Many, many updates...

Before the end of Chap Goh Meh (the 15th day of Chinese New Year), must update the blog!

Mummy lost count of how many things or incidents to be jotted down and blog about En En and Zheng. Well, about mummy too...

Too many things happen before, during and after Chinese New Year. Mummy just not so determine like last time to blog so often. Oh yeah... one of mummy's THIS YEAR resolution is to blog more... hopefully able to get there.

Let's start with En En

En En is now no longer the shy and timid little girl we once used to know. Ever since she goes to nursery schoBoldol, she is now talking louder and clearer, mix well with her peers, responding well to questions we throw to her and also reasoning.

She is VERY INTERESTED in ANIMALS! PHDC programme from Astro no longer her favourite and guess what's her favourite channel?? ANIMAL PLANET! No.556... gosh... She LOVES documentary film! Well, it's good that she's learning alot from the animal world.

Health & Diet
But, still a very terrible picky eater and of lately we notice she will vomit out her food if she feels pressure from us scolding her or raise up the voice tone when talking to her. She seems weak after attending school... probably due to lung allergy too. Gosh, my girl been confirmed having allergy and from our monitoring for the past 8 months, she has reaction towards room temperature changes.

The other problem is and still is CONSTIPATION! She refuses vegetables and fruits, that's the major culprit. We are still trying to give her variety of food selection but she's not even interested to taste them. *Sigh*


Started trying to wean 3 days before CNY, but only wean him off McB for afternoon nap! It's so terrible and difficult as Zheng is a very strong will boy. He is the type that you don't give me nen-nen, I don't want to sleep! On top of that, he cried non-stop for 1 hour with annoying screaming and cursing in his own words that only God knows!

Some methods used to wean him off from direct feeding:-


- Mummy tried to substitute direct feeding by expressed breast milk in milk bottle. Guess what?He threw the bottle back to us!
- Then we tried to carry him in arms to calm him down and he hit us so hard with his little strong palm!
- Already passed his napping time, he got even fierce and angry... he insisted to have McB! Mummy never give in, therefore must be very determine, no means NO! Poor little fella kept on crying and screaming. Mummy offered other drinks and food to make him forget about McB.


- Feed him full with solid food before nap.
- Never drag his naptime pass 5/6 hours from his previous sleep time.
- Quiet envinroment and no playing with En En before nap. (Yes, they will get crazy when playing together)
- Insist him to sleep on tummy while patting his back.

If all the above successful, Zheng in fact will go into his dreamland in less than 10 minutes! Really a blissful moment for mummy... LOL!


1) "Open the door!" Even ask mummy to Open clothes for nen-nen *roll eyes*

2) Able to call everyone in the family including close family members from daddy's and mummy's side... eg. Gong Gong, Po Po, Yi Yee (mum's sisters), Jiu Jiu (mum's brother). He is able to mimic almost every sound we told him for almost 80-90% accurate on pronunciation!

3) "Bei1" (in mandarin means Cup)

4) "Xi1 jou" ( in mandarin means Wash hand)

5) "tuok tuok" (supposed to be zhou4, means Sit)

Motor Skills

Since 14 months old...
- Able to put his arm through the shirt when mummy is wearing him a shirt
- Able to hold on mummy when wearing pants while lifting his legs one by one at the same time.
- Able to throw ball from above head
- Able to lift up daddy's laptop that weigh 3kg with both his hands! A Strong baby...
- Able to walk up and down the staircase with one hand leaning on the wall
- Able to use cup or small bucket to pour out water into another one ( well, in the bathroom...)
- Able to hold a pencil or pen and draw on a paper... JUST TO ADD - When En & Zheng having pen or pencil in their hands and no adults in the room, they made their master piece ON THE WALL!


- Put on 2kg within 1 week of CNY... blame it on the cookies and non-stop feasting...
- Rejected the job offer
- Confirmed on job with music center
- Started a mini customizable handicraft online business (so far only 1 customer... haha!)
- Still hook on Farmville! Bad mummy, bad mummy,...

Mummy received a job interview call last week for the position of a purchaser. Was quite surprise since the application was about 2 years ago, before having Zheng.

Went for the interview yesterday and was unable whether to go back to the workforce after knowing that already been shortlisted. A huge commitment and sacrifice must make for the job and then feel so heavy to leave my little ones again. On the other hands, mummy already contacted back the music center to start a part time job which gradually will turn into full time. Headache!!!

So, the decision? Still uncertain... there are pros and cons ... must think carefully tonight... Another sleepless night...

My first pair of shoes!

Looks like "kar-kiak" (in hokkien dialect, is an old wooden shoes wore by traditional chinese ladies) to us but it's En En first pair of "high-heels"! Eww... 4 years old on high heels doesn't sounds nice to mummy though...

Well, she chose this pair of shoes on her own and insisted daddy to buy for her without looking at other. Ah Mah said En En gave excuses such as " this one cannot wear, this one leg pain after wearing" to those shoes that she didn't like. Now, she is real good at giving reasons and excuses.

She's happily posing for mummy to take her photos with her new shoes on...

Still looks big on her, maybe fit better by the end of the year after she grows more...

En En was getting naughtier and more brave to speak out whenever she's not happy with something or someone after attending school. She started to tell lie and denies on something bad done by her. A couples of days ago, she hide behind the door with a crayon in hand and drew up to the wall!!! Mummy caught her and guess what she said? She claimed that it's Zheng who drew the wall!!! Unbelievable that she's lying and look at the height of the "masterpiece", it's really impossible for Zheng to draw so high...

We taught her to tell the truth and admit that she has done something wrong and to our surprise, she was firm with her lie! She was very firm on her speech - saying that she's not the one who drew on the wall even she was still holding the crayon!!! Arrgh... mummy cannot stand it and brought out the small cane and asked her again who did that mess... Ah Mah was also shocked that this little girl was so firm and steady when telling a lie!

After many many times asking her to admit what she did wrong then only she admitted with an unwillingly face. Kakak got to clean up her mess on the wall and she was banned to use crayon for 2 days! Starting to feel the challenge is growing bigger in bringing up a stubborn little girl...
