Just recovered from fever

Decided to let Little DinoEgg stay at home even though the fever has not come back since last night. I took leave to take care of him as Granny is not feeling well too.

I know its not right to bring him out but then I just can't stay at home. I always have an urge to bring him out since he seldom goes out shopping. So off we went around lunch time to meet up with Nelly then to Marina Square to meet up with Alice to pass them some things.

Since we have not appetite to eat any decent food, we stopped over at Starbucks where we share a sinful rich chocolate cake *YUMMY!* Little DinoEgg enjoyed it to the max, refusing to share it with me too.

We went home shortly after, dun wanna tired this little fella too much since he is just on his road to recovery.

Still down with fever

Heat monster comes n goes though the temperature is not high. Lucky thing is Little DinoEgg is very active, jumping n running every where thus perspiring n forcing the heat to come out.

Buy me a kite pls~

For the pass weeks I have been talking to May & the gang on going kite flying, it still haven't materialized yet coz everyone is sooooo busy. Whenever we pass by the field at CL LRT there are many people flying their kites, we have pointed out to Little DinoEgg what those are n we are going to fly kites one of these day.

He only see the kites from the car, 1 day we walked pass the playground n saw a daddy fixing up a kite for his son, that's his 1st close up look of the kite.

Just now when I reached home, an excited Little DinoEgg eagerly says to me "Mummy buy kite pls~", I was puzzled, daddy says just now he saw some one flying kite again n wanted one, he told him "Ask mummy to buy for u." Well being so late already, I told Little DinoEgg that we will buy 1 tmr (which I planned to anyway), he was very happy about it... but then 1 min later he totally forgotten about it and was glued to the tv.... kids....

Anyway, lets hope tmr I will be able to buy a kite for him :P

Every night he can't sleep as the pain is excruciating. There are blue-blacks on his soles, when u look at his feet its FLAT... there are no "fleshy meat" on the soles. Its simply FLAT... even the toes are flatten... the pinky toe nails are dead, turning yellow and listless.

Mos Brunch

After our Boogie class, we headed to Isetan Mos to have our brunch. Both of us were famish!

We studied the menu together and when Little DinoEgg saw the hotdog, he pointed to it n says he wants that. This is the first time Little DinoEgg eats a hotdog n he is enjoying it~ However seems that its too much for him as he only managed to finished 3/4 of the dog.

I ordered a set meal which comes with the fries... bad idea! When Little DinoEgg saw the fries he abandon his dog n aimed for them! I was so mad that I confiscated the fries, asked the counter auntie for a doggie bag n threw the fries inside. Told him only after he finishes the dog he can have the fries. The counter auntie also join me, say only she has the key to the doggie bag, she will unlock the bag AFTER he finishes the dog. hahaha~ and Little DinoEgg sat down n start munching on the dog.

As usual, being his cheeky self, he could not sit still on the chair to eat the dog. He just have to stand on the chair to jump, shake, make monkey faces, dance etc while demanding me to take his photos! When I put down my camera, he gave me a serious look n say "Mummy, take camera, take picture!" *duhz*

After a while, he gets bored n starts to disturb the uncle sitting back to back against him. 1st he play peekaboo with him, then make funny faces at him, when uncle n auntie leaving he said bye n smile sweetly at them. We then continue our lunch when about 10mins later the uncle came back~ with a star shaped sweet for this little fella. I was so surprised! I guess Little DinoEgg has made him very happy n he wanted to give him something :D Try to see the star shaped sweet in the photos below. Little DinoEgg thought it was a wand (I did not tell him its actually sweet lest he wants to eat it), he waved the wand and said the magic words "Magic magic chocolate~", wonder where he learnt that, most likely in school.

We headed home for a good rest after our enjoyable brunch. I think it will be tiring Saturdays for us from now on. *YAWN*

I'm a Boogie Bug - officially~

Today I made payment for the semester, so Little DinoEgg is officially a Boogie Bug Bug~

I am very certain that I will not regret getting Little DinoEgg into the class. I can see that he truly enjoys the class, even shout out his answer when Uncle Mark asks the kids whats inside the magic bag. And hey! I enjoyed the class too! Singing n dancing n boogie boogie, its a form of R&R for me too. On top of that I hope to burn some fats from all those jumping n dancing hehehe~ Ok ok now I weigh 59kg, can I go down 2kg in the next 3 weeks?? ^^ I hope so~~~

However I feel that the other parents are not participating enough. Singing - Yes, doing the actions - errmmm Yes, a couple of them, getting up n BOOGIE - NO!

