Ours Birthday!!!

Both of our 'lunar' birthday falls on the same day and ours birthday are only 1 days apart. So usually both of us will celebrate together. Although is just a simple cake cutting celebration, but both of us are already very happy especially Eugene. This time round, his gugu bought the cake which he like the cartoon very much! Although is a cake for both of us, but it seems more like his cake instead...but anyway we are really happy on that day!

Initially, we wanted to let him celebrate his 3yr old birthday at the childcare together with his classmates, but we are too late as we need to inform the CC in advance. So we decide next year's birthday will be the one.

Starting Childcare in 2009

2008 ended and a New 2009 started. It had been months since Eugene's blog is been updated.
For a new start, there a total new environment waiting for Eugene to explore himself.
We had decided to enrol Eugene into a childcare centre as we hope that he can learn more and be more independent by himself.

1st & 2nd day (05-06 Jan 09) :
Eugene started his childcare life under my companionship as i dun want him to be scare upon arriving in a total new environment without anyone he know by his side. Upon at the centre, there are many children around his age and as well as those much more older than him. He likes to play with the older boys which he call them 'Gor Gor' and dun want to mix around with the children who are in the same class with him. He tend to run away to the class where the older boys are and the teacher will come and get him back into his class again. I then bring him back home around evening time.

3rd Day ( 07 Jan 09):
MIL bring him to the centre today. The teacher even ask him to say Goodbye to my MIL and then bring him inside to put his schoolbag and drinking bottle. MIL then peek from outside into the classroom, Eugene is inside there looking at storybook with his teacher. MIL decided to bring him home in the afternoon although should be a full day at the centre. She afraid Eugene can't adapt so fast to the environment....when teacher bring him out, he immediately cried when he saw MIL.

4th Day (08 Jan 09):
Today i am sick but i still followed him secretly behind while MIL bring him to the centre. I tried not to let him see me as i afraid he might want me to accompany him into the class. Once inside the class, he cried after putting his bag and bottle and start looking for MIL. His teacher carried and pacify him and he stopped crying after a while.
12pm - MIL asked me to go and see how Eugene in the centre. Once i reached the centre, i peeked from the windows and saw him eating his lunch but he was crying while eating his lunch. I decided i should observe a bit more before i decided to bring him back. He then took his bath....but he keep on crying when teacher asked him to nap. He just keep on crying for mummy and MIL. I then decided is time to bring him back as the previous day he had fever after he returned from the centre. Teacher was asking him to say Goodbye to all other teachers but once he saw me, same lah, he cried immediately.

5th Day ( 09 Jan 09) :
Everything happened just the same just that he keep on saying he dun want to go to school. He cried on the way to school. But this time when MIL went to fetch him at 12plus, Eugene form teacher said dun bring him back so early since he is not crying. Let him try to nap here so that he can adapt more to the enviroment. So Eugene nap at the centre and went home at 4plus.

Fruits & Vegetables Harvesting 13.09.2008

Last nite, hb told me that there will be a fruits and vegetables harvesting at the opposite block multi-carpark rooftop at tomorrow morning 9am. The RC had been planting fruits and vegetables since more than 2 years ago and every week they will open up for the residents to go and view. This time round is time for harvesting.
We decided to bring Eugene there to take a look. This will not be the first time that Eugene went there.....he did went for the first hatvesting when he was very small that time so he dun have any memories regarding it. Hope he has a good time there tomorrow.....

Early in the morning, it started to rain and we thought that the harvesting might be cancelled. But as the time came nearer, the rain became smaller and hb saw that there are many residents at the rooftop there so we also went there although it is still drizzling. Upon reaching there, the RC chairman already showing the residents how to prepare aloe vera ( very big one) and of course, fruits tasting there. We decided to go and look around showing and telling Eugene whatever we can see there.

One of the few fruits we see , pomelo is one of them but not for harveting now as it is still very small. We told Eugene that fruit is call "pomelo" and he will repeat after us....then after he saw papaya. The funny thing is after that we came back to the pomelo , he go and call it papaya...hahaha....)

Anyway, i can see that Eugene is quite happy to see so many things and he also get the chance to have a feel of the fruits. We also brought back many harveting items.

A trip to the airport 18.07.2008

Eugene's grandpa (my father) was going to China for a business trip, so we decided to send him to the airport as well as to have our dinner together at the airport. We wanted to let Eugene take a look at the aeroplanes.Upon reaching the airport, we went to the foodcourt at T3 for dinner before we went to walk around T3. We walked past the NTUC just after the foodcourt and Eugene took a liking to the lego car. Grandpa decided to buy one for him and this is the one.

