Celebrating early Christmas with Friends

Christmas to me is spending time with loved ones so when we got invited by our dear friend Kimmy to join him and family at an event nearby our place, we immediately agree.  A fairytale Christmas it is.  The boys with Santa. Have they been good or bad this year?  Santa giving them sweet lollies again. I guess the boys must have been really good this year to receive so many goodies from Santa  Ayden […]

Giant Christmas Snow Globe @ Main Place

Ethan attended a holiday programme somewhere nearby the Main Place, USJ today. Ayden and I hung around the mall while waiting for him. It was our first time here.  The Christmas decor at the entrance of the Main Place.  We walked inside and came across a giant snow globe. I asked the guy in charge of it and was told that entrance is complementary.  I read that it can take in maximum 3 persons at […]

How Cosmotots Helps Ethan Build a Stronger Foundation in English

It’s the school holidays and since I have a little more time to spare, I would like to share an insight of Ethan’s journey in improving his grasp on English. I don’t speak, write nor read Chinese so the only language I use at home with the kids is English with a mixture of Bahasa (as I am after all a Peranakan Nyonya). I thought he would not fare too well in the Chinese language […]

A party while we were away…

We left the house for 7 days and returned to a warm welcome of a cockroach party.  You see, I laid around 4 of these cockroach traps around the kitchen and the washroom downstairs before leaving the house for our vacation. I did not know what to expect when we returned but when I checked.. OMG! There was a lizard stuck in the trap and apparently the cockroaches were nibbling on it as the lizard’s […]

Christmas Decorations: 1 Utama

We were at 1 Utama last weekend to check out their Christmas decor.  I don’t get it at first. All I see are giant poinsettia flowers.  And then this huge albino spider appeared in front of me, scaring the heck out of me *almost dropped my camera*  I was thinking, “What does spiders got to do with Christmas?!” I bet they are going to keep those spiders after Christmas and spray paint them black come […]

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

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  […]

Craft with Ayden: Cotton Bud Tree Art

It has been raining the past evenings, Ayden has caught a cold. Yesterday, it looks like it was going to rain again so I decided to bring the kids to the playground much earlier. At least if it rains, they would have gotten some sunshine and fresh air before rushing home.  Since Ayden is nursing a cold and won’t be able to play with the other kids, I let him do some art work in the […]

Batu Ferringhi is one of Penang’s most popular destinations. Its long stretch of soft, white sandy beach is filled with a host of accommodation and dining options. When spoilt for choices, how do you decide? Travelling with kids, the most important factor for us is the convenience and comfort of the boys.

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 […]

Gardening with Ayden: Worm Farming

A worm farm turns organic waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser for your plants and soils but all I have are small bins for breeding worms, not those big professional ones for worm farming. I breed earthworms so I can transfer them into my potted plants as they help increase nutrient in the soil and create better drainage. Ayden has been watching me breed earthworms for some time. Today, he requested to have his very own worm […]

Taekwondo with Ethan

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 […]
