To prevent Piggy from ending up in the plate of curry, Ash distracted him with a little photo taking.

"Sniff, sniff...What can it be?" Pooh wondered.

So yesterday morning, without missing a beat, he got out of bed, went to wake the princess dowager up.
First, he had to tackle her whining and whimpering around on her bed.
Next, he had to clench his teeth through the dowager's S...L...O...W... move to get herself showered and dressed for school.
After that, he had to constantly beg her to get her breakfast down into her tummy before it was too late. At that moment, he could no longer suppress his frustration so here it went...
SP,"Quick lah!!! Going to be six o'clock already, later you miss the school bus."
Ash," orh..." Looking very tired and trying her best to eat a little faster.
SP,"Faster can or not?"
Ash,"..." eyes droopy and almost nodding off to dreamland.
SP looked at his watch to check the time again...
Eyes on wall clock....4AM !!
Eyes on TV's clock...4AM!!!
SP,"Sorry, Ash... it's only 4 am. I woke you up too early. Go back to sleep after you finish your food,"
Ahem... So the human alarm clock will also can be dysfunctional.
This morning, the human alarm clock woke up.
He went to princess dowager's room to wake her up and was greeted with...
"Daddy, is it too early still?"

I have decided to give them out for free since no one is willing to pay for them.
Leave your name and url in the comments area and I will pick then lucky ones.
Hope there will be some responses.
4 lucky gals have been announced HERE!
Of all other bloggers who have very good and interersting blogs.
Have always loved to go visit some of their blogs and always leaving feeling inspired by their many craft projects but yet feeling a little upset that I cannot give others the same kind of feel with my blog.
That also explains the low traffic and almost zero comments.
Anyway, here are some interesting blogs that I always visit and I thought it will be good to share with whoever is reading.
1. Angry Chicken
- I just ordered her book from an Amazon Spree and can't wait for it to arrive.
2. All Sorts
4. Dreaming Reality
- She is funny and I think the only one who supports my handiwork. Thank you.
5. Once upon a time
6. Matt and Becky
There are more which I will list next time.
Now... will anyone please share with me how to improve my blog?

Just the kind which tries to summarise everything but not making a good effort at it.
Let's start with the sick baby...
(She has finally rolled out of my arms to the bed so I can make a run to the bathroom.)
As mentioned in earlier post that Aver had fever. The fever stayed for another day, that was Saturday. Since we do not have any fever medication for her, we went to the doc. However, our little friend did not have any other symptoms so we got the fever medication and runny nose medication (cos I mentioned something about her having a stuffy nose).
So Aver and myself was on house arrest for the weekend while Superpig and Ash went about the weekend activities. Fever went away but a sore throat seems to set in. Aver started to feel extremely grouchy and uncomfortable. She refused to swallow her saliva so we were like catching her saliva all the time.
Due to extreme discomfort, she had little sleep and hence I had little sleep.
Today marks the fourth day of "no-sleep" days and also she started to sound very sore at the throat. Coughing sets in with traces of phlegm and the fever came back. Hopefully, this evening we can go back to the doc for another review (that is if Superpig allows).
(While she sleeps, I tried to work but really couldn't do much as she kept waking up due to discomfort.)
My neighbour approached me last week to tutor her daughter in "O" level mathematics. I scored a tremendous A2 then and has supreme interest in the subject but still that is all history. So I was a little apprehensive in accepting the job. Somehow, this little voice in me told me that with a little brushing up, I should be able to do it.
So I took the job but charge at a very cheap rate and told my neighbour that if she can find a more qualified tutor she should go ahead and hire him/her.
Job started yesterday and it went sort of well...
that is because of the sick baby. She is stuck to me and hence there is no way I can get anything done at all.
(My 5-minutes lunch which will need to be cleared.)
Although I have a new job, I have not quit my original.
So I need to find time to complete my work...
(Here they are waiting patiently to start work.)
And I will leave you with her usual curious nature, digging into her bag of change.

Our ex cell group couple is having a house warming this weekend so there is a need to prepare a gift. Since I like to use my hands to create gifts for my friends rather than to buy commercial produced gifts. So I searched the internet for a suitable crochet pattern and found this crochet cross. I am not totally satisfied with the end product as it is kind of wonky. Hence, I will be making another better one.

Aver woke up from her afternoon nap with a fever. It ran at 39 degrees with no other symptoms. The only thing I can do is to summon Superpig home so that if we need to go to the doctor he can drive up there. Since there are no other ailments, we just can only keep her cool and wait.
As for what I got for him... Nothing! Well, his will come later... a HTC Dual (once his contract ends at the end of this month).

Once we were all up and about, we got ourself busied with preparation for the day's visiting.
Aver enjoyed herself crazy by getting all her uncles and aunties to "walk" her. Ash slipped and fell hitting her arms on the coffee table so she was tearful for about 5 minutes.
Overall, the day went well and ended with all of us ultra tired.
So on Thursdays, after reporting at my school for a few hours, I will head to Plaza Singapura for a little "me" time.
After the "me" time, I will head towards Ash's school... that is where my exercise will begin.
"The stairway to Heaven..."
The photo is not well taken... will try to take another one next week.
She was on one week worth of antibiotics and we had been dilligently feeding her that and applying the neccessary cream.
We must thank the Lord for his healing mercy on Aver... let me explain why.
Two weeks ago, we were getting worried of her red pus producing rash and we were discussing when we should go back to the paed. However, there was this nagging voice in me that told me otherwise. I was not comfortable going back to the paed again as he is not a skin specialist. The nagging voice kept urging me to bring Aver to the specialist.
When we finally decided to go to the government clinic for a referral letter, the night before Aver scratched her face till it bled quite badly. When we had the referral, it was for an appointment at National Skin Centre in March. However, the nagging voice came in and told me to bring forward the date. So we asked the lady for an earlier date, she said that for National Skin Centre, March was the earliest unless we don't mind going to Changi Hospital. Since Changi Hospital has the skin specialist clinic, we decided to go for it. The lady made a call and we had an appointment made for the next day. So I can only say that God was leading us through this whole proccess.
Then the doctor at the clinic was very nice and patient. She was very detailed in assessing Aver's condition. We have to thank God for sending us to such a good doctor too.
And for the medication, we have to thank God for allowing Aver to take her medication well with no fuss and hassle at all.
Lastly, we prayed daily for God's healing mercy to be on Aver and you can see for yourself that her rashes cleared up very well in just one week.
And at 7 February 2008...
Praise the Lord!
