Stop taking Sausages and Ham I grew up in a small family and many times only my mom and I were eating at home for many years. It is not easy to cook for two persons and we are not exactly good at cooking. So we ended up with lots of junk food meals. My… Read More Stop Taking Sausages and Ham
” The bicycle wobbled. My arms were stiff with fists clenched tightly onto the handles. My legs froze. Before I could move any muscle, I was thrown off the bicycle. It hurt tremendously. My right knee was badly scrapped against the rough track surface. There were bruises on my hands and elbows. All my schoolmates… Read More How my children learned to cycle the safer way
In 2016, BoiBoy starts his formal primary education journey. I had put in a lot of effort to adjust the daily routine for GerGer and BoiBoy last December, so that they will sleep and wake earlier.

The artwork… Read More How to draw a cute flamingo [with Dagi Stylus, and Procreate on iPad]

It was just there, as if waiting for me to do something on it. I took out my iPad4, and decided… Read More Dagi Stylus P702 Demo Video
Before I had children, I didn’t enjoy noise that children made in restaurants, on the plane, and almost anywhere else. Now that I am a mother, and have (sort of) gotten used to the noise, I don’t get disturbed by noisy children. Instead, my attention will be to see if I can tell what the… Read More It is a good thing that the children are noisy.
On good days when time falls on my lap, I’ll make worksheets for the children based on my earlier post about phonemes and Letterland sounds. I share one example in this post.
