The Sound of Animals

Video taken last night!

Now I really wanna fly home to see my sweetheart :)
So, the early release is indeed beneficial lah!

Eat With Your Family Day

Finally this year the management approves early release for all the employees to go home at 5pm!

But again, how much does that 1 hour actually benefit to us? I probably dread for couple time with the husband more than anything now.

Maybe in the future we can have Spend Time With Your Other Half Day (minus the kids) hee..

So we could go dating, catch a show or 2, enjoy good meals without having to share the portion with the kids. Where we could enjoy food like these in peace!

OK, Chloe might not like this post! :P Gotta go back to work!

The one-and-only Papa Mama Song

Not sure what is she trying to sing, but this is the only 'song' she'll sing... "Papa... Mama... Pa Ma..."

Been Busy!

Hey Yo! Listen up! Mama's blog has been very quiet for the past few days.
I have no choice but to help her take charge in the blog for the time being.

I don't know what she's been up to really. She told me she's busy at work, doing some project related with O2?!?! She's been keeping up late every night at home doing some more work! She has never opened that restaurant game for me to see anymore!

But being the good girl I am, I'm keeping myself entertained with Barney and friends...

I do hope Mama could bring me out to play soon.. I wanna meet my real friends, cos you see, Barney is getting smaller each day. I remember how he used to be very cuddly some time ago..

Anyway.. ciao.. I hope Mama could come back with some real posts soon!

"Home Sweet Home, Papa!"

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

A Surprisingly Great Saturday

It suddenly struck me that we haven't been bringing Chloe out for fun for some time. Our recent weekends were spent at home, either clearing work or catching up the recorded TV series. Chloe deserved some fun time - out of her mini ball tent at home!

So we went to Kallang Leisure Park thinking of letting her dive into the real ball pit of Bambini PlayClub. It's proven that we have not been there for some time... Little did we know the club has changed to Peekaboo! And we were really unlucky to bump into a birthday celebration at the club, which means no more ball pit for Chloe -__-

Feeling bad for her, we compensated by letting her taking multiply car rides in the mall. Letting her roam freely in the mall without forcing her to hold our hands. Indeed, kid is easy to please. See the smile on her face?

It made me realize that she knows how to enjoy herself more!

Later in the evening, we moved on to VivoCity to meet D & gf for dinner. Dinner took place at Japanese Gourmet Town. Delicious okonomiyaki!! Yumz yumz!

The beautiful couple with Chloe!

The 'prosperous' parents with Chloe!

Just before we left the place, Chloe dragged her Papa to see this mini waterplay.

Another guilt showed up in the parents' face - we haven't brought her to the swimming pool for ages!! Now we know where to go next :)

16.05.2009 * 19 mths now!

Chloe turns 19-mth-old now today!

How time flies... (I think I have over-used this sentence recently!) I haven't updated her milestones for a few months.

So these are as much as I could think of, at this hour..

She's pacifier FREE now!
Haha. This must be the proudest achievement of late. Was motivated to wean her off pacifier when she turned 18mths. But only had the motivation last long weekend. Long weekend is a luxury to Full Time Working Parents really... Along with it, she has forgotten the word zhu zhu as well. Of course we wouldn't mind that :)

She's sleeping through the night!
Ok. This is tricky. She started sleeping through the night last month. But each time I praised her good behaviour - for letting me to have better rest, she would start waking up for milk again. Really need to monitor on this, I guess some of the days when she woke up for milk, she didn't have enough share of dinner the day before.

She's babbling a lot more!
Though not clear, we are just happy to see this improvement. Some words I can recall now for instance ah-pel (apple), sobeli/bobeli (strawberry), eik (egg), mao-mao (cat), woh woh (dog), ... and of course di di (little brother).

She's taking instructions and responding better!
Before, she would only do things on her cue. For example, opening the drawer to take hankie(s) prior to milk session. But when I told her that there's one on the sofa/bed already, she ignored and continue to grab a few more hankies -___-
But now, she would listen and put down the hankie when I told her so. Or even better, she would ask me by doing the hand sign, 'where', before opening the drawer. I take that as asking me if there's already hankie on the bed :)

She's showing affection towards the family member!
She loves each and every one of us in the house. And know clearly who is her more favourable one in different time and context. She really warms my heart when she comes and sayang me without being asked, especially when I had my share of morning sickness in the first trimester. Even recently when I had discomfort in the morning, upon dropping her off to inlaws' place. She was seated quietly next to me, hugged my arm and gently patted my tummy. Aww..

She has good memory!
Chloe's 外婆 has went back Indonesia for more than a month. But she can still recall those batik pyjamas or tees which my mum wore during her stay here. She would point if I'm wearing them and keep saying, po po, po po. Even better, the drinking cup which my mum used, she would also point and say, po po, po po. Though cannot call out Ah Zho (great grandma) or Kai Ma (god grandma), Chloe is able to point them out with no mistake from the photos.

She loves our computers more than Barney!
She loves having video chat through skype, msn or gmail. She loves clicking on our mouses. And she would trick us away from our desk just to be able to click on our mouse. Like pretending to ask for help with her toys, or pretending to ask us to play with her in the living room. Then she would run as fast as she could to get hold of the mouse. Funny sight!

She's mischievous!
Since she learns how to take off her own pants, naturally she would love to play taking off when we weren't aware. Argh... this is quite unglam, especially for a girl!

Last, but not least..
She has 11 teeth now!

Going back to bed now.. ciao!

The Drooling Hasn't Stopped...

Had just received 1 CD from the neighbour containing Chloe's photos. There's one neighbour at my in-laws' place who has a DSLR with good focal length. Love these photos, love her gadgets!! hehe.

Anyway, looking back to what my neighbour took for Chloe last year (1 and 2), you can really see that Chloe has grown a lot!!

But, her drooling hasn't stoppped!

New Hair Do

24 Weeks

Went for my gynae check up 2 days back. And was so happy to see our boy growing well :) Everything is well, baby is at his medium size, cheeks look more chubbier now and boy he's kicking a lot!

Was even happier to know I only put on a mere 1.8kg over the past month, on the contrary to my tummy that has expanded a lot! In total, I have gained 7kg. Looking well-controlled hehe

4 more months to go! 加油!

Little girl is still too young to celebrate this day with me.
But the silly things we did together served the best gift already! :)

Sunday Morning at Seletar

Last week hubby found this new route during his cycling regime. It's a new road extension from Yishun dam linking to Punggol. So on Sunday morning, he drove me and Chloe to this place, of what he called an escapade out of Singapore. Huh?

True enough, we crossed the bridge from the dam to this nicely done road; we were in Seletar Island! It's as though we were driving on North South Expressway in Malaysia, but cleaner and fresher. Along the way we saw some workers, a few visitors who sneaked in to do fishing. It's definitely a relaxing experience.

I hope the little entrance to this escapade will remain available until its official open! Anybody know when is it gonna be?

Mac Breakfast on the road

My New Toy

After years of longing, finally I get my own iMac.

Got it on Labour Day last week.

Was it a reward for my hard work??

Or a drive to work even harder??

Either way, I'm loving it!!

This Too Will Pass

The times are bad...
The weather is dramatic...
The flu outbreak is worrying...

Do not let the above bring you down,
Embrace yourself, cherish the moment,
and this too will pass!

Have a great week ahead!
