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 […]


When Kids Blog

With a blink of an eye, the long weekend is over. Can’t believe how tiring it is to spend time with two active boys these days. It is either age is catching up with me or the boys are getting tougher. Out of the four off days, we get to spend one day at home peacefully with no agenda planned as the daddy needed to attend to some matters with our new tenant. As I […]


Interior Design Ideas: Tropicana Cyperus Serviced Residences

Several weeks ago, we visited the show units for Tropicana Cyperus Serviced Residences. If we thought the 9 Bukit Utama Condo is expensive, this Cyperus is even dearer with double the price per square feet. Priced around RM1.2K per square feet, I’ll pay through my nose and will need my kids to continue paying it till old age >_< Anyway, let’s take a look at the interior design ideas for their units. There are 3 […]


Ethan, Have You Eaten?

Every where Ethan goes, people will be asking him, “Ethan, have you eaten?”. One fine day, Ethan told his Dad that when he was younger, he did not understand what that means. He thought people were always asking, “Ethan, have you Ethan?” and to him, that made no sense. Only recently did he finally get what people meant when they asked him, “Ethan, have you eaten?” His conversation with his Dad prompted him to start […]


SpongeBob SquarePants in Sunway

Has been having lack of sleep for the third consecutive night. Ayden kept me up all night. If I go to Zoo Negara now, they’ll keep me in their air-conditioned enclosure and you’ll have to pay premium price to see me there #PandaEyes. So first thing we did today was to bring Ayden to the Paed to check what’s up with him. Thank goodness nothing to be alarmed off.  He is having some phlegm issues but the […]


Interior Design Ideas: 9 Bukit Utama Condo

How was your Saturday? We visited a show unit today at 9 BU because you know, we just felt like buying something >_< So yeah, let’s go ‘shopping’. Gulp. I’ve never seen such spacious condo before. This unit is 2,522 sq ft. It has a huge balcony. Ethan told me he wants to place his drum set there. Dream on, boy. Keep on dreaming…  Another view. I can imagine myself living in here weh..  The […]


CNY Mall decoration: Pavilion

I used to wonder why people frequent the malls on the first day of a festival. Don’t they have relatives to visit? Don’t their relatives visit their home?  And then today, on the first day of Chinese New Year of the Goat, I ended up in Pavilion. We were in Seremban at my in-law’s house when my sister-in-law suggested for us to go to Pavilion. The reason being that my parents-in-law doesn’t go KL often […]


CNY Mall decoration: The Curve

The Curve’s Chinese New Year decor this year is an elaborate floating fishing village.  View from the first floor.  With real fish swimming around, it truly feels like a fishing village. I feel like catching those tilapia. Would have made a very delicious steamed fish dinner :P It is really a fishing village comes to live here. My kids have never been to a real floating village before and this made quite an impression to […]


Door Insulating DIY

Since Darling was bitten by a centipede in our bedroom a couple of nights ago, I’ve been a little paranoid. I can’t sleep at night fearing another creepy crawly might climb up our bed. So when we went shopping today the first place I go is to Daiso to look for insulating tape for doors.  Thank goodness they have lots of it. RM5 for each strip of door insulating tape. I bought two first as […]


Tai Zi Heen CNY Menu

Chinese New Year is exactly a week away. As we get busy preparing to celebrate the arrival of the Goat, we also had the opportunity to dine in true oriental tradition at Tai Zi Heen, KL. The Submerryn family at Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur We were treated to a bounty of traditional reunion feasts of pork-free Cantonese fare. Toss to good fortune; the auspicious festive menu begin with the tossing of […]


Heart Shaped Red Traffic Light

So there we were at the traffic light at 1 Utama yesterday evening when Darling spotted this heart shaped red light.  I told him a couple of days earlier that these red hearts has been spotted around the Klang Valley recently but he just brushed me off saying it must be some prank or something until he sees it with his own eyes and starts to wonder. I googled for more info and that’s when […]


Auspicious CNY Menus @ Ming Palace, Corus Hotel KL

One of the great ways to begin the celebration of the Lunar New Year is by indulging in hearty meals and symbolic dishes representing good luck, prosperity and health with family and friends. The Submerryn family was at Ming Palace, Corus Hotel KL recently to toss to their scrumptious Lou Sang set menu. Salmon Fish Yee Sang with Dragon Fruits and Pine Seed (RM98++ Half Portion / RM128++ Whole Portion) The best part of Lou […]


