Bento #2

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 30, 2008

Today, mummy did not prepare cuttie meal for little Elizabeth. But, look at what she ate for dinner last night…

Nice? Still rice! But, rice in tiny moon, flower, apple, mango and chili shapes. And, a “butterfly” by the side which I made up from fried Broccoli and steam tomato. I know! It looks more like flower! LOL!

Anyway, I thought she likes butterfly. Still, she split out the broccoli, never take the tomato, but finished up the fish very quickly. I don’t even have time to tell her that the pieces of fish meat is a “Dolphin”. Er… I supposed it looks like Dolphin, doesn’t it? Hahahaha……

End up, I have to add in a lot more fish and rice, but take out the vegetables. Also, I don’t expect her to give me any response, if I put the Hydroxycut hardcore right in front of her. As she has still not come to the age of getting excited with the weight lose products. Only when she become a lady! πŸ˜›

But, it’s so sad that she doesn’t even show any encouraging response when I bring this “Bento” to her. That’s something I don’t expect. What a good work I have did! :(


What did she say?

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 30, 2008

Mummy enjoyed my motherhood so much these days. Elizabeth is so cute now. She started to talk. And, mummy will surely see her sweet and lovely smile when she said something new.Then, she will keep repeating it for a while. I guess she is proud of herself too. πŸ˜›

She will be very happy to say “Hi” and “Bye”. I can see that she really like these 2 words. Somehow, she will mostly say “Hi” to the insects or animals, and “roar” to the people when she first meet them. Er… It should be the other way round, baby! Hahaha……

I also heard her said “dance” today. Finally, she can pronounce her hobby correctly! Congrats, Honey! And, mummy were super duper impressed when you answered me:” OK!”

Why did you said so? Oh! Mummy said : ” Don’t take, ya.”, when you want to grab something on the table which belongs to one of the bank officer. So, you answered me :”Ok!” . Immediately, the bank officer laughed. Of course, mummy is smiling too.

Oh! In fact, she can also say “Where did it go”, “take”, “drink”, “eat”, “egg”, “dog”, “cat”, “car”, “ball”, “tree”, “two”, “three”, “four”, “ten”, “moon”, “star”, “owl”, “nana (banana)”, “nonald (McDonald)”, milk, “bound (playground)”, book, bird, daddy, mummy, “mah”(granny — my mum), “poh” (granny — my MIL), “gong” (grandpa), “cho” (great granny), “Gu” (uncle — my brother) . That’s all mummy can remember by now. But, there are actually more… πŸ˜›

Mummy is so proud of you, baby! πŸ˜›


I never get Bored

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 29, 2008

It’s Monday again. But, It seems not a boring Monday for Elizabeth. She was happily woke up, bathe, taking her lunch, playing hide and seek and now she is laughing at the Little Einstein Cartoon Show. Mummy is glad you are happy.

At least, this little baby won’t mess up the house. Hahaha……

Look what she have done when she was bored!

This is the box which mummy keep nice plastic or paper bags for daily use. So, the bags will have to be all over the floor before she can get in there. When she was out, then she took out all the books from the bookshelvesΒ  one by one, and squeezed them into the box instead of putting back all the paper and plastic bags!



I will follow Barney

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 28, 2008

Elizabeth just came back from school. You might say:”Oh Great! What did she learn from school today?” Mummy’s answer :”Oh! Playing with drums, gym ball, rhythm sticks, jingle bell, dancing with scarf and puppets on the fingers… And so much more which not according to instructions. ” Hahaha……

So many toys there. And, she likes to play with them all. Not only those that teacher used for the lesson.LOL! And, she practically mix up the performance in Barney and those in the class when she heard the same song today. Barney wins of course! Hahaha……


Practise on preparing nice Bento

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 26, 2008

Many blogger mummies are preparing very nice Bento for their kids. These kiddie meals has bears, flowers, octopus in it. I love them all! Elizabeth might not need Bento now, as she is not going to school. But, mummy can still prepare lovely cartoon meals at home for this little princess.

So, we were out in Gurney Plaza last night searching for some Bento gadgets. Thanks to daddy for being so thoughtful! Daddy actually take us together to Gurney while he is having work appointments there. Mummy appreciates it so much!

Thus, I promised myself I am going to create something nice for Elizabeth and to show daddy. TaaDaa…

Hello Kitty Rice! With pieces of fried egg as eyes and nose. And, the bitter gout as flower by the ear. Not bad, aye? πŸ˜›

But, as it was ready, my little princess already fall a sleep for her afternoon nap. :(

At first, it was a whole fried egg like this…

But, no eyes, no nose and no flower cause no seaweed or anything else with sharper color. So, I tried on rice. Looks like the Hello Kitty non stick frying pan (only RM12.90) can be quite useful!

