Kids kitchen experiment

Hi folks!

One of the subject I loved the most during my schooling days is Kemahiran Hidup or home science where we learnt how to sew, cook and carpentry plus electronic work.

I think this is also what makes those places like Kidzania which enable kids to explore and have hands on experience so engaging for the kids and parents alike.

We can also create such experience at home by letting the kids help out or take charge of meals at home. No judgment only praise and assistance …let their creative juices flow…

Here are the three masterpieces made by and for my 3 kids..can you guess which is made by the 15, 13 and 8 years old?

Bon apetit and have a fruitful weekends!

Cheers!

What would you do to increase your energy level

Hi folks!

As kids grow older and so are the parents, do you find a decrease in energy and vitality?

I do find i can't keep up with the energy level that used to after turning 40 and there are many things I am doing to try to maintain and rebuild my energy level.

One of the thing that I gonna do is Master Cleanse. Have heard so much about this since my early 20s and finally found the chance to do it along with a group of like-minded people who also looking to reprogram their health under the support of a health coach.

Will update more about my journey after this.

Meanwhile stay safe, fit and healthy folks!

Cheers!

Game change for a mosquito magnet

Hi folks!

Being a mosquito 🦟 magnet and having admitted to hospital for dengue, I treat this like my after shower lotion πŸ˜„ cos it has Vit E and very moisturing to the skin too! Perfect for kids and adults alike πŸ‘❤️

Let me share two tips I have learnt on how to use it *conveniently + economically*, making the most of this chemical free insect repellent!

Tip 1:
Pour some into an empty recycled glass bottle and add on a roller fitment, and roll it at those areas of our body which is warm and attracts mosquitoes 🦟

Tip 2:
Pour into a recycled Thieves spray bottle and turn it into an insect repellant spray πŸ‘ spray it near the bed, stroller, pillow, skin, etc

Follow me at instagram/secondtimeparenthood on my journey on my journey and adventures to build healthy (and chemical free) home 🏑 one step at a time economically and effectively πŸ€—

Happy Merdeka moments with kids

Hi folks!

Happy Merdeka Day to my beloved country Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

Had a blessed moment with my youngest last night creating and sharing about the meaning behind Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ flag.

It's not just about the number of stripes, the colours but what each of them represent the country they are born in, their roots…

ZS suggested flying the flag at our balcony today 😁

And he complimented the version drawn by his gor2 while trying his best to complete his flag πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

I just love watching and be there with him completing his art piece cum #assignment

What are you planting for your children today?

Hi folks!

Somehow the things we offered to our children when they are younger forms the habit and laid a foundation for them…whenever a good start or a detrimental influence ….

Therefore, as parents, we all play a role to build a healthy lifestyle, diet and habits since young. There's no easy way to out and there are so much temptations, indirect input/influences from advertisement, habits from our own upbringing, etc..

I am contemplating and asking myself what seeds am I planting for my children?

Hopefully I have planted plenty of good seeds that will bear Abundance of bountiful, colourful and healthy fruits which will accompany and benefit my children for a lifetime!

What are you planting for your children today?

How do we eat Gac Fruit

Hi folks!

We were blessed with this high antioxidants fruit called Gac fruit recently and I was very impressed to find the benefits of this fruit:
- 70 times more lycopene than tomatoes

1. Combats cancer
2. Fights anemia
3. Helps lower cholesterol levels
4. Prevents cardiovascular diseases
5. Improves eyesight.

So I did my research and had another #kitchenexperiment . This tropical fruit is often cooked with glutinous rice in Vietnam or made into juice.

I tried incorporate into a dish that I often prepare for my kids, sweet and sour #vegetarianrecipe

Pretty awesome as the skin of the seeds are the ones that brings all the red super food goodness and it doesn't have much taste except a bit buttery omega oil-like πŸ‘

Will try to cook the flesh (which is quite bitter) into soup and see how it turns out! #bonapetit #foodasmedicine #fruitdiscovery

Cheers!

Learning to ..

Hi folks,

Just wished to pen down my thoughts and reminder to share with everyone and my future self 

To a multi tasking super mom:

Learning 


Learning to take a break when I need to

Learning to let go to things beyond my control

Learning to forgive myself 

Learning to encourage myself 

Learning to chill out with kids when they are chilling and not making them work alongside 


Working hard, contributing is my own choice, no one force me to 

And I am happy to contribute to the family 

No one will force me to work if I just wanna take a break 

They will be happy to have a cool and chill mom instead of a stressed up and overly serious mom

So learn...learn to be a happily contributing, cooking, chilling and cool mom 


Cheers!
