Imsomnia

My mama bought me this ridiculous looking sleeping bag, so I don't kick off my blanket during my sleep, and everyone came to see me like looking at fish at the aquarium.
On the first night, my mama put me in it, and I loved it, but a short while later I woke up because I was feeling so hot, and I started kicking and wriggling, but I didn't get it off. Mama came and get me back to sleep, but I kept waking up, and mama got very annoyed, she told me it is 3am and papa need to sleep because he has got things to do in the morning! It was a hard night but mama manage to get me to sleep at 5am. I woke up again at 7am, and this time mama got me out and I was happy! Last night she put me in the sleeping bag again, and I didn't go to sleep till 12, and when I did, I keep waking up, and again I started to cry at 3am cause I had enough! This time mama notice the problem, she took me out of the sleeping bag, and that was way better! I slept till 8am! Good morning everybody! I love you!

I Am A Big Boy and A Good Boy

Since I am a big boy, I might as well be a good boy, so the first thing to be a good boy is to be friend with my mah-mah! I let her carry me around and smile a lot to her!And second, I be friend with my yeh-yeh, and smile a lot with him and let him cuddle with me!
Then I let them carry my other cousins, and I be friend with them too!
Lastly, I give papa and mama the biggest smile when they put me in my car seat, and even fell asleep in it within 2 mins!

Me 4 Months Old Today!

Hello peeps, I am a big boy today, I am 4 months old today! So my papa decided to take me do big boy things:
Hang out with papa at "kopi tiam" (coffee shop), and chit chat with suk-suk (papa's brothers). Note that I got a mossy bite on my forehead! Bad mossy!
Visit a garage: What kind of man don't visit garage? Moreover, I am from a foreman family, my yeh-yeh (papa's papa) is Sitiawan's most famous foreman, my suk-suk (papa's brother) is now taking over yeh-yeh's place, and my dudu suk-suk (who is the owner of this garage I am visiting) is tyre specialist, also my ku jeong (papa's sister's husband) is mercedes specialist!
Papa bought me a new car yesterday, so I have to make sure they are doing the job proper, and I must also personally choose the right rims for the car, can't trust my parents on that after what they did to my hair!
After that I listen in to the men's conversation about tools, cars, and chics!
hmm...when I got home, my papa say today is my big day so need to get mah-mah (papa's mama) to do something to my gum. They said it will help when I am teething! Mah-mah rub some boiled vegetable all over my gum, it taste delicious, I was liking it, but I realized that it was mah-mah who is rubbing it, and I started to cry! Then mah-mah took a piece of chicken to touch my gum signified me breaking fast, and no longer just a milk baby, I too eat meat! :)
It is good to be a big boy, meanwhile I continue to bully my yeh-yeh and mah-mah, and cry whenever they touched me! But when I am out I smile and talk to everyone!

My Birth Story

We are back to KL from the island and mama went into the room where she shed her first tears while breast feeding me, and she thought of the day of my birth. So she decided to write down my birth story before the real version get distorted by diminishing memory!