Now, I realized that I need much more gadget to make a nice Bento. Never mind. I can slowly collect them one by one. Now, I will have to gather more pizza, cake and cookie recipes. Suddenly, I am so dedicated to get a bigger oven and start baking and cooking too!

I feel like I am a wonderful mother by preparing nice food for my little princess! πŸ˜‰


When I get up from the tub

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 26, 2008

This morning, she said: “No”, when she is asked to get out from the bathtub. Instead, she wants mummy to get in there. But, It’s not my time to bathe yet. So? Don’t worry, a simple trick might work. :)

Let go of the water. As the bathtub almost dry up, little Elizabeth is calling mummy to carry her up. It works! Hahaha…… Just show them a few times of the sequences on how we should bathe. From getting wet, putting soap, draining the water, bringing them the towel, dry them up and dress up. They will get it real soon! πŸ˜›

And, she is simply lovely when she willing let mummy wraps her up with her towel.

How about that?

Great post! But, it’s going to drop anytime!


This is even worse! You will know what exactly I mean when you stands up, baby! Haha……


Terribly Tantrum

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 25, 2008

Oh! My new hair style. Mummy did it. With this hair style, I look exactly like daddy. Either like daddy or mummy, I am still pretty. That’s what mummy said.

“But, stop shouting and crying, Elizabeth! Enough!” 😯

“I will start shouting loud and crying if you don’t obey!” That’s little Elizabeth command.

Since this morning, she has been crying and shouting, about every 20 to 30 minutes once. Besides, one moment she is stacking these wooden dolls happily, lining them up too. The next moment, she is throwing them just because she can’t put them back together!

Mummy stopped her, immediately “Waaaa……”. She is crying and shouting loud again! How am I going to discipline her? Out of a sudden, she got such bad temper. It all begins this week. What am I going to do?

By the way, she cried for daddy. She shouted: ” D! D!” and even pick up mummy’s mobile phone and called: “D! D! ” Don’t expect daddy to “save” you! 😯

Oh… how about daddy taking care of Elizabeth in this Raya Holiday and Mummy just pack my luggage, buy ticket, travel insurance and leave for a vacation? Oh Gosh! Mummy really need to escape if you continue your kicking, struggling, shouting, crying, rolling on the floor, and pulling kakak’s hair!

Anyone? Some advises on how to discipline this tantrum baby?


What happened to the milk?

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 24, 2008

One of my friend called yesterday. I told her my girl was sick for the past few days. She immediately asked me: “Will it be the milk?” Of course not!

But until now, 53, 000 infants in China have become sick after drinking formula laced with a chemical used in plastics called “Melamine”, which can also make milk appear to be full of protein. That’s Alarming! Terrifying the mothers in the whole world indeed.

Our health Ministry also started to ban the dairy products which contain Melamine. Quite a number of the dairy products available in the Malaysian market were tested and the first out of 3 in the list which is safe to consume is already in the Star newspaper today.

But, Bonmil — the organic formula milk which Elizabeth is taking now is not in the first list. Somehow, I already called its nutrition hotline. And, they confirmed that the DHA, SA or AA is imported from The United States and the skim milk is from New Zealand. it has nothing to do with China dairy products manufacturers. *sigh* Is it good enough? Or shall I call 03-88833655 for further information from our health ministry?

And, thanks God that Vitagen is safe. I think Yakult should be alright as well. I know they are your favorite! Mummy has no reason to take them away from you, don’t worry, baby! πŸ˜›

I really feels so sorry for those babies who was admitted or died because of poisoned by the milk formulation with Melamine in it. Those manufacturers in China were so dare to make such a move. Totally irresponsible! Murderers! :(


Give me one Ringgit

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 23, 2008

Elizabet’s condition has been stable down. Mummy is quite sure that I will have a good night sleep later. But, it seems mummy had made a mistake. There are actually 3 shots of antibiotics in total, which means little Elizabeth still have to bear another injection by tomorrow. So sorry, darling! πŸ˜₯

Don’t worry about tomorrow. Let’s go to pasar malam, ok? So, we went to pasar malam together just now. I am shock when she actually asked for money and wanted to pay the stall owner in exchange for a cooking set that she has aimed for it.

At first, she cried and pointing at the toys displayed on the floor. It’s a cooking set. I am afraid she might put those things in her mouth and the led is not safe. So, we just passed the stall.

