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”

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”

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”

Early Childhood Education – Are You Pushing Too Hard?

I stumbled across these Kumon workbooks at MPH bookshop last night.  While shopping at Midvalley Megamall, Gavin insisted on taking his regular stroll through MPH to check out what’s new in the Thomas and Friends section (which, incidentally, was nothing).  As I waited for him to tire of looking at the same old Thomas booksContinue reading “Early Childhood Education – Are You Pushing Too Hard?”

Sights and Sounds: Puffing Billy – Dandenong Ranges

We were recently in Melbourne for a holiday and this is a good place to take the kids… If you have a child that loves trains – especially Thomas and Friends – then you really have to take him on Puffing Billy (up in the Dandenong Ranges). Puffing Billy is an old steam train that puffsContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Puffing Billy – Dandenong Ranges”
