Last Few Days of 2012

It's still a working day for me on Boxing day and Christmas this year was different compared to last year and other previous years as I did not get to celebrate it with my mom anymore, including my birthday which she never failed to celebrate with me. 

2012 has been a fruitful year for us, but with my mother's passing on, it was also a very sad one. She suffered almost 2 months in the hospital and it was so heart breaking to see her condition at that time. However, I'm very glad in a way that she no longer had to suffer after being wheelchair bound for 3 years. 

Moving forward, I'm seriously excited about the year to come. 2013 will be exciting for us because a new adventure is going to begin next year and I hope it'll turn out well. Fingers crossed. 

Oh, there will be a little getaway for us this coming weekend. Looking forward to it!!! 

Happy Holiday peeps!

Things that Ziyi says

We were at a shopping mall one day and as usual, I always carry a bottle of water for Ziyi and sometimes some snacks for her too (eg: banana, biscuits, etc). Throughout the day I kept on asking her to drink her water. There was once she answered me when I gave her the water bottle: "Mummy, why you always ask me to drink water, drink water, drink water??!" with the kind of tone I did not expect of her! LOL... My 4.5 years old girl never fail to amaze me with the things she says.

Disturbing Video Clip

I viewed a video that someone posted on FB. It showed how a man scolded and hit the helpless boy, who is only about 5 or 6 years old I guess. I couldn't bring myself to watch it any further after viewing it for the first 1-2 minutes. It was extremely disturbing and it broke my heart seeing the poor helpless boy who could do nothing except cried! I seriously cannot understand how one can be so merciless and cruel at treating their own kids with such abuse.

Honestly, I'm not the kind of person who likes children very much. But I absolutely do not agree with child abuse like the one shown in the video clip. For a tiger mummy (with not much patience) like myself, I do reprimand and take disciplinary action against my own daughter whenever the need arises. At times I felt bad and regret for blowing my top. I pity her when she kena from me but this stubborn and mischievous child needs to be disciplined.

The monkey got so interested in this tu-tu car on display outside a Thai Restaurant and refused to leave until we had to drag her out of the car. LOL

A sleeping child is so angelic :)

Challenges in Disciplining my 4yo

We attended the Parent Teacher meeting 2 Saturdays ago. As expected, Ziyi received lots of compliments from her class & daycare teachers on her academic performance. One new thing to note this round is that Ziyi is the only one in her class who can read her Bahasa books and she can read each and every word that was taught in her class. Well done Ziyi! Mummy and daddy are proud of you. 

Well, then we moved on to her character and behavior in school. This is the part that got me really worried. Her class teacher noticed some changes in her recently. She is so stubborn that she is always keeping quiet whenever someone is talking or questioning her, especially so when she's not in the mood. Sort of like having mood swing. Refusing to apologize to anyone even when the other party said sorry to her first. 

She is only afraid of me thus far. No one else can reprimand her except this tiger mummy. I hate to shout at her but she really leaves me no choice. My lil Ziyi, when will you change? I seriously do not know how to discipline you :(
