My Cousin's Wedding

It was an exciting day! We woke early in the morning to get ready for cousin's wedding. Went to auntie's house for 1/2 hour and we had to rush to the church for the rehearsal. J was very beautiful and S looked soooo handsome!

When the rehearsal was abt to start, Z refused to do it. :( Fortunately they have a backup plan. Thank you, S & J..... Though it was only the 2ND meeting for the kids, they enjoyed each other company. Must be the lollipop that worked (CH bought each of them a lollipop)!

My girl looked sooo beautiful and sweet in that outfit! My boy looked sooo handsome! Too bad that he refused to march in....

In the evening, there were 3 pairs of flower kids. Since Z did not want to do it, I asked my auntie's neighbour son to walk in with my girl. They all did a great job!

Enjoy the video!

Children's Day Celebration

Happy Children's Day!

The school celebrated children's day today with a picnic. Parents and teachers played games with the children, some parents volunteered to bring in goodies (lazy mommy like me did that hehehe...) do face painting, shows and storytelling too!

L enjoyed watching the magic show and the 'freeze' game. While Z enjoyed bubbles, ball games and storytelling. They had a great time especially with lots of goodies for them to munch!

Day Out With Mommy

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We had a great time shopping with Doreen! Finally bought her shoes for my cousin's wedding. She was soooo tired that she fell asleep while on the way to dinner with Daddy & Z.

L took MRT a few times with Porpor but not with me. So today Doreen said we should take MRT! Decided to buy her a child EZ link card. Now L is the only one in the family with the card! I used to have one but I lost it :( Doreen and L were having fun teasing me... Coz mommy doesn't know how to take MRT ( just lazy lah... ;))

It was great that I'm spending time with her again.... I asked her if she would like to do it again and when she grow up, will she do it too, her answer was "YES! I love to go out with mommy!"

Daddy said Z missed us... When Daddy picked him up, he asked where's jiejie & mommy. I felt guilty.... We will spend our weekends 'sticking' together then ;)

An Evening Out With Me

L supposed to have a haircut this evening, but then we realised that they charge $16 just to cut the fringe! So decided to go back to our regular hairdresser another day.

I was glad to be able to spend some times alone with L, looking at things, laughing at little things that we saw etc.... Really missed it.... We had a good time together. I hope when she grow up, she will look forward to going out with me too.

As for Z, he was spending time alone with Daddy.

Mobilekids Tour

We went for the Mobilekids Tour this afternoon. It is a new concept to teach the children abt road safety. Thanks to my friend! L & Z looked forward to it. Z probably was the youngest player as the games are for children from P1 to P6. L was very serious while playing the games.

Do you know what's a kerb drill? U probably will think it is "look left then right". No! It's "look right, left then right again" Think abt it... When you are standing by the side of the road (in S'pore), vehicles are coming from which direction? When we are using the road, we have to listen too. Why? Coz sometimes our views are blocked or there are cars coming from the back. By listening, it will tell us the speed & direction of the vehicles and we will avoid being hit.

I would like to thank the facilitators for taking good care of them! While we were on our way home, L pointed to those people that have committed traffic mistakes. Gagaga... I'm very glad that she learned something from the trip!

New Interest-Z

L & Z current interest is playing game with daddy's handphone, 'Snake'. He is pretty good with it.

It Happened Again!

L came bk with a scratched mark on her arm on Friday (22/09/06) and she told me that it was her Chinese teacher who did this. I was disappointed that no one called, write notes in her book or email me regarding this.

L told me that she was naughty and Ms Z pulled her by the arm and scratched her. Ms Z was trying to stop her from playing with the mattresses after they woke up from their nap. While she was having her afternoon snack, Ms Z applied some cream for her.

When I arrived at the school this morning, Ms Z apologised to me for what happened. I told her that I was unhappy that no one informed me abt what happened and I got to find out from my girl again. This is not right! According to her, she has informed the principal (P) abt it and P asked her to give us a call which she failed to do it. She was very very busy and it slipped her mind. Of coz she forgot! This teacher is overload with 2 classes in her hand! She should have write a note or called us during weekends and not wait till Monday!

