A boy who loves water

I remember Aden's first experience in the pool, he is about 6 months old back then. I bought an inflatable pool online and made use of it a few times, at our car porch. 

That purchase I made comes with a neck float, some rubber ducks and an electric pump (well this is not important to know la xD)
Daddy went into the pool during the first time cause mummy din't want to get wet wanted to take photos since it was Aden's first dip in the pool, something memorable ;)

He was a little bit frighten during the beginning but eventually like it.

Then I bought a proper float and swim suit for him and let him enjoy his swim by himself!
Though swimming at home can be fun but this inflatable pool got its cons also la! It takes time to fill up the pool with water, and it requires a lot of water and the water became a waste at the end.... 
Soon I brought him to the swimming pool nearby my house and ever since then, we go to this pool quite frequently.

I am glad that Aden isn't a child who is afraid of water. I know a friend's son who is about 3 now and he is still refuse to go into the pool, even if the parents are there.

Just last Wednesday we went for a quick evening swim again. Suppose have to pay RM 10 for adult (it's a hotel by the way) but since nobody notice our presence so I just act nothing xDD

I chose to go on weekdays cause we can occupy the place by ourselves! 

Trying to blow bubbles but Aden wasn't ready yet, so let's try again................

Ahah succeeded! :p
Very difficult to take proper selfie with wet hands, but am glad I managed to take a few shots in the end without dropping my phone into the pool.


Guess who took this? :p

I realize Aden looks like a Korean celebrity here but I can't recall who, haha!

My favorite picture of the day! My face is so slim and Aden is so excited here! I love his expression!
I think you can tell how much Aden loves dipping in the water! 

Swimming is the best possible exercise. It works all the body's muscles and burns the most calories. And learning to swim is an ability, like walking, it's part of growing up.
Looking forward to the next swimming session, hopefully hubby is free to join~

  2. I was a very sickly child and saw doctors almost every week until my mum waved white flags. Finally a doctor suggested that I should go for proper swimming lessons at 7 years old to build up my lungs. Later years I hardly have cough & colds now. Swimming is really good!

  15. I love the baby photos, so cute lah! It is good that Aden can swim at such a young age.

    ReplyDelete
  16. ah.. actually it's good to train the kids to swim while they are still babies.. i always heard babies are actually born to know how to swim in the womb, so they naturally knows how to swim, just that as they grow and are not put into such environment, the skills are already forgotten.. so, it's great that Aden actually loves swimming leh~~

    1. you are true.. actually not so wise to have that inflated baby pool at home, very very waste water leh.. so where is that thing now?? keep inside the store room, or given to your relatives?? or maybe use that as mat somewhere?? hahaa~~ so go to the proper swimming pool better lah, since you can actually sneak in without people notice.. actually you can pretend yourself as guest of the hotel mah, just look calm and don't freak so they won't be suspicious.. :D

      Delete
    2. wah, happening lah.. like that also can selfie in the swimming pool.. hmmm, i wonder if you have the protective water-resistant case for your phone ah?? i definitely won't bring my phone near the water at all, not to mention in the pool using it to selfie, haha!!

      Delete
    3. i like the photos, you both looked so happy and jovial lah.. and Aden really 深得真傳 lor, he can take good photos and also selfie very well lah, hahaha!! i love the last photo also, Aden looks so cute and happy!! haha.. and actually comparing the photos hor, Aden slims down already ah?? because his cheeks were like more puffy when he was younger leh, now the cheeks are more flat already woh, haha.. wonder the next time Uncle SK sees him, still can cubit or not?? :D

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

The unwelcomed birthday presents

(Note: Quite a long post, I skipped my afternoon nap to write this so please read everything ya!! xDD)


Past 2 weeks were really exhausting for me.

It all started on 20th April when Aden developed a mild fever, he was tired and sleepy, I let him skipped school for 2 days.

He seldom takes afternoon nap, when he does, it means he is not feeling well :(

The next day, it was Toby's turn😢
Poor boy, his temperature reached 39° and it was on and off~
Then I notice he started to have these cute double eyelids for a few days~ Haha not sure why~
He was feeling really unwell, very lethargic, no appetite and super duper clingy to me!

Then both brothers started to cough badly 😢😢 
So on the 25th, I brought them to the pediatrician again.  He examined both boys and suspected it could be pneumonia and even dengue (because their fever were on and off). Suggested to get admitted right away.
I wasn't sure if that's necessary because I knew once admitted, have to stay for at least 5 days (h…
