Cartoon Char & Santa

These 2 weeks we brought the kids went to few shopping center to see the cartoon char & Santa. My son was the first time saw the Santa cause last few years we had no time and scare the shopping center so crowded so we didn’t bring him to meet Santa.

Yesterday was he first time saw Santa at Midvalley. He so happy and took a lot of photos there. He also takes the camera to snap Santa & Mrs Santa when they telling story to the children.

The 1 Utama meet Mickey Mouse & friends we didn’t take any photos with them cause too many ppl and that time we meet them was for special guest only so we didn’t wait for it. Somemore thought had show but just only take photos, we so disappointed.

At Ikeano about the Scooby-Doo show & games, the kids were so enjoy. At the end, we can meet and take photos with them. We went there at normal day so it not many ppl and had lot of fun there.

Below are some of the photos we took at these few shows :

Block & Puzzle


I like to buy block or puzzle for my kids. I just think that kids play with it will have good imagination and creative.

When my son about 1 year old I start buy the puzzle make of wood like cut the fruit and some big block. Later he about 2 years plus I bought him abit smaller block for him.

When he 3 years old I bought him other type of puzzle and block. Like the block made of wood, he need to learn balance when place the block higher.

Now he is 4 years plus, so we bought him a set of 1000 pcs ‘LEGO’ for him. He can make a lot of shape he likes. Those pic below I follow the menu to work it out, some he make I forgot to take photos.

For my glas, we bought them a wood puzzle. They like to take out and mix together but they can put back which was belonging to them. They also like to play with their kor kor block or puzzle too. Now they can fix some of the ‘LEGO’ by themselves after that they will shoe me and tell me what it is (forgot to take photo too).

The below blocks I just bought at nite market (Pasar Malam) near by my house, they are very cheap. The quality almost same as ‘LEGO’, it just cost about RM 8 – RM 28 per set only. 1 set can make at least 3 difference type of model. We will buy it 1 week once for collection, no money to buy so expensive ‘LEGO’.

Art work that we done



This few days we had done some art work. We had our work place so we can do our art and craft at there.

First we had done some hand print, the kids like it so much. I paint their hands and they put on the sugar paper then I help them press and print on the paper. I let them ware my old t-shirt so they wont get dirty on their shirt. They look cute with the big t-shirt.

The next day we do paper cutting and glue it together. Since Carter knows to use scissor so he help me cut the paper too (those square shape only). That book I bought it at Popular Bookshop, he loves it so much (this book I bought again for him due to his requested).

The yellow paper one (I used ‘manila’ cardboard) was I printed from the Canon 3D Papercraft . It had some other type of 3D papercraft, card and seasons craft too like X-mas Tree. I like it so much but need a lot of paper and colour to print out the craft. The papercraft should have colour but my printer out of colour ink so just print it back and white. Later maybe will make a small city for my son, see I got time or not.

Last day to school

Last Friday is my last day to school cause start school holidays and my school headmaster decided to retire so need to close down that kindergarten. We so miss that school, so many parents call the headmaster continue the school but he refuse.

Last week I brought my gals go to school together with me to let them try some school life. They love it so much. Everynite will ask me weather the next day go school or not. I said got, they so happy to hear that.

Yesterday, they asked me again but I told them no more school they fell very sad and cried said want to go school. So I will be a SAHM again maybe for another few months if I cant get another new job.

Today let my kids do some handwork. (Yesterday went to Popular bought so many paper for them to do art work on the school holidays). My son said he wants to go art and craft lesson but I decided to let him stay at home and I’ll be the art teacher for him..kekeke..save money mar and I can teach myself why wanna pay other ppl for RM 100++ for babysit about 1 hours a week only.

Tomorrow will give them start some lesson already, hope this holiday they can learn more things from me. I also bought some book for him to read and write, and brought some holidays homework from my school for him too cause his school dun have any homework for him. Need to keep him busy so I will teach him by myself.

Thumb and pacifier sucking

Saw Zara’s mama post about weaning Zara from thumb sucking. I’m very lucky that I dun have this type of problem. They dun have this type of bad habit, but they like to dick nose (hope can wean them off this habit too).

My son case, because of he is breastfeed baby (6 months) so he dun like to suck pacifier. I try so many type of pacifier but fail to let him suck, cause 1 of my friend told me that if dun let him suck pacifier he will suck his thumb. Later his thumb will be not nice and very hard to wean off. If using pacifier, you can just throw the pacifier but if suck finger you cant cut off the finger.

Everytime i saw my son put his finger into his mouth I’ll pull it out and tell him dun do that, it was very dirty to put finger inside the mouth. I just keep on pull out his finger till he dun like to suck finger. Sometime I just let it be cause he will keep changing suck his all finger, if he keep on sucking the same finger I’ll pull it out.

For my twins, I’ll let them use pacifier (cause I breastfeed them just 2 months plus). Sometime they suck till the next morning when they just few months old. So I decided to wean off when they about 9 months old. First few days were tough, after that they can sleep without it. In my opinion, if can wean off b4 1 year old are grate cause they still young cant ask you for the pacifier so can wean off easily.

So do the same, I start let them sleep by their own when they turn 1 year old (I mean no need to cuddle or hug them), it work for 3 of them. After 1 year old, when they finished their milk they will play awhile and fall asleep by their own. If I dun do that, I dunno how to carry 3 of them sleep in the same time..haha.

