This is the day......

I've known my hubby since we were at secondary school, that year i was 13 and he was 19. The sparkle was being lit on when i was almost 19 (a week before my 19th birthday), and today we are celebrating our third wedding anniversary.

This morning hubby told me maybe we can buy a pair of diamond rings as recognition for our anniversary, frankly, i love diamond ring indeed (since i don't own one) but i would prefer to save the money for my son education.

As almost crossing my 30, what i'm aiming and feeling now are totally difference from my early 20. I'm getting slacked on having a jubilant celebration as i used to have and i'm getting slacked to nag at his occasional forgotten on some important dates. it because i'm getting older? Getting older means i am getting more wiser? Ok, let me be wise and comprehend that constant nagging will lead side effects to my family.

In order to minimize the unnecessary argument, it's essential not to bring up the issue in front of him, anyway i will still stomp him deeply in my blog as it is my least alternative to pour out my feeling.

Although a bouquet of flowers and present are absent here, i still want to say Happy Anniversary!

Found a new Hailida

Yesterday, i finally registered the private school named Hailida for Jo. It is 10 minutes walking distance from my house to the school. The school is exactly located behind Carrefour, so i can buy fresh vege and meat everyday after sending Jo to school.

The class is from 7:30am to 4:30pm whereas nap time is from 12noon to 2:30pm. I paid RMB1915 for the initial payment and September's fee (refer the table below). The new school term will be started officially on 1/9/2006, however i already sent Jo to the trial class. He was extremely excited to his new environment and didn't show any separation anxiety when i left the classroom yesterday. Anyway, i know sooner or later he will refuse to go to the school once the thriving enthusiasm is over.

School rejected Jo

I received a call from school just now, the lady is very kind to suggest me to think again whether we shall send Jo to school at his younger age (he is almost 30months old). She continued to say "the class has 20+ students, i think it's more difficult to give additional concentration to your son, how about home schooling that is more facilitated for 1 to 1 since your son has bowed legs that make him easily to fall."

I didn't ask for additional concentrated effort, but anyone with a modicum of motherly sense could have seen that i ought to mention his case to the school prior of the term started. He has bowed legs but it doesn't mean that he should be confined in the house without socialize with his peer. I know their difficulties to handle a large number of children when it comes to outdoor activities and i know their fear of getting scolded by parents for the careless attention. I've always been afraid of the Jo's schooling time as he tends to fall very easily when he runs, thus he need to wear a special orthopaedic shoes. The doctor even said the hunker down (sit down on heels) and cross legs style sitting are not suitable for him, but apparently these 2 styles are the favor sitting styles in nursery, right?

We introduced cycling and swimming to Jo which are less stimulation to him as running is prohibited for bowed legs people, but how to confine a little toddler not to run freely?

I have enrolled 2 schools for Jo, one is private and another is government. In fact, the government school is my personal preference in term of cleanliness and their large school compound. I would prefer school with spacious compound that Jo can exercise more and more, but his application is being declined because of his bowed threat, what a miserable case for my little one!

Some aunties said i'm too protecting him and said i should let him to fall more then only can train him walks more steadily, hey, silly aunties, you thought he always fall is due to the lacking of training? You thought after falling more will result to be steadily? Hey, you won't feel the pain even you saw him fell off, he is not your portion of flesh then how can you feel like what i feel? If this case happens to you, don't you act as protective as me? Why some sillies like to comment this and that, what's gone wrong for a mother to protect her son? Likewise, some relatives even said sarcastically to me as i was not slept in proper style when Jo was in my belly, hey, don't you know this is a genetic problem? My family is free from this problem then why the spearhead is always pointed to me? Why they like to conclude that all the shortcomings are always from me and the good always from my hubby?

OK, nevermind, we will opt to the private one!

p/s: Jo has 19 teeth now~~

Where is your ears?

Incident 1
It happened around 12:40am while all of us were sleeping, suddenly Jo murmuring to me that he wanted to pee. I was initially pretended i didn't hear it as i was too tired and i couldn't make myself up to hold the potty for him. I knew he wanted to pee into the potty, but i still turned my body to other side and continued my sleep since i thought he could pee directly to his diaper.

After a while he murmured again, so this time i forced myself up as i knew he was in "extremely urgent" since he repeated twice to me. I up and without saying "just pee directly to your diaper" as i'm trying hard to make him calls me when he wants to pee at night. I went out my room to take the potty without wearing my spectacles and so when i held the potty for Jo.

