Back To School Again

Published by under Et Cetera

It’s back to school day for the kids again. It has been a long two weeks break for the younger kids as prior to the official school break, there were having additional 4 days off as the standard 6 kids were sitting for their UPSR exam.

It has been a great holiday, where the younger kids spent a week at the grand’s earlier and then another week in Penang doing lots of fun activities.

It’s a bit hard to settle down without feeling school blues. Even I have to readjust myself. Getting ready for work.

I wonder how JS feels going back to school for the first day after UPSR exam whereby it suppose to be in a celebration mood but now they still have one more paper to sit on 30/9. The atmosphere must be totally different than they earlier expected it to be

GUESS Kids Fall 2014 Collection and Campaign

Published by under Uncategorized

It was such an honoured for us to be invited to check out the latest GUESS kids  Fall Collection 2014 at KLCC outlet last Saturday.

Girls generally love fashion! So I only brought along my 3 princesses for the event.

It was a really casual and informal event. Though it started 30 minutes late, but the girls had a blast browsing through the store. They went gaga over almost all the outfits available at the store.  How they wish they could own every piece of it.

Brand manager Rachel briefed us on the signature Guess denim apparels

Love the Guess denims.

After we have been walked through all the Guess apparels features, I have decided to get an outfit for JE. (Well, since most of the time she always gets hand me down from her sisters, it’s fair to occasionally give a a treat on brand new one)

JS is the one who has an eye of fashion, selected an outfit for her baby sister and dressed her up

Style Mylo. Her two sisters said she looks “high class” wearing a Guess outfit

We met Amber Chia at the event and have a photoshoot together. :)

The Fall 2014 collection is features the wild wild west cow boys and cow girls theme. It showcases the season’s must‐have silhouettes for boys and girls seeking a stand‐out wardrobe. For the girls, denim dominates the Fall collection in the forms of skirts, jeans, jackets and chambray tops. Light‐weight cardigans layered over ruffled floral print dresses add a sweet, youthful touch. For boys, plaid button‐down flannels and distressed denim jeans give an effortlessly cool vibe to the collection while graphic sweatshirts and tees paired with dark‐wash denim add to the relaxed feel. Classic navy blazers, denim jackets and warm jackets are must‐have layering pieces for the crisp, Fall weather.

GUESS kids is currently running a promotion. For any 3 items, you are a 20% off. 30% off for 4 times. On top of that you will are entitled to RM100 rebate if you spend more than RM400 in their outlet. Plus another 10% off if you are a GUESS list member.

If you happen to shop at GUESS kids outlet in KLCC and 1 Utama, you and your kids will also get a free photo souvenir and enjoy snapping pictures in the TINY WILD WEST photo booth.

Batik Workshop @ USM

Published by under Homeschooling

Yesterday we  attended our very first outing with a group of homeschoolers in Penang. Through a new friend that was introduced to me via a mutual friend, I signed the kids up for Batik Workshop at USM. The workshop was held at the Muzium & Galeri Tuanku Fauziah USM. The batik workshop is RM15 per pax and tie dye workshop is RM5 per person.  Though this is not the first time the kids doing Batik work, but it was their first doing tie dye and canting. In fact WH and JS drew free hand on the fabric instead of tracing the design. Most important aim for this outing is for us to network, make new friends and hopefully in future we can participate in more outings together with the Penang homeschoolers circle.

Ice Bucket Challenge & ALS

JS was nominated by her friends to take up the Ice Bucket Challenge. I am not against this for charity purpose, but somehow I find this youngster, tweens and the mass had somehow taken it to a wrong direction without understanding the true purpose. The youngsters especially these primary school kids thought it’s something fun and cool to do. They are mere trend followers without knowing the true meaning and purpose for this cause.  Anyhow, I told her what ALS is about and so as why they have this Ice Bucket Challenge

Here’s the link to the video she recorded and edited all by herself .

A day after she posted the Ice Bucket Challenge video, I was searching for Jdrama to watch. Such a coincident that I stumbled on a drama series that is based on ALS patient. I just have this feeling that someone , somehow is trying through other channels to raise awareness about ALS.

Boku no Ita Jikan 僕のいた時間  (The Hours of My Life) is really a heart wrenching drama showing the challenging path an ALS patient is going through. But here it’s overcome with unconditional love from family, friends and love one. I cried bucket watching it and don’t mind watching again and again. The soundtrack is very nice too. JS watched the first two episode with me and from the drama, she can at least grasps what ALS really means.

Interrupted Sleep

Published by under BR_PU

Have you ever have the experience of sleeping with someone that snores loudly in their sleep? It’s truly annoying especially when you are died tired and try to catch some sleep.  My partner snores, very loudly so as my kids. It’s so irritating that sometimes I have to go to another room to sleep. I read about snoring relief pillows and wonder how effective it is. Really tempted to get one to try. I saw promotion of snoring pillows from cityofsleep.com. Going to get one to try it out.
