QoW: What are Some Great Places to Show a Toddler?

After our recent excursions to the Planetarium and Sunway Pyramid, I’ve been keen to start taking Gavin to see more sights around KL.  So far, this is the list I’ve come up with: National Science Center National Museum Bird Park Butterfly Park Hibiscus Garden Orchid Garden Petronas Science Discovery Center Sights and Sounds: KL –Continue reading “QoW: What are Some Great Places to Show a Toddler?”

Sights and Sounds: The Planetarium and KLCC Art Gallery

After our rather successful day out at Sunway Pyramid, I was inspired to take Gavin to see more things.  One of the subjects I have been trying to introduce Gavin to is Astronomy and the planets.  I bought this book and mobile and showed him the planets some time back. Not surprisingly, he wasn’t thatContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: The Planetarium and KLCC Art Gallery”

Sights and Sounds: Sunway Pyramid

On Tuesday, I had some errands to run in Subang Jaya, so I decided to make a trip to Sunway Pyramid, a shopping mall I almost never go to because it is so far away.  Also because I wasn’t sure if Gavin would handle such a long car ride (especially back in the days whenContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Sunway Pyramid”

Funny Friday: The Napkin Holder

Gavin was slightly over a year old when this happened… We were sitting at a restaurant in the club and Gavin was helping himself to the napkins in the napkin holder.  My FIL then said, “Gavin, stop playing with the napkins and put them back.” Gavin stopped mid-action and looked my FIL straight in theContinue reading “Funny Friday: The Napkin Holder”

Tell-Me-Thursday: The Hair Cut

Here’s the story behind yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday – The Hair Cut. Gavin was due for another haircut so the hubby and I braced ourselves as we took him to A Cut Above at Midvalley, where he had had two successful haircuts in a row.  All our past experiences cutting Gavin’s hair has always been ratherContinue reading “Tell-Me-Thursday: The Hair Cut”

Kumon Books with a Personal Twist

Every since I saw those Kumon books at MPH, I’ve been rather keen to get them for Gavin.  Unfortunately, the couple of times I asked Gavin if he wanted them, he said, “No.”  Not surprisingly since there was nothing about Thomas or Little Einsteins in them.  Having realised that asking Gavin if he wants toContinue reading “Kumon Books with a Personal Twist”

Milo Cereal Animal World PC Games

I saw these at Jaya Jusco in The Alpha Angle: Nestle has a special promotion including a free PC game with their children’s breakfast cereals.  The box of cereal was also on special at about RM7.50 (or thereabouts) – which is about a dollar off the regular price. Since Gavin loves eating Milo cereal, IContinue reading “Milo Cereal Animal World PC Games”

Home Schooling – A Week in Review

So here’s how my first week officially home schooling Gavin went: On Monday, we went to the play gym and did a little Signing Time in the evening.  Gavin seems to have mixed reactions to the play gym because sometimes he’s keen to go and other times he doesn’t want it.  When we arrived onContinue reading “Home Schooling – A Week in Review”

Home Schooling – Cooking Class: French Toast

Since we never got around to attending that trial cooking class at Steps Ahead Learners, I decided to run my own “cooking class” at home.  Admitedly, I stole the idea from what little I had observed going on in the cooking class that was in progress when we first walked into Steps Ahead Learners.  TheContinue reading “Home Schooling – Cooking Class: French Toast”
