My friend, Angie

Our cell group had a combined pot bless with another cell group. We went to Aunty Lee Meng's house for pot bless. I met a new friend by the name of Angie. I loved her so much. She was so obedient and friendly. Her strength is photo taking. Come see me and my cousins with her.

Batik Painting

Kor Kor and I love doing arts and crafts or painting.

Quite some time ago, Mami bought these Batik Painting materials from a SandArt stall from Jusco, Ipoh. The stall is near the Guardian or Bata Shoplots. It cost RM13.00 per piece. Suitable for ages 3 and above. It comes with a tube of watery paint and a paint brush.

This is mine

This is Kor Kor's

It took us about an hour to complete this batik painting. It is really very easy. Quite mess free, suitable to keep us busy during this school holidays. Mami would be looking for this in KL so that we can do more of this at home. Otherwise, we would have to travel back to Ipoh to buy this.

Here are more pictures to share.

Batik Painting - in the making.......





My final MASTERPIECE

Benjamin Kor Kor's masterpiece

Mami is not sure what she will do with these masterpieces. We shall wait and see....

My Masterpiece

Mami commented that I have good colouring skills for a 4 years old boy.

Mami, Kor Kor and I have been exposed to the Plants versus Zombies game recently by Dadi. We love the game. It was drawing time for us yesterday, and I decided to draw the sunflower as seen from the game. Mami had to draw the sunflower for me. I then coloured the picture. I was so proud of the picture till I hung it on my room door.

My Little Excuse : Afraid of Monster

I had my music lesson last night. Mami was looking forward for yesterday to see if I would cry in Yamaha Class again when I am called out to sing. What do you think?

Yes, I cried again. I just could not hold on to my tears. My teacher was understanding enough and called another friend to hug me and sang with me. I stopped crying when my friend came out with me to sing.

Did Mami caned me at home? I told Mami that I did sing. Mami said that the deal was to sing alone. So, she wanted to cane me.

I immediately told her "Mami, I want to tell you the truth why I cried. You said that you would not cane me if I tell the truth (this was from other incident when he wanted to lie to me). So, I shall tell you the truth."

Mami replied that she would consider after hearing from me. I said "Mami, I did not want to sing because if I did, the monster would come and eat my friends. Then, there would be no more music class." I also told Mami that I wasn't scared of singing. I feel it is boring to sing. I don't like to sing. I only liked to play the electone.

Dadi heard this conversation in the car on the way home. He said he would give me 100 marks for imagination.

Did Mami caned me in the end? No, she did not. She gave me one last warning and if I ever cry again, she would cane me. She told me that she was disappointed that I lied about the monster. She asked me if I believed that monsters are real and I shaked my head. I knew it was just an excuse and it was a lie. I said sorry and Mami gave me a hug.

Cheeky Me

Mami wanted to take photographs of my cheeky looks. Did not know what "cheeky" meant. So, I tried my best to just smile....

Shy to sing

I am not shy to sing at home, but I am very shy to sing elsewhere.

Mami was very displeased with me yesterday. Perhaps I should use another word instead "displeased". I believe Mami was very angry with me yesterday.

I had my music lesson in Yamaha Music Centre last night. The teacher had already pre-empted us the previous week that we had to sing solo for the song "La-Di-Da", along with the actions. I did know how to sing, but I refused to go out alone to sing in front of all my friends. I ended up crying in class.

At the beginning, Mami comforted me and told me that she would accompany me to the front. She did, but I just could not stop crying. I refused to open my mouth.

My music teacher was so understanding. She hugged me and asked me to sing without doing any actions. I continued to close my mouth as soon as the music started to play.

Mami reminded me that if I continue to cry, I would be caned at home. I understood Mami because I had cried  many times during my music lessons here before. Mami had earlier told me that if I were to cry without any good reasons, she would cane me at home. Most of the time, I would cry due to over sensitivity. Despite me knowing that I would be caned later, I continued crying until the end of the class.

Once we arrived home, Mami caned me once on my left leg. She told me that I would have to continue practising this song at home and would be required to sing this song next week during my music lesson. If I do not sing again, I would be caned again after class. I cried and agreed with her.

I guess Mami caned me because of my stubbornness. This is not the first time singing in front of the class alone. But this time, I just did not want to do so.

My first Lego set

This is my first big boy Lego set. I've always owned Lego Duplos, but this is the first Lego bricks for me.

I chose this set to be my very first collection. Cool leh..... This is my Lego Dino Triceratops Trapper.

I do not want to be an old boy

Yesterday, my Ah Mah came into the bathroom while I was taking my bath. She picked up a few strand of hair and jokingly told me that it was mine. She did not want to admit that it was hers.

I immediately replied her "I do not want to waste my hair. Later I will be an old boy". She laughed and understood what I meant. I would not want my hair to fall off. I associate baldness to being old.

Is exam stress worth it?

My Benjamin Kor Kor is anxious over his exams next week. Meanwhile, I am still happy-go-lucky without any exam stress. Why? Hooray to my preschool! We don't have exams.

Of late, my Kor Kor and I have been playing with our Legos. We love the Dinosaur series which Ah Kim bought for Kor Kor last Christmas. This is what we have been playing with over the past few days at home......


