Braedyn has finally decided to call me “MA-Ma” (he stresses the 1st MA hence the uppercase) after months of calling me “Gar-Gar”. It’s a wonderful feeling.

Have to thank daddykhong for catching Braedyn saying his 1st “Ma” and then getting him to repeat it every now and then. Most unfortunately for daddy, his “Ba-Bas” have all but disappeared. What normally happens is this. Daddykhong will point to me and ask, “Who’s this?” and Braedyn will say “MA-Ma”. Then I will point to daddykhong and ask Braedyn the same question and he replies, “MA-Ma”! Sometimes he will say “MA-Ba”!! *piak on the head*

Birthday bash!!!

Just a short update from me because a lot of mummy bloggers out there have already posted their 2 cents on Ashley, Kylie, Fearles & Cruz’s mega birthday bash which was held at Burger King, Mutiara Damansara last Saturday.

We arrived at 4:30 pm thinking we were the latest. Stupid Burger King, never can find parking on weekends so we had to circle Petronas twice before deciding to park behind the restaurant in the drive-thru lane.

Went to meet the hostesses first:- Laundryamah, AnnieQ and Mummy to Chumsy to pass them their gifts. Actually wanted to eat first but must be polite and meet the people who invited us, right or not? 🙂 I have met Laundryamah and AnnieQ before but it’s my first time meeting Barbara (Mummy to Chumsy). Barbara gave Shayanne a prezzie too….(thank you so much, Barbara, very thoughtful of you even though we have never met before). Now that I mentioned it here, everyone else will be expecting a prezzie from you too!!

Photos below were courtesy from a very good photographer, Shannon:-


Braedyn in Burger King’s playroom. Braedyn’s probably thinking……must get away from that red-haired Uncle Ronald next door.

For those who don’t know Khongfamily….tada…here they are:- daddykhong, mummykhong, Braedyn & Shayanne. If you are all thinking that Braedyn got his “fatty” genes from his papa, you’re all wrong.

Sorry, we couldn’t even catch up with everyone there….too many parents and kids around. I only managed to meet up with:-

  • Angeleyes (sorry ahhh…didn’t manage to really have a chit chat session with you)
  • Allyfeel (even though first time meeting you, we talked like old friends horrr)
  • Sasha (everytime sms…and finally get to meet you in person. One word, you are very ‘leng lui’! 😀 Daddykhong says you look like the HVD film star. He’s certain you are related to her.)
  • Mott (finally get the chance to meet you in person)
  • Tracy (nice meeting you too)
  • Jazzmint (saw you busy taking photos….)
  • Shannon (thank you so much for the photos you have taken..very nice! And your little princess is very very cute! 🙂 )
  • Sue (nice meeting you too)
  • Little Luke Skywalker (we sat so near to each other but didn’t manage to talk, nice meeting you guys)
  • Angeline (nice meeting you too)

And to those whom I didn’t have chance to say hi…..very very sorry ahh!

(Daddykhong says…..were there that many people? I was more interested in our Shah Rukh Khan! Who thought his jokes were lame, put your hands up?)

Dining area

Braedyn making full use of the play area

We visited Caterpillar a couple of weeks back. Surprisingly, for a centre/cafe that focuses on children, it is located on the 2nd floor with no lift facility. The both of us (daddykhong with Shayanne in her car carrier + backpack containing baby stuff and myself with 12.5 kg of Braedyn) crawled S-L-O-W-L-Y up the stairs. Phew……..good for my spare tyre!

As we arrived close to closing time at 4pm, there was nobody left. The owners, Sania and Ann, fetted over us like doting mothers. They provide homemade food without MSG. Apparently, EVERYTHING is made from scratch including the burger patties. Daddykhong, being cheeky as usual, upon hearing that then asked them whether the sausages are also made from scratch to which they sheepishly replied, “No, but it is made by a sausage manufacturer using OUR recipe!” OK lah, they win.

We ordered a lot of food to stuff our hungry stomachs. We ordered homemade chicken nuggets for Brae but they ended up in our tummies as he had no appetite due to his mild fever. He was also distracted by the toys in the play area.

There are classes for kids and adults such as; playgroups, art and craft, dance and English language classes for Japanese as well. They also provide child care services if you enrol in their classes for a minimal fee of RM10.

This cafe is a nice place to have a cup of tea and chit-chat when the classes are over but not my cup of tea for a full-blown meal. Prices are reasonable though.

If you’re happy…

Daddykhong is always up to no good when left alone together with the children. I was in the shower when he recorded this video (1 hand supporting Shayanne and the other with the camera).

Sleeping with mei-mei

Here’s a picture of how our 2 kids sleep on our bed. Braedyn will only fall asleep if he can be next to Shayanne holding onto her. Sometimes its her arm, other times its her leg.

Braedyn is sick – Updates

What a terrible past 7 days it has been. We brought Braedyn back to the Dr’s 3 days after the 1st visit because the diahorrea hasn’t improved, and also due to the fact that we wanted the Dr to see him before the 2 day extended Labour Day break.

The Dr took Braedyn off his infant formula replacing it with a lactose-free formula (very kind of him to give us 2 sample cans of Similac so we didn’t have to worry about getting some ourselves). He also prescribed a cream for Braedyn’s sore hind quarters which is due to his body not being able to absorb the lactose, resulting in the leftover lactose (lactic acid perhaps….it has been along time I picked up my Biology text) burning his genital area after each passing.

It was only today that the diahorrea improved significantly with no mid-night nappy changes required. Daddykhong has been a dream the past 7 days, automatically waking up to sniff at Brae’s backside every 2 hours or so (very much like a dog!) and then proceeding to change the nappy, apply cream, etc.. if required. He keeps count of the changes which averaged 9 a day. (daddykhong: it was getting so routine I felt like a robot)

However, Braedyn now has a hoarse voice (very husky and extremely sexy) from his crying. Good in a way because it means his cries are no longer ear-splitting. He’s back on his normal food today after days of drinking formula and nibbling on bread and whatever we were eating.

Shayanne has been a joy the past week, smiling every once in a while and cooing to herself whenever kor-kor has a changing session. She’s growing up fast.
