A Fat Bloody Bugger

This is a fat bloody bugger. Bloody, why so harsh? I said bloody because it had just treated itself to a delicious buffet meal and is now filled with blood. It’s a bugger because it’s a bug.. er wait, I think it is an insect, oh whatever! Just want to let you know that this fat mozzie had just feasted on Ethan! Just look at my poor boy! Four bites altogether! Being the SAHM who […]

His sleeping aid

As he grows older, this ‘macho’ boy doesn’t want to be patted to sleep anymore. All he need are his pillow and bolster and there he goes to sleep. But most of the time, this boy is unable to sleep. Why? Because he doesn’t know how to keep his eyes shut! Seriously! He will force them close, but after sometime, they ended up open again! And this often frustrates him. So last night, I decided […]

My heartache

The other day Darling and I were playing with Ethan when I suddenly noticed his gum bled yet again. This time the blood dripped on Ethan’s tee. It was such a heartache to see him like that. Can you see the blood stain on his tee?

Hotlink Loves Me

Somebody from Hotlink must have really loves me. Remember I blogged about them rewarding me by extending my validity period for 6 months? Yesterday, I got another sms from them. This time, they top up my account with RM3! Can you imagine my surprise? LOL! Why is Hotlink getting very generous with me? And how come people I know do not receive such rewards? Somebody must have really love me and I think it is […]

Jinx

Yesterday I was happily telling you guys that Ethan was getting better. And I *touched wood* while blogging bout it too. And just as I was switching off my pc to go get a good nite’s rest, that little fella’s gum bled! And now his gums are all swollen, some of his teeth are almost hidden by the gums! I can’t imagine the pain he is going through. But he is one little fighter! He […]

Cataflam

Cataflam. This is what helps soothe Ethan’s throat and tongue ulcer for the past 3 days. This is also similar with Voltaren suppository. So when Ethan’s taking this, I am not suppose to insert any supp to him in case his fever go very high up again. Though I have to say, it is so tough to administer this cataflam drops into Ethan’s mouth. I am suppose to give 10 drops 8 hourly. But I […]

There I was… half-naked

I was at my favourite Mamak joint, having my favourite Sour sop drink, with my favourite circle of friends. Then I had to answer Nature’s call. And before I knew it, I was doing “IT” in the middle of everyone, in the middle of everything! And there I was, standing half-naked in front of everyone! Darn this bloody dream! I have been having this kind of dreams quite frequent these days. What the heck is […]

Throat and Tongue Ulcer

Today marked the 6th day Ethan is suffering from high fever. He has not been eating much. He totally rejects porridge. He rejected porridge since 12 months old and has been rejecting it until today. He doesn’t seem to be wanting his milk too. Every time he is sick, I’ll temporary switch his milk to lactose-free type. I use Isomil EyeQ Advance. So today we brought him to the paed again as it is way […]

Hotlink Gift – Is this for REAL?

I am using Hotlink Prepaid. Each time my validity period expires, I do not top-up immediately. I usually wait for a week or two until Hotlink Gift offers me some kind of reward for topping up. Mostly what I got from them are free sms bonus or free air time. Last week, my validity period expired again and as usual I did not top up. I stay at home, as long as people can still […]

Not a good day…

My day doesn’t start off too well today. 9am – Ethan woke up feverish and very hungry demanding for milk. After feeding him his milk, he puked all over the bed! 9.15am – After cleaning up everything and prepared his breakfast, Darling gave him a glass of honey. He puked on the sofa! 9.30am – Load the washing machine with the bed sheets, protector, pillow case and all. 10.00am- Tried feeding him some solid food. […]

Fever again…

This is Ethan today. We sent him for his Chicken pox vaccination last Friday. It has been say, 5 days and he was alright all along. Until last night, he suddenly developed fever. I am not sure if this fever has anything to do with the vaccination… Haih…

Raging Rashes

A fortnight ago, Ethan suffered bad neck rash. But after applying some creams, he is as good as new in no time. Yesterday, he suffered bad rash around his hairline. It was very red and I think painful all along the forehead near his hairline. It became worst after his playground routine. Sigh. I applied the creams that I used previously and today, the rashes are all gone again! So I would like to share […]

