Egg Painting…

Yes, I am still posting about our Easter Celebration…if you’ve been here then maybe you’re tired reading about it here and here and here already, but oh, well…spare some time and look at the pictures of my two beautiful kids if no time to read, hehehe! Promise, it will be appreciated…thank you!

Anyway, our first activity last Easter Sunday was egg painting. I just boiled chicken eggs and let the kids paint it, and here are the pictures…

CJ’s work…

Well, the paint that I got wasn’t not the right one for this I think, we used Crayola Washable Paints…next time, I knew better. But still what great is, they enjoyed it. And here’s what they did…painted eggs!

Isabelle…

CJ…

Yeah, you might be wondering the egg in the middle inside the pot, they did that at Fun Arts at K Village a day before Easter…

Next year, I will dye it first…and get better paints for them to enjoy it more! What important then was they had a great time doing it. And we are happy to see them having fun!

Egg Hunting…

…in the comfort of our home last Easter Sunday was fun! Easter Bunny came and left a lot of chocolate eggs for the kids together with the instructions that Daddy read to the kids! Lol. And to make their searched easier, Easter Bunny let some ribbon trails that they can follow and its a sign that there’s something inside…such a kind Easter Bunny, made my kids life easier. Hehehe!

Anyway, here are the pictures and its a lot, so please bear with me! I hope you will enjoy it…

listening to what Easter Bunny’s instructions…remember, he left a note! :D

Isabelle’s so fast, Daddy’s still reading the message from Easter Bunny…:)

Excited to open their huge paper eggs…:)

Showing the goodies that they got!

With their big happy smile…

Egg hunting bring smiles to them, joy and the excitement of finding one eggs from one place to another. At some point it also show how good Kuya, CJ is by helping Isabelle…and how sweet she is by telling Kuya also that she saw the green ribbon at some place. Nice to know that they are helping each other this early. I just hope that they can bring that good deeds as they grow older. Then after the egg hunting…Daddy let them watched a movie about Easter that he downloaded earlier!

After the movie, we all enjoyed the simple “sweet table” that I prepared, which I will sharing on my next post! Tons of pictures here already…hehehe!

How we prepared it? Well, its just the morning of Easter when they are having a bubble bath while they are busy splashing water and playing with the bubbles…K and I were busy putting all the ribbons and chocolate eggs around the house! And this is the second time we are doing it for the kids! We did it last year in Phnom Penh, Cambodia!

In the end, they both love it…Isabelle even asks for more, hehehe, we just told her that those are the only eggs Easter Bunny left. But we told her that next year, Easter Bunny will come again and hide some chocolate eggs or chicken eggs around (that’s what we used last year) our house! And she’s so happy with that, she’s jumping for joy!

Fun Arts 01: The Frog Prince

We usually go out on weekends and for the first time, we went to K Village last March 24 because I found online that they are giving free Fun Arts for the Kids every Saturday from 11:00am to 5:00pm, you can come between those time at the 1st Building, 1st floor…just in front of the Gourmet Market! So, this is a good place for us to go every Saturday because I am sure kids will be happy there and will keep them busy plus it is just near our place.

art area is under that tree…

Anyway, the theme that Saturday is about “The Frog Prince.” So, CJ and Isabelle painted a stone frog and made their own Prince and Princess Crown…

getting ready…

art table…

With the D.I.Y. Princess and Prince Crown…each kids were given a white crown-shaped cardboard and there’s a lot of different stones, buttons and beads ready to put on your  crown…its up to your choice!

CJ’s making his D.I.Y. Prince Crown…

While with your own Stone Frog…kids were given 2 piece of stone (Isabelle got 3 because of her charms, hehehe) then you will put eyes on it and paint it to your own style, then you will glued it to the paper cut like a leaf then glued again to the open sandwich box and they will asks you to paint the box or leave it blank then you can add some  butterfly flower…and its done!

Painting her own style Frog Stone…

And here’s my two artist, showing their works… crown and the stone frog!

 

And the two kiddos together…our prince and princess with their crowns on!

Its their first time to go there at Fun Arts and we are now on our 3rd week (will be going again this Saturday), they always enjoy our trip to K Village because its not just Fun Arts at all, you can also go shopping and just relax, everyone can enjoy the fun…and yes, lots of restaurants too and we’re trying one at a time…or just depends to which one we like! :) On this week, we ate at Coco Curry House Ichibanya which I posted here already. Kids were really happy and we are happy also to see them both enjoying our Saturday afternoon and the way they are loving arts!

Building Beakers…

Everytime I go out, I always have something for the kids…it doesn’t mean big and expensive all the time, they always appreciate small things such as toys or art stuff, books, foods or even flowers that I can pick along the way! Yes, as long as I have something to give, they will be happy!

Anyway, in my few trips to IKEA, I always get something for Isabelle and one of those is the Building Beaker design by K and M Hagberg and from MULA series of toys for children. It is  comprises of 7 beakers with different patterns and designs, made polypropylene plastic and synthetic rubber.

Makes play easy to vary; build, do a puzzle, scoop water or  bake sand cakes. It develops fine motor skills and logical thinking. Its 34 cm in height with a diameter of 9cm. Also it is durable plastic and easy to clean with water.  Recommended for 6months up. Most of all it only cost THB 60.00!

And here’s the little owner of the building beaker, meet my little princess…Isabelle!

I think she’s holding my IKEA Family Card here…

so lovely…

I am just so happy, lucky and blessed to have beautiful kids that appreciates even the smallest and cheapest thing I gave/made/did for them…and they always makes me happy with those hugs and kisses plus some sweet words. With this building beaker, Isabelle says this as she always does to whatever stuff I get for her: “Thank you Mommy for buying me this. I love you.” that comes with lots of hugs and kisses. So, I have all this reason to be happy having them…thanks God for these two lovely kids!

