Baby XJ @ 13 months old (going to be 14 months in 12 Nov) and she is only having 4 teeth ! 2 at the bottom front and 2 upper front.
I think I will need to seek help from the Tooth Fairy. Or do they just came and pick up dropped tooth only?
Lately, she does not like to eat bread anymore. She will pushed out the bread using her tounge and picked with her little fingers and pass it to whoever is near to her. She does not like to drink milk either and we will need to use toys to 'bait' her to drink. While she was busy playing with her toys, she will be sucking her milk away until she finished up the whole bottle! Feeding her porridge is also like a bonus. Some day she finished up the whole bowl, some day she doesn't.
Past few days, she finally took her 1st step unsupported. The most, she could walk 3 steps before sitting on her bum again. Aaaa....a moment which I've been waiting anxiously and is finally here. Soon, I can bring her shopping without worrying about carrying her in my arm (since she does not like to sit in the stroller).

When hubby and I took economy rice for our lunch, there is 1 simple rule which we will automatically apply. That is, I shall not pick the dishes he picked and vice versa ! With this, we will have more dishes to eat.
Below are just an example of economy rice which we normally eat. (Photos not taken by me)
If this is mine, (1 meat, 1 vege, 1 bean) .............. and...................COMBINED ......
taa daa.......we will ended up with 6 dishes on each plate ! and the price is always below RM8 for 2 (at our area here la).

The 3 of us developed cough with phlegm while hubby and SIL escape the virus. Guess both of their immune system are still strong.
This trip, we brought both the kids for some fun at the arcade. The previous trip with my parents, we only do some window shopping and walk around the Indoor Theme Park and outside for some cool & fresh air.
With hubby around, he is willing to spend $$ for the arcade because he himself loves to play them! As usual, YX was very excited and requesting me to take photo for him.
YX don't really know how to play the games, so hubby helped him out. But he is the master to choose which machine he wanted. It was real fun as it has been ages since hubby & I went to the arcade to have some fun! LOL. We used to frequent the arcade during dating time.

Courtesy of SIL who bought this doggie last month in Memory Lane at Sunway Pyramid. Now, she just can't PART with this red doggie and will cry for it during bedtime. She even wakes up in the middle of the night to look for it if she felt she is not hugging it! Once I put it in between of her arm, she felt so secure and comfortable.
And this tortoise....belongs to YX. Hubby bought this little fella when YX was a few months old because hubby said they look alike! *slap forehead* .... Also from Memory Lane @ Sunway Pyramid. Luckily YX did not have that habit of can't sleep without hugging or smelling this little fella when he was a baby. Thus, I've kept this poor tortoise in the box to avoid collecting dust!

Well, that's ME !!!
So embarrassing, I know.......but I really want to rant it out!
It happend this morning, in my office pantry.
I was careless afterall. Used to wear a pair of rubber slipper whenever I step into the pantry or bathroom. I wore them due to keep my feet clean and not because of protecting myself from the slippery floor.
But this morning, I just ignored that pair of rubber slipper and step into the pantry bare footed. Just my luck to step on a patch of water and in a split seconds...........wwwweeeeee............. I fell and sat on my bum ! Where the HELL did that patch of water came from?????? !!!!!
Luckily no one saw. Can you imagine how embarrassing it will be if my FIL or the clerk saw...........
Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! .........
1) I MUST wear that pair of faithful rubber slipper whenever I step into the pantry and bathroom.
2) Now I realised how slippery the floor can be when there are water on the surface !

Popo : hahahaha .........

