You Are My Sunshine

Ethan loves it when I sing “You Are My Sunshine” to him. And since it is so scorching hot these days, I’ve decided to do this craft with him. He loves it so much, he did almost 60% of it himself. Hop onto my craft blog here to see full details.

All about EGGS

I boiled some hard boiled eggs the other day and left it on the table to cool. Darling was way too helpful when he took the cooled eggs (with the shell still intact) and kept it back in the fridge! OMG! When I asked him which was the egg that I have boiled, he couldn’t remember! What was I suppose to do? Crack open all the eggs or boiled them all over again? But what […]

Origami Dog and Crab

Ethan’s a pro now when it comes to Origami. He is able to take instructions pretty well I dare say. The fact that this Origami Dog is so simple; you can even do it with your eyes close, helps too. From this moment onwards, all my crafts postings will be posted in details in my new craft blog here. And only crafts that involve Ethan will be published here. To see the complete steps for […]

Fish Spa

Walk into any major shopping mall and you’ll definitely see at least one or two fish spas around. No, no, no, I’m not talking about a spa for fish! I’m talking about the spa for your feet by the fish! Ethan just loves looking at the fish nibbling on people’s feet! Yucks! I personally have never tried it. Not a fan of soaking my feet into the water where many other ‘yucky’ feet have dipped […]

Beautifying the UGLY peacock

Remember I said Ethan loves me to draw him something while he is having his meals? Well, his favourite at the moment is creating peacocks from his hand print. I will help him outline his palms and then add in the body to create quite an ugly peacock. Ethan will then take the colours to ‘beautify‘ the peacock. Alas, the end result of the supposedly ‘beautiful’ peacock. ^^

The only way I can read the papers

I have a habit of reading newspapers on the floor. But nowadays it is not so easy to read anymore as I have an ‘inspector‘ who will inspect the paper and stand or sit on it as he wishes (especially when I am reading!). In order to keep him occupied and not disturb me when I am reading, I always have a pen handy to circle words that he knows and let him read it. […]

We are OK now

Thank you so much for all your wishes. I’m touching wood now saying that we are all ok today. Though I had diarrhoea this morning, it seems to subside a little now. Darling’s still a little bit weak, with some slight imbalance now and then. Ethan took his last flu medicine at 11am and is fine now. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that these two men in my life will be fine by Friday […]

It’s fever now

Last night Ethan woke up at 3am again. This time with high fever. He couldn’t open his eyes but I ‘forced‘ him to take his milk and some bread so that I can feed him his fever med. He refused to let me put the fever patch on his forehead, don’t know why. It’s not the first time using it, but somehow, this time he rejected it totally, screaming his lungs out requesting for it […]

All’s not well with Ethan

Ethan is showing signs of runny nose. Went to Jusco this evening and the whole time, his left nostril is wet. Wipe it away, wet again. The night before, he suffered his first insomnia. His normal bedtime is around 10pm. Last nite, up to 11pm he refuses to sleep. I finally force him to close his eyes and at 11.30pm he finally sleeps. But at 2am, just when Darling and I are about to go […]

For All Things Wonderful

I came across this new blog For All Things Wonderful recently. It is a blog to showcase the works of the extra ordinary talents out there so it says. But guess what? My origami rabbit is in there! That means I am extra ordinary! LOL! But then I read what it wrote about my rabbit. It says SIMPLE! Hahahahaha.. Now I know why I am in there! ^^ Our very own Mummy Angel’s Hello Kitty […]

The First Cut

Ethan experienced his first deep cut near his ankle today. Everything’s not so good with him recently. With the heat wave and now this. The thing is, he was calmer than Mummy and Daddy! We did not even notice when, where or how he got his cut. Only when he went to Darling and said “Pain, there” (pointing to his ankle) did Darling realise he was bleeding. I dare not even look, so Darling did […]

Which bank’s good for PayPal?

