Q : What do you think he wants?
A: He dragged his dad to the fridge and wanted him to open it. So dad obliged thinking that he wanted some fruits as usual. However, this time he didn’t reach out for the fruits, he just stood there and stare blankly into the fridge. The dad called for me and asked me to deduce what I thought he wanted, I took a look at him, saw his satisfied look and asked :” baby, you want cold cold is it?” He nodded. -_-” He open the fridge not for food… but because he wanted air con….. ji la kat…

Still Down

The poor little chap is still puking on and off and running slight temperature averaging about 37.3 degrees. I gave the PD a call yesterday and he said that we need not bring him back since he is generally still active. That’s something which I am quite glad about. At least he’s still moving around, though not as much as his usual self. He’s been sleeping alot though. We were wondering whether he ate something wrong as 1 day before he was ill, we brought him for a jap buffet. We didn’t feed him sashimi lah, he just ate cooked stuffs and of course plenty of desserts… look at how this boy was enjoying his food just a day before he was down.

Our Christmas Day

Christmas Day we set out early and left to our very own nest at Jurong West. It’s been 1 year plus since we last stayed up there. Kiat invited his colleagues over for pot luck and we wanted to be there early to buy our share of contribution and also to clean up the place a little. We had “unexpected additions” that day… -Keith and Evelyn. sigh….. let’s not talk about it… Anyway, they came in “handy” as they helped us carried our purchases back.

After getting drinks, honey baked ham and fruits, we chanced upon a free ice cream offer while searching for ribs! In the end we didn’t manage to get the ribs, instead each one of us get a free cup of yummy ice cream which normally cost $2.80 each. What a steal!

After enjoying our ice cream we headed home. It was a long and tiring journey… we don’t drive… so we had to drag all our groceries and a toddler home with the help of 2 kids…

AFter we recuperated from the “tough journey”, our christmas mood came. Look at us playing santa!

The Dad is on LEAVE

The dad is on leave from 23rd to 28th Dec! Yahoooooooooooooooo!!! That means we can cramp plenty and plenty of activities into this period of time! Let’s see what we have done so far :

23rd Dec 2005, Friday

All of us woke up at about 9am. Our first destination was to the West Coast Branch of Modern Montessori International (MMI) School. I’ve been contemplating whether to send Declan to the MMI’s playgroup. The difference between the full day and half day fees is just $3 due to the diff in subsidy. Ain’t it absurd???? I’ve never thought of sending him in there full day as I prefer him to grow up in a home environment. Having said that, I also wanted him to have some different activities other than cooping up at home and watching Barney VCDs. So, probably I will look at sending him in on alternate days on a half day basis. He was very curious at the environment and he keeps meddling with the Montessori toys when we were there. Anyway, I’ll decide on that later, most likely I will send him in after CNY. No pictures were taken as I am not sure whether it was allowed.

After MMI, we brought Declan together with us to KBox for KLunch. Heheheheh. After watching us using the microphone for a while, he figured out that he’ll he able to amplify his voice if he speaks into the rounded thingy. He picked up the idle microphone and said “ba………” into it in a mono tone. Mostly likely he is trying to sing hahaha… We fed him muffin and vitasoy while he swayed a little to some music and watch the video intently.

However, he spent most of his time destructing KBox’s property though :p After we are done, the muffin crumbs were everywhere, it left the seats oily and sticky. His vitasoy was spilled all over the table, the stand holding the flyers and menu was chipped at one corner as he threw it on the floor, coasters were everywhere :p I bet we had since been black listed.

After singing karaoke, we headed home for a nap before we headed to EXPO for a great magic play “Magic of Love at Christmas” starring the renown local father and daughter magician duo Lawrence & Priscilla.

A business associate invited us to the play. Having not look at the invitation card properly, I thought it will be another Christianity theme play. Upon arriving, when I saw the stand up bill board with Lawrence and Priscilla’s face then I realize that it will be something different. It was really a great show, not the usual magic shows which we saw on TV. Magic was incorporated into a play with a very heartwarming story, it’s a pity that we had to leave during the 15 mins break as we were running late….. Though the show was good, Declan fell asleep less than half an hour into the show… The consoling fact was that we watched the play for FREEEEE. No photos taken either as it was not allowed.

24 Dec 2005 Sat

We started our day with breakfast at Café cartel. This time we brought mum in law along. This is actually our Christmas meal. Usually folks will have Christmas dinner, this year we decided to make it a little different by having “Christmas Breakfast”. The food was cheap and good! All breakfast set comes with free flow of bread, coffee or tea and a muffin! Yummy Yummy!

After breakfast we went shopping. I had to do some last minute x’mas shopping and we all got home at about 3+pm. We nap again, afterwhich I woke up to wrap the presents, laze around a little, had dinner and off we went to 3rd uncle’s place for a BBQ session. Kiat and myself didn’t eat much but our little monster ate plenty! BBQ chicken, maize, fruits and cheese biscuits too!

He met a little friend at the BBQ. They are born just 2 months apart. Being the “kor kor” he kept patting the “di di’s” head when he walked past him. So funny hahaha. Dec also tried holding his hands and they even attempted shaking hands. Just like what adults do when they met. Dec also went digging for cheese biscuits and shared with Shi Jie (the little friend’s name). It’s a chore getting Declan to sit still so that I can get a pic of the 2 of them together. Shi Jie is the tamer of the 2. He can sit quietly for long period of time, unlike my little bulldozer.

Wow! We actually did so much within 2 days! Wonderful! but poor daddy and baby are really tired.
