Decided not to be lazy to leave my website stagnant.

The medela pump in style has served me very well for 10 months. It's time to archive it for now..

The shoulder bag that I use everyday for past 10 months. Even carried it to work for about 3 months daily.

Last pump on 7-June. Volume getting low, that's why stopping.

Tyson :D

Cheeky and happy face :)

Tyson: I seriously need to lose the fats here!

Tyson's self-entertaining activity in kitchen.

Pull out whatever he can grab hold of. Naughty!

Stern pilot. Watch his hands.

Silly smile.

Tyson: Finally I get a donut!

Grown up outfit :D

Family potrait. :)

Tyson: Mama, I want to go in..

Longing to play with the floating balloons..

Tyson: Have a drink before going out!


Grown baby..

Another "Gai-Gai" day.

Tyson: OK mama, I am ready to go gai-gai!
Mama: Wait.. you haven't comb your hair la.

Tyson: Huh... need to pose for photo first ah...
Mama: Yeah, little handsome :) You haven't thank mama hor...

Mama: OK! Time to go gai-gai now!
Tyson: Not enough! I just started to enjoy it!! :p

Tyson: By the way, papa and mama bought me a toy one day after work. I must have been a very good boy!
Mama & Papa: Yeah... you know what is Little Monster??

Saturday, February 19, 2011

CNY update.

Tyson: Having to talk so much during CNY house visits makes me very thirsty you know. Let me drink something to quench my thirst first. :p

Tuesday, February 02, 2011

Happy Chinese New Year!

Tyson: Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Read what's on the bib. No wonder papa is smiling :p

This is the first bib I got for Tyson when he was still in my stomach.

Tyson: Result of my poo? See the next picture :D

Well... from incredible poo above?


Yay, happy to have a small celebration... because it is our ROM anniversary!

The food :)

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Another progress made.. he can move forward in his walker now.. Last time he could only move backwards occassionally...

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Another little milestone hit by Tyson.. I updated on 23 Nov he could flip over. Now he is able to revert his action - flip back! Just like frying a roti-prata or pancake.. :)

Sunday, January 09, 2011

Hor..!! I caught evidence of Tyson bullying his mama!

Tyson Mama: See?! Tyson is kicking me! What a young bully!

Tyson: Hey hey! Listen to me! I was just showing mama I am not someone to be bullied! Please believe me!

Tyson: See what happened back in October! That is evidence of mama bullying me!!

Tyson: I was so young back then. Can only suffer in silence.. :(
Tyson Mama: ... ... *speechless*

So what's been happening over the X'mas week? Here's some photos of the cute one across a few days...

Where is this place? So in christmas mood...

Tyson: Look at the yellow words on the napkin I am holding for the answer. Clue - it is not "monsters" :p

Another day at Sushi Tei. Poor Tyson must be swallowing saliva...

OK, Papa let him try out some food! :D

Christmas - Small party with our two close families. Cold Storage champagne ham, honey ribs and pro-b chicken are so yummy!

Tyson: I am the santa claus for this year :D

Tyson handing x'mas gift to his grandpa. (But it look like the other way round!)

Tyson: Grandma bought me a little doggy for my first christmas! :D

So tired after a day's party...

Slept more on the next day. Hugging a bolster haha... :)

Look at the contrast! Mama's dark eye rings contributed from waking up at night to feed, change diapers and pump milk, in exchange for a healthy and happy Tyson.. :P

Sunday, December 19, 2010

Tyson on walker..

Tyson: Look at my new green aeroplane! :D

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

It was a happy weekend! :D

Sat Morning - Tyson is all ready for his 4th month jab. Ready in the ultraman position! Doesn't his pointed hair, big round eyes, grey suit and flying pose so remind us of the ultraman below? :)

"Salted-egg" Ultraman.

After the jab, we headed to NEX, the new shopping mall. Look at how happy Tyson is in his father's hands!

Diaper changing time. The belt is so useful for naughty Tyson :p

Lunch at Swensons. Snowie appeared just before we foot the bill. So cute eh!

Tyson: Let me hold the balloon! Mama "bravely" requested for the balloon when the balloon man missed me out ok!

The "clown" came and made Tyson a green balloon mouse...

Tyson: Will you marry me?
*LOL* The green mouse looks more like flower, or a clover leaf!

Dinner time at Nihon Mura with Grandpa and Grandma!

Care bears' here at Downtown East!

So cute :)

Let's dance! Tyson held hands with kiddy tiger, then both swing their other hands and dance in unison :p


Two kiddo tigers crawling hahaha...

Tyson: Hmm.. somehow I feel I look like you today.. do I?

Tyson has an announcement!

