A little recent updates

1. I brought Aden to the cinema for the first time last 2 weeks, we watched the show Fire & Rescue since he loves vehicles so much. I purposely picked the noon show, on weekday cause I guess the crowd would be lesser. 
I am worried that he might misbehave in the cinema since it was his virgin visit, so if the patrons are not too many then I could handled easily.

I bought popcorn and Coke hoping these will keep him occupied too.

I let him sat on my lap, he seems ok with the dark environment and the loud noise, but during the beginning there was this trailer for the horror movie 'Annabelle', I told him not to watch (I am an kiasi mum, I'm worry this will give him nightmare) and I kept talking to him and distract his attention. He seems a little bit scared, but din't cry.
Then when the show started, we switched to couple seat since there were only 6 patrons during the entire movie xD

Overall, Aden behaved well in the cinema, it's a bit out of my expectation actually. But I noticed he got a bit boring after about 40 minutes, but luckily he din't make noise or wanting to come down. He even felt asleep towards the end of the movie, LOL! 

So, I think I can bring him to another animation next time!

2. I mentioned before that Aden is terrified of haircut, it's a war everytime I bring him to the saloon. He will scream and struggle very hard, even snacks/iPad won't help.
For the past 3 months, I have been bringing him to the same barber, he is actually my dad's friend and he has quick steady hands!
Usually I'll carry Aden throughout the whole haircut, and I sort of squeeze him tight so that he can't struggle much, then my dad will hold his hands, and the barber will control his head, and my mum will try to look for all kinda of things to distract Aden's attention. 
So yea you can imagine, it's like a big project bringing him to the hair cut!

But last week was the first time he din't cry during haircut!! He recognised the place when we arrived and he sorta sulk in the beginning, but only for a short while. Then he remained quiet throughout the whole haircut session, we din't even need to squeeze him tight or distract his attention.

I guess may be he starts to learn that haircut isn't something 'scary' or painful anymore? Or may be he is big boy now? ;)

So much fresher after the haircut!

I actually prefer those barber's shaver rather than trimming his hair by scissors, it's faster and looks more neat. That's why I hardly cut his hair on my own. 
I hope he will behave like this for the coming haircut sessions. 

3. We went lunch at a small town called Bagan Samak last Sunday and they have this small tanks which have fresh fishes and prawns, Aden got very excited and can't stop playing with the fishing net.

So he managed to catch a few big head prawns and asked the boss to cook us some yummy curry big head prawns! ^^

4. Online business is good thanks to the supports from friends~ 
I will work hard and bring more good products to share in the future!


  1. Bravo Aden for being a brave boy! ☺

  2. Glad to hear that our online biz is good. Keep it up and good luck.

  3. I understand that fear of the barber. It is the noise that the shaver makes. When I was a kid, I struggled like Aden, I was afraid those sharp razor blades will cut my head if the barber is not careful. And it is very troublesome, the barber will push your head to 1 side with the shaver, but he dislikes when your head move together with the shaver. How to control wor?? Very sien one!
    But after got used to it, I still prefer the barber now. I never cut my hair in saloons once in my life.

  4. Cutie pie is growing up - watched a movie, didn't cry when having his hair cut...these little joys! Bet he had so much fun catching the prawns. Sighhhh!!!! The joys of bringing up a kid, so so nice. I miss that so much.

  5. 那部 Annabelle 在杂志看到那娃娃就觉得很恐怖了

    ADEN 在戏院看戏看着看着睡着了?呵呵 。有时候真的很想睡去


  6. Aden looks so nice after the hair cut. Brave boy now at the barber. Good to hear your online shop is doing well. All the best!

  7. Why would they show Annabelle trailer before a kids' show? Aiyo!!! Fail lah like this. I oso scared lah...

  8. 1. That cinema doesn't seems sensitive to its audience. SInce they are showing a kiddy show, wth they shown Annabelle trailer ? When I brought my kids for cartoons shows, they only shown cartoons that are either playing and comedies.

    2. After hair cut, few years later it will be the dentist. I just brought my kid to the dentist last week.

    3. wow....nice seafod over there. Taiping is near to the sea, thus can enjoy some fresh seafood.

