Kowloon, Hong Kong. Nov 2010

Back in Kowloon, HK.

a nice cozy metropolitan room for three in TST

We survived! and escaped from the mad rush unscathed.

with a baby in a pram somemore. *Pat ourselves on the back*

We walked and we walked, and we ate and we ate, and we shopped and we shopped!

Disneyland, HK 2010

At Changi Airport T3 waiting for boarding. Mummy & Baby wearing matching greys & jeans!

Finally touched down and checked into Disneyland, Lantau Island for the night :)

Disney toiletries.

At the Enchanted Garden

Kai said "dog dog". Clever boy!

My husband finds himself a hot date with long lashes & pouty lips

We forgot to feed the baby!?

Kai recognises Mickey as "mee mah!" (Mickey Mouse).

We even bought Mickey Mouse diapers for Kai cos he couldnt stop saying "mee mah!" at them. Kawaii overload can?! :D

Trunki suitcase for the big at heart

Travelling with kids can be stressful, especially when they have to be confined in a small area for hours. Trunki is a lifesaver. My tod loves it, and I most certainly love it too!

It is an approved handcarry luggage which your kid can ride on or be pulled along by you.
Most importantly, it is lightweight and has a well thought out design for you to keep his knick knacks and keep occupied on the plane with his favourite toys.

Comes in an array of different colors.

Now, everyone can be happy :)

Crayola Mess-free markers

photo from www.cloettafazer.com

Another clever invention to keep tykes busy minus the mess, by Crayola.

The "neat" patches of brown face and a bit of purple hat is done by me. The messy greens are done by Kai.
I thought this activity could save me some time watching over Kai, but Kai seems so proud of his artwork that he insists that Andy, MIL and I sit and watch him color.
If either of us walks away, he gets upset.

I sure hope this will be a worthy investment to keep him busy on the plane.
"Look Ma, no mess!"

My inane Sunday

I suddenly had the most revolting cramps and bouts of explosive diarrhoea, so I decided to stay home while my boys went out without me. Boo.

I woke up at 3pm and had my lunch. Remedy for gastro-enteritis.

Then shortly after, my babies are back!
My eldest, age 324 months old.

My youngest, age 17 mths.

Shoe sale.

There's a sale going on at United Square at the moment.
Trade in any pair of your tot's old shoes - any brand, any condition - and get $20 off a brand new pair of Osh Kosh shoes. That's practically half-price.

Me: Hon, I found a great deal today while browsing at United Square before work. (and I went on to tell him the above)
Andy: You know what's Mankind's greatest money reducing agent ever discovered?
Andy: It's WOMEN.

Bloody hell where got Hubby liddat say the wife. Hahahaha

I really need to stop buying stuff, especially since we're already going to HK next week!

A random noon with Mum's friend, Joryl

My long time ex-colleague cum nursing friend came over to visit today.
SO sweet of her to drop by. We havent been catching up for over a year now! The last time we saw eachother was at Kai's Full mth shower. Time flies indeed.

She's amusing Kai with her iPhone, letting him play with the apps and listening to the read-aloud story of Three Little Pigs. Kai is clearly bemused.

Thank God for girl friends.

Happy Birthday to Deepa!

Date: 23 Oct 2010 Saturday
Venue: The Aston, Poolside BBQ
Time: 6.30pm till late

The good people. They are Andy's friends whom he knows from their weekly football games.
There was music blasting from their patio and cocktail everywhere. Certainly feels as though they brought the entire Butter Factory back to The Aston!

Andy & Kai playing at the playground while Stefano and the other boys are busy BBQing away so that we can be fed!

Our son is doing his little break-dance to Lady Gaga music!

He was on a high tonight, dancing by the pool. OMG we gave birth to a Party Animal!
I think he had one too many brandied strawberry.
"Put your hands up in the air; put your hands up in the air"

We're wearing our most favourite color!

Andy & his Italiano football pal, Stefano and hs lovely wife Laurine.

Choc cake from Four Seasons. Yum!

Time for Birthday girl to make a wish and blow the candles!

Deepa's dad gave her a doll, and he told her this will be the last "childish present" he's giving her, because she & Arjun are getting married!
Arjun gives Deepa a hug & kiss. Sooooo sweet we can die!

And there's no better way to enjoy a pool party than to get in!

OoooooOo Whee~! Having a splashing good time!

Happy Birthday Deepa!
Thank you Arjun for inviting us.
Obviously, we had an enjoyable night with the great food and excellent company.
You guys are really a fun bunch and really crack me up :D
Andy, Veron, Adam.
