Getting more and more in my album ! Stay tune, still many more to come…(hello kitty stuff, LV bag, Chanel WOC, Burberry, playpen, sterilizer, kid’s clothes…)
Change for the sake of changing, simply with no reason. If I have to think of a reason or two, then it is because my Birthday is just around the corner. *lame* Ben couldn’t stand my old phone camera quality. He insisted to spend money, he insisted to get it changed. But, he didn’t want me to get a fruit phone, he said it indirectly, I’ve made an effort to read up reviews and compare S4. Okay, let’s just conclude that I’m just
plain lazy unadventurous, I blog using WordPress apps on iPhone and I’ve tried it on android and windows phones. *shake head* nothing beats this. The rest of the apps are almost the same, I know many say after using (new phone) for some time, everyone gets use to it. *this is my 7th iPhone, damn hard to change*
When comes to “No-Mess Art & Craft”, I will not say no !
Here we have no-mess finger art on a wonderful Wednesday.
All you need are :
- ziplock bag
- baby oil, I used olive oil
Pour generous amount of paints and some oil into the bag and lock it.
See how happy he was when he came back seeing the paints on table! I asked him to smile on camera and this was what I got. *can’t stop laughing*
Use fingers to rub it, squeeze it, pat it…
Fun or not? Of course !
Asher said this to me once. I can’t quite remember when, should be last week. I didn’t take it to heart, I thought he was just involved in some kiddo fight among his classmates, probably too small case as no one, I mean, no teacher mentioned a thing to me.
Today, I went to pick Asher after his enrichment class and before we left, I heard someone calling Asher. I turned around, it was a boy, likely to be in K2, tall and fair. There was no expression on his face, not those friendly type who call out friends, wave and say goodbye. (He just called his name for fun and stared hard at him, there wasn’t any boy around except him) At first I thought he just knows Asher in the enrichment class. I prompted Asher that his friend was calling him and I told him to say goodbye to his friend.
“He always beat me.” I thought I heard him wrongly. Asher refused to say goodbye and I think the boy heard me. I looked at the boy, he then said,”Goodbye, Asher.” (in complete monotone.)
Honestly, I don’t feel good at all. I am pretty sure Asher is telling me the truth. For so long, he doesn’t really share with me what he does or what he learns in school. That explains why it doesn’t matter whatever his answers are whenever I ask him about school. But this is the first time he complains about being beaten up by an older kid. I can understand and I will not make a big hoohaa if the “bully” is his classmate as I know, nursery children are mostly innocent and forgiving. In fact, I know my boy is also not 省油的灯, meaning he will not just keep quiet and got bullied/pushed, he talks back like nobody business. Daddy mentioned again in the evening, as we wanted to know what exactly happened.
We found out
-they are in same enrichment class on Monday as Asher mentioned “do our own drawing”.
- he hits Asher on his head and body
- they sit next to each other as he said “we sit together because no more seat”
I can tell the daddy is heartbroken too when Asher was trying his best to tell us what happened. I’m fuming as I recalled how the boy “trying to provoke” even when I, the mother was there with Asher. Once I get hold of his name and class, I’m going to call the in-charge from Oistein’s art to find out more and inform the principle. I do hope this is just a misunderstanding but I don’t think Asher is so good that by 3.5yo, he can make up story like this.
Even though I’m a mother myself, for this day, we still choose to go for our mother’s favourite food – Beef & Salmon Sashimi.
Watami, serves pretty nice shabu shabu. The food are generally not bad but this branch at the north has plenty of room for improvement in term of services. We ordered a simple set and other ala carte dishes.
Free flow soup base, we kept ordering udon too. Besides, mom loved the beef and we got to grill on the hot pan provided. I almost used it to fry egg. LoL !! Glad that everyone enjoyed the food, we will try japanese shabu shabu at another restaurant on next month.
This year, we did not buy flower as mother’s day gift but something essential or her – iclebo, the robotic vacuum cleaner. Now mom doesn’t need to sweep the house while the rest at work.
Honestly, I want it too! Ben is willing to get me one but I thought, maybe I won’t need it if we move out of this 1550sqft unit. Let’s see how…
Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day to all moms !
The first time I met Jurek, he was around 2.5yo. Energetic and super boyish but a little bit shy. Today, Jurek turns 6. He has not changed much except becoming more handsome !
Located just next to Farrer Park mrt station, Mommy Elda has transformed the venue into a mini arcade. Just in case you are wondering, the birthday theme is Animal Kaiser Tournament.
You can see some kids are helping Jurek to save the world by killing the devils . LoL !!
The older kids had so much with these machines.
Of course the younger ones know where to have fun too.
That’s right! It’s the playground ! From the beginning I saw these 2 guys running after each other, actually most of the time Asher was the one running after Sidney. As usual, my boy wants to make friends, found playmate but doesn’t know how to “maintain”, Asher kept throwing things at Sidney, he complained, I stepped in to facilitate and then left them to play, with close observation of course, I did not want anyone to get hurt. Love Sidney to bits, he is so forgiving (so are his parents) and Asher was given chances to learn how to play with others. I believe if your kids came back telling you,”he keep throwing things on my face.” You will most likely get your son out of the place so that no one can “bully” him, confront the parents and worst, shout at the bully. Yeah, a little hiccup happened as there were other residents at the playground but was there a need to scold a 3yo boy? We are the parents and we were there, we knew what happened and leave the discipline part for us.
Uber cute Sidney (3y11mo) and my mischievous Asher, happily posing for camera.
The matching theme, customised birthday cake for Jurek.
Probably the only reason to stop playing game – cake cutting. LoL!! Super engrossed with it. Believe it or not, this is my first time singing birthday song with the candles unlit. All guests are non smoker and we couldn’t find any lighters, not even from passer by. Nevertheless, everyone sang the birthday sings in 3 different languages and Jurek thanked everyone for celebrating his day with him.
Again, we thanked Jurek and Elda for inviting us, we had a great time, great food (pastamania catering) and the kids enjoyed themselves. Now staying at just a stone’s throw away from botanical garden, maybe we shall meet up often and let the kids run wild at the park. We are really happy for them on their new nest, nice environment and perfect location *on hunting mode* I also want to stay here! But Ben doesn’t want it.
” L O V E , I love you and you love me…”
Asher has been singing this song with all action to show L O V E using both arms and leg and drawing LOVE in the air. Thanks to High 5 !
Asher came home with necklace and hand puppets from EK, he was showing off, telling me he made them for me only.*melt* When I asked for “love” from him, he picked up crayons and started to draw and write…
