Happy Chinese New Year & Happy Holiday


I know this weekend will be filled with fun for some people, I don't know of mine. Anyway above picture of me I tried out the C Michael hair dye which is my mom's favourite colour. I used the exact same colour that she used before but it turned out my hair is not like hers. I guess my hair is darker so it doesn't show off the redness of the colour. I choose the radiant red colour for this Chinese New Year. 

I had my hair cut but above picture is before the hair cut. I did hair cut in Midvalley which cost me only RM10. 

What's your plan on this Chinese New Year or Holidays? 

Some of my son's friends been asking about my eyes, they don't know why I have squint eyes. Eventually one boy asked if I am blind, if I am blind I will not be able to see I told him. My bro K always tease me of my eyes, a few years back a relative told me that her grandson also have squint eyes and he undergoes surgery which cost RM6,000.

Looking for suitable lighting for your home

It's a few days away from Chinese New Year, my friend told me that her home is not ready for move in. She's looking for suitable lighting for her home, her home is under renovation she has time to check out contemporary lighting online. My friend likes to shop online because it's convenient and hassle free for her. She told me that her home is second hand home, many things need to be replace.

I visited the website and find it user friendly and easy to browse. They have categories of chandeliers, bath fixtures, ceiling fixtures, foyer and hallway, floor lamps, table lamps, pendants, outdoor lighting, wall scones, and ceiling fans. If you have interest to take a look of what mention above, do click on the link.

I check out the ceiling fans online and find they have two types of ceiling fans, indoor and outdoor. I would prefer indoor ceiling fan for each room of the house except for restroom/bathroom.

Free shipping is available on orders over $50.00, find out how you can save up to 50% on all top brands. You can check out their shipping policy for details of where they ship. With Internet access today we can shop online.

Shopping diapers for my toddler

How's everyone on this Monday evening? Yesterday we head to Midvalley for shopping diapers for my toddler. It's baby fair there, and I bought 4 packs for Huggies each pack RM27.88. The sales person insists me to purchase 8 packs so there will be a free duck pool. Sad to say, I have bad experience with previous shopping of Huggies with freebie. I doubt I am going to purchase 8 packs plus the car in basement 2, the diapers are heavy!

At the fair they have only two brands available Mammy poko and Huggies, so I am unable to compare other brand.

As for my friend, she did purchased 8 packs because she's expecting her newborn this coming March. I saw the duck pool it's not very big, though it looks cute but I decided that I only need 4 packs. We still training son to be diaper free.

The freebie swimming pool that we got previously no longer available for my children to play. The swimming pool have leakage and can never be repair.

Bricks4Kidz Blogger Session



I am sure everyone is familar with Lego brick. Do you know that you can learn and play with Lego brick?

Last Saturday I was invited to attend the Bricks4Kidz Blogger Session, I met with mommy Celeste and Jane. They too bring their children for the sessions. It is fun sessions for the children. My son and Jane's son are put together as partner to build and learn about Dragster model which they are going to build. 

 It is widely acknowledged that children learn better when they are having fun and are engaged in the lesson at hand. With a view to nurture and shape as many young minds as possible, Bricks4Kidz™  (B4K) has established four centres in Malaysia for the first time – in Sri Petaling, Sunway Giza, Petaling Jaya and Cheras, to effectively combine education with play.

At every B4K centre, children will have access to 130 proprietary B4K subject lessons that are designed to enhance their knowledge of the principles of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Following set project kits and model plans, each lesson bears a different and exciting theme such as Space, Inventions, Famous Buildings and Amazing Animals where children learn to design and build using LEGO® bricks. For example, for children to learn about the Laws of Motion such as inertia and mass, they would have to design and build a clock or see-saw out of the LEGO® blocks. It is through this building process that children will come to understand and apply the concepts better. 
Furthermore, as most children will undoubtedly love playing with LEGO® blocks, learning about basic engineering and mathematical concepts through them will certainly encourage the children to be interested in science as well. 