Sometimes I feel so awkward when I boogie my way with the kids... kinda silly too... but then I still do, but lesser big actions hehhee~

ToyBox - "Enlightenment"

Since I started to mention about ToyBox and how I like it, some of my friends asked me what the whole class is about. Although I feel strongly towards it I could not find the exact words except telling them "its just a class where the kids go there sing song, dance n play some noise makers". Its not a fair comment coz it just tell the other party that "its simply another play group", but I swear that it is not.

After pondering n wondering for the passed weeks, I finally got the answer. Its the way Reuben & Mark conduct the classes.

They do it with PASSION, ENTHUSIATIC & ENERGY, not forgetting that they simply adores children. From the way they interact with the kids you can see it, their eyes sparkles when they interact with them.

As compare to those other same kind of classes, some of the teachers does the classes in a somewhat monotonous, not-too-friendly manner. To them its just "my job", so long they do all the necessary for the class they are ok.

Anyway, another point about Reuben & Mark, they sing n Mark play the guitar throughout the whole hour (can u imagine doing that from 9am till 2-3pm just on a Saturday), no vcd playing from the player; except during the start of the class n toward the end of the class where the children shakes/rattle the musical noise makers n boogie their way. Hey thus their name The Boogie Bug (^^)

1st attempt with the chopsticks

This afternoon went to 7th aunt's house for a lou hei. After 7th aunt pour all the ingredients into a big plate we gather around the dinning table to start the lou hei. Little DinoEgg also joined in, Grandpa let him stand on the dinning chair to see all our action but when 7th aunt hand out the chopsticks he also wanna have a pair. Grandpa showed him how to use, he just imitate but think the placement of the fingers and the strength to use is not there. Anyway he joined in too, with his chopsticks criss-crossed n 1 long 1 short hahaha~

After all the stirring exercise to mix all the ingredients together we started to eat the stuffs, Grandpa tried to show Little DinoEgg how to use the chopstick to get a piece of the crispst up. He watched Grandpa with full attention, then he tried to get it himself. He did not succeed at his first try, but he did not give up. Eyes glued to the crisps, criss-crossed chopstick on hand, he tried n tried. Everyone at the table was watching him, mesmerised by his determined look. Finally he is able to pick up that crisps with the chopstick, pop it into his mouth n gave every one a satisfied n proud smile, everyone cheered him.

Soon, the training chopstick will be put to use.

Buffet @ Sis'

We hopped over to Sis' ILs house after Athan's baby shower. Every year they will have a buffet at the end of the CNY to celebrate uncle's birthday.

We reached the place at 9pm, the party is nearing the end *ooppsss* but its ok, we came late as I mixed up the time for Athan's party *sorry sis* We helped ourselves with the food and also the special cabbage soup that uncle cook. We chatted and the kids play (fighting for toys too lah of course). Daddy even drank a glass or two of the red wine. I dun dare to touch lest I feel sleepy straight after I drank that.

We left shortly after as it was getting late and we are tored after a days running here n there.

Athan's Baby Shower

Graphics - @
New born baby! We love new born babies!

Received Alex & Amanda's Playhouse Disney invitation card couple of weeks ago, so excited! Its been quite a while we attend baby showers. I remembered the wrong time; its suppose to be for dinner, I thought its for lunch, luckily I took a look at the invitation card yesterday.

We arrived slightly after 7pm mingle a while then we started to have our food. Hahaha~ abit embarassing ya but coz we need to rush off some where so we thought we start first instead of waiting for the rest to arrive, on top of that Little DinoEgg did not have his lunch so he is very hungry. Kids stomach rules! :P

Had a great time chatting n gossiping with the gang, then Bec took out some fire sparks (dunno what its call) n the kids went wild with it. Too bad Bel was not there, she had a tiring day n Wendy decided not to bring her along.

I managed to carry Baby Athan, saw him earlier but the confinement lady was carry him so I did not "snatch" him from her. He is such a darling; chubby cheeks and everything. However I carried him for a little while and he cried... haha~ I dun have "the mother's smell", actually its his milk milk time ^^

We left shortly after for sister's house.

Praying to Tai Sui

We are all under the "offenders" list of Tai Sui 2009 *sob sob* so we have to pay respect to him and offer some offerings to appease his displeasure at us and to ask for blessings for the whole year.

