Remembering Lee Kuan Yew (1923 - 2015)

I feel that I need to incorporate this into Tromson's blog so when he grows up and takes over this blog, he can read and remember what makes him to be a proud Singaporean.

Last week was mourning week to Singapore and Singaporean. The departure of our founding father, Lee Kuan Yew has touched many people here including mommy.
When mommy came here and settled down here, mommy often takes for granted the facility in Singapore eventhough I have not so much complain since I feel grateful living here than in Indonesia.

But during the 7 weeks of mourning, all TV channels showing the history of Singapore, the 50 years journey and what Mr Lee Kuan Yew has done for this country from nothing to first world country.
I feel so amazed with the great man full of inspiration and dedication to the country.
Not ever in my life, I meet or read the person like him.

I feel very sad too when I saw in TV how senior citizens have benefited most from LKY cried and knelt down in front of his coffin or photo.

His life gives me inspirations to continue his legacy to all my children. I'll make sure all my children will make the country proud or at least didn't make trouble hehe...

This is 11 things I learn from him :

1. Live Simply to the fullest
2. Hard work hard work hard work
3. Do your best in whatever job or task we do
4. Modern hardship to prevent complacency
5. Walk a talk in family
6. Spend quality time with children
7. Set it right for the children from young
8. Love your partner till the death do us apart
9. Love of family is the source of life
10. Chase your dream as high as possible, the sky is the limit
11. Learning for a lifetime

Here's the link about Mr. Lee Kuan Yew : Remembering Lee Kuan Yew

We had no chance to go to parliament house or cc to pay tribute but we had a privilege to send him off when his cortage passed our house twice to UCC and Mandai.

Night Terror Attacks

It's been few weeks that he has night terror attacks. Suddenly out of blue, he can scream and cried it out loud with eyes shout. When we tried to calm him down, he became worse. So I just let him be until he cooled down by himself.
It's annoying sometimes especially when we are in deep sleep then suddenly he cried it out loud.
But nothing we could do, except closing our ears and eyes and continue sleeping again.

Hopefully it's just phasing stage and will be over soon...haishhh....

Color sorting with bubbles straws

After two weeks break from homeschooling activity, here Tromson with new activity this week.
Color sorting with bubble straws.
To make it not overwhelmed with color, mommy only gives him three colors : Red, Yellow and Green
He has some improvements in sorting but his attention span is shorter than usual. Perhaps he finds it a bit boring hahaha....

Finally graduate from breastfeeding (18.5 mos)

He now can sleep on his own day or night.
In the day, he could nap for 3 hours without any pacifying and at night also.

But this few days, he couldn't sleep well at night, I bet he has teething for last wisdom teeth.
Hopefully it's over soon

Well done Tromson !