She even went online website to read about a 3 years old's behaviour to understand more and to compare with her son's behaviour. Her findings was, it is NATURAL for her son to react like that.
That very night while she was feeding her son dinner, it turns out to be sour because the boy got a little cranky and whinning for his story book. S firmly said "If you finished up your dinner, mummy will read that storybook to you". As a stubborn toddler, he just could not digest that sentence and go against his mother. Still whinning, S tried to stay CALM and avoid hitting her son.
Out of no where, this youngest SIL came and hit the boy's arm REAL HARD! S was stunned! The boy, of course cried. It adds to her misery when the youngest SIL shouted at the boy asking him to keep quiet. Can you imagine such situation? The mother was trying to stay calm throughtout the feeding battle and trying her best, as a mother to make the feeding enjoyable but was interrupted by this scene.
Not the end yet. While the boy was still crying, the youngest SIL wanted to show her 'best discipline skills' and drag the boy outside of the house and closed the door! That of course lead the boy to cry even louder! The toddler does not even understand why he was being chased out of the house and he cried because he was afraid. S was so helpless and does not want to go against her SIL because she does not want to have a sour relationship with someone she has to stay with under one roof for the rest of her life (unless that SIL married out).
Still staying calm, S went out to carry her crying toddler son in and straight went to the bedroom, and cried. By the way, all the other family members were not around at that time. Only the youngest SIL, S and the boy at home.
S went out for tea with me the other weekend and was asking me for some advise on such situation because I was also staying with my in - laws and have a 3 year old (stubborn and mischevious) toddler just like her. Can't a mother who was learning to understand her toddler's behaviour be given a chance to improve their mother and child bonding rather than to be interfered with the harsh discipline act? WHY DO SOME PEOPLE LIKE TO SPANK OTHER PEOPLE'S CHILD ?

My dad will normally buy M&M / Smarties chocolates for YX and I will be nagging away when I saw them. To avoid hearing my nagging, dad will share the whole tube of chocolates with YX instead of giving him all. Dad said "It is just a little treat for your son", but sorry dad, I don't encourage my own kids to eat these. Am I too strict?
My in-laws on the other hand, will normally buy Yakult and Calci-Yum for the kids. They even intoduced some to baby XJ and lucky hubby had the same instinct as mine, quickly stop my MIL from giving them to baby. I'm not sure if it is safe for baby consumption, so I better play safe. MIL will be there (same as my dad) saying "Just a little bit of treat for your kids". Sigh!!!!
This is YX's favourites. I will normally only limit him to eat 1 tube a day after meals. If he knew he will be having this, he will quickly finished up his rice.

This photo was taken inside the complex of the Awana Cable Car station. Very nice wall paper. Just like we are visiting the aquarium huh! haha....
The pagoda. I still remember my brother, cousin brother and I always challeged to climb up to the pagoda to see who can reach the top. However, all 3 failed miserably because we were lack of stamina. And I'm always the 1st to surrender.......always out of breath after a few steps.
We made our 1st stop at the Mushroom park. Nothing much to see but can stop over for some photos taking. YX posing with the Giant Pumpkin teapot. He was so excited and asked "Mama, did you bring your camera?"
Then, we proceeded to check in at First World Hotel and was surprised by the crowd! Genting is forever crowded. We had to get a number to check-in and have to wait approx. 400 people ! There are a few check-in kiosk, but they doesn't work with my booking. However, with a relaxing mind and busy chit-chatting with my parents, the time passed so fast and finally, we got our room key.

Yes! I received them yesterday. I was so happy to see the parcel on my table when I came back to the office. I was away sending the 2 Myanmar workers to their embassy in KL for passport renewal. Upon seeing the parcel, the feeling was so great. It was like receiving something from someone special. ^_^
As I was opening the packaging, knowing I will be seeing those priceless moments photos, I just can't help myself smilling all the way. I was happy with the effectivness of the eoe Online. I sent in my order on Friday morning (around 9 am) and received my photos on Tuesday. The quality of the photos are good while the photos are also well protected. They packed the photos into a hard cover box and you don't have to worry about your photos being folded. You may read my 1st purchase here.
There are currently having a blogger review and if your review are selected, you will received 50 4R size and 2 8R size photos for FREE! Don't wait anymore and go to their website now if you do have precious photos for prints!

ELEPHANT EARs !!!
Everyone at the table gave a loud laugh at this silly boy. Then he use the saucers (for putting the chillies) and covered his eyes and said MONSTER!!! (I did not managed to snap that picture)
After dinner, we went to have some drinks at the newly open Station 1 Cafe at Terminal 2 because SIL said the environment there was nice. So, we just tried it out. The food is not that tasty, but the drinks are somehow rather unique with special combinations of fruits or honey. This time, YX will not be bored anymore because they do provide games and magazines.

