Lil I finally cut his first tooth..

It is the teething period.

It might not be the worst but I guess having 2 kids before really help to train me for sleepless nights like these. 

Week 1 and 2 of May: 
On a good night sleep, lil I could already sleep from 10pm to 530am in which he will wake for milk and will continue his sleep after the feed.

But these few weeks, Lil I was literally napping throughout the night as he will sleep close to 10pm and will wake at 2am perhaps. On these nights he would jus drink his milk and continue to snooze till 530am then which he will definitely wake up to play and have another night feed. He co sleeps with me and Dora so any little fiddling of the bolsters will usually wake me up. I'm now such a light sleeper. Then he will sleep at around 630am when my alarm is going to ring. I will then quickly take another 10-15min snooze as Isa is using the toilet.

Then during work, my helper text me to tell me Lil's I cut his his first tooth! Yay!! 

Week 3 of May: 
Just when we thought things might get a little better, lil I was literally waking every 
2 hours and this continue for another 2 nights! Imagine I was a zombie at work. But it was not easy as my partner was on leave so I had to be around.
On Wednesday, lil I was running a high fever! It was already 39.4 when I brought him to the clinic. Thank goodness he was  all fine by Friday afternoon. Only the flu and cough symptoms are still around.

Phew. What a week. 
How has yours been?


Can u spot the little tooth? Hehehe

Dinner was soon served beginning with..
Homemade yam ring with Kyoto Pork Ribs ($30)

With Yam Ring, which is crispy on the outside yet soft and creamy on the inside, it complements the sweet yet savoury Kyoto Pork Ribs perfectly.

they should just name it Yum Ring.. hurhur.


Ubin lala Beehoon ($18)

Reminisce of Gu Ma's childhood at Pulau Ubin. Where simple food bring joy to everyone as long as it is enjoyed as a family. Tasty rice vermicelli served with fresh lala. Sure to tantalize everybody's taste buds! Get a taste of Pulau Ubin without the pesty mosquito!

I can do bottoms up with you on the soup here.


Crispy BeanJal ($12/$18)

Brinjal? Who are you kidding? Our friends on our same table was still asking if its "meat" together with this dish of four seasons beans. And it turns out to be a often neglected vegetable - brinjal!

I remember quite clearly that my ah lao who dislike brinjal gave a double thumbs up for this dish!


Shrimp paste chicken mid joint ($15)


Yuan Yang Kai Lan ($12/$18/$24)

This is a personal favourite vegetable dish that I believe can turn your chilld into a vegetables lover. The deep fried leafy bits would just leaving everyone, not just children, asking for more!


Assam Fish Head ($28)

Cooked with GuMaJia's exclusive sweet and sour assam blend gravy, who can resist this dish?

XO Sauce Prawn Noodle ($28)

A classic Cantonese dish, Gu Ma chooses only the freshest prawns cooked in special homemade superior XO sauce with noodles. Impressive and indulgent indeed, this dish leaves you with a lingering flavour from the XO complimented by the sweetness of the prawn meat. Absolutely must try!

GuMa Traditional Beancurd Soup ($28)

From Gu Ma’s private kitchen, this traditional dish is what Gu Ma grows up with. Power packed with wholesome goodness, this nutritious soup is being boiled for 6 hours with salted fish head, Chinese Ham, Pork Ribs, Peanuts and fresh Bean Curd. Excellent soothing and comfort soup for all!


Salted Egg Yolk Crab - seasonal price

Actually when this dish arrived, I was literally so full to the max but just cannot give this crab a miss! I am not a fan of salted egg but this dish made me think twice.

And after all the main course, a variety of desserts were served.


Gu Ma Dessert ($4)


Black Glutinous Rice with Ice Cream ($3.8)

My love for black glutinous rice just made me have some quiet sips from the spoon and very soon the bowl was empty.


Mango Pudding (not on menu yet)

Isa helping himself to one whole serving of mango pudding.


And ends the day with our signature pose with Gu Ma!

The Animal Corner in Lim Chu Kang (Farmart)..

Early in the morning on a Sunday.. Mama Connie has some cheeky ideas in her mind..

Now where shall we go?

So she told 3 little kiddos,"ok! Let's go see animals!"
Isa and Dora,"Yeah!!"

Little to they know that this ulu ulu place is called "Farmart" and it is situated in Lim Chu Kang. It was the children's first time there though. (Ya dont ask me why) and there were all piped up with excitement!

