His twisted leg

We went to Tesco over the weekend. We rarely go to Tesco but somehow ended up there yesterday. I needed to go to the washroom so I told Ethan to stay with Darling. Came out of the washroom to hear some commotion between Darling and Ethan! I was gone barely five minutes! @[email protected] I heard this: Darling: Stand properly-lah! Ethan: This IS standing properly-LAH!! Darling: NO! Stand pro-per-ly!!! Ethan: YES-lah! Stand properly dy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I terus […]

Sometimes, being DOWN is good.

A couple of days ago , Blogger went down for an hour for maintenance purposes. Most of us were in our work place then. It’s interesting to see how barely a minute after Blogger went down, FB and Twitter were flooded with horrified bloggers’ updates of not being able to log into Blogger. I was in the office too then and was wondering WHAT TO DO during that ONE hour. Should I spend that time […]

Of guns and lollipops

ParenThots interviewed me not too long ago regarding the topic of toy guns. They wanted to know if I’m in favour or against the idea of letting my child play with toy guns. Well, in general I am against Ethan playing with toy guns. I don’t buy him toy guns just like how I don’t buy him lollipops! What good are there in both of them you tell me? BUT I do know that no […]

Teddylicious Trudy & Teddy

I still remember on our 1st wedding anniversary, we toured Europe. I fell in love all over again. I love the culture, the food and most of all I love the Europeans’ sense of fashion. That was five years ago. *terkenang masa dulu.. hu hu hu :(* Try reading the papers or browse online these days and I bet the first thing that catches your attention is the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

A Touch of Comfort

I’m so done with telling the world how Ethan and I have been a little under the weather lately. Ethan’s been fighting a losing battle with flu and cough for weeks now while I get stomach discomfort at the slightest indigestion making me very stressed up when it comes to eating!  Back to his runny nose, the skin surrounding his nose area is reddish and injured due to the constant friction and rubbing when I […]

Always have protection on! Wear a helmet!

Howdy folks! How are you enjoying your long weekend? It’s a beautiful day — the sun is shining, the birds are chirping. What could be more perfect than a bike ride? The bicycle is getting more and more popular these days since it’s rather environment friendly. So make sure you ride safe! It’s important to wear your bike helmet to avoid head injury! Wear a bike helmet EVERY TIME YOU RIDE, even if you are […]

EMO post

It’s that time again when I’m down, really, really down! EMO to the max! The first thing I did when I arrived office was try to deactivate my FB account but guess what? I wasn’t able to do that as I created Crafty-Crafted Fan Club and if I deactivate my FB account, the Fan Club will be affected! As EMO as I am, I’m still sane and no way will I let my precious Crafty-Crafted Fan […]

While I was sleeping, I kinda overheard Darling and Ethan’s conversation. Ethan : How to do this, Daddy? Darling: Err.. dunno. Why so hard one this one? Nevermind, ask Mommy afterds. Ethan: But Mommy sick, kenot disturb! Darling: Ok… Apparently […]

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 […]

Thank you In Tech

A couple of weeks ago, a journalist from The Star’s In.Tech called me up requesting for an interview session in my craft studio on that day itself. I got like just a few hours’ notice and I was a nervous wreck. Thank goodness for my online buddies who managed to somewhat calm me down a little :P This morning I woke up to several sms-es telling me that we are in Tech Takes :D According […]

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 […]

My Hero!

Last night we saw this dead Jerry in our car porch. It must be the works of Tom as the autopsy revealed that Jerry died from severe stab wounds caused by a sharp object (must be Tom’s bite!)Darling is afraid (geli) of all things furry. {Thank goodness I’m not a fur ball!} So yours truly had to execute the disposal mission. I took a garden spade, some old newspapers and a plastic bag. I poke […]