... the day which she bear the most unbearable pain in her life, EVER.
.... the day which marked the start of going through the most uncomfortable moments in her life, for at least 2 months
.... the day which marked the end of her freedom
And a BIG THANK YOU for bringing my hubby into this world !!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY hubby......I will never say you are a year older, but WISER.
As you may be a boring hubby, (admit it, ok!), but you are a very responsible man. A man who can be counted for, a man who are trustworthy. You may not be a good listener, but you are a joker who always make me laugh at your *silly jokes*.
May you have a blessed birthday...............as usual.......NO PRESENT for you! save money for the kids and our wish holidays, ok? *wink wink*

Months ago, I chanced upon an online photo website, eoe Online where you could do online shopping on the photographic products, share your photos with family and friends, order online printing, enter photo contest and etc. I was actually more interested with the e-prints and has the urge to send in my order after understanding on how it works. After a few considerations, I finally sent in my request online. I've blogged about it here.
It is very easy to use the e-print uploaded photo options. You will need to sign up as a member, go to the e-print tab and choose which software you wish to use to upload your photos for printing. Once completed, you will be prompt to make payment either by credit card or bank-in option. After payment was done, your photos will soon be deliver to your door steps conveniently by a reputable courier service company. No hassles, no worries.
The price is simply irresitable where a 4R print cost RM0.30/piece and 5R cost RM0.50/piece. It is relatively cheaper than those photo shops outside. No additional charges will be imposed and no minimum quantity are required for your order. You will just need to upload whatever photos you requested for print, and if your order is RM35 and above, you will enjoy a free delivery. Doesn't that sounds convincing enough?
If you still have loads of photos needed to be print out, check it out at eoe Online website. It is so simple yet convenient. I'm going to send in another batch of my order now!
In my heart, I always planned to travel back hometown during the weekends. But when that weekends arrived, my plan somehow shifted to something else. I know my parents are very dissapointed but they never blame me. I'm glad to have a very supportive and understanding parents.
My dad even told us once that if we are not free to travel back home, he and mum can always come up to Seremban to visit us instead because both of them are pensionner. They have the time for the whole world. These words are so comforting and took away my guilt instantly.
Dad & Mum, thanks for being so thoughtful. Can't wait to meet up with both of you tomorrow. Have a pleasant journey and drive safely.
* I called my parents almost everyday * Since it is difficult to find time to visit them, I make it a point to call them instead. And mum is bringing me her home-made kaya!!! Yummy !

So, I've well planned for this morning to get a pack of hot Nasi Lemak on my way to the office. Happily in my mind, I've been picturing on how delicious the rice to go with the anchovies sambal and a fried 'bull eye' egg. Sigh! my favourite shop did not open. Giving myself another hope (as along the way, there is another stall selling nasi lemak), I drove furthure up and found that the shop is closed as well!!!!!
Dissapointed twice, I decided to head to the stall nearby my office to grab a pack. The Nasi Lemak is not that tasty, but I just have to satisfy my crave. Do you believe my luck? The makcik told me her Nasi Lemak was SOLD OUT!!!!
Pulling a long face, I came back to the office with 2 curry puffs which i bought from the makcik and made a glass of hot MILO. Sigh!!! my tounge is still searching for the Nasi Lemak taste.
Note: NO! This is not a pregnant crave! Just my 'tham chiak' behaviour. *wink*

I used flash to take the picture and it turn out clear, but do not have the candle effect. Since we have no where to hang the lantern, we just hung them up at the cloths line.

I never realised that day by day past so fast and very soon, we will be celebrating the mooncake festival which happen to falls on this coming Saturday. Gonna let the kids play with lantern.
Sorry baby.......mummy's memories are getting bad nowadays.
HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY !

SIL : YX, what are you doing? Put down your hand ! Dirty boy !
YX : GOT SHIT LA !
Everyone burst out laughing at him while he still continue to work hard on that piece of SHIT !
Previously, YX does not know how to dig nose. If ever his nose is itchy, he will rub with his hand. Recently, he knows how to use his pointer to dig instead. I think it is the motor skill a kid will achieve as they grows. Hopefully he will soon understand the sensitivity of such act.