I dun like to see my kids like other kids at shopping center, they sucking their pacifier just like at home. I saw some of the kids suck pacifier or thumb too much till their teeth no nice. My friends show me their kid’s thumb which was so flat and their front teeth come out. She the one at first call me dun give baby suck pacifier, cause the same reason teeth no nice. Later, she told me better let baby suck pacifier cause very hard to wean off..haha..i didn’t follow what she said. I try my method, it work.

Pity child

I so pity one of my class students. His mother not even cares about him, anything all dump to his father. He is 6 years old now, but he haven’t brush any teeth b4. How we know?? Cause last few month we having teeth check at school, so all the student need to bring their toothbrush and mug to school. The nurse will come and teach them proper way to brush teeth and check their teeth.

The next day we told all the parents to bring their toothbrush, his father told us his son dun had any toothbrush at home. My college asks his father to buy one for him. Wow!! What a parent were they?? They know their kids didn’t brush teeth still dunwan to teach them. I notice this type of parent’s very irresponsibility. A small kind of thing also can’t do it.

Somemore, my college babysits him when he just 5 years old. She told me that he not even know how to chew meat cause his last babysitter just feed him porridge no any rice or meat for him. When meal time he need to take about 2 hours to finish his meal. Now getting better, just need about 1 hour. You know not easy to feed a children eat rice, we need to wait the kids chew and swallow then feed another feed. If porridge very easy, just need to wait they swallow then feed again no need wait for them chew. 1+2dad also very lazy to feed the kids, I said that is not easy job. Somemore I need to feed 3 of them everyday.

He almost 365 days flu, when running nose he not even bother to wipe it off. Sometime we saw it, we will ask him why not ask us take tissue paper for him. He just looks at us. My college told me when meal time he sneezing wont cover his mouth so the dish are full of his yuck!! They teach him so many times but he still does the same.

One more thing, I dunno what his mother do?? Why she want to have kids but dunwan to bother him. On Saturday, she bring her son to my college house for babysit. My college ask him whether he having his breakfast or not (they didn’t include breakfast, just 2 meal). What he told my college was no. My college asks him why not having his breakfast b4 you come and your mommy didn’t buy any bread for you?? What he answer was :” my mommy said no time to buy bread for me cause her college want to go home.” What the hell of this mother said?? Didn’t her son more important then to send a college home?? She can just drop by a bread shop to buy bread, I dun think need to take more then 10 min??

I so pity this kid, he is a very smart kid. If his parents good educate him, I sure his is a grate kid but this irresponsibly parents spoiled him.

Learn Chinese

My son dun like to talk Manderin nowadays. Dunno why but he wont let both of us talk Manderin with him too. He said we just can talk English with him but mar mar can talk Manderin with him. I said why you didn’t answer Manderin with her?? He just smiles and walks away.

I was a Manderin teacher for kiddy so I decided to teach him Manderin by myself early. (His school no Manderin lesson at the moment, they will start when 5 years old). He can remember the words I teach him just one time, so I teach the gals together too.

I just start let them learn三字经”(san zi jing) they can pick up so fast. Now they almost can remember all the words at the 1st topic. If I not working as a teacher, I think I’ll be lazy to let them learn 三字经”(san zi jing) cause few months ago I want to start but lazy till I notice my son start dun like Manderin so I teach him and my gals together.

I notice the kids start late to learn Manderin they will very hard to pick up. Some of my 6 years old students didn’t remember some simple words like (cow), (goat), (cat), (dog). They dunno which is which. (those at home just speak English and mother father didn’t let them revision at home). For my opinion, if want to go Chinese school, the kids must be hardworking cause they have a lot of writing to write. It not like English or bahasa just needs to rearrange 26 alphabets only, but Manderin need so many lines to be a words.

Hope my kids wont tell me they dun like Manderin. My class got 2 students told me they dun like Chinese, but they have to go Chinese school next year so poor of them. They dun like the Chinese till they dunwan do homework ler. Somemore both of them are Indian Mix, but their sibling all are in Chinese school now.

I want read story book

Now a day, I’ve been very buzy with my job and my kids. My kids occupied all my time, I need to accompany them all day long
.
Everyday after school back to home, I need to feed my kids and myself. Accompany them watch TV program and nap. After wake up from nap, play with them. Later after taking dinner I bath them and we have fun with 1+2dad that is our family time whole day long.

Later about 10pm, it is time to sleep. Let them change and brush teeth then had their milk. After that, it is time to read story book for them. They like this section when I start read story for them, so everynite b4 sleep they want me to read story book for them. They learn so much word from there. It worth it to sacrifice my time to do my house work early right after they sleep. I took some time to read some book for them.

So now I less blog and blog hopping cause after I done my house work it about 12am and I need to prepare my lesson plan for my next day work.

Those story books I bought from a company call Grolier. They call me whether I want the book or not and it suitable for my twins. It just cost about RM 16.++ for 2 first steps to reading and 1 for parents guide to read. It cheap so I just ask them sends to me and my kids just love it so much. It was an alphabet story book and contents each alphabet for each book.

Later they call me whether to send the rest of the book, so I said continue and it can pay for 0 interest installment for 12 months. Not bad..hehe.

So everynite after milk they will call : “ mummy!!! I want read story book!!!” My son will count what alphabet we read until yesterday and continue which alphabet today. He start read the story book and tell me some story too. My gals they will told me the word when I point to that pic.

I’m so happy they start like reading, hope will keep this job and I already order few story book for them just need to wait few more weeks.

