It has been a very busy and tiring week. The flu bug had struck and for the last 2 weeks, my family members took turns to fall sick. I have been suffering from bout of sore throat, coughing and runny nose since last Saturday. Luckily Mal was spared from the vicious virus. I had to make a conscious effort to keep a distance from him so that I won’t pass it on to him. Not to share cutlery, not to sleep too near him, turn on the fan instead of air con when we sleep so that the room is well ventilated, no kissing esp on the lips etc. But ultimately, I think it was the vitamin supplements that he has been chewing on every morning that helps.
It was one of those times when you feel too sick to get out the house but yet not so sick as to be bed ridden. With a little push and A LOT of effort, I managed to drag my tired self out of the house and do the things that ought to be done.
I surprised myself at how much my sick body can achieved!
Tuesday - we attended ??(ren ri) celebration at Mal’s school, with all his teachers and friends. It is the birthday for everyone and it is the time for Lou Hei for prosperity and Mee Sua for longevity.Wednesday - we celebrated valentine’s day with lunch and flowers, yeah just me and mal. oh and Mal ‘conquered’ the Bugis fountain! He finally mustered enough courage to walk through the fountain but was totally drenched when the water suddenly shoot up. After that, he was running around the fountain wildly, something he will not do normally.
Mal is a rather careful or I should say timid boy. For new things that he has never tried before, he will choose to stand at the side to watch and observe when the other kids are in action. So I was overjoyed when he finally have the courage to run into the fountain and get himself wet. It was an achievement for my boy Too bad I did not bring out my camera with me.
Thursday - we prayed to the sky deity during midnightFriday - we went to the preview for Singapore Airshow 2008
Saturday - we attended our first ever Chingay 2008 at Padang!
It sure was a tiring week for me and a very eventful one for Mal.
