Dog and Water Fight

Belle, our 10 months old pet dog love chasing after golf ball and she heart them so much!  So much that when she wants to bite something, she tend to forget that the golf ball is still in her mouth.   And her biggest enemy is the water.  Whenever we water the garden, she will come charging at the water and tried to bite it (with the golf ball still in her mouth!) LOL!  Good thing is she won’t chew our  designer upholstery fabric sofa.

There is one thing that I don’t understand about Belle.  She loves to jump on us.  I was told that Belle spent too much time in her cage and is lack of obedience.  Hence the moment we let her roam, she tend to jump on us.  *shrug*

But generally, cocker spaniel is regarded to be more active.  No?

Bento #100 – All Things Sweet

Left to right: Marshmallows, grapes, cold cut ham and cookies

Wow, this is my #100 posts on Bento!  As you can see, most of the Bento posted here is for my two older children age 9 and 11 years old.  I do make bento lunches for the Little Munchkin who is 6 but usually they are not in the presentable form to be photograph and blog!  The Little Munchkin is very fussy when come to food.  She eats very limited type of food and dislike greens.  For me, bento without green is very difficult to assemble!  It can be done, but like I’ve just said, they are not so presentable.  Somehow with the type of food available in my fridge, I managed to come out something nice for her this time.

Baby Alive

While loitering around the airport during our recent holiday trip to Bali (will blog later) Minka Aire, we was fascinated by this new toy called “Baby Alive”.  They are made to react to touches, call out for attention and is able to drink and wet! After months of pestering by the Little Munchkin, finally Daddy bought one that says:  “I Drink and Wet”.

The set came with a toothbrush, toothpaste, biscuit, a real drinking bottle(!!!) and a real disposable diaper (!!!).  This is where the fun is.  Just simply fill bottle with juices, milk or any liquid.  Feed the bottle to the doll.  You will be surprised to see that the tongue actually retract and liquid goes in through the mouth and out it goes to the diaper.

As we did not have a spare diaper, I refrained the Little Munchkin to feed the doll any liquid.  Maybe will tailor made a cloth nappy.  That way, we can wash and reuse. Another way to save the diaper is to removed the diaper and sat the doll in the basin.  But I won’t encourage anything like that.  You know, it is not very appropriate to feed a baby naked while sitting in the basin. We don’t do that in real life, so we better not do that even if they are unreal.  Kids tend to pick up thing very fast.

The only thing the doll doesn’t do is poo and making sound.  Well, if you want ‘her’ to poo, try feeding ‘her’ some yellowish liquid.  That is the closest to poo colour *wink*.  There are a few version of Baby Alive in the market.  Little Munchkin preferred the one that “bounces and babbles”.  When we first saw it, the doll was bouncing in her crib and making gurgling baby noises.  Daddy made a bad choice this time or else we would have request him to get one that is more interesting. Lesson to learn – kids doesn’t like anything quiet.

The Little Munchkin actually commented:  “Mummy, the YouTube bluff people wan.  How come my Baby Alive can’t talk.” Call this a technology advancement or what?

Which Is Better?

Without fringe or with fringe?

This little cupcake of mine loved to get a haircut.  Whenever someone is getting a haircut, she will want one too.  If I did not managed to persuade her, the most she will get a little trimming here or there just to stop her persuasion.  Oh, don’t let me start on how persuasive she can become (No pun intended but all the verb, noun, adjective is out lol).

Few days ago when Kor-Kor was due for a haircut, little cupcake turned into her usual broken record and irritate the hell out of me!  Then it got me thinking that it’s been a while since she is spotted with a short hair.  But the girl wants more! She wanted a fringe too.  So there she goes, shoulder length and a fringe.

If you were to ask me, I’ll definitely say “without fringe” 😉
