Last Sunday I went the movies with dear... Watched Kungfu Panda. I thought it will be nice to catch it on screen cos' many ppl said it's nice. Yeah, it maybe cartoon but adults enjoyed watching it too. At least I do... At least dear do... She was meeting someone else for dinner appointment at Jurong East so we choose to watch it at Jurong Entertainment Centre. Talking about it, it had been like more than 15 years since I watch a movies there.



The panda is really cute and chubby... I thought want to get a soft toy for momo to play with but I dun think she will know what is it. I mean she won't know that this is the famous Kungfu Panda screening in the movies. Furthermore she already has a lot of soft toys to play with. Lately she got one more to her collection, the Hello Kitty my dad got for her. Now she will hug it every nite, when she is watching TV or just out of moments of spur. Just last nite when I was attending online class for my part time job, momo was knocking on the door. She wants to hug her Hello Kitty. I was in the other room where momo normally sleeps. Momo was watching TV with my mum in my room so I have to occupy her mattress for the time being. She was outside the room hitting at the door and crying. I didn't want to entertain her cos' I got important things to do. Then my mum opened the door and momo came in, to get her Hello Kitty. I thought she misses me and want me to carry her... I even told her to wait till 9pm, after I'm done with my class and I'll play with her. Well, now I think momo is more independent and doesn't need me to play with her. She will be fine with herself. Well, not always the case...



Lately I was playing hide and seek with momo. She will run after me, trying to catch me. I will run and momo will follow behind. I ran from my room to the kitchen and momo will also run. I run from the kitchen to the master bedroom and momo will also follow behind. I even hide under the table and guess what, momo can even able to find me. She will stop and then look below the table, then she will also go under the table with me. Aiyo....



Now momo can speak more and more words. Clearer each time... I think in no time she will know how to argue back. Now she knows how to tell her playground friends and aunties that her name is momo...



Shake her hand in the air and pat herself... "Momo..." whenever they call her Siqi...



Whenever I was sleeping, momo will come and lie beside me. I say out to her "papa sleeping loh..." and she will come. I do like her lying beside me but not when she was kicking my face. There is one time her legs were kicking in the air and the next moment her heels were landing in my face. I tell her her legs are so powerful. And she loves to climb the window and chairs. So scared that she will drop and fall. But this little lass dunno how to spell "scared" No matter how many times you scold her she will still do the same thing the next time.



I love to catch her and hug her tight... Momo will scream and shout... Then my mum will yell at me why am I torturing momo. Her body smells so nice and her face is so kissable and smooth. Hehe... Guess what? Momo no longer had her first kiss. Niak Niak....



The next best thing I like to do is to catch momo when she is lying beside me and pin her. Then she yell and scream, to struggle to break free. She likes it when I lift her up and play free fall, but with my hands holding her, of cos'. Can't possibly really let her fall freely. Anyone knows what it means by free fall? Simply means I will hold momo underneath her arms and lift her high up above me, then drop her vertical downwards then lift her upwards again and drop her vertical downwards. Like what you see in the outdoor theme parks. Every time I did that, she will laugh and laugh.



Really hope that momo will grow up soon, till then I can bring her out. Right now, I still doesn't dare to take her out alone. You know, this little lass isn't simple to handle. But now the most important thing for me is to do deal with something hindering...

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Sorrie for the late update.... It should be up last nite but Blogger got problems in uploading the pics, so gotta delay till today then you peeps and see how 2 yr old little momo celebrate her birthday.


I specially take OFF on the 19th June to spend time with momo. I keep on telling her that she is going to be 2 yrs old so she cannot be noti anymore. She apparently doesn't understand cos' she is still as noti as ever. So let's be it....

Ok, so now let's take a look what happened on the 19th June...

