It's almost February!

Everytime when I reached home, showered, settle the little terror to bed, it leaves me just a couple of hours max to have some personal time before we hit the sack.

And being such a couch potato, I often find myself in front of the telly, trying to catch up on the latest news(yeah right) drama series so as to be updated on the latest rave.

I shamelessly admit that the Wii has been sitting unassembled in the living room for the past 5 days. And only yesterday, after countless nagging to the IT goondu aka Dylan, that I decided to fix it up myself. And we only got to creating our own Miis - not even near playing a game of tennis yet!

And hence, I hope you get the drift on my lack of posts. I am just *ahem* lazy too busy.

Apart from that, we had a few 'activities' lined-up over past few weeks that kept us out of the house most of the time.

We first started 2010 celebrating with the Heng's family. Dinner at Conrad's Oscars (yes, I finally got the outdated photos from Cel)

Then we visited Snow City, complimentary tickets from Dylan's friend. We were amazed at how spontaneous Jayden was when he insisted to have a go at the 'snow-slide' despite shivering in his pants. We were also astounded at the mad crowd that was queueing up for just one turn to get down the bumpy, not-so-fun, I-almost-teared-my-leggings slide. Basically, that place was a one-off and thank goodness, it was complimentary!

Just last week, we celebrated Olivia's 30th birthday. She requested for everyone to be dressed in red & black. Even the cake Irene ordered was color coordinated and I'm very pleased with the result!

We tried to let Jayden stayed till midnight and he was really determined to wait till the cake cutting. He wouldn't even allow us to bring him home despite being so sleepy. However, the poor boy was getting grumpy and quiet by 11pm and so Liv relented and decided to have her birthday earlier. (Thanks!) And Jayden did finish the big slice of cake and said we can go home now.

We literally dragged ourselves out from bed the following day to meet Dewi & family to the Science Center.

Jayden wasn't very pleased with me wanting to take a photo with the dinosaur. I even had to explain to him that it's just a battery operated toy and the funny boy requested to check its tail for batteries! -_-

I realized that Jayden chooses his friends selectively. He can be quite stubbon and unsociable at times. He will tell me that he only has two friends (out of 10) in his school. I hope it's just a passing phase and he can learn to open up with his playmates more.

Jayden and Chloe were holding hands diligently while the crazy mom, me, were trying to take snapshots of them. Both of them let go of their hands once I said "Ok!" and ran off in opposite directions. Gosh...they really don't like each other eh?

Overall, it was a nice trip to the west on a Sunday morning. It has been ages since I last stepped foot at the Science Center.

I could hardly remember any of the exhibits except the chick hatching incubator that left me traumatised for months and not eating any eggs.

A new month awaits and there will be more exciting activities ahead - Daddy's birthday!
