thanks lena!

Doesn't this look familiar? If not, look here! mathtoyzLena actually made a plushie based on Aidan's doodle of his dad...and she's giving it to him so that the boy can present it to his daddy on Father's Day! So sweet eh! Thanks Lena!!

Gawd..I have to admit, it does makes me feel more inadequate talent-wise. I really marvel at how creative some people can be. I'm absolutely hopeless in arts and craft. Can you imagine, when Aidan asked me to draw a rocket ship for him and after I'd done so, he gave me a puzzled look and said "But mom, that's not a rocket! looks like car!". Malu siah! And let's not go into the animals I've drawn. I swear my bear doesn't look like a cat at all even though my boy insist it does. *sigh* I guess that's why I suck at pictionary! Think my hands are only good at 'mor-ing' mahjong tiles!

We saw this while shopping for lightings yesterday! Just had to get it for Aidan's room! After discount, we got it for $105 (original price $175). We'd spent a total of $1k at the shop on lightings for the entire apartment which was quite reasonable we thought.

We're kinda behind in our shopping schedule for our new apartment (especially when we'll supposed to move by end of this month *awk). We'd only completed our shopping for lights yesterday..have short-listed a sofa set but we'll probably continue to look around more just to be sure. Actually, our timing is great because it's the Great Singapore Sale now but unfortunately, that meant that the malls are super crowded especially during the weekends.

We finally bought our tv sets..a Samsung 40R71B and a 32R71B. One's for the living room and the other's for the master bedroom! Absolutely loved the design - so ultra slim and modern looking. And the PC show was timely (though costly) too. Ended up with a HP Pavilion Media Center PC that comes with a 19 inch LCD monitor with 250 + 160 GB! So the study room can do without the TV since I can watch it on my new PC =). Hub decided on the Fujitsu Lifebook E8210. We already knew what we wanted before we went to the PC show so we made the sales people life super easy. Still gotta try to settle the rest of the items like fridge, dryer etc..probably will take leave during one of the weekdays to do more shopping. Gonna be really dry soon.

Hmm..I think our plans for our apartment to have a resort feel is going awry. Not really our ID's fault..just that we keep changing our minds about the design. So our ID person said it will probably end up looking like a modern resort - whatever that means. Gotta admit, both hub and I ended up disagreeing several times. No major fist fights ..just lots of pouting (from both sides) and manja-ing (same!). Our taste differs quite a bit and deciding on certain items can be quite a tiring process.

Will be updating my purchases and the renovation progress here. Hopefully, I should have some new pics of my place soon.

Some pics with claudiachengTracey & Claudia and her friends from HK at the High5 concert on Sunday :)

Jun. 5th, 2006 02:36 pm (UTC)
the helicopter light is cool!
Jun. 5th, 2006 02:42 pm (UTC)
yeah it is, isn't it?!! Im not doing Aidan's room much because he's still growing so I thought might as well get him something cool for the room. So right for him especially with his love for planes, helicopters and rockets!

Jun. 5th, 2006 02:40 pm (UTC)

You have furnitures but no lights. So you can sit in the dark. i have lights but no furnitures..dunno who's in a more chum situation hehe!

Where did u get ur furnitures from? Most of the stuff i saw didn't impressed me much *sigh* Yeah..no wonder my neck is aching like crazy. Dying for a massage!

eh thanks for updating me on the case. That's the ending I was hoping for and hopefully, that guy learnt his lesson.

you're looking great as usual.
Claudia looks cute.
and i love that light too! little wonder you had to get it. any other similar designs?
Jun. 5th, 2006 04:08 pm (UTC)

This was the other light i was deliberating on..but it's much smaller and i still preferred the helicopter even though this one looks more like a rocket (aidan's fave)...
Jun. 5th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC)
Hhehe my friend's 5 year old son also went for the concert. I think it's every kids' favorite channel!
Jun. 5th, 2006 04:10 pm (UTC)
the concert was sold out! and the tiks weren't cheap mind you. so yes, it's most of our kids' fave grp! This is the 2nd year I've brought aidan to a high5 concert...not sure how many more years i gotta endure *awk*
Jun. 5th, 2006 04:02 pm (UTC)
Love the heli lights. Really cool looking! And you mean to say that you can watch TV on your new PC? How does that work?
Jun. 5th, 2006 04:45 pm (UTC)
My new pc is from HP media centre pc range..It is not just a pc but an digital entertainment system. It allows for the playing & recording of live tv plus many other features.

I was thinking of getting a tv for the study room but since i've gotten this, might as well do away with the tv and then i can multi-task (watch tv and be on the pc).

(heh, deleted by former msg because it came with loads of info re. hp media centre which could be tmi!)

Eh i got a plain light brown top like your polka dot one...from mphosis ah?
Jun. 5th, 2006 04:24 pm (UTC)
yah! most of my clothes are from mphosis and zara..most of the other shops are always half sizes too big/small.

Jun. 5th, 2006 10:01 pm (UTC)
That's cute and really creative :) it'll be a great present for father's day.

Ya I like Aidan's dance pose in the second last pic,very cool. I also love the top you're wearing in the last pic too nice little polkadots!
Jun. 6th, 2006 03:40 am (UTC)

problem is..with items like furnitures, it takes a while for it to be ready/delivered so if we wait any longer, we won't have much furnitures in the house once the reno is done. We are waiting till the 'end' to do the styling and getting items like side lamps,rugs,accessories etc..

Jun. 6th, 2006 01:15 am (UTC)
Aidan has some cool dance moves ! That light is very nice. Should last him until he is 12 at least ?
Jun. 6th, 2006 03:37 am (UTC)
heh and we were thinking that it should last till he's 7!
Jun. 6th, 2006 01:50 am (UTC)
