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 […]

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. […]

Guna Benang Cabut Gigi

Ethan has been complaining of his shaky tooth and a crocodile tooth is growing behind that shaky one. I told him to pull out his shaky tooth but he said no matter how hard he tried, he can’t. LoL! I told him I’ll pull it out by tying a thread around that tooth and tarik out that gigi. He got so scared that he refused to let me go near him. Every single day he’ll […]

Drum Rehearsal

Ethan went to school late today as he attended a rehearsal earlier. He’ll be the opening act for a college’s talent competition this Friday (thanks to Piano Station for arranging it) and today is his first rehearsal.  Ethan in the music room while waiting for the hall to be ready. I like how the students padded the walls with egg cartons. I’ve always wanted to do this for Ethan’s drum room but never got about […]

Prize Giving Day

It is prize giving day today in Ethan’s school. He woke up really early to be there and will have to stay back for his afternoon class as usual. We were worried that he’ll be hungry or tired but thankfully the teacher informed us that parents are allowed to attend so the Daddy can bring Ethan out for lunch after he received his prize.  Darling decided to attend without Ayden and I as it was […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.  […]

Horlicks Chocolate

It was rather disheartening when we received Ethan’s report card late last year. It was not because of his result but more to his growth chart. His height remained the same throughout the entire year while his weight increased a mere 2kg. I poured out my worries on Facebook and many experienced mothers advised me to give Ethan Horlicks for breakfast as it contains 23 growth nutrients such as calcium for strong bones and protein […]

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 […]

Extracting his own tooth

Ethan’s first milk tooth extraction was last year to remove both his lower central incisors when we spotted new teeth growing behind them. We brought him to the dentist to get them removed as I was afraid the new teeth will grow crooked if the milk teeth were not removed. Thank goodness his permanent teeth grew nicely aligned.  A month ago, his upper central incisor started to feel shaky. It was the first time he experienced […]

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. […]

Ethan is EIGHT

Ethan is EIGHT today! Happy birthday Ethan. Big boy dy. It’s not as easy to handle him now as he has his own personality and is at that point where he is finding his own self. He no longer takes instructions blindly. If he doesn’t like it, he’ll make sure to tell us about it. He believes in his friends and teachers more than his parents. He’s more vocal now and at some point, drives […]

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 […]

Tooth Filling

It is exam week these two weeks in Ethan’s school. They are having their mid-term exam. The children have to sit for exams THREE times a year in his school. It was only TWICE last year but since they got a new Principal, things have changed.  This morning out of a sudden, Ethan told us he is having a toothache. We never thought much about it as he just got his teeth filled about a […]

Injured

The other day, I brought both the boys to the playground. They were both running when Ethan tripped and fell.  His knee started to bleed. Ayden squatted there quietly looking at his big brother in pain while I called the Daddy (who was at home) to come over with our First Aid Kit.  I cleaned up Ethan’s wound and brought the kids home.  But look who got plastered all over instead? LoL! This Ayden sibok […]

School Holiday Programme at The School, Jaya One (Part 1)

My readers have been asking me how come I don’t write much about Ethan anymore. The truth is he is always at school while I am always at home with Ayden so obviously I have more to write about Ayden than Ethan right? Anyway, it is the school holidays now and we gave Ethan all the love and attention possible. So this post is all about him today :P Ethan actually has a hectic school […]

Exam woes during the school holidays

With a blink of an eye we are already half way through the two weeks of the school holidays. Our holidays started great with the 4D/3N trip up to Genting but immediately after we got home it was busy, busy and busy for Ethan as he has his Grade 2 Trinity Piano exam on the 4th and Grade 4 Trinity Drum exam on the 10th June! So while other children are playing and enjoying their […]

Animal Kiddie Ride

Last weekend was Ayden’s first time riding on those plush animal kiddie ride. At first we let him ride together with Ethan… But he doesn’t enjoy it.  He doesn’t even like it and requested to be taken away from there. He wanted his own ride so we got him the smaller animal ride. And he loves it! Totally enjoying the experience.  And started going around chasing big bro Ethan.  I foresee us burning RM8 every […]

Not So Picky Eater

One thing about Ethan is it’s very easy to feed him. Just get him chicken rice or noodles and he’s good. He loves spaghetti bolognese and will order that most of the time when we dined out. It’s either that or noodle soup lah. It’s easy to feed him BUT he only eats the same old thing every time. My spaghetti boy.. And now there are TWO! Ayden is following his big bro’s footsteps by […]

Fruit Salad for Pendidikan Moral

Last week Ethan came home with a simple instruction – to select a fruit to bring to school for a project in Pendidikan Moral this week. We told him to bring apples as we always have apples at home. I’m referring to the edible ones this time :P He informed his teacher he will be bringing apples and the teacher gave him another set of instructions – to peel and cut it into cubes and […]
