Ryan’s First Excursion Trip

@ 4 years 6 months 3 days

Bao Bei Reading Wonderland organised a trip to Seremban on the 9th October 2010 (Saturday). It was a trip comprise of 3 stops - Yakult Factory, Kompleks Kraf negeri Sembilan and finally a visit to the ever famous Seremban Siew Pow Empire. 

We departed from Bao Bei Sg Long at 8,30am. Traffic was kind on us. It took us no more than an hour. We reached our first stop at around 9.30am.

Yakult Factory Tour

Ryan’s first bus trip


1st stop: Yakult Factory Tour


They only allow Saturday tour once a month. Hence the big crowd from other schools.


Listening to Yakult talk (Good vs Bad bacteria). Ryan was evidently bored. More happy to play with his Transformer watch instead.


Looking down at the production process through the glass wall


The ‘Packaging’ part of the whole production process


Microscopic view of the good bacteria (in his words.. just red dots)


Kompleks Kraf Negeri Sembilan
Our next stop is the Kompleks Kraf Negeri Sembilan whereby the kids and parents get hands on weaving experience. I think it was quite an eye opener. It’s definitely an activity we will never get to experience in this urban city.
Daddy busy weaving his basket


Soaking the rattan into water so it wont cut the fingers


With his BFF Brayden (also his classmate from kindy). Seen here with the Ultraman trademark pose


Happily monkeying around with Daddy’s basket


Our finished products. 2/3 of them were my effort


Seremban Siew Pow Empire
Our last stop


Each of us are allowed to make our own siew pau from these pastry dough after watching the demo


The three paus on the second row were ours. Ready to be baked in the pre heated oven
Had our sumptious lunch at the restaurant. Food was good.


It was a fun trip. We enjoyed ourselves. We reached our departure point at about 3.00pm.

Mommy, you still love me?

@ 4 years 6 months 3 days

Some conversations Ryan and I had.

This conversation happened after I scolded him for misbehaving.

Ryan: Mommy why you scold me?

Mommy: Mommy scolded you because mommy loves you, mommy cares about you. If I don’t love you, I won’t bother. I’ll let you hurt yourself, let you misbehave.

Ryan: You scolded me because you love me?

Mommy: Of course. You don’t see mommy scold ‘friend yyy’ or ‘friend xxx’ do you?

Ryan: Only their mommy will scold them?

Mommy: yes….

So these days when he gets upset after being reprimanded, he would come up to me and ask:

Ryan: Mommy, you love me or not?

Mommy: Of course

Ryan: You scold me because you love me?

Mommy: Yes baby

Ryan: I want mommy sayang

Mommy: Okay okay (hug)

Yes, Ryan still wants mommy to hug whenever he gets upset. He still like to wipe his tears on mommy’s shirt because he could quiet down.

Ryan: (wail… wail … wail after being scoled)

Ryan: I want mommy sayang (wail wail wail)

Mommy: Keep quiet first or else mommy won’t sayang

Ryan: I can’t… I can’t keep quiet. I’m too sad. I want mommy to sayang while I’m crying. I want mommy to sayang with my tears

Mommy: Ok Ok (hug)

Ryan: See my tears mommy.. see my tears on mommy’s shirt? (smile right away)

Mommy: O-O-Oooo
