Zoo Trip

Safia & me have arranged to go to the zoo with our children. Told L & Z abt it and Z woke up at 5+ this morning! First thing he said was: "Mama, zoo?" LOL... Finally he went bk to sleep at 6+.

Our children, including Laetitia were excited abt the trip! When we arrived, we headed toward the africa animals (if I'm not wrong) coz L & Z wanted to see those animals that were in Madagascar (managed to see some of them). As we moved along we saw other animals too before we reached the children's world.

L 1st time taking pics, she was very excited and had to remind her that she can only take 12 pics.... Will post it here once I find the time to develope it.

They enjoyed most at the waterplay area and playground!

Having a fun time with jiejie at the swing........

We waited for quite awhile before we finally get a group pic!

Party & Haircut

We were playing finger games befor we left for the party....

Daisy's son, Glendon's bday today.... Went to the party at 1+pm. Both fell asleep on the way, and was a little grouchy when arrived. But both were recharged after having their meal, running around in the function room. L was so sweet... Didi finished his drink and wanted more, so she poured some of hers for him.
After the party, went for shopping & haircut.... Bought L a pair of sandels, Z, swimming suit, and some titbits. Both were looking forward to the haircut coz they give out candies, stickers & balloons! It was their 1st time having their haircut at Junior League (used to be another salon but took over by JL last month). So sua ku! Never know they have a TV screen in front of the chair! Someone was commenting that both my babies were so well behaved at the salon. Of coz lah... with all the goodies! :D

Parent - Teacher Session ~ L

It's the time of the year for the PTS.... One of the things I like abt the school is that we don't have to wait till the session then we get feedback of our children's progress. Whenever I fetch my children, I can always ask the teachers. I think this session should be more for daddies. Hehehe.... Most of the times, L will tell me what's happening in school, what has she done, who she hang out with, etc...

This afternnoon we went to the school for the parent teacher session. None of our family members were free to look after my babies, so had to bring them along.

Our appt were at 1300hr but we were late ( what's new?). Waited for awhile coz teachers were having session with other parents. 15mins later, L's chinese teacher (Ms Zhou) came.... From her teacher's report, we were glad that she has began to try to converse with her teacher in mandarin and she has shown great improvement! Ms Zhou told us that she needs more practice for her writing skill though. OK... Mommy will spend more time with her on that.

Then we have the discussion with her main teacher, Ms B and the principal, Ms L. Ms B said her academic and social skills are good and she is very vocal. We were told that she is very inquisitive which we both agreed. Sometimes she asked too many questions till we have no answer and we don't intend to stop her from asking. Ms B said that is gd for her especially in future when she attend lectures. That also the reason she is not stopping her too. She said that nowadays when students attend lectures, they don't ask/ too shy to ask/ don't dare to speak up. I've been telling L that if she don't understand or don't know, she must always ask. Hmmm... So effective meh?

Overall, BS and me are very happy with her progress in school.

Mama, I want To Shh Shh - Z

Wow... I'm sooo happy! This evening while I was removing his training pants (so that I can shower for him), He told me that he wants to shh shh. It was unsuccessful last month when the school teachers & me tried to potty train him. He will only tell us after he has done it, so we decided to stop for few weeks. For me, I don't like to rush to potty train him coz I know sooner or later he will be able to do it.

I have been telling him to sit on the toilet seat before I shower him to encourage him to pass urine. Finally, He did it! Although he peed all over, it was a great progress.

Heart Warming Moments...

Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by

I saw this scene in the evening while preparing their school bags... Isn't it heartwarming? Both of them are really close to each other. Normally they will sit next to each other, but today, Z wanted to sit infront of jie jie & lean against her. Jie Jie was hugging him and he was holding her hand. L was quite uncomfortable (Z's hair was tickling her), so I told Z to move a little. But L said it's ok, she wanted her bro to feel comfortable.

I rushed to take my camera hp to snap these pics. How can I missed taking such great shots?

Gun, Show Tell....

