CNY Day 3 & Macy's bday

From left, June bbhome and Ryan, Tracey claudiacheng [li' Claudia was zzg], Laura laurapoon and Caleb, me & Aidan, Ashley ashleyneo [li' Tiff was home sick], Trish flipover [her two boys were running around somewhere] and Anny daynema [Dayne was at home]

It was Macy's birthday celebration on the 3rd day of CNY..And so we made our way there so that Aidan could see his long-di gf but he was too tired and fell asleep even before he reached there (we had 2 other visits before that) and slept tru the cutting of the birthday cake After he woke up, Macy kept on running away when we tried to take pics of both of them together *sigh* Guess they aren't meant to be..hehe..

Aidan was wearing the gongfu suit again but this time round, I reversed the top and I think he looks better in darker colors. He'd only changed into it especially for Macy's bday becuz we had arranged with the other moms for our kids to be dressed in traditional chinese clothes but only Caleb and Aidan were in them..

Every house we visited, Aidan had fun becuz not only did he have lotsa snacks to eat, there were other kids and toys to play with and he was always entertained somehow.He received loads of angpows..about 800 bucks worth so far which will go into his education fund. But we gave out quite a fair bit too so it's like literally giving dough to the li' one. Chinese New Year is definitely meant for the kids!

I remember the show I Not Stupid where the young girl was asking the mom where her angpow monies were and the mom was saying that she was saving/investin it well for her (yeah i know..it's supposed to be a dig at our govt and what they say they are doing with the country's reserves)..But seriously, does one actually give all that dough that was collected for the kids entirely to them ? I remember mine was always put into a bank account tho I never remembered what happened to the money later. I think we only kept our own angpow money when we were like Sec 4 onwards..

But oh boy, this New Year was certainly tiring for us parents..There were always so many kids running abt and half the time, I had to try to remember whether I'd given that kid a red packet or not..Some kid's probably smiling gleefully that this blur aunty had given him an angpow twice..

Not sure what it will be like next year when Aidan's probably more hyper and mobile..*awk*

I agree, Aidan looks better in blue. The gongfu suited Aidan makes him looks like Big Brother Big.

I haven't thought what to do with Caleb's ang bao $$$, you just give me an idea... thanks...

hee..we set up his 'education fund' last year already since his 1st month celeb where he received quite alot of angpows. So will jus continue doing so till he starts asking for the rights to keep his angpw money :)

lotsa kids sick this CNY period. Tiff was home sick and Ryan jus recovered from a flu apparently. Worse for Gabe coz he was just back from a long trip (from a cold place) and the change in weather cant be that good for him. Same for u!

Take care eh!

actually...me and gabe were fine, we did not get sick from the trip...ming did, and passed to us his bugs after we were back!! funny thing was that he kept insisting that we should give gabe the flu vaccine before the trip, i told him that he should be the one be given one instead...same thing with sydney trip, he was the one got sick on the way back and passed us his bugs..haha :D

Macy's dad is not the Act 3 guy right?

My parents used to give me huge angpaos, 1K, 2K... Then tell me they will go deposit in a bank account for me... Gullible young me... Sigh... :P
Jan. 26th, 2004 08:13 am (UTC)

Jan. 28th, 2004 05:46 am (UTC)

Heh, the 3 lil' dudes look cute together ... like best buddies and all around the same age/size. Can imagine them hitting the pubs together in the not too distant future. Hahaha! Yeah, I agree Aidan looks better in dark colours ... makes him look tougher. So did he win the heart of his long-di sweetheart? LOL!
Jan. 26th, 2004 08:10 am (UTC)
ur imagination are...solid siah.
*sigh* his long-di sweetheart is able to walk circles round him and away from him..think it's kinda hard liao unless this fella starts walkin too (all the way to HK hehe)

his long-di sweetheart is able to walk circles round him and away from him

Sounds like the story of every guy's life ... the way his "di" is able to walk circles around him. Didn't know it starts so young though. Hahaha!
Jan. 26th, 2004 08:15 am (UTC)
Better not be the story of his life tho hehe..
but then hor, he's like more interested in playing with boys hmmmm....
Jan. 26th, 2004 08:44 am (UTC)
Aiyah, at his age he probably thinks all girls are pests (especially those that walk circles around him). LOL! I have a 5-yr old cousin (boy) who wrote in kiddy writing "Pesky Girls Go Away" and pasted the sign on his bedroom door. I laughed till peng san when I saw it. :)

Heheh, Aidan will soon start noticing gals lah ... you just watch. That time ah, you rather wished he didn't notice them all the time. LOL! ;)

Peter and I agree that Aidan looks better in dark colours... he really looks like little gongfu guy :-)

btw,I like your 2 tops from New Maternity. I'm just like you, I like those tops that can cover all the flabs around my tummy and arms. But I can never bring myself to get clothes from online stores cos I need to feel, see and try it on.

Jan. 27th, 2004 07:10 am (UTC)
Actually, New Maternity's service is pretty good. I'd ordered from them twice and both times, I called them and told them that I'm not comfy abt ordering online coz I wasn't sure abt the sizing. Jean (who's q active in AP)& Joyce (i think that's her name) brought the clothes which I'd pointed out I was interested in, to my place and even looked after Aidan while I tried them on. They even brought extra stuff for me to try and in all sizes too.Thankfully so coz like for those chiffon blouses, I ended up buying a Small instead of a M or L which I tend to get..I hate the hassle of having to return stuff..

It's the tummy and hips part where I need to cover much most and their clothes actually make me look slimmer i think. And the quality of it ain't bad too (tho it's definitely not cheap).

Oh btw, I think u look good (u look like u've slimmed down more) in ur latest family pic..u'd cut ur hair eh..

Jan. 27th, 2004 08:30 am (UTC)
hmmm... good service. but I thot the price is a bit exp for me leh :(

yeh, i cut, perm and highlight but i didn't like the perm so i went back to the salon the following week to trim more.
but i thot quite messy leh cos i didn't apply anything after washing my hair.

Jan. 27th, 2004 06:27 pm (UTC)
agree that their pricing is on the high side but oh well, I don't mind paying for stuff that looks fine on me :D..

Untidy? Nah..I thought it looks good..esp the family pic of u 3..can see the highlights in ur hair too :)
Jan. 27th, 2004 12:56 pm (UTC)
I like Aiden's gongfu suit, I personally think he looks better in dark colors versus darker colors, do u agree?
Jan. 27th, 2004 06:28 pm (UTC)
yeah i concur too. Aidan does look better in darker and more solid colors :D..he's definitely not a pastel and neon person hehe
