...tsug's first day at his new school

...was a sucess! i couldn't believe how well behaved he was.. as the owner said 'not a single tear'.. i guess medyo sanay na rin sya dahil nga meh school sya sa singapore.. he just went in and started playing with the toys and the other kids.. he was really enjoying himself with the singing of songs, the dancing.. i guess it's more fun dancing with kids his age than with an oldie like his mommy hehe.

my presence in the classroom was even a distraction for him.. because everytime he sees me seated at the corner, he would go out of the circle and go to me.. but once his teachers call him, he joins them again.. what surprised me was him following the instructions of the teachers.. commands like 'put your card on the bulletin board' (every student puts his picture on the board, parang attendance), 'sit on your mat', or 'line up with your classmates'.. na-amaze talaga ako ehehe. (bakit saken hindi sya ganong masunurin!?? lol!).. pati nga yung 'taste this'.. (kasi different tastes ang lesson for the day.. ) he really ate the green mango! lol! (katawa lang itsura after) tsug also impressed his teachers because he can easily solve puzzles, he knows his colors (sya nga lang yugn sumisigaw sa teacher pag tinatanong 'what color is this?'), letters and numbers!

we also enrolled tsug in gymboree (hectic ang sched ni tsug! lol).. this time, it's just once a week, every saturday.

Friday, July 02, 2010 parents' "vacation"

in quotes cause it was more like mine.. they came here to help me out with tsug, and boy, have they really helped. some mornings i have been able to sleep til i felt the first signs of hunger.. this was usually around 10:30am.. we didn't go out that much, mostly just around our block (we have a mall, a wet market, hawker centers around us).. was able to watch Eclipse with my mom though! so happy! there's a cinema near us too, it's a bit dingy but one can't be too choosy when you've only got a few hours to spare :).. (at least the lights were off this time when we entered, weren't able to focus on the dirty upholstery hehe)

we did go to Universal studios and Bintan resorts, (with newlyweds tenten and rommel).. it was our first time to go to USS.. there was a LOT of people, so the Express Pass was sooo worth it. as you walk through the express pass lane, you could feel the questioning eyes of the people on the queue like they were saying 'why the hell aren't they lining up?' LOL.

we didn't take much pictures.. but i do love our picture with shrek!

there wasn't much toddler friendly rides (unlike in HK disneyland) but tsug was able to ride these.. and for some reason, tsug didn't want to ride the carousel! so they just sat on those chairs in the carousel like some uncles lol.

syempre pasaway ako.. the perks of having a small tummy when pregnant, no one would DARE ask me if i was hehe. i of course, let raymond try it first, and when he said it was pretty easy, nothing too bumpy, i was thrilled to be able to have a go.. i did feel a bit scared when the ride started hehe.. but it was so fast, the ride was over before the nerves got to you.

At Bintan, it was my.. 3rd time(i think) to go.. tsugtsug's 2nd, and my father's first! we ate, swam, bowled and played table tennis.. and slept. we slept too during tsug's nap time..

i learned a thing or two during tsug's swimming lessons.. the bubbles thingie and dunking him in the water.. my friend (the coach) just told me to not be scared (i was soooo scared the first time she dunked tsugtsug's head underwater) and she's absolutely right.. tsug's first instinct was to blow bubbles and to not swallow the water.