Early in the morning, my mum went to buy a birthday cake for momo. I told her let me buy the birthday cake but she said she will get it instead. So I stayed at home to play reformat my laptop. Damn it, it got stricken by viruses. Many many ad-wares, trojan horses, malwares, viruses... To the extend that it doesn't load the Windows XP, it just reboot by itself when it was loading the Windows. So the only resolve method is either to throw the laptop away and get a new one or I had to reformat it again. In fact, I have did it a couple of times. Lousy laptop... but who cares. It's not mine anyway. I got it free. Nevertheless, I chose the latter one and now I'm able to blog again. But I think I would want to get a new one soon. Waiting for my bonus in July. I'm not so greedy, I wouldn't want the latest one. Just a Pentium VI will do, doesn't need to be the Sony VAIO. Maybe just a Acer will do, or a Panasonic oso can. It doesn't need to be a one that costs $4000, just a one that costs less than $1600 will do. I mean if you're not the rich, just settle for something within your means. So now I stick to the lousy laptop that is in my room, for the time being.

My mum dressed momo up with the new dress she got for her. The pants that comes with it looks big and ugly so my mum match it with a white bottom.

I got a hard time trying to take her pics cos' she keep running towards me. I had to carry her and placed her farther and she just keep on running into my legs. This pic was like after XX times of failure before I could capture it.

See momo spotted me trying to snap her pic...



Self portrait of me and momo. See that cute little smile on her face?



Ohh... momo is getting impatient already. Her eyebrow frowned, and her lips become tu tu...


Okay, papa take one more shot and you let me down okay?


While waiting for the rest to come for her mini picnic, momo go and play her slide. I doesn't want her to dirty her clothes so I had to supervise her a bit. Today the slide looks quite clean so it's okay for her to play a while there.


Standing tall on top of the slide, looking down.


Momo ready to slide down, but someone is blocking her way. You know, in fact momo is kicking his hand away.

Finally, almost everyone is here so the picnic begins. The cloth is spread across the grass and I just laid momo on top of it. It was surprisingly that momo can actually lie on top of it and keep still. I expect her to defy and get up immediately. Normally that's what she did at home...


C'mom, let's eat momo... the legs first or the hand?

Talking about cannibals, I got a joke to share...

There is this young cannibal who went to a cruise. He was hungry so he walked and followed everyone else to have their dinner. He was ushered to a table and the waiter showed him the menu. He took a hard look at it and doesn't seems to understand what is written there. The waiter asked if he need any assistance.

"Why you give me the menu? I doesn't want it, just pass me the passengers' list..."

Okay back to my blog....

Gee... what are they doing? Am I supposed to continue lying here and should I help them?

You know, as I mentioned momo is so likable by everyone at the playground. She got many sisters and brothers, aunties and uncles. Everyone knows her and everyone likes her. So for her birthday, it's only right to invite her play-mates to celebrate with her. Mostly are the children and their house maids who babysit them. Today momo is the host of the party, and she doesn't seem to realise that.

Hmm... what to eat leh? Should I wait for the rest or shall I eat first?


See how petite is momo when sitting together with them... They all love momo as though she is their own siblings.


"I'm hungry already... Just now at home I only drink a bit of milk leh..."



See? I told you they all love momo and treat her as their little sister...

My mum specially cooked curry chicken and agar agar for them to eat. Bread from Delifrance tasted best when dipped in curry. But momo can't eat my mum's curry chicken yet cos' she still can't take the hotness yet. Maybe when during her 3rd birthday, she can't taste it.
Momo just loves to drink from the packet.


You're not going to believe it, but I'm going to tell you anyway. Momo is eating the sotong ball all by herself. She pokes it with the toothpick and helps herself with it. She saw what others did and she follows suit.


Momo is sitting my my maid's lap and she quietly eats her own sotong ball. That was the rare chance I can see momo will actually sit quietly and eat. Normally at home momo will run about during her diner time. She can take 45 mins, at least to finish her dinner. Sometimes even more than an hour.

