I want to see Gruffalo! And so we did!

Since introducing Ayra to The Gruffalo film, she would ask to watch it again every few days. It was a good change to her usual YouTube video requests. When the opportunity to meet The Gruffalo in person, I got excited, but didn’t dare reveal it to Ayra till the date of the meet-and-greet, to spare myself from explaining why she …

Reasons why we rather pay more for toys

I am a shopaholic, especially when buying things for my girls. I used to buy something new (big or small) for Ayra every week, when we had only one child. And we ended up with many different types of toys, books, stationery etc around the house. When Zara came along, I felt that the purpose and value of play has …

Created Our Own Playhouse

I wanted to get a playhouse for Ayra as she loves watching kids role-playing with their Barbies and dolls on YouTube, but I didn’t want to spend too much money on a solid one that will stand through serious rough playing by toddlers (aka Playmobil). Not sure whether or not Ayra will want to continue playing with a playhouse and …

Our Playrooms at Home

Since we moved into our new home in 2012, we’ve done well, nothing much to it. Just that the amount of things increase almost too quickly, and we did some reconfiguration a few times since.