Yesterday, Kor Kor asked Mami if he would receive any presents if he did well in his exams. Mami asked Kor Kor what he wanted and here it is...... the big present which Kor Kor has been dreaming off.


My Kor Kor has expensive taste. It is certainly very expensive. It cost more than RM500.

So, Mami made a deal with him. If Kor Kor managed to get the top 3 of 4 subjects, she would buy this for him. Kor Kor would have to score in BM, English, Maths and Science. If he doesn't, then Kor Kor would have to buy a smaller set of Lego Dinosaur. Kor Kor's alternate selection was this.....


Immediately after Mami's conversation with Kor Kor, I hugged Mami and asked "what about me?" I love to buy one too. Mami said that I would have to wait till Christmas and I told Mami that I really loved the Triceratops Dino Lego. So, I showed Mami the picture of what I wanted.

Shaun Shaun's selection

Mami did not promise me anything, but she said that she may buy if I was willing to sit for an exam prepared by Mami. I asked her if the exam would be an easy exam or difficult one. She replied "It has to be a difficult one because it is an end of year exams".

Sigh....I can't believe that I would have to sit for an examination just to buy this Triceratops Dino Lego.

Mami told me it was up to me to decide. She doesn't mind if I didn't want to take her exams. At least she gets to save her money buying such expensive presents.

Amazing Birthday Party

Kor Kor and I went to the most amazing birthday party on Malaysia Day. My preschool friend, Adam celebrated his 6th birthday at Redbox, Gardens. It was our first experience there. There were lots of balloons, singing and dancing. There was a clown who entertained us with funny jokes and tricks. After two to three hours of fun activities at Redbox, we entered Kids eWorld to play for another hour. It was the most amazing birthday party for Kor Kor and I. Sorry as Mami had forgotten to bring her camera to snap some photos. I would have loved to share them with you.

Toy Soldiers

Last year, I received a set of toy soldiers for my Christmas present from my brother's "Kai Yeh". I was so proud of it till I labelled the box with my name. I had to ensure that it was mine.......and not ...... you know who.

This seems to be one of my Kor Kor's favourite toy. Kor Kor had his own set earlier, but mine was certainly better in terms of variety and quality.

Here is a small photo of my toy soldiers and my toy box.

Mami did not manage to capture all my toy soldiers.
It was scattered everywhere, making it difficult to capture
all in a photo.

Should I, or should I not..

I am turning 5 years old next February. Mami asked me if I wanted to start learning the electone, just like my Kor Kor. Kor Kor started learning the electone when he was 5 years old.

I started attending Yamaha Junior Music Course (JMC) when I was 3 years and 8 months old. I am now in JMC 3. My Kor Kor started his JMC lessons at the age of 4 1/2 and he is now in JXC 3.

A teacher from Yamaha Music teaches my Kor Kor once a week at our home. Kor Kor has been progressing very well since he started. He enjoys the electone very much. I am sure he prefers the electone over the piano.

I am also keen to learn the electone. The electone has fun rhythm and sounds to play with.  I told Mami that I would want to learn the electone too. However, I am not sure because I am fearful that there would be too many songs to practice. After observing my Kor Kor, he has to practice pieces from his Yamaha JXC 3 and his individual electone lessons. It would take him at least one full hour each day to practice all of them. I doubt I can be as discipline as my Kor Kor.

Should I, or should I not?

Colours of Life

Mami has finally completed the painting.

I asked Mami why she painted this for us. She answered "I want to do something with my own hands for my beloved boys. Something that both of you can remember and cherish for the rest of your lifes".

The title of the painting is called "Colours of Life". It is a picture of many different musical expressions. Music has always been very close to the hearts of my Kor Kor and I. We sing, dance and play music together everyday. There is never a moment each day without it.

Presenting.......Colours of Life

A painting just for my brother and I

Some of you would have read my Kor Kor's blog about DIY painting. Mami had started her work on it. Kor Kor was really touched when Mami told us that she wanted to paint this picture as a present for both of us. It has not been easy for Mami to paint this. She has never liked painting, and claimed that she was never good at art during her school days.

This is Mami's first day of painting

3 brushes provided in the set

Kor Kor and I will share with you the final outcome when the painting is completed. I think it would take a while. Mami started being lazy, but she has almost completed it.

Bookfest Malaysia 2012

Dadi and Mami went to Bookfest last week. This is a book fair which Dadi and Mami would go annually. They managed to buy some cheap art and craft materials, stationeries and a few books. They also bought a toy for me to play. These are my favourite that they bought for Kor Kor and I to share.
KorKor and I had other sets of Gigo Junior Engineer
and we simply love play with them.


This is how it looks like after using all the parts provided

It opens like a stand-up calendar

Roller Blading with Cousins

My grandparents and aunty's family came down from Ipoh to spend time together during the Raya holidays. Our main attraction was roller blading. I had lots of fun roller blading and playing in the Jungle Gym. Here are some photos of us roller blading.

This boy needs no introduction.
He is, none other than my Kor Kor

Here I come.....

And here I fall......

See how hardworking my Ku Cheong was....
Teaching my cousin, Joel
