Baby Army on Board !!

June 29, 2010
Let me introduce my “camobaby”
Cute but dangerous !!
I try to make baby J abit “dirty” by applying some black “mascara”
That’s what i think is save to apply … hiihihi .
But …. baby J still look fair and clean to me …lol..
I could like to snap more and get more photos for him wearing this cute army wear,
But my dslr battery was “out” .. aiseh ….:(

Lastly he is very active, playful , climb and crawl non stop,
I guess, he be walking very soon .. fuh …. even more busier ….
The only moment he stop is when he is having his nap time or sleeping.
You can imagine how handful is that !!

Alright , that all for today post,
I miss my camobaby now *.* So yes, totally awesome baby .
At 10 months, he is just a “bloomin” .

Standard Chartered KL Marathon

June 28, 2010
Jun 27, 2010
The Standard Chartered KL Marathon kicked off Sunday morning at Dataran Merdeka.
As early as 5am for the Full Marathon even is slight raining .

There is several multiple categories available such as Full Marathon (42km),
Half Marathon (21km),Corporate Challenge (10KM), Fun Run (5km),
Seeing is believing (3km) and Kids Dash.
So to start my first ever run, I registered myself for the 5km run as a Fun Run ๐Ÿ˜›
As i consider myself .. not a runner and not a sport person ๐Ÿ˜›
Thot to bring along Jeremy for this fun run, but at the end we didn’t take him along .
Too young and he is not feeling so well ….
Better let him save his energy for this Sunday Sport Day by the Kiddy .

It was quite great event, Here some photos to show :
wow .. alot of people …. i tell u ….
The finish point .
As for me, i took almost one hour to finish for the 5KM … hahahh .. so “char” !!
The winner took 2 hours and 17 minutes to finish the full marathon (42KM).
( According to a comments that leave to me :)))
I really salute them …

At the end of the run , we each got a Certificate .
Each got a “tiger balm” for shoulder and neck rub ๐Ÿ˜›
No metal for 5km ..

The Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010 is set to do Malaysia proud and beckons the public to support this year’s of having 16,500 runners!

Alright , after this run, my goal for next year will be 10KM !! ๐Ÿ˜›

Btw, i also meet up with a blogger – Paik Ling .. she’s a real runner & very friendly too ๐Ÿ˜›
& also meet up with a Silent reader to my blog …
Thanks and sorry didn’t get to know your name, cos it was so sudden that you know my name ๐Ÿ˜›

As i m abit “blur” and tired … thanks again and nice to meet u ๐Ÿ˜›

…………..

After all the events , that’s a sad news happened during the race as well …

Just read from The Star Newspaper .
A runner participating in a 10km run had collapsed and died during the race,
adding that he was given first-aid treatment on site and rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
But died on his way to the hospital . ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
I guess he is pushing and running too hard .
According to one of the runner , the
ambulance came late O.o
Arrived after 20 minute ,
When the ambulance arrived,
It did not have an automated external defibrillator or a face mask with pump (to pump in more air into the lungs) ??????

My hub always remind me,
If you think you can’t run .. just walk …
yah .. i was like half run half walk, as i m not train enough for this, even is 5Km,
Do not underestimate the distance ….

Overall is a great run minus the death.

Update on The J Brother : June 2010

June 25, 2010
I been writing alot lately ๐Ÿ˜›
This months i’m late on updating the boys development,
So many happening this June ,
We had family day at Cherating, we had father day celebration,
Mummy and daddy 7th years anniversary .. etc etc
Till i forgot what to jot down on the boys monthly milestones,
So many to remember and jot down,

But when come to type it in the blogspot , i forgot … i can’t recall ..O.o

Here we go :

As for the eldest boy aka Jeremy ,
He is turning 44 months on the 17th June .
Another 4 months he be 4 years old .
He is such a Independence boy i could say.
I hardly worry about him when he is in the kiddy from Mon to Fri, from 8am to 5pm.
Unless i got a call from the kiddy said he not feeling well or fall down ….
Other wise, he is 101% doing well in the kiddy,
He get along well with all the teacher and friends .

He also into choosing his own outfit , every night he go to bed
& every time we go out for shopping and outing .

Good news is he able to button and unbutton .. quite well.
Sometime abit slow and get frustration when he cant do it .
Bad thing was .. he don’t want people to help him when he cannot button the shirt.
He insist to do it all by himself .
This can be very frustrated when we all rushing to go out .
Another problem was … he might end up wearing what not suppose to be wear !!
I have to hide some of the cloths , or tell ‘lie’ to him ,
such as …. the cloths is wash, dirty, still wet and so on .

