Smaland, The Magic Forest

I’ve been eyeing IKEA’s Smaland even before I had Ethan. I have always wanted to let Ethan play there but never have the courage to let him go mainly because I won’t be allowed to enter with him. A couple of weeks ago a sudden gust of courage swept over me. I brought Ethan to Smaland and asked him if he wants to enter. Of course he answered YES! I was worried as he will […]

Red Packet Star lantern

I’m sorry for the late blog entries of the many ang pow lanterns I’ve done. Many of you are already pestering me! *I know time is running out and CNY is just around the corner* But I’ve just been too busy and last week has been crazy!   Anyway, today I’m gonna share with you a very simple red packet craft. It’s a star. But since Chinese people like everything auspicious, let’s call it a […]

Rabbit Fun Land, Broga

City folks live a life full of stress. If you are willing to go a distance of about a half-hour drive out of the Klang Valley, you’ll discover a fun petting land in Broga just outside of Kajang town. Unlike the old days when the winding road will guarantee to give you motion sickness, the newly constructed road will give you a feeling of calm and serenity while driving pass Nottingham University campus and then […]

Scorching HOT!

We were in my in-law’s place yesterday until this morning. Went back for some kind of prayers held every ninth day of the Chinese New Year. If you know what that is, then tell ME! lol.. What I ‘dislike’ about going back to my in-law’s (besides the Chicken and Duck talk) is the lack of a cooling system ie. air-cond! In the afternoon, it can be scorching hot and without air-cond is ‘a little’ uncomfortable […]

Getting ready

I browsed through The Star’s newspaper today (11/11/2009). And came across the writeup on ParenThot’s Family Day. Read closer and I saw this… Ok. So my name’s appeared in the newspaper today. Time for tension to kick in! Reality check. Have I done all that are needed to be done for this event? Let’s see…. Ethan has been very cooperative. He gets up in the morning and the first thing he does is to reproduce […]

Night-market trader..

For years I’ve not been able to go to my favourite night market in SS2, PJ. Why? Because it is held every Monday, a work day. Since I don’t drive, I depend solely on my driver (Darling) to bring me there. But if it’s a working day, it will be almost impossible to get him to drive me there. Since last Monday was a festive holiday, I took that golden opportunity to get Darling to […]

Ethan is TWO today!

My little rascal is two today. How time flies! I baked him a simple butter cake of heart and star shape. He helped me in the process and got very excited once he saw the cute cake! The cake. This is how they looked like fresh out from the oven. I got these silicone moulds from Daiso. Darling got him a cake that was supposed to be shared with my students tonite. But suddenly, the […]

Ethan reading Mandarin @ 23mths old

I’m so overly excited right now. My little ‘Banana Boy’ can read in Mandarin! I don’t speak a single word of any Chinese dialect, but for the sake of Ethan, we got him some Chinese kindie books and started to teach him simple words such as family members a couple of days ago. Surprisingly, he gets it very fast! Even faster than when I was teaching him to read in English! Now, I myself needs […]

How to start your child on reading (Intro)

Since the posting of Ethan’s reading video, I’ve been flooded with emails asking me to share tips on how to start young toddlers to read. I am all so happy to share my two cents worth as I believe in nothing but to make every child a reader. But, let me clarify with all the mommies and daddies out there that I am by no means an expert in this field and I should not […]

Reading Sentences @ 20 mths old

Ethan has finally started to read sentences. It was quite tricky getting him to focus one word at a time and proceed to the next word and on and on. Initially he was overwhelm with all the words in a sentence that he just look at them and kept quiet! But now, he finally understood what reading sentences means and is slowly getting used to the concept. The whole-word approach is based on research findings […]

Learning to read – Phonics vs Whole Word Approach

I am sure most of us would like to teach our little precious to read as early in their lives as possible. But not many knows what method to use. Generally there are two methods most commonly used in teaching/learning reading, the phonics way and the whole word approach way. The phonics way is reading by making sense of the spelling and sounds of the word while the whole word approach way is reading by […]

What needs to be done, needs to be done… LOL.. the truth is, his little house is a ruin now. You know, how lasting can a board house be rite? With a boy as mischievous as Ethan, I was surprised the house […]

Bleeding Nose in Toddler

Ethan’s nose bleed again today. This time around we are very calm when it happened because this is the 3rd time it happened. I remembered the first time his nose bleed, cant really remember how old was he, but I know he was barely 1 year old. It was 2.30am in the morning. Darling and I just slept like.. what.. one hour ago? Ethan woke up crying in his crib. Me, blurry eyed, woke up […]

Ethan is 15 mths OLD!

My little Ethan turns 15 mths old yesterday. As usual, with each passing months, I will look at him sleeping and recall the day I held him in my arms for the very first time. He still looks exactly the same to me. Now I understand when people say that you will always be a baby in your mother’s eyes… My dear Ethan, You are starting to run now. Our daily game of Hide ‘n’ […]
