Antelope’s Horn

I’ve been unwell lately. Last night I slept for a total of 11 hours straight! That is extremely rare I tell you. After tucking Ethan to bed I fell asleep immediately. Darling woke me up to ask if I wanna blog but I just can’t open my eyes and told him, “NO, my head’s too heavy” and continued sleeping until the next day. My throat hurts badly that swallowing saliva oso pain :( I breathe […]

It’s our 6th Wedding Anniversary!

22 October 2011. It’s our 6th Wedding Anniversary today! :D It all started with that ice-skating outing with my colleagues and Darling (then my superior) pretending not knowing how to skate and there I was taking advantage of the situation to hold his hand and skate together :D So I thought he was pretending but now I know he really CAN’T skate! And I thought he was enjoying my flirting with him only to know […]

Lancôme Blush Subtil Rose – A Luminescent Complexion Enhancer

What is the ONE make-up item that you can’t live without? Okay to be fair, EVERYONE needs a good foundation so that won’t count here. Besides foundation, what other make-up item you MUST have in your make-up kit? As for me, other than a good long lasting mascara, I like to dust a hint of blusher or bronzer before going out. I said a HINT of blusher, not painting the entire face RED! o.O I […]

The Correct Way To Wear A Bra

I was at Wacoal Let’s Pink event @ 1Utama today for the launching of its 2011 Pink Ribbon Campaign to promote breast cancer awareness. One of the highlights during the launch is the Let’s Pink catwalk… Okay, so after seeing the models looking so sweet and pretty in pink I started to wonder, how do they DO that? Yeah you know what I mean.. They wear it so good don’t they? So I visited one […]

A Heart Full Of Spaghetti

Last weekend I was back in my in-laws place. My SIL cooked some kind of long bean dish that Ethan loved so much he alone ate almost half of it. Nvm… Then guess what? Darling had to ask Ethan who is the better cook? My SIL or ME? And Ethan answered, “Kuku…” (which also means my SIL-lah). You know who was the happiest then? No prize for guessing.. yeah.. my MIL! It’s no secret I’m […]

Flame – BLUE or RED?

I told Ethan once that fire is red, yellow or even orange in colour.  He colours  any picture of flames with those shades since then. Today, while I was cooking he saw the flame on the gas stove and asked me… Ethan: Mummy, why is the fire blue? Me: Yes, yes.. (Sometimes I’m like that. When I’m concentrating on something and he asks me a question I’ll just nod and say YES no matter what […]

Rejection comes early

I brought Ethan to Smaland, Ikea again yesterday. Yeah, it’s like his playground now. We go there like every other day! *okay for those of you who doesn’t know what is Smaland, read my previous post about it here* Yet until today, I still don’t leave him there and go shopping. I still sit outside and go online from my iPhone. So sometimes when I see him dangling from inside like the picture above, I’ll […]

How to put on fake nails

My professional manicure done at home in under 5 minutes :D As a homemaker and a craftier, I always end up with ugly nails. I can never grow them long enough without chipping. I can never grow them long as they’ll be in the way of my work. So I have to live with ugly nails… @[email protected] Fake nails I was at a pharmacy today and saw some amazing set of fake nails but they […]

Covered in poop

I was at my work place as usual today waiting for Darling to send Ethan over after his class in Bao Bei. Right on time Ethan appeared at the glass door. I greeted him with a kiss and a hug and asked him how his day was. He said it was okay and I continued by asking how many times he went to the loo during lessons today. I don’t know why but each time he […]

Trying to get over the Tiger Mom episode, let’s look at some happier moments :D Look at how happy the lil’ one is with the BIG one… 1,2,3.. GO!!! Faster Daddy, faster! Weeeeee! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SUPERMAN! Human mop? :P Smile – A simple act, but sometimes takes a lot of effort.

Too demanding or simply stupid?

