Di mahulugan ng karayom

Every Sunday @ Little India...

...where Indian workers convene and catch up with their friends whereas OFW's go to Lucky Plaza @ Orchard to meet their amigas and have their pedicure done.

Chug-ah..chug-ah.., tooth..tooth!!

The pressure is on. We've been trying to teach Kimi several things at the same time. Call us Impatience..but we presume we're already late to catch the train. Hope not.

Now, it's time to introduce toothbrushing to Kimi.

After maaaaaany attempts, we have failed. Kimi really hates the toothbrush. He doesn't like the bristles maybe. He would prefer having his front teeth wiped with a toothpaste-filled cloth. He feels ticklish. Forcing him to open his mouth isn't a good idea either. He will definitely scream and turn away. Otherwise, he'll bite...grrrrr!!


We must save the whales....err..the teeth! Haaay....what to do lah?

Pee, Wee, Poo, Loo

Today, Hubi and I just had an argument on whether to start potty training or not. He insists, I'm passive about it. Well, I take things as they come, i.e. We may usually have clashing ideas but still we come to an agreement. YES! :)

We have the slightest idea on how to start teaching Kimi. Is he ready? Must we force him now? When is the right time? Must we send him immediately to the loo once the urge comes? All the what's, where's, how's, why's and when's begin to emerge. So many questions in mind...

We've started referring to the net. All websites say the same. The only issue now is how would we be able to cope. *sigh* I guess it's me who's at the brink of denial. I'm still treating Kimi like a "baby" whereas he's already a toddler! and ready to ditch the diaper.. :)

I will have to accept the fact. Hubi and I must start training him ASAP. In fact, we already bought a potty trainer for him. We'll see, we'll see..

On the other side of the story, I saw this note posted on the tank over and above a urinal. Over and above because it is a squatting pan. FYI, it's a common thing here and some households still use it. Interesting right?

It says, "Flashing O3, P/S Do not Flash". Hmmmm, flash as in a camera flash? O3 as in Ozone? We realized O3 stands for Out-Of-Order = three O's...gets?

Oops! :) Just sharing something to brighten up your day. :)

"Dilapidation", according to Kimi

Barely 2 hours from the time of purchase, Kimi had torn off 1 blade by biting on it. We secured it with super glue and it worked. After several days, the second blade had fallen off then another. Note than one blade is already missing. We lost it somewhere while strolling around. We were thinking of replacing the blades with cork pad but 'til now we haven't.

Wawa naman the fan =)

Lantern Festival Celebration @ Clarke Quay

moon river birds of the same feather
pagoda-letfloating lantern
quarter to six
3 kings
3 musketeers
dragon tail, dragon tale

It was quite tiring to go around as there were a lot of uzis plus a heavy Kimi on the side. Nothing spectacular really. Just plain ol' bulbs, the mystic reflection on the river and the gigantic umbrella.

Day by day, as we nurture Kimi and watch him grow, I came to realize that being a parent is not an easy job especially for a newbie. It's indeed a test of patience. I have the least reserve however I tend to stretch...and stretchhhhh even more. At times when you're all worn out 'though, his antics serve as the best remedy. He definitely reverses the bad spell.


The world revolves so fast. He's already 14 months and no longer the baby he used to be. He's now a little boy. How I wish I could just freeze time so he won't grow up. ;) He can walk, he can dance, he can eat and do a lot of things by himself. We didn't teach him these. Everything came naturally. You only have to wait for the right time. Of course, you must do your part. A baby won't learn how to walk if you always leave him in the crib and if you don't let him. He will eventually learn and love it.

Each day will always be a new day for the baby and you. A lot of surprises are in store. The only question is..will you be able to witness them all?

For me, so far, the answer is YES. And still looking forward to more. Now, can't wait for him to really talk straight.

Hmmmm...on 2nd thought...I might not have enough answer to satisfy his query.

Ay...wag na lang pala muna madaliin.

One Saturday at Skypark,

Kimi walking...

Kimi standing...

Kimi's way of cooling down...

Kimi crying after pulling him out of the water...

..naputol daw ang kaligayahan :) He's been immersed for quite some time so we decided to leave the place even if it's against his will. He was so cranky til we reached home.

haay.. uulitin na lang.