Xenri D’River View Chinese New Year Lou Sang

Remember we had dinner at Xenri not too long ago? We saw that their Yee Sang set will be up soon so I quickly gathered my best pals to try it out. The thing about Lou Sang is the more the merrier and merry we were that fine afternoon as there were 10 of us excited to try out their luxurious Yee Sang. A row of beautiful bamboos outside Xenri. If you ever have trouble finding […]


CNY mall decoration: 1 Utama

Have you seen 1 Utama’s Chinese New Year decor this  year? I took a peek down and saw these… God of Prosperity and friends? I am only familiar with Cai Shen (财神) but not his friends but it’s okay because this decor is so much better than their shocking cardboard Christmas decor last year. I was even afraid to take a look at their CNY decor initially for fear that it might be worse than […]


Paper Quilling Chinese New Year Card

We don’t usually go to Paradigm Mall but several weeks ago we did to meet up with friends. After out meet up, we thought of walking around for a while when we passed by Popular Bookstore and saw that they are giving a free art and craft session for kids but there was not even a single kid keen to participate. Why? What is happening to kids these days? Art and crafts don’t fancy them […]


CNY mall decoration: Sunway Pyramid

Sunway Pyramid is always one of the earliest to put up their festive decoration. It is a fluffy Chinese New Year over at Sunway Pyramid this year.  Themed “Cheery Woolly Spring”, the mall is dotted with adorable fluffy sheep. Ethan and Ayden went crazy over those super cute and colourful sheep of various sizes. Ayden mimicking the “Boy Who Cried Wolf”, his favourite bedtime story :D OK lah their decor. Kids were happy. It was like a […]

Si Chuan Dou Hua Chinese New Year menu

Chinese New Year is less than a month away. Where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday we welcomed 2015 and now it’s almost CNY already? My family was invited to a CNY feast at Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurant, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur last Thursday. It was our first Chinese New Year lou sang for the year so I made sure we dressed up for it. I was extremely happy to still be able to fit […]


The Shepherdoo’s Valentine’s Day Menu

The Shepherdoo Restaurant & Lounge, Sky Park @ One City Priced at RM168/per couple, we were served the following: Starter (2 sets) Smoked Duck Breast Salad with Caramelized Citrus Dressing We started our Valentine’s meal with this tangy, simple yet refreshing salad […]


DIY: How to Restore Tile Grout

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know how much I hated my floor tiles. One of my biggest regret was not replacing them before we shifted in. Now, it will be too much of a hassle to get them replaced especially with little Ayden around. Late last year during my birthday, we did not do anything fancy but spent the entire evening walking in a DIY store at IPC. I’ve forgotten the name of […]


Ang Pow Fish Lantern

I’ve got many requests for this Ang Pow Fish Lantern. I’m not too sure why when there are many more other beautiful lanterns that we can do. Maybe because it is a fish and Chinese people like fish? Makes sense? No? Nevermind. Whatever the reason, it is very simple to make this. So fish it is.  Ang Pow Fish Lantern You will need 18 ang pow wrappers for this. Ang means red. You do not necessarily […]


Chinese New Year Angpow Lantern

It’s time to dig out your ang pow packets and make Chinese New Year decorations again because before you know it, Chinese New Year will appear right in front of you :) Though I’ve always used only angpow packets for my decorations, today’s decor requires one additional item though. We’ll need toilet paper rolls to make this lantern.  Ang pow lantern I used big toilet paper rolls instead of the normal small ones as this […]

A Family Christmas Affair, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur

Christmas is the season of joy where everyone gets to spend quality time together. This year, we experienced “A Family Christmas Affair” with an exciting line-up of dining activities at Chatz Brasserie, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur. Beautifully lit-up reindeers, sleigh and Christmas tree at the hotel lobby. We feasted on the traditional roasted turkey with chestnut stuffing. The must-haves on every Christmas, roasted turkey. This year, the chef has generously added in the rich in flavour […]
