(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 […]

Bali with Kids: Holiday Inn Resort Bali Benoa

After my sharing of our self-customised Bali itinerary (with price included), many readers have messaged me asking where we stayed. We stayed in two places; the first in a hotel where we spent minimal time as we were out all day sight-seeing and the second at a lovely resort where we hardly leave as it was the kids’ turn to enjoy the holidays. We chose to stay at Nusa Dua area as it is nearby […]

Places to visit in Bali for first timers

We spent 5 days in Bali this school holidays. It was our first time here. Prior to our trip, we took quite some time studying the places of interest in Bali before deciding which one we should go for. I never know Bali is so huge. It was quite tough to narrow down the places of interest we should visit as there are just too many. Although we were in Bali for 5 days, we only […]

Gardening Tips: DIY Self-Watering Planter

Whenever I go off for a holiday, I always worry about my little potted plants. The other day while browsing FB, I saw someone sharing a simple way to keep the plants hydrated while we are away. I decided to give it a try to see how reliable it is. All we need is an empty water bottle. Make a tiny hole on the cap. Just one tiny hole will do. A hole this tiny […]

Hotel Equatorial Melaka

I was back in Melaka recently for work purposes in town.  As Darling and the boys tagged along, I chose to stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka as it is situated directly opposite Dataran Pahlawan and is only 500m from Jonker’s Street. At least they can go shopping or sight-seeing while I am at work. Dataran Pahlawan is just across the road from Hotel Equatorial Melaka. Can you see the cheerful and brightly lit trishaws? There […]

Art & Craft: Sponge Owl

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 […]

Wellcome Seafood Restaurant, Sunway Mentari Park

Wellcome Seafood Restaurant has been around for some time in Sunway Mentari Park.

The restaurant spots a bright red signboard against an equally bright yellow building making it such a breeze to find. We were there last Sunday to try out the dishes by the new chef Alvin Chin.

Casahana Mooncakes

I was first introduced to Casahana mooncakes in 2013 when a friend presented a box to me during my confinement as she knew I won’t be able to go out to purchase them. I fell in love immediately with the beauty of their mooncakes and also the fact that their mooncakes are not as sweet as others out there.  Today, we received a special delivery from Casahana. We received 4 mooncakes out of which two […]

Ayden’s birthday is on the 31st and yes, it will be a holiday then as it will always be because his birthday falls on Malaysia’s Independence Day but we won’t be able to go back to my in-law’s then as I already have something else arranged for our family. So we went back to my in-law’s over the weekend for the obligatory cake cutting ceremony for Ayden’s birthday. My sisters-in-law always buy a cake for the boys […]

Concerns before sending Ayden to school

As you know, Ayden is home-schooled just like his elder brother Ethan during his preschool years. However, I intend to send Ayden to school earlier as I believe he may benefit socially in school. By school I meant those enrichment centres that is not classroom type of learning. We actually planned to send Ayden earlier this year but has been procrastinating as I’ve been busy. We finally made the effort to pay a visit to […]

Tooth Enamel Chipping Off in Toddler’s Teeth

We brought Ayden to the dentist end of May for his first tooth filling. You can watch the video of Ayden’s first tooth filling procedure here: Back then, the dentist wasn’t sure what causes Ayden’s teeth to erode. He suspected Ayden’s teeth grinding habit while sleeping to be the culprit but he wasn’t sure.  Today, we brought Ayden back to the dentist again as we discovered 4 new ‘holes’ on his teeth. Upon further checks, […]

Moon Folk Sauna Steamboat, Sri Petaling

I’ve heard of Sri Petaling but honestly speaking, I don’t remember ever coming to this area until last Sunday night. I joined several foodie friends to try out the latest steamboat hype – sauna steamboat. I was surprised that the area is really crowded hence getting a parking spot is quite a hassle. After circling the area a couple of times, we decided to park in the building opposite where there are ample of parking lots. Moon […]

What tastes great and is filled with lots of DHA goodness?

As parents, we know about the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for growing up kids. In particular, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which is a building block of the brain and eyes, as well as Vitamin D which is essential for healthy growth and development. The human brain achieves 90% growth by age 6. During this time it is important that children consume adequate amounts of DHA in their diet to support this period of rapid brain […]

Garden to Table

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I love gardening. I used to love planting flowers to beautify our home but these days, it is all about sustainable garden. I don’t have a land for my gardening hence I depend fully on pots to feed us.  It is our (Ayden and I) routine every evening to care for my plants. We’ll work on making compost soil, feeding the plants with coffee egg tea […]
