I like My Cousins

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 28, 2009

Mummy was quite worried this morning. As she cried and refused to go to school. I guess the fell really frighten her. Somehow, she was smiling while moving forward to mummy’s car and happily waving good bye to her teacher too while leaving the school after school hours. Now, mummy has no worry at all. As Elizabeth has secure her front tooth. It’s still there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In fact, little Elizabeth was having a great time, a really great time playing with her cousins on Saturday night.

At first, she was playing rough with Justin before we go to dinner. She kept sticking with him in and out. They are trying to eat the same food at dinner too. What a “Gang”! LOL!

So when mummy thought she was simply more click with Justin…

She changed her mind and was enjoying herself playing the cooking stuffs with Isabelle after we came back from dinner. :)

And look! She can even communicate well with her “ku ku” that night. Eventually, she just want to follow her “Gong Gong” home. Unfortunately, she got music class in the next morning. So, we let her cry for a while as they all leave.

But, it’s a good idea to let her stay with “Poh Poh” for one or two weeks when my SIL come back for holiday again. So that mummy and daddy can go to fantastic places like panama city florida to have a romantic vacation for only 2 of us. Hahaha……

By the way, It’s kind of amaze to see little Elizabeth playing like a kid now. She definitely need more friends.


I want Daddy “Sayang”

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 27, 2009

Yesterday was a lucky day. Luckily she never lost her teeth. Luckily she can still eat. Luckily she seems did not suffer much pain. God bless!

Anyway, mummy absolutely felt the pain. When her principle said sorry, mummy replied:”It’s ok.” Mummy knew it was an accident. School principle was kind of concern too. Called again in the afternoon to find out about her condition. Somehow, “Please take good care of Elizabeth.” That’s what mummy is going to say when I send little Elizabeth back to school again.

She fell. One of her classmate knocked her and she fell onto the floor. Deep wound on the gum and keep bleeding until about 4pm yesterday. One of her front tooth still shaking. Mummy really wish that this front tooth can stay until it’s time for the milk teeth to go.

Sorry darling! You have been so brave. Never complain or cry for the pain since the moment mummy picked you up from school. But, I know you ain’t feel nothing. As you keep looking for daddy once you get home yesterday. As you woke up this morning……

Liz:”Where’s daddy?”

Liz:”I want daddy sayang.”

Mummy:”Alright. Daddy sayang. Daddy already go to work. Mummy promise that you will get to see daddy tonight. Even daddy was late last night, but he had bought you Jelly. It’s in the fridge. Want to try?”


Poor Girl! :(

We love you, baby!


Anyone want to cut your hair?

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 23, 2009

She did this last week. After finished reading so many books and playing with all the other toys, little Elizabeth just don’t feel like going to bed yet. So she got this idea of pretending to be a barber once she finished fixing the puzzle sets on occupations.

I think you did it so well, baby! You can really be a hair stylist if you want to. See… your customer is smiling. Very happy with the cut. Thanks to Kak Sue. ๐Ÿ˜‰

By the way, this is a fake scissors from her toy doctor set. Next time we use a real scissors, ok? So, who’s next? Hahahaha……

Well, you can still be a doctor or nutritionist pretending giving Kak Sue a thorough health check or introducing the best diet pill to her. In fact, you are encourage to try many other jobs besides being a hair stylist. Playing pretend is always a good way to learn. ๐Ÿ˜›


Art Class 5

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 22, 2009

We just came back from the Art Class.ย  2 hours ago…

Mummy:” Liz, come! Let’s go art class.”

Liz:”No… I don’t want to go.” Then, she just keep shaking her head when mummy asked her “why” again and again. No answer given. So how? give up?

Mummy:”Is it because you don’t like coloring? How about we ask teacher to let you do cut and paste this time?”

Liz:” Yes!”ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

So this is it. No more coloring. It ‘s art and craft and some drawing this time. More materials, paying more fees too, but less hands on. As long as little Elizabeth enjoys it, so be it!ย  :)

Anyway, mummy is still observing. We will try for another 2 months, ok? If you really don’t like art that much, then we can stop the class as you wish.ย  Mummy just want you to know that I will be glad if you can live your life. And, it’s good that you actually know what you want.


