a toy, a tooth and time for a break :)


Look at my clownmobil~~

Vrroom..Vrrooom..Schumacher, eat your heart out~!!

Haven't been buying much toys for Aidan ...the last item he had was the exersaucer and it was given to him by his grandparents..As for the rest of the toys he's been playing with, they were either gifts from the 1st month celeb or from his grandparents. So today, I bought him a super-dooper biggie toy ..a Fisher-Price Slide to Ride walker...I think he's still too young for it though, since he's only learning how to crawl so far..He can take his time to learn to stand and walk..:)

The li' bugger's first teeth has sprouted out too..not the entire teeth tho, jus a top part of it and it's darn sharp! Am not gonna try takin pics of it coz my many attempts at just having a closer look at it has caused many bite marks on my fingers..so imagine if I was armed with a camera....But heh, here's another milestone reached...:)
------------------------------------------------------------

We may be going down to a beach resort at Port Dickson next weekend with 2 of our other couple friends (together with their kids)..And yes, we intend to bring Aidan along.. Our New York holiday plans are on though..This is just a short weekend trip with good friends.Should be fun especially they are also bringing their children along...

I guess this is more of a 'guilt' trip to make it up to Aidan..since we're gonna be leaving him for almost 2 weeks in September...The thing is hubby is unable to take leave on Friday so we would either have to drive in at night (it's a 3 hours drive to Port Dickson) or leave early next morning for the resort. Am not sure whether to go at night because hubby has never driven down to Malaysia before and I'm not familar with Malaysia roads either...Am wondering whether the signs/directions to Port Dickson will be very clear..Don't wanna end up in KL..

Had just applied for his passport online..and it was so tough to snap his passport pic..he simply refuses to look directly into the camera..In the end, the only pic that came out somewhat decent was this...


A very stoned & crossed-eyed looking Aidan..

------------------------------------------------------------

I have to admit..the bomb blast at Jakarta has rattled me a little..am not that sure now whether going to New York during the anniversary of 9/11 is such a good idea especially since there are reports that the JI may launch more attacks in the States..But we are still going nevertheless...Am trying not to let it mar our holiday plans..

But u know..the report of the latest terrorist attack didn't shock me as much as the Bali attack or even the 9/11, even though many of injured were Singaporeans.I don't know whether it's because because I'm getting immune to all this chaos around us..Am I the only one who feels this way?

I don't usually sleep early..usually abt 2.30-3am every night.It's okay when I'm relaxed sittin in front of the puter as opposed to carrying/cuddling/nursin a 8++kg baby tryin to put him to sleep.

the passport photo can't have any shadows otherwise they will reject it. I had to bring Ryan to the photo studio to get it done.

So does that mean even though they 'accepted' it online, I may still have to retake it again at the studio? And that means I only find out when I collect his passport? I think there are photobooths to take his pics at the Immigration office right?

I nearly bought the same piece of toy for Nicole but chose something else when we were at Carrefour last night where they were having a baby fair.

Am also thinking of bring dd to Port Dickson sometime in Oct and have been asking around for directions, apparantly most replied that you can't get it wrong as the road leading to the place is really idiot proof! Have fun.

oh..i din know of any babyfair..issit any good?

Oooh..if it's really idiot proof..then it shouldnt be that bad eh..but I guess we still gotta arm ourselves with a map just in case..

Immunity is the only way to get by with life every other day i guess. We had National Guards right around our subway station just before they decided to go to war with Iraq and although that startled me a little, i guess it's just better to be safe than sorry. now it's almost perfectly normal to see someone carry an assault rifle around the streets. Heh. In uniform of course.

Yeah..i guess it's sorta tougher for u guys, esp being so near to ground zero. I would have been startled to see the guards ard too..and havin the constant reminder of the war and even worse, fear of even more retaliation.

oh i am in a conumdrum...and u got to help me...
my cousin who is two....is having her birthday this coming national day and I really havent got a clue to what to buy for her or what to give her. I went to life story at Paragon to look at the kiddy clothes but i realised that they are really tiny. or either that no size..where else can i get nice chic clothes that you get for Aidan eh...by the way, my cousin is a girl.

Aug. 6th, 2003 02:17 pm (UTC)
Yeah.Lifeshop stuff tend to be a li' small..I actually buy the clothes that are supposed to be for 2 yrs old for Aidan to wear now..

Why don't you try going down to Forum Galleria..there's lotsa baby boutiques there and some of the girl stuff are pretty nice...expensive tho since most of the boutiques are brand names (Guess,DKNY etc)..or you could go to the Zara boutique (only the one next to Borders sell baby clothes). I heard their li' girl stuff are pretty cool.

erh..erh..hope that helps..hehe maybe some parents of baby girls can help u out too!

very very nice toy!! Aidan seems to really like it too!! i visited a church in jurong once, city harvest, and their nursery is full of fisher price toys!! thinking of going back once in awhile to let gabe play with those ones as trial before buying them :P
angeliatay
Aug. 6th, 2003 10:45 pm (UTC)
hee..good idea to let Gabe try out the toys before buying it for him..Our kids ah..so fickle with toys! But I guess the older they are, the more appreciative they are with them..

Wow..I guess City Harvent is big enough to have a nursery with lotsa toys for kids..

Teeth! Another milestone alright. Now ya gotta watch out for bite marks on your shoulders as well when carrying Aidan ... that's what happened to my colleague and her baby. The young uns are pretty fascinated with their new ability to bite and chew real hard I heard. LOL!

Personally, I think it's better to err on the safe side and not be in NYC during the anniversary of 9/11. And yes, I'm pretty rattled by the bomb blast at JW Marriott in Jakarta coz that's where I normally put up and if not for a last minute cancellation in biz travel plans, I would have been there this very week!!! Talk about providence or divine intervention. Scary stuff eh?

I gotta agree with you on the bite mark bit... I was carrying my 19 month old son last sun(who btw has a full set of teeth save for the big molars)when I fell this excruciating pain on my left shoulder and it turned out that he had gotten a BIG mouthful of mommy and was biting down hard!

pain pain pain.... this sort of lovebites you don't need!

I really like this toy very much myself (I don't know about Caleb though...) I had been waiting for Caleb to be older, at least if he can sit all by himself, then can buy this toy toy. I trust FisherPrice toys a lot, cos' very lasting. Another reason for not buying yet, is waiting for grandparents or aunties or uncles to buy lah... (still hoping...)

I saw in Carrefour Baby Fair, not much cheaper, otherwise I would have bought it... so you didn't miss much in the fair.

The toy looks really good, do u know if they have it in Metro or Taka and how much? I still have vouchers from Nana's 1st mth celebrations, maybe can buy some more toys for her.

I feel the same way too and I'm very sure we are not the only ones. Had a chat with my colleague on this jus now and she thinks that it is prob because this bomb went off in Jakarta. If it had been in other places like msia or spore, it would have had a much bigger impact.

Aug. 6th, 2003 04:32 pm (UTC)
Just my thoughts...
But why would it be a bigger impact in other countries only? I see it as the same impact, perhaps your point is if it strikes closer to home, then we would have more concern and worry? I think?

Deliberate acts which resulted in loss of lives shouldn't be condoned!
