New House

Posted: January 14, 2008 in Family Time

Extension and renovation work on the new house including additional wiring had started since 26th of last month. 

Now only tiling, painting and cleaning up is left. 

The metal grilles for windows and doors are being ‘made’ and should be installed before the weekend of the following week. 

The alarm system will then be finalized. 

After which the Family can start moving in furniture, appliances and stuff! 

(Just in time for CNY?)

Wongs’ Handcraft Toys

Posted: January 12, 2008 in The Kids

Every CNY, since the Kids were born, Ama have saved all the ang pau packets that were received by the Kids. 

Now that they are old enough, Ama and the Kids made use of those packets to create paper ‘lanterns’.

The Twins were in charge of sorting the packets into the right sizes (big/small). 

May was tasked with cutting and folding the ‘small’ packets into ‘triangles’. 

Ama stapled the ‘triangles’ into ‘lanterns’.

Marsupial Affair

Yet another ‘role-playing’ case. 

Sarn and May each hung a pouch over their heads, stuffed a soft toy into the pouch, and pretended to be kangaroos! 

They didn’t even dare to bend, for fear of their ‘babies’ falling out, but jumped around a lot (like kangaroos?)! 

Role Playing

The Kids have now begun to ‘role play’, in a weird way! 

They keep referring to themselves in the 3rd person. 

    Sarn: Ama, astronaut wants to… 

    Jern: Ama, Ivan wants to…

It’s just one of those phases.

Twins Go To School (?)

Posted: January 9, 2008 in The Kids

These days, the Twins wake up even earlier than Ama and May. They wait patiently to ‘go to school’! 

They get to play at the playground there and observe the rabbits. 

Poor Ama have to feed all 3 during breakfast earlier in the morning.

… and when it’s time for May to finish school, the Twins get excited again!

Can follow Ama there to play!

May Goes To School (III)

Posted: January 7, 2008 in The Kids

Today was May’s 3rd day at the Kindergarten and the 1st time without Ama hanging around! 

Ama had to leave at 8:00am when the class started for the next 4 hours. 

Ama was filled with anxiety that the teachers would call up to report that May was demanding for Ama or misbehaving. 

But it didn’t happen! (Actually, May thought that Ama was waiting outside for her).

When Ama showed up with the Twins to pick up May, she was confused. How had Jern Sarn come to be there?

According to the teacher, May was well behaved and doing all right in class, barring her poor Mandarin language skills… for now.

May Goes To School (II)

Posted: January 4, 2008 in The Kids

May 2nd day at Kindergarten. 

Ama is still allowed to stay during ‘class’ (last day, parents not allowed from next week). 

This time, Ama didn’t bother to ‘hide’. But Ama did go out ‘jalan-jalan’ while waiting for May to finish. 

When Ama came back, May excitedly showed Ama:– 

May’s drawing was proudly displayed on the board.

May also made a paper hat. She showed off her hat to the Twins when she got back home.
