Toddler DIY activities: How to Make Watermelon Juice

One of the easiest juice to make is watermelon juice. All we need is a blender to get a refreshingly sweet and hydrating thirst quencher. It is so easy to make that Ayden now makes his own watermelon juice to go together with his lunch.  We don’t add sugar nor water to our watermelon juice. We love it as it is – 100% pure watermelon juice. You may add water if you find it to […]

School Holiday Kitchen Project: Making Popcorn

The kids are getting a little bored at home. We are supposed to go to Penang on Sunday but Ayden woke up feverish. I called up the resort and as expected the reservation department insisted to charge us one night cancellation fee. It is understandable as that is their standard procedure. However, after learning about Ayden, they transferred my call to their Manager on Duty and thankfully, he was kind enough to tell me to […]

Premium Concentrated Imperial Bird’s Nest

I was gardening when I noticed a bird’s nest on my plant. Someone must have stragetically placed it there but let’s not focus on that  I love bird’s nest. I started consuming bird’s nest when I was pregnant with Ethan 9 years ago. Being my first pregnancy, I wanted the best for my baby. Bird’s nest is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as it is considered a superior health food in many ways. I heard that […]
