'Tis The Season To Have Babies: 27


So so so ... there is another baby in da house yo!

Say Hi to Skyla Yun McLaughlin.

She is a doll. An absolute doll. The first time I met her was a month ago and she was a porcelain doll asleep in the pram. So serene, so tranquil, so precious. Here she is in the butterfly chair, pretty much like the first time I saw her.

It’s great that there are more babies being added to my generation of the family. I still remember the days when we were Shea’s age and would hang out at my grandmother’s house in Serangoon. Children, I’m sure ... weren’t anywhere on our minds 20 years ago. Has it been 20 years?!?! Yup. 20 years.

Sandy Lam Said HI To ME!!!


Miss Metallica/Pearl Jam/Iron Maiden/Nirvana T-shirt went for a Chinese concert.

My FIRST Chinese concert (the Chinese orchestra ones during Nanyang days don't count, thank you.) and I'm so glad it was a Sandy Lam concert! Woo Hoo!

I'm not going to give reviews or anything about the concert except:

  1. The tickets were compliments of my brother. So thank you Singtel MIO.
  2. Sandy Lam is a GREAT vocalist!!!
  3. The video wall design was UNREAL and absolutely blew me away.
  4. I only knew 3 songs in the whole concert (which included ""愛上一個不回家的人" and 2 others which I will only know when I hear it again) but I totally enjoyed myself.
  5. When I turn 42, I am going to ask Kim Robinson if he would cut my plebeian hair and make me as gorgeous as Sandy Lam. Donations, however small are most welcome ... starting now. Oh, I accept Paypal.

For the hard core music review stuff ... I'm sure it'll be out in the news soon. Here are some pictures from 26 rows AMSL (above mean STAGE level).

Now time for sideshow news.

My extremely obliging sister took photos with me and the very precious tickets. I just can't conceal my excitement! However, her mood went from superb to disinterested to rolling her eyes. I know, I know ... I took my sister's goodwill (and good mood) too far. At photo #29, I finally got the point.

The most essential item one needs when going to a concert is the lightstick! I contemplated bringing some of the break-and-shake glow sticks because aren't they de rigeur?

Well, luckily we ran out of them at home ... I would have been a complete dunce if I had brought them. Everyone there had light sabers! They weren't just boring Star Wars fluorescent tubes, but actually LED lights that flicker and changes colour! I was fascinated by a group of ardent fans who had RETRACTABLE light popsicles. Yes, you read me right ... RETRACTABLE! For the quick dancy tracks, they pulled it out to its full golf umbrella length glory and pounded it in time with the tempo. For the dreamy ballads, they reduced it to an arm length phallic looking device that drew rainbows in the dark, as far as their arms could reach.

Not to be outdone, I bought a pair of blue air traffic control light tubes for $10 from the roadside vendors. These must be the best investments I've ever made in concert-going history! It made Sandy say HI to me! ME! ME! ME! Even my sister will vouch for it!

Sandy (yes, on first name basis now that we are such chummies) waved at my section of the crowd. As I was the only one with a light stick on the upper block, she said "Shang Mian De Peng You, Ni Hao!" and she was referring to me! ME ME ME! Of which, I screamed in reply "Wo Hen Hao!" OMG OMG OMG! I am a gushing groupie all over again ...

Sandy said HI to ME!!

Somebody's car will be Cantopop filled for the next 2 months ... heh heh heh.

Project Superstar Cousins!


Our family's so huge that the tech-savvy ones use my blog as a lost & found. Most members of the family use my house as the headquarters of celebrations, deliberations and CNY visits. And if I can't even be the new FAMILY CENTRAL, who else can?

So here's Jia Xyn, Zi Yi & Jia Yen!

And yes, they are twins!
I want twins too!!! It's hereditary!!!

Note: the excessive use of exclamation marks is a ripple effect of the previous post.
