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 […]

11. ‘Kan-Cheong’ Kitchen

I’m a housewife. That means I cook, clean, do laundry, ironing, sweep, mop the floor, wash the loo and so many others that people nowadays hire a maid or domestic helper to do. But I am a housewife, so I do all that MYSELF! Ever since Ethan starts walking, getting the housework done is a challenge. Previously, I can just put him in his crib which I converted into a play-pen during the day and […]

Time is BAD… Ethan’s selling off his house…

What needs to be done, needs to be done… LOL.. the truth is, his little house is a ruin now. You know, how lasting can a board house be rite? With a boy as mischievous as Ethan, I was surprised the house […]

Bleeding Nose in Toddler

Ethan’s nose bleed again today. This time around we are very calm when it happened because this is the 3rd time it happened. I remembered the first time his nose bleed, cant really remember how old was he, but I know he was barely 1 year old. It was 2.30am in the morning. Darling and I just slept like.. what.. one hour ago? Ethan woke up crying in his crib. Me, blurry eyed, woke up […]

Our 3rd Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Didn’t go anywhere as I was down with a red eye and a swollen eye lid! Darling William said it was due to me peeping him excessively. Yeah rite, after 3 years of marriage, NOW only do I start peeping?! Why? Because now we have a little boy at home, no more running around the house in our bday suit… He he he… ;p Happy Anniversary Darling. I love […]

Ethan is 15 mths OLD!

My little Ethan turns 15 mths old yesterday. As usual, with each passing months, I will look at him sleeping and recall the day I held him in my arms for the very first time. He still looks exactly the same to me. Now I understand when people say that you will always be a baby in your mother’s eyes… My dear Ethan, You are starting to run now. Our daily game of Hide ‘n’ […]
