Spreading Happiness

Sometime early this month, our little Ayden hits the streets in a mission to bring smiles to random strangers. We were pleasantly surprised to see how willing these beautiful strangers are to spend a couple of minutes from their busy life to smile and just be happy ❤️ Would you stop and allow Ayden to take a wefie with you if he approached you?

Ayden’s Graduation Dance Performance

With a blink of an eye, Ayden graduated from preschool last Sunday. If you have been following our journey, you’d know that I homeschooled both Ethan and Ayden during their preschool years. With big brother Ethan, I home-schooled him until he is 6 years old then panicked when someone told me that without a preschool graduation cert he won’t be accepted into primary school. So we quickly looked for a preschool for him but by […]

The boys’ first ice skating experience

Last week, schools were suddenly closed due to the haze. With 3 days off and nothing to do, Ethan’s friends planned an outing to go ice skating. His friends are all pro-skaters while both my boys have never skated but are keen to learn. So off to the ice skating rink they went. They took advantage of the early bird special whereby if you enter before noon, you’ll get RM5 off the ticket price. We […]

Ayden the Magician: Cups & Balls Magic Trick

Ayden’s kindy is holding a talent show next week. The kids are given a chance to showcase their talent. They can choose to sing, tell a story or any other hidden talent that they have.  Ayden is not going to play the drums as the school doesn’t have a drum set and it will be too much of a hassle to transport a set there. He chose to perform a magic trick. And the best […]

Our Little Drummer Boys

Last Sunday (25/8/2019) was a very memorable day for our drummer boys as they both get to perform LIVE in a mall in the Klang Valley. Big brother Ethan is used to performing as he is the school’s drummer so I am not too worried for him. I was more concerned for little Ayden as this is only his second time performing for a crowd yet he nailed it effortlessly. The Daddy and I are […]

Ethan is 12!

Time flies. My first born turned 12 yesterday. I remember his every birthdays like it was just yesterday. 12 years with him yet I still can’t get it right at times. Parenting is hard. I never know if the decision we make is correct or not yet we still have to do it. It is a journey of trials and errors but I am glad together, we are usually able to overcome the obstacles blocking […]

Durian Oh Durian

I can eat it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner *burp* Last month I was so craving for durians that I pestered Darling […]

Instill The Love of Reading In Your Child

How do you guide your child to master languages other than their mother tongue? For me, I expose my boys to stories as well as videos. I can’t help them with Mandarin so I send them to enrichment classes but I personally guide them to read, write and speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I instill the love of reading in the boys from the very beginning when they were young. I make bedtime stories interesting. I […]

Movie Time: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Hello! Wow, I’ve not updated my blog for quite some time now. I’ve been busy sorting pictures to be printed on our photobooks. You see, the thing about digital pictures is I got lazy to print them out and has been keeping them in my hard drive for ages. The last we printed anything was when Ethan was a year old. But I do have some of the boys’ current pictures that I printed myself […]

Impiana Resort Patong Phuket | Beach Front Resort in Patong

“IF WE WERE MEANT TO STAY IN ONE PLACE, WE’D HAVE ROOTS INSTEAD OF FEET”, Rachel Wolchin once said.

We stayed at Impiana Resort Patong Phuket, one of the only 3 beachfront resorts at Patong beach, the most famous beach in Phuket. Patong is a bustling town with its wide variety of […]

NEUTRA Reflexology & Spa

We’ve had a crazily hectic month with the house repainting and re-roofing works and some minor renovation going on at home. I bought the Bronze Pack earlier this year and quickly arranged for a well-deserving pampering session for our family to destress and just to get away from it all; the noise, the mess… We took a drive to Lucky Garden Bangsar to this venue: NEUTRA Reflexology & Spa #2 Lorong Ara Kiri Dua Lucky […]
