Drummer Ethan’s dream come true: Meeting Mad August

1st August 2019 This date will forever be embedded in Ethan’s memory as this is the day he got to meet his idols – the members of the awesome rock band Mad August in person. When I posted some pictures on my FB yesterday, a friend commented, “They are like the Malaysia version of Beyond now” and I must agree with him.  So not only Ethan got to meet them, he also had the privilege […]


Max Crumbly Series Book Review

I’m so lucky both my boys love reading. I’m sure they got that trait from me because the only book their father reads is FACEbook! Anyway, Ethan is currently reading the first of 3 books of #MaxCrumbly series from #1 New York Times best selling Dork Diaries author Rachel Renée Russell. It tells the daily ups and downs of Max Crumbly in middle school. While Ethan is in school, I took the opportunity to read these books too so […]


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 […]


Ethan is 12!

Time flies. My first born turned 12 yesterday. I remember his every birthdays like it was just yesterday. 12 years with him yet I still can’t get it right at times. Parenting is hard. I never know if the decision we make is correct or not yet we still have to do it. It is a journey of trials and errors but I am glad together, we are usually able to overcome the obstacles blocking […]


Durian Oh Durian

It’s my favourite indulgence. If you know me well, you’ll know that I watch what I eat. I don’t eat sugary stuffs. I don’t drink sodas. I am not even bothered by the current bubble tea craze.  BUT when it comes to durians, I have no restrictions whatsoever. I am crazy over durians. I can eat it for breakfast, lunch AND dinner *burp* Last month I was so craving for durians that I pestered Darling […]


Growing Pineapple in A Pot

I bought a whole pineapple from a grocer store about 3 years ago. A good breed pineapple. I remember it was selling at RM8.90 per fruit. It was very juicy and sweet. I took the crown, placed it in a pot and left it there in my porch.  I did not tend to it. I simply left it there to fend for itself as I wasn’t sure if it will bear any fruit or not […]


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 […]


Movie Time: Spider-Man: Far From Home

Hello! Wow, I’ve not updated my blog for quite some time now. I’ve been busy sorting pictures to be printed on our photobooks. You see, the thing about digital pictures is I got lazy to print them out and has been keeping them in my hard drive for ages. The last we printed anything was when Ethan was a year old. But I do have some of the boys’ current pictures that I printed myself […]


Hari Raya Art & Craft

A couple of weeks ago, on a Saturday when big brother Ethan was busy with taekwondo, we brought little Ayden to a Hari Raya open house by a property developer.  Besides having a tour of their show houses, there were also a couple of complementary art and craft activities for the little ones.  Little Ayden painted this batik kampung house. It is his first time to complete a batik painting entirely on his own as […]


Flying with Children | Tips and Tricks to make it work

You see people flying so much, you’d think it’s fun. Then the day comes when it’s your turn to fly and you get all excited and ready to go. But there is one problem. You are not flying solo. You have young children flying together. The kids are equally excited to fly with you. They want to experience the joy of travel and experience for real what they only see in pictures prior to this. […]


Impiana Private Villas Kata Noi Phuket, Thailand

We don’t need a crystal ball to help us decide our holiday destination when we have such a gorgeous beach with crystal clear water waiting for us at Kata Noi. Kata Noi Beach is a beautiful little bay along Phuket’s west coast with one of the best beaches on the island. The above picture is raw and unedited. Look at that amazingly clear and inviting sea water. Located just south of the main Kata Beach, […]


Impiana Resort Patong Phuket | Beach Front Resort in Patong

“IF WE WERE MEANT TO STAY IN ONE PLACE, WE’D HAVE ROOTS INSTEAD OF FEET”, Rachel Wolchin once said. So travel we did and we chose Phuket again this time for its close vicinity to Malaysia and convenience to fly there direct. We stayed at Impiana Resort Patong Phuket, one of the only 3 beachfront resorts at Patong beach, the most famous beach in Phuket. Patong is a bustling town with its wide variety of […]


Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut | What to DO | Where to EAT

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature” – Joseph Campbell And we found just the perfect match for our heartbeats right here at Swiss-Garden Beach Resort Damai Laut. A hidden gem; secluded but not difficult to find, we were greeted with lush greenery upon arrival. We took advantage of the Ramadan room promo where rooms are selling from as low as […]

Our Mother’s Day Lunch

It was Mother’s Day weekend. Ethan had just completed his mid term exam so we get to go back Melaka to celebrate with my parents.  We brought my parents out for lunch on Sunday at their favourite place, TWS. My parents love the food here and they frequent this place often but it is the first for me and the boys.  My parent’s regular drink here is the large mug of carrot milk. When I […]


What is Daun Bawang in English?

