My kids are so happy when I tell them we are going to Kidzania again!. They can play whole day there exploring so many activities and get their real-life occupations hands-on in a fun learning environment. Mummy is excited as well looking at them growing and learning new experience. My kids tend to be more brave to try out different job, trying out uniforms and learning to communicate. This place is awesome with so many job to explore that something they can't learn in school.
First stop is to become fire fighter. You need to queue for the no according to timing. They are lucky enough to be the early batch around 11am. After the short briefing session, they are ready to jump into the fire engine truck. Looking cool on their outfit!


Having fun and they learn to be as a team to fight the fire

Next stop heading to the Z*Mart. Kids can choose to become worker or customer. There are indications on each station on their age requirement to perform such establishment, how much kidZos need to be come a customer and kidZos earned as workers.
The Z*Mart was their favourite spot as the kids enjoy being a customer browsing through the list of food to purchase and being the cashier scanning the item and make sure the receipt is out for customer.
We have to please them as they request to explore upper floor. Going up and down looking for their favourite job to try. Going into Spritzer Bottling Plant where they become the delivery girls. Picking up parcel / sending the spritzer to 3 destination. The friendly staff will explain to the kids what they should say when reaching the desired destination and what they need to do. Only kids are allowed to go inside in each establishment. In this way, my kids learn to communicate with strangers and gain their confidence level.

Seems they are in the good mood, they want to try the police station. Dressing up with the police attire, they are trained and follow the instructions given on what to do.

Next, trying out delivery of parcel at KZ Express Courier.

Canon Imaging Studio - This is the best among all. My kids get to hold on the real camera! Quite heavy though. But they enjoy it so much.


Having fun as delivery girls sending cash to 3 different place
Playing games while learning 


KZ Post News Edition - Spending their time writing news. My eldest girl get the chance to do her own reporting.

Tourism Malaysia Tourist Information Centre - They get to create their own profile pic in this lovely printout.
I am glad they enjoy so much at Kidzania with many fun activities. Educational and gain lots of new knowledge too.  Mummy is proud seeing them finally willing to put on the uniform and trying out different hands on job. Hope we can try other exciting and challenging establishments in our next visit.

Ben 10 Needs Your Help to Save the World!

Wednesday, February 07, 2018 0 Comments A+ a-


In the exciting build-up to the launch of brand-new episodes, Cartoon Network is bringing the world of Ben 10 to life across TV, online, and social media.

We all know that 10-year-old Ben Tennyson turned from zero to hero when he chanced upon a paranormal wristwatch called the Omnitrix that crashed to earth in a meteorite.

Well, in Ben’s latest battle, he goes head-to-head with his archnemesis – Vilgax, the Conqueror of Worlds. Vilgax is an intergalactic alien warlord that seeks to obtain the Omnitrix for himself. He is a master strategist who is known to trick his enemy when physical force isn't enough.

On Saturday, February 10, Vilgax will unceremoniously announce his plans to the world by interrupting Cartoon Network’s Facebook live, proclaiming:

“I AM VILGAX, CONQUEROR OF WORLDS. I HAVE UNDERESTIMATED THE POWER OF THE OMNITRIX! BEN TENNYSON IS A MERE CHILD AND YET IT GIVES HIM THE POWER TO CHALLENGE ME? I THINK I’LL TAKE IT FROM HIM!” 

In a flash, he is gone but Vilgax’s power lingers on with his evil influence impacting multiple Cartoon Network platforms.
Usually, Ben only needs his Omnitrix to defeat anyone, but it has begun to malfunction causing an unprecedented transformational loop between all 10 aliens. It is now up to everyone to come together and help him save the world.

From Sunday, February 11 to Wednesday, February 21, Ben will be working to power up all 10 of his aliens to be stronger, faster and better than ever. Daily challenges will be released on the Cartoon Network Asia Facebook page, encouraging fans to help Ben unlock his new Omni-enhanced forms.

Those who are interested in helping Ben can like the Cartoon Network Asia Facebook page for all the latest updates. Fans will also learn about the new Omni-enhanced aliens, their powers, and vote for their favorite new aliens and catch them in a showdown against Vilgax on Wednesday, February 21.

In line with this, the Cartoon Network website will also feature 10 different daily activities and quizzes about Vilgax, Ben, and his new alien forms.

Look forward to joining Ben in this epic battle on Sunday, February 11 and stay tuned for new episodes airing weekly at 10am on Cartoon Network (Astro Ch. 616) from Saturday, February 24 onwards.

THYMOS® Anti HFMD/FLU Sprays - Good Product

Friday, February 02, 2018 3 Comments A+ a-

The most worried moment is when our child fall sick and they not able to attend school. The cranky moment, not willing to take the medicine and sleepless night for both kiddos and parents.

Unforgettable experience when my three kids suffer from Hand Foot Mouth Disease. I have no idea where they get infected by it. Zero knowledge about this disease. It started with fever then few red spot on my eldest girl hand. Not painful but the spots have blister. The next two days spread to my second girl with rashes on the buttock area. Finally my third son also have it with more serious condition where he can't eat well because many ulcer in his mouth. More painful when I see almost every part of his body have rashes with blister especially on the leg area. He can't sleep well, heartbroken me crying inside hoping he will recover faster. There is no medicine to cure. Just ensure them have enough liquid and rest.

Thus, whenever I bring them for outing, I will ensure they will wash their hand and feet each time they come home. A warm bath will be better still. I also bring along a hand sanitize and hope it will at least kill the bacteria whenever they touch thing outside. The safety measure that I always remind myself because I am really frightened about this disease.


I came across this product THYMOS® Anti HFMD/FLU Spray which is a high-powered disinfectant specifically designed to help mothers provide an all-round total defence for their little one by eliminating 99.99% Virus infectious diseases.

How to use it :-

I spray it on my girl school uniform. During morning time, I spray evenly on the uniform to prevent from disease. It is very useful and handy to use. The tube have approximately 170 sprays and  have long lasting effects.
Kids can have their wonderful playtime while safely protected by THYMOS® Anti HFMD/FLU Sprays. Very useful to spray on the soft toys, playroom, and all other toys.