Then, she started to point at the money in mummy’s hand. Alright! One ringgit. The next thing, she turned and point to that stall. As “kakak” bring her back there, she is trying to pay. Ha! Clever, aye? One Ringgit for the whole cooking set. That’s even brilliant! Hahahaha……

It’s a total surprise! Obviously, she has learned how to use the money. So, never underestimate a kid intelligence! πŸ˜‰

But, can you stop calling “Mi”! Look… she is calling me again. She just keep calling “mummy” to accompany her with all her daily activities now. Oh! I need a break, baby! How I wish I am spending my day only with daddy in one of the romantic St. Barts villa rentals now.

Daddy, please buy me some “me” time, would you? πŸ˜›


Keep drinking

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 22, 2008

This past Saturday and Sunday was a long weekend. Why? Cause Elizabeth was sick again! Mummy was so upset. As usual, we will hope that the bad things will past us by real soon. The bad news is… Her fever is still quite high! πŸ˜₯

She was having very high fever and shivering terribly yesterday midnight. Luckily, mummy still have 1 spare Diclofenac Sodium which mummy used to push into her rectum to stop her fever.

Thanks God. It works. This morning, mummy quickly sent her to her paediatrician. Dr. Sim said it’s throat ulcer. That’s why she stop drinking water. And, the high fever is supposed to cause by bacteria infection. Obviously, little Elizabeth need antibiotic injection. She cried while injected. Poor girl! As there is another injection tomorrow. :(

Well, at least she starts drinking water again today.

Β Β 

That’s right! Keep drinking… Just concentrate more on the TV. Mummy and granny will keep playing with you too. So that you can forgot about your sore throat and drink more water. That’s all mummy asked for. Love you, baby!

And, don’t worry. You will be back to normal and full of strength again in no time.Β  :)


More meat please

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 18, 2008

Mummy considered myself quite particular about what goes into little Elizabeth’s tiny mouth. Mummy believes we are what we eat. Eat right and healthy food is very much like buying family health insurance. It’s an advanced planning for future life protection. Thus, I prefer her to take more vegetables and fruits.

“Oh! Fruits? Yummy! But, vegetables? No, please!”

That’s Elizabeth. She stopped taking vegetables, especially the green leaf vegetables long ago. Instead, she is taking chicken and chopped pork. :(

This is Steamed Chopped meat with soya source. Her new favorite dish to go with white rice. And, she is taking lots of herbal chicken soup too. That’s good! At least, it’s nutritious and quite easy to prepare. πŸ˜›


One after another

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 18, 2008

“Staying at home everyday is simply boring, mummy!”

“Alright. How about drawing? You like to draw, don’t you?”

To be precise, she is learning how to close the pen cap. Of course, she also starts making lines and circles. And, she likes mummy to draw faces or anything else for her too. Obviously, she got new skills now.

But, not all that good either. As she actually draw on her own hands and legs. Her dresses, pants and shirts were “under attack” too. Not just that. Our sofa has became another victim of this new form of art. I am afraid even our walls are in danger too. LOL! Hahahahaha……

“Stop it!”

“Affirmative, Mi. I will stop it. Now… Let’s start the plastic bags party, “kak”!”

Gosh! One after another. Elizabeth………. *shout*

So sorry, “kakak”. :(


I want real Organ

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 14, 2008

Today, teacher was not around. So, she canceled the class. No music circle. Now, Elizabeth is watching TV. Mummy is not really in a good mood today. Thus, I am not sure are we still going out.

Mummy feels like washing car. I am sure you don’t mind joining mummy, right? Or you prefer to play your small piano or dancing together at home. Somehow, your little piano obviously is not attractive anymore. You prefer to play the big organ in “Poh Poh” house. right?

Look at this girl. She really enjoyed playing the organ in “Poh Poh” house last weekend. So proud too. LOL! πŸ˜›

Frankly, an organ is just like the commodities trades in futures trading for me, a total stranger. I know nothing about it! Ha! But, one thing for sure. Elizabeth just don’t know how to play a song yet. Thus, mummy is not going to spend on an organ. Ha! Luckily, “Poh Poh” house got one. Lucky Elizabeth! Hehe……


Shop for Red Car

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 12, 2008

It’s Friday again. Tomorrow we have a wedding dinner to attend. Mummy dressed you up nicely, k? So, you should be happy with the program for this weekend. In fact, little Elizabeth keep asking mummy to bring her out these 2 days.

