Tristan at 10 months

Ok, finally has some time to write about Tristan ... We managed to bring him for hair cut today, it was a disaster, after we went in to the shop for a while, his eye became red, seems like he can recall what happened to him last time, I sure hope this is not true because I won't want him to have resistance the next time we go there. Anyway, we always ended up with a short but "only ok"so called hairstyle, and just like the previous time, the grandpa & grandma both commented that it should be shorter etc.

Tristan learned to clap hands (without sound, left hand is closed and right hand open), when he's happy, such as hearing a nice baby song, or enjoying his food. He also has some little tricks that he invented, such as rubbing the back of his hand against his mouth left -> right -> left -> right over and over again with a "ba-ba-ba" sound, so whenever we want him to do this we would do it first with the "ba-ba-ba" and he will follow suit if he's in good mood.

He can crawl fast now, he used to refuse crawling, but I guess it was because we limit him to his little corner only, we prohibited him from crawling to the carpet, the area he's most interested, when we set him free later on, he started to crawl to every corner in the house now.

He also able to stand up with support, and has managed to climb up stairs. Whatever comes his way would go into his mouth, just like any other babies.

One thing that gives me headache is he's going to bed very late now, it's between 10.30pm - 11.15pm, he's tired but just keep going and going, refuse to be rock, just keep playing until he's exhausted, like an energizer bunny.

That's all from me about baby, it's time for me to go to bed, good night everyone :)

Tristan with Sun Glass

This sunglass was the biggest we could find in the shop ... his head measurement is really big, so ended up with this huge glass. He wore it for a short period of time only, now he would grab it and put into his mouth. I receive an email from my TAR College's coursemate, Lee Yu Fei, I told her I would write about Tristan tonight, but I'm very tired now, hopefully I'll get a chance to do it tomorrow. Oh, and Tristan turns 10 months today, still toothless though.

Found Adsense Tips, Online Selling, and Skype !

There's this adsense tips in the first Malaysia blogger's page, I don't have time to go into the details, but if you are interested, you may visit to check it out.

Also, if you are interested in online selling, then has some useful information as Jenny is a Power Seller in Ebay.

Oh .. and I just started using Skype last night, have seen my ex-roomate in US using a similar free internet call tool (but not sure what they used at that time because I wasn't interested), and I have been told for closed to 2 years that I can use Skype to call anywhere with no charge as long as the person I'm calling also login to Skype, but I was just too lazy to explore it.

I was so excited last night, because a relative and a friend from US both called me with Skype, the connection was so good, no delay at all, sound is loud and crystal clear, one of them have webcam installed so I can see him and his daughter quite clearly, that triggered me to start installing my webcam which has been sitting in the rack for a year now, I never knew that it's so much fun to do these.

If you already have a Skype account, do give me your id so that I can add you to my contact list, if you haven't, go to to download the program and set it up, saving money on the other hand is earning money :)

Happy B'day Tat Oon :)

Wanted to write something for you but was running out of time ... Think we have known each other for close to 20 years now ? Wow ... thinking of this is scary ... how did we spend the 20 years with just a blink of eyes ?

We had great time in Form 6, those are sweet memory, I still remember we sang together in one ocassion, the "Ni Zhi Dao Wo Zai Deng Ni Ma". I'm so glad that we still stay in touch, I have lost touch with so many old friends now ...

Hope you have a wonderful time today :)

Waimea Bay

Waimea Beach, in Honolulu. Taken back in Sept 2003, during our honeymoon trip. We drove around the island to check out a few beaches recommended by a book, the water here is great, but the beach itself is not so much different from other beaches so we just stopped to take a few pictures and move on.

Niagara Falls

This was my second visit, still, the falls are just so overwhelming ... touched my soul deeply. This is on the US's side, if I have another chance to visit this falls, I would go to the Canadian side, heard that the view is wider from there.

Peanut is here !

Peanut is the Golden Retriever selected by my husband, He's a Champion breed, almost everyone who visited us like Peanut more than Winter, everyone would try to touch or play with Peanut, especially kids. Golden Retriever is very suitable for family & kids, Tristan would grab and pull his mouth, one time even poked close to his eye but he never complaint, instead he just quietly enjoying the moment. Peanut will turn 2 years old in May.

For Kathy

Tristan at 8 months. Our Camera's memory stick was full and no one has time to download to the laptop, then the battery ran out, so we didn't take picture for him for close to 2 months already. This one was taken after a haircut, just like other babies, he doesn't like to be touched by the head, so he cried out loud, now the hair is long again, got to get ready for the next challenge soon ;o)

My German Shepherd

I bought Winter in 2004, when he was 2-months old, he grew very fast, became adult size in about 11 months. He's very smart, but pampered, even now. He loves to play games with my husband, I used to play with him ocassionally, but now I'm exhausted after baby-sitting, it's very rare that I still have energy to play with him. Ocassionaly I'll cut his nails, or take bath for him once in a blue moon when my husband is not able to do so. I have another Golden Retriever which I haven't found his pix yet, he's slightly younger, by about 5 months. I wish I have more time & space to rare a few more dogs, such as St. Bernard, Great Dane etc. Grandma has a Chihuahua, that's her favourite.

Tristan is now 9 months plus, very lazy to crawl, still toothless, loves to play with our dogs but prohibited from doing that most of the time, he's only allowed to touch them occasionally.

Below is a photo taken when he was arround 6 months old, right before Christmas last year.

After Delivery

This is me, taken at arround 4 months after delivery, some of you have already seen me.

After delivery, time become fast forwarding to me, in a blink of eyes, it's already passed the first quarter of the year, and I know that soon Christmas will be arriving followed by another new year and I would regret not having to talk to most of you ... I'm so glad that I get to create this blog to get in touch with all of you, I don't want to waste anymore time.

Do put in comment so I know you were here, thanks :)

For Friends & Family

There was a friend of mine who loves to receive letters, we met at high schools and we started to write to each other back then because we were from different classes, and we both have to do part time work after school, so we don't have much time to hang out together, furthermore we really enjoy writing and receiving letters.

After high school we chose different path, she went to teaching and I went on to work in Petaling Jaya. We became busy with our own life and didn't write anymore. When we met again later on I promise to write her once a month, but I didn't keep my promise, now seems to be a good time to do that, by writing right here, in this space.

I'll try to write whenever I have a chance, for all my dear friends & family members.

Have a great weekend :)
