Junpig 语录

Junpig: mummy how many years old are you now? 35 or 36?
Cj: 36
Junpig: but your birthday haven’t over leh, you should be 35 lah.

Omfgz that distinct singlish grammar and that calculative attitude towards age! 我真的是”打不累大汗”!

Happy new year!!


Happy new year, every birdie!!

2014 has certainly been a year of change for me. New job, new baby, new car, new camera and a new post-baby body that i still struggle to come to terms with >.< Here's a little conversation I had with junpig 5 minutes ago.. Cj: 妈咪要带妹妹出去,把她卖掉。 Junpig: 不可用!因为妹妹是我的 LOVE!

Strike a pose



I snapped a few pictures of the twins playing with their new tote bags sewn with quilted cotton. When reviewing the photos I realised that my little junpig 拍照真的很有 FEEL! so I cropped out Mupig from the pics and added random effects XD

Arachnoid cyst :: latest scan


Brave young man went for his third mri on 27 Nov. It was the first time he tried it without GA. Although it was a success, he was totally traumatised by the injections and said he does not want to do anymore mri because “打针很痛” (injection hurts) T.T

It was much longer than I had expected. Internet, YOU LIED TO ME. Internet said that it would take about 20 minutes? But it sounded too good to be true so i was mentally prepared for maybe 30 or 40 minutes but the whole ordeal actually took 1.5 hours.

No wonder I felt like dying. Not being a sissy but I was standing throughout and had to bend my body so that I could reach into the tunnel to comfort the poor young man >.<

The review with neurosurgeon was on 17 Dec. As you've probably seen from the image above. The cyst is still the same.

Mupig's condition is now stabilised. It has not gotten worse. We have been very blessed and i hope and pray that he will continue to be well in the many years to come.

The great realization

Yesterday was somewhat special. It was the year – end concert for the twins’ school. All of us were terribly excited about it because they might be five years old but it was their first time on stage! (Remember how often they used to suffer from hfmd? They “happened to” contract it around last year’s event and we had to give it a miss)

While other mothers were quietly wiping away their tears of pride when seeing their little ones perform on stage, I was struggling to contain the gush of emotions when the biggest realization of the day hit me hard.


Yes, we do not have a single decent video or photo of the boys on the stage because the camera was such a piece of crap.

Should have just focused on enjoying the whole performance instead of struggling with the camera (it was a lost cause anyway. . )


Anyways, here’s ending with a totally irrelevant photo of my shoes. Happy Sunday!

奶奶 to the rescue!

junpig: i want mummy to buy me a pet
cJ: but mummy does not have enough money. let’s ask papa to buy ok?
junpig: but i want mummy to buy..
cJ: but mummy cannot buy for you..
junpig: *starting to throw tantrums and kick his legs around*
mupig: don’t fight!~ ask 奶奶 to buy OK?

share or you become greedy

boys were playing when apparently mupig became displeased because junpig refused to share.

mupig: miao miao! you must share! or you will become greedy OK!

feeling blessed


although many people have warned me against having another boy (as if i can decide the gender..) i do not really mind having another boy because of how easy the twins have been 🙂

yes, they do drive me crazy with their incessant whining (on bad days) and give me bad headaches with their loud conversations and singing (everyday). but i’m glad that they’re not rough (they don’t bite, don’t hit each other), they’re not demanding (they’re really used to not getting what they want LOL), and they are loving (when i look upset, they immediately rush forward to offer pats and kisses).

mupig is also the most loving elder twin i’ve seen. when we were having dinner at a tze char stall one night, junpig was having trouble finishing his food, so my mil took the LAST PIECE of gu lu rou on junpig’s plate and offered it to mupig. mupig looked interested but did not eat it. instead, he looked at junpig and asked “miao miao, do you want?” and only ate the piece of meat after his brother replied “no, i don’t want this.

whereas most children demand instant gratification, i have trained the pigs to wait for the things they want. the amount of junk toys they’ve accumulated really pisses me off so i do not really like to let them play with new toys. as a delay tactic, i promised the pigs to let them play with their new toys from Shinagawa Aquarium (we bought these last July, so they waited a freaking 17 months to open these toys X’D!) on Christmas Day 2013.

they kept their promise by not opening the toys, so i kept my promise by letting them unbox the toys this christmas :’D

on boxing day, mupig suddenly remembered some new toys and asked me if he could play with them. i told him that he could only play with the new toys when we throw out some old ones and HE ACTUALLY NODDED AND SAID “OKAY, MUMMY”

i thank god everyday for blessing me with these children. and i hope they stay innocent for as long as possible.. and be loving and healthy and happy all the time 🙂
