Here’s a video of him reading at 16 months old. *pls excuse my loud voice, did not realise i was being loud* :( And here is a video of him reading at 20 months old. Now that he’s over 3 years old, I introduced reading the phonetic way. I don’t usually use phonics to teach kids below 5 years old as […]

What happened to the EGG?!!

I went to bed at 12midnite sharp last night and woke up at 9.30am! Fuiyo I think I’ve repaid all my ‘sleep debts’! Woke up feeling fresh and upbeat. Sang all the way to the kitchen, dancing to the fridge, took out 3 eggs and happily broke one into the wok. BUT…. What happened to that egg? How come it turned out like that? Why so ‘flowery’ one? Normally my eggs will turn out nice […]

Bittergourd Soup

I frequent Asia Cafe @ Kota Damansara all the time. It is because Ethan loves the playground there. Whenever I am there I am sure to order the Bittergourd Soup noodles. Bittergourd Soup Noodles (RM5.50) I simply love their bittergourd soup noodles because of the plentiful ingredients in it. They are really generous with the variants of ingredients! Fishball Fish slices, lots and lots of it! Meatball Fried dumplings Fried fishball Tofu Minced meat All […]

QuaRiKa came!

I was born in Malacca but was never brought up there. I grew up in Singapore, Lumut and Sitiawan. My parents shifted back to Malacca after my Dad retired from the Navy. That explains why I have no friends in Malacca. What I do have though is a big happy extended family in Malacca. Every Chinese New Year will be awesome with them around. Come to think of it, each time I go back to […]

I held him in the air threatening to throw him away…

It’s dangerous to love a person too much as the moment you feel a tinge of rejection, it’ll crush you into pieces.. -Merryn- Ethan and I did not breathe down each other’s nose throughout our Chinese New Year break. He was occupied with his cousins and me, with mine. Darling took care of Ethan throughout the entire break. What happened was… It was the second day of CNY and Ethan was engrossed in playing with his […]

I’m down.. boo hoo..

Am finally back in Pea Jay. Though it’s home sweet home but.. am feeling a little bit melancholy. It had been a terrific 4 days spent in Malacca with my awesome family members and now I felt so… quiet!  The past 4 days had been noisy! A very fun noisy that is. I missed them all already! How can I not when I have the most superb nieces, cousins and err… what do you call […]

I was hooked to FB!

Keyword – was. I was hooked to FB throughout my stay here in Seremban and Malacca during the Chinese New Year break. Why? Because I’m so used to updating my blog every single day that I felt weird not updating anything during the break. Thank goodness for my iPhone I am able to be on Facebook 24/7. Well.. almost! I need to sleep too! :P With no access to the PC but having the wi-fi […]

Home is where the heart is

And my heart is in Malacca! Tonight is my last night here in Malacca. After spending several days here for the Chinese New Year break, I am heavyhearted to even think about going back to Pea Jay and back to routine. The thought of leaving the comfort of my parent’s home and the warmth of my ‘crazy’ relatives are just too much to handle. But that is life. We can’t always have the best of […]

Gosh I am so sleepy! We’ve been sleeping extremely late every night and woke up extra early. Now I have panda eyes! Tonight as usual we will be sleeping late again but  my eyes are so irritated. My contact lens are dry and am feeling extremely uncomfortable. I think I have to seriously look for a Lasik doctor. Gimme a minute, let me browse for Thierry Hufnagel.  I’ll be back!
