I’m one of those people where I hate crowded places and I hate queuing for long periods of time, especially when you’re hungry and just need to fill up your tummy! So recently, I came across an app that could do the queuing for me! It’s called QueQ, and is a Thai- based community mobile app that helps us to eliminate the hassle of queuing up at my favourite dining outlets.
As you guys might know already, K FRY is one of those restaurants that can get really ridiculously long queues, which is why I haven’t tried it till the day I found out about QueQ. Anyway, the process was pretty easy: Continue reading
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort is a family holiday destination that brings together a LEGOLAND Theme Park, Water Park and Hotel in one LEGO themed location. With more than 70 hands-on rides, slides, shows and attractions, and designed for families with children aged 2-12, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort has a new baby in town- SEA LIFE Malaysia!
SEA LIFE Malaysia is the first SEA LIFE to open in Malaysia and is located at the heart of Iskandar Puteri, right next to LEGOLAND Theme Park. I got a first-hand experience to look into the brand new 2,123 square-metre indoor aquarium and what an experience it has been!
Entrance is through the ground floor where you will already be greeted with some marine life and LEGO figures, but the real adventure starts on the first floor, where you’ll find yourself in a 360° view of hundreds of yellow tail fusilier swimming around you in their Shoaling Ring. Continue reading
It’s 2019 and all of a sudden so many of my ex-classmates are having babies! In fact, we even have a mummy WhatsApp group to share our questions and stories. And because I’m the most senior one there- the only one to have 2 kids at the moment- all my first-time-mummy friends are asking ME for a list of items to buy for their baby and advice on what’s not necessary.
So, instead of having to type out and re-think every single time someone asks me this question, I thought why not come up with this baby shopping list- so I can share with them what i think is necessary and what’s not.
So here’s a baby shopping list which I personally think are necessities, and which I think are not necessary when you are shopping for your first baby.
We don’t think about it often, but it is in those moments when someone in your household sustains an injury or burns themselves that you wished you had some knowledge on first aid. Having a 2 year old and 2 months old at home means that I have to be constantly alert and ready to take on any minor accidents that happen at home. Because of this, I decided to meet with Dr Mohammed Ridzuan Abd Razak, Senior Resident Medical officer, Pantai Hospital Kuala Lumpur to further understand what we need to do if burns or bleeding occur at home.
As careful as we may be, accidents do happen when we least expect it, so it is best that we equip ourselves with some first aid knowledge. For this issue, we’re focusing on burns and bleeding. So here are some important information as well as some steps and tips on how to handle burns and bleeding at home.
How many types of burns are there and what are they?
Burns are generally divided into 3 types of burns as per below:
Touch is a very powerful element in human bonding. In fact, the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) suggests that parents introduce touch as soon as the baby is born. This can be done with skin-to-skin care or kangaroo care. While you’re holding your baby close, gradually start stroking their legs and back. Then move on to other areas such as the arms.
After the first few weeks of birth, you can begin massaging your baby. But there are a few dos and don’ts of baby massage that should be taken into consideration in order to provide the best experience for you and your baby.
Follow your baby’s mood
Your baby should be calm, alert, and content when you’re ready to give them a massage.
Have a cozy atmosphere
Massage your baby in a warm, quiet place. Place them on a towel on their back so they can maintain eye contact. This can be on their changing table or on your bed.
Gentle and soft strokes
Strokes should be as gentle and soft as if pressing your eyeball.
How often to perform baby massage?
It depends on you and your baby. Some parents give their baby massages daily, while other parents massage their little ones every other day. You can massage your baby during the morning to get the day going or at night before bedtime to help soothe your baby to sleep. Pay attention to your baby’s cues to help determine the best massage routine.

If you live in the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, you’d understand how precious time with our loved ones can be. Minus the time you’re at work, the hours you’re stuck in the traffic jam, and then prepping for dinner; what are you left with? An hour of quality time with your babies before you say goodnight to them? Not a lot of time when we’re constantly working five days a week and sometimes even on the weekends.
This is why I find going on a little getaway every once in a while such a necessity. It doesn’t necessarily need to be out of town, in fact you’ll find a number of places that are perfect for a staycation right here in the city. Staycations are a great way to take you out of your routine and give you quality bonding time with your little family(especially if you’re living with your in-laws or extended family).
My boys and I recently stayed at the newly opened Alila Bangsar. Located right in the heart of Bangsar, the hotel occupies the topmost floors of a mixed-used development known as The Establishment. We were greeted at the hotel’s sky-level lobby on the 41st floor and was instantly amazed by the beautiful view from its wide and fully glassed windows. Filled with natural light and fresh greenery, I could tell that the hotel was an environmentally conscious one- and I was right. Continue reading