I want to have my own PayPal account, but I don’t have my own credit card. All my cards are subs from Darling. Pathetic eh? Darling is not a fan of online banking, shopping or anything online for that matters. He doesn’t even READ my blog! He forbids me to use the card for my PayPal account no matter how much I persuaded him. After seeking advise from top, down, left and right, Mummy Moon […]

Fighting off heatiness

It’s so ridiculously hot this week. Darling’s fighting a losing battle with the on and off throat irritation. Ethan has got rashes all over his back. Starting from the lower back, now spreading fast to the upper back and the back of his neck. Tried applying calamine and rash creams but nothing work. When everything fails, I try the alternative way. Was in 1 Utama yesterday. The perks of being a housewife is being able […]

Multiplication Made Easy (Table 11)

Today’s lucky number is 11. Any single digit multiplied by eleven will result in the double up of the said single digit. 1 x 11 = 112 x 11 = 223 x 11 = 33……9 x 11 = 99 The interesting part is multiplying double or more digits by eleven. Example 263 x 11=?Take 263. 2 being the first number and 3 being the last number.263 x 112 + 6 + 3 x 11Bring down […]

Cute Sandwich

On weekends, I can choose NOT to cook. We can go out to eat. And if I don’t cook, I’ll have more time to spend with Ethan. And when I have more time with him, what do I do? Teach him to cook! LOL. Not really. All I did was let him prepare his own sandwich for breakfast. These are Ethan’s latest favourite items. They are egg moulds that doubles as sandwich cutters. His favourite […]

So Dark!

Was in the playroom. Soon, it was dinner time. Persuaded the little one to get to the dining room for dinner. He refused. I was running late with my next class commencing in just half an hours time. Still not moving out from that room. Thought of using the ‘scare’ tactic. I switched off the lights and closed the door, leaving him all alone in that dark room. Waited outside for him to shout and […]

Multiplication made easy

I am not a genius when it comes to the timetables. A student of mine recently taught me this method for the multiplication of 6’s. Your regular clock will come in handy for this. 1 x 6 = ?Look at your clock. The minute hand must be on the number that will be multiplied with 6. In this case, it is 1. If the minute hand is at number 1, how many minutes does that […]

Now Everyone Can Draw :)

As Ethan is closer to two years old, he is getting ‘naughtier’. I find it more and more challenging to feed him everyday as it is difficult to get him to stay put for long. He no longer wants to be in his high chair, so I let him stand on the ordinary dining chair. But I really need to entertain him otherwise he’ll be climbing the table and all! One way I can keep […]

Sugar Apple

I finally found a type of fruit that sparks Ethan’s interest to the extend that he is willing to eat it on its own! It is none other than the delicious Sugar Apple! (Or Buah Nona as it is famously known in Malaysia). I think he doesn’t realise he was eating a fruit! I read somewhere on the net that flesh can be pressed through a sieve to eliminate the seeds and is then added […]

Salted Egg Super Man!

I don’t speak Cantonese, neither do I speak Mandarin nor any Chinese dialect for all that matters. But someone once told me that the above thingy is also called “Salted Egg Super Man” in Canto. To me, all I know is that it is an “AutaMan“. I seriously hate it so much! But somehow, Ethan is fascinated by it. He never watched that cartoon on tv before. Dunno why, he just loved it when he […]

How do I clean these hard to reach places?

Ethan has a water tumbler like the above. The problem is, I find it difficult to clean the entire bottle properly. It has so many areas that I find impossible to reach. Forget about the nipple brush, it can’t even fit in. I ended up using tooth pick to clean certain areas but find it not doing a good enough job. Several times, I ended up disposing the tumbler away when I find that it […]

Teaching Aid

When it comes to teaching aid, I like to DIM (Do It Myself!). Of course not everything I can DIM. Sometimes I do purchase the ready made teaching aid. But at the moment, I prefer to DIM as it is cheaper and I can customise it to my liking. Ethan’s favourite as he can ‘peel’ off all the words and zap it back in place… …because I use valcro to place them together. made of […]

He knows what sounds certain animals make… The last […]
