D Speaks

Monday, June 12th, 2017

D just turned 3. He has been speaking in complete sentences for awhile now. He doesn’t parrot and seems capable of deducing things. 

Like I was telling his dad the other day “shhh … didi is sleeping”, and D promptly said to his dad “Daddy, Mummy said you must be quiet”. 

He also likes to gives instructions:

D: I kick the ball to daddy, then daddy will kick the ball to you. 

After our recent Parent-Teacher session, we made another astonishing discover. D apparently also speaks complete sentences in mandarin in school. Also he’s the only one that speaks complete sentences in his class. 

It’s a surprise to us because he hardly speaks mandarin at home, and we were actually worried he might have problems with mandarin in future. 

We have also been using mandarin as our secret language whenever we want to discuss something, which we don’t want him to hear. Apparently he understands most of what we’ve been saying. 

We had our suspicions – S & my mum spoke Hokkien, and instantly he had a frown on his face and looked upset that they were saying something he couldn’t understand. 

A new secret language is necessary. Time for me to learn Hokkien.

… just reach out and open it if that’s still where you want to go!

My almost 3 year old has finally figured out how to open doors. And he’s been happily letting himself in and out of rooms. 

Ahh … the joy of independence, and a whole new world to explore!

Thunderstorms 

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

I find thunderstorms kinda therapeutic. The rumblings and the pitter patter of the rain drops. 

But now with D having developed a fear of thunder, whenever there’s a thunderstorm, I wonder if D is ok at school, if he’s freaked out. 

Hopefully he outgrows that fear with age. Then we can enjoy watching the thunderstorms together. 

Now mobile!

Just installed the iPhone WordPress App. I don’t use my laptop that much these days. But at the same time, the phone isn’t enough to do everything I want, so I can’t ditch the laptop.

But now that I have this app, here’s to more random postings on this neglected site. ????

Singtel Mobile Broadband

I got the 1MB plan from singtel at the PC Show. So far it’s worked everywhere I’ve tried it, including my house, at the workplace carpark, and even in the mrt from bishan towards town!

The crowd was crazy at the singtel booth, but I think it was worth it.

Speeds underground is kinda funky though.
