weekend at the golf club

Sponsored Post

KLGCC is a special place. It’s where my family has our usual weekend breakfast, it’s where our favourite restaurants are, and it’s a place I used to go as a child to watch my dad practise his golf. And the most special of all, it’s the place where my dad gave me away to the love of my life, on my wedding day.

One thing about this place is that it’s just so breathtakingly beautiful. The greenery, the poolside, the food, just that you have to make sure no golf balls come flying your way!

So I was thrilled to find out that one of the coolest family fun events is about to happen THIS WEEKEND there; the Sime Darby LPGA Malaysia 2014 event.

Ok fine, so it didn’t catch my attention because of the golfing part. Hehe. I mean, I’m sure it’s pretty amazing to line up 75 top female golf players in the world in one place, and even cooler to watch them win one of the biggest prize money in Asia…. if you’re a golfer, that is.

But meeee… I’m into hawker food!! And that’s exactly what they will have there… AND LOTS MORE.

So this isn’t just a golf tournament. This is a whole weekend of family fun and all for a good cause towards Cancer Research Initiatives Foundation (CARIF) as proceeds will go to this organisation.

So my girlfriends came over today to gush over Daniel. Daniel was not amused with the 6 pairs of girly eyes staring at him. He’s still the same clingy child, hugging my leg and burying his face into my neck in crowded places. But once he warms up and just observes a little longer, he starts to say things and if you’re lucky he’ll even comb your hair. -___-“ Oh my manly son.

My friends were teaching Daniel eyes, nose, mouth, etc. And tickling his tummy and he loved it. Whenever I enunciate with him and try to get him to repeat after me, he usually has his moods. Some days he will oblige and say “Door” and “Fish” and “Mickey” and whatever I tell him to repeat. But there are days when he just looks at me and tilts his head sideways with a big smile… then he twirls. And I wonder why people think he’s a girl.

Anyway, they were telling about this baby that famous blogger XiaXue has who is soooo smart and can finish your sentences and everything. Blood rushed to my head. What do you mean he can finish your sentences, what genius baby is this?! Apparently she’s a super hands-on mom who reads to the baby and talks to the baby until he can pick up stuff really quickly. He even says Hippopotamus. Daniel can’t even say Dog.

“But guys look, Daniel can eat by himself,” I pointed out as my son smears cupcake icing all over his mouth. “See, so smart too!”

They nodded politely.

“But you know, all babies are different. So whatever, I’ll let Daniel grow in his own time….”

 As soon as they left, I turned to Daniel and held him by the shoulders.

“Ok Daniel, let’s do this,” I say seriously. “HIP-PO-PO-TA-MUS. Go on, say it. It’s not that hard. Come on…. HIP-PO-PO-TA-MUS.”

What does he do?

He tilts his head and twirls.

Ok fine, so first day fail. Sokay guys, gimme a week or so. I’ll get Daniel to even spell the word. *rolls sleeves, cracks knuckles*

Just one of those days I wanted to wear all black. With this pregnancy, I seem to gravitate towards black A LOT, don’t know why.

Oh, and I’m also wearing the new dUCk jersey scarf in black. We are launching a few colours on FV tomorrow (Thursday) so get yours! I just love how it stays on so easily and the fabric just feels so comfortable. Feel it for yourself! :)

Wearing metallic sweater from Haflins and scarf from dUCk, both at FashionValet. Bag from Dior, shoes from Zara.

he’s a boy ok?!

Guys, do you think Daniel looks like a girl?

Two people, TWO… came up to me and asked how old my daughter was. Wanted to pull their hair really hard, but I decided a polite smile was enough. Plus, they probably could hear my racing heartbeat and boiling blood.

A girl! Sheesh man.

He wore this today.

A blue sweater (with a very scary tiger on it, it’s very manly), black track pants, and navy blue shoes.

WHERE DO YOU SEE THE PINK AND BRAIDS AND BOWS AND LONG HAIR?!

A girl!

Hmpphhhhhh!!!

In the cab on the way home, the cab driver looked back and said “Oh my, your baby is so cute. Is it a boy or a girl?”

WHAT?!!!!!

The polite smile came out as a reflex. “A boy,” I said through gritted teeth.

He laughed and said, “Oh! He looks like a girl!”

*jaw drops to floor*

So. Rude. You look like a girl, you!

At home as I took off Daniel’s shoes and socks, I said to him, “I’m shaving you bald tomorrow, Daniel.”
