Fish is delicious

Ethan loves eating fish. I love eating fish. On a rushed day, all I need to do is to fry the fish, fry lots of garlic, toss it on the fish with some soya sauce and it’s all ready to be serve. So simple. Ethan loves his fish that way, mind you! Just watch this video. To him, my fish is DELICIOUS! :) Ethan @ 2 years 1 month

I miss this fella…

Before I got Ethan, I carried a handbag occasionally. I don’t really like to carry a handbag though. But was forced too. Otherwise, where to put the lipstick, powder and all the vanity stuffs back then? Those were the days when I was a ‘little’ vain~lah! Then, when I was in Bruxelles in 2006, I came across this CUTIE! I fell in love with it at first sight! I know I just HAD to have […]

Homemade Tau Foo Fah

Filter it, boil it. Add in whatever she needs to add.Leave it for about an hour.And what I do on MY part is… to help eat it! Yummy.. super smooth tau foo fah! P/S: This must be the worst […]

Sushi Aid

Ethan and I really love sushi. We can’t afford to dine out each time we want some sushi so I really need to ‘master’ the art of making sushi. Try as I might, I still can’t get my sushi to be cutely rolled. It will always end up weird. Then that day I was in a 100 yen shop, I found this gadget. Immediately I grabbed it. The very next morning, I tried making sushi […]

The Mask

We wanted to go to the MATTA fair last weekend. Knowing how crowded the place would be, Darling bought some face masks for us, Ethan inclusive. But Ethan refused to wear his mask. He’ll cover his mouth with his hands and pull it off if I forced it onto him. So I thought, why not make the mask cuter? Maybe he’ll like it then. So I sew a smiley face on the mask. Ethan was […]

Hari Raya in 1Utama

If you missed your ‘kampung’ already, 1U is the place to go. So nice the settings this year. I find it very pleasant and very comfy. Real village style. You’ll feel like you are in some fishing village.With real sand and real sea shells… NICE! Selling all sorts of handicrafts. All these are made from coconut shells. Nice food sold in sampans. And.. the little rascal. Can never resist a stage. Whenever there’s a stage, […]

When the EYE is BROKEN!

I was toying with my camera and Ethan was ‘talking‘ to Grandma through his toy phone. Suddenly, he accidentally knocked his eye with the phone and shouted, “Mummy, Ethan’s eye broken dy!” I checked, no, it was not BROKEN… but he kept going on and on and on that it is broken.. :P What do we do when our child’s eye gets ‘broken’? @@ Ethan @ 2 years 1 month

Never ever cook when you are unhappy..

because, your dish might disagree with you too. This morning, I thought I may sulk the whole day today. Went to the kitchen to cook as usual. Look what happen to my fish! VVVVVVVVV Just look at the poor fella. All curled up like that! When I called Darling into the kitchen to look, both of us had the greatest laugh ever. There goes my sulking and here I am, happy again! :)

We are FAMILY

What better way to spend the long weekend break than being with close family members? We went to my cousin Kym’s place on Sunday as my mother, sisters, nieces, aunt, uncle and cousins were there and had a great time. It was also Ethan’s first time with the Nintendo Wii but I didn’t get the opportunity to capture his action as I was too engrosed eating mata kucing. In the evening, we went to the […]

Shocking, freaky …

Today Darling, Ethan and I were having our family day out at the mall when this lady came and approach and called out my name. I turned to look but I didn’t recognise her. Then she introduced herself. She is the ‘J’ that always comments anonymously in my blog. How did she recognised me? She saw me browsing my own blog, (ok,ok, so sue me if I browse my own blog during a family day […]

Why is the Sun so hot? Why doesn’t he want to sleep?