I can't put all the blames on the teacher but the school should have done something instead of overloading the teachers. I am extremely disappointed.... Soon.... We'll do something abt it.....

I Love Goofy!

Z loves Goofy.... Most children like Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck but not my boy. So this is for him!

A goofy craft from here. Thanks to Bits & Bites. Made this so he can bring it to school for show & tell.

Granduncle's Place

They were trying to take pic of LZ

We were at my uncle's place.... Times passes very fast. Next Saturday will be my cousin's wedding. Lots of our relatives were there. Met one of my distant cousins that I have not seen for 20 yrs! L & Z had lots of fun playing with my cousins who are kids themselves and my nephew, R. They played computer games and Nintendo DS. It was a nice gathering!

My sis teaching L how to play the game and she's hooked! Z was very engrossed playing the fighting game on the computer that he was oblivious to what was going on in the house.

Thursday, September 21, 2006


In the evening at abt 8pm, we went to the church for rehearsal. L was very excited, asked if she can wear the dress tonight. Told her the dress is for the actual day. Z was excited too coz we were going out.

Samuel & Jac looked so calm during the rehearsal. Wait til the day arrived! Hehehe...

It was very sweet of Jac to plan to let them be in the front row but they have no experience at all so told her that it would be better if they were the second pair (they have 2 pairs of children). The other girl, Cassandra, has been a flower girl for 5 times! The boy, Ryan is older too. Ryan's mommy and me were thinking that Ryan & L will look better together but I was concerned for my boy. At least I know that he will most likely listen to Jiejie.

While waiting to walk down the aisle, L was reminding Z to hold on to her hand and to behave. When I saw this, I can't help smiling. When it was time for them to walk down the aisle, Z insisted that I walk with them. *FAINT* He was alright initially, holding Jieijie's hand and waiting to walk but probably waited too long that he changed his mind. L was upset....

The subsequent practice, he was alright. Know why? I put a small packet of Ribena sweet in his pocket, told him that if he can walk down the aisle, I will open it for him. Gagaga.... It worked! On that day, I'll have to get lots of sweets to 'bribe' him! They need to do it twice, church & dinner. That will probably be the only day that they have unlimited sweets! Hope they will be alright on that day if not will have to pull them out.

Storytelling At Botanical Garden

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Field trip again! We went to Botanical Garden for storytelling & picnic. It was a trip for parents & child. Z & me thoroughly enjoyed the trip! The storyteller was fantastic! Z sat with me throughout the session, listening and saying the rhymes. Wished it was a trip for L too. This is really a good way for parents & child to bond.

When we were bk at the school, Z refused to let me go. So I stayed with him till he finished lunch. He was crying when I left......... :(

Play Gym

L went to the play gym today. She told me she had lots of fun.... She wore socks to school today as the teacher told us that the gym required them to. I was worried that she will forget but she didn't.

When she was in nursery, sometimes she will come home with missing hankies or hairband or hair clips. Now that doesn't happen anymore coz my girl has grown up! :) When she comes home from school, she will take out her hair band/clips and put it back in the box.

This weekend, we decided to do art & craft that is related to teeth. Things that we used:

  • small paper plates
  • construction papers
  • paints
  • glue
  • scissors

L decided to draw baby teeth and Z wanted dino's teeth.

When they have completed, both were 'biting'each other with their new 'teeth'!

L's Creation

Everyday before My babies leave for school, we will put on mosquito patch for them. When they come home, they will stick it in the toilet.

I don't know how she come out with this idea, to use it for artwork :) She showed it to me after she has completed it. She used those leftover papers from the teacher's day card to make this. So cute hor?

My New Cup

Have been looking for a cup with cover, finally found one when I went shopping with him the other day. He likes using it!

Z did not go to school since tuesday till now..... When I asked him if he wants to school, he said no. Though he has been very 'sticky'....... Mommy this & mommy that, I enjoyed these few days being with him.

It's Just A Toy

While showering for L, Daddy had this 'cute' conversation with her.

