catch-up post!

Last week when I was still feeling under the weather, Jean offered to take Aidan off my hands. She had already planned to bring Aly to Uncle Ringo's funfair at Causeway Point so she suggested Aidan tagging along. My worry was that Aidan would puke in K's car. The boy still has motion sickness and would usually end up doing the merlion when we are in the car for too long. But with Aly in the car, Aidan's ailment seemed to have been cured even though the distance from our place to Woodlands ain't exactly short.

I was glad to have some quiet time to myself that evening but Nenita was so restless, and kept asking me when the boy would be back. Told her not to worry and that he was in good hands..! And as you can see from the pics below from Jean's camera, I was right!

Dropped by the hospital this afternoon to see how li' Zoe was doing. Am relieved that she in a stable condition and she does look fine..although it was quite heartbreaking seeing her sedated and hooked up to the tubes, lying there on the hospital bed. I can't even imagine how Jean and K must have felt. Aly has lost quite a bit of weight too..and the poor girl was so worried about her sister. Do continue to pray for a smooth and speedy recovery for li' Zoe and strength for her family.


Spent last Saturday with mengchooMong and her family at Keppel Club. Hub was flying in from Germany that evening so we didn't have any family activities planned. Thought it was a good idea to just go relax and let the kid enjoy himself..

took some pics just before we left for the club..especially since it was Mother's Day weekend then..

ala MJ
Mong's hub, Ed said Aidan looks v pai-kia in this outfit :P

They had a bowling alley for kids!

Was the boy's first time bowling and he couldn't get enough of it!

Macy & Megan at the alley...

And next come swimming although this pic was taken after we'd dried ourselves..

Mong's mother's day gift to me :D
Aidan walloped half of it at one go!

See how tanned the boy is now..

Sharon, the designer of my apartment from Haier Living called me about 2 months back. Said that a magazine wanted to do a feature on 'fengshui-ed' apartments and she asked whether she could showcase our place. I said okay but promptly forgot about the day of the photography and was still at work when the writer and photographer came by. Poor Nenita had to hurriedly clean up the apartment too because blur ol' me did not inform her either. Aidan was apparently quite excited and kept getting in the way of the photographer. He probably thought they were there to shoot him :P

Anyway, the feature appeared on this month's issue of Nest, an independently produced home & decor magazine. It is a new magazine on the market..their first issue was in Feb. The mag has it's own blog too.

was going to ask Jean where was this fair when i saw the photos in her flickr account...gabe would have loved to drive that racing car haha he missed the kiddie bumper cars in genting but we cannot find a theme park or fair here that has that...

i only saw the photos of Zoe and man...it is heart breaking enough to see her so sedated and with so many tubes hooked up...just a baby...really looking forward to see that healthy happy baby back to herself soon!!

heh, u know how my place usually looks like lah..esp when our kids are around.
May. 18th, 2007 02:39 am (UTC)
i won't realised it's been fengshui-ed.
Looks so modern contrary to what I would have imagined! =)
May. 18th, 2007 03:37 pm (UTC)
i guess a fengshui-ed place doesn't mean it has to be 'cheena'.
May. 18th, 2007 03:55 am (UTC)
your apartment is sooooo beautiful doesn't look like it has been fengshuied.
Did you get the fengshui master to see the place before you purchase the apartment?
I just realised you and Aidan have many many many pairs of croc shoes!
May. 18th, 2007 03:58 am (UTC)
oops.. i just read that the fengshui master gave the green light before you signing the document ;)

Lucky u! the house is sooo nice!
May. 19th, 2007 03:54 am (UTC)
yeah..the bug that's going ard is really strong. u ain't well too right? take care!
May. 19th, 2007 04:39 pm (UTC)
WOW! Your house looks very warm and cosy! Is that blue room aidan's with stars shinning on the ceiling... looks cool. Just wanna kpoh abit.. if u don't mind, how many rooms are there in the second level (cos i saw the stairs leading up...) haha...
May. 20th, 2007 03:12 am (UTC)
yeah..aidan has the blue room :)

our place is a split-level apartment so there are like 3 'floors'. The entrance is where the first floor is with our study at the side..the stairs will lead down (the stairs go down, not up) to the 2nd levels where the living room is, with the masterbedroom on the right of it and aidan's room on the left of it. Another set of stairs lead down to the 3rd level which is where the dining and kitchen area is. There's another bedroom there, my helper's room.

Sounds confusing eh. I have more pics of my place here
May. 19th, 2007 04:57 pm (UTC)
Wow, your place looks really great! I thought homes featured in magazines were all make-believe but now I actually know someone whose home is featured. Looks like a calm place to unwind :) Wish we could do something similar for our place.
Nice pictures (as usual)!
May. 20th, 2007 03:20 am (UTC)
honestly, the photographer made our place looks nicer than it actually is..and it's never usually that neat either :P

yeah,it's v comfy so i actually look forward to being home esp after a hard's day work. Wait till Elin grows older and you guys can do some redecoration especially for her room. Li' girls room will be so fun to do up!
