First week of school & kindergarten

My toddler is attending Kindergarten and it's his first week. Sadly today he cried so much when he refuses to go. My dear and I have tried out best to persuade him.

Now my toddler with a habit of changing his Kindergarten uniform only in the car. It also depends on his mood whether he wants to get down from the car or not. It's not easy as my toddler is not well in speech but he is picking up step by step. He is slow speaker just like his brother. It takes time for him to talk, my big boy started talking more when he's 4 yrs old.

It's important to get the children sleep early but it's not going to be easy. Seem my big boy has comes up with terms and conditions when I ask him to do revision on studies. Standard Three this year is going to be a tough year for him as he's weak in BM (Malay) and BC (Chinese). I would say the writing will be tough as he doesn't know many words.

I was told by friend the other school, sons's classmate transferred there in Putra Height. The principle ask the parent to transfer their children because they didn't know Chinese language. I am shocked to know of that, aren't children suppose to be given chance to try before asking them to give up? She told me that her friend's with twin children started Standard One there, the principle was happy when her friend decided to transfer her children to other school.

My son is not good with some subjects so he's going to tuition, even his classmate. I am surprise that even high score students are going to tuition as well. That's why tuition center are depending on children's results to see if they are willing to teach the student or not. Don't be surprise if you find tuition center that like to teach students with good grades as easier for them to pick up.

This afternoon I attended the  jointly launched by Antabax and Hospital Sg Buloh has a simple life lesson for everyone to learn for their hygiene, health and happiness, which is to Always Be Clean (ABC). Being mommy of two boys, I know that it's important to keep our children hygiene and safe. This is meaning health campaign, continue read on to find out. 

The ABC of Back-To-School Health campaign that was launched at Hospital Sg Buloh, here today aims to inculcate better hygiene habits among Year One students by teaching them the basics of good hand hygiene, and giving them role models in the form of older students from Kelab Dr Muda to model their behavior on.

The ABCs of Back-To-School Health campaign will benefit three school in the Sungai Buloh area namely SK Bandar Baru Sg Buloh, SK Sg Buloh, SK Bkt Rahman Putra, equipping more than 3,000 students with the basics of hygiene that can be among the most effective methods to prevent the spread of communicable diseases that are spread via unclean hands.

Above is the Director of Hospital Sungai Buloh, Dr Khalid bin Ibrahim. He said that while the hospital is a national center of excellence, it is very much a part of the local community and is focused on programs that will improve health outcomes.

More than 200 students and teachers from participating schools, parents and hospital staff joined the launch where they learned the importance of hygiene in a fun, interactive session that was research-based yet easy to understand.

In light of the flooding in the East Coast, Perak and Johor, the need for good hygiene practices among children and adults is even more important as a preventive measure to reduce the spread of communicable air and water-borne diseases. The current cooler weather due to cold north-easterly winds may also contribute to a rise in incidence of the common cold.

Antabax, a proudly Malaysian antibacterial personal care range has been actively championing hygiene and health through innovative education, awareness and training programmes. The brand collaborates closely with Hospital Sungai Buloh, a noted center of excellence for the prevention and treatment of communicable diseases in Malaysia in developing campaigns that are timely and relevant to current health issues facing the nation.

The ABC (Always Be Clean) of Back-to-School Health was developed in response to the situation at flood relief centers, and as a way to help kindergarteners transition to the more independent lifestyle of primary school.

Lam Soon Edible Oils Sdn Bhd, Group Product Manager, Household & Personal Care, Marketing Division, Ms Angeline Sim, explained that the urgent need to reinforce hand washing habits to prevent the spread of communicable diseases such as influenza and diarrhea was apparent
from the situation at flood relief centers which were often housed in schools.

Mom and son day's out at Kidzania KL

My son so happy waiting for his turn and he's wearing cool sunglasses that I bought him in Genting Highlands. The sunglasses cost RM10, the security guard at Kidzania also ask me where to purchase this cool sunglasses. Does he looks like Robotcop/Cyborg? What else can you think of? Eventually it ends up becoming my headband as he didn't want to wear it all the time. Achievement today, I manage to sign him up for Kidzania Passport yeah he's having his own passport. He can used it until 17 years old. Just one time payment of RM30 during registration, it's one time payment only. He will need to change/upgrade his passport if collected 30 stamps can go another level of passport. Last level would need to collect 60 stamps. 

Today is the day I brought son to Kidzania KL, thanks to my dear for sending us as he's not working today. Son is excited and happy as he been waiting his for few months. He didn't join any field trip during his tuition. I am happy to have won passes to Kidzania and I decided to bring my eldest son as my toddler wasn't ready for long hours play time. I bought a RM15.90 necklace pouch for son so he can put the passport/money while play. They have many choices and price range from RM15.90 to RM28.90. I saw many cute nice patterns for gals.

