Aidan@HK :)



Yeah..both of us returned from HK on Tuesday safe and sound :) I think Aidan enjoyed himself [when he was awake] . He was so gwai while travelling 'coz he slept most of the time when we were in a moving vehicle..and would usually continue to zzz for about 2 hours or more. Here's proof [yeah, smelly piggy went to HK too].

Presenting to u..the Zzzzz monster..

Zzzzz on the way to HK in the plane/at the Lamma Island ferry and tru out dinner

Zzzz at Teddybear Kingdom..

Zzzzz at Ocean Park/in the Mtrs

Zzz on the way down from the Peak

Zzz on the way back to Singapore..

He was such a sleepy head that I had to wake him up on several occasions so that he won't miss the sights and attractions..especially in places like Ocean Park.

It was great in a way because it gave us opportunity to shop (in peace) and enjoy our lunch/dinner (esp at Lamma Island). But when he was awake, he was extremely hyper and active and refused to stay in his stroller. He also didn't want to be carried much either. So, we indulged him and let him walk/run as much as he could..And he was such a happy camper becuz of that! We all took turns holding on to him, chasing after him, ensuring that he didn't bump into other pple or objects.

Hong Kong was not a very kids- friendly place in that it wasn't very convenient travelling with a child on a stroller. Thankfully, I had mom-in-law with me coz I wouldn''t be able to manage those long flights of stairs alone with the li' one. My mom and sis, evonnetay flew in on Sunday and we had more help then. The li' bugger had 4 of us adult women running after him most of the time.

This time round in HK, I covered more [touristy] places. We went to Ocean Park & Teddybear Kingdom and the Peak especially for Aidan, went Stanley Market, Ladies Street and shopping at the megamalls like Harbour City and Times Square at Causeway Bay and the obscure shops and factory outlets. The weather was good, not as warm & humid as Singapore. It was only rainy on Friday and the rest of the week we had loads of sun. Food was fab as usual..we ate mostly around our hotel area at Jordan (Kowloon) and most of the stuff we had was scrumptious. We had really good service too and Aidan was treated like a li' prince by the waitresses..He was ordering them about in his baby language and they were all fawning over him hehe..Cute lah! Oh, we had loads of deserts, especially the mango iced pudding. Aidan lurrrves it. I'm usually an icecream person and not into chinese deserts but the ones in HK tasted really good.

It was a good trip and I enjoyed myself alot...especially with Aidan, my mom, sis and my mom-in-law around. It was great to have been able to catch up with Mong meganmacy & Tracey claudiacheng with their kids too. I wish hubby could have made the trip too but I guess he would ended up looking after Aidan while we shopped away merrily hehe.
Here's some of the pics taken..

Looks like you had a wonderful time! How wonderful that Aidan could sleep most everywhere you went.

BTW, your sis looks just like your mom! Maybe it's an older sister thing b/c I also look more like my mom than my sis. Sometimes Stephen points at a pic of my mom and calls her "Mama".

Yeah..it was a good trip. Aidan was easier to handle than I thought..and no motion sickness at all.

Ya..i know sis resembles my mom alot. Jus yesterday, I was telling her that and she was trying to convince me that I look really like my mom too..but I told her she looks EVEN more like her.

Welcome home :D Looks like you had a BLAST! The hotel looks nice. Where did you end up staying? I can't wait for my trip next month. :D

ended up staying at Proton Prudential at Kowloon. Location was great..Jordan MTR was below the hotel so it was really convenient and the area was fab..loads of food places and shopping too! Paid abt 130+ Sing per nite including taxes.

Every morning, when Aidan wakes up, first thing he does is to switch on the tv, sit down and watches it intently..And he doesnt even understand Cantonese!! Yeah...he definitely got it from me :P

First time seeing pics of your Sis and Mom. You resemble more like your Dad?

eh..well, Mong & Tracey says that Aidan looks more like his daddy now when they saw him :) I think he got both our features.

Pple used to say that I look like my dad when I was younger..now I think I'm a mix of both my dad n mom.

Just viewed the video clips. Aidan looked so excited exploring the hotel room surroundings! LOL~

And he is so guai...eat his own food at the restaurant - what is he eating? I can imagine Charlotte would be pulling at the plates and stuff from the table etc...

he's had a children's meal ..he had a hawaiian pizza (ham & cheese) and mushroom soup. He was munchin on the pizza in the video :) When Aidan's eating, he'll usually concentrate on the food. Only when he isn't, that's when he'll start 'destroying' stuff :P..

heh..he really enjoys running along the corridor on the way out n in of the hotel room..

i lost some weight actually..realised I'm now abt 54.5 kg before meals and abt 55 after..target weight of coz is 50kg :P..I just wanna get rid of the extra flab on the tummy and hips.

I bought the red nikes in HK ..it's actually 2nd hand. Got it for abt SGD35. I ♥ the color and design..only 1 pair and it was in my size. It's a Nike Airmax..

Wah, looks like you guys had a great time. Man, it's been a while since I've been to HK, and the pics and places you mentioned brings back loads of memories. Heheh, did I mention that one of my ex lives in HK? Anyway, amazing that Aidan can sleep through all the sights and sounds. But it's a good thing he sleeps so well on planes. Man, I've encountered so many kids who cry so much during flights. They must be feeling pretty uncomfortable or something. Btw, it's Causeway Bay not Causeway Point lah you! ;)

May. 27th, 2004 02:48 am (UTC)
eh..so u would have a free place to lodge in if u go to HK for fun eh *wink*

Yeah..am thankful that Aidan managed to zz in the plane..was afraid initially that the pressure will get to him (there were other squealing kids onboard) but he was fine. ALthough when he finally woke up, he was quite active and the poor guy infront of me kena the 'kicking chair'..got dirty looks from him :P

Oops..causeway bay ya ya..amended liao hehe

It looked like you guys had a great time!!!! I'm so glad that A go to sleep alot, so mommy can enjoy herself, eh?
So those diet pills do work, eh? What are you taking? And what are the side effects?
angeliatay
May. 27th, 2004 04:25 am (UTC)
yeah i did enjoy myself and i think so did my mil, mom and sis.

Hm..i only took the diet pills for abt 6 days coz i was getting bad nausea..But it did help me lose abt 1.5kg i think..Now what i do is to watch my diet..I eat abt the same amt but i dun take dairy and stop my coke drinking altho i did indulge in it when i was in hk..trying to get back to the 'healthy diet' again.

You are so blessed to have Aidan Zzzz most of the time!!! Maybe he knew he had to get enough beauty sleep, so that he will look good, meeting up with his gf, Macy.

Looks all of you enjoyed yourselves very much!
angeliatay
May. 27th, 2004 04:06 pm (UTC)
heh or mebbe he wanna let his mommy shop as much as possible so that when's he's awake, she wont bring him to boring shops where he had to sit quietly in the stroller..

yeah..we did enjoy ourselves..better than I thought it would b actually :)

welcome back! wow... Aidan can really sleep, very ho mia, go where, sleep where! your holiday pix are really tempting!
angeliatay
May. 27th, 2004 04:02 pm (UTC)
yeah! Strange coz he's not like that in Singapore. His whole sleeping schedule changed in HK (he zzs at night later there). But i am thankful..I always think of it this way..he sleeps well so that he can harness his energy to play hard when he's awake :)

eh i must tell u..i saw all u guys holiday pics with ur kiddos and thats y i so wanted to bring Aidan somewhere to enjoy himself..Next plan..australia ..n tis time round, with hubby :)
