Fatty Brownie and Me

This is my new friend, Brownie.
.
Brownie has big head, big butt, big ears, fat leg, fat hand and short tail...He is brown in colour....So, mummy always called him Fatty Brownie...
.


After Socks lost, mummy get me Fatty Brownie as the replacement....In fact, Fatty Brownie exist before Socks lost...Previously, I played with Socks only and never bother Fatty Brownie....But, now....Socks 不见了....Hence, I play with Fatty Brownie whenever daddy and mummy are busy...
.
.
Fatty Brownie's tail is too short and his butt is too big...I cant bite her tail...
.
.
Sometimes, I play hide and seek with Fatty Brownie...
.


Fatty Brownie, cover your eyes and dont peep at me ya :p

.
Mummy told me...Eventhough I have new friend now, but I must not forget I used to have a good friend named Socks....I'm going to miss Socks alot....

Handmade baby cot bumper and pillow

I bought the Ikea fabric quite sometimes ago...Thinking to handmade a set of baby cot bumper....but it was being delayed and delayed...what else?? I have been very lazy to learn up the sewing machine...
.
Until 2 days ago.....MIL was in my bedroom playing with Tiffy...And I saw the fabric was still laying in the tool box....So, I told MIL that I wanted to sew a set of bumper to fit into Tiffy's cot....The old one was too short as Tiffy's bed is kinda odd size, it's bigger than the usual baby cot....
.
After lunch, MIL dig out some fabric and cotton....asking me how I wan to sew it....Aiks!!! I'm kinda lazy le...How come she so fast hand one?? Without further delaying....I start to measure the length of the cot, cut the fabric, describe to MIL how I would want the bumper to be.....
.
Hmmm...It's harder than what I expect....Have to have alot of logical thinking and experience to start sewing...At last MIL helped me to finish the whole project....
.
The bumper looks FABULOUS !!!
.
It should be called as baby cot bumper COVER instead....as the cotton inside can be removed and wash the bumper cover separately... MIL is very considerate... according to her, this will makes the washing process easy and the bumper will be more easy to dry....
.
Here is the project :
.

.
.


Tiffy's small pillow

.
I like the bumper...it looks great!!! Tiffy likes it too....
.
.
Happily playing with her new pillow....

.
Thanks, mom!!!!

What to do when you're abducted...useful if u actually do it...

**Copied from a forwarded email...it could be useful!!!**

Because of recent abductions
in daylight hours, refresh yourself
of these things to do
in an emergency situation...

This is for you,
and for you to share
with your wife,
your children,
everyone you know.

After reading these 9 crucial tips ,
forward them to someone you care about.
It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in..

1 . Tip from Tae Kwon Do : The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM . Toss it away from you.....chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.) DON'T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE. If someone is in the car with a gun to your head. DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead start the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes get out and run. It is better than having them find your body
in a remote location.

5 A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Some serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back and get someone -
guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator
instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP
It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking,well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathy of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point:
A friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' The lady then said that it sounded like the babyhad crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night. Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby ---- The Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana

Chicky want to fly?

Tiffy's latest 招牌动作 --- waving her both hands as if a little clumsy chicky ready to fly...
video

I have no idea since when Tiffy learn this...Whenever she is happy, excited, sad, want, dont wan, like, dislike...she will be showing this 'chicky flying' action...

Grandpa and grandma learn this 招牌动作too...Everytime, they both tend to do the same action when talk to Tiffy :p

Hmm...This is actually the 2nd day I gave Tiffy the super hard toothiepegs, she shows not much interest to it already...treating it more like an uneatable toy than a real breadstick....She even use her feet to 'liu' it closer to her when the toothiepegs drop too far...of course!!! at the same time...doing the 'chicky flying' action....

Is this real baby food?

I bought a box of babyfood from Isetan.
.
It's organic toothiepegs which suits baby from 6 months +. It's made from organic wholegrain wheat. In the packaging, it mentions that it's an ideal rusk for easing discomfort of small teeth cutting through tender gums. Try to keep it in the fridge as the coldness can bring baby's tender gums extra relief during the teething months. So, I think it's an ideal food for Tiffy to ease her itchy gum and desire of eating....
.
Tiffy was excited when she see this new food....cant wait to grab it from me and put into her mouth...
.


.
Oh!!! the toothiepegs is too hard la!!! I try to chew it, bite it....But, the texture is harder than rock le....How could they expect a baby with only 2 teeth to chew it???

.
Tiffy was showing her greatest effort to chew it....

.
OMG, it's really HARD!!!
.
.
After half an hour, the toothiepegs remains the same shape, same size....pity Tiffy~~
.
.
After an hour.....

.
FINALLY....Tiffy shows a little bit progress in munching this 'rock-hard' toothiepegs!!!
.
Is this real baby food?? I wonder~~~

Different baby??