What do you call daun bawang in English? I call it spring onion. Or is it scallion? Or green onion? Whatever the name is, I don’t or should I say I’ve never buy them. I plant them myself as they are one of the easiest to grow our own. I grow them in the car porch in milk cartons… And also in the kitchen for easier access when I need them quickly while cooking. Besides […]


Places in kitchen for wallpaper

Even the kitchen needs some makeover to look aesthetically beautiful and combining with wallpapers, they are not thing of the past. You could use some wallpapers to decorate as beautifully and stylish as ever. There are plentiful of patterned or colourful wallpaper in the market and you could get your interior designer from Dakota Crescent or Bukit Merah. You can get your wallpaper up behind your oven, on your ceiling or inside your pantry. Here […]


Great Bargains, Huge Discounts in Langkawi with the Langkawi Island Pass

We were in Langkawi during the Deepavali holiday in November last year. The first thing we did upon touching down at the airport was to grab a Langkawi Island Pass from Maystar Car Rental (Counter 3) and use it to offset RM50 off our car rental bill. When I posted the above picture of our iPass on Facebook, I received many messages from our readers asking us for more information. I soon realised that not […]


Fractional Laser Procedure | Premier Clinic

Since I started treatment for my acne scars three weeks ago, I know I won’t stop at just PRP. You can read about PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) procedure in my earlier post. Dr Vanessa already told me I will need more than just PRP for my scars and suggested Subcision or Laser treatments but I wasn’t ready for neither of them at that time. AFTER PRP Platelet Rich Plasma injection helped to a certain extend […]


Herbal Hair Treatment for Grey Hair, Itchy Scalp and Hair Loss

I don’t understand why people would want to bleach their hair. Here I am struggling to get rid of strands of my greying hair while others opt to decolourize their perfectly healthy hair. I always thought I have it under control though as I get Ethan to help me pluck them during his free time. Recently though, Ethan told me I may go bald if he were to pluck all my grey hair away. I […]


Quick & Easy Sardine Puff Recipe

Ayden is allowed to bring snacks to school every Wednesday. I’m at my wits end trying to think of what to let him share with his friends once a week. Today, I decided to get him bake his own sardine puff and if it is a success, he’ll bake this for his friends this Wednesday. True enough, it is a HUGE success because we used store bought pastry and canned sardine 😁 Ingredients: Frozen Puff pastry […]


Kid Normal Series Book Review

Let’s talk about what Ethan is reading at the moment. He’s over the Wimpy Kid (he has read them all) and is now into Kid Normal. These hilarious adventure series are the first from popular radio personalities Greg James and Chris Smith, featuring brilliant illustrations by Erica Salcedo. The first book – Kid Normal introduces us to 11 year old Murph Cooper reluctantly trying to adjust to moving to a new place (again) and attending […]


My Ultherapy Journey | Final Update – RESULTS after 6 months

I turned 41 last December and I feel proud about it! I used to be terrified to reveal my age as it makes me conscious about my beauty, which matters a lot to me. Age fades beauty and aesthetically, I noticed the skin on my cheeks start to sag and my jawline less defined. This bothered me but it was not worth going under the knife for it. Though it may not be visible, but […]


NEUTRA Reflexology & Spa

We’ve had a crazily hectic month with the house repainting and re-roofing works and some minor renovation going on at home. I bought the Bronze Pack earlier this year and quickly arranged for a well-deserving pampering session for our family to destress and just to get away from it all; the noise, the mess… We took a drive to Lucky Garden Bangsar to this venue: NEUTRA Reflexology & Spa #2 Lorong Ara Kiri Dua Lucky […]
