K1 and K2 Sports Day 2008

It was Sports Day for K1 and K2s today. It seems to be a larger scale than previous years. I participated in 7 events this year - The 3 legged race, Raid the nest, Fishing game, Fill the bucket, Obstacle course, Bus Driver and Hula Hoop challenge.

There was also the teacher's race where they had to dip their faces into mushy jello and teacher-parent 3 legged event. Pity daddie had a meeting this morning and mommie couldn't join in the race coz she's carrying Jamie. Otherwise, it'll be fun to see my folks participate in the sports day as well.

Here are some of the photos.

Hula hoop challenge. Slow and steady.

3 legged race with my parter Kaede

Team event - Bus driver. The bus driver must pick up all the passengers

Raid the nest. The team that picks up the most bean bags, wins!

Fill the bucket. I always love water games

Fishing Game - Each team fishes out the colours of their team. I think i'm good at it

The teachers' race - see Miss Lena and Miss Iris dip their faces into gooey jello

Parent and teacher's race - They up the ante by carrying eggs on a spoon

Everyone goes home a winner!

Hip Hip Hooray!! 3 cheers for a fantastic sports day!

Trick Question

I get asked this dreaded question from mommie all the time...

Mommie: Joey, who's your favourite person? Daddie or Mommie?
Joey: Both
Mommie: No No... favourite means, there can only be 1.
Joey: We are a family. Family is 1
*I see daddie sniggering in the background. hehe

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Hey guys, i'm back from my holiday in Hong Kong and Macau.

There're so much to tell you, it'll take pages and pages if i detail everything here. So i'm just gonna summarize some of the interesting places, food and people i experienced during this 7 days holiday.


I think Hongkong has the yummiest food on earth (at least to me). Mommie and Fatty gramps said they've never seen me eat so much before. I chomped down bowls of rice, baskets of dim sum (char siew soh, especially) and the vegetables and fruits are oh..soo... fresh!! I asked for kailan every meal and munch them like carrot sticks - yum! Fatty Gramps went to their local morning market and carted back trays of my favourite blue berries.

Mommie's cousin also brought us to Tai-O for vegetarian food. The journey there was truly ardous, with mommie and me feeling sick thoughout the car ride which went round and round the mountain. But when we sank our teeth into the yam fish and fried vegetable rolls, all the suffering was well worth it coz the food was really good and cheap. I wanna go back there for more! more! more!

Just some of the dishes we had. Too much good food, no time for pictures

This is the restuarant we went to

That's me chomping on a stalk of hongkong kailan

When in Hongkong and Macau, you can't miss their renowed Tong Shui. Found this little dessert outlet at Langham Place just next to our hotel and the walnut paste was excellent! Then in Macau, Auntie Su-ann brought us to this little inconspicious tong shui shop and it was here, i tasted the best mango sago - just thinking of it makes me drool. The touhua that mommie ordered was smooth as silk - so yummy, she downed 2 bowls of them even though she was complaining that she was stuffed after dinner. Well, i guess the myth that there is always a different stomach for desserts is true!!

My favourite has got to be the happiest place on earth - Disneyland. I absolutely love this disneyland coz it's small and i get to go on as many rides as i want - 10 to be exact! I know mommie will not agree though. She kept complaining that it's the worst disneyland she's been to. And daddie, hmmm... he said it's a condemned disneyland but the size is just right for a kid my age. My favourite show was the Disney Philamagic - you need to wear special glasses to watch this show. We spent 1 and half day here and it was hardly enough. I want more!!

Queuing for a ride

Another nice place for kids is the Ocean Park, there i got to see many ocean creatures up close. There are jellyfish, sharks, funny face fish, squids, dolphins and seals. We were very lucky to be one of the first visitors to witness the new ocean park show. I enjoyed the show tremendously and will be teaching my new pet stuffed toy pink dolphin a couple of tricks i learnt from this show

Look who came to lunch with us.

The worst tourist attraction we went for was the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride. We were stuck in the queue for 1 whole hour, all because of a major technical glitch, during which the cable cars start and stop, start and stop. People cheered when the cable cars started moving, only to boo when it stopped a few seconds later.

This must be mommie's favourite activity - her equivalent to disneyland. Her favourite? Gotta be the 4 stories H&M at Central and the factory outlets at Citigate. I got really bored shopping and daddie kindly took me to disneyland while the ladies shopped till they drop.