Tyson: Hello, Mama's friend... I have something to tell you.. *Make face* Bleah.. :p

Tyson: I can flip already! Able to lift my head and pull my hands out to the front!

Tyson: However, I am still no pro at flipping, still need to practice more! I am most pro at eating my "chicken drumstick". :p

Friday, November 19, 2010

This year we decided to have just simple celebration for our anniversary, since Tyson is still very young and could not go anywhere far with us. What did we do? We had good food for 3 days. Hahaha...
Day 1: Aerin's Cafe & Espresso Bar at Raffles City
Day 2: Prego at Fairmount Singapore
Day 3: My Humble House at Esplanade
Too lazy to upload the photos. Nice update about Tyson is he is learning how to flip over, though not succeeded yet. Heehee. One minute we put him with his head on the pillow, five minutes later, he has turned 180 degrees such that his legs are now on the pillow instead. All part of the process of learning how to flip. :p

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Tyson is 3 months, weighing 7.2kg. Doctor said he is heavier than normal 3 months old babies, but definitely, now is the milk strike period for him, which isn't great!

A shopping day at Ion Orchard. Sat down at MeatWorks for lunch.
Tyson: *Glum glum* Mama is forcing me to drink formula milk, I don't like la! I want breast milk!

Tyson: Papa tries to feed me next. No I won't give in..

Tyson Mama: Yumyum. As usual, the pose of glutton look. :p

Tyson: I love to interact with Mama... :D But I still refuse formula milk although 5 hours passed.

Tyson: Watch TV time, you know! After this Mama finally gave me breast milk which I happily drank :D

Vexed Tyson. Going for his 3 months jab. Ouch.

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Friends came to visit Tyson over the weekend...

Tyson: So many new faces... who are they?

Celeste: Babies - I like! You should see my facebook collection of baby photos!

Joyce: Hee not used to carrying young babies, a bit nervous...

UNCLE DANIEL: I dunno how to carry too, but I can hide it well :D

Mirabel: Cute Tyson!

Tyson Mama: Ok la, let you take a pic of chubby mama and chubby Tyson.

Tyson: Auntie Celeste want to bring me home? My foot! :p

Very serious Tyson...

Michelin hand. :p

Nachos the big doggy :pp

Monday, October 25, 2010

Tyson: *Eyes Big Big* This is papa trying to burp me after milk. As usual I twist and turn and make things difficult for papa. Heehee :p

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Two months old Tyson weighing 6.8kg now. So cruel - seeing the doctor poking his little leg with a big needle for the 2nd month vaccination. :(

Saturday, October 02, 2010

A trip to VivoCity, and enjoying our favourite Pork Knuckle :)

Ah, my birthday. Had a small celebration at Hoshi. Wow good food, good company :D

We've went out for shopping with Tyson a few times. Didn't know the Baby Care rooms at shopping centres can be so beautiful and well faciliated. Haha...

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Isn't the cot cozy? I wish I can sleep there :p

Friday, August 06, 2010

Finally... the arrival of Baby Tyson!

The feeling is just amazing.. he was still in my tummy that morning, then in a few hours, he was lying beside me, out from my tummy already. I wonder how this little big boy hid inside for so long - 9 months... Tyson's First Gallery

Sunday, July 11, 2010

My shopping is complete by now. It's been fun & exciting doing research and purchasing things for the litte one. :)
We started looking around 3 months ago and we had great fun doing comparison and getting good prices for the things we targetted!
Felt a great sense of accomplishment, and here's some details on what we bought and how much. I think those who have babies or are going to have one should agree we are the mid-range spenders, the most expensive item we bought is only $370. :P

Most Expensive Item from the top:
1. $370 - Capella S707 Stroller (Retail price $429. Secured $370 deal from an online website)
2. $336 - Medela Pump In Style Advanced Double Breast Pump (Retail price $758. Bought at eBay USA at $336)
3. $320 - Combi Coccoro Car Seat (Retail price $369. Secured a $320 deal from another online website)
4. $210 - Graco Pack n Play Playpen (Retail price $249. Secured the $210 deal from a separate online website)
5. $200 - Chest of Drawer Wood (Original price $250. Got a discount from a furniture shop in Sungei Kadut)
6. $125 - Jasmine Baby Cot (Local retail baby cots usually range from $300 to $800+. We bought from Jusco (JB) this model with decent wood quality)
7. $109 - Philips Avent Steam Sterilizer (Retail price $149. Bought at Expo Fair & came with free gifts worth $35)
8. $93 - Braun IRT4520 Baby Ear Thermometer (Retail price $149. Bought from eBay USA at $93)

Together with other smaller items that range from cloth diapers (50% cheaper for same brand bought in Malaysia) to baby shower foam, baby clothes (bought at 20% discount during GSS), we spent a total of $2680, saving about $1400 according to my spreadsheet.
Gynae checkup including baby scans already cost $3020 so far.
Next we'll see how much the hospital delivery fee is going to cost us. Ahhhh...