All the patrons finishes the food and nothing is left behind. I wanted to eat... but nothing is left. Well, it doesn't matter cos' I can still eat it at home. The most important thing is everyone is happy and they loves my mum's cooking.
So what's else to do next?
Take pics with momo again.... Ever since I start my new shift I hardly got time for little momo. But to my surprise she will able to recognise me. You know, most of the time during her birthday picnic, I was carrying her. She only sit on the ground for a short period of time. She will cry "papa..." and points her finger at me. All the other aunties wanted to pacify her and offered to carry her but little doesn't want them to carry her. She wants me to carry her. And she in fact grows heavier and my arms are aching when she was in my arms. My mum said momo now weighs about 10 kg. I got no time to weigh her so....

This pic was like.... momo is imitating a piggie... She is angry and you can see her two tiny nostrils.


Okie this pic seems normal, only that momo doesn't smile to the camera...


Whoo..... momo saw something disgusting or what? Why that expression?

While the rest is still enjoying my mum's cuisine, I took momo for a ride. You can see her hair is flying cos' she is rocking the horse very hard. I should have record it down as a video clip, only then you can be able to see it.

Hipee ya! I want to go Rome, go China, go Japan....



Horse, horse... are you tired? Why you so quiet?
You know, while taking the few snaps of momo on the horse I was so worried that she might fall off from rocking too hard. You know, momo is a daredevil. As soon as I put my digital camera in my pocket, I was holding to momo's arm.
Tired of carrying momo in my arms so I put her on the bench. She doesn't cry cos' I was in front of her. She sees me so she doesn't cry out. If not, you think she will sit there obediently?


" You! I warn you, dun snatch my snack hor...." Momo means business.


Oh yeah, yeah... I know I'm 2 yr old mah... have to be a good girl mah... Papa so naggie one... talk and talk non-stop.


Momo birthday mah, so of cos' she will receive birthday presents. I mean those presents were from the house maids who celebrate her birthday. I dun expect them to give her presents cos' they aren't earning much either. But still I welcome their presents. Just a token from their hearts...
So let's see what presents momo receives?


A pink dress... It was too long for momo to wear it currently, the skirt will be like sweeping the floor. Maybe next year for her birthday momo can wear it.


This is actually a pig soft toy. Initially I thought it was a horse, but it got curly tail so this is a pig. The eyes are actually there but just that the fur is covering them. In fact the eyes are really small.



A pair of shoes.... So this is going to add on to momo's collection of shoes. Momo can wear it...



Good... with this drawing board momo doesn't need to display her graffiti skills on her books, on our newspapers, on the coffee table.


Last but not least... A Doremon soft toy... Who buys this for momo? Her papa, of cos'... Momo she got a pair of Doremon slippers too. Whenever the TV was showing Doremon cartoon, momo will run and get her Doremon slippers to show to us. Now she is hugging it when she walks around the house.

After momo comes home, she went for a shower and then take her dinner. You dun expect momo to have her fill at the earlier picnic, do you? The food there are mainly for her play-mates and the aunties who love her. Momo is more like playing with the food. Back home, my mum will feed her with her actual dinner. It was really stamina testing for my mum to feed her cos' little momo will keep running around the room. She eats in my room, you see? We had to close the door to refrain her from going outside to the living hall or the kitchen. But when she wants to go out and she can't get out, she will start to bang at my room door and refused to eat. Even when my mum feeds her, she will just keep the rice in her mouth and doesn't want to chew and swallow. And you have to praise her if not she will not eat her food. Once my mum was scolding her saying why the cat in the house can eat his food and why she doesn't... Guess what? Momo gets offended and the next moment, she just walk away with her mouth frowned.
After dinner, momo was watching TV with my mum and I was sleeping on her mattress in the other room. Then my mum wakes me up and tell me it's time to cut the cake. So I lay out the foldable table in my room. This was the table dear gave to me for me to go online sitting on the floor.

