Quiet Dinner at Home

We decided to have a quiet dinner at home instead of going out for our usual Saturday night dinner. We did not plan to cook, instead just bought and arranged the things we wanted. Only had to cook the sausages.  
Pre-dinner cocktail

Our platter (which kept getting taxed)

Wine with the platter. Match made in heaven

Little model had to pose with the wine too

Ah Kong and Ah Ma went out to buy burgers. So they came back and we shared our food also (bread and chippies and wine).

I'd say the happiest person would be Evan: the cheese monster.

Mickey and the Roadster Racers

You had heard from your schoolmates about the event and kept asking to go. So we finally went to Gurney Paragon for you to enjoy the Roadster Racers.

After doing a little shopping to qualify, we picked up the tickets and started the fun.

Then it was time to pick up Ko-ko. We parked at the side to let him have some fun playing with his friends before picking him up.

Little Ballerina

Our little ballerina had her first ballet performance. The shows were held in Penang PAC in Straits Quay. You performed twice, but since the first day fell of Hari Raya and Kakak was going out, we had to skip that show and attend the show on the second day. 

We were discouraged from taking any pictures, so I only have these from before and after the show:
Goofing around before the show starts

Finale.. group picture

You were so excited and kept trying to look out for us

After the performance, we headed to Healy Mac for an early dinner. You even shared your "flowers" with me:

We're so proud of your performance. It was amazing. I could see daddy smiling (in the dark) as he watched you perform.

Little Missy is Down... with HFMD

It all started last Wednesday when you called me to say that you had a fever. Dismissing it as nothing much, Ah Ma gave you medicine and we headed back home after gym. That evening, you told me that your mouth felt painful. It thought that was your usual complaint if you were exposed to something causing your allergy.

The next day, you stayed at home to rest after the fever. When we went home you complained again about your painful mouth. This time daddy heard you and asked you to open your mouth. Oh my goodness.. it was full of ulcers. So we rushed to the hospital and luckily we made it on time as the last patient and had to be isolated while waiting to see the doctor, just in case our suspicion was true that you had HFMD. 

We waited for a while before we finally got to see Dr. Mary. And she confirmed it. Yup, you had HFMD and we were given strict instructions on how to handle it (always wash hands.. and I think I washed my hands at least 30 times each day while taking care of you) and what to look out for after recovery (possible side effects).

I stayed at home on Friday with you and we were both isolated in my room most of the day. You were quite well behaved, either watching TV or sleeping. The weekend was also spent at home with you playing around the house. The ulcers must have been really painful but you didn't complaint much. The only indication that you were in discomfort was the lack of you talking and of course, loss of appetite. By Sunday, you were almost back to normal, being more talkative (even talking in your sleep!!) and eating quite well.  

This was how you looked on the weekend:
Still tired on Saturday

Feeling better on Sunday, fixing the jigsaw puzzle

P/S: Gosh little girl, Ko-ko was asking why you sit so unlady-like.. 

On Monday, after much persuasion you allowed me to go to work in office. Tuesday was a public holiday and I guess you couldn't stand being cooped up at home anymore. Thinking we were going out, you asked me why I dressed you in shorts and then started to pack your handbag to go kai-kai.

In the end, we decided to buy food home to eat as you still had some ulcers. But you came long with us just for the car ride.

Today you look 99% perfect with just 2 last ulcers to clear. 

Get well soon darling. *kiss*kiss*

Happy Birthday, Ah Chor

Since Ah Chor's birthday fell on a weekend, we also joined in to celebrate her birthday. As usual, the both of you made her a card. Coincidentally, you both picked almost the same colored paper/card to make her birthday card. Here's the final output:

And the inside of her card:

And the both of you happily giving her the card at the restaurant.

She still cannot imagine that she is an "Ah Chor"

Teacher's Day 2018

This year we started our Teacher's Day project earlier. I just needed to keep reminding Mei-mei not to tell the teachers what we are making before the actual day. 
Here she is painting the "stems" of the flowers

A little message for the teacher at the back. She insisted on being in the picture also

As for Ko-ko.. the lazy boy didn't want to make anything.
