Ayam oh Ayam

We were back in my in-law’s place during the recent Chinese New Year break. There wasn’t much to do over there but the boys got the opportunity to be Kampung boys. One of the activity Ayden loves the most is playing with the chicks (as in ANAK AYAMs). Disclaimer: No AYAMS were hurt in the making of this blog post. My sister-in-law was attacked by the mother hen though while she was taking this chick away from […]

Chinese New Year OOTD

I am back! Am finally home with fast internet connection! *Dusting off cobwebs* I’ve not updated my blog for a week now because the internet connection in both my in-law’s and my parent’s place are so lagging it will take me hours just to post a proper blog post so I decided to take a break completely. I was also too occupied catching up on life offline that it does not even matter :D There are […]

Ayden’s First Appearance in the Newspaper

Ayden finally got his small break and appeared in the newspaper together with the Daddy and big brother Ethan – The Star Metro Central on the 2 February 2016 to be exact. The article doesn’t have anything to do with him though :P We were having a Chinese New Year Lou Sang dinner preview at Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur and were tossing to prosperity when the photographer caught this shot. I was no […]

Ayden’s First Time Flying

Last Saturday was Ayden’s first time flying. We flew to Singapore. We took Firefly from Subang to Singapore and return with Malaysia Airlines to KLIA. I prefer flying from Subang airport. It’s nearer to our house. We do not need to waste too much time travelling on the road. More over, the cab fee is definitely cheaper but we had no choice, we had to take MH home as there are no more flights from […]

Playing in the rain

Rain drops keep falling on my head… Yesterday, I brought the boys to the playground in the evening. It was quite a gloomy evening but it was not raining yet so I decided to go ahead and bring them over. We managed to spend over an hour there when the sky suddenly opened up and pours.  Ethan, Ayden and I quickly ran home but when we reached home, Ayden did not want to go inside. […]

LEGO day

While most kids have gone back to school, Ethan was still having an additional day off on Thursday as the school was being very generous with the festive holidays. Bored at home, I took both the boys out to the mall. The first thing we saw was LEGO. There is some kind of LEGO exhibition and activities going on and since the boys are so much into building blocks lately, this got their attention.  LEGO […]

Halloween Footprint Ghost for Kids

Halloween is just a couple of days away. Though Ayden is still clueless about what Halloween is all about, it doesn’t stop us from making a simple ghost artwork for fun.  I guided him to trace the outline of his foot on a piece of white paper.  Happy ghosts come in twos. He said they are very cute.  I cut the ghosts out for him to be used as bookmarks but he rather play with […]

BeeBop Circus – Learn Through Play

I used to not be in favour of indoor kids’ gym simply because I prefer my kids to sweat it out in open-air playgrounds with abundance of fresh air. Unfortunately this year, we are affected badly by the haze. I know the haze is an annual recurring issue but we are experiencing the worst haze ever this time around with schools being closed and kids are advised to stay indoors. But how long can we […]

Final Exam is OVER!

Ethan’s final exam is OVER! That means we are officially MERDEKA for the year. Although Ethan does his revision on his own most of the time, it does take a great teamwork to get him through the exam period because if you know us well, you’ll know that we are seldom at home. And then last minute when it is closer to exam time, I’ll rush Ethan to do his revision. He’ll have to cover the […]

Dressing up mannequin, the horror!

When Ayden was younger, he got very afraid of mannequins in the malls as they usually come without eyes, nose, mouth and all. Some even come without a head! LoL! Imagine his horror of seeing a headless person lah. Sometimes he sees mannequins without legs and that scares the heck out of him too.  Only recently he started to accept mannequins as they are; be it without a head, arms, legs or any other body […]

Weaning Off Breastfeeding

This week has been an emotional rollercoaster. I’m over-joyed because Ayden is fully diaperless at home and also at the playground. There has been no accident for the entire week. He is able to inform me should he need to take a leak or a dump. He even suggested to go shopping without his diapers but I am not ready for that. I can’t imagine the stress of running to the loo every single hour. […]

Going Diaperless

At 25 months old, Ayden is finally diaperless at home. It happenend just like that. I was folding Ethan’s old clothes to keep away when I saw his underwear and joked with Ayden if he wants to wear it. Surprisingly, he said YES so I washed it and let it dry. The next day, I asked Ayden again if he really wants to wear the underwear and he said YES. So I stripped him off […]

