my day off :)

Look..Aidan can swim :)

Was on leave today :)

Decided to let Aidan ponteng playschool and we chose to go Little Gym instead since June bbhome invited me as it was a 'bring a friend' session today. Thought that Aidan would enjoy it. However, Aidan stuck to me like superglue and didn't want to join the rest of the kiddos. He simply refused to leave my side and would whimper whenever I tried to let him join in the activities. He's usually not like that, even when he was just a few months old. I guess it was because he realised that this was one of the rare occasions that his mommy would be with him during a weekday and so he didn't want me to let me outta his sight..It was only when the teacher brought out the balls that he decided to play since he couldn't resist them at all. :P

Later in the afternoon, some of the mommies (and one daddy) came over with their kids for lunch & play. Nenita cooked a huge pot of curry chicken, fried calarmari & prawns + beehoon..Initially, I thought that the food was probably too much but in the end, almost everything cept for the beehoon was walloped. Fwah! They sure can eat hehe.. Shucks..I still thought I would have some curry chicken left to dip with loh-ti tomorrow morning :P

Hmm..I had like so many comments about how neat my place was! June thought I'd renovated my living room coz it looked so spacious..Mong said she'd never seen my place so clean before...Bleah. Was my apartment that messy when I was a sahm??!!! Oh.. just as well...I acknowledge I was never good with household chores and cleaning the house was never one of my fave activity :P

Aidan definitely had a good time today The li' one refused to nap in the afternoon.Usually, he would doosh after his lunch but today, he kept on running out of the room each time I tried to put him to bed. Guess he wanted to be with his friends :) In the end, I decided to bring him down to swim and not surprisingly, he fell asleep easily after his swim. Anyway, I had fun too . I really do enjoy holding such gatherings and catching up with friends. At least this time round, I didn't need to worry so much abt having to clean up the mess :P Thanks to all who came..:)

Most of the pool pics were taken by joeaugustin..coz we were too busy tending to our kids.
Thanks Joe!! :)
It's been a while since Aidan went to the pool and he really missed it. Thanks to Adele's armfloats, he was able to 'swim' a little today and that garang boy really enjoyed himself tremendously..

Hmm..looks like Megan & Macy were oogling at Jordan..

The 2 Megans finally meet..

Doing the Angels pose here..That's Charlie on my lap :P

The standard group pic taken by Joe :)

Watched Michael Chiang's Private Parts with oiseauxbleu on it's premiere night on Wednesday..Thought it was quite good though the sets looked cheap. Kevin Murphy and Christian Lee were solid as Lavinia & Mirabella and the Yann Yann who played Edward was just as impressive [ok ok, i can't do reviews]..Am still wondering who was the actress who played the editor/producer of the talkshow.. But..the best actor I must say is the one that acted/spoke as a minister in a CNA news snippet!

Found it a tad ironic that Timothy Nga is acting in a Ch i local drama but in this play, he's supposed to be this mega popular Star Search winner/hunk turned current affairs host from Mediacorp TV. I kept on thinking that the play itself was almost like an audition for him since most of the MCS bigwigs were in the audience. The 'dreamgirls' weren't very dreamy though. They were imo, the weakest link.Was wondering why they couldn't get better [looking] actors/dancers.

Saw many of my ex-colleagues there..not surprising since the channel is the official media.Met Jacke who heads the promo team and he promised me tickets for the Singapore Idol. He said that they should be out in 2 weeks time. kodomo..heard that!? :) Hm..anyone else interested in going? Not sure how many tiks i can get from him though...

We just got wesley some water wings. His are spongebob. He hasnt had a chance to try them out though! Hopefully this weekend!
Jul. 30th, 2004 09:57 am (UTC)
heh..that's what they are called..waterwings!! hehe..I honestly have no idea! But they are so useful although someone was tellin me that kids may become overly reliant on them and it may be tough to teach them to swim later..
But I'm still gonna get one pair for Aidan. Safer too :)

When u say let them play in the baby pool, is that with or w/out wings? Not planning to let Aidan go into the adult pool yet coz his mommy can't swim for nuts *paiseh*..
The wings helps prevent him from drinking too much pool water coz he goes under quite a bit even in the baby pool :P

I love the first pix..rarely seeing Aidan smiling...
Jul. 30th, 2004 10:03 am (UTC)
heh..i lurve the pic too although his eyes were half closed. He was so happy to be in the water and when he realised he could stay afloat, he was happily kicking himself in it!
yeah..I dont have much pics of Aidan smiling too..

Kevin Murphy played Lavinia lah.... Christian Lee played Mirabella.


The core cast was good. The Minister - ROCKED DA HOUSE! hahahaah.
Jul. 30th, 2004 10:55 am (UTC)

Looks like you guys had fun!
Jul. 30th, 2004 07:48 pm (UTC)
yeah..it was! Too much food too. The other kids who didn't swim did finger painting..and they didn't even mess up the house while doing so..very thoughtful hehe..
Jul. 30th, 2004 07:55 pm (UTC)
those things are called water wings? i've always thought of them as arm floating thingies. sorry couldn't give birth in time. period came and destroyed the entire process :D

anyhoos i wanna watch singapore idol! i'll try and buy my friend and see if she can get tickets too.
Jul. 30th, 2004 08:00 pm (UTC)
tickets are 'controlled' by pple from the production side so if your friend's from there, it will be easy. Am trying to get abt 5 tiks from my ex colleagues..

oi..i very mj gian leh *sigh*
Jul. 30th, 2004 11:53 pm (UTC)
Ryan just refuses to let me put on his Mickey mouse "water-wings"! I thot too it would be so useful!
eh .. paiseh, never bring camera. Can email me this group pix and those with Ryan in it (the one with him eating bee-hoon?) at rachel23@singnet.com.sg
Jul. 31st, 2004 12:52 am (UTC)
can..will email u the group pic..The beehoon pics didn't come out that nice..Ryan's eyes were close in them..that's why i didnt post them..But i'll email u just the same :)

Oh..later Corrina's Chloe comin over..Bring Ryan over if u are free altho some of the adults are playing mahjong :P
Jul. 31st, 2004 12:53 am (UTC)
oh..for the waterwings, Aidan refused to let me put them on initially too. Mong had to help me distract him and we attacked one hand each..And after it was on, he then realised how useful it was and refused to take them off after swimming!! *pengsan*

Hey char bor, thanks for opening up your house and let us mess all from the living room to the toilets to the kitchen and wallop all the food, bread, cheese....

Aug. 2nd, 2004 06:50 am (UTC)

I didn't realised that there were so many other kids falling ill too till i read my friends page..*sigh*
Aug. 1st, 2004 10:54 pm (UTC)
wow!! so much fun can be felt from just looking at the pics!! i must say, i really admire Aidan's 'garang-ness' & his love for water!!
Aug. 2nd, 2004 06:52 am (UTC)
the boy loves the water alot..was his first time with the water wings and when he realised he could float, he was so happy..! Was great to see that big smile on his face..

The problem tho is when it's time for him to leave the pool, he'll make a big fuss!
Aug. 3rd, 2004 02:50 am (UTC)

Aidan sure is a water baby from the look of it. Joey loves water too since she was 4 mo. Its good to let them swim since young to build up their lungs, avoiding any respirative problem. And, you sure know how to enjoy life with so many frens on a off day. ;)

Btw, just to let u know its quite normal that kid will have their clingy stage. I believe frenly Aidan will get over real soon. My Joey was clingy from young till 2.5 yo. She is much better nowadays. Phew....
