Nature is their toys

nature's toys

When I was growing up, my parents did not buy me any toys. I only have 2 toys which was a gift from a rich uncle; a cooking set and a soldier set (remember the green soldier stuck onto a plate). I do not remember complaining that I have nothing to play. I was always occupied by my surroundings. I have cats and dogs to play with. I have chicken, ducks, gooses and turkey to chase and be chased. I have the trees to climb. I have the tweaks as my sword and many more that God has provided for me for free.

And the best part is playing like what my children were playing in the photo above. Coconut husk boats race!

Yamaha Guitar

During the recent Cheng Beng family gathering, one of my nieces brought back her yamaha hs80. It seems that my eldest daughter has been arranging for her to do so, so that they can jam while the parents are busy catching up. My girl on the piano and her cousin sister on the guitar. Praise God for blessing them with music talent. The house is always filled with music.

Acar Cili & Acar Timun

Acar Cili & Acar Timun

Normally we only get to eat Acar Cili and Acar Timun during the Chinese New Year season. Now you can get it all year round from ME! :D These pickles are made by my Nyonya aunt. The filling for the Acar Cili is the grated papaya which has been dried up. My favourite is the Acar Timun which I love to munch while watching my favorite movie.

Painkiller for Dogs

To pet lovers, I am sure you never want to see your pet crying in pain or limping when walking. Recently, I came across vetprofen which is a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) for dogs that inhibits cyclooxygenase, a hormone responsible for pain and inflammation. Vetprofen is indicated to treat joint pain and inflammation and pain from medical and dental procedures. You can check out the link to learn more about this product. It is sold online. However, prescription is required to purchase this product

Nyonya Pineapple Tarts in KL

Nyonya Pineapple Tarts

Praise God this year I have quite a number of orders for my Nyonya Pineapple Tart from my KL friends so I am taking the extra mile by sending them with no additional charges; free shipping!

I make these Nyonya Pineapple Tarts from scratch…

me making the tarts

I improvised my mom’s traditional recipe. This year I am making these tarts using Anchor Pure Butter not Planta margarine. Butter is better and margarine, obviously. And of course, no preservative added. So, don’t keep too long till it turns moldy. The longest we tried to keep was 1 month from the day of baking.

Drum Set

When I see someone posted drum sets for sale, I am so tempted to purchase it for my kids. Later, when I found out the fee for drum lesson, I changed my mind. At least for now. It is so expensive, like RM50 for 30mins lesson. I should have pick up drum from one of my church members for free when I was still in school. I could earn big buck now.

Christmas Family Presentation

This Christmas we surprised the church members with a family dance presentation. Some of them have seen me and my 2 older daughters danced on stage but not the whole family especially my husband.

more than a good man

We dance to the song More Than A Good Man which my 4 older children learned from their recent VBS. We spent less than 5 days practicing but praise God we managed to dance as a family without much mistakes and we had fun. If my youngest 2.5yo was not taking his nap at that time, he will be on stage dancing with all of us.

The response was overwhelming with the pastor encouraging other families to follow suit in the coming Christmas celebration. :)

School Holiday Plan

The school holiday is finally here. That means, I do not have to go to work. I can spend my time at home with my children. So far, I have signed them up for a camp, computer programming course and sushi making class which is away from home! haha. I also plan to make muffins, cupcakes, cookies and maybe make personalized christmas tree ornaments as Christmas gift. We are also invited to 2 birthday parties and 3 of our own too. Oh ya! Children Christmas Carolling too and sleepover. Looks like this is going to be a busy school holiday for us. :)

Beach Exploration

exploring at the beach

Sunday is the only day that hubby can spend time with his 6 children. Here they were, at the beach, exploring. Finding unusual stuff on the beach. They found a lugworm nest!

Feeding Bunnies

feeding bunnies

We have 4 bunnies at home now. A pair of semi-arched back, and a pair of lion head.

I do not have bunnies when I was growing up. I played with neighbour’s bunnies but nothing is more fun than having your own. My kids are blessed that they have pet bunnies as early at 2.5yo. That’s my youngest son feeding carrots to the bunnies.
