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 […]

When Kids Blog

With a blink of an eye, the long weekend is over. Can’t believe how tiring it is to spend time with two active boys these days. It is either age is catching up with me or the boys are getting tougher. Out of the four off days, we get to spend one day at home peacefully with no agenda planned as the daddy needed to attend to some matters with our new tenant. As I […]

Ethan’s Drumming Journey

Ethan first started learning drum in October 2012. He was 5 years old then. And by October 2013, his drum teacher featured him on the cover of his first book ‘Play With Colours’ Volume 1. Through the music school, Ethan got the chance to perform in public. Fast forward to 2015, Ethan is now waiting to sit for his Grade 4 exam somewhere in May or June. And this is one of the exam piece […]

Milking the Cow

Why am I seeing so many pictures of parents bringing their kids to milk the cow on Facebook and blogs lately? Is it milking season now? So many lucky children got the luxury to travel overseas where the grass is greener and the cows are cuter. Seriously, their cows are so much better looking compared to our lembus here.  I don’t have the milk and honey to bring the boys to Australia nor New Zealand to […]

Ayden’s Reading Progress @ 19 months and Some Random Updates

It’s 1st of April 2015. Things will never be the same again after today with the implementation of GST but I’m not going to talk about that as I am no expert in this issue. I shall wait and see how this will affect my family’s expenditure. In preparation for GST, I resumed teaching. I am now giving private tuition again at night in my house. I’m so thankful I still have students eventhough I’ve […]

Ethan, Have You Eaten?

Every where Ethan goes, people will be asking him, “Ethan, have you eaten?”. One fine day, Ethan told his Dad that when he was younger, he did not understand what that means. He thought people were always asking, “Ethan, have you Ethan?” and to him, that made no sense. Only recently did he finally get what people meant when they asked him, “Ethan, have you eaten?” His conversation with his Dad prompted him to start […]

When You Are Ball Less

Having balls is very important. People look up to you if you have a ball or better still, balls coz they want to share share play with you. If you are ball less without a ball you will get bored easily. There’s only so much you can do on the playground equipment. Sometimes, it is nice to run around and kick some balls.  But what do you do on days when you don’t have your […]

How to pronounce the word ‘Sewing’

OK here’s the deal. Ethan came home from school today telling me his English teacher taught him a new word. I said, “Great! Tell me what word is that?” He said, “Siu-wing”. Me: Suing? Ethan: No, ‘siu-wing’. Me: What’s ‘siu-wing’? Ethan: You know, thread and needles… sewing? Me: Ah! Soh-ing! Ethan: Yes. Soh-wing! Me: No… Soh-ing! Ethan: Yes. Soh-Wing! Ok ok. I don’t mind him pronouncing it as ‘soh-wing’ though the ‘w’ is supposed to […]

Dr Kong healthy shoes

This post I am sharing is very personal to me as it involves Ethan and his foot condition. I was totally unaware about it until recently. I hope with this sharing, many mothers out there will be more aware about the well-being of their children’s feet. Before we got Ayden, when we went shopping with Ethan, we still bring along the stroller even when he was 4 to 5 years old. The reason being he always […]

Outdoor Learning Activity for Toddlers

Big brother Ethan is still feverish hence he skipped school again today. In the evening, the weather was very beautiful; sunny and windy so I brought them to the playground for some fresh air and sunshine.  After spending about half an hour playing on the playground equipments, I introduced a simple color learning activity for Ayden. It is always fun to learn outdoors as the resources are endless. For today’s activity, I suggested for the […]

Boys day out …

I went to bed after 2am last night or rather, this morning as I was rushing out some work.By 4am, Ayden woke up for milk. I was like, “what?” He doesn’t usually wake up for milk anymore so why is he awake now? I touched him and noticed he was warm. Darn, he is feverish. He was feverish but not too high so I just nurse him back to sleep without giving him any medicine. He […]

The Learning Process

Art subject can be fun and interesting but more often than not, parents and students don’t see it that way. For example Ethan brought home his latest art project last week. It is a texture and color art work. His teacher gave him a piece of paper with a printing of a robot on it. He is required to find surfaces with textures, place the paper on it and color; making prints on the robot along the […]

