The boys woke up at 11.30am yesterday! *laugh* All thanks to the intense late night activity.
The parents were just as tired. One parent decided to do an extraordinary thing on the 1st day of 2010….
Allan: “Keatkeat, we are very tired. Can you please go down and buy our lunch?”
Keatkeat: “HUH??!!! Alone?!! Don’t want! I’m very scared.”
Binbin: “Don’t be scared! I’ll go with you!”
Allan: “See? Binbin will go with you.”
Keatkeat: “Don’t want!!!”
Allan: “Hey, you are big brother you know? Binbin is not scared, why are you still scared?”
Then the training of how to order the food in Mandarin began. It was obvious that Keatkeat was NOT as excited as his little brother, hence the ‘training‘ took way too long. Keatkeat just refused to cannot remember the correct words. In the end, Allan turned towards Binbin, who was hyped up for the adventure.
Allan: “Say ‘yi-bao-ya-fan, jia-fan. Hai-you yi-bao-shao-rou-fan’.”
Binbin: “yi-bao-ya-fan, jia-fan. Hai-you yi-bao-shao-rou-fan.”
Allan: “Say again.”
Binbin: “Cannot remember.”
*faint* Yup! That’s so typical of Binbin. *giggle*
I whispered into Allan’s ear. “Are you joking or are you serious?”
Allan: “Of Cos Serious!”
I knew he meant it. I was pretty nervous. So I decided to go down with them (since Allan was tired).
But Binbin FLARED UP!!!
Binbin: “Don’t Want! I want to go down with Gorgor alone! You and Papa stay at home!”
My boys were completely in disagreement with each other even after MANY minutes of ‘persuasion‘ from Allan. I knew I had to ‘satisfy‘ both desires and so I said, “Ok, the two of you will go down alone. You two have to walk ‘that longer’ path. Less cars pass by. Papa and Mommy will walk the usual route to the coffeeshop. We will meet you there.”
Finally BOTH were excited!!! *giggle*
They set off first and we became P.I.!!! We were running and hiding behind walls and pillars. Just like the famous Japanese kids show. Where kids of age 4-6 goes to the market with a list of grocery to buy, all on their own; but little did they know that they were followed. It was super EXCITING for Allan and I! *laugh* I think we enjoyed it as much as my boys did!
Here’s the P.I. video. My phone’s video resolution was greatly discounted after zooming in at them from about 80m away.
Their first response when they saw us?
Binbin was GRINNING from cheek to cheek…..
and Keatkeat complained: “Papa, Binbin got Run!”
