A Promise and A Gift to a Friend…

We got to know this wonderful family from Butterworth during a camp nearby our place last year.. being our first time meeting each other then, perhaps by pure fate, our friendship quickly blossomed.. we kept in touch and promised to meet up in a year’s time after we parted our ways….

In a blink of an eye, one year has passed and it’s time for us to drive all the way from JB to Butterworth (~ 700km, with 3 monsters in tow, spread into 2 days…) and to spice up things a little bit, we prepared some rock painting as souvenirs..

Well, here are some behind the scenes pictures…

 

Finally our little pebbles have found their new home… Wish to see you guys (our baby artwork and of course our friends, i.e. M, LY, HJ and TF) again… ^_^

Letter to Santa Clauses Across the Globe

Lately I’ve been seeing some christmas trees in shopping malls, signifying the festive season is just around the corner.. in fact, Black Friday sale has juz ended hours ago… So I guess now is the best time to post this…

Well, for the kids, trying to get their wish list known by the most generous person in the world, Santa, they started sending the letters to as many of them as possible across the globe… hoping one of them would actually notice them ^_^… one as far as North Pole and the other as near as Hong Kong…. (shared by others in social media… just for the fun of it.. ^_^ especially HOHOHO town/postcode?? )

Of course, the letters are filled with some creativity and personal touch of mommy and every kid in the house… including their finger prints…

Snowmen created from sea shells and finger prints…

Colourful Tapes, Ribbon, and Baking Paper…

And a mixture of different elements… (buttons, glittery glue, ribbon, beads)

Last but not least.. their personalized messages a.k.a wish list…

 

Mid Autumn Festival 2017 – Hand Made Lantern

Last year the boys and Mommy decorated and transformed lanterns bought from Mr DIY into some cartoon character like Totoro, Minion and 月兔/玉兔 a.k.a Moon Rabbit.

This year around, Mommy tried to make a Lantern from scratch, i.e. from iron wire, transparent color paper and paint… although the result was not really up to par, it was still fully functional in the sense of being able to hold up a lighted candle during the stroll in the park… anyway, Mommy vowed to make a better one next year… Ganbatte!!

Anyway, to be safe (and practical for kids below 6 as they are lanterns were battery powered), the Totoro, Minion and the Moon Rabbit latterns were still the favorites for ZY, XY and HY respectively (surprisingly, the lanterns were still in good condition). ZY, who was less than 2 years old, treated her lantern like a “Ball”.. literally a ball which she could throw and kick!!! 😄😄😄 There was an uncle nearby who saw this just couldn’t stop laughing …

So, here you go.. the lantern in the making…

HY’s 6 YO Birthday Cake “Banner”

Months before the actual day, we have been tasting few types of cakes with HY, trying to figure out which is the best pick in terms of the taste for most of the preschool children and the presentation that we want. After some trials, we decided to go for Baked Oreo Cheese Cake.

Initially, we are expecting a taller cake for this celebration. Therefore, Mommy had prepared the “Banner” on the cake but when we got the cake, her heart sank as the width of the banner is even greater than the height of the cake. So, alas, the banner ended up on the cake stand (anyways, things still look and taste good 😊)

Well, the banner is made of ribbon and the words are made of clay. If you notice, rainbow colors were used, i.e. ROYGBIV (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). Actually this means a lot to Mommy as HY is our “Rainbow Baby”, hence the choice of color.

Wishing you a happy and memorable 6th birthday, Son!

Love.. Papa and Mommy…

Goodie Bag for HY’s Friends @ Smart Reader

It is almost like every child’s dream to be celebrating their birthday in kindergarten, in the presence of all his/her beloved teachers and friends… More so for those who are graduating soon…

So, for our boy who was celebrating his “once in a lifetime” birthday party in his preschool, he asked for goodie bags to be distributed to his classmates.. So, Mommy made some clay ornaments attached to the clips and went to some wholesale stores nearby to buy some snacks and stationery for his friends…

Here are some behind the scene pictures while preparing the gifts for his friends, of course with Mommy’s help and …… a little help / moral support from his sister… LOL

Pandan Leave “Rose”

Pandan Leaves are known to have a special effect to shoo away bugs and insects… and it also comes with pleasant scent as a freshener for our bathroom…

So, instead of plainly putting some leaves in the house, mommy has created some “roses” out of it.. as a deco + all the other great things this plant can offer… 🙂
