A boy who loves water

I remember Aden's first experience in the pool, he is about 6 months old back then. I bought an inflatable pool online and made use of it a few times, at our car porch. 

That purchase I made comes with a neck float, some rubber ducks and an electric pump (well this is not important to know la xD)
Daddy went into the pool during the first time cause mummy din't want to get wet wanted to take photos since it was Aden's first dip in the pool, something memorable ;)

He was a little bit frighten during the beginning but eventually like it.

Then I bought a proper float and swim suit for him and let him enjoy his swim by himself!
Though swimming at home can be fun but this inflatable pool got its cons also la! It takes time to fill up the pool with water, and it requires a lot of water and the water became a waste at the end.... 
Soon I brought him to the swimming pool nearby my house and ever since then, we go to this pool quite frequently.

I am glad that Aden isn't a child who is afraid of water. I know a friend's son who is about 3 now and he is still refuse to go into the pool, even if the parents are there.

Just last Wednesday we went for a quick evening swim again. Suppose have to pay RM 10 for adult (it's a hotel by the way) but since nobody notice our presence so I just act nothing xDD

I chose to go on weekdays cause we can occupy the place by ourselves! 

Trying to blow bubbles but Aden wasn't ready yet, so let's try again................

Ahah succeeded! :p
Very difficult to take proper selfie with wet hands, but am glad I managed to take a few shots in the end without dropping my phone into the pool.

Guess who took this? :p

I realize Aden looks like a Korean celebrity here but I can't recall who, haha!

My favorite picture of the day! My face is so slim and Aden is so excited here! I love his expression!
I think you can tell how much Aden loves dipping in the water! 

Swimming is the best possible exercise. It works all the body's muscles and burns the most calories. And learning to swim is an ability, like walking, it's part of growing up.
Looking forward to the next swimming session, hopefully hubby is free to join~


  1. I loves the last picture, the expression of Aden, hehe...

  2. I was a very sickly child and saw doctors almost every week until my mum waved white flags. Finally a doctor suggested that I should go for proper swimming lessons at 7 years old to build up my lungs. Later years I hardly have cough & colds now. Swimming is really good!

    1. Yeah I agree that Aden looks like a Korean star. His mummy looks even more like a Korean actress today. Are you.a Malaysian, forgot to ask? ... Wakakakaka

    2. Good for you TM!

      Korean star? Haha!
      LOL, I am Malaysian la of course! :p

  3. Aden is a marine boy like the cartoon - loves water so much! Aden's mommy is like a mermaid in the water with him. :)

  4. I think all kids love to swim like Aden. My boy too .... He likes to swim but too bad because of his eczema, he has to wait. Bring Aden for more swimming, sports will strengthen him. And, you certainly look gorgeous here, Hayley !

  5. All kids love water. Good pictures.


  6. Eh I thought you will post about TM timm, hehe.. Oh yes most kids I know love water.. Play water in the bathroom, at the pool, etc.. Kz didnt really like water when he was young.. He made a face when we brought him to the pool.. But now loves water after going to the kindy..

    1. Haha, not that soon la!
      Well that's good!

  7. Aden跟你越来越像脸所以像韩国人,哈哈~

    1. 哈哈,大多数人都说他像爸爸噢~

  8. Aden took your photo!? Well done Aden! Big boy now.

  9. aden帮你拍照?好厉害!照片很清楚呢!

    1. 是拍了几张才拍到,哈哈!

  10. Kids do enjoy water play, right? :)

  11. Hi,
    How are you? This is Aini from Zalora Malaysia.
    I came across your blog and enjoyed reading your interesting entries on amazing stories on family and personal insights! I was wondering if you would be keen on a one-time blog collaboration with us. Do let me know if you are interested so that I can fill you in with the details. Drop me an email, Hope to hear from you soon!

  12. Kids sure love water, all my nieces and nephews are like that...but so do I...Um..(am I still kids? Nope..I'm too old for that, hahaha~~~)

    1. Haha, hey I also love water wert, even soaking in the water is fun especially on a hot day!

  13. 你的素颜好好看!!!!!

    1. 谢谢~ 不想太过依赖化妆品所以很多时候都宁愿素颜~

  14. Aden took photo of u? Wow...he's good!
    He looks so enjoy swimming....very good activities!

  15. I love the baby photos, so cute lah! It is good that Aden can swim at such a young age.

  16. ah.. actually it's good to train the kids to swim while they are still babies.. i always heard babies are actually born to know how to swim in the womb, so they naturally knows how to swim, just that as they grow and are not put into such environment, the skills are already forgotten.. so, it's great that Aden actually loves swimming leh~~

    1. you are true.. actually not so wise to have that inflated baby pool at home, very very waste water leh.. so where is that thing now?? keep inside the store room, or given to your relatives?? or maybe use that as mat somewhere?? hahaa~~ so go to the proper swimming pool better lah, since you can actually sneak in without people notice.. actually you can pretend yourself as guest of the hotel mah, just look calm and don't freak so they won't be suspicious.. :D

    2. wah, happening lah.. like that also can selfie in the swimming pool.. hmmm, i wonder if you have the protective water-resistant case for your phone ah?? i definitely won't bring my phone near the water at all, not to mention in the pool using it to selfie, haha!!

    3. i like the photos, you both looked so happy and jovial lah.. and Aden really 深得真傳 lor, he can take good photos and also selfie very well lah, hahaha!! i love the last photo also, Aden looks so cute and happy!! haha.. and actually comparing the photos hor, Aden slims down already ah?? because his cheeks were like more puffy when he was younger leh, now the cheeks are more flat already woh, haha.. wonder the next time Uncle SK sees him, still can cubit or not?? :D

  17. Aden感觉永远都在很兴奋的当儿阿!

    1. 哈哈,他的确很兴奋啊!

  18. He isso handsome here. Should send the pic for contest. Go see lina post. She mentioned you.

    1. Thank you for informing Mamarazzi! I already commented there ;)

  19. Nice seflies here! Yes, swimming is memang very good exercise.... too bad I don't know how to swim.. very scared of water in the pool... But I make sure my kids know how to swim, it is an asset. :)

    1. Yep, not just an asset, but a life saving skill.

  20. I am sure most of the kids love water. Every week my girls also pester me to bring them to swim.

    1. Oh, then do you bring to them swim every week?

  21. Last picture Aden super cute! Who's the korean celebrity? Psy ah? LoL!

  22. Aden 睡在池边那张。。。ahahaha

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

What we did during the long Deepavali holidays/这个屠妖节长假

I bet every stay-at-home-mums suffer from headache when it comes to school holidays.
It can means more screaming more mess at home, haha!

Though I have only 2 kids at the moment, I really dislike school holidays.
Firstly, big brother stays home all day means there will be more fighting, more chasing and even more bullying.
Secondly, staying at home all day can be very boring for kids, I need to crack head thinking what to let them do to pass time.

Anyway, during the recent Deepavali long holidays, I brought them to Trong duck farm.
The last visit was only last month, apparently my sons love this place and have been pestering me to go there again.
Since it's school holiday and the place is not far, why not?


再来,要他们一整天呆在家也很无聊,我这个懒妈妈都不懂要让他们玩些什么新玩意 xD

 唯一一方面我喜欢的就是不必当司机载上学~ :p

Anyway, 这个屠妖节的长假呢,第一个外出的地方就是自农鸭场。


This time I drove my parents and sons there since hub…
