I think it has been like.... 2 weeks since I last blogged here. Well, now I'm still currently presently occupied with my new task so I dun think I'll blog here for long. In fact this post isn't a blog post but I was feeling kinda guilty for MIA for so long, so I think it's best for me to step out and explain myself a bit here. I was involved in a case right now. There are many things I need to settle and tied up with. If I win, I can get like a few thousands in my bank account pretty fast. You know, things can get messy if you doesn't handle it well for the first time, it will drag on and on and on.....

So basically I got no spare time for you peeps... So sorrie, bear with me for this delay. I'll get back to blogging soon.

*papa is just lazy...* momo here, shhhhh

Piak!!! Go to bed after your milk.....

Today is 19th Apr, it's Momo's 22nd month old. It really seems so fast and now little momo is already 22nd month old. Soon she will be celebrating her 2nd birthday. Soon little momo won't be so little anymore. Anyone wants to have some limelights with her? How about planning a birthday party for her at MacDonald's? I'm sure she will be very happy to have many people celebrating with her?


Okay, let's not waste time and start blogging!!!


The following pics are all taken by dear's LG KU900 Viewty. Not all but majority of it. A 5M pixels camera phone is worth buying. You can see the difference from my 2M pixels phone.


Little momo was wondering why does she has so much clothes to stack up...


See, momo loves to read books. Often you can find her in my room reading books by herself.


My mum, her personal tutor... Momo always wants my mum to story tell for her what the pics mean...

Can you see how pretty momo features are? Her eyes are so big and double eyelids...


Huh? Me pretty ah? Of cos' you're... you're my little princess.



My mum said since it was my nite shift so we can utilise the morning free time and take momo out to IMM for a walk. It had been a long long time since I last take momo out for shopping. Well, to be exact this is my very first time taking momo out. All the previous occasions are either for CNY visiting or to the hotel cafes for lunch or to the supermarket for groceries with my mum. Never did I take her to the malls... Anyway, everything there will be the first time. so this day marks the day I first take momo out.


Taken inside the lift, my mum and little momo.



While waiting for the bus to arrive...


I was playing with my slippers at the bus stop when it snapped. It was bought not long ago at Fox Men. I like this slippers very much. Damn it!! It can't be mended back cos' it's the string inside that was snapped. Although it was bigger size than my foot but I love this slippers. I wore it when I went to Malacca. In fact, I bought it together with dear. She has one pair and I got one pair but of different designs. Hers was still intact cos' she seldom wears it. Nah, dun tell me to stun her pair from her... I'm not going to wear a ladies' slippers.





Closed up... Can you see it?


So I have to limp back home to change another one. You can't expect me to walk normally with the centre part snapped. There is no grip between my big toe and my 2nd toe... I threw it away after I took its pics. Maybe someone will pick it up and recycled it, you never know... I still feel it's a waste for it to die off, just like that. Maybe I should have keep it and figure out a way how to fix it back. This slippers was bought at the clearance section at Fox Men. You think I can find another pair again? Stop pondering over spilled milk...

I did mention in my last post that momo was sticking onto my mum, and she doesn't want to me hold her hand, let alone to carry her. It's a miracle that momo can actually walk all the way from the bus stop until the doorsteps of IMM, considering how small her footsteps are. Let the walking momo walk...

See the little girl in her jumper suit?

We had lunch at the Banquet, I did mentioned in my previous post. I wanted to take pics of her sitting at the corner seats. She definitely look so cute with just her head above the table level, bit ever since my last experience at the Jurong Point Banquet where I was taking pics of momo, one of the staff approached me and tell me that no photography is allowed. To prevent similar incidents from repeating itself, I didn't take any pics this time.

After lunch we went to the play ground next to Banquet... There is a water playground section on the right side. And the management actually have a shower section on the extreme left side of the playground for kids who get wet.



Tsk tsk... I must conquer this flight of stairs, no matter how steep...










Papa, here I come.........eeee!!!!



Did I hurt my pat pat?


Papa, whose pair of shoes is that? Can I try it on?






Faster... faster... grandma, faster push me....



