27.02.09 - A fun filled day at the beach

Daddy and mummy went to Sheng Siong to buy bread , biscults , titbits for our outing today! We are going to East Coast Park.

Early at 730am , mummy woke up to make pretty bread for me and kor kor. There were tortoise , penguin and fish shapes make out of ham ,cheese and bread.

Daddy packed kor kor's and mummy's bicycle and our sand tools into the car.

We head for east coast at 9.15am!

We cycled for 1 hour before resting to play sand and water. I am more adventurous when it comes to sand and water as compared to kor kor as he is afraid in getting dirty or wet. So overall , I had more fun. I a a rather self entertain person!

Nice pictures of us. We hardly have family photos as it's either mummy or daddy behind the camera. :(
After playing , kor kor still manage to mae it back to attend school with a power nap of 15 mins. When he came home , he fell asleep at 8pm as it was a super tiring but fun day for us!

21.02.09 - Birdpark ? Zoo ?

Mummy woke up early at 720am to bring us to birdpark as it was a free event from singapore tourism board for the first 2009 people to visit the places advertisted.

We reached there at 8.50am and mummy stopped ka ka and us at the enterance to queue before going to park. There was a parking fee of $2 and then mummy head to find us. At the enterance , we saw some thousands of people and there was a person holding a sign showing that the free tickets are fully redeemed. My god! what time did the first person started to queue?

It's already scary as it was all redeemed at 8am at the flyers too. :(

Mummy tot that we would enjoy the zoo better and we might see Auntie Pris and samuel would be there too , we drove to the zoo instead!

We took photos and we watched the sealion show. We missed out the elephant show and mummy say we should go there the next time we visit the Zoo.

We were beginning to show signs of tireness and so mummy hurried us to the kid's world.

I recharged with milk while kor kor started to play in the water. He had so much fun!

After my milk , I warmed up and played in the water too! So cooling to play in water when the sun was shining so bright!

We rest at the polar bear's place before heading home as it was going to rain. It's started to rain before we reached the car and so mummy went to pick the car and drove to the enterance for us!

On the car , I slept before even exiting the zoo. Kor kor watched the wipers for a while before the whole car was in peace. both babies have fallen asleep! :)

A nice day at the zoo!

After we woke up , It was time for food , memory board game , mazes and worksheets.

Mummy bought some new books for me and kor kor. Yes , I am starting to do some simple mazes , I have yet to understand that i have to follow the arrows , but I love drawing !

Kor kor is getting better at the memory board. He can get 4 pictures right in 3 tries. much better than the previous concerntrating time frame. :) He is showing improvement!
New flash card for me! " Emotions " Baby Edition! wahaha ...

19.02.09 - Swimming Time with Daddy and mummy!

I hate the heat and doesnt like it whenever mummy put on my swimming costume. (Wetsuit) as usual this time I make a big fuss over my clothings and mummy change me into this!

Don't I like good?

We had lots of fun swimming with daddy and mummy .

15.02.09 - Mummy went to A & E

Mummy woke up with numb palms and after bathing .. the numb when to her mouth and tongue. Her head also begin to have terrible pain. Thinking that it was due to bad sleeping position , or slept o a nerve that caused the numbness , she changed and got ready for work.

On the car , the pain continues with feeling of vomitting and giddiness. Daddy say rest and after breakfast with something hot , the pain should go away .

It did not go away and got worse after mummy's hot tea and bread. Mummy called daddy and they went to Raffles Hospital in bugis and was referred to A & E.

After much cheaking ,Doctor say it was Margrain and send mummy home with MC for tomolo. Lots of rest for her.

When she came home , she rest alot and spent most of her time on the bed. The only time she wasnt in bed was to take photo of us having fun when we bath!

Look at our smile!

Kor kor enjoys bathing time alot !

Re : Linking memory

Kor kor is still trying this game. Not really interested

Re : Flash cards

Re : Reading

Kor kor has starting reading a few books a day and 2 or 3 is never enough for him. He would also ask for more. He read to mummy today
1. Help Help
2. Toot Toot

Re : Writing

He is still good n mazes and will ask mummy if he do mazes everyday. His colouring skills has improved but he is still not good with tracing and his alphabet.

Not much done today as mummy was busy doing new flashcards and kor kor was rather cranky from no afternoon nap. He knocked out at 6pm drinking milk. He slept till 10pm , wake up and talk to mummy alittle and went back to sleep.

Mummy is trying not to compare between the two of us as we are both good in different things. But she just wanna see us trying and want us to know , she is also putting in lots of effort.
