We are FAMILY

What better way to spend the long weekend break than being with close family members? We went to my cousin Kym’s place on Sunday as my mother, sisters, nieces, aunt, uncle and cousins were there and had a great time. It was also Ethan’s first time with the Nintendo Wii but I didn’t get the opportunity to capture his action as I was too engrosed eating mata kucing. In the evening, we went to the […]

Shocking, freaky …

Today Darling, Ethan and I were having our family day out at the mall when this lady came and approach and called out my name. I turned to look but I didn’t recognise her. Then she introduced herself. She is the ‘J’ that always comments anonymously in my blog. How did she recognised me? She saw me browsing my own blog, (ok,ok, so sue me if I browse my own blog during a family day […]

Why is the Sun so hot? Why doesn’t he want to sleep?

Every morning, once Ethan got up from sleep, he’ll cross over from his crib to our bed. He will slowly but surely shove us aside to wake us up and to take over our pillows. What I’ll do though is to quickly pull up the shades and open the window to let the strong sun come in so that it will be too glaring for him to stop his ‘quest’ for our pillows. These days, […]

The cat’s eyes

I call this fruit ‘mata kucing‘. If you have been following my blog closely, you would have known by now that I am not so genius. Who can tell me what’s the difference between this and longan? Are they the same? Or are they different? Many people have advised me against eating this fruit, claiming that it is full of pesticide and harmful chemicals. But I love it so much. Darling knew how much I […]

What came in the mail today…

Ethan was about to fall asleep for his afternoon nap today when the mail man rang the bell and ‘woke‘ him up. We went out and got a registered mail from MummyMoon. This boy got excited and wanted to open up the mail so I let him.. Look at his sleepy eyes! Those eye bags are sure huge, don’t you think so? We got some foam work craft from her. Thank you so much MummyMoon […]

Sushi

Ethan will without fail request for sushi every weekend when we go out. I don’t know why, but that boy just loves sushi. I think he got it from me! I love sushi too! So finally I bought my sushi starter pack and tried making sushi this morning. Having him by my side whilst making sushi is sure difficult! When I cut a roll, he’ll eat quarter of it. When I placed the cut sushi […]

First Burn

Went back to my in-law’s place yesterday. SIL gave Ethan two lanterns. One Ultraman and another Pooh Bear. The Ultraman’s using candle and the Pooh using LED. Decided to let him try the Ultraman lantern. He was happy to carry it around. Then he put it down. You know he loves blowing candles right? So blow he did. Next thing we know, he went to grab that candle! Of course, the hot wax burnt his […]

Nice puzzles

Since Ethan is in the puzzle mania these days, my eyes are trained to spot PUZZLES whenever I go out shopping. I went to Popular today. Yes, yes, I went out, despite the H1N1. I just can’t stand being cooped in 7 days a week! I am as pale as a ghost already from the lack of sunshine, I can’t even remember how the street in my neighbourhood looked like, kay? (Alright, exaggerating there… ) […]

What do rhinocerous eat?

I taught Ethan on animals and what they eat sometime back. He knows what frog, roaches, giraffe, elephant, birds, cats and many more common animals eat. And then, he started playing with more ‘sophisticated‘ animals. Today, he asked me, “Rhino eat what?”, “Hippo eat what?”. I was dumb folded as I do not know the answer. I was not online that moment so I can’t google for answers. I quickly sms 3 people deemed ‘genius’ […]

How I toilet train Ethan

Remember I blog about Ethan being diaper free @ 2 years old? Well this is how I trained him… Now, can anybody actually understand what he says? I am so used to hearing him talk, I can understand, but for those of you listening for the first time, do try to see if you understand half the word he is saying…^^ If only the ACTUAL training is this easy, life will be marvelous! LOL..

When there’s something strange, who do you call?