Genting trip (Day 2 & 3)

As last post we been to Genting, the next day we wake up about 10am..haha..cause the day before we slept at about 12.30am so we wake up late.

After we change up, we have our breakfast at First World Indoor Theam Park. Later we go buy the indoor theam park tickets, we bought the family package (2 adult and 2 children) at RM 85.00 and 1 children ticket for my son at RM 21.00. (Those want to go Genting, please buy it online, it very cheap just only RM 69.00 for Family package and RM 16.00 for children). The family package had some other offer and discount like it had 2 Snow World ticket offer (1 coupon is b4 12 pm and another is the last entry of the day it means at 11.30pm) for only RM 10.00 per entry but just for 1 ticket only.

1+2dad brought my son to the snow world after few round of car ride, and I brought the gals go play others ride. We meet back at Snow World at 12.10pm. My son looks so happy after saw us and told me what he plays in the Snow World.

My gals play the car ride (Ride de Paris) and the ‘marry go round’ non stop, till they wanna fall asleep while playing the ‘marry go round’. I told them they still can play after nap, and at nite. Carol still annoying when we on the way back to hotel, but Carrie very happy she can back to hotel sleep.

While we in the hotel, I let the kids had their milk and the gals fall asleep very fast. But not my son, he still telling me he used the snow to throw his father. He play the slide in the snow house, he fall off because the snow skippy. He told me many things that happened in the Snow World till he cant sleep. I said bring him go down play some more he said want, then me and my son off we go play the indoor game again.



After about an hour, we back to hotel and they still sleeping. It about 4.30pm, we wake them up and rest a while at about 5pm we went down to the park again. Let them play the car ride again and again we having our buffet dinner at Resort Café (we go try another hotel buffet, whether it same or not). The kids like it but it not much choice compare to the First World Café.



After the dinner, we back to First World Indoor Theam Park continue the ride. I think my kids go for the car ride and marry go round more then 20 times. If not buy the unlimited ride I think I will ‘backrup’ cause per ride it charge at RM 4.00, for 3 kids is already RM 12.00 per round. If 20 times ..hahaha..dun think about it.

We go for the monorial before they close, having a nite scene in the outdoor theam park. After that, we brought the kids for the river boot ride (Rio Float). My son wanna throw the coins into the container wish that set long the way to boot pass by.

After that they go for the car ride again, and I said wanna try the 4d motion master. It makes me head spinning and not so excited. I told 1+2dad no need to try, it nothing special. After the motion master it about 10.30pm, I go find them at McD. We thought back to hotel sleep but the kids still want to play. We let them play last round but my son want to go Snow World see again. After that, 1+2dad told me our son wants to go to the Snow World again. 1+2dad scare he will fall sick again, decided not go in but my son fell very sad after he dad said that and he said he will eat medicine if he fall sick again. Kids want to play, ask them do anything also can. They went to the Snow World again, and I bring the gals go play other ride again.

At 12.20am, I and the gals still wait our turn to ride the Ferris Wheel. When is our turn to go up, 1+2dad and my son got in time to ride with us. After the ride, it about 12.45am. It was really a very happy day for the kids. Carter and Carol still said want to play while we back to hotel. We said the park nearly want to close, and we all so tired need to go back hotel sleep.

After change them, it nearly about 1am plus. After we slept, 1+2dad head to Casino to try luck but lost about RM 400.

The next day morning, we had our breakfast at hotel it was ‘Instance Mee Noddle’..haha. After check out, we go to Theam Park Hotel back side park took some photo and back to our home.



On the way back, we asked them whether want to come again?? They all said : " Want!!!"

Pre-school experiences

Saw a post about the nursery and kindergarten at mumsgather blog. I send my son to nursery because my maid went back to her hometown and I need sometime for my 15 months old twins last year.

Below are some of the question that MG wants to know :

1. When did you register? (ie how many months in advance?)
I register my son to nursery when I want to enroll him to nursery on April. I asked the headmasters that let my son had a trial b4 he enters to the nursery.

2.How old was your kid?
He is just 3 years old when he enter the kiddy.

3. How did you choose the kiddy?
I just went to nearest kiddy to find the nursery that accept 3 years old kid.

4.What is your child's personality and how long did he/she take to settle down?
My son very stick to me cause I’m the only one he face since he born, he need about a week to settle down. I just accompany him about 3 days, and then I let him stay alone after the 4th day. At first he will cry, later he knows you will come and fetch him b4 the school bell ring he will settle down.

5. Are you happy with your choice?
oklar, at least he enjoy and he told me he like the school.

6.Any horror/happy stories to share?
He very happy that his friend celebrate birthday at school and play with his friends.

When my son 3 years old at nursery, they just repeat the word and song everyday so the kids will recognize and remember the word and song. They dun have any exam and homework cause for 3 years old kids they just have fun and meet friends at school. They just do some coloring and painting that’s all.

This year he turns 4 so they start to teach them alphabets and numbers. They sometime have homework but just 1 page of coloring and 1 page of writing only. I like this school 1 thing is they will let the kids read the reading book 1 by 1 for teacher so that the teacher know who can read who cant. They didn’t force them know all the word but at least they learn.

My son very lazy to write properly and colour nicely, I very happy he got improvement and learn many new things at school.