2 weeks old
.
1 months 2 weeks old
.
2 months old
.
2 months 3 days old
.
2 months 1 week old
.
2 months 3 weeks old
.
These are the photos of Tiffy when she was less than 3 months old....The same baby Tiffy....same smiley face since birth....But how much she has changed in mere 3 months, it’s amazing, and scary too….

Compare the photos here with the main photo of the blog…. So much changes in the past 6 months, how many more to come in the next 6 months? Time doesn’t wait, and I should never take time for granted, Tiffy will continue to grow and change, and time with her will never be the same again, ever….

Contraction Pain and Give Birth

My best friend is going to give birth to her little princess tomorrow...I suppose she is now feeling excited, scare, happy, anxious, confusing, puzzle and etc....(it's abit hard to describe the feeling of a pregnant woman who is going to deliver her baby in anytime)
.
When I was pregnant, I remembered I have been questioning every mother I know, how does the delivery process, what are the symptons would happen before delivery, how does contraction pain feels like, how painful is it, how long to wait for the whole process and etc etc...The more I heard the feedback and answers, the more nervous I felt...but surprisingly, some of them gave me a very common answer: “IT'S PAIN, but after giving birth, forget already lo!”…. At that time, my thoughts were: “True or not...so pain yet can forget...dun bluff me la..." Some other mothers cant really tell me how pain is it..Thanks to the Epidural Injection :D
.
In fact, I dont really know how contraction pain feel like....I don't even know the symptons whether it's real contraction pain or false contraction pain...I remembered when I was at about 32th week pregnancy, I always have the feeling of 'Auntie' coming to visit me soon...tummy is feeling extremely uneasy....And at that time, I thought Tiffy will come out early than EDD...Doctor told me that the uneasy feeling was actually contraction pain....but if it's a real contraction pain, it will get stronger and stronger...the time frame will become shorter and shorter....but my pain will go away after a good rest...so, I think that is so called false contraction pain....
.
My EDD was suppose falls on 06.07.08 (what's a nice date horr?!) But, I guess Tiffy stay too comfortably inside my tummy....So, I gotta induce on 07.07.08....And as a timid mother, I decided to take the epidural injection...the whole waiting process was so smooth....NO PAIN AT ALL WHILE WAITING FOR THE 10 cm....what I feel miserable was the long long long waiting....I was in the labour room from 06.07.08 at 7pm till next day evening 4pm....aiks....almost 24 hours!!!
.
When I play back the whole labour scene in my head, imagining it happen all over again…. I can remember many details, I can tell the time that each thing happened, I remember things that hubby, nurses and doctors do, I remember I sweat alot, I remember hubby wipe my sweat away with tissue, my legs was tied up, I remember I felt like there was a whole lot of stool in my bowel that needed to be released during contraction that was pushing Tiffy out, but but, I don’t remember how the pain felt like, I don’t remember how painful it was….

Heard from someone, it’s nature way of ensuring women don’t get too afraid of going for their subsequent labour, and maybe that’s why we get memory lapse after labour, so we forget about the pain….believe it or not??!!

Clown Hammer Bench

How to ensure that we will not over pampered Tiffy? Everytime we go out, we will buy something for her...toys, clothes, rattles, shoes....
.
We just back from Penang today...And this is what happened in Penang...
.
Hubby : Di, long time we din buy toys for Tiffy already hor...Tiffy very pity le...always play with the same old toys...
.
Me : ya oh...sometimes, she dont even show any interest on all the old toys..she just throw it away when I give her...
.
Hubby : ok la...we see what we can get here....
.
(Hunting all the baby shops at Gurney Plaza)
.
Me : Di, I think Tiffy will like this le....(showing hubby the hammer bench)...she likes to knock things...surely this suit her very much....

Hubby : Will she use the hammer to knock her head arr??

Me : You think she stupid arrr....I scared she will use the hammer to knock people's head...
.

Salivating AGAIN

.
Tiffy is salivating a lot AGAIN lately.
.
She has not been salivating since 6 moths old...AND I have not been putting on the bib for her for so long time....I don’t know if it’s a sign of teething AGAIN. Her saliva is dripping out from her mouth to everywhere, our shoulder, our arm, our shirt, her toys, the ground, the table, the couch...salivate even more when she is concentrating playing her toys....

When I checked her gum during bath time this morning, I did not spot any white bumbs....hmm....lets see!!!

Baby food - Tomato

I feel bored on behalf of Tiffy for the same recipe of the porridge every week...I was cracking my head the other day what to put in her porridge...
.
This morning, MIL told me that she bought some organic tomato for Tiffy's porridge (I told her that I want to add tomato in her porridge the other day when I was in the pasar malam with her). After putting all the ingredient into the slow cooker....I feel something is not right...so, I check from internet whether baby can eat tomato....LUCKILY, I made the effort to check....See what wikiparenting tell :
..
"Tomatoes are not a wise choice for one of baby's first foods. In fact, they should only be offered to an infant who is over ten months of age. This is due to the acidity level of the tomatoes, which may upset a baby's sensitive digestive system. The acidity may also cause a rash around the baby's mouth, or a diaper rash."
.
Immediately, I take out the tomato from Tiff's porridge before it's too late....Silly mummy almost put Tiffy at risk....phew!!!

