China Pee Pee Boys

Darling and I went to China back in 2005. We climbed the Great Wall of China. Climbing wasn’t a problem but I almost burst my knee cap coming down from there >_< Why the sudden reminisce? Because I was cleaning my cabinet and came across this cutie: I remember seeing many of these cute little terracotta boys in China (or so we thought) that turns out to be clay statues of a naked little boy. […]

A Day in I-City

The last time we stepped foot in i-City Shah Alam was in 2012 on the first day opening of their Water World. You can read about our I-City Water World experience here. A month ago, we dropped by i-City again after visiting a friend in Klang and oh boy, the place is so different now. We are finally here at Red Carpet, Malaysia’s first all-stars interactive wax museum. No, we did not enter as I […]

Taman Santai Strawberry Park, Genting

A few weeks ago we brought Ayden up to Genting for the very first time. With Ethan, we used to frequent Genting twice a month but after I delivered Ayden, we stopped going up until recently. On our way down after spending 3D/2N in Awana Genting, we stopped by this Taman Santai Strawberry Genting. This strawberry farm is different from the one we’ve been with Ethan quite some time ago called Goh Tong Strawberry Park. […]

Ice Age Adventure 2014 @ Genting International Convention Centre

Darling and I love travelling. We used to travel at least once a year before we had kids but slowed down the moment we became parents. These days, we still travel but our priority is the kids. Before deciding on a place to go, we make sure that the place we are heading to will have plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied. Comfort is also our top priority and that means having easy […]

Awana Genting Hotel

We spent 3D/2N in Awana Genting Hotel last weekend. We chose Awana because the room is spacious and surrounded by greens. The room is spacious with two Queen size bed that we quickly converted into ONE HUGE bed by joining them together. The boys chilling and watching TV on our now super spacious bed :D Complimentary bottled mineral water, tea and coffee. Our room also comes with a long bath much to Ethan’s delight. Shaver, […]

Thistle Port Dickson

We went to Port Dickson again last weekend. This time to celebrate Ethan’s birthday. With Ayden still young, turning 11 month old this month end, we do not even bother to travel anywhere far as it will be very tiring for US as well as Ayden himself. Therefore when Darling told Ethan that he can pick a place to go for his birthday, Darling also reminded him that he is only allowed to choose a […]

Coins for Cuti-Cuti Malaysia

We got so bored the other day that I took out all the coins we have at home and got Ethan to count them. Ayden wanted to play with those coins but I dont let him. I just let him touch them and took them away immediately. It took Ethan forever to arrange those coins in groups of RM1. After about a week, Ethan managed to fill one bottle full and another bottle half. The […]

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 […]

My birthday bash @ Philea Resort & Spa, Malacca

Oh my goodness, I just realised I haven’t publish this post. It was supposed to be published last month but I’ve been so caught up with Chinese New Year Ang Pow lantern workshops that I absolutely forgotten to click PUBLISH! >_< My birthday was in December and I had a private birthday party in Philea Resort & Spa in my hometown, Malacca.  Some of my friends. I bet you can name some of them :D […]

How To Fold The Korean Lamb Head Towel (Jjimjilbang)

 I tell you one thing. When I first saw a friend folding this towel for her baby, I have no idea that this is the famous lamb head towels that you see in Korean drama series. My idea of Korea is Psy’s Gangnam Style. That’s it. Only that. I’m not a K-pop fan or anything so you can understand my lack of intelligence in regards to that part of the world. But now I […]

Romantic vacation at Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka

I remember back in 2011, Darling, Ethan and I spent an unforgettable weekend at Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh Melaka. Back then we stayed in their Pavilion Room. You can read all about it here. Last weekend, we went back there again to have an early birthday celebration but I shall blog more about that later as I am more excited to share how romantic it was this time our stay in their Philea […]

Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa

It’s the year end and I am sure most of us have holiday plans all planned out waiting to be executed. With Ayden around we do not want to be travelling too far so we decided on a quick retreat about an hour away from home recently. Our choice of destination – Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa, soon they’ll be known as AVANI Sepang GoldCoast Resort. A piece of heaven on Earth but […]

Genting Theme Park will be replaced by Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park

Darling, Ethan and I all have Genting’s Annual Passport but Darling’s and mine expired some time ago. We wanted to renew it but were not allowed. We were quite pissed then as Ethan’s passport is still valid and without ours, we have to fork out a large sum of money to enter the Theme Park together. I brought the matter up to the management and was told that the Theme Park will be closed sometime […]

