Introducing Ethissa – A Baby Online Shop

In case you have not noticed, I have a new banner on my sidebar. I would like to introduce  Ethissa  – a baby online store which sells premium and high quality products. Ethissa is a product of the founders Eric and Grace, a husband and wife team who named the online store after their children, Ethan and Clarissa – hence the name Ethissa. As new parents who are also working parents, they found it difficult to go to different places to buy baby essentials.  Therefore they decided to take matters into their own hands and set up an online store so many busy parents out there like you and me! can go to a one-stop online shop to get good quality baby products.

Here are some of the items that they have in their online store.


Skip Hop Diaper Bag. I got this one when AK was born. I love this diaper bag because it is so functional and looks trendy too! Who says moms can’t be trendy with diaper bags eh?  


See? They have straps on the side so that you can hang the bag on a stroller nicely  too. Genius!

 Kippins-Banner-05 - Copy This is too cute! This is the Kitty Kippin organic comforter . It’s made of 100% GOTS organic cotton, can be dumped into the washing machine for a good wash and it’s basically fuss free to maintain. It’s hypoallergenic and gentle on baby’s skin. This is the first time I came across this product line (Thanks to Ethissa). It’s definitely something which a baby can get so attached to – like AK’s smelly bunny.  MNL-Plush-Oscar-03-400x400This little bunny plush toy from Maud N Lil reminds me of AK and her smelly bunny. It’s made of 100% certified organic cotton which is perfect for sensitive skin and kids with allergies and asthma.  FCF-Baby-Kits-01-400x400 - CopyDon’t know what to buy for a newborn baby? Check out the Baby Kit by Four Cow Farm. This Baby Kit comes  with 1 x Baby Wash 125ml, 1 x baby Lotion 125ml 1 x Nappy Cream 125ml and 1 x Baby Oil 125ml. It contains 100% natural and organic ingredients.   BIB-CC-Flutterby-04This bib! I’ve not seen anything like this before – a bib with a teether! This particular one is  called the Cheeky Chompers Neckerchew – Flutterby. This is made in the UK, it’s 100% cotton and super absorbent too. It’s perfect for your teething lil bub who’d be drooling and wanting to chew on stuff when their pearly whites decide to make their debut. This product contains no phthalates or BPA.

Update of My Brief Encounter with a Sweet Malay Cikgu

Remember the sweet Malay cikgu I blogged about in 2 months ago? After 1 month, I decided to checkup on her to see how she was doing. True enough, she was indeed very thankful that her energy and vision has improved and she had already felt the improvement within the 1st month. How awesome is that?

And then today, she called me up to say that she shared about Super Lutein to all her ex-classmates and said that she is a walking testimonial because she is so happy and thankful that her vision has improved, her energy level has been boosted and the numbness on her hand due to water retention (she got it after her stroke. You can read about it in my previous post here.) has significantly reduced – all the improvements experienced after consuming Super Lutein.

2016-10-18_07-07-05Here’s what she said to me the day before yesterday……

When my members share their little victories, I know that I am on the right path.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge – Black Screen of Friggin’ Death!


I am so effing pissed off right now cause my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has suffered the black screen of death and the photo above is nowhere how it is right this instant as I type this. It is not friggin’ black! How did this happen? I am so pissed right now I can literally feel hot air coming out of my nose and ears!

It has started with a little screen discoloration. There was a tinge of green on my phone. My son pointed it out to me in the afternoon and I thought ‘Oh? Perhaps it was an indication that the battery was low since it was at 8%…’ Then la di dah…I didn’t take much notice of it till after dinner. I was going through my phone and saw purple smudges on the screen…then black lines! (WTF) and then soon after it suffered the Black.Screen.of.Friggin’.Death!!!! And mind you, this phone is only 1 month old. What the hell is happening Samsung!??

I tried doing a soft reset – you know the ones where you got to press the power and volume up/down button etc but all that didn’t work. And then I called the 24 hrs Samsung Smart Service (because it’s a bloody emergency!) and the bloke on the phone said that I gotta bring it into the service center to get it looked at and all and if the LCD screen has to be replaced, it may take days or weeks cause they ran out of LCD parts in the whole of Malaysia? Like are you friggin’ kidding me right now??? Like so much for the Samsung Galaxy Butler Service right? There’s supposed to be onsite pickup of the device but the bloke asked me to go to the nearest service center. DUH!…. Everything looks damn good on paper but when it comes to delivery?….okok  I shall not jump the gun. I need to go to the service center and see what they have to say. I hope that in the spirit of lousy, inconsistent customer service Malaysia is known to score in, Samsung will prove me wrong!