It was on the 28th of June 2008, mama's ObGyn told her to be admitted to the hospital to induce her and get me out of her already very big tummy, when I was only 1 day late. But the doctor said that mama is at high risk (I have no idea what is that?), and it is better off to get me out sooner.
So on the morning of 28th June, Papa, ah Xiang Jiu Jiu and Uncle Harick accompany mama to the hospital. My mama packed PSP to play, books to read, and movies to watch, in preparation for a long labour session. They arrived UMSC at 8am sharp, papa sent ah Xiang Jiu Jiu and uncle Harick to get us yummy breakfast from SS2, while papa and mama went to see Professor Eugene Leong.
The hospital personal told papa that our room is not ready, and we were brought into a waiting room where mama is being strapped with the CTG which the doctor can listen to my heart beat. I don't know why when he strapped the equipment on mama, I got excited, and my heart beat raise, and suddenly it dropped again. Prof Eugene told papa and mama that my heart beat dropped from 140/min to 70/min, and it repeated when he was showing my papa the reading! And Prof Eugene told papa and mama that it is advisable to perform a C-section to take me out. He left papa and mama alone to discuss about it. Mama was very disappointed that she can't go through natural birth which she had always told me about (she always whisper to me to give her a smooth delivery). But it is for me and her safety, papa and mama finally agreed on the c-section.
Once the decision was made (over 5min. time), the doc call the OT, and preparing mama for the C-section, it was only 8:15 in the morning and their breakfast hadn't arrived yet! Papa was rushed to the registration counter to register mama, while mama was being changed. When mama was wheeled at the corridor, she saw papa sat at the registration counter waiting, the nurse told papa that we are going to the OT, and we heard papa told the nurse that mama wasn't registered yet because the registration counter just open and computer was starting up! But the nurse told him not time, and asked him to see us off then only go back to register. Papa followed us all the way to the entrance of OT, and he was told that he wasn't allowed further in, and he had to say good bye to us and waited outside! There I can felt my mama's heart beat rise, I think she must be scared not to have papa by her side!

When we went into the OT, a guy told mama that he is going to give her anesthetic from waist down, and I felt mama's heart beat beating like drum again! Later on I felt many movement around us, and Prof Eugene told mama he is going to start. Suddenly I felt someone pulling my head, and arms, and also someone pushing my bump! And the next thing I felt was light, and cold! Too bright and too cold for me that I started screaming! I felt myself air borne, and heard mama calling my name! Next thing I remembered was being cleaned and wrapped in a blanket and being wheeled out from the OT. There I saw my papa waiting at the door!He Kissed me and left me with the mid wife and went back to wait for mama. I think he must be worried for mama. It was a very long wait, and there was still no mama. I was left alone in the nursery room, and I got scared, I didn't feel mama's warmth around me anymore! I started to cry...And suddenly I heard a familiar voice, and my papa!!! He was by my side again, and singing me songs that I love! See how skillful my papa was?
My papa pick me up with TLC, and finally mama is out! The first thing she want was me! She told papa that she had not seen my face yet, and all she saw of me was my pee-pee and my ding-dong! So papa quickly brought me to her, where she inspected every inch of me. That was the first time I meet my mama face to face too!

After that is family bounding time! I felt so happy to be near mama that I fell asleep straight away. And later on Xiang Jiu-Jiu got to carry me for the first time, and he was too scare to break me because I looked so fragile!
And it will not be a moment without a photo session with Uncle Harick!
Uncle Harick and me on my first day

You must be wondering why my mama's delivery entourage look so strange, and where are my kong-kong, poh-poh, and jiu-jiu? All of them are overseas! And my mama was left with the care of young men! The nurse at the hospital was trying to figure which of the 3 is my papa because my papa does not look like the father type! ;p
So that was my birth story! Papa mama I love you!

KL-It's a Jungle out there!



I am back to mama's house in KL, and I am settling down a lot. I cried a little on the first day, but on the second day I am happier, because there are a lot of nice things to see here. I get to play outdoor most of the time. And there are many nice plants at my poh poh's house, and I love the pretty flowers!
I also get a high chair which I enjoy sitting in it, and sometimes I get little friend accompanying me. Here I don't miss my island home too much because there are many things to do.
Besides the plants and small animal, I also get some friends, there is a beautiful baby Liv staying at my Jiu-Jiu's house, and we had became friend.
Liv has many toys which she brought from Bali, and one day I was playing with them, I got attacked by her komodo dragon!
The French dragon french kissed me with it's venomous tongue!After putting a brave fight I got attacked by the elephant!
And of course at the end I was saved by tata Carine...
and we became friend after that.
Phew, no wonder they say it's a jungle out there! My adventure didn't end here, papa and mama took me to see a doctor and saying that I need my vaccine again, but this time I didn't cry as much as I was last time, and mama said I am such a brave boy and papa said he is very proud of me!
You see the mean plaster on my thigh? That's where the mean-o-jab went, and I wasn't even crying in the picture! But that night I didn't feel too well, and I had my first flu! Boo-hoo....

