Ryan will tell me when he wants to pee. I have monitored for this whole month, he will always come to me/take the pot & pass it to me when he has the urge to pee pee. But this notty boy like to wait till last min, then will pee pee. Sometimes he will run & run in the living room while I am taking the pot for him to pee.You can imagine how notty he is. As Ryan drinks plenty of water,give him water using sippy cup every hourly, so he will pee very frequently. Not to forget about the barley water, he will drink 2 cups of barley water (without sugar) everyday. Ryan likes to drink barley water alot. Ryan will only stick to diaper during nap & night time & outings.
Recently I can see some development in poo poo training, Ryan will give me a sign that he is going to do his big biz. He will point at the pot and wanna sit there. However, there is a time he will bluff me too. He will take the pot,take off his pant & sit at the pot for 10 mins, but nothing is there. Pengsan ** another notty act!
Hope Ryan will be able to complete his potty training when he reaches his 2nd birthday in 2 months time!!

I will be staying at Chinatown area, renting a room(more cheaper compared to hotel) while my other buddies Chin & SuYing will be staying at hotel.
Our plan :go to Orchard Rd,Sentosa,Singapore Zoo,Singapore Flyer,VivoCity(@Harbourfront MRT),Bugis area,CityHall area and makan-makan.
It can be a tiring journey for me & hubby as we are bringing Ryan along. This year, we are not going to bring his stroller along as Ryan refused to sit at stroller nowadays. He wants to walk by himself. We hope he will be cooperative during the whole holiday trip.
Wish Us Have A Pleasent Holiday !!
NB: Agnes,SuYing & Chin - see u gals soon!!

Last Sat 29th Nov 2008 was my BIL's Big Day. I have to wake Ryan up early in the morning around 7am as the bride&groom would reach home around 7 plus. I have to rush and get Ryan ready before they reached home. Everything was ready by 7.30am.
Not to forget snapped a family picture for memories and Ryan also posed with the wedding car.
At night, we have a simple wedding dinner at the restaurant. Ryan started to get fussy and cranky while dishes started to serve. Both daddy & I having a hard time as Ryan refused to sit at high chair.No choice, he sat at either his daddy's lap or my lap. After 5 dishes were served, at last we decided to bring Ryan out for a walk as he seem getting impatient to go out for a fresh air. He was so happy can walk here and there till the dinner was ended. Such a tiring day!!

After cutting the lotus root into small pieces, put them into boiling water, add wolfberries and red dates. I used chicken breast meat to add the sweetness to the soup. Cooked for 45mins. For your info, lotus roots are still crunchy after cooking for 45mins. Therefore I decided not to put the lotus root into the porridge when I cooked the porridge this morning.Kept the lotus root soup overnight.
This morning, I used this soup base to cook the porridge for Ryan. I did added in the chicken breast meat,wolfberries and red dates into the porridge too. It turns out to have a very sweet taste for the porridge. Ryan loves to eat these porridge too.
Sorie no picture for sharing this time as I was too busy & forget about it. Will do it next time!

Smile Smile ... What is Mommy trying to blog about ?? When I was browsing thru Ryan's pictures collection tonight , I noticed some of his pictures are full of Sweet Smiles.
Therefore I decided to drag out some of the nice smile pictures and started to do my Smile Project. Frankly speaking, I am not so familiar with Power Point(almost forget how to use it) ... take few hours for me to figure out how it works and at last my project is done.
Phew ***.... Do I feel satisfied with my own creation ??? No comments. I need my Blogger Friends to give me some comments. Feel to dropby....*-*
Happy Weekend 2 all my dear Friends!!

