Sometimes, being DOWN is good.

A couple of days ago , Blogger went down for an hour for maintenance purposes. Most of us were in our work place then. It’s interesting to see how barely a minute after Blogger went down, FB and Twitter were flooded with horrified bloggers’ updates of not being able to log into Blogger. I was in the office too then and was wondering WHAT TO DO during that ONE hour. Should I spend that time […]

Of guns and lollipops

ParenThots interviewed me not too long ago regarding the topic of toy guns. They wanted to know if I’m in favour or against the idea of letting my child play with toy guns. Well, in general I am against Ethan playing with toy guns. I don’t buy him toy guns just like how I don’t buy him lollipops! What good are there in both of them you tell me? BUT I do know that no […]

"A Touch of Comfort with Kleenex" Mom’s Day Out

Five mommy bloggers got a much deserved “Touch of Comfort” from Kleenex at a half-day parenting and pampering session  which featured Datuk Sheila Majid as a special guest speaker yesterday. Held at Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, I went alone without Ethan. Darling was such a DARLING! He took care of Ethan while I was spa-ing away (^_^) Getting my hand massaged. Bliss! Should have given us a leg massage instead considering the distance we […]

Asia Cafe Kota Damansara

My friends on FB know that I frequent Asia Cafe @ Kota Damansara often. They asked me what is so good there. Well, I must say the playground there is a factor. It keeps Ethan entertained. But it could be a headache to some parents when their kids refuse to eat because of the playground! Playground aside, the major reason why I patronised Asia Cafe so often is because of their drinks :D I don’t normally […]

Triumph 125th Anniversary Fashion Show

Triumph celebrated their 125th Anniversary with a 30-minutes ensemble of their latest offering in 1Utama. When I ‘check-in’ on FB telling people to come over for a sizzling hot inner wear showcase, many were surprised and even sceptical that it is even possible in Malaysia, more so in the public eyes in a shopping mall! I have not witnessed an inner wear fashion show in public so was very excited anticipating it.  Called Darling to […]

Teddylicious Trudy & Teddy

I still remember on our 1st wedding anniversary, we toured Europe. I fell in love all over again. I love the culture, the food and most of all I love the Europeans’ sense of fashion. That was five years ago. *terkenang masa dulu.. hu hu hu :(* Try reading the papers or browse online these days and I bet the first thing that catches your attention is the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Casa del Rio Melaka

We were lucky to be invited to Casa del Rio Melaka Open House last Saturday. Darling, Ethan and I woke up really early in the morning and began our journey down south. We took the North-South Highway and exited at Ayer Keroh Toll Plaza. Drove another 15 minutes or so and here we are at the Quay Side overlooking Casa del Rio! :D Located on Jalan Kota Laksamana, the hotel is a literal two minute […]

A Touch of Comfort

I’m so done with telling the world how Ethan and I have been a little under the weather lately. Ethan’s been fighting a losing battle with flu and cough for weeks now while I get stomach discomfort at the slightest indigestion making me very stressed up when it comes to eating!  Back to his runny nose, the skin surrounding his nose area is reddish and injured due to the constant friction and rubbing when I […]

Malacca River Cruise

We were in Malacca last weekend and this time I did not just stay home. I ‘toured’ the city :D We met up with Carol and Eric and started planning what to do. I tell you, being a Malaccan, I’m the BEST person to get opinion of where to go, what to do and eat in Malacca! My answer is always an almost immediate, “DUNNO” LoL! What can I say? I seldom go out jalan-jalan […]

Howdy folks! How are you enjoying your long weekend? It’s a beautiful day — the sun is shining, the birds are chirping. What could be more perfect than a bike ride? The bicycle is getting more and more popular these days since it’s rather environment friendly. So make sure you ride safe! It’s important to wear your bike helmet to avoid head injury! Wear a bike helmet EVERY TIME YOU RIDE, even if you are […]

Fish with fruity sauce

Ethan loves fried fish. I can just fry a fish and throw some browned garlic on top and he’ll finish the whole thing easily. I fried fish again today.. And when I looked at it I feel so sad! LoL! So pitiful right my fish? :P So I decided to do something with it. I rummaged through my fridge and unfortunately I don’t have many things in it. I found strawberries, green apples, carrots and […]

Fried Ice-Cream anyone?

My nieces have been raving endlessly about the fried ice-cream from Jonker Walk. I, who have never been to Jonker Walk previously can just sulk in the corner whenever they mentioned the fried ice-cream. But not anymore for I, da Submerryn have finally conquered Jonker Walk a week ago where I also found something long and springy and fell in love with it! Read about the amazing long stuff here :D I went to Jonker […]

EMO post

It’s that time again when I’m down, really, really down! EMO to the max! The first thing I did when I arrived office was try to deactivate my FB account but guess what? I wasn’t able to do that as I created Crafty-Crafted Fan Club and if I deactivate my FB account, the Fan Club will be affected! As EMO as I am, I’m still sane and no way will I let my precious Crafty-Crafted Fan […]

While I was sleeping, I kinda overheard Darling and Ethan’s conversation. Ethan : How to do this, Daddy? Darling: Err.. dunno. Why so hard one this one? Nevermind, ask Mommy afterds. Ethan: But Mommy sick, kenot disturb! Darling: Ok… Apparently […]

World’s Tallest Indoor Tube Slide

We went to Empire Mall for the very first time a couple of days ago. I needed to look for something but couldn’t find it in the end. What we did discover however was… This! The world’s tallest indoor tube slide! Aiyayayaya! My knees went wobbly just looking at it! This is the ‘launching’ platform.. No turning back once you’re tossed out of that hole! All the way down, down, down and down. Four-storey down! […]

Let’s together fold MORE than one thousand origami cranes for the Land of the Rising Sun in light of their recent quake and tsunami plight. Origami papers and simple instructions were provided. Ethan trying to figure out what to do.. He is getting […]

Exhilarating Exora

While others prefer retail therapy to calm them down, I like to rant in my blog! Blogging is therapeutically beneficial to my soul! Just the other day I was whining on how we needed a bigger car and just like magic, Proton Exora offered me to test-drive the Exora, Malaysia’s first home-grown MPV. Aiyo I tell you, if you followed me on FB you’ll know how I jumped at their offer! Terangkat babe! Macam tak […]

Finally on Saturday evening, we step foot in Jonker Walk.. Woo hoo! Jonker Walk baby! Look at the crowd! I found something LONG and SPRINGY and immediately I fell in love with it! :P […]

Our Earth Hour

Where were you and what did you do during the recent Earth Hour? As for me, we were at Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh Malacca. Awesome place! We had dinner at Nusantara with our blogger friends. At 8.30pm sharp, Philea turned off all non-essential lights and we dined in ‘darkness’. Romantic to the max! :D Buffet spread illuminated by candle lights They even organised an interesting activity to fill up the entire one hour. […]

The Love For Macarons

If you have an FB account I’m sure you’ve seen this before.. “All of us have many wishes, to be thinner, to have more money, a new phone, an iPad. A Cancer patient has only one wish- to kick cancer’s ass. I know that 97% of you won’t post this as your status but my friends will be the 3% that do. In honour of someone who is fighting cancer, post this for at least […]
