Ice Skating Adventure with KY

Sorry for the very blurred DH was taking from outside the skating rink with one hand while the hand carrying Shone.

I brought KY along for Ice-skating adventure after winning some tickets for the Project Alpha.

But guess what, as mommy herself do not know how to skate, I am more like a mommy crab teaching the baby crab how to walk! And both of us fall at the entrance itself ...luckily we both dressed in our jeans!

I had to hold KY with one hand and the other hand holding on strongly on the side wall...had pains on my shoulder and back after that..signs of getting old....

And after going about 3 quarter around the ice-skating rink, KY wanted me to CARRY her!!! How can I when the floor is so slippery and I cannot even balance myself :P So I told her, "Only left a few steps and we'll reached the exit...mommy will hold you, let's go!".

And when I asked her whether she likes ice-skating? KY replied yes.

And when I asked her again whether she want to continue skating? KY said No!!! And added next time when she grows up she'll be able to skate as well as those big sisters she saw, wearing those lovely skating costume! lol...

By the way, the ice-skating rink at Sunway Pyramid is open to children age 3 and above, so KY barely reach the minimum age requirement...and I thought it would be a nice experience or good exposure for her ;) Plus, mommy herself has not tried ice-skating herself :P

Anyway, folks, if you are interested to go to Pyramid Ice-Skating Rink(best to go for couples :P hehe...*wink* get what I mean? Provided perhaps the guy can skate better than the, check out their site here)!

My Valentine’s Day

Hi folks,

This year(2010), the first day of Chinese New Year actually falls on a romantic day, Yep, i.e. Valentine's Day!

I personally feel that Valentine's Day might not need to spend with an opposite gender. We can also have fun(in my case) with our girlfriends, especially those who are still unattached!

Now, if I have a chance to spend my Valentine's Day with Anne Hathaway(picture below) whom I fell in love with after watching her movie, The Princess Diaries (2001).

And the fact that Anne Hathaway is a vegetarian as well(so am I), I would love to bring her to a cosy Vegan and Vegetarian Outlet(LovingHut) near my place for a "romantic" meal together!

First, I shall order this Loving Hut Cuppuccino for both of us.

Then, I will like to let her try out this Malaysians all-time favourite, popular dish- Nasi Lemak.

Next, I shall order this icy "ice kacang" another popular dish amongst Malaysian for her to clear the warmth from the Malaysia weather & friendly Malaysians as well as from the earlier nasi lemak dish.

Of course I will not forget to snap a picture of me with Anne Hathaway for remembrance!

And if I managed to win a ticket to the premiere of 

Valentine’s Day starred by her, it will be COMPLETE & PERFECT!!

How would you spend your Valentine's Day?

Hope it will be a happy one for you!

Petaling Jaya: Over 300 prolific parenting bloggers and Friso Gold product users with their children attended the Nuffnang Friso Gold Family Day Out 2010 held recently at Kizsports & Gym in 1-Utama Shopping Centre.
It's a kind of magic at Nuffnang Friso Gold Family Day Out 2010.

The guests were thrilled that Nuffnang, Asia-Pacific's first blog advertising community, and Friso Gold, a premium growing up milk formula from Dutch Lady Milk Industries Bhd, had organised another family day out following the first in 2008.

The event was an opportunity for the guests to bond with their children and young family members over activities and games.

Toddlers were entertained by music and taught to do the "Hokey Pokey" dance while kids above 3 years played games like "Stand On The Spot".

There were also a sand art colouring session and magic show at Playland which amazed both the kids and the parents.

What I did to wake KY up on her Second day at Nursery

Hi folks!

Today, I tried another method to wake her up after my first attempt failed miserably(by scooping and carrying her up to the washroom when she refused to my calls, "WAKE UP, time for school!!" and cried...she never really cry early in the morning unless she is not feeling well.

I switch on her favourite music CD, but this failed too(well, at least not until DH switch on the light), but it did managed to wake up the other guy in the room, i.e., Shone!!

So instead of KY waking up and brush her teeth, it was Shone who got up happily wakes up and brush his teeth haha...

KY woke up only when DH came in and switch on the lights(with KY screaming away! Dislike the lights on when she sleeps) and made fun of her that she don't have to go to school anymore!

Then only KY got up and brush her teeth! And normally by the time she sees her uniform nicely hanged, ready for her to wear, she stopped crying or fussing about!

Hmm..let's see when KY can actually wake up without much fuss!

How's your kid's day at school?

Hope it has been smooth and happy thus far!

Happy Birthday Sis!

Hi folks!

Today marks the birthday of my elder Sister, Irvin!

This is my favourite picture taken during last CNY, 3 sisters with 3 babies!
Can you spot which one is my elder sister, Irvin? Nope, not the first one on the left...that's my mom, though everytime we go out, people says she looks like my sister!'s the one in pink shirt in the middle, carrying her baby girl!

My roommate used to tell me that having a sibling(especially same gender) is such a blessings as we get to share jokes, secrets and our ups and down!

My sister and I are one year apart, so we do get to share a lot in common indeed.

We shared the same:
1) Nursery, schools(from primary to secondary) and nearly the same college too until I got scholarship to study at another college that is!
2) Same bunch of friends we used to hang out with
3) Same parent and relatives (lol...of course lar!!!)
4) Very close married and pregnancy times which then again makes us share almost the same topic of conversation ranging from marriage preparation, pregnancy woes, and now parenting!
5) What else same ya...sis? (if you reading this now...haha)

Even though we share similar childhood experiences yet when we grew up, each of us encounter different experiences which made up what we are today!

But, one thing remains the same, whenever we face any problems or need a listening ear, we knew who to call!

So, Irvin(or we call her "dajie" at home), Happy 3? Birthday to you!

May you have a Great Yearssssss Ahead!

Thanks for being there for me when I need it!

Toxic metal in kids’ jewellery from China?!!

Hi folks!

Alarmed by the news at TheStar Online today.

As I am currently spring-cleaning my house in preparation of Chinese New Year, I had contemplating of throwing away some toys which I don't think my kids are playing anymore. 

As Shone seems to like putting things into his mouth a LOT lately, the news "Toxic metal in kids’ jewellery from China", really makes me shiver....

Time to check and screen thru the toys thoroughly! No matter where the toys are made. It's good to check through the materials. Hope our local authorities can also assist us to screen through these toxic materials used especially for kids' product!!

Take care and take note folks!
