Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2019

I hope it’s not too late to wish everyone a wonderful joyous Christmas season,
and a very Happy New Year 2019.

2018 has been one roller coaster ride for me and hubby, emotionally, career wise - to be specific.
Thank God. Towards the end of the year, eveything fall back to it’s place.

May 2019 be a brighter year, and may God continue to bless all of us.

Hohoho



xoxo from our own little corner.

Aquaman (2018)


The movie was too long.
The jokes were not funny.
Worst of all, speakers in Hall 5, MBO were really bad.

But my kids loved it, I guess that’s what matter the most.

Coffee Code, Kuching

Heard a lot of good reviews about this place.
And saw lots of insta worthy pictures of their food and drinks too.

I guess that's the current definition of a must visit place, don't you think?
So, on the Saturday, after our evening Mass at BDC, we wanted to try something new; and Coffee Code is just right within the area.

Here's what we had on our 1st visit here. 
Everything looks pretty, taste good, a bit pricey but what's you pay for insta worthy pictures, right?!
Still cheaper than Starbucks what..
Honey Rose Milk - RM7.90
Oreo Milkshake - RM12.90


Cheessy Chicken Roll - RM16.90

Sweetheart - RM14.90

Perfect Match

Coffee Code, we will definitely be coming back.

Eugene’s last day in SK

Result UPSR sudah diumumkan, bermakna berakhir lah sudah perjalanan sekolah rendah bagi Eugene.  Tahun depan dia akan memulakan babak sekolah menengah pula.

Throughout his 6 years in Primary school, I believe his had gone thru one happy phrase of his life in school.  He never complaint about school days, always the 1st one to wake up and get ready in the morning. Part of it also thanks to his 3 best friends, Anson, Dexter and Felix, I am sure they will cherish their time together.
Briefing by Guru Besar

The best friends

As for his UPSR result, no he didn't get a straight As.  He got exactly what he deserves, dengan usaha nya yang cukup makan, result pun cukup makan.  
We are happy with his result.
Keep up the good work, son.  A little more efforts, a little less games, I am sure you can go a long way.

WAK2018 | Art Street Kuching

Before going to this event, I try to search for the event details, yes I know that this is a part of the big What About Kuching festival that is going on at the moment, and yes there are bit and pieces of information uploaded on social media.  However, I just cannot imagine the flow of the program.

After a visit to Indah House on the 1st day of the event, I can conclude that the Art Street Kuching consists of 3 distinct program.

1st one is the Ruangseni, a mini-gallery with artworks, photography and short film screenings.  The mini-gallery takes place at Indah House, Upper China Street, Kuching.  The gallery is open to public from 22nd to 28th October 2018.




Short Film Screenings

2nd is the Street Theatre, which only takes place on 21st and 27th October 2018, from 7pm to 9pm.  Artist performing include:
"Nikal Pulai" by Ardilla Latif, Walid Ali, Qawiem Hamiza.*

“River” by the ‘Talents and the Performing Art Centre’*

"Wanderer" by Derek Kho*
 *Information and photos from https://www.facebook.com/artstreetkch/

Upper China street will be closed to give way for Street Theatre show.

Last but not least is the Sketch Hunt 2018.  This program is organised by Urban Sketchers Kuching. Here, a group of 2-4 team members will be given a set of question and they need to go around within walking distant to search and sketch the answer on the papers that were provided to them.

Sketch Hunt is an interesting program that can be developed into something bigger like the Heritage Run.  I am sure many would love to join this activity if it was promoted well and with lower entry fees maybe.  This time, they are charging RM60 per team.  Personally I think the prize is not a major factor;  by joining this hunt, you will get to discover more about the history of our beloved city - Kuching.

Art Street Kuching in Upper China Street is an art-oriented community experience in-conjunction with What About Kuching Festival. What About Kuching 2018, a 1-month-long festival, is a celebration of arts, culture and lifestyle.

This is a 2 days event, starting from 10am till 6pm, if you cannot make it today, make sure to stop by tomorrow, it's your last chance.  Do bring your children along, they would love it!

To infinity and beyond.

Eugene exploring the movable cardboard columns - 'Breaking The Screen' is a cardboard pavilion designed with a mechanism of movable columns aimed to encourage children to reconfigure the structure and break apart the screen that divides them, allowing the children to interact with the structure itself in order to play in and with it together.

Cardboard City is one of the many events line-up in-conjunction with What About Kuching 2018.  What About Kuching is a 1-month-long festival, a celebration of arts, culture and lifestyle.

Eugene is 12

My boy is 12! sob sob, ok Mummy, don’t get emotional, this post is not about you, it’s about Eugene.

So, on his birthday, Eugene did not want any present from Mummy, instead he wanted to choose his own breakfast, lunch and dinner place and menu.  Ok boy, that’s an easy fix.

Happy Birthday, Eugene. Mummy loves you.

Kitto as wanted to join the group photo :D





P/s: His ambition (as of the month) is to be a vet by day and a chef by night.
