Ming Ming's Diary – I'm a SNAB!

Ming Ming's Diary – I'm a SNAB!

Good morning!! It’s a wonderful morning! Everyone woke up nice and cheery after the commotion yesterday!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5937.png
Jie Jie declared that she was hungry so I gave up my pear purée (which was meant for my lunch) to her. Good brother I am!!

Look! I’m the SNAB in the house. You don’t know what’s SNAB?! Goodness gracious! Which mountain did you come from?? Shaolin??? Wu dang??? Emei???

Sensitive
New
Age
Baby

That’s moi.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5938.png

Now that all the females in the house are appeased and happy, it’s selfie time!!!

For the cover of the SNAB magazine. Look at my pensive expression, my sexy posture (off shoulder ok!) and well endowed physique (fat is IN,dude! Gosh! Some people can be so ignorant.).

I’m the boy that every girl wants to bring home to her mommy!

Ming Ming's Diary – How to Drink Water Like a Man!

Ming Ming's Diary – How to Drink Water Like a Man!

Good morning Everyone!! Have you missed me?? I couldn’t blog yesterday because my Mama was very sick yesterday.

Being a good son, I spent the whole of yesterday taking care of her and the house.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5903.png

I didn’t spit food on the floor, didn’t mess up the toys, didn’t lick the furniture yesterday! That’s how well I kept the house!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5904.png

So proud of myself!!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5905.png

Ok ok. Enough praises. Shy leh.

The topic for today is…. *drum roll*

How to drink WATER like a MAN!

Yes yes. Many of you are doing it wrongly. I see some people holding their mugs like this….

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5906.png

This is WINE drinking. Make no mistake about it! Please do not hold your water mugs like this!!! Especially with the lotus finger or people will mistake you for “east side no lose” 东方不败.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5907.png

Or some people hold it like that. NONONONO!!

The correct way is to…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5908.png

Hold your mug firmly with both your hands. So that you won’t spill any on yourself of the floor.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5909.png
Then you tilt your head back and drink!!!

YUM SENG!!!!!

Then you will be able to taste how sweet water is! Especially during a drought like this!! Don’t waste water!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5910.png

Hey! What’s that on the ceiling!?? Is it the darn mossie that feasted on me last week???

Oops sorry!!! Concentrate on your drinking Ming Ming! Bad example!!! 😡

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5911.png

Gulp gulp gulp

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5912.png

Hmmm… Is it stuck?? Shake shake shake. There’s still water in it.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5913.png

Ok folks, when this happens, according to my past experiences, you need to change your drinking position….

By…

Sitting on the floor!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5914.png

See! It works every time!!!

YUM SENG!!!!

That’s how you drink water like a man!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5856.png

Good morning good morning everyone! Welcome to the Celebrity Baby Chef show!

If Ming can cook, so can YOU!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5857.png

Now folks, the most basic thing that you need to know… Is… To turn on the stove!

Here! Let me demonstrate!

See! I’m so good at it that I can even do it behind my back!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5858.png

And now you need to find stuff to cook!

Lalalalala! Let me check out my stock in the cupboard.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5859.png

Hmmm…. *rummage rummage*

You know, an awesome cook like me can whip up gourmet food from ordinary ingredients…

Hang on… Let me see….

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5860.png

Wait a minute!! Who broke my tap???

Why is it hanging by its hinge??? Gosh! I need to do everything myself! You’d have thought that they would prepare everything before inviting the great Ming Ming to a cooking show?!

*roll eyes*

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5861.png

Ok fixed. Nothing can daunt me… Except… There’s nothing to cook!!!

C’mon! I’m a chef. Not a Harry Potter!!! I can create yummy dishes from any food stuff. But how do you expect me to cook something out of thin air?!

*waves my wand* foodalicious!!!
Hahahaha. See! It doesn’t work!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5862.png

Sigh…. I’ve to do my own grocery shopping. You can’t depend on hired help these days…..

I’ll be back!!!! Watch out for me at the next episode of ….

The Celebrity Baby Chef show – if Ming can cook, so can you!

See you next time!!!

Amped Trampoline Park – Bouncing Fun!

Amped Trampoline Park – Bouncing Fun!

I’ve been a “single mom” for the last 2 weekends. I was running out of ideas to bring the kids out to places where they can be tired out in the shortest possible time. (ko so that I can have an afternoon of peace). I was toying with the idea of going rock climbing but 小小宝贝 couldn’t take part in it as he’s too young. I vaguely remembered from Shimian’s blog that there’s a trampoline place in the east.

Easy peasey. Did a google on it and yes!!! They allow young children into the trampoline area as long as they are able to walk, under the supervision of a parent.

So Amped Trampoline Park it is! I tried to book slots online but wow! It was full on sat! This place is really popular! So I settled for Sun morning.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5893.jpg

And there’s free parking right beneath it!! Also a kopitiam on 1st floor. But it’s hard to starve in that area. It’s surrounded by good food.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5894.jpg

As instructed in the website we brought along socks. Socks are sold at $3 for forgetful people. I was tempted to buy a pair for myself. They are non slip socks. It’s hard to find non slip socks for preschoolers and adults.

