Singapore Zoological Gardens

Daddy and Mummy brought me to a place called "the zoo" last Saturday. They were worried that the trip had to be cancelled as it was raining in the morning but luckily the rain subsided at around 10am. So off we went to the zoo!
We were supposed to meet Uncle Richard, Aunty Lyn and Kieron-kor kor at the zoo but they were a bit held back. So we had breakfast at a place called KFC (or rather Daddy and Mummy cos I had 'non-KFC' milk). YOu know, I'm beginning to be interested in what Daddy and Mummy are eating nowadays cos my mouth keeps drooling everytime I see them eat their food. Perhaps I'd be ready for solids soon huh?
After my breakfast, I felt the urge to poop. Haha poor Daddy's on poo poo duty again! One thing I do not like about the zoo is the toilet for babies. Adults have nice open air concept toilets. We babies also have open air toilets, only problem it is only a plastic changing table! I'm going to write in when I master my ABCs... After doing my business, we had some time to spare before Uncle Richard, Aunty Lyn and Kieron-kor kor arrived so we took some photos. I'm not sure why Mummy insisted on taking pictures with this fake cow cos it looks so silly!

Uncle Richard, Aunty Lyn and Kieron-kor kor arrived soon after that. As we walked through the entrance to the zoo, we saw some little ponies. They looked so cute that I thought of taking some of their mane as a souvenir but you know the rules in the zoo lah. After the encounter with the ponies, the Z-Monster sneaked an attack on me. I tried to fight, but you know how it is between me and the Z-Monster lah. I lost and I fell asleep. Silly Daddy and Mummy then took the opportunity to make fun of me! Hmph!

I like tigers. Too bad I was still asleep when we reached the tiger enclosure so Daddy and Mummy took some photos for me. After I woke up, Mummy put me into a baby carrier like a little joey. See, we're "home" ;P

We saw many other animals after that, like elephants, polar bears and giraffes. Although we were beat at the end of the day, we really enjoyed the time at the zoo. I even overheard Daddy and Mummy saying that they wanted to bring me to the Bird Park soon. Yipee!!

Little Events That Shape Our Lives...

We don't usually pay attention to the little things in our lives. Like how squeezing every last ounce of toothpaste from the tube can save you, what, 1 tube of toothpaste a year! Ok exaggeration aside, let me tell you about the little things that happened recently.

1 month ago, in mid Sep, Mummy sent Daddy and excited sms telling him how I held my own bottle and kicked her hands away when she tried to help me hold the bottle. 2 months of perseverence and brushing criticism of a kiasu mummy has finally paid off! Look at all the different bottle-holding stances I am capable of ;)

And then there is the $199 teething toy that Mummy insisted Daddy bought (poor Daddy had to lug the heavy thing on a rainy day). TA-DA! Doesn't it just look yummy? It doesn't? Come taste it and you shall see what I mean.

Oh yeah, on Children's Day, I learnt how to flip onto my tummy. I twisted and turned and *BOOMP*, there I was. Staring down on everything less than 10cm tall! Bow down to me!!! In case you're curious, I just learnt to flip back from my tummy to my back on the Sunday that just passed. So clever right? But what does Mummy mean when she says I flip like a headless piglet? Hmm... Oh but please do not tell anyone that I can only flip for my left side - I haven't a clue how to flip from the right yet ;P

After the swimming session at Swissotel, Daddy and Mummy decided to bring me to swim at Gong Gong and Por Por's condo. It was a massive project. The camera, videocam, bathtub, 2 big bags - 1 for the swimming stuff and another for my personal stuff... Phew, I get tired just seeing them carry those things into the car! Poor little me got some scratches when Starlight wanted to 'dig' into my diapers. It was so painful that I cried :( Some evidence below

We visited Baby Kiev after my swim. He looked so different from the last I saw him! He's almost as tall as me now. I'd better do more jumping-jacks. And yes, we 2 babies have new nicknames: I'm the greedy pig while Kiev is the sleepy pig! Haha. Daddy and Mummy say Kiev is such as good boy compared to me. I think that's because Kiev doesn't fuss during adult mealtimes. But I'm going to teach my little bro some tricks when we get together again. Hiak hiak hiak (Uncle Cecil and Aunty Fern, I didn't write this k, Daddy did!)..
Daddy promised me a toy after the Swissotel stay. And so he came home 1 day with this green little thing in his hands. "Mr Green"! He's not too much to look at, but my, frog legs sure are tasty :D
Finally, Daddy borrowed a bumbo seat from Uncle Soo Chiau. Bumbo-what? It's this green little thing that you put babies in. Supposed to be good for our posture. I can do some catwalk after sitting in them bumbo seat!

6 Oct

6 Oct is my Daddy's birthday! Just imagine, 29 years ago, he was a little baby just like me! Mummy usually gives Daddy various surprises on his birthday. I wonder how she'd outdo herself this time round?

The day started at IKEA Tampines - we had to get some furniture for Sok Sok's room. So we spent about 2 hours there. It was uneventful enough. We took, we paid and arranged for the delivery.

After that, on the pretext that she was going to meet someone to sell the Pigeon steriliser, Mummy made Daddy drive us all the way to Raffles City. Oh boy was he in for a surprise. At Raffles City, she made Daddy open up his Deuter bag that was full of clothes etc. *huh* He was confused. We're staying in a hotel tonight you silly Daddy! Hee hee. See, I told you Mummy was good.

It was a comfortable hotel - Swissotel ok. Here's pictures of us "frolicking" on the huge king-size bed ;P

We had so much fun exploring the big hotel room. There are even 2 balconies - 1 overlooking the hotel swimming and the other facing Suntec City!

Later that night, Mummy had another surprise up her sleeve - she invited Uncle Lee Hong and Aunty Pei Pei over for a mini-party! Look at all the yummy food! Daddy, Mummy, Uncle Lee Hong and Aunty Pei Pei did lots of catching up (e.g. on their wedding plans :P), while I drooled over all the food!
The next morning, I was decked out in this funny suit and brought out to this place with a lot of water... What's going on?!
Turns out that Daddy and Mummy are bringing me to 'swim'. To me the term 'play water' would have been more appropriate but who cares when you're having fun eh?
And if you think that was the end of Mummy's surprises, SURPRISE! Ye Ye, Nai Nai and Sok Sok suddenly showed up at our door! Family party!
