What Next Hombre.

My brown Asian cellulitis arse have been stuck in Singers-land for a good 8 months plus! 

This brown girl needs an escape soon. 

I have been toying with Europe, Greece, Istanbul, Japan, Islands of Thailand, Helloo Bali, Melbourne to vist the family there amongst others. Decision, decision. Right now, I have hmm plenty to think about at the moment. Will strike back after this break.



I have been <strike> drilling </strike) training this kiddo with some assessment books from the Kindergarten Level. I know right, Erda what are you doing to your child! I'm sorry kid, one day I hope you will understand. 

Dammit Singapore, stop pressurising mehhhh.

I received my belated birthday present and I think this is the best gift ever. A Wall Punch Pad! A birthday gift from a dear girlfriend, Mia the Mouse. ahahah I was going on and on about a punching bag as a birthday gift (Well they did ask what i wanted for my birthday whaaat!) Shameless i know right? BUT of course the current house has no space for that so i think it was a smart idea that Mia gave me a wall punch pad instead. Actually, honestly I was surprised she got it for me. Because you know people hardly take me seriously when i say something hawhwahaw. 

Clumsy Ninja. The kid is obsessed with that game. I have to hide the I-PAD away from her. In the meantime, she been whining on wanting to join in some martial art class. I have been toying for her to join in for self-defense. I need her to be well equipped with protecting herself. Trust me, I had gone through hell when I was at her age all through the age of 9 with some unfortunate incident. I have been reminding her, NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO TOUCH YOU. TELL ME IF THERE ARE ANY INCIDENTS. One of the reason why I do not dress her up too girly.  Aby, I am sure you are well equipped in Taekwondo and Silat back in your days. Please impart your knowledge to this young Padawan of yours. I thank thee.

Jam Packed Weekend Yo.

Oh boy, oh boy. I woke up lethargic and tired on Monday. I am totally spent! I totally drag myself to work today.  Aching body and the Chinese New Year mood is sinking in. Ceh like as if i am celebrating it hahaha. 

On Saturday, we sent my dad off to the airport. Oh that's my cousin writing down stuff for my dad. hah. That's me looking sick because of the haze. Afterwards my face looked puffy and bloated. 


 

Me looking sickly because the haze was making my eyes itchy and the nose was leaky and bleeding again. Sheesh. Thanks peepor for burning the forest down.  I just want to go home and sleep the sickly feeling away but the kid wanted ice cream and was getting a little whiny because her Ya'i is not at home. So to muffle the whines and cries, ice cream it is. HAHAHA. 

Oh another rude experience I faced while eating. There was this buncha ladies seated beside us. I noticed they were staring and whispering. Then they started pointing at the kid. I turned towards them, smiled and said YES? They immediately turned away and pretended not to look at our table throughout the rest of our stay there. Like hello, it was so freaking obvious that you were pointing at my kid. The least you can do was say something back and not pretend as if nothing happen. Grr. 

Sunday, we head off for the kid's first swimming lesson at Pasir Ris Swimming Complex at 10 in the morning. She was doing well up till to the point where the big bucket of water fell on her unsuspectingly and she screamed bloody-mary afterwards.  (She HATES that bucket of water in any water parks since she was a wee one). So imagine me getting wet because she called for me and started hugging me. 


 

 

 

I have to say Coach Shah really knows how to handle the kids. Even when some of them are bawling their eyeballs out. He consoled them saying if you cry, the water will get into your mouth and he even helped help the snot away from the kids' noses. Aww.   A fun loving guy who has his ways to catch the kids' attention.  Being funny and entertaining, making them laugh. Thumbs up. We decided to sign up for the rest of the term. 

If you are keen, here's his number listed on the poster. He conducts classes at Pasir Ris as well as in Sengkang. See wherever convenient.  


After swimming, we managed to grab a couple of groceries before headed home. We once again misjudged the loot we bought. (yea like 10kg of rice, Basmati rice and brown rice all at once hello???) 

Yatie and family swung by after Zohor to deliver a standing fan for us. Bless their kind souls. Funny story was, during the hangout http://daryathedrama.blogspot.sg/2015/02/my-belly-is-belly-happy.html the other day, the fan decided to blow and the whole house tripped and was in darkness. Haha thank god the girls were very understanding. It was pretty embarrassing. Then the kid was complaining that she's feeling hot ahhaha. Although Dad has already fixed the wiring to the fan, Yatie and husband insisted to keep a spare. SOOO, thank you my friend. May Allah bless your kind hearts. 




kid is happy, she thinks anything in a box is a present for her. 

I kind of doze off for a solid 5 minutes at the sofa right after Yatie and family left. It felt like the most awesomest sleep ever. 

My mom woke me up and asked if I was okay and able to move on to the next program whahawhawa. 4pm, another trial class for the kid at MindChamps at OneKM. Thank god for everything within the East ok. Took her 30 minutes to be assessed so we chill and have a cuppa tea and a scoop of ice cream at Gelare. I decided to forego it although it sounds like a good idea for them to train her on handling the pencil in a proper manner as well as for her to mingle around with new friends, but the cost at a whooping 3k for 4 terms held me back. It's a good investment but hmm not this time.  (That 3k would probably sounds nicer to travel with my kid ahhahahah!) 



Last stop, vising the Valentine's Day baby boy Azfer (who was supposedly due on 7 March but decided to pop out early)! Hello Assalamualaikum Baby!

Countdown to days HELOOOO HAMSAMASHAM BOY back in Singers!

What Is The Time Mr Clock?

Countdown to 13 days left.
*takes out my pompoms and ready to go, sister!*

I mentioned in my previous post on how unproductive I was over the weekend. So I made up to it yesterday after i came back from work. I planned to spend at least a couple of quality time with the kid before lights out at 2130hours. So was speed-choring (the act of doing my chores in a super speed manner ok) and finally settled down. 

Weapon of choice:

Recycled pizza box from last Friday's food party
Felt fabric (bought from Daiso) with adhesive back 
Thumbtacks 
A pair of scissors
Another awesome red box (used to house my brother's headphones heh)
Twine


 

In the beginning, I wanted to use the kid's cut out photo of herself as the arms of the clock. I miscalculated and cut it in an awkward manner. Plus, methinks she will be confused on telling which is the HOUR hand and the MINUTE hand if we do incorporate this cut-out into the clock-face making project. *self consoled* 

So, keeping it simple for her to learn the time, a proper looking hour and minute hand it is. 

 

this way! says the chopped legs. no that way! says chopped torso


   

The cutting and pasting of the numbers took a little longer than expected. I had to estimate the space to place the numbers and cut the numbers in mirror image otherwise all the numbers will look 'backwards'. Kid got a little cranky because it was nearing her bed time. She fell asleep while I was still busy cutting and arranging her clock. 



I used the thumbtack to secure the hands of the clock. Bend the sharp edge, cover it with another piece of cardboard and masking taped it. 

Tadah all done!

the finished product~