He started to pee while i just took off the diaper halfway, i let out a great yell to my hubby and told him that Jo was pissing on me, mattress, floor and some in potty. I asked hubby up to help me as i couldn't stand due to my pyjamas has his urine too, i talked to hubby that at least he could take me my spectacles and bla..bla..bla...nonetheless he answered "emm.." and continued fallen into his slumberland.

Ok, nevermind, i took my spectacles and started my cleaning job and took bath again with a lot of earfuls to him. Till now, i couldn't make up my mind through how the "splashing" had happened since the moment i off my spectacles.

See, what a man can do when you are really get into a trouble.

Incident 2
It happened again this morning while we have our conversation in living room. I asked hubby whether this Saturday i can go to test my blood or not, he looked very funny to me and said "so, this Saturday i can't go to office la, you want to go down to HK and test your blood right?" I controlled myself not to raise up my voice though the "pissing" issue is not over yet, i replied him "i already told you yesterday that i'm going to test my blood in the local hospital here, and now you said Hk again??"

OK, conversation finished!

Incident 3
Then after a while, i felt so blurred when i saw him changing his office wear, i asked him "are you going to office now"?, he replied "yala, almost 8:30am now". What? Just now he said he would take half day leave and take a look to JO's new school but now he said he is going to office? However, i still managed myself not to raise up my voice though the "pissing" and "blood test" issues are not over yet, i asked him "Why just now you said later we go to Jo's school and now you said you are going to leave the house?", he looked very puzzled and replied "Huh?, did i say? Aiya, maybe we find another day la"..

Ok, this time i couldn't keep my temper already and said #!$%^&^*(%$ to him.

Hey, guy, "did you keep your ears when i'm talking, don't make me like talking to air, ok??".

My gentle little Jo

How lovely to have somebody who talks nicely to you! I have this "somebody" who enounced his thoughtful heart to his parents recently.

Before we went out for park, suddenly Jo said this to me while i was getting my pants up,
Jo : Mommy 回家 (actually is 在家),不要去踢ball ball, mommy 会跌倒。
(Mommy stayed at home, don't go for ball ball as mommy would fall down)

He doesn't want to play football with me after i fell off once while i was playing ball with a little boy. Perhaps he knows that i'm too clumsy and better staying at home.
One day i told Jo that i suffered from headache and couldn't bring him to park,
Jo : Jojo驾car car,mommy上车, Jojo载mommy去看医生.
(Jojo drove the car, mommy came in the car and Jojo drove mommy to see doctor)

He has a big chargeable motorcar and he always says wanted to send me here and there.
On one raining day i told Jo that papa didn't bring along the umbrella,
Jo : 爸爸快快跑,不要wet wet. (Papa ran quickly and don't get wet)
Jo : 爸爸搭 bus 去做工?(Papa takes bus to work?)
Me : 是啊!爸爸没有车。(Yes, Papa doesn't own car)
Jo : Jojo买车给爸爸。(Jojo wants to buy car for papa)
Me : Jojo有钱买?(Do you have money?)
Jo : Jojo 搭 bus 去做工! (Jojo takes bus to work)
Jo : Jojo有钱钱。(Then, Jojo has money)

What a fealty boy that wants to earn money for his parents at his young age! Hopefully this fealtiness will keep on.

Blogger in Beta

I'm quite exciting with the new beta version and wish to explore it more but unfortunately i don't have a luck to have the link on my dashboard, thus i have to wait until i'm one of them who is able to switch. I have created another new account since Blogger mentioned "what you can do is to visit and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account. "

Copied out from for your easy reading!
While the new version of Blogger is still in beta, some users with certain types of blogs will not be able to switch to it. We'll be adding support for these blogs as soon as possible, so everyone can join in the fun. But for now, if you have any of the following on your account, you'll need to hold off for a bit:

- A blog publishing via FTP to a non-BlogSpot server.
- A blog with a Plus upgrade (we stopped offering this upgrade a couple years ago, so this will not affect many people).
- A team blog.
- A blog with a mobile device associated with it.

Note that, even if your blog is eligible to switch, you may not have the link to do so on your dashboard. We are starting out by just switching over a limited number of accounts, but we'll add more and more as time goes on. However, if you still want to try out Blogger in beta, what you can do is to visit and create a new account. Later on, you'll be able to merge this account with your original Blogger account.

