We Went For a Movie

We woke up and had no specific plans. Ah Kong and Ah Ma are away in Hanoi for a holiday with their friends. So after we woke up, got ready to go out and headed to Gurney Plaza. The only movie suitable for you was Megamind which was only in 3D and when daddy asked if you wanted to watch it wearing spectacles, you didn't. So we finally opted on :
Picture Source
Yup, Rapunzel. You said OK when daddy asked, so we decided on this. We hurriedly had lunch after buying the tickets and headed to the cinemas. So which part of the movie did you like most? I'd say you only started to pay more attention when all the popcorn were gone!
Of course you loved it when Rapunzel bopped Flynn on the head with the frying pan. You laughed out loud every time she did that.
It was a lovely cartoon and we all enjoyed it. Despite it being SOOO cold in the cinema.

Drinking Juice

It's never easy for us to introduce you to something new. Or even to re-introduce something to you. You used to love mango. Now you wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. You'd take orange juice but never touch an orange (not in juice form).
Tonight we went out for dinner as you had asked to have rice for dinner and that is something neither daddy nor mummy is very good at preparing. *Ah Kong and Ah Ma are away on holiday* Daddy ordered his favourite umbra juice with sour plum and when he offered it to you, you surprised us by agreeing to give it a try. Even more surprising is that you loved it!

Even got you to pose with your drink.. for the record!

Now, if we could only convince you to take vegetables willingly...

Nobody but you

You love the son "Nobody" by the Korean group the Wondergirls. Even more after the ABC class performed a dance to this song during the school concert. So here's your version of the dance:

I have another video of you dancing to (almost) the whole song. But you were so exhausted just before the music finished *grin*.

P/S: Even Ah Kong and Ah Ma know when to clap in this song!!

As You Were Writing

We were in your room today and I was reading my book while you were trying to write the word 手 (shǒu). But the room wasn't quiet. Instead you were singing and humming as you practised your writing. I stopped reading and watched as you sang and practised your writing. It's a good thing you didn't find this writing practise a torture (as I did when I tried to learn Mandarin).
The school holiday has begun, but since you're in half-day school, you'll be having school till the end of the month. I have no idea what to let you do to keep you occupied in December yet. We'll find out soon!

Introducing.. Evan's Lego

It started when we walked into this Lego shop in The Gardens when we were in KL. You picked the Lego Creator which was a 3 in 1 set. Then we picked up the other 2 sets under this range when we were back in Penang. You loved it. And most importantly you started to have the patience to sit and slowly follow the instructions in the booklet to create whatever vehicle you wanted.
We recently bought another Creator set. It is also a 3 in 1 but the steps is more complex. Daddy had to sit with you and slowly guide you to follow the instructions. The first few times you took almost an hour to complete it. Yesterday you built the airplane while daddy and I took turns to help you when you asked for help. Today daddy and you changed it into a speed boat.

Looks like this is quite a worthwhile toy. You get to play with it and also learn to extend your attention span. You can now build with the simple set by yourself and complete it within 20-30 minutes.
