The Love Shack (pun intended)
Ok peeps, I'm taking y'all on a guided tour of my new home. Fasten your seatbelts please.
The pebblewash entrance before it was polished(kinda regret this coz my son can't crawl on such a rough surface)
The hall. Should have swtiched on the lights before I took the pic. A bit dark huh?
The wood and glass partition at the kitchen entrance.
The new spanky kitchen cabinets. Oops I can see the cloth rag on the table top...what a GREAT camerawoman I make *sigh*
The corridor outside the bedrooms. The bedroom with the open door is the masterbedroom. There are 2 more bedrooms and a study.
Entrance to master toilet.
The bathtub where I can relax and pamper myself. Now I don't need to go to a hotel just to get the chance to soak...yippee!
Silly me forgot to take pics of the rooms...so just wait for the housewarming ok. :)

I promise to do my best
To do my duty to God
To serve my country
And to help other people
And to keep the Guide's (?) law
Errrr....where did that come from? Must be from some unused part of my almost-dead brain. heheh. Anyone else remember that promise that we Guides have to say while sticking out our 2 fingers of the right hand at the side of the shoulder?
But anyway, that's not actually what I'm gonna promise...
Ok, I swear to upload my house pics these weekend, defects and all....
PROVIDED the oh-so-slow dial up doesn't hang on me while I'm studiously trying to upload the pics just so I can post on my blog for my fellow bloggers to see
How, good enuff? I try my very the best okies....
In the meantime, some interesting stuff

The Velcro Baby
When I first saw the title, I thought, hmm, maybe the baby has a lot of baby stuffs like toys, etc. that uses velcro to stick it together... duuuhhh..how dumb can that be? :) Of coz I was wrong...
What babycentre meant by that was this:
If you asked many babies of this age what their ideal world would be like -- and they could tell you -- their answer would probably be a world in which their primary caregiver never, ever left their side. Some people call these babies clingy, others call them demanding... and they are demanding. If you leave the room to go to the loo, they cry piteously. If you go into the garden to hang out some laundry, they whine until you come back. If your baby is like this, remember that the best ways of helping him through this anxious phase are to understand his concerns: he really, truly does not know if you will ever come back, once you are out of his sight. To help him feel confident about your coming and going, and to reassure him that you will always come back, never slip away when he isn't looking. If he knows that you could vanish at any moment, he may well become even more anxious...
Actually, I got this email from them abt 2 weeks back and my baby Mikail was already a Velcro baby by then. He still is!
Good thing that comes out from this is that I know my baby knows me and loves me and couldn't bear to be without me for a second! If that doesn't feel you up with a sense of accomplishment as a mother, overflowing love for you child and sadness that you're leaving him for the time being, I dunno what will. Gosh, I love my son sooo much.
And yep, I'm trying to squeeze in an entry for today despite being soo biiizzzeee...shhh, dun tell my boss.
