Snax Box # 090 Trees On My Waffle

I gave the kids the gardenia blueberry waffle.  Cut them into half and divide into two snack boxes.  I used cheese to make two trees for lil princess and put some 'stars'  on it.  The yellow star food cup contains of some cornflakes and honey stars.  Her dessert was a marshmallow, strawberries and a tiny cherry tomato.
With the left over cheese, I was only able to cut one more tree for lil prince and two tiny stars.  He also had some strawberries & cherry tomato.  The smaller food cup has some cornflakes and honey stars as well.

I bet the first thing that they eat in this snack box are the stars!  Coz it taste like sweets to them :P

Snax Box # 089 Veggies N Fruits

The theme for Monday was Veggies N Fruits ^__^.  As soon as the kids were taking their afternoon nap, I prepared their snack box for Monday.  I boiled most of the veggies.  I gave lil prince broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, corn and some cherry tomatoes.

For the fruits food cup, I packed some mini green grapes and strawberries.  Lil prince loves to eat mayonnaise.  In order for him to eat his veggies, I gave him some mayonnaise sauce for him to dip.  I told him it's like eating his fries with tomato sauce :)

I love this snack box as it's so colourful....I have green, white, orange, red and yellow!
Hopefully no Monday blues for him :P

Our Experience with Huggies Dry Pants

When my lil princess started walking, we realized that it was pretty difficult for us to wear her diapers as most of the time she would struggle, turned around and stand up.  That was when we started using diaper pants on her which was much easier and convenience.  One of the brands that we have tried was Huggies Dry Pants.  It is an easy-to-use option for active infants and toddlers.  You just need to try it and you’ll see how easy changing can be when all you need to do is just pull them up, tear and go!
Huggies Dry Pants has soft stretch sides to provide better comfort and help prevent red marks even when your baby is on the move and a quick lock system to help stop leaks.  When we started potty training on our lil princess, we use the huggies dry pants on her.  It was easy for us whenever we want to bring her to the loo, we just need to pull it down and wear it back if it was still dry.  On certain occasion where she had ‘accidents’, we just need to tear, change and go!  Just like the saying in Bahasa Malaysia “ Koyak, Salin dan Lepas!”

We love to use diaper pants whenever we go out as it was very convenience for us.  We no longer need to look for a baby room to change diapers for our lil princess.  We can change her diapers  anywhere, just find a corner where there are not many people.   The most important factor of using the huggies diaper pants was that it help to prevent diaper rash for my lil princess.

I love this photo from huggies, must teach my lil princess to this stunt!  So cute!

Snax Box # 088 Mini Cream Puff

On Tuesday,  I only need to make one snack box for lil prince as my lil princess was required to bring a cake to school.   She was going to have cake party activity.  Hence, I went to the cake shop to buy her a piece of cake and at the same time I bought some mini cream puff for lil prince.

I place two tiny "hearts" on top of the mini cream puffs as I felt that they look a bit plain ^__^.   I use my heart food cup to put two tomatoes and a strawberry food cup for the tiny red strawberry.  What I like most about today's snack box is the biscuits :P.  A friend of mine gave me this smiley face pineapple biscuits during CNY.  I think it's super cute!  Looking at the biscuits already makes me happy!  For the little space in the middle, I squeeze in the butterfly marshmallow.

Snax Box 087 Green Butterflies ^_^

Helloooo....how was your weekend?  Hope all of you had a good rest!
For Lil Prince
Last week I went to pasar malam and bought the green tea cheese cake and today I made GREEN butterflies for the kids ^__^.  Put some cheese at the corners of the butterflies and also some sprinkles (the pink and purple small dots are sprinkles that we use to put on cupcakes).

I gave both of them some grapes, strawberries and added some honey stars.  To accompanied my green butterflies, I also added a butterfly marshmallow.
 For Lil Princess
I saw these mini grapes in the market last weekend and I love the size of it.  They are smaller in size as compared to the normal grapes.  I felt that it is suitable for my kids as I don't have to cut them into two.  It fits perfectly in my snack box.
Wishing all of you a great week ahead!

Kid's e World @ The Gardens


 
This was a back dated post.  We went to Kid's e World during the school holidays last year.  Kid's e World was located at The Gardens.  This is place is really every kids dreams.  It was our first time there.  Kid's e World has a state-of-the-Art Play Land and a lot of specially patterned Toys in Motion.


We went there together with my neighbour's kids.  The entry fees during school holidays was RM 50 per entry.  I almost hesitate to go in at first but the PIC told me that I can opt to buy the weekend voucher instead.  It was RM100 for three visits (valid for three months).   If you go during weekdays, it's cheaper (RM30 per entry).  The first time, lil prince went alone and during our second visit, we brought along our lil princess.

Personally, I like this place a lot.  It is clean and well maintained.  As for my lil prince, no doubt that he absolutely adores this playland.  We spent almost five hours inside.  The kids really had a good exercise because all of them fall asleep on our way back.  While the kids had a good time playing and running around, we the mummies also had a good time chit-chatting.

Here are some photos taken on that day.

