Ideas For Rainy Days Off School

Rainy days off school can be frustrating for everybody. The kids just don’t know what to do with themselves, and parents often feel helpless when it comes to keeping boredom at bay. Many kids have short attention spans - there are only so many films and TV shows you can watch before they start getting stir crazy!
In preparation for days like this, I like to make sure I have a few supplies tucked away. For instance, a couple of cake making kits so we can all make cupcakes and have a sweet treat after dinner. That tends to kill an hour or two. Having a hefty amount of craft supplies is also a good idea. Then the kids can really use their imaginations and set out to make anything they put their minds to, from a necklace to a robot! 
I know some kids like to play computer games and games consoles. That’s OK in moderation, but I usually try to ensure that most of the games they play are educational, so they are actually learning and improving their skills as they play. If you want some more ideas for when you’re all stuck in the house on a rainy day, check out this infographic!

  1. Yes, my girl likes to spend her holidays at home, relaxing, doing things she enjoys...instead of going some place and coming home dead tired.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