Some pics took at the airport:

A Happy Eugene.....:)

Eugene knew the names

Eugene sounds very happy when MIL ask him to read out the Chinese name of the animals on the chart to me. MIL will point to the animal and he will read out, however he need to be remind of some of the first word before he can read out the whole. For me, i try to ask him to read out on his own. He already knew all the names of the animals shown here.
Hopefully he will also learn the English pronounciation of the animals soon.

Learning and Playing

Eugene had started to learn and read more words when people teach him. He got 3 charts at my MIL's house and he had learnt to memorise the aminals chart. I am quite happy that he knew how to read them, he better at memorise Chinese words more than the English alphabets. Now he also like to repeat what he heard from the TV programmes and advertisement.

Yesterday, i am quite happy that he knew how to say 'Mummy i luv you'. Last time i used to teach him but he never want to say. So yesterday, i took his pacifier and want him to repeat after me so that i will then return him his pacifier. Surprisely, when i said the words (which i wanted him to repeat after me) : 'Mummy, i' but before i finish my line....he said " Mummy, i luv you!" and when i want him to say again , he said "i luv Mummy". I AM SO HAPPY WHEN I HEARD THIS.

Eugene's toys from GuGu:

A 'Carl' Activity Book and 3 learning books.

Two soft toy from 'Car'

A Big and soft 'McQueen' which Eugene treat it as his car.

Eugene likes cars so much that his gugu even buy the car magnets and stickers for him to play She even buy him a toothbrush which a car was attached at the end of the handle.

Potty Training

Finally, Eugene is potty-trained although i can't said is 100% successful but the credit goes to my MIL. For so long we had been wanting Eugene to learn how to pee and poo in the potty, but he dun seems to like the idea of doing his business in it. But now my MIL had succeeded. For many times, MIL did not put on the diaper on him after Eugene took his bath. She will tell him to go and pee in the potty, however it failed when Eugene pee on the floor and then he will ask my MIL to go and see. Once, he even poo on his short, because of this case my MIL scolded and beat him on his buttocks...of course what he does is only cry lor. For many times, he still does not want to poo in the potty and if he want to poo, he will go and take his diaper and ask MIL to put on for him. So once my MIL put on the diaper for him, later he will poo in it.

After weeks passed, i think he know what he does are wrong after getting scolding for many times. However, he will wait until he is very 'urgent' then he will pee or poo so sometimes not in time to the potty.

An incident which happen at my MIL's place is she told me is once he was very urgent until he haven't really pulled down his short and he quickly sit on the potty. Luckily, MIL quickly got him up and pulled down his short.

Another recent incident which happen on 10th Aug is both hb and i was watching the olympic games in the living room and this Eugene was hiding in my bedroom. Suddenly he came running to me and said to me in chinese 'Yi Da Li', i thought he was referring to the olympic games as i did said 'Yi Da Li' (Italy) but then i saw him touching his short so immediately pooing came to my mind. So he is not referring to the olympic games but is his poo. Alamak, he poo on his short. We all had a good laugh :)

So now we still training him so that he can be fully potty-trained.
JIA YOU.....JIA YOU.........JIA YOU!!!

When Eugene see this picture, he will said 'Poo Poo".......

GuGu's Birthday 09.08.2008

Today is Singapore 43th Birthday as well as hb's sister-Sharlene birthday. So we all go to MIL's place to celebrate for her. We had steamboat and Eugene loves the 'Chang Shou Mian' which MIL cook not to mention me loves too! Sharlene's good friends and boyfriend are also there for the celebration. One of her friend bring along her 2 young kids ( 1 older girl and 1 younger boy) who are a few years older than Eugene. Once they came, both of them gather around Eugene's toys and that the start of the kids' war. They played happily but also too 'roughly' especially with the boy.
Everything ended after the cake cutting and then we procced home at around 11pm.

Eugene likes this 'Dinosaur' (Bu Dao Weng) which his gugu bought for him!

Oh, Eugene likes the eggs.....

This is always one of Eugene favourites when we went to Compasspoint! Many times he doesn't want to leave when we wanted to go home and we have to coax him until he is willingly to leave....

National Day 09.08.2008

Happy National Day 2008!!!

Decided to work hard and updates more of Eugene often. I feel that i seldom take any pictures of Eugene as i dun have a camera of my own. This came to my mind that my mum is not using her digital camera often so i borrowed from her.

