KY milestone at 3 years 2 months old

Hi folks,

It's been quite a LONNGGG time since I update milestone for KY. Cannot image my little baby has grown up so much!! Soon I guess we can share same clothing haha just like how I used to share my mom's shirts..haha..

My little girl has been such a great helper and sister to her bro,Shone.

But mommy been neglecting and scolding her too much. Felt really bad.

She's been this sweet, curious and rebel at this age. This makes her dad
real angry at her sometimes. Though it is widely known that somehow dad
adores their daughter as some people believe daughter is the father's girlfriend in their past life. haha...

Though she's over the terrible two stage, but she can be quite a challenge and hard to handle sometimes especially when it comes to giving in to his bro sometimes.

I must say at this age, she is full of "whys" which is good. She is very curious and would open up(dismantle) toys, gadgets, whatever that falls into her hand.

Thus, I always warned DH not to let her got hold of any of hi expensive gadgets. Am trying to reduce the times she gets punished and reprimanded(unnecessarily). Actually sometimes I felt it is adults who is at fault for leaving things at their reach and not informing them enough what items shouldn't be taken or dismantle and why.

Ok now comes to KY's milestone:
1. Instead of fav. food i think it is fav titbits(KY is such a titbit junkie like DH!)
  • Chocolates- Kinder Joy, Kinder Bueno
  • 100 plus, yakult, vitagen, milo, isomil(her official milk powder after she weaned)
  • Sweets, much to my dismay,I have NEVER offer her any until one day she was being given one by an older child and she WAS HOOKED from then on...which kids won't get hooked? Me(I am the odd one..I DON'T like sweets but I can't refuse ice-cream and chocolates), ranges from Hacks, Chup Chup to any kinds in fact!!
  • Ice-cream- her frequent sharing moment with DH
2. Loves to sing and dance

3. Favourite movies/TV program - Hi 5, Barney, The Legend of Bruce Lee, Korean movie showing surgeons and doctors, Hong Kong movie showing rescue officers with helicopters(sorry cannot recall the drama title), Nemo, Madagascar, The Simpsons, Our Wedding VCD(haha, her all time fav. and always asked where is she or why she's not in there, and why her bro. is not there too)

4. Loves to help me with cooking, doing laundry.

5. Clumsy when it comes to self-feeding, she often spilt her drinks 9 out of 10 times(much to her dad's dismay and reprimand)

Honestly, I seems to have neglected her other language development as I am often busy BF the younger bro. and drop-dead tired at night after work. Talking about this...when will I reach my WAHM dream?

Anyway , Life gotta Carpe Diem! From now on, I will arrange some activities to share with her every night so that her golden learning years does not go to waste!

Do you have a toddler around the same age as KY? I love to hear what precious moments/ activities you do with your kids.

Do share with me!

Cheers!

Now, at 15 months, he is still being BF. Lucky boy that he still insist to be BF at night when we are both home.

  • Games he likes playing - Hide n Seek - behind curtains,beside mommy's big bed, space in between the wall and cupboard, che che(KY's) tricycle, drawer box as his pretend car
  • Gadgets he took to his liking- daddy's laptop and keyboard+ mouse, daddy's handphone,TV remote control
  • Food intake - Drink 7oz milk twice daytime, thrice(amount unknown-direct BF) at night, have two meals of assortment of noodles, rice-with soup or porridge(adult food with less salt), tried ice-cream and currently his favourite, loves orange juice, grapes, papaya, avocado, no liking for guava, can eat non-stop like che che KY :P
  • Taken ubat cacing(worm medication at 15 months at govt. clinic), Weighted at 11.2kg slightly slow growth which partly due to recent attacks of diarrhea and vomitting
  • Had diarrhea and vomit attacks a week before the diarrhea attack, recovers within 2 days- Sentosa Medical Ped advice no milk till he finished two bottles of Gatorade(1 oz of water mix with 6oz of Gatorade)
  • Favourite songs- sing twinkle2 little start with star gestures ends with hands clapping and say hip hip hurray(with both hands high up), Incy Wincy Spider, any fast moving track which he would dance along
  • Hygiene: Started brushing his own teeth and frequent handwashing

Women Entreprenuer Conference 2009 Update -Day 2

Hi folks,

Here is my Day 2 post on Women Entreprenuer Conference 2009. Check out my previous post on this event on Part 1,Part 2 and Day 1.

