Gong xi fa cai everyone!!! Last few days had been cray cray cos really to be in a house with four kids below 5 is no joke. We were constantly chasing after someone or stopping someone from dropping something πŸ˜…πŸ˜… So exhausting I just fell flat on the bed every night πŸ˜‚

I cannot imagine when I go back tpg again this Tuesday to meet my sil and her additional two kiddos. Also under 3 haha. Will be super laujuak lol

Anyways back to the reunion dinner. As usual we went out to makan cos it's mess free at home haha. Someone all dolled up for the occasion πŸ˜ƒ

Sorry to post this hideous pic but the steamed fish was the best I've ever had in my life haha. Every piece was buttery smooth omg I died and went to fish heaven lol. It became like this in no time cos everyone just devoured it lol.

Yums too

Ahkong bought the little king a rooster balloon and he was ecstatic. Kept him on his seat for quite sometime so we could stomach some food hehe

Loving his rooster πŸ˜‚

Showing off to his cuzzie

Thank goodness princess was not choosy as long as her 'transport' walks and move around πŸ˜‚

Mil made this for supper. So bloated by then

Then it was goodnight from my babies in their twinning pjs

First thing in the morning on first day of cny. These two haven't gotten over school yet it seems haha

They constantly found themselves new locations to self entertain

They decided to let the baby join their fun in the end πŸ˜€

Cousins for life

No one could catch a wink in the household cos these two would come treat you like hot wheels track ahha

Cheeky fella is cheeky. Ahkong tried to doze on his lazy chair and this fella would go and pinch his nipples or stick his colour pencil into his umbilicus πŸ˜… Or hit ahkongs face with his rooster balloon.

Yummy poonchoy for dinner.

All of us but cropped cos of the square picture setting zzzz

Caption this πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Loving his meimei cos I bribed him with sunflower seeds hehe

A good transport is a moving transport πŸ˜†

Lousang round two. See how the little king lousang. By scooping the pile of veges with his fork and toss it opposite into his ahmas face 🀣🀣🀣

Then we went back to celebrate mils birthday. No prize for guessing who wanted to blow the cake

Today

Our car got kissed on the rear during our journey to hubs relatives house. Well you see, the traffic light was right at the bottom of the slope. So cars would brake abruptly when it turns red. Hubs braked on time. The car behind braked on time too. But suay the third car did not and hit the car behind us which subsequently hit us. Thank god it was not a major damage la but it's really inconvenient cos we still had to go to the police stn to report.

Thank god we didn't hit the car in front too or else the airbag may come off and little king's car seat is facing front leh. We had no choice cos we can't fit both car seats behind leh. So for that I was very very thankful that no one was harmed in the accident. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»

At the relatives house. Little king was in awe at the long fireworks he pulled one small piece off πŸ˜‚

Wah packing for two kids and a dog is serious businessπŸ˜…

But finally done and time to balik kampung!

All decked in cny clothes from last year for his school's cny celebration yesterday ! He was so happy he didn't have to go to school today. Kept saying ai go kai kai πŸ˜‚

25 Jan

So so so much to do at work and pack for the holidays πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

Fetched the lil king from school today and the teacher held me for a little while cos he had to discuss something with me regarding the boy. I was like shit this doesn't sound too good. And there goes my lunch time huhu.

Turns out that he had been quite 'naughty' in school recently. He would suddenly hit or pinch his classmate or as of today poured water onto a classmate's head πŸ˜₯ And he actually finds it very funny πŸ˜₯

He's not an aggressive kid so he just do it out of extreme cheekiness? And trying to push his boundaries perhaps? The teacher told me it helps if we reduce his ipad/ iPhone time (points finger at daddy) and spend more time to accompany him physically to play so that he will realize that it's actually fun to play toys instead of 'playing' people cos he doesn't realize he's hurting them. And also to read him stories to instill nilai nilai murni in himπŸ˜…

Sigh, it's been only a month and I have to meet the headmaster d. I know this is just the beginning 😐 I was surprised actually cos at home he's pretty mild and doesn't hit or try to bully us. To the extent I was worried he would be bullied at school. How wrong was I 😏

I was worried if he kacau the older kids they might hit him back with a vengeance then I really no eye see πŸ™ˆ. I really hope it's just a phase and he's gonna find his mommy very annoying for reminding him not to bully his frens πŸ˜…

Told my aunt and her reaction was like ' hello he's only TWO! Tell the teacher it's your job to teach him what is right and wrong cos obviously he doesn't know??' #samsengstyle πŸ˜‚

But I'm glad this was brought to my attention at an early stage so that we can intervene la. If not one day if he comes home with a black eye also I don't know why it would be too late. But then I also wondered if the big kids kacau him first cos he normally doesn't react unless provoked. πŸ€”

Poor little king down with flu so ended up injuring the surface of his nose and face from excessive rubbing of his snot. Cny celebration in school this Thursday hope he recovers by thenπŸ™πŸ»

18 Jan

Dinner earlier. Ran out of oil so the fish was not as crispy as I expected it to be ☺️

Part of the kids cny clothes. Felt like I've been washing their new clothes forever πŸ˜… And there are still some in storage πŸ˜† No wonder my mom said their new clothes can last them for the whole year lol. In my defense these are accumulated over months during sales period and also gifts that were too big for Javier during his fullmoon and first birthday. Fits him just nice now haha πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

16 Jan

Dinner yesterday. Tried cooking clay pot salted fish with pork belly slices. Not bad tasted more like a kungpo dish with fried salted fish πŸ˜‚ And stir fry French beans with carrots and scrambled eggs for the little king

Kungpo squids with some stir fry vege for dinner tonight. Don't ask me to name the vege apparently it's from the same family as ti wang chai πŸ˜…

Then hand itchy made some almond florentines since I asked my mom to help me lug the premix powder from Bm. According to my colleague it's fail proof and need only 8 mins to cook so even if you have your hands full with two kiddos it's still doable. And much healthier than all the cny fried stuffs. Little king loved it so much he kept taxing all the broken pieces πŸ˜‚ The old king too πŸ˜‹

Almond florentines recipe

I have no exact measurement for each component just tabur according to my preference @busymommy. I just sprinkle some of the premix powder (added half tsp of salt in the powder) onto the lined baking tray. Then just tabur my seed mixture ( almond flakes + pumpkin seed or any seeds you feel like munching ) then cover the seeds with the powder. I like thin crisps so I didn't layer my seeds too much. If u like it more sticky add more powder lor. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds onto the mixture.

Then chuck in to your preheated oven at 180 Celsius for 8 mins. Cut when still hot or just crack it when it has harden. Simple only hehe. Hope you understand what I'm trying to say trying to calm my screaming babies atm lol