L : Daddy, I want to shower for my doll
Daddy : No, you can't shower for your doll because it's too cold
L : Daddy, this is not real, it's just a toy!
Daddy : Then it's not necessary to shower for your doll!
L : Hahaha.....

She is sooo funny! This reminds me of a conversation she had with our family doctor more than a yr ago. She brought a toy to the clinic to show Dr S. Same thing happen....

She said:" Dr, you see my toy" ( she moved the plane like it was flying)
Dr S said:" Wow! Your plane can fly!"
L : Dr, this is just a toy!

Day Out With Me

Z did not go to school today and we went to orchard rd to meet my friend. I felt bad that I had to bring him out with me when he has not fully recovered but I will be busy next week and I may not have time to look for the clothes. My cousin's wedding is near and they are going to be the flower girl & page boy. Before we left the house, I told him to choose a few cars to bring along. Then he asked:"What abt Jiejie?" Very sweet of him to think of L when we were going out.

After shopping for awhile, we had late lunch at one of the cafe and Z can't resist the temptation to have a choc cake. Then we took MRT, it was Z 2nd time taking the ride and he was very excited (though it was only 1 station)!

I'm glad that he was with me today. It has been quite a while since I brought him out alone. I used to do that very often with L. My friend said that he was well behaved, waiting for us while we were busied looking at the clothes in the shops and playing on his own while we were having tea. I told her that's because Jiejie was not with him to commit 'crime' together. Gagaga...

Picture For Z

L asked me this morning,"mommy can I make a card for Didi?"
Me : Of course, sweetie!
L : mommy, do u remember I made a card for him when he was sick?
Me : Sure I remembered! Let me show u.... (it was clipped at the window)
L : Can I draw for him?
Me : U can draw or make a card for him. I'm sure didi will like it.
L : OK! I will do it this afternoon in school

Her chinese teacher told me (when I pick her up) that L went to ask Ms S how to spell her brother's name (L knew that she was Z's teacher) .

pic that she did this afternoon.... Funny hor? She wrote didi's name and 'I love mummy'. When I asked her, she can't explained it :) Hmmmm.... She think of me too much liao... Hehehe... My sweet little girl, thank you for drawing this pic to cheer Z up!

This was the card she did for Z some time ago....

Z was running a fever so brought him to the doc again this evening. Doctor S said that is because he didn't take his antibiotic. He apologised for giving us that antibiotic but I don't blamed him. I was given a choice of antibiotics, 1 that taste ok but may take longer to recover or the other that taste horrible but most effective, we chose the latter. I was worried if that is pneumonia, Doctor said it is upper respiratory infection and not that.

Z vomited the medicine each time he took it. It hurt to see that..... Whenever it was time to feed him, he will point to the white bottle and said,"I don't want that!" We brought the medicine along to change. When Z saw the Doctor S, he gave it to him and told him that he doesn't like it.

His fever has subsided in the night..... Let hope his temperature will not go up again tomorrow, otherwise he will have to go for a blood test. My poor boy, I hope u will recover soon. It hurt to see u taking so many kinds of medicine. It took us a long time to coax him to take the new antibiotic coz it was a white bottle again. :(

Gathering At Uncle's Place

In the evening, we went to visit Ah Mah. Almost everyone was there! There was lots of yummy food prepared by uncles & aunties except me ;). With 2 young children, An Mah would normally tell us no need to cook anything. It was very sweet of her.

L & Z had lots of fun playing with all the gorgors & jiejies though they are much older. I grew up in a small family and I wished I had so many cousin to play with. I felt very blessed, to have such a big family that love us sooo much especially my kids. Everytime we have a gathering, we (esp my kids) look forward to it!

At 8+, it was time for us to go home coz Z needed to take his medicine.


Daddy bought Z to the doctor this morning and Doctor said it was a 'regular' cough but he needs to take antibiotics. Phew! I know I shouldn't sound glad when he need to take antibiotic but I was more concern what if he has pheumonia.

