weekend retreat

last weekend, we check-in to our kay-el holiday with a grand view of the twin towers and kay-el tower. baby loves to look out the big windows and enjoy the view.

thanks to our membership cards.

we upgraded ourselves to the club floor so that we can eat for "free" - that's the sale gimmick, coz there's really no free lunch in this world. but being gullible holiday makers we bought into their sweet talk and ended up eating on the 38th floor. the view was great and was swarmed by "gwai-los". erika kept asking why got so many "gwai-los"? we gotta hush her up before parrot elli repeats in an ever louder voice.

back to room, found a huge weighing machine - for people with "ol flower eyes"

so step on it...52kg...me gotta eat summore...must maintain all the curves.

elli's turn - 18 kg...aiyooo no wonder my back is breaking la

erika - 22 kg onli after stuffing her with so much food, gotta send her to more buffet

then daddy's turn....aiyoooo so much ah?? gotta go on a strick diet ledi lor!

the fun part - playing in the lavish bathrooms with all the beautiful gold-plated bathroom accessories.

the girls had a blast, swimming in the tub and not the pool. tub better, warm waters and loads of bubbles, safer too. they played washing "clothes" and the "clothes" was the shower cap.

of cos they flooded the bathroom but no sweat la...the cleaners will take care of it, and also free flow of soft white towels to keep the floors slip-free. i know not very environmental friendly - but once in a long time only they get to waste so much .

after wrinkled up in the tub, erika then eye the only toy (iron & board) in the room. and she has been playing it non-stop. we went home with crisp ironed clothings....she loved this holiday. next time i just bring an iron to occupy her, even the big flatscreen telly was not captivating enuff.

at nite, daddy drove us round the corner to the best nasi-lemak stall in town - nasi lemak antarabangsa. even the girls enjoyed the fluffy aromatic santan rice...after eating that only happy to go to bed.

next morning, went for breakie, i think we drank at least 12 big glasses of fresh juices among the 4 of us...of cos went jamban a lot after tat.

time to check out - the girls kept begging to stay longer, but back to reality la...

old flower eyes

i better record this before i go "blind"

when i first heard the phrase, i was wondering too...what is this "old flower eyes". turns out its a direct translation from a cantonese saying "lo fah ngan"

and i can honestly tell you that if an object goes beyond a certain viewing distance, i can actually see it getting "blurrry flowerrry" too...sad or what?? not even the best eye cream can save me now.

arrggghhh why is it happening so early...u think if i gobble down loads of fish and tons of wolfberries (kei chee) now, will my eyes go back to its original twinking self?

i dun mind to be a flower, dun mind being an old flower too...but please dun give me ol' flower eyes....pleeezzzeeeee

sleeping thru the nite

i wish i can proudly proclaim the title of this post. but unfortunately my girls are not good sleepers. they think nite time naps are just like noon time naps, where you sleep for an hour or 2 then get up to PLAY!!!

so if you have a chat with me, and sometime i look "blank" or "too quiet" or "unresponsive", you should take note that my mind has just taken a snooze. the art of sleeping with my eyes open - have been a perfected art since schooling days. hahahaha

lady in red

mommy likes to dress me up. i am just like a lil' chubby doll for her to play. mommy love to take pictures of me ~ making me pose - sitting on our new red bean bag chair (what a clash of colours with my pink top!).

i think i took my first wibbly wobbly steps on Feb 5, just a little over my ninth month mark. only 2 - 3 tiny steps. mommy is so excited she can't wait to put on "real" shoes for me. bye bye to my crawling days?? see i look like i am dancing.

finally i can feel a little tooth bud piercing out of my lower gum...hmmmm time for more "solid" food.

look i am so tall i can pull myself up the piano, stretch out my arms and start making noise music!

my new past time - sucking my yummy toe!

she nose it

yes baby nose it...just like bill clinton. hahahaha

i have been teaching baby to name her nose and ears. playing the point and name game for 2 days and now she "nose" it. when i ask her nose?? she will point with her index finger to the right feature on my face.

is my baby a genius or not? one proud "nose it" mama talking here.

she's also babbling a lot and can blurt out pa-pa, ma-ma occasionally. she's so big that she can fit into both her sister's tops without looking sloppy. baby's hair still not there yet but thankfully "nose it" mama's hair is growing back to it's normal crowning glory after a crazy hormonal period of thinning hair.