This school will need parents choose the langue when they turn to 5 years old so they can concentrate on the langue you choose, like if you want to let your children enter Chinese primary school they will teach more Chinese. This year they still had 1 lesson of Manderin so the children can get used to it b4 they go on to next year class. They dunwan the children learn so many languages in 1 time, so they will start it on 5 years old.

Fussy parents

On Monday, 1 of the student parents came by complain us that his son writing was so bad. That teacher told me after that, she said his father mother very fussy. This kind of things also wants to complain, somemore not our wrong. They should accompany his son do homework and know why his writing so badly.

Early the year, his writing was quite nice. Dunno why after holiday back his writing was so badly especially Chinese word. I know the Chinese word very hard to write, so I dun expect they write so nicely but this parents very fussy, they said cannot just like that must write properly and nicely.

That teacher also told me that this mother sits at the class about a week to see how the teacher teaches the lessons. That time his son 5 years old, this mother said cannot let his son go home do homework. It should do it at school, teacher should have time for him to finish the work. Actually, the teacher just wants to let the kids get used to have homework b4 they enter to primary school. She just let the kids do half of the work at home.

Some of the mother want the teachers teach their children like at university cause they expect their 4 or 5 years old children know every word that they had learned at school.

I dunno why those mother said they dun have time to teach their children but got time go shopping and dry swimming (play mahjong). 1 of the mother told me that his hubby saw his 6 years old son cried when doing homework, he told his son no need to do wor. I dun think this is the best way to teach a children, it should let the kids rest then do it afterward. Just like my son, I know they very young and no strange to color so much so I just let him do some of it then after his nap I continue let him do if still cant finish I will let him finish after his dinner.

Some of the parents know how to help the kids but some may not like to hear what you said about his children. Parents need to know what gain and lose they want. If want the kids be good so need to suicide the courier, if you think you love your job more..feel sorry to your kids lor.

Later about 5.30 or 6pm we all wake up and play a while, teach them some song. Carol and Carrie can sing many song like : Twinkle twinkle little star, Bla Bla Black Sheep, ABC song, Hickory Dickory Dock and I love you (Barney ending song). They can sang part of the song, but know the starting and some word will be missing.

At 7pm we having our dinner, after dinner I bath the kids. After that, I fold the cloth and the kids watch TV or play around. While they playing if got time I do my home work (lesson plans and mark the book).

At about 10pm, I change them and let them go sleep. In the bedroom, if they after had their milk still haven’t sleep I’ll sing a song with them. Sometime teach them new song, or I’ll chat with my son what he done at school today.

After they had slept, I go wash the cloth and do some house chore. Iron some cloth for the next day used, read some e-mail.

Sorry this few days cant blog hopping cause sometime too tired. If I do so maybe didn’t drop any comment but just go through the blog.

I start work

Last week I went for an interview to be a kindergarten teacher, though wont get this job cause I lost my SPM cert. They need the cert. to apply working permit for me, so I need to do replacement.

I had checked the web show that if I want the replacement cert. I need to get the ‘surat sumpah’ or police report b4 submit to Lembaga Peperiksaan (I had been to my secondary school asked for the replacement but they said need to go Lembaga Peperiksaan to get). I very lazy to find and cause few time shift house dunno where I put the cert. but I got my diploma cert. so I though not so importance.

This job is my MIL got it at the newspaper, she told me why not I go for try and cause it quite near to my son nursery (just a filed apart). She can help me look after the gals, and I can go school and back home with my son so can earn some pocket money too.

Today that kindergarten principle call me to start work, she lets me look around the school first b4 I really start on Wednesday. She past me the previous teacher job to me, teach me some of the technique when teach them. I teach all the subject except English and Bahasa.

I’ll be part time mum to my kids from Wednesday onward. I think to go back work for long time but the kids still young, so now I can work half day and takecare the children too. When school holiday, I also holiday..not bad.

Twins lock in bedroom

This afternoon at about 1.30pm was time for my kids nap, but they still wanna play so I let it be.

I let them play till 2.30pm and call my gals to sleep. Mean while my son wants me to accompany him to play online game, he need me to help him open the game for him. I went out the room and half close the door (my gals still haven’t slept), I load the website for my son.

While waiting the web page to load, I surf net and read some blog. Carter goes in and out the bedroom and closed the door. I heard he close the door and heard Carrie near the door. Perhaps she wants to open the door but she accidentally locks the door. I though my MIL bedroom toilet was unlock (we share the same toilet), cause I just used.

Later Carrie call me, I go my MIL room though want to pass by the toilet to open the door but I noticed was locked. I quickly ran back to my bedroom and asked Carrie twist the door knob. She tried so hard but still cant unlock the door. Because she not high enough so I call her to take some pillow to stand on it and try to twist the door knob but failed.

I call her so many time to try again and again, but still failed. About 15 min later, she starts panic and calls me to open the door. She cried and cried, my FIL used the drill to open the door knob. I heard she cry so loud but didn’t heard any Carol sound, I know she was slept.

After the door was open, I saw Carrie cried on her bed while Carol slept behind the door (I think she was slept b4 Carrie start panic). She not even heard any noise from the drill while my FIL drill the door knob. While I carried her, she look still blur dunno what happened just now. I hug Carrie and gave her drink some water then accompany her sleep.

I know it will happen 1 day cause this few week she like to play with the door knob. She lock (at outside) and open the door. Carter also tried once when he about this age too. My bedroom door knob ‘shot shot’ for quite some time, and the key was lost.