Please, please, piss, piss…

Every evening I will bring Ethan to the playground. Lately he loves climbing up and sliding down the slide, especially the ‘tunnel’ type. Yesterday, as he was about to climb up the slide, a little girl, 3 years of age, sat there, blocking him. We knew her as she was also a regular @ the playground. She is a special child, she is deaf. I let them be. I stepped back around 3 metres away […]

Volleyball vs Boobs

Was lying down playing with Ethan when he pointed to my chest and said “Volleyball”. I looked at Darling and both of us were so surprised! You see, I was wearing a Giordano tee that has many types of sports printed on it and so happen that Ethan was pointing to the word “Volleyball” when he said that! And so happen that for the past two weeks we had been teaching him to play volleyball! […]

A chick HATCHED in my FRIDGE!!!

There was once I kept the eggs in my fridge for way too long that they turn bad. Darling jokingly told me that luckily they turn bad or else I would have found chicks in my fridge! Seriously, can they hatch in the cold fridge? LOL! Anyways, to cut long story short, that incident inspired me to do this craft. See full story here.

The Soup Dance

Ethan loves soup. Each time I boiled soup, he will be tugging my feet anxiously for some. I would normally chase him out of the kitchen as it is hot and dangerous to be tugging at my feet when I am handling hot stuff. And as routine, he will go and sit on the dining chair with his favourite book waiting for his soup. And I will quietly place the bowl of soup in front […]

Spaghetti a’la ME

On weekends, I sometimes gets lazy to cook a complete dish meal. So I would normally go for something rather simple such as spaghetti. Eversince Ethan eats whatever we eat, I rarely use the readymade spaghetti sauce I normally use previously. What happens now is a more pathetic self-made sauce that consists of lots of blended fresh tomatoes and some carrots, garlic, onion, mushroom and a little salt for seasoning. Sometimes, I leave some chicken […]

What she got…

Mother’s Day. People around the world will normally place an order for the most beautiful and yummiest cake for their mom. But for Darling, he got his mom one and the half dozen of Pau~s and quite a number of Loh Mai Kai~s. Why? Because my MIL is the typical Chinese who loves everything Oriental. Give her the yummiest cake and most likely she won’t savour it. So, for her special day, she got it […]

Proud to be a Baba Nyonya

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Happy Mother’s Day mommy! I was back in Malacca last week and as we chatted the topic came to our origin. My mother is a Baba Nyonya Melaka. Ask any true Nyonya what is their prized possession and I can guarantee you their answer will easily be their Kebaya and their beaded sandals! (Not forgetting their ‘turun–temurun‘ family recipes) So this post is a tribute to my Mom, […]

What he really, really, really likes!

We (Darling, Ethan and I) have cheese sandwich EVERY weekday mornings. It has always been bread, cheese, cucumber and tomatoes for breakfast, though weekdays only. And most of the time we take plain white bread. I like wholemeal but it tends to be a little bit coarse and dry for Ethan. Occasionally we like to indulge in the bread that comes with additional fruits or fibre in it. And THEN, that day, Darling saw this… […]

You Are My Sunshine

Ethan loves it when I sing “You Are My Sunshine” to him. And since it is so scorching hot these days, I’ve decided to do this craft with him. He loves it so much, he did almost 60% of it himself. Hop onto my craft blog here to see full details.

All about EGGS

I boiled some hard boiled eggs the other day and left it on the table to cool. Darling was way too helpful when he took the cooled eggs (with the shell still intact) and kept it back in the fridge! OMG! When I asked him which was the egg that I have boiled, he couldn’t remember! What was I suppose to do? Crack open all the eggs or boiled them all over again? But what […]

Origami Dog and Crab

Ethan’s a pro now when it comes to Origami. He is able to take instructions pretty well I dare say. The fact that this Origami Dog is so simple; you can even do it with your eyes close, helps too. From this moment onwards, all my crafts postings will be posted in details in my new craft blog here. And only crafts that involve Ethan will be published here. To see the complete steps for […]

