Dine Safe at Dorsett Grand Subang : EAT ALL YOU CAN MAKANTHON

My family and I have not dined out since the beginning of MCO as I simply don’t have the confidence in bringing little Ayden out (other than to and from school). I’m also sceptical of places without proper SOP implementation hence the reason I prefer to stay home with the most we have done is to order food delivery to our house.  Two Saturdays ago was a historical day for our family as we finally […]


Fun and Educational DINOSAUR THEMED family board games

How is the New Normal treating you? For me and the boys, we still spend most of our time at home with the only time we are out is to school and back. Spending endless time at home also means having in hand lots and lots of games to keep us occupied. When I say games, I don’t mean online games but physical games that we can play together as a family. These are some […]


Broccoli with Mushroom in Oyster Sauce

On days that Ayden doesn’t have online lessons, he will sometimes help me in the kitchen. Yesterday, he cooked Broccoli with Mushroom in Oyster Sauce.  This is a very simple dish to cook. It takes very little time to prepare and even lesser time to cook. Watch this video to see our Little Chef Ayden dishing it out using our All In One cooker: 


Ayden’s Science Presentation Video

After a month of staying home and about 2 weeks learning from home, the boys are getting comfortable with online learning. Big brother Ethan has to wake up early on certain days for online lessons but the rest of us sleep in till noon 😅 Lil’ Ayden has more homework and video assignments to do compared to Ethan. Today I’m sharing one of his assignment video. He learns Science in Mandarin as he is in […]


Art & Craft Idea: Paper Plate SUN

During these restricted movement times, we are going to spend all our time at home. I was cooking in the kitchen when I heard Ayden talking. I wondered who he was talking to as Ethan is upstairs. Went out to see him recording a tutorial all by himself 😱 Kids these days…. Anyway here it is! This Paper Plate SUN tutorial video is recorded entirely by Ayden. I need to hide my phone after this. […]


All About Cubing

The only thing Ethan talks about these days are cubes, football and drums. So to break into his world, I made myself learn one of his language ie cubing. The other day,  I tried to solve the 3×3 while Ethan tries to solve as many cubes as possible before I am done. Did I manage to solve the 3×3? How many cubes did Ethan manage to solve while I was working on my 3×3? Let’s […]


My Chinese New Year Celebration in Melaka

I had a very fulfilling Chinese New Year celebration back in my hometown this year. We went back on the second day of CNY and I managed to visit almost everyone except my Uncle Benny as we had run out of time and needed to rush back to KL as school reopens quite early for Ethan.  It is the Year of the RAT and since we have 3 rats at home, we celebrate them with […]


Putrade All Suites @ RPGC Ipoh

We were in Ipoh during the year end school holidays recently. This time we stayed at Putrade AllSuites at RPGC Ipoh. Located strategically in Ipoh town yet it remain peaceful, calm and beautifully serene here. A beautiful place with spacious rooms in apartment style concept, it is reasonably priced too. Our 2-bedroom suite was only RM390 (non-member price) per night. We stayed here for two nights. The plus point of staying here is the breath […]


Personalized Tees for my Drummer Boys

Remember I printed some customized caps for both my drummer boys back in September last year? Well, they are very happy with their caps and are now requesting for more. They asked me if they can have personalised tees to go with their caps. Since I am pretty happy with those caps we got from Printcious , I decided to print a drummer’s tee for the boys. The whole process was very easy. I just […]


The Rainbow Skywalk and Observatory Deck, THE TOP @ Komtar, Penang

We were in Penang during the recent school holidays and made it a point to challenge ourselves at THE TOP Rainbow Skywalk this time around. We had always wanted to experience this from the first time we visited THE TOP back in 2017 but Ayden was a little too young to enjoy the walk hence we decided to wait a little longer. Fast forward to two years later, here we are at the top, 816 […]


Our Winter Solstice Celebration

We went back to my mom’s place last weekend to help her “gelek Kueh Ee”. I go back hometown at least once a month but it has been ages since I last went back specially for this as we always avoided going back to Melaka during this time of the year due to the horrendous traffic jam. Somehow this year we decided to just brave the jam and make it home after receiving this picture […]


Drummer Ethan and Drummer Ayden’s LIVE performance at Sunway Giza Mall

Sunway Giza Mall celebrated its 10th Anniversary on Saturday and both the boys were invited to perform in collaboration with United Piano Sunway Giza.  Both Ethan and Ayden performed two songs each. Let me share some photos first.  The boys with their drum teacher, Teacher Mazlan.  Now let’s watch their performances videos: Ayden’s performance of the first song – HANDS CLAP Ethan’s performance of the first song – JUST GIVE ME A REASON Ayden’s performance […]


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? Watch the video here: 


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 […]

Holiday Inn Melaka | Kids’ Suite

A reader recently asked if I know of any hotels in Melaka suitable for families with young children as she is planning a trip to this historical city in the third quarter of this year. Immediately I shared with her the video of our recent stay in the Kids’ Suite, Holiday Inn Melaka. This Kids’ Suite will definitely keep the little ones happy and occupied with the double-decker bed as well as play area in […]


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 […]


Custom made DRUMMER caps for my Drummer boys

Most of my readers know both my boys are avid drummers as I regularly share videos of their drum covers. I even created a Youtube playlist especially for all their drum covers so it will be easier to follow their updates. You can track their updates here -> Drum Covers They are slowly but surely upgrading their drum set from the basic 5-piece set to an elaborate set of their dreams. I wanted to contribute […]


The boys’ first time attending a rock concert

On the 1st of August, Ethan got a chance of a lifetime to perform in front of his favourite rock band Mad August during the press conference for their upcoming concert. I’ve blogged about it here.  Fast forward to 30 August, I brought the boys to attend that said concert. This is Ethan and Ayden’s first time attending a concert and they are pretty excited about it. We got rock zone tickets; a free-standing […]

Ayden named his masterpiece – Chocolate Oreo Burger Cake HAPPY BIRTHDAY AYDEN Big brother Ethan could not join us as he was in school Ayden and his class teacher With the boys With the girls Singing the birthday song So adorable to see these […]


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 […]


FREE Playspace for children: PlayTime Kids @ 1 Utama

FREE PLAYGROUND FOR KIDS IN 1 UTAMA SHOPPING MALL Several malls in the Klang Valley have implemented FREE play space for children. 1 Utama Shopping Mall is one of them. Situated on the Ground Floor, it is in the same wing as FlowRider KL and AirRider KL. It is non-air conditioned though with several fans fixed to the walls so do bring a change of clothes as kids can get pretty sweaty after a good […]

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 […]