Huggies Upcoming Roadshow



Although both my kids have been potty trained, you will be surprised to know that we are still using diapers for them.  Currently my lil prince is using huggies dry pants and lil princess is still using Mamypoko but they only use it for night time.  We were so afraid of washing our bedsheets in the middle of the night as there has been several occasions of 'accidents' happened at night.  We had to wake up at wee hours in the morning to clean our kids and wash our bedsheets.  Hence, it's better to take precaution as I will not risk my beauty sleep again ^__^.  Last year December we started our potty training with lil princess and I hope I will have time to blog about it soon :P.

The “Huggies Dry Pants: Change for Better Convenience” roadshow is happening from 25 February 2013 to 3 March 2013 at Mydin USJ.  There will be live performances, special promotions, giveaways, games, magic tricks and activities to keep you entertained.  Do bring your families there for a fun-filled Huggies event.  You may also get some free samples of Huggies Dry Pants and lots of chances to win goodies!

Snax Box # 086 L-O-V-E

I have a few of these heart shape cookies cutter at home.  Hence, most of the time you will see me preparing lots of heart shapes bread for my two kids.  I guess they must be bored ^__^.  Last weekend, I made some konyakku jelly and thought it would be nice to have a theme for my snack box today---> LOVE! I know Valentine's Day is over but love is still in the air :)

For Lil Prince snack box....
I gave him a heart shaped jelly and two heart shape bread with cheese.  If you can see the shaped of the biscuits, it is also a heart shape :P.  There is also a heart shaped marshmallows and some honey stars.  To bad, no heart shaped honey stars, else I would definately put them together.

For Lil Princess Box...
I normally prepared a simple snax box for my lil princess as she was still young.  I gave her two heart shaped bread with cheese and the heart shaped biscuits.  Instead of giving her the konyakku jelly, I packed some grapes and strawberries.  There was also a heart shaped marshmallows in the middle :)

Here are the two snack boxes for my lil ones to tell them Mummy Loves You!

Happy Chinese New Year 2013

 Gong Xi Fa Cai!!

Happy Chinese New Year!  I guess I am the last one to wish all my readers Gong Xi Fa Cai.  Hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed CNY with your family and friends.  May the year of snake brings you lots of joys, good health and all the good things in life.

I had a very busy start of for the Year 2013.  Lots of work from office and at home.  I had very limited time to myself and hence, there's almost a one month break from my blog.  Whenever I had any free time, I just wanna have some rest.  I also have less bento-ing moments for my kids food box.  Most of the time, I just prepared simple snack box for them.  I hope I can boost up my mood to blog and also to continue my bento moments.
We didn't buy many stuff for this year CNY as we assume we will be travelling and most of our relatives were not around.  Despite my busy schedule, I managed to squeeze some time to make these doggies cookies.  Thanks to Merryn who shared this wonderful recipe with us.  You may check out the recipe at her blog.  It was pretty easy and my kids loves them.  Besides these cute doggies cookies, I also fried some crab sticks and some potato crackers.
The cuties lining up in my oven ^__^

Now, it's time for me to catch up with all the mummy blogs....Have a great week ahead!

Snax Box # 085 Flowery Cheese

 Lil Prince Snack Box

This year I need to prepare two snack box for the kids and sometimes I just ran out of ideas.  I have not been so hardworking lately.  Only on weekends, when I have more time to think and plan for their food box the next day.  Last week, we went to Jusco to buy some groceries and since I bought some GREENs, I packed it for lil prince snack box.  I boiled the broccoli and cut a few pieces of cucumber.  Added some 'cheese dip' (in the red food cup) for him to eat together with the veggies.  We bought some cheese cake and I cut them into flower shape and decorated it with stars.
Lil Princess Snack Box
For lil princess snack box, I only gave her some cheese cake, honey stars and biscuits.  Both of them also had fruits for desserts.  I always like to pack fruits in my kids snack box.  Added a small colourful marshmallow for lil princess too.

Both of them came back with an empty box yesterday!  Really worth the effort.  I always have the satisfaction ('moon chuk kam' - in cantonese) when my kids ate all the food that I prepared for them.  I felt that it's such a big achievement for me ^__^ .  How about you?  Do you feel the same too?

Vege Painting with Lady Fingers

I was cooking curry with some lady fingers last weekend.  While chopping the heads of the lady fingers, I thought it would be nice to let the kids have some fun with vege paintings.  At least this time round I don't have to waste so much of the vegetables.  I used to buy a whole lady fingers, cut them into half and use it for vege painting.  
I use some crayola paint and let the kids have some fun painting with the top of the lady fingers.  We don't normally do paintings at home as it was a bit messy.  However, after I have used the crayola paint, I find it easy to clean as compared to other paints.  We don't even have to use soap to wash away the paint.   Although it was a little pricey but it saves me a lot of hassle cleaning up.
 My lil prince had lots of fun painting and as for lil princess, she was just messing around with the paint.  This activity sure keeps both of them occupied for some time.  We hope to do more of these activities at home in future :P.  One of my new year resolution this year was to have more Play N Learn activities at home for the kids.  Hopefully I will have the time to do that *keeping my fingers cross* ^__^.
