Dinner was to be a simple affair today as Ah Ma said we've had a feast yesterday. So what did we have for dinner today? Sandwiches...
On top of that Ah Ma cooked soup. There were carrots, tomatoes, celery and chicken used to cook the soup. And she ladled out a little bowl for you before adding the salt to our soup. We were a little bit late preparing your portion of dinner as we had to bathe you first.
So what else did you have for dinner? We boiled an egg, mashed it and added some butter to it. On top of that, chef daddy toasted a slice of bread and melted some cheese before adding the eggs. Although you only ate half of the bread, you finished up all the soup. I'm sure you enjoyed your dinner, although it seemed little compared to your usual 1 1/2 bowls of moi moi.
But I'm having second thoughts about repeating this meal. Sigh.. such a messy affair!

Ah.. of course that would be the first thing I would say if I suddenly got $1million. But.. I don't. Too bad. It's just a question posed by Aunty Joanne to me. So let's see what I would do if i had that $1million...
1. Go on holiday. First place I would like to go is to Italy. Of course, the trip would be pointless if you and daddy didn't come with me. So we will go on that long overdue honeymoon. Maybe we can go visit Tua Ku too..
2. Of course some of the money will be kept in the bank for future use along with invested to "grow" the money. After all you will need money for your education too.
3. Perhaps I would be able to realise my dream of being a PTWM. I'll be able to spend my time with you and yet have enough and don't have to worry about spending money...
4. Do a good bit of shopping for my favourite things and for my favourite people too...
5. Give some to the needy

We woke up early today as mummy had an appointment with Dr Ng today. We thought that you may have to stay at home with Ah Ma as you were still sleeping by the time mummy was ready and daddy was starting to wake up. But shortly after daddy went into the bathroom, you woke up. Yippee.. so you will be going with us to the hospital. Daddy is on leave today. We were a little late arriving at the hospital for my 8.45am appointment. Luckily Dr Ng still hadn't started seeing patients yet. We waited a while and soon, it was mummy's turn. So we all went into his room. Daddy told you that Dr Ng is the first person you met when you came into this world. Haha...
After the check, you were walking around his room and you even touched Dr Ng. No fears of him at all eh? Or maybe daddy was right, you "know" him after all..
We went for breakfast at our favourite coffee shop. You ate some of the pau and we were wondering where to go, as it was only 10am. In the end, we went to Gurney Plaza. Yay! Retail therapy for mummy. After some shopping, we headed home, as we did not bring your moi moi along with us. We left too early this morning. Before we reached home, you were already asleep. Since daddy wanted to try his luck to buy the latest Harry Potter book from Tesco, we dropped by Tesco on the way back.
Mummy carried you while we were shopping and we were in luck. We got the last issue at the outlet! Too bad you woke up while we were queuing to pay for our purchases. So we went home and fed you lunch.
Ah Ma wanted to buy "mee goreng" from Air Itam and off we went. We left daddy at home. He was glued to his book. No hope of getting him out of the house! After a relatively long wait, we bought our "mee goreng" and again you fell asleep before reaching home.
What a busy and long day. But it was fun, good company, wonderful food and best of all: retail therapy!

We have been putting off taking you to the hairdresser. Firstly the Bumbo was in the condo and we have not been to the condo for a while. Even when we did go, we forgot to bring it home!
We finally remembered to bring it back on Sunday. So the initial plan was to bring you for a haircut on Monday, but unfortunately mummy and daddy left work a little late. So we planned to leave work early today and bring you in for the haircut.
When we reached home, you were upstairs playing with Kakak Wati. So mummy dressed you and off we went to Uncle Austin. This would be your 4th time seeing him. I was hoping that this haircut would go as well as your last one. I could only dream. You sat willingly on the Bumbo but the moment Austin started cutting you hair and he let it drop on you, you started kicking a big fuss! Sigh... So it took us almost and hour to have your hair cut.
But it was a disaster. He had to stop occasionally to let you calm down from crying. The last cut was the end of it. You moved suddenly and the hair on the back of you head is now uneven. *sigh*
Ah Ma thought that you looked ok, but she exclaimed loudly and insisted that we took you back for another haircut. Sigh.. if only it could be so easy.. I think you already have a phobia of getting a haircut.
So mummy tried to do some damage control. Hehe... snip some of your hair while you were sleeping just now. But the gap is still rather visible. I think I need to snip another round or two more!