I promised him that I am going to bring him to Kidzania during the school holiday. Next Monday school starts, today many parents bring their children to Kidzania. It's crowded after 1pm, he didn't wait for long for some jobs that he loves. He's first time being a pilot, cashier, window cleaner, heatlh researcher, CSI and many more. He did total of 12 jobs in Kidzania, one of them he learned to make chocolate. He was worry that he's not able to play Fireman as many kids usually waiting but with my encouragement he just waited 15 minutes then it's his turn to play.

We have been out all day long, from morning until night. After Kidzania, we head to Ikea. We thought of having dinner there but sad to say due to crowd and lack of space to sit. We didn't have our dinner, I miss eating the meatball in Ikea, never enough of having them!

Today is last day of school holiday so Kidzania open from 9am til 5pm. But we only enter Kidzania at 10.30am and he finished playing around 4pm.

Tonight my feet is feeling sore, so tired feet. Walking all day long as we also bought a table light for son's study table. How about you? How are you spending your weekends?

2015 Year of Goat

I haven't update this blog as now I have time, first to say Happy New Year to my friends/followers/readers/visitors on my blog. Above makeup of me was taken last year, when I attended my cousin's wedding. I done casual makeup post too on my lifestyle blog.

Being mommy of two boys, I find that being mommy we have many things to do. But don't neglect ourselves yeah, we need pampering time too. I find that best pampering moment is not about going for spa but having love yourself doing something nice like makeup or dress up.

I bought a red blouse for CNY this year. The blouse I bought at RM15, I consider it very good bargain as I bought from Parkson. You can check out Parkson if you are heading there. I saw there is RM19 Chinese New Year trends type of blouse too. When comes to shopping I check on price and budget I have. How about you? When comes to shopping do you have a budget on it?

Though I saw some products of hair care or skin car I need to purchase. I would think first before I purchase let's say I haven't finish using them or are the products on promotion or sales. Don't forget that all products have an expiry dates. Always check your skin care products! Talking of shopping, I know my dear needs a new pair of working shoes, he is still hunting for it. We need to find a suitable day to go hunting for his shoes. He haven't got time the XES Premium Store. I can't purchase for him as he needs to try them by himself, even though I know his size but he prefers to shop for himself.

Chinese New Year just few weeks away, have you got any plan to go where during the school holiday? Some of my friends have plan to visit KL, so I suggest they bring their kids together to go Discoveria in Avenue K, they also can check out Dinoscovery's Trip Advisor page

It's never too early to plan for Prosperity

You know I love being Malaysian because I love to eat... pineapple tarts one of my favorite too! 

Cultural festivals celebrated in Malaysia are valued for one important reason: their predictability. From Deepavali to Aidilfitri, the masses return to familiar routines, customs, habits, and cuisine they commit themselves to once every year, usually in the company of friends, family and euphonious laughter. People already know what to expect when they balik kampung to celebrate the festivities with their loved ones, and it is precisely this anticipation to experience the familiar that only comes once a year which keeps such cultural celebrations alive. To usher in the Year of the Ram next Chinese New Year, SCS takes on the ambitious task of upgrading a familiar festival classic, the pineapple tart.

Chinese New Year is coming soon, I am sure many people are preparing baking for many types of cookies. I don't know baking pineapple tarts but I know where you can find recipes to bake them. Scroll down to read more info. 

For generations, this sweet and savoury bite-sized pastry is a must have for family reunions during the Chinese New Year and whose quality make for impassioned conversations between middle-aged aunties wanting to perfect their own pineapple tart recipes. The shape and size of these delectable treats differ from region to region but none have dared deviate from time-honoured proportions that produce the tarts’ distinctive flavour and aroma. It doesn’t take a connoisseur to know that the pastry itself plays an equally important role as the pineapple jam filling. Just as it is inconceivable to celebrate Chinese New Year without these tarts, the creation of buttery, fluffy, and crusty pineapple tarts is impossible without quality butter, like SCS butter.

However, easily replicated perfection simply by the procurement of the right ingredients is never an indication of innovation. As such, SCS takes a step further by introducing eight newly developed pineapple tarts, complemented with a variety of flavours, to enhance and update a much beloved classic. These new varietals include Pineapple Cream Cheese, Pecan Pineapple, Berrylicious Pineapple, Chocolate Brownie Pineapple, Caramel Pineapple, Creamy Mango and Pineapple White Chocolate, Oatmeal Pineapple, and Green Tea Pineapple.