They better sort this shit out before I go to Japan next week.



*I feel like throwing the friggin’ phone onto the wall*

Update as of 19 Oct

So I went to the service center and they told me that 

1. They need to check if the LCD on the inside is broken. If it is, then that would not be covered under warranty (although my phone is 1 month old) and that was gonna cost me RM1100! 

2. Blessing in disguise – they ran out of stock for the replacement part. 

Why blessing in disguise? Well I got in touch with a friend who’s hubby managed to get Samsung to get a 1-to-1 replacement for my phone! Whoopee! The only thing is that it is going to take 3 days for me to get a new phone.  So let’s see….I hope I get the replacement phone (brand new unit) before I go to Japan!


Update as of 20 Oct

All good now. Samsung customer service called me up to inform me that my new phone has arrived at the Samsung Service Center! Yay! Thanks to my dear friend who helped me out. You know who you are. xoxo.

Japan! Here I Come Again!


Yes you heard me right. I’m off to Japan again.  I love Japan! I can so go there every year and not get sick of it. I love the country. I love the people. I love the food. Seriously. What’s there not to love about Japan? Well, thanks to Naturally Plus, I will be going away for a free holiday thanks to Naturally Plus. Not bad right? I share about the benefits of IZUMIO and Super Lutein and Naturally Plus rewards me with bonuses and free trips.  (Oh, did I mentioned that I will be going to Italy in Dec too?) Unfortunately though, my family will not be with me (soon….I’ll aim for it) but fortunately, I will be travelling with dear friends who are my business partners. This time, we will be going to Mount Fuji, the Super Lutein factory at Shizuoka, shop at Karuizawa Outlet and then shop at Shinjuku. The schedule will be packed but I’m sure we’re going to have a fabulous time!

I can’t wait!

Double Stud Earrings in Malaysia


Over the weekend, Ashley and I stepped into Lovisa and bought some accessories since there was a sale going on. 3 for RM30. Not  bad right? While my girl asked for a choker (I don’t remember wearing a choker at 11 years old!), I opted for this red double stud earrings. I know that this is not new and I  didn’t jump into the bandwagon when it was rather popular 2 years ago because I saw a woman who wore black double stud earrings and I thought ‘Gee whiz!!!That looks like a big fat mole behind her ear!”  This time round, upon stumbling upon these double stud earrings in the a beautiful shade of red, I decided to give it go.

So what do you think? Pass or not?

Somebunny is 2!


On the 1st October, we celebrated Amelie’s 2nd birthday. Since we didn’t have a party for her on her 1st birthday, we decided to put in more effort this time round to celebrate her birthday this year.  We all decided on a bunny themed party since she is so attached to her smelly bunny which she had since she was born. I bought her the same bunny plush toy as a backup last year  but lo and behold! She is fiercely loyal to her smell old bunny. It’s ok. As long as AK is happy. We’re happy. Ok let’s get to the photos! I am so excited to share them because it’s been awhile since I actually planned for a theme party. Some bunny is 2! These are my little elves who helped me prepare for the party! Not bad right??? They were more excited about the party than Amelie.Some bunny is 2!LOL! We had a mini (and messy) factory line set up to paste the thank you notes onto the party packs and then packed them with goodies aka junk. Don’t judge. The party packs were quite a hit if I may say so myself because some kids took 2-3 packs home. Thankfully, we had more than enough for the kids. Some bunny is 2!

Now is this cool or is this cool? Bunny themed paper cups! I stole the idea from Pinterest. So simply and easy to do! So cute too!
 Some bunny is 2!

The color theme was yellow and pink. I am pretty pleased with what we came out with considering the short amount of time we had to prepare all this. As usual, I’m always procrastinating and  before I knew it, I had only 1 week to prepare everything!!

The bunny bunting was DIYed. I printed a template from the internet and got Kakak to help us to cut it out on colored paper. Ashley strung them together and  glued cotton balls onto each bunny.


