Down with Flu & Cough

31-May-2007 thurseday - Today first time Vernon was down with mild flu & cough since he came back from US. Breastfeed Vernon really help boost his antibody all the way, sometime looking back i really wish I can continue breasdfeed him................haa..a :)
MIL send little vernon home much early in the evening today, immediate vernon reach home I gave him his medication that I kept in the fridge. This is becoz I did not have spare medicine at MIL place for cough & flu. looks like I need to plan & have some spare medicine at MIL place just in case.
After 2 days of medication, he still not recovered. At the same time, I just knew that Joshua & jolene also down with flu & cough. Then we started to suspect the flu & cough might be due to we brought vernon to swimming on the last weekend. someone must have the sickness & pass the virus to the our kids.
Papa keep saying all is mommy fault becoz Mommy is the one that brought vernon to swimming. Vernon is so strong all the while, this is why make papa blame mommy of causing vernon down with sick.

Pesta Bunga at Penang

30-May-2007 Tuesday - Today Papa call me at the office in the afternoon & told me not to cook dinner tonight. He planned to bring us to Pesta bunga held at the botanical garden. We reached the botanical road about 7:30pm and the Pesta Bunga will be end at 8pm according to the banner along the road. Papa almost want to give up to go there as he said he only have half an hour to see the "bunga". Furthermore, there're lots of cars coming out from that road. looks like there's a traffic jam on the junction. I insisted we take a look at the real situation at the botanical since we already there. When we were in front of the botanical garden, we only seen the booth selling flowers. unlike last year where there're flowers & lighting decorations. pretty dissapointed us, we plan all the way there as want to give Vernon a surprise.
We still go to see the flowers booth by booth. The most attracted me are those 富貴 flowers - u only see the flowers, no leaves at all. When we got close to the flowers on display & took the photos of Vernon together with the flowers, we were so afraid that this little vernon will plug the flowers. Papa say if vernon plug the flowers, he will walk away & pretend don't know us.............ah yah bad papa. let the mommy pay for the flowers.
soon after we walkby all the booth, we were about to walked back to the car. we saw a cat nearby, Vernon just say :MEOW....MEOW...................with her soft voice.

Say "Keys"

25-May-2007 Friday - Nai Nai prepared dinner for us tonight, we finished our dinner at MIL house b4 went to SunShine Farlim for our weekly grocery. The time we reach home, I was pulling my keys from my handbag to open the gate. Vernon start saying "Keys-Keys", finger pointing to the keys. finally he say the word after my hardwork of teaching every night right b4 his bed since last one week ago.

Vernon Say No-No

For the Last 3 days, Vernon were not taking his usual afternoon Nap. When he reached home in the evening, he started yelling & screaming if we do not gave him the things he desire. I told papa & kakak, we pretend not hearing him screaming & yelling. Let him cry & scream, eventually he will stop and go for other thing after one minutes and this really works. believe it ??
Like when he grab my handphone, he love to throw it on to the cushion. and when he don't like to play with his toys, he throw way out to the balcony. We will say to him......hoohhhh...."NO"..."NO". He know this is a NO NO action and follow us to say NoNO too. But he still keep repeated except when he is at Nai Nai house. He strictly no throwing & touch the things that Nai Nai told him NoNo, even the TV remote on the coffee table. and he will U-turn when he get to the kitchen entrance. This is Nai Nai wonder people usual say, kids likes to bully their parents-lah.
I believe this is what most parents encounter although they try very hard to control their kids from throwing their temper.

