I’ve reach payout!

These days, Ethan refuses to nap in the evenings. Only occasionally will he nap. Most of the time, he’ll stay awake the whole day! That means, I have less time to go online. So when I do have time to go online at night when he finally dozes off, I’ll check my blog and go blog hopping first. Then, multi task to myLot. I’ve not been too active in myLot last week since I was […]

Meeting a blogger friend

See this lil‘ missy? Recognise this lil‘ missy? Good if you do, if you don’t, wait till the end of this post to see who she is. I’ve been chatting with this fellow blogger quite a lot over MSN. Yesterday, we finally met up @ The Curve, Ikano and Ikea. I went there with Ethan alone without Darling as he needs to work. She came with her hubs and lil‘ missy. This is my favourite […]

7 Days

Remember Ethan reciting the 12 months of the year? Well, I thought since he knows his twelve months, why not try the seven days of the week? Who knows, as foong says, it might be ‘kacang putih‘! But it is not so ‘kacang’ putih’ after all. Ethan finds it easier to recite the months instead of the days. But in the end, this is the result.. Don’t ask me why he pronounce his Saturday that […]

Take 2

Now that Ethan’s birthday is over and no more blowing of candles, Ethan and I will lie down on the floor and play back the video recordings of him blowing the candles as he loves it to the max! Just a moment ago, I found this video that I’ve overlooked when I did the earlier post on Ethan’s birthday. I find that I love his expression here very much. With just one blow, both the […]

(Not) The Correct Way To Carry Your Toddler

Each time after his bath, Ethan loves to be wrapped and carried this way. It never fails to make him laugh. I can’t carry him like that though. Only Daddy can do it.. ^^

Ethan is TWO today!

My little rascal is two today. How time flies! I baked him a simple butter cake of heart and star shape. He helped me in the process and got very excited once he saw the cute cake! The cake. This is how they looked like fresh out from the oven. I got these silicone moulds from Daiso. Darling got him a cake that was supposed to be shared with my students tonite. But suddenly, the […]

Do you know all the 12 months of the year?

I was teaching my Year 1 students the 12 months of the year yesterday. Today while preparing Ethan for bed, this is what he recites to me… I almost fainted! But I am indeed happy. Now that he knows his 12 months of the year, I think I’ll start him on the seven days of the week! ^^ Ethan @ 1 year 11 months

I’ve perfected my baking skills

When I first started baking, I was so proud of the outcome. I thought I had baked a wonderful piece of art, until a friend of mine kindly whispered to me that cakes are not suppose to pop and crack! Aiks, how come no one told me this before? LOL. So I practised baking again. This time I had it just right. My lemon cupcakes turn out just nice. Fluffy and beautiful. No cracks this […]

What’s so special about this okra dish?

Look at this okra dish I whipped out today. So what is so special about it? It’s very special I tell you. Money can’t buy. Because, I grew it myself! I finally harvested my first batch of okras grown in some pots in my porch! Yee Haa! My lovely okras…

How to peel your mangosteen into a lollipop

After my post on mangosteen lollipop, I’ve received many emails asking me how I managed to get the mangosteen to be peeled that way. So I’ve decided to get Darling to peel it and I recorded it for all of you to see. This is how he peels mangosteen into a lollipop. Enjoy.

It’s Darling’s Birthday today!

It’s Darling’s birthday today. We are not going anywhere tonight. I still have class as usual. Just got him a simple yogurt and cheese cake from Secret Recipe. He doesn’t need anything fancy this year, because he has this:- P/S: If you are wondering why the cake is written “Happy Birthday Daddy William and Ethan Boy”, it is because Ethan’s birthday falls exactly a week after Daddy’s! So today is actually a prelude to Ethan’s […]

Nintendo Wii for Grandmas

The recent weekend, my Mom was up in KL with several of my aunts at my cousin’s place. There she was introduced to Nintendo Wii! Fuiyo, never knew my Mom can keep up with the tech and this is the video of her playing Tennis on wii! And Ethan? He just stood there wondering what Grandma was doing! LOL.

