Went to The Gardens on Christmas day and bumped into Chiu Chiu and Wei Wei at Moo Cow. What a coincidence!
Lil B declared these are his two favourites.

We don’t really celebrate Christmas. However, after much pleading from Ryan, I bought him a 4ft Christmas tree last year. We participated in the celebration by putting Christmas presents under the tree. Even Mama, YehYeh joined in the fun and bought presents for their grandchildren. Ryan was thrilled to the max of course. Darren on the other hand was still blur then.
This year, the tree is up early. I dug out two presents from the stack of new toys I have bought the boys from time to time. I wrapped them up nicely and left them under the tree. When Ryan came down the next morning, he was overwhelmed with joy and excitement. He kept asking what’s in for him. 23 more days before he could get the answer though.

We went to Mr Lim’s friend Elvin home Christmas party. Well, Elvin is actually the bro of Mr Lim’s ex school mate but over the years our friendship with this cute fella has grown closer than with the bro himself.
We reached there around 9pm as I do not want to interupt Ryan’s nap time (he woke up at 8.00pm). Ryan was as usually hyper but unusually cranky. But who could blame the little cutie, it was very hot there laaa…. Imagine, it hasn’t rained for the past couple of days and it was a BBQ occassion. Really a test of our patient caring this cranky boy.
Nonetheless, Ryan was okay la. He just refused to sit on his stroller, refused to milk, refused to be carried, refused to entertain Daddy/Mummy’s friends.. refused this, refused that… other than that he was ok ma.. yeahhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh.
This is the only decent picture we managed to shoot. The one behind is Mr Elvin Tham…
Last night we also met with Esther, CK and cutie Ethan. Ethan had a slight fever and still recovering from a small cut on his lips after a fall (ouch!!!). But other than that.. haha.. Esther, you’re right.. he’s still very ACTIVE. Too bad, I wasn’t able to capture any shots of the two hyper kings together… next time next time..

As I was strolling my time off in one of the shopping centres one day, suddenly it striked me maybe I could get a santa hat for Ryan. Well, not that I am so sure the size would fit but why not, it’s Christmas, just get one for the sake of the occassion wouldn’t hurt right Mr Lim.. Hehehe..
Anyways, I ended up didn’t buy. Why? Why? Because I wasn’t sure if Ryan would like a hat covering his head; knowing he can also be quite a fussy baby. So, what happened was, I came home and decided to try out a little trick with Ryan. Expectedly, he was very against anything on his head. Phew.. luckily mummy didn’t buy, else sure teased by Daddy for wasting money again.
Check it out… (from a very aggitated look to very manja with Daddy)
Note to Ryan: Merry Christmas baby….Love you alwaysssss. Muaks – Muaks

We have not really celebrated Christmas in the previous years – celebrate the holiday we get from it got la.. Anyway, this year’s Christmas is slightly different – it’s the first Christmas with a new baby and is indeed special for us. Like all other babies, Ryan is always fascinated with the Christmas ornaments and decor on a Xmas tree; and of course not forgetting those beautiful blink blink lightings. Can really keep him entertained for long.
Last night we went to Mid Valley (yeah.. again) for dinner at Dragon-i. It was our first time there; usually we dine at Madam Kwan or Spring Garden (err.. did I get it right.. neway the Tai Thong Rest). Food was alright but but the service suckssss big time. I wouldn’t perorate endlessly on how bad the service was but rather I would want to share on how happy and delighted Ryan was upon seeing those beautiful Christmas decor on the concourse floor. As usual, Ryan refused to sit still on his stroller so this poor mummy has to bring him ‘kai-kai’ so daddy and PIL could eat and subsequently take turns to entertain my cutie monster. Yesterday evening there were somehow more children running around the area than usual. So, Ryan was even more elated for being able to be part of the crowd until he is willing to sacrifice his nap time for anything (how mummy know Ryan was sleepy then?? -easy – through the constant rubbing of his eyes, yawning, sleepy Garfield eyes leh..)
Mummy managed to take some pictures before we went back in to finish mummy’s dinner.
