Photoboook for Bosco

I'm currently doing Bosco First Year photobook. Last week, I was in the midst of updating Bosco photos, using Chloe's template. And when I opened up the file to resume today.. I was stunned by how similar they actually look like. Can you point out for me, which photos belong to Chloe? and which ones have been updated to Bosco??

Big Hearts

Our bedtime closing lines tonight...

Me: "There are Papa, Chloe and Bosco inside Mama's heart." (while hand posing a heart shape, in front of the chest)

Chloe mimicked very quickly, posing the same hand sign: "There are Papa, Mama, Bosco and Nana jiejie in mine!"

Bosco took me by surprise by catching up quickly as well: "Have Mama, Have Papa, JieJie, Na Jie, hmmmm NaiNai (granny!)." what a heartthrob he is, although his hands look more like a gongxi hand sign hahaha

This then sparked the creativity in Chloe and requesting for a retake: "There are Papa, Mama, Bosco, Nana jiejie, YeYe, NaiNai, Big ahbo, Small ahbo, Kelly jiejie, GongGong, PoPo, HuiZi jiejie, Jiu Jiu, Jiu Mu, Alvin didi...." and the list go on.

And when we hugged, we felt our hearts are as one...

Good night and sweet dreams, peeps!

Recent chat with the mummies friends has raised the concern on how much can a K1 student understand / read / write / spell at this age.

This was feedback from Chloe's teacher on her performance for the first 6 months in K1:

I see her ability to recognise and read several words, or her attempt to read a book by herself. But her ability to spell and write those words are minimal.

With the spelling words guideline shared by Emily, Chloe and I started to engage spelling activities yesterday.

It was difficult in the beginning as little girl refused to stay focus and practise her writing. With lots of encouragement and praises, she picked up and moved on confidently. She even initiated another spelling exercise while I was having my breakfast this morning.

This is a good sign. I will spend more time doing more practices with her. Jia you to both of us!!!

Balik Kampung for 2 Weeks

I had the chance to actually spend 2 weeks back at hometown Medan in March. A tad too long and got a little boring by the second week. But looking back at these photos, I don't mind to go back again next year....

Well, maybe 4–5 days trip?? :)

Bringing Chloe and Bosco all by myself.. and lollipop saved the day!
Trip to Berastagi right after reaching Medan
We are cousins!

Kids and their rides...
Andy spent his birthday at Medan for 2 consecutive years!
With so much love by young girls, I think he didn't mind at all!
It's nonstop singing and dancing all day long!
Goodbye kiss from Bosco to Rochelle~~

Say People, Say Yourself!

Just spent a good 30 minutes, educating Chloe on how lousy it is to compare 'who wins and who loses'.

But then again in the adults' world, how many of us really make it to the point of no comparing?

No comparing of power, status, money, education, beauty or whatsoever....

Food for thought really...

Marchin' into March

Had received warm reminders lately that my blog is still way too outdated and s.l.o.w. moving. A little upset on myself, but still feel thankful for the feedbacks. Cos it means they are still loyal readers out there looking forward to my postings :D

Here's a nice gesture from us :) thanks!
Some cute photos from March to share,...
Our royal princesses from the house! Hairbands gotten from Beijing
Dad-in-law's birthday, everybody got really high over the 'rich' cake!
*Yea, eat it baby!*
Get-together with Jerome and Jayden...
...and Ning Xuan too!
Chloe started her first foam art, and I think she is doing good!
However, Bosco had trouble organizing the small pieces of foams!
Check out his hopeless gaze...
Nevermind though, cos he's good with his cars :D

I have posted about my Lasik experience 1 day before my birthday, but never uploaded any photos. So, these are exclusives :)

Waking up to a clear view, felt really wonderful!
A close-up look on what the doc claimed as 'blue black' on my eyes

February was a sweet month, as I only worked 1 week for the whole month!
The kids couldn't be more happier with a stay-at-home-mum!