Ryan is playing with my handphone again ... his itchy hand like to press the front button of my handphone which can play out some songs (rocks song). I found out that Ryan like to listen to Rocks song like Bon Jovi. Apart from pressing the handphone button, Ryan also like to dig out the button. All these 3 buttons were re-attached before using double tape *** I plan to re-decorate my handphone while I am going to Singapore next month.
Lastweek ,my MIL bought a Musical Barney for Ryan on her trip to JB.
I love you
You love me
We're a happy family
With a great big hug
And a kiss from me to you
Won't you say you love me too?
When Ryan saw it for the 1st time, he was very happy. Then I was told my mil that Barney can sing a song, So I pressed Barney's tummy and Ryan kept say Mai Mai Mai (don't want) when he heard the song. He did not want the Barney to sing a song...OMG, my boy is very weird. I thought he must be happy when heard this song, but then....it is did not happen this way.
Then he carried Barney here and there and even sleep with Barney on that night. From that day onward, I never pressed the Barney's tummy since Ryan did not like it to sing a song. Everytime I asked him : Ryan, where is your Barney??He quickly go find and showed me his Barney.
Last few days, he even played his Barney on my bed...my bed has become his playground. I quickly grabbed my camera and snapped some pictures while he was busying with his Barney.
I hope one day can bring Ryan to see real Barney show. Ryan sure very very happy if really can see the show. He loves to listen to Mother Goose rhymes, so now I become the fate Mother Goose, have to remember all the lyrics and sing songs for Ryan everyday before his nap time. See Ryan happy, Mommy also happy. It brighten up my DAYS !!
Ryan has 2 barneys at home : Hand puppet Barney and Musical Barney. I hope can get whole set of Barney & Friends soft toys (Barney,Baby Bop,BJ & Riff)for Ryan on my coming Dec trip in Singapore.
Lets check out Barney USA website - http://www.barney.com/usa/friends.asp

While he is walking up the stairs, I will always say ONE TWO THREE ... ONE TWO THREE ... ONE TWO THREE, so he can learn about numbers too while walking up the stairs. Does it a good idea??
Hope Ryan can walk up & down the stairs by himself soon ... of course, with mommy /daddy's at his side.

I was so happy riding my bicycle around the living room. Actually I am riding it, but using both my legs to push the bicycle around. I still don't know how to paddle yet. Still learning...
...I am so happy while mommy snapped some pictures of mine...I gave her my sweet smiles!!
As you can see, I was wearing Superman pant tonight. Mommy has been teaching me how to say 'superman',....but I can only say ' batmen' at the moment. So everytime when I saw mommy take his superman clothes for me to wear, I will say 'batmen'. Oh..Gosh, how can superman become batman????
Ryan like to play with any kind of phone(either housephone or handphone). Once he grabbed the phone, he will start talking (***baby talks *** aya....ahh ahhh ahh....ya ya ya ma ma.......).
Tonight when I saw him took his daddy's handphone & started talking, I faster grabbed the camera and snapped this 2 pictures as a memories. From the picture showed above, I was enjoying talking on the phone and watching TV at same time.
Recently Ryan is very stick to DIGI advertisement (have the Quack Quack Duck) & KFC advertisement (some people are dancing promoting about KFC new food- KFC in satay style). His eyes will just stare on the TV...and same time shake shake his body. Too bad I did not managed to snap the pictures while he is acting.

Dr.Law gave PCM for fever (in case) and some Annum milk formula sample (which is not taken by Ryan - whoever want this sample, can let me noe).
Then we headed to Fish shop to see fishes, next stop is to view our new house (only 60% completed),last stop is going to Farley Supermarket to buy some groceries,not to forget ur lunch KFC (favo fried chicken).
For breakfast & lunch, Ryan is having carrot+tomatoes porridge.

Oyster mushroom is a new vegetable for Ryan. This time, I cook it in the porridge together with shredded carrot and sweet corn. It will serve as Ryan 's breakfast & lunch for today. (as I updated this post on 7th Nov'08 @12.45am,so it considered as today)
Hope Ryan will like to eat this porridge *-*
Quoted from website :
Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus Ostreatus) is a fleshy, gilled mushroom growing in shelf-like fashion on wood that is a good food and promising medicinal. Protein quality is nearly equal to animal derived protein. Low fat content is mostly of the good unsaturated kind. Also contained are carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins B1, B2, plus minerals, especially iron and an antioxident. This mushroom shows activity against cancer and high cholesterol. It has shown activity in the following areas: antitumor, immune response, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibiotic.
Another porridge recipe to check it - http://kuali.com/recipes/viewrecipe.asp?r=261out : (can substitute the abalone/shitake mushroom to Oyster mushroom)

This is a life of SAHM (stay at home Mother). It does not mean that I am complaining about my life. I really enjoying my precious moments with Ryan all the time. I can play with him, read story book, watch TV together, etc....The best is to see Ryan smiles & laughs happily and grows healthier everyday. My tiredness is gone & his smile will brighten up my DAY.
Let's back to the topic that I am going to recommend to my blogger friends. I came across this programme called "My Smart Healthy Baby" from NTV7 3 weeks ago when I was surfing the TV channel.

