And we all fall down

The last couple of weeks have been all about falling. Anyway, they say things come in 3's, so I guess no more falling down. About 3 weeks ago, just before the Merdeka celebrations, I had a fall near my office and had quite a deep cut on my knee. Then last week, Rowena fell down and bumped her head and last weekend Harvynna fell.

This was scary as she fell down the escalator at Bangsar Village. We were rushing for their Gymboree class and I was holding their bag and carrying Rowena. Harvynna has this thing about looking everywhere else but infront when she walks and she missed a step and fell and almost hit her head back. Luckily there was a lady behind us that quickly pulled Harvynna up, but she was so scared and started crying. She was unhurt but a bit shaken.

I hope she has not developed a phobia for escalators as on the way back she told me to take the elevator. She stood infront of the escalator and said 'I dont want to go here'. Oh dear!

Honestly, I have never liked taking the girls on the escalator, more so if I am pushing their stroller, I will always opt to take the elevator. Escalators are like a moving disaster waiting to happen.

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 - personalized unique gifts

I have always enjoyed decorating my children’s room as there are so many creative ways to do it up. I normally go for a Princess theme as that seems to go down well with the girls. Recently, I came across Vision Bedding which offers personalized photo gifts. You can turn your pictures and digital images into wonderful works of art.

Using the latest production technology, your favourite picture is specially dyed into a photo blanket, photo bedding or photo pillow. Imagine having your bed linen with pictures of your children’s happy faces. I know these unique gifts will be truly appreciated as a Christmas present. It’s like going to sleep with your most favourite people every day.

You can even design what you want online. I am so excited about this new discovery and am going to start ordering my Christmas presents now. I could not find anything as unique and special as this.

updates on the girls

It has been awhile since i updated anything on the girls except for 'humpty dumpty had a great fall'! Lots of things have been happening and to top it all, I could not access blogspot in my office, so I could not blog hop as almost everyone has a blogspot account. Darn!

Rowena turns 17 months on Tuesday and she has been progressing real well. Her vocabulary has increased and I remember that at 16 months, Harvynna too started speaking more too. Her hair has grown (thank God) and is a real bundle of Joy. She has moved to Level 4 in Gymboree and loves the class. The thing is that she is very hyperactive now and climbs everywhere (hence the fall), runs everywhere and flashed her smile at you when you are angry.

I must go back to count how many teeth she has as they are not growing in order. I see one or 2 at the back, one or 2 in the middle somewhere.

Rowena understands us very well now and follows instruction to a T. When instructed, she will put her clothes in the laundry basket, pick up toys and put it in the toy box, go to her room at bedtime, feed her baby (doll). She can point to most parts of her body

She has got this 'nasal' voice when she talks and it sounds really cute. So I keep asking her to say all the words she can like:

cake (sounds more like kek)

box (sounds more like bok)


bus (sounds more like bah)

bun (also sounds like bah)

bread (sound like bed)



kitika (refers to one of the girls at the babysitters)



bobo (refers to diaper)

poo poo

pee pee


tota (refers to toyota)

bag (sounds more like back)

I keep asking her to say those words like a drill as I get a kick from listening to her nasal voice. Even Harvynna will ask her to do the drill.

Harvynna on the other hand is getting more matured. She talks more like an adult.

I started her on the Keyword series and has completed the first book. I have to crack my head to keep her occupied as she keeps asking for 'activities' to do.

Its fun to see the 2 of them playing together. At least with 2 girls, they can have cooking sessions, dress up sessions together.

Rowena fell down and bumped her crown

Poor Rowie. She is just so hyperactive these days. She climbs up the cot rails, she climbs up the sofa, she climbs onto any chair she sees, she climbs up the grill in our house - our little monkey girl.

On sunday night, while the 2 of them were monkeying around on their bed trying to grab some books, in a mere split second, as I turned to look at Harvynna, Rowena was on the floor, and her forehead hit the ground. She paused for a few seconds before she wailed and I noticed that there was a huge bump on her forehead. i was so terrified, she cried and cried and Harvynna cried too as I could not finish reading her book!!! That was till she saw the bump on Rowena's head and she too was concerned. Luckily, the bump subsided overnight (hubs put some ice on her head)

I think I need to fully pad up my house now. I have this phobia whenever Rowena is at the edge of the bed now.

Gac fruit for your skin

The rising cost of maintaining a youthful look is astonishing. Once you hit your 30’s everyone will be talking about wrinkles, saggy skin and the list goes on. Some of the products recommended to maintain the youthful look have many harmful chemicals in them and it can be quite disastrous to your skin in the long run. I am one who strongly believes in natural products, as it is gentle to the skin plus it protects the skin against damaging free radicals.

I was recently introduced to Gac fruit, a tropical superfruit with a rich history of medicinal use in Asian households. R.G. Skin Revitalizer is a fountain of antioxidants that supports skin health. Gac is a bright red fruit that grows as large as a cantaloupe. Beta-carotene, a natural carotenoid antioxidant found abundantly in gac fruit, helps boost the immune system and assists the skin’s cellular rejuvenation process. Carotenoids as plant pigments work as protection of the plant against excess sunlight, which is Asian women’s biggest enemy. As a result, their nutritional value is essential to healthy skin. The Gac oil is absorbed very easily by the body. The unique thing about Gac is it works from the ‘inside out’ and complements topical skin care regimen.

Bright future for kids

This is a sponsored post

As everyone knows, I am currently actively searching for some good schools for Harvynna as she will be turning 4 next year. With so many different types of programmes available these days, it can be really hard making a decision. During my search, I came across Score Learning centers. This Innovative Tutor helps children ages 4 to 14 make significant academic progress in an innovative tutoring environment. What makes Score Learning Centers great is that they inject a lot of fun into their programmes.This is exactly what I am looking for.