As a result, mummy brought her to Tesco yesterday. She was dancing in front of the “Artist Gallery” immediately after she heard the music playing in it. Cute! But, she stopped before mummy managed to video it. LOL! And, it’s quite easy to take care of her as she seems enjoy sitting in the shopping cart. πŸ˜›

Of course, there is always something new for her after shopping. Be it food or toys. She got a big bucket of “Cadbury Bites”. That’s her favorite junk. And, 2 small red cars, 1 small red and 1 tiny red helicopter in a set. All red. As her music circle lesson on this coming Sunday need a red car. :)

Β Obviously, she has lost her helicopter wings in just one day. OMG!



Posted by Everyday Healy on September 11, 2008

Hey, man! This is Hip Hop! Cool, aye? Oh! Yeah… Hahahaha…

That’s her new cap from SODA KIDS. Mummy finally found one cap for little Elizabeth which quite suits a little girl like her. So, let’s go out together for some outdoor team sports! But, may be you should change your dress first. Wrong matching. Hahaha……

Anyway, look at this girl! She likes cap. But, you can never see her put it on when she is out. She just like to wear it at home. LOL!

Daddy always said: “My girl is also my boy.” Huh? I think he is absolutely right. As we have a very vain yet sporty baby. She loves to run. Always jumping and climbing high and low. Crazy over playing basketball, football and plastic balls. Ha! And, full of energy all the time. That’s why she need a cap! πŸ˜›

Anyway, I can see that she will surely join some sports games when she grow up. But, how about cheerleading? You like dancing, don’t you? Mummy can get you some pom poms now if you want, so that you can start practicing now. Fun, aye? :)

“Who will be the coach, Mi?”

“Just Mi and D.”

“But, you people knows nothing about cheerleading!”

“Ops! May be we can start with some simple actions, you know… like jumping, twisting your waist, nodding your head, and swinging the pom poms first?” Hahahahaha…

Silly mummy! *Slap Slap, right and left*


I blow…

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 10, 2008

Raining! Raining! Raining! Heavy rain is on its way! :(

Elizabeth… do you still remember what have you done last weekend? We went shopping. we were at the Queensbay mall mooncake exhibition. There was nice pavilion. You even sat on its stairs to finish your Ribena.

Excuse me… Can I take my Ribena here?Β  Just a minute, k?


Ah…… It’s done. Yum! Yum! Β 

But, no one can take my Ribena away from me! 😯

So cute! By the way, we bought lanterns, so many lanterns home. So, do you enjoy “watching” lanterns, baby? Sorry that you are not allow to touch the lanterns. Mummy afraid you will get burned.

Alright! If I can’t touch, then I’ll just blow them off! Hahaha…..

That was last Sunday night. We all enjoy that night, especially little Elizabeth. She really laugh and play the whole night long. But, not much picture has been took. As mummy need to take care of her. All because of daddy’s phone calls. Stop ringing, will you! LOL!

So, this is all about our mini mooncake party without mooncake. Hahahaha……


Dreaming in my Maclaren

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 5, 2008

Liz has a stroller. But, you can never see her sitting in her stroller whenever she is out. You might said,” What a waste!” However, it’s like a bicycle or car for her at home. So, at least it is not wasted! Hahaha……

Liz enjoyed being pushed around at home with stroller. Now, she even learned to fasten the seat belt. I think that’s a good training. Does it means soon mummy can get her a car seat? :)

Anyway, her Maclaren is really useful. Something that can cheers her up and help to gives us some peaceful moment too. As this is what happened sometimes.

Even though not most of the time, but it’s quite often. Sweet dream, aye? So, what’s in your dream, baby? Chocolates? Baby Bob? Teddy Bears? Playground? Flying in the air plane? Or Caribbean cruises. Ops… That’s mummy’s dream too. πŸ˜›



Posted by Everyday Healy on September 5, 2008

Since July, little Liz always get sick. Frankly, that’s uneasy for mummy. So, mummy finally decided to let her take some health supplements. I am still wondering what’s best for Liz. Somehow, I started with VIDAYLIN MINIBEAR. As Liz dislike Appeton and Seven Seas.

Liz loves bears. So, each day one bear.Β  But, the mini bear gummies is actually for those above 2 years old. It’s true that Elizabeth just can’t swallow it as a whole. So, how about cutting it into 4 little pieces? That’s just nice. πŸ˜›

Little Elizabeth like it so much! Yum yum! In fact, mummy chose it for 2 major reasons. Firstly, it is imported from Germany. Mummy simply trust the technology and quality in Germany more than those produced locally.

Secondly, it’s yummy taste guaranteed. I think taste is very important for toddlers. Be it good or bad, kids only eat the delicious one. By the way, these gummies includes the goodness of spinach, carrot, tomato, beetroot and artichoke. And, Liz is taking the one which is only enriched with vitamin C, not multivitamins.

