What is Python and why is it important?

What is PYTHON? I am not computer savvy so I have no idea what PYTHON is until recently. We were all locked at home due to the pandemic, bored to tears and then I saw it – in my email, a promotion for e-learning on Python from 5T3M. I asked my boys if they are game to give it a try and they looked at me wide eyed, as clueless as myself. Since we have […]


Fun and Educational DINOSAUR THEMED family board games

How is the New Normal treating you? For me and the boys, we still spend most of our time at home with the only time we are out is to school and back. Spending endless time at home also means having in hand lots and lots of games to keep us occupied. When I say games, I don’t mean online games but physical games that we can play together as a family. These are some […]


Ayden’s Science Presentation Video

After a month of staying home and about 2 weeks learning from home, the boys are getting comfortable with online learning. Big brother Ethan has to wake up early on certain days for online lessons but the rest of us sleep in till noon 😅 Lil’ Ayden has more homework and video assignments to do compared to Ethan. Today I’m sharing one of his assignment video. He learns Science in Mandarin as he is in […]


All About Cubing

The only thing Ethan talks about these days are cubes, football and drums. So to break into his world, I made myself learn one of his language ie cubing. The other day,  I tried to solve the 3×3 while Ethan tries to solve as many cubes as possible before I am done. Did I manage to solve the 3×3? How many cubes did Ethan manage to solve while I was working on my 3×3? Let’s […]


Tips for Buying the Right School Shoes

I can’t believe I am saying this but WHITE canvas shoes will soon be a thing of the past in schools in Malaysia. I have been holding on to it for the longest time ever since our Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik announced that all students will wear black shoes in the near future. I have always loved white shoes. I mean we were not given a choice back then. Love it or hate it, […]


5 Tips For Buying School Uniforms This “BACK TO SCHOOL” Season

It is that time of the year again to start getting everything ready for the next academic year. It is wise to spend wisely as there will be a lot of stuffs to purchase. One of the first and most important things that comes to mind is school uniform. When we consider that school children spend at least 6 hours a day wearing their uniforms in our hot and humid weather, we know that this […]


Sunway Lagoon | World Animal Day 2019 | Zoomanji Challenge

We took a walk on the wild side for an edutaining experience at Sunway Lagoon during the launch of World Animal Day 2019 last Saturday, 4 October 2019. Mr. Sean Choo, GM of Sunway Lagoon also announced its part in the conservation works to save river terrapins by adopting several river terrapins from the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia. Dr Chen Pelf Nyok gave a talk about the critically endangered river terrapins. In order to […]


The plan for Ethan’s secondary school journey

You know that feeling when you think you’ve got it all planned out and then all out of sudden it’s like as if your world has been shaken like a snow globe and everything got messed up? That’s me at the moment.  And it is regarding Ethan’s secondary school journey. You see, he’ll be sitting for his UPSR this September. Last week, he brought home a form for us to select the secondary school to […]


Instill The Love of Reading In Your Child

How do you guide your child to master languages other than their mother tongue? For me, I expose my boys to stories as well as videos. I can’t help them with Mandarin so I send them to enrichment classes but I personally guide them to read, write and speak in Bahasa Malaysia. I instill the love of reading in the boys from the very beginning when they were young. I make bedtime stories interesting. I […]


Reinvent Learning: Every Home Needs a Printer

Ethan’s school had recently held a briefing for parents whose children will be sitting for the UPSR exam this September. The aim of the talk is to brief parents on the latest UPSR format so we can guide our children better during revision time with them. While it is tougher today to sit for UPSR as the questions can be more challenging, with the right guidance and support, it is not impossible for our children […]


All About Myself

The kindergarten Ayden goes to has thematic learning whereby they focused on one particular theme for the entire month. The theme for February is All About Myself and the first thing he learned was how a person is ‘created’. His teacher told stories about how Daddies will eject many swimming champions that look like tadpoles yet are not really tadpoles and how they raced with all their might to reach the ‘egg’ from the Mommies. […]


Ayden’s First Week at Kindergarten

Ayden experienced 3 days of kindy last week. It is his first time attending preschool. He is the only one in his class without a uniform as the rest of the children are existing students in that school since last year or maybe a couple of years before. I decided to send him to a year of kindergarten to let him experience sports day as well as graduation concert as he will be going to […]


