It's too early for Hao Re to know what's actually happening, I guess, he is still too young. My brother, i.e., Hao Re's Jiu-jiu has decided to leave Singapore for good, and to try his luck at Sabah, East Malaysia, where his girl friend and family live. Somehow Hao Re woke up at 6.30am when we were about to leave for the airport, like he knew something was about to happen.
Arrived at the airport at about 7.30am. They checked in, paid for the extra lunguage etc, then we said good bye to them. Hao Re (and us) will surely miss his Jiu-jiu very much, as they are very good friends, Hao Re liked to disturb Jiu-jiu, liked to go to his room and sabotaged his stuff, and Jiu-jiu kept Hao Re accompanied at home, especially when hubby has to work late and I was busy in the kitchen. Our house will be quieter now, and Hao Re has 1 less playmate :-( By the time they meet again, Hao Re should be able to call "Jiu-Jiu" sweetly then :-)

Jiu-jiu, let me help you push the trolley, I can do it!
A goodbye kiss........ so touching!
We left the airport at about 8.15am. Instead of going home, we turned to the East Coast Park. Last week when we visited the park, we didn't try cycling, so we decided to do it. Hao Re enjoyed the ride a lot! We cycled slowly (since I am pregnant) while enjoying the breeze and the view.
Hao Re was most interested in how to ring the bell
Stopped for a walk
Nice day with the blue blue sky, wasn't it?!! Daddy and son enjoyed walking by the beach
Hey, I met a new girl friend (someone we didn't know, the family was sitting next to us)
Hao Re was attracted to this pretty girl because of the BUBBLES!!! He was invited to sit down with the girl
(p/s: The girl is 2 years old and Hao Re is 14 months, doesn't Hao Re looks big......)
We went home after spending at the park for 2 hours or so. Hao Re was so tired by then, and fell asleep after finished his milk during the car ride. While Hao Re was sleeping, I quickly prepared his lunch - porridge with fresh sweet corn kernel and pumpkin. Hao Re loved it very much, and ate 1 and 1/4 bowl of porridge! While for us, my favourite instant noodle (Shin) with lots of vegetables and egg.
How I cook it: Bring the rice to boil, cut out the corn kernel, after rice started to boil, add the corn kernel, continue to boil until rice and corn soften. Add pumpkin (cut into medium size) and then simmer for 10-15 min. Ready to serve! It's very sweet taste, nice!
(p/s: Though he can chew pretty well now, some corn went in his stomach without going through the chewing/biting process, and the poo next day can still "detect" quite a number of the corn kernels in perfect shape :-0)
Then played with him for the next few hours until we went out for our dinner - chilli crab!!!!! Hubby and I have been wanting to have crab since last week. Honestly speaking, with a 14 months old active toddler in tow, we were still able to enjoy our chilli crab, this was considered very good! We gave Hao Re a bowl and a spoon and gave him some vegetables and rice from time to time to keep him occupied. We managed to enjoy our crab until the last piece, when Hao Re started to fuss. I let hubby have the last piece while I brought Hao Re to walk around. We only realised he was actually already tired, because as soon as we got on the car, he requested for milk and fell asleep before we reached home. Yeah, a nice and peaceful night for us :-)
This Sunday was a record for us - didn't go anywhere at all, the car engine was not started at all!!! We stayed home full day. We (or rather, I, as hubby was busy with work. However it definitely made me happier to have him accompanied us at home) were happily playing with Hao Re. I played with him, read with him, watched tv with him, or sometime just let him played on his own. Very happy day :-) And I fixed both lunch and dinner for the three of us! Lunch for Hao Re was egg fried rice (a bit advance for him, ya) and steamed tofu. Dinner for him was same with ours, raddish soup with rice. Today I found that Hao Re was able to drink soup from spoon properly without much leaking. Hao Re went to bed at about 9pm, as he only took 1x nap of 1 hour. In fact, nowadays, he usually only takes 1x nap (around 11am) on the weekends, while during weekdays at school, he still takes 2 naps (without fail, total about 3 hours) everyday. Wonder how could he adjust his biological clock?!?!
Overall, a peaceful, quite but yet, nice weekend!
