Healing Touch Foot Spa promo with FREE Jungle Gym Kid’s Entry Ticket

It’s the school holidays. Guess who needs a break more than the boys? Yes, ME (not forgetting the Daddy too). Having two active boys at home 24/7 is no joke. I need my ME time before I go crazy but being a stay-at-home-mom with no baby sitter, it is almost impossible to get any pampering done as there won’t be anyone to care for the boys. But all hope is not lost as I found […]

Awana SkyWay : Glass-floor Gondola

We were up in Resorts World Genting again last weekend.

Tour the World with Snoopy at Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting

We drove up to Resorts World Genting yesterday for some fresh air. It is just an hour drive from home anyway hence we used to be a regular here until they started the renovation works that we stopped going up.

Drummer Ethan: Live Band Performance

Bzz bzz bzz… we are busy as a bee. Just the other day I shared Ethan’s drum performance at First City University College. Now I have two more videos to share as he performed with his band members for his school’s Talent Night last Saturday. Because this is a live band performance and includes many of his schoolmates (other than himself), I decided to blur out the name of the school for privacy purposes. They […]

3 Reasons to Stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the heart of Malacca city. You have not seen Malacca unless you’ve spend your time exploring the many places of interests here. It is a favourite amongst tourists and for that very same reason, this area is always packed and abuzz with activities. Driving here can be quite tricky as it is not easy to find an empty parking spot hence many opt to stay nearby so they can just […]

A Surprise Birthday Cake for Daddy’s Birthday Brunch

We are currently in Melaka to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. His birthday was on the 11th but it falls on a weekday with the kids still in school so we had to celebrate a bit later. I choose to bring him to Hotel Equatorial Melaka for their Jazzy Sunday Brunch as I really loved it when we dined here last month. The price is pretty reasonable too especially since both my parents are senior citizens. […]

Ayden’s Milestone: Cycling on two wheels

Ayden has been cycling Ethan’s hand-me-down bicycle with the aid of balancing wheels since October last year. I blogged about it here. He loves cycling very much and will cycle around the court while we play badminton or he’ll follow me on the cement path when I jog. He cycles up and down stones resulting in his balancing wheels getting out of shape and not able to support his bicycle properly.  Yesterday, I noticed him […]

Cute NOHOO bags for kids

We were at KLCC today and I took that opportunity to take some pictures of the boys with the mighty twin towers as backdrop. Our iconic skyscrapers. Beautiful isn’t it? I just can’t get enough of it no matter how many times I see it. As I was taking pictures of Ayden, I saw a group of tourists smiling and gesturing towards him. They were saying something while pointing to Ayden’s cute back pack. Ayden […]

Cook with Ayden: Stir-Fried Long Beans with Egg

I do grocery shopping daily. As I was thinking of what to cook today, I saw some nice long beans and bitter gourd. I love bitter gourd but the boys don’t so I ended up buying long beans. I plan to fry it with eggs. It did not cross my mind that Ayden can actually cook this too as it requires frying. When we were paying, Ayden asked me what was I planning to cook […]

The boys love the braised peanut served as appetisers at Chinese restaurants. They just can’t get enough of it as those peanuts are often served in small portions.

Places of Interest Within Walking Distance in Melaka

My parents are Malaccan. I am born in Melaka but not raised here hence I am as foreign to this place as most tourist out there.

Novotel Melaka : New dining promotions

With a blink of an eye, we are approaching the final quarter of 2017. To me, that means work is 3/4 done and it is time to plan for a holiday to reward ourselves after a year of hard work.

Only recently I introduced prawns to Ayden and he happily cooked Nyonya Assam Prawn with it which we all love very much. Now that Ayden is getting more and more familiar in the kitchen, I start to introduce more varieties of meat […]

3D Colouring: Coloring fun with augmented reality

Usually I’ll print something out for them to colour or paint but today I tried something different with them.  Today, I introduced the boys to augmented reality colouring app for smartphones or tablets.

The boys’ first MRT ride

When we were in Bangkok earlier this month, we relied mostly on their BTS Skytrain to go around the city.  The boys loved riding on that very much that once we are back home in Malaysia, they requested to go for a ride on our very own MRT. Little Ayden find it odd that we don’t take the train here at home but do so when we are abroad. I had to explain to him […]

Moist Chocolate Birthday Cake for the Daddy

It is the Daddy’s birthday today.

This year since the boys can already bake, we decided to surprise him with the boys’ own bake. It was amazing how […]

Easy Homemade Burger Patty Recipe

We can make our own burger bun too but that will be too much of a hassle so for now, let’s just start with making our own burger patty. Making our own burger patty is actually very simple. […]

Little Chefs: Onde-Onde

The ones I ate are mostly just flour with very little gula melaka filling inside. What do you do when you are craving for one of your […]

Hence we decided to get a multi-cooker for him.  We got the new PHILIPS All-in-One Pressure Cooker as we read rave reviews over it online. It functions as a […]
