Am I ready to be a mother?

That is the question most women have in their mind before or soon after finding out that they are pregnant. I am the youngest in my family and never liked kids. However, a year into my marriage I strongly believe I was ready to be a mother. My definition of being a mother is getting pregnant, giving birth to the baby and handing it over to my parents who lives in another state. I promise […]

Don’t procrastinate

I spent most of my schooling days in Sitiawan, Perak. I lived in a rented home in Taman Hijau, Sitiawan where we had GREAT neighbors. Everybody knows everyone else by their names. My immediate neighbor was my parents’ friend even before they got married. They were all in the Navy then. Taman Hijau was our very own Wisteria Lanes… My family moved out of Taman Hijau when I was in college to resettle in their […]

It’s our 7th Wedding Anniversary!

I hope I’m right! LoL! When is your wedding anniversary? The day you got registered or the day we held the tea ceremony and dinner? Sometimes, I take our ROM date as our anniversary but since I forgotten missed that this year, I shall use our wedding ceremony date as our anniversary! Haha.. Anyway, I prefer to use our wedding ceremony date as it is closer to the year end when we are more relaxed. […]

iFart

Darling and I have been together for almost 15 years now. Throughout these 15 years he has never, EVER heard me fart! Seriously! There are so many things I can do in front of him but the ONE thing I won’t do in his presence is farting. Really. Why should I when the art of farting has no sex appeal whatsoever? It doesn’t hold any advantages and worse is it just pollutes the air so […]

His new WALL

Remember my sufferings when Ethan decided to upgrade his study/play room into something more ‘mature’? My fingers all blistered from the peeling of the double layered tapes off the wall. Read all about it here. After days of endless peelings I finally gave up and told Darling to go ahead with the new paint eventhough there are still lots of sticky residues left on the wall. So these two macho topless guys got started with […]

How to remove sticky residues off wall?

I set this room up when Ethan was little. It is filled with cute, colorful and educational wall stickers and posters. That was 5 years ago. Several days ago, Ethan said he has outgrown cute and colorful stuffs. Suddenly I felt my boy has grown so much! He asked if we could reinvent this room. I was stunned for a moment, unsure what to answer him.  After thinking for some time, I agreed. Ethan is […]

Tonight, we sleep in the guest room

We were all in the master bedroom today after lunch with Darling showering Ethan to freshen him up before his piano lesson. Yeah, Darling showered Ethan while I was lying on the bed getting people to watch my YouTube video >_<  YES, Darling was at HOME at lunch time! Ain’t I lucky or what? We are lucky to have Darling coming home for lunch EVERY day! Must be my cooking is THAT good or our […]

Bernama Radio24 – The Lounge @ 8Twelve LIVE with Gerard Ratnam

We went LIVE on 93.9FM at 9.15pm tonight. It was seriously LIVE! I thought there would be like a pre-recorded session but NOoooooo, it was LIVE! The first thing I did when we arrived was to take a “I was HERE” pic and tweeted it out. Once the tweet went live my heart started palpitating and legs went wobbly. Me, Jun Sern, Shawn and Ethan Shawn and the producer, Kok Jun Sern chatted with us […]

A visit from RTM

I missed the launch of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 today because it was held in KLPAC while I was having a meeting with RTM in my Studio at the other end of the world. Of all day lah kan, they had to clash! >_<  Talking about RTM, they contacted me requesting for a meet-up and knowing that I don’t drive, they are all so kind to arrange our FIRST meeting at our Studio :D I […]

Diaper explosion!

I was spring cleaning my house today. I looked through Ethan’s old clothes, his sheets, curtains and more and dumped them into the washing machine to give them a rinse before putting them away or maybe letting those pre-loved items go. NEVER did I imagine when the washing machine sings its usual tune signalling that my laundry is done, I’ll be facing the BIGGEST mess ever!  I was greeted with THIS! Gel-like substance flowing out […]

Wrap your precious one with the softness of Comfort Ultra Pure

When it comes to beauty, we always wish to have skin as smooth as a baby’s. But do you know that baby’s skin is thinner, more sensitive and less oily than an adult’s. They are more prone to rashes and other skin condition. That’s the reason why we are encouraged to apply baby oil onto our new born’s delicate skin; to moisturise and keep them comfortable. Ethan is no longer a baby but his skin […]

Leap to happiness

Being a full-time stay-at-home-mother (SAHM) requires a lot of motivation to keep me going and stay happy in my mundane life. Sometimes I can’t help but think grass is greener on the other side. Sometimes I wish to still be working and have friends to hang out with. Sometimes I wish things were different… But reality is I’m a mother to this boy: Weeeeeee! I’m HAPPY! I JUMP when I’m HAPPY! Weeeeeee! Look Mommy! I […]

The RIGHTs and WRONGs of parenting

I don’t know where to start or where to end but I know I have to write this out or else I’ll get more and more people buzzing me asking if I’m okay. Yes, I was upset today and yes, my Facebook status says it all. Out of a random chat with a friend, this came out, “be honest, i think ethan still need to learn to respect u and william more. If he ever […]

Fake or Real?