The 2 宝贝s couldn’t wait to get started. It’s a chore to get 2 excited kids to pose beautifully. Sigh!

As soon as we went through the net, 宝贝 abandoned us and bounced around happily on her own…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5871.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5876.jpg

The next time I spotted her, she was drowning happily in the foam pit. I was so tempted to bounce around myself. But parental duties first. I had to shadow Mr 小小宝贝 around.

Initially he was upset that he couldn’t walk properly as everyone bounced around him and he lost his balance. He figured out that the easiest way to move around was to run along the adjoining blue strips. There he went!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5877.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5886.jpg

Then he got a little bolder and started venturing onto the black trampoline surfaces.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5870.jpg

Finally he couldn’t resist it and started jumping on it.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5883-0.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5884-0.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5885.jpg

There he was! Landing with finesse after a baby jump.

And surprise surprise! Guess who we met there! My brother!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5890.jpg

His first time there too!!

I was conked out after 40 mins of running after 小小宝贝. Meanwhile I only saw flashes of 宝贝 hopping around. She sure has good stamina.

Conclusion : instant success! 宝贝 is already asking when I’m bringing here there again. And she wants to go with Jiu Jiu who can teach her tricks as he used to be a gymnast.

Proof of result :

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5891.jpg

✌️Peace reigns! That’s why I’ve time to blog now!

We are 100% going again! Anyone wants to come along??!!

Hiya folks!!! It’s gym day again!! 💪💪💪

A fit Ming Ming is a healthy Ming Ming. A healthy Ming Ming is Mr Sunshine Ming!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5843.png

Watch me bounce on the giant bouncing ball! *giggle* Do you believe that I can bounce all the way to the moon???? Let me show you!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5844.png

Boing Boing Boing!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5845.png

Oopsy! This is tiring! *pant pant* all the way there and back. I’m going to try for Mars next. I’ll grab some Mars bars back for you!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5846.png

Hmm… I think it’s much faster to go on wheels then to continue bouncing on the ball.

Me drive??? No way!! I’m the boss!! Bosses sit at the back!!! *whispers* see! That’s my chauffeur.

Huh?! Nothing Papa!! I didn’t say anything! You’ve heard wrongly. *smiles at Papa beatifically*

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5847.png

Ah ha! Here’s my destination. Time to alight!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5848.png

This is hard work!! Crawling on the balance bar!! But the thought of having a trim and fit body after the work out pushes me on!

Go Ming Ming Go!! You can do it!! Rawrrrr!!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5849.png

Hey!! There’s a phone there!!! *looks around* yoo hoo!!!

Whose phone is that?!?! Look! I’m an honest boy!!! There’s a phone here!!!

But if no one claims it, I’m going to take it over?!?!

Hmmm… Ok quickly update my blog then put it back. Me honest honest. No take strange phones at gym.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5850.png

Trying out the scooter next. Vroom!!! Wobble wobble! Careful Ming Ming!! Balance balance!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5851.png

I guess this is still my favourite ride. It even has a bum rest. Just nice for my tight butt.

Huh? I’m riding it back to front?? Now look here buddy! I’m holding the handlebar. That’s the front!! The one behind is my butt rest!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5852.png

And let me demonstrate how to drive it.

*push push* then you wriggle your butt against the butt rest. You get to exercise your butt as well.

There!!! Now that’s the right way to ride the bum kneader!!!

Ming Ming's Diary – Sensory Play, No Fun!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5827.png

My papa is doing sensory play with me. The adults have a bee in the bonnet about this!! They make me take off my beautiful socks and walk on sand, grass, carpet (I kind of like the carpet one), bamboo sticks!!! Straw mats etc.

Mama says, “look! He’s tip toeing! He doesn’t like it!”

Of course!! C’mon! If it’s so fun, why isn’t my papa taking off his shoes and doing this sensory thingy with me!!! Look at his feet in the picture!!! He’s wearing shoes while I’m getting my handsome feet dirty!!!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5828.png

And I have to crawl all over the dead brown grass (as if they were not tortured enough by the scorching heat) for this sensory thing.

Why aren’t the adults crawling on the grass??? Huh? Huh?? Huh?!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5829.png

Ah see!! Another piece of evidence!! My papa wears shoes on grass while I have to crawl all over!!! Where’s justice??? Where where where????

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5830.png

My Jie Jie gets to play on the swing and I only get to muck around on sand and dead grass…..

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5831.png

Darn! She said she’s done her dues. How long more must I do this drudgery????? *grumble*

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/351/8709637/files/2014/12/img_5832.png

Oh wait!!! What’s this?! Good heavens!!! I’ve a BALD patch on my head???? 😭

And I’m only 1 year old!!!

How can I grow hair back??? Can anyone tell me???

Ming Ming's Diary – Earthshaking Snores 😖😖😖

IMG_5804.PNG

My papa is snoring so loudly that the bed is shaking!!! How am I going to get any sleep??? I’m going to get dark circles under my eyes! Horrors! Eye bags too!!

I won’t look Mingalicious tomorrow!! 😩

IMG_5805.PNG

Arghhh!!! The whole bed is shaking!!! I wonder if he’d stop if I stick my fingers up his nostrils???

