Go Away You, Haze

Even before the haze is actually visible, you are both showing symptoms caused by the haze.  Ko-ko started coughing and some mornings woke up with a bad sore throat. Mei-mei started with watery eyes and now runny nose too.
Hope the haze goes away soon and you'll both quickly recover. Muakkss.

Chatterbox Evelyn

Left you home with daddy while I went for replacement music classes with Ko-ko. Daddy said you decided to have a lengthy conversation with him:
This is the first time we hear you talking like that. I'm telling daddy that you are trying to call him. Right? So make sure when you wake up in the middle of the night or when you do a poo poo call da-da-da-da-da, ok?

Poo Spa for Evelyn

You were asleep as I was doing some work. When you woke up you were contented to play in the cot so I continued on my computer. Then it smelled like you had done a poo. But I continued to work.
The next time I looked up you seemed to be covered in carrots. At first I thought that you had vomited.  The upon closer inspection... OH MY GOODNESS!!! You were covered in poo... not just you, but the baby cot, cot sheet, mosquito netting and I don't know what else...
I had to put down my notebook, call Kakak to help clear up and carried you upstairs to wash up.
As you were covered from head to toe with poo, I could not put you into your bath tub. So I had to put you on the shower floor and wash off your poo using the shower. Thank goodness you were a good girl and sat still while I washed the poo plus carrots from your body. You did not even fuss when I got water on your face.
Phew.. what a way to start the day.  Certainly put me off carrots for a while!
On hindsight, I should have stopped to take a picture first. Hehe.. maybe this was your secret to your baby soft skin.. POO SPA!

Evelyn Had A Fall

It was in the middle of the morning and I had fallen sleep when suddenly I felt you slip out of my arms. And before I could react, you were on the floor and crying.
Picked you up and you calmed down quite quickly. I thought that you seemed OK. But then when I turned on the light, I saw that you had knocked yourself on the corner of my bedside table. Sigh.. another bruise? Thank goodness daddy got up and brought up some ice. So mummy put the ice on your cheekbone and then went back to sleep.
The next morning, you seemed perfectly fine, except for a little cut on the cheekbone. But now.. it is all healed. Phew..
Reminder to self: Do not sleep on the job :(

Our Day at the Beach with Evan

Daddy and I wanted to do something seeing that you were on holidays. So this week we went around looking and buying the things we needed for the surprise we had in mind for you. Instead it looked like we were in for a bigger surprise. When daddy told you about our plans to bring you to the beach we got these responses from you:
It's so hot...
So boring in the beach
Try as we could we could not persuade you to go. That night daddy tried again.  It seems you had some things about the beach which worried you:
Are there sharks?
Are there jelly fish?
Not sure what daddy told you but he finally managed to convince you to go. So early this morning mummy woke up to make the egg sandwiches from the eggs kakak had already boiled for me.
When everyone was finally ready, we loaded the car and off we went... to buy fried noodles before heading to Pantai Pasir Panjang in Balik Pulau.
We arrived just before 10.30 am and we walked along the rather secluded beach until we found a nice shady spot. Had some of our noodles before daddy moved us to another spot as the earlier one seemed rather close to the water.
After slathering some sun block you headed to the sea with daddy. It was so nice to hear you squeal in delight as the waves crashed into you. 

Halfway daddy spotted a jellyfish which got you really worried. It was already dead but then after that you made sure to avoid the spot which it was last seen.
Daddy took a walk along the beach while we both continued to play in the sand and sea.
After two hours, it was time to head home. Daddy saw that the tide was coming in and he was worried that we might not be able to get back to the car. So we quickly packed up, rinsed off the sea water, changed and headed back to the car.
At the car we had a larger bottle of water. So we got to rinse more and then got into the car and headed home. Before that though, we made a quick stop to buy durians seeing we were in Balik Pulau. We came prepared with a large container and cling wrap to ensure that daddy's precious car does not smell of the durians. We were too full from the noodles, sandwiches and drinks so no chance for laksa. Perhaps next time, when we come we could come with more people so that you have more company to play with.