Every monday, Z will have his show & tell ( an apportunity for th children to speak up in class) in school and I will always ask him what would he like to bring along. Most of the time L or me will have to suggest something. While I was packing his school bag this evening, I was telling him that I'm thinking what to pack for his show & tell. He came running to me with his toy gun and excitedly said: "Mama. gun show tell!" LOL... Finally! I don't have to crack my brain to decide for him liao....

Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all Mommies a wonderful day!

We stayed at home today coz daddy needs to go bk to office :( .... Before he went bk to office, I went to do some shopping.

In the afternoon, we baked cookies... Again? Yes! they simply love it!

Happy Birthday To Gong Gong

In the evening, we celebrated Gong Gong's bday ( 69 yrs old) at a restaurant. We celebrated mother's day too but Por Por can't make it for the dinner coz she got to work and she can't get the off day :( Dinner was gd and both my babies had a bowl of rice each! When we asked for the cake that my sis bought, we realised that they have a mother's cake for us too. We then asked Gong Gong to bring it bk home for Por Por.

Yummy Shortbread Cookies

I promised L that we will do baking couples of weeks ago. Well, mommy has to keep her promise right? They were very excited though it was not their 1st baking session. They like to play with the dough, cut the shapes, sift flour etc.... L loves to help me in the kitchen. Z? He like the wash rice for me and play with the tap! Gagaga....

I used recipe from this
Jane Bull - Baking Book . I like it coz it has pics in it, easy for kids. We rolled it like a ball then flatten it and put candies & chocs on it. While we were doing it, both of them were munching the chocs!

They had the cookies when they woke up from nap. It was yummy! L wanted to bring some to school on monday but we left with 2 pcs only. Told her we will make it again tomorrow.

Fundraising Day!

This morning after getting my babies ready for school, I was at the computer again... Checking thru the lists, hoping that I did not missed out anything. When I arrived at the school, I saw the K2 children were loading the goodies onto the bus, all if them were eager to help.

We received warm welcome from the church members when we arrived. All the children were very excited that they will be performing for the old folks. I thought L & some of her friends might have stage fright but I was wrong! From the videos, you can tell that L enjoyed it!

As I can't decide which video to publish, here are all the videos! I'm a kiasu mommy,holding hp on my left hand & video cam on my right!!

They did a medley of abt 8 songs (english & chinese) for the old folks. They even have bday celebration for guests that is born in the month of May! Katherine and 2 children(born in the month of May) went up to make their bday wishes and did cake cutting with them.

After the performance, we went to the hall... After the old folks finished their lunch, the children give out the goodies. They make rounds to make sure that everyone has a goodie bag. It was very sweet of the church members to prepare lunch for us & they gave the kids goodie bags (sweets, chocs etc!) too!

From the pastor, we found out that most of the old folks live in 1 room HDB flats and some of them have not received presents for years/they are single/they have no family. The church organises thursday lunch every week for them. They will have lunch, or pick up 2nd hand clothes or sometimes they have people visiting to give out goodies to them. I am very glad that L & me were involved in this project. We should appreciate what we have and not take things for granted.

By the time we reached school, it was already 1+pm. I rushed home to buy last mins items & brought the puddings to school. Talking abt the pudding, I would like to thank my dear colleague, Shima for sponsoring it.

We (Parent volunteers) starting moving the tables & chairs out when we arrived, then we heard the thunder! Oh no... We have no choice but to moved everything under the shelter. While waiting for the rain to stop, we get the children to cut the peppers, tomatoes and sausages. See the pics? They look so serious.... Meanwhile, the rest of the children were in the music room. Why? Coz we took all the tables! Hehehe... My precious boy was in the room too. I brought some VCDs for them to watch, no tables & chairs so no schoolwork! Hmmm... I bet the children must be very happy right? Gagaga...

At 4+pm, the rain stopped! Hurray! We rushed to set up the place.... Guests started coming in at 5pm.... Initially, the kids were doing ok, till they see the cold drinks! We have to encourage them to continue serving... After 1/2 hr or more, they started playing at the playground or eating, that includes my girl. Z joined in too.... Well, who was serving the guests then? Parent volunteers lor.... :) They deserved a break... It has been a long day for them.

