First Time : Kitkit cooks breakfast for the family


Since the beginning of this week, Kitkit had the thought of preparing breakfast for us during the weekends.
“Can I cook breakfast for all of you?”
The thought did not die off even though it had been quite a hectic week for him.
Yesterday, he said: “I must set alarm, so that I can wake up early to cook breakfast.”



This is the first time, I felt so comfortable with him doing everything in the kitchen on his own, while I enjoyed myself capturing his every move.
My 9-years-old….
How time flies…..



“Mummy, I need one more scoop.”
“Mummy, I want one more spatula.”
“Mummy, can you get some plates……”
My every answer to those question is “Get it yourself.”
With a smile on his face, he get them by himself….
*thumbs up*



It is very easy for Kitkit to fall back to his ‘lazy self’ and failed to realise that he is MORE CAPABLE than he thinks he is.
Since he initiated to prepare breakfast for us, he is in the PERFECT mood to step up to the challenge.
Thus, even though I rejected to help him, he was still all smiles.



“Mummy, I think Binbin and I can start our own Tiny Chef Restaurant.”
A few seconds later….
“Mummy, I think I should start writing out my menu.”





“Papa, give me a rating. Maximum 10.”
Allan: “I give 9, because I like my bread more chao-da (burnt).”
Binbin: “I give 7.”
Yet, Binbin ate the biggest portion of the fried eggs.




What made me even happier is he cleared up the mess he made around the stove area.
“Mummy, is it nice?”
“Mummy, its nice because its cooked by me?”
“But what if its NOT cooked by me, is it still nice?”
And we exchanged chuckles…..

Movies Watched from Jan to June’13


Now that my boys are older, their feedback after a movie is no longer just “Nice!” or “Funny!” or “Scary!”, they have more things to say.
So I thought of doing a recollection of the movies they have watched so far. Their comments after each show are sweet memories to me. I did not want to do a-movie-a-post, seemed too many, ‘cos we are such movie-goers now, ever since we found out that its so much more affordable to watch it in Malaysia.
With kids’ special rate and all, we usually spend RM44 or less for the 4 of us, which is less than S$20. This is weekday price, as we go over to Johor Bahru ONLY on Weekdays. Weekend rates will be higher.
Unless we choose to watch 3D, then we would end up paying a few RM more; which errrmmmmm, we hardly go for that option, ‘cos 3D gives me headache. So I will always say “NO” to 3D unless the showtimes for the ‘normal type’ could not fit into our schedule or when our preferred timing has no more seats available.

Needless to say, with a better exchange rate, the cost per ticket becomes even lesser. *wink*

1st Movie watched this year was Ah Boys To Men II.
The photo of my kids with the big poster was lost when my memory card collapsed during my trip to Vietnam. *sigh* I should have backup the photos sooner. We watched it way AFTER Singaporeans had because we waited for the ‘later‘ release in Malaysia.
KK: “Scary! Next time “I” need to go serve NS and do all these things.”
BB: “I like it when the wild boars were chasing the sergeant. At first so ‘hao-lian’ then later ‘act like girl’.”

2nd Movie in 2013 : The Impossible
KK: “I cannot watch this type of show, it makes me wanna cry!”
BB: “It was so gross when I saw the leg, because it split open.”

3rd Movie in 2013 : Iron Man 3
KK: “So Cool! The Iron Man got backup at the end. So many of them!”
BB: “To me, it feels very pain when the armour hits his ‘down-there’ (private part)….”

4th Movie in 2013 : Epic
KK: “Everything looks so cute because very small.”
BB: “I like the last part when they fight.”

5th Movie in 2013 : Man of Steel
KK: “I’ve got nothing to say.” (I think he was not very impressed)
BB: “Quite shocking when the camera moved very fast.”
After I took the photo below, I can’t help but said: “Alas! The 3 of you should have worn your ‘Superman T-shirt today!” It would be cool! Hhhmmm….or would it be too cheesy? *laugh* I don’t know. I just think it would be cute!

6th Movie in 2013 : MU ~ Monsters University
KK: “The pet of James Sullivan was very cute : The pig!”
BB: “I like “Squishy”! Feel like squeezing him! Very cute!!!!”

7th Movie in 2013 : Despicable Me 2
KK: “Wow! There are so many weapons.”
BB: “I think the Crispy Hat. I think its creative.”
This movie was watched in Singapore. Nope, we didn’t pay for it. It was a treat from my sister and BIL. They could not make it that day, but tickets were already purchased in advance. So they gave the tickets to us. Super nice of them! Thank you. *hugs* We intended to watch this movie on 5th July during our next trip into JB.


Now that this movie is checked from my list, then we will watch World War Z next. It has been in the cinema for some time now, hope it will still be showing this Friday. *fingers and toes crossed*