After hair cut
Last Monday (3rd Nov'08), mommy brought me for a hair cut after my breakfast. Ryan sure will cry again...but lucky this time he is more cooperative with his grandma around (my MIL). Grandma is the one who hug him while he is having his hair cut. He just cried awhile and did not moved alot.
*****5 mins later, a new look is Up ( pretty short hair ), looks more tidy & fresher.******
Last Sat (1st Nov'08) is Ryan's 21 months old ... time flies pretty fast, another 3 more months he is going to be 2 years old boy. Almost time to go school (that's mommy plan). Next year ,Ryan will celebrate his 2nd birthday in Medan-Indonesia(mommy's hometown) again.
Okie,...Let's talk about my development on my 21 months old :
1. Speech : some new words are coming - bear(teddy bear or any cute soft toys),batman (batman/superman),egg,be(bread),apple(pe),go go go.
2. Know where is his ear,nose,mouth,eyes,head(must say wear hat - then he will point his head), leg(must say put on shoes - then he will point his leg).
3. Know how to do smelly action esp after he did his big biz.
4. Like to listen to Mother Goose rhythms (from barney vcds) and Doraemon song.
5. Will kiss & hug mommy & daddy when we ask him to do so.
6. Show an interest to play/cycle his bicycle....most of the time still use his legs to push the bicycle around the living room.
7. Teeth : not able to count
8. Weight : around 13kgs
9. Height : long time never measured
10. Food : porridge (breakfast + lunch), rice with vege/fish,etc (dinner),meesuah soup, meehoon/kuetiau/mee soup, fried meehoon,kuetiau/mee. No spicy foods and does not really like to eat cake,but like to eat biscuits.
11. Fruit : apple,pear,plum,orange,grapes,rambutans(recently rambutan season...just let him eat abit). Does not like durians.
12. Like to help mommy's do houseworks...MY GOOD BOY, RYAN !!!
Plums are high in fiber, low in cholesterol, sodium free and rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C.They are great aids in reducing the risks of cancer and heart attack and sustaining healthy cholesterol levels. As Plums are high in fiber and natural sugars, they help maintain bowel regularity. Plums are great to help with constipation.

Last Monday, I think of another way to cook tofu for Ryan's dinner. He seem does not like to eat tofu soup,I guess it is too plain for him although I did eat pork and thong chai into the soup. Therefore, I decided to cook the tofu in different way.I fried some of the tofus,cooked together with sliced pork(marinated with osyter sos+sesame oil),carrots,and brocoli. I never add MSG into Ryan's food. So my best seasoning is Osyter sos + mushroom powder.
This dishes turn out great and Ryan likes it. At least, my effort is paid off.**-**
For fruit, I introduced an ORANGE for Ryan. These oranges is pretty cheap, I got it during the promo...only RM0.20/pc. First, I peel off the orange skins, section the orange,peel off the membranes - that stringy stuff that covers the "meat" of the orange,then slices it into small pieces.
Oranges, like all citrus fruits, are acidic and more than likely to give babies younger than 12 months old rashes due to the acidity.Not just a great source of vitamin c, oranges have a myriad of vitamins and other nutrients that make them tops for a refreshing and healthy snack.
Ryan loves orange too!!

I would like to share this good website with all my blogger friends here.
Pls check out :
Enjoy Cooking !!