    4. Jiayou on your business!

  9. Never brought them to the cinema b4, scared bikin malu, maybe later, when Kz is bigger.. Oohh haircut.. Kz is always always terrified of the barber, cries each time til vomit, but recently no cry anymore too..Haha kids.. Yat si yat yeong..

  10. Yay! Now can bring him go watch movies in cinema.

    I want that curry prawns. So tempting.

    Good luck in your business. Glad it is blooming.

  11. Aden可以乖乖陪你看电影,以后你们可以常去拍拖看电影了,真好呵呵!

  12. Well done Aden, so behave in the cinema.
    Next time can bring him to cinema again..hehe...

  13. Aden looks so matured in that second pic! Big boy liow.. so he is not afraid of the dark in the cinema.. some kids at his age might find it terrifying.. yes, next time you can bring him to more movies. :)

    1. Yes, will do that in the future ;)

  14. Can bring Aden to more movies in future ya...

  15. #1.. oh?? this was just the very first time ah?? i thought you have brought Aden into the cinema before leh.. haha, looks like you are very well prepared and did all the necessary precautions!! hmmm, seemed to be like a big project also, must be quite stressful for you hor?? but luckily ended up not as bad as you imagined, actually nothing bad happened also despite Aden fallen asleep.. errr, or maybe it was his usual afternoon nap time ah?? did he feel excited about going to watch movie in the cinema??

    1. #2.. wakakakaka!! as i read on, i also can imagine how tough it is to get Aden to have his haircut!! four adults need to standby there to jaga, eih, 很大很費力的工程 leh that really is!! but then i am also surprised leh, he was like suddenly 突然開竅 like that.. he was just sitting so 乖-ly and let the hairdresser finish his job?? ah, finally, i guess this is surely a huge relief and next time no need to one kampung people to escort him for haircut anymore~~ :p

    2. #3.. oh, Bagan Samak?? never heard of this place, so it's near Taiping ke?? fuyoh, must be the first time Aden can play with a fishing net and he must be very intrigued by all those swimming fish lah.. hehe, luckily he didn't fell into the pond!! for sure??!! Aden managed to catch a few prawns?? haha, that's very interesting and sure he felt very proud of himself.. when the dish was served and everyone praised him that those were what he has caught, he sure put that very eksyen look on his face?? haha~~ :D

    3. #4.. yeah, congratulations for the success of your online business.. i guess not only the products are good, but i think you also render very good services to your customers, and good service always bring customers back.. hehe!! looking forward to see more products you will bring in, and i am still eyeing on one that i am interested to use, then i'll sure 幫襯 you later.. :)

  16. 我带小胖去看这部戏,但是看不到一半他就吵要出来了!!

  17. oppsss..they shouldn't screen Annabelle in the cinema during the kids really scares off the younger children. Anyhow ur son can adapt well to the environment...being abit terrified is normal for a first timer in cinema.

    1. I agree, they really shouldn't do that.

  18. the annabelle's trailer is really scary T__T
    i had tried to distract my own attention on it but the sound effects already made me scared.

  19. oh got this show ah...hmm...i wonder if it is still on in the cinema here. maybe will bring j go see

  21. congrats to your online business!

  22. Congratulations on the good business.

  23. Congratulations to aaden for being a good boy during the hair cut session.

  24. Aden is such a good boy and well behaved! I am not surprised because you have made the wisest decision to stay at home to care for him. He will grow up very obedient and loving to you forever!

    1. But it's not easy to be a SAHM, haha!

      Anyway thanks!

  25. My kids were exposed to barber / hairstylist after they reached 5 years old. So, I skipped the "crying" hassle :p

    1. Aden is growing cuter each day ^.^

    2. Then you cut their hair for the first 5 years?

  26. Aden big boy dy! Wohooo! You mustve trained him well.

  27. The curry prawns look so delicious! Aden is a cute boy, happy to hear your online business is good

  28. hahaha...the visit to the barber sounds like my 2 nephews. we finally sorted it out because it turns out both boys are vain pots. so we told them if they move they will get an ugly haircut which means they have to walk with newspaper covering their head for one whole month!

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…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