Also, today at work, Tua Ku called mummy to say gpodbye as he was flying off to US. He also asked mummy to give you a big kiss from him. So here you go: *KISS*

|Your Weight is Ideal|
Your BMI is 21.3 - a healthy BMI falls between 18.5 and 25
Congratulations, you are the perfect weight for your height.
Even though you may not be entirely happy with your weight, you are healthy.
So gain or lose a few pounds if you want, but don't go too crazy!
Don't agree? Blame the government standards we based this test on!
Why did I do this test? Because Aunty Joanne kindly tagged me to do this test. See? I can still go without a diet. Still don't believe me? Lookie here.. daddy can still carry me..
Ok ok.. i cheated and took a very old picture. I'll go home and ask daddy to try and carry me! Truth be said, mummy still have some excess that needs to be lost, even thought I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight. But nope.. lazy me will be too lazy to go out to exercise. Chasing you around the house is tiring enough!

Anyway, as you know we could not make it for Ching Ern's birthday party, we had our own party at the condo. Daddy was having his friends over for a gathering. It could even be called a "baby gathering" just like the gathering we had before with mummy's friends. In fact, this was an even bigger gathering in terms of the number of children/babies that were present. But they are of a bigger age group. In the first gathering, you were one of the elder children, this time, you are the third youngest baby there. The other two are Kelvin (who turns 9 months old today) and Uncle Han's daughter who is only 3 months old.
We waited for you to take your nap at home, before packing up and heading to town to the money changer and to buy some drinks and party goods at Giant. After that we headed to the condo. The moment we reached, mummy and daddy got busy cleaning up the condo a little. By the time we were done, our first guests arrived. Soon everyone arrived and Ah Ma and Ah Kong arrived with the food that she prepared (salad, pork rendang and Fried squids). As usual, we ordered from our favourite pizza place, "Papa Pizza" who delivered. Ah Ma went to pick up friend beehoon and belacan friend chicken. On top of these, we had cakes that Aunty Cath brought and also fruits that Aunty Joanne brought.
The children seemed to enjoy themselves playing with your toys. In fact, Ah Kong even brought back a new toy for you from Singapore. I'm sure Ah Kong missed you too much and could not wait to show you what he got you. On top of that, he even bought you a cool pair of jeans and T-shirt. Wow! Lucky Evan...
Everyone seemed to have a great time, the children and the adults. It has been a long time since we all gathered. The last time was at TGIF when you were a lot younger. Even then, not all of them brought the children. It was a bigger group tonight.
Mummy prepared some fish porridge cooked with french beans today. Luckily mummy cooked extra. As usual, Kevin was served with my porridge (veggies only.. before mummy put in the fish). Even Uncle Brandon's younger son ate some of mummy's cooking. Luckily I did not get any negative feedback from my young "customers". Hhmm.. or is it because they are unable to complain...
We took lots of pictures, but it is not with our camera as mummy forgot to pack the camera when we left the house. Luckily there were several camera phones and Uncle Brandon brought a camera too. So hopefully everyone will be able to send me the pictures and I can post them here.
Mummy is so proud to say that you were a good boy and were not too much of a superglue tonight. In fact, sometimes you could even play with the toys and mummy could go off to do some things, and you would not cry when I was missing.
To our surprise, you were so tired today that you fell asleep even before our guests left. I thought that you would have been too excited to fall asleep. You fell asleep around your usual time: 10pm.

