Yesterday night, while tucking Aidan into bed, I heard a loud "poot" sound and the li' bugger looked at me and giggled. "Was that you who farted?", I asked..

He nodded ..and then he started muttering "fart fart fart..puck puck puck..f**k f**k f**k!". He must have seen my horrified expression and was bemused by it and continued to utter that dreaded word repeatedly!! Gawd..my worst fears have come true. That incident wasn't a fluke..

And what do you think was the first thing he said to me this morning when I greeted him..*sob*

Gah! Hope he didn't repeat those words in school or he'll be the first boy ever to be expelled from playschool!


But his speech has improved so much and I am much relieved by it. He has (finally) started on the inquisitive phase where he'll be questioning me nonstop "What is this? Why is that? Where is this/that?", he'll query.and I'm still not tired of him asking me all these questions simply because I'm just so glad he's talking coherently now.

Sometimes, he'll purposely ask me questions which he knows the answers to. For example..he'll point to the bunch of bananas and ask "What is this?".and I'll deliberately reply "I don't know. What do you think it is?" He'll proudly answer "It's yellow bananas!"

Can't wait to see what else will comes out of his mouth (well, cept for the vulgarities)..

Aidan's mega TL look..Like paikia siah!

When will Macy be back? :D~


Nothing much going on at work since most of my big projects are over ..kinda relaxing. Hubby isn't able to clear leave as it's his turn to be swamped with work so my plans for a long holiday doesn't seem to be materializing *sigh*

Usually, for trade events/functions, us promo people would usually be asked to help out as receptionist/ushers/flowervases :P Okay lah..quite sian-nang..just sit there, ask for namecards and show them in..Sometimes, I'll double as a photographer since most pple know I always carry my digicam with me (not that I'm qualified to be one)..

With Janice, Huey Jiuan and Willy..
at the reception table at the TNP Trade Luncheon

Digital Life turned 1 few days ago! Actually, the magazine is older than that..it started out as Computer Times 6 years ago in Oct 20 1999 but it was revamped as Digital Life last year so that's how it became young again. There's a Digital Life charity auction of the latest IT product and gizmos going on (it ends today at 11.59pm) where the proceeds of the sale will be going to ST School Pocket Money Fund. Some folks had actually bidded an amount above the retail value..Go ahead and check it out and do your part for charity if you are already planning to buy any of the listed items..there are still some items that's below the suggested retail prices.

Anyway, we had a bash to celebrate it's 'birthday' at Highwood Wine Cellar. The event, in the words of squarenails had "lots of wine and cheese and singing SPH people"..We were entertained by some of the heads (including my snr manager) who took to the stage...Hm..actually, i think they were better musicians/guitarists than singers though..(hope my boss doesn't read this :P)

Heh..now that most pple know abt my blogging ways, I actually tell them when I'm taking the pictures that it's for my blog! hiaks~

the stage backdrop..

ze birthday cake!

The promo chicks~
with Huey Jiuan,Grace & Agnes..

Both of us trying to act cute
(we were bored being glorified receptionist lah)

With Lian Sze..one of the account managers under the IT team.

squarenails came really late as she was rushing from the 'Meet claudiachengTracey gathering" with the other ljmommies..
Met rollybolly there too although she disappeared before I could catch up with her..

That's Fai..an old classmate from uni whom I've not met for almost 10 years.
He didn't seemed to have aged..bleah.

'live entertainment' on stage..
That's Tom & Geoff, the 2 unit heads in action..the guy on the right is the real musician for the night whose limelight got snatched..


We saw a place that we liked alot during our househunting last weekend ! It's 999 years..huge - abt 1700 sq feet (lotsa room for Aidan to run around). It's a split level apartment with a nice balcony from an old condo development but the place itself is done up pretty well (the owner spent 100k on renovations). Have made an offer for it already..but we'd offered $50k less than the price they've quoted. Wish us luck!

Luck!! You ah, next time don't be a pottymouth in front of Aidan lah.

Now the trick is to NOT react whenever he says it - he'll soon get tired of it and move on to more vulgar words. Hehe.
Oct. 20th, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC)
but i never swear in front of him!!! especially not that word! arghargharghargh! how would i know that fart will become....