Momo not scared... momo very brave...


I hold tight... momo hold tight...


It stops liao... Where is papa?

To finalize, taking momo out for the day is a good experience for her. She gets to interact with the outside world. She was busy exploring things around her. Her fingers run through, her legs walk across, her eyes roll by.... And by the time it's time to go home, she was tired and was sleeping in my mum's arms. At least we will have some peace at home after that, even it's for just a couple of hours before she wakes up.

Yesterday, I was about to leave for work and I dropped by to check how is momo doing inside the room cos' it was so quiet. Normally with momo inside she will be busy running around and you can hear her giggling voices behind closed doors. So I reached for the door handle and opened the door slightly ajar. I saw a pair of legs... Haha, no wonder it's so quiet. That explains the reason why... I got this long-time-idea-but-no-chance-to-fulfill in my head.. I reached for my boxing gloves in my room, it got a little dusty after storing it for so long inside the cupboard... Cleaned it up a bit and then I don it for momo...

Classic shot, huh?



Oh no, momo was KO by her opponent!!!




I was passing by the pasar malam at Jurong Point the other day and I remembered that momo should start to learn her ABC and 123... So I got for her the children set. Apparently the saying goes it true, good things don't come cheap. It only costs $1.90. I thought it was good bargain... I mean at least my mum can teach her alphanumerics while I was at work. But I got it wrong calculated.

Firstly, momo is not interested about the numbers or letters, she is more interested for her curiosity. She starts to dig out the centre pieces out and put it in her mouth. My mum was so worried that she might swallow it and got choked. So now currently it was packed in a plastic and put high up.

You see the letter 8? Little momo will actually dig out the centre 2 pieces and put them in her mouth. So dangerous for her... Cheap things is like that, what do you expect? CE marking or ISO certified?




Wait till momo gets older then I'll let her learn her alphanumerics.

These below pics are actually taken last month where I bought the CJ7 toy for momo at Terminal 3 while waiting for dear to come back from Hong Kong with her family.

Taken by my 2M pixels camera phone... Can you see the difference compared with the pics above?

Momo in this not so glamorous posture. Actually she was doing her small big business...


Who did momo learn all those ugly Singaporean habits from? One hand carry her CJ7, one hand digging gold...

I was about to go to work the other day and little momo was actually sitting beside me. When she is still awake and she knows that I was about to leave home for work, she will come to me from behind and lean against me or my back. I will then put her sitting next to me and tell her that "papa needs to go to work and you must be a good girl at home, okay?"

After I tied my shoelaces, momo will actually close the metal grills for me... I kiss her good bye want wanted to leave, I saw her doing this..


She will get into her prone position...




Then she will lie down like that... Oh my, I don't know what does it mean by that? Is she peeping from below the door or she is trying to use her war tactical skills to listen from the ground is there anyone approaching?

This is what she will do when I was leaving home for work and when I come back from work, without fail each time I saw her at the doorstep...


See, I told you momo loves reading books.... Guess who did she inherit from?

My dad bought a bicycle for momo to cycle, but apparently momo's legs are still short to be able to cycle it. Whenever I'm free, I'll bring momo to downstairs and manually push her around the jogging track. She do enjoy riding the bicycle, even her legs are unable to reach for the pedals. I'll make sure she holds onto the handle while I push her around. There is 2 storage; one at the front one at the back. When momo gets older, it can be used for her to put her own beach sand castle spades or pail. Right now, it can be used to put her bag; it got her water bottle, biscuits, handkerchief, etc.

Pics taken using my Samsung E720c... 1m pixel phone.


Momo in her proud bicycle... A bicycle is every kids' dream possession. Just like a grown up adult getting their first car.


Although the pedals are unreachable for momo but her legs are long enough to touch the ground. So whenever I was pushing her, her tip of her shoes will actually gets friction with the ground.


See what I mean?



Momo was coming down from the slide at full throttle, crash landing... Nah, it's the wind that was blowing at her hair.




Momo taking a break from the playing and climbing the stairs...

