3 Reasons to Stay at Hotel Equatorial Melaka

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is the heart of Malacca city. You have not seen Malacca unless you’ve spend your time exploring the many places of interests here. It is a favourite amongst tourists and for that very same reason, this area is always packed and abuzz with activities. Driving here can be quite tricky as it is not easy to find an empty parking spot hence many opt to stay nearby so they can just […]

Ayden’s Milestone: Cycling on two wheels

Ayden has been cycling Ethan’s hand-me-down bicycle with the aid of balancing wheels since October last year. I blogged about it here. He loves cycling very much and will cycle around the court while we play badminton or he’ll follow me on the cement path when I jog. He cycles up and down stones resulting in his balancing wheels getting out of shape and not able to support his bicycle properly.  Yesterday, I noticed him […]