Balloon Fiesta at New Mexico

Rememberance back to the time visit to the balloon Fiesta at New Mexico - November 2006.
This event took once a year in New Mexico due to the location, weather, landscape that most suitable for balloon to fly. Everyyear there'll be hundred & thousand of peoples from all over the world will fly in to New Mexico just to watch the balloon & attend the one week long fiesta.
Papa said this is the right chance to brought us to attend, since we were there and we should not miss the opportunity. and we decide to buy the ticket for the 1st day as they have more participations from over the world on the 1st day.
on that day, we have woke up early in the morning as 4:30am. we need to catch the bus in front of Wal-Mart to get to the place. Driving there will be difficult as we might need to walk some distance to get to the entrance gate.
woooohh........the weather were so cool in that early morning. The sky were so dark, the park full of peoples seating or standing waiting to watch the balloon. There were foods, soveniurs for sales at the side walk.
Intel was once of the company that participate, intel have a total of 3 balloons.
Papa was participate on helping to pull the intel balloon on the 2nd day of the fiesta, so he got the chance to have a free ride on the balloon. To ride the balloon cost about USD 100+ per person. This is really a good experience if got a free ride.
U know, Papa also brought us to attend the last day of the fiesta. The last day was on night time and there'll be fireworks and different shape of Balloon on that night.
Very unfortunately, that night not much balloon fly off becoz of the wind & weather make lots of balloon have to "close down" else the wind will destroyed their balloon.

Grocery at Tesco

18-May-2007 friday - Like the other friday we fetched Vernon from MIL house after work. When we reached MIL house, this little poor guy were in the play-pan watching his favorite TV show. while Nai Nai & kakak is doing cooking at the kitchen.

Vernon were very happy when seeing us coming as he knew mommy will release him from the play-pan. The first thing he did after come out from the play pan is go straight to the basket where we use to carry his food supply daily to MIL house. seems like telling us that he is ready to go home now..........................

What for dinner ??? Hmmhmm....Nai nai recommended us to go to have Fish head Mee hoon at Greenlane hieght market. The place has been renovated and pretty clean now, not so many people going yet. I think lack of publicity....................
Papa & kakak try the fish head mee hoon, I took the Osytel Mee..........hmmh yummy.......Vernon love it so much. But he is too busy looking at people & kids surrouding us.
so end up not much interesting in eating the mee.

After dinner, we went to Tesco for our weekly marketing. we walk & walk & come to the frozen drinks area. There's a promoter promote of the latest "Marigold" yogurt drink, so we took a cup of strawberry yogurt drink for Vernon. suprisingly this little boy finish the whole cup & ask for more. I ask papa "patah balik" to request another cup for Vernon & in the meantime take a bottle as well . too bad the promoter already "tutup Kedai" and papa do not allow to open the yogurt drink & Porled the yogurt drink into Vernon's bottlr at the spot. Vernon were yelled at the papa for a while till we divert his attention to other things.

As a parents I felt that we really need to know how to control our kids, what to give and when to give. else they will control us back. :)

Saying "uncle"

9-May-2007 - He learned the words "uncle" today and start using it whenever he saw a guy that meet outside. The most amused me * papa are he saw the statue of Beethoven on top of Papa's piano at home also call "uncle". Which is not wrong at all, beethoven is also a guy. and we cannot tell him don't call him "uncle."

Mother's Day Gift

11-May-2007 Friday - I drop by my sister house to get something b4 we went to pick up Vernon from MIL house. Papa & mommy not too sure where should we go for dinner tonight. Papa just drove his car headed Gurney side, mommy suddenly thought of eating Nando's chicken. So we decided to go to Gurney plaza directly since we need to go for last minutes shopping for mother's day gift for Ah Mah, NaiNai & Chor chor.
We got a nice place at Nando's and ordered our food immediately. Mommy had the normal 1/4 chicken with 2 sides where I chose old style fries, I knew Vernon love the fries if I order the peri fries, vernon can't eat as it has some chili on top.
When the food arrived, Vernon just can;t wait to have some fries. I knew the fries will be too hot inside for Vernon, so he start yell at me for the fries. One thing good is Vernon will never want our drink, he only want his Nan-nan (water).......although we keep offering to him. he will say "tak nak"......
while waiting for papa to finish his food, vernon is saying hi......& gave friend kiss to the waiter & waiters there.
After we done our dinner, we walk around the shops to look for gifts. finally we found very unique pearl jewelry for mother's day gift for ah mah & Nai nai. for chor chor, we knew she love broche so we found a crystal broche for her. hope she like it when we receive.