Momo was grabbing her water bottle so tightly... Earlier on, I try to snatch her Ribena away from her cos' she was sucking it non-stop. Momo loves to drink Ribena and she likes it when it's chilled.



Little momo just can't play by herself. She keeps one pestering my dad to let her try on the exercise equipmments. Never mind if she is too small for that but she just want to have feel of it when she sees others using it.

Yesterday took momo out for window shopping... My mum and I took little noti momo out to IMM.

We took a bus there cos'... no car to drive. Well, I can't possibly ask dear to drive us there or borrow her car, just like that. She needs to work, you know. Furthermore let little momo exposed herself more to the public will do her more good than harm. So my mum and I took the SBS bus to IMM. My mum got little momo dressed up and we are ready to go. Momo looks more like a boy in her outfit. hehe...

In the bus, she sticks to my mum, she doesn't want me to carry her.

After we alighted from the bus, my mum let momo down and wants her to walk. I mean it's good for little momo to walk more frequently, rather than we always carry her. So little momo walks, with my mum holding her hand. I tried to hold her the other hand but she refused to let me hold her hand. She just brushed my hand away when I wanted to hold it, but her the other hand is holding onto my mum's. Agrr....

Little momo was got pretty good stamina. She actually walk all the way from the bus stop till IMM. We had our lunch first at Banquet cos' little momo didn't really had her meal at home. She just nibble a bit of what we ate earlier. Doesn't count as her proper meal, so better let her had something first before we go window shopping. She is just like a little princess sitting at the food court. My mum choose a table whereby on the right is a wall and my mum sits on her left, so little momo got nowhere to go and she can't fall off the seat. Momo's lunch was 2 dumplings and kway teow which my mum is having. She just sit down there and keep on peeping at others over the seats. When my mum went away to get her dessert, little momo start to cry. Even I tried to carry her, she just won't stop crying. She really stick to my mum so much. When my mum comes back, she start to laugh and wants my mum to carry her. Okay then, I went to the gents to wash my hands...

When I come back, momo was shouting so loud "Papa!" and points her finger at me the moment she saw me. She laughs when she sees me, she was so happy to see me again but she just doesn't want me to carry her... So ironic, little momo...

After lunch we went to the playground on the 3rd level, just next to Banquet. There got a few kids playing too. In fact I took many pics of little momo but just that I dun have the time to post them here. Maybe next time I'll post them here. 5M pixels camera phone is just much clearer than my 2M pixels camera phone... Momo play with the merry-go-round, she play with the slide. There is a mini water theme park, a really small one there but at the afternoon time, no one is playing there and the water that gushed out is like a baby peeing.... You know, it's so small.

We only stay there for a while, like 10 mins or so? Then we went down stairs, to the Best Denki (or is it called dunno what). Anyway, it's really need to jaga little momo cos' she got itchy fingers. She love to poke the hi-fi speaker with her fingers. You know at home she will stuff tissue papers or whatever small objects into the hi-fi, the part where the amplifiers are. Next time anything lost or can't find around the whole house, the last resort is to search inside the amplifiers' location. You may found something long lost or unexpected. There I met one of my ex-colleague, Stephanie. She was still at the old company and she is shopping for a fridge. I was asking her does she know what is this little imp my mum was carrying..

"Your daughter loh..." she replied.

Can't bring little momo to the shops without supervising her closely. She likes to walk on her own and her fingers will touch anywhere and everywhere.

So much for the "Shopping with Momo" adventure. It was good for her cos' by the time we are in the cab going home, momo was already sleeping. The whole day of walking and looking around...

Someone commented that I should go and watch Run Papa Run...

Hmm...

Well, so that is how the poster looks like...



No need to say, the little girl must be little noti momo...

On second looks, she does resemble like momo...

Momo with longer hair...

But do I look like Louis Koo?

I can't imagine what will happen if this happens to me. Little momo giggling when she is pinning me.
So did anyone catch this movie already?


