regular update~

Goin kaikai..Glad to be home!~

Aidan Update :
Aidan finally ate his Cheerios on his own...Most of the time, he would grab a bunch of cheerios and try to stuff them into his mouth but because he doesn't understand that he have to release the cheerios into his mouth in order for him to eat them, he always get frustrated because he knows the snacks are in his hands but it ain't goin into his mouth [and stomach]. I guess he has a hard time grasping the 'letting go' concept because his previous snacks were usually much bigger (like those wangwang biscuits] where he's able to hold on to and munch on it. Cheerios are so tiny that it's almost impossible for him to hold on to it and eat it..

Well, he finally did it today. I think he did it by following my example because I had to eat quite a fair bit of cheerios just to show him how it should be done. Now the weird thing is that after he successfully place a cheerio into his mouth and start munchin on it, he will then place his fingers into his mouth to suck them hmm..and the cheerios doesn't always stay put in his mouth as it sometimes drop out..And he was so funny today..after getting the cheerio into his mouth, he will do this cute li' hand signals..where he'll wriggle his wrists about..

Cheerios video : Big File/Smaller & much fuzzier one

Paid for and received my air tickets to New York on Northwest & Las Vegas on Delta Airlines..There better not be anymore changes grrrr...

Well, managed to get more savings by some stroke of luck I guess..Initially, I was supposed to top up another USD160 each for the new ticket with the amended dates to Las Vegas on top of the USD100 cancellation/amendment charges. However, I was unable to make these payments via my credit card as Delta Airlines office in States was unable to process it because the credit card wasn't a local one..So, I was to go to the Delta Airlines office in Singapore to make the payment and be issued the tickets...To my surprise, the Delta Airlines office in Singapore said that I only needed to pay USD100 per ticket..so I quickly paid for it and left the office before they realised the mistake. Hope the US office don't email me and demand for more money :P..

And when I was at Dynasty Travel waiting to pay for my tickets to New York, the travel agent asked me.."err, how much did I quote u for the tiks to NY?"....She'd quote me S$1050 actually but I told her it was S$950..she was like.."err was it S$950? eh..so low ah? hmm"..and she said okay and went ahead to issue me the tickets at the 'new price'..heh, more savings for sneaky me.

I decided to cancel my reservation at the Chelsea Savoy I'd booked us in which was charging USD150 per night to a cheaper hotel, Chelsea Star which is only USD129 per night. The rooms looks okay (I booked the Superior Room) and the reviews on the hotel seems pretty good..tinymich, any idea abt it's location? Based on the map from their website, the hotel seems to be pretty centrally located ..

Hee..all this savings will probably go into our shopping fund. Arghh..still about almost a month to go before we leave for New York..can't wait~ Anyone needs me to get anything from there?

Port Dickson in just 2 days..can't wait *gleeful*..

Was making a list of stuff to bring and realised that most of it are for Aidan..Man, when one travels with a baby, the 'luggage size' increase threefold..Hope the boot is able to stuff everything since our in-laws are all squeezing into our car. Will take loads of pictures man!


Ryan and Rachel came visiting this afternoon..here's some videos of them playing together..

a)Tried to introduce the concept of sharing to Aidan..I think I failed miserably...-Big/ Small
b)Aidan & Ryan standing in the cot~ - Big/Small

Aidan is very photogenic in all his photos, and nice smile too. I like him in that suit the one that he went kaikai, very unique and cute.

It's always nice to keep some photos to see the difference as they grow older.
Aug. 20th, 2003 07:33 am (UTC)
heh..I thought his smile was kinda crooked ..not the usual baby wide smile u see :P..I think Caleb is more photogenic tho..all of Caleb's pics are really adorable and he has such big eyes!

Yeah..Im sure u take lotsa pics of Caleb from birth till now. Imagine this, i print out most of them ..!! *arghh*

Aug. 20th, 2003 07:31 am (UTC)

Heh..he is always grouchy..jus that I am tryin to not take that many of his black face look or else when he look back at his old photos when he is older, he'll think that he had such a miserable child/babyhood :P~

Aug. 20th, 2003 07:58 am (UTC)
heh yeah I thought so too..Wonder what it meant..

