Excess baggage

Some photos earlier when Muppet and I went to the airport to see Simon off.

Muppet riding in Daddy's luggage

I think she knows Simon is leaving, she was sort of giving him the cold shoulder

She wouldn't let go of Simon's legs for some time. Aww :(

Bagong status ni Alan!

Sabi nya parang nagkikita lang yata kami kapag nagbabago ang status nya hehe. Medyo totoo nga pero at least ngayon, magandang balita - in a relationship na sya! Magra-ramen dapat kami sa Orchard Plaza pero sarado pala sila ng Lunes kaya naghanap na lang kami ng ibang makakainan sa loob ng mall. At dito kami napadpad sa restaurant na Sumo wrestler ang tema. Ang may-ari daw nito ay dating Sumo Professional sa Japan at ang pangalan ng restaurant na Chanko Nada ay hango sa "Chanko" na pagkain ng mga sumo wrestlers. At sulit! Dito ako nakatikim ng pinakamasarap na salmon sashimi sa buong Singapore! Medyo mahal para sa 5 piraso for 18 dollars pero sarap naman! Umorder din kami ng maraming yakitori - eto nga si Alan masayang-masaya sa picture:

In a relationship! Yahoo! (Yun yatang Sumo wrestler na nasa poster sa taas ng ulo ni Alan yung may-ari ng Chanko Nada)
Sarap ng sashimi na'to!

Nakuha pa naming mag ice cream sa Cold Stone Creamery bago ko sya hinatid sa bahay nya. Congrats sa bagong status at sana ay "this is it!" na ito para sa yo :)

Running again

I foolishly signed up for a 10k run on April fool's day. With less than 1 month to train, I asked Anetski and Ayie to join my first run in months in Marina Barrage. I tried and really ran for the first 25 minutes but I had to stop because I was so hungry, when I met Ayie and Anetski they too were hungry so we decided to give up running and just look for a place to eat. Simon and the muppet were waiting for us at the Marina Barrage's rooftop.

I suggested to have dinner at our favorite turkish resturant in East Coast and that's where we found out that it was their last night in East Coast :(. They're going to tear down the entire Marine Cove(McDonalds, Scruffy Murphy's, Beach Hut, Coffee Bean, etc) which is quite sad because we always hang out here after a run or a bike ride in East Coast. There is a small amusement park with kiddie rides next to the turkish place so one of us would take muppet for a 1 dollar ride in one of the cars and she enjoyed it! Maybe too much that she demanded to stay there haha.

No more! The car just stopped moving.

Friday night!

My message to Simon who was in India, my mom volunteered to baby-sit for the night so I could go out with the girls :)

So this was my first night out with the girls after getting pregnant! Wow it's been more than 2 years since I last got drunk. It didn't take long for my first glass of mojito to do its job. We even went for a movie afterwards to oggle at Ryan Reynolds, really really fun night and I hope I get to do it again. Ahem Simon I want another night out with the girls! :)

Ayie and Anetski discussing Anet's outfit for our next night out haha

We're already tipsy here

Saturday morning with muppet

One of the things I miss doing since muppet arrived is waking up late on weekends. As usual, yesterday she woke up just after 7am and won't let me sleep anymore, I thought some walking will do us both some good so we headed to the nearby library. I reckoned it would also be fun to see her go crazy with so many books, the last time we brought her there was a disaster when she vomited all over the carpeted floor. When we got there, the library was still closed - they open at 10am so I decided to wait at the Gelato cafe next to it. The cafe is called "Scoops of Art" and you can do all sorts of art projects there, they sell canvas and paints and other mini art kits and while waiting for our waffle with caramel banana and lemon gelato (yum!), the waitress gave us an activity placemat and crayons to play with. The muppet enjoyed playing with the crayons and eating her banana and gelato but when she started to try eating the crayons, I knew it was time to go.


waffle for breakfast!

The muppet was fascinated with all the books but she got distracted with all the people around and so she was more interested to run around and gawk at other kids. She also wanted to eat the stones inside the pot of plants - what a muppet - so it wasn't really the library experience I was expecting hehe. In the end, she pooped and got tired and didn't want to walk anymore so I quickly borrowed some books and carried the snoring muppet all the way to our house with the heavy books!


Trying to get the woman's attention

Tried to read but failed


The books I borrowed :)

It's not easy being green

I got these shiny green shoes months ago but I never got to wear them until today. Now I know why avoided wearing them, they were as uncomfortable as hell! They squeezed my toes and digged on my skin and I swear I'll never wear them ever again. When I dropped off muppet at her school though, one teacher exclaimed "nice shoes" haha they may be pretty but they're lethal. Anyway, muppet's teacher told me Ayesha is a "jealous one". She said the muppet loves to sit on a teacher's lap and when she sees another baby sitting on a teacher's lap, she would try and sit on the lap as well. And at the start of a reading session, when the teacher's just about to sit on the floor the muppet will run very fast so she'll be the one sit on the teacher's lap. Haha what a muppet.

Red Red, they call me red

Happy birthday Dr. Seuss!

It's Dr. Seuss birthday today and muppet is wearing her Cat in the hat dress. Two Christmases ago, Tita Anet gave to muppet her first Seuss books "Green eggs and ham" and "Oh, the places you'll go" and she love those books to bits. Since then, I got her "Cat in the hat", "Green eggs and ham" the full version, "ABC" and "Hop on pop" and her current favorite is "Hop on pop". Okay, so Grandad Jack thinks the book is a bit dodgy with Pat sitting on a bat and Red, Ned, Ted and Ed sleeping in one bed but muppet enjoys the rhymes and she laughs whenever I read it to her. And yes, Simon thinks "Oh, the places you'll go" is one of the scariest and darkest books because it describes how one will fail, and be lonely and alone and face monsters but the muppet loves it and she doesn't mind that it is such a long read. So, happy birthday Dr. Seuss and thank you for writing such funny and silly books! Maybe next year I'll try and cook some green eggs and ham!
“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
