too lazy and tired to upload pictures...

so just words.... fragmented....

* had a wonderful break during lunch today.  
met up with my super lovely god daughter and god son for lunch.
then had a short visit to the book store.
felt refreshed!  
(as it was not such a great day at work today)

* had my first bite of mooncakes this year after dinner!
i love mooncakes!

* for the second time in a roll, little bb brushed his teeth with mama's help after dinner!
he enjoyed it even more tonight....
he grabbed the toothbrush from me and kept *brushing* his teeth (mouth) himself...
it was a very very funny and cute (and of course heart warming) feeling to feel the toothbrush running through his seven baby teeth....
when i tried to take away the toothbrush from him, he cried.... very serious crying!  he sounded even more upset than falling off bed the other night!
either he loved the massaging feeling or that the toothpaste tastes like real apple and banana!
(actually i did try the toothpaste myself before brushing little bb's teeth last night,
boy, it was yummy!)
and right now, i am wondering whether it is too good to be true (that little bb loves brushing teeth),
when he understands what it means, he will run away from me and that i have to chase after him every night!

* i didn't get to give manicure and pedicure (hmm actually, nothing in the proximity of *spa treatments*, it's actually torture in the form of nail clipping and occasional bleeding, oouchh) to brownie and sugar...
too busy entertaining somotu's mom yesterday....

* oh, and i got it!  hilarious! 

* and i am quite sick of myself, again....

magical black box

little bb is too fascinated with the little magical black box

every time i wanted to take a snapshot of him playing with brownie and sugar,
as soon as he saw me holding up my polaroid trying to focus
he would drop everything he was doing and stared at the black box
eyes (and mouth) wide open

my remaining films have well passed their expiration date
i hope the coldness in the fridge can extend their lives

his first piece of art work

what do you see?

i see a butterfly.

you don't?

alright, i know i know.
you see a mess.

i am trying to *romance-sify* it.

the other day, i was trying to get a hand print of little bb's little hand.
it wasn't easy to make him stay still while holding him in my arms and trying to extend his right arm....
and let alone trying to make him open his hand and have it stay opened!

the second his little hand felt the soft muddy mushy white clay,
he got very excited
and couldn't stop grabbing the stuff with his little fingers...

the first mark he left resembles a scratch or marks left by a big furious bear....
second trial wasn't any better

in the end, instead of trying to get a clear and good mark of his right hand,
i let him grab and scratch all he wanted with both hands....

and hence this *butterfly*

not bad as his first art piece!  


i was in such a hurry this morning getting ready to work
that a good dab of facial cleansing cream got into my right eye.

it hurted like crazy.  i literally stamped on the floor because of the stinging and pain...
half an hour later, i was able to open my eye...  all red.

went to the optician, 
and my nightmare came true....

i was told to wear glasses for the next 5 days.
i can't put on my contact lens....

oh no!

please stay away from central for the next 5 days,
otherwise it's halloween for you.
a pale ghost floating around in thick glasses.

to make myself invisible / blend nicely with my black frame,
i will be in all black starting tomorrow.
i have even colored my nails black just now.

happy halloween.

i had some spare time during lunch today.

what should i do?
should i go back to the office and read the new books i got?
or should i go check things out for little bb?
(i think i looked a bit phased out choosing between the two while i was standing on the street, ha!)

not surprisingly,
i chose to check out the shop my friend mentioned to me yesterday
(yes, i am quite a shopaholic!).
she said the baby outfits are very nice and surprisingly inexpensive...

as things turned out,
i found myself landed in another shop (which was right across from that shop).

and i got a bit out of control.
i saw those tees which i have stumbled upon on the internet before 
but never able to convince myself to get them...

those tees are on sale now in the shop!
i got a few!

but that's not the best part about this newly found shop...
it was their collection of books, CDs and toys that really got me.

the book collection is not the main street ones...
in fact, they are a bit weird, 
but i find them amusing!
one of the books is titled "all of my friends are dead"...
i flipped through the pages....  it's hilarious!
i would have gotten it if not because of the kind of reaction i would get from somotu!

