Aden goes to school

 Today is the 6th day since Aden started preschool.

 Photo taken during day 1, 8am, yes pity him, still looking very sleepy and moody :p

 I accompanied him for 15 minutes, he seems a bit scared in the beginning but when teacher approached with toys, he seems ok... I let him played and secretly left the school. Of course days before the actual day, I kept telling him about the good sides of school, let him 'prepared'. And after getting opinions from other mummies, I reassured him that I will be back to fetch him and if he's a good boy, he'll be rewarded.

 Like a meal at McD ;)


When I fetched him at school, I saw him running out with teary eyes. According to the teacher, he cried on and off when he realized I was gone. But overall he was ok.
Second day onwards, he seems to realize what's going on and until today, whenever I woke him up and got him ready, he will cry badly saying 'don't want'. Because of the tantrums, we were late to school these few days (but I guess it's ok since I realize many parents also are late).
Luckily, Aden follows me to the car even though he is crying.....And according to the teacher, he stopped crying when I left.

At first, I felt bad cause seeing him crying so badly, and he caught the cough bug and is still coughing now (but getting better). I thought may be he wasn't ready yet? And I think toddler like him will take even longer to adapt cause he's with me all the time since birth, thus he is super clingy to me.

But after getting opinions from other parents, I felt slightly relief, most of their kids cry too and it takes times, so I decided to give another week to see how is he doing.


Some say it's too early to send him to school. I thought of that before but then, if I let him stay at home, all he'll be doing is making mess, or playing iPad.
I want him to learn to be more disciplined/independent and also able to talk properly, most importantly I want him to mix with kids.

I really hope he can adapt to school soon!

  1. oh, Aden quietly went to school 6 days ago, hehe, actually not quietly lah, just that the Mommy was too busy to report that to all the aunties and uncles here only.. eih.. he looks cute in that uniform leh, white and bright orange, so sharp.. and oh, his 都敏俊 hairstyle (but short version lah) makes him look so cute also leh, haha!!

    of course you would want to be there on the first few days lah.. see, he was playing alone while the other boy was playing with himself too.. at least Aden was willing to put on his uniform, but his classmate was just wearing his home baju only woh.. at least i guess Aden actually knows that he is going to school already, and he has the responsibility to wake up early, put on the uniform, eat breakfast and then hop onto the car and go to school..

    errr, slowly lah, Aden is just 3 and he has been with you 24x7 all the time and suddenly he has to go to school and not seeing your for a few hours, he need to get used to it, and so do you need to get used to him not by your side too.. anyway, this is going to happen eventually, just the timing only.. sooner, Aden will love going to school because he will have friends to play with.. and you will then 專心安胎 already lah.. :)

    hehehe, i guess all the parents are doing all that they can to make their kids go to school huh?? and you are right, rather that letting Aden stay at home playing with iPad and making a mess everywhere all day long, good to send him to school so that he can learn to be independent and also to mix with other kids, that's important.. else, he will think that there are only you and him and daddy in this world only, hahaha.. :D

    well well well, i guess so far so good now?? Aden is slowly getting used to schooling days and one day he will be enjoying it.. and you, waiting for the baby to come to this world soon :)

  9. You are sending him to school for the right reasons, so it is good.
    Hahaha my first kindie was on the same row as my house, within 1 minute walking distance. The first day my grandma accompanied me and watched me from the outside for the whole 4 hours session. Then the second day she tried to leave and I cried and cried and cried until the teacher went to fetch my grandma back. I think I cried for 2 weeks before I adapted. XD

  13. Crying is normal for 1st timer and will be ok after 1 or 2 weeks. But if he continue crying, must find out the reason as Sam experienced that before and we get her changed another taska then she ok already :P

  14. Aiyo, Aden looks so adorable in his school uniform! Some more got wear a tie. Auntie PH cannot tahan liao want to give him a big hug LOL! Quite normal for kids to cry when they first start school and be away from mummy. He will get used to it lah.

    1. Okok, I will give him a big hug on behalf :p

  15. Wow, Aden is a big boy now!
    It's common to see children cry when separate from their mum for the first time. I often see that happening when I help out at crèche. As Aden will stop crying and start playing with other children is a good sign. Keep encouraging him and give him praise and reassurance that you'll come pick him up when school is done. Jia you!

    1. Yes I did, keep on telling him the good sides of school.
      Thanks.

  16. I kinda find parents like to give a lot of opinions, so while to listen to them, you have to decide what to take in and what to follow your instincts.

    My husband's niece goes to school at 3 years old and now there are play school for really small toddler in KL too so I don't think its too young. Just give little Aden some time! :)

  17. wow, Aden is already ready for preschool. He will like it as days go by. Don't worry.

  18. No worries..I sent my daughter to school when she was 2. yes, she did cry every morning but still, she willing to go to school except after a long break. It's just a short while and she grew to be confident as times goes by. Now, she's the 'tai kar chey' there! hahaha...

