reasons and reasons....



got our first kumon exercise book from sapporo
and we both loved it...
for little bb, he loves finding the way out of the mazes
for mami, the cartoons, fonts, colour and layout are so much cuter than the ones found locally.

and therefore, naturally,
we got more!


























got one for colouring





one for practicing drawing lines, curves, etc

when i saw him connecting all animals on the page instead of drawing straight lines between the same animal,
i said, "straight lines only"
"you start from the same animal and end at the same animal"
and he went,
"唔係呀我兜圈呀!"
in an as-a-matter-of-fact manner.



























one for drawing....
on the very first page, we are supposed to draw leaves to the tree

i drew some leaves to show him how to do it....
and he went ahead and drew big big circles round and round the entire tree...

i explained to him that the leaves grow on the branches of the trees....
and he went,
"唔係呀treeshort #@*$^@#*$@^#!*!"
i couldn't get some of his words,
but i figured he meant the tree is very short so the leaves can touch the ground...
when i repeated what he said in my words,
he nodded his head...

when i heard his reasons,
i didn't know what to say..... apart from "oh i see", "yes, that may be the case"

like with many other things he does,
he always has a reason.

i am starting to get worried that he is going to be a tough one to handle!



























got it less than a month, and are already broken here and there....  hahaha


his kind of dancing

perfect excuses



























i tried very hard to refrain from getting things for little bb
especially when traveling....

but these are too cute to pass....

and i got good reasons to get them....

the mini glass pot is perfect for steaming salmon and pork for him

and the polar bear and seal are good for educational purposes!

water fun, my turn!

i thought it has been at least 15 years
but somotu corrected me..
he thinks it should be 12+ years
since i last wore swimsuit....

as i said in my previous post,
i can't swim and i hate swimsuits...
but seeing little bb and somotu having so much water fun,
i have decided to get one...

got one on saturday
and i must say it must be the ugliest and out-dated piece...
but it's one that i feel comfortable with...

and i actually couldn't wait to put it on so that i can jump right into the pool with little bb
(another proof that becoming a parent will change a person)

despite the rain and cloudy day,
we went for some fun late this afternoon....

i still don't like the feel of swimsuit
(i dislike things that are tight on me)
but i was able to overcome it with the fun and laughter.

*home* in the shopping mall























































little bb running wild in the bedroom of van gogh's yellow house,
at the exhibition....

and he kept asking us why "home" is in the middle of the shopping mall...

sweet stuff

had a super delicious fruit pizza this afternoon...
had three slices of them after a full meal!!!
yummy!
especially like the thin slices of sugared oranges....













































after lunch,
we went to the hair salon for a hair cut....
it's little bb's shortest cut to date!
when i saw the hair on the floor,
i couldn't help but felt a bit sad.....
i like his long hair....

but i must say he now looks like a boy


****

little sweet words:

while i was giving medicine to sugar and brownie,
little bb got very nervous and came running saying
"mami, 小心呀!"
"brownie, 唔好咬呀!"
because i had to stick my fingers and the pill into brownie and sugar's throat
which they didn't really like....


while somotu was checking how much more parking space left,
little bb got nervous and said,
"dadi, 小心車呀!"

thank you little bb

weekend fun across the sea



last weekend, we spent a night in macau....

definitely not a relaxing trip
we came back home with broken arms, back and legs...
but seeing little bb having such a good time with his friends,
guess it's all worth it.


the parade....  with characters from madagascar,
i was thrilled to meet the penguin gang!  
they were my favorite from the movie!
and i was even more thrilled as they patted little bb's head a few times!
(i should have asked for their autograph!  hahahahaha)





and the play room.....
or rather, the sunkist factory....





watching the kids play is very amusing....
better than watching any movie....

for instance, in the above two photos,
what was happening is that:
- no talking amongst the three of them (at least i didn't hear a word)
- they just assume their position and role as if they have been doing this for ages
- without any talking, they know exactly what each of them was to do
- the one assuming the position on the left is pick up the orange balls and keep putting them on the orange rectangular cushion for them to roll down the blue slanted cushion
- the one assuming the position in the middle is the QC, i.e. making sure the balls go through the orange rectangular cushion
- the one assuming the position on the right is to hit the ball with the orange cylinder as it rolled down

my friend and i have no clue what these actions are for and why they find it interesting, or at least occupying (they were doing this for a good 15+ minutes)

and watching them, we think we saw a factory line in a sunkist factory....  hahahahaha
(and again, the most amazing thing is they didn't need to talk to each other throughout)





ever since our sapporo trip, little bb has grown to love this game... 
and he is getting good at it.




soccer.....   little bb didn't really get it...  he thought as long as he gets the ball into the net he wins...  so he tried to get the ball into both ends...  




and water fun again!
