Christmas & New Year’s Eve Dining at Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya

Jingle all the way, Christmas is on its way! Year end is always the best time of the year since it’s the long school holidays and of course the arrival of Christmas and New Year soon after. I love Christmas decor hunting and this year, Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya impressed me with their Christmas decorations. A lovely snow covered ‘house’ complete with a chimney and cheerful LED Christmas lights lit up the entrance to Swez Brasserie. […]

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 […]

Christmas Decor 2015: Pavilion KL

Our first stop for this year’s Christmas decor hunt is Pavilion. It was still work in progress when we were there last weekend. I was at Starhill to get my hair done so I thought why not hop over to have a look at Pavilion’s decor. The outdoor decor. I believe it will be magnificent once it is lighted up come night time.  The boys are attracted to these bears. It’s a mechanical Santa, Bunny […]

Growing brinjals in pot

Both Ethan and Ayden are not a fan of brinjals so I was initially a little hesitant to try planting it. However, I ran out of veges to plant so I bought brinjal seeds to try planting. To my surprise, brinjal plant grows effortlessly and bear fruits so easily.  Compared to the trouble I went through growing sweetcorn in pots, this brinjal came out as a no challenge. If you have never try planting, you […]

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 […]

Growing Sweet Corn in a Pot

The boys love eating corn so I thought why not try growing them? Then I remember that I don’t have a garden for this but it’s okay, I shall try growing corn in pots. I bought seeds to start my sweetcorn project. I planted the entire packet of seeds at once but only two successfully germinate. I transfered those two into individual pots but one sunny evening, Ayden was playing with his ball and accidentally […]

Exclusive Preview of Olivina Residences, TTDI Alam Impian

It has been quite a while since our last property hunt. We’ve been put off by the ever so over-populated areas in the Klang Valley that we decided to venture a little further away from Darling’s work place but nearer to our current home. Our hunt led us to Olivina Residences in TTDI Alam Impian. These days, people do not simply invest in properties. We like to put our money into our preferred township. Olivina […]

Movie time: The Walk

With school being closed from Monday till today and tomorrow too, we have been trapped at home the entire week. Boredom is starting to get into me. Thank goodness today we get to go out for a movie because Nuffnang gave us tickets to the premiere screening of The Walk.   At the movie premiere of The Walk.  Ayden looks sleepy because he is. He woke up much earlier than usual today to follow me to […]

Growing Sweet Potato Leaves in Milk Cartons

Do you remember my homegrown organic spinach in milk cartons? If you don’t, you can read about it in this post -> http://www.submerryn.com/2015/08/homegrown-organic-spinach.html Since I find it so easy to grow spinach in milk cartons, I thought why not try to grow sweet potato leaves in it too since I don’t have any soil on land for them? Actually the idea only came upon me when I saw that the sweet potato I bought has sprouted. […]

Homegrown Organic Spinach in Pots

Okay, so you have seen my homegrown organic okras and grape cherry tomatoes. Today, it’s time for me to introduce my garden of spinach. They are all grown in pots as I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I do not have any land for gardening. Again, I did not purchase any seeds to start my spinach garden. What happened was I bought a bundle of spinach from my favourite grocer shop. Those spinach comes attached with […]

Homegrown Okras in Pots

You’ve seen my homegrown organic grape cherry tomatoes, now let me introduce to you my homegrown organic okras. This is how I grow my okras. Again, I did not purchase the seed for this project. I took dried seeds from my mom’s homegrown okra to start my garden of okra in pots. Okra is very easy to grow as it grows best in hot weather like ours so if you wish to start an urban […]

Inside Out

Inside Out is a computer animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. When I found out Nuffnang is giving away premiere tickets to this, I know I have to get hold of them as I never want to miss anything by Pixar. So there we were last night, in GSC 1Utama to catch the premiere screening of Inside Out. Don’t say I bo jio you okay. I gave out a […]

Growing Our Own Tomatoes

When we moved into our house slightly over a decade ago, I did not like gardening yet so Darling tiled up the entire car porch. Now after having two kids, I find comfort in growing my own greens BUT I don’t have the land anymore for that and has to resort to growing everything in pots. I wasn’t even serious when I started my urban garden. I did not purchase any seeds. In fact, my […]

Pixels Movie

We’ve been watching a lot of movies lately. That is because Nuffnang has been very generous and been holding so many movie premiere screenings the past months or so. Furthermore, most of these screenings are held in 1Utama so it’s a plus point. Yes, the location is very important as we’ll only go for movies in 1Utama, The Curve or around that area. KLCC is a definite NO! The value of the tickets wont be […]

GEMFIVE – Every find a gem

There is a new online store in Malaysia that boasts of exclusive brands that are not readily available in Malaysia. Known as GEMFIVE, it has FIVE core categories ranging from Fashion, Electronics, Beauty & Health, Home & Living to Mum & Kids. I was browsing for some office wear since I have none at home and will need one very soon for an upcoming workshop event. Staying at home with two kids have reduced me […]

Ant-Man

We’ve watched Ant-Man! Woohoo! One of the perks being a Nuffnang blogger is being able to win tickets to their premiere screenings. But now that Ethan is in school, I don’t go for screenings too often as I don’t want him to sleep late and be tired for school the next day. BUT it’s the school holidays (Raya break) now so we are FREE to do anything! The screening is in GSC 1 Utama so […]

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. […]

Raya Decoration – The Curve

It’s that time of the year to be sharing the festive decoration in malls around the Klang Valley. I’ll start with The Curve.  A kampung setting for Hari Raya. I’ve been to Sunway and they too have Kampung setting. I guess most malls will have Kampung house as their decor this year?

Ramadhan dinner preview: Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel

The holy month of Ramadan is commonly perceived to be a time of giving and blessing. It is also said to be the time for reflection and contemplation, for charity and compassion, and for friends and families to turn their thoughts to those less fortunate. For Darling who is in the marketing line, it is time to scout for the best Ramadan dinner spread to reward his business partners. We’ll start with Eastin Hotel’s buka […]

Mother’s Day Celebration at Eastin Hotel

Weeks before Mother’s Day, Darling looked high and low for restaurants or hotels that offer unique Mother’s Day promotions. Most of the eateries offer the usual Mothers Eat For Free kind of promo but we came across Eastin Hotel’s Young Chef Competition in conjunction with Mother’s Day. 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 […]
