We are not BEGGARS because we have a choice

A few weeks back I sent a complaint to Bata Malaysia via their website and facebook page.

This was what I wrote:

Willy Wonka Malaysia : Beryl's Free Chocolate Buffet (get your directions here)

Did you know that the chemical Phenylethylamine (PEA) naturally found in chocolate reproduces the feeling someone has when he or she falls in love which explains why chocolate may help to soothe a broken heart?

Although no hearts were broken but the idea of a FREE Chocolate Buffet by Beryl's seemed CRAZY enough to bring this die hard fan of chocolate go to the ends of the world (which is actually Bandar Baru Bangi) from Subang Jaya????

Jalan-Jalan Carik Sarapan di Subang Ria Restaurant : Baby wants Mee Curry


Our Jalan-Jalan Carik Sarapan today brings us to Kelana Jaya. "Baby" as we call our little bud, somehow is becokning some decent Mee Curry and truth be told I have not tasted a decent one since moving away from Ipoh.

I guess that is the problem as a Malay when you grew up on Mee Curry Daud Mat Jasak or even Char Kueh Teow or Beef Noddle Soup from Restoran New Hollywood in Canning Garden.


The thing about being in Ipoh, When it comes to food, racial boundaries are practically non- existent.

So when I mentioned this to some friends recently and said, hey you know there is one similar to the ones in Ipoh, I had to put my JJCS gear on and head there .

My mind works wonders when my butt can't budge from the house

Had glorious Lontong, a truly Jawa feast this morning and I slacked all day. That is what a little coconut milk does to your system :D

SO when the kids asked me whats for dinner, I knew we had to have something simple, filling yet non oily.

Dont let your cookie crumble

" I hope martial artists are more interested in the root of martial arts and not the different decorative branches, flowers or leaves. It is futile to argue as to which leaf, which design of branches, or which attractive flower you like; when you understand the root, you understand all its blossoming."


Bruce Lee, The Tao of Jeet Kune Do

One of the most exciting thing ever to happen when Liya moved in with us was the ability to study Taewando. I have always been fascinated with the discipline and the self confidence one gains if you take it up.

Pink IC Mak Buyung - Rekod Kesihatan Ibu

This posting is in Malay as I feel the information is mainly valuable and limited to my countrymen (or mothers for that matter of fact)

Siapa yang ambil subjek di politeknik, kolej, universiti dulu mesti setuju apabila setiap perkara yang akan kita pelajari akan dimulakan dengan 101. Contoh, mengambil subjek Antropologi, maka kita wajib mendaftar subjek Antropologi 101. Jadi bila kita cakap pasal basics, mesti kita sebut 101 kan?

Level 1 dalam turutan 01 yang perlu bagi setiap wanita di Malaysia yang mendapati dirinya hamil adalah membuat pemeriksaan kesihatan di mana-mana Klinik Kerajaan yang berhampiran.

Age Appropriate Opportunities



As talented as they may be at the age of 8 or 9, there seems to be something a bit "disturbing" in this video.



9 weeks



DH asked me for the first time yesterday, how big is baby #3 now. I said about the size of a prune. Then he went on to say "imagine ~ syasya was the size of a prune before"

It's just not in me to be...SELFISH

So ok I didnt ask anything on mother's day ~ or more like I told my 10 year old I didnt want anything on mother's day when she asked so ~ hah! padan muke (serves me right)

My mother was here so who is more important? Queen Mom or the Queen's Mother? And its her birthday too (7 May) so go figure. (click "Find Out More" button below to read on)

Maybe I am Plutonion from the Planet Pluto where the prego moms dont puke!

I can never understand why there are so many different ways a woman can go through 1st trimester.

I have friends who tell me they are "lembik" (weak) up to a point they have to be hospitalized and placed on a dripped when the only dripped I got was sweat dripping down every inch of my body ~ my thermostate goes up 10 notches when I'm carrying. (click "Find Out More" button below to read on)

3's a crowd

3 is such a stranger to me, although there are 3 of us as siblings in the family. 3 is the number people less often talk about except 3's a crowd.

A crowd maybe but when we all left our parents home, 3 didnt seem like a crowd anymore. (click "Find Out More" button below to read on)
