This and That

Updating my blog with this and that.
Destinee often calls me in the office and asks me to buy cakes for her. Her intentions of having the cakes are blowing the candles and singing the Happy Birthday Song and this is a monthly or biweekly event ... aiyo ... this girl of mine.

Des getting ready to blow the candle after singing the Happy Birthday song.

Dat's Des with Ashley (Vicki's daughter). Ashley is a very friendly little girl and can get acquainted with Des very fast. This was taken in Jazzmint's house during her Vkytore's full moon celebration. The children were presented with a party pack and Des was so happy to receive the gift. Whose kid doesn't? Once she received the pack, she was oredi fumbling what was inside ... haiya .....
Yeah, yeah, I got to meet Jazzmint, Mr. Hon, Faythe (she's a cute little one, still with spiky hair) & Vkytore (he was all the while sleeping in the bassinet) - he has spiky hair too. When u look at him, it's like when u are looking at Mr. Hon senior (kekeke). Sharon was there with hubby and Brendan. Brendan is a shy little fella (heehee, maybe in front of strangers). Vicki came with hubby and her A&W (Ashley and Wayne). I was so glad to meet them. One disappointment was dat I didn't manage to meet Vichelle (Joo's mommy), Sue (Ivan's and Izac's mommy) and Chinnee (QiQi's mommy). I really looked forward to meeting them when Jazz told me she invited them. Chinnee couldn't make it as she was out of town, Vichelle went off before I arrived and Sue was late. Well, there's always another time.

Bought some Magic Painting Books for Des from MPH, The Curve. I was trying to find the copies which I bought for her previously but after searching high and low the whole bookstore, there was none to be found until I went to a shelf at a corner and found the above and I grabbed each of whatever they had.

Elyss bought a pair of Pingu sandals from the net for Des. Aren't they cute?

Destinee trying on her Pingu sandals and she just love wearing them.

Destinee's old tricycle and it's a bit too 'tiny' for her.

So, Pappy bought a new pink-coloured bicycle for her. Before having this, she oredi hinted me she wanted one like Wien (Jess's elder princess) jeh jeh's bicycle which she saw from Jess's blog.
It took her two rounds to get used to it and she was off cycling on her own. She has to cycle outside the house as she cannot manouevre it in our teeny weeny apartment.

This cute little cake was bought the day before yesterday to celebrate Des's birthday (Chinese calendar). Heehee, she'll be having 3 birthdays this year as she was born on the 1st day in the 7th month of the Chinese calendar. There are TWO 7th-month this year (according to the Chinese calendar - 'yun' (lunar) 7th month). Some people told me dat kids esp. GIRLS born on the 1st and 15th day of the Chinese calendar are very 'difficult' kids - difficult in the sense dat they are very naughty kids and not easy to take care of (usually cry babies) but on the brighter side, they are SMART and CLEVER ones (haha, at least there's a consolation).

The above pic of the cake looks big but the the actual size is only a teeny weeny one (heehee). When I bought the cake home and showed her, she said "Eeee, mommy, why so small?"

Yesterday nite Des received her first 'bungalow' on her forehead. She was jumping from one sofa to another and before my maid could warn her, she slipped, went head down first and sommersaulted. A small bump of seen protruding on her forehead. She was wailing her lungs out and complained 'pain pain' every now and then and wanted us to soothe her! We have been warning her not to jump from the sofa. Told her umpteen times dat she will miss her step and fall but she never heeded to our advices and so finally she got her the 'taste' of having a 'bungalow'. I wanted to take snapshot of the 'bungalow' but she refused to allow me and quickly covered the 'bungalow' with her fringes. In a way, dat taught her a lesson. We asked her whether she would like to jump from the sofa or not, she said "No thanks, after I fall, pain pain". I'll wait and see how long she'll take to remember not to jump and forget about the 'pain pain'.