Fish Spa

Walk into any major shopping mall and you’ll definitely see at least one or two fish spas around. No, no, no, I’m not talking about a spa for fish! I’m talking about the spa for your feet by the fish! Ethan just loves looking at the fish nibbling on people’s feet! Yucks! I personally have never tried it. Not a fan of soaking my feet into the water where many other ‘yucky’ feet have dipped […]

Beautifying the UGLY peacock

Remember I said Ethan loves me to draw him something while he is having his meals? Well, his favourite at the moment is creating peacocks from his hand print. I will help him outline his palms and then add in the body to create quite an ugly peacock. Ethan will then take the colours to ‘beautify‘ the peacock. Alas, the end result of the supposedly ‘beautiful’ peacock. ^^

The only way I can read the papers

I have a habit of reading newspapers on the floor. But nowadays it is not so easy to read anymore as I have an ‘inspector‘ who will inspect the paper and stand or sit on it as he wishes (especially when I am reading!). In order to keep him occupied and not disturb me when I am reading, I always have a pen handy to circle words that he knows and let him read it. […]

We are OK now

Thank you so much for all your wishes. I’m touching wood now saying that we are all ok today. Though I had diarrhoea this morning, it seems to subside a little now. Darling’s still a little bit weak, with some slight imbalance now and then. Ethan took his last flu medicine at 11am and is fine now. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that these two men in my life will be fine by Friday […]

It’s fever now

Last night Ethan woke up at 3am again. This time with high fever. He couldn’t open his eyes but I ‘forced‘ him to take his milk and some bread so that I can feed him his fever med. He refused to let me put the fever patch on his forehead, don’t know why. It’s not the first time using it, but somehow, this time he rejected it totally, screaming his lungs out requesting for it […]

All’s not well with Ethan

Ethan is showing signs of runny nose. Went to Jusco this evening and the whole time, his left nostril is wet. Wipe it away, wet again. The night before, he suffered his first insomnia. His normal bedtime is around 10pm. Last nite, up to 11pm he refuses to sleep. I finally force him to close his eyes and at 11.30pm he finally sleeps. But at 2am, just when Darling and I are about to go […]

The First Cut

Ethan experienced his first deep cut near his ankle today. Everything’s not so good with him recently. With the heat wave and now this. The thing is, he was calmer than Mummy and Daddy! We did not even notice when, where or how he got his cut. Only when he went to Darling and said “Pain, there” (pointing to his ankle) did Darling realise he was bleeding. I dare not even look, so Darling did […]

Which bank’s good for PayPal?

I want to have my own PayPal account, but I don’t have my own credit card. All my cards are subs from Darling. Pathetic eh? Darling is not a fan of online banking, shopping or anything online for that matters. He doesn’t even READ my blog! He forbids me to use the card for my PayPal account no matter how much I persuaded him. After seeking advise from top, down, left and right, Mummy Moon […]

Fighting off heatiness

It’s so ridiculously hot this week. Darling’s fighting a losing battle with the on and off throat irritation. Ethan has got rashes all over his back. Starting from the lower back, now spreading fast to the upper back and the back of his neck. Tried applying calamine and rash creams but nothing work. When everything fails, I try the alternative way. Was in 1 Utama yesterday. The perks of being a housewife is being able […]

Multiplication Made Easy (Table 11)

Today’s lucky number is 11. Any single digit multiplied by eleven will result in the double up of the said single digit. 1 x 11 = 112 x 11 = 223 x 11 = 33……9 x 11 = 99 The interesting part is multiplying double or more digits by eleven. Example 263 x 11=?Take 263. 2 being the first number and 3 being the last number.263 x 112 + 6 + 3 x 11Bring down […]

Cute Sandwich

On weekends, I can choose NOT to cook. We can go out to eat. And if I don’t cook, I’ll have more time to spend with Ethan. And when I have more time with him, what do I do? Teach him to cook! LOL. Not really. All I did was let him prepare his own sandwich for breakfast. These are Ethan’s latest favourite items. They are egg moulds that doubles as sandwich cutters. His favourite […]

So Dark!

