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....

love the name of it

1st trial: clip earrings

first time making this kind of earrings
while it seems to look ok by itself
i certainly need more practicing
after putting it on my ear
realizing the positioning of the flowers along the clip
needs some careful planning!

otherwise, all the flowers will be hidden behind the ear!

will try again!

and here
my little model *smile*

return to school party!

just before the start of school
we had a little gathering with big brother's friends since pre-nursery

a bit of splashing fun
a bit of waddling
a bit of mommies talk over sweet treats
and loads of cuteness

❣ ღ♡ overloaded

so the other day 
we bumped into this new shop
so many lovely things to explore and admire
we came across a this "brownie"
too cute not to cuddle
too cute not to bring home
too cute not to have it as brownie and sugar's toy
we walked around the shop
to different corners
while bbb held it tight
when i was prepared to bring it home
bbb's godmother tried
she asked bbb to say bye bye to it 
as we need to leave
and just like that
as easy as it was
bbb said bye bye 
and gently put it back!

and here
this picture
i just can't handle the cuteness of both!

trial & error

many thanks to ms stephanie
for sharing the tips on making these with the iron heads

happy happy hippieee
as i have been wondering how to make them for a long time!

so what are these?
flower stems (without the wire) made with dyed fabrics 
without the wire, it gives softness to the look and feel
