First Aid

What is first aid?First aid is the initial assistance or treatment given to a casualty for any injury or sudden illness before the arrival of an ambulance, doctor or other qualified person. St John Ambulance believes that everyone should learn at least the basic first aid techniques. You may need to use them at any time at home, at school or work or even while you’re travelling. Knowing what to do can make the difference […]


Home Grown Project

I love nature, plants and gardening. I wish for Ethan to love them as much as I do. To make him understand the circle of life of a plant, I started a home grown project with Ethan about two weeks ago. Our first project consists of growing spring onions and tomatoes. For the spring onions I get Ethan to place a red onion into the pot and help him cover it with soil. Two weeks […]


Ethan’s got new set of pillows

What other better way to start the new year?Getting new sets of pillows from Grandma! Woo hoo! It was new year’s eve and my parents were in town as we have a wedding dinner to attend on the 1st. This time my parents did not stay over at my place but at my sister’s in Puchong. So we went over there for dinner. And guess what? My mother brought out a new sets of pillows […]


Can’t Let Him Out of MY Sight!

My little Ethan. I have nothing much to say about him today except… I Can’t Let HIM Out Of MY Sight! Not even for a second, because, this is what might happen… if I had only blinked twice!

42. Lookout Point, Ampang

Nice view? That is what I see while enjoying my meal with Darling’s friends, CK Lim, Soo Ban and his expecting wife, Jennifer on Saturday nite. Where? In Look Out Point, Ampang. Nice place. Very breezy with very nice view. Food there are nice and very affordable. Go early if you expect to get good parking and table sitting. They now charge a rate of RM2 for the parking. The last time I went there, […]


41. Nose bleed … again…

Ethan’s nose bleeds again. I said again because he has had this for so many times already as in my October post. http://submerryn.blogspot.com/2008/10/nose-bleed.html So when it happens just now, we are so calm, too calm. Me: Eh, nose bleeds. Darling: Come… see. A lot kah? Me: Err.. no. Darling: You know what to do kan? I go work now. Call me if it tak stop bleeding, ok? Then we exchanged group hugs and kisses and […]

So trying to send a personalized message to each and everyone I know, but time doesn’t permit me to accomplish ALL my contact list. So please treat this as a very very personalised Merryn’s Merry Christmas wishes to all you Super […]


38. Fever.. what is it?

After experiencing so many ‘feverish’ episodes with Ethan, I decided to go to google for some help to understand more about fever. Here is what I think worth sharing.. In healthy kids, fevers usually don’t indicate anything serious. Although it can be frightening when your child’s temperature rises, fever itself causes no harm and can actually be a good thing — it’s often the body’s way of fighting off infections. And not all fevers need […]


37. Daddy + Mummy + Ethan = 1 Happy ‘Monkey’ Family

Ethan is still feverish. At times, his temperature went up to 39.1! Not only does Darling has to force him to take his oral medication, he also needs to insert the Voltaren Supp into Ethan’s rectum to bring down the temp ASAP. Luckily it is the weekend, so Darling is around to help out. That also means that we had to cancel all our plans and stay in the whole weekend. It was tough because […]


36. Boys will be boys

My little Ethan is not so little anymore. Well, he is still little in size, but not so little on attitude. He is going to be 17 months old this 21st. He is like a bolt of lightning at home, dashing here and there in the speed of light. With just a blink of an eye, he can be from Point A to Point B. Blink twice and he will be high on the staircase […]


34. Ethan has got swollen ankle/feet?

Ethan woke up this morning with a flush and warm body. I guess he was having a slight fever today. During breakfast, Darling saw 3 red marks that looked like insect bites on Ethan’s right leg near the ankle. We were not sure if it was caused by mosquitoes or other insects as we did not see the ‘culprit’ who did it. By now Ethan is getting warmer. To soothe his temperature we gave him […]


33. Lunch with friends

Chin Ling and King Mee decided to take leave on Tuesday. I did not ask if they were clearing their leave or what, but they planned to have lunch in Jaya 1. Michelle told me about the lunch plan on Monday and I immediately agreed for I have NOT seen them for quite some time now. Boo King ended up joining us too. Being the only Macho man there, he warned us NOT to talk […]


32. Christmas In Sunway Pyramid

In my quest for THE magical sights of Christmas, we ended up in Sunway Pyramid after our brunch in Holiday Villa Subang. The decor in the new wing is very lovely, kids will definitely love it. The ‘Strawberry Wheel’ is very cute. Darling and Ethan had a lovely ride on it. Just flash your Mastercard to ride.Then there is Santa on stage. I took Ethan up to meet Santa. Ethan dare not touch Santa. I […]


