Rechargeable battery

A rechargeable battery, also known as a storage battery, is a group of two or more secondary cells. These batteries can be restored to full charge by the application of electrical energy. In other words, they are electrochemical cells in which the electrochemical reaction that releases energy is readily reversible. Rechargeable batteries can offer economic and environmental benefits compared to disposable batteries. Some rechargeable battery types are available in the same sizes as disposable types. […]

Salmon gone to waste

Every week, when we do our grocery shopping, I’ll head for the vege section and Darling and Ethan will do the fish and chicken section. Last Saturday, I thought I heard Darling said that the chicken is not too fresh so he did not buy any. And stupidly I assume that he did not buy the salmon fillets as well. Do not know what makes me assume that. So when we got home, being tired […]

First Aid

What is first aid?First aid is the initial assistance or treatment given to a casualty for any injury or sudden illness before the arrival of an ambulance, doctor or other qualified person. St John Ambulance believes that everyone should learn at least the basic first aid techniques. You may need to use them at any time at home, at school or work or even while you’re travelling. Knowing what to do can make the difference […]

Home Grown Project

I love nature, plants and gardening. I wish for Ethan to love them as much as I do. To make him understand the circle of life of a plant, I started a home grown project with Ethan about two weeks ago. Our first project consists of growing spring onions and tomatoes. For the spring onions I get Ethan to place a red onion into the pot and help him cover it with soil. Two weeks […]

40. Christmas in The Curve and Ikano

Since Ethan has just recovered from his fever, we decided to just chill and watch tv at home on the first half of our Christmas Day. Only later in the evening do we go out to check out what’s all the hype about in the Curve. Alright, so the decor is simply amazing, beautiful I shall say. I just lurve all the animals over there, like an indoor zoo! Anyway, the place is sooooooooo over […]

38. Fever.. what is it?

After experiencing so many ‘feverish’ episodes with Ethan, I decided to go to google for some help to understand more about fever. Here is what I think worth sharing.. In healthy kids, fevers usually don’t indicate anything serious. Although it can be frightening when your child’s temperature rises, fever itself causes no harm and can actually be a good thing — it’s often the body’s way of fighting off infections. And not all fevers need […]

37. Daddy + Mummy + Ethan = 1 Happy ‘Monkey’ Family

Ethan is still feverish. At times, his temperature went up to 39.1! Not only does Darling has to force him to take his oral medication, he also needs to insert the Voltaren Supp into Ethan’s rectum to bring down the temp ASAP. Luckily it is the weekend, so Darling is around to help out. That also means that we had to cancel all our plans and stay in the whole weekend. It was tough because […]

36. Boys will be boys

My little Ethan is not so little anymore. Well, he is still little in size, but not so little on attitude. He is going to be 17 months old this 21st. He is like a bolt of lightning at home, dashing here and there in the speed of light. With just a blink of an eye, he can be from Point A to Point B. Blink twice and he will be high on the staircase […]

35. KLCC… where is the magic, Oh big big tree?

Last Sunday we went to KLCC to continue our quest for the Magical Sights of Christmas. Quite disappointing I would say. Okay, so the tree there is very very tall. (Not too sure, but I think it has to be more than 5 storey tall!) But not all big things has got to be beautiful. The tree decor and all is nice but I think it seriously lack of lights. Without the lights, where are […]

34. Ethan has got swollen ankle/feet?

Ethan woke up this morning with a flush and warm body. I guess he was having a slight fever today. During breakfast, Darling saw 3 red marks that looked like insect bites on Ethan’s right leg near the ankle. We were not sure if it was caused by mosquitoes or other insects as we did not see the ‘culprit’ who did it. By now Ethan is getting warmer. To soothe his temperature we gave him […]

33. Lunch with friends

Chin Ling and King Mee decided to take leave on Tuesday. I did not ask if they were clearing their leave or what, but they planned to have lunch in Jaya 1. Michelle told me about the lunch plan on Monday and I immediately agreed for I have NOT seen them for quite some time now. Boo King ended up joining us too. Being the only Macho man there, he warned us NOT to talk […]

32. Christmas In Sunway Pyramid

In my quest for THE magical sights of Christmas, we ended up in Sunway Pyramid after our brunch in Holiday Villa Subang. The decor in the new wing is very lovely, kids will definitely love it. The ‘Strawberry Wheel’ is very cute. Darling and Ethan had a lovely ride on it. Just flash your Mastercard to ride.Then there is Santa on stage. I took Ethan up to meet Santa. Ethan dare not touch Santa. I […]

31. Dim Sum Brunch In Holiday Villa Subang

Saturday, 13 December 2008. Met up with Darling’s friend S.K Lim, wife Soo Ping and son, little Lim Jie Cheng, 13 mths old in Holiday Villa Subang for Dim Sum brunch. If all this while I thought my Ethan is super rascal and active, today I discovered that someone has thrown Ethan of his throne. Little Lim JC! This boy is so cute I tell you. At 13 mths old, he weighs 10.5kg. Ethan at […]

30. What is happening to my car porch beam?

Something weird is happening to my car porch’s beam. A few nights ago the beam was just nice and clean. Yesterday however, I discovered that it had turned rusty yellowish at the bottom part. No, it is not mouldy. The paint started falling off. OMG, what is happening to my beam? My car porch is fully covered, so it is impossible that the rain causes this, rite? Right? I really do not know what is […]

29. Chickenpox (Varicella) Vaccine

Ethan will be turning 17 months old this 21 December 08. His Daddy is planning to send him for the Chickenpox (Varicella) Vaccine. I am still wondering if I should let him take the vaccine or just face it like a man! I then decide to google for some answers and here is what I found… What kind of vaccine is it? The chickenpox vaccine is a live attenuated vaccine. This means the live, disease-producing […]

28. The Magical Sights of Christmas

Christmas is definitely drawing closer. Although the majority of shopping complexes started late this year with the decor and all, the magical sights of Christmas is slowly popping out. My first magical Christmas stop was at NZX Mall, Petaling Jaya. http://submerryn.blogspot.com/2008/11/disney-festive-fun-tasy-at-nzx-mall.html Last weekend was my second stop of the magical Christmas quest – 1 Utama. This year 1 Utama decided to use Alice In The Wonderland for their theme. I still remembered last year when […]

27. Mommy Blogger or Mommy Barber?

Not only am I a Mommy Blogger, I am also a Mommy Barber. Ethan has my genes and that means his hair is like mine, which means it’s like a lion’s mane if not well taken care of. Every three weeks or so, I have to give his hair a little snip here and there. Otherwise, he’ll look like a lion out hunting! When he was 2 to 3 months old, I took him to […]

26. Ethan’s first ‘camping’ experience..

The school holidays has brought ‘massive heavy crowd’ to the playground, a stone’s throw away from our home, to a point where it became an ‘eyesore’ to see children ‘scattered’ around every where! It’s like a ‘sci-fi war zone‘… children screaming and moving aimlessly at the speed of light! Crowd control is severely needed this time of the year. A resident of my neighbourhood has taken the wise step of organising an informal ‘Picnic Camp’. […]

25. Chicken Eggroll

My Darling loves chicken meat. He doesn’t eat beef, doesn’t like mutton, definitely not a fan of duck meat, on the border line when it comes to pork but loves chicken and fish. So when I am working out the menu for tomorrow’s dishes, I’ll have to make sure I have either chicken or fish in it. For today’s menu, I have Chicken Eggroll as the main course. Here goes… Ingredients: 2 eggs Minced meat […]