Oh yeah, ur comment prompted me to go look..argh, I think I threw the whole box away a while ago..bah..darn, I actually thought I still had it. Sorry!
Aug. 20th, 2003 08:07 am (UTC)
he sure does love his cheerios..:D was funny when he tried eating rigt off the plate lol and he has beautiful lashes...its a trait I find a lot of males have..hence the reason why women have so many gadgets instruments, and makeup to curl theirs I guess..

it is amazing how much babies facial features and hair grow in only a few months.. wow!!

Hope everyone has a great time in Port Dickson!!
Aug. 20th, 2003 08:13 am (UTC)
Actually, I agree with you..I see lotsa guys havin nice long curly lashes and gals with short straight ones. ITS NOT FAIR I TELL YA! No wonder the aethetics industry is doin so well..makin money of women..gah!

Thanks! Will definitely try to enjoy myself..hopefully, Aidan will too :)
Aug. 20th, 2003 08:32 am (UTC)
He is so cute in his video (Cherrios). Notice some of his pix is taken with his grandpa... must be his fav grandpa :)

Hope you and your family enjoy your trip @ PD. The last time I went there, the pool wasnt there yet as it was quite new, anyway it was very enjoying. Enjoy!!
Aug. 20th, 2003 08:56 am (UTC)

Aug. 20th, 2003 09:00 am (UTC)
Hey angela.. wow hehe that lady is quite nonchalant eh? Like she asked u so casually. Haha lucky you, 100 dollars saved! Aidan looks so cute with his hat on!
Aug. 20th, 2003 09:07 am (UTC)
Not sure whether she was nonchalent or plain blur..Actually, saved me more than 100 bucks..it was USD100 so that means it was @S$175 and for 2 tickets, it became $300!! hee~ That's why I was so pleased~
Aug. 20th, 2003 09:17 am (UTC)
Chelsea Star was actually one of the first hotels when I found. Didn't recommend it because it's actually a youth hostel, so won't be really nice or anything, and you'll be surrounded by grubby 18 year olds with backpacks all taking their gap year. heh. =) and for the price, it was comparable to Savoy, which is why I rec-ed that. The Superior Room they showed in the pic is also absolutely tiny.
But it is a little bit cheaper lah, and I guess when you save a bit every day it all adds up to quite a lot yeah? =) and if you don't mind being a bit squeezy in your room then there's no problem! Just spend the whole day out lor! :-D

Location is perfectly fine. you'll be 4 blocks north of Ben's apartment. still very convenient. =)

Also, Ben said to tell you this:

"hey, in case Angelia and hubby forget, they need to enroll in a frequent flyer program. if their tickets allow them to accumulate mileage, the singapore trip is worth 20,000 miles. tack on the vegas trip, which is another 4,000 and you've got very close to the 25,000 miles needed for most free flights. northwest worldperks, continental onepass, and delta medallion are all in the same alliance, so they could condense all mileage into two accounts and voila - 2 free domestic tickets. well, dunno much the requirement is from singapore, but it's worth spending some time on it. besides, it costs nothing to do..."
Aug. 20th, 2003 09:29 am (UTC)
I can pretend to be a grubby 18 hehe..But yeah, it was the pricing that won be over..not the room..Can tell that it's really small n squeezy but what the heck. We would save abt USD100+ stayin in Star instead of Savoy. That's why I booked a nicer hotel in Las Vegas to make up for the 'crummy' hotel in NY.

Oh no..am not sure whether it's too late to enroll in a frequent flyer programme..arghh..he's advise came too late. Will try to check it out tomm! Anyway, the trip should be confirmed *yipeee*. So 20th eh! For our shopping trip~~Oh, have u given me all ur contacts yet so that I can call u when I'm there? Darn forgot to do so at Adele's that night.

this first thing i noticed was that he has nice long eye lashes!! much longer than mine (after mascara) haha.

he really looks good in hats, caps, etc i realized. should get him more! but he looks like a babygirl in them thou is doesn't matter because i remembered how much my mum used to complain that i looked like a total babyboy when i young! and now i'm (too) gu-niang looking. haha
Aug. 20th, 2003 09:35 am (UTC)
hee..if Aidan understands all this comments, his head will be so big coz everyone seems to comment abt his lashes..but anyway, I think they are nice too coz his lashes are also longer and curlier than mine (yeah after mascara and eyelash curler too)

Hmm..I think he looks gd in hats/caps coz he is botak hehe..

Well, it's good to be a guniang girl what. I think u have style..I love ur HK/Batam pics ...esp the HK ones..so stylo!
