Swimming With A Float Neck Ring In A Public Pool

Hello! How are you all doing? How was your long weekend? As for us, we spent the evenings swimming away in the pool. When I was pregnant with Ayden, I swam at least once a week. I can feel Ayden kicking me each time I went for a dip. I sensed then that he loves water and true enough, this boy of mine loves swimming and splashing. His first swim was when he was 3 […]

Thistle Port Dickson

We went to Port Dickson again last weekend. This time to celebrate Ethan’s birthday. With Ayden still young, turning 11 month old this month end, we do not even bother to travel anywhere far as it will be very tiring for US as well as Ayden himself. Therefore when Darling told Ethan that he can pick a place to go for his birthday, Darling also reminded him that he is only allowed to choose a […]

Fairy Tale Puppy Love

We went for dinner with some friends last night at LINK, Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar and the kids hit it off wonderfully. Well, it was not their first time meeting each other. They were already friends way back in 2012 but they were just young children then. Ethan and Samantha during our holiday in Johor back in 2012. Read about our stay together here. Fast forward to the present, they are big boy and girl […]

Malaysia Giant Pandas experience

So the much anticipated moment is here. We can now visit those pandas in the zoo as the Giant Panda Conservation Centre (GPCC) is finally open to the public. It will cost RM50 to view the giant pandas. The two giant pandas have been given new names by Malaysians to welcome them to their home for the next 10 years. Fu Wa, the male panda, is now called Xing Xing which means Prosperity, while female panda Feng Yi is […]

Three’s a Crowd

Ayden attended a birthday party last Saturday. While playing with these two cuties he got a little thirsty…  Needless to say, he did not get that drink after all :P

FUN Snow Sleds @ 1 Utama

We were in 1 Utama today and stumbled upon a FROZEN area much to our surprise. It’s not Christmas yet but it’s snowing in 1 Utama! “Let It Go… Let It Go!” Haha.. Yep! I heard children singing that famous soundtrack from Frozen! What surprised us was the snow sledding activity. It looks like so much FUN and Ethan pestered me to go check if he can try it and sure enough, he CAN! Not only […]

Attention Seeking Baby

Ayden is 9 months old. He is more independent now. I can leave him in his cot while I go to the bathroom or kitchen and he’ll play on his own. He isn’t like this before. Previously he was very attention seeking. He’ll wail his lungs out if I leave him in the cot and disappear from his sight. He made me run back to him immediately to check if he’s alright but after some […]

Growing Longer Legs : Genetics and Growth

For every child born, his/her height is determined primarily by genetic factors. Doubling a child’s height at age two is a close predictor to estimate the child’s height as an adult as a child normally reaches half of his or her adult height by that time. If that is the case, Ethan might not grow into a tall, dark and handsome young man. As it is now at almost 7 years old, he is already lagging behind when it […]

School Holidays

It’s the school holidays and gawd knows what Ethan is up to! That boy is in that super imaginative stage and I MUST keep an eye on him all the time! He’s so into Super Heroes that I dont feel safe leaving him on his own. I have a friend who lost his son because that innocent boy jumped down from his apartment thinking he is Superman and he can fly. I can never get […]

Hand Foot Mouth Disease – The Double Dose

It was Sunday morning. We needed to be on location for a recording session at 8.30am so my plan was to wake up at 7am to get the kids and my make-up ready but at 5am, Ayden woke up crying. I thought he wanted milk so I just latched him on with my eyes still close. But he did not want milk. He was gagging and that jolted me wide awake. I held him up […]

Ayden’s 8 months picture journey

With a blink of an eye, little Ayden is 8 months old already. It feels like just yesterday he popped out unexpectedly on Merdeka Day. Surprisingly, we are all coping pretty well with his arrival. I still have time to blog! I thought with his arrival, my blog will be gone and forgotten but no, it is still surviving *pops confetti* Here’s a picture journey of him from newborn to the present at 8 months […]

Nipple Confusion: REAL vs FAKE

When it comes to titty (either of two soft fleshy milk-secreting glandular organs on the chest of a woman) you just cant fool them. They know the real ones from the many ‘commercialised’ ones out there. I gave Ayden a new toy to play with yesterday and he suckled on it thinking they are my titties but he soon came to his senses…

