5 in 1 Jab

30-Sept-2007 Sunday - This is 1st time we brought Vernon went for sunday Jab at GMC. We headed GMC about 10:30am as Vernon slept till 10:15am only he woke up. Around 11am we can see a big group of parents + babies & toddlers waiting outside Dr.sim's clinic.
U can see everyparents were waiting un-patiently with many of the toddlers & kids there are sick and it made me worry that the air might transmit the virus. So we decided to bring Vernon to the other side of the clinic (near the casher counter) in order to isolate from those sick kids while waiting. @1pm finally is Vernon's turn, we went into the clinic...............
the 1st thing Vernon did is call Dr.Sim....."UNCLE"....."UNCLE"
Dr. Sim was so happy seeing Vernon, he always say Vernon make his day as Vernon boy love to smile@ him.
Dr. Sim asked : is Vernon love to brush teeth?
Mommy: Yes, off course........He love it so much till he do not want to return/let go the toothbrush to mommy.
Dr.Sim : Wow, I am a lucky mom as I got a son who love to brush teeth. I should be proud of him. This will ensure that Vernon boy will have a strong & nice teeths.
After that Dr.Sim gave a strawbeery toothpaste for Vernon as a reward.
Today Vernon is going to take his 5 in 1 jab.
Dr.Sim checked on Vernon's ear, eye & so on are all okey..................
but one bad news we take home from Dr. Sim is : He is leaving GMC soon.
He might startup his own clinic privatly or joint other hospital soon.

**too many politics@workplace, I think most of us also encounter this problem. Is how we look at it. However if the situation is too serious and make a person hard to take it anymore.
I believe the choice of leaving the place is good for both party.

Bear bear yo-yo

30-sept-2007 sunday - This is a windy evening where Little Vernon had his nap at about 4:30pm and woke up late too. The maid feed Vernon porridge pretty fast as I planned to bring Vernon to bukit dumbar park b4 our dinner. Around 7pm we go to the park without papa as he is lazy to go walk walkl.

James already got what he want, when we are done for the tit-bits side. Going to move forward to next sections, our little boy follow what his papa did.
How? He started pick his snacks/tit-bits and throw into our shopping cart . We remove out the tit-bits that he just put into our cart. He go back to the shelf and pick the snack and throw into our cart again and again. Till we told him, papa already got 1 for
He look into the cart make sure his snack is inside, then only move forward.

1st Wedding Dinner

Tonight 1st time I brough Vernon attending wedding dinner@ komtar Tower.

By the time we reached komtar@ 7:30pm, no shelter carpark available anymore. So papa have to park at the open air carpark. We walked across the road & headed to the tower lift.
While we were in the lift, Vernon kept saying & couting the number show on the lift indicator. though he can't read the 2 digits yet. But he read out the 1st digit correctly and it amaze all the passengers inside the lift. Very soon, we reached 59floor and met the bride (a friend of mommy) and we were be sitted at the corner area together with my colloegues.

Vernon 1st time seeing the big group of people, start crying loud. later I told him, nothing to be scared boy......................and he start getting use to the place & people surrounding.
well, the dinner started and as usual he don't take any of the food and just water. Perhaps he just had his porridge lah.
after a while, a friend sitting next to me offer vernon for a walk-walk.
immediately Vernon jump into her arm and wave bye bye @ me & James.
He is so happy, go with one after another friend and go around a few tables.

Vernon : Uncle botak.
Papa : no, don't say.....uncle will angry.
I am the one that teached Vernon botak (no hair), he picked up the words pretty fast. just a night, he remembered it so well. and James told me, I'm not suppose to teach our kids those words. He scared that some people might not like us called them this way.
Parents have a big responsibility how what kids say, they won't lie. They 're naive & really straight forward, nothing hide.

Climb high on table

27-Sept-2007 Thursday - Tonight our Vernon climb high on to the coffee table.
We tried very hard to stop him, he yelled and scream hard back to us. end up we let him climb and make sure we have someone supervise all the time.

Finally, we found a new book -Pekaboo book from borders friday night. We knew our boy love those book having flip pictures, he learn fast with all these. When he pull the book out from his book shelf, he will one by one telling u what is the name of the pictures. ---> "pooh", Ball, tigger.............
look how serious is he when he read his kacau mommy. He usually want me to accompany him and listen to what he read. and I always pointed to the picture, he will tell me the name of the picture one by one.

Pizza Hut

22-Sept-2007 Sat- Today Our little boss looking at the menu again at pizza hut. flipping up & down the menu on the table while I & James were decide what to order for dinner. At the end we ordered 3 set meals in order to have different flavour of pizzas to share. After a while Vernon found boring flipping up & down with the menu std on the table.
Vernon : Mommy walk walk....
Mommy : No, wait.....the food is on the way.
Vernon then sit back on his high chair again after hearing my words.
well,I suddenly think of request a set of plate & spoon from pizza hut for Vernon. Very fast the waiter brought a plate & spoon for little vernon. He happily play his spoon & plate till he saw the rice set for our maid deliver. He keep saying "want....want," So the maid gave vernon some rice on his plate. Vernon start scoop the rice from the plate & feed himself well one after another.