If he love certain cloths, he be wearing it again and again . O.o
At this moment, this is his big development and sometime can create trouble !!

He still love to draw and sing .Now he not so much in to TV already ,
He prefer doing his own sketching & drawing ,
Playing his mega block and toys .

Afraid of the “naughty corner” .
& the “naughty corner” will be at
mummy’s red mural wall ๐Ÿ˜›
Aiseh, the mural so nice & daddy choose that to be “naughty corner” ????

Jeremy can be very very stubborn and hard to handle .
I tried not to cane him and talk to him & explain to him what he done wrong.
Rather then cane him … or we choose the “naughty corner” to punish him .
When come to think about it , we actually need to give him more and more care,
More and more patient to guide him to be good .
As most of the time he is in the kiddy from Mon to Fri, from 8am to 5pm .
We only spend that few hours with him before he go to bed .

……………

As for baby J aka Jareth, He is turning 10 months on the 8th June .
Means 2 more months he be a toddler and no more a baby .
wow wow wow … my baby is turning ONE soon .
I tell u , this lil baby is growing fast .. real fast …Why mummy show his sad face ??
Baby J just recovered from fever, cough and flu .
This is his very first time having fever , yah @ 10 months .
Still got alot of phlegm … sometime can still hear “gi-ku gi-ku” …
Yah … baby lost abit of weigh O.o

He can crawl very fast .
Can stand for a while, in a midst on learning how to walk … is soon !!
Can climb (by crawl) the staircase very fast too … O.o
4 teeth at the moment .

Very “wai sek” ….what ever your mouth was eating somethings,
He will come very fast to you ..

Every time when we said “no more” after he finished his porridge or fruit.. etc.
He will cried as he is still very hungry and wanna to eat more … ๐Ÿ˜›

At this moment ,
I sleep with baby J , he love to crawl to my chest or sleep beside me.
He love to feel closeness to me/daddy when we sleep with him … how sweet !!
Sometime i hug him to sleep too … ๐Ÿ˜›
I don’t have this with Jeremy when he is a baby,
cos Jeremy was trained to sleep in a baby cot until he is 2 yo.

But for baby J, he sleeping time was very unpredictable even until now .
I have no choice . Choose to sleep together with him , at least i can get some rest .
Other wise i be up and down the baby cot to smooth him to sleep .

All i can say .. baby is growing up so much faster than Jeremy at this months !!

Well …. As much as they are wearing me out and driving me crazy,
Iโ€™m really enjoying my kids at the moment.
My boys are like squirrels with rockets up their bottoms.
They canโ€™t sit still, They are active and playful ,
Bring so much smile and laughter to us .
Both at a very 2 different milestones and progress each months
.. a baby and a toddler …
Where little boys bring happy days and tomorrow is always waiting.
Joting down their development months by months make me delight .
Realize I just love them to bits.

And we each have our own. Our stories. Our life .
Itโ€™s one of the reasons I keep blogging, I guess.

Last … Have a great weekend ahead.
As for us, we are going for this Yes … this Sunday !!
KL Marathon 2010 – RUN AS ONE
See you there for those who are joining this Marathon 2010 .
Yes, it’s going to be a good week.

A Matter of Taste : Zebra Choc Cake + Homemade Pizza

June 23, 2010
My own “Zebra” Choc Cake .
A Zebra Cake is basically a marble chocolate cake .
The difference is in the pattern .
Well .. this is my way of “Zebra” Cake
Yah ..the top is a bit over burn …But “don’t judge the cake by it cover ” ๐Ÿ˜›
The inner part of the cake look nice for me ๐Ÿ˜›
I think because of the mound i used , that why the pattern look curvy .
Should have use a normal round mound , it will turn out nicer … ็‰›ๆฒน250g, ๅนผ็ณ–200g ,้ธก่›‹ๅ››็ฒ’, ็‰นๅนผ้ข็ฒ‰250g ๅŠ 2่ŒถๅŒ™ๅ‘็ฒ‰๏ผˆ่ฟ‡็ญ›๏ผ‰, ้ฒœๅฅถ5ๆฑคๅŒ™,ๅทงๅ…‹ๅŠ›100g๏ผˆ่žๅŒ–๏ผ‰

The zebra pattern :
Put some butter batter into the center of the pan and let it spread slightly on its own.
Put some of chocolate batter in the center of the butter batter.
It will push out the other batter and, as it sits for a moment, will also spread itself.
Repeat the technique until all the batter has been used up.

