Lessons from a Hiking Adventure in Kota Damansara

Over the Summer Holidays, we took a hike through a new trail in Kota Damansara. I had never been there before, but I thought we would try something new. I think I remember seeing the words “family friendly” somewhere and figured the boys could manage it. The trail we took was pretty easy up untilContinue reading “Lessons from a Hiking Adventure in Kota Damansara”

So hiking is just another way to get him moving and hopefully increaseContinue reading “Hiking Trails – Bukit Kiara”

Sights and Sounds: Hutan Simpan Bukit Nanas

The boys had their annual eye examination. G2’s hyperopia appears to be slowly correcting itself. G1, unfortunately, has developed mild myopia. Although it is not significant enough to warrant getting him glasses, I am concerned. While myopia has been linked to hereditary genes, there is research to support its prevention by spending more time outdoors. AccordingContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Hutan Simpan Bukit Nanas”