Thanks for your patience, and we promise it will be worth the wait!

Emm...what happened?

Emm...what happened? Why suddenly i can access blogspot without using any proxy? Can't believe that i can surf directly by typing rather than

Hoho..can't believe!! What a good day!

Colorful day

Jo is being jailed from Monday till now as the Prapiroon Typhoon (派比安) is hoisted recently, since he couldn't go to playground so i took out his color and let's the yesterday be colorful day for him although outside was a gloomy day.

Jo was so excited and ORDERED me to put more colors into the palette, i was initially gave him 2 colors but finally the palette was being filled fully with different colors since he kept
saying "放多多". (put more more)

Jo refused to have handprinting at first, however he still allowed me to paint his feet and printed onto the paper. Nevertheless, i have his handprints successfully after few coaxing.

Suddenly when i turned my body to him, i saw this almost make me fainted as he poured the colors onto the paper.

Masterpiece finally out from furnace after brushing fitfully by Jo.

School hunting

Recently i'm scouting around the town to hunter a good school for Jo as the new school term will be started on first of September and Jo is on his right age to attend the school. It's very crucial and a lot of criterias that have to take it as considerations.

Firstly, we need to find a school which cultivates both Chinese and English, at least Jo is able to catch up bilingual languages when the time to be settled down in Malaysia. Anyway, it is not easy to find a reputed native school here unless we send Jo to International School. But is it worth to send Jo to International School at age of 2 and half? Apparently not money worth for just having fun in school at such a young age. Somemore, we have to move to another town area too provided we really opt to International School.

Secondly, transportation is another issue for us. Since we don't have our own transport and have to rely on public transportation, i'm more likely to choose a school which nearby my house. I hate to take public transportation especially the bus here as the bus driver is putting passenger 's life in guillotine. Apart from driving imprudently, i hate the sweaty smell from others and hate to squeeze like sardine in bus. Though most of the school provides school bus, but i still prefer not to let Jo joins the school bus since he isn't mellow on sitting quietly in bus.

Due to above 2 reasons finally i opt one private school that near to my house, it merely needs 10 minutes walking distance to there. Some aunties told me that private school is not good especially the food provided, but some aunties just told me the opposite, so i think better myself to dig out the real face of the school later. Hopefully it's still seat available.

Currently i'm trying to wean off his diaper at nap and night time, so far it runs very smooth at afternoon nap and he doesn't wet his bed. I would praise him everytime he wakes up with dry bed from his afternoon nap and he seems like very enjoying the praises. He keeps telling me "Jojo 不要shee-shee在床上,要shee-shee在but-but (potty in hakka). (Jojo doesn't want to pee on bed, but pee into potty) It takes time to wean off successfully, but i do hope he can wean of as soon as possible. It was terrible at the first 2 nights, i kept waking him and coaxing him to pee, but he yelled "Jojo 要ooi-ooi" (Jojo wanted to sleep) and cried for wanting an uninterrupted sleep. Likewise, i was suffered to be a panda bear too as i woke up every 2 hours to hold the potty for Jo. Though he cried but i still insisted not to wear him a diaper. So surprisingly he didn't wet the bed even he didn't want to pee into the potty at the late night. I was getting slacked after trying for 2 nights, and of course he is wearing diaper at night now. But all of a sudden, he didn't wet the diaper and would call me up when he wants to pee at night. I hope he can keep on his achievement and totally wean off the diaper. Though i still have 2 jumbo packs of Mamypoko which brought from M'sia, hehehe...maybe can keep for my second baby, just hope it won't getting yellowish inside.

Apart from weaning off the diaper, i wish to wean off his bottle too. He can drink anything from cup but absolutely not his milk. I tried to make milk in cup and been telling him our downstair's aunty took all his bottles for her newborn baby, it seemed unsuccessful for telling crap to him as he cried loudly at the balcony and wanted the aunty brings back his bottles.

He drunk his milk reluctantly from cup but he vomitted everything (rice before and milk) out just less than 1 minute after his milk. I finally took out his bottle after the situation could not be prevailed, of course he gave me his sweet smile by seeing his bottle.

We can save more provided i can wean off his diaper and bottle successfully. Not even save money for not buying diaper and bottle cleanser, i even save my effort for not cleaning and sterilizing his bottles. I do hope he can outgrow them before i plan for second baby, at least i can put my concentration on my new baby.

If everyone has idea on how to wean off diaper and bottle please do share for me.
