First-Timer

Cinema
I’ve not been to cinema since Sarah was born. Every time we talk about watching movie Sarah will not show much interest as she was intimated by the loud sound.

And thing changed after she started schooling; Sarah has told me several times that her friends watch cartoons at cinema…I think she’s kind of envy towards them and she wish to do the same.

Well, finally she told me she is ready, on one fine day. We brought her to watch Madagascar 3 and I thought she will be nervous throughout the 1.5 hours show, but she did not. Sarah was quite enjoying although she cover her ears for the first 30 minutes!

We had a pleasant movie day-out and Sarah was looking forward for the next one because she loves the popcorns so much, unsurprisingly.

Enfagrow A+ Smart Camp
It was coincident we bump into the Enfagrow Smart Camp at Sunway Pyramid. Sarah was hesitant to join the games and activities, but she was attracted by the goodies and “maze” set-up in the game.

After much struggling, she summoned enough courage to finally join the camp!



Sarah showed a little anxious throughout the activities but she was so proud of herself that she can make it to the end and got all the freebies.



We are proud of her too.

Of Baking and Cooking

I have to agree with my blogging friend Joanna. She said I was bitten by “baking bugs”.

This recipe never failed me (touch wood). I have attempted many times and it usually turned out good; it goes really well with rice.

Give a try, ladies.