I think momo is born to climb and conquer... She like to get on top of this table whenever she sees it.


Tom and Jerry cake.... No Jerry, only Tom in the picture...


With 2 candles and the "Happy Birthday" sign. We didn't light up the candles cos' momo is unable to blow the candles off. Just for the photo taking sake that's why we put the candles on. Can you see at the front there cream was smeared? Anyone wants to make a clever guess who did it?


Momo pretending to be blowing the candles off. Well, in fact it was momo trying to reach out for the cake but my mum stops her.
I doesn't know why all these pics looks disillusioned. I have already selected the anti-shake function for the digital camera. I guess even when selected, the night scene will still be like that.


Grandma, my hand is dirty... Can wipe for me?


Grandma, now my the other hand is dirty oso...


Okay, grandma is wiping for you, so you dun anyhow touch the cake ok...
You know, momo is really fast. Her hands can really stretched out and before you know it, she already make a hole at the cake. Or she pull out the candle already...



Momo is still unable to cut the cake so my mum helps her with it. Last year she was too young to understand anything, this year she knows it but her hands are not able to carry out the cutting cake task. Maybe next year she will be able to do it on her own.


See? Once my mum turns her head away and momo quickly poke a hole at the cake and my mum need to clean her hand again....

It was a wonderful experience to witness momo celebrating her birthday. Day by day she grows up and day by day she is able to utter words. Nothing beats the feeling than to be able to see momo grows up. Notice in this post, I didn't call momo as little momo. Cos' I think 2 yr old momo is no longer little anymore.

Ok.... Now I got some free time before I need to attend my online class for my part time job... So I just take chance of the time, so damn hard to squeeze out, to blog a bit here. I think most ppl are more interested to know about little momo than about my news. Yeah, momo is cute.. momo is cute.... momo is cute.... I'm not cute. She got more fans than me.


Just a few nites ago, I was at home after work. Nowadays I will call out "momo.." when I open the door while taking out my combat boots. And momo will dunno come from where, she will popped up running to the door and when she saw me, she will laugh and giggle. Then she will squeeze her way out to the outside and play with the plants outside. Not ours, but belongs to the next door one. No matter how I call her to get into the house, she just wouldn't. Sometimes I just close the gate grill and then the main door. I will peeped through the door hole to see what is her reactions are. Little momo will go "ahh..." then she will try to pull open the metal grill. When it fails to open, then she will let out a little cry and hit on the door... I will wait for a while before opening the door for her to come in. Then carry her to the basin to wash her feet.


Last nite I came home and called out to momo again. She, as usual, come running to me. And she still want to squeeze her way out to the common corridor. So I did the same thing again. I closed the metal grill and the main door. You know what this little momo did? She even help me to close the metal grill. I peeped through the door hole to see what she is doing outside. OMG!!! She no more crying. In fact, she even went to the next door and knock on their door. It seems like she knows that sooner or later I will open the door for her to come in she doesn't bother much. She enjoyed her stay outside so much that after i open the door she still doesn't want to come in. I need to go out grab her and carry her in.


So I think the same trick cannot be used on little momo too often....


Couple of nites ago, momo was hungry and she knows how to come to me and point towards the direction where we put her milk bottle. I thought she wants to play with something... I carry her up and see what she wants. She point here point there, I doesn't know what she wants exactly. I hand over to her basically everything that is on top of the closet. She wants the milk bottle, I thought wants to play with it. But no... She then points to the milk powder container, I thought she wants to play with the mouse figure stopper. But no.... You know, I was scratching my head....


"Correct mah, she wants the milk bottle, I give to her but she don't want... She wants the milk container stopper, I give to her but she don't want..."


So in the end, I just make her a bottle of milk, as the last resort. You know, little momo saw it.... Guess what she did? She immediately jumped, I mean jump and then lie down on her mattress. She knows that milk is on the way....