Someone suggested that we should sell the balloons. That was a gd idea! Think we raised alot of $$ from it! Children ( my kids too!) crowd around Mindy (Parent volunteer) & me telling us what colours they want. Children's drawing were sold out! And most of the food too! Look at the pic.... Is that how I look like? Gagaga.....

Gd news is that we raised more than $1000 ( more than I expected)! Yippee Hurray! It was a success! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parent volunteers, children and the school for their help, and to all parents, family members & friends for their donations ( if they ever read my blog :>).

Goodie Bags For Elderly

I went to school this afternoon to pack the goodie bags. Most of the children (K1 & K2) were not in school as they have swimming lesson, including my L. Those that were in school help me and 2 teachers packed the bags. They enjoyed doing it! When the rest of the children came back, they were very curious to find out what were we doing.

We bought $600 worth of items for 100 elderlys, hope we will be able to raise this amount or more. Ms Liane's(teacher) hubby, Alpesh managed to get free kiwis for them too! I'm so happy that we were able to get 10 items for each elderly.

L & Z were playing at the playground while waiting for daddy to pick us up

This Is My Mommy

This morning, I went to L's school to introduce myself and to tell the children(K1 & K2) what are we going to do this thursday. Most of them know who I am since I've taught some of the K1 children how to make baked beans toast. Hehehe... Truth is, whenever any adult step into the school, you will hear them shouting,"xxx, your mommy/daddy is here!"

L was so excited abt it! She kept telling her schoolmates that I am her mommy! She stood next to me thru out and whenever someone tried to touch my bag, she stopped them. I think she is very proud of me and it seems like I had a bodyguard! Gagaga...

All the children were very excited abt this event and I'm looking forward to it. Hope everything will turn out well.

Flower for mommy/Beach trip

L was so sweet this morning... She gave me a flower( she told me she made it with her teacher's help) and told me it's for Mother's Day! She said teacher told her to give it to me on sunday. My princess, probably think that today is Mother's Day. Gagaga... Having my 2 precious with me, everyday will be Mother's Day.

Yes we were at the beach again.... I've promised them that we will go the beach this weekends.

In the video, you will see that L was pretending to be a digger.... Z enjoyed scooping sands into the bucket.

L told me that she was disappointed that mommy did not prepared dinner for this trip. Sorry... I was busy in the afternoon for the event again. Hopefully the weather wil be nice next weekends then we may go the beach again. Both love having their dinner at the beach. BS & me like that too....

L told me that she has not been to the zoo & bird park for a long time..... That's true, ever since our membership card expired this yr. Time to ask daddy should we apply for it again.

Mommy's Fault

We were supposed to catch the movie, The Wild this afternoon..... L was very excited coz it's going to be her 1st movie trip! But I needed to get the goodies for the elderly.... (Remember? I was the coordinator for this event). I was told yesterday that the church advised us to get goodies for them instead of giving hong bao. Hence the last mins shopping. I went out when my babies just woke up from their nap. Z was crying and pulling me when I went out. Wanted to go out earlier, but my gf, Grace can make it only at 4pm.

By the time I'm done with the shopping, it was already 6pm. We rushed down to great world city, hoping to catch the 1940hr show. When we get there, we only have 40mins to have dinner( with the crowd at the mall, no way we can finish our dinner on time). So we decided to cancel it. L was very disappointed.... I'm sorry, Daddy & Babies. Told her we will try to watch the movie next week.

I Love Drawing - L

"Mommy! Can I have more papers pls?" That's what L always ask from me whenever we are doing nothing at home. She enjoys it.... She probably follows her daddy. BS draws very well, I remembered once when I did a cooking session for L's class, he draws out the steps in details.

I asked her if she would like to join an art class but she prefers to dance. Have been looking around for jazz ballet classes but timing doesn't fit with my schedule.

Don't you think her cat look sooo cute?

She told me she wants a very big house (or apartment?)! She explained to me who/what is in each level. She loves swimming, therefore there's a pool next to our house. She has never taken a ride in a hotair balloon so she drew it to "hint" to me.

I'm really happy that whenever she draws a pic, she always explains to me what is in the pic and why she draws it.