It was a long night but you were a good boy this whole evening. You were well behaved throughout dinner, giving hi-5's to the waiters, you sat in the stroller while we went shopping, you stretched your legs a bit at Hallmark and happily sat in the stroller when it was time to so back to the car.
By the time we reached home, you were already asleep. Too bad you woke up and played a while more before continuing your zzzzzzz! What a perfect evening, great dinner, wonderful company and retail therapy to top it off.. *grinning from ear to ear*
By the way, if you're wondering what the occasion is, you should know by the time you're old enough to read this blog. As for those who are supposed to know, so here's the reminder to you! *wink* I won't be disclosing what the occasion is here!

Daddy is having a busy week today. So mummy went home with Ah Kong during lunch time today. When we arrived home, you were having your bum cleaned. Just poo-pooed.
While mummy and Ah Kong had our lunch, you sat on your high chair, eating some apple. After a while you got bored and luckily Ah Kong had finished his lunch, so he kept you entertained until mummy was done with my lunch.
After that, we lazed around the house for a while, and it was mummy's turn to follow you around the house. You picked up the lotion and Ah Ma told you to put it back where you took it. At first, you looked like you wanted to refuse to put it back. You stood there holding the bottle and looking at it. After a while, you decided to be a good boy and put it back. So everyone said that you were such a clever boy. You also agreed that you were a clever boy, as you clapped your hands and grinned too!
What a wonderful lunch break I had today.. Of course the difficult part of it is saying goodbye. You cried when mummy had to go back to work. Sigh.. you win some, you lose some.. I miss you already.

Ah.. you may well know that our little Furbie was de-throned was the "king of the house' upon your arrival. Well, let's move over for a moment and let Furbie have the limelight this time, as requested by Aunty Joyce. She wants to know 7 random things about Furbie.
I'm the mummy, of course. Who else can be your mummy? Anyhow, Wei Xuan's mum tagged me and I'm supposed to decide between being a full time working mummy (FTWM) or a stay at home mummy (SAHM). Of course, there is the in-between that is to be a part time working mummy (PTWM). Ah.. and of course making a decision is very difficult and so this time, I'll be the fence sitter (OK fine, you can call me greedy) and opt to be a PTWM if I have to make a choice. That way I get the best of both worlds.Now let me tell you why I would like to be a PTWM (although I have no idea what part time job I can hold for now):
Firstly I would get to spend more time with you at home. I get the best of both worlds as in having quality and quantity time to spend with you. Who would not want to spend more time with you? After all you are only this little once in your life. Don't want to miss out on too much of your childhood. On top of that I get higher quantities of kisses and hugs from you! Double wow!
Being a part time mummy would mean I still have some income, so I get to indulge in you and me occasionally. Mummy would still be able to buy nice things for you. Then again, there's always that trusty supplementary credit card that daddy have given to me *wink*
Get to retain a wide network of friends who have different interests. Hey, by being in-between of being a FTWM and a SAHM, I get to meet other people who work and also other mummies when you go to school.
I have another point for being a PTWM. I get to learn from Ah Ma how to cook her yummy dishes. Hink Lerk's mummy commented once that Ah Ma must be a great cook, since she cooks up a storm every time there is a party. By the way, her seasoning for BBQ are to die for. I'm sure daddy would be glad of this point too, since he keeps asking me when I will be learning to cook for him. In case you don't know, he did most of the cooking when we were studying in Australia. Daddy's a good cook too.
Here’s how it works:
1. So easy peasy, if you were given a choice, would you be a SAHM or FTWM? Just provide 3 darn good reasons.
2. Include your post link to the list below and Finally,
3. Tag another three mommies
1. Immomsdaughter prefers to be a SAHM
2. Miche prefers to be a SAHM too.
3. SYH prefers to be a PTWM
4. Everydayhealy prefers to be a SAHM
5. Angeleyes prefers to be WAHM
6. Giddy Tiger prefers to be an SAHM
7. Jin Miin prefer to be a PTWM
8. Angie perfers to be a PTWM
Now who shall I tag?
Ok 2 will do.. I cannot think of anyone else to tag.. for now.