Family Time

One of the main purpose of this trip is for me to visit my Hongkong cousins (Background - I was given a choice of Tokyo or Hongkong for this holiday and i chose Hong Kong coz i wanted to see my cousins again). We had lots of fun playing together and just hanging around. Don't ask me how we communicate when they can't speak english and i can't speak cantonese. If you don't already know, Play is an universal language ;)

More of my cousins

For daddie and mommie, they wanted to visit Auntie Su-Ann who's working in Macau. She brought us around macau and i think the nicest part of macau is the venetian - though it was a pity we didn't get to ride on the gondola. My memories of macau - Dog poo all over the road like land mines, Mommie's memories - Macaurians are the rudest and crudest pple she ever met. Daddie's memories - Smokers' paradise, if people there don't die from smoking, then they will probably die of 2nd hand smoke. If you ask them, they probably won't wanna go back to macau again - save for visiting our dear auntie su-ann.

Ah Ma was in macau too

There're a lot more to say but you are probably bored from reading this now... so let the pictures do the talking... More pictures of our trip can be found here

My Wish

While we were at the Venetian in Macau, daddie gave me a coin and told me to throw it into the river to make a wish. This is what i wished for..


I wonder why my wish hasn't come true...

If all the raindrops are......

One of my favourite Barney songs is this Raindrop song that goes "If all the raindrops are lemon drops and gum drops, oh what a rain that will be. Standing outside with my mouth open wide, AH. AH.. AH..."

A couple of days ago, in the same spirit of this song, i had a conversation with Ah Kong

Ah Kong: Joey, I wish that the raindrops are gold coins!! Then i'll be rich!
Joey: Oh... I'll like them to be chocolate gold coins
Ah Kong: No!! Must be real gold coins. Chocolate coins won't make you rich
Joey: Sigh... then i wish it'll rain pink dresses, so all the girls will have pretty dresses to wear.

From this conversation, i learnt this - A kid's life is so simple and innocent, all we want are simple things in life. Adults? Sigh..... they are always money-minded.

I learnt this word from Mommie on our flight back to Singapore. It took me just under 5 mins to learn to pronounce it and say it really fast. Back home, I am till teaching Ah Kong this new word and till now, he hasn't been able to master it at all. hehee...

Now everyone say it with me....

Joey the Joker

Daddie and Mommie says i've learnt to appreciate puns. Next on their shopping list - a kiddy joke book :)

Joey: Let me tell you a joke ok.
Joey: Do you know who ever steals soap from a bath?
Daddie and Mommie: *clueless*
Joey: A Robber (Rubber) Duckie


Joey: Do you know why birds fly south in winter?
Daddie and Mommie: *clueless again*
Joey: Because it's too far to walk!
Joey: HA HA HA. Funny eh?! YOU MUST LAUGH!
Daddie and Mommie: *breaks out in laughter*

Hmm... i'm wondering if they are laughing at my jokes or at me??

1 week of Isolation

I've been isolated from the rest of the world for 1 whole dreadful week - no thanks to my friend's parents who continued sending my friend to school even though my friend's sibling had contracted the Hand Foot and Mouth dieseas. Naturally, my friend caught the virus and passed it on to many of the kids in school, including ME!

Although the whole experience of being down with HFMD wasn't as bad as my folks had anticipated to be, my 1 week "jail term" at home was truly agonising. I missed going to school and playing with my friends, going to the playground with Ah Kong and shopping at vivocity with Daddie and Mommie. I was deprived of my Boost Juice and Earl Swensons milkshakes for 1 whole miserable week.. ARGH!

Since i had no friends to play with during that period, i decided to entertain myself with:-

1) Playing teacher - I thought i will make good use of my time "educating" my brood of pets. Here's the class photo.

2) Playing Chef - Ok... i know you will find it digusting but i also spent a fair bit of time whipping up some great dishes with the help of fatty gramps. I made some wantons, Jelly, mango pudding and salad. Sorry no pictures, my hands were too dirty and fatty gramps ain't known for her photography skills.

3) Watching TV, DVDs - Daddie and mommie bought me a few new shows to keep me entertained. I've got Carebears (i heard that it was mommie who wanted this), Barbie's Mariposa, Disney Playhouse and Diego's magical mission.

4) Beading - Just trying my hands at being a jeweller. I hope to complete my bead necklace for mommie soon.

Yesterday, i was released from misery with the HFM virus having completed it's course on me. To celebrate my freedox we went for a nice dinner at the Free Toy restaurant (aka Ma Maison) at my request. My family absolutely loves this restaurant coz Daddie gets a free beer, mommie gets a free dessert and I get to choose a free toy from the wicker basket. After the dinner, it's customary for us to grab an ice-cream each from Azaru Sabo before we call it a day :)