29. Chickenpox (Varicella) Vaccine

Ethan will be turning 17 months old this 21 December 08. His Daddy is planning to send him for the Chickenpox (Varicella) Vaccine. I am still wondering if I should let him take the vaccine or just face it like a man! I then decide to google for some answers and here is what I found… What kind of vaccine is it? The chickenpox vaccine is a live attenuated vaccine. This means the live, disease-producing […]


27. Mommy Blogger or Mommy Barber?

Not only am I a Mommy Blogger, I am also a Mommy Barber. Ethan has my genes and that means his hair is like mine, which means it’s like a lion’s mane if not well taken care of. Every three weeks or so, I have to give his hair a little snip here and there. Otherwise, he’ll look like a lion out hunting! When he was 2 to 3 months old, I took him to […]


26. Ethan’s first ‘camping’ experience..

The school holidays has brought ‘massive heavy crowd’ to the playground, a stone’s throw away from our home, to a point where it became an ‘eyesore’ to see children ‘scattered’ around every where! It’s like a ‘sci-fi war zone‘… children screaming and moving aimlessly at the speed of light! Crowd control is severely needed this time of the year. A resident of my neighbourhood has taken the wise step of organising an informal ‘Picnic Camp’. […]


22. Meals in a flash…

Sometimes I do not have much time to cook as Ethan is NOT always so obedient to be sitting on the floor whilst I cook away. Sometimes he is being naughty and will not let go of my leg. That is the time I call for desperate measures… to cook a complete meal in a flash! Today happens to be the day he is naughty. I had to change my menu at the very last […]


21. First formal lesson

Last Saturday I brought Ethan to visit my ex-colleagues in Vital Years. Vital Years is an Early English Literacy Centre catered for children from the age of 2 – 10 years old. As soon as he entered the centre, he was so at home. He went straight towards the other children there and started playing with them. I left the classroom leaving him behind. I was expecting some drama but to my surprise he did […]


20. Disney Festive Fun-tasy at NZX Mall

Was anticipating this day for the WHOLE week! Finally we were there. And by we, I meant Darling, Ethan, Sherlene, Kym and James. Arrived there around 5.45pm so we went around to explore the mall. Nice place I would say. I loved the many varieties of shops around, but as James said it, the shops were mostly unmanned, we did not know why…Had dinner at Full House. The place was nice with very beautiful settings […]


14. Banana Boy…

Was chatting with my cuz Jo when the topic of language came out. I was telling her Ethan’s circle of friends at the playground, Malays, Indons, Indians and Chinese… yes… in THAT order! It’s not that there are no Chinese kids around, there are, but you see, my little Ethan is like me. We speak English and BM… no Chinese dialect. So you can imagine the ‘chicken and duck’ scenario when these Chinese kids are […]


Time is BAD… Ethan’s selling off his house…

Time is bad. My dear little Ethan can’t afford to keep his little house, so we had to sell off his house. It was a sad, sad day.. but what can we do.. What needs to be done, needs to be done… LOL.. the truth is, his little house is a ruin now. You know, how lasting can a board house be rite? With a boy as mischievous as Ethan, I was surprised the house […]


Bleeding Nose in Toddler

Ethan’s nose bleed again today. This time around we are very calm when it happened because this is the 3rd time it happened. I remembered the first time his nose bleed, cant really remember how old was he, but I know he was barely 1 year old. It was 2.30am in the morning. Darling and I just slept like.. what.. one hour ago? Ethan woke up crying in his crib. Me, blurry eyed, woke up […]


Our 3rd Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 3rd Wedding Anniversary. Didn’t go anywhere as I was down with a red eye and a swollen eye lid! Darling William said it was due to me peeping him excessively. Yeah rite, after 3 years of marriage, NOW only do I start peeping?! Why? Because now we have a little boy at home, no more running around the house in our bday suit… He he he… ;p Happy Anniversary Darling. I love […]


Ethan is 15 mths OLD!

My little Ethan turns 15 mths old yesterday. As usual, with each passing months, I will look at him sleeping and recall the day I held him in my arms for the very first time. He still looks exactly the same to me. Now I understand when people say that you will always be a baby in your mother’s eyes… My dear Ethan, You are starting to run now. Our daily game of Hide ‘n’ […]


Err.. Hello?

This is my first time blogging. I dun really believe in blogging before, but after staying at home for the past 14 months and almost going bonkers.. I now find that I need to release my tension somewhere… I have to start somewhere, anywhere. I was a working executive before I became a Stay At Home Mum 14 months ago. From a 9-5 job, I now works 24/7, 7 days a week, 365 days a […]
