Malaysia Day Parade

Hubby brought Evan to Dataran Merdeka to watch the 48th Malaysia Day Parade. Both of them took the LRT, armed with an umbrella and some snacks. As for Marissa, she was a sleeping beauty up till 9am so she missed the fun. Anyway, here are some of the pics taken:

Angry Birds Lantern Parade

Angry Birds are everywhere! Even on lanterns for the Mid-Autumn Festival this year. I found these sturdy paper lanterns at a stationery shop in PJ Old Town. It has an internal glowing light which changes color from red to blue once it's switched on. No irritating melodies like some of the battery-operated plastic lanterns available in the market. Price was RM6.50 each. Comes with a retractable plastic stick with hook.

We had a short lantern parade in the vicinity of our condo.  No other children were out with their lanterns at all but there were adults swimming and exercising at the gym. 

Hubby and I had lanterns too - the traditional candle lit ones!

The 10 Commandments

Larry went through the 10 commandments with Evan one day. It's actually part of the memory verses taught in kindergarten. He stumbled on the 5th commandment though!

On another note.... in addition to being the "Clean-up Fairy" at home, he's also now into opening/closing car doors.....

A Good Helper

My little helper at home always makes his bed, including his sister's and mine too. On a typical school day like today (after the long Raya hols), he wakes up before 7am by himself....  he climbs up on a stool to take his uniform from the wardrobe..... changes into his school uniform..... puts the clothes into the laundry bag...... then gobbles down his breakfast of oats or cereal..... puts on his socks.... and then patiently waits for his father to send him to school! Sometimes when he's up very early, he even tidies up his own room and arranges his toys and belongings neatly on the shelf. Hubby and I are so impressed with him that he gets little surprises or rewards e.g. a treat in the car on the way to school or extra time on the iPad.