Happy belated bday Des!!!So kesian fell down. Keith fell down fr my bed while he was sleeping last nite. I was arranging some things in my cupboard when I heard a loud "thud". He fell to the floor. He cried so loud an dwas grumpy too coz' he was in pain and his sleep kacau already.

Dear all:
Thank u for ur concern. Des's 'bungalow' had been 'demolished' by constant rubbing ointment on it. It had become a flat space but not without a greenish-blue-black patch. She's back to her usual self. U guessed correct! SHE'S JUMPING ON THE SOFA AGAIN! ..... sigh ..... sigh ..... and sigh ....

Soli, got some of u confused. Destinee's actual birthday falls on the 9th AUGUST (S'pore's National Day - very easy to remember huh?). She'll be 4 this year.

It was quite a big one. It didn't kena her eye but kena her lower lip. Hahaha, u bet, she'll STOP crying IMMEDIATELY if she's offered a sweet or chocolate!

Zara's Mama:
Des's exact birthday is next month on the 9th August (S'pore's National Day). Dat day was her Chinese birthday. She was born on the 1st day (chor yat) of the 7th month in the Chinese calendar and happens dat there are two 7th Chinese months this year, therefore, she has 3 birthdays to celebrate lor. Kekeke.

As for the painting books, I've been searching high and low in other book stores but don't seem to find any. Maybe u can go to MPH and ask for assistance.

Wien was born on the 15th day of the 3rd Chinese month? Heehee, Wien can berjabat tangan with Des lor (cry babies).

Jess and Michelle: The pingu sandals were bought by Elyss from the net. I'll ask Elyss and will get back to u, okay?

Hahaha *shake hands, shake hands* When will they ever learn? Doing such stunts really scare the wits out of us hor?

Heehee, Dat day on the 25th July was 1st day of the 7th month in the Chinese calendar.

Heehee, noticed dat mommy bloggers whose kids are around this age are so active. Hahaha, if u are to show Damien, I think he'll say "why is jie jie so naughty"?

Hahaha, old folks saying only lar. Maybe u are the exceptional naughty one leh? Kekeke.

With or without the cakes, she's still a super duper active one ... sigh ...

Only for this year, she's celeberating 3 birthdays becos of the lunar 7th month in the Chinese Calendar.

I'm sure Ryan will enjoy colouring the books of Paint without Paints. Des really enjoys and I'll allow her to colour 1 page at a time, else she will go all the way to colour the whole book within one nite!

Des will be exactly 4 years old this coming 9th August (heehee).

Hui Sia:
Soli, no size for u lar - only for kids about 4-5 years old (heehee).

At Fri Jul 28, 12:31:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Des always falls from somewhere. She just loves to climb onto the chairs, sofas, bed and even the door grilles. If she cannot reach for something, she'll get herself a stool to climb. If she cannot get down from the place, she'll be shouting for help to get her down ... haiyo .... and dat day was the 1st time she had a 'bungalow'.

Aiyo, Keith oso fell down? So kesian. Just cannot leave the eyes from them for a minute, hor?

At Fri Jul 28, 01:34:00 PM, Blogger Adrian & Alvan said...

Happy Birthday Des!! Big gal already, must listen what daddy mummy say hor!!

At Mon Jul 31, 04:08:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Hahaha, Adrian oso likes to blow candles ar? Next time just buy candles for our kids to let them blow lar hor?

Wah, u pun sudah kembang after ur 2nd attempt to cake making kembang ar? Keep up the good work!

Destinee said:
Thank u, thank u Auntie Rachel for sayanging me.

Shopping mum:
"he can be a real estate agent and get rich if these bangalows are real!" Hahaha, u really made me laugh at ur comment. Poor Justin, he must be a super duper active boy too.

1+2 mom:
Ya lor, just paint with plain water and there'll be colours coming out from the pictures. It's RM6.90 per book. There were two which I bought earlier and they were very much thicker than the ones I just bought. I couldn't find the thicker ones now. Maybe u can enquire from MPH.
