41. Nose bleed … again…

Ethan’s nose bleeds again. I said again because he has had this for so many times already as in my October post. http://submerryn.blogspot.com/2008/10/nose-bleed.html So when it happens just now, we are so calm, too calm. Me: Eh, nose bleeds. Darling: Come… see. A lot kah? Me: Err.. no. Darling: You know what to do kan? I go work now. Call me if it tak stop bleeding, ok? Then we exchanged group hugs and kisses and […]

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 […]

24. Eye On Malaysia

We went back to Malacca for our monthly visit to my hometown Malacca where my parents are residing. Feeling extremely happy and joyful with the perfect weather yesterday, we decided to visit the Eye On Malaysia in Malacca. ‘We’ this time consists of my Dad, Mum, Darling, Ethan and me. My Dad drove us there as Darling is not very familiar with Malacca town’s road. It took us 30 minutes before we finally get to […]

23. Early Christmas for Ethan…

Yesterday we went to a warehouse sale where toys with brands such as VTech, IQ Builders and many more were on sale. We bought a considerable amount of stuffs with such great bargains. This sale happens only once a year and we are very fortunate the venue is just 7.5 minutes drive away from home. These are Ethan’s early Christmas gifts: IQ Builders’ Smarty Cat Laptop, IQ Builders’ Raffle’s Alphabet Garden, V-Tech’s Playtime Bus, V-Tech’s […]

22. Meals in a flash…

Sometimes I do not have much time to cook as Ethan is NOT always so obedient to be sitting on the floor whilst I cook away. Sometimes he is being naughty and will not let go of my leg. That is the time I call for desperate measures… to cook a complete meal in a flash! Today happens to be the day he is naughty. I had to change my menu at the very last […]

21. First formal lesson

Last Saturday I brought Ethan to visit my ex-colleagues in Vital Years. Vital Years is an Early English Literacy Centre catered for children from the age of 2 – 10 years old. As soon as he entered the centre, he was so at home. He went straight towards the other children there and started playing with them. I left the classroom leaving him behind. I was expecting some drama but to my surprise he did […]

20. Disney Festive Fun-tasy at NZX Mall

Was anticipating this day for the WHOLE week! Finally we were there. And by we, I meant Darling, Ethan, Sherlene, Kym and James. Arrived there around 5.45pm so we went around to explore the mall. Nice place I would say. I loved the many varieties of shops around, but as James said it, the shops were mostly unmanned, we did not know why…Had dinner at Full House. The place was nice with very beautiful settings […]

16. Bad Picture Day – The final outcome

I posted a not so flattering pic of my friend Rose in one of my blogs last Oct. Such a pity that I did not post the so-called ‘flattering’ version. After much request from certain parties, here is the end result… Ok ok.. NOW you guys can start laughing at ME! I know I look weird… with that baju and all… Those are the good ol’ days and I sure did not feel ‘weird’ back […]

14. Banana Boy…

Was chatting with my cuz Jo when the topic of language came out. I was telling her Ethan’s circle of friends at the playground, Malays, Indons, Indians and Chinese… yes… in THAT order! It’s not that there are no Chinese kids around, there are, but you see, my little Ethan is like me. We speak English and BM… no Chinese dialect. So you can imagine the ‘chicken and duck’ scenario when these Chinese kids are […]
