I am going to KL

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 19, 2008

Mummy confirmed that we are going to KL together this Saturday. Yippie! πŸ˜›

Mummy will bring “kakak” together to KL too. As kakak will be the one who is going to take care of me when mummy and daddy go dinner at Saturday night. Elizabeth will have to stay with kakak in the hotel room. :(

Somehow, mummy is confident that little Elizabeth will be very happy to travel together with mummy, daddy and kakak. Granny was grumbling that 2 days 1 night trip is too tiring for Elizabeth. And, it’s dangerous to leave baby and kakak in the hotel room by themselves.

But, daddy insists this will be a fun family trip. So, may be mummy can leave my mobile phone for kakak so that she can call daddy up, if anything happen while we are away. And, I need a player for Elizabeth to play her Barney or Brainy Baby DVDs in the hotel room. This is to make sure she won’t get bored and cry in the room. πŸ˜‰

Of course, mummy will bring along some toys and books too. Do you think this is enough to keep little Lizzy busy? Any other suggestions, please?

Daddy also promise that if we have time, we will visit the Zoo Negara. That’s the special program for Elizabeth. Mummy is pretty sure that little Elizabeth loves to meet the tiger, monkey and elephant in the zoo. πŸ˜›

Mummy always like to bring Elizabeth to Batu Ferrenggi night market. She enjoy exploring all the things sold there. So, mummy, daddy and Elizabeth were there last Saturday night. And, that’s where little Lizzy get her new toy — bubble gun.

She don’t play with this bubble gun. She likes the bubbles instead. So who is going to shot the bubble out of the gun? Daddy of course! πŸ˜›

I am fantasizing in my bubble land……

That’s like tickle! It’s funny! But, I love it! πŸ˜›

Luckily this is just bubbles. It is not as solid as golf balls. My little princess just won’t feel hurt even though she got hit by them. πŸ˜›

Oh, Bubble… Bubble… don’t go away! Take me along. I wan to fly too. hahahahaha…….

In fact, Elizabeth always get very excited when she saw something that is floating or flying in the air. I think she might wants to fly too. πŸ˜†


Playing with broom

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 17, 2008

Yesterday afternoon, I am not out. Mummy and daddy stay at home with me too. So, I feel like showing them some tricks. I am sure you know that I am good at tricks! πŸ˜›

So, Let’s see what can I do? First, I found the new broom.

Mummy said this is the latest invention of broom which can even clean the window, the fan or the ceiling. It is made of light aluminum panel and PU sponge. It’s so light. Thus, I can easily raise it high! πŸ˜›

Now… I have a great weapon. Who is going to fight with me?

I can even twist and turn it around like what the monkey god did in the story of “Journey to the West”.

I am a bit tired now. How am I going to put it back?


At the playground

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 16, 2008


Elizabeth enjoys playing at the playground nowadays. But, mummy doesn’t really agree with that. After all, baby Elizabeth is still too young. She certainly don’t know how to queue.At the same time, she can’t handle the slides. Usually, she will climb up the slides from the opposite direction instead of sliding down form high up. It’s either mummy, daddy or the maid that is going to hold her and watch her closely while she is at the playground.

On the other hand, kiddie rides is far more than dangerous than slides and swings in the playground. Especially those that will fly up high to the extend that the parents can’t even reach the kid when they raise their up their hands. 😯

Parents might argue that these games should be safe as the manufacturers should be very careful. They should be aware that if any accident happen, they might get lawsuit. For example, the victim can ask help from Scranton personal injury lawyer to suit the producers, once there is any injury cause by the kiddie rides.

However, we as parents should be mindful on our kids’ safety. In many cases, parents are the person to be blame for the kids’ accidents. In the first place, we should not let our kids involve in any of the activity that might risk their lives.


Elizabeth has new books

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 16, 2008

Through experience, Mummy realized that little Elizabeth does not like flash cards, she prefers books, especially those that separates the pictures of each item one by one like this.

Yes! These are her 4 new books. These 4 are in a set. It’s another set of baby first words books. It’s simple, neat and all the pictures are so real. I think these 4 titles has so much for little Elizabeth to learn. They show things at the shop, in the garden, at home and at the nursery school.

Yesterday, I bought them all from the book exhibition at the ground floor of Gurney Plaza, Penang. I quickly grab it once I see the price. It’s only RM3 ( About USD0.90) each. That’s a very good deal, isn’t it? πŸ˜›

To me, it’s under priced as it is in good quality. At this price, I might feel the pinch if little Elizabeth tears them into pieces. But, at least it won’t be so hurt! πŸ˜‰


Can I follow?