Baking enthusiasts interested in the recipes for the pineapple tarts above can check out SCS’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/scsdairymalaysia or their YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/SCSDairy. Recipe booklets for the tarts can also be obtained from select supermarkets. Coming January 2015, SCS will be launching an online-driven pineapple tart contest, so keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates.

LetzHop Sesame Street English Learning Program

Last Saturday morning, mother and son were excited to attend the LetzHop Sesame Street English Learning Program. My son attended the the branch in Damansara Utama Branch (Damansara Uptown) located at No. 64A, 1st Floor, Jalan SS21/56, Damansarara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. For your info, the branch is located at corner lot, the PapaRich's upstair.   

LetzHop Eduspace Sdn Bhd brings to Malaysia, Sesame Street English – a comprehensive learning platform that caters to teaching children English. Designed by the non-profit educational group behind the iconic children’s TV series Sesame Street; the Sesame Workshop goes beyond just academic learning by focusing on creating a curriculum that addresses learning by encompassing all aspects of your child’s growth. 

Each child is greeted upon entering class in true Sesame Street style with a lot of laughter and a large dose of fun. My son and other children go into the class and learn, with the familiar faces of their favourite furry muppet characters. Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and the whole Sesame Street family are present in every aspect of the course from classrooms, from the wallpaper, the uniform, teaching exercises and even on the worksheets, everything has been officially licensed and comes directly imported from the Sesame Street Workshop.

The offered programs are suitable for children from age of 3 year to 12 years old.

Children enjoy themselves as you can see in the picture. Short video clip in instagram sherrygo,

Sesame Street English began as a simple idea in the United States to teach children through television and 40 years later is a worldwide educational phenomenon that has reached millions of children in more than 150 countries. Each programme is specifically tailored to the unique needs of children based on their country, culture and local educators, the Sesame Street English programme has produced sustainable quantifiable results. "Using today’s technology, Sesame Street English represents the evolution of the interactive learning experience, and engages and provides children with the opportunity to enjoy focused lessons that will build the foundation for English proficiency” - Sesame Workshop

The key mission of the Sesame Workshop is to harness the educational power of media to help children everywhere reach their highest potential. Classes are taught through media interaction with an emphasis on content learning, in the same way that the mother tongue is taught. Focusing on doing more than just ABCs and 123s, Sesame Street English allows the children to be able to interact with the Sesame Street characters via multimedia devices as well as through songs, dance and traditional academic worksheets. All of course outfitted with the names, faces and culture of Sesame Street.

The LetzHop Sesame Street branch is carpeted so children just need to remove their shoes to put in the colorful shoes rack that is near this wall of World map and 7 Continents.

Yeah there's a nice Ernie & Bert's Reading Area, below picture some reading material to show you. 

I can say kids fall in love to reading their favourite characters of Sesame Street. 

Wall of fame in one of the class, yeah it's all childrens' artwork.Can you spot the Cookie Monster? 

The environment, the characters and materials all work towards establishing a high impact productive environment that goes beyond just learning how to read and write. The Sesame Street characters become lifelong friends that will be there to teach, learn and guide your child through all the critical development points of their early years.
Things that I believe parents will not have their children messing up with colors.

It's alright you can do it in LetzHop Sesame Street, look how each child is having great time with each other. 

Above Puan Sarini Bujang, Principle of LetzHop, Damansara Uptown Branch. She explains of what color being used and also it is alright to be messy because they are having fun painting activities. The children were pointing on the right color to use? Hehe.. it's fun also to test the children to see if they are paying attention in the class. 

Working together with like-minded foundations such as LetzHopTM has been the critical link in continuing the growth of the Sesame Workshop. LetzHopTM is set to bring the Malaysian edutainment market to the next level with the introduction of Sesame Street English; the class brings a new take on interactive entertainment so that children grow to learn that education and fun go hand in hand.

Pretty creative artwork activities done by the children. 

The lessons covered from developing the foundation of English language through expose to language via songs, chants, videos and other fun, child friendly activities to complex content such as reading, writing, grammar and several relevant aspects via a smartboard. As above my son was looking for the book, it was fun for the children as they took turn to try finding the book. The smartboard is a touch screen device. 

Can you guess the song they are going to sing? Scroll down this post to find the video clip of the song.

Puan Aishah Abdul Rahman, Executive Director of Letzhop Eduspace Sdn Bhd says “Malaysia is a tri-lingual country with the main language being Malay, but English remains an important part of our lives. The Sesame Street English programme aims to not only teach but inspire and give children the confidence to speak English as a native speaker. This unique programme that combines education and entertainment is the right formula that gives high impact of a productive learning that excites and keeps children coming back for more”.