The other nite, I was carrying her in my room and she was making noise that she wants to come down, so I let her down... She runs to the living room to find things to play. She was touching here and there, and she wants to play with her tricycle. You know, it was about mid-night time?!?! So of cos' I told her no. Little momo was crying and tears flows down her cheeks. But still I told her no. Cannot everytime let her has her way. She will grow up a spoilt little girl. It's so late at nite already... So my mum was telling her off while I was carrying her. Little momo listens to my mum more than me... Of cos' lah, I was always not at home, working... So little momo stops crying and we tucked her to bed. She likes to roll here and there hugging her bolster. If the lights is on, she will not sleep. She can play by herself the whole nite. She will hide behind the bed, climb onto the bed and play with the hi-fi set, or disturb anyone sleeping beside her.

Once I was sleeping on her mattress cos' she was watching TV in my room. Momo comes and she saw me. I guess so cos' I was sleeping at the time. She came to me and she actually sit on my tummy... I was awaken by her, and I have to carry her back to my room. Moments later she came again, and she was touching my face and lie on top of me... "Papa is very tired, can you go watch TV with grandma" and I pushed her out of the room. Then she came again, this time she was shoving my hp to my face cos' there is a SMS beeping...

This is my momo, peeps. Sigh....

These are not the worst yet. The best is she likes to play with my boxer shorts. She will open up my drawer and then hand pick one of my boxer shorts and.... wear it on her head... OMG!!! I thought only Spiderman will do that, now momo does it too.

Below is a video clip, 尖沙咀Susie by Samuel Hui. I changed the name Susie to Momo... For fun only...

Momo will be turning 2 yr old this coming 19th June... I will be buying her a big cake, a birthday present, and my mum will cook some delicious food for her/us to eat. I know there are many people who loves momo as much as I do, or even more than I do, maybe less than I do. Nevertheless, anyone who wants to send her your wishes here?

This song really retro, man... If you're around my age, say when you're in primary school in 1982... Then you will know this song. Never mind so much if MJ is a black or black- turn-into-white, still the King of Pops is really something, huh?

There is a couple of jokes about MJ, just share with you peeps...

What is the common thing MJ and a Styrofoam?
The ans is: Both are plastic and dangerous for kids to play with.

Which singer keeps on looking for his pen when he is singing?
MJ, cos' he keeps on saying 笔 leh... 笔 leh....

Yank, cold joke...

Okay, let's move on before it gets too cold....

Lately been down on luck, not so smooth in doing my business. But that's okay cos' I know very well success doesn't comes easy. What comes easy goes easy too. At least I got more time to spend with little momo. Earlier on, momo was crying and I was carrying her in my arms. I really dun know what she wants. Her hands keep on pointing here and there. I was asking her "You want this?" "You want that?" "What you want then?" She points to the syringe, so I thought she was feeling thirsty. I feed her with like... 10 times water using the syringe. She was laughing and she seems to enjoy drinking water like that. I mean as long as little momo doesn't cry and she enjoys it, what's there to stop? And so I let her do what's she enjoy. A while later, she doesn't want to use the syringe anymore. She continue to point her finger at the table... I really doesn't know what she wants exactly. She keeps on ahh...ahh... then shake her head, shake her hand... then ahh... ahh... again. It was so hard to know what she is trying to tell you...

Then at last I know what she wants... She is feeling hungry and she wants milk...

She knows milk is on the way and she lie down on the mattress herself and look at me. Momo is getting smarter, huh?

I give her another 3 months before she can speak a complete simple sentence. Now she can utter words, not so clear but still audible. "Papa cupppp!" "Papa bag!"

Haha...

Sometimes I feel like want to laugh when I witness momo how she play by herself. She will carry this toy of hers from one place to another, then she will throw it in front of you onto the floor. If not, she will carry her soft toy and then give it to you. Then she want it back from you again.

It's getting late and tomorrow I need to get up early for work...
