sunriseinsabah1

while the rest were still in dreamland after 3 days of intense holidaying, i woke up early to try to catch the sunrise.
i said try because although i set my alarm to 6am, the sky was already quite bright.
but the jetty was serene. the sound of the waves, the smell of the sea and the coolness of the morning dew.
there seems to be a calming effect to all this. i just wished that the moment would last longer.

bottoms up

a year older, she’s used to holding her bottle while drinking milk. although she is still on breast milk, we are slowing weaning her off. she tends to look for her mom every night for her fix.

our winning streak continues as we notched another win. for the first time, footsie fc players have to wake up early on a sunday morning for football.
but it was worth it as we won 2-1 against the Tanjong Katong Tech Sch Alumni, who were more than a match for us. we took our chances well, although some of us were guilty of a few sitters :)

but, it really doesn’t matter as we run out eventual winners. goals were scored by nazfarah in the 34 mins and fadz in the 55 mins. more pictures in flickr.

the coldplay concert in singapore, what can I say? perhaps the best concert in singapore for 2009.

this sight greeted me when the elevator door opened on thursday night when i reached home.

POTD-1-3

i was so excited, i ran tottered (wearing high heels and carrying shopping bags, mah) as quickly as i could to call aniq who was home with his daddy and sister.

he’d already seen them, but i hadn’t, so we all went out again to coo at the basket of furry felines.

“see, the baby kitten is drinking milk from the mummy cat,” i said.

“same! like mummy and baby auni!”, he pointed out.

“yes, same,” i beamed at him.

see how both babies’ paws are positioned. uncanny. heh.

i was telling the husband that the mummy cat looked so… tired, from the demands of motherhood. there was another kitten snuggled up under her, so i could empathise how she must be feeling, with two little ones to care for and nourish.

oh, and i also wondered – where the heck is the daddy cat, eh? hmm.

aniq has this nightly routine of drinking milk and reading of storybooks before he sleeps.
he either gets his mum or me to do it, without this routine its rather difficult to get him to sleep unless he is very tired and sleepy at the same time.
