Should Kids Be Playing with Toy Guns?

I don’t know if you remember but I was very against Ethan playing with toy guns when he was younger. My Dad was very excited to buy him toy guns but I stopped him, telling him that I dislike Ethan playing with weapons eventhough they are just toys. Obviously my dad was very disappointed, annoyed even but he respected my stand. I was even interviewed by a newspaper publication yet I vehemently stood by my […]

DIY Butter Sandwich

It’s the school holidays this week and I have two constantly hungry boys at home. While I was in the kitchen preparing snacks for tea yesterday, Ayden had an accident in his cot. He knocked his teeth against the cot and bleed a little. Today, I decided to let the boys make their own snack. Ok maybe Ethan will be the one making it while Ayden sits down and observe :D I should have let […]

Ethan’s First Talent Competition

Ethan participated in his very first talent competition yesterday. It is called, “Kids Got Talent“. When we first found out about this competition, Ethan was excited to participate. But after reading further details, we found this clause – THIS TALENT COMPETITION IS OPEN TO ALL MALAYSIAN AGED BETWEEN 4 TO 18 YEARS OLD and we were like, “OK. 18 year olds are NOT kids!” and got hesitant from participating BUT Darling was very positive. He encouraged […]

Behind The Scenes Tour – Let Your Adventure Begins!

We were up in Genting last weekend right? As you know, Genting is going through a major ‘make-over’ with their outdoor theme park making way for the much anticipated Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park. Without the outdoor theme park, what did we do during our recent 3D/2N stay there? Well, to our surprise, we did so much that not a single minute is wasted! One of the activity that we signed Ethan up for is the ‘Behind […]

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 […]

Crystal Piano

Have you ever seen a crystal piano for real? I haven’t until last Monday. We were in Piano Station where I saw, touched and took pictures of it! Lomence Crystal Grand Piano These modern crystal pianos look like they come out of fairy tales. It would be super awesome if there is one that is totally transparent but the price for that will definitely be sky high. The ones here are already hitting the roof! […]

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 […]

Learning the Practical Way

Ethan is turning 7 next month. While it was generally ‘easy’ raising him, he drives me crazy at times too. I am lucky in a sense that Ethan is a bit smart. Book smart that is. Teach him anything and that boy can comprehend it quite effortlessly. But because he is ‘too smart’, he sometimes thinks that he can outsmart us, his parents.  Very often, he’ll argue about the simplest of things. Maybe it is […]

Ethan’s Very First Sports Day

Friday was Ethan’s first Sports Day ever. That boy never had the chance to attend any Sports Day in preschool as he was home-schooled pretty much all the way except the last 7 months when I found out I was pregnant and sent him to Kindy due to my bad morning sickness. A week before the Sports Day, his teacher told the students involved that they are to be present in school at 7.30am. Darling complained […]

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 […]

Amazing balancing butterfly craft

A friend reminded me recently that I made a really cool, magical bird back in our primary school days that got them all awed. Funny that I don’t remember about it until he mentioned it. I’ve forgotten how to do it though so I asked my sister if she remembers and sure enough, she did. We discussed further how to actually make it and today, I made it with Ethan. This is a really fun […]

First milk tooth extraction and tooth fairy

When I was teaching, I encountered many of my students having their permanent tooth/teeth growing behind their milk teeth making those permanent teeth grow in such mess. I often wondered why their parents did not bring them to the dentist to get those milk teeth extracted. Ethan is in Primary 1 now and I’ve been monitoring his teeth extra carefully as I see that his jaw is growing bigger and his milk teeth getting wider […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

School Injury Insurance Claim

Ethan was involved in an accident in school recently. A student knocked into him at the staircase causing an injury to his head. The student (Year 5) carried Ethan into the office for initial treatment. The school’s person-in-charge then called Ethan’s father to take him for further check-up. The father brought him to our family doctor where his wound was checked and cleansed. I’m not sure if it was the doctor or the teacher who […]

Bread Sushi

Ethan was on medical leave the other day and we got hungry but I realised we ran out of rice at home. I’ve not been cooking much lately so we don’t have much stuff stocked up at home. I checked and all we had was bread, egg and nori sheets. Bread, egg and nori sheets. What can we make out of them? We made sushi! Bread sushi to be exact…  Here’s how we made the cheat […]

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 […]

Taekwondo @ school

Ever since Ethan was exposed to Muay Thai back in 2012, he has been dying to learn more but we never got to it. Ethan’s wish of learning some martial art finally materialised last weekend. He has been pestering us to let him join the taekwondo lessons held in our neighbourhood but we’ve been putting that off coz it is held at night in the open field. The idea of them learning taekwondo in the […]

Archery

Remember we were in Sunway Pyramid 2 weeks ago? Besides their beautiful CNY decor, they also have an archery booth. Ethan wanted to give it a try so Darling paid RM10 for 12 arrows. Ethan’s first time being Robin Hood :) The person in charge guiding Ethan on the proper way to handle the bow and arrow.  It was quite tough as this requires some strength.  Ethan placing the arrow on his own.  Propelling arrows […]

Our highlight of 2013

With a blink on an eye, 2013 is coming to an end. The highlight of 2013 for me has got to be conceiving, delivering and bringing up Ayden. Yes, the arrival of Ayden shocked many readers out there as I did not announce my pregnancy prior to it. I’ve never explain why I kept quiet through it all yet and today I will. After Ethan, Darling and I wanted to space several years before trying […]