1st time my bedroom door locked and my FIL can open from the toilet (door open facing to my room), but this time I locked my FIL toilet room (I locked it inside the toilet door) so need to drill the door knob. The door knob still can used, maybe this weekend will change a new one.

Just now we brought him to see paed, when doc saw him and said he maybe infect Aedes. He need to take his blood for test whether is or not? It also looks like 假麻. When doc took his blood saw he cries till my hard so pain.

The report will come out tomorrow afternoon, hope nothing happen to him. This time he very co-operate when feed him eat medicine but need ppl to hold his hand.

When I saw him so active and jumping up and down at home, I think it shouldnt be so serious gua.

Weekend delight

Sunday morning we go 1U again, yes 1U cause is very near to our house. We brought together with the Robot cause got something wrong with it, we just got it 2 weeks ago. When reached there, the sale people told us that the controller got problem. They will replace to us after they got the stock, meanwhile we want go to shopping we saw the tag on the table show that they will sold off their demo set at RM200. If you want go check it out.

Good news at 1U that the new kid’s playground near GSC cinema was open!!! It charge about RM 15/entry. I think for all kids dunno include the toddle under 3 or not are charge the same price. Remember bring along the socks. For me I saw it suitable for kids above 5 to play. While we had a look at that playground we saw a couple and maid with 3 little gals about the same age (they wear same shirt and pants), later I know they are triples (cause they call her mommy). Wow!! 3 gals, dunno that husband and wife want any children again?? Their daughters look about 5 or 6 years old. We saw them leave with 1 ppl hold one gal, so cute and easy. Not like us, we either one need to hole 2 children.

Sunday nite I tried to make pretzel again. If you all already read Maria post last week, you should know I failed my pretzel. Why?? Cause I’m so stupid that think the due coffee powder was yeast. I didn’t saw any yeast b4, so I though that was a yeast put in a small plastic container. No wander the dough wouldn’t raise and the smell like coffee. Some more the color was chocolate. I though my MIL put the yeast at the same place with those baking accessories after my MIL told me that was her coffee that put very long ago.

This week I tried again, finally can get it. But I roll the dough to tick should be more thin, next time make it thin and add on some cheese.

If you all want to try the recipes can go to the link below :
http://www.dininginthailand.com/recipe-006-aa-pretzel.htm

Yea!! 1 thing b4 I forgot, in that recipe I had change the non-stick spray to tin glice that I bought at the baker shop that sold baking accessories. I asked her about the non-stick spray she recommends me to buy the tin glice. That non-stick spray is about RM 30, but the tin glice just about RM 2.50 dunno shopping center got or not??

This are some of the photos i took when i made the pretzel.


The dough i had made it raise after 1 hour.



The pretzel is too thick, i'll make it smaller next time i do again.


The pretzel in the baking sheet.


The final look afther the pretzel was baked.


The baking soda (powder) and the tin glice (cream) are look like this.

Visit to Twinsmom house

Last Sunday I brought along my children to visit Maria at Jalan Gasing. I call her few days b4 cause want to taste her cooking..muahaha. It 100% yummy, she make cream cheese fish on tortilla for us but too bad b4 I went to her house I had my breakfast and lunch. Carol and Carrie like it so much, but Carter didnt tried cause he is a picky food very scare to try new thing. 1+2dad fetch us to there and he gone home wait for my call to fetch us again.

When reached her house I call her, she went down to meet us. In front of her MIL house got a little tinny dog, I didn’t realize there got a dog until it bark to my son. Her SIL came out to we just say hi to her then we went up to her house.

I like her back house roof top (transparent), cause she hang her laundry there without direct sunshine and if raining no need care about the laundry will wet or not. She said sometime she already forgot about the laundry still hang there, sometime will leave it overnight at there too.

Tell you all a secret, Maria no look like her in her wedding photos. She just look like a secondary school gal, very very young looking. She very slim (now also slim liao compare last time I saw her), didn’t wear spec.

Annabelle and Isabelle brought my kids to their bedroom to play jump jump on their bed. Maria asked to have her cream cheese fish on tortilla, but I just ate so wait abit longer I tried it. It very nice and but not so crispy cause maybe already cold down quite long.

We chit chat there while the kids play around and watch TV. Later we went down stair to let her MIL saw my twins, and the kids play at her SIL room. I think about 15 min my son wants to go back to Maria house. At about 2 pm, 1+2dad reached and we gone home.

New Toy

Last Sunday we had been to 1U again. The nite b4 we go, 1+2dad ask my son which toy he want.
1+2dad : boy, daddy buy the robot for want or not?
Boy : want!!!

1+2dad : you want robot or the dinosaur?
Boy : I want big robot.

1+2dad : why you want robot, dunwan dinosaur?
Boy : the big robot can beat the dinosaur.

So the next day we went to 1U after we had our breakfast at Kayu Nasi Kandar nearby our house. At the shop, 1+2dad decided to buy the robot for him that day but they had no stock for the blue color robot so we order from them and to pick up the stock when it reach their shop.

We walk around and back to home about 1pm. I had a survey at Old Town, so I went there with my son. It was a diapers survey, just look the advertisement and answer some question. It take about half an hour and I get RM 50..hehe..an extra pocket money for me.

The next day after I weak up from nap, I saw 1+2dad bought the robot for my son and he open it on my MIL(mother in law) room. I said why so early buy the robot for him and his birthday haven’t reach yet? He said nvm just let him have the robot early.

