My favourite nephew turned 9 years old on Sunday 17th November, but his Mami decided to celebrate earlier.. which is good coz then it frees up our weekend for our activities and she can bring birthday boy out to celebrate on actual day.
We proceed to our next destination after the celebration.
Aiden has been talking abt visiting BearBear and the husband has been saying he wanna bring Asher go swimming.. so the best place to go where everyone will be happy is to Uncle Beb's hse! Yay!!
The minute he saw BearBear, Aiden started terrorizing the cat lah!! And Asher somehow had developed a fear of cats. I dunno how it happened. When we get near Bearbear, he will tighten his grip on me and push his body back. I don't recall Aiden reacting that way when he was a baby. So maybe this fear of cats are like already in you since birth? I dunno.
That night after the kids are asleep, the husband and i snuck out to Pasar Borong Pandan. I really dont see what the hype is all abt. Ppl raved abt the clothes, abt the replica bags, abt how it is a shopping haven. All i saw was low quality products all around. Maybe the food are delicious but we just had dinner and not hungry enuff to brave the notsoclean looking place. But no matter what, we walked several rounds ard the place just basking in the atmosphere and enjoying the time together without the kids. It was close to 2am by the time we got back to Abang's plc.
U noe how it is when u r not sleeping in ur own bed? As much as the bed was extremely comfortable, u will wake up early coz u r a guest in someone's home and do not wanna impose too much on them? So yeah, next morning i woke up pretty early and by 9am we all trooped down to the swimming pool ready for some splashing fun.
Asher took to swimming like a fish took to water. Seeing this is the first time he's in a pool, i am very happy to see him splash abt and not bothered when the water splashed onto his face. Very unlike his brother. Aiden is somehow not so relaxed in the water. When a bit of water splashed onto his face he will start to panic. I have videos of them in the pool which i will try to upload here soon. Anyway, its still early days.. we will decide if they shld attend swimming classes in future. The husband, the minute he saw how Asher was so at home in the pool, commented this, "Aiden cfm anak u.. penakot air mcm mak dia." Aik? Aku lagi.. hahahhaha.
It was quite easy getting them to nap after the swim. And that night both kids went to bed by 8pm!! The parents thought of getting started on Asher's birthday party plans... but we were too exhausted ourselves.
So now... picture time!
