Sweet memories

I started writing blogs in 2006 (the previous Yahoo 360) but it closed down a few months ago. I managed to save my data before it's all gone. Those are precious memories and I'll soon print out a set of hardcopy (about 500 pages).

My kids love to read my old blog. It's a special "digital time machine" for them to go back to the early years of their childhood.

The following are some of my favourite pictures with the captions I wrote at that time.

Is it fun to have three pairs of twins? Tian Juin names them the "Evil Twins"...no fun for the mom. (2006)
The mischievous Tian Zi (2006)
Tian Huey drawing a portrait of her little sister. (2006)
Having a good time "camping" inside Juin's room. (2006)
How is it like to be the only boy around? (2006)
Tian Huey's lantern was selected by her teacher to participate in the competition. We're going to attend the mooncake festival cum the competition result announcement (tomorrow evening). (2006)
Tian Zi the SUPER cooperative MODEL!! (2007)
My girls are smiling at each other after receiving their prizes (TH won the consolation prize and Tian Zi's the Second runner-up). Thanks to their Xiao Gu for giving them the beautiful Korean dress.(2007)
I asked TZ who she "wished to" to pass it to.
"Ko Ko," she replied.(She chose her brother as victim. Didn't dare to offend her sister? Man is more forgiving?) (2007) (note: she passed the virus to both! How fair!!)
Daddy is always there to support his little girl. (2007)
My girls and their cousins Jing Ya & Jing Xuan decorated the tree happily. To add to the excitement, I let them draw lots to see who could be the one to LIGHT UP the tree.(2007)

I saw a lovely shadow on the wall this morning when I was looking up the staircase. It's Tian Zi with her bolster. (2007)

Tian Zi's grandma is giving her a haircut...(2008)
Few days ago I woke up early and spotted my hubby sewing my daughter's belt at 6:30 in the morning. How wonderful to marry a man who loves his family so much :-) ----- (2008)

TZ agreed to cut her hair short after we found lice in her hair, just like her elder sister Tian Huey. (2008)
My daughters used their secret weapons - the shower caps and head lice shampoo to exterminate those blood sucking invaders. (2008)

Mom gave TJ an angpao & a note for his 11 years old birthday on the 25th of October.
“恬駿 生日快樂心想事成。外婆很高興你又年長多一歲了 明年你將考你的六年級了。你的成績很好外婆不擔心。不過還是必需再努力加油喔因為求學如「逆水行舟不進則退」希望你是兩個妹妹的好榜樣好哥哥。
愛你的外婆” (2008)

Yesterday my hubby spotted a big dried leaf near the club house swimming pool and my kids instantly remembered they came across it in Lat's "Kampung Boy". (2008)
Last week, I "recycled" my son's short pants that he'd outgrown & turned it into :
PAJAMA for TZ Barney,
a PAIR OF PANTS for TJ's Tokemon that he owned since 5 years old

a MINI SKIRT & RIBBON for TH's CJ7. (2008)