Since SIL is also born in the year of OX, she is also affected. We arranged to meet up at RV to go down to the temple together. At 9am+ we met up and made our way down Seng Ong Temple to pray Tai Sui. We were consider late as the praying sessions start as early as 7am. There not alot of pple n we managed to get into 1 of the sessions pretty fast.

Wow, this year the temple is so well organised. They have a section where u take a queue number so have ur name, date of birth etc written on this yellow piece of paper. Next to this section is where u can buy the papers for blessing n after that burning to offer to Tai Sui. No more walking around the temple aimlessly n wondering which side to go etc. Thumbs up for the temple!

After the ritual me n SIL walked around with Little DinoEgg while the guys pray to the other gods. We saw the Fortune God and decided to pray to him, its been foreseen to be a bad year this year, we need all the help we can to survive it right ^^ We went around the temple and the laid our hands various things they put all over the temple that will give us prosperity for the new year. They even have a section where they show the 12 Chinese zodic signs with their individual fortune for the new year.

While we were reading the details, Little DinoEgg was standing not fare fm us watching two 6 & 7 yrs old boys climbing up and down the stage n playing with the fortune horse. The 6 yr old saw him looking at them, came up to him n did a cat claw at his face. I saw and kept my cool until the boy called out to his older brother and say do the cat claw again. I stood forward and asked him sternly "What are you trying to do?!" He got a shock, froze on the spot and look at me guiltily. I gave him a hard stare then led Little DinoEgg away.

*sigh* Whats with the kids these day! Bullying younger kids when the opportunity arises? Where are all the discipline! *sigh again*

We have to come back before end of 2009 to pray to Tai Sui again for protecting us during the year *Must remember to do that... think I shld write it down somewhere*

More about Ox year 2009 over here.

Whats that you say?

When ever Little DinoEgg refuse to do/eat something he will say "I don't want!" very loudly. Surprisingly today when I was feeding him dinner he suddenly blurt out "Mummy, no thanks~ I have finished already."

I couldn't catch what he said, try to give him 1 spoonful of food, he repeated "No thanks~" then shake his head n give me a sweet smile. Then I realised he was telling me he had his filled already. Just to make sure he is not playing punks I asked him again if he want some more rice, he said "No thanks~" sweetly again. After I said ok, he ran off to play with his toys.

Sometimes he will say "later later" if he does not want to eat/drink something or when he does not want to take his bath *HAIYO!*

WOW~ No more shouting of the words I DUN WANT! any more~

Tai Sui of Lunar Year of Ox 2009

Tai Sui (simplified Chinese: 太岁; traditional Chinese: 太歲; pinyin: Tàisuì) refers to stars directly opposite of Jupiter. They influence the Chinese zodiac, and are also a theory in religious Taoism and Feng Shui.

Tai Sui General (甲子太岁金辨大将军)In the Chinese zodiac, there are sixty heavenly generals who assist the Jade Emperor in taking charge of the well-being of the Mortal World. Each of them takes turn to be in charge for a year. Due to most of them having a military background, they are normally known as the Military Generals, or as the Cycle Gods. Each of their features and weapons signifies the well-being of that year. For example, if the Tai Sui of the year is one who holds a pen, it signifies political unrest for that particular year. On the other hand, if the Tai Sui of the year holds a spear or sword it signifies the need to work hard and excel for that year.

For 2009 : Yin Brown Erath Ox Year (Yin Brown Earth Bull Year or Yin Brown Buffalo Year or Yin Brown Earth Cow Year) - Lunar Year : 26.01.2009 to 13.02.2010, Fu Ming You (or Pang You) is the Tai Sui and he is situated at North East. Do not install any moving objects like Fish Aquariums or Water Fountains in North East, this year. Do not dig, construct, renovate, redecorate or refurnish or repair in North East this year. Do not drill or even drive a nail in the North East wall. Do not shift or relocate to North East, this year. Do not chop trees, if they are in the North East.

In Taoism, those whose Chinese Zodiac is offended, or by their sign conflict or clashes with the Tai Sui of the year are advised to go through a prayer session with a Taoist Priest to ask for blessing in obtaining Peace and Good Fortune throughout the year. Talismans thought to protect again Tai Sui are sold in many areas.

In 2009 the zodiacs that are in disagreement with the Tai Sui are the ox, dragon, horse, sheep and dog. They are also strictly prohibited from attending funeral, burial ceremony and visiting the sick.
