Bake with Ayden: Steamed Banana Cupcakes

We love bananas. It is one of our favourite local fruits. Banana is KING when it comes to nutrition. It is power-packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium and many more. Potassium helps to maintain a healthy balance of fluids in the body and as an electrolyte, potassium stimulates nerves and muscles throughout our body. I eat banana everyday before going for my evening jog. Last week, it rained almost every evening deterring us from […]

Penang’s Latest Children Attraction: Dino Gym @ The TOP, KOMTAR

During the recent school holidays, we made a trip up to Penang. One of the reason we went up is to visit the new Jurassic Research Center at The TOP, KOMTAR. The boys love it there as they got to see their favourite dinosaurs come ‘alive’. Imagine seeing dinosaurs in your books up close and roaring in front of you. That was what they got during our visit there. You can read all about it […]

Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La, Penang – A Family Friendly Resort

We love Penang. It is only 4 hours drive away from Kuala Lumpur hence it is easily our favourite choice for a short getaway whenever we need a boost of some Vitamin Sea and nice, sandy beaches. We usually stay at Batu Feringgi whenever we go up to Penang as the boys love to spend time playing by the beach. It is no different this school holidays with Golden Sands Resort by Shangri-La being our […]

Penang’s Latest Family Attraction: Jurassic Research Center @ The TOP, KOMTAR

Penang has long been enticing visitors with its beautiful coasts and scrumptious cuisines. This beautiful island welcomes modernity yet at the same time preserves its traditions and old world charm. I remember visiting KOMTAR, the tallest building in Penang when I was little. It has been THAT long ago. Last weekend I found myself back, this time at The TOP, KOMTAR with the boys to visit Jurassic Research Center, one of the latest attractions here. The TOP @ KOMTAR […]

It has been over a month after Chinese New Year and we still have leftover chicken floss. How? Make our favourite French Toast with Chicken Floss of course.

Canton2go – Food delivered right to your doorstep

At this stage of my life, I spend so much time raising the kids, we hardly get to catch up with friends. Our friends are also mostly busy with either work or their family that if we don’t make the effort, we will never get to meet-up. Last weekend, we decided to surprise our good friend; the person you don’t always see but is very much involved in my blog. He is the one who manages […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Masak O

We are going to share a Peranakan Nyonya dish today. It is a popular soup dish called Ayam Masak ‘O’.  One of the quickest and easiest soup to prepare, it is easily a favourite among children as well as adults with its soupy gravy, soft potatoes and flavorful chicken with lots of ginger. Though we use ginger to cook this, it is not gingery hot but rather just nice to complement the whole thing. Best […]

My Cockroach Hero

The other day when there were only me and Ayden at home, I saw a cockroach in the toilet. You know me, I freak out each time I see cockroaches. They are my worse nightmare.  Seeing that there is no one to help us, I told Ayden to stay out and used aerosol to spray it dead.  The cockroach did not die instantly though. It laid down on the floor with its legs kicking in […]

Cook with Ayden: Keledek Kukus

Sweet potato has many health benefits. They are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene). Our body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. We need vitamin A for healthy skin and good eye health and vision hence it is an excellent food choice for growing kids. As sweet potato is naturally sweet, it is delicious eaten on its own. It is extremely easy to cook sweet potato. All we need to do is […]

Cook with Ayden: Chicken Stew

Little Ayden is getting really comfortable with our rice cooker these days. He uses it to bake cakes and recently cooked a chicken dish in it. I saw how easy it was to cook using the rice cooker and decided to let him try cooking Chicken Stew in it. There is a whole lot of ingredients required to cook this Chicken Stew but these are mostly basic stuffs that you’ll usually have ready in your kitchen on […]

Ayden @ 3Y5M Let me also share this video of Ayden summarizing the story of The Grasshopper and Ants in Bahasa Malaysia (in case you missed […]

Robi – The Trilingual Humanoid Robot

Children today are exposed to robotics very early in their lives. Robots are aplenty amongst us. Even vacuum cleaners are robots these days. Besides these robots that children encounter every day, there are countless courses easily available for kids to learn the basics of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science among others. Ethan loves robotics. He has shown a keen interest in robots from a very young age so we let him explore further […]

Cook with Ethan: Bendi Goreng Bawang Belacan

After all the cooking videos I did for Ayden, I think it is only fair to have one for Ethan too. That boy has been so occupied with school, homework, co-coriculum and more that I hardly have time to speak to him on weekdays  Just a blink of an eye, Ethan is already 9 going to be 10 this year. He is growing up fast before my very eyes so I better take more pictures […]

Being Fit: Pure Luck or Lots of Hard work?

A recent conversation I had with an acquaintance had her saying this to me, “You are lucky to not grow sideways after having kids”. I beg to differ. LUCK has nothing to do with me growing sideways or not.  I put on over 20kg during each of my pregnancies. Being only 4’9″, the additional 20kg was really taxing on me. Closer to the end of my pregnancy, I waddled around like a penguin as I […]

Cook with Ayden: Ayam Satay Buah Keras

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I did a live Peranakan cooking demo at The Straits Hotel and Suites, Melaka. One of the dish we cooked is Ayam Satay Buah Keras. Today, Ayden cooked the same dish at home but instead of using the wok, he used the rice cooker because he is too young to be handling a wok and a gas stove. If you wish to try cooking this dish, do […]

Jazzy Sunday Brunch @ Hotel Equatorial Melaka

We all look forward to weekends, don’t we? After all the hard work during the weekdays, it is a much sought after break to chill, unwind and recharge over the weekends with some good food and music.  Music affects us directly. We react differently to different types of music; upbeat songs make us excited while slower songs may make us sad. However, studies have shown that Jazz relieves stress. Jazz’s soothing melody helps us relax yet at […]

Bercerita bersama Adik Ayden: Belalang dan Semut

Ayden is 3 years 5 months. He is still not attending any preschool at the moment so it is entirely my responsibility to keep up with his total development. Children pick up a new language best below 6 years of age so I take this opportunity to teach Ayden an extra language besides English. I teach him to speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I wish I can teach him Mandarin but that is totally an alien language […]

Cook with Ayden: How to Make Soya Cincau

Today we are making something really simple because we used store-bought items  Let’s call it a cheat-day as I am a bit lazy to prepare them from scratch. Nevertheless, it still gets a double thumbs-up from Lil Ayden as shown below: What is it that he made that excites him so much? Watch this video: It is also his first tutorial in BM  Ayden @ 3Y5M

Playground Maintenance

We’ve been frequenting this playground since big brother Ethan was a baby. The moment I was out of confinement I started to bring him here, until today together with lil brother Ayden. This was big brother Ethan when he was 17 months old.  This was lil bro Ayden when he was 2 years old. You can see that the equipment in the playground had obviously been vandalised over the years. That was back in 2015. […]
