Drummer Ethan’s dream come true: Meeting Mad August

1st August 2019 This date will forever be embedded in Ethan’s memory as this is the day he got to meet his idols – the members of the awesome rock band Mad August in person. When I posted some pictures on my FB yesterday, a friend commented, “They are like the Malaysia version of Beyond now” and I must agree with him.  So not only Ethan got to meet them, he also had the privilege […]

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

It’s my favourite indulgence. If you know me well, you’ll know that I watch what I eat. I don’t eat sugary stuffs. I don’t drink sodas. I am not even bothered by the current bubble tea craze.  BUT when it comes to durians, I have no restrictions whatsoever. I am crazy over durians. 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 […]

Flying with Children | Tips and Tricks to make it work

You see people flying so much, you’d think it’s fun. Then the day comes when it’s your turn to fly and you get all excited and ready to go. But there is one problem. You are not flying solo. You have young children flying together. The kids are equally excited to fly with you. They want to experience the joy of travel and experience for real what they only see in pictures prior to this.

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 […]

Our Mother’s Day Lunch

It was Mother’s Day weekend. Ethan had just completed his mid term exam so we get to go back Melaka to celebrate with my parents.  We brought my parents out for lunch on Sunday at their favourite place, TWS. My parents love the food here and they frequent this place often but it is the first for me and the boys.  My parent’s regular drink here is the large mug of carrot milk. When I […]

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 […]

Bonding with Hot Wheels

Both Ethan and Ayden are huge fans of Hot Wheels and have countless race tracks in their collection to date. The neighbourhood kids will come over to our house (with their own Hot Wheels cars) just to race on those tracks.  I like to join the boys too because I find it interesting to try overcome each obstacles. It isn’t as simple as it seems. Every different cars, tracks and obstacles require various calculation and […]

Drum with Ayden: 2018 Trinity Rock & Pop Drums Grade 3

I just realised I did not update Ayden’s drum progress since October last year. We suddenly got busy closer to the year end and it carried on into the new year that I totally missed updating Ayden’s journey in Grade 2. He has since been upgraded to Grade 3 now. Ayden learned several songs from Grade 3 already but I only managed to record him playing two songs at the moment. I think we are […]

He has grown so much under this teacher’s guidance and is now comfortable playing commercial songs.  Ethan’s school teacher requested for him to cover the song FADED by Alan Walker so here it is: Do you have any song you want to see Ethan cover? Do let us know […]

Learning the drums at 41 years old | Mama RockStar wannabe

Ayden is finally in preschool this year. This means I have 4 hours of daily free time on weekdays. I did not feel much change in my routine earlier this year as I was busy rushing to complete customers’ orders of my Chinese New Year cookies. Reality sank in after the Chinese New Year holidays when both the boys returned to school. I was left with FOUR hours of FREEDOM a day by myself. FOUR […]

Cook with Ayden: Stir Fried Shimeiji Mushroom with Carrots

Little Ayden attends preschool in the afternoon session this year. That means I have to cook a quick yet wholesome lunch for him before he heads to school. I usually have less than an hour to dish out a complete meal so whatever is quick works best.  Ayden loves mushrooms. Shimeiji mushrooms is one of his favourite. There are many ways to cook this mushroom but I always stick to this one on week days […]

All About Myself

The kindergarten Ayden goes to has thematic learning whereby they focused on one particular theme for the entire month. The theme for February is All About Myself and the first thing he learned was how a person is ‘created’. His teacher told stories about how Daddies will eject many swimming champions that look like tadpoles yet are not really tadpoles and how they raced with all their might to reach the ‘egg’ from the Mommies.