World Club Room @ Genting

Not too long before Chinese New Year, we went up to Genting for the weekend. We don’t usually stay the night when we make a trip up there but this time we did and the place we stayed was in World Club Room at First World.  Our impression of First World used to be ‘the largest hotel with the smallest room’ in Genting but this time we were proven extremely wrong!  As we entered our […]

Gold Coast Morib Resort

This year, my parents did not celebrate Chinese New Year in Malacca due to the passing of the family’s matriarch last year. My eldest sister (and family) took my parents to Gold Coast Morib Resort instead. We joined them on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year. Though we just had lunch before pushing off to Morib, we arrived just in time as my family were about to have lunch so we ate together much […]

Strawberry Park Goh Tong Highland Garden, Genting

We were up in Genting last weekend. This time we stayed a night. Will talk about our stay later as today I just wanted to share our stop at this Strawberry Park in Goh Tong Highland Garden. We passed this place each time we come down from Genting but every time it is at night but last weekend, we went down in the evening so we took that golden opportunity to stop here. Goh Tong […]

Klebang Original Coconut Shake

I’ve been wanting to try the famous Klebang Original Coconut Shake since like forever but never got the chance even though it’s not very far away from my parents’ place. It’s like each time I am back in Malacca and pestered any of my relatives to bring me there, they’ll go, “but the queue is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long!” Nobody wants to bring me there. I would have forced Darling to bring me there IF only I […]

Hippopotamus @ Singapore Zoo

After visiting our local zoo and seeing how sad all the caged monkeys and the rest of the animals are, we don’t really quite like zoos anymore until we came across Singapore Zoo. Their Orang Utans there are free-ranged and dangled freely on trees. All other animals have their own spacious enclosures and no one was in cages. Ethan especially loves the hippopotamus. He has never imagined a hippo to be so graceful until he […]

Genting Sky Venture

Genting Sky Venture, the one and only wind tunnel in Asia has been in Genting for quite some time, located at Level T2A, First World Plaza, but I’ve never got the guts to try it until recently.  I went first while Darling looked after Ethan. We changed into our suit (I love my pink jumpsuit) and were briefed on the sign language and also instructed on the basic of flying. Lockers are provided for you […]

The MUST drink in Singapore

Singapore has a tropical climate so the island is warm and humid throughout the year.  The average temperature is around 31oC so it’s important to drink enough water to keep you hydrated. What happens if you run out of drinking water? Fret not as you can always do this: Just a short update since most of us are still in holiday mood ^_^

Christmas lights in Sunway

Remember my post here saying that I’m unimpressed with the Christmas street lighting of Orchard Road, Singapore? Well, that is because we have a much more colorful street lighting in Sunway! Every year without fail we’ll take a leisurely stroll along the cheerful and brightly lit Sunway street. This year is no exception. Love this Christmas tree. It’s quite hard to photograph this tree as people kept surrounding it for pictures too. Can you see […]

Virgin Rollercoaster Ride @ Universal Studio Singapore

We went to Universal Studio Singapore again (read about our FIRST trip there two years ago here) and this time we enjoyed more as Ethan can ride most of the thrill rides compared to when he was 3 years old. Reunited with the cute Puss In Boots <3 This trip also marks the very first time Ethan rode on a rollercoaster! I was hesitant initially but he insisted that he is big enough for all […]

Feeding giraffes at Singapore Zoo

During our recent Singapore trip, we went to the Singapore Zoo on Day 2 for the much anticipated elephant ride. Never did it occurred to me that Ethan will end up feeding giraffes as well!  We saw people feeding giraffes for a fee of $5. Ethan was curious and wanted to feed them too! >_< It scares the heck out of me seeing that super tall creature with their heads hovering above Ethan.  But that […]

Crane Dance, Resort World Sentosa Singapore

On our first night in Singapore, we were thankful that the weather is beautiful with no rain to make it possible for us to catch the much anticipated Crane Dance in Resort World Sentosa. We took the Angry Birds Cable Car to Sentosa. The show is scheduled at 9pm but tourists lingered around the area as early as 8pm! We went to take our seat at 8.45pm after having our dinner. At 9pm sharp, a burst of fireworks lit […]

Elephant Ride, Singapore Zoo

The last time we were in Singapore 2 years ago, we went to the Night Safari. We got to see animals in the dark but we never get to experience the beauty of Singapore Zoo as it was too dark. This time around, we visited the Zoo during the day and I must say that I’m pretty impressed with Singapore Zoo. None of the animals (especially monkeys and orang utans) are in a cage! They all have their own nice […]
