Museum Trip

March 6, 2014 Leave a comment


We went last Tuesday, on the 4th of March, for the Look & Find activity at the National Museum. We were given worksheets with pictures of some of the artifacts on display. It was a brief introduction into history, from plate tectonics, a bit on ice age and sea levels, prehistorical human remains,stone age tools, cave drawings, pottery then bronze and iron age, the start of trade and so on. It was nice as a prelude to my attempt at introducing history to the children.

I’ve been forever looking at Story of the World, and not quite buying it, and just as I’m getting on to it, I met a fellow homeschooling mum who has actually gone through the first volume, and they live nearby! Good to meet other homeschoolers, and working mums homeschooling!

I remember seeing the copper reliefs when I was a child, but no pics taken, since they were mostly reliefs of people, Hang Tuah etc.

So we had a Craft Show & Sell on the 3rd of July 2013 and we had a booth for DIY finger crocheting hairclips or brooches, and we had (just four) hair pins to sell (ha..ha..), but it was a good experience for the kids.

Our Booth - Finger Crochet

Here's a pic of our booth, with two of the four pins left.

And there was an art competition. We sat outside a few days, for inspiration, and looked at a few books of flowers. On the first day, Hasan produced this, real quick, no thinking, just like an artist!

Ladies/Girls Swimming hunting

June 23, 2011 Leave a comment

So I was looking for swimming lesson for dd1..

and these are the contenders so far:

  • Supersharkz -Shah Alam /Pandamaran, RM120/2hr/week = RM60/hr by ex-national swimmer couple
  • Learn2swim – Kelab Golf Danau, Bangi, separate times for 5-6 yrs, 7-17 yrs, and men/women swimming lessons
  • Seal Sunway Swimming – really cheap with an offer at RM220/12 hours = RM18/hr, open for 6yrs above
  • Aquadolf – PJ, 3-6yrs,RM200/6classes=RM33/class, 7-12 yrs, RM125/4hrs/month =~RM32/hr OR Rm350/3months = RM29/hr
  • there’s also a private instructor, I think a lady from the e-mail: salmiahbs-at-yahoo-dot-com OR selesa33-at-yahoo-dot-com, even has her(?) phone no. onsite, but too lazy to lookup my history now for the site web add

btw, all the above lessons are in the klang valley. I’m aiming for aquadolf for lessons for my dd and possibly a dip in with my toddler as well, since instructors are ladies. also looking for other mummies to join in with their daughters learning, kalau boy,  if > 4yo, I’m not comfy la with swimming clothes on to dip in skali, but mummies in pool just for fun is still in discussion anyway..


finally got a reply from aquadolf. no more swimming classes! 😦 but they may be open to women only swimming,we’ll see..
I’m looking forward to a Muslimah only swimming pool in PJ, inshaAllah it’s due to open in Shawal!

Lagu Lompat Getah (Skipping Rope Song)

June 3, 2011 Leave a comment

So finally I found a local skipping rope song that’s familiar, thanks to Mariah Rohaini.

Rumah terbakar panggil bomba,
Bomba datang berlumba-lumba,
Anak kambing patah kaki, (lompat dengan satu kaki)
Anak kambing pandai menari, (melompat dan berpusing)
Anak kambing makan rumput, (tunduk dan cecahkan jari pada tanah)
Anak kambing masuk kandang. (lari keluar dari getah)

Crafts, games and fun!