Was in the playroom. Soon, it was dinner time. Persuaded the little one to get to the dining room for dinner. He refused. I was running late with my next class commencing in just half an hours time. Still not moving out from that room. Thought of using the ‘scare’ tactic. I switched off the lights and closed the door, leaving him all alone in that dark room. Waited outside for him to shout and […]

Multiplication made easy

I am not a genius when it comes to the timetables. A student of mine recently taught me this method for the multiplication of 6’s. Your regular clock will come in handy for this. 1 x 6 = ?Look at your clock. The minute hand must be on the number that will be multiplied with 6. In this case, it is 1. If the minute hand is at number 1, how many minutes does that […]

Now Everyone Can Draw :)

As Ethan is closer to two years old, he is getting ‘naughtier’. I find it more and more challenging to feed him everyday as it is difficult to get him to stay put for long. He no longer wants to be in his high chair, so I let him stand on the ordinary dining chair. But I really need to entertain him otherwise he’ll be climbing the table and all! One way I can keep […]

Sugar Apple

I finally found a type of fruit that sparks Ethan’s interest to the extend that he is willing to eat it on its own! It is none other than the delicious Sugar Apple! (Or Buah Nona as it is famously known in Malaysia). I think he doesn’t realise he was eating a fruit! I read somewhere on the net that flesh can be pressed through a sieve to eliminate the seeds and is then added […]

Salted Egg Super Man!

I don’t speak Cantonese, neither do I speak Mandarin nor any Chinese dialect for all that matters. But someone once told me that the above thingy is also called “Salted Egg Super Man” in Canto. To me, all I know is that it is an “AutaMan“. I seriously hate it so much! But somehow, Ethan is fascinated by it. He never watched that cartoon on tv before. Dunno why, he just loved it when he […]

How do I clean these hard to reach places?

Ethan has a water tumbler like the above. The problem is, I find it difficult to clean the entire bottle properly. It has so many areas that I find impossible to reach. Forget about the nipple brush, it can’t even fit in. I ended up using tooth pick to clean certain areas but find it not doing a good enough job. Several times, I ended up disposing the tumbler away when I find that it […]

But at the moment, I prefer to DIM as it is cheaper and I can customise it to my liking. Ethan’s favourite as he can ‘peel’ off all the words and zap it back in place… …because I use valcro to place them together. made of […]

And he eats happily ever after…

Once upon a time ago, Ethan was a fruit lover. He will never reject fruits of any kind if I popped them into his mouth. He will even self-feed on them. Then suddenly, the magic was gone. He started to reject them. He rejects them so hard to the point that he will spit it all out after I ‘forced’ them into his mouth. He will even run and hide to a land far far […]

How to start your child on reading (Intro)

Good Times, Bad Times

During the good times, I had a beautiful house I call my home. It comes with my favourite jacuzzi where I can ‘wash’ my stress away. But then, the economy slows down.

Stolen Sweets Are Sweeter

1st April 2009. Darling told me NOT to go online for there were reports of some April Fool’s virus going around. He warned me that if our desktop were to get infected, it will be MY entire fault and I will have to rectify it at my own cost! Of course, being a 90% computer idiot, I obliged (without a fight!). And oh boy… my misery started from the moment it hit 1st April (Malaysia […]

The coin box costs us RM8.90. The only disadvantage is, it is made of […]

Reading Sentences @ 20 mths old

Ethan has finally started to read sentences. It was quite tricky getting him to focus one word at a time and proceed to the next word and on and on. Initially he was overwhelm with all the words in a sentence that he just look at them and kept quiet! But now, he finally understood what reading sentences means and is slowly getting used to the concept. The whole-word approach is based on research findings […]

3 on 1

Yes, you read it right. 3 on 1, not 3 in 1. ??? Was in the kitchen. Suddenly so quiet in the living room. Whenever I left Darling and Ethan together, they will definitely be very very noisy, running and chasing after each other, laughing and screaming their lungs out. But this time, suddenly everything went so quiet. It always creeps me out when I don’t hear anything from them. Call me paranoia or anything, […]

Night Glow – 1st Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009

When we got home after the DAY event in Putrajaya in the afternoon, (read about it here) we never thought that we will be there again later in the evening. Only when we arrived home did Darling realised that they have an event called Night Glow later at 8.30pm. So we took our nap and in the evening, went all the way back to Putrajaya. For us, today was our first time stepping foot in […]
