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 hubby is working

由我驾车载了两老两少来走走 =)

It was a very nice day (Bet you can tell from the photo xD) 

The last time we were here, visitors are allowed to step inside to feed the ducklings.
But this time no, guess is to protect those fragile ducklings ;)

The boys again, requested for another round of feeding (duck food is available at RM1 per packet) 

Here you can see lots and lots of ducks, as well as flies.
If you don't mind the smell and flies, this place is actually quite nice to visit, I mean for kids la

Actually not only daughters can play dress up, sons also can one, haha!

The ticket to the duck farm is inclusive of boat ride (RM8/adult, RM4/kid) 
 鸭场的入门票已包括踏船。上回Toby因为害怕所以我们没踏船,这次他竟然说要!我再三问他他还是说要,so.. 我们就继续流汗去啦!:p

We only paddled for less than 5 minutes because it was super duper hot! Plus with the life jacket, really can pengsan

That's how Toby sayang the duck :p


Then 有一个中餐厅,还有一个马来档口~ 当然也少不了一间伴手礼店

Had a quick drinks before we left, though short but consider good enough as the kids enjoyed themselves~
 希望孩子们在近期内不要再吵说‘要去duck farm 啦’!哈哈!


Then on Sunday, we traveled up North to Penang to see dinosaurs! 

It's located at The Top Komtar. 


There are time to go inside the center, ours were at 2.30pm 
 地点是The Top Komtar

This center has both indoor and outdoor areas, with information about dinosaurs and displays 




The whole place is quite well maintained 


Aden is a big fan of dinosaur. He likes cars and superheroes too but I can tell he loves dinosaur the most!
He knows the most dinosaur types than everyone else in the family, I also learn from him, haha!
(Well, he learn from TV and Youtube xD) 

Also a very nice day!

弟弟对于恐龙就还好~ 他只知道暴龙T-Rex~

Little Toby got excited seeing those 'moving dinosaurs'!


Do dinosaurs really exist millions of years ago?? Hmm....

Besides Jurassic park, The Top Komtar has other entertainments too, like play gym, game center, sky walk and etc etc.
We bought the ticket to the park at RM48/adult & RM38/kid (free for kids below 90cm), but it'd be more worth to get the fun pass which includes everything at RM78/adult. 

 其实如果有时间,买他们的fun pass更值得!(RM78/大人, RM48/小朋友)。除了可以进恐龙公园,还可以到Sky Walk 拍照,甚至其他的游乐场哦!

Visit their page here if you are interested to find out more. 

The rest of the days, just stay at home...
至于其余的时间嘛。。 就呆在家玩水啊,搬玩具,吵架,挣玩具等。。。
Playing water (Weather is super hot and stuffy lately!)

And to McD! Just to eat and enjoy the free air cond but not crazy over those Tomica and Hello Kitty toys!
I heard people start queuing at McD the night before just to get the toys, crazy! 
不懂大家有没有跟着刚刚结束的Hello Kitty茶壶一起疯呢?我看很多人大半夜就去排队买了!有够crazy呢!真的很佩服!哈哈!

When school reopened, I felt so relieved!
It's like I gain back my sanity, LOL!
But but, another long holiday is coming next month!!  
Oh no!!


  1. Not only kids, I will loves the duck farm too, hehe...

    1. Haha, you scare of smell and flies or not?

  2. No worries! You're not alone. That was why when I was teaching, whenever we had a holiday for some reason or other, parents would come and complain. Exam days also, no such thing as early finish, early home - they would come and complain too so we would have to babysit for hours...and hold the exam in such a way that every day, it would finish right before the last bell...and all the parents were very happy!

    Yes, it certainly is not easy...and I am sure it is even more so in your case, with two boys. I had my hands full those days when my girl was little and I only had one but looking back, those were the best years of my life. Wish I could turn back time. You would probably feel the same too when your boys have grown up...and become so boring, not fun to play with anymore. Hehehehe!!!!

    1. I understand, so I just to cherish the moments now, else I'll miss them badly when they eventually grow up!

  3. Good weather = sunny day = hot hot day LOL
    I think they fenced up the duckling enclosure maybe because kids don't know how to handle the fragile duckling and which become "abusement" for them >_<

  4. It's good that your boys had a lot of fun at the duck farm again. Oh, I did not know that there are dinosaurs in Penang. LOL!

  5. Ah, can see Aden and Toby really enjoyed themselves at both places! Time well spent!

  6. It seems like kids love dinosaurs

  7. Duck feeding, haha, my boys do that everytime they balik my in-law's place as my father in law bela ayam itik wan.

    I agree with you on the Fun Pass for the The Top. It's more worth it as the ticket for the Jurassic alone can be very pricey.

    1. Oh, then sure they look forward to balik kampung every time ;)

  8. My mum was different as she liked school holidays to spend more time with the children and go for holidays. Maybe you are a modern mum's generation.

    Kids are smarter these days and they learn so fast with good exposures. Aden will become a animal scientist one day since he likes dinosaurs. I also loved feeding ducklings and little chicks when I was a kid. Do you know that your kids would really gather lots of merits by just feeding these cute ducklings? It is same as the Buddhists who like to feed fishes and tortoise in the ponds for merit making. I saw some old people purposely feed fishes and stray cats every evening in KL. Good and happy for them & your boys too!

    1. Really? Well I hope what you say is true, hehehe!

  9. Yup. Headache for every mummies when holiday is here.

    Love the duck farm. The boys seemed to enjoy themselves.

  10. have not heard about this place. will bookmark to visit

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…

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…