It has been a rough day today. Little events lead to some big explosions.. He’s asleep now and when I reflected on today’s event I felt like an arse. Why was I being so demanding? Let me tell you what happened.. It started with him stringing these beads. So cute isn’t he? There we were, happily stringing. He string one and I string another. We then count how many beads we each have. But unlike […]

The Sun

It’s a BIRD! It’s a PLANE! NO! It’s a Female SUN! >_< Did you manage to catch the Sun as it sets this evening? I was on my way to Empire when I saw this rather feminine Sun.. First time I saw a pink Sun! So beautiful! Just as I managed to capture it from my moving vehicle it went hiding and can’t be seen anymore after that :(

Right pet for a child?

Since we were surrounded by cats and dogs over the past few days in my hometown, Ethan has requested to have a pet of his own too. I will definitely NOT agree to having a cat nor a dog at home for I kinda dislike them. Sorry to all cats and dogs lovers out there. I thought of getting him a turtle but… He rather have rats! Of course I won’t agree to getting him […]

Koala in Malacca

Am glad to be back in my hometown. But what a bummer this time around as Ethan is such a koala! He is afraid to go anywhere as every corner he goes, there is either a cat or a dog as unlike us my relatives are all animal lovers. ROAR! Looking back at you kiddo! This cat is as big as Ethan :P There are other cats and dogs taller than Ethan but I don’t have pic of them… […]

Ethan @ events

I started bringing Ethan out for events when he was almost two. I was new in the blogging scene then… Time flies, he was so cute back then :D After tagging along and observing what I do for so long, he started to acquire the photography skill. He is also my ever willing subject, will smile for food :P He’s such a darling when it comes to media workshops. Never once did he interfere with […]

Can’t eat during pregnancy

Ethan asked us once where babies come from. We asked him where he thinks babies come from and he answered, “The hospital”. Darling then explained to him that the Mommy has to get pregnant first, then the baby will grow in the tummy and once the baby is big enough, the baby will be born in the hospital. That is when we bring the baby home from the hospital. After a short pause, he asked […]

I’m a GOLDFISH!

It started out as a random topic of conversation. I was telling a friend how I love goldfish for they are kinda ‘stupid’. I mean, do you notice that goldfish move their entire body when they swim unlike other fishes that swim so effortlessly? I love that goldfish always look clueless happy and I can sit in front of the aquarium for hours just looking at them wiggling from left to right for the millionth time. My friend […]

Thann Sanctuary : My very FIRST full body massage experience

I’m a virgin when it comes to body massage. The only massage I’ve experienced were from the massage chair in my house and paling best pun from Darling :D I’ve never been to any spa for a full body massage. Kesian kan? Last Saturday, after jalan-jalan in 1Utama, we went to One World to lepak and saw a brochure of Thann Sanctuary. I jokingly asked Darling if I can go for the massage and surprisingly, […]

Ulcer.. urgh!!

Submerryn’s down and out. It started with me tending to Ethan and then got accidentally knocked on my lips by his head. The injury turned to ulcer and it became bigger and bigger with no sign of it recovering. Tried everything out there yet the ulcer shows no sign of improvement. Finally Darling got me this… Orrepaste. The cooling gel is very soothing on my lips. Crossing my fingers that this will do me some […]

Foot in mouth project

To put one’s foot in one’s mouth means to embarrass oneself by saying the wrong thing. But fret not as that is not the issue here today.  The past few days have been very hectic, running from one place to another and come night time, classes back to back. But I like to take things positively, it’s better to be busy than being left idle and grow cobwebs around you, right? Tonight I just don’t […]

Durian oh Durian

Durian – The King of fruits. You either love it or loathe it. To durian lovers, the aroma is invitingly fragrant while those who can’t stand the pungent smell equals it to rotten cheese! I love durian. I can eat lots and lots of durian! I can beat Darling anytime. My in-laws know how much I love durian. My parents know how much I love durian. Everybody knows how much I love durian! I went […]
