So proud of Liam

The source of pride is not this pineapple artπŸ˜‚ Scroll further down….


I don’t know about other mums but for me the first 2 weeks with Lily I wasn’t genuinely in love with her. Probably the pain and exhaustion or hormones, who knows. I intellectually knew she’s my daughter and I had to nurture and feed her so I did just that. But now, I can say I really, truly love and adore her and I cannot imagine a life without her 😍

She’s looking like Liam everyday albeit with a shorter face and more almond-shaped eyes…I reckon she gonna look JUST LIKE ME muahahaha.

Eeek gross armpit folds but too lazy to edit whatever.


Family outing to 1U today for dinner. Used the nursing room at Isetan and was quite shocked at the state of it. So dusty and the chair was damn uncomfortable…like the cushion was hollowed out and the frame was creaky πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Thing was I don’t remember it being bad and then I realised it was almost 4 years ago when I last used it and they probably haven’t maintained the rooms properly. Did not expect this from Isetan to be honest.


Now, the reason why I am so proud of Liam. This! You see, Liam is quite a gentle boy who didn’t learn to use the slide until he’s 3 years old. He still cannot use the swings let alone a seesaw. Truth is my son just isn’t very physical.

So when he was so insistent on playing this hand paddle boat I was like, yeah sure…you gonna cry the moment I place you inside the boat πŸ™„

We kept trying to talk him out of it and even more so when we discovered that every game in the fair was actually designed for 5-12 year olds. Liam is 3.5 yr old 😣

But the fella just wouldn’t budge and I had to sheepishly tell the girl at the registration counter that I was willing to subject my kid to whatever risks despite his age and signed the indemnity form, otherwise we wouldn’t be going home πŸ™ˆ The girl also closed one eye and let us through.

So moment of truth…I was prepared for tears and wasted time but guess what, when it was his turn to get onto the boat, it was as if he’s a different boy. He shook off his sandals, climbed up the pool wall and literally jumped into the boat. No tears. Just excitement!

I was shocked, this a kid that cried murder once upon a time when a mall ride started to move cause I put coin into it πŸ˜‚

He started cranking the levers. The boat moved and he was unperturbed. He laughed when older kids bumped him. He tried to touch the water with his bare hands, tilting the boat so much the attendant had to get him to sit back in the middle of the boat. I was proud mama (but had to pretend to tell him to be careful πŸ˜‹). Can see him in action on my igstory.

So yeah, this is why I am so proud of my boy! He has finally stopped being a paranoid Ah Soh.

    And I felt the same like you about Lily when I had Han home for the first few weeks… I didn’t feel the bursting love that I thought I should/ would have… guess you are not alone… 😊
