Where were we?


what is this boy looking at so intensely?
The Fountain of Wealth

We were at Suntec this evening. We brought ah boy to Toy R Us. Toy R Us is all ready for halloween, costumes are everywhere. We found some rubber head gear and made Declan wore them.
See the “little bimbo”? I think he’ll look pretty if he’s a girl. Ha! There were many more cute ones but this chap just can’t keep anyone of them on long enough for me to snap pics. He keeps saying :”Not nice one”

Our purchase of the day was a pair of arm float, a bubble gun and a water gun. New toys to keep this active little chap occupied.

Accidental Success

Little boy woke up in the morning and annouced :”I want to ‘she she'”

I replied :” Just do it baby, you are wearing diaper.” I proceeded to give him a hug and a tap on his butt. eh?! opps I forgot to help him put on diaper last night. I helped him pull down his pants and let him pee in his potty. While he was peeing, his doubtful mother went into the bedroom and use her hands to feel around the mattress.

Phew! It’s all dry. He slept through the night without his diaper and he didn’t wet himself! SURPRISE! But no, I am not ready to let him try sleeping without his diaper again tonight. I need to be mentally prepared for this first, in case he flood us in the night.

古灵精怪


This little monkey is very into this expression now. Cringing his nose and raising his eyebrows.

He knows that it tickle us whenever he does this, so, everytime I request him to do this expression, he seldom fail me.

The dad brought him swimming this afternoon. It’s been a long time since he last swam and seems like he is more accustom to the water now then before. Previously, he’ll just stay near the edge and shallow part of the pool, now, he’ll wander to the center of the pool. He even pretended to swim by supporting himself on both his hands while he floats and kicked his leg. He even crawled forward in the water using just his two hands while his legs float and he proudly annouced to me :” Mummy I swimming!”

I didn’t join the pair in the pool as it was not “convenient” for me and also because I need to replace a pair of swimming costume. Declan came up, walked to me and asked :” Mummy, you want swimming?” and tried to lead me into the pool. I told him I can’t swim and asked to just enjoy himself and seems like he really did enjoy himself.

After swimming, he still wanted to go “kai kai”, so we brought him to west coast park. He had a great time there too. He totally forgotten about his nap.

We end the trip with a meal at McCafe and MacDonald’s. I should say this boy had a fulfilling Saturday. Where should we go tomorrow?

I hate to say this… but I guess I can’t run away from it. I FAILED my Advance Driving Theory Test. So 丢脸!! To think that I am currently considering whether to sign up for a Psychology course and I actually failed such a simple test!! It seemed simple at least…

Frankly I didn’t prepare well, I only flip through the book 1 day before the test and it was after midnight that I quickly browse through the content. All thanks to my little master who keep insisting I draw pictures of train for him even though I am not much of an artist.

When I first took the test 8 years ago, it was done on paper and one had to wait for the result slip to be posted to your address. Now, it’s different. Its all computerise. The suaku me went into the room and saw rows of terminals. I was assigned a station and I started to look high and low for the keyboard to the terminal. I found none. You know why? Because it is a touch screen terminal… kaozzz…… the moment you finish your 50 questions and hit enter to confirm you want to end the test, the result will flash right in front of you.

Yours truely had the honour of this message :”you have FAILED” flash right in front of my terminal after I hit the enter key. My next try will be on 8th Decemeber, let’s hope I will not receive the same message again…

The Clock Tower

This is the much talk about clock tower at Tsim Sha Tsui. Nothing much to do there except looking at the clock tower and perhaps snapping a few photos.

Victoria Peak

We took a tram up this “must visit” peak as recommended by friends and most of the travel guides. We did a right choice by going up at about 5+p.m and stayed through 9+p.m, visiting Madam Tussaud Musuem in between. As such, we were able to view both the day and night view from the The Peak.

The views were a bit blurred due to the haze. Apparently, haze is very common in Hong Kong due to the industrialisation of Shen Zhen. We can actually see the clouds (or was it haze) looming on top of the tall buildings at night. Kinda cool! Remind me of scenes out of Ghostbuster!

Mdm Tussaud Wax Musuem

Look at all the great hunks and beauties I met there! Can you recognise who is who?

It’s worth visiting. There are actually more figures in there, just that we did not take pics with all of them.

Part 3 to come. This is really tedious…

I must say that, this trip was quite a fulfilling trip. Though I spent alot of time navigating and leading one lazy man around, we did manage to cover quite some places within the short span of 3 days, effectively.

黄大仙 Temple

Probably due to the just pass mid autumn festival, the temple had lots of nice beautiful lanterns. There are even some huge ones floating in their pond.

They got nice stoney views too, even waterfall. See the hardworking me burying myself in my guide book, trying to navigate and organize our trip??

Avenue of Stars

Avenue of Stars is at Tsim Sha Tsui. Here, you will see the hand prints of many Asian stars on the pavement.

Hong Kong Art Museum

Every Wednesday public will get free entry into the Hong Kong Art Museum. We happened to be there on a wednesday, thus we get to enjoy the exhibitions for free! I particular love this
“Hair Dialouge”
exhibition. Can you imagine all the exhibits are made using human hair??

They actually provide materials for members of the public to express their own interpretation of hair. I didn’t try though.

Can you imagine these screens are all made by hair? All the letterings are sculpted using hair. No joke! They are really sooo soooo beautiful.

On top of the Hair Dialouge exhibition, I also caught the education exhibition. The moment u step into this hall, you will see drawing materials provided, encouraging members of the public to draw a potrait of themselves. I was never an artist and was never good at drawing. Nonetheless, I got a little infected and started to doodle on the materials. Kiat didn’t want to do it at first, but I encouraged him to join in. It was really fun! This was one thing I enjoyed most from this trip!

Agnes, you are quite right. Ever since the arrival of the little one, all we ever shop for is for them. These are the stuffs I bought for him on the first day of my trip.

For the rest of trip I added on a cap, another T-shirt which says :”I’m lost in Hong Kong” and a sesame street soft ball for him.

His favorite item among the loot is none other than the toy bus.
