Centipede Bite

It was Friday the 13th. I was rushing through a project and only managed to go to bed at 2am. At 2.45am I jumped out of bed out of a sudden. I don’t know why or what woke me up but there I was, blur sotong thinking what had happened and then I saw Darling staring blankly at the wall with his left hand on his right arm.  I asked him what happened and our […]

Chinese New Year to me now is…

When I was a child, I loved Chinese New Year. I always look forward to celebrating the Chinese New Year eventhough that means travelling 5-6 hours (I think) by bus with my family back to my hometown in Malacca. I still remember clearly waking up early in the morning to the appetising aroma of Maggi Chicken Instant Noodles. We always eat that before travelling. After having breakfast, I was always forced to eat ‘travelling pill’ […]

A Shopping Sunday

I dread shopping. The reason being it is difficult to find stuffs my size. If you don’t already know, I am hobbit sized. I can never get dresses that fits perfectly. They are often too long. A dress that hangs nicely above the knee to normal people will look like a maxi on me >_< Forget about buying shoes. It’s a nightmare to find shoes that fits. My shoes are often a size bigger but […]

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 […]

Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year everybody! How is 2015 treating you so far? As for us, on the eve of 2014, we wanted to celebrate by going out to makan besar lah but guess what? All the restaurants worth going are fully booked. How come nobody tell us that we need to make reservation for NYE dinner? >_< Hungry like mad with stomach growling for the world to hear, we ended in 1U for dinner. So happy […]

That boy doesn’t know my name.. yet :P It seems like only yesterday we received this: And after all that ‘drama’, they sent Ayden this: A year has passed in a blink of an eye. Thank you Nuffnang for the thoughtful gesture. It is certainly a pleasure […]

Catch-up with an ex-classmate

One of the highlights of my Penang trip is to meet up an ex-classmate of mine whom I’ve not seen for almost 2 decades. Sometimes I wonder why people even bothered to make time to see me. You see, I’ve been giving him a hard time from the first day he found out I’ll be in Penang. He was so kind to initiate a meet up and also to try getting some other ex-classmates to […]

Inside a Chrysler

For the first time in our lives last weekend, we got to be up close and personal with a super luxurious Chrysler limousine.  Chrysler was never in my dictionary until I met it last Friday. Got the key so let’s get inside! Fuah! Fuah! Fuah! The interior of this Chrysler is more luxurious than my bedroom! Okay Ayden is unhappy coz he wants to play with the tv screen. Not too sure what MTV was playing […]

Fun facts about Submerryn

I have a blog manager. Yes it’s always good to have a blog manager coz it can be quite sad (and stressful) to have to sell your blog yourself. With a blog manager, I can just leave the marketing to them and spend my time concentrating on creating fresh new contents and update my blog regularly. Recently, my blog manager wants to create an info sheet of their talents and asked me several questions so we can work better. […]

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 […]

I Don’t Want To Touch A Dog

I don’t want to touch a dog. I don’t know why people are dying to touch or pat them but you won’t see me doing it. I won’t touch a dog. I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it and I’m telling you as it is, I don’t like dogs and I don’t see anything wrong with that. There’s only one thing I dislike more than dogs and that is anyone who tells me […]

Breastfeeding a toddler

I did not manage to breastfeed Ethan for more than 3 months. By the time he was 4 months old, I fell sick, my supply dropped and I gradually weaned him off. I blame it on my lack of knowledge and support back then. I feel much regret each time I think about it. Every time he gets sick, I’ll blame myself for not trying harder to breastfeed him. With Ayden, I was very determine […]

Reunited and it feels so good.. or not?