Was It Love At First Sight? -Mama replying tag

This is the first time I got tagged, and I don't really know what to do about it, but I guess is like passing the ball around...so here goes!
Kai-Jin was...hmm, I don't know what to say. The first time we met, I only saw his pee-pee and his ding-dong, and the next time we met face to face was 2 hours later! So was it love at first sight...I am not sure?! It was a long and anxious wait for us, and to finally see each other face to face!
To hubby and me, Kai-Jin is the most beautiful baby. Despite his very small eyes, and his big nose...but we think they compliment each other! We knew that our baby will never look like the poster babies, but he will look very good in his own way. The love just gush out the moment I laid eyes on him. Hubby told me he got a knot in his throat when he first saw Kai-Jin. My love for him just get stronger and stronger everyday, but it was after 1 week later that the tears of joy hit me! After speaking to several mamas, they all told me that the emotion kicked in late for them too. And most papas were more emotional during the first day.
Even until now I still marvel at our work, on such beauty we have created. Watching his face, make me fall in love over and over again with him. So it is more than love at first sight, it is more like love at every sight.

Like hubby always say, "I miss yesterday's Kai-Jin!"
He is growing so fast, and without us realizing he will be mobile soon! Looking back on his old photos, I really miss the new born Kai-Jin!

Ok, I am throwing the ball to another new blog friend: Baby Hao Re, Kai-Jin's Cousin.
Here's my first tag! :)
Replying to Synnee's Was It Love At First Sight?

Look Like Who?

With most people said me and mama are like photo copy, and that made papa sad. So he went home and found this:and...
So what do ya say??

My Journey "Home"

Papa and mama told me that we are going home...but I thought the one on the island is my home!? And why are we going home when we are home? Mama told me that every year during monsoon we have to leave the island home, and go to the mainland's home. First we will go to papa's home in Perak, and then we will go to mama's home in KL, and we will be moving everywhere during these 4 months. I am not sure if I like that.

First, mama strapped me in the car seat that they have been preparing me in, and I slept in it straight away!When I woke up, I found myself still in the same small place with baggage all around me, I wanted to protest, but found all my favourite friends surrounding me, and that made me happy.
But after a while I got tired, and hot, I started to make a fuss, and mama finally took me out of the horrible car seat! But I just want to go out of the small space. After making the adults singing my favourite songs, we finally arrived Kuku's (papa's sister) house, and papa decided to stay 1 night there because is my bath time, and I am not happy if he missed it!

On the next day, we are ready to go out for the famous Ipoh Kuay Teow, but the heat made me grumpy, so my everything can papa prepare me the portable cooling station!
I was very happy that morning! After breakfast we packed again, and mama told me we are going to see yeh yeh and mah mah (papa's parents).
When we finally arrived at yeh yeh and mah mah's house it was very very hot! I miss my beach! And each time yeh yeh and mah mah carry me, I felt needles piercing all over my body. And papa and mama keep telling me off for crying! I am not allowed to go out because mah mah said there is a lot of mosquitoes outside and they carry virus! I don't know what is that, but I miss looking at the sky and the leaves!

I miss my HOME!

Mama said all these have to go...... including me -___-"


Papa and Mama took one last glance at our paradise home and off we go!!


After the boat ride, I got to this place Uncle Harrick told me as the mainland? What is mainland?


Papa started driving and I didn't like the journey so much and I started to cry. Papa, Mama and Uncle Harrick all had to sing my favourite song - Old MacDonald Had a Farm for 3 hours to calm me down and put me to sleep. Mama thinks I am having jetlagged and I just feel very different. Maybe I am starting to miss the beach and the breeze.

On the brighter side, Jiu Jiu is throwing a big homecoming party for me, I am really excited and looking forward. I miss playing with Kong Kong and Po Po too.
See you guys soooon!!!
