My parents came over to watch the kids today. When they were leaving, EJ decided that he'd teach Emma (who's just under 4 months) a thing or two. Looking at her, he said:

"Mei mei, call 'Ah Kong'. Say 'bye bye'"

Yes, teacher!

First MRT ride

Milestone: Emma took her first train ride today on the NEL from Chinatown to Outram.

Collected her passport today.

She starts cracking up while playing peekaboo.

She did her first full flip 2 days ago

Kueh Bankit

It's Chinese New Year, and as usual, we stocked up on a number of festive goodies.

Pointing to the Kueh Bankit, EJ went: "Eat!"

I asked: "How many?"

EJ: "Many!"

Me: ...

On TV one day

A Tiger Beer Chinese New Year commercial was showing on tv. When the bottle appeared in the last frame, EJ exclaimed:


Such innocence.

Contractor Encounter

We moved into a new place two months back and have been doing our renovation in phases.  We're now in phase 2, but a few days ago, I spoke to our designer to have some cabinets done during Phase 1 rectified.  He was briefed in person, and he said that he'd arrange for the carpenter to come down.

Today a team of two persons came down:  Carpenter 1 and Carpenter 2.

Carpenter 1 went upstairs to fix the cabinets in the bathrooms, while Carpenter 2's role was to fix the ones in the hall.  After he fixed some, he said he completed it.  So I pointed out one main area that wasn't fixed yet.  Basically a piece of a wooden panel looked slanted... but he couldn't see it.  And when he finally did, he told me...

Carpenter 2: It's like that because of the heat and sunlight. That's why it's warped.

Me: Huh?  It's only been 2 months since we moved in. (Plus it's indoors!)

Carpenter 2: Ya, it takes only a month or two before it warps.

Me: (err... do you think i'm that dumb? If it warps, then ALL the panels would be affected right?)  It's been like that ever since you guys completed the job.  (We just decided to point it out to you guys since you're doing phase 2 now.)

Me to Carpenter 1: Do you see that the edges of this part is protruding?

Carpenter 1: Yes, I see it.

Carpenter 2: ...

So I left it to them to fix it.  After they were done, it was much better.  But I decided to throw in a spanner.

Me to Carpenter 2: If the wood warps so easily, why did you guys supply me such low quality material?  Shouldn't you guys have suggested something better?

Carpenter 2: Err.  All wood is like that one.

Me: (riiiiight. Not the first time I'm doing renovation, you know)

If the workmanship is at fault, don't blame the poor wood.  Anyway all is good now  :)


It's been a while since I last posted an entry. So many things have
