Anak (Child)
When you were born into this world
Your mom and dad saw a dream fulfilled
A dream come true, the answer to their prayer

You were to them a special child
You gave them joy everytime you smiled
Each time you cried, they're at your side to care

Child you don't know, you'll never know
How far they'll go, to give you all their love can give
To see you through, and god it's true
They'll die for you, if they must,to see you here

The above is the first part of the lyrics to this old song, Child - which is an English version of a classic Tagalog song Anak by Philippino folk-singer,Freddie Aguilar (you can listen to the full version of the song here ). It's a beautiful song with a haunting melody and poignant story about a parent's love for a wayward child. I've always managed to remember the first part of the lyrics (although I can't be sure that it's entire accurate but it's based on my listening of the song)even though I've probably last heard the song almost 15 years ago.

Anyone knows the full (and probably more accurate) lyrics of this song?

Welcome to the World, Renee Soh

Trevor, Bibi and cute 'li Renee Congratz to u guys!

My friends Bibi and Trevor became the proud parents of a baby girl - Renee today..Bibi had a C-section as the baby was in breech position. The delivery was pretty fast according to Trevor..she was wheeled in at 7:00am and by 7:10am, Renee was borne :)

I went to visit them at the hospital today, together with Aidan and my dad-in-law. Gosh..Renee is so tiny! All 2.65 kg/51cm of her. I can't believe that Aidan was about that size when I gave birth to him 2 plus month ago. Both Bibi and Trevor have yet to carry her- Bibi couldn't becuz of her stitches and Trevor was afraid to..So, I cradled li' Renee and she felt soooo light and delicate! I think I've probably grown muscles lugging 4+kg Aidan around so much so everything feels pretty light to me now hehe. Helped the new daddy to 'learn' how to carry his li' one and she looks so sweet in his arms :)

Bibi is fine, though she is still in pain. Both parents look so blissfully happy with their newborne. Bibi says that she will definitely call on me & another mummy pal, Corrina since we are considered 'experts' in looking after a newborne baby..Eeew..can't believe it..Just 2 plus mth with Aidan and I'm a 'lao jiao' already.

Woohaa!! Another girl-friend for Aidan hee~~~
