Coloring is 1 of the milestone in the development
progress. I believe there are a lot of children development milestone out there
for parent’s reference. But for me, I always let it free for my kids. There is
not right time to start for my kids to have coloring activity. As long as there
are interest, happy, likes ….why not?
You always can find this type of yam in Chinese vegetable’s
stall or Chinese style pasar pagi/malam. Last time this vege is not very
popular as not much people know about it. It’s getting famous now a days as it’s
rich of nutrition. So far, I just use it to cook soup and porridge for my
kids. Maybe one day I can try sauté method to test the taste. Ingredients: 250gm HuaiShan / 淮山 / 山药 200gm spareribs 1 sticks medium size carrot 5g wolfberries 30g odoratum / 玉竹 Directions: 1. Boil the spareribs about 2 minutes and rinse to clean
with cold water. 2. Soak the wolfberries and odoratum until soft and rinse
to clean. 3. Peel the carrot and huai shan and cut in chunks. 4. Add all the ingredients in 1 little of water and
simmer for 2.5 hours. 5. Taste with some salt.
I found some colorful vegetables are full of nutrition.
I believe this Chinese Spinach also the same.
It’s has green leaves with red stripes. Wonderful vegetable because it
is rich of protein, Vitamin A, B and C. It has double amount of iron that
compare to the regular spinach has.
So, this type of chinese spinach always is my 1st
choice compare to the regular spinach. In fact, other than stir-fry it with garlic; prepare
it in soup also another great cook. It’s will look not very presentable to mix it for my
kid’s porridge, but the taste still good. Normally I used to mix with some anchovies’
powder to increase the liking.
Ingredients: 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp minced garlic pinch of salt Directions: 1. Preheat the wok and add in olive oil. Stir for few
second until the garlic is aromatic. 2. Add the spinach and stir for 2-3 minutes. Add some
water if it’s too dry. 3. Until the leave is almost wilted and add the salt for
taste. 4. Dip up and blend to puree. Mix in 1 tablespoon into
cooked porridge and serve. 5. Store the balance in ice tray.
This is another art work before Hari Raya. I guess the
teacher giving this art work should be because there are also Malay children
studying in the kindergarten. Now days, more and more Malay parent willing to spend
a bit more sending their kids to Chinese based kindergarten. As far as I know,
Chinese based kindergarten fee are double up than Malay based or Indian based
kindergarten. Last but not least, wishing all Muslim friends and
family Selamat Hari Raya!
Not long ago….he bring this back from school. It’s really
surprise us and this is considered his 1st art work from this
school. Even though we know 90% should be the teacher’s effort; but when he holding
it and run to the father and said “ superman ar…. Papa superman!” ….really
melting papa’s heart!!
I have spending 2-3 weeks time to quick survey the
kindergarten around my housing area. I will update my survey the other post. Come back to here, since I am rushing to enroll him to
join the second semester for the childcare thus I have very limited choice. Most
of them are full, so I strongly recommend you start the survey at least half
year advance. I am not going to tell what should be considered during
kindergarten chosen as there are a lot of advises that you can found in mummy’s
blog. Here, I just would like to post some of his handsome shooting
trying the sport suit.

your special emotion.
Hehe….i found mine in this ordinary chicken soup. This
