Chloe's art and craft

Last week Chloe went to science camp for five days. She learn about five senses and do some art and craft. These are her creations:

She look so serious. Actually she smile for a few snap but too bad the pictures is blur, so this is the best pictures after all.

Two bottle stick together and add some sand in it. Something like a rattle.
Turtle with some spice powder on it. Smell familiar but can't tell what is it.

Play dough.

Fish with some shapes on it.

According to her, she said is flowers. But I don't think it's look like it.

Fabian Passport Photo

This December we are planning to go on holiday. Chloe already had her passport, so we need to take Fabian to do his very first passport. At first, I thought the picture sure not nice, because children can’t like adult smile at the camera. They will look here and there and sometimes when they are not in mood, they cry! Sigh….

At the beginning they said need to take photo at the immigration. The queue is long, we wait for 1 hour plus and he start to feel sleepy and cranky. I was thinking “oh dear, how can he has a smiling face later”. When his turn, he took the picture and the lady said can’t use, because can see my hands. She asks me to take his photo at studio. OMG, I need to take my walk down the street to the photo shop. I was sweating and Fabian look so tired. What to do, I have to no choice. The girl asks me to go in the studio and let him wear a vest, because his clothes is blue color same as the background. Later cannot see his shoulder. The girl and I try to make him smile. Finally, the result is out. Look for yourself and tell me your comment.

I'm very satisfy, because is better than I expected.

I want to share with you all these stickers. My brother-in-law bought some stickers from US for my daughter. I really like the third picture stickers. I think is very special. I never saw this type of sticker over here. Chloe is so happy to received this gift. She really like stickers very much. Everytime she will ask me to buy for her. I even buy stickers book for her to paste. But I think most of the children also like stickers.

Homemade play dough

This is the first time I made play dough. It is very simple. All you need is :

1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of salt
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
Few drops of food coloring

Just mix all these ingredients together in a cooking pot and set over a medium heat while stirring constantly until the mixture becomes a ball. This should only take a few minutes.
Then remove from the stove and place the ball on the counter and add the food coloring then begin kneading the ball. (Be careful, the ball will be warm from the stove).
Knead for 1 to 2 minutes, then let it cool.
You'll want to wear gloves or your hands will turn the color of the coloring.

I keep in a zipper bag. It can keep up to few weeks.

These are our creation! The smaller caterpillar and and apple my daughter made. All the shapes my daughter cut it and I add some design. So "pai ser" my art is not that good.

Fabian Before and After

Before After

July and August are the most tiring month. My whole family falls sick except me. First my son Fabian, he admitted hospital because of acute gastroenteritis (diarrhea and vomit) Cause by bacteria in his gastric. He stays at hospital for 3 nights 4 days. Then my daughter fever and runny nose follow by my husband, flu. After a week my son admitted again. He got phlegm. When he breathes I can hear the whizzing sound. Very serious until he need admitted for 5 nights 6 days.

The story not yet ends, when he came back for few days, he vomit again. So, I need to take him to the doctor. The doctor said he maybe he is allergy to milk lactose. He needs to change his milk powder to soy powder. After taking the Isomil (soy powder) he is ok now. I know that the soy powder taking for a long period of time it will cause tooth decay. However, he will drink until 1 year-old. So is ok no need to worry, since he don’t have teeth.

I am extremely exhausted. Being a mother, the most tiring is look after the children when they fall sick! I sleep for two days when every thing settles down.

My Fabian weight went down, you can see how different in the pictures.

Snakes fighting at my car park

Today afternoon, my husband saw the King Cobra and Python are fighting at our condos car park. Then he snaps the photo for me to see. At that time I was taking a nap. When I wake up he told me and I quickly rush out to see, already too late because the firemen have come to catch the snakes. You can see the Python is wrapping around it the King cobra and it can’t even move. The snakes are just behind a car. Luckily is found and not hiding under the car or go inside the house, if not we can’t imagine what will happen. I wonder if the firemen didn’t come and catch the snakes, what will happen.
You think who win in this fighting? I know. The firemen! Wakakaka……

Childhood toys

Last week, my daughter asks me to buy her cars stickers, so I went to market to buy for her. However, I couldn’t find pretty stickers for her. Then I decided to buy her coloring book. At the mean time I found this paper dolls book.

Last time when I was a little girl, I used to buy this paper dolls at the grocery shop (chai tiam mah) at 10 cents per piece. It is very cheap compare to now Rm3.50, but of course the quality is different. Nowadays, it comes with a book. Just like coloring book. At first I thought is a coloring book, but when I flip its surprise me, because since a long time I didn’t see this paper dolls. I want to share my childhood toys with my daughter. I told her last time her mommy play with this. I am not so fortunate like her to have so many toys and this is one of them. During my childhood I always play seven stones (7 liap buah), cooking utensils ( masak-masak ), paper dolls and catch fish near the river. He he he…run around the “kampung” and play with sand. Use Milo tin cover to cook leaves and Hibiscus flower petals, it will have sticky fluid after you cook it. Now, I don’t think kids have chance to play with all this stuff. Only those who live in the village will have chance to play, but I think maybe they will not interested anymore. Because now got Nintendo, play station, Lego, Barbie and etc.

So, what did you play during your childhood?

I nearly kill myself and my two children!

Last night, I take my children and mother-in-law goes to shopping, when we came back already 10pm. So, as usual I will settle down my children and take my shower. I need to boil my baby bottle to sterilize. I had a bad habit I want to make it fast so that I can go to bed earlier, so when I am boiling my bottle, at the same time I went to take my shower. After that, I forgot about bottle! I went to bed. While I’m sleeping, I smell something and I wake up, all my room fills with smoke!

At that time, only I remembered about mine bottles. I quickly rush to the kitchen and turn off the fire. When I look inside the pot, this is how my bottles look. I melt all my bottles!

Then, I open all my house windows and door to release the smoke. I take a look at the clock it was 2am. I cooked the bottles for 3 hours. I called my husband because my husband friend’s grandfather passed away, so he went over to his place. I told my husband what happen and he said he is on the way home.

I am very careless and I don’t have a good memory. I tend to forget things easily. Sometimes when my husband at home, I boil the bottles he will ask me whether want to turn off the fire. At last, this is what happens. I nearly kill myself, my children and burn down the whole apartment, because of my careless mistakes. My heart beat very fast and my hands are cold when I think what had happened. I look at my children, they still sleeping so soundly. They didn’t even know what happen. If on fire, I’m the one who cause the problem.

When my husband came home, I asked him to scold me. I said I nearly kill my children and all the whole apartment people. He said “why I had to scold, things already happened. Just remember this mistake and don’t let it happen again.” This makes me guiltier. I think I will never forget this mistake and the lesson I had learned today forever!

Chloe and Fabian

Don’t you think they look alike? Can you differentiate which one is Chloe or Fabian? Even my mother-in-law and sister-in-law can‘t recognize. Maybe because when I am pregnant I look at my daughter too much! I open my daughter’s album and my daughter asks me “ Is that baby brother pictures?” I said this is you when you are young. Chloe is the one wearing blue color shirt and Fabian is the one wearing white color shirt.