Towing a Roller Container

We were driving along aimlessly after dinner several nights ago when we spotted a tow truck getting ready to tow a roller container. Ethan and Ayden are ardent fans of vehicles and they requested for the Daddy to stop so they can see how it is done. It is actually my first time witnessing this too and I must admit I got as excited as the kids :D A roller container is a container mainly […]

One of those bad days…

We brought Ayden to his weekly gym class at BeeBop Circus as usual last Saturday evening. The difference was we woke him up early and was out of the house since morning (as I had some errands to run) and headed directly to the gym at 5pm without him getting a proper nap. I thought he’ll be okay as he has been looking forward to attend this once a week class all week especially with […]

Shopping with the boys

These days, it is a challenge shopping with the boys. I don’t remember Ethan being this rascal when he was two but put him and little bro Ayden together, all hell breaks loose! A 20 minute grocery shopping can be really ‘entertaining’ for them but tiring for me.  They both will quickly grab a basket each.  And push it around the alley. Ayden is cheekier. Sometimes he’ll stop at something he fancies and just grab […]

Finally in a car seat again

I’ve been a bad mother. When Ayden was born, I made sure to put him in his car seat whenever we are travelling in the car. We used big bro Ethan’s car seat as it was still in good condition then. After some time (several months), the car seat cover (the sponge) started to tear off. We couldn’t find a replacement for the cover and thought of getting a new seat but Ayden started to […]

Ayden is TWO!

Every time on a kid’s birthday, the mother will start with the saying, “It feels just like yesterday… “ Indeed it feels just like yesterday we welcomed Ayden into this world on Merdeka Day. My Merdeka baby Ayden, born on the 31 August 2013, 3 weeks earlier than his estimated delivery date. A year ago he cut his very first cake. Big brother Ethan decided the theme and decor for Ayden’s birthday bash. Today, he […]

Why do people insists on dressing siblings the same?

I don’t have a daughter. If I do, I am sure to dress her the same as me from time to time. It would be fun to have a mini me parading the same outfit as mine. But yeah, I don’t have a daughter. So what I did was: I dressed the father and son similar. This was before we have Ayden. I have yet to get a similar outfit for all three of them.  […]

The little rascal

Remember back in April I was complaining regarding Ayden drawing on the walls, cabinets, floor and all? *recycle pic* I am glad that was only temporary and lasted only a couple of days. These days, he still likes to scribble a lot but at least he does it on papers.  His latest craze is crayons. Look at his choice of colour. He likes purple and orange a lot.  This is him coloring during my tuition […]

Feeding Ayam Kampung

We went back to my in-law’s place last Sunday and Ayden requested to feed the chickens. To him it’s like a trip to a petting zoo. I used to get very annoyed with these chickens I tell you. It’s not so much the chickens that I hate but their droppings. They are every where and the worst is when you stepped on it before entering the car.  But now with kids, I tend to mellow […]

Road Safety, Traffic Rules for Kids

The rainy season is here again. In fact, it has been raining a lot this year don’t you think so? I have to wake up early to do my laundry or they won’t be able to dry on time as it always rains in the evenings. Ayden and I are so bored being ‘prisoners’ at home not being able to go to the playground that I finally signed him up for an indoor gym package. […]

Vandalism

We’ve been staying here from the moment they completed this housing project until today. Been over a decade I think. Ethan frequent the playground often when he was younger. It was nicer back then. These days it is not so nice anymore. Most of the equipments in the playground has fallen victims to vandalism. Poor Ayden. He can’t really enjoy the playground as much as Ethan had.  See? His head pops out from the slide like […]

Toilet Paper Roll Apple Tree

Ayden is turning two next month. That means he is ready for art and craft activities with me. Today, we made an apple tree using toilet paper roll and coloured crepe paper.  First, I get Ayden to paint the toilet paper roll with brown tempera paste.  He only needs to paint half of the toilet paper roll as we’ll be using only half. I did not cut it first because it is easier for him […]

How to Identify a Breastfeeding Toddler

You know a toddler is still breastfeeding (or was breastfed) when the first thing that comes out of his mouth when you bring him to the lingerie department is ….. Read on. I needed to buy a new nursing bra or maybe just a new bra so I handed the boys over to Darling and went to the lingerie department alone. Ayden kept asking for me so Darling brought him over but the moment he […]

Brothers

Everyday after Ethan leave home for school, I’ll keep Ayden entertained by getting him to help out in the garden, bake a cake, play and going to the playground in the evening. After all that he’ll take his shower and automatically wait at the door for big brother Ethan to come home.  From the moment Ethan walks through that door, Ayden will stick to him like magnet.  He’ll also sit next to Ethan when the […]