Yeah..next time, i'll just be nonchalent and ignore him if he says it again...alamak, dun curse me hor..if other vulgarities come out, i'll sure pengsang!

omg... he said that?!? wah jialat!

so why did he yell it out at lunch last time? cos he was pissed at the noise? hehehe...
Oct. 20th, 2005 01:51 pm (UTC)
yeah jialat..fortunately, he didn't say it at all today after this morning..keeping fingers crossed that it wont happen again especially when we bring him out! Happened to a friend of mine though..Her daughter somehow liked to say the words "blow me" and uttered it to my friend's pals when she brought her out :P alamak..

not sure why he yelled it out that day..it just happened suddenly and after that, he continued to eat happily..Kids ah *sigh*
Oct. 20th, 2005 01:50 pm (UTC)

hahah! So funny to see Aidan doing the Ms Hk pose.

agree with Jean about not reacting to his f word. Where on earth did he pick it up from? Maybe an outing with grandparents and he saw some kids swearing? Don't know why the tods pick up bad language so quickly. for my case, C even knows how to apply them. :( Can die or not?
Oct. 20th, 2005 02:57 pm (UTC)
that's the pose claudia is best known for *grin*

i have no idea where he picked it up from..i really dont remember using it in front of him. Kids really do pick up stuff so easily at this age eh. Claudia is way ahead in speech so im not surprised that she knows how to apply it..and where did she learnt it from too :P

aiyah now i regret not taking pics when we had dinner!

i can imagine how horrified you were when you heard him say those words! haha!~

i'm sure he just thought it sounded funny and wanted to say it to you and see how you react!
Oct. 21st, 2005 12:05 pm (UTC)
yeah..he was reacting to my reaction lah..next time i stay calm :P
Oct. 20th, 2005 04:45 pm (UTC)
Heh... Cham liao...

Just remember NEVER to show him Crayon Shinchan!!! Otherwise end up like my friend's son.... -_-'''

Oct. 21st, 2005 12:12 pm (UTC)
yeah..he's taller but skinnier now..*sigh* watching him grow up makes me feel older too :P
Oct. 21st, 2005 01:48 am (UTC)
I know my little cousin loves to say "wang ba dan!" and slap my head. He's around Aidan's age I think.
Oct. 21st, 2005 12:07 pm (UTC)

ok ok..i've learnt my lesson. Next time i'll just ignore him when he starts cussing! See ya tomorrow!!!
Oct. 21st, 2005 03:15 am (UTC)
erm... Christopher also went through the saying f*** phase, so don't worry.

I spoke to him very quietly and seriously and impressed upon him the severity of the offence of saying that word, and he more or less hasn't said it since. Don't worry, don't react and I'm sure Aidan wil just forget it. The more a fuss you make of it the more likely that Aidan will continue saying it just to get a reaction out of you.
Oct. 21st, 2005 12:14 pm (UTC)
heh..cant imagine that boy of yours saying the 'word'..he got this innocent look.

I have to agree..so far i havent made a fuss..only had a shocked look so he was probably reacting to it. will try to be nonchalent the next time it happens!
Oct. 21st, 2005 03:21 am (UTC)
Does Aidan know what f*** means? As in it's a vulgarity? On a lighter note, he's pretty good with rhyming :P

All the best for the new house purchase! The place sounds really lovely! Oi, when you moved and having garage sale, don't forget me!

Already eyeing your lovely lamps :P
Oct. 21st, 2005 12:16 pm (UTC)
i dont think he knows..how would he *grin*

the seller countered with another price. we'll going down to look at it again this sat. will take some pics. I will probably retain most of my furnitures when i move over..since most of it are still quite new..not sure how much i will give/sell off..

eh..my place got lovely lamps meh? *blur*

good luck on the house hunting~ no more hillview eh? :)

i've got a funny story abt kids and foul language- my friend used to make his toddler cousin [younger than aidan] repeat hokkien foul language after him. my friend recorded it just for laughs. imagine a cute boy saying Knn, ccb and all that in an innocent voice.. lol! of course the parents weren't around when he did that. and the kid didn't remember any of it too.. heng ah!!
Oct. 22nd, 2005 12:53 am (UTC)
hillview too far lah :)

aiyoh..ur friend so evil..thankfully his cousin didn't remember any of it or else his parents will flip!
Oct. 21st, 2005 02:40 pm (UTC)
Kids say darnest things. Aidan is just creating new words. I bet he thinks 'The word' he created is funny.

Lancerlady and I also tau tia yesterday. Lancerlad called a stranger "Fat uncle". But saying 'The word' is more tau tia than this.
Oct. 22nd, 2005 12:52 am (UTC)
omg..how did the 'fat uncle' react? my friend Jean also had the same problem with her kid Aly who also called a stranger 'weird looking' or something like that..

Wah, Aidan's vocab very powerful ah! LOL! Babe, methinks he might be mixing up fart with f**k (especially if the latter is pronounced fark) ... subtle difference that a kid might not be able to pick up. Heh, why don't you use another word instead to mean "fart" (I can't think of any offhand though ... make one up?), teach it to Aidan like it's the hippest new word around, and when he says it, do a mock "shocked" face. I bet he'll be using the new word soon and forget about the unfortunate f-word. Worth a try no? ;)
Oct. 22nd, 2005 12:50 am (UTC)
i just gotta be reminded not to use certain words (eg: fart) especially when it sounds like you know what..maybe i'll just still to my lousy mandarin for such 'taboo' words.

eh..u've been MIA leh..too busy to update?
