Amway Atmosphere Drive

How familiar are you with this picture below? This scenario is almost impossible to avoid if we are on the road these days and the fact is, we do spend a lot of our time stuck in traffic travelling from one point to the other. Being in the comfort of our car, we are unfortunately not sparred from air pollution. We rely on our air-conditioning system for the air circulation in our vehicle yet their […]

Christmas Decorations: 1 Utama

We were at 1 Utama last weekend to check out their Christmas decor.  I don’t get it at first. All I see are giant poinsettia flowers.  And then this huge albino spider appeared in front of me, scaring the heck out of me *almost dropped my camera*  I was thinking, “What does spiders got to do with Christmas?!” I bet they are going to keep those spiders after Christmas and spray paint them black come […]

Gardening with Ayden: Worm Farming

A worm farm turns organic waste into nutrient-rich fertiliser for your plants and soils but all I have are small bins for breeding worms, not those big professional ones for worm farming. I breed earthworms so I can transfer them into my potted plants as they help increase nutrient in the soil and create better drainage. Ayden has been watching me breed earthworms for some time. Today, he requested to have his very own worm […]

Gardening with Ayden: DIY Calcium Powder

These are all grown in pots as I don’t have much land at home. To ensure good harvest especially when you are growing fruiting plants such as tomatoes, brinjals, ladies fingers and corns, you need to make sure the soil is fertile and […]

Toy Review – Disney PLANES

Back when Ayden was 3 months old, big brother Ethan received a whole lot of toys sponsorship from Mattel. We shared some of the toys with our readers via giveaways. We also gave out some to our friends. Ayden was too young to be playing with any of those toys back then. I kept some so he can play with them when he is older.

PLAY-DOH Town Firehouse Playset Review and Giveaway

Being a stay-at-home-mom and to home-school both my boys during their preschool years is the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I have to admit it is more challenging to home-school Ayden compared to elder brother Ethan as Ayden is more playful. Lessons planned for Ayden are usually in shorter durations. What matters most is the learning experience he gained from all these quick sessions. At 3 years old, Ayden’s lessons are majority play-based. We […]

Gardening Tips: How to keep cats from pooping in my pots

I love gardening but one thing I dislike about it is that cats love pooping in my pots. It gets pretty annoying to be scooping poops every morning. No, we can’t use cat poop as fertilizer for my food plants.  What I do is to scatter orange peel in the pots regularly. Most cats dislike the smell of citrus hence this will deter them from pooping here to some extend. We eat oranges a lot […]

This two big onions represents Mummy and Daddy (according to the cheeky Ayden). The boys planted little onions for their own collection.  We placed the […]
