.... went for McDonald's open house since it is her favourite fast food. During the short tour, daddy keep saying 'then why is it called junk food?' when the 'tour guide' talked about the healthy and hygiene standards used in McDonald's.
.... Kathleen tried her first half boiled egg and loved it (eating 2 at one go!)
.... Went for a children's play with some forum friends.....
Also started her 3 more enrichment classes - phonics (home based, just not my home! :P), swimming (nearby pool), and Chinese (at community centre).

Managed to sign her up for berries starting 2012, so we will see how it turns out. Hopefully it will give her a good foundation to enable her to develop a like (love is abit extreme) for the language and to self read. But there goes my social life as both Saturday and Sunday will be busy.
The little girl promises the following for 2012 :
- no more carrying
- no more stroller (already asking for it)
- self feeding (already ask me to feed her)
- self bathing
- self wiping after pee and poo
- sleep in her own bedroom (never happen cos she still has a fear of fire)
For mommy, 2011 is abit too eventful. Something happened in the family, and we tried to rally around abit, and I wonder if K will get the same support from her friends (since she does not have siblings) or cousins if she encounter problems in her life next time. My health is not exactly good, some still unresolved. My netbook had a near-death experience (no thanks Samsung Kies!). Still have to juggle work, parent volunteer, and taking care of the little girl.
Might be restricting access to her blog after she goes to primary school. Am quite comfortable with the security level at her child care (there is usually an adult near to the main gate, and they had recently installed another gate inside to prevent adults from going in after this year's HFMD scare) but there is no guarantee of the security in primary schools since the compound is much larger, or in the student care if the arrangement comes to that. Or maybe might even stopped blogging and switch to facebook or other medium since I find it harder and harder to find time for anything. Even falling sick is a luxury (think many mommies agreed with this) that I can hardly afford.
Hopefully I can complete the parent volunteer soon (though balloting is almost guarantee), and clear up my health issues soon. And hope for less work! :)
