Tesco emergency button

You know those emergency buttons at carparks?

Button? What button?

Ever wonder if they really work?

Oh, you mean THAT button. Teeheehee

Pass to SE to tell what happened...

SE:  Jo-Jo prehh the button at Teh-co. Then, NEE NOR NEE NOR NEE NOR...

Which sums up what happened!  These 3 actions happened within 2 seconds:

1. JE saw the button.
2. Asked, "What's this button"
3. *Press*.

So yes, the button does work.  The sound is very loud.  And doesn't stop.  Needless to say, I got out of there as quickly as I could.  :)

No 'S'-es

SE can say some 'S' especially if it's at the beginning of a word.  Like her name. Otherwise the 'S' will be replaced by an emphatic 'H' sound, or will be missing entirely.

1. Hoh = Horse
2. Dah-bin = Dustbin
3. Noh = Nose
4. Fah = Fast
5. No white = Snow White
6. Be-coh = Because

Some 'P's are pronounced 'F' instead.

1. Fuay = Play
2. Fuin = Prince
4. Fuin-sare = Princess

Fine, if you're not a fan of my speech, I just won't talk

Wonder when she will say these correctly!

Another word she says is Blank-klet for 'blanket'.  Cute, for now.  :)

No reader yet

JE doesn't read well yet.  I was initially pleased with her progress after half a year at kindy. Well but that was from zero to 'something'... from 'something' to 'something better' isn't as fast. :)

Reading sessions usually end in exasperation (mine) and tears (hers).  A month ago she cried out, "I don't know how to READ! I am still very SMALL!"  Hehehe.  Poor lil kid!

She's getting better though.  I can read WITH her now, as opposed to reading TO her.  I point to words she is supposed to know for her to read aloud and I read out the harder ones.

Wait Su Ern, I read this first

One step at a time.

Ah Mah's birthday 2015

Celebrated at Oversea restaurant in PJ.  It's always nice to enjoy a meal out as a family.  This shall be our last time here though - food didn't taste good nor was it cheap.  Luckily environment was okay - quiet enough since, well, there weren't many customers!

Sis made a good cake this time. :)

Blow out the candles, Ah Mah!

Took a picture with everyone in this time.

Say cheeese....

  Happy birthday to my dear mother!

Gelato followers

Went to 1u yesterday since it was a public holiday.  Well actually it was to collect a Lego set for myself hehe.  Hubby offered me an anniversary present (we don't normally buy each other presents. Both of us are fussy so we might as well just buy ourselves what we want!)  And suddenly someone posted up for sale a retired set that I had been eyeing.  It had a higher price tag than any of my other sets.  But since it was to be my present... GRAB.  Heh heh.  OK I did consider and think a while.

Then I went into Toys r Us to molest some more Lego.  Hubby got bored and went to buy some gelato. Suddenly there were a couple of interested parties...


Mmmm. Yummy

The interested parties quickly become followers...

More, more!


The littlest follower would be waiting with mouth open...


Come, come to me

Hubby had to entertain his fans until gelato was finished.

OK finish already. Shoo

OK no more. Shoo

Half gone now...

My popped corn is always way smaller than the commercial ones. Oh well.

High Places

Since the arrival of the kiddos, some objects at the house had to move.  Objects which are sharp, important, small or which could cause a mess in their hands etc.  Unfortunately my kids are those who are pretty nosy. Somehow they get to most of these!  This corner in the pic below is supposed to be for adults' stuff...

Now this looks like a nice pen. They also keep scissors here

Yep, sometimes she does get a pen and draw all over the place!  The more important things are kept high though, out of reach for the kiddos... hey what's this one doing?


Wow! Treasures!

I give up lah. We do have drawers of mainly documents that they're not interested in. Other things... it's share-share!

Buckle up

JE's kindy is 5 minutes from our house.  Distance wasn't a major factor in our selection, but now I'm so glad we picked the nearest one!  I just need to make a tiny detour every morning on the way to work. Then I stop the car and open the door for JE to get down... eh what's this?

We are safely belted up!

OK 5 mins is obviously enough for her to belt up.  So I need to unbuckle human and non-human passengers before being able to unload.

Never mind, I can get used to the routine. Another day... hey, what's that in the middle seat?

Oh, this? Let me move the belt aside...

Ta-dahh! My salted lemon sweet

Some days she's lying flat across the whole back seat. Kids. :)

The small one normally doesn't cooperate when I'm trying to take photos of her.  She will just turn a deaf ear to my cries of "Su Ern, look here! Su Ern! Look at the camera! Su ERNN!!"

But once in a while, she actually voluntarily poses. As in do the pose AND then hold it to give me time to click the shutter.  :)

Peep out!

Hel-llo there! 

Big smile!

Look at the sky

And this coy look is my favourite:


Such a sweetie, heh.