My son weak up saw the robot he want, he very excited and happy. He play with the robot and when the time to sleep he put the robot at the corner of his bed. He said the robot want to sleep with him.

The robot came with the remote control. This color very nice compare with others color. (it got gold and white)



Additonal :

Carrie know how to sing the "twinkle little star" with her own style.

They do things together!!!

So many ppl will ask me whether my gals are twins or not? They very look alike, cause they are identical twins. They are many way look same and sometime we also will mix up too.

Sleep
They like to sleep in the same post, the photos I posted it b4..here and here. Most of the day, they sleep together in the same time and wake up in the same time.

Eat & drink
They eat and drink together, when ever the other eat sure you will see the other ask for the same things. They drink milk together since I trained them sleep together in the same time.

Toilet
They will pee and poo in the same time too. Funny?? If 1 of them pee or poo first the other will come in a min difference. So when I toilet train them, if I saw 1 of them wet their nappy or pant I will get the other one go toilet..hehe..she sure can done her business.

Play
Most of the time they play together same as most of the time they fight of the same toys. I will try to get another toy for the 1 who cant play the same toy but if the other saw it she also want that toy, so if can I will get the same toy same colour for them. If just only one, I will tell them give back to her kor kor(brother), her kor kor want to play. No more fighting cause their kor kor want to play, some time my son will cooperate with me take back the toy but some time he scold me to give back the toy for them.

Dance
They dance in the same post, they lot of difference with my son. I though they should be difference cause they personality are difference but they dance in the same post. They like to shake their body but my son just shake his head when they dancing.

Bath
They bath together since they know to sit that is about 8 months old. Sometime they bath with their kor kor too.

Talk
They start talking almost the same time, now they talk equally. If 1 of them says the word like ‘dunwan’ the other will follow. They also like to follow what we said and their bother said.

I dunno other twins are same like them?? These twins give me so many new things to learn and find out. They are also miracle, still dunno what they think.

I asked 1+2dad b4, if 1 of them goes oversea (if used old passport) should the custom know they are twins if they used the same passport? Now I know cant, cause the passport got the chip that identify the fingers print.

I also think of if got boy want to pursue 1 of my gal then the boy dunno she is twins..haha..izzit got many funny things will happened?? I think too much!!!

Another funny laugh!!!

Top 10 reasons why we SHOULD buy pirated VCDs

1. Free black plastic bag
You can't get those cool black coloured bags anywhere.The ones sold outsideare too big and they are meantfor the tong sampah.

2. Family bond
Every weekend, when you go to wangsa maju JJ, you can see little kids running to the VCD shop to select their favourite Pokemon cartoon VCD. And then mommy will come along to find her favourite Teresa Teng VCD.Next comes big sister to select her F4 VCD. And lastly, big bro and daddy searching for the latest movies ... and try to eye for some you-know-whatVCD. Anyway, the whole idea is, the pirated VCD shop is like a place for weekend family reunion. When was the last time you saw daddy buying little Billy a VCD in Speedy Video ?

3. Cinema sucks
When you reach the cinema, you'll have to line up for 15 minutes before it's your turn to get the ticket. By then, they tell you ticket sudah habis.So you buy tickets for the next show and have to wait another 3 hours. When the time comes, the ticket usher stops you from bringing nasi lemak and cha-kuay-teow into the hall.So you're forced to line up another 10 minutes in the snack bar. By then, you're already late for the show. Lampu sudah tutup(light is off) when you go in. Oooppss.. terjatuh(fall off) and very one laughs at you. Next,the cinema bores you with 15 minutes of iklan(advertisment). Frankly speaking, I dunno why the government ban 'triple x' VCDs when all the beer commercials in the cinema feature sluts dancing around. Later, your handphone rings and everyone boos you.At last, the show ends but you'll need to beratur(line up) through the smelly exit.After 30 mintues, you notice that your handphone is lost. The only thing good about cinemas is the fact that you can throw kua-chi on the floor.

4. Customer Friendly Sellers
Buying VCDs from the stall is like dining in a luxury restaurant. First, those blond hair sellers will greet you with 'leng-chai'. It's now time to order the meal. If you know what to order,they will search the title for you.But if you're undecided, these fellas will suggest some meals for you.Strangely, all movies (according to them) are nice to watch. When you've finished, here comes the main course. The rectangular box containing all the finest artistic international stuff.(porn?)..And you can bargain too! But when you buy VCDs from Speedy Video, the shopassistants will stand few meters away from you, with their arms tied and eyes alert, thinking that you're another shoplifter.

5. Beli barang buatan Malaysia
The title says it all. No need to say more.

6. You go to the movies...while watching the most suspense part in a love movie....as the guy and girl are about to kiss...all of a sudden, the screen goes into matrix mode. And then it changes to some dull scene. Doesn't this sound familiar? Say thank you to our censorship board for helping us removethe "naughty" parts. You never get this when you buy pirated CDs.

7. 6 years ago, piracy was a minority because of the original CD pricing and contents. 3 years ago, they increased original CD prices by 70% and say it's because of import duties, tax and other crap.While at the same time, the pirated CD prices drop by 50% - 70%.Customers would prefer to buy from a sale right?

8. Piracy helps students to learn new programs at a reduced price cost. If every student is going to spend RM800 just to buy Adobe Photoshop, then Malaysia would lag behind in the computer graphics industry. So in the long run, Malaysia's economic status becomes better with more knowledgeable citizens.

