We reached KL! Enjoying themselves at their granduncle's place

I'm v kancheong cos I haven't received my email…

Ok received the email! I hope it works!!

Any recommendations on dayre posts about cooking /cleaning/ child rearing I should save? 😅

I've backed up some of @Joey and found coaster kitchens WordPress… i want recipes that have been tested and well loved!

Xie xie!

Wow this weBlogIt is fast…lemme go see how it's like now haha

Bleach I can't even log in

Bought asparagus and now I can't decide how to cook them! Sauté? Steam? Bake? Grill?

They look like little snakes sssss

So anyway my friend asked if my kids would like to be photographed in cheongsams. I agreed cos she said I would get to keep the outfit heh heh.

These are some of the pictures and I love them! We did it at my friend's place and she had all these cool props.

The cheongsam are quite traditional but they have a nice cutting and the arm holes aren't too big.

They have adult ones too but errrr I don't have cheongsam body so nevermind!

Anyway I'm super impressed by this!!!!

A cheongsam with pants! And POCKETS.

"Deep enough to put smartphone" the girl assured me.

Sigh if only I could love fashion more and food less.

So yes, do visit goldenscissorcheongsam on IG or better, go to their shop at People's Park and buy. Not sure about their prices but…

Pockets! Pants! Cool cutting!

Fave is having a deal on Snacky chips!!


My way of keeping dayre alive – baking recipes I just discovered from a dayrean who isn't writing anymore…

@Joey_eat_fit_play 's banana Nutella muffins. Because I need to finish my bananas and Nutella.

Because I don't want to pack too.

Because because…

Wah I love the resurgence of posts!

It's like "oh this app is going to be wiped out let's write as much as possible till it dies and explodes"

And I feel like Im living in an online dystopia – everyone going about their lives, then suddenly an earth shattering event happens and BAM! someone steps out (MOCKINGBIRD!)or we all scatter as refugees into various other shelters.

Who's to say it won't be better?

I for one did not realize there is life beyond blogspot and WordPress.

So now there's weBlogIt, Stellar, bloglovin and dunno what else.

So I shall live with hope. That it will be better.

(Or maybe step into the real world a lot more and stop surfing so much social media 😳)

But keep those posts coming!

Stoning at the playground.

Sun and outdoor time is good for them even though I'm steadily becoming darker…

It was good while it lasted.
Now to start backing up


It's a catch 22 situation. I want to write, but if I write I feel like I'll have to back it up.

But if I don't write I won't have anything to backup and it will slip away.

Should we go back to blogger? To WordPress? Instagram?

So sad. I really enjoyed reading #dayrehomes and all the reno stories. I loved living vicariously through the food and travel stories. And now it's going to be shut down.

Mid week and it's the busiest day!

No1 started her conversational Malay class today. It's an MOE initiative for p3 students to learn another language, so chinese students can take Malay and Malay/Tamil students can learn Chinese.

I think she would have had more opportunity to practice in Cantonment because her current school has very few Malay students. But I think she has one or two in her class so I told her to practice with them!

The textbook is very colorful and cute! I wonder how the chinese one is like shall go google

Can't find a picture of the chinese textbook but here's an article about this program!


I wonder why the school above engaged external trainers though? Was it to protect their teachers from being overworked? I have no idea if my girl's teacher is from the school or hired externally.

Notwithstanding the usual national education messages about racial harmony and etc, I really appreciate this initiative. In the past you couldn't take a 3rd Lang unless you did really well for PSLE, and then it was examinable and stressful.

So this is nice, like a fun fun thing (I HOPE) and she can make friends with people from other classes and order stuff when we go Malaysia!

The only thing is she does come back tired…

And her piano teacher can only teach her on Wednesday 😞

So have to monitor and hope that she can cope!

And that I won't go mad picking and sending them back and forth

Currently wed is –

Morning do chores
Send no3 to school
Immediately walk over to pick no2 up and chat with no1 for awhile at the playground
Send no2 home and give her lunch
Pick no1 up 1 hour later and feed her a snack
Make both nap
Pick no3 1 hour later
Chase no3 home after playing at playground
Come home wake girls up, prepare for piano teacher to come
Piano lesson over/ cook dinner
Watch children eat.
Make them washup and sleep

Hmm looking for spring cleaning options for mattress and sofa. Saw this company advertising on Facebook so messaged them.

How are the rates? Good? Chop carrot head?

Anyone has any lobangs? #dayrehomes
