Role play

It seems that when kids turn 3 years old they start to role play. Alicia is one of them too.

Lately everyday she will take out all the chairs and sit some of her favorites toys,on the piano rythm and start dancing.

After that she will stop the music and bow "thank u thank u" and then continue the music and put the soft toy in front and sit down the chair and clap as if the soft toy is dancing.

And finally everyone finish dancing, she will say " i so tired and she would put everyone down on the floor and lie down imitating to sleep.

That is my Alicia! Starting another phase....

My Alicia is 3 Years Old now!

Time really fly fast! I recall when she was just 2 Years old and I was thinking the meter at my blog to 3 years is still so far away and puffed 1 year has passed. 1 Year many things has changed. She stopped schooling for almost half a year, we got a maid to take care of her, she becomes so talkative and playful, she is more healthy now, she is more independent and glad to say many of her bad habits like beating people and bad manners has gone away for now. We still keep our fingers crossed that she behave well and grow up to be a useful person. She also have 2 new cousins in this year and she is a big sister now.

I recall the days where she was just a baby and her first day bringing her home was a nightmare as we didnt sleep at all cause she refused to sleep. It was a new experience for me and my hubby,everything was new and we have to learn everything of taking care of her. Many times, there were differences taking care and sometimes we quarrel, it was a challenge for us to take care of her. The usual peaceful and freetime that we used to have are no longer there for us. Time becomes not enough, we sometimes neglect the closeness we used to enjoy. We become tiring and start to quarrel for some things we disagree on. It sours the relationship. However we learn something which always helps. If its not life threatening,sometimes giving in,closing one eye and compromising makes things easier. We are also a parent now, our child is totally dependent on us physically and mentally. If we let go our spouse because of this, end of the day,the one affected is the child. Remember the good points, forget the bad points. Marriage is not just me and you anymore, cause the day u decide to have this baby its about them too.

Giving the child the best may be good but sometimes if we learn to give in to each other, helping each other, taking care of a baby will be a breeze. Lately I have a lot of friends who just turn mummies experiencing this problems, they become frustrated with their partners, or just fed up with parenthood where their children are just infants which I just wana share with them -Many of the experienced mummies always says endure the first year and time will get better ...When time past taking care of them will be easy ad the fun starts to kick in. Now I think back and think its not so bad after all and Alicia was afterall an unforgettable experience I will never forget and regret when she was less than 1 year old.. Now Alicia is still such a joy for us now. I am happy when she is happy. Her smile and happiness will just tell me everything is all worth it!

Every mummies and daddies Endure! Also dont forget your spouse! Think for each other,help each other to make parenthood an enjoyable one~

Thanks Everyone for the Birthday Presents!

Thanks everyone for the birthday presents. I am really happy whenever I receive a birthday present.

2 Presents especially I really like are Mummy and Daddy present.

Daddy bought me a Cat Saving Box. This Saving box is especially very interesting and it also helps me to save. I just jump with joy when I see the cat eat my coin. I just need to place a coin and press the button and the cat comes out and eat my coin. When I see this, I would jump for joy and beg for more coins to put inside.

Mummy bought me a Mickey mouse digital camera which is children friendly. She know nowadays I start to take photos with mummy iphone so she though she could get me a camera so I can snap all my memories into the camera. Now I bring my camera along and start snapping everyone. Would share with my pictures in future posts.

Its been a long time~~~

Its been such a long time since mummy blog. She actually wrote 2 entries during lunch time one fine day in her iphone. Unfortunately her current company is situated in a location(Tuas) where 3G is very weak and my 2 entries just dissapear after uploading and I gave up as my lunch time was over.
Her current company was pretty good, the users are pretty nice and time fly fast over there and the best part is if she dont need to do overtime, she can easily reach home before 6pm and play with me. Hopefully things will go great and crossing her fingers every day. Nowadays mummy and daddy brings me more often to fly kite and playground which I can spend time with them. Sometimes I would meet Samuel (my neighbour) and we go cycling and play together..
I am also a big jei jei of my 2 cousins now. Time flies fast. I am now talkative and constantly learning very quickly. Soon I will turn 3 years old, wonder how should I celebrate~ Hmm....

Joy of DSLR

Mummy just got a DSLR camera. It's a pretty low end model costing at $499 only after a discount of $150 from the GSS Sales and instalment of 12 months (Lolz... no money) but its enough to grab the essence of photograph that she wants. When mummy has more money,hopefully she can get a better zoom lens with a powerful aperture.

Speed and Aperture was what mummy was looking for... Taking photos for me has always been a challenge since I was a baby. To grab the sudden smile or happiness and joy, mummy's old camera always ended up blur and couldn't make it. The clarity or effects DSLR provides are amazing .

But having a DSLR doesn't means you get instant results. In the beginning stage,mummy couldn't understand how to work with this camera thus all her photos looks very normal or worse than a normal camera. Luckily there was a free class from Sony and after attending, her pictures will improving day by day and practice makes perfect thus day by day getting more and more satisfying photos. Hopefully will improve and make fully use of the photos.

After getting DSLR is not enough,editing also plays a good part out of it like making the photo to sepia or B&W color,increasing the brightness should it be too dark, contrast,saturation,tone,and even removing pimples to futhur improve the picture. Before After

While mummy is still learning, and hopefully will have more better photos in the future... Yipee!

Happy Daddy's Day

Last Sunday,we went to celebrate Daddy's Day with a nice dinner at Ichiban Boshi and took some photos. we just bought a DSLR Camera and it will be a good opportunity to take some photos together. Last Year this Father's Day we will celebrating in the hospital as last year Alicia got pneumonia and was hospitalised. 1 Year passed and we will glad this 1 year Alicia wasnt hospitalised. Now keep our fingers crossed for the many years to come and Alicia will be asthma free. Now she staying at home free from virus is really good cause it will prevent her from getting sick.

Everyone had a happy day eating and walking around.

Its been long since I talk about Alicia and she been growing so fast.

Some common verse she will say or ask is:
"What Doing? So Many and count how many are they" "Everybody sleeping already"
She loves to do everything on her own and she makes the effort to take her own rice for lunch. brush her own teeth and wear her shorts. She is day trained. She imitates the commercial and she is really scared of the imaginary "Uncle" which we have been using it to trick her behaving herself. She is really scared of the naughty corner which is so much effective then caning her. There is so much to talk about her but I cant finish.Hope everyday is a learning phrase and she will grow to be a useful gal.
