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 […]

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.

Homeschool Activity for Toddlers: Painting

As you may know, Ayden is home-schooled. I did the same with the elder brother until he is ready to go to Primary One in a public school. I intend to do the same with Ayden. I am thankful that I have the luxury of time to guide my kids during their formative years.  It requires a lot of discipline to homeschool a child. If I am lazy, my kid won’t be doing much hence […]

Toddler DIY activities: How to Make Watermelon Juice

One of the easiest juice to make is watermelon juice. All we need is a blender to get a refreshingly sweet and hydrating thirst quencher. It is so easy to make that Ayden now makes his own watermelon juice to go together with his lunch.  We don’t add sugar nor water to our watermelon juice. We love it as it is – 100% pure watermelon juice. You may add water if you find it to […]