CJ’s Cooking…

Last Saturday, CJ prepared a dinner for us…he asks me many many times, million times if he can cook but I usually say no because I am scared he might get hurt or something, I let him helped sometimes with opening canned ingredients, and alike!

But a year ago, he had a Cooking Class in his school and even got an award for Excellence and Outstanding Performance in Junior Master Chef from Teacher Karen in Footprints School in Phnom Penh, Cambodia…

Anyway, to make the story short since it will be an easy meal, I finally give in and let him prepared a Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce for us.  Here’s CJ with a big smile while cooking…

He did all the boiling of noodles and cooking the prepared sauce to grating a cheese on top of each plate! I just checked if the noodles is really cooked already. And here’s a plate of his yummy and al dente spaghetti…

Then we had brownies from Goldilocks for the dessert, 3 of us got Classic Brownies while K got Coffee Brownies…

…its yummy, nice to have a taste of it every now and then! We are just lucky now to be near a Goldilocks store!

And back to CJ’s Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce, well, its really delicious…I’m happy he did well and at the same time, he had fun cooking! He is proud of what he done and prepared for us, we are all impressed and give him a hug after! Oh, after dinner, I asks him to washed the dishes but he said: “Chef don’t wash dishes, its not his  job anymore.” Hahaha…so, its my turn again! But thank you CJ for taking over and giving me some rest…we love you!

Swimming Time…

Summer arrived few weeks back here in Bangkok, might be still winter or spring already in other parts of the world but here its getting hotter each day! Having said that, being in a room with air-con makes one life nicer and we are lucky to have it in our new place. But yes, we are expecting high electricity consumption in connection with that. Huh! And one more thing that’s nice in our new place is that the common swimming pool…all residents can swim if they want but on our three weeks here, I’ve seen only few people in there! Anyway, last weekend, our family was able to find time to swim and we had great time!

View of the swimming pool area from our balcony…just lovely to see it each day! My kids loves to swim, so I am sure they will really enjoy this one!

So, here we are enjoying the pool by ourselves, hehehe….

And oh, they got some nice sun lounger complete with pad and a set of parasol to keep everyone comfortable…I also love this one, the gazebo area is just perfect for some small parties and get together with friends someday!

Hmm…I am sure we will be back swimming here again soon or maybe this coming weekend, afterall we just need to go down the lift. Well, I am looking forward for that really because its just great to do things together as a family and we all had a great time!

I am happy that I started cooking again since day 1 here at GardenGrove. I havn’t bake though but I will soon, for sure! Isabelle’s been sick since last Thursday but she’s fine now, just finished her last dose of antibiotic this morning.

Quick Meal at Sunrise Tacos…

Its Monday when we decided to eat at Sunrise Tacos located at Terminal 21…and that day, they have promo for kids called Li’l Amigos: Kids Eat FREE every Monday, lucky us! Every Monday children up t0 7 years old can order one free item from the Children’s Menu, one free drink, and one slice of apple pie or pumpkin pie when they are accompanied by an adult who orders a food of equal or greater value. So, there you go…kids will get free meal! *smile*

They got Cheese Quesadilla with Mexican Rice as side dish, orange juice and an apple pie…

…but I am very sorry I don’t have the picture of drinks and the apple pie! Kids loves the cheese quesadilla and the apple pie…its really yummy, I tried a bite or two or three…lolz!

Anyway, K’s order was a Classic Chicken Quesadilla: seasoned chicken with melted cheese and tomato salsa on a large home-made tortilla folded and grilled, served with a side of sour cream and salsa. And a bottle of San Mig…and he loves his meal, just lovely, he said!

While I ordered for Taco Rice and Cheese: (first time for me to try it…) Mexican rice covered with ground sirloin beef and nacho cheese sauce topped with fresh tomato salsa, lettuce, and cheddar cheese. According to them, this was inspired by the people of Japan and the US Marines. So, its big order…well for me! I like it and taste really nice but too much for me, CJ tried some and K finished it all.

I had it with Mango Frosty Fruit Freeze…in a 12oz. glass and its very refreshing to have!

Lastly, I would like to share these 3 interesting sauces on our table: Jalapeño Green Pepper Sauce, Chipotle Sauce and Red Jalapeño Pepper Sauce…I didn’t tried for I am so sure its all spicy! :)

All-in-all, our meal with them was really good and staff are nice…we love going there, I first posted about Sunrise Tacos here for more of Mexican foods!

We will be eating there again for sure, another Monday would be great…I think! Thanks to them for having a deal like that, our kids was able to eat free and enjoyed the meal.

Günthart Chocolate

A night before Valentines Day, we had dinner at Sunrise Tacos at Terminal 21 and after dinner we went around the mall, just to checked what’s new (after all, its like 10-15 minutes walk only from our current place…) and we found out that there’s chocolates, flowers and teddies booth at the lobby!

Isabelle got a rose from one of the booth, so nice of them to give our little girl one. Then we bought CJ some chocolates, small one to give to his friends in school and for his 2 teachers! We got Günthart Chocolate, a Swiss Boutique Chocolate…they have a booth at the lobby then! And we got these…

I just hope it tastes good but nevertheless, its the thought that counts! *smile* CJ went home happy and told me that they are all happy with it! And I am happy to see him happy.

Anyway, here’s my two wonderful kids having photo taken at the teddy bear’s booth decoration at the lobby…
