The last 2 weeks…

@ 35 months 4 weeks

On 30th Mac, both mommy and son were feeling a little unwell, down with runny nose. Nevertheless we went ahead for dinner to celebrate the occassion. Afterall, Ryan was not showing any signs of being unwell throughout the day. His runny nose was somehow intermittent. So after picking hubs from work, we went to Jerry’s BBQ and Grill at Club St. The restaurant is famous for their hickory smoked barbecue ribs. Despite warnings from hubs I should eat something less heaty for fear of throat inflammation, I went ahead and ordered half slab of their specialty pork ribs. There were not many guests in the restaurant so the wait was bearable. After 15 minutes, the food came. Having tried the baby back ribs at Tony Romas and this at Jerry’s. I must say the latter come highly commended, at least from me. If you come to Singapore and do not like the mad Q at Tony Romas, this is worth a try.

 The leftovers.. which really weren’t any….that just shows how yummy the food was 

The last 2 weeks was horrible. Ryan was down with cold illness one after another. After $159 spent, a week’s medication, 4 days absence from school, Ryan is fully recovered from his symptoms. This is the first time he had fallen ill this year. He had actually recovered from his runny nose 3 days into Polaramine. I made a mistake of sending him to school on the 4th day – though partly on his request. On the 5th day, he was down with runny nose again, believed caught from school.

The Do-Re-Me-Fa-So medication that Ryan has to take 2 -3 times a day. One more milestone to note. Ryan no longer fusses during medicine time. That makes the whole process of feeding medicine so much more at ease. At some point he even looked forward to them. All he needed were just a syringe and water to play with. I cannot be more pleased. My boy has grown up… :D



In the last few weeks

Iryne’s Wedding, 8 Mac 09

It was one of my best friends’ wedding on the 8 Mac 09. I was honoured to be one of her chi-muis (8 guys and 3 girls ; yes.. my dear friend actually had some of her guy friends as chi-muis. Will post a pic of them when I get hold of it). It was such a fun filled and memorable occassion. There were many funny moment throughout the day. I had a swell of a time. Congrats again to Chua and Iryne and thanks for inviting me to be apart of your day.

A Visit to Grandma’s

No, not my biological Grandma :D It’s actually a restaurant located at United Square. We had read about this newly opened restaurant whose chef used to work for Madam Kwan in KL some time back on the paper. So when we found out they opened a new outlet in United Square which is much nearer to our place, we were obviously thrilled. I have always loved Madam Kwan’s nasi lemak and a visit to this Grandma’s is a must.

Can’t helped but to witness the close similarity to Madam Kwan’s. They used the same theme colours.


While waiting for our food…. Ryan engrossed with his new MRT trainset from Toys R Us


Here comes the food….

Nasi Lemak. Looks good but disappointing taste. The curry chicken was too salty and the sambal was too sweet to my liking.

Fried Hor Fun. Hubs said it was too bland.

Sambal Petai. I never liked petai but somehow this gets a thumbs up from hubs.

The 3 dishes and 2 drinks came up to about $50. Not quite worth it… :(

Meeting Up The Most Travelled Family, at least in the last one year 

It was such a coincidence that Chew Lee and I will be in KL the same time last week. We know it will be awhile before we are able to meet up again so we made a point to at least catch up for drinks last Sunday (22 Mac 09).

The last time we met up she was still heavily pregnant. Now, baby Kelsey is already in her arms, sleeping soundly most of the time, totally oblivious to his noisy surrounding at Starbucks, Pavillion.

Me and the Chewlee with the new addition to their family. Baby Kelsey is such a handsome boy with blond hair and sharp nose.

The two kiddos, still warming up

but not for long……….


Soon after, they were all over each other. Ryan as usual could not stopped hugging and holding Malaika’s hand. The last time the kids met and played together was some time back last year. They were still in Singapore when we would each each other frequently. That time the kids were still pretty much playing individually, not quite with each other. How time flies.. we met again this year and now the kids were inseparable especially when it comes to play. Simply love to watch them happily playing. So innocent, so carefree, so happy….
