dumpling bao bao

partnered with a group of mommies
to have a booth at the school's thanksgiving carnival

homemade dumplings
freshly made lemonade
siu mai

with signage created by one of the mommies and her girl

it was great fun!
and to our amaze,
the dumplings and siu mai were sold out before we were even half way through the event

at one point,
parents and students were queuing and waiting for our supplies to be replenished
(special thanks to the dad who went to get more siu mai and dumplings)

little brother was our little cashier
collecting tickets from our "customers"
and putting them in the cashier tray

and of course no special treatment for ourselves or our kiddos
we all have to get tickets for the yummy treats!

a very slow process

one by one

and only when the boys are asleep at night

do i get the time to do this

very slowly

limited window of opportunity each night

well done my boy!

we started the day after the mid-autumn festival
with this!

our first time ever!
a swimming gala!

he wasn't too keen about it
but we thought it would be quite an experience 
and fun...  no pressure at all
and we only sign up for two heats 
which everyone who participated will get a recognition

he did the 25m freestyle
and 25m backstroke

got one bronze and one gold 
(gold because there were only two swimmers in that heat

in the end
it's not about the result
it's all about participation
and trying your best

mami and dadi
are very very proud of you!

love you!

happy mid-autumn festival + shower

lucky enough to be able to leave work early enough
to get home
have dinner
then went to the nearby park
with the boys
with their lanterns

and a bit of ice-cream

before the shower came

first attempt to make ear clips
didn't come out nicely
as i didn't realize 
the positioning of the flowers
needed some carefully planning

most of them would be hidden behind the ears....

will try again

well well
maybe it fits little people better!

the night after the super typhoon

bbb made us "dinner"
or, rather, more like breakfast

either way
i don't know where he got the idea 
to put a piece of tissue paper 
under the plate and cup
before he serves us
*cuteness to the max*

super typhoon hits

the whole city has been talking about this super typhoon mangkhut
before it hit

it is said to be the strongest in years

surely it was strong

usually we don't feel or hear the strong wind of typhoons
but for this one,
somotu claimed that he could feel the building swing,
we could hear the strong wind blowing loud and clear,
rain was hitting the windows so hard
that somotu "prohibited" the boys from being remotely close to the windows....

at one point 
the boys were so scared of the strong wind blowing
that they asked me to make a cave for them to hide

fully undercovered
except these little toes

and so the typhoon came and went
leaving the city scarred
with countless trees blown down
roads blocked
trains stopped

to me,
the saddest part is seeing the trees down
the most frustrating thing is...... (can you read my mind)?
no, it's not the inconvenience
it's how uncaring the body who serves the city is....