Rusk

Besides milk, porridge, fruits...Tiffy has rusk or rice cracker as her daily supplementary food.
.
Rice crackers is small in size...As a big eater, Tiffy can easily finish 2-3 packets in less than half an hour...so, it's not adviseable to feed her with this if it's a long waiting period occasion.
.
Rusk is rich in taste and texture, bigger in size...Normally Tiffy needs at least 15-30 minutes to finish 1 rusk....despite all these, rusk is more dirty and hard to clean up
..
Dirty cat Tiffy's eating rusk....
..
.








Nowaday, We always put Tiffy in the high chair when we are eating or at restaurant...of course she won't be sitting still...her hands will be very busy grabbing the plate, the fork, the spoon, the glass....In order for us to finish the meal 'peacefully', she needs to have something to eat as well...rusk and rice crackers are the best mates....

Potato Salad

Besides instant noodle with egg and luncheon meat, making some french toast with sausage, simple bento to work during pregnant...the last time I cooked a proper meal should be 2 years back...In fact, I do not feel annoyed to cook (but hate to wash the dishes, wok, pan and cutlery after that, who likes it?? :p)....but i just dont have the mood to cook....it can be the lazy bug bites me always or I suppose the main reason should be the ownership of a 'MY KITCHEN', a kitchen which 100% belongs to me....aiks!!! fact is fact..truth is truth...I gotta adjust myself to accept it....

Recently, my cooking mood comes back again (hopefully not hangat hangat tahi ayam, at least I hope it can last for more than 3 minutes, hehehe :D) This is my first, simple and easy recipe which I copied from a blog....HERE IT IS....POTATO SALAD
.


Ingredients:
Potatoes, boiled and mashed it
Japanese Mayonnaise
Canned Tuna
Salt
Pepper
Ebiko (optional)
.
Instructions:
1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except ebiko. Mix well.
2. Transfer salad onto a serving plate, sprinkle ebiko over the top and garnish. DONE!!!
3. Serve it as a side dish or high tea :)

Sweat so much??

Weather is extremely warm lately....it's like 40 degree celcius everyday and night!!!!
.
And the heat hits Tiffy too....she sweat in the morning, sweat while playing, sweat while eating, sweat while drinking milk, sweat while I carrying her, even sleeping, she sweat too....her pillow is soaking wet.....see the stain left on her pillow yesterday midnight...the 16 degree celcius aircon with full fan speed cant beat the heat!!!
.
.
This morning, Tiffy's body is full of rashes again.....what else?? the warm weather lo.....Tiffy's very sensitive to her own sweat...especially at the area of her short neck, her back and the joint area....all is full of reddish rashes now....pity Tiffy :(

Walker

Tiffy has been using the baby walkers for quite some times....from a L licence learner to a 'kopi O' P license driver, she is now certified as a F1 driver....BUT Tiffy is not driving her brand new walker...she is using a dunno how many hands car instead....(probably 4th or 5th hands)
.
The new baby's walker that my colleagues bought for Tiffy is not so practical (Sorry guys, waste your $ and heart)...the roller of the walker is too rubbery and it holds the ground surface so tight...Tiffy cant even move a step in the walker....so, my MIL dig out the walker from the 'muzium' which has at least 10 years history....old ginger is more spicy, same goes to walker....old walker is more practical...
.
Tiffy enjoys the old walker so much....she can move here and there in a very fast speed....sometimes move in a 'crab walking' style....to grab the newspaper on the coffee table, the remote control on the sofa, the biscuit tin on the TV rack....
.
Though I have read that walker doesnt help in baby's walking in any way cause it train different sets of muscle compared to walking, and many accident was due to baby's walker, so we are making sure her time in the walker is limited...
.




Tiffy's favourite activity...grab the newspaper and tear in into pieces and pieces...

If I'm putting the newspaper on the floor and read it...she will purposely move her walker onto the newspaper, use her feet to kick it, rub it....once I move her away, she will use her F1 driving speed, come back to me, repeat the same action...OKOK!!! mummy lose...

I bring the newspaper and sit on the sofa to read....this time...she will come closer to the sofa and use her both hands to grab the newspaper from me....

Nowaday reading newspaper is like fighting with her....I need to repeat...' Tiffy, dont kacau mummy' , 'Tiffy...why u so bad girl', ' Tiffy, play with your others toys' . And yet....her naughty action still continue and contiue.........

Tiffy hates hat

Tiffy doesnt like to put on a hat...This is the facts...

I prefer Tiffy to put on a hat....This is also the truth (Selfish mummy huh?!)...

In Tiffy's wardrobe, there are more than 10 hats lying nicely, unwear, some even price tag still attaching on it....aiks, the owner of the hats is so reluctant to put them on her little head...what to do??

video

In fact, Tiffy doest like anything attach to her head....hat, hairpin, hanky, clothes...she will use her hands to remove it...helpless -_-'''
