Choose Your Own Adventure Books

~ Posted on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 11:44 AM ~

I like to get books for my kiddos. If the topics are too advanced, I will read it to them during bedtime otherwise whenever I noticed any particular interests from them in any topics, I will try to get the books to further ignite their fire. My personal opinion is to ignite my kiddos' reading passion, we have to make books available to them easily. And I honestly think my strategy works for our kiddos!

Anyway, I was telling our kiddos months ago that I used to read this type of books during my early teenage years, whereby after we read a certain page, there are options available at the bottom for the reader to choose to do this or that. If you choose this option, you will be directed to a page to continue on from the option you make, so on and so forth until you reach the end of the story from your many decisions made along the way.

I told my kiddos it was so intriguing that while reading a book, we can also play a part in it by making our own decision, choosing our own paths and then see how our decisions affects the direction of the stories. They were curious and seem excited there is such books available. Little did they realised that mummy also want them to be able to apply these techniques in their real life too. To choose wisely, and cause-effect-consequences.

So I set out to search and scour the website for such books and found them! Now since I'm in Malaysia, the options are quite limited to order online. Amazon doesn't cater shipping to Malaysia for quite a lot of books so I always go to my reliable backup option which is The Book Depository.

After much research and price comparing of the many books titles available, I settled for the "Choose Your Own Adventure Books 1-6: Box Set". I felt it was the most value for money and has the interesting titles which I think will be suitable for my kiddos.

These books just arrived after over 1 month of waiting (I’m in Malaysia). Ordered on 30th July 2019, books were dispatched from UK on 2nd August 2019 and finally arrived on 21st Sept 2019.

Kiddos are so excited and looking forward to bedtime to hear the story!! I'm excited too! Yayyyy!!!

Below are some of the books I got for my kiddos so far... you can see the theme/genre goes from classic comics to educational magazines, and then to illustrated chapter books and comics with more words and in other languages (local comics by Lat)

LEGO® Friends LIVE Show Event

~ Posted on Saturday, July 20, 2019 at 12:03 AM ~

As a busy mum with 5 kiddos between 8 months old to 10-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on my childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)!  

Our family is a big fan of all things LEGO, so when I received an invitation to attend the LEGO® Friends LIVE Show Event with my family, how can I say no?! We quickly arranged for our trip down south (our first family holiday for 2019!!!) so that we can catch the show on time!

Just a quick info on the LEGO Friends for those who are not familiar with them: LEGO Friends revolves around the everyday lives and personalities of 5 girls in Heartlake City. These girls (Mia, Olivia, Stephanie, Emma and Andrea) team up together to help their new friends to make the world a better place. Each girl has their own unique personality of being bold, funny, creative, kind, courageous and caring, reflecting how true friendship with a beautiful heart means.

We reached LEGOLAND Malaysia’s Theme Park on 12th July 2019 and were so excited to be the first group of people to watch the LEGO® Friends LIVE Show about the Magic of Friendship! While waiting for the show to start, our girls spent some time in the Heart Building Activity. Picture below is our 7.5-year old girl with her LEGO heart creation.

We took our seats in the front row near the stage and eagerly waited for the entertaining show. Not long after, all 5 LEGO Friends characters appeared on stage with their eye-catching colourful costumes and the show just got everyone dancing, singing all the way!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the show as we joined along with the rest of the audience in singing and dancing along to some favourite hit songs such as "BFF" and "Friends are Forever". There are many more other songs which is catchy to sing and dance along to as well. Check out the picture below, see how engrossed the audience were? All fully captivated and eagerly taking in the energetic and fun performance!

Since we were seated at the front row, our girls even get to high-fives some of the LEGO Friends characters during the show! I really appreciate this gesture as I feel that the younger children will be super thrilled to get the extra attention and really up-close action with their LEGO characters! The show lasted for about 20-minutes, and yes, we enjoyed every minute of the show!

After the show ended, we made our way out to have our photo opportunity with the real life LEGO Friends characters. Our girls were so thrilled to have their pictures taken with their favourite LEGO Friends characters!

If you are planning to visit LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, do keep a lookout for character appearances throughout the park as well as joining in the fun in the activities provided.

I personally enjoyed the show and embarrassingly admitted that I might be one of the loudest cheering parents during the show LOL! I do think that the LEGO Friends are a positive role-model that young children like ours can look up to and with a world we live in now, every bit of positive traits are welcomed, right?