My Favourite Large Print

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 21, 2009

Mummy has to read all these 5 books every night now. Mummy like them because they are in large print which suits little ones. Baby like them because they have nice and colorful pictures. :)

And, there are 3 more in the series which mummy will buy for little Elizabeth once I see them in MPH. Be patient, baby. They are out of stock now.ย  :)

Gosh! Mummy should buy gold or rare silver coins. That’s money — a real precious. Somehow, mummy is more than willing to buy more books. They might have no investment value, but they are definitely precious to my little princess.ย  And, the sweet memories of reading together with little Elizabeth are definitely something money can’t buy. :)


My Birthday Party is just 3 weeks away

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 20, 2009

Once she reached home after school, Kak Sue took her bag out from the car as usual. Immediately she pointing at her bag and said:” I want my present.”

Yes! This is the second party pack she get since the last 4 months in school. And, Elizabeth already open it and start using the little presents in it such as glitters glue, note book, and pencil before mummy is free to take a picture ofย  it. :(

Children love party packs. And, many of her classmates have birthday parties in the school. Somehow, little Elizabeth’s birthday is on school holiday. After discussing with her teacher, mummy decided to make a birthday party for her on the last week of school days instead of during holiday camp.

Mummy had yet to decided which day it is. But, It’s only about 3 weeks away. So,we better start thinking about what to put in the party pack? Where to buy a nice party pack or box? Shall we have a clown shaping balloons for the kids? Most importantly, how the cake is going to look like?

Gosh! Sounds like mummy got lots of work to do! But, mummy is more than willing to do so. As long as my little princess is happy. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Let’s go to Hard Rock Hotel

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 19, 2009

I told you we were shopping at Penang Hard Rock Hotel. This was where we were for lunch last Saturday on the 10th of October.

When we drove around the Cafe, Liz saw something and voice out loudly.

Liz:” Micheal Jackson!” What? Mummy quickly turn around. Very observant! It is Micheal Jackson.

So, mummy wanted to take picture for Elizabeth and MJ as we walked out from the Cafe after we had our meal.

Liz:”I want daddy carry!” I thought you like MJ! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

So, this is it. Not the real MJ. But, a big white statue of MJ. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And, may be the statue is kind of scary to little ones. Anyway, baby Elizabeth did had a great time. ( Yeah… It can be hotel, it can be the cinema in the dark or any metal buildings, she will be happy as long as daddy and mummy are hanging out with her. ๐Ÿ˜› )

Well, the food was suck! But, nice environment! Precious outing! As we had daddy, mummy, “mama”, “ah cho” and little Elizabeth. It’s good to have something new in Penang.ย  Hehe……

First time ever. Three of us all together in Hard Rock T. Wonderful memory!ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰


Everything is New

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 18, 2009

Nothing much today even though it’s Deepavali. Daddy busy giving speech in an important occasion of his company. Mummy, Mama and Uncle Bill were shopping in the mall while little Elizabeth was sleeping at home. That’s it for the whole afternoon. :(

Somehow, last weekend was fun! It’s good to have daddy swimming together with little Elizabeth again, right? And, mummy was so glad I found such a lovely new swimsuit for you while we were shopping at Penang Hard Rock Hotel.

So…… Cute! However, the bottom piece is so loose. You just keep pulling it after you went into the water. Hahahaha…… May be mummy should keep this and buy a smaller size for now. Hehe……

New float! New beach ball too! Hooray! But, you are going to have more fun in the real pool, trust mummy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh! You laughter was precious!ย  Thus, mummy’s hand was busy snapping your your pictures while we were laughing together. Thanks to daddy! ๐Ÿ˜›


I have 6 new Books

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 15, 2009

She is reading. Nope! It’s mummy. Since last week until now, mummy is reading each and every of these books for her every night. Yeah… it’s her new books. Thus get so excited and interested. Anyway, mummy finds the Early Readers Large Print Reading Scheme from MPH is good. So, mummy actually get the other 3 in the set for her yesterday.ย  :)

She really loves books. This little wild bee will turn to a well behave Shitzu while mummy was reading for her. Exceptionally patient!ย  So, mummy keep on buying books. I think just give us a few years, the collection ofย  her books might made up a mini library.

And, we hardly throw away books. So including all the books mummy and daddy bought for ourselves, the long distance movers should be laughing, if we called up for packing. Then, daddy will be like “Why are we buying so many books in the first place?” while settling the bills. Hahahahaha……


Art Class Lesson 3 & 4

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 14, 2009

Yesterday, it’s art class again.

Gosh! Dinosaur for girl? What to do, that’s her own request. She told teacher she wanted Dinosaur. So be it. but, this is last week’s work. Teacher drew and outlined for her. And, she said she wanted green. So teacher give her about 14 different shades of green. As she must keep on changing crayons (The consequences of high curiosity and less patient I guess). But, she did it! She colored the whole picture. Amazing! Frankly, mummy was so impressed! Well done, baby! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And, this is yesterday’s work. Two dancing hearts. Again, teacher drew it for her. She colored. Like last week it’s crayon for objects, water color for the background. The choice of colors were so colorful. Really got the dancing mood aye? Mummy like it so much. Teacher said she is kind of a little Picasso. She loves to play with many colors in one object. Should be favoring abstract styles. Wow! Sounds so professional.