Wrapping School Books

Ethan had been unwell since Monday evening but on Tuesday insisted to go to school as his fever subsided. We allowed him because there was no point arguing with him as he was very determined and looked okay then. But he came home on Tuesday with high fever and feeling nauseous. I did not allow him to go to school on Wednesday and made him rest at home instead. He kept himself busy doing his homework when […]

Coconut Water to Beat the Heat

Many people are falling ill under this torturous weather. I boil barley frequently for the family as they (especially Ethan) are getting really heaty from being out in this scorching heat. Ayden and I are quite okay as we spend most of our time in the comfort of our home but Ethan and the father are always out and it is important to keep them well hydrated. Ethan’s nose bleed episodes are getting more frequent […]

Paper Quilling Chinese New Year Card

We don’t usually go to Paradigm Mall but several weeks ago we did to meet up with friends. After out meet up, we thought of walking around for a while when we passed by Popular Bookstore and saw that they are giving a free art and craft session for kids but there was not even a single kid keen to participate. Why? What is happening to kids these days? Art and crafts don’t fancy them […]

Ultrasonic Iron Treatment

You know I am actually relieved that we are having another week of school holidays. It’s because we haven’t got time to prepare Ethan’s back-to-school stuff until the very last minute. This weekend had been a very busy one for us with buying school shoes, uniform, wrapping books and also to get his haircut. When I was in school, my school shoes are just plain white shoes. But Ethan.. this boy had Angry Bird and Ben 10 […]

Ethan’s very first magic trick

Ethan is into magic now. He has always wanted to learn magic (after watching a couple of magic shows in Genting) but we never bothered to let him pursue it as we were not sure where to start. Last week, we came across a ‘magic shop’ and paid a fortune for his first magic prop that we soon found out to be just ordinary plastic cups but he managed to learn the trick nevertheless and let […]

Craft lessons during the holidays

I am very fortunate as I have a great Whatsapp group that consists of Ethan’s classmates’ moms. One of the mom initiated it and slowly but surely we help to add other mothers we got to know along the way. They have been very supportive throughout Ethan’s Primary One journey. We checked with each other if we were unsure regarding their homework or anything school related. Before the school holidays, I suggested that the kids […]

Would you let your kid play in puddles?

Ethan loves watching Upin dan Ipin. Actually I love watching them too as they feature the life and adventures of the good old kampung lifestyle. Just the other day, we were watching an episode where the cute twins went fishing and Ethan asked me, “Mommy, how come we never go fishing? How come we never do what they do?” I did not know what to answer him. I did whatever Upin and Ipin did but […]

Green Day – Minority Drum Cover

We just got home from celebrating a friend’s early birthday and I am dead tired. Been sleeping really late the past few nights so tonight I think I’ll catch up on my sleep. That also means I won’t be able to write a long blog post. I realised that I’ve not posted videos of Ethan playing the drum or piano for quite some time now so here goes. This is Ethan drumming to the song […]

Stop Saying My Toddler Is Skinny

One of my greatest pet peeves as a mother is when people see my toddler and start going, “Oh he’s so skinny!” I got that with Ethan and now history repeats with Ayden. This was Ethan @ 14 months old This is Ayden at almost 14 months old.  Both Ethan and Ayden were born small but caught up and tripled their birth weight in no time. They have chubby cheeks as a baby but people […]

How to get your kids to do their revision?

It’s the exam week this and next week. Today is an off day though to accommodate the UPSR exam. Since last weekend we have been struggling to get Ethan to do his revision. Remember in my post here I mentioned I had not a productive weekend? That was because we deliberately stayed home so Ethan can do his revision but guess what? He did not. He chose to play instead. My blood boiled telling him […]

Taman Santai Strawberry Park, Genting

A few weeks ago we brought Ayden up to Genting for the very first time. With Ethan, we used to frequent Genting twice a month but after I delivered Ayden, we stopped going up until recently. On our way down after spending 3D/2N in Awana Genting, we stopped by this Taman Santai Strawberry Genting. This strawberry farm is different from the one we’ve been with Ethan quite some time ago called Goh Tong Strawberry Park. […]