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 15, 2008

Daddy seems want to bring my little princess to Kuala Lumpur.

“Daddy, are you sure?”

Daddy and mummy is going to attend the Manulife Award Presentation Dinner, which held in Kuala Lumpur on the 22nd March. Since it is just a 2 days 1 night trip, daddy thought may be we can give it a try and make it the first long distance vacation trip for Elizabeth. She will be very happy that she can finally travel together with mummy and daddy. πŸ˜›

Frankly, mummy have no confidence at all on making sure baby Elizabeth will not cry when she has to be in the car for more than 4 hours. However, mummy is kind of excited. Mummy plan to bring the maid along to help along. That sounds much better, isn’t it? :)

There are so many things I need to get prepared, including which are the places should we visit when we are there. Zoo? Which toy or what book to bring along? What are the food that I should prepare for Elizabeth? Bread? Biscuits? Plain Rice? Fish balls? Should I get a new luggage specially for baby Elizabeth too? I should bring more pants and shirts for Elizabeth, or more dresses?

Somehow, this is not the final decision. Mummy might decide to give up this idea. As mummy is thinking of reserving this trip as the romantic moment for 2. Oh! I am still very uncertain. :(


My Tiny Umbrella

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 15, 2008

Now is raining season, so Elizabeth need an umbrella too!

“Ok. Ok. Mummy will give you an umbrella. But, don’t carry it outside of the house, especially when it’s raining.”


See… Now you know why. It’s a handmade fabric umbrella. It’s tiny, cute and beautiful, isn’t it? But, if you bring it out into the rain, you will surely get wet. hahaha……

Mummy knows Elizabeth likes umbrella since young. so, mummy bought this back all the way from Hong Kong. Mummy thought that I can still make it a decorative items at home, after Elizabeth don’t play with it anymore. :)

Anyway, Elizabeth loves it.

She will carry it, kiss it, turn it around and also……

“Why must you do this, Elizabeth? Don’t you understand that this umbrella will be spoiled if you keep stepping on it?”Β  😯

Stop it…….


Just put me in the car

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 14, 2008

In this hot afternoon, my little girl is screaming every now and then insisting she wants to go out. Oh! That’s too much. As mummy just bring her to the wet market this morning. :roll:

So, my maid is forced to take her into my car and let her play in it. This is the usual trick mummy used to tease my little naughty whenever she insisted to go out. This can actually make her quiet. May be she assumed that she is going out.

Each time, Mummy really glad that she stop screaming. But, mummy is a bit worried that she might “destroy” my car.Whenever little Lizzy is inside the car, she will press this, pull that, hit this, kick that. That’s a real mess. And things get worst when she was not satisfied with this “dead” car.

She will ask mummy to start the car, then she will start laughing and enjoying the fun of seeing there are things moving or lights turning on and off when she press and push those buttons and control panels in the car. 😯

In this case, mummy will need to replace the engines or transmissions of my old car anytime from now. Luckily, there is midwest auto recycling.


Fish Ball

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 14, 2008

My girl loves to eat fish balls now. In fact, I realized it about a month ago during Chinese New Year time. That’s the first time I let her tried fish balls. And, she keep asking for more once she has tried it. It seems fish ball is truly yummy to her.

Of course, I cut this small balls into even small pieces as I don’t want my little princess to get chuck. So I will always cook soup with fish balls in it. And, at least 10 of the fish balls has been reserved for this little cutie as she can take about 5 for each meal. Sometimes, I will cook the fish balls with tofus and carrots as Elizabeth like tofu too.

A dish of mix tofus, pork, fish balls, mushrooms and carrots

By the way, mummy is glad that her little girl can eat “Lok Lok” together with mummy and daddy now as she can take her favorite fish balls or the tiny bird’s eggs.


In the car

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 13, 2008

I can hardly sit still in the car. I will demand to sit in the front seat with mummy and I will try my best to drive together with daddy too. Somehow, I will stay with “kakak” or granny at the back seats if I can’t go to the front.

In this case, I will take down the sunshades. It blocks my vision. I enjoy the views outside the car. There are so many things to see! hahaha…

Now, I learn to open the window. It’s easy cause I just pressed on one of the button on the armrest, then it will scroll down automatically. However, daddy never allow me to do that.

Oh, Dad! Please… Once the window is open, I can feel the air or touch the rain with both of my hands out, touch the ventshades, leave my head out and have a clearer look of everything out there.

“No way! Just sit down and stop touching all the buttons including those that control the sound system!” *Daddy Shouting with the both eyes rolling up* :roll:


Sit up straight and read

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 13, 2008

I am reading magazines almost everyday. And, I loves fashion magazines. Yes! I admitted that I am so vain. I can read more than 20 minutes sometimes. Of course, I can’t just sit straight for that long. So, I will change my sitting position to sort of laying down while I am still flipping the magazines.

