mugging nite..

I used to enjoy orientation coz it meant that us newbies haven't officially start work yet..Well, it's not the same here coz this time round, we are actually gonna be tested on stuff that we were 'taught' during orientation. No joke man! It was a first actually seeing people during orientation enthusiastically scribbling down stuff and asking questions with hardly anyone nodding off or sneaking out for toilet/smoke breaks in case they miss any salient points that may be asked during the test..

Man..I've forgotten how to study already! The course co-ordinator said that the ones that usually score fantastically well for the tests are those scholar types that just graduated from school (and there are many of these type in SPH :P) . Of coz lah, what do they expect? Us old foggies who havent accessed our brain power for ages are most likely gonna fail man. How am I gonna remember all the circulation and readership numbers for Straits Times, Sunday Times, The New Paper, Lian HZB, LianHWB, Shin Min, Tamil Murasu, Berita Harian & Minggu (I only found out few days ago the difference btwn these 2 papers :P), Friday Weekly and Thumbs Up (huh? just found out recently abt the existence of these 2 papers) plus all their product distinction and their different focuses ..and this is just a li' of the stuff that's supposed to be tested on. Haven't even started on the media scene yet - the strength and weaknesses of newspapers, tv and all other competitive media. *argh* I miss being in TV already :P I feel like I'm still in school doing my communication studies - and the last time I studied was more than a decade ago! Plus after giving birth, I think I lost abt 90% of my brain cells already..bleah.


Looking at these pics taken at Caleb (son of laurapoon)'s birthday on Sunday brought a smile to my face. Aidan has been going for soooo many parties recently and he always enjoys them so...

He's grown so much already and i know i've said this so many times, but I really miss the 'baby' I used to have yet I am enjoying this li' active boy I have here who never fails to bring a silly grin to my face and lights up my spirits no matter how down I feel. His energy level amazes me at times and sometimes, I wonder whether I should have another kid so that he'll have company at home and someone other than us boring ol' farts to play with..

I really ♥ him so and he's been such a joy to us this past 2 years :) But I see what's happening around us & wonder to myself what kind of world I've brought him into..I admit, I fear for the future and so want to protect him..but I tell myself that I'll try my best in my ability to let him have a good life , not necessary material- wise but for him to be brought up with as much love and support from us :) [ & I will try not to spoil him and prevent him from becoming a brat!!] ..

Patiently letting the jiejie draw on his hand..

Elmo :)

Heh, I think Aidan has this thing for shakin' his booty eh? *recalls the small one's lambada moves* I can already imagine him showing off his neat moves to cute chicks at rave parties. LOL!

You got me babe ... I didn't know Friday Weekly and Thumbs Up (sounds like a soft drink!) existed either. Geez, which rock have we been hiding under huh? :)

Coincidentally, gf and I were just chatting about raising kids in this increasingly scary world of ours. Thing is, you can only do so much as a parent. Teach them how to use or arm them with the right "tools" in life ... and then let them fly. Heheh, kinda like how I'd teach my son about the birds and the bees next time. Hahaha!
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:33 pm (UTC)
yeah..recently he's been in a dancing mode..thankfully he doesnt do the ecstacy dance anymore or i'll have lotsa explation to do :P

Friday Weekly n Thumbs Up are both Chinese papers targetted at the young students..thats y we have never heard of them :P

Birds n bees? I probably will just pass Aidan a pack of condom and ask him to use it when he reaches that age..I think i will prob hyperventilate when he starts bringing girls home (and locking doors)..

gosh... are all kids' birthday cakes so huge and decorated nowadays?!!

it's nice to read a mummy's blog :) very different phase of life from mine...
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:39 pm (UTC)
heh a mommy's blog is q mundane..mainly abt the kid and nothing much more..sometimes, i read u guys' blog n reminise the days when i was younger n carefree :)

Yeah boy..the cakes nowadays are all so elaborate!
Jan. 4th, 2005 12:55 am (UTC)
err..i also dont know the difference between Berita Harian & Minggu...;p
good luck for your test...
and i think jon grows up v fast too...the other day, my coy GP was telling me that i better train my son to sleep alone and not co-sleep with me, but i thought otherwise...he wouldn't want to co-sleep with me a few years later even if i beg him too, so why the rush?
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:41 pm (UTC)
Harian is weekdays and Minggu is for Sunday :)
Learn new things everyday :)

yup..i don't think u need to rush things with Jon now. I always tell myself to hug and kiss him as much as i can now coz in future, he prob wun even want to hold my hands..u know boys lah!

Jan. 4th, 2005 02:25 am (UTC)
what did i tell ya about aidan's coordination? proven in the first pic!
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:41 pm (UTC)
err i forgot liao! were u saying that he had good or lousy co-ordination :P
Jan. 4th, 2005 04:19 am (UTC)
oh man...love the way he dance!!! so cute!!! :)
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:42 pm (UTC)
heh..he was so active at caleb's party..i think he's still in a festive mood :)
Jan. 4th, 2005 11:27 am (UTC)
i realise he rarely smiles for the camera. it's always this *DUH* look, otherwise he's distracted by something else.
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:43 pm (UTC)
i think he's sick of the cam coz its always in his face sinc he was a baby. But u know, after i'd taken a pic, he'll still come to me and demand to see the pic even tho he'd shown such a tl face :P
Jan. 4th, 2005 12:19 pm (UTC)
Like others, I love the first pix of him dancing, so groovy! U didn't catch him when he was busying moving the chairs around? gave us a whole new perspective of kids having fun! LOL!
Jan. 4th, 2005 01:44 pm (UTC)
i did try to take those 'chair' pics but they didn come out well. I think jinny's pics were better.
Heh..we really dunnit to buy toys for our kiddos lah..they enjoy themselves playing with the most common of stuff :)
