Up in the sky to north

Lilypie 1st Birthday Ticker

I flew on a plane sooner that expected. Ah Kong (paternal grandfather) is not well lately and Mummy and I had to fly up to Penang last minute to join Papa there 2 weeks back.

Mummy was worried the whole time as I've been coughing and also had runny nose. She was grateful that Papa's colleague, Uncle K was also flying with us as he had to go to Penang to work. At least if Mummy had to go to the loo, he's around to carry me. He also helped in carrying my bag for me which was really heavy...Mummy packed alot of my things (she got carried away again).

The flight was cancelled so we had to wait for the next one (lucky again that Uncle K was with us). So we had late lunch at the airport and I had my early dinner there too except that I didnt finish my food.

The plane journey was kinda ok except that I cannot stop fidgetting around and cannot sit still. I was supposed to be strapped on when the plane took off but I fussed so much that I managed to get lose from the strap. Mummy tried to feed me this funny drink which I declined totally. It was sour, seems it's pear juice and tasted really horrible. I kept moving about and disturbed this uncle sleeping next to us by touching his hand and watch, Mummy had to keep apologizing to him. Mummy made me stand up and I was playing with this uncle and aunty sitting behind us.

Towards the end when we were about to land, suddenly my ears hurt and I cried but it lasted for a while only and all was ok after that. While waiting to get out of the plane, Mummy left me to sit on my own on the seat. All the aunties and uncles around me who were standing all looked at me smiling. I felt so overwhelmed that once Mummy opened her arms to carry me, I quickly jumped to her.

This is my third time in Penang and I was not feeling too well. I had fever during my stay and was coughing alot with a very runny nose. Had to take medication throughout. Papa joked that the eldest (Ah Kong) and the youngest (me) wasn't feeling well. Ah Kong and Ah Por were very happy to see me and we made most of our trip spending time with them. After 2 nights with them, Papa, Mummy and I went home by car. We hope to go back and visit them soon. Take care Ah Kong and Ah Por, see you two soon!

My next flight will take place just over a month's time and I hear it is longer than the one I just took...Mummy swore to use diluted adult's juice this time instead of the baby juice she got me.

Deeparaya adventures

Lilypie 1st Birthday Ticker

Papa is missing again... and this time round, in his absence, I have alot of people around me. It started with Kakak (Aiyee's assistant) hanging around the house and then, there's also Ah Mai (Papa's sister). Ah Mai came back for a week as Ah Kong (paternal grandfather) is not feeling too well. Then Ah Mai left for the States and this was when Mummy and I came over to Ai Yee's (Mummy's sister) place to stay.

It's been alot of changes for me that I'm was very clingy to Mummy initially. I don't usually go to Mummy and lie on her chest but I have been these few days. It took me awhile to warm up with everyone but I am ok now with all especially with Grandma and she's really happy that I wanted her today. She's been complaining that Mummy doesn't bring me over that often (and hence, I'm not familiar with them).

Everyone dotes on me here and gives me all the attention I want. If Mummy is not around, I get away with alot of things but if she's around, she spoils the fun for me. Like last nite, I learnt how to scream and everyone laughed when I screamed. Mummy told them not to react to my screaming but they all ignored her when she went and had her bath so I was screaming all the way. What fun!!!

Here's the pics with my cousins, RW cher cher (big sister) and JT kor kor (big brother)

And this one, I've learnt how to watch tv with them (to Mummy's disapproval) once I wake up early in the morning.

Papa, when are you coming home? If you're reading this, Mummy says she wanna loads of goodies. Goodies sound good, I wanna some too ok?!!! Hurry up and come back ya.

My duck-ducks

Lilypie 1st Birthday Ticker

Let me introduce to you my duck-ducks...it started with the musical one that hangs in the car above my car seat. This is quite special because it plays music when you pull the string underneath it. It plays 'Lullaby and Goodnight'. This keeps me entertained in the car. Only at 7 months I managed to learn how to play the music myself and don't need mummy's or papa's help to play the music for me.

It's a pity that I don't have this musical duck-duck anymore in the car. When the first one got spoilt (the string got stuck), papa bought another one from the same store but it also got spoilt not long after that so I'm now duck-duckless in the car.

It's okay, I got the other duck-ducks at home...these duck-ducks keep me company when I'm having my bath. I love having them around and I know it's bath time when I see them. The bigger one you see in the picture, this is my prize trophy! One day, we were out in the shopping mall and mummy was about to pay for something at the counter. Papa noticed this big duck-duck sitting on the counter and pass it to me and I refused to let it go after that. So mummy had to pay for it too and I was holding the duck-duck throughout our stay at the mall and also in the car till we got home. I even slept holding the duck-duck in my hands. Mummy told papa that lesson learnt from this is to never ever pass toys to me anymore in the store, especially expensive toys! Lucky for her this duck-duck was on discount and it is not expensive.
