It's the last day of the year!

And what have you been doing?

It's the time of the year to sit down 
and reflect about what you've done 
and recollect your thoughts
for the past 364 days in the year.

I always tell myself it doesn't matter how I start the race in life, 
it only matters how I end it!

In 2008, I've picked up a couple of new interest....
I've learn to knit.
I've made hair clips, dresses, and crayon rolls.
I went gila making bento boxes, 
and educating my children.

I am thankful that I have a supporting hubby 
who supports every new interest that I indulge in... 
And I don't mean just monetary support...

He will go all out looking for ribbons during my hair clip craze, 
lunch box during my bento craze 
and even a decent dress making scissors 
during my dress making craze.

I know what you are thinking... 
Too bad! He is taken for life, 
for better or worst... 
In sickness or in health!

But, I could introduce you his buddy Eddy though!


Hiroshi has finally open up his golden mouth to speak!
Nowadays, he speaks in sentences......
and even ask innocent questions 
which I often find trouble answering to it.....
(eg: Mummy.... why is Johnny Boy (penis) so BIG?!?)
And at times he even surprises us with new vocabulary 
he picked up along the way!
I could see the approaching of horrible 3 stage,
where he learns to whine and kick up a big fuss from Sophia.
Oh My! When will I see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Sophia on the other hand yaks in sentences,
Her favourite till date is "I don't want!"
She is already exerting her RIGHTS at such a young age....
She has the temper of a raging bull...
She whines and throw tantrum 
like some kinda Taiwanese soap opera!
Oh boy! Did the terrible 2 stage came in early?!!?

I am thankful that God has continuously blessed 
me in many possible ways.
And I look forward to seeing his greater works next year!
Especially in times of recession!
He said ask and it shall be given undo you,
seek and you shall find....

Here I am asking God, 
Please blessed our lives and our POCKETS abundantly!

Cheers for a better 2009!

To commemorate the end of a year,
and the starting of another.....

We had dinner at

Food is Fabulous!

Addicted to the Singapore's Favourite National Hobby!

Have you heard of anyone addicted to Qing?!?!

I think I am!
Goodness Gracious!
I did the unthinkable again....

Q up to 2 hours to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse for 2 minutes...
All for the sake of having a decent FAMILY picture 
with that 2 famous mouse!!
(Kitson wasn't in the picture the last time round 
as he needed to report for work!)

The kids were still very excited to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse,
even though this was the 2nd time we were doing it....

Must be the Magic in the air!
(*ahem* or might be the kiasu spirit in the air too!!

Xplorer Kids @ Downtown East

We hang out with Crystina'na' 
(That's exactly how Hiroshi calls Crystina!!) 
and Ray 
at Xplorer Kids; Downtown East....

I still find that the older kids are very rough!
One of them even pushed Sophia down the slide!
I was so bloody pissed mad!
I screamed at the other kid!

Sometimes it just makes me wonder where the hell 
are the responsible parents!
As that area clearly states for kids age 3 and below!
And that kid is surely older than 3!

Nevertheless, the kids had a great time!

 I just love how cheeky Hiroshi looks in these pictures!

After Xplorer Kids, 
At Gelare.....
Can't decide what flavor ice cream to have next....
Is it going to be chocolate or strawberry?!?
Or maybe Vanilla?!?

Clothed In LOVE....

It's been a long time since I made any garment on my own.
11 years to be precise....

Now, I am finding real joy 
making little mini dresses for my princess....

This was my 1st attempt...
The dress was obviously too BIG!
But, the bow looks really Cute & Classy!

It fits her just right...
And she looks really comfortable in it

Many thanks to SIL Irene who gave me the sewing machine,
so that I can indulge in the hobby I once loved....