Separation Anxiety – How to overcome it

It is the first day of school. Many young children are attending school for the very first time. To some of these children, it may be the first time they are separated from their parents. They may experience fear or anxiety when being parted from their parents or carers. I was a teacher before giving up my job to be a stay at home mom. Let me share with you my fair share of experience on […]


End of 2018 academic calendar

It’s the final day of 2018 academic calendar. Ethan bids farewell to some of his classmates as the school reshuffled their classes hence some of them won’t be in the same class next year.  Ethan did good, finishing in the Top 3 in his class as well as for the entire Primary 5.  He was also more active this year, competing and winning several Science and Art contests. Next year will be a tough one […]


A look into STEM Education

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines: Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications. It is the end of the academic year for 2018 hence I took the advantage to sign Ethan up for a Parent-Kid Experimental Workshop with me at […]


Möbi Kids | Learning Math the FUN way

Ayden has a little blue whale pouch that he brings everywhere he goes these days. In that cute little pouch is Möbi Kids number tiles and Möbi Activity Booklet. WHAT IS MÖBI KIDS? Möbi Kids is a fun, gentle and collaborative math game by the inventors of Mobi – The Numerical Tile Game in a Whale Pouch! Möbi Kids is the perfect introduction to math for the little ones – fun, simple and multi-coloured.  HOW TO PLAY? Each player […]



I dislike last-minute shopping. I always prepare stuffs early especially when it comes to special occasions such as festive celebrations and school related items. I prefer to shop early to avoid the massive crowd closer to school reopening. Would you believe it if I tell you that I’ve settled Ethan’s school uniform as well as school shoes for next year? We went shopping last weekend and I am so relieved that everything is already sorted […]


Drum with Ayden: Uptown Funk

Ayden is into the 4th month of learning the drums and has shown vast improvements as he practices regularly at home. This is the best age to be learning music as he has all the time in the world. He is not burdened with school nor homeworks so he can enjoy playing the drums as and when he wishes. Ayden learned another song over the week. It is his favourite song – Uptown Funk. I […]


Read with Ayden: Peppa’s Busy Day

I homeschool Ayden. I think I have said that too many times. The benefit of homeschooling is we have the leisure of time in our hands. It is up to me to draw up a schedule for little Ayden and learning is not confined to home only. I bring him out on week days when there is lesser crowd in the mall. We go to the bookstore to read some books. Sometimes we’ll buy the […]


Homeschooling Ayden – Belajar Mengeja dan Membaca

It’s been a week since I last updated my blog. Our entire nation is having ELECTION fever and now that we have created history and have a brand new government, all eyes are glued on our handphones for constant updates. I checked my Whatsapp and various news portals every 5 minutes till I have no time nor interest to blog as I doubt anyone is keen to read anything other than our country’s political updates […]

Homeschooling Ayden | Mathematics | Addition

I homeschool elder brother Ethan during his preschool years. I’m doing the same with little Ayden presently. I wonder how other young children aged 4-5 years old are able to learn in a classroom seating environment as from my observation, both my boys require tremendous individual attention during their formative years. What I love about homeschooling is they can learn at their own pace, anywhere and anytime of the day. This way, Ayden gets ample […]


Childhood Obesity and Ways to Prevent and Overcome It

Alright, where do I start? I was invited by Bernama to be one of their esteemed panelists for their LIVE, English language talk show, ‘The Nation’ on Monday, 12th February 2018, speaking about CHILDHOOD OBESITY IN MALAYSIA.  As I’ve mentioned in my previous blog posts, I wasn’t feeling well the past weeks with me and the boys down with some kind of bug going around but this is a topic I feel strongly about. I advocate outdoor playtime […]

A Visit To The Fire Station

We visited the fire station at Sri Hartamas on Sunday. The excursion was arranged by Ayden’s Mandarin enrichment school. He had been looking forward to this for weeks since he first found out about it. It’s so cute to see they actually have uniforms for the little ones. This is even more awesome than Kidzania because everything here is REAL! Ayden brought his fire truck toy along to this excursion. He wanted his little fire […]