Doctor said that the antibiotics taste horrible and most kids don't like it but it is most effective. If he doesn't want to take it, he will change for it, 1 for 1. How right he was! Z puke as soon as he take it and in the evening, we decided to 'force' and 'bribe' him. well, it didn't work so we will have to change to the other medicine though it will take longer time to recover.

He is still active, playing with Jiejie, running around and has a good appetite.

Oh no! Not Again!

We received email from school that one of Z's classmates have pneumonia, caused by mycoplasmic bacteria. It is contagious and Z is having cough again! Glad that he is not having fever and we will have to send him to the doctor again tomorrow.

Let's hope it is not pnuemonia....

She may be naughty at times but we still love her very much.

Car Magazines

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Z very much like daddy, crazy over cars! When he saw daddy's car magazines, he sat quietly for a long time flipping thru them. He pointed at the cars and asked me "What this?". I told him the names and he will repeat after me. L joined in too!


Photobucket - Video and Image HostingDaddy had a ear infection and he had a tiny gauze in his ear. When L & Z saw it, they said "Eeeeeeee...." and ran away. But when they knew that daddy were having an ear infection, they sayang him.

Hope daddy will recover soon.

I Can Take Off My Pajamas!

This morning, Z removed his pajamas on his own (usually I have to help him with his top)! L was very happy for her didi, excitedly told us abt it.

I Did It!

This morning Z removed his pajamas on his own (usually we have to help him to remove the top)! He said: "I DID it!" Then he followed Jiejie to the toilet to brush his teeth without us prompting. Good job!

Sometimes he still likes to have gel for his hair, esp when he sees me putting hair clips for his Jiejie.

Windmill Project

L has been asking me when are we going to do the windmill so decided to do it today. Got this idea from the Disney programme, Out Of The Box. Thought that I could remembered all the steps but I forgot the most important part, which was how to stick the straw to the back. Haiz... Sign of old age.

We used:

  • construction papers (square shape)
  • scissors
  • paper fasteners
  • beads
  • straws

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingL drew some pics and put stickers on the construction paper. Z did stamping and put stickers on his.

- Fold the paper in triangle shape and cut according to the line (do not cut to the end, leave a gap).

- Then take alternate corners and punch holes at the tip (don forget to punch hole in the centre of the paper & make sure that the hole are big enough for the fastener to go ard).

-Put fastener and 1 bead (for the weight). I cut the tip of the straw into half so that I can stick it on the bead.

We were happy with the results. They were running ard with it and guess what? The windmills can turn leh!

I want More Chilli!

This evening we had dinner with our friends again. Shirley ordered a seafood pasta with chilli and it was yummy! Z decided that he wants to try it too. We told him there was chilli but he insisted. His reaction after the first spoonful was "Arrggh! Chilli!" LOL. He then continued with it! Such a pity that I didn't record it on video.

Think he is going to be like me.... I love spicy food, the hotter the better!

After getting L & Z into the car, we were chatting happily outside the car with our friends when L was banging on the car window. When we asked her why, she said that she was shouting for us and we didn't respond. She wanted to tell us that Z needed to use the toilet. Aiyo..... We were terrible! Jiejie very sweet, always take care of his bro or she didn't want him to dirty the car? Gagaga........

Zingo For You?

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingRecently we love playing Zingo. Though it recommended age to play was from 4yrs old, Z loves the game. L recognised the words and even tried spelling it! Sometimes daddy will join in the fun if he's free. Of coz mommy always lost the game.

Play Date

Louisa invited us to her house today for a play date.... I told L abt it only in the morning. If I've told her earlier, she would be bugging me throughout the week. :)

When we arrived, Rachel gave us a very warm welcome. The girls started chatting away while my boy started playing the toys. Louisa was a GREAT host, she planned lots of things for our kids to do and cooked yummy prawn noodles for lunch. Rachel & L even planned a performance for us! While they were performing, we were busied with our camera. Z was trying to figure out what is these 2 jiejie trying to sing. Gagaga....

When it was time to go home, L & Z reminded me to bring home those paintings that they did. They were sooo tired that as soon as we reached home, both fell asleep.