B4 we left the restaurant and James is paying bills at the casher counter. Vernon was
happy playing with the restaurant manager at the entrance. When we ask him to go home, he told us "". The manager say he is a friendly boy.........hee.eee

Hide & seek

Riding Car at Toy'R Us

21-Sept-2007 Friday - Tonight we went to Toy'R Us to find another swimming fish for Vernon. As the fish that bought last time left in MIL house. I decided to buy another so that we don;t need to bring it back & forth everyweekend. Now we can left 1 at home, and another fish at MIL house. Vernon enjoy play with the swimming fish during he takes his bath.

When we reach inside of the store, Vernon spy a toy car which was pulling out fromt the shelf earlier. He went up and happily ride on it...... we have to use other thing to divert him, so that he willing to go home with us.

Today we brought along the child safety string to QBM, lately we found very hard to control Vernon movement. If u noticed the doggy backpack that Vernon is wearing on in the above photos. Sometime he don't follow us, once we put him down for walk walk. He will run out of our sight, hard to chase after him. To be safe I started to use it during shopping, this is 1st time I use and it make us look like alien. U know lah, asian parents seldom use these on their kids. There're 2 shops lady walk out from their shop and look at Vernon, they laugh & laugh. Not just this, a bumi family of 4 saw it and the son told his mom to look at Vernon too. To be honest this is really effective way to control Vernon and ensure that our kids are safe from bad people.........since now & then there're so many baby, toddlers case. It really make me nervous and always make sure Vernon is beside me whenever we go.

Climbing high

He is now love to try and explore himself to everything. no matter high or low, he will try and observe how we do it. He then will follow what we did. Same for the words what we say. The words we say now, he will then follow exactly the words after u.
He is now moving forward into his own world,learning to be independent.

My 1st Lantern - part 1

17-Sept-2007 Monday - Moon cake festival is approaching and last year we did not buy any lantern for Vernon since he is still too young to handle and hold on the lantern.
This year we bought him 2 lanterns - a modern lantern (Doremon) with battery operated and the other one is an original type light up with candle one. Why we bought 2? one is to replace for last year and one for this year-lah. He is now a big boy and able to undertand what is it, appreciate and hold on lantern by himself. At first, I thought of going back to Air Itam night market to get one for him. well, Past 2 weeks ago when we went to downtown to buy some chinese herbs. I saw "Tai Tong" restaurant already start selling moon cake & lanterns. We dropped by the stall in front of the restaurant and try to look for one. Our first choice is a "Chic" as Vernon is born on Chinese year of Chic. However is chic shape don't look like the chic, it looks more like duck and is a bit bigger for small size of Vernon boy. So we finally bought Vernon an original "fish" shape lantern. And It cost only about RM8, but it comes with 3 boxes of candles.............really a good deal ah......
He happily holding on the stick hanging on the lantern, but on & off his fish lantern go unbalance since it just the string tie to it. He will then say......

Vernon : Mommy tewa (baby words of dropping)
Mommy : okey, mommy fix for u.

My 1st Lantern -part 2

we bought a Doremon battery operated lantern for Vernon from Tesco. The music is a loud, so how papa fix it for Vernon. He use the tape to cover the speaker of the lantern, it works and luckily out little boy didn't notice that at all.

tonight, it's fun looking at what he did to his Doremon lantern. Actually he is exploring the light come out from the lantern. When his lantern lie closer to the wall or door, there's a shadow of lights. and this little boy is trying to explore where it come from and how it can be like that..........I found it very interesting and want to have a remembrance of this for him.
Kids really a good explorer and they love to explore.

Well, we planned to bring Vernon to attend the Moon cake festival organize by greenlane residensial area on this coming tuesday(25-Sept-07) night. Hope he love it when seeing a big group of kids walking along together with their colorful lantern. and we tends to cancelled our
Initial plan of joining the celebrations organized by PSC.

By the time we reach home, vernon look sleepy and very soon he fall into sleep.
He woke up about 6:45pm, and it's about time to get ready for E-Po birthday dinner at "Seasons Restaurant. "
We're the 1st one reached the restaurant, and the restaurant manager there brought us go around the place and try to promote their restaurant. The place is very nice & new and it's all equip with KTV. They have different sizes of room for different needs. Every customer have their own room, very privacy indeed. Not long after we waited, the host is also there and the most impress me is the 1st dishes : see below.............very delicious dish leh. we thought that we can keep the Su Mo Kong, but the waiter say that it's not allowed.

we can have our dinner while karaoke, 3 kids then walk around the room. The 2 bigger kids play the 2-2-train, so as vernon. He followed the big ko-ko go around the room and even play in front of karaoke control system.

At the end of the dinner, Vernon follow ah kong & ah mah to their car. We thought that he will come back to us once ah kong make a U-turn of his car. who knows, he cried out loud when I told him that let's follow mommy go home. he don't even border and keep turning the button at ah kong's car ..................I insist to hold & carry him out from ah kong's car.
