~ Gladys - Creative Play & Learn Performance ~

Gladys has been joining the Creative Play & Learn class with the community centre for about 6 months now. She stopped her drawing lessons and had 2 performances to date. Every Saturday, she will pack her bag and look forward to meeting her teacher and friends in class.

Our princess always have loads of fun and is a very active and vocal girl. She has a pretty strong character and does not seems to display any signs of stage fright - which might be good for her to do stage acts.

1st Performance - 28 May 2011

2nd Performance - 20 Aug 2011

She is continuing her new lesson next week and there will be more performances to showcase. ^_^

~ Denver - Dance and MontherTongue Performance ~

Outdated post: Denver had some performances in school a couple of months ago which I only find time to upload them today. :p

Our boy has been practising at home and the students and teachers have put in a lot of time and effort for the performances. Justin Bieber's song has been such a hit that the students sang along as they danced. At home, Denver and Gladys can also hum/sing a couple of his songs like "Baby" and "Never say Never". Time for me to catch up and get in sync with them in order to stay connected. :)

Dance Performance - 27 May 2011

Due to work matters, I didn't catch Denver's second performance but luckily Daddy was able to attend and gave him his support.
Mother Tongue (In Tune) - 12 July 2011

The audience had a good time and we are looking forward to seeing more performances. :)

~ 中元节 2011 ~

Time flies very fast. Almost every year we attend the auction dinner to mark the end of the lunar 7th month. The children always enjoy their free flow of orange juice and food. While waiting, they hooked on to Daddy's and Mommy's phone to past time. In between breaks, Gladys will walk to the front and watch the Teochew opera before joining us back at the table.

So many unusual things have happened during the Ghost festival. Gladys started pee-ing on her bed again for 2 consecutive weeks. I suffered from a swollen foot not knowing how I could have injured myself in the first place and Denver had a fall last week which injured his knee. With the end of the Ghost festival, I am hoping and praying that things will get better in the house.

~ Denver - A Bruised Knee ~

Early this morning, I received a phone call from Denver's school teacher that he has suffered a fall during P.E lesson. Denver spoke to me and I can feel that he was in pain and on the verge of tears. Nevertheless, he says that he can walk (limping) and continues to stay in school.

When I got back home, it was a pretty big bruise on his knee. Daddy cleaned and applied medicine on his wound as he groaned in pain. (Well, our boy doesn't has a very high resistance to pain.) It will take some time for the wound to heal and Denver is off from swimming lesson and cycling for the next couple of days (at least). :(

~ Drawings - My First Canvas Painting ~

Two months ago, I took Denver to participate in an art lesson held by Naive Art. While waiting, I drew a sketch and paint with the materials provided. Wasn't really able to complete it during that 2 hours period but I managed to finish it at home. This picture is currently pinned in the children's room for all to enjoy. HAHAHA! ^_^  

~ Gladys Cycling Lesson - Part 4 ~

After about than 2 months of weekly practising, Gladys is getting better and steadier with her cycling now. This morning she was able to conquer the curvy track. :) Although she had a slight fall after making a sharp turn, I believe she should be ready to cycle in the park next time joining her brother and the other cyclists and runners. :)

~ Lunar Birthday Dinner ~

It's the Lunar 7th month and it's also my lunar birthday month. Hubby remembered my lunar birthday and it's so sweet of him to take me out for dinner on this little special day.

We went to Jack's Place (without the kiddos) and had a simple and quiet dinner together. Thanks to Dear Hubby who has been so supportive during this period and brighten my heart.

~ My First Acupunture Experience ~

After living for 30 over years... this was the first time I went for an acupunture treatment. Reason: 1 week old swollen left foot. A total of 9 needles being applied and how does it feel like? Being biten by ants (my arch-enemy).

The needles stayed in my foot for about 20-30 minutes before they were being removed. I must say it did gave me some relief and I will be going back for another treatment this weekend. Can't wait to get well soon and say good bye to my pig trotter. :(

~ Happy 46th Birthday Singapore! ~

Good Morning Singapore! It's your 46th Birthday today and we are delighted! ^_^ The children are dressed up all set to be part of this special day with you.

We are sorry that we will be missing in action saying the pledge with you later tonight but here's an early tribute. Gladys has been learning hard to recite the pledge in school and here's their little present to you.

Unlike the previous years, we are expecting to spend a quieter National Day this year. No fireworks, or partying nor staying home to watch the National Day parade. It will be a simple family day out and night out at the movies.

~ National Day Celebration and Goodie Bags ~

While Denver & Gladys are having their own little fun and celebrations in school, Mommy also had my share of National Day performance filled with dance and songs at my workplace. I felt like going back to my school days where I received goodie bags, balloons and sat down to enjoy the show put up by the staff and students.

The stage area was beautifully decorated with balloons and there was also a lunch buffet catered for everyone. The children are delighted to see the balloons and little goodies that I brought back home. Looking forward to celebrating Singapore's birthday tomorrow!

~ Gladys Weekly Cycling ~

Earlier this morning, the children went downstairs for their weekly cycling. We are lucky that there are ample space in our estate for our little girl to practice. With me suffering from an injured foot, I rest by the side and watch them cycle in circles.

Still not very steady yet, but in times to come, I'm sure Denver and Gladys will race their way on the tracks.

~ Swollen Foot ~

2 days ago, I seems to have injured my left foot unknowingly. I only realised how swollen my foot was when I started to feel pain while walking. Coincidentally, it was about the same area where I had an old injury during my secondary school days.

Hubby took me to see a Chinese physician at Kovan and my injured foot was bandaged with medicine. I  couldn't recall how I could have sprain/hurt it since there was no fall. Hopefully the swelling goes off in a couple of days time.

Haven't been in my best of mood lately and this injury did not help any better. Still, I am glad and blessed that I feel more love and care from my dearest ones.
