Julian at 90 Months

Julian turned 90 months old on 28 November 2014.

As I was driving home with Julian after picking him up from school, I informed him about his piano lesson.
Me: Julian, you don't have piano lesson tonight because your music teacher is sick.
Julian: Yes, I know!
Me: You mean you already knew that there is no lesson?
Julian: Yah!
Me: How did you know?
Julian: It's all in my brain!
Me: ?!?!

As I arrived home with Julian after his music class "prediction", I attempted to park out (normally, if I think I'm first to arrive home, I'd try to park out (at the common parking area) so that the other car can be parked in our allotted parking lot). As I turned around a tight blind corner, I suddenly spotted the other car, i.e. I should have headed straight to our allotted lot.
Me: Ah! Mummy had already parked out!
Julian: Daddyyyyy!
Me: How would I have known Mummy had parked out? I could not see around the bend, could I?!
Julian: It's all in your brain!
Me: ?!?!

Justin at 64 Months

Justin turned 64 months old on 25 November 2014.

As I was tucking Justin into bed one night, he touched my face.
Justin: Is your face oily?
Me: Yes, very oily. We can take a spoon, scrape off the oil, flick it onto the kuali (wok), and fry egg with it.
Justin: *giggles loudly* Why is your face oily?
Me: It's because I put margarine on it!
Justin: *giggles loudly* Why did you put margarine on your face?
Me: To make it oily! *laughs*
Justin: *giggles loudly*

Penang Hop On Hop Off Bus

On 23 November 2014, we took the kids for a ride on the newly launched Penang Hop On Hop Off Bus. During the first week of the launch, rides were free-of-charge.

We decided to wait at the Gurney Plaza stop. Apparently, we were not the only ones who wanted to take advantage of the free rides. The queue was really long. We waited for about 2 hours from about 9.30am before we managed to board the bus. We wanted to give up but the kids insisted, "No, we must not give up." 

We managed to sit on the top deck in a fully air-conditioned coach, not the novel half-open-air-top-deck coach. The kids were happy.

Justin at 63 Months

Walking to the car after lunch, Justin saw some rocks on the curb and said, "Big doggy poo rocks!" Once in his car seat, he said that his car seat is his "office", and he has to work 24 times to get 185 points.

Jianna at 30 Months

Jianna turned 30 months old on 30 September 2014. Here's a recent interesting conversation when Jianna was about to leave for her music class.

Jianna: Who has music class?
Daddy: *decides to throw the question back at her* Who has music class?
Jianna: Me.
Daddy: *decides to play the fool* Oh, me?
Jianna: No! Not you. Me!
Daddy: Oh, not you. Me!
Jianna: *resorting to some quick thinking* No! Jianna has music class!
Daddy: *checkmate, will try to outsmart this girl another time*

Julian at 88 Months

Julian turned 88 months old on 28 September 2014. Here are some noteworthy conversations.

Julian was busy showing me his expertise in Ninja Kaka when all of a sudden he says, "Don't listen to the Devil". Surprised, I asked him to clarify. It turned out that it was something he heard during Sunday mass the day before (Julian is the type who is always fidgety during mass).

Julian conversing (or rather shouting) to a neighbour friend two floors above our unit (for all other neighbours to hear *roll eyes*)...
Friend: Julian!
Julian: Hi! HH kor kor!
Friend: What are you doing?
Julian: Homework! What are you doing?
Friend: Homework also! How much of homework do you have?
Julian: Two pieces!
Friend: OK, Bye!
Julian: Bye!
Julian then turns to me...
Julian: HH kor kor is doing his homework also... strange huh?!
Me: ??!?

[No parking!]


Justin at 62 Months

Justin turned 62 months old on 25 September 2014. Here are some noteworthy conversations.

Julian was trying to do a balancing act, face/tummy down, on a pile of big cushions. Justin, seeing that Julian was wobbling on the pile, said, "You're getting too old for this!"

Conversation in the car with Justin...
Daddy: What would you like to be when you grow up?
Justin: Don't know.
Daddy: Would you like to be a pilot?
Justin: No.
Daddy: A teacher?
Justin: No.
Daddy: A baker? (This was his previous choice)
Justin: No.
Daddy: What about an artist?
Justin: I'm already an artist!
Daddy: ??!?!

Driving unexpectedly into a traffic jam, the following exchange took place...
Justin: You should have taken another way.
Mummy: I didn't know there was going to be a jam.
Justin: Well, I knew.
Mummy: You knew? How come you didn't remind me about it?
Justin: Because it's all in your mind! (goes on laughing almost hysterically)
Shortly after that, Mummy ventured:
Mummy: Justin, what's in your mind?
Justin: A jam!

Me: *rolls eyes*