…………………

First time i made my own pizza instead of using Pita bread .
Well, the taste was not so nice , the base was abit hard .
I cooked onion, pork and tomato paste as a filing for the pizza.
Put some sweet pineapple on top of the pizza.
Last serve with hot mushroom soup .
Well, that’s my baking over the past weekend ๐Ÿ˜›

Company Family Day at Holiday Villa Cherating

June 15, 2010
My Company organized a Family Day @ Holiday Villa , Cherating
12th to 14th June 2010We bring along Jeremy but not Baby Jareth .
I think not suitable to bring along Baby J as is full of programs for the trip ,
Such as tele-match for adult and kids, Beach soccer, volley ball,
Kids fashion Show, Water polo and many many games !!
Worry i cant have full attention for him …. eating wise is another problem too .
I don’t want to bring along slow cooking and vege to cook there .
Worry of the hot sun, worry of the mozzie ( yes alot of mozzie) .
OK .. i make a right choice !!

Below was some of the photos to share over the Cherating trip.
Early in the morning we had “pocho-pocho” dance .
Here are some of my colleagues ,Yah … my colleagues mostly is Malay … 85% is Malay .
Only 4 to 5 families was Chinese.
Beautiful beach and deep blue sea .My boy enjoy his sand play .
Water play for the kids
My Super-boy
Fashion Show for the kids .
Last Minute i ask Jeremy whether he like to go up to the stage for fashion show,
He said “YES”
Not wanting him to win cos we not prepared for this show,
Just want him to be brave in front of many people and …. he did enjoy himself on the stage .
Not afraid at all !!
Again … the only Chinese boy and kids too ๐Ÿ˜›
For mummy , he is the most cuties among them …. hihihi
Down the stage he can give u alot of posing,
But up the stage .. he abit shy and just stand and smile ๐Ÿ˜›
It’s was “floral nite” so i bough him a shirt with many blue flower .
He love it !!
I realize it was very difficult to buy flower shirt for boy,
I been searching up and down till i found this from FOS … phew …
Below was the prize we won :
Daddy’s group was the champion for beach Soccer & VolleyBall,
Jusco Voucher for Adult Tele-match ,
Jeremy’s colouring set for kids tele-match .
A RM10 angpau for kids who join the fashion show :p
Sony DVD player for the lucky draw .
Every games received Voucher or gift even my (mummy) group for tele-match was the last group ๐Ÿ˜›
As long as you participated , You will received “something” ๐Ÿ˜›
I m a Tupperware lover .. so i m happy with what we had won here !!
Overall, the trip is fun with lots of games and gifts ๐Ÿ˜›
The place and surrounding was not bad .
But the room itself was “so-so” not so nice, Service was bad too.
Food was not enough, not much choice ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
But when come to think again …. we had nothing much to complain .
As is totally FOC for every staff ๐Ÿ™‚

Wall Mural

June 10, 2010
I remember i had my first wall mural done on Jeremy 2nd birthday .
A gift for him, but end up Baby Jareth the one who used this room ๐Ÿ˜›
Sometime i think … is good to had another boy,
If girl then i had to paint a princess wall mural … now can reused this wall mural ๐Ÿ˜›
After Baby J was born ….later one month, the name JARETH was painted on the WallThe “jungle”
After a good satisfaction on the first art wall mural,
Then again i had my 2nd wall mural on 2009 , rushing and completed before CNY
I remember , i was pregnant 5 months + when i painted this.
Remember i was scold by my MIL too O.o …
Climb up and down to paint …. ( no wander la .. Baby J so active …:P)
Once i had the inspiration to do it, i must done it quickly ,
Other wise …the inspiration gone.
I will stop and never will get it done .. i know myself !!

The “Red Wall”

Now mummy hands is abit “itch” already ..
Thot to paint another wall mural at the dining area or the family area .
But this round will take longer time , i guess ..
With 2 boys around , not sure when can start and finish …lol

I like the below Wall Mural which i search from net :
I will choose the simple with max 3 colour .

The roses and flower
( i like this .. but i think too feminine … i m the only “female” in the house..k )
The brothers
( This is very heart warming pictures …. but i like to get 4 person in)
Mummy, daddy and the brothers
The Illustrative
( This is the most impressive for me, but get the detail done is abit challenge for me)
To Colour/paint is not the problem for me, but to draw it on the wall is a challenge
I like this …
Or forget about Wall Mural ??
Go for :
Canvas Wall art ??
Or Canvas photos ??
I like Canvas actually .
But Big Canvas is always expensive .
I need at least 3 big Canvas on the Wall i plan to design .
Well … let me think of a simple and cheapest way to beautify my wall!!
So …..
Right now , let stop for the time being .
Lets take a blog break on a Short Vacation.
Later tonight got to pack and get my camera well prepared …
To …
“stay tune” for next week ๐Ÿ˜›

Thanks for dropping by here and you too to have a great Weekend ahead.
