Ethan attended a holiday programme somewhere nearby the Main Place, USJ today. Ayden and I hung around the mall while waiting for him. It was our first time here.  The Christmas decor at the entrance of the Main Place.  We walked inside and came across a giant snow globe.

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

Our costs of living is getting higher. It is advisable to grow our own food where possible. I grow spinach, tomatoes, brinjals, ladies fingers, red beans and even corns for our consumption. 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 […]

How to Grow and Harvest Red (Adzuki) Beans in 60 Days

My family, especially Ayden love red bean with gula melaka dessert soup. I sometimes boiled it together with black glutinous rice. On other occasions, I’ll add glutinous rice balls into the red bean soup.  Red Bean Dessert I cook this dessert at least once every week and have been buying organic red beans from the supermarket. One day, I decided to try growing them ourselves.  Growing red beans is extremely simple. All we had to do was […]

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. Fast forward 3 years later, I have totally forgotten about […]

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: DIY Self-Watering Planter

Whenever I go off for a holiday, I always worry about my little potted plants. The other day while browsing FB, I saw someone sharing a simple way to keep the plants hydrated while we are away. I decided to give it a try to see how reliable it is. All we need is an empty water bottle. Make a tiny hole on the cap. Just one tiny hole will do. A hole this tiny […]

Garden to Table

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I love gardening. I used to love planting flowers to beautify our home but these days, it is all about sustainable garden. I don’t have a land for my gardening hence I depend fully on pots to feed us.  It is our (Ayden and I) routine every evening to care for my plants.

Unboxing TRANSFORMERS Robots-In-Disguise Hyperchange Heroes – Optimus Prime

Before the school holidays, after collecting big brother Ethan’s report card, we brought the boys to 1 Utama to check out TRANSFORMERS toys. Ethan is a huge fan of TRANSFORMERS and has a lavish collection of them which he is reluctant to share with Ayden. He is afraid Ayden will damage his TRANSFORMERS collection because Ayden will recklessly try to transform them. The boys got lucky this time as Hasbro Toy Malaysia, presented them each […]

Little helper in the kitchen

This year with big brother Ethan in the school’s morning session, I started to cook dinner daily as we will have dinner and go to bed earlier compared to when he was in the evening session. The fact that lil Ayden is turning 3 and is able to help in the kitchen is also a contributing factor to me cooking more often.   I do my marketing once a week and try to make sure […]

Homegrown Organic Pak Choy

I have successfully grown spinach in milk cartons. It is highly successful that I have continuous supply of spinach since 2015 till today. I love it that I can just pluck them at any time and have fresh spinach for dinner hence I decided to try growing other types of leafy vegetables.  I bought this Pak Choy seeds.
