What is IT, Kieran!

At dinner, and as usual, he's running about and taking a long time to finish up.
Kiefer: I spy with my little eye, something white.
*trying to get me to play*
Me: I spy with my little eye, something pink, Kiefer!
Kiefer (with the usual cheeky look and voice): hee.. smacking!

After dinner:
Kieran: Mummy, I need the other one! (referring to what he needed to pack in his school bag.)
Me: What other one, Kieran!
Kieran (distracted on the iPad): the other one!
Me: What the other one? If you don't tell me, you'll just get into trouble tomorrow!
Kiefer (exasperated): WHAT IS IT, KIERAN?!!
Kieran: orh... the math book...

He constantly amuses and surprises us at how fast he catches onto things. He is observant and aware of what's going on around him. Sometimes sneaky too... Very adorable babe (tho' I might be bias, I'm his mum!)

A picture from earlier, small fry was so happy that Kieran was home that he ran out and gave him a big hug the moment Kieran stepped off the school bus! <3 p="">

Funny faces

The many funny faces of the boys.. all captured in a day!

Bangkok (June 2013)

This is really a very, very late post. We've been so busy lately that this is one trip that I didn't compile the photos of this trip into a photobook.

We didn't quite know where to go for our holiday and since our very good friend is residing in Bangkok, we thought we would go there for a holiday and visit her (and hubby and her cute little boy) as well. Initially, we thought that 5 nights in BKK was going to be too long, but it seemed like it wasn't quite enough!

Our friend drove us down to Pattaya beach on the first day. It was a long 2-3h drive but it was fun while we were there! We had lunch under the umbrellas and Kiefer went on the jet ski.. TWICE!


This is my friend's cute little boy. He wears the hand-me-downs from Kiefer and he looks like a little Kiefer! Kiefer adores him!! 

We spent the next day at Safari World. Again, it was a long drive just to get there, but really worth it. The safari park was a self-drive park and we could really get very close to the animals there. This park has a fairly good variety of animals but what's impressive is that quantity of each type of animals they have. The Safari World boasts the largest collection of giraffes in the world. They had many lions, tigers and 5 walruses. They even had Canadian Black Bears! I'm not too sure if the bears are doing well in such a hot weather though. The kids had the chance to feed the giraffes bananas that we bought by the bucket (though again, I'm not too sure if that really is a good idea for the giraffes). It was a good experience for the boys to have such an up, close and personal experience with the animals.

The boys probably had the most fun at Kidzania while we were in BKK. They had fun working all sorts of job but it was really darn boring for us adults. We had absolutely nothing to do. Hubby and I took turns to go do our shopping. He went off for a couple of hours to get his shirt tailored (Boss Tailor, Nana) and when he came back, I took off shopping at Siam Paragon.

 
While we were in Bangkok, we just had to do some historical sightseeing. We took a day trip to Kanchanaburi JEATH War Museum and took the train over the death railway (Bridge over River Kwai). I've been there years ago and it was good to bring the boys back again. It is just a little look at how WWII affected the lives of people, how the POWs lived and the sheer number of soldiers who died in the war. I'm sure they took a little bit of awareness and empathy with them when we left Kanchanburi.

We took a 2 hour ride in the train that crosses the part of the original Death Railway. The train went really slowly and we could see the original wooden tracks and how close we were plastered to the side of the mountain. It was a nice windy ride. We enjoyed having the wind in our faces we we sat in the rickety train.

We'll probably visit Bangkok again. It's a nice, near enough getaway with sightseeing and shopping all rolled into one. :)

In whom I can trust


As part of the church's (and kindy's) outreach, the K1s had a short performance during the morning service today. They sing In whom I can trust. I love the beginning where the kiddos closed their eyes, and I really felt God's presence then. I loved how Kiefer took this performance really seriously and performed all the hand signs to perfection.

Here's the song, enjoy.

Losing more teeth

Updated (13 July):  the 2nd front tooth came out too. Now truly BOGEH!


Front tooth on his left came out. It was pushing on the other front tooth such that it is also dangerously shaky now. It'll probably come off at the end of the week and he'll be a true bogeh by weekend i think!

Kieferism strikes again!

Kieferism on the passcode locked iPad:
Give me the secret password mummy!
I'll forget it after I put it in.

Losing baby teeth


Kieran is starting to lose his baby teeth. The first one took a real long time to come off and then suddenly his lower teeth all start to shake. The crazy thing is, the start to shake dangerously overnight!

10.5 weeks of school flew by just like that!

Yup, we've survived finished ONE term of school! Yay!! That was 10 and a half weeks (yes, school started half a week earlier) and boy are we glad the holidays are here!

Other than complaining (a lot) about having less TV and play time, I must say that Kieran has done pretty well in this term. He even made it through 3 weeks of assessment tasks in the final 3 weeks of school.

Even though he has much less time on weekdays, we've been spending more time as a family in our weekly Saturday morning cycling at ECP. Both boys are cycling very well now. We can now cycle for about an hour from the hawker center to the Safra resort and back.

Kiefer is also doing very well in his Chinese class. We have been so busy with Kieran in primary school that we simply ferry Kiefer to and from his class every week. We do not go through his work throughout the week (his bag stays closed until the next Chinese class) and to our surprise, he managed to score a 59/60 for his final review. This little one really surprises us all the time.

We are almost halfway into our one-week break. We'll probably head out somewhere for a couple of days and then back to our schooling routine next week, :( .
