Smile smile...

We saw the moove media cow at the entrance of Punggol waterway entrance, and Janelle was prompted by us to check it out...

Janelle quickly run over and "what's that? What's that?"


I feel that Janelle is trying to pose yeah with her fingers... She is trying...

M: Janelle, take photo... Smile... Smile


When she ran to the next board, she was looking at it for a while and she looked at me and says "smile... Smile" then I realized that she wanted to take photos... 

So glad to see improvement in her. Although she need a bit more time then normal kid to react, but she is aware. 

Praise God... "For nothing will be impossible with God." ~ Luke 1:37

Racial harmony and hari raya celebration

It slipped my mind on Thursday and only realized that Janelle is ecouaged to wear Malay costume to school to celebrate racial harmony and hari raya....



Tried to dig out a pass down Malay dress but it's too big for janelle. Was thinking ok la, just a few hours.. And I sew abit in the skirt and it wouldn't fall down will do. But after dinner, me and hus was thinking the top is kind of too big for Janelle.. So we rushed down to mustafa to get since a couple of friends says mustafa there is Malay costume. (Not one but 3 says that, although I'm in doubt) as expected, mustafa sells Indian dresses not Malay... Guess many Chinese are like me, doesn't know what's the different in Indian dress and Malay dress. 



The best match of Malay dress I can get was the sia kebaya from mustafa. There is different prices some more.. $26.90 is better material and more like sia kebaya but that doesn't has Janelle size. So I got the cheaper one $20.90 with some design on the hems and material are lighter. Not so hot too.. 

Reached home about 11pm, quickly hand wash it and hang it in our aircon room. Was still worrying that it will not dry. But It's very dry this morning, quickly iron and put in front of the fan to bring down the temperature. And here come my pretty Janelle. 

Mummy says I have the potential to be ms sq girl... The big round eyes, charming smile, tall and slim.

My Naughty little girl..

School holiday activities: help mama making the bed: 

I'm a strong little girl


Once mummy stepped away, she throw the pillow to the floor and start playing with it.. 

Wang Fei look alike?

Janelle teacher feedback that she look like wang fei the singer of 我愿意。

Guess what?! 

Wu liao de mummy went and download an app and did a match.. And here's the result..


I try to match mine with Janelle.. And the app is pretty smart, know that I'm her mom. 






Taking over mummy job?

Many times I feel that daddy just don't appreciate mummy job... Not sure how many experience that, but definitely in my family. My husband always complaint that I didn't do a good job.. Cooked a spicy dish and he says We tortured him. Ask him to send Janelle down for school bus as I didn't sleep well in the night, he says he has meeting later and need more sleep. When he saw smartphone in my hand, he complaint that I spent a lot of time on iphone... The list can go on if I want.. :( To them, they thought they have bring back the bread and they are the king of the family. Time has changed, mummy also bring back the bread isn't it? But still need to deal with baby, then maid then the king then the king family too.. Nowadays woman is worst then olden days woman. Working mom need to multitask and doing multi jobs.. When I'm tired, I will just give myself a pat on my shoulder and telling myself I can do it. Whatever challenges in going thru, God is with me and He will see me thru just like the past years... 


Came across this daddy blog that describe how he did when taking over mummy jobs:

Meet the parent

Last Friday Janelle teacher messaged me and asked for a meet the teacher session. Im like oh no, what did my Janelle did that teacher wanted to meet me.

Teachers feedback
- she started under the care of mrs x who is more soft spoken. And one day when Janelle was punished by the teacher and was asked to stand behind, Janelle was angry and pulled the teacher hair that nearly caused the teacher to falls from them on Janelle is under the care with mrs Wong who are more loud, drama and firm.
- my drama princess started her training from school. She showed her happiness, smiling face to the teacher she likes and she showed her sadness, pity face to the teacher who is more firm to her. The extreme of her expression has clearly written on her face.
- janelle has a habit of pitching ppl when she is under stress and when she is seeking for attention. Mrs W will give Janelle a loud NO and explain the reason to Janelle in a very firm tone and telling her I DONT LIKE. And we had see a  reduce of her pitching to others. This will need to continue at home till she totally stop.
- teacher also shared that Janelle is very pretty and has a strong character like the singer wang fei. Mrs W the drama queen even sing 我愿意for her and Janelle will sing along with her mummering. Don't know if it's good or bad. But teacher warned us to tame down her strong character from young else we will pulled by her lead and prompt serving and helping her.
- request to work on sorting and focusing with her. 
- overall we see improvement on janelle for the past 6 months