Lately I didn't take any pics of momo cos' my mobile phone is spoilt. Can't take pics, can't record video clips, can't let momo see her own video clips. In short the LCD backlight is spoilt and the sliding up and down will make it hang cos' something has short-circuit inside. I got a hard time trying to SMS and make phone calls. The best thing is there isn't any back-light so I need to use the reflection from any light source, bright light source.

Dear was kind enough to loan me her prized phone, LG KU990 Viewty. For a time period only. It was really a cool phone to take pics

Someone ask me how is momo now...
.
I replied that momo is still the same old momo, still so noti, still so mischievous. She always got something up her sleeves. If one fine day I tell you that momo is now a good little girl, she can sit by herself alone, she eats her own rice quietly, she doesn't overturn plates and pans... then she isn't my momo anymore...
.
2 days ago, I got home pretty early and I spotted her watching TV in my room with my mum. When she saw me, she keeps on pestering me to show her her video clips in my mobile phone. Right now, my Nokia 6280 is down. There is no back light cos' of all the sliding up and down for these past 2 yrs. Maybe it's time to get another new phone. Maybe Nokia N82... 5 Mega pixels camera phone. Dun play play, okie. Till then I can snap little momo's pics more clearer than in the past. Can you imagine 5 Mega pixels?!?! You can even see how many hair momo got on her head.
.
Back to my post, little momo was reading her books in my room and my mum was watching TV. Momo likes to read books, she will flip to this page and then she will "arggh..." She wants you to explain to her what this pic means or what does the word means... So I left her alone with her own reading, I went to have my dinner. Little momo, maybe she can smell the food, come to me and try to climb onto my chair. I tried to push her away cos' I dun want her to climb up to me. Do you think little momo is give up? No, man. She climb even harder to me... And I got a nasty idea in my head... hehe... I offer her a piece of otak. Little momo take a few bites, then she paused there. I can see her face changed. Her eyebrows frowned. I look at her, she look at me... Then I give her my palm to spit out that piece of otak. She then climb down and run into my room. At last I can have my dinner in peace, I thought...
.

But little momo come back again...
.

Again she climb onto my chair and tried to reach to my food. So again I give her a piece of otak, this time a bigger piece. Momo saw, she seems to know what it is and she doesn't really want to open her mouth, she did open her mouth but only slightly ajar. What I did was I shoved the whole piece into her mouth, she chewed a bit and the same thing happens... Her face changed, her eyebrows frowned, she look at me, I look at her. But this time I didn't give her my palm. She just spit it out on the table and run away, into my room.
.

Do you think little momo learn her lesson not to be so glutton?
.

Yesterday I went home after my night shift... Little momo was walking around in the living room. She knows that I was back so she run to me, standing at the door step, pointing at me and shout "papa.. papa..." I carried her after I washed my hands. Most of the time she will let me carry her. I mean times when I come back home after work or she comes to me with her hands stretching out to me. Other times, you can just forget about it. So I let her down at the dining table cos' I need to change in my room. Little momo come knocking on my door just moments after I close my door. So I let her in. Well, little momo has watch me get changed in front of her many times before. Sometimes she will stared at my.... (you know what). It's okay cos' I did the same to her too. Niak niak... She climbed onto my bed and then from there she will climb onto my table. Then she will put her leg out of the window and hang herself using the window grills. Pretty dangerous, huh? So my dad will put a camel on my table to prevent her from doing so. Why a camel? Cos' little momo is scared of this camel my dad bought for her to play. But dunno why this day she still dare to climb onto my table. So I took the camel and placed it right in front of her. You know, little momo actually will fall backwards, shocked and sit on my bed. I was trying to scare her and I told her "You see, you noti little momo. Camel like to bite noti momo, bite your small butt then you know" in Cantonese. You guess what her reaction is? She understand what I was saying and she actually cry. She cried... I was like, huh? She knows Cantonese meh? My mum was asking me why is she crying in my room, so I told her the camel is the culprit. I carried her, pacifying her, patting her... She keep on crying and crying... My mum was saying maybe she is sleepy that's why she cry. A while later she stopped. I look at her, she was in sleeping mode. The best thing is, she was sleeping in upright position in my arms.
.
Well, that's my little momo....
