Passport Photo

We're registering Vio to a new school next year!

Yeah, you read it correctly. I know it's only February, and next year is like... 10 more months to go?? LOL... Well, apparently the school we're enrolling him to is quite famous, and it's located quite near to our place. And the registration for nursery class next year is only for today! And... since the place is limited, it'll be ballotting system... Dotz..... Ballotting to go nursery?? Sounds nuts, I know.. Well, maybe I'm now included in the kiasu type of Singaporeans.. wahaha..

If the school's good and Vio like it, he can continue his kindergarten there too, coz they also have kindergarten programme. And the thing I like is that they have 3 hour programme: 1 hour English, 1 hour Chinese, and 1 hour play with music. I hope Vio will like it there! (Provided we got a place, of course..)

So.. to register to the school, we'll need his new passport photo.. Obviously his last passport photo is too outdated. It was like.. his photo when he was around 6 months old?? LOL... So we took photo of him again (at home, of course)... But as you might have guessed, taking a passport photo of him looking at the camera seriously is not easy. He likes to put on silly face (or his signature big big smile) in front of the camera!

And FINALLY... after many many countless tries... we got a decent one...

Of course with shadow on the side, it's not good enough to be a real passport photo... But well, it's only for school registration. Don't think they will mind a bit of shadow, hor? :D

"Vio Want Keys.."

Vio is getting stickier to me lately.. This morning he seemed sad to see me change into working outfit. He keep saying "don't want change.. don't want change.." meaning that he doesn't want me to change.. so he wants me to stay at home with him. As much as I want to, sadly I need to go to work..

Just before I head out to the door, I asked him for a hug and kiss. But this morning he was so busy with his new-found ball (after a night not playing balls) that he simply ignores me... *sigh* so off I go... But when I just went out of the door, Vio suddenly said "Vio want keys..". Then I was like... errrr... why he suddenly want keys? I told him that there are keys inside the house and pointed to the keys. He seemed confused and said to me again: "Vio want keys mommy"...  

Ohhh! It was only then that I realize that what he's trying to say is "Vio want to kiss mommy".. Hohohoho... So happy! So I lower my head, and *muahh* the sweetest kiss ever landed on my cheek. Thank you for making mommy's day, Vio! :)

I can't seem to remember when was the last time I posted Vio's statistics?? Hmm.. anyway.. before my memory fails me... Here's Vio's current data:

Height = around 92 cm (but so far MRT ppl haven't asked him to start paying! Hahahaa)

Weight = 13 kg (hmm... i thought it should be 13.5kg or 14 kg... but anyway, the weighing machine in the paediatrician showed it as 13kg..)

Lil' Robot

Vio got so excited to see Daddy converting his ABC mats into tunnels! He goes in and out of the tunnel for maaaaany many times... And after tunnel-time, an even better idea sprout up: building up Robot Vio!

[caption id="attachment_2026" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption="Here comes the robot!"]Here comes the robot![/caption]

He was so happy he admired himself in the mirror and wave "helloooo"...

Uh-oh.. the robot parts start to came off...

And of course, another innovative idea using ABC mat: we can use it for exercise!

Lately Vio has finally shown some improvements on differentiating colors! The first colors that he recognized were... Brown and Orange.. haha.. I don't know why these 2 colors first... Coz it seems like I always try to tell him about red, blue, green, and yellow..

Well, anyway.. now he can tell us which one is black, white, blue, red, yellow, green, purple, and pink too! Yayy... Way to go, Vio!! :D

CNY Day 2

For Day 2 of CNY, we planned to bring Vio to River Hongbao. He never went there before... And neither did I actually :p  Just that there's ooonnneeeee problem...... Vio refused to take afternoon nap! *Sigh* yeah... that's still Vio's latest bad habit... It's like there's soooo many things to do and play that he just refused to take a nap, though everybody are ignoring him. Tsk!

So we decided to just go ahead and let Vio sleep in the cab... And even while in the cab, Vio still say "Don't want sleep!" though not long after, he fall asleep while sitting straight hahaa.. He was so tired, just that he didn't want to admit it.

So reaching River Hongbao... Vio pas sleeping peacefully while we walk and push him in the stroller.. There was quite a crowd there.. and with Vio sleeping, I didn't feel like taking any photos... So in the end, we didn't have any photo of River Hongbao.. wahaha..