Eating Out for Baby

Since Ayden started solid about a month ago, I never cook and bring his food out when we are out of the house. I just fed him some baby biscuits while we are eating and he is good. But last weekend I did. He is having such good appetite these days that when we eat, he’ll lick his lips hoping to be fed too. So for the very first time last Saturday, I brought his […]

Fuss free baby porridge recipes

Ayden is 7 1/2 months now and is having the time of his life enjoying solid food. I started him on solid quite late at 6 1/2 months. He had mainly fruit purees for 2 weeks before I ‘upgraded’ him to porridge. I use all the ingredients that he has eaten in the past 2 weeks (except meat and anchovies) so that I know he won’t have any allergy reaction to them. Boiling porridge for […]

Synchronizing the boys’ sleeping hours

One of my biggest achievements since the arrival of Ayden is synchronizing the sleeping hours of both Ethan and Ayden at night. It was tough the first couple of months. Ethan would go to bed by 9pm while Ayden doesn’t sleep until at least 2-3am. Back then Darling blamed Ayden’s odd sleeping hours on my staying up late blogging while I was pregnant with Ayden because with Ethan, I had a very good habit of […]

Shark Attack

We were in H&M looking for Ayden’s sleepwear. Urm, Darling was the one looking actually. I was busy carrying Ayden and making sure he is not grabbing anything in his sight. This boy is a pro grabber now. He’ll grab anything that gets in his way. Suddenly… “Ohai! I iz SHARK. Nice to meet you.” “Boo! It’s ME la Daddy! Did I scare ya? Huh? Did I? Did I?” “What do you mean I’m not […]

Hand and Footprint Sun

It’s the school holidays and that means having Ethan at home all day, all night, all week :D To keep him occupied, we did an artwork yesterday. We did a Hand and Footprint Sun. We used Ayden’s hand and footprint for our art. Ethan tracing Ayden’s handprint.  He then traced Ayden’s foot. Ayden admiring his footprint. I get Ethan to cut out the hand and footprints. And paste them. Finally, he drew a pair of […]

Ayden’s First Meeting

I’m a full time SAHM/Mommy Blogger. A friend once asked me what SAHM means. If you don’t already know, SAHM is the acronym for Superbly Attractive Hot Mom. Yep, that’s me! *handing out plastic bags for you to puke into* SAHM is a job with NO SALARY. Blogging helps me earn some pocket money through advertorials. Some ad jobs come easy as in I can just do it at home without lifting my butt and woolah […]

When Mommy Is the Barber

Just like with Ethan, I cut Ayden’s hair too. I started cutting Ethan’s hair since he was 3 months onwards but with Ayden I started really early. I trimmed his hair shortly after fullmoon. I used the exact same yellow Bumboo chair that Ethan used for Ayden now. Ayden however, unlike Ethan, is more difficult to handle. Ethan will sit still and quietly let me cut his hair but Ayden is terrible! He refused to […]

Choosing the Right Book for Babies

When it comes to books for babies, remember this ONE rule – wipeable. I always get glossy wipe clean books for babies. The reason being they won’t easily tear or clump when soaked with baby’s saliva and at the end of the day we can easily wipe them clean and keep them away.  I have this old book of Ethan’s that is not a wipe clean book. It’s a touch and feel book so I […]

How To Fold The Korean Lamb Head Towel (Jjimjilbang)

I tell you one thing. When I first saw a friend folding this towel for her baby, I have no idea that this is the famous lamb head towels that you see in Korean drama series. My idea of Korea is Psy’s Gangnam Style. That’s it. Only that. I’m not a K-pop fan or anything so you can understand my lack of intelligence in regards to that part of the world. But now I understand […]

Caterpillar Joke

Ayden has a hand-me-down friend, a caterpillar from big brother Ethan. They are not exactly the best buddies out there as the caterpillar doesn’t laugh at his jokes… And now we all know why :P

First encounter with a …

We were at my parent’s place. While relaxing under the shady mango tree, Ayden saw a furry creature. I’ll let Ayden tell you the rest of the story … “So I was sitting on Grandma’s lap when this huge thing came to me. It definitely did not look like any of Mommy’s relative. It has two long ears on its head and a very funny looking face. It walks funny too. It’s like as if […]
