Cavan choose to be a Tiger this year. Last year he had fun being a crocodile.
We kept it simple. I googled and found a tiger face template. My colleague Alicia helped me to draw it out on a paper plate. Cool yeah, her drawing is nice! Cavan helped to color in the mask. I then stuck the whiskers in for him, tied a few rubber bands and voila! the mask is done! :)
We even made a tail!! hehehehe...... Forgot to purchase manila card to make the body. Thus face and tail will do for now :p
The day itself, Cavan refuse to let me take a picture of him. He wore orange t-shirt as it's non-uniform day due to Theme Day and dark blue jeans. He carried his mask with the tail pinned on behind his pants. Cutie cute! :)

After checking out few restaurant, we decided to make reservations at Pan Pacific Hotel Glenmarie. The environment was superb! We reached there on time and were seated and served. However after being served our entry, problems start surfacing. The wait for our mains was long. When it did came, it was the wrong mains they served. Not even a single apology came!!
During the wait, we checked out other couples and boy some of them really do dress up for the occasion. Guys on tux, ladies on dresses. Some even brought bouquet of roses, box of chocolate ~ basically all the works for Valentine's Day! :)
Despite the awful wait and wrong mains served, I did have a memorable night out as I can still remember clearly the clear soup that was served had tiny tofus in it. It was no ordinary tofu buy tiny heart shaped tofu!! Cutie cute as a ladybug!! :p
There it was both positive and negative in a way where we did enjoy some part of the date :)

Behold!! for Alice has invaded Mid Valley with Wonderland! :)
These are all part of the promotional campaign in conjuction with the movie Alice in Wonderland where we see Alice now grown up falling into the rabbit hole again. Her mission this time is to overthrow the Red Queen with the help of her wonderland friends.
Luckily enough, the heavy rain that started in the afternoon stopped and the floor drying up well ahead before the troupe came to perform.
From my unit's window I only saw one lion. Was saying to myself "ooh this year cut cost" as usually we have two lions and in one of the year, even had a dragon dance! Little did I know that in fact this year we had five, yes 5 lions!! and a dragon!!
This year is the first time Cavan come across the guy with the masked known as "big head monk". He's afraid of him hehehe... Guess the mask does not emit "friendliness" :)
Once Cavan caught a glimpse of the big head monk, he will dart and sprint out! Thus for this year's performance, Cavan, myself and Caden watched the performance from the top of a slide at the playground opposite. Nice view tho as we are so high up we can see everything! not to mention we enjoyed the cool breeze.
Hubby had fun capturing pics of the lions. Even managed to get a gold!! (orange la.. :p) The performance was rather long this year. We didnt even stay for the dragon dance as we were rushing for our chap goh meh dinner.

This was one of my childhood past time game which I introduced to Cavan when we bought some cockle shells the day we cooked curry mee at home.
Placed some shells in a pail and sit patiently and wait for the cockle shells to open its clam. Meanwhile prepare a rafia string. This will be used to "fish" the shells out. Important not to shake or move the pail that contains the shells for they wont open their clam if movement is felt.
Patience paid off. Peace to you and the shell for Cavan did managed to "fish" it out!! :)

Well, have you or have you not spotted the difference and wonder why my mum is laughing??
The story behind the pic and laughter ~
Cavan gave Caden the balloon which to our surprised Caden held it tightly. Mum got our attention and we found it cute of him holding the balloon and thus out came the camera.
Took a shot and found the setting is wrong. As it was SLR that we grabbed, we needed to adjust the setting. When we are ready for the 2nd shot, mum was laughing loudly. It wasnt until after we shot the 2nd picture that we realised what's my mum was laughing at!!
So have you spotted it??
Yep! Caden is no longer holding the balloon with his fingers but with his TOES!! All of us had no idea how he ended up getting his toes to hold the balloon! hehehehe.....

On my way back home on Jalan Damansara (passed TTDI's market) heading Bandar Utama direction when an oil tanker, YES!! an Oil Tanker!!! bumped and grazed my car!! Tat fella's reason was "there's another lorry on my left that cut into my lane, thus I cut into yours". Well, Hello!!! it's still not a good reason fren.
Hate going to the police station to file the report and all the unnecessary pain one has to go through to get the insurance claim approved, sent car for repair and being "car-less" for days!! It's such a hassle.
Although the accident happend on 23 Feb 2010 (CNY has not even ended!!), at this point of writing today, my car has not gone thru the cosmetic surgery!! It's such a pain in the *ss filling for 3rd party claim!! I've been pestering the Honda's personnel servicing my claim to get the insurer's approval and hopefully this weekend my car is going to get it's much needed cosmetic make over!
Hubby's younger sister and family was back for CNY. The kids had a blast playing together. I took the opportunity to snap their pics since they are all in my room :)
Ethan, Cavan, Caden, Eunice & Eugene
Look closely and you'll notice that it's all boys and only one gal! Princess amongst the Princes :) Missing another 2 Prince (Wayne and Wyeli) from youngest sister as they were not around that time.
In total my in-laws have 1 Princess and 6 Princes!!!
