Lazy mummy....MIA for 2011 =P (part1)

Well as the title suggests (heee...) Mummy here is feeling guilty (actually our trips, activities, parties had already been uploaded to our FB.. excuses? hee) & decided to do this.. a re-cap of our 2011! This is part 1 i.e. first 6mths in 2011..hope I won't take another year to cough out our Jun-Dec 2011 ^^

Yes, it was darling's 2nd time to HKG. First time was with GongGong and PoPo when darling was still mini sized so we skipped the kiddos's places back then. For our 2011 trip, we included Disney!

Check out more of our Disney fotos here

We also visited Noah's Ark, Snoopy ... and darling had her first taste of coffee

More of our HKG 2011 fotos here

Darling's 4th CNY ^^
This year we DIY-ed CNY greeting cards to some of our elders (here)

Our first baking session using mummy's micro-wave oven's conventional baking function. Mummy contemplated getting a traditional oven but given the small house we have, plus the frequency of our baking adventures, decided to stick with the micro-wave oven... (here)

Our next adventure with our oven... (here)

Orange Juiced!


Choc cake using pre-packed ready cake mix
Its edible, but not sure if it is tasty anot =P

DIY Kite for kite flying & picnic
We made a date to DIY our kite and go picnic with darling's BFF, Nicole ^^ but weather was bad up till an hour before our outing, hence Nicole din join us. We went ahead with GongGong PoPo and xiaoyi thou.. heee .. our kite never really made it into the skies =P (here)

Earth Hour 2011
We attended the 1 hour walk organised by WWF in March.
Looking back at the fotos, I'm wondering why did darling put on her cap for a walk in the evening...hmmmm ..

Some activities and makan before Mr Golden Sun fully sets and we cant see our fingers!

The laser lighting show at MBS which went on as usual coz its scheduled before the kick-off time of the Earth Hour.. Irony ahhh

Darling embarked on her Earth Hour walk, seated on daddy's shoulders!

Heee..Mummy confirm did the 3.5KM walk but can't say the same about darling ^^

Dayi was very very much involved in this and we showed our support in various ways. On the results announcement day.. this is what we did:
DIY a choc cake with hammer jelly for ah yeeeeee.. not presentable but edible =P

Turning up and staying till 4 am .. the crowds on the street after the party was HAVOC! Like soccer match, Liverpool WON against MU .. (haaa)

WP Appreication lunch
The nicer and more presentable.. hammer cake!

Fans queueing for their idol's signature..Kpop idol? nope, its Mr Low ^^

Long Kang Fishing

Draw a STORY
Mummy decided to do this with darling which engages darling from drawing to proper sentence structuring to logic/creative thinking. Well mummy started with Shirui the little red ridig hood - Lisa's version.

Here's darling's story of Shirui and the Beast

Story ended with some drama acting by little drama queen and a napping daddy:

Check this out for the full story .. hee

Darling joined her ballet class back in April 2011.. First lesson is 'open curtain' sessions thereafter we can't see what goes on inside...unless we peep thru the loopholes inbetween the curtains =P

This was darling wearing her ballet attire the first time

This was taken recently in Sept 2011,
.. spot the difference?

So how did darling fare in 2011? Check out her Report card (June 2011)... heee...