Teacher Lisa of B4K Sunway Giza, explaining to the children about the sports car or race cars. For example what's touches the ground first for the race car. There is a picture of white and black flag the teacher asked children if they know where they can see it.


The children were given a Bricks4Kidz project kit to start of with Dragster Model. There is a manual booklet in it where children can refer to build. 

 The children get started to build and they learn of team building to make the dragster model.
Teacher Lisa explains to the children why the dragster model not moving probably, they need to check the Lego brick they put together. 

After the children build the Dragster they are given chance to play racing. Look how happy they are, they take turn playing racing to see which dragster model is fastest. Besides my son, Jane's children having fun too. The sisters build the dragster model together. 

Some very nice Lego models I find in Bricks4Kidz, you can view more picture at instagram sherrygo.

Above picture of mommy blogger me with Jane and Celeste, and Mr Demitrius Lam.

“With more than one centre opened in Malaysia, it is our hope that more children will be able to benefit from B4K’s unique educational programmes, and grow up to become successful architects and engineers in the future. If and when that happens, we in turn can look forward to their contributions to the growth and productivity of the country!” shared Mr Demitrius Lam, Managing Director of Creative Child Development Sdn Bhd and Master Licensee of B4K.


An internationally recognised child enrichment centre, B4K nurtures children to develop important life skills that will help them handle challenges in school and life, as well as to pursue viable careers in the future. Recognised for the programme’s success in 16 countries worldwide and over 300 locations in the United States of America (US), B4K is tailored specifically for children between the ages of four and eight, serving as an essential complementary programme over and above their regular education.


“Besides developing their creativity and imagination, learning with LEGO® bricks also helps children to develop sequential problem solving skills, advance their spatial and relational thinking, enhance EQ, foster teamwork as well as social and emotional skills, and nurture process-oriented thinking. The focus and patience required to complete their weekly projects will certainly help them to believe in their abilities and to have the confidence to overcome any challenges that may come their way. These are essential life skills that will shape their formative years until well into adulthood,” explained Mr Demitrius.

He continued, “Classes and modules at B4K are age-specific. For four-year olds, classes are conducted at the centre using LEGO® DUPLO® toddler building blocks, while five and six year-olds have the option of participating in B4K’s on-site and off-site mobile programmes held at kindergartens or community centres. On top of that, classes using set project kits at the centre are offered to those aged seven and above.”

Parents can also sign their children up for any of B4K’s many holiday camps, where they will be able to push their creativity and imagination to the limit within a high-energy, fast-paced setting, together with their peers. Additionally, parents can send their children with fun-filled, engaging field trips and/or organise special B4K birthday parties on their special day.

With such a variety of exciting and fun-filled educational activities at B4K, children can indeed learn, build and play their way into a bright and successful future ahead!

Do you know that baby skin cells are smaller than adult skin cells. Baby skin is 30% thinner than adult skin.

I want to thank Johnsons for giving me the opportunity to attend to understand of how's toddler's skin is still not ready for adult cleansers. The adult cleansers we are using are not suitable for them. I get to know of what cause eczema and ectopic eczema.

The importance of cleansing is not use remove unwanted material effectively, help prevent undesirable consequences such as infections. Not just killing the 99.9% germs, but modify the local environment for "good" bacteria to grow.

What we need to look for a mild and gentle cleansing product for babies should?
  • maintain the skin hydration without disrupting its pH, lipid and humectants.
  • be mild and gentle for non-sensitive type of babies' skin, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, with approved low allergenic potential preservatives & fragrances.
I am sure everyone knows that Johnson's baby has been in the market for many years. Do you know when it started? It's in the year of 1895. Johnson's baby is expertise in defining baby care over 119 years, Johnson's baby has been a leader in understanding of infant skin needs and creating products that meet these needs, bonding between baby & mother and designing products to reinforce this natural bond.

Johnson's baby have a strong commitment to safety & performance with all products undergo thorough safety review and clinical safety evaluations. They have clinical studies are performed to ensure mildness to both skin and eyes to demonstrate skin benefits.

They don't sting the eyes, and clinically proven mildness.