Yesterday, I cooked Lotus Root soup for Ryan's dinner. This is the 3rd time I cook this soup for him and he likes it.
Lotus root is full of fiber and various vitamins and other nutrients. In Asia it’s believed to have various medicinal qualities, but in macro-nutrient terms it’s best to think of it as a starchy vegetable, like potato. Visually of course, it’s very appealing with all those little holes.A nice fresh one is a light orangey-brown. The older the root the browner and darker it is.
After peeling off the skins, I cut into thin slices, add some pork ribs,red dates and khi chee. Cooked for about 2 hours...the longer you cook, the softer the Lotus Root and the soup taste is yummier.
Here are another 2 recipes on how to cook lotus root for sharing :
1. served as a salad
2. stir fried with sesame +green onions.

I cooked the brocoli with Japanese tofu and add some sliced pork. First I cut the brocoli into small pieces,then soak in salt water to get rid of any dirty stuffs stucked inside the vege for about 1 hour (tips from my sis).Then I boiled the brocoli in hot water,so that they will become soft and can maintain the greenish look. It is best not to stir fried the brocoli very long after you have boiled it, coz its colour will become yellowish and does not looks fresh. Brocoli is Ryan's favo vegetable,normally I will cook it with porridge as well.
***Happy Tuesday ***
Monday, October 27, 2008
Potatoes is one of Ryan's favo vegetable. The nutritional value of Potatoes is really not all that high. While potatoes have respectable amounts of Vitamin A and Vitamin C, as well as potassium, their starch component is high.
This time, I cooked the potatoes with chicken. I marinated the chicken with Hoisin + Osyter sauce for 1 hour before cooking them with potatoes. Added some garlics and gingers too.
The taste is just nice and Ryan likes this combination. Tonight,Ryan can finish up full bowl of rice with HOISIN CHICKEN POTATOES(cooked by me) + Steam Egg(cooked by MIL).

(1) & (2)
Every night, I will play around with this laundry basket .. push push push here & there, from living room to dining room and then back to the living room. I just feel happy playing with it. There is a night while both me & hubby were watching TV in the living room....Ryan came to us with the laundry basket and demanded his daddy to put him in to the laundry basket. Ok.....so he was in and followed us happily watching tv too. Not to miss the chance, I faster went upstair grab the camera and snapped few pictures of it as a memories.
Showed on pic (1) & (2)
After standing inside the laundry for about 5mins, Ryan started to make noises.....He seem getting bored already...wanna to come out. He tried to lift up his leg to climb out from the basket...of course, he could not do it.So Daddy helped to carry him out from the basket. Wouh....at last I'm released, a 'free man' , can run here and there in the living room.

I believe everybody see EggPlant before. This is Ryan's new dish for tonight. I have been wanting to let him try out this vege, but just worry he does not like it. Last weekend, I decided to buy some eggplants to let him try. But then another problem raised up...how to cook the eggplant? Normally my mum will cook with chilly,etc...in spicy style. But for Ryan, of course, I can't put any chillies.
I decided to add some carrots & marinated chicken breast meats to the eggplants...it smells nice and Ryan can sapu whole bowl of rice + eggplants finish during his dinner. I feel happy that my efforts did not wasted, Ryan like to eat eggplant.
As for his breakfast & lunch , I cooked cucumber porridge(with chicken meat) for today. He can finish up the whole bowl too.Good boy!!
Tomorrow is another new day....I will cook : corn porridge(breakfast+lunch),celery tofu(dinner).
Sunday, October 19, 2008
Can't see the cauliflower in above pic as I cut into very very small pieces.
Yesterday morning, I cooked Cauliflower porridge for Ryan as his breakfast + lunch.
For his dinner, I used cauliflower with Japanese Tofu' & 'tomatoes' & 'fishballs'. Actually, I wanna added some carrots, too bad my fridge is out of stock for carrot, therefore I replaced with tomatoes. Ryan like to eat tomatoes alot.
As usual, I used marinated chicken breast meat for the sweetness.In order for Ryan to chew the cauliflower easily, I cut them into small pieces.
No MSG on Ryan's food, just add bit of salt & mushroom seasonings powder.
I am so happy that Ryan can finish up his dinner in 15 mins time.....pretty fast for him.
I have thought for tomorrow menu :
meesuah soup(breakfast),king mee soup(lunch) & lotus root soup(dinner).
Another weekend for Ryan ... hope he will like to menu arrangement I have made for him.
