Year End Wish List

These are the items in my 2006 year end wish list.

Sony Ericsson W850i

Kiat had offered to take this item off my wish list for me as a christmas pressie. I’m really looking forward to laying my hands on this!

Sony DSC-T10

Kiat asked me to choose which item for him to help me strike off the list. I volunteered to strike this item off myself as it’s more costly then the handphone. There is a PC show next week, I’m hoping I’ll be able to get a good deal then. I’m still comtemplating whether to get a white or a pink one. I’ve been wanting to get a new digi camera for the longest time. The one I am using right now is a real dinosaur, only 3 megapixel and it’s reaction is really damn slow!!! arghhhhhhhhhh!!! In fact I’m so desperate for a new camera that I don’t mind if there is a good deal for another model or another brand.

Addidas Sports Jacket

I can’t find a pic of the exact jacket that I wanted.. this was one of the closet. The one in my mind was a black one with gold letterings, without a hood.

I am a simple lady, that explains why there are currently only 3 items on my wish list. If God forbid me to get all and will only allow me to choose 1 out of the list, then it’ll be the camera. I need it to capture the best moments of my boy. I’m keeping my fingers cross!!! Good deal!! please!! give me a good deal for my camera!!!

2006 Year End Concert

We just got back from Declan’s school Year end concert. Today was the very first time, Declan went on stage. Pardon me, but when the teacher told me that he is going to perform, I was actually quite doubtful. Not that I doubt the ability of my little boy, but they are still so young, the youngest of the whole lot. I really wonder, how the teachers can keep them under control.

Nevertheless, I was quite excited and was looking forward to see him perform. It didn’t go too well right from the beginning. Upon arrival at NUS Alumni Hall, where the concert was, he kept asking me to bring him home. The teacher got to tear him away from me. He was brawling, the teacher assured me that he’ll be calm once I’m out of sight. So, I left him with the teacher and got myself seated. The dad was there too of course.

The PG 1 was the first to kick off the performance and my oh my they were just soooo cute! Apologies, my photos are a bit dark. Pardon my lousy camera. A new camera is on my hit list. I love the little mice headgear they wore. Can you spot Declan? He is the 2nd mouse. My poor little boy was moody the whole time. They were entertaining, the moment they came on stage, all the parents were so tickled by them that before they even start their dance, everyone already started laughing.

My poor little mouse actually froze on stage upon seeing the crowd. He looked stunned. When the music started, the first little mouse beside him started crying, he remained as cool simply because he froze, like what I just mentioned. He didn’t move a finger, he simply stood there cool like a cucumber, resembling the statue of Sir Stamford Raffles along Singapore River. Me like the rest was laughing away at the comical scene. Out of the 5 little mice, only 3 of them was performing as planned.

You can see from the various photos that from the beginning till the end, my boy maintained the same pose. He’s a perfect candidate if you need a model for painting!

See?? He still didn’t move an inch even when the others had sped off.
hahahah nonetheless, in our eyes, our little boy still did great. At least he didn’t cry and he got the guts to go up stage. A video of them rehearsing was shown and during the rehearsals he did well. He really dance to the beat and did all the actions right. I believe he froze upon seeing that many audiences which was not simulated during the rehearsals.

This was him when he “thawed”.

The proud mama mouse.

In case you guys thought your eyes are playing trick on you, they didn’t. His teacher did apply make up for him. I really wonder why boy still need to put on make up. Anyway he looks quite good with the make up, looks “very sweet”.

Happy again!! and wet kisses from him to us!

You guys know why both of them are laughing so heartily? The big one was grossed by the fact that the little one gave him a lick on the face instead of a kiss and the small one was giggling at his own “victory”

As for me, I was trying real hard not to siam his wet sloppy kiss. Let’s hope that he will do better in year 2007.

No Whining

I always thought it’s a girl’s priviledge to whine and I used to believe only girls are good at whining. My boy had since proved me wrong.

He drives me nuts when he whines. He can just go on and on for the longest time. No amount of coaxing can make him stop… His “best” record so far was continuous whining for more than an hour. Arhghhhhhhhhhh AH BOY AH! STOP IT! STOP YOUR WHINING!

Declan and his 3 Languages

Dec : mummy 我要follow你!
(ohhh no… my son is a typical Singaporean who mixes two language into one!!)
Dec : mummy 快点我等你!
Dec : 你吃什么?我要!
Dec : 什么来的?
Dec : 喂!你该嘛??

I’m quite glad that Declan did not grow up to be one of those “we the elite” type of banana man a.k.a asian trying to act class and am proud of the sad fact that they do not understand mandarin and can only speak english. Though he seems to prefer English, nonetheless, he’ll reply you in mandarin if you speak to him in Mandarin. However, I always wonder where he got his malaysian accent from. His mandarin teachers are all from China. I suspect it’s from the dad. His dad is a true blue Singaporean but somehow he also have a little Malaysian accent.

This little boy had also recognise the preferred language of people around him. He’ll initiate to converse in English to me, Mandarin to his Kong Kong and Hokkien to his Ah Ma. Yes, my boy speaks Hokkien too! Phew!!! I always worry that he will not pick up his own dialect. Too often we seen communications between grandparents and grandchildren broke down as the younger generations do not speak their own Dialect. I always hope that Declan will pick up Dialect so that he can communicate with his grandparents. Indeed he did.

I will make sure he continue to juggle between these 3 languages.

Change of Plans

Remember the results of my child bearing ultimatum in May 2006? Frankly speaking, I wasn’t quite thrill with the result. Though it allow me to pursue my dream, but it extinguises my hope of having another child. BUT now I’m glad to annouce there’s gonna be a change in plans!!

open your ears and your eyes ok???!! I’M GONNA HAVE A 2ND CHILD!!!!!!!!! yahooooooo!!! I’m overjoyed! Kiat finally agreed to a 2nd child. I didn’t force him ok??!! It was a mutual agreement. For that I will be pushing back my studies and probably won’t be able to pursue my dream as a psychologist, but it’s perfectly alright!! Being surrounded by a bunch of preggy blogging mummies really push my desire to have a 2nd kid over the edge! Agnes, Irene,Blurblur, you gals really motivated me!

Can you feel my joy?

I’ve gotten folic acid and will be taking it faithfully. Hopefully no.2 will come soon. Wait for my good news.