In this world we are living today, in this digital era that has taken us by storm, it is hard to tell real from fakes and vice versa. Not everything we read in the media is real. They say a picture speaks a thousand words but these days with picture manipulation so easily done, we can hardly trust the thousand words that a picture tells.. I’ve not posted pictures of myself for quite some time […]

How to peel a kiwi?

Gold or rather yellow kiwi fruit is the craze these days. Nevermind how expensive they are, we are consuming them like mad just because they are said to be higher in nutrients. The fact that they are sweeter and bald makes it more appealing to me lah actually.  How do you peel a kiwi fruit anyway? I don’t like to use the peeler as I’ll end up wasting a thick chunk of skin and flesh […]

What’s YOUR problem?!!

I was with Ethan at Daiso 1U yesterday evening. Was looking for some stuffs for tomorrow’s big project. There’s this girl I think around 6 years old kept on looking at us and standing close to us. Then, Ethan’s stroller touched her toes. She screamed at me, “Dunno how to say SORRY wan ah?!!” I was shocked!! I walked away. She followed us close. I ignored her. She brought another girl, younger than her I […]

It’s the mid year and EVERYONE is at the beach. Facebook is full of pictures of people jumping on the beach. It’s like You Go Beach, You JUMP! If you don’t, you have NOT officially been to the beach yet! Yeah lah, guilty as charged lah, we did that too not too long ago. Hehe… Anyway, I did this out of boredom today. I wish I’m at the beach now!

Darling met me up in Chin Swee later at night after his work. The next day I noticed a white dot on my right cornea. Can you see the white dot? I dunno how to photograph […]

I can SEW!

My mother can’t live without her sewing machine. I on the other hand, can’t live if I HAVE a sewing machine! I hate sewing. You don’t see me sew for nothing. If I have to get my dresses or pants altered, I’ll send them to my trusty tailor to do it. And if I get Ethan to deliver the clothes, they might fix the button free of charge! :P But today I was caught in […]

My daily life with Samsung Galaxy S3

Follow me on FB and you’ll know that I got hold of the Samsung Galaxy S3 on the day they were launched not too long ago. The first thing I did was to tear the security seal off and… Whoa! Macam monyet I was amazed at how the seal reveals the word ‘OPEN’ once it is peeled off the white box! Security max-lah as you won’t be able to reuse that seal! Seal of approval […]

Petrol is now available in shopping complex

Do you know that you can now fill up on petrol while shopping? Yeah, our Malaysia boleh spirit has taken the bold step of setting up petrol stations in the car park of shopping malls. I was taken aback when Darling drove us to 1U several weeks ago. I exclaimed, “Whoa! Now you can fill up HERE!” (though we don’t actually use that brand lah). Darling said, “Dangerous weh, if explode, the whole shopping mall […]

Perfect Romantic Escape

The last time we stepped foot in Langkawi was back in 2002. Wow, that was TEN years ago! @[email protected] There.. ten years ago in Langkawi, Darling and I looked like that ^.^ How did we let a decade passed by without returning to Langkawi? Maybe we got married, delivered a baby and life got so hectic that we did not get the chance to travel anymore :( When did my life turned so sad? :'( […]

Stretch mark : Causes and managing it

Being pregnant is one of life’s miracles. We ladies get to experience this wonderful journey while the guys can just watch in envy :P However, what is not to envy is the appearance of stretch marks in some women during pregnancy. While some mothers take it as a blessing; treating stretch marks as a token to cherish her pregnancy, I would do all I can to prevent it. What causes stretch marks? Imagine your skin […]

The bitter bitter gourd soup

The weather has been hot like crazy these days so I thought of boiling my favourite bitter gourd soup over the weekend to cool us down. I’ve never boiled this before I tell you though I’ve had it outside countless times. How hard can it be? It’s just like boiling any other soup but instead of using old cucumber or anything else, we use bitter gourd. No? –  pork ribs –  bitter gourd 苦瓜 (rub […]
