I burst out laughing when I saw this on Facebook. This is so me!
This is a throwback post. Missy’s school organized a fundraising recently and students are encouraged to participate by dressing up as your favorite celebrities. Those who participate would pay RM3 I think, for the fundraising. So when I asked missy which celebrity she would like to impersonate and she said someone that does not look too girly. After thinking for a while, she told me she wanted to dress up as her ↓
She wore a black tee from Pull & Bear, pants from H&M and daddy’s tie. Do you think she looked kinda similar to Avril’s iconic style?
Are you always on-the-go and are looking for a good portable or travel high chair for your child? Are you like me who do not like to use the restaurant’s high chair because it is dirty? When Ashley was a toddler, we did not have a portable high chair. I would use wet wipes to give the restaurant high chairs a good wipe down before I put her in. Sometimes the restaurants we go to did not have high chairs available and if they do, the high chairs have no restraints. Bummer eh?
When we traveled, I would sometimes feed her in the hotel room. Hubs would have to hold her while I fed her food. Wished that we had gotten a travel high chair because it would have saved us a lot of time and sanity.
If you have a young child, a portable high chair or travel high chair can make life a lot easier. Below is my guide to finding 5 Best Portable High Chair / Travel High Chair that you can get from Amazon.

Listening to Bon Jovi
while on a road trip
Are you a fan of Bon Jovi? What’s your favorite song? Mine is
1) Someday I’ll Be Saturday Night
2) Livin’ On A Prayer
3) I’ll Be There For You
Listening to songs or singing out loud releases endorphins in the body. This will relieve pain and reduce stress. If you are feeling stressed, please read this advice from Betterhelp.
Lately, there have been many unicorn theme items for sale. Unicorn pyjamas, tees, slippers, bags, stationery and even unicorn Christmas ornaments. Missy loves unicorns too and have been checking out Unicorn products whenever we are at the mall, especially at Typo. Here is she’s holding a pillow with a unicorn image on it and was hoping that she can have it. Nope, I did not get it because we already have a few pillows at home.
Then we saw a pair of unicorn plush slippers which cost around RM99. I know she wanted it but later she said not to buy because it is too expensive. Glad she understands the essentials of money.
When I was growing up, Milo was one of my favourite drinks. I would drink a cup of Milo before going to school. That would keep me full until recess at least. Now, Milo is my 12-year-old ‘s favourite drink since she was a toddler. Whenever we are at a restaurant, she would opt for Milo drink or whenever we are at a convenience store or gas station, she would choose a packet of milo to drink while on the go. Her favourite breakfast? Milo with cereal or just dunk some bread into a cup of hot milo.
According to a study by Nestlé , 1 in 4 children in Malaysia skip breakfast. This deprives them of the energy they need to perform in school. Nowadays school hours are long and the syllabus is tougher. It takes a lot of energy to get through the school day. This is where Nestlé MILO® beverage comes in. This energy drink is a unique combination of vitamins and minerals which provides an efficient release of energy, reduces tiredness and supports normal body functions to help children do their best.
Recently Milo has launched a Back To School Mums initiative in line with the brand’s campaign to highlight the importance of breakfast in giving children the energy they need to take on a school day, with a larger intention to foster greater understanding amongst parents about what goes on in their children’s day, strengthening the bond between parent and child. Mums were sent to the same school as their child and put through the exact schedule that they have packed their child with. From the early morning rush for the school bus, to every lesson in school and every activity thereafter, mums did the same.
They finally learned how unbelievably long and tiring their children’s day was. They realised the need to give their children breakfast so that they have the energy to take on their day. More importantly, the need to communicate and understand their children better.
The films are quite heart-tugging for me as it shows just how tough the school life is nowadays and what our children have to go through.

The UPSR Exam result will be out this Thursday, 23 November 2017. If your child has sat for the exam this year, are you ready?
Did a really last-minute treat for missy’s friends in school. I totally forgot all about it. For the past few years, her old school celebrated Children’s Day at the end of October so I usually prepare some Halloween treats for the kids. Now that she is in the new school and there is no Children’s Day celebration, it just slipped my mind.
So while on the way home from hub’s aunt’s wake, we went to Watson to check out some candies. Glad I found some lollipops. Then I started the DIY Halloween Treats as soon as I reached home.
I used tissue papers, black and orange strings and a sharpie to do these Ghostly Lollipop Halloween Treats. Just something fun for the kids at school.
Last Saturday, I did another DIY Halloween Costume and this time is not for missy as she does not want to dress up this year. So I did one for the pooch.
I used a headband, a piece of cardboard, cotton, a straw and glue gun for this DIY.
Can you tell what that is?
I dress Buffy up as a Frappucino and she is known as “Buffycino”. The look on her face is hilarious!
Went to Starbucks to get the green straw for this diy project. Gave her lots of treats for her to pose for the camera. Happy Halloween!
So last Wednesday was Pyjama Day at school and students who would like to participate can dress up in their PJs the whole day. It is also part of a fundraising thing and those who participate would have to contribute RM3 + another RM5 for a burger lunch.
Missy was so excited and looking forward to going to school in her pjs.
I asked her to choose a toy to pin onto her pjs and initially she went for Mr. Bean’s Bear. Since it was too big and heavy to be pinned, she took the Ikea Bear. She sleeps with a few soft toys every night and these bears are one of them. Loads of fun at school.
The UPSR exam is finally over. Yesterday was the last paper which was Chinese subject. Although we can finally relax, I can’t help but feel a bit sad. For the past 2 weeks, we have been saying goodbye to the caring tutors who have guided missy for the past few years. It was her last day at the primary school yesterday too as she is starting middle school today. She told me that she felt sad leaving her friends because all of them are going separate ways and she is leaving school earlier than the rest of them. Today, a new journey begins for her.