9. As people are willing to spend money on pirated CDs but not that willing to buy original cds, they are circulating the money and helping to increasethe GDP.

10. Pirated VCDs offer the latest movies, even before they are shown in theU.S.! Compare this to original VCDs,where you have to wait for a few months after the movie is first released.

This one also my friend sent to me, just have a laugh!!! But i did agree some of the reason..haha.

F1 Road show at 1U

Yesterday after we had our breakfast we head to 1U. Actually I want to go Ikiano but 1+2dad said there very boring so we want to 1U.

When we reached there we saw another road show held at the main center of new wing. Last week was Honda and this week is Petronas. We didn’t go there cause my kids saw another road show more excited.

It is Michelin counter nearby Parkson. My kids saw the Michelinman walk around and take photos with the customer. We didn’t bring along the camera but there had a guy (wear a Michelin uniform) took photos for us. First I though they need some photos for their show but after we took photos 1+2dad told me we can download the pic at their site at certain date. Wow!! New things we just know.

There also had many game and lucky draw. Changing F1 wheels and counts the Michelinman how many wheels on this body. We get a key chain and a cap from the lucky draw.

After that we walk around, pass by a high tech shop that inside got some of very high tech toys. The robot so attractive us it cost about RM 400 and a dinosaur too. Both also can use remote control to control them and it got sound sensitive too. The dinosaur just like a pet, you can touch his head and under his mouth he will show lovely like a cat. Another thing that attractive us is the dinosaur can communicate with the big robot (this cost about RM 1k plus). It will follow what the big robot asks him to do.

About the robot (small), it can do about 64 moves. It can pick up things and other but the staff didn’t show us. Some more can download new program from the site. 1+2dad may buy it as my son 4 year’s old (2nd May) birthday gift for him. For me I think it not his toys but is more for our toys..haha.

Malaysians: (pointing the door) can ar?

WHEN ENTERTAINING
Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
Malaysians: Don't be shy, lah!

WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE
Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money.
Malaysians: Where got?

WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER
Britons: I'd prefer not to do that, if you don't mind.
Malaysians: Doe-waaaan!

IN DISAGREEING ON A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
Britons: Err. Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you're coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
Malaysians: You mad, ah?

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE
Britons: Excuse me, but could you please ! lower your voice, I'm trying to concentrate over here.
Malaysians: Shaddap lah!

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU
Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for some time. Do I know you?
Malaysians: See what, see what!?

WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION
Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.
Malaysians: Die-lah!!!

WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED
Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
Malaysians: Wat happen Why laidat??? ADUI!!! (jumping to conclusion)

WHEN SOME ONE DID SOMETHING WRONG
Britons: This isn't the way to do it here let me show you.
Malaysians: Hoi!!!U pig ar laidat also doe no how to do!!!!

Successful Toilet Train

I start to let my gals toilet train when they were 18 months, about 8 months trained finally successful.

Actually I stop trained them to go toilet pee after a month tried. They still dun understand b4 want to pee need to tell me, I had to remind them every hour to bring them go toilet. I still gave them wear cloth nappy when I start train them but finally I know they already get used to pee in the nappy so they wont tell me.

Later I let them wear pants but still cant, so I decided to stop train them till lately about a month ago I start again. Why I start again?? Cause when I bring them to park ppl ask me why still let them wear nappy, can start toilet train them. I’m abit ‘kiasu’ mommy so I start again the toilet train and of cause they already 2 years old still wearing the nappy not so nice to see.

Try again, this time I let them wear pants whole day without replace back the nappy. First week still fail, but still try again. I let them sit on the potty when they want pee, first few time they scare of the potty. They scare sit on a hole and cant pee or poo on the potty.

Try few time, finally they can get used of it. Every time I remind them to pee in the potty that I put near the living hall. Finally I successes and now they will go pee and poo in that potty. If at upstairs, they will call me bring them go shhhh shhhhh (pee) or nggggg nggggg (poo).

No more cloth nappy to used and no need flow fold those cloth nappy. If I go nearby shopping and not for long I will bring them to toilet once finished shopping at shopping center, so long no accident happen yet. Later I will try not let them wear diaper to go shopping that need more hours to stay at shopping center, hope it will success too.

Mother Tongue

My previous post blog about the language we used at home with the kids and had 1 blogger comment about the mother tongue we seldom used nowadays.

Tracy comment:

1+2 mom, have to borrow ur space since u started the subject.Actually, how many of us do speak in our mother tongue nowadays?

Come to think of it. My father's a Hakka, my stepfather's a Hokkien, my mom's a Cantonese. I was under the care of my grandma and she spoke Cantonese with me. My PILs are Hokkiens but they speak Cantonese with my hubby. So, both of us (I'm a banana in Mandarin and hubby's no good in English) communicate in a mixture of Cantonese, English and Mandarin, so how do we speak ur mother tongue with our girl? Hee, hee, confused?

Then our girl will put the blame on us and we should put the blame on our parents and so on ....???*roll eyes and wondering*

In my case, my father is Hokkien and my mother is Cantonese and I born in KL so my parents scare we dunno how to communicate with other ppl that they usually speak Cantonese so they spoke Cantonese with us. Luckily my grandmom (father side) stayed together with us and she dunno other languages but just know Hokkien, so I still know some Hokkien but long time didn’t speak most of the word already forgot (since my grandmom pass away I didn’t speak Hokkien).