Yeah… “It is unique” — the teacher commented. But, this type of child can have very stubborn character. So, it’s just like all the other teachers from school used to comment on Elizabeth, “She knows what she wants”. :(


Wonderful Time after School

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 13, 2009


It was last Friday, little Liz did enjoyed herself so much playing at the McD playground. Climb up the stairs, then slide again and again. Had some nuggets and ice cream too. We spent quite a long time there right after little Elizabeth finished school.

Wow! Very long hours of activities without resting (including school hours). The dark circles under eyes are kind of obvious. Thus, she immediately fell asleep soundly as soon as we reached home without bathing. :)

It should be a great reward for being a good girl and going to school everyday. But definitely not McD every week. How about art class? Little Elizabeth loves her art class. She kind of miss the class. Thus, at the moment it’s still a form of reward to her. So here we go for the reward now. ๐Ÿ˜‰


I don’t want to “pom pom”

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 9, 2009

ย A short conversation after she came back from school yesterday.

Liz:”Mummy, I don’t want to “pom pom”.”

Mummy:”Then? You want to sleep?”


Quiet for a while. Then, continue talking…

Liz:”And, you must watch Barney, ok? You watch Barney, ok? We watch Barney together?”

Mummy:”Huh? Barney? I don’t want to watch Barney.”

Liz:”We must watch Barney, ok?”

Mummy:”Why must I? I don’t like to watch Barney.”

Liz:”Er… You let me watch Barney, then I go “pom pom”, ok? Immediately she showed her cheeky smile too.

Mummy:” Ah…… You are trying to tease mummy, don’t you? No!”



Liz:”Yes!” Kind of determined.

Mummy:”No! You don’t have to go “pom pom” now. Just sleep. I don’t mind.”

Then, mummy walked out of the room.

After 5 minutes, she called:” Mummy… I want to “pom pom”. Hahahahaha…… Mummy wins! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Chop Chop A to Z

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 8, 2009

Last 2 days, little Elizabeth was kind of bored cause mummy had stop her from watching TV. Sorry, darling! But, mummy really got to do something. As the TV has taken away your interests on tracing ABCs, coloring, playing cooking stuffs and so on.ย  :(

May be because you are too “familiar” with all the old toys? Let’s go to ToyRUs. So, mummy bought this for her last Saturday at ToyRUs.

She chose it herself. And, mummy thought:” It was great! This is a good tool to learn spelling.” Look! How much she enjoyed chopping from A to Z.

She certainly loves chop chop! But, this set of A to Z chops seems attractive to her only for the first 2 days. :roll:


I can spell my name

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 5, 2009

Time flies. Her 3rd birthday is just 2 months away. At this age, she still can’t speak clearly. The pronunciation for any words which started with “L” is especially difficult for her. The “L” sound will mostly sound like “W” when it came out from her little mouth. :)

Somehow, she is kind of proud that she can spell her name now.

She should be proud. As “Elizabeth” is kind of long. Just don’t ask mummy why “Elizabeth” among all the other fantastic baby girl names. At least, it is a popular name. ๐Ÿ˜‰

She is getting more sociable too. she will answer every question being asked by strangers. She will talk to strangers too. Just in a softer voice tone. What a big move that certainly worth cheering! Of course, she will be more talkative ifย  it’s a kid in her age, especially boys.

In fact, she always said she is a boy now, if being asked weather she is aย  girl or a boy. Ya! She is kind of rough sometimes. So, boys made good companion to this active little girl. And, her imaginary friend is always John. Again, it’s the baby boy names. Luckily, she still got her feminine side. As she prefers to wear dresses and feel like a princess lately.ย  *Sigh*

Besides, she loves to use the word “Because” and “I forgot”. I guess she can easily use up to 20 times a day in her sentences. So, can she build good sentences? Strong vocabulary but wrong sequences all the time. So, only mummy and daddy will understand what she means most of the time. Hahahaha……..

