Kai at the fish farm

It has been raining lots, and then some. Last weekend, once the rain had reduced to a slight drizzle, we brought Kai to one of the fish farms at Pasir Ris.

Cheeky boy in the car

He's wearing an aptly themed shirt :)

I havent washed my car in bloody WEEKS. In fact, about a mth now - ever since the photoshoot. Everytime I wana wash it, Im either bloody tired or busy or it's raining.

Kai is going through some hyperactiveness now, and Im close to tearing my hair out. He's wakeful, I'm sleepless.

This is a horrid horrid week. I've been sooo friggin' busy but it seems like I havent achieved anything. I wish I can take a looonggg break away from it all.

Hanging by the pool

What a way to wrap up our Sunday - hanging by the pool.
The weather was beautiful - not raining but not humid.

I worked on my tan while Hubby went for his swim.
I love it!

Revamped cereal

A quick brekkie fix in the mornings when we are rushed for time:
- Organic cereal
- fresh milk
- honey corn flakes crushed into smaller bite-size pieces
- a dollop of Manuka honey

Caution: Pls do not feed your child honey if he/she is less than a year old.

Otherwise, it's a much-loved recipe and Kai has been polishing his bowl for the past week!
Time to come up with a new recipe for next week.

Gone shopping!

Not me, but my son!
He is the great imitator nowadays... copying our every action.

Here, he is hanging one ratty plastic bag off his arm and pretending it to be a handbag while he goes "shopping". HAHA

Very yaya somemore... LOL

I'm increasingly convinced that he's got more of my genes.

Celebrating our Nation's 45th birthday~

In the end, Hubby & I didnt manage to charter the boat to celebrate ND because firstly, it was fully booked, and secondly, I was sick with flu and the works. But nonetheless, we managed to do something special and totally fun with friends and Baby A, minus the sweat / sticky armpits / shoving with thousands.

As it's Adam's FIRST time celebrating National Day, we were glad that it went fabulously :)
We had a potluck gathering at Andy's Indonesian-Chinese friend's pad, which is at Suites @ Central, Devonshire Road.

The 16th storey apt even had its own personal elevator. Awesome.

Mummy, Daddy and Baby A had the birds' eyeview in the balcony.

Adam on his throne waiting for the airplanes and fireworks.

The view was magnificient and breathtaking

and finally it starts!

Everyone had dinner before the fireworks begun

Start-shaped fireworks

That's all the photos of fireworks, taken with my DSLR.

Thanks for all the food, icecream cake and champagne everyone. We enjoyed the evening very much :)

Andy, Veron & Adam

The youngest F1 driver in the making :P

Kai loves to drive. He has so many car toys at home, and as if that's not enough, he loves being behind the wheel of Mummy's car as well.

He even has a pair of shoes for the part. Heh heh

"Will Uncle Roland and Uncle Ringo teach me GoKarting and car-racing when I'm older?" :P

Champagne & Red wine party

Well, some person got upset with my post on wanting to buy a H-bag. I'm not sure why, but if talking about bags makes certain people upset/unhappy/angry, then I guess I shall stop talking about bags then. I really dont mind :P since life is more than bags and material stuff.

I am not apologetic for the way I live, because nothing comes to us for free - Hubby & I work hard for what we have.
But I do realise, we cant please everyone whom we come across.
Thankfully, we do have supportive and true friends who will stick it out with us and love us for who we are. And that's what matters.

On a parting note, it's the weekend! and Hubby & I are *hoping* to throw a Champagne & Red wine party cum fishing trip on the N-day long weekend on a chartered boat.

I love love love weekends, dont you? :)

A long longgg time

When I went back to work after my M-Leave, it seemed like a long eternity before I could count down to my final days in my company... but now, it is already turning August. What a long and agonising wait.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, because *hopefully* by the end of year, our home sweet home will be ready and I will be a full time Tai-tai dropping my boy off at school and then going shopping with my other SAHM friends at Chanel and Balenciaga, discussing about throwing dinner parties and playdates at whose house.

Nah, just kidding... I will probably be a full-fledged Aunty cum Housewife cum Maid to my 2 men. HEHEHE
I m soooo counting down to the final days.... :)

Saturday family times

After Gymboree, FIL threw a treat at Grand Copthorne because of our 4D 2nd prize winnings.

Daddy A & Baby A

My cheeky monster grinning because of the food spread on the table.

We were simply too busy gorging ourselves with the crab legs and buffet spread to take anymore photos... But it's Ok. I'm so full that I look like I'm 2 mths preggy!

After dinner, Andy & I went for a spin along ECP. The wind is therapeutic to our tired souls.

Back at home this morning before going out....

Kai has a new muse!
Something from Munchkin which Chris recommended that's good for snacking tods

"look Ma, no spill!"


It's a brilliant and inexpensive little contraption, but just dont be ambitious and put too tiny pieces of snacks in it ^^

I can smell the Weekend :)

The precious long-awaited time of the week is here again - I'm cherishing it more than I ever did for the past few weeks because Period.

Damn I can hardly pry my eyes open and I felt like keeling over to sleep at work.

But well, the week is all over and tomorrow, it's Gymboree again, and FIL is giving a treat at Grand Copthorne :)
I'm so happy just thinking about it.

Playgroups in the East

Andy & I have been searching for a suitable Playgroup for Kai for the past 2 weeks, and the outcome has been disappointing :(

Our criteria are:
- daily 2-3 hour sessions
- must be near our home so MIL can drop him off and pick him up.
- must be clean and the children happy
- must not be too much of classroom learning, and more of play, music, art & craft and preferably outdoor activities
- Teachers turnover should not be high, and they should be happy in their job

is that really such a tall order? I thought that was common sense, yet so hard to fulfill.... -__-
Initially, I've thought of sending Kai to those chi-chi centres but to be realistic, unless I'm a SAHM, I can't really do that because there would be nobody else to bring Kai there.

If any Mommies have any recommendations for Playgroups pleaseee please let me know!