Ghostbusters? No~lah, this is not a friendly Casper. This is the little rascal being bored to pieces. Since the H1N1 outbreak, he has been ‘grounded’ at home. No playground, no shopping, no nothing! (My area has cases and the schools has been ordered to close, so you can imagine my paranoia here). Every nook and corners of the house is his ‘playground’ these days. But I think, before he goes bonkers with boredom, I’ll be […]

Peranakan (Baba Nyonya Wedding)

When I got married, I did not do it the Peranakan style. I almost did not do it the Chinese style too. I did not wear that RED outfit (what is that call again?). I wore an English wedding gown. Mat Salleh celup lah kata kan… People like me are the ones that should be thrown far far away for not following custom. Anyway, all ME aside, my cousin Cherylene married her sweetheart Eddie the […]

How to peel and store pomelo

My sister in law went to Ipoh recently and gave us one pomelo. You know right, Ipoh is famous for this fruit? Anyway, how do you peel your pomeloes? For us, Darling peeled it this way… After that, clean the excess skin off the pomelo. Place it back in it’s outer ‘shell‘And close it. Open and take the pomeloes when you are ready to eat them. :)

The Sound of ABC

I never like to teach children below the age of 4 reading the phonetic way. I find it troublesome and they found it confusing. I always use the whole word approach for younger children. But as I was teaching my older students the phonetic approach, this busy body of mine was always around. Yesterday, he requested for the ABC book and started to sound all the 26 letters of the alphabets. To mothers out there […]

Grandma’s 88th Birthday

We celebrated our Grandma’s 88th birthday on the 8/8/09. I was a total failure as a blogger that night as I appeared without my camera! One thing you must know about my Grandma and her 9 children is that they have a neighbourhood all by themselves. Each of the house are located just next to each other. And we all just walk from one house to the other. So, from my mother’s house to my […]

Diaper Ant

Since Ethan is not using much diapers these days, his diaper bag is hardly touched, at least not until last weekend when I was packing to go back hometown. I did not check the bag initially. Just load somemore diapers in it. But don’t know why, I have a strong feeling to take them all out and rearrange. That is when I found out that ants have been living in there! Loads of ants scattered […]

Solving puzzles

I never thought of giving Ethan puzzles to play with. I always find puzzles troublesome and I can imagine him throwing all the pieces away and slowly losing piece by piece. Until that day, Irene gave Ethan a puzzle that consists of 4 sets of 12 pieces puzzles. He took an instant interest in it. To date, he is able to master all four puzzles. This is a video of him solving one of his […]

What itchy hands do to itchy legs…

Whenever the mozzies kissed him, he’ll scratch and scratch like mad. Doesn’t help that I applied some soothing creams on him. It won’t give the same satisfaction as scratching does! His itchy fingers will go on scratching his itchy legs until they bleed and leave unsightly scars. So these days, the first thing I’ll do if I see a mozzie bite on him is this! I have boxes and boxes of cute plasters to conceal […]

Spears making a comeback

Oh Baby Baby…Oops I Did It Again… Hit me baby one more time! This fella is trying to give Ms Spears a run for her money with his belly strutting act. Next thing I know, he’ll ask to get his belly pierced! Taken on the stage of Dumex promotion in 1U over the weekend. ^^

Shocking stares!

We normally have mall~weekends. There is nothing much we like to do except going to malls for window shopping. Yesterday, as we were walking, Ethan told me that he was getting tired and sleepy. So I placed him in his stroller and gave him his pacifier and something else to play with. Few minutes later, Darling and I got a very uneasy feeling as people were staring into the stroller with shocking looks on their […]

I’ll work harder!

Darling’s at the PC fair today. He wanted to get me a laptop, but at the very last minute, decided against it! Hahaha.. And I am still laughing here. Why? Because I never asked to be given a laptop in the first place. It’s just him, he saw me online so frequent these days, he is afraid I will ‘damage‘ his precious desktop at home and thought of getting me my own laptop. Alas, I […]

One diaper a day, keeps Mommy happy!

As I am typing this post, my bum is literally dancing on my seat. Why? Because Ethan is now officially diaper free during the day! Hurray! Every mother’s dream come true! I did not do anything to train him off diapers previously. Just the day after he turns two, I took his diapers off during the day and let him around the house with his underwear and pants. I had to monitor him and bring […]

Hidden Meat

Ethan is similar to me in the sense that he prefers to eat his greens compared to meat. If he senses that there are too much meat in the rice in his mouth, he will throw it out. He is not a picky eater. It’s just that he prefers to eat veges rather than meat. So, sometimes when I cook, I’ll try to hide the meat in the greens. One good example is the egg […]
