29 May 2012 - My "card" from Jerlene

As promised, Jerlene drew a "card" for me tonight.  It seems similar to the one that she gave to Tracy last night, except that she colored the entire background blue this time.  Anyway, thanks Jerlene for the "card" and I pasted it on my bed board.  :-)

28 May 2012 - Jerlene is getting better with her drawing

For the past few nights, Jerlene has been very diligently sat on our dining table and do her drawing.  Her intention was to draw nice pictures on papers, which she imagines are cards, and give them to her friends, and of course daddy and mommy.  She has already drawn and given quite a few "cards" to her friends in childcare centre.  Tonight, she drew one and gave it to Tracy.
I must say that her drawing has improved quite a lot.  She said that tomorrow night she will draw one for me.  Let's see how it turn out. :-)

18 May 2012 - The up and coming Ballerina!

After stopping for one lesson last week, Jerlene's ballet class resumed today.  What made her so excited was that she finally got her ballet attire.  Let's take a look at the up and coming top class ballerina!  Jerlene looks great in her ballet attire.

15 May 2012: D3 launch but I "fell".......

Today was the launch of the long awaited Diablo 3.  My colleague took half day and went to the launch event.  I had asked him to help me collect my copy.  He started queuing at 1+ pm and by the time he collected, it was already 7:30pm.
Since I had already pre-installed the game, all I need was to get the CD-Key from him to activate it.  Although I can start playing, but I did not because I "fell" to the "URTI" demon even before the hell gate was opened.  I was not feeling well since 2 days back and today I finally surrendered to the tough "virus".  My head was like exploding and my throat felt terrible.  Hopefully I will get better in the next few days and able to fight through hell........  :-P

12 May 2012 - Sense of responsibility

As Tracy had a wedding lunch at Marina Oriental today, I brought the kids to Marina Square in the afternoon to meet up with her.  By the time we reached there, both Jerlene and Javier had fallen asleep in the car.  As I can't possibly carry the 2 of them at the same time, I had no choice but to wake up them.  And there is one magic sentence that will always work at this stage, "Let's go to the playground!".  Usually they will be very grouchy if they do not wake up "naturally".  However, the moment I spoke the magic sentence, both of them had their eyes wide open.  Within seconds, they got very excited and quickly got off the car.

There were many kids at the indoor playground on level 2 of Marina Square.  Jerlene and Javier quickly took off their shoes and off they went.  I had a hard time following the 2 of them around at the playground.

We spent close to an hour at the playground and Tracy finally joined us. We then went Anderson for an ice cream feast.  After that, we decided to walk around and there was a rock climbing event at the center stage.  Both Jerlene and Javier kept running around like nobody business.  I tried to get them to stop running but they just would not listen.  So both Tracy and I decided to hide at one corner and see how they react when they lost us.  Jerlene was the first to realize it.  Instead of quickly running back to look for us, the first thing that came to her mind was to hold onto Javier first.  She then walked back to look for us while holding onto Javier tightly.  There were a few times when Javier wanted to run away and Jerlene got to chase him to hold him back.  I thought Jerlene will get panic and may probably cry but she did not.  In fact, she seemed quite calm and good thing was, she never left her little brother alone.  Is that called a sense of responsibility?  :-)

11 May 2012 - Morning moon and cloud of "Arc"

As I woke up this morning, I saw a string of cloud in the clear blue sky.  I found it unique and quickly went up and took pictures of it.

Taking a closer look, I actually saw an early morning moon......

6 May 2012 - The Supermoon

According to wikipedia, a supermoon is the coincidence of a full moon or a new moon with the closest approach the Moon makes to the Earth on its elliptical orbit, resulting in the largest apparent size of the moon's disk as seen from Earth. Today is the occurrence of Supermoon for the year 2012. Fortunately it's not too cloudy tonight and I managed to capture a few shots of the moon.

5 May 2012 - Having Kinect Fun with Sesame Street

Of all the Kinect game titles, Jerlene and Javier love Sesame Street the most.  Firstly, they know the characters in the show, especially Elmo.  Secondly, this is a simple game specially designed for kids.  It's so funny watching them play.  In the video below, they were imagining themselves to be the characters in the game and flying up to the sky.......
