Birthday video

A friend of mine did a video for my children's birthday party. It was such a sweet gesture :) It's the best "birthday appreciation gift" to me. The video captured some moments of my prince & princess' growing up...Hope you enjoy this as much as i did!

Thank you my friend! ;)
An outing to Singapore Science Centre! Enjoy the pictures!

Recently, someone commented that my blog should be changed to a "children's blog" because almost all posts are children-related/linked/concerned etc. Haha! I looked through my entries and saw that it was quite true! life is closely knitted with my children, that's why...
My blog = My children's blog :p

Yet another entry on my lovely children and their cousins!
This time, we were off to the airport for a Mother's Day lunch cum "Send-the-daddies-off" outing!

The children saw the trolley and couldn't resist going for a ride on it!
See the kids' pose - They were born for the cameras!

Me & Daddy with the kids! Goodbye Daddy, come back soon!
My Godson Samuel is celebrating his birthday!! How time flies!

This year, Samuel's mummy brought Samuel & the children to take the Duck Tour. Jeri & Kymmy had such fun with the duck-whistles. Check out the pics below...

Even my Chyanne was amused by the duck-whistle!
Daryl:"Huff-puff! Me gonna blow the roof off!"
A very happy birthday to Samuel! May you grow taller & stronger each year!

Chyanne's 1st venture into the world!

Hi everyone! I'm back with more pictures!

My sweetie pie is all grown up and ready for school!
Today is her first day of school but it seems more like Kiang's & my first day of school Ha! Ha! I think we are more excited than her. I made sure she slept by 8.30 p.m. the night before so that she can wake up at 8 a.m. today, and guess what? When i was trying to wake her up, she mumbled "later" ... Can you imagine? Faint! But we made it to her school right on time.

As you can see from the pic, there are moments she really seem lost ... i bet she must be thinking, "Why am i here?", "I am so tired ... can i go home already?". Ha! Ha!
Well, at the end of the day, i will rate her 8/10 for being so ready at school. She only cried for a few seconds when she was tired and was looking for me to get her pacifier for her. But for most part of the day, she was very cooperative, singing along with the teacher and she even fed herself two servings of snacks at school.

Chyanne, mummy is so proud of you!!!

Out to ECP!

It's a day of sun and fun and sand, lots of sand, for the children!

Building sandcastles were such a fav childhood past-time. Nowadays, i still do build sandcastles but they are mainly in the air ;p Seeing the children attempting to build something out of not-so-spectacular grains of sand was a great joy, for both themselves and all parents.
Working hard at the sand
Children, you can do it!
Caught in the act!
The older children chose to cycle that day.
After all the messy activities, we went to their fav HK cafe for their yummy instant noodles followed by an hour of carnival rides near Mac.

Signing off with 2 adorable pics!


Dong-Dong-Dong Qiang!!!!
Chinese new year has come and gone... I was uploading my camera's pics when i came across these photos.

Time really flies ... Before the new year, everyone is busy spring cleaning, packing things, buying things etc. Months of preparation for just that few days of celebration ... Ha! Ha! What a tradition!

Well, my CNY was a usual one. There was nothing very exciting... On the first day, i followed my MIL (mother-in-law) to visit Kiang's side of the family.

Chyanne trying to devour the goodies!
Nowadays it has reduced to visiting 4 homes. I remembered the first year when I followed them around, we visited 13 homes in one day and met the SAME group of people for 13 times on different locations!!! All this with baby Daryl in me... Faint, right? Our second day is super free and easy. We visited my mum & went to my 92 year old grandma's house for lunch.

And after that, we are free! So we stayed home & invited different ones to come visit us. Ha! Ha! As we were so bored during the CNY holidays, it always brightens our day when friends come over. I think Melvin, Johnson & Shilin were at my house for 4 days in a row! Ha! Ha!
Melvin said during those few days, he visited me more often than spending time with his dad at home man! LOL!

Wild at Wild Wild Wet!

Chyanne is a genius! She has such a flair for photography. When the kids were going wild at wild wild wet one afternoon, she took the digi cam n snapped away. Everyone knows that still life is (supposedly) the simplest type of photography cos they are, erm, still? To capture moving objects requires more techniques i.e. stable hands and all. See Chyanne's work...

Kiang & Me right in the centre of the pic, as though measured from the borders! Ha!

Ok, we did aid her by keeping still... but still, we are in the category of "moving objects" aren't we? ;p 2 years going 3 and she can already shoot pics!

See the big brothers and sisters running about splashing wet everything and everyone who are in their paths...

Psst, this Ratatouille border is real cheerios ya? They brighten up the pics! Not like they need any brightening though... the kids were exuding energy :)

Kiang's Solo

I said goodbye to 2007 in Stewards River Boat at Marina Bay. With more than 50 friends, we booked the River Boat to recollect the last few moments of the year. The ever spontaneous girls put up a great show singing cheena oldie Cha-cha-em-bo, Sophie, Kelvin & team did a drama which played out the lovely memories the last 12 months and others grooved on the dance floor but the highlight of the performance was definitely Kiang's! Having not heard him sing a mandarin pop song for ages, that night my heart swooned again... :) That's the power of love for you.

Enjoy this video clip i managed to extract out!

Charming :) :) :)

Kids @ Zoo

For my ailing memory's sake, the next few posts will be flash-backs of the last few days :)

See a group of mothers tearing their hair out a few days before school reopens. No, not because of school textbooks that were yet to be bought, uniforms unpressed, tattered bags yet to be replaced... and oh! Socks too! Gosh... that brings me back to the never ending list of things to do. Well, guess my darlings are worth the busy bee syndrome. Anyway, we were cracking our brains over an issue - Where should we bring our children out to enjoy their last few days of freedom??!

In the end, we realised the all too conventional idea is presumably the best after all - Animals @ the Zoo! Sure to keep the kids busy! With that, we set off to the Singapore Zoological Gardens and the next thing we knew... a new understanding of "chaos" was revealed to us parents. Kids are amazing in that they never fail to bring these familiar words up another level of intensity.

The water playground was a greater draw to the kids compared to the animals in the end.. But well, we just wanted a day out for the kids to play with their friends! :)


Sorry for the disappearance! The past weeks have been packed PACKED P-A-C-K-E-D with Christmas celebrations, New Year Eve's countdown, New Year's Day boggle and well, u can name the rest...

In the midst of the hussle & bustle, my family was introduced to a new game - The Nintendo Wii!! The 5th home video game console released by Nintendo, Wii is the direct successor to the Nintendo GameCube. The Wii Remote, a wireless controller which is used as a handheld pointing device can detect acceleration and orientation 3-D. Amazing eh?

I had a great laugh when my friends came over one afternoon to try out boxing on Wii. You'll know what i mean when u see the videos below... Hold your breath, their facial expressions are hilarious!
