Face Painting

Posted: April 30, 2007 in The Kids

The Kids had face painting at Ikano. 

May – flower and butterfly; Twins – dragonfly. 

The Twins were nervous about someone else painting on their faces – though Sarn was slightly steadier. 

And as expected, the Kids refused to let Ama rub them off.  


Karaoke, Again

Posted: April 29, 2007 in Family & Friends

The Family went to Karaoke again, this time with Aba’s cousin (and childhood best friend) and his wife. 

It was at a relatively new place near where the cousin lived, named ‘e box’. Only RM8 per person including lunch and drink – cheap! 

Aba and Ama tried some new songs… and the Kids had NO songs (there were no children songs available). 😦

May drawing is getting better, but she doesn’t like to paint as much (Sarn is the same). 

May’s rendition of Aba. 

Jern, though, like cooking! 

Retired Cow

After 720 days of being a COW, Ama is finally free! The Twins are weaned! (May had 700 days!). 

So, now Ama can sleep thru the night better since The Twins no longer demand milk in the middle of the night. 

To celebrate, Ama bought the Kids to ride the ‘Eye on MalaysiaFerris Wheel (previous, only-see-no-ride). 

The photos taken in the cabin were no good because all the windows were too badly scratched. 😦

4 years and 3 months child still not attending kindergarden – here’s a sample of her writing. 

Mistaken Identity

Posted: April 25, 2007 in Family Time

Ama is usually nonchalant when the Kids are unwell – but this time, May scared Ama when she got a temperature and ask innocently, ‘Why is the house moving?’ 

The Family rushed to the doctor’s. 

Sarn was also unwell. It was probably Jern who infected May and Sarn (Jern was the first to be sick and recovered). 

The next day, Ama fell ill as well! 

And so it fell to <unreliable> Aba to take care of the Kids (and Ama). 

On day one itself, Aba fed Sarn’s antibiotics to Jern (who had recover and wasn’t sick) by mistake(?!?!).

After that, Aba made sure to double check with May that it was Sarn who opened his mouth to ingest when Aba called out to Sarn before spooning medicine to one of the Twins. @@ 

For Ama

Posted: April 21, 2007 in Aba Time

Ama likes thrillers – legal, mystery, action… favourite authors include John Grisham, Dan Brown… etc. 

Two new books by two of Ama’s favourite had just become available at the local bookstore, so Aba bought them! 

They are the newest Jack Reacher and John Rain novels. 

Ama’s MOST favourite – Jack Reacher, is the formulaic western story of a stranger coming into a town in trouble and solving the problem by dealing with it flair, ingenuity and of course, extreme prejudice.  

He has a knack for finding trouble, but he never back down. ‘Not now, not ever’. 

Ama is super happy!!
