My friend Glen

Hmmm… I’m flying off to Shanghai le! Hahaha. But just feel the need to write down something that I’m very proud to have. My friend Glen Qiu. Hahaha.

Just went to his Fitness Movement League Competition to support him at Star Vista. Even though he didn’t win, we(Sam, Eileen, Tina) really felt very proud of him for his achievement. Hahaha.

I knew Glen since we were 16 yrs old during a church cell group meeting. Didn’t know why, but we clicked quite well with each other. Always skip church together, hang out together, and strangely, we have some very common things. Like, both our sisters have the same birthdate and same year! Hahaha. Totally the same. We both retained during our secondary school days. Hahaha! We both are very big size… a lot of people say when we walk together, it’s rather scary. Hahaha. But we always have our differences, like he is a die hard Chelsea fan and I’m a die hard Manchester United fan. Always fighting with each other over our supporting clubs. Though sometimes it can get rather irritating, but I really enjoy this kind of friendship with him. 

Throughout our friendship, we were always known as the big size partners. Our friends call him Pui Kia or ah bui.. and call me pui hong. Hahaha. So that’s was it. Until recently, Glen went into an slimming product, or he can say it’s a detox program. Hahaha. Ok… this was him before. (Sorry Glen, I went to your Facebook to get your old photos. Hahahaha!!)


This was him and me. You can see his face still round round one. Hahaha. Even though the both of us go gym and train,  but we were never able to be lean. But he did it! 

He started the program in Dec 2014.


Can see the difference? I’m quite sure he’s gonna kill me for posting. Hahaha. But it’s really effective for him. Ok… people will ask me why I didn’t try the program. I did.. but I can’t “tahan” the detox days so I gave up. Hahaha. It really requires very strong determination and discipline to achieve the effect. Anyway, he kept on going. Training and doing the program and he decided to challenge himself and enter his first ever fitness competition. He say it’s not bodybuilding. So yeah.. I just call it fitness competition. Hahaha. And today is the day of his competition! This is the outcome of all his intense training and strict diet.


Wow man!! Though I still like to disturb him, but seriously, I’m really proud of his achievement! Even though he didn’t win, but we were so proud of him! Who will guess he can one day go up stage and compete with so many people and his body can be so nice?? Hahaha! 

Just wanna say I’m really proud of him, but I will still continue to poke fun at his fitness regime. 😊😊😊 

Congrats and do better next year Glen!

It’s a joy to see Mikaela growing up. Almost everyday you will see that she has something new to show you. Maybe is a word, a number or new actions.

Recently Mikaela starts to “sabo” Haha(my dog’s name). Hahaha. Whenever Haha is upset with us, he will either pee on different places, or just poo on the floor. This is his way of throwing tantrum. Hahaha. Usually he does that when we leave our house. So.. One day, after my mom and Samantha left for work, Mikaela and I stayed home as Mikaela was not well. I was still sleeping in the room. Haha started barking when they left the house, so Mikaela will shout “Haha! No! Down!”. Hahaha! But Haha usually ignores her. Maybe he don’t treat her as master yet. Hahaha. Anyway, so when I woke up, I went to the kitchen still in my sleepy state to grab drink. Mikaela start to scream “HAHA! HAHA! Ta Ta gu Ta ti(baby language)” and pointing to a specific location. I went to have a look at where she was pointing and I saw Haha’s urine on the floor under one of our table in the corner of our living room. That corner is actually quite hard to discover as there is quite a lot of Mikaela’s toys there, so we don’t usually pay attention to that location. When Mikaela started screaming to alert me of Haha’s bad deed, Haha looked at Mikaela and just walked back to his cage with a guilty face. I was thinking to myself that Haha must be thinking “WTS! Why you sago me???!” Hahaha. Ok.. I think too much.. Hahaha. Anyway, Haha loves Mikaela.. Even after that incident, he will still her bully him. Hahaha. I’m sure as Mikaela grows up, she will surely be very close with Haha. =)

 

Recently, lots of people were sharing on articles or videos on certain group of people were trying to “kidnap” their kids at shopping malls. There was a video that caught my attention. It was about how the group will act as if they are the family members of the mother of the kid and started to say the mother was torturing the kid and started to grab the kid away even though the mother was saying she doesn’t know them. As it looks like a family dispute, so the crowd didn’t do anything to help the mother. Luckily there was a lady who seems to know the scam stopped them from leaving. This is such a scary case. I really hope that it will not happen in Singapore.

After watching the videos, I remember Samantha and I had an experience before. Not the same as the video. Not so drama. But it was scary when we think about it. It was before Mikaela turn 1 year old. And during that time, there were reports of cases that people grab the kid away while the parents were not looking. I’m not sure if ours was like that, but just want to share.

We went to Vivocity for shopping during 1 of the weekend. As Mikaela couldn’t walk that time, we brought the baby pram with us. We were at FOX the clothing shop, Samantha was looking at clothes for Mikaela in the shop while I was waiting outside the shop with Mikaela. Then came an old uncle. He came really near us and started to play with Mikaela, making funny faces, but not touching her, so I was ok with it. Then he started to ask me how old is she, when was she born all these. I just answer him, but never say the date of the birthday. Then he started moving really close to us, and I felt quite uncomfortable, but I just hold on to the pram tightly and started to shield Mikaela from him. Samantha saw the incident and started to call me to come into the shop to see the clothes with her. When I went in, she asked me who’s the uncle and she said that she was feeling very uncomfortable with him. As I didn’t think much of it, I told her he might be waiting for someone in the shop. But….. in the shop, there was only my family and other family. When I looked for him, he was still outside the shop looking at us, standing there. So we started to feel really uneasy.. We stayed in the shop for a while more to get our stuffs. When we left the shop, he was no longer there.

It might be we think too much la… But as a parent, you should never take the risk. Can you imagine if you just relax for a moment, and your child is taken, you will surely regret for the rest of your life. I’m not saying whoever comes to you and wanna play with your kid, they have bad motives. You just need to be more careful. After that incident and reading all the articles, we will always be very close with Mikaela even when she knows how to walk and run now. So…. Be safe!!!
