It's Christmas Day 2008, and the wedding day for Uncle Alex and Auntie Hester! Lleyton was up early to head towards Uncle Alex's place to 'help' with the setting up. In actual fact, Daddy & Mummy were the ones helping to set up the place...whilst Lleyton roamed around and cried out for food! By the time 爺爺 arrived, Lleyton was already hot and sweaty, as evident in the photo on the left.
Mummy & Auntie Lingmei couldn't resist the huge turkey wings. They are enormous! The two 'wing-lovers' must have had their hearts' delight.
Next up, was the opening of Christmas gifts. The kids were especially excited. As usual, Lleyton did not conform to the rules. He was holding onto the Weiwei's gift (from Auntie Lingmei), and sitting on her gift by Daddy & Mummy at the same time. Poor Weiwei... who had to wait patiently behind Lleyton.
Amongst his other gifts, Lleyton received a pair of leather shoes from Auntie Lingmei. They look great on him, don't they?

In the past fortnight, Lleyton has learnt how to walk, and he can do it fairly well now. At least that's what he thinks...for he's now starting to get into running!
Now that he's more mobile, Lleyton is demonstrating his full curiosity, as he will climb onto the settee in the living room, bed room side drawers, and any objects that he is able to step onto. Coupled with his ability to hang onto his own weight, has made him attempt to hang on to the dining table, and practise his swinging about!
The lack of video footage on the hazardous acts are regretable, but on most occasions Daddy & Mummy won't be in the mood to take photos, but will be rushing instantly to rescue the boy in distress.
Hopefully, he will soon learn not to worry Daddy & Mummy so much.

Now, a better looking shot...

All was quiet on the road and no shops opened for breakfast at 9am. The pathetic three strolled along with empty stomachs. All a sudden, they chanced upon a coffee shop with many customers. It was the famous Albert Court Prawn Noodles. Without much thought, they settled for a bowl of prawn noodles and some Ngoh Hiong.
After breakfast, they headed back in the direction of home and stopped by Mustafa to look at handphones. The rest of the day was just as planned - a swim and nap in the afternoon followed by dinner (Frogs' Leg porridge) at Lavender Foodcourt.
Daddy asked Mummy out on a date few weeks back to watch a drama last Saturday "The Office Party", which is a romance comedy by The Singapore Repertory Theatre. In its synopsis, it stated: Imagine "The Office" meets "Love Actually"... Sounds good, doesn't it?
Watching drama was something they haven't done in quite awhile. Thinking back, drama was how the two got associated with each other years back. During the intermission, curious Daddy kept asking Mummy if that was indeed what happens at a usual office party (year-end Christmas bash, annual D&D inclusive), Mummy couldn't help but admitted that there are bound to be some scandals during and after the event. (Not at her current workplace though, since they do not even have any bashes for the last 3 years!)
It is undoubtedly a good show but please do not bring your kids along (Advisory: Mature themes - 16 years and above). Catch it to feel the joy of a Christmas party - if your office is not having one!

After several hours of Christmas shopping, Daddy & Mummy wanted a break and a drink. Hence, they proceeded to purchase a large cup ('original' size) of Passion mango, to be shared by both. However, on sighting Daddy taking a sip, Lleyton requested to have a try, and so Daddy obliged. Big mistake! Thereafter, Lleyton refused to let go, and insisted to having it despite several attempts by Daddy & Mummy to explain that he has had enough. Hence, Daddy just let Lleyton hold on to the large drink, whilst Mummy continued shopping.
Daddy estimated that Lleyton gulped down about one-third of the huge cup of passion fruit and mango blend...Naturally, his bowels were very smooth that evening.

Breakfast at the Tuckshoppe along Balestier Road.
Lleyton enjoying his Kaya Toast. Check out his puffy cheeks!
Daddy: "Mummy making another not-so-good attempt at earning a photography award!"
Lleyton: "What is Mummy doing? Why is she taking a photo of the glass?"

Here's a typically stay-at-home-Sunday-afternoon for Lleyton :

The trio stopped early for breakfast to store more energy for the long hike. Lleyton finished off his portion of porridge and the peanut butter sandwich that Mummy prepared. Don't be amazed at the speed he engulfed his food..
