Farm in the City – Seri Kembangan

The children are learning about animals at school so they took a visit to the Farm in the City in Seri Kembangan.

Hercules has been nuts about alphabet trains lately and he stumbled on this one while we were searching for alphabet train songs on Youtube.

Sights and Sounds: The Bird Park

I took Gavin to visit the Bird Park on Wednesday with SM and M.  It was the first of our play-date cum home-school excursions together.  From the looks of it, the boys enjoyed themselves and we’re planning to schedule more activities.

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”