Every morning, once Ethan got up from sleep, he’ll cross over from his crib to our bed. He will slowly but surely shove us aside to wake us up and to take over our pillows. What I’ll do though is to quickly pull up the shades and open the window to let the strong sun come in so that it will be too glaring for him to stop his ‘quest’ for our pillows. These days, […]

The cat’s eyes

I call this fruit ‘mata kucing‘. If you have been following my blog closely, you would have known by now that I am not so genius. Who can tell me what’s the difference between this and longan? Are they the same? Or are they different? Many people have advised me against eating this fruit, claiming that it is full of pesticide and harmful chemicals. But I love it so much. Darling knew how much I […]

What came in the mail today…

Ethan was about to fall asleep for his afternoon nap today when the mail man rang the bell and ‘woke‘ him up. We went out and got a registered mail from MummyMoon. This boy got excited and wanted to open up the mail so I let him.. Look at his sleepy eyes! Those eye bags are sure huge, don’t you think so? We got some foam work craft from her. Thank you so much MummyMoon […]

Sushi

Ethan will without fail request for sushi every weekend when we go out. I don’t know why, but that boy just loves sushi. I think he got it from me! I love sushi too! So finally I bought my sushi starter pack and tried making sushi this morning. Having him by my side whilst making sushi is sure difficult! When I cut a roll, he’ll eat quarter of it. When I placed the cut sushi […]

First Burn

Went back to my in-law’s place yesterday. SIL gave Ethan two lanterns. One Ultraman and another Pooh Bear. The Ultraman’s using candle and the Pooh using LED. Decided to let him try the Ultraman lantern. He was happy to carry it around. Then he put it down. You know he loves blowing candles right? So blow he did. Next thing we know, he went to grab that candle! Of course, the hot wax burnt his […]

Nice puzzles

Since Ethan is in the puzzle mania these days, my eyes are trained to spot PUZZLES whenever I go out shopping. I went to Popular today. Yes, yes, I went out, despite the H1N1. I just can’t stand being cooped in 7 days a week! I am as pale as a ghost already from the lack of sunshine, I can’t even remember how the street in my neighbourhood looked like, kay? (Alright, exaggerating there… ) […]

What do rhinocerous eat?

I taught Ethan on animals and what they eat sometime back. He knows what frog, roaches, giraffe, elephant, birds, cats and many more common animals eat. And then, he started playing with more ‘sophisticated‘ animals. Today, he asked me, “Rhino eat what?”, “Hippo eat what?”. I was dumb folded as I do not know the answer. I was not online that moment so I can’t google for answers. I quickly sms 3 people deemed ‘genius’ […]

How I toilet train Ethan

Remember I blog about Ethan being diaper free @ 2 years old? Well this is how I trained him… Now, can anybody actually understand what he says? I am so used to hearing him talk, I can understand, but for those of you listening for the first time, do try to see if you understand half the word he is saying…^^ If only the ACTUAL training is this easy, life will be marvelous! LOL..

When there’s something strange, who do you call?

Ghostbusters? No~lah, this is not a friendly Casper. This is the little rascal being bored to pieces. Since the H1N1 outbreak, he has been ‘grounded’ at home. No playground, no shopping, no nothing! (My area has cases and the schools has been ordered to close, so you can imagine my paranoia here). Every nook and corners of the house is his ‘playground’ these days. But I think, before he goes bonkers with boredom, I’ll be […]

Peranakan (Baba Nyonya Wedding)

When I got married, I did not do it the Peranakan style. I almost did not do it the Chinese style too. I did not wear that RED outfit (what is that call again?). I wore an English wedding gown. Mat Salleh celup lah kata kan… People like me are the ones that should be thrown far far away for not following custom. Anyway, all ME aside, my cousin Cherylene married her sweetheart Eddie the […]

How to peel and store pomelo

My sister in law went to Ipoh recently and gave us one pomelo. You know right, Ipoh is famous for this fruit? Anyway, how do you peel your pomeloes? For us, Darling peeled it this way… After that, clean the excess skin off the pomelo. Place it back in it’s outer ‘shell‘And close it. Open and take the pomeloes when you are ready to eat them. :)