Lastly, she is good at watching others now. Anything we did wrong, she will point it out with the frowning look. LOL! And, kind of good in reasoning too. She will accepts all the reasons that mummy gives quite well. On the other hand, she will find all sorts of excuses (lots of creative one) to get what she wants. :roll:


My “Unicorn”

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 4, 2009

Mummy and some other mummies of Elizabeth’s friends planned to have a lantern party at the public garden near by our house yesterday night specially for the Mid Autumn Festival. Little Elizabeth was looking forward for it. She loves party. She also asked for the animal shape lantern. So, mummy drove out before noon to get her one.

Liz:”Wow! Unicorn!” As soon as she saw it after she wake up from the afternoon nap.

Mummy:”Nice, aye?”

Liz:” Nice! But, I want Dinosaur!”

Mummy:”There is no Dinosaur.”

Liz:” ……” :roll:

Then, we go shopping somewhere around 5pm. By 8pm, daddy said:” Outside is raining.” So no choice. We called the party off . :(ย  But, continue shopping. Hehe……

So, let’s light up the “unicorn” tonight!

Little Elizabeth was kind of excited. But only for 5 to 10 minutes. Then, she said it was hot. So, daddy helped her to hang it high up.

After that, she enjoyed talking, jumping, dancing and playing with shadows. Mummy’s shadow, daddy’s shadow, her own shadow and the colorful lantern’s shadow.

After all, there is no rule saying that we must carry the lantern and walk around. Hahahaha……


Can I wash my hands now?

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 3, 2009

It was the Thursday art class time.

Teacher:” Today we do painting with our fingers, ok?”

So, teacher let little Elizabeth choose her own preference of color. One at a time. Putting them on her fingers. Then, she was happily dabbing. 5 minutes later…

Liz:” Teacher, I want to wash hands.”

Teacher:” Wait until you have finished your drawing, ok?”

She did nod her head. Then, about 5 minutes later…

Liz:”I want to wash my hands, teacher.”

Another 10 minutes later…

Liz:”Wash my hands now?”

Another 10 minutes later…

Liz:”I wan to wash my hands now.”

Teacher:”Alright! Wash your hands first, then only we continue drawing, ok?”

Liz:”Ok.” ๐Ÿ˜€

Somehow, as teacher put some colors on her fingers again, immediately she said:” I want to wash my hands again.” As soon as she has made the first few dabs. Then, keep making the same request within every 10 minutes until the paper is full and the drawing considered complete. Hahahaha……

Wow! Anyone will think that may be teacher has beautiful Grohe faucets in the toilet. Thus, making washing hands a wonderful experience. Or may be little Elizabeth just can’t stand the mess. Kind of. But it’s more of her strange hobby of enjoy washing hands all the time actually. Kakakakaka……

Even if mummy was the one who used the WC when we were outside, still she wants to wash her hands. The water and hand soap are simply too irresistible, aye? ๐Ÿ˜‰


Art Class Lesson 2

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 2, 2009

You were rubbing the colors on the paper instead of dabbing it. And, “face”! You used magic pens to draw 2 faces at the corners. So, where is the body? Hehe……

You were grumbling too. You insisted that you want to draw a big dinosaur. So, teacher drew many little dinosaurs for you. And, promised that you will have big dinosaurs to color next week. ๐Ÿ˜›

Also, thanks for the many little dinosaurs and the little chick. So do the big bird and flowers. It’s more of your art teacher’s work this time.You are very happy though. Thank you so much to your art teacher.

And, may be you can do a favor for her. Stop bordering her on taking you to wash your hands all the time. I am sure she will appreciates it so much. Hahahaha…… (I will blog the full story about this seperately tomorrow. To be continue……)


A for Apple, B for Bear……

Posted by Everyday Healy on October 1, 2009

Yesterday, she stayed at home. Today, she is absent from school again. The reason is obvious. She has flu again. LOL! Sorry, baby! Mummy was the one who passed it to you. :(

But, she seems happier. Wake up late at about 10.30 am, happily took the Piriton after taking some biscuits. Then, started enjoying herself with the imagination games again as she sat down at the window side. Cheering for the birds flying around. Complaint little bit about the dropping flowers cause by the rain. Imagine that she saw dolphins on the sea and so on. That’s my little cutie! ๐Ÿ˜‰

After a while, she sat down on the floor. Singing ABC’s song, mumbling A for Apple, B for Bear and so on, also busy arranging all the alphabets from A to Z. What a wonderful morning!



Somehow, mummy is kind of worry that the marble flooring is too cold for her as she is still sick. (Told you that tile flooring is better. Ya! Ya! But, nothing to worry. We got sofa. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

As mummy shifted her to the sofa in the TV area, she said:”Mummy, I forgot to watch TV.” Gosh! What a mistake! We should have moved to the study room. LOL!
