The pitiful iPad

How many of you can stay calm if your kid did the following thing to your iPad?


Come, raise your hand, honestly.

This son of mine, really drove me nuts everyday. He threw his daddy's iPad from upstair this morning. No reason, just because of his tantrum.

I came home from tomb sweeping and MIL immediately told me this, and when I looked at the iPad, I really din't know how to react. Anyway, I did not beat him, I scolded him. Already told him numerous times that he is not supposed to throw/hit the iPad just because Youtube videos/games cannot be played.
I knew one day this iPad will sure gone head-wired one, just din't expect to be this soon.

Now, daddy got to spend some money to get the iPad fixed.

Sigh... Tell me how to teach a stubborn boy like Aden :'(


  1. Oh dear. When we give little ones electronic gadgets, this is bound to happen but of course the heartache will be there. Good on you that you did not hit him out of frustration.

  2. Ohhhhhh kid ~~~
    heartpain for u lol

  3. Kids are kids, what to do? Of course, must punish, reason with him, explain...when both are no longer angry.

  4. I bought 1 cheapo tablet, and my kid threw it on the floor a few times when the video he wanted to watch was "buffering".. The screen pecah after 3-4 times.. I did not beat him, but I shouted like gila!

  5. There's some hard cover case, it won't say like can protect 100% of it, but still it's better than normal case. Maybe you can try to get that, so let say touch wood next time it happened again, it won't damage so badly.

    1. I know what you mean, 防爆 cover right? Actually that cover is 防爆 one, else even worse.. :(

  6. Haih, I don't know. I never have my own kids yet. Maybe I will not be able to control and slap him :( .

  7. haahaaa...follow the mother side or father side of the tantrum ? I will get angry too if this happen..

  8. Throwing anything is unacceptable to me. If this was happened to me, I would be mad too. When I was mad, I would punish and scold them to make sure there is no more next time. I am fierce. Hehehe!

  9. Maybe can like what Princess Ribbon mention, a cheapo one for the kid, if not, will be heartpain as in this case...

  10. Good that you did not beat him. Just show him the broken iPad and tell him since broken, the consequence is that there is no more Youtube and games for him. This is also his punishment, cannot play at all with the new iPad since he broke this one.

  11. OMG!It's really hard to stay calm when seeing this masterpiece.

  12. Boys are normally more active and restless, need to discipline him, tell him the reason why he should not do that, because it is Daddy's hard earned money to buy that so he should treasure it and he should be patient when the video is loading, patience is a virtue but maybe he is too young to understand all these reasons

  13. I am using my precious old iPad now to read your blog. My heart will ache and crack up if the screen becomes like your hubby's!! You are wise to scold him without having to use canes. Someday you may need the cane when the limit is overboard otherwise you might get hyper tension. Lol

  14. Oh dear! I would be blowing my fuse seeing this!! Luckily we hide the ipad from the kids to prevent such happening. Dont want them to be too addictive to such gadget.

    My kids never throw things because of tantrum. Sometimes they could be careless, accidentally drop things. I guess patience is virtue to teach a stubborn kid. I am sure once they gone to school, they would behave much better.

  15. Oh Boy... you allow Aden to fondle with iPad without your supervision? My kids norm ask to play. And that only happens on weekends or when we are out "lepaking". Other time, strictly a NO NO.

    1. No, usually I supervised one. But this happened when I wasn't at home... :(

  16. Relax...relax... happened to me before but my kid accidentally drop it. It's ok la... repair it.

  17. Ban him from playing the tablet as he already damaged it and daddy have no $ to get a new one >_<

  18. oh dear... time to get a new one... can it still be repaired? It looks.. like my pc with three big dark trees now...

  19. oh my.... maybe you need to keep it somewhere else :OO

  20. Sorry to hear that!

    My previous iPad also cracked but it was my own fault and my dear got one another one to replace it, which I've been super careful with ever since. Kids will sometimes be like that though, good that you didn't hit him. My late mom used to beat me as a kid and I don't think it helped much. Haha.

  21. Alamak.... might be too young for him to play with it. Sometimes the costof fixing it mightcome up to the cost of buying a new one

    1. Thanks for asking HB. The iPad is ok already, brought to repair (<RM400) and now looks like brand new, hehe. But will be super careful with usage now.

  23. Well, luckily it didn't hit anyone when he threw it. Good to give him a scolding and denda him a bit. Such as no usage of the ipad till he behaves..

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~


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…

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…
