My 4th Birthday*

*Yes, this is another very backdated post considering with the fact that I will be 5 in 3 months time. Don't blame me that it took sooo long to do update this. :)

I celebrated my 4th birthday last year on 31st December. First thing I did when I got up was to open my birthday presents. They were actually under our Christmas tree but I had to put these aside to wait for my actual birthday.

I didn't go to Aunty Ng's that morning as I had a date with papa. He took me to One Utama to watch Princess & The Frog. We had McDonald's for brunch and I also had the chance to play at the playground as well as sat on several musical rides (something which I hardly ever get the chance to when mummy is around). I even had popcorn while watching the movie and I was really happy!

Later in the late afternoon, we met mummy at home and I was greeted by my birthday cake that I was to celebrate at Aunty Ng's with all my friends. I personally asked for this type of cake "Diamond Castle Chocolate Cake" and I was soooooo happy seeing it.

We went over to Aunty Ng's in the early evening with my birthday cake and this round, no party packs. Mummy said from now onwards (until I have an actual party), there will no longer be any party packs. So since I brought my leftover popcorn from the movie, I gave some to my friends who wanted them.

my friends all curious to see what present i had

it's a barbie doll set (i told Aunty Ng what I wanted for my birthday, she also gave me barbie doll last year)

Later that evening, we celebrated my birthday dinner at Dome's. Mummy actually wanted TGIF but they had a fixed menu to usher in the New Year that night so we all settled for Dome's instead.

walking around the restaurant with my mei-mei

after we had our dinner, i was greeted with my complimentary birthday cake by one of the staff

and then, the rest of them came and sang to me. i felt like a princess, okay a very shy one!

actually, what i really wanted for my birthday was some princess jewelry which my parents said to wait for my prince charming to give them to me one day!

I had another birthday cake, made by Aunty Ng specially for me. A doll jelly cake! She also made one for me for my 3rd birthday

This was how I celebrated my 4th birthday last year....wonder if I will celebrate my 5th birthday this year end (just over 3 months time) with a big bang?!!! :D

Camerons - November 2009*

*another very backdated post (and there will be more to come)

We went back to Camerons in November last year although we were there the month before celebrating my mei-mei's 1st birthday. Mummy had a company's trip cum annual dinner so we all decided to tag along but we stayed at my grandpa's apartment.

Since the previous month, we didn't go to the waterfalls, we decided to stop at the waterfalls this round. Papa and mummy had no choice as I kept asking them about it till they gave in. So here are some of the pictures...

and with any other hoildays, i get to eat my junkfood! :D

had to be mummy's model again

We didn't take much pictures after that as the weather up at Camerons were soooo gloomy as it was raining everyday! I did however go to my regular spot which is at the playground. Sorry no pictures as mummy and my mei-mei didn't go as they were stuck at the apartment. Mei-mei was not feeling very well.

Since the weather was so gloomy, we stayed indoors most of the time. Not a place to visit during rainy season. If you want to see more pics of my mei-mei and her updates during this trip, you can visit her blog at

Christmas 2009*

*The title says it all, a very backdated post indeed. :)

Our Christmas last year was good, we put up our Christmas tree about 3 weeks before Christmas and my mei-mei and I helped papa set it up.
I put up the star!

A pretty pose with our decorated Christmas tree

On Christmas eve, we spent it at my Kai Yeh's (Godfather) parents place. Waiting for our presents, there were so many since all who came are suppose to get all the kids presents. I like this rule! :D

Although it was Christmas eve, I was allowed to open one present and it was from my Kai Yeh and it was a princess jewelry box! I love it!

On Christmas day itself, first thing in the morning, we were allowed to open all the presents I got from everybody else including mummy and papa. There will be more later in the afternoon when we are at Uncle Ivan's place.
this is the barbie doll umbrella that Aunty Ng (my caretaker at the daycare) got me

Later in the afternoon, we went over to Uncle Ivan's place and this was what greeted us....
and of course, the spectacular view too...this is one place you wanna be to see fireworks in town!

A pretty pose!

I went for a swim with my cousins but I only hung out at the baby pool, I didn't dare join them in the big pool, even with the one that has a huge water slide

We came back, got changed just to open our presents!

My cousin, Ro Wyn, distributing the presents

That night, we headed over to our Peh Deh's (papa's brother) place for dinner.
Since I cannot bully Shane, our little cousin, I was disturbing my mei-mei - see how Arnie on TV was so fascinated

the main purpose we were there, to open another present! :D

but my mei-mei and I enjoyed helping Shane opened his instead and also were eyeing on his new toy!

Nice Christmassy cupcakes that looks too good to be eaten!

That's our celebration for Christmas 2009, I'm definitely looking forward to this year's Christmas because not long after that would be my birthday! :D

On swimming

As much as I love playing with water all these while, I still have my fears and will only want to hang out in the baby pool. I will need my floats for comfort and rarely will lift my legs off the floor of the swimming pool. I will never put my face in the water and I will never want to sit on water slides!

Since June this year, papa has been taking us to our pool over the weekends for swimming. Initially, I will always play safe and hung out on my own in my own comfort and will not slide down the wall slide at our pool. But when I saw how comfortable my mei-mei was with the water and her floats, I started gaining confidence but I must always have my floats on.

I even dare to go down like this

And then I dare to lift my legs up after seeing how my mei-mei enjoy this

Lately, I do not need my floats at all while I'm in the baby pool unless I want to float in the water. This is a huge achievement for me.

Now I can go into the deep pool but I need to have my floats on and I will do one round of swimming, of course, with my head always above the water. :)
