The personalized keychain was a present from baby Si (with a pic of her n daddy) but the best present came from mummy!!! SURPRISE!!! Surprised daddy with the pic below on Father's Day :) daddy aka mr. Hubby was speechless... Thought he would be a pro by now... But still managed to make his speechless 2nd time round...

I'm sure many of our fb friends already knew about it as mr. Hubby just made it official and revealed this "secret" once I hit the mark and past the unstable period :)

Dear mr. Hubby aka daddy Si,

Baby’s Day Out 2013 – My First National Day Party

Baby Si had the privilege to attend her First Baby’s Singapore National Day Party which was held on 3 August, Saturday from 5.00pm – 8.30pm (Registration started at 4.30pm) at The Lawn @ Marina Bay. This event was organized by NTUC, U Family. Mummy got free tickets :) daddy was hesitant at first as he thought he won't be involved in any of it and plus daddy is not Singaporean (so is mummy n baby Si :p...) but mummy had the chance to participate in a Simultaneous Mass Breastfeeding activity (in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week). Whereas baby Si had lots of her "friends", activities and goodie bags all lined up for her...each family was given a goodie bag which consisted of diapers, snacks, foldable picnic mat, hand held fans and disposable rain coats (in case it rain). Very considerate and useful... The weather turned out perfect...not too hot, not too humid, windy and it didn't rain.
Each family was also given 10 activity coupons (1 per activity) for the fringe activities available. Daddy was excited as he got to play lots of activities with baby Si.

This was mummy and baby Si's first time participating in a Simultaneous Mass Breastfeeding activity. Participants (Breastfeeding Mummies only) was given a wrist tag for identification. And we got to sit in a VIP area, designated area on the lawn for the breastfeeding activity. The Simultaneous Mass Breastfeeding activity commenced at 5.30pm. Participants was asked to latch-on their babies for 1 minute with the signal from the emcee. After the activity, participants may proceed to the registration area to redeem their gift with the wrist tag for identification.

Mr. Hubby and me both agreed that this event was wonderfully organized to keep everybody engaged all throughout. It was reported that it was the biggest baby bash yet, which saw a record participation of more than 5,000 parents and babies. In conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week and in line with U Family’s advocacy on stronger support for breastfeeding mothers, a Simultaneous Mass Breastfeeding activity was participated by 250 mothers.

There was a musical performance, fringe activities galore, fun stage games, Baby Race and National Day Mass sing-along to entertain and engage the toddlers, babies and parents.

Daddy aka mr. Hubby was not being left out at all...as he was one of the 3 chosen ones to be invited to be part of a Stage game called"I Speak Baby-Talk!".... Basically they played a recorded baby "talking" and the contestants have to decode it. The fastest one with the correct answer wins a point. It wasn't easy but Daddy won 2nd place! Yeayyy... Products worth $350 sponsored by Philips...

It was indeed a fun filled family day! Can't wait to attend next year... :)

Here's our monthly family tradition of taking Polaroid pics.
Hopefully baby Si pics will cheer up ur day!!! It did cheer us up when snapping these pics... :)

Milestones reached:
.helping with doing the laundry...
when baby Si was 14 months, I told daddy aka mr. Hubby that baby Si willingly helped mummy do the entire laundry but daddy didn't quite believe it...so one day daddy happened to be home but unfortunately mummy was doing the "adult" laundry so baby Si couldn't really help as it was too heavy! But just a few days ago, daddy witnessed baby Si helping with the entire laundry as mummy did baby's laundry... Daddy can now sit back n relax as mummy has a new helper!!! Yeay to mummy's new cute lil' helper!!!

Better watch out for child protection services knocking on our doors :p

All about daddy aka mr.hubby!

Okay, this post will be all about baby Si's daddy aka mr. Hubby!

Congratulations on your graduation in obtaining your MBA at NTU (nanyang technology university) business school, Singapore... Class of 2013. One of the top 25 MBA Universities in the world!!!

We are so proud of u...
Being able to work full time and take classes part time. All these were done in the midst of moving into our first apartment (where we built a HOME), numerous business and leisure trips all around the world with wifey, created a family with the arrival of baby Si, changed positions in your job with Cummins, changed jobs to a new company (after 10 years of being loyal to Cummins), etc...

Just a few days after mr. hubby's graduation, me n mr hubby were talking and came to realization that all these just fell into its own place, at the right time. From choosing and picking the right uni (being offered a few), choosing between Masters and MBA, etc...We counted our blessings and God's guidance in getting to where mr. Hubby is today. Coz if it was a different decision, things would turned out differently. We believe God has helped us make the best choice.

"God opens doors (where no men can shut) and closes the doors (where no men can open)!!!"

Oh and the graduation turned out to be an event where baby Si was able to sit in... Coz we initially thought that we could not enter the auditorium as it was clearly stated on the invite that children below 6yrs old was not allowed in. And mummy thought we would have to miss it and sit outside to watch it on the big screen TV. Thankfully uncle niño was adamant and smooth talked his way to get us in promising that we would head out as soon as baby Si makes any noise. But guess what? Baby Si sat through the whole convocation like a trooper! Uncle niño made more noise than baby Si!!! Thanks uncle niño for being the photographer and manny for the day!!!
U made karthik's day...(from his gummy smile in all your lovely pics)

The convocation ended with a party where food and wine were served, speeches and awards were given and more photos taken...
