Our Earth Hour

Where were you and what did you do during the recent Earth Hour? As for me, we were at Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh Malacca. Awesome place! We had dinner at Nusantara with our blogger friends. At 8.30pm sharp, Philea turned off all non-essential lights and we dined in ‘darkness’. Romantic to the max! :D Buffet spread illuminated by candle lights They even organised an interesting activity to fill up the entire one hour. […]

In honour of someone who is fighting cancer, post this for at least […]

Understanding Nuffnang to earn with Nuffnang

Why is it that each time I go for a blogger’s meet up, the first thing they ask me (after all the formalities) is, “How do you earn with Nuffnang?” I seriously think that this question is best forwarded to Nuffnang’s helpdesk as they are the right person to answer. Who am I to even attempt answering that question, right? But I do have my two cents worth though. Wanna know? Read on. Before you […]

I need a bigger car!

I don’t know how my Dad did it. He used to squeeze all five of us into his sedan (with pillows, bolsters and all) and drove us to some land far, far away and we survived the trip! He is still doing it now though this time I am rarely in his car anymore. I have my own family of 3 now and already we are finding it almost impossible to travel from point A […]

Smaland, The Magic Forest

I’ve been eyeing IKEA’s Smaland even before I had Ethan. I have always wanted to let Ethan play there but never have the courage to let him go mainly because I won’t be allowed to enter with him. A couple of weeks ago a sudden gust of courage swept over me. I brought Ethan to Smaland and asked him if he wants to enter. Of course he answered YES! I was worried as he will […]

Night Glow – 2nd Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2010

First time we attended the Night Glow was during the 1st Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta on the 22 March 2009. Back then, we had ‘special’ passes to enter the area for photography purposes. This year, due to miscalculated ‘planning’ we went there empty handed and had to settle photographing it from outside, together with the public and the crowd. All throughout the Night Glow, the marching band from Falun Dafa made their rounds […]

Peranakan (Baba Nyonya Wedding)

When I got married, I did not do it the Peranakan style. I almost did not do it the Chinese style too. I did not wear that RED outfit (what is that call again?). I wore an English wedding gown. Mat Salleh celup lah kata kan… People like me are the ones that should be thrown far far away for not following custom. Anyway, all ME aside, my cousin Cherylene married her sweetheart Eddie the […]
