Ryan’s 6th Birthday Celebration (Part 2)

Cont. from here.

Ryan’s birthday falls on a Monday, so we conveniently celebrated it on his birthday eve which falls on Sunday.

My mom bought Ryan a cake. This type of traditional cake is the BEST and yummiest, at least to me! We had earlier bought more Elmo cuppies when we went to Ben’s for lunch with mom.


Like most siblings, they fight for everything, including who gets to blow the candles. So we had to light up the candles not once, not twice, but several times until they are both satisfied. T_____T



Asked them to pose for pics, this is what I get. Haiz…

Little one still monkeying…



Ryan’s 6th Birthday Celebration (Part 1)

Ryan @ 5 years 11 months

We went to Ben’s, Publika for an early birthday lunch with PoPo, AhYee and his partner in crime cuz, Wei Wei on 15 April 2012.

Food was acceptable (no biggie tho) but crowd was horrendous. Perhaps due to it was a Sunday. So service was predictably below par too. We were literally ushered to leave immediately we finished our meal. Bad! 👎👎

One and only pic I took of the occasion. Shame on me!!! 👎👎


Elmo Cuppies

Saw these cute Elmo Cuppies at Wondermilk, Publika when we went to order Ryan’s cake. Simply irresistible.


They taste as good as they look. Soft and fluffy. If only they were not of so much coloring.



I’m surprised Ryan has no allergy after consuming so much coloring into his system. 😝😥


The Tooth Fairy

Ryan @ 5 years 11 months

A few days shy from being 6 years old, Ryan lose his 2nd tooth. He dropped his first milk tooth on the 12 December 2011. So he is pretty seasoned about what’s going to happen the second time round.

Ryan’s first and second milk teeth were extracted by the dentist. The first time we didn’t really get a choice. His permanent tooth was sprouting out so we brought him to the dentist as soon as we felt the bottom central incisor (left) was shaky enough to bid its farewell. Despite appearing a bit scared, the whole dentist experience was fast and uneventful for Ryan. He was a brave boy!

Come second time, he wanted the tooth removed the moment he felt the shake. I persuaded him to be patient so to minimize the pain.

About a week or so later, Ryan told me his tooth is ready. So after his Bao Bei class on the 9th April 2012, we walked into the dental clinic without appointment. It was spontaneous and fortunately there was no other patient at that time. The whole process from the moment we registered to payment took less than 15 minutes. There goes his second bottom central incisor (right). Another milestone! Good job boy.

Dentist checking on his teeth. Apparently Ryan needs a filling on one of his right premolars.

Gau dim!

That night, he said he wants to draw about his visit to the dentist..




Just before he doze off that night, suddenly he jumped out of his bed screaming for his fallen tooth. Why? Because he had forgotten to place the tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy. Yes, Ryan believes in existence of Tooth Fairies because the first time his tooth dropped, the ‘tooth fairy’ gave him stickers.

This time round, he got this.. (Afterthought: Too generous! Pray he won’t be expecting more in the tooth fairy’s next visit)


Another addition to his tooth album.. See you again, soon?





The years gap

Ryan @ 5 years 11 months
Lil B @ 2 years 2 months

Just the other day, someone commented the boys don’t look like they are 4 years apart.

Apparently Darren look like he was 3 while the kor kor being on a leaner scale look like he was 5. I’m not surprised by the comment.

Pics taken @ Publika after attending Alisya’s 7th year old party.

Darren is a big fan of Ryan. He sees his kor kor as his idol. Whatever kor kor does, he will follow suit. Whatever kor kor says, he will parrot. Sometime back I read an article that says 2nd child do learn faster by imitating their elder sibling’s speech and actions; I couldn’t agree more. It’s a fact without denial. At least in my case and I’m glad despite the occasional fights, they get along together most of the time.

Monkey faces

Bought them bubble swords and they had a swell of time playing with them. Simple & affordable toys that brought smiles on their face.