My hubby side, his father is Hakka (hor bo 河婆) and his mother is Teohchew. They spoke Hakka with his father but Cantonese with his mother, and between siblings they spoke Mandarin. They very less talk to his father so I very less hear they say Hakka at home. Because of very less ppl used this type of Hakka so my MIL (mother in law) said no need teach my children say Hakka.

Last time I ask my father speak Hokkien with my children because I notice quite a lot of ppl using Hokkien in so many places. Maybe my father didn’t speak Hokkien with us so he also dunwan teach them and my children 1 week once see my father, useless to teach them Hokkien. I hope my children can be multilanguager too.

I still blame my father why dun speak with us in Hokkien, nowadays very less ppl talk their mother tongue maybe soon or later our generation dunno what is own mother tongue are.

I know like some area they still used back their mother tongue eg. At Penang, Klang and Johor usually they used Hokkien. My friend told me, if you in Klang or Penang need to buy drink or food at store. Those ppl speak Hokkien they gave more and count cheap if other then Hokkien they gave less and count expensive. I tried when I went to Penang, we had our lunch at those food store. My father get very cheap price when he order mix rice but I and 1+2dad were very expensive. I know 1 slogan they always said : Ka Ki Lang, Pa Si Bo Xiang Gang (in Hokkien) (in English means same race of ppl, been killed also nvm) (in Manderin means 自己人,打死没关系). They very help same race of ppl dunno is true or not.

Language

What language you introduce to your child when they born? Did you all decided b4 they born or after or like you fell what you want (use what language) to talk to them?

For us we decided after the baby was born. Firstly I (mommy) will use English to talk to my son, 1+2dad used Cantonese, my mother in law (MIL) will use Mandarin and my father in law (FIL) will use his ‘kampung’ language.

Later my MIL said that ‘kampung’ language very less used so asked my FIL to stop talk with my son with his ‘kampung’ language then talk to him with Mandarin. About 1+2dad, finally he talks to my son in English. Why?? Cause when my son know to talk he will answer 1+2dad in English so 1+2dad lazy to explain what he said and slowly he talk to him in English.

My son start talking are very slow (about 2 years plus), maybe we introduced him 2 languages in the same time so he need sometime to differentiate both language. I think maybe because most of the time I stay with him so he can talk well in English. But in Mandarin he will mix with English, he tries his best to speak Mandarin with my IL (in law).

Sometime ago I saw an article about when and how many language to introduce to the kids. It said better when they are about 0 to 3 years old and 2 languages in the same time. They can pick up very fast and they will use their brain to think the logic way when they grow.

This few days, my son tried to say Cantonese. Those children like to talk English, when they talk Cantonese are very funny. He understand what we chat but he cant answer in Cantonese. I heard he said Cantonese, so I play play with him and chat with him in Cantonese. He keep say the same word like ‘ni zhou meh yeh?’ (what are you doing?), later he laugh and laugh then dunwan talk to me again in Cantonese.

How about you all?

Snatching

No!! Not I’m been snatched by thief but my kids like to play snatching game at home. They play everyday at home, even my twins gal also like to snatch each other toys or thing.

Someone asked me : “will your twins will fight or snatch each other things??” I will answered :“why not?? They also kids.” My twins daughter like to snatch each other things when ever they saw either one holding something like toys, pencil, box and etc.

They even fight for the place they stand or sit. Sometime I carry or play with 1 of them when the other saw sure want the same thing as well. The snatching game sometime will end of become fighting game..haha. Sometime saw them fighting really very funny.

Here the story goes :

Carrie was holding a paper, suddenly Carol pass by and snatches the paper. Carrie saw her paper been snatched she very sad and start cry.

Carrie : Give me! give me! *follow her sister*
Carol : *run run run with that paper and avoid Carrie snatch back the paper*

Carrie : *cry louder* Give me! Give me!
Carol : *walk around with the paper*

Carrie : *fell very unhappy she start bit(beat) her sister*
Carol : *fell pain and cry but still holding the paper* Dunwan! Dunwan!

Carrie : *bit(beat) again*
Carol : *bit(beat) back Carrie cause she still bit her*

Carrie and Carol : *both cry so loud and mommy come*

1+2mom : dunwan play that paper! Give me the paper! If dunwan share the paper all dun play.

Finally I’m the winner of this game..hahaha.

Note : Ops..sorry guys, wrong spelling actually is beat not bit.

Toys

My son got lots of toys, include the free gift from Happy Meal from McD. Almost every week we bought 1 toy for him, if we didn’t buy he still got his free toys from McD.

His toys are every where, you can found it even at bathroom or in his daddy car. I kept his toys till everyday I argue with him who to keep toys. Finally I found 1 solution that I play a game with him see who can keep the toys faster. So from now on, every time keep toys need to keep with him and sometime I lazy help him keep together still got argument with him.

1+2dad always said why I so annoying when ask son keep the toys, why not let him play till at nite he slept then I go keep. I said I dun like the place massy, so need him keep the toys after he had play and can make it a good habit.

I also ask 1+2dad go keep toys if he play the toys with his son and his son dunwan to keep. Let him know not easy to keep toys form morning till nite.

Now the gals grow up and will fight for the same toys, we need to buy 3 set of the same toys for them. If 1 missing they fight for it, I will keep the toys if they dun wanna share each other or play together.

The old toys they didn’t play actually I need to keep but when I keep the toys my son saw it he said he still wanna play, or someday he remember he will ask me find out for him. So the toys still in the living hall, and mass up together keep in the corner.