in the end i got a very proper one...
will take some pictures of it later...
it is very nice and have a vintage feel to it.

then the CDs!

for the longest time, little bb has been listening to this one...
a gift from sweet angela.

now, little bb has a choice!
lullaby renditions of radiohead!
oh my!
how rock!

before i knew it, lunch time was up and i needed to rush back to the office.
before i left the mall, i did stopped by the shop which i originally wanted to visit.
very nice and decent
but nothing compared to the other shop....  it is too decent (boring)!

oopps, i am back again,
i forgot to mention about their shopping bag.

on one side of it, it says in bold:

mama is my hero

how cool!

i am keeping this shopping bag.
it will be little bb's school bag when he starts school.

yet another out focused self snapshot

it was what i wore to work yesterday....
a vintage necklace resembling stardust, feather
and a chiffon top in creme

since it was so out focused,
i played around with polyvore and instagram


i think 
i am in love with out focused photos!

you are the sunshine of my life

there is a new tv commerical which caught my eyes (actually ears)

the background song is~~

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always be around
You are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay in my heart

I feel like this is the beginning
'though I've loved you for a million years
And if I thought our love was ending
I'd find myself drowning in my own tears
Whoa whoa

You are the sunshine of my life
That's why I'll always stay around
You are the apple of my eye
Forever you'll stay in my heart

You must have known that I was lonely
Because you came to my rescue
And I know that this must be heaven
How could so much love be inside of you

could there be a better song to describe little bb in our hearts?

whenever i sing the two lines to little bb:

You are the sunshine of my life
You are the apple of my eye

he smiles back and giggles sweetly.....

melted *smile*

silly act 1

i have thought of doing outfit snapshots
but never did....

until today when somotu took out the tripod,
trying to take a proper family portrait of the five of us....

after we were done with the portrait thing,
i played around taking snapshots....
not very successful as i didn't realize the mode has changed 
and most of them were out of focus.

but it was fun....

in here,
my newly acquired lace camisole,
linen top with lace collar,
flower earrings,
flower bangles
* all from online japanese shops *
and my beloved trio zipper bag from celine
and old pair of jeans from chloe

we did it again.... nearly

it was sugar's 5 year old birthday on friday!

just a couple weeks ago, somotu and i were talking about sugar's upcoming birthday...
and friday came the day.....

yes, we did it again...
we forgot....  nearly

thanks to ah king for sending the happy birthday note early in the morning!

we are really bad parents...
there were just too many things happening these days...
and mama and papa are constantly exhausted....

to make up,
in addition to egg whites,
sugar had a mini birthday cake....
only that the cake was for blowing candle.....
the eating part was saved for mama and papa.... haha

happy birthday dear sugar....
you are always our sweetest girl.

dance like a swan

....  from one of my favorite magazines

which reminded me of the vintage ballerinas i have

reminded me of the little felt swan i made

i have a picture of my god daughter in her ballerina outfit in my head...

what has started should be ended.... with abundance

since it has started....

it should be continued.....

i like this


i like this



more and more.....

little bb has his first fall off the bed....

i thought he was sound asleep already so i went to get a cup of water...
it was just seconds i left the room before i heard crying...

i rushed back to our room, followed by somotu and nanny....  and brownie and sugar.

we found him lying on his back on the floor...

i was very scared and immediately picked him up....

to be honest, i really can't remember what happened in the next few seconds after he was in my arms...
but before i knew it, 
he caught sight of the ice lollipop stick in somotu's mouth 
and giggled....

he loves to bite lollipop stick
and he put his head forward trying to bite on the stick in somotu's mouth...

seeing him still playful and having stopped crying,
we all felt a bit relieved.

we then checked his head, eyes, mouth, teeth, arms and legs.
he seemed ok....

i read that as long as no vomiting and unconsciousness,
things should be alright...

from now on, we will not let him sleep alone on our bed,
despite of all the pillows and blankets being put up.
he is just too mobile now....