Am I flipping it too hard? No… not possible. May be these are low quality, thin paper. Ya! That’s why it tears… πŸ˜›

Somehow, I never lay down while reading. Mummy says, ” That’s bad your my eyesights, girl!”

“You better sit straight up while reading, so that you have less chances to wear spectacles.”

“You hate spectacles, don’t you?”

“Of course! I only like sunglasses! As wearing sunglasses is so stylish (Check it out here). But, spectacles makes mummy, daddy and granny look so ugly and funny. So not for me, please… ” πŸ˜›

OMG! So vain! Like father like daughter! πŸ˜†


Mummy believes in Attitude

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 2, 2008

Most parents will think that education is very important for their kids. So, parents nowadays seems willing to spend so much just to make sure their kids have good education background to support their future working needs later on.

Even though I don’t think good education equals to successful career, but I still want my girl to complete her basic education. As I do agree that people with higher education level always got a better chance to secure a better job like those listed in the executive recruiting firm.

However, there is a saying among the baby boomer in our society, “It’s common to have those in the A class working for those in the last class when we are all out to the working society.” Oh! No offense, please! But, I have seen many real life examples that support this saying too.

Thus, I believe that attitude is the most important criteria for a person to become successful. As a result, I always emphasize more on how to introduce the right attitudes of a successor to my little girl rather than concentrating on the formal education.


Poh Poh and Gong Gong

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 2, 2008

Today, Elizabeth get a chance to play with her cousins. “Poh Poh” and “Gong Gong”Β  bring both Justin and Isabelle to Elizabeth house today. They will kind of like strangers in the beginning. But, they manage to play together later on. Somehow, they are not really close. πŸ˜₯

Anyway, “Poh Poh” bring along Ribena Pastilles for Justin. Then, 3 of them share the sweets. Of course Elizabeth loves it as it’s just the same old familiar taste. I think I’ve told you before that Elizabeth is drinking Ribena everyday instead of plain water. It’s still the same until now.

Anyway, mummy is so glad that Elizabeth can perfectly recognized who is her “Gong Gong” and “Poh Poh” right now. She has pointed to the correct one among many of us as I asked her who is “Gong Gong” and who is “Poh Poh”. Clever!

“Gong Gong” and “Poh Poh” must be very happy to be well recognized too! πŸ˜‰


International Standard

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 2, 2008

I used to complaint about the “Waldorf Method” kindy is so expensive. But, I just get to know that the price of the kindy that my nephew and niece planning to enter in Thailand is even scary. I have a simple question here.

“Will you spend 1K per month just to send your kids to kindy?”

My answer is: “I will. But, I don’t think I can afford.” Just imagine this is only the beginning level. I am even shock when I get to know the school fees for primary level. It’s 55K each for a year. So, Amy would have to spend more 100k per year for the education of Justin and Isabelle! 😯

I truly salute to Amy. She is so brave and capable, yet a great mummy! πŸ˜›

Frankly, I think it’s perfectly normal to spend 100K a year for business funding. But definitely not for primary school fees. In fact, I used to wish that Elizabeth can join those kids of expatriates and study in the International School. So that she can learn more things and have fix and normal schooling time.

But now, I think local school is good enough. πŸ˜›


I don’t miss you

Posted by Everyday Healy on March 2, 2008

Daddy is still in Port Dickson. And, every time daddy call back he will surely asked: ” What is Lizzy doing now?” But,Β  how come my little princess never ask :” Where’s daddy?” hehe…

Of course I know she can’t talk yet. But, mummy knows her well. As usual she will look into the study room whenever she miss her daddy. This is because daddy is always in the study room whenever he is at home.

However, it’s kind of strange that she just never did for these 2 days. It’s quite impossible that this little girl just forget about daddy all of the sudden. I suspect that may be she really understand what mummy and daddy told her.

“Girl, Daddy will be away for 2 days. He will only be back at Sunday night. ”

LOL! This is even ridiculous, isn’t it?Β  hahaha……

Anyway, mummy is so glad that she did not cry for daddy. At least that save up lots of mummy’s energy and time keep singing, dancing and making silly faces to make the crying little girl stop crying and start smiling. πŸ˜›

Somehow, I have learn that soon she will be old and clever enough to cry for daddy and mummy whenever she is away from us. LOL! Is that means mummy and daddy is going to lost our “Me” time soon? πŸ˜₯

Poor daddy, you must have miss little Elizabeth so much! But, mummy miss daddy like crazy! hahaha……