Today is the 1st day i start taking pics for Eugene.

This morning, we decided to go to Burger King at Compasspoint for breakfast. Eugene is quite happy when we reach there. His daddy went to park the car, upon arriving at BK...i let Eugene sit in the baby chair provided at BK. He was ok at first, but after a while he keep asking me to go and buy the food. I told him we had to wait for daddy to come first, but he was still impatient. While waiting for his daddy, i took some pics of him.

Maybe he is thinking " Mummy, can i have my breakfast?"....hahhaaaa

Mummy : Eugene, we have to wait for Daddy to come first ok...

Eugene: Have to wait somemore, why why why......Daddy quickly come!!!

After having his breakfast, we went shopping around Compasspoint and Eugene had a bit of the ice-cream i left for him.

Saturday, July 19, 2008

I haven't been posting about Eugene for more than 7 months already. Now seldom take photos when bringing him out as it quite difficult to capture nice pics especially he so active. He also very naughty when we bring him out that each time when we thought of bringing him for shopping...we will have second thoughts. Unless it is really necessary, if not we tried not to bring him to places that are crowded.

Will try to update more often....

The Golden Compass 05.12.2007

Today i got a pair of free movie tickets from my colleague. It was the show that i wanted to see 'The Golden Compass'. Actually wanted to bring Eugene for the movie, but time not allowed as it was too rush. Anyway, i was thinking maybe Eugene will ve scared by the fighting parts in the movie. But i do enjoy this movie...thanks to my colleague which i get to see for free and there also popcorn and coke together.

Standard Chartered Marathon 02.12.2007

Daddy took part in the Standard Chartered 42.195km Marathon. This is not the 1st time he took part in Marathon, but is the first time for the whole Marathon and he took about 5hrs plus to complete. Mummy and granny bring me to Marina Square there to wait for daddy. We were there much earlier so we went for some window shopping but most of the shops there are not yet open for business. So i have some fun in the kiddy rides (but no coins put in).

New Haircut 01.12.2007

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon!!! After taking my lunch, i suddenly have the urge to give Eugene a new haircut. Although it was my first attempt, i do have a little confidence that i was able to give Eugene a new look. I started off by cutting the hair behind, follow by around the ear there....although Eugene kept moving his head but i still manage to do it. After finishing, it feel it was really a great work of mine and i felt so happy.....but there is still somemore to be done. I feel the hair around his forehead is a bit too long so i decide to cut short . On no...what have i done???? It totally went out of what in my mind. I decided to try and see whether i can save what i done. Too bad! Now i need to bring him to the barber liao....

Upon reaching the Malay barber shop, there was 3 barbers busy cutting hair for adults and children. I waited and waited in anxiety, thought it was Eugene's turn but the barber called the other guy so i have to wait again thinking how come nobody want to attend to me. Then another one finished, but still no one attended to me until another barber finished. Then they asked me what i wanted, i showed them my artwork and they decided to shave Eugene bald.

This is how he look after the shaving:

Putting a cap for him will look nicer!

New Food

Recently, Eugene is eating this new multigrain rice for his meals during weekend which at first is not intention for him. It will be porridge for lunch and rice for dinner but sometimes i lazy so it will be porridge for the whole day. This multigrain rice is recommend by my colleague as she said it is quite nutritious compare to the normal white rice we eat. So i decided to give it a try. My colleague teach me to add rice to cook together if not surely not enough and it will finish up very fast.

It was only during when i was having my dinner and Eugene happen to take a mouthful of it and he wanted more that make me want to cook this for him. Afraid that he might not be able to digest all the grains so sometimes i will mix with normal rice.

Greenmax Fine Multi Grains

This is how it look after cooking with the brown rice.
Oh it may look like quite hard, but actually it can be soft if correct amount of water is used.

Eugene version of "Mambo" HAPPY FEET...!!!

Eugene likes the cartoon character of Mambo (not sure spell correctly) in the movie of Happy Feet. When the part of Mambo going to dance, he will prepare himself when he hear the music and then when the music end he will stop. Managed to capture this recently.

Sofa as what it seems to be

I always like to join contests for fun. So i did participated in the National Day Singpost contest and i won the consolation prize. One of the little prize inside was the 'Superman Returns' sofa...which i need to pump a lot of air so that it can become a sofa. This is how Eugene reacts to it..

A full blown 'sofa'....

Eugene 1st try sitting on it!

Wow....looks like he enjoy sitting on it leh :)