You see.. lil I is a small adventurer.. Out of the 3 kids, he is always the one who always experience something different at the youngest age as compared to the two older ones.


So after a very LONNNNNNNNNNG car ride.. we reached!
Time check: 10:30am


The papa and his little girlfriend.


The mama and her littest boyfriend who could hardly keep his eyes open.


For a basket of feedings, it would cost you $5.
By default, the vendor will give you a bunch of spinach (for the goats), 2 packets of carrots/mini corns (for the rabbits), 2 packets of pellets (for the catfish, tortoise and toads) and a pack of sunflower seeds (for the birds).
Quite worth it right?
So KS Mama gave Isa a $10 bill for 2 sets.


At first, Isa was a little apprehensive. Note his distance from the cages.


Dora was not even feeding yet. She just pose with her carrots.


Even my helper also want to be part of the fun.


Dora was so scared of the parrots!
You can see from the way she kept herself etched on Papa's legs.


After a while, she still was not very convinced..



This was muchhhhhh later.


Isa, on the other hand, was getting more confident with feeding the animals.


In fact, he was all over the place and I just could not keep up with his pace. It was so difficult to catch shots of him as I had to carry the baby with the another arm.


Guess this was the most interesting shot I took.
Very confident and precise as you have to hold on to your sunflower seed firmly and close enough to the parrot so that it takes the seed off your hand.


Only the pellets for the cat fish were left.
Kiddos rounding up the session.
And it was getting hot.


"Hello did.. you want some corns?"
Naughty Mama asked.


And for obvious reason, lil I thought it could be food.


What's the more interesting thing in Farmart was that it has so many kiddy rides!
The carousel just caught my attention and it was only for $2! 


And my two older ones really enjoy the ride!
Till the next time.. we will be back!

Time check: 12pm


FARMART CENTRE IS LOCATED AT

67 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore 699008

Lil I is 6months old!

Hmm time and tide really wait for no man and it also makes me realize that I'm really contended about my accomplishments in life. I may not live in the biggest apartment, neither do I drive a big car nor draw a high salary. In fact if you know, I had a huge pay cut this year for my shorter working hours and we are evening considering of going "car-less" next year once our car's COE is up. But I have a biggest satisfaction of all: which is to have 3 kids!

And today as we looked back, it all seemed like a little dream that come true. Having kids in the family and me being a very hands-on mum, it is actually very emotional for me to know that my littest baby turned 6months today!

Gosh! 6months already?! Yes this little fellow is 6months.


Milestones for Lil I:

-around 7.8kg
-able to turn on both sides  
-smile and chuckle 
-hold items in his hands and put them to his mouth
-already on semi solids
-drool monster
-enjoys bathing in the tub
-loves smooches from Papa, Mama, Korkor and Jiejie
-mini selfie prince!
-sunshine baby!!

Many say he looks more like Korkor, but I would think he also look a like Dora.. What say you?

Passing of a great man..

I will not spare the chance of telling my  children the passing of a great legacy today. For he was the one who built Singapore and the one who gave us an education today.
In respect of the nation mourning period, Rayconniebaby shall not post any other post till the week is over.

RIP Mr Lee. You will be held in great memories.

The young at heart and the young.. at Alive Museum Suntec Singapore..

It was by a stroke of words that Isa and I went on a playdate with my cousin W and his son J to Alive Museum on last Wednesday.


My angel.


Mr Van Gogh staring at us. 


My "twins" for the day.
They are born in the same year, 11 months apart and yet they ended up about the size as each other.
The joke of the day was:
Isa, what happened the extra 11month of milk powder you drank?


My little merboy



Hairwash anyone?


Our heros of the day.


The crazy quads of the day.
And I really wonder.. was it really us adults having fun or the kids having fun?


the whirlpool and my drama king.


One of the only decent clearer picture Isa took of me.


Fatty wonderwoman. ah.. Isa, you wanna try carry mama? lol


My lil drama king is really drama.


And somehow the boys just know what to do.. after taking so many pictures.


This was the classic scene from the movie "Up".
One nearly faling off, another one already "flying" in the sky.


And oh my twins again. Not bad having twins it seems.


Closed up of the twinnies.


Dinner with my sis and cousin. 
What a nice way to end the day with the cousins. When was the last time you had dinner with your cousins?

After this, Isa went on to have his "3D2N staycation" at my folk's place and he this time round, he didnt whine or fuss much.
You have grown up my son.
And poof, the holidays is over soon.