Party packs! Back when I was a kid, I don’t even  remember giving or receiving party packs at all. The  brown paper bags are from Daiso. I designed the thank you note in Photoshop and got the photo of the bunny from the internet. The design was printed on sticker paper and my elves cut them out and pasted them onto the party packs.


The maison jars were like rm1-2 each (a steal!!!) which I got from a mall  at KK called Megalong at Donggongon. I stuffed  marshmallows into them  and VOILA! Bunny tails for dessert anyone????



Don’t you think these cupcakes look pretty? They taste so darn  good too. They are vanilla cupcakes with pretty swirls. They are from my favorite baker – Abrina. She stays somewhere behind Eastin Hotel. PM me if you want her contact.

AK is 2!


And of course! We got to get her a bunny birthday cake!!! It wasn’t what I expected but oh well. It’s over. Cake was devoured. It was made by Abrina as well.   DSC07193-1

As for food, we hired a food truck! Woo hoo! The truck was parked in front of our house and our guests had to walk up to the truck to order their food and collected them as well. Food was delicious! If any of you are interested, look out for Azian from Bad Beat Burger truck # 4!! We had beef burgers, chicken burgers, lasagne, coney dogs, nachos, cream puffs for dessert. The food was great! Thank you Azian! She and her crew took care of us very well too! Oh and the balloons were thrown into the package too!


Lasagne and Chicken burger


The food looks good on the paper plate too. And yes, they taste good too!

Happy birthday to our beloved Amelie Kate!

2 years ago, we evolved from a family of 4 to a family of 5.

We look you to the moon and back and to infinity and beyond!!!!

*Kisses xoxoxoxox*


My Firstborn

Mending her ballet shoes. SheShe's all grown up now.

Photo taken on 3 Oct 2016

Oh how my firstborn is all grown up now. I’d be lying if I say I don’t miss the days when she was totally dependent on me like how AK is dependent on me. She likes to choose her own clothes, hairstyle  and even mends her own ballet shoes. Little by little, she is slowing gaining her independence. Let’s hope she doesn’t get ahead of herself so quickly. I met up with a dear friend of mine last weekend. Both our firstborns are about the same age and she made me realize that I needed to loosen my reigns on her and give her a bit of a space. Ok, I will try.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in Malaysia


I was so excited when news surfaced about the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 this year. I’m using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and let’s just say that I am itching for an upgrade. I almost got  the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 but when I found out that they took away the micro sim slot in the Note 5, I wasn’t too pleased with it.

I mean what in the world were they thinking?

So when I read about the new features of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and that they were going to put back the micro sim slot, I was dead set on getting my hands on the beauty. But recently there has been a lot of complaints (phone hanging and rebooting on its own) about the new units and this morning, I read that there have been reports of the unit exploding while being charged!  Perhaps getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is not a good idea for now….*sigh*

Little AK Likes to Scribble


Photo taken on 20 Aug 2016 (AK at 22 months)

AK’s sharpening her fine motor skills by scribbling. It’s amazing how territorial she can be because yesterday afternoon, she totally disallowed Ashley and Aidan from scribbling on her piece of paper.

Cheeky little girl.

Whenever I have my lunch, she would sit next to me at the dining table and start scribbling with her crayons. I’m looking forward to the day she starts to moving on to drawing more recognizable shapes.


Sometimes, she get cozy under her baby cot – thanks to Aidan. Since AK was a baby, Aidan has been playing peekaboo with AK from under her baby cot. Bless him.


On certain days, she likes to take over my workstation, scribble scribble and switch between fake typing and moving the mouse (trying to immitate me at work…Monkey see monkey do right?)


Haze in Malaysia 2016


When I woke up last night, I was greeted by the acrid smell of haze. Not again Indonesia!!!!. My eyes would usually tend to get watery and I’d be wiggling my nose and sneezing  all day but thankfully, I managed to survive so far (Thanks to IZUMIO  and Super Lutein of course!).

When the haze looms over Malaysia :

1. Reduce outdoor activities.

2. Wear a mask if you’re outdoors

3. Avoid smoking

4. Drink at least 2 litres of water – of course the more the better  to flush out the inhaled toxins.

5. Wash your hands and face after going outdoors

6. Increase your intake of anti oxidants to increase your anti oxidants level in your body.

I hope this haze is not here for long.

Today it is not that bad actually. We woke up to heavy rain showers and the sky is clearer. I hope it’d rain again tomorrow!

Till then, stay safe and take care.