Late last year, thanks to technology, I was reunited with my former school mates. We had a great time catching up online. I was nervous initially as it has been a couple of decades since I last saw or heard of most of these people. The thing about reuniting with your old friends is facing the living ghosts of your past. These friends remember you for what you are back in school. Now, talking about […]

Retrieving deleted pictures

Technically my pictures are not deleted. They just vanished. You see it happening to others but kept thinking, “NO, this will never happen to me”. I heard people complaining that they lost precious photos from their phones or computers yet I still think, “NO, this will NEVER ever happen to me”. And then it HAPPENED! Last night, I lost all of my precious pictures of Ayden and Ethan in my phone. All 6000 of them! Just […]

Peek-a-boo Haze

How many of you realised Monday’s strange phenomenon? Yes we all know the dreaded HAZE is back but on Monday, it was playing peek-a-boo with us wasn’t it? Throughout the day it came and go as it wishes. Come evening I got so frustrated as I was getting ready for my daily walk in the park but this blardy HAZE kept wanting to play with me. When I opened the door to check, the air […]

My Kind of Breakfast

Wanna see what I eat every weekday? Well I say weekday because weekends I tend to relax and eat a totally different kind of food. Actually weekends are for me to let go and indulge in anything and everything I feel like eating (such as nasi lemak, roti canai and the whole works) while weekdays are more of clean eating for me (but not overnight oats). So here’s what you’ll usually see on my breakfast […]

Shopping for clothes after pregnancy

Since giving birth to Ayden I’ve not gone shopping for clothes for the most obvious reason – fat. Those extra flabs will just ruin any nice outfit hence I always resorted to baggy tee and ah pek pants. Another factor is bcoz I am breastfeeding so my choice of clothes are usually based on how easily my boobs are accessible by the baby ( not the Daddy, Daddy needs to find a new hobby ). […]

Nipple Confusion: REAL vs FAKE

When it comes to titty (either of two soft fleshy milk-secreting glandular organs on the chest of a woman) you just cant fool them. They know the real ones from the many ‘commercialised’ ones out there. I gave Ayden a new toy to play with yesterday and he suckled on it thinking they are my titties but he soon came to his senses…

Mozzies… Gah!

Had a rough time trying to sleep last night. There was this annoying mozzie that kept buzzing in my ear. I hate mozzies and I believe they can sense that in me. The more I shoo them away, the louder they shout at my eardrum. Their ringing buzzing sound is worse than a nagging wife. Not that I nag la, am referring to other nagging wives in general. Darling has got to count his lucky […]

One City Skypark rooftop

The first time I set foot in One City was in January. We went to their Skypark and was amazed at their see-through glass floor. Ethan and friends trying to capture what it looks like from the glass roof. From the roof top, this is what we saw when we look down. We are 10 levels up and only supported by a double layered glass floor. This is not for the faint hearted! We went […]

Submarine Museum, Malacca

One fine day, I saw pictures of my cousin’s hubby and son visiting a submarine. Well, I’ve seen them visiting helicopters, ships and all and kept thinking how nice if Ethan gets to see all those for real and then I saw the SUBMARINE and totally lose it.  You can imagine my excitement! I’ve never seen a real submarine in my life! It’s only fair that this Submerryn gets to see and touch a real […]

The Cause of Power Failure

We experienced a sudden power failure last Monday. Just when everyone is busy storing water for the water rationing exercise, we are left in the darkness. By ‘we’ I meant my house and my house alone. Our neighbours still have lights and water. We have water but no light :( Our neighbours are all very kind though. 1Malaysia  spirit all the way! Whatever color also come out to help us check what’s the problem. We […]

When Mommy Is the Barber

Just like with Ethan, I cut Ayden’s hair too. I started cutting Ethan’s hair since he was 3 months onwards but with Ayden I started really early. I trimmed his hair shortly after fullmoon. I used the exact same yellow Bumboo chair that Ethan used for Ayden now. Ayden however, unlike Ethan, is more difficult to handle. Ethan will sit still and quietly let me cut his hair but Ayden is terrible! He refused to […]

Hit and Run

Yesterday evening we went to fetch Ethan from school. Darling parked his car by the roadside and walked to the school while Ayden and I waited in the car. I was singing to Ayden when I heard a loud bang and a sudden jolt. I looked up to see a car sped off. I quickly took down the registration number. My heart was pumping so hard it felt like it was going to explode. With […]

Dry Spell

What do we call the phenomenon that is currently affecting the Klang Valley? Do we call it drought? Or dry spell? I wanted to use the term ‘dry spell’ but a check at urban dictionary states that dry spell is to go for a period of time (usually longer than shorter) without something; sex, drugs etc. Yikes! I’m certainly NOT talking about abstinence from sex!  :-D In that case I think we’ll use the term […]