Still with Vio sleeping, we decided to go to the next stop: a Vegetarian Restaurant in Tj Pagar area called Whole Earth Vegetarian Restaurant. This restaurant serve peranakan food and have good raves in the internet, so we decided to try it out. But apparently, since it was CNY, everybody must order their CNY set menu, and yeah, of course it's priced SO high! The tastes was quite ok... But I think we'd still prefer to go to Miao Yi... For half the price, we get more food and the food tastes nicer.. wahaha...

After the food, we wanted to go home... But oh wait! Vio had just woke up when we're going to eat... So from his point of view, we're just go out from the home.. No wonder he kept saying "Don't want go home! Don't want go home!". So.. though everybody (except Vio) was already knocked out from the walking session before, we decided to walk from there to Chinatown area to let Vio see lantern. He always get so excited to see lanterns.

And yes of course he was happy to see maaaaaaaaaaany lanterns he kept pointing and saying "Lanterns!" along the way.. LOL... It was a tiring day (coz of all the walking) but since at the end of the day Vio looked satisfied, it was all worth it :)

Ps: On the taxi home, Vio cheerfully said to the lanterns: "Bye bye lanterns.."

Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! :)

We had a good long weekend (and I kinda miss it now)... On the first day of CNY, while (almost) everybody were busy visiting relatives, we visited Sentosa for the flower festival! And since the Sentosa boardwalk was just opened, we decided to try it out too. And I think lots of people are thinking the same way.... There were quite a lot of people going by Sentosa boardwalk, and apparently, the boardwalk was longer than I thought it'll be.. haha.. Luckily it's sheltered...

[caption id="attachment_2010" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="We're in Sentosa now!"]We're in Sentosa now![/caption]

The weather was very hot... Maybe also because we reached there only about 10:30am, when the sun is already high in the sky and happily shining on us..

[caption id="attachment_2011" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption="It's so hot, Daddy..."]It's so hot, Daddy...[/caption]

I guess Vio must be feeling so hot and tired coz of the weather... He didn't wanna walk by his own! He only wanted people to carry him! Tsk.. Poor daddy have to carry him all the way....

Just when we're about to reach the flower festival place, it started to drizzle... ARGH!! What a right time!! Luckily we still proceeded to the flower festival place... coz it's apparently covered! Ha! The person who designs it is smart enough to have it covered. So we didn't get any rain, and didn't feel hot inside, but can still get the wind..

And since Vio is a "mouse", of course we must take photo with the mouse.. Heehheee :p

Overall it was quite good... Though the flower festival is not as nice as few years back, but it's still nice enough :D  It's quite cute that they have all the zodiacs in the form of flowers.. :D

Very WET Weekend

It was raining almost non-stop the whole weekend! First time I'm experiencing an almost non-stop rain in Singapore for 2 days and 2 nights.. Tsk! And because of the weather, Vio was having runny nose and cough... Sigh... I hope he's getting better soon!

Luckily, on Saturday morning (before the rain starts), we brought Vio out to IKEA! Yeah it's one of his favorite place, coz we'd let him touch almost everything, opening and closing of the drawers, boxes, almost anything that he can see there. And this visit, he particularly likes this wooden push cart (similar to the plastic one he has at home), and he brings it along to all the room we visited.. He even insisted to open a brand new one (even though he was already playing with the opened sample).

And he also loves to climb on almost every chair he sees. There's a big rocking chair that he likes. He'll rock back and forth (and enjoying every moment of it). Now we also see that there's a mini version of Poang armchair that we have at home! Wow.. it's so cute.. and just nice size for Vio.. if only my home is big big biggggg.. then we can get him that chair... He'll look so cute sitting side by side with daddy on the same chair with different size.. LOL...

Here's a photo of Vio, posing on one of the chair (just a random chair that he wants to try... Not any of the above mentioned chair)..

I planned to buy some boxes for organizing DVDs at home (it's just so damn messy!) and also a shadow box to decorate... But when we're about to go to level 1 to collect the stuff and pay, suddenly Vio was very sleepy and almost fall asleep while Daddy was carrying him! So in the end we went home early (without buying those things)... Seems like Vio can't wait to sleep.. He must be very tired from all excitement of running around freely in IKEA, and also added with his body wasn't so fit coz of the runny nose...
