the 2016 academic year is over. Big bro Ethan is ever so glad and I know the Dad is too. He can sleep in longer as there will be no more morning rush to school but the mother has mixed feelings. What do I do with two active boys at home until next year?   One thing for sure, we’ll be doing […]

The Story of the Empty Milk Carton

Milk carton sailboat craft_2

Ethan took out a carton of milk from the refrigerator. That is the only carton of milk left that day. He poured out some milk and kept the carton back into the refrigerator. Seeing big brother having milk to drink, Ayden asked for it too so I went to get some only to find that the carton of milk is already EMPTY. Rage mode ON but I decided to play it cool. I gave Ayden […]

The Number76 experience

the-number76-hair-service-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 […]

Guess where were we …

ikea-mutiara-damansara

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 […]

(In)fertility Treatments: My Story, My Journey

I’m writing this today, 3 years after Ayden was born because I have seen many friends who are in the same situation as I am yet did not seek treatment just because they are not aware about it. Well, maybe they are aware about it but chose to wait and see. I am also writing this because I came across someone sharing an article on abortion access and why it should be allowed globally. For […]

Keeping Cool

USB Fan 3

This mini USB fan was in a gift bag to one of the event we attended recently.  I am very jakun because I’ve never seen such a thing. I have a mini USB stand fan but this is the first time I’m seeing a fan such as this.  Instructions at the back. I thought I can use it on my iPhone but kenot. I can use it on the kids’ Samsung Tab though.  Can also […]

Evening routine

Tiger Balm Mosquito Repellent Patch_12

We look forward to playground time every day. It is our favourite time of the day where the big brother plays with his friends from the neighbourhood while little Ayden explores and spends more time with me. Once the daddy is back from work, he’ll join us, taking over Ayden and I’ll get to go for my 2.5km jog. After I get my heart pumping and work out some sweat, I’ll play with Ayden again and the […]

A little update

Kidzania 2

It was a busy yet fruitful Saturday for us. I woke the boys up really early so we can be at Aquaria KLCC by 9am as I have an event to attend. The event was held in Aquaria KLCC so we got complimentary entrance for that day. It is Ayden’s first visit to Aquaria KLCC. The Daddy accompanied the boys during the guided tour of Aquaria while I stayed put in the event hall. I […]

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 […]

His shoe vs Mine

stride rite toddler shoes 2

It is a state holiday today so let’s go shopping. We woke up early and quickly headed out to our favourite shopping mall because we are afraid if we go later, there won’t be any parking spot available as everyone else is taking this opportunity to do some shopping too. Town folks, tsk tsk! Ayden has been wearing big brother Ethan’s hand-me-down Crocs all these while so we thought it is time to buy him […]

Smuggling Popcorns

popcorn

Mothers are supposed to show good example to their kids as kids usually mimic their parents’ every move. Pity my boys as I am not such a good role model lah. During the recent school holidays, we made popcorn at home. If you follow my blog, you would have read my post about our kitchen project – making popcorn. If you haven’t, then let me share with you the video on how to make popcorn. […]

Sending hope to a little boy

Ethan came home from school last week telling us that he donated RM2 of his school pocket money for a student who is suffering from Leukemia and is currently in the hospital. That student is also in Primary 3 but from a different class. Ethan does not know him personally. I am surprised and also glad to know that Ethan willingly donated his pocket money for a good cause. We always give him RM5 pocket […]

Test of manhood.. urm… manliness

test of manhood cockroach

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 […]

Teeth Scaling Experience

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, […]

The Story of My Fried Chicken

Ayam Goreng

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

chinese calligraphy for primary children

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 […]

Monkeys

monkeys

I always sing with Ayden the nursery rhyme that goes like this, “Mummy called the doctor and the doctor said, ‘No more monkeys jumping on the bed’ “ The other day when Ayden was admitted in the hospital, I introduced the doctors and nurses to him. He laughed and said we are the monkeys the doctor has always been telling not to jump on the bed. I laughed with him and never thought much about […]

School Reopens

Kung Fu Panda 3

School reopens. I am sure the children will be sharing with each other what they did during the school holidays. Ethan has done nothing much except being in the hospital. The Daddy did ask the boys what they want to do the first thing when we are all discharged and they both answered, “to watch Kung Fu Panda 3”. We have not been to the movies eversince Ethan started school in the morning session. So […]

Fever and Fits

I am sorry for not answering or returning your calls, replying private messages, comments and more. I know everyone is concerned and wants to know what happened to us, particularly Ayden but I do not have time to explain to each and every one. It was after midnight, 5 days after that horrifying ordeal that we are finally home again. So let me tell you what exactly happened. If you read my previous post, you’ll […]

Blood Test

Dengue blood test 5

We brought Ethan to the clinic in the evening as it is already the 4th day of fever and the paed just gave Nurofen to control his fever. Unfortunately his fever did not subside and by midnight it was as high as 40.4C!  We panicked and quickly brought him to the ER at that is situated about 10 minutes drive away from our house to test for dengue.  Little Ayden tried to cheer the obviously […]

Popping HOT!

Sooooooo… I woke up with many pictures of the partial eclipse on my whatsapp. I can’t believe we slept through it all. It has been a rough night. Ethan is on the 4th day of high fever. This morning it peaked at 40C! Haih…  The weather is still extremely hot. I believe if I place a cob of corn under the scorching hot sun it will be a popping party >_< Talking about popcorn, it […]

It’s SO HOT!

Gosh why is it so hot these days? I don’t even feel like going to the playground as it is still scorching hot eventhough it is close to 7pm! The big brother Ethan skipped school yesterday and today due to high fever. The 3 of us are prisoners in our own home. We take many showers but sweat buckets as soon as we get out of the bathtub. Urgh!  This is what we do everyday – […]

Working Holiday

Novotel melaka

I love going on a short getaway as that means getting to spend some quality time with the boys but when the hotel we live in comes with complimentary high speed internet access on a Mac, it is poison for me. I’ll end up stealing some time away to do a bit of work. It is even more toxic as I know the boys are having fun in the kids’ corner under the supervision of their […]