Weekend highlight - A trip to Universal Studio at Sentosa. At a good price thanks to IRAS. :D

Sunday, April 04, 2010

Went into Malaysia yesterday, taking advantage of this long weekend. Had quite some fun shopping there :)

First stop was breakfast at a HK restaurant serving yummy hongkong dim sum.

After some shopping at Tesco, we proceeded to A&W for lunch.

Then shopping at Jusco followed by a coffee break at Starbucks.

Haha, I bought something cute.

Not for myself though~ :p

Early celebration for Valentine's Day this year!

Beautiful Roses for me :D

The card...


For him. Not a watch. Something exquisite and very meaningful for us :)

No we are not tired after work :p

And Happy Lunar New Year! :)

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Was at Kinokuniya yesterday. Chanced upon Neil Humphreys signing books bought by his fans there. His build is actually smaller than I thought. His best selling cover page always gave me an impression he's a tall and big man. Maybe he slimmed down a lot...
As I am not a bookworm at all, his book was the only one I had fully completed in the past two or four years. I can't remember how long... :p

New year Eve - left office on time at 1.30pm. Project has rolled out on 29 Dec, so there's no need to stay back on an eve anymore! We visited 313 Somerset, had Fried Hokkien Mee for lunch, and did some shopping. Bought something at CitiGem! :D After that was T3 and having Lerk Thai for dinner. It was a good celebration!

Friday, December 25, 2009

Celebrated our Christmas Eve by dining at Ippudo Singapore, Meritus Mandarin. The ramen was quite nice. Quality was good. Ambience was good. But can't help feeling stressed by the authentic japanese staff working there... they are just so competitive looking when they work - fast, accurate and so action packed. Woahahaha... You can feel team work is really in place and that just reminded me of japanese soldiers from TVs I seen that are loyal and willing to do anything for their country; well in this place, for their resaurant. But only 50% of the staff there are true japanese, with the majority being cooks. The rest are singaporeans which I can tell they have been trained to be very polite and attentive to their customers. Some look like ah-bengs with their hair colour and tattoos. But they are surprisingly friendly and polite to people! Overall the experience is good!

Sunday, December 13, 2009

Finally I can relax without thinking about books and exams! :D

It's the season for marriage again... saw many friends as well as my bro putting up their wedding pics on web.. Feeling happy for them... and can't help but remember it's time to update the pics link on the left of this page to link to my wedding pics.. which was from last year.. hehe...

Sunday, November 15, 2009

One year passed by so quickly... Took three days break to celebrate our wedding anniversary :) Hmm the photos below seems to suggest all we do is eat and eat and eat... (which is not true of course) :p My Humble House cannot be missed as part of celebration, just that photo taking is prohibited, so doesn't have any to post here...

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Exams! Exams is coming! I've not taken exam for 7 years. Here's the first one eversince I started work... :( Worry....

Saturday, October 17, 2009

It's my brother's turn - his solemnisation at Sheraton Hotel. Now my mum is left with one out of three to fuss about technically... :p

The ceremony with a nice waterfall behind..

The guest of honour who isn't easy to invite.. :p

Saturday, September 26, 2009

Here's some pics to share at D'Kranji Farm Resort. This is a farm stay available at Singapore, which not many people know.. and it's quite to the far west of Singapore... So naturally it became the best choice for us to go for the away-from-the-city break!

Wait, before we leave for the resort, my family ordered a really nice birthday cake to celebrate my birthday! Yum :p

OK here we go, reached "our" villa at the Farm Resort! There's also a car porch included for every Villa. :)

This is the room!

Then we started exploring the farms..

Then it's prawning time. It's included in the resort package. Look, I caught the first prawn! :D

Feeling "pressured", TY caught his first one in no time also :p

After prawning, it's dinner time for us at the Seafood Restaurant. The cook helped us dropped the prawns we caught and cooked it together with the other prawns which is one of the dish for our dinner.

The dinner is not bad!

We decided to order a Sri Lanka Chilli crab also!

OK, here's the next morning, after a good night sleep... Breakfast was served at our Villa balcony. Someone delivered it, and the food was so much more sumptuous than I had thought! Truly happy with the price paid for the package now.. :p

Another highlight, this is the "open-air" bathroom which is part of our room. It is especially nice to take a bath in this way, and I can't remember how many times we showered there! :p

Finally, time to leave...

It was the best break I had for a long time! :)