IMG_5806.PNG

Papa made me so tired with his incessant snoring that I almost overslept and missed school!!!

And I LOVE school!!

There are 101 things you can do in school!! Infinite number of toys! All the gentle and loving babes there!

They shouldn’t call it school. They should call it PARADISE!! 😍😍😍

When you were at my age, have you ever thought of what you want to be when you grow up?

Well I have!

I thought really really hard about it. It really wasn’t an easy decision.

How did I decide? Arh! That’s the secret. I tried all the headwear in school! The one that makes me look the most suave, that’s the one!!

IMG_5807.PNG

Fire fighter?? Nah!

Postman?? Hmmm…

IMG_5808.PNG

Cool??? You can’t see me???

My whole head is in the helmet!! It’s safer this way! It’s bullet proof!! Me thinks I look kind of cool in the police’s helmet.

IMG_5809.PNG

There! My handsome face!! My side view. Suave law enforcer???

IMG_5810.PNG

Part of my job. Patrolling along the corridors. To keep my school safe from the baddies.

IMG_5811.PNG

Fall in!!! Time for physical exercise!

I’m mean! I’m tough!! *flexes muscles*

I’m a policeman! Don’t you mess with me!

IMG_5812.PNG

I stretched and stretched and ate my toes!!!

IMG_5813.PNG

Easy peasey. I’m in tip top condition! Fit as a fiddly policeman! 💪💪💪

IMG_5814.PNG

Huff puff! That was a tiring session. Now to sit down and practise my painting.

Whaaat??? Mama! Where did my cute tigger romper go? You forgot to bring my apron?!

And now you are expecting me to paint in my birthday suit???

I can’t think naked! Return me my clothes!!! I’m the only naked boy in class!!!

*grumble*

There goes my cool law enforcer image! After all the effort I’ve put in. 😑

Ming Ming's Diary – Mama May I Have a Phone Pulease?? (2nd Attempt)

Ming Ming's Diary – Mama May I Have a Phone Pulease?? (2nd Attempt)

Yes! My first attempt failed. But I never give up!!

IMG_5798.PNG

Jie Jie : Mama when can I buy a phone?
Mama : at the age when I got my first phone.
Jie Jie : how old??
Mama : 21
Jie Jie: waaa!!! I’m only 4!!
So long! But Mama it’s not a real phone. It’s a toy phone.
Mama : toy phone?? That’s even worse! A waste of money and no real use!!
Jie Jie: but Mama, Amanda and Clare have it. It’s a hello kitty phone! And it’s really pretty! (Tsk! wrong strategy! I told her not to mention hello kitty at all cost!! But did she listen to me?! Sigh! *face palm*)

IMG_5799.PNG

Oh man! It’s so hard to update my blog without my own phone. Mama has been working day and night. When I wake up, she kisses me and leaves for work. Then I fall asleep for the night, when she’s home.

I never get to use her phone!! Hmmmpppff!!!

I’ve even convinced my cutie pie Jie Jie to ask Mama to buy her a phone so that I can Erm… Borrow it from her.

Mama: you have so many things that they don’t have! Why don’t you ask them to ask their Mamas to buy those for them?? I’ll give you 10 cents a day. You can buy one when you have saved up enough. (It’s going to take a million years!!)

Sigh! We should have done the Papa way. It’d have been much easier. 😕

IMG_5800.PNG

Say! They have lots of phones in school. Do you think they would notice it if I nick one??

IMG_5801.PNG

Hmmm… It can’t seem to fit into my pocket.

IMG_5802.PNG

Maybe if I fold it this way….

IMG_5803.PNG

I know!!! I can slot it inside my jacket and strap it to my tummy!!! No one will know!! Ah ha!!! 😉

I’ll just use it to update my blog then return it to school!! Borrow only!!!

I’ve finally got over my flu bout!! Just some phlegm left in my throat. *cough* *cough*

I didn’t take any medicine because my soldiers are fighting the bad bad virus for me. And I’ve won!! And now I’ve got my immunity badge! *achievement unlocked!*

Now I’m not scared of you anymore! *pffft*

So now I’m back in school today. Wow!! The warm welcome I received! From teachers to friends! Told ya I’m popular with the ladies. And all the teachers kissed kissed me. Fwah! Felt so loved!! 😍

IMG_5792.PNG

Ship Ahoy!!

There I am! Standing high up on the playground, steering my ship. Cutting a dashing figure up there.

IMG_5793.PNG

Then I dazzled everyone with my nifty dance steps.

“May I have the next dance, honey?”

IMG_5794.PNG

Oopsy! Are you ok?

*whispers* babes are falling over to have a dance with me! Gosh! My popularity rating is shooting through the roof!!

I think I should help her like a gentleman should.

IMG_5795.PNG

Do you see my biceps?? I can do lots of push ups! 💪💪💪

IMG_5796.PNG

I’m well already! Really!! See! Check my tongue? That’s what doctors do.

IMG_5797.PNG

She’s the one. Sweet right?? We have been hanging out a lot together in class. 😍