Finally, we went swimming!

Okay, after so much thoughts, like a couple of ol‘ fellas, we finally brought Ethan swimming last Saturday! He went into the water without even hesitating! Enjoy the videos and photos. :) Father and son bonding in water…Ethan wanting to ‘drink’ the pool water! OMG…He is all smiles as he gets to walk in the pool, slippery though… Ok, so he is not too thrilled to be photographed with mommy.. Alrite, I know, I know… […]

Sleeping on an old fashion head rest

When I watched the old era Chinese movies, I often wondered how they sleep with their ‘box’ like head pillow. And then today, this little rascal suddenly went and lie on his ‘box’ of books. Suddenly reminded me of how those people back then slept! By the look of it, he doesn’t look too comfortable! What? Neck pain or cheek pain?Must ‘sayang‘ his dolphin first…Aiks… finally in slumber~land! In my opinion, Ethan looks extremely like […]

His New Toy

I was still in the Spring cleaning mood when I found this old typewriter that I used to carry with me back in the ol’ college days. Oh yes, I studied Private Secretaryship back then. Can you believe that? A person as disorganise as me doing PSC! Anyway, Ethan took a liking to it the instant he saw it and now, this has become his favourite new toy! While I’m typing away on my PC, […]

Local maids are better

So what if our neighbouring country doesn’t want to supply their labor to us anymore? We can train our locals to be our helper, and they can do even better! :D From cleaning…. to cooking… no problem! ^^

Is swimming safe?

Ethan’s going to be TWO next month, but believe it or not, he has NEVER been dipped into a swimming pool! Darling’s always think that Ethan is not ‘meaty’ enough to go swimming, scared he gets ‘cold’ easily. So, swimming has never been in any of our activity. Yesterday though, we brought Ethan to the swimming pool. Not to swim, but just for a look. LOL. This boy, smart enough to tell me he wants […]

The ‘workout’ that keeps all SAHM slim and fit!

The H1N1 scare has resulted in me ‘locking’ myself and Ethan at home. No playground (actually because it was raining), no shopping (scared bumped into sneezing and coughing people!), no outing. Darling was complaining bored at home. I was moody as you can read in my previous post. So I use the H1N1 scare as a reason NOT to go out. So what DID I do at home the whole of Saturday? Spring cleaning! I […]

I don’t want to blog

I don’t want to get up today. I don’t want to leave my bed. I don’t want to open my eyes today. I don’t want to do anything today. I don’t even want to blog! I’m feeling all down and moody. My appetite has been bad since the day before. Darling commented that I am ‘hollow’. He said I am like a walking zombie; doing things like a robot without ‘feelings’. I listen but didn’t […]

Fell in the bathroom

I was in the middle of my class. Darling went up to bathe Ethan. Later he came down and called me. I went to see him. His knee was bleeding and there were bruises all over his legs. He was carrying Ethan. Ethan looked fine. Darling looked pale. OMG! What happened? He told me he fell, WHILE carrying Ethan out of the bathroom. Double OMG! The moment I heard he slipped and fell, the first […]

Endless battle with aedes mosquito

On any ordinary day, I’ll bring Ethan to the playground in the evenings. I just love the fresh air and being OUT of the house. It is so refreshing to see children running, playing and enjoying themselves. Ethan loves his daily playground routine too. Unfortunately, lately, we always had to cut short our time in the playground. Normally, whilst playing, we will see a white van going around announcing that they will fog our area […]

Ethan reading Mandarin @ 23mths old

I’m so overly excited right now. My little ‘Banana Boy’ can read in Mandarin! I don’t speak a single word of any Chinese dialect, but for the sake of Ethan, we got him some Chinese kindie books and started to teach him simple words such as family members a couple of days ago. Surprisingly, he gets it very fast! Even faster than when I was teaching him to read in English! Now, I myself needs […]
