4 babies????

Not only are we blessed with baby sienna and lil bro baby KarMie#2, but we actually have 4 babies in total!!! 2 of which are so grown up now...we had them when they were just kids!!! Now they are teenagers...wowww how time flew by...

Let me introduce them. They are angel yunita (13 yrs old) and vinotha maruthupandi (11 yrs old). Angel is from Indonesia and Vinotha is from India. We chose to "adopt" from these 2 countries as its the closest to where me n mr. hubby originated from. We couldn't find any child to sponsor from Malaysia...we've had them since we were dating and never regretted...it's so heart warming everytime we received letters, pics and updates from them... Knowing that our $$ has been well spent and put to good use!!!
I would encourage each and every one of u to do ur part and help a lil' one in need... 
The world would be a better place if each one of us play a part in it! 
After all we are all gonna die some day...
If $$ is the issue, Just skip ur weekly Starbucks coffee sessions :) 
God has been showering us with blessings upon blessings so that we can be a blessing to others!!!

It's never too late to start...just take a look at their website... there's so many children waiting for u!!! also there's babies being born everyday that need our help! 
Sign up at Compassion international....http://www.compassion.com/
Don't worry ur $$ will go to ur sponsored child...
"Compassion has been a trusted charity since 1952. 
Numerous financial accountability groups and accrediting agencies have recognized Compassion for superior financial integrity." Quoted from compassion website...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!!! Lets be thankful and contented with what we already have :)
P/s: Oh how I miss Black Friday shopping back in the USA... Lining up in the cold winter in the wee hours with mr. Boyfriend back then to score good deals :) happy shopping!!!

Outings to the Science centre and Singapore navy ship

Okayyyy due to pregnancy brain fart, I announced (in my previous post) that I just entered my 3rd trimester!!! But then soon realized that it wasn't the case...am at 27 Weeks and 1 day...
And since I'm still in my honeymoon trimester, yeayyy, I have been out and about enjoying just being OUT with the FAM...

We went to the science centre... Ok ok, before being all jugdemental... Firstly, We aren't nerds! But since me and mr. Hubby are both computer science major with (MBA - mr. hubby, Maths and MIS minor - ahem...me), we decided why not expose baby Si at an early age :p

Ok ok in actuality, the science centre had its 35th Anniversary Open House!!! 
Admission was FREE and its nearby mr. Hubby's office and our home... 
So there wasn't any reason to not go...

From the looks of the pics...mr. Hubby enjoyed it more than baby Si! 
I guess baby Si is way too young after all...
Then we headed for dinner at our favorite "dating" restaurant... It has been a while Chillis!!! So as a revenge, we went all out and ordered an appetizer, "Chips and Queso"... 2 main meals, our all time fav "Cajun chicken sandwich"... Those breaded onions on top of it makes it so worthwhile... And best of all, baby Si got her 1st ever kids meal!!! We ordered chicken nuggets and corn on a cob for her...but sadly, she didn't like it...(trying to expose her to outside food, but I guess she still prefers mummy's home-cook food)... So baby Si kid's meal ended up in mummy's tummy for baby KarMie#2! And best of all, the kids meal was FREE!!! Free kids meal if u were to dine in before 6pm...great marketing skills...we will definitely be back for more... Not that we wouldn't... Felt like we were in a buffet! Thankfully we weren't ambitious enuff to order dessert...

2nd outing was to see "The BIGGEST hardware display in town"!!! 
THE Singapore NAVY ship named "RSS ENDURANCE"....
Okayyyy...am not a big fan of this...
but since its a once in a lifetime opportunity and we had to BALLOT for the tickets (and successfully got it).... I thought to myself, must be something worth going to! Even though the fine print says, "There are steep staircases on the landing ship tank. Pregnant women, children below 0.9m, and those with infants in arms or with mobility problems may face difficulties moving around the ship."

Well, when we got there, we found many mummies and daddies baby wearing their infants and toddlers in tow... But boy was it steep navigating my huge belly up and down the steep staircases...and the tiny aisles... I told mr, hubby that I will never be a sailor women! Claustrophobia got the better of me... And those tiny little bunk beds and tiny tiny long long aisles and staircase u have to walk thru... Ishhhh...nightmare!!! 
But put me in a $exy uniform and a cabin tube 20,000 feet up in the air (with good looking passengers of coz)... Hell yeah!!! Anytime baybehhhh...

We talked to some navy men and they said they can be away for 2 months at a time!!! Can u imagine no Facebook??? Gessshhh, they be so "lost" at "sea" by the time they see land... At least up in the air, u are gone at most 10-12 hrs before having to come down to land to refuel...

Baby Si had an unforgettable experience...
She still till today will say...."airplane...fan fan fan... Turn turn turn...sit with papa" 
<- sitting with papa in the helicopter...

We ended the night by treating ourselves to Marche...German sausages, potato roschti, chicken crepes, minus the German beer...yumz!!! Was tempted to try the ginger beer though...hehehe 

Oh btw, we are also planning on a short getaway soon...BABYMOONING...before baby KarMie#2 pops out!! Who says 3rd trimester cannot be a honeymoon trimester :p

More pics can be found on mr. Hubby fb...

Happy 19 months baby Si!!!

Happy 19 months baby Si!!!

Baby Si turned 19 months on 6th nov 2013!!! Which is today....yeayyyy!!! 
(18 months old post <~ if u missed it)

Sadly, we decided to stop doing our monthly family tradition of taking Polaroid pics 
(running out of fridge space to display her pics...)
18 mths was the last one and a good place to stop...so to be continued once baby KarMie#2 arrives...stay tuned!!!

Hopefully baby Si pics will cheer up ur day!!! It did cheer us up when snapping these pics... :)

Milestones reached:
. can wear and take out her own shoes
. Say big words like "playground", "bicycle", "exercise", "container", "alamak" but still struggling to say her name "sienna"... She calls herself as nana!
. can say poo poo coming!!! time for mummy to start potty training? *lazy mode* but need to start before baby KarMie2 arrives..since baby Si poo poos 3-5 times a day!!!
. Can use a fork on her own to eat cut fruits
. Can sing happy birthday!!! In her soft singing voice...

HAPPY DEEPAVALI from us...the NAGAS!!!

Thanks to uncle viswanadhan and aunty geetha (karthik's sister's in laws) for baby Si first Indian outfit...
Baby Si liked it so much that she was dancing in front of the mirror and prancing around showing off her dress very proudly when we were out n about... 

We celebrated deepavali by eating Indian food the whole day!!! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper...
Mr. Hubby was a happy man..."happy belly, happy hubby"!!! And this mummy n baby KarMie#2 were also happy customers as I found the best Briyani in Singapore so far... It comes with "melt in your mouth" mutton and the spicyness level was just right for me which was SPICY!!! And best of all, it is nearby our house! Double, triple yeayyyy!!! 
Was reminiscing with mr. Hubby and still remember the best Briyani we had was in USA...downtown Indiana and not to forget our friend (kas and niaz) home cooked one... 
But I still heard comments from friends that the BEST of the BEST can be found in LOndon...excuse to go to London, mr. Hubby??? So funny that I've been all over the world but have not had the chance to tour London? Just made a pitstop for a few hours there :(
Can't wait to go there once the "babies" are bigger and this mummy n daddy can go on a longggg getaway!!!
