Javier lost one more tooth today. This bottom tooth has been shaky for quite a while. I asked him how did his tooth drop off and he said:"Jerlene accidentally kicked me and my tooth come out"! I was like "What??!!?". Jerlene did apologize to Javier and she really did it accidentally while playing.

Chinese New Year will not be complete without watching a Lion Dance and an encounter with Fortune God (财神爷). This is an annual event at my sis place.
At the end of the lion dance, oranges were being arranged on the floor and depending on your luck, you might just strike a lottery. :-)

Javier was supposed to have an excursion to Chinatown few weeks back but it was cancelled at the very last minute. Since then, he had been asking me to bring him there. When Jerlene heard that, she too said that she wanted to visit Chinatown. Since we do not have any visiting to do today, I decided to bring my whole family to Chinatown. Jerlene and Javier were very excited.
I parked my car at Chinatown Point and we walked by the underpass all the way to Pagoda Street. We started exploring the area where shop houses were on both sides of the street.
On this very first day of Chinese New Year, we lazed at home till late in the afternoon when we started changing to get ready for some visiting. Once again, wish all a prosperous CNY!
It's Chinese New Year's eve today and we had our very own reunion dinner at home. Jerlene loves 鱼生 very much and she can really mixed it well!
Wishing all a happy and wonderful goat year!
My family had our reunion dinner today. Here are some of the food that we had for our dinner.
The day has finally come. We have been procrastinating for almost a year......today Javier had experienced his first tooth extraction at School Dental Centre (HPB). The outcome was......my worry was entirely unnecessary as the whole procedure went through smoothly.
At the end of the treatment, Javier got to choose a few Angry Bird stickers which the dentist had promised him during the last visit. And guess what, the treatment fee is only $9.00. Previously when we went to Q&M dental clinic, consultation alone already costs $30.
The next appointment will be in a month's time when Javier will be extracting the left baby molar. I decided to send Javier home to rest before I return to my office.
My little princess and prince had their first try at making their own fruit juice. Javier put in the cut fruits one by one into the juicer while Jerlene squeezed the juice out from them. At the end of their hard work, they were rewarded by a cup of refreshing fruit juice each.
Jerlene's birthday was a week ago and I still "owe" her a present. She had told me what she wants but I haven't got the time till today. I decided to bring them to town to search for the present. It has been quite a while since I last brought them out to shop mainly because they had always preferred to stay at home. Today it's different as they know we are going to get what they want.
We were at Toys-R-Us, Suntec. I gave them a budget from which they can choose anything they want but must be within the budget. Jerlene already had something in mind and very quickly, she found what she had always wanted. As for Javier, he went round and round because he cannot decide what he wants. It took him more than half an hour before he finally chose two items, which added up to be within the budget. After we happily made the payment, I bought an ice cream cone for them and they loved it, just look at Javier.....haha.......
When we reached home, they can't wait to unpack the presents. We have been "ignored" for the rest of the day. Anyway, seeing them happy, I also happy. :-P
