Watch out, Toddler on wheels!

I've been badgering Daddie for the longest time to get me a pair of skates and last tuesday, our quest for the perfect skates was finally accomplished!

Daddie found me a pair that are adjustable up to 6 years old, well made and look great on my tiny feet. YES! I'm now the proud owner of my very own K2 skates :). I fell in love with the skates the moment i saw them on the shelves. K2 is mommie's favourite brand for skates, too. Ever since she got acquainted with K2s about 5 years ago, she never skated in any other skates apart from K2s! Naturally, mommie was delighted when she found out that the pair of skates that we chose were K2s too!! That made everyone happy.

I'm now taking "private lessons" from daddie and hopefully, I'll be able to balance and skate on my own soon.

Mad Hatters' Day

It's Mad Hatters' Day today and all of us in N2 were to come to school wearing fancy hats! I chose a straw hat which mommie bought for me sometime ago because i think it matches my uniform best. Daddie wore his cowboy hat while mommie was hatless! She didn't have a hat and can't fit into any of mine.

It was a fun day in school because we were all eager to see what hats our friends would be wearing. There was Kuhoo who came in a crazy pointy hat, Yoshiki wore a pilot's hat which his mom made for him and Kota who wore a cowboy's hat just like Daddie's. All said, here are some snapshots of N2's Mad Hatters' Day!

A Vietnamese Hat complete with traditional costume Yoshiki in his Pilot's hat. Mommie thought he looked like a Japanese Postman!

Taka wore a simple orange hat

My friends with their fancy hats. Wait, That hat looks just like Willy Wonker's!

My First Poem

My first attempt at creating my own poems. Alright, i admit that the last sentence isn't original but the rest are my literal works - completely unedited. Hope you'll like it as much as my Mommie did!

When I give up, I want to do something
When I give up, I want to do something special
And you do this, and I do this

Say it with Noddy!

Dino-Mite James

After the last party at McDonalds - which almost bored me to tears - i kind of dread going for more parties. So when Mommie told me that she was taking me to James' birthday party, i told her i didn't want to go, but she would hear none of my complaints and dragged me there anyway.

I changed my mind about the party being another boring one when I arrived. A huge Dinosaur was at the door to welcome the guests and i got to choose my own dinosaur nametag and caveman party hat. I knew, that very instant, that this party was going to be very different and a really fun one! There were yummy cupcakes, story-telling, treasure hunt but my favourite part of the party must be the party favour....... each of us took home a tank of fish!

Happy Birthday James and thank you for inviting me to your party. It was the coolest Dino-Mite party ever!

Hello Mr Dinosaur! What big teeth you have Cool party favour. Now i have pets to call my own.
Mini Cupcakes for little ones Trust me, these cupcakes taste as good as they look

Dinosaur nametags and Caveman party hats

Storytelling time...

Looking Back at 2006 and Forward to 2007

Notable Notes of 2006

1) May 2006 - Breaking the Sound Barrier

I realised that I've reach the limits of sign language and decided that it was time for me to start talking. Sure, the adults could understand all my signs but i reckoned that if i wanted more from them, i better open my mouth and ask! Besides, my poor folks were beginning to show signs of anxiety. For, unlike my other little friends who started to talk way before they turned 2 years old, i wasn't even making any efforts to call "mommie" or "daddie". Now, when i start talking, i find it difficult to stop.... hmm.... guess, i'm just making up for the lost time?

2) June 2006 - My Road to Independence

I started school at Eton House. It sure wasn't easy for me in the beginning. Not that i've got separation anxiety (i have no issues with daddie and mommie leaving me in school - no tears!), but rather making friends wasn't easy. Everyone in class are already in cliques and being the "new kid", it took them a long time to warm up to me. Thankfully, I have Miss Deena who is always there to help me bridge the gap with the other children. In a few months, I have assimilated into the class and have made friends with everyone. I'm sure Daddie and Mommie must be relieved!

3) September 2006 - A Night at KKH

I will never forget that September morning when i woke up feeling so limp and restless. I have had a terrible night puking my guts out and pooing waterfall! Ah Mak and Daddie didn't have it any better. I could see that their faces have turned green from worry. They rushed me to the hospital and the doctors said i had to stay there for a day or 2. Surprisingly, the time spent in the hospital wasn't that bad afterall. I had the attention of 2 very nice nurses whom i fondly call Barney and Dora. hehee.. They took me on a walk around the ward and played all sort of games with me. I guess we've kept one another entertained...working in the ward must have been quite boring for them.

4) October 2006 - Pumpkin Patch Day

Mommie and Daddie hosted a party for all my friends in school. They entertained us with spider crafts, pumpkin painting, balloon twistings and "trick or treat". It was a very memorable party with all my friends dressing up in fancy costumes. Ever since the party, my parents have become the class"celebrity" of sorts... whenever my classmates see my parents, they will cheer in excitement "Joey's Daddie, Joey's Mommie"! I hope my parents have more tricks up their sleeves coz I'm sure my friends will be expecting another great party in 2007!

5) December 2006 - Parties after Parties

We ended the year with a slew of parties. There was a party for me, party for the family, party for the friends and party for the sake of partying! At the end of all these parties, i was the biggest beneficiary of it all... I think i've received enough toys to last me for a year! Thanks to everyone who contributed to my toy collection :)

Looking Forward to 2007

I've started taking serious chinese lessons at Berries World and will be starting music lessons at Yamaha very soon. Wait! Before you think that my parents are forcing me into these activties, they are not.. I was the one who asked for music lessons because i want to learn to play the violin just like Quincy in Little Einstein.

I hear that my folks are planning to give me a little brother or sister.... so while i still have their undivided love and attention, i hope they will also squeeze in another holiday or two for me this year!
