I am thinking of buying a portable electric cooker but can’t decide what to get because there are so many different types (halogen, induction, induction ion etc. ) and brands in the market. I am still weighing the pros and cons of the different types, its electricity consumption and price tag. (actually the last two factors are very important to me 😛 )

Care to share your experience with me? What would you recommend and why?

Thanks in advance.


Notes on L

Just going to jot down some quick notes on L’s development.

He can make more sounds now, like papa, mama, keke (哥哥), kaka (car), mum mum etc. He certainly knows what those words mean but he won’t utter it if you asked him to. Just like, if I ask him to call mama, he won’t say a word. He says it when he wants to.

He understands a lot of things/what we say. Pa said there was once he heard the school bus in the evening and said “keke”.  He is very good at pointing with his index finger, at anything he wants. If he sees his brother/sister eating, he will want a share too by pointing at whatever they are eating. 良仔:手指指是我的专长 😛 

He knows the meaning of clap and will do if asked to.

Oh I can finally see his four upper front teeths! Yay! They’ve finally emerged from the gum.

He is showing a lot of interest in the foods we eat. This is so different from last time; after he started solid, he wasn’t very adventurous about foods. He would always turn away if we try to feed him something. Mother says he is scared of people poisoning him. Hah… now is total opposite! He wants to eat everything we eat. 妈说他现在贪吃喽! 

He is not walking yet but can stand up by himself from squat position. He can crawl very well. And to my horror, climb the stairs like an expert even though nobody taught him. Once he climbed up to the middle of the stairs already before I found him; nearly gave me heart attack! Also, he always climb up from his high chair. Actually he fell from his high chair one week before his birthday. My bad. I was very worried the 24hours after the fall. But baby didn’t learn his lesson and continues to climb up from his high chair!! 🙄

One week after his birthday he fell from our bed. Haih! *feel guilty* Had his PD checked him when we went in for his MMR jab one week later. PD says everything is fine. 自此之后,常常提醒自己 从此以后不能让宝宝离开视线以外,很危险。

My boy is kind of  ‘siuk poay’ (惜皮). PD check his knee, elbow and wrist reflexes using the ‘hammer’ (is this the right term?) during the MMR jab appointment. He cried!! 哭到很苦的样子。

妈妈坏!宝宝哭了还酱好笑。 😛





上个周末我们洗澡的时候, 她突然摸我的腹部,问:“宝宝是从这里出来的吧?”


我就答:“是咯!” 因为觉得没有必要很难对一个五岁的娃儿解释正确的答案。其实我也怕她延续问下去,到时候更难解释。





哎! 就算去修身,肚皮都不知能否恢复像以前一样。


女儿:“哦,是呵!我的比较美...” 还好经我这样讲,她是乎也同意了。





Happy Birthday Darling! You will forever be the little baby in our family.

Lots lots love from Papa, Mama, Koko & Cheche.

Kindy Sport Day

Last Saturday was girl’s kindy sports day; the ‘sports’ events are all telematches since the participants are all kindie/nursery kids. It was held inside the building and every child gets to take part in an event.

Let the pictures do the talking.

Girl participating in an event.

I partnered girl in a telematch where the child has to feed the mother mango pudding (those type with nata de coco in it that you get from supermaket). Our team (us with another 5 mother-daughter pair) didn’t win but it was good fun! 🙂

Watching these children in telematches will make you grin at their innocence. They do not seem to understand that they are in a competition; they will attempt to do the task right slowly rather than rushing through. They are not  kiasu at all, haha!  

纵然老师和同学们都会替比赛者加油打气,比赛者们的动作都大多是慢条斯理的。而而且,打气是由老师开始带动,孩子们才开始会喊同学的名字给他们加油。不过,好笑的是,他们可以为不分彼此为敌队打气的喔!真的是纯真可爱到… 😆

They are also very honest in the competition. For example, one of the telematch requires the child to throw a ball in the air and walk and then catch the ball again, from the starting point to the other end. If the ball falls, they will get the ball and go back to the position where the ball fell and start from there. Now  isn’t that cute? I doubt we adults or teens would display this kind of honesty lor… 😛


Award ceremony. (Every child gets a medal because “Everyone is a winner!”)  I missed this because baby pooped and I had to bring him to the car for change.

Here are some photos of the boys after the events ended and everyone retreated to the back of the premise for some snacks.


It’s very difficult to catch baby smiling on camera nowadays. Here’s a lucky shot. 





我叫他:“来,sayang 妈妈!” 岂知他竟然摇头。

我说:“你不要sayang 妈妈啊?” 还是摇头。*哇!妈妈伤心呐!*




接着大家注意看。咦…又是嚄… -_-   都怪妈妈太大意了, 这样都没注意到。对不起啦良仔,妈妈误解了! 😛

Today is baby’s 11th month birthday and he is weaned from breast milk.