For Day 2, we started off with another CEO Forum- Marketing through Social Web Media. And the panelist are the who's who in the Social Web Media now in Malaysia:

Chris Tan, Managing Partner, Chur Associates

Kid Chan, Founder & Celebrity Photographer, KIDCHANSTUDIO

Timothy Tiah, Co-Founder & Executive Director, Nuffnang

Tan Yet Mee, Founder & Editor, emmagem.com

Moderator:

Eliza Noordin, Vice President, Teak Capital


Yes, include the famous wedding or event photographer, Kid Chan and of course Nuffnang Co-founder Timothy Tiah!!


Here's a picture I managed to capture with Timothy...thanks to a new-found friend I befriended during the conference who managed to capture a shot for me before Tim is surrounded by swarms of bees or Gorgeous Geeks... :P well by the way,if you have been following Tim's blog here, you would know he's very dedicated to his Princess(gf) ok....even before agreeing to attend this conference, he have asked his Princess for the Go Ahead ok...such nice guy!!


Ok, back to the Day 2 agenda, we have Chris the geeky lawyer who has strings of associates and sit on the board for various organisation...well..although he talked a lot(lawyer ler) , rather lengthy talk but what he show on what he has done on his website(allow me to track back his site url) is rather amazing...as he has used various social media tool in his site.


Then we have Kid Chan,the celebrated photographer which sorry I don't recall much of what he shared other than the story about his wife and his privacy. Maybe I am too attracted by his cool black sunglasses. But he does strikes me as a rather nice family guy, he even brought his mom along and guess what his mom uses Facebook as well! Oh yes, he did mentioned about having his Fan Page at Facebook and getting deals for his wife (a fitness instructor) from his client. The power of social media!


Then comes Timothy who demonstrated the power of social media(in this case Twitter) by calling out few names in the audience whom he have not met but have seen their twits saying that they are now attending Women Entreprenuer Conference 2009. Now that speaks out a lot about how social media

is set to transform how social networking and biz works now.


Next we have Product & Market Positioning - Applying the Blue Ocean Strategy, a true case study and real life example on the application of Blue Ocean strategy from the planning, marketing to the operation of Laurent Bleu Skin Science Centre by Sharon Ang, the lovely Centre Manager. I am eager to visit this centre to witness the technology and method they applied as a customer...in fact we received some vouchers(gg out there..anyone of you have gone to the centre or like to go...leave your comment here!)



Then, we have a wow, fast yet very very informational talk by the Ebay Power Seller cum eBay Education Specialist and owner of Chiica Consultations, Carol Fung sharing on The Online Opportunity - Why We Should Be Selling on eBay. Another real-life example topic very very good one!


Then we have another forum on Journey for Financial Support & Grant for Business Part 2 which I have not find it useful largely 'cos I have yet to have such a great SME idea which I feel valid for a grant/loan but to many women entrepreneur who attended the event,I think they find it beneficial!


Next we have E-Payment for E-Commerce: All about E-Payment and How to prevent Online Fraud by ipay88. For those who used to purchase/sell online,I think this co. is not unfamiliar for you. It's a gateway for online (credit card) purchase.


Last but not least we have Letting Customers Find YOU – and YOUR PRODUCTS, On the Internet by Hanson(the only Google Inc employee based in Malaysia and yes he is working from home too!). His talk largely focus on Google Adword. And we received Google Adword voucher from them ;) (GG, have you used your Google Adword voucher, if you don't need it, pls. let me know..I would love to have it..thanks ya!)



OK..that sums up my coverage(cheh wah) on Women Entreprenuer Conference 2009 .


Hopefully by the next event by GG, I would already become an Entreprenuer or Technopreneur!


Cheers!
