Chinese New Year OOTD

I am back! Am finally home with fast internet connection! *Dusting off cobwebs* I’ve not updated my blog for a week now because the internet connection in both my in-law’s and my parent’s place are so lagging it will take me hours just to post a proper blog post so I decided to take a break completely.

Christmas Decor 2015: Berjaya Times Square

It’s so close to Christmas! So many things to do with so little time!  The next mall I’m featuring in my Christmas Decor 2015 series is Berjaya Times Square.  Quite a lovely piece of decor in this corner.  Berjaya Times Square’s 2015 decor.  I think they reuse last year’s record breaking Christmas tree and added lots and lots of snowflakes around it.  Berjaya Times Square’s 2014 decor.

Playing music at the Grand Musical Staircase, Berjaya Times Square

I don’t frequent the city centre often but today we dropped by Berjaya Times Square to run an errant. I’ve read somewhere that they have a grand musical staircase but the last I was there last year, I could not find it. Maybe I did not look thoroughly.  Today, we found it by chance. I was walking nearby when I heard a beautiful melody and when I looked up, I saw this: The Grand Musical […]

Halloween Footprint Ghost for Kids

Halloween is just a couple of days away. Though Ayden is still clueless about what Halloween is all about, it doesn’t stop us from making a simple ghost artwork for fun.  I guided him to trace the outline of his foot on a piece of white paper.  Happy ghosts come in twos. He said they are very cute.  I cut the ghosts out for him to be used as bookmarks but he rather play with […]

Raya Decoration – 1 Utama

This is 1 Utama’s Raya decor. Nice. I like it. They even use real grass though a lot has already dried up and turned brown. It reminds me of their decor several years ago with paddy field filled with water and all. The paddy field was beautifully done but we needed to move around it with caution as the kids might fall into it and there is no way we can push a stroller around. […]

Mother’s Day Celebration at Eastin Hotel

Now knowing me, you’ll know that I always prioritize the kids before me so Darling knew this will be the PERFECT way to celebrate Mother’s Day and went […]