She started taking it about 2 weeks ago. Since then, she will mostly “poop” more than twice each day.Β  Sometimes, 3 times. LOL! And, only fine discharge. Absolutely no diarrhea. :)


Her 21th Month

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 4, 2008

Today is Liz’s 21th month old. Time flies. Just another 3 months, there comes her 2nd birthday. πŸ˜›

She is growing tall and plum now. So, may be a Hop Ball could be a prefect birthday gift for her. As she loves ball. And, more exercise on the Hop Ball will makes her healthier and slimmer.

Anyway, this little big tummy is always full of laughter and smile. Lovely! However, there are times when she loose control. Obviously, she has started to show her temper. LOL! But, she is very clingy now. She will surely look for my maid whenever she goes to bed or just wake up from her sleep.

Somehow, she is still very close to mummy and daddy. Receiving her kiss early in the morning is the sweetest thing for mummy and daddy now. Everyday is a great new day for us. As her kiss really brighten up our day. πŸ˜›

By now, she speaks quite clear and start picking up the single word quite fast. Besides, she actually watches lots of TV. And, still very active. Just as daddy always said: “She needs more activities.”.

Somehow, mum and dad got not enough time. Don’t worry, girl! We still try our best. At least, you are still out every weekends. Enjoying the beautiful views and facilities in nice environment, visiting your grandparents, shopping and playing at the playground. πŸ˜›


I am Hard Rock Sweet Heart

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 4, 2008

Mummy is supposed to blog about Elizabeth’s 3 other new dresses. But, I should blog about one precious gift before I forget. Daddy bought it for little Liz while he was in Beijing.

Yeah… Hard Rock! But, it’s a little big for my lovely little sweet heart. Nothing to worry though. She is growing fast. By the way, this is her second piece of Hard Rock T shirts. The first one was from Egypt.

But, this baby blue baby T is absolutely prettier than the one from Egypt. Lovely! I also like the wording, “100% Hard Rock Sweet Heart”. Fantastic in describing my girl. Good taste, daddy! πŸ˜‰


My New Princess Collections

Posted by Everyday Healy on September 3, 2008

Last weekend (31th of August), daddy went for his company roadshow at Prangin Mall. Mummy, “kakak” and Liz went shopping. Instead of walking from Prangin Mall to Gama Supermarket, we took trishaw. Somehow, Liz does not show any sign of excitement. :(

Luckily she was jumping for joy when we reached Gama Supermarket. Mummy little shopping queen really loves shopping. And, beautiful dresses is just as hot as jobs in Atlanta for Liz.

She will twist and turn while holding both ends of the dress whenever she put on pretty dress. She will never miss the word: “Wow!” too. LOL! So, this vain little girl got 5 new dresses after we finished shopping. πŸ˜›


Mummy especially favor these 2 dresses from “Bino Natural”. Once she put them on, they really make her look so exclusive, just like a little princess. Unique color! Quality material! Fantastic cutting! And, awesome design! Moreover, half price. πŸ˜‰



Posted by Everyday Healy on September 2, 2008

Good news! She said: “Mi”, “Ma” and “Cho”! What’s that mean? Simple! “Mi” means mummy. “Ma” for “Ah Mah”, which is grandma. And, “Cho” refers to great granny in Hokkien.

She started to call “Cho” and “Ma” last week. My granny was happy. But, My mum was very excited! Truly happy. Thus, keep chasing Liz, bagging her to call “Ma” all the time. LOL!

When did Liz call “Mi”? That’s the big news! Yeah… That’s the sweetest word mummy ever heard. She started calling “Mi” about 2 weeks ago. Mummy afraid she might stop calling after a week like what happened previously. So, let’s wait and see.

Now, mummy confirms that this is my new name, specially created for and call by little Liz. “Mi” is good enough. And, it’s really so touch and extremely precious. When I first heard the loud and clear “Mi” came out from Liz’s tiny little mouth, that moment… “Smoke gets in my eyes”. Tears that cherish my happiness!

“Mi” loves you, darling! πŸ˜›

How about “dad”? She called “Pa” at first. “Pa” means daddy in Mandarin. But, daddy prefers “D”. So, daddy keep teaching her “D” for the last few days. He did it! Now, Liz called “D”. πŸ˜›

By the way, she can pronounce “Poh” ( granny in Mandarin) which refers to my MIL. And, she calls her uncle Bill “Gu”, that’s uncle in Hokkien. Somehow, she just can’t voice out the word “Gong”, even though she tried so hard. Poor Liz, she likes her grandpa so much. I am sure she wanted so much to pronounce that. Don’t be upset, girl! It’s ok. You are doing great.