    1. She even lead her class during performance in school in her later kindy years maybe she knew she joined earlier than everybody. hahah.. She also performed a song at the school concert. Thus, Im glad I made the decision to send her early. Of course, during then, her bro was in the kindy too which was not so bad.

    2. Somehow girls adapt better and faster than boys!
      Glad to know that your girl is doing well!

  19. What I dislike about sending young kids to school is they get unwell often. And with your number 2 popping soon, it will be tough if Aden falls sick. But lets be positive and hopes his immunity is strong and he'll stay healthy and happy there :)

    1. Yes that's what I worry the most, so now must feed him well and strong!

  20. Cry.. maybe nothing can distract his attention, and Aden shy boy too.. if my daughter, i m sure she won't cry, I worry she will bully others instead..

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree with the comment that you are sending Aden to school for all the right reasons. Aden is going to be 3 years old soon and kindies start taking in children from 3 years old onwards so I guess it would work out. All the best to Aden!

    ReplyDelete
  22. He gets to mingle with other kids, so school should be fun for him, right? :)

    1. Hehe, that's what most of us think!

  23. Once he has friends he would be happy in school.

  24. Your story of Aden going to school make me think of April's first time to kiddie.

    I sent her to school when she was only 2. She cried of course. Then, i stopped, i sent again after a few months. She cried too, but getting better....

    So, every one story is about the same. I can see that Aden is adapting well. You stay easy. Don't sweat when seeing him crying. It is normal. Don't scold or beat him. Just ignore him like treating small matter. Hehehehe! I know say is easy than done. I just speaking from an experienced mother's point of view.

    Falling sick too very common especially when he is exposing to many small kids and different environment. His immune system will get better after a while.

    1. Yes he's making progress. Oh I know, I just let him cry then I leave, haha (so bad).

      That's what I am worrying the most, not good to see him sick but then, hmm, guess I just need to make him stronger....

  25. I like to look at Aden's photos. Somehow his chubby face and pose looks a bit like me somewhere as a kid but Aden is more handsome of course.
    I could remember climbing the window grills before 3 years old, crying at my parents for driving out without me! LOL

  26. my nephew and niece enjoy going to school though... hahaha..

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

近期的我们

Aden: 各位阿姨叔叔好啊!=)


最近实在忙,几乎一个星期才能生一篇文,有时两个星期呢 =_="
早上都在忙家务忙孩子和载大宝上学。  下午得哄小宝睡午觉~ 还要兼顾我的网卖生意。 不过最近的他好像不爱睡午觉了耶!如果他没睡我就更不得空了!得陪他玩~  话说玩不到一下下就得出门载Aden回家了~~ 每个星期的两个傍晚我都会上tabata课,一下课就回家继续当‘佣人’ xD
晚上就是陪/教Aden做功课,有时间的话就看看AOD的香港连续剧(话说最近的连续剧都不好看!)  过后就要给孩子们睡觉啦!  每天大概就是这样过,几乎都在做同样的事,都是围绕着家庭和孩子。  不过忙归忙,累归累,我觉得都是值得的啦!  当了全职妈妈5年,没后悔过 ^^

 近两个星期的天气都很糟~ 想不到可以去哪个游泳池(之前去到酒店游泳池已经不开放给外人了 T_T),所以干脆在家玩玩水就好~ 还好这几天开始有下雨了,要不然真的要发热气了!

 上周末大宝的幼儿园老师举办动物园半日游,我第一时间报名 :p (当然是先问Aden意愿啦) 虽然上学半年多了,很多时候他还是比较内向/慢热。这次就让他和老师朋友出外郊游。原本想和他一起去,还好我没有!想说借这机会让他独立独立 =)

 老师拍的照片~  看了都感觉很热很热对吧?  一说到动物园,我第一形象就是热!xD

 小朋友们都在找什么啊??
 去载他的时候都没什么,老师也没有complain xD  问他开心吗,他说开心,看到很多动物,还说谁谁谁跌倒,谁谁谁的妈妈有去等等~  看来是很enjoy啦!


 我虽然很累很想休息,不过周末傍晚如果天气好,我都会尽量带他们出外玩玩~  要不然呆在家也是看ipad玩玩具而已~

 久久晒一下夫妻两的照片 :p  我们还是一样,无穿无烂 :p 只是最近的他晒黑了很多!没办法啦!太阳公公太热情了,而老公也得出外做工养活啊~ (
辛苦你了老公) 话说我好像很少在这里提起我家abang的ho?哈哈!
不知不觉都认识了14年,当夫妻已有8年。  两公婆开心的时候有,不开心的时候也不少呵呵~  不过这也算正常吧?毕竟要两个不同背景的人要走在一起组织一个家庭不容易,难免会有意见不合争吵什么的~  我觉得最重要还是要互相体谅和多沟通啦!这样才能长久~ right? =)

 从早忙到晚的我,真的很需要好好保养和调理身体~  感恩我遇见…
